Budget planning: it will be hot in October too

    What is autumn, this is our new, long-awaited fifth of our Android. If Yuri Shevchuk composed his song in our time, I am sure that the words would be just like that. And if September almost completely passed under the bitten Apple sign, then October promises to be the month of revenge for Android.

    Let’s bring together again all that should be paid close attention in October. I ask for cat.

    Android L and Nexus not 6

    As a rule, in October two things are expected from Google: a new version of Android and a new Nexus. With Android, everything is more or less clear - the new version is called L, it has an improved design, a more convenient notification system and a much more economical attitude to the battery.

    It is clear that the upgrade will affect the Nexus 5 smartphone and the latest Nexus 7 and 10 tablet models. In addition, judging by the laid out sources , the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 and 10 tablets of the 2012 release should receive updates. Very, as they say, we hope.

    But relatively new nexus is not yet known very much. Rumor has it that the tablet, codenamed Nexus 9 will be releasing HTC. The fact is that recently Nvidia filed a lawsuit against Samsung and Qualcomm, in the text of which there is a curious phrase "the upcoming HTC Nexus 9, which is due to appear in the third quarter of 2014, is supposed to be built on the basis of Tegra K1." Now the text of the lawsuit has been edited, but the leak turned out to be notable.

    Thus (if true), the future tablet will have a very powerful video chip containing as many as 192 cores. Moreover, they say that K1 is specially “imprisoned” for Android L.


    As for the future smartphone, it is known for sure that it will not be called Nexus 6. The fact is that the name “Nexus-6” was used in the book “Do Androids Dream About electro-sheep ”- there such a model of the electronic brain was installed in runaway robots. In general, it turns out that this number is already taken. The next Nexus 7 has also been associated with tablets for a long time and so far only Nexus 8 and everything after dozens are free. Against this background, the most logical rumor is about the Nexus X, which will make the famous smartphone manufacturer with the letter “X” - Motorola.

    The expected appearance of the Nexus X compared to the Nexus 5. The screen size was taken as "arithmetic average".

    Possible characteristics of the Nexus X:
    Display with a diagonal of 5.2 ”(or 5.9” sources differ here) and with a resolution of 1440x2560;
    Processor: 2.7 GHz Snapdragon 805 chipset;
    Memory: 3 GB RAM, 32 GB ROM;
    Camera: 13.1-megapixel and shooting in 4K;
    and of course Android 5.0 (Android L).
    Full estimated characteristics can be found here .

    In general, the idea of ​​a 5.9-inch screen makes more sense. There is competition with the iPhone 6 Plus, and the understanding that the Nexus 5 is still more than a decent device to change it, and in general - with such a screen, a resolution greater than that of many TVs will look at least a little logical. But let's see.

    More news from the Android camp: in October, the start of sales of the first truly round watch LG G Watch R on Android Wear is scheduled. If you remember, the other round Moto360 watch had an annoying black sector at the very bottom of the dial - there was a display controller hiding there. And Moto360 were made on a very outdated and energy-inefficient hardware. LG boasts that they have managed to do everything much better.

    Expected features: Snapdragon 400 processor, OLED display, 410 mAh battery (usually the brothers at the factory have 320 mAh). Well, a pleasant appearance in addition.


    As I wrote above, October will be held under the sign of Android. But you should not forget about Apple. It is expected that on October 21 the announcement of new iPads will take place - with a diagonal of 7.9 and 9.7 inches. Those. quite standard. It is assumed that they will receive a new A8 processor, a fingerprint scanner, acquire more memory and may become even thinner. In general, nothing revolutionary, but a good evolution of a good product.

    By the way, regarding Apple’s predictions, there ’s a funny selection of unsubstantiated rumors about what future apple products will look like. There are funny options.

    Camera of the month

    As the GarbageCollector user rightly pointed out , sales of the updated GoPro HERO4 will start on October 4 .
    The older model boasts the ability to shoot in 4K (and, finally, justify the purchase of such a TV) and a more powerful processor. Price corresponds to permission.

    Surprise of the month

    Last week, it became known that Samsung is halting the sale of laptops (including Chromebooks) in Europe. Like, they don’t buy. Like large computers in general. So Europeans now have to go to the United States for South Korean laptops. Or to us.


    And as usual, in addition to high-profile new products on the network, it is full of small, but very pleasant things. My favorite of the month is a car USB charger in the form of an energy fluxator (or a stream drive - who watched in which translation) from the movie "Back to the Future". Moreover, sparks in glass tubes move - almost all for real.

    The charger has two USB connectors: one for 1A, the other for 2A (for a smartphone and for a tablet). However, we understand that USB is not the main thing there. Price in the States: $ 25. Translated into rubles at the time of writing, 985 p.
