Polytron Technologies unveils first smartphone transparent

A company has a smartphone Taiwainaise original as largely transparent. Polytron Technologies says that this prototype could be mass produced and sold, and by the end of 2013. It is reminiscent of Sony's first attempt with transparent screen  Pureness. 

No, you're not dreaming. Screen, battery, circuitry and a set of components are transparent. You will see the screen and MicroSD card NanoSim. and some circuits incompressible ... at least for the moment!

Presented by Serena Chen, head of Polytron in Taoyuan City (Northern Taiwan) January 21, 2013, this smartphone could be the attraction of the year in terms of design, works on industrial materials and redefine beauty in codes the world of new technologies.

On the downside, the touch part is currently limited to a small area, a first brake in the comfort of use. Even if the battery, the screen and the printed circuit products are totally transparent, three components are not yet available or can not be produced in the immediate processors, SIM card and memory card.

Anyway, the technology allows for an attractive design and designers will research centers and development formats offer other than a smartphone "big black rectangle with rounded edges and a button physical center."

The first breakthrough in technology allows completely transparent to imagine new concepts, new uses (advertising, for example) but does not seem ready yet. Indeed, no picture and no details on the resolution displayed by the screen was communicated by example. Components, such as processors and graphics chipset, and their frequency of use have not been disclosed. The battery capacity and the technology they will hold a day use? And finally what about the service: we find easily spare parts trade in?

The idea of ​​a totally transparent is no longer only science fiction but we still wonder what can make this "innovation" to the user through a mobile phone.

PlayStation 4: new technical specifications

After the Xbox 720 , it is the turn of the PlayStation 4 to talk about it since VGLeaks claims to be able to get their hands on the data sheet for the next home console from Sony. A console that would be required as a true powerhouse with no less than eight cores clocked at 1.6 Ghz and GPU to a large green with envy little Wii U. And if you want more, if you want to get an idea of what could (the conditional is not for nothing) propose the PS4, then you know what you have to do.

At the risk of repeating myself, it must be remembered that all the rumors are not always reliable, and even less when it comes to products also expected that the PlayStation 4 . Everything that follows should be taken with caution, even if the information revealed by VGLeaks ultimately prove quite close to those obtained by Kotaku last week.

PlayStation 4: CPU

We start with the CPU of the PlayStation 4. According to sources on the site, the project would benefit from Orbis octo-core AMD processor running at 1.6Ghz Jaguar and structured around two "clusters" that share an L2 cache of 2 MB. You can specify, for those who do not know this chip, it replaces Bobcat. Here is a list of the different features of this processor features identified by VGLeaks:
  • 256-bit operations, 128-bit SIMD ALU.
  • SSE SSE4 and AVX extensions.
  • One thread for each core.
  • A cache L1-I and L1-D 32 Kb for each core.
  • GFlops 102.4 for the system.
  • Not being an expert in chips, I can not tell you more so if you know better than me on the subject, your feedback is appreciated.

PlayStation 4 GPU

It connects with the GPU which should be based on AMD R10XX . Again, this is not the first time we hear it as the document leaked by Kotaku stated exactly the same thing. However, it seems that VGLeaks has gotten a little more about this chip and now and some of its supposed characteristics:
  • DirectX 11.1.
  • Calculation units 18.
  • Material balance calculation units to 14.
  • Shared L2 cache 512 Kb 800 Mhz.
  • Dual Shader Engines.
  • 18 texture units, 8 render backends.
  • Again, if you are able to give us a quick analysis of these data, it is important not to deprive yourself.

PlayStation 4: the rest

In addition to the CPU and GPU, the PlayStation 4 "Orbis" embark also 4 GB of RAM (176 GB / s) with 3.5 GB would be solely dedicated to games. In addition, the console would benefit from a Blu-ray drive capable of reading cookies with a layer (25 GB) and dual layer (50 GB) . For storing files and demos, it would be possible to rely on a hard disk of 500 GB , which may, in the near future, be supplemented by an SSD.

Connectivity would not be left with an Ethernet port 1 GB / s , a chip WiFi 802.11 b / g / n and Bluetooth . Among the devices provided, there would be a new type Dualshock controller, a camera with two sensors and good old PS Move.
