Latest Updates: New Linux Laptop, Rockchip Processor and Pixel 9 Leak


Anticipated to arrive later this fall, Google’s Pixel 9 series smartphones have already been the topic of discussion due to speculated details leaking earlier this year. These leaks comprised a series of images that ostensibly portrayed the Google Pixel 9 and Pixel 9 Pro.

However, a recent report suggests that the earlier images were in fact showcasing the Pixel 9 Pro and Pixel 9 Pro XL. It is now believed that Google intends to unveil three models this year. The basic model Pixel 9 is expected to come with a 6-inch display and two cameras, whereas the Pixel 9 Pro could feature a 6.2-inch screen with three cameras and the Pixel 9 Pro may boast a 6.5-inch screen.

Here’s a brief overview of the latest tech news from multiple sources.

It is speculated that Google will launch the Pixel 9, 9 Pro, and 9 Pro XL editions this year. The designs of the more advanced models have already leaked, but we may have our first look at the basic version. Allegedly, the Pixel 9 will be a 6-inch phone equipped with two rear cameras instead of three.

Android 15 will prohibit users from setting up apps engineered for Android 6 or its older versions. The rationale behind this measure is to augment security, considering the fact that malware frequently aims at antiquated APIs devoid of advanced security facets such as seeking permission to gain access to confidential data.

Penning down thoughts for Android Police, Mishaal Rahman remarks that it isn’t impossible for users to sideload older apps, even though one has to link their phone to a computer and resort to Google’s adb tools for the same. This would increase the effort necessary to install apps that aim at SDK version 22 or those below it.

The freshly emergent RK3582 processor from Rockchip is a budget-friendly alternative to the RK3588S. However, it brags of less Cortex-A76 cores, lacks a GPU, and provides a marginally weakened NPU.

The most recent System76 Oryx Pro Linux laptop can now be pre-ordered at a starting price of $1899. It comes with a 16-inch FHD+ 165 Hz display, is powered by a Core i9-14900HX processor, provides Thunderbolt 4, 2.5 GbE LAN, and extends to RTX 4070 graphics, 96GB RAM, 8TB storage.
