Samsung Galaxy S21: an earlier release to hurt Huawei
Contrary to the habits taken in recent years, Samsung should not wait until the end of February or March to present its future Galaxy S21s, as Reuters indicates that the three smartphones planned for the beginning of next year, the Galaxy S21 , S21 + and S21 Ultra would be launched in the first month of 2021, in January. A way for the Korean firm to catch one of its main competitors, the Chinese Huawei, by surprise.
e-Vino: Yamaha launches inexpensive electric scooter only dedicated to the city
Yamaha presented a new electric scooter designed specifically for urban use. The new e-Vino from the Japanese manufacturer offers only 29 kilometers of autonomy for a 580 W motor allowing to go up to 44 km / h. However, what the manufacturer lacks in performance, it catches up with its price. Launched for the moment only in Japan, the Yamaha e-Vino is marketed there at the equivalent of 2112 euros.
OnePlus Watch: the watch would not run on Wear OS
We have known for some time that OnePlus is working on its first connected watch. The firm even confirmed the information at its last conference. However, contrary to what one might think, the OnePlus Watch should not be equipped with WearOS, the connected watch system from Google, but a home system. The information, which comes to us from the German leaker Max Jambor, would mark a new disavowal for the Google OS while many of its partners, Samsung and Huawei in the lead, have already thrown in the towel due to the lack of autonomy and fluidity of the system.
