The fu­ture is in soft­ware

HWM (Malaysia) - - NEWS -

It’s the sec­ond half of 2017, which means we’re that much closer to get­ting hold of the iPhone 8 and Gal­axy Note 8. While both Ap­ple and Sam­sung are re­port­edly fac­ing dif­fi­culty in­cor­po­rat­ing an on-dis­play finger­print sen­sor on their re­spec­tive flag­ship de­vices, there’s a chance the smart­phone ri­vals may be beaten to the punch by Chi­nese man­u­fac­turer vivo, as a brief video sur­faced on Weibo of a working pro­to­type in ac­tion. It’ll be in­ter­est­ing to see how the iPhone 8 and Gal­axy Note 8 per­form when they are re­vealed in the com­ing months.

Our cover story for this is­sue con­cerns a trio of de­vel­oper con­fer­ences that took place con­sec­u­tively from May to June (page 46, ‘Google, Ap­ple, Mi­crosoft: In a fu­ture that lies in soft­ware, who’s got the bet­ter tech?’), fol­lowed by a fea­ture on mesh net­work­ing (page 54, ‘Redefining Wi-Fi at home’), and a roundup of in­ter­est­ing an­nounce­ments from Asia’s largest ICT tradeshow (page 60, ‘COMPUTEX 2017: Build­ing global tech­nol­ogy ecosys­tems’). As for GAX, we dished out our very own E3 2017 awards, along with re­views that will please fight­ing game fans.
