Galaxy Watch 6 and Watch 6 Classic will share battery specs
The ultimate puzzle piece, pertaining to the batteries powering the soon-to-be-unleashed Galaxy Watch 6 series, has been unearthed. Courtesy of a listing available on an online platform, belonging to a regulatory body located in China, the battery capacities for both the standard Galaxy Watch 6 and Watch 6 Classic, in all of their sizes, have now been revealed.
This recently-acquired information indicates that the two largest models within the Galaxy Watch 6 lineup, namely, the 44mm Galaxy Watch 6 (SM-R940/SM-R945) and the 46mm Galaxy Watch 6 Classic (SM-R960/SM-R965), will be equipped with the same battery configuration. Specifically, the battery has a rated capacity of 417 mAh, alongside a typical capacity of 425 mAh. With the exception of the hypothetical Watch 6 Pro, the entire series has an identical battery configuration.
There is presently no additional data on the rumored Galaxy Watch 6 Pro or its battery capacity – assuming this device is indeed in the works. It’s possible that earlier reports referring to the Watch 6 Pro were in fact describing the Classic variant, meaning that there may not be a Pro version released this year. Of all the rumors surrounding the upcoming Galaxy Watch 6 series, the potential reappearance of the physical rotating bezel is perhaps the most fascinating. Supposedly, the release of the Galaxy Watch 6 Classic will mark the return of this feature that was absent from last year’s lineup after Samsung introduced the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro.
Although information regarding a release date is currently unavailable, an informed prediction would suggest that Samsung is planning to unveil the Galaxy Watch 6 series in the August-September timeframe at the Unpacked event, alongside the Galaxy Z Fold 5 and Z Flip 5, as well as the Galaxy Tab S9 tablet lineup. There is no information yet on whether the Korean technology giant plans to announce a new set of wireless earbuds later this year, but we will keep you informed of any developments.
OpenAI Releases More Powerful AI Named chat GPT 4
GPT 4 has finally arrived it leaves chat GPT In the dust it can convert a drawing on a napkin into a functional website it can even explain to you a joke from a series of images. GPT 4 in comparison to its previous model it’s multimodal now this simply means that unlike previous versions of GPT which were only text-based. GPT 4 can accept and process images as well as text I wouldn’t be surprised if there’s an audio component to this as well but for the time being open AI simply did a demonstration showcasing an example of their image-to-text processing the first one is on their website where they gave AI difficult task of explaining a joke based on series of images this image is of an iPhone but it’s charging with a VGA cable and GPT 4 accurately was able to identify all the elements in the photo.
OpenAI’s recently launched Chat GPT 4 is a significant improvement over its predecessor, the GPT-3.5, which powered ChatGPT until now. Chat GPT 4 can process a staggering 25,000 words and is capable of understanding and responding to images. This is a major development that has impressed those who were already impressed by ChatGPT.
With Chat GPT-4, users can provide an image of their ingredients and ask the chatbot to create a recipe, which it will do by analyzing the picture and generating a detailed description. This is just one example of the many ways in which AI is slowly but surely taking over jobs that were once the sole domain of humans. However, GPT-4 is not infallible, and there is a risk that it may sometimes provide incorrect information or create completely untrue facts due to what OpenAI calls “hallucinations”.
Chat GPT-4’s capabilities are due in part to the fact that it has been trained on a much larger database than its predecessor. Microsoft CEO Bill Gates is among the many people who have been impressed by GPT-4, stating that he is now a fan of ChatGPT. However, OpenAI warns that AI is not perfect and users should exercise caution when relying on its output.
Despite its flaws, Chat GPT-4 is already being used as an integrated feature on the Microsoft Bing browser and is available to ChatGPT Plus subscribers for a subscription fee of $20. It will be interesting to see how this AI technology evolves in the future and how it will continue to impact our lives in ways we never thought possible.
This weird Google Pixel 7 camera glitch can prevent you from saving photos
The Google Pixel 7 and its Pro counterpart have undergone substantial advancements since their unveiling in October 2022. These devices had a handful of issues upon their initial release, but Google was able to rectify nearly all of them through software updates. Nevertheless, on occasion, a strange Pixel defect can emerge, leaving you perplexed. Recently, an unusual malfunction was discovered with the Pixel 7 causing it to crash when playing a specific YouTube video clip. Currently, yet another nonsensical complication has surfaced, involving the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro cameras, which are unwilling to preserve close-up zoom captures.
A digital content creator who goes by the handle Reddit/u/MintySkyhawk recently shared a video featuring his Pixel 7 Pro, which seemed to be unable to store photos of his PC’s inner workings when taken using the device’s 5x periscope lens in conjunction with the flash. The camera works flawlessly when capturing images from a zoom lens, but fails to save any photos of the computer’s internals, without any apparent cause. Interestingly, the issue persists regardless of whether the cabinet’s glass side panel is present or not.
Subsequently, another Reddit user attempted to replicate the problem by taking close-up photographs of his denim pants at 5x zoom with flash enabled, yet the smartphone wouldn’t retain the images.
A handful of individuals on Reddit attempted to troubleshoot the predicament by extracting a logcat while utilizing the Google Camera application. From the acquired data, it appears that the complication arises as a result of an issue with HDR. This confirms that the error has more to do with the Google Camera software and its algorithm for processing images than with your Pixel phone. This is to guarantee that you do not capture any unappealing photographs of your intended subject or object.
While waiting for Google to address the issue, one can only marvel at the peculiarities of this bug. In the meantime, the simplest solution is to deactivate the flash and rely on the Pixel 7’s exceptional Night Sight mode instead, ensuring that the issue is avoided.
