For now, however, the best deals on TVs aren’t at Amazon at all, but instead at Best Buy, Walmart, Target and Sam’s Club.

Sony has been saying for months that the vast majority of PS4 games will work on PS5 through backwards compatibility, and it’s good to get some clarity on those that won’t work. Microsoft, on the other hand, says titles going all the way back to the original Xbox will work on Xbox Series X and Series S.
There are some other details about the PS5 backwards compatibility on Sony’s support page. Some PS4 games will get a bit of an upgrade, thanks to the PS5’s Game Boost feature, which seems similar to the PS4 Pro’s Boost Mode. Compatible titles will run more smoothly and/or have a higher frame rate.
Certain features in some titles might not work on PS5 (though Sony didn’t go into specifics), and you might run into “errors or unexpected behavior” while playing PS4 games. The company suggests testing your PS4 games on PS5 before buying any
With PlayStation 5’s launch about a month away, you might expect to have a firmer grasp on what the console is all about by now. Yes, you’ll be able to play most PS4 games on it, and you can expect Sony’s strong first-party lineup to be available in the coming years. We know how to take it apart, install an extra SSD, and switch from horizontal to vertical orientation. Oh, and it’s got Bugsnax. But there are a ton of questions that still remain, including some critical ones that are made all the weirder when you consider that you may have already spent money on a PS5 preorder.
There’s the immediately obvious stuff: What the heck does the PS5’s UI look like? Is this a carryover of the PS4’s menu setup? Will I finally be able to pin things so that Rez Infinite is only ever a button press or
PlayStation accidentally leaked a major PS5 feature
Sony later confirmed and offered some details about the upcoming PS5 feature
PlayStation has accidentally confirmed that the long-awaited feature that hardcore PS fans have been requesting is coming to PS5.
The information was leaked by the French arm of PlayStation. In a blog, it revealed that the PS5 would add trophy progress. Unfortunately, the blog did not offer many details about the feature, but it mentioned that it would be able to track the progress of earning individual trophies.
The new PS5 feature would make it easier for players to keep track of a certain amount of collectibles, wins, or kills, particularly if there is uncertainty on how much work is needed on the player’s part. This detail was not however, included in the English PlayStation blog but available in the
Rising competition from Samsung, OmniVision and SK Hynix
The global smartphone Image sensor market reached a total revenue of $6.3 billion in H1 2020, according to the Strategy Analytics Handset Component Technologies service report, “Smartphone Image Sensor Market Share Q2 2020: Revenue down by 6 percent as Sony dominates the market.”
This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20201007005124/en/
According to this research report, the total smartphone image sensor market witnessed a 15 percent year-over-year revenue growth in H1 2020. Sony captured the first position in the smartphone image sensor market with 44 percent revenue share followed by Samsung System LSI and OmniVision Technologies in the first half of the year. The top-three vendors capturedalmost 85 percent revenue share in the global smartphone image sensor market in H1 2020.
Sony continues to buck conventional smartphone trends.
Its latest, the Xperia 1 II flagship smartphone (available on Lazada), is taller than usual because of the unusual 21:9 screen aspect ratio it first introduced last year.
The Xperia 1 II also eschews the hole-punch selfie camera and the in-display fingerprint reader – used by almost all smartphone vendors to achieve a near-bezel-less display.
Instead, the Xperia 1 II has relatively thick top and bottom bezels to accommodate its front camera and dual stereo speakers. The phone also has a side-mounted capacitive fingerprint reader.
In addition, you will find a headphone jack, a port that has been removed from most high-end phones. The SIM card tray can be removed without an eject tool and comes with a microSD card slot that lets users expand the phone’s 256GB of built-in storage by up to an additional 1TB.
TOKYO (Reuters) – Japan’s Sony Corp and memory chipmaker Kioxia Holdings Corp have applied for U.S. approval to continue supplying Huawei Technologies Co Ltd, Nikkei reported on Sunday.
If confirmed, the move follows other tech companies such as Intel Corp that recently received licences from U.S. authorities.
With U.S.-China ties at their worst in decades, Washington has been pushing governments around to world to squeeze out Huawei, arguing that the telecoms giant would transfer data to the Chinese government for espionage.
Huawei is one of the top customers for Sony’s image sensors for smartphones. Kioxia Holdings Corp is the world’s No. 2 maker of flash memory chips and a Huawei supplier.
Nikkei here said without U.S. licenses, Sony and Kioxia would face risk to their earnings.
