‘Matrix 4’ Officially a Go With Keanu Reeves, Carrie-Anne Moss and Lana Wachowski

Get ready to re-enter the Matrix.

Lana Wachowski is set to write and direct a fourth film set in the world of “The Matrix,” with Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss reprising their roles as Neo and Trinity, respectively.

Warner Bros. Pictures and Village Roadshow Pictures will produce and globally distribute the film. Warner Bros. Picture Group chairman Toby Emmerich made the announcement on Tuesday.

“We could not be more excited to be re-entering ‘The Matrix’ with Lana,” said Emmerich. “Lana is a true visionary — a singular and original creative filmmaker — and we are thrilled that she is writing, directing and producing this new chapter in ‘The Matrix’ universe.”

In addition to Wachowski, the script was also written by Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell. Wachowski is also producing with Grant Hill. Sources say the film is eyed to begin production at the top of 2020.

Huawei’s Kirin 990 chipset will finally support 4K video capture at 60fps

With Huawei’s P20 Pro last year and this year’s P30 Pro, the company pulled off some incredible camera innovations, at least in the photo department. In terms of recording video, it hasn’t done as much. Part of the reason for this is because the Kirin 970 and Kirin 980 chipsets don’t support recording video at 4K 60fps, a feature that you’d expect from such camera-centric smartphones.

Luckily, that’s about to change with the next generation. While I was in Shenzhen for the past week, Huawei confirmed that the Kirin 990 will indeed support recording video at 4K 60fps. Starting with the Mate 30 series, you’ll no longer have to choose between a high resolution and a high frame rate.

The ability to record at 4K 60fps is something that competitors have had for a couple of years now. Apple was the first to do it back in the fall of 2017 with the iPhone 8, 8 Plus, and X. Later when Qualcomm introduced support for it in the Snapdragon 845 chipset, Samsung picked up the feature in the spring of 2018 with the Galaxy S9 series.

Huawei’s HiSilicon 990 is expected to show up in the Mate 30 series, which is rumored to launch on September 19. The company also confirmed that it will be in the foldable Mate X, and it should also be available in next year’s P40, along with a variety of other premium smartphones, such as those that arrive under the Honor banner.

AMD Sharkstooth Shows Up on Geekbench: Possible Zen 2 Threadripper

AMD is possibly testing its 3rd generation Ryzen Threadripper HEDT processors, with an interesting entry showing up on the Geekbench online database. The entry speaks of an “AMD Sharkstooth” processor with 32 cores and 64 threads, with a nominal clock speed of 3.60 GHz, and the long-form model number “AuthenticAMD Family 23 Model 49 Stepping 0.” None of the 2nd generation EPYC processors correspond with these specs, and so we’re almost certain this is a client-segment Ryzen Threadripper part.

The prototyping platform, which is a motherboard designed in-house by AMD to test the processor’s various components and I/O capabilities, is codenamed “WhiteHavenOC-CP.” In this Geekbench submission, the processor is paired with around 128 GB of memory, and tested on 64-bit Linux. The platform yields a multi-threaded score of 94,772 points, which is about 18.5 percent higher than what a Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX typically manages when tested on Linux. It is also within 5% of what the Xeon W-3175X manages (around 99,000 points). The production model could be clocked higher. AMD will also use the opportunity to launch a new motherboard chipset while maintaining backwards-compatibility with the AMD X399. This new chipset will enable PCI-Express gen 4.0 and come with stiffer CPU VRM and memory/PCIe wiring specifications to enable higher memory clocks and PCIe link stability. AMD is expected to launch its 3rd gen Ryzen Threadripper this October, to preempt Intel’s next HEDT processor series.

All the games coming to Google’s Stadia cloud streaming service

Google’s cloud gaming platform, Stadia, is just months away from its release, and the company continues to announce new games. Stadia is arriving in November, priced at $9.99 per month for access to the premium tier of service. While you’ll be able to use Google’s powerful cloud servers for that subscription, you will need to purchase the majority of games separately.

Google hasn’t confirmed exact game pricing and availability just yet, but the big launch titles are Destiny 2, today’s brand-new addition Cyberpunk 2077, and Baldur’s Gate III. Destiny 2 takes advantage of cross-save support that Google is bringing to Stadia, allowing players to share their progression between Xbox, PC, and Stadia.

Bill Gates says his ‘greatest mistake ever’ was Microsoft losing to Android

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates has been reflecting on his time at the company when crucial decisions were made over its mobile operating system. During a recent interview at Village Global, a venture capital firm, Gates revealed his “greatest mistake ever” was Microsoft missing the Android opportunity:

“In the software world, particularly for platforms, these are winner-take-all markets. So the greatest mistake ever is whatever mismanagement I engaged in that caused Microsoft not to be what Android is. That is, Android is the standard non-Apple phone platform. That was a natural thing for Microsoft to win. It really is winner take all. If you’re there with half as many apps or 90 percent as many apps, you’re on your way to complete doom. There’s room for exactly one non-Apple operating system and what’s that worth? $400 billion that would be transferred from company G to company M.”

Huawei P30 Pro camera review vs Samsung Galaxy S10+ vs Apple iPhone XS Max

If you still needed a reason to spend money on a compact camera, it would have been for zoom reach, as even the best smartphone cameras could not provide usable zoom image quality beyond a 5x factor. This has now changed with the Huawei P30 Pro and its innovative zoom system that uses folded optics and a super-resolution algorithm, which finally makes usable 10x zoom on smartphones a reality.

The zoom on its own will make the new Huawei an extremely tempting option for many mobile photographers, but the camera performs very well in almost all other areas as well. The bokeh mode is the best we have seen; image detail and noise levels are excellent across all light levels; and the camera records high-quality footage in video mode. There is still some room for improvement in terms of color and artifacts, but these are relatively minor shortcomings that most users will be able to easily live with.

Add the super-wide-angle camera (which as with other devices with a similar camera setup, did not have an impact on Huawei’s DxOMark score) into the mix, and the P30 Pro is easily the most versatile mobile imaging tool to date, allowing you to cover a wider range of photographic situations than any other smartphone.

Nokia 9 PureView goes official, see the first five-camera setup

“Well, it’s glass, dual-glass to be precise and a metal frame holding those together. We live in the glass smartphones era, so there is little surprise HMD chose to stick with the timeless glass body. The Nokia 9 is also IP67-rated for dust and water resistance. There is a 5.99″ P-OLED display at the front, HDR10-compliant, with a flagship-grade resolution of 2,880 x 1,440 pixels or QHD+. A Gorilla Glass 5 piece keeps that OLED safe from cracks and major scratches. Nokia has opted for an under-display fingerprint scanner, which is the latest trend, but you can also use AI-driven Face Unlock, if that’s your thing.” Read more here:
