Everything you need to know about the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro
Google has finally lifted the veil on its new Pixel 6 and 6 Pro, which stand out from all current smartphones in particular by their very original design which may not appeal to everyone but which has the merit of being different. The Pixel 6 and 6 Pro use for the first time a chip developed by Google called Tensor. Both models are IP68 certified, integrate stereo speakers and have their screen protected by a Corning Gorilla Glass Victus coating. The Pixel 6 and 6 Pro will be available on October 28 from € 649 for the standard model and € 899 for the Pro version.

A UFO spotted in the sky by a spy plane
On November 23, 2019, a US Department of Homeland Security spy plane spotted a plastic duck-shaped UFO traveling between 145 and 320 km / h. A video of the images captured by the reconnaissance aircraft has been shared online. Former US Army Counter-Intelligence Special Agent Luis Elizondo told The Sun it could be multiple balloons tied together. Thermal imaging expert Dave Falch said he was “completely lost as to what it could be.”

Our tests of the week
Lenovo Legion Slim 7 PC: full equipment and consistent performance
The Lenovo Legion Slim 7 is a compact laptop offering full equipment and good performance boosted by the AMD Ryzen 9 5900HX processor. Its Nvidia RTX 3060 graphics chip offers a satisfactory level of performance. We particularly like its matt IPS LCD panel and the fact that the ventilation is not too noisy. We do not like the absence of an Ethernet connector and HDMI video output which are very lacking as well as the autonomy considered insufficient.

9/10 for the Huawei Matebook 14s
The mid-range ultrabook is back at Huawei with the Matebook 14s and that’s a nice surprise. This new PC offers very good performance, satisfactory autonomy with its 60 Wh battery and appreciable rapid recharging. On the screen side, in addition to the somewhat shiny LCD panel, the high definition screen is well calibrated and the maximum display frequency is now 90 Hz. The Matebook 14s has 4 speakers and the sound is rather well defined. We regret that the Intel processor has only 4 cores and we note that the 3: 2 screen format is not very suitable for videos. The Matebook 14s will be available from October 25 and one of the only negative points is its price significantly higher compared to its predecessor since it will be marketed from 1349 €.
