Apple Prepares to Release MacBook Pro and MacBook Air with M3 Chipset in Early 2024 Apple is rumored to be releasing two new MacBooks early next year. This information is known based on a report by Mark Gurman from Bloomberg who said that Apple will present a MacBook Pro with the M3 chipset, which will be released in early 2024. 

Apart from the MacBook Pro , a new variant of the MacBook Air with the M3 chipset is also said to be coming a few months later. Quoting information from Engadget , Tuesday (17/10/2023), these two laptops were initially predicted to hit the global market in October 2023.

Through his report, Gurman said that improvements to these two products were currently under development. However, he estimates that Apple will not present any significant updates. 

Improved Performance Between Chips

In terms of specifications, Apple promises a 20 percent increase in performance on the M2 Pro chipset compared to the previous generation, namely the M1.

Not only that, the company also equipped this new laptop with a unified memory bandwidth of 200GB/s--twice that of the M2--and up to 32GB of memory.

Laptop performance is also further improved with a new GPU with 19 cores, and a Neural Engine which is claimed to be 40 percent faster than before.

Samsung Galaxy A51 Specifications and Latest Price 2019 Samsung A51 will be placed in the mid-range segment by carrying a Punch Hole screen (Infinity O-Display) like the Samsung Galaxy Note 10. The design is similar to Note 10, because it has a hole in the middle of the screen. But for the hardware specifications are mid-range specifications by relying on Exynos 9611.

Premium design is the main advantage of the Galaxy A51. This smartphone is certainly interesting to wait for its presence in Indonesia because it can be an alternative to the Galaxy A50s which has been officially released a while ago.

Interestingly, the Galaxy A51 has 4 cameras with configurations that can meet all photography needs. The camera resolution is also very high, both for the front or rear camera. Now to see more about what the specifications are, please see below.

At present all smartphone manufacturers are competing to bring the best Android mobile screens. But to this day Samsung remains the best, thanks to its Super Amoled technology.

Galaxy A51 certainly already uses Super Amoled panels whose image quality is very clear and sharp. The screen is stretched as wide as 6.5 inches with a resolution reaching 1080 x 2340 pixels and has a density of 396 ppi with a ratio of 19.5: 9.

The most interesting thing is the presence of the front camera hole which is made symmetrically in the upper center of the Galaxy A51. Then for the back has 4 cameras that indicate that the Galaxy A51 is prepared as a smarpthone photography.

The design of the Galaxy A51 is also very thin with a length of 158.4 mm, width 73.7 mm, and a thickness of 7.9 mm. Samsung placed a fingerprint scanner sensor inside the screen and still provides a 3.5mm audio jack and microSD slot to complement the Galaxy A51.

Continuing on the matter of performance, the Galaxy A51 offers a fast pacemaker by relying on the Exynos 9611 chipset made with 10mm fabrication. The chipset has Octa Core processor speed which is divided into two cores, namely Quad Core 2.3 Ghz Cortex-A73 and Quad Core 1.7 Ghz Cortex-A53.

There is also Mali-G72 MP3 graphic processing and the Android Pie 9.0 operating system wrapped in the OneUI interface. Available memory configurations also vary, starting from 4GB / 64GB Ram, 4GB / 128GB Ram, and 6GB / 128GB Ram. If the internal memory is lacking, we can also add microSD up to 1TB.

The four camera configurations on the back side of the Samsung A51 make this smartphone's photography capabilities quite capable. Because, Samsung equip the Galaxy A51 with a 48 Megapixel main camera that is supported by a 1/2 ″ sensor, 0.8µm with an f / 1.8 aperture and PDFA equipped.

Then the second sensor is a 12 Megapixel Telephoto lens with 2x Optical Zoom. Then there is the 12 Megapixel Ultrawide lens and 5 Megapixel Depth Sensor. To maximize the ability of the camera, Samsung provides a variety of photographic features such as Live Focus, HDR, Panorama, to 4K video recording capabilities.

The front camera of the Galaxy A51 is equally interesting. This phone has a 32 Megapixel front camera which is placed in the middle of the screen. The ability of the front camera will be very capable for selfies or making vlog videos, because it has the Live Focus feature.

For those who wish to buy a Samsung Galaxy Note 10, but the money is not enough then the Galaxy A51 can be an alternative. I think the price of the Samsung Galaxy A51 will be far cheaper than the Galaxy Note 10, which costs tens of millions of rupiah.

Although the price of Samsung Galaxy A51 is cheaper, the quality of this smartphone cannot be underestimated. Moreover, Samsung has provided it with complete connectivity features and a large battery capacity of 4,000 mAh which is supported by the Fast Charging feature

Whereas the connectivity supports Wi-Fi 802.11 a / b / g / n / ac Dual Band, Bluetooth v5.0, GPS (A-GPS, GLONASS, GALILEO, BDS), NFC, and USB Type-C ports. Well armed with all these features, then what is the price of the Samsung Galaxy A51 in Indonesia?
