Tim Cook reveals contact tracing API will be out on April 28: Report
Apple is joining Google and creating a contact tracing system that will help curb the spread of the coronavirus. They’ll do it by releasing a cross-platform API to let developers build these contact tracing apps and their goal is to release it on the 28th. Now, due to feedback, Apple and Google will be making some changes to it focused on stronger privacy protections and accuracy. It would be called an Exposure Notification with the intention of notifying a person of potential exposure through encrypted data augmenting the broader contact tracing efforts that public health authorities are undertaking.
Samsung announced earlier this week that they are working on a 600MP camera sensor, which is apparently capable of capturing more detail than the human eye. We know that Xiaomi uses Samsung’s camera sensors and Ice Universe posted on Weibo that Samsung is working on a 150MP sensor that will be released this year, which will most likely come first on a Xiaomi phone like what we saw with the 108MP sensor. It’s not clear which phone is getting it but it is expected to come out in Q4.

Story of the day:
Could the 2020 iPhone SE arrive with an underclocked A13 Bionic processor?
The iPhone SE is now available and users who pre-ordered are now starting to get the phone. So naturally, the phone was just passed through an AnTuTu benchmark and it actually got an underwhelming score. The A13 in the SE got a 492K score which is way off the 521K the 11 Pro got. This sparks off rumors that the iPhone SE might bring an underclocked variant of the A13 Bionic, which makes sense. This could also be because of other circumstances like the fact that it has less RAM and we also don’t know under what circumstances the phone was benchmarked.
