I experimented the Foldable Mate X, and Samsung’s scandal and why some are disappointed. And of course, the eSIM! Watch this episode to know more! Peace be upon you all. This is your host, Faisal Alsaif with a new episode of Science and Technology. Let’s start it with the big announcement by Apple of their “It’s Showtime” event in 25th of March. Invitations have be been, and this event will take place in Steve Jobs theatre. It is expected that they will announce new devices and their new audio broadcasting service There also could be a video content platform, competing with Netflix. We are also expecting that they will release new AirPods and other accessories. We are hoping the AirPower will finally be released. ANd WiFi calling and VoLTE have been enabled for Samsung Galaxy S series. Galaxy S10, S9 have already got the service, S8 and Note 8 and 9 will soon get it. It is just an over the air update, once installed, everything will be ok. If your carrier supports WiFi calling and VoLTE, you will be ok. WiFi calling is available with Zain and VoLTE is available with Zain and STC. Enable this service and enjoy it. Let’s talk about the eSIM. There were rumors that it will activated in 10th of March 2019. The service wasn’t enabled in Sunday, and I am waiting for the official statement. If a service is connected to privacy and security and also connected to other authorities, then authorities must first confirm it. I prefer not have my own saying, as I know new services are coming but first, they must be checked. We’ve been through this before with Facetime and Apple Pay. These new technologies must be revised before enabling them. THey must be checked for privacy and security, organizing and many other aspects. Let’s wait for the eSIM to be activated. The day this service is enabled, we will make a thorough content about it Let’s discuss Science news. The new upcoming Flu wave coming to USA is also expected to arrive to the rest of the world. H1N1 virus and H3M2 virus and many other viruses are being widely spread in USA year in particular, unlike past years. There are risks, but people could take some precaution steps. Have a good food and heating systems and other precaution steps. It is not only about science, but also about advices for good health Always have a honey spoon in the morning. Next news! Let’s keep in the science news. There is a huge development in building 7 macorn robots. These robots can’t be seen by the naked eye. These robots will be used in the future to be injected in your body. They are tiny robots that could swim in your body and fix problems inside you and provide readings using electromagnetic waves to send and receive information. This is just the start. There are bigger things expected. Remember Sci-Fi movies where a human could drive a machine IN your body? I am not sure if we will reach to this point, but always remember, “Mankind have not been given of knowledge except a little.” There are tiny robots now that could fix problems in your body, what will happen in the upcoming 20 years? There could no reason to make a surgery to remove a tumor. There could be tiny robots in your body through blood where they can remove this tumor. It would be a crazy idea. Let’s wait for the future. Let’s discuss something really strange in USA. Philadelphia is the first state to prohibit only digital currency. Some communities are cashless and use virtual wallets like our community in KSA. People here depend on Mada Pay, Apple Pay other services like STC Pay. You could pay and receive using the e-wallet. Philadelphia is the first state to prevent stores from cashless transactions. They think it is racist against people who has no bank accounts or e-wallets. I discussed this topic with few people, and one of them gave me a very great idea. Some people might think that it is backward not to prohibit onl cashless transactions. But also hear this idea from this guy I spoke with: he said if you only want to reach a point where only you can make cashless transactions you need have lots of things before conduct this transaction. If you have 10 SR, you can buy things for 10 SR. Same thing for 5 USD! But for cashless transactions, you need internet to set up your account, back account And you need a smartphone, where you might pay monthly fees. You have have all of these before reaching a cashless society. He is right. Why would I force people to use these where they also pay monthly subscription for these services? It is a valid view point. What do you think, would you like it only cashless or you prefer to have all paying methods like in KSA? By the way, I made a video about Apple Pay and Mada Pay. I explained all details about them and how Apple make money out of this service! You should watching even if you don’t reside in KSA. The video has great information. This service will be applied in most countries, especially Arab countries. Don’t miss the video. Link to it in the VD. Or press on the annotation on this video. You will go directly to the video. Anyway, next news. In a strange move, Huawei sues the US government. All of those in the picture look happy except for one, who he might be having business in USA. Huawei says US government prevents their citizens from our services, which contradicts the constitutions laws of USA. Huawei demands their products and services to be available in the US market It is very important and very interesting topic. Few episodes ago, we talked about why US decided to prevent Huawei services from being available in the US market. If the court sides with Huawei letting their services to be available in the US market, USA won’t be able to take measure to enhance their economy. US laws will negatively impact the economy. It is strange, isn’t it? Let’s change our mood by speaking about the PS4. They support Remote Play now. It will be available on iOS and Android. You can use the app to enjoy your games remotely. Sony took this step because Xbox and Google are developing their own remote platforms using their own technologies to be available in markets. This reminds me of the photo leaked of the Google controller, which might be released in their developer event. I attended the last event, but I haven’t received one for this upcoming event. In the developer event, many technologies are released, one of which could be the gaming platform. Let’s see what can Google make! Google are huge in games in their Google Play store. If they make such a services, how will it be available for people? Google is different than others as they own the Android OS. Unlike PS and Xbox, where they have to upload apps to the Android and iOS stores. Let’s wait and see. It is interesting. Let me talk about smartphones and Mate X in particular. Actually, I am the first one in KSA who experimented the Mate X from Huawei. The experiment was really great! It is a different principle in phones, especially that the screen folds. You have to get some used to with the screens, photo taking, unfolding the device. It is really interesting. But look at this shot!! “When you make this, you feel like you are enjoying yourself” “But when the device is broken, admit that it was you who broke it” “I could do this until the end of the video. I can make the video 4 hours long” Releasing the screen from the device itself was so satisfying. You can watch the full video on all of our accounts in all platforms. A link to this video is in the VD. Let’s discuss what some people called a scandal in the S10 where you can unlock the device with a video. Dear users, if you enable this feature on the S10, S10e and S10+, the device will tell you that this feature is not highly secured. It is strange the amount of content created about this in KSA and around the world. For me, I prefer that Samsung didn’t release this feature. Samsung’s competitor is iPhone’s Face ID. It is not logical to implement a feature that is not secure. I wished Samsung didn’t implement this feature. What’s happened is happened. Depth sensors make this feature more secure. But before enabling this feature, the device lets you know that your device can open with a photo. It is not only samsung; all Android devices with a front facing camera have the same problem. And before you set up this feature, you will get the same notification. This is what happens with giant manufacturers when they implement a feature that isn’t well thought. Let’s go back to the Mate X. When you unfold the screen, there will be marks on it, but it is a prototype. Some technicians said these marks are a flaw. How can you judge a prototype? The final version will be released in 6 months. Everyone has their own opinions, though. You have the final judgement. Honesty and integrity of our final judgment will be yours. Let’s go to the next news. It is also related to Samsung. Sales of these devices are really great. Most sold phones are the Plus and e versions. Samsung says the S10 has also solid sales, but it not as the Plus and e versions. The Plus version screen is really nice and there are many wallpapers for it. Lots of designers are trying to make new designs for the S10+, S10 and S10e wallpapers. Some of these designs are displayed in front of you. They are cool. Creativity is a way for innovation. The OnePlus 7 is going to have great specs. This device is supposed to have the new Snapdragon CPU. It will also have a huge charging capacity. We are very excited for this black horse device. They are also competitive. OnePlus 6 and 6T were great devices. Poco Phone was also a great device. Neither of these devices are available in KSA, but this year, it might be different. OnePlus 7 might not be officially available, but the Poco Phone will be available as Xiaomi are now officially available in KSA. Let’s move to Motorola news. They are going to make a Startek foldable phone. Do you remember these devices? Motorola will release a foldable phone but with the Startek design. It is a clam shell design. Once you open the device, the screen will unfold. When folded, the device will be smaller in size. The device will be called Voyager. It is going to be the winning card for Motorola. Lenovo owns Motorola. Let’s wait for its announcement. It would be a great thing as it would remind us of the past. Nokia has done the same thing as they reinvented their old devices again. Let’s discuss our last news from Apple. Apple could unveil a new smart glasses this year. This glasses will ship with lots of technologies and AR if the leaks are true. You can use this glasses with AR, but it won’t be a phone replacement, but it will add to your services with the added wearable technologies. This is the end of this episode.
