TicWatch Pro aims to tackle smartwatch battery life with an always-on second screen

Smart Mode keeps the OLED display active as you use Wear OS to send out messages, control your music, and whatever else you use Google's smartwatch platform for. "Ultimately, TicWatch Pro is our flagship smartwatch created to further our mission of bringing anyone and everyone access to affordable, high-quality smart devices".
The Ticwatch Pro's biggest feature is the display.
When is it out?
The TicWatch Pro can now be availed on Amazon with a $249.99 price tag.
The latest news is the watch is on sale in the US, UK and Australia, with a few other countries joining it. You can use several health and fitness apps available and even change the watch face. And then just last May, we learned about the Ticwatch Pro Wear OS.
Let's start with the screen, because that's by far the most interesting part of the Ticwatch Pro. It's actually something called a "Film compensated Super Twisted Nematic (FSTN)" LCD sitting on top of an OLED.
That second screen is transparent when it's not in use, so you'll only ever be looking at one screen at a time.
The OLED display underneath is the main display where the Wear OS and its attractive UI are shown. The display will show you, well, essential information such as the time, date, steps taken, and your heart rate.
The rest of the case is made of hard nylon reinforced with glass fibre. The skin-friendly silicon strap is covered with a premium grade Italian leather. It's available in black and silver. The TicWatch Pro does have a rating of IP68, meaning it should survive a dip in the pool of up to 1.5 meters for 30 minutes. The device also comes with NFC which makes it suitable for cardless payment.
Apparently, the U.S. might also get a model with LTE included, which could allow you to use the watch in full while leaving your phone at home, but this isn't confirmed and it's not clear whether anywhere else will get a version with LTE. An LTE version of the watch is expected down the road. The TicWatch Pro is powered, sadly, by an old Qualcomm Snapdragon Wear 2100, with 512 GB of RAM and 4 GB of storage. Instead of TicWatch Pro OS, this one runs on Wear OS by Google. On a full charge, Essential mode can last up to thirty days, according to the company.
The other option is "Essential Mode" which basically turns off Wear OS and just uses the FSTN display. The first is "Smart Mode" which uses a combination of the two displays to maximize battery life without compromising the experience.

As we get closer to Samsung's Unpacked press conference on August 9th, we're bound to see even more Note 9 leaks... like this one. The phone will look a lot like the previous Note model and it'll mostly sport the same specs as the Galaxy S9 phones.
A mid-engine layout is now in the discussion, but AMG also hasn't ruled out a more conventional front-engine layout. This would mean the new model would have a front-mid-mounted engine, which makes sense from a cost perspective.

This is in addition to the Surface Connector which can also be used for charging purposes and connecting the Surface desktop dock. As for cameras, you're looking at typical front and back cameras with a Windows Hello IR Camera for facial recognition security.

Epic Games will turn the servers offline today as they bring in the brand new season in their fortnightly content update. HOWEVER, we imagine that you haven't seen or heard anything about the official new skins which leaked late last night.
