“Renders show Samsung Galaxy S23 with new camera island”

It will take a while for the Samsung Galaxy S23 series to appear, but renders have already surfaced. The familiar tasty OnLeaks took computer images of the Galaxy S23 and Galaxy S23 Plus. These usually give a good idea of ​​the final design, although there may still be minor errors.

The renders show that Samsung hasn’t changed the design drastically compared to the Galaxy S22 and S22 Plus. The corners of the screen appear to be slightly rounder, but otherwise the differences on the front are very small. The reverse shows a major change.

“Indications: Google may bring Pixel 7 (Pro) to the Netherlands”

Google – October 6

Google previously announced a big event on October 6. There we expect to hear more about the new smartphones, the Pixel Watch, a new Nest Hub and much more brand new hardware. Google Holland is never so generous in responding to the annual Google event, but this year is different.

For example, a tweet appeared on the official Dutch account a few days ago with the announcement poster for the event. The simple question we ask is why Google Netherlands would be aware of an event.

Motorola may soon release a new smartphone in the form of the Moto G72. The device can now be seen on leaked renders. We see both the front and the back of the Motorola Moto G72, so we know it will come in different colors. The screen has a small hole at the top for the selfie camera and a thicker edge at the bottom.

The Moto G72 gets a fingerprint scanner under the screen and is probably (partially) waterproof. On the back sits a triple camera, with a main camera of 108 megapixels. We don’t see this high resolution very often on mid-range phones.

Marked: new Chromecast has less powerful hardware

The new Chromecast with Google TV (HD) is a few tens cheaper than the Chromecast with Google TV (4K) – and logically it has different specifications. For example, the device can stream in full HD quality (1080p) instead of 4K, but the hardware is also less powerful. Before the official reveal, reports surfaced that it would have less RAM and a simpler processor.

Now that we have the Chromecast with Google TV (HD) in our hands, we can check this out. We used AIDA64 for this, a simple app that allows you to view the system information of Android devices. The app is primarily intended for smartphones, but also works on the new Chromecast.

Google Stadia

Google Stadia is a streaming service for games that you play on all kinds of devices via Google’s servers. This way, you don’t need a powerful and expensive computer or console to play. As of January 18, 2023, it’s game over for the service, as the search giant has decided not to continue with it.

In a blog post, Google states that the service did not attract the number of visitors it had hoped for, but exact numbers are not mentioned. Google will refund anyone who purchased hardware and software, provided it was made through the Google Store or the Stadia Store.
