Here are the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro

Today, Apple has unveiled a new set of phones, including the iPhone 11, the iPhone 11 Pro and the iPhone 11 Pro Max. These new devices are powered by a new chip, sport new cameras and are available in a variety of finishes and sizes.

So without any further ado, let’s get into some of the details.

iPhone 11

Design

The iPhone 11 sports an anodized aluminum and glass design, which Apple claims is the toughest ever smartphone glass. Surprisingly, it comes in a handful of colors: white, green, yellow, purple, black and red. This next-gen iPhone also has a 6.1-inch liquid Retina display, with the expected tap-to-wake functionality and haptic feedback.

Camera

Apple clearly put a lot of energy into the iPhone 11 camera, which has a dual-camera set up: one 12mp wide lens, 26mm f/1.8 and an ultra-wide 12mp f/2.4 sensor. The wide-angle dual-camera set up actually lets users snap a pic and zoom out to see what’s beyond the frame, which should be helpful for those expansive landscape shots.

On the software side, Apple has introduced a new image pipeline that does over a trillion operations for every photo. The company has added “semantic rendering,” which adjusts the lighting on photos retroactively based on the subjects. This helps isolate and enhance facial features so tone mapping can be applied more accurately in portraits. Plus, portrait mode effects can now be applied to subjects other than humans, like pets.

In addition, iPhone 11 features a new Night Mode to compete with the likes of Samsung and Google, which uses image fusion and adaptive bracketing — shorter and longer exposures — melded together to reduce motion and blur to make for better low-light images.

Video

On the video end, iPhone 11 shoots 4K video at 60fps, complete with slo-mo, time-lapse, cinematic video stabilization and extended dynamic range up to 4K across both cameras. The UI for video has some slight changes, including a new Instagram-style tap-and-hold to record video.

On the front-facing camera, Apple decided to go big with a wider-angle sensor and the ability to capture 4K video at 30/60fps and the ability to shoot slo-mo.

Specs

As is usual with a new generation of iPhone, the iPhone 11 is powered by a brand new processor, the A13 Bionic chip. Apple says it’s the fastest GPU and CPU ever in a smartphone. Where battery life is concerned, Apple declined to share the actual mAh but did say that it has one hour longer battery life than the iPhone XR.

Pricing and availability

The iPhone 11 will start at RM3,399 and will be available in Malaysia on Friday, September 27. More information is available on the Apple Malaysia website.

iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max

Design

The 11 Pro and Pro Max sport a three-camera system and a design featuring surgical-grade stainless steel with a single sheet of matte glass on the back. It comes in midnight green, space gray, silver/white and gold.

Display

The Pro comes with a 5.8-inch display, while the Pro Max comes with a 6.5-inch display. And speaking of displays, the Pro and Pro Max have a Super Retina display with a new OLED panel with 2M:1 contrast, 1200 nits and True Tone technology. They’re calling it the Super Retina XDR display.

Specs

Alongside the iPhone 11, the Pro and Pro Max will run on the A13 Bionic chip.

Battery life on the iPhone 11 Pro lasts four hours longer than the iPhone XS, while the 11 Pro Max offers five hours more than the iPhone XS Max. Both phones will get 18W fast-charging capabilities.

Camera

The real show-stopper on the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max is the camera system.

The iPhone Pro has three, 12-megapixel cameras, covering the standard wide-angle view at 26mm equivalent, a 52mm telephoto lens and a new ultra-wide 13mm lens that gives you a broader view with a 120-degree field of vision.

The camera system also has a new feature called Deep Fusion. Here’s how it works:

Deep Fusion shoots nine images, pre-shooting four long- and four short-exposure images into a buffer. Then when you press the shutter button it takes a longer exposure. The neural engine and image signal processor then combine these on a pixel-by pixel-basis into your image, harnessing the power of the A13 Bionic chip.

Apple says the cameras are paired right at the factory for calibration, color, etc. Other cameras are primed while you shoot video on the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max so you can swap between lenses without fluctuations in exposure, focus or color temperature.

Pricing and availability

The iPhone 11 Pro will start at RM4,899 and will be available in Malaysia on Friday, September 27. More information is available on the Apple Malaysia website.

Five reasons to buy Huawei’s nova 5T

The brand new Huawei nova 5T comes in three striking colours, including midsummer purple or crush blue (pictured), or black.

The nova 5T was just unveiled during the recent Kuala Lumpur Fashion Week (KLFW) 2019 in an exclusive first-in-the-world preview of the new smartphone to resounding success.

Condensing cutting-edge cameras and flagship performance in a sleek, eye-catching form, it is bound to satisfy the cravings of tech enthusiasts and fashionistas alike.

Capture life in motion

Bringing a camera out is a troublesome task, but the dilemma for photography lovers is that normal smartphones are just not built to properly capture the scenic beauty of night shots or magnificent buildings.

With the nova 5T, take the perfect photo every time, be it selfies, portraits, ultra-wide angle shots, night scenery or food photography.

The nova 5T is the best companion for your daily life, capturing every memorable moment on the go with the 48MP main camera.

Pushing the envelope for smartphone photography, Huawei has outdone itself yet again by integrating not one – but five! – artificial intelligence (AI) cameras to the versatile nova 5T to meet your every need.

Huawei’s nova 5T’s five AI cameras redefine the versatility of mobile phone photography.

The smartphone boasts an arsenal of visual technology, featuring a 16MP super wide angle camera, 117° front-of-view at f/2.2 aperture; a 48MP main camera using a Sony 1/2-inch sensor, four-in-one light fusion at f/1.8 aperture; a 2MP depth-assist camera at f/2.4 aperture; and a 2MP macro camera at f/2.4 aperture.

Mobile devices usually struggle to cover versatile scenarios due to the lack of interchangeable lenses, but suffer no more with the new nova 5T.

The super wide angle 16MP camera will capture your reality.

The 48MP main camera is excellent for superb night photography, while the 16MP super wide angle camera is your best friend for taking photos of your whole surroundings within the frame – just the way you see them in.

Even the small details are in razor sharp focus with Huawei’s 2MP macro camera technology.

Photography fans or amateur photographers will rejoice at the inclusion of the 2MP macro camera, which zooms in closer than ever before on subjects for detail-intense shots in vivid colour. Furthermore, the 2MP depth camera is available to dramatise every shot you take with impressive bokeh effects, a necessity for today’s social media savvy smartphone users.

The 2MP depth camera will redefine your photography world.

One of the most fantastic cameras in the nova 5T is the 32MP selfie camera at f/2.0 aperture and 3D portrait lighting. The four-in-one pixel fusion brings you brighter and clearer selfies optimised by AI. Alongside high definition resolutions, AI scene recognition and optimisation, it is also hard wired with built-in algorithms meant to balance exposure against backlight and enhance beautification.

The nova 5T has an AI algorithm to balance exposure against backlight for stunning portrait photos.

You can take one step closer on your journey to become a trendsetting influencer with the purpose-built selfie camera with backlight and AI beauty functions, which will brighten and beautify your face for that perfect social media selfie.
With the auto-edit AI camera, there’s no longer a need to edit the photos you take to capture all the precious moments in your life. Instead, instantly share them on social media.

Worry no more when taking photos at night, with the Huawei AIS Handheld Super Night Mode.

Tired of taking blurry, low-light photos at night? Achieve crystal clear and crisp photos even in low-light conditions with the nova 5T. Huawei’s new smartphone has got you covered with its AI Image Stabilisation (AIS) Handheld Super Night Mode, so you will never have to be afraid of the darkness – or of taking another dark grainy photo – ever again.

This AI is fitted to stabilise the overall image and helps offset minute shakes when you hold the nova 5T, as well as the laser focus feature and a combination of up to 16 different exposure shots into one to produce a more stable image. Another cool feature is you can create time-lapse sequences in astonishing detail, by going super slow motion with 960fps in 720p.

Other camera features include 3D Qmoji Expressions and Super AI HDR+ that will help refine image details for high quality renderings, to get a professional shot with your nova 5T, every time.

Despite its compact size, it packs a punch with its 6.26in display, featuring a 91.7% screen-to-body ratio and 2,340 x 1,080 resolution. With all these impressive features, the nova 5T still has more to deliver to users with its 22.5W SuperCharge technology powered by a 3750mAH battery, meaning that you can charge your battery up to 50% in just half an hour!

Accessorise with style

It came as no surprise to find the stylish device making its global debut at this year’s KLFW 2019.

For the fashion-conscious, the nova 5T will be a delight to the senses as it comes in three gorgeous gradient colours with a metallic sheen and textured surface, so take your pick between midsummer purple, crush blue or black.

Beyond the design, however, there is also a story behind the nova’s brand new logo design. The four letters that make up nova combine to form a unique monogram. The left half of the logo represents a sitting boy with his hand outstretched in a hugging gesture to convey enthusiasm and vitality, while the right half symbolises a girl sitting with poise to reflect calm confidence and determination.

Encapsulating the nova brand in its entirety, the new logo showcases a dynamic chic icon imbued with top-class innovation, to highlight its youthful, trendy and innovative flavour.

Present the best version of yourself in your OOTD shots with Huawei’s high powered portrait shots with automatic bokeh effects.

Taking amazing OOTD shots is a given with the new smartphone, but Huawei is taking it a step further by making the nova 5T the next fashion accessory.

Designed for visual appeal, fashionistas can make a unique fashion statement by incorporating your own style with the convenience of the side fingerprint sensor lock of nova 5T, as the minimalist logo design and the subtle, ultra small 4.5mm camera cutout is bound to suit any outfit.

Enjoy flagship performance

Who says that flagship performance must be costly? The nova 5T features Kirin 980, Huawei’s latest flagship AI chipset with dual neural processing, also the world’s first 7nm Mobile AI chipset.

Promising an incredible 75% increase in CPU performance, the Kirin 980 boosts camera processing and graphics processing unit by 46%, as well as overall AI performance by 120%.

The dual NPU with two AI chipsets provide users with real AI experience and delivers high performance from its specialisation in accelerating machine learning algorithms – a first on the nova series.

The nova 5T’s chipset with the enhanced EMUI 9.1 brings up the user experience by enabling more than 55% operational improvement in speed and smoothness for on-screen functions and apps access, such as on-the-go entertainment of incoming caller videos and the one tap to share function.

Gamers, take note of the GPU Turbo 3.0 that optimises your gaming experiences with high quality in-game visuals with smoother gameplay – eliminating the lag or dropped frames feared by all gamers – and helps reduce battery consumption at the same time.

As a result, gamers can enjoy an impressive 60 frames-per-second typically boasted by 4K TVs, with Huawei also delivering a pure immersive experience with its virtual 9.1 surround sound. Opt to connect via a Super Bluetooth connection that can be detected over 200m away, with either you earphones or headphones

There’s also the handy dandy “no disturb” mode for those seeking full immersion into the virtual world.

Level up your mobile game

What’s even better is that Huawei is currently offering a Level-Up Programme in conjunction with nova 5T’s sale launch.

Available starting Sept 7 at its stores nationwide, the programme is specially meant for nova users to trade in their nova series smartphones and upgrade to Huawei’s newest kid on the block, the nova 5T.

You can stand to level up your nova series with discounts of up to RM905, but certain terms and conditions apply. Find out more on the Level-Up Programme here.

Furthermore, enjoy a one-year extended warranty for your nova 5T if you purchase the smartphone anytime before Sept 30, so don’t miss your chance to get the two-year warranty!

Using older Adobe CC apps could get you sued, Adobe warns

A few days ago, Adobe discontinued older versions of some Creative Cloud apps. The company is now sending emails to its customers warning them of potential legal actions. That is, if you continue using these apps – you risk getting sued for infringement by third parties.

Matt Roszak shared a copy of the email on Twitter, commenting that it’s time to cancel the subscription:

As I can conclude from the email, Adobe’s records show the users who still use the old apps, and they will get this warning. It reads that “you are no longer licensed to use [the old apps],” adding that, if you keep using them, “you may be at risk of potential claims of infringement by third parties.”

But to make things clear, it’s not Adobe who’s threatening to sue you. They have probably licensed tech from third-party companies in older versions of CC apps. Now, this license has expired, and those third-party companies might go after you if you keep using them. Something similar happened last year when Adobe removed a few versions of Adobe Premiere Pro due to Dolby licensing issues.

Still, I believe this isn’t much of a consolation. If you’re working on an older computer, the lawsuit warning won’t magically make it more powerful so it can support the latest CC apps. Many people still use the old versions precisely because their machines can’t run the newer ones.

Although they were discontinued for download, the older CC apps should continue to run just fine if you have downloaded and installed them earlier, as DIYP pointed out before. However, it seems that using them now carries the possibility of facing legal actions. I guess this warning email should make you think twice whether you’ll still use the old apps or upgrade to new ones. Or just switch to one of the alternatives.
