Google presenterà ad Ottobre Pixel 2 e XL
L’evento di presentazione di Google dove presenterà i suoi device e servizi si terra logicamente a Mountain View in California. La data è stata confermata grazie al video pubblicato da Google il 14 Settembre questo video, era stato anticipato poche ore prima sui social dove veniva mostrata una foto con il logo dell’azienda e con scritto “Ask more of your phone” e infine la data della presentazione.
L’evento di presentazione di Google lo potremo seguire il 4 Ottobre alle ore 18:00 in Italia.
Il 4 Ottobre finalmente conosceremo i nuovi Pixel di cui ormai sono disponibili le schede tecniche da settimane, si presume anche l’annuncio di un nuovo Chromecast, si dovrebbe trattare del anche se Google grazie al Chromecast Ultra non dovrebbe aver bisogno di presentarne un altro. Ultimamente si sta parlando anche di visori VR by Google grazie anche alla collaborazione con dei partner oltre all’annuncio dello speaker Google Home con l’inedito assistente vocale Google Assistant.
Altra novità bomba da parte di Google è lo sbarco di contenuti 4K HDR nel Play Store visto anche che in Italia Apple ha annunciato la sua TV 4K sarà altamente probabile l’annuncio di questa novità o addirittura la data di ufficializzazione.
Vi lasciamo al video dove Google ufficializza la presentazione dei suoi nuovi device per Ottobre e inoltre Google ha già reso disponibile il link per seguire in diretta LIVE l’evento il 4 Ottobre:
Apple’s set-top box hasn’t seen many changes of late, which makes the new Apple TV 4K all the more welcome for video buffs. The new device now supports two key video technologies: 4K and HDR. 4K video provides about four times as many pixels as are in 1080p video, and HDR (High Dynamic Range) supports more colors. The result is video that looks fabulous, with more detail, deeper colors, and better contrast than ever before.
To see those changes, you need a 4K TV that supports either the Dolby Vision or HDR10 standard—in other words, unless you’ve bought a TV in the last year or two, you’ll probably need a new one. Check the specs carefully!
The third part of the equation? 4K HDR content. Apple is working with major movie studios to bring 4K HDR video content to iTunes at the same price as HD movies. You’ll get an automatic upgrade to 4K HDR versions of iTunes HD movies you’ve purchased, when they become available. Netflix 4K HDR streaming is expected immediately, and Amazon Prime Video should offer 4K HDR video on the Apple TV later this year.
Dealing with all the 4K HDR video requires beefier hardware. The A10 Fusion chip doubles overall performance and quadruples the graphics processing speed over the fourth-generation Apple TV. The Apple TV 4K also sports faster and more modern networking connections: Gigabit Ethernet, simultaneous dual-band 802.11ac Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 5.0.
A 32 GB model of the Apple TV 4K costs $179, and a 64 GB model is $199 (we advise you to stick with the smaller model unless you play large Apple TV games). You can pre-order it on September 15, and it will be generally available a week later. The fourth-generation Apple TV remains on sale for $149. Although Apple said nothing about when tvOS 11 would be available, it seems likely to ship with iOS 11 and watchOS 4 on September 19th.
