Honor Smartphones Will Soon Return Google Services
Separating from parent Huawei, which has come under US sanctions, will benefit Honor.

According to recent reports, new Honor smartphones will receive Google services. But on Honor smartphones released earlier, the Huawei AppGallery app store will still remain.

There is speculation that the return of Google services to the Honor line will take place this spring.

Experts say that due to the fact that some of the owners of Honor smartphones will not have access to Huawei AppGallery app store, following the replacement of the AppGallery with Google services, Huawei will suffer losses.

It's important to note that Honor and Huawei split off in fall 2020.

Apple is planning the first redesign version of its iMac all-in-one PC since 2012, part of a shift away from Intel Corp. processors to its own silicon, based on individuals familiar with the plans.

The brand new models will slim down the thick black borders across the display screen and get rid of the sizable metal chin area in favor of a design just like Apple’s Pro Display XDR monitor.

These iMacs will have a flat back, shifting away from the curved rear of the present iMac. The corporate is planning to launch two variations: codenamed J456 and J457; to change the existing 21.5-inch and 27-inch models later in this year, the folks said, asking to not be identified because the products are usually not yet announced.

The upcoming items are a part of Apple’s radical overhaul of its PC lineup. The Cupertino, California-based firm is switching from Intel processors that have powered generations of iMacs and MacBooks to its own, Arm-based processors, which it has branded Apple Silicon. An Apple spokeswoman declined to comment.

The new variants will use next-gen versions of Apple-owned Mac processors like the upcoming 2021 MacBook Pros. The iMac redesign might be one of the largest visual updates to any Apple item this year, based on folks familiar with the corporate’s roadmap.

Apple is also continuously working on a pair of the latest Mac Pro PCs, its priciest Mac machines that don’t include a display screen, the people stated.

One version is a direct update to the present Mac Pro and can continue to use the identical design as the version launched in 2019. Apple has mentioned persevering with to use Intel processors for that model rather than shifting to its own chips.

The second version, however, will use Apple-owned processors and be lower than half the size of the present Mac Pro. The design will contain a mostly aluminum exterior and will invoke nostalgia for the Power Mac G4 Cube, a short-lived smaller model of the Power Mac, an earlier iteration of the Mac Pro.

Recently, it was reported that Apple started developing a foldable screen smartphone.

According to Bloomberg, the workflow remains at the stage of creating displays, and Apple does not yet have a prototype of a folding iPhone.

The company has not decided on the size of the folding screen. "We are considering, in particular, a variant of the display with a diagonal of 6.7 inches (about 17 cm), like the iPhone 12 Pro Max," reveals the company.

Most of the screens Apple tests have an invisible folding hinge, which means the screen becomes solid when you open the phone.

Samsung's foldable smartphones, for example, are designed in the same way - unlike Microsoft's counterparts, in which visible hinges connect two separate panels.

As noted by Bloomberg, the folding iPhone is likely to appear not soon, or may not appear at all. Apple is now focused on the upcoming release of its new flagship iPhone and iPad later this year.

The coronavirus pandemic has made product development challenging as the company's engineers work in Silicon Valley offices only a few days a week and in limited numbers.

On Thursday 14 January, Google announced that its acquisition of Fitbit is finally complete in a statement on its blog.

The announcement was made by Osterloh emphasizes, that the acquisition of the wearables firm “has always been in regards to the devices, not data” in an effort to make clear Google’s intentions with the acquisition of Fitbit.

Google seems to be forward to using the talents of the Fitbit team to ultimately develop Google's own wearable gadgets, much like how Google’s acquisition of Nest enabled the corporate to refine its ecosystem of smart home products.

Google has officially made commitments promising that Fitbit customers’ health and fitness data won't be used for the aim of concentrating on advertisements, and people commitments have been brought up within the release.

As well, Google reminds that Fitbit users will continue to have the choice of protecting fitness data on a Fitbit account whether or not they wish to share it with 3rd parties (like Google Fit) or not.

Google intends to keep its Android APIs open for all tech developers that want to keep making health and fitness trackers working with Android OS to keep the competition in the wearable space alive.

Regardless of Google’s announcement on Friday, the US Department of Justice has provided the following assertion to some outlets relating to the very same acquisition, which is apparently still present process some Antitrust Division investigations.

"The Antitrust Division’s investigation of Google’s acquisition of Fitbit remains ongoing. Though the Division has not reached a closing decision about whether to pursue an enforcement action, the Division continues to investigate whether Google’s acquisition of Fitbit may hurt competition and consumers in the US. The Division remains committed to conducting this review as thoroughly, efficiently, and expeditiously as possible."

Google, however, states that it was comfy moving forward with the announcement regardless of the DOJ’s lack of a formed decision.

It cited period of investigation is much previous a provisional period without an objection. This is Google’s assertion according to the Android Authority:

"We complied with the DOJ’s extensive review for the past 14 months, and the agreed-upon waiting period expired without their objection. We continue to be in touch with them and we’re committed to answering any additional questions. We're assured this deal will enhance competition in the highly crowded wearables market and we’ve made commitments that we plan to implement globally."
