Huawei in talks to divest parts of Honor smartphone business, sources say

By Julie Zhu

HONG KONG (Reuters) – Huawei Technologies Co Ltd is in talks with Digital China Group Co Ltd <000034.SZ> and other suitors to sell parts of its Honor smartphone unit in a deal that could fetch up to 25 billion yuan ($3.7 billion), people with knowledge of the matter said.

Embattled Huawei is resetting its priorities in the face of U.S. sanctions and will focus on its higher-end Huawei phones rather than the Honor brand which is aimed at young people and the budget conscious, they said.

The assets to be sold have yet to be finalised but could include Honor’s brand, research & development capabilities and related supply chain management business, two of the people said.

The deal may be an all-cash sale and could end up smaller, worth somewhere between 15 billion yuan and 25 billion yuan, one of the people said.

the latest smartphone features, specs and cameras compared

The iPhone 12 has a dual lens 12MP camera system and 4K video recording. It can support 2x optical zoom and 5x digital, meaning less blur from far away. 

The Samsung S20 also has a 12 MP dual lens and 4K video, but only offers 1.1x optical zoom and 3x digital. Both boast improved night mode and camera stabilising software, which will make your photos look professional even in the most photographer-unfriendly settings. 

Today, however, smartphone photography is about software as much as specs. Both phones apply serious amounts of computational power to improving photos, and it’s difficult to take bad photos with either.

iPhone 12 vs Samsung S20 battery

Apple said its new iPhones delivered 5G speeds of up to 4 gigabits per second and would be able to balance speed with battery life, which early 5G networks have often been tough on. This means that when a phone

Apple iPhone 12 Pro And iPhone 12 Pro Max Are Resetting The Benchmark For Smartphone Cameras

The Apple iPhone line-up for 2020 line-up brings four iPhones to the table, but what doesn’t change at all is the fact that the Pro devices, the Apple iPhone 12 Pro and the Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max are really resetting the benchmark in terms of photography performance. It was perhaps to be expected, but what has finally been unveiled is in all likelihood more than what anyone of us may have imagined. And that’s just one aspect, because across the board, the Apple iPhone 12 Pro line is a serious upgrade over the iPhone 11 Pro series. Incidentally, the pricing of the Apple iPhone 12 Pro and the Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max remains the same as last year. The Apple iPhone 12 Pro prices start Rs 1,19,900 while

Smartphone data helps predict schizophrenia relapses

Passive data from smartphones—including movement, ambient sound and sleep patterns—can help predict episodes of schizophrenic relapse, according to new Cornell Tech research.

Two papers from the lab of Tanzeem Choudhury, professor of integrated health and technology at Cornell Tech, examined how smartphone data can predict patients’ own self-assessments of their condition, as well as changes in their behavior patterns in the 30 days leading to a relapse.

Early prediction of schizophrenic relapses—potentially dangerous episodes which may involve hallucinations, fears of harm, depression or withdrawal—could prevent hospitalizations, in addition to providing clinicians and patients with valuable information that could improve and personalize their care.

“The goal of this work was to predict digital indicators that are early warning signs of relapse, but these symptoms or changes can be very, very different from one individual to another,” said Dan Adler, doctoral student at Cornell Tech and first author of “Predicting Early Warning

Teracube 2e Review – A More Affordable Sustainable Smartphone

Teracube’s slogan is “Better for your pocket, better for the planet”.  In this Teracube 2e review we do a deeper dive to see if it lives up to the affordable yet sustainable smartphone slogan.

AndroidHeadlines did an early read on this device on launch day. I have been using the Teracube 2e for a little over a week in preparation for this review.

Before we dig into the Teracube 2e review let’s take a look at the company’s philosophy and why they believe their approach is more beneficial to the environment.

Earth and Environment Friendly

Smartphones’ biggest environmental impact comes from the manufacturing process and the e-waste when discarded. According to Teracube, in the U.S. alone, over 151 million cell phones are thrown into landfills every year. To help combat this, the Teracube 2e was designed to help reduce e-waste and smartphone turnover.

Teracube’s devices are good for the environment
