Samsung’s Galaxy Book Flex and Ion laptops boast QLED screens and 10th-gen Intel CPUs



During this year’s SDC (Samsung Developer Conference), the company introduced two new laptops: Galaxy Book Flex and Galaxy Book Ion. Each model is available in two variants: 13 “and 15”. All have some common outstanding features.

First and foremost, the Flex and Ion have QLED Full HD screens (1920 x 1080 pixels), and although Samsung claims that these are the first QLED screens on the market, there are some previous implementations of the technology in the notebook market.

AU Optronics has been producing quantum dot panels for some time, which is in the first iterations of Acer Predator laptops.

However, these QLED panels seem to be superior as they have a maximum brightness of 600 nits, which is truly impressive. The 13- and 15-inch screens in Galaxy Book Flex and Ion also seem to be suitable for outdoor use.

Both devices are compatible with Samsung Wireless PowerShare and can charge their Qi-compatible devices through the touch panel. We wonder if this means you can not use the touch panel while charging your device.

The AKG stereo speakers are also on the menu.

Galaxy Book Flex

The 13-inch Flex comes in a 1.15-kg package with the latest 10th-generation Intel Core chips (Ice Lake), integrated graphics, up to 16GB LPDDR4X RAM and up to 1TB PCIe NVMe -SSD delivered.

For additional security, the device has a fingerprint reader.

The name derives from the 360-degree rotating screen, which is also a touch screen and is compatible with S-Pen. The connectivity is also not overlooked: 2 Thunderbolt 3 ports and microSD card slot.

Inside there is a generous 69.7 Wh battery.

Galaxy Book Ion

As we mentioned before, the Ion series is also available in two versions: 13 “and 15”. The 13-inch weighs 30 g less than a kilogram, while the 15-inch version can go up to 1.26 kg with a discrete GPU.

The 10th-generation Intel Comet Lake chips will drive, while the 15-inch model will be equipped with a GPU Nvidia GeForce MX250 with 2GB of GDDR5 memory.

Memory configurations can be up to 16 GB DDR4 and up to 1 TB PCIe NVMe SSD in both cases. However, the 15-inch does not have an additional free SODIMM slot for another 16 GB RAM chip and an additional SSD slot.

The same 69.7 Wh battery turns off lights for both iteration and connectivity. The ion beats the Flex with an additional HDMI port.

No pricing information is available at this time, but sales are expected to begin in December.

Google Pixel 4, Pixel four XL Customers Complain of Clicking Noise in Snap chat, Instagram Video clips



The Google Pixel series is famous for all the problems it faces right after its launch. The Pixel 4 series does not look different, as some users of Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL have begun to report a problem with clicks or cracks in recorded videos through third-party applications such as Snapchat and Instagram.

However, it is important to keep in mind that videos recorded in the normal “video” mode of the standard camera application are not affected.

The problem only occurs with third-party applications, as well as in the augmented Playground-AR mode of the Google Camera application.

On the Google Pixel Phone Help website, several users claim that there is a clicking noise every half second to a second in the videos in question, and one user compares the sound with that of a metronome.

Although an expert on Google product forums has aggravated the problem, he blamed the problem on third-party applications.

Fortunately, he wrote that this could be a software problem and could easily be solved with a software update. The expert also invited interested people to submit their comments.

Users can contact the Google Pixel team directly by selecting the Settings menu, clicking on About phone and selecting “Send comments on this device.” So, for now, Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL users should expect a software update.

In addition to solving the noise problem in the videos, the update should also correct the problem of adjusting the white balance in the camera application, as previously reported by some social media users.

If a product or expert service on the Google solution discussion boards took up the challenge, it blamed the dilemma on third-party apps.

Fortunately, he wrote that this could be a software problem and could easily be fixed with a software update. The expert’s publication also invited those concerned to send suggestions.

Users can contact the Google Pixel team directly by selecting the Settings menu, clicking About mobile phone and selecting “Send feedback on this device”. So, for the moment, buyers of Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL should wait for a software update.

In addition to solving the problem of noise in the videos, the update should also correct the situation of adjustment of the white harmony in the application of the digital camera, as previously indicated by some end users of social networks.
