Google has released the new beta version of Android 13 QPR3 as beta 3.2. The update is now available for compatible Pixel devices. It is also worth noticing that the update is only available for those users who have already enrolled in the Android beta program.

The Android 13 QPR3 beta 3.2 update is available on Pixel devices starting from Pixel 4a to the latest Pixel smartphones. The latest software update comes with version number T3B3.230413.00. It is based on the May 2023 security patch. The installed file size of the software is 22.06 for Google Pixel 7 Pro.

On the other hand, the same update will be available for Verizon-affiliated Pixel 6, Pixel 6 Pro, and Pixel 6a with different version numbers T3B3.230413.009.A1. It is still using a one-month-older patch as April 2023 security patch. 

The Android 13 QPR3 beta 3.2 update brings several new improvements for the devices by fixing several issues, such as synchronization issues with the system UI and issues related to IMS over Wi-Fi have also been fixed. Apart from this, the proper SIM detection and issues with connectivity speeds are also addressed.

If you own any compatible Pixel device that is already running on Android 13 QPR beta, you will automatically get the latest software rollout through OTA. This update also includes the latest improvements for stability and performance. 

Android 13 QPR3 Beta 3.2 – official changelog

  • Fixed an input synchronization issue with the system UI that caused Windows to stop receiving touch input or to receive touch input in the wrong location. (Issue #279560321)
  • Fixed an issue that could cause calls over Wi-Fi to disconnect unexpectedly.
  • Fixed an issue that could prevent a SIM card from being detected properly or from being activated during phone setup.
  • Fixed an issue where a device could fail to register IMS over Wi-Fi when leaving LTE coverage and entering Wi-Fi coverage.
  • Fixed issues that caused unexpected dips in cellular connectivity speeds or reliability.

Google Pixel Phones Say Goodbye to Samsung SoCs

Google is the parent company of the Android operating system, and it has introduced several improvements and changes on the software side, which are truly appreciable, but if we look at the hardware side, the company hasn’t done any innovation for it. 

To manufacture its homemade Pixel lineup, the company has relied on different partners. Samsung was the crucial partner, which provides the chips for Google devices, but now, according to the information, the company is planning to join hands with its alternative, TSMC.

Google Pixel 10 is equipped with a 3nm processor

Before saying complete goodbye, Google will use the final Samsung-made chip for the upcoming Pixel 9 series, but then for the next Pixel series, i.e., the Pixel 10 series, the company will move to the TSMC’s fabricated processor. 

According to the information retrieved from the Chinese publication CTEE, Google will use the first 3nm chip with Tensor G5 made from the TSMC. It is always worth noticing that the G5 is Google’s first chip designed completely in-house. While earlier, the SoC was made with a designed LSI arm.

Now it’s time for Samsung to take some tough steps as its chip assembly is continuously losing big partners; however, there is no proper reason disclosed why Google is moving away from Samsung. It is worth noticing that TSMC is considered a highly efficient manufacturing chip, therefore it is able to provide quality products with consistency.

Apple’s Vision Headset May Feature Tech from Sony, Samsung, and LG

Published

Apple is looking forward to raising production of its new merged reality device, the Vision Pro, by reaching out to Samsung and LG. Apple has requested information on OLED+CF technology, a key component for the device’s display. 

The new report suggests that Apple is focusing on securing a trustworthy supply chain for OLED displays. Japan’s Sony has supplied Oledos for Vision Pro; however, it is not resulting in increased production capacity. There is unsureness in the outlook of China regarding technology and geopolitics.

It has yet to be clear if the two domestic panel firms will actively respond to Apple’s request or not. If the report is to be believed, Apple was found to have recently sent a request for information (RFI) related to the development of OLEDoS (OLED on Silicon) to Samsung Display and LG Display. 

The term RFI here stands for a document exchanged at a stage before the Request for Quotation (RFQ) sent by the set manufacturer to the parts manufacturer once the product specifications have been decided. It is mentioned in the RFI as a product that applies a color filter (CF) to a white (W) organic light-emitting diode (OLED). 

WOLED+CF OLEDOS indicates color as white light from WOLED passes through red (R), green (G), and blue (B) color filters. Vision Pro, initially released in the United States, also used WOLED+CF OLEDOS. The additional product specs include a display size of 2.0 to 2.1 inches with a 1700 PPI pixel density.

However, the reason why Apple is sending an RFI has yet to be analyzed. The two main possibilities behind this appear: for instance, maybe Apple is setting up to introduce a more affordable version of the Vision Pro, reducing the price even for the base model. Another possibility is that RFI could also be moved to secure a stable supply of Oledos panels, which are a main component in the Vision Pro’s display. 

Sony, Apple’s current Oledos partner, has top-notch production capacity (900,000 units per year). Apple sends inquiries to Samsung and LG regarding this OLED+CF technology. On the other hand, LG is a leader in WOLED+CF development, despite the fact the fact that it currently lacks a production line. Apple needs to diversify Oledo suppliers due to limitations with Sony.

Google Workspace getting Google Vids: Lets you create videos with AI

Google is expanding its ways to offer a new convenience facility as its workspace is getting a new video creation tool called Google Vids. 

Google Workspace is introducing a new video creation tool called Google Vids, or you can call it ‘PowerPoint on steroids.’ Google announced it a few months ago, and it is now announcing a free, public testing phase.

This new facility, named Google Vids, permits you to both work with existing video content and create video from scratch. 

Create videos from scratch with the help of Gemini for particular options, such as the ability to outline a script, and create multiple slides until you find the usable video content. Once the first draft has been prepared, the user can then adapt the output to their satisfaction, customizing or even deleting slides, as well as working on texts, images, and more. 

Once you are done with the work, you can save the format with an MP4 extension. As compared to other more classically designed tools included in Google Workspace, Google Vids appear to be more focused on AI.

While starting a new project in Google Workspace, you can use the Gemini prompt to give instructions to the AI assistant to enhance your experience. The giant has already made this prompt box available. Noticeably, the documents you have already uploaded to Google Drive Gemini can be analyzed. 

All the functionality mentioned above regarding Google Vids is described by one of our colleagues, Android Authority, who also wanted to show a demonstration of Google Vids’ capabilities using the following prompt: “Inform our employees about the latest discoveries on the benefits of video games. Highlight how video games can improve cognitive function, problem-solving skills, and social interaction.” 

However, at the moment Google Vids is running in a very early testing phase, so it might be possible you can face some roughness.
