Happy New Year to everyone. So a few have been asking if I have the BMAX S15 and the F6 Plus ordered, yes both are on the way and they will definitely be the last Gemini Lake laptops I’ll be reviewing. Some time in Q1/Q2 we should hear or see even the new Gemini Lake successor the Intel Elkhart Lake by then. Expect it to be a small bump up in performance like the Apollo Lake to Gemini Lake was, I’m not holding my breath Intel will do something drastic with the next-gen SoC. I really want now is to see the Manufactures giving us larger batteries. And hopefully more of the same good designs with improvements like more USB 3 ports, full spec Type-C and no going back to DDR4 4GB RAM only!
We always see the same 37Wh battery cells, consisting of two 5000mah cells. for 10,000mAh in total. But many times now I’ve seen there is room to have a third cell, so 15,000mAh. Then we could have over 10 hours of run time. And I’ll definitely be reviewing the new Elkhart Lake releases once out from Chuwi, Teclast, BMAX, and Alldocube perhaps.
Below is a list of what’s next in the channel in the coming weeks. In no set order:
- Earbud review
- Teclast F6 Plus (Due next week with DHL)
- Roborock S5 Max robot vacuum review
- BMAX S15 (due in about 10 days I guess)
- eMove Cruiser eScooter, a review of the new revised model.
- Possible 3D printer review (Creality)
Possible reviews: Xiaomi Redmibook 13 / Mi Notebook Pro 2020 edition this has been requested a few times. A lot of you have been asking for an Honor Magicbook or Redmibook 14 AMD review. Truth is the AMD Ryzen 5 3500U Magicbook I reviewed was disappointing performance-wise a good 20% less than Intel’s offering and poor driver updates etc. I’m not sure I’ll bother again until the AMD Ryzen Mobile offers something a little more in this space.
Also, I post a poll on Twitter if you wanted to see a review of the new Mediatek 1000T powered Oppo Reno 3 or the new Realme X50, both 5G phones. As I guessed not much interest in them. I’ll wait for the new big releases.
As for what’s next with the channel. More of the same, I have no big plans to change no ridiculous 2020 goals to double views and subscribers. Only to enjoy what I’m doing and hopefully, you lot also enjoy the videos and reviews.
Any interest in these 5G Chinese phones for review? (Will release outside of China soon) Oppo Reno 3 with the new Mediatek 1000T and the Realme X50 5G with the Snapgraon 765G or none?
