LG lets you be in control with new ACP 5

Global technology leader LG Electronics gives you more control as it rolled out another game-changing innovation—the newest central controller, the ACP 5.
The fifth-generation solution incorporates a number of upgrades that respond directly to users’ feedback. With LG’s innovative technologies onboard, the model boasts an exceptionally smart management system, expanded capabilities and features designed to increase operational efficiency.
“LG is a company committed to utilize technology in making innovative solutions to address the ever-evolving consumer needs. With unparalleled features enabling sophisticated control and greater compatibility, the ACP 5 delivers the convenience and control our customers demand.”
The ACP 5 also has a user-friendly interface with easy to monitor energy consumption information.
Smarter than ever
A crucial component of the ACP 5 is its intuitive and smarter control setup. Rather than having to be on-site to operate the system, users can control it remotely from a PC, tablet or smartphone. Compatible with HTML5, the user interface (UI) is optimized for a range of devices.
Users can monitor and control a variety of functions via the intuitive UI. At a glance, they can check operating status, energy usage trends and environmental conditions. As users can visually identify a unit that is working sub-optimally, they can easily adjust energy consumption to minimize inefficiency and lower running costs.
To expand the range of available control options from previous models, LG has enhanced the interlock function on the ACP 5. This allows for far more than the automated execution of basic tasks, such as turning the power on and off. The ACP 5 can handle multiple complex tasks, conducting them in a designated sequence.
For instance, the user can set up pre-determined actions for specific occurrences, such as ceasing operation if an alarm indicating refrigerant leakage sounds continuously for three minutes. In addition, the user can control the settings to delay each output by up to 60 minutes.
More efficient energy management
Thanks to the ACP 5’s smart energy navigation function, users can effortlessly adjust energy consumption to reduce costs and save power.
By analyzing past usage, the solution can help predict energy demand. In addition, accurate simulation software helps to prevent the system from exceeding consumption targets in the future.

Xiaomi set its sights on a 5G solution as early as in May 2016 by establishing a team to deep dive on 5G standards and to start exploratory research. As a major participant of 5G trials organized by China Mobile, Xiaomi successfully tested n78 signal connection in September 2018, and completed mmWave (millimeter wave) signal test one month later. By that time, only a handful of smartphone manufacturers in the world had successfully conducted such testings.

With a mission to innovate, Xiaomi first developed numerous strategic 5G partnerships with key service providers across the globe, such as 3, Sunrise, TIM, Vodafone and many more. The next step was to make 5G devices available to consumers, and to achieve that Xiaomi had been working tirelessly with some of these carriers since the early stages of Mi MIX 3 5G development. With the official announcement of Mi MIX 3 5G, Xiaomi is now one of the first smartphone manufacturers to produce a 5G phone for commercial use. At the launch event, Xiaomi demonstrated the readiness of Mi MIX 3 5G with a live demo, made possible using the 5G network provided by Orange Spain. 

“Xiaomi has spent tremendous efforts developing a 5G smartphone solution and Mi MIX 3 5G represents Xiaomi’s quest to create innovative products for everyone,” said Wang Xiang, Senior Vice President of Xiaomi. “We are also delighted and honored to be working with our partners to make 5G a reality for even more users all over the world.”

Inside Mi MIX 3 is the newly crowned Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform, built using the latest 7nm process. The Qualcomm Kryo 485 CPU incorporates eight cores for a great balance between performance and power efficiency. Single core performance is up to 45% faster, a great leap from the previous generation. The Qualcomm Adreno™ 640 GPU see increased performance by 20% compared to the previous generation, and the fourth-generation Qualcomm AI Engine provides up to three times faster AI performance. 

“We are thrilled to continue our long-standing collaboration with Xiaomi to help bring deliver unprecedented 5G speeds and transformative user experiences to consumers through their latest flagship smartphone, Mi MIX 3 5G,” said Cristiano Amon, President, Qualcomm Incorporated. “Powering the new Mi MIX 3 5G and Mi 9, the Snapdragon 855 Mobile Platform features the 4th generation Qualcomm AI Engine to make your phone the ultimate personal assistant, the world’s first announced Qualcomm Spectra Computer Vision ISP to capture cinema-grade photography, and Snapdragon elite gaming to transform your premium smartphone into a powerful gaming machine.”

To support applications requiring high-levels of device performance during extended periods of time, such as advanced multi-player gaming, Xiaomi has also developed a highly-advanced hybrid cooling system for Mi MIX 3 5G. The Rogers® HeatSORB™ thermal material implements a phase change effect that quickly captures heat generated by the device under demanding scenarios and delays temperature increases. Then, a passive heat pipe composed of six layers of graphite disperses heat at a speed three times faster than a typical dual graphite sheet. 

World-class photography

Make way for Samsung’s first of its kind foldable smartphone the ‘Galaxy Fold’

by E. Lorete / http://www.inslashout,wordpress.com / http://www.inslashout.blog.com

News about foldable screens have been mounting since early 2018. While a handful Chinese brands have forwarded prototypes of sought after smartphone feature, gadget brand Samsung did theirs with a smacking make that is making everyone think more what Galaxy Fold is all about. Let us take a look at the fine features of the foldable Samsung device the Galaxy Fold. 

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. unveiled the highly anticipated Galaxy Fold, a new foldable device creating a new mobile category. Galaxy Fold features the world’s first 7.3-inch Infinity Flex Display, which folds into a compact device with a cover display. Galaxy Fold offers a powerful new way to multitask, watch videos, play games, and more – bringing to life new experiences and possibilities years in the making. 

“Today, Samsung is writing the next chapter in mobile innovation history by changing what’s possible in a smartphone. Galaxy Fold introduces a completely new category that unlocks new capabilities never seen before with our Infinity Flex Display.” said DJ Koh, President and CEO of IT & Mobile Communications Division, Samsung Electronics. “We created Galaxy Fold for those that want to experience what a premium foldable device can do, beyond the limitations of a traditional smartphone.” 
A Smartphone. A Tablet. Folded into One. 

Galaxy Fold is in a category of its own. It delivers a new kind of mobile experience allowing users to do things they couldn’t do with an ordinary smartphone. Users now have the best of both worlds; a compact device that unfolds to reveal Samsung’s largest-ever smartphone display. Galaxy Fold brings together material, engineering and display innovations, developed over eight years following the debut of Samsung’s first flexible display prototype in 2011. 

New Display Materials: The internal screen does not merely bend. It folds. Folding is a more intuitive motion, and a more difficult innovation to deliver. Samsung invented a new polymer layer and created a display around 50 percent thinner than the typical smartphone display. The new material makes Galaxy Fold flexible and tough, built to last. 

New Hinging Mechanism: Galaxy Fold opens smoothly and naturally, like a book, and closes flat and compact with a satisfying click. To achieve this, Samsung engineered a sophisticated hinge with multiple interlocking gears. This system is housed in a hidden enclosure for a seamless and elegant look. 

New Design Elements: From the screen to the housing, to every element you can see and touch – Samsung left no stone unturned. The fingerprint scanner is found on the side where the thumb naturally rests, so the device unlocks easily. Two batteries and the components are evenly distributed so Galaxy Fold feels balanced in your hands. Colors with unique finishing—Space Silver, Cosmos Black, Martian Green and Astro Blue—and the engraved hinge with Samsung logo complete its elegant fit and finish.  

A Whole New Experience 

Galaxy Fold was designed with smartphone users in mind – driven by bigger and better form factors that boost their experiences. Galaxy Fold changes to the screen you need, the moment you need it. Slip it out of your pocket for one-handed calls, texts, and more and open for endless multitasking and higher quality viewing on our largest mobile display for presentations, digital magazines, movies, and AR content. 
The unique UX built just for Galaxy Fold, provides new ways to get the most out of your smartphone: 

Multi-Active Window: The possibilities are virtually endless with Galaxy Fold – designed for the ultimate multitasker. You can open up to three active apps simultaneously on the main display so you can surf, text, work, watch and share without losing a beat.   

App Continuity: Make intuitive, seamless transitions between the cover and the main displays. As Galaxy Fold opens and closes, apps will automatically show up where you leave off. When you’re ready to take a photo, make in-depth edits, or have a closer look at the feed, open the display for a big screen and fuller canvas. 
Samsung worked with Google and the Android developer community to ensure that apps and services were available for the Galaxy Fold’s unique experience.
Premium Performance Built to Fold 

Galaxy Fold is built for the heaviest and intense use whether it’s working, playing or sharing —all of which requires advanced performance. Packed with powerful hardware, the Galaxy Fold is more than up to the task. 

Do More: To ensure everything runs smoothly, even when running three apps simultaneously, Samsung equipped Galaxy Fold with a high-powered, next-generation AP chipset and 12GB of RAM with PC-like performance. The sophisticated dual battery system was specifically engineered to keep up with you. Galaxy Fold is also capable of charging itself and a second device simultaneously via Wireless PowerShare, while connected to a regular charger so you can leave your second charger at home. 

Ultimate Multimedia Experience: The Galaxy Fold is designed for entertainment. Thanks to immersive visuals on the Dynamic AMOLED display a
