Pixel 6 Official Pre-Launch VIDEO, Google Jio Phone DELAYED, OpenShot UPDATE, and MORE! Photo & Tech News #3
Heya all! It’s time for the photo and tech news from 9/3–9/10/2021! Let’s get started!
- I am going to start with what is without a doubt the biggest news! Google has released a teaser video on the official Made by Google YouTube channel with shots of Pixel 6 phones that are not generated by a computer! We have actual seen of in use Pixel 6 devices! This is so huge and exciting for the smartphone industry. I would love to know why 1.7k people don’t like this tho…
- Dark mode on Google.com is coming! What does this mean? Basically, although the app had dark mode, the site does not in other browsers! This is now changing, and now dark mode is available for all!
- The James Bond Leica camera is here! This has some wonderful specs and it really isn’t all show, if the specs can tell us anything, it is that it will take nice photos!
- Microsoft finally realized that people were concerned about Windows 11 not being available on a lot of machines. Luckily, Microsoft does actually realize the issue and will have a method to get you on Windows 11 no matter what!
- A Google Weather redesign is out bringing the new weather design to the Weather app!
- The affordable 4g phone from Google and Jio’s $4.5 Million collaboration has been delayed. When the phone arrives, it will run the Google Go apps and be the most affordable 4g phone on the Indian market!
- Xiaomi’s 120w charger is coming and you better believe that your phone will be full in 25 minutes!
- The Director of Google Stadia has left. Their certainly seems to be a large amount of internal issues at Google right now and this is only one of many employees that have left Google. This person helped build Stadia, but with Stadia’s future so unsure, it makes sense. There is a lot of speculation that Stadia is going to join the Google Graveyard taking Google out of the major cloud gaming market (except for GooglePlayGames of course)
- OpenShot had an update! I am still experimenting with this editor and have no full blog posts out yet, but they have added new audio effects, stabilization (finally!) and some other really cool things utilizing AI!
- Although not the best renders ever, we have some new DJI Mavic 3 renders! From this and other leaks, we know that the drone will be carrying a sweet looking Hasselblad camera again! I mean, they own Hasselblad, but it does not stop the cameras from looking cool!
- Xiaomi is pushing the limits of what is possible with a budget phone by making the cheapest full 5g phone IN THE WORLD! Now, it isn’t a new phone (sadly), but they have dropped the Redmi Note 10 5G price to next level 5g affordability!
- DYI photography has this super cool article showing the cameras that have been shown on camera in the Spiderman films and shows. It seems that unlike most films, this one has no set company. Cameras from Canon, Nikon, and Yashica show up across the shows and films.
- Fellow Google Pixel fans, we have a new feature! It is called “Smart Storage” and works as Google Photos kinda does by deleting backed up photos and videos, but this is in Google Files and will automatically do it after a certain number of days!
