LG’s next flagship arrives in June with Snapdragon 845, 6.1″ screen, stereo speakers

Since the G6 was unwrapped at MWC last year, you might expect LG to unveil the G7 at the end of this month in Barcelona, but you’d be wrong. The Korean company has recently decided to overhaul its launch strategy, so all we’re getting at MWC 2018 is apparently an AI-infused iteration of the V30. LG’s true next flagship smartphone is set to arrive in June, according to a new report from VentureBeat’s Evan Blass, a.k.a. @evleaks. This device will not be called G7, which means we may bid farewell to the G series. Right now it’s known only by its codename: Judy. LG V30, Judy’s…

If you are the one who can’t wait for these much-awaited features and wish to find out how they would function on the smart speaker, there is a workaround that can let you fill the gap to a great extent! There are a couple of fine apps that can let you create a stereo HomePod pair without AirPlay 2.

How to Create a Stereo HomePod Pair Using AirFoil on Mac or Windows PC

Meet AirFoil, a robust audio tool. It is available on macOS and Windows and allows you to create a multi-room setup between multiple AirPlay and Bluetooth devices.

Step #1. First and foremost, download AirFoil from Rogue Amoeba’s website. It comes at $ 29 per user and is available for free trial.

Step #2. After you have downloaded the app, copy it to your Application folder.

Step #3. Now, open it and select your audio source.

Note: If the audio source is iTunes, you will need to download an add-on. Don’t worry, it’s free and doesn’t take much time to get downloaded.

Step #4. Next, head over to your Applications folder on macOS and find the AirFoil file.

Step #5. Next up, you need to right-click on file and select “Duplicate.”

It will create a duplicate application of AirFoil. Then, open both the copies.

Step #6. In one of the instance of AirFoil, you have to select the HomePod which is on the right side of the configuration.

Then, you need to click the equalizer icon at the top and drag the Balance slider to the right side. It will play only the right channel through that speaker.

Step #7. In the other instance of the app, select the speaker that’s on the left side of your configuration. Then, click the equalizer icon at the top and drag the Balance slider to the left side. It will play only the left channel through that speaker.

That’s done!

You have successfully, created stereo HomePod configuration. Now, keep the same audio channel selected in both instances of AirFoil to enjoy music at its very best.

What if you don’t have Mac or Windows PC? No problem, you can AirPlay to two HomePods from your iOS device as well.

Samsung Galaxy S9 rumored to include 3D emoji and stereo speakers

Samsung Galaxy S9 details continue to leak out ahead of Samsung’s big February 25 event.

Two new Galaxy S9 features have been revealed in a report from ETNews. According to that publication, the Galaxy S9 will have a 3D emoji feature that will be “more advanced” that the iPhone X’s Animoji. With this feature, you can choose a 3D animal character that will follow the movements of your face and can be used in texts and instant messages.

It’s not surprising to hear that Samsung may be cooking up a 3D emoji feature. Not only did Animoji become popular in the months following the launch of the iPhone X, but the Galaxy S9 is expected to include its own facial recognition functionality, which would help enable Animoji-style 3D characters with face tracking.

Also rumored to be coming to the Galaxy S9 are stereo speakers. This report backs up a previous Galaxy S9 leak that said the device will have AKG stereo speakers.
