HP's EliteBooks pack mics on both sides for clearer Skyping

  HP's EliteBooks pack mics on both sides for clearer Skyping Laptop updates are no longer confined to boring iterative improvements year after year. The so-called world-facing mic is actually a microphone on the outside of the laptop's lid, and can be used in two modes. When you're in conferencing mode and the people around you are also participants in your call, the outside mic can better pick up their voices. In individual mode, the extra mic can be used for noise cancellation, making for stronger projection of your voice. It's not just for Skype calls, either, since the feature is managed by HP's built-in Noise Cancellation software and is meant for "PC calls".

Now, though, the new ZenBook 13 UX331 offers the whole shebang at just 0.47-0.55 inches thick and weighing in at just 2.47lbs, with a discrete graphics card on board and a 13.3" FHD touchscreen display.

The visual grunt work comes courtesy of an Nvidia GeForce MX150 2GB GDDR5 GPU, and will provide extra performance for gaming and GPU-intensive tasks and certainly a boost over the Intel UHD cards found in ultrabook counterparts. ASUS says it's the world's thinnest laptop with a discrete GPU, and it'll no doubt play a role in bumping the brand's sales of gaming machines, which Asus expects to increase by 33 percent this year.

HTC demos what looks to be the U12 with gigabit LTE

  HTC demos what looks to be the U12 with gigabit LTE HTC showcased a phone that’s rumored to be its next flagship, the U12, during a 5G event in Taiwan last week. While little is known about this mystery phone, the details seem to line up: HTC tends to release its flagships in the spring, so the timing is right, and it has a large, 18:9 screen with thin bezels, like the recent U11 Plus, suggesting it’s a higher-end device.While the HTC phone was shown off at a 5G event, it isn’t strictly using 5G technology. Instead, it’s going to be using gigabit LTE tech that includes something known as Licensed Assisted Access, or LAA.
