Winners and Losers: One UI 4.0 authorised and your Christmas current compromised


Whereas the most effective of the week is principally the great reception of Samsung’s new Android 12-based interface, the worst deserves slightly extra consideration. On Wednesday, my colleague Benjamin Lucks touched on an vital matter for late 2021: The scarcity of electronics components within the international market. And that is our choose for the loser’s facet of the previous few and coming days.

However earlier than we discuss in regards to the central theme of this text, I share under 5 highlights from NextPit‘s protection of the previous week:

Winner of the Week: One UI 4.0 seems to be good

The truth that Microsoft introduced this week that it contained the biggest DDoS assault in current occasions was actually related, however on this Sunday’s column I made a decision to deliver Samsung’s Android 12-based interface as NextPit’s massive spotlight in current days.

After releasing the second beta of One UI 4.0, we noticed that the South Korean electronics large has adopted Google’s Dynamic Theme on the Galaxy line working system. And the NextPit neighborhood responded fairly positively to Samsung’s Materials You retread:

Our check of Samsung’s Colour Theme was probably the most learn article throughout all NextPit domains within the week, and from the feedback, the event of One UI 4.0 appears to be heading in the right direction, leaving the system much more mature in line with our neighborhood.

I assumed it was evolution, even when the present interface fits me completely. Cannot wait to see what it seems to be like in actual life.

Recently, we’ve seen numerous headlines warning of part shortages within the electronics market worldwide. With key e-commerce dates like Black Friday and Christmas approaching, the state of affairs will get even worse.

Contemplating this state of affairs, in Wednesday’s editorial, my colleague Benjamin Lucks described a few of the most important causes for the components disaster out there and reported on how smartphone producers like HMD International and Samsung are getting ready to take care of the present fluctuations within the semiconductor market.

And the worst of this disaster is but to return, as a result of with the shortage of components, we even have the rise in costs of electronics. It is the previous regulation of provide and demand: if sellers have little stock, there isn’t any want for giant presents, as a result of folks have a tendency to purchase all the pieces anyway – anybody who tried to purchase a next-generation console or PC graphics card final yr felt it.

By the way in which, that is additionally the theme of our ballot this week, so get entangled!
