On January 10, Honor will officially unveil its first foldable smartphone with a flexible screen, the Magic V, but new details have already appeared on the web about the characteristics of the device and, most importantly, the price has been announced. Alas, Magic V will not only be expensive, but very expensive. The cost of the basic version with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of flash memory is $ 2,200. The variant with 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of flash memory is priced at $ 2350. And while the Magic V has several important advantages over the competition, technically, the user (outside of China) will still have to be convinced to pay that much for Honor.
Of those advantages, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 platform (the models released last year are clearly weaker), a large battery (for this class of devices) with a capacity of 4750 mAh with support for fast wired charging with a power of 66 W. Finally, the Magic V is assigned a main camera with three sensors with a resolution of 50 megapixels each.
According to preliminary data, Magic V will receive an external 6.56-inch OLED screen with a frame rate of 90 Hz, and an internal screen (also OLED) is characterized by a diagonal of 8 inches and a frame rate of 120 Hz. The device is also assigned the Android 12 OS with the Magic UI 6.0 interface.
In 9 months of 2023, Samsung sold more than 25 million Galaxy S23 smartphones, almost half of them were Galaxy S23 Ultra
Hana Securities shared sales statistics for Samsung smartphones this year. It turned out that during the period from January to September, Samsung sold 25.06 million smartphones of the flagship Galaxy S23 line – 23% more than the Galaxy S22 was sold during the same period.
The Galaxy S23 Ultra leads the sales structure: 11.63 million devices were sold in 9 months. In second place is the base Galaxy S23 with a result of 8.91 million, and the Galaxy S23 Plus is in the least demand – 4.52 million units were sold.
But Samsung’s line of folding flagships of the new generation is not much more popular than its predecessors: 4.86 million devices of the Galaxy Z5 line were sold in 3 months – only 4% more than in 2022, devices of the Galaxy Z4 series were sold during the same period. The most popular is the Galaxy Z Flip5, with 3.08 million units sold. Sales of Galaxy Z Fold5 amounted to 1.79 million units.
A giant 160-megapixel periscope telephoto camera. Honor Magic6 Pro will stand out from all other smartphones on the market
While Samsung is only promoting its 200-megapixel sensors as “telephotos,” Honor is preparing the world’s first smartphone with such a 160-megapixel camera.
The carrier of such a camera will be Magic6 Pro. It will have a 160-megapixel sensor, but there are no details here. Perhaps physically it will still be a sensor with a resolution of 200 megapixels, but Honor will limit its working area in such a way that only 160 megapixels will be active.
The main camera of the new product will be based on the Omnivision OV50K sensor. This is not an inch sensor, but quite large – 1/1.3-inch optical format. Interestingly, the Honor Magic5 Pro has a larger main camera sensor – 1/1.12 inches.
Insider Digital Chat Station, who shared the information, was previously the first to accurately report the characteristics and release dates of Redmi K30, K40, Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 11.
iPhone 15 is selling significantly better than its predecessors, and the share of older iPhone Pro models is even higher than a year earlier
According to DSCC analysts, sales of the iPhone 15 line of smartphones in October were 16% higher than the iPhone 14 line of devices in the same period last year. Compared to the iPhone 13 line, sales are already 21% higher, which is quite significant.
Analysts also note an increasing bias towards more expensive models. True, they consider this indirectly: through the supply of panels for screens. Panel shipments for the iPhone 15 Pro models account for a higher share compared to the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro. From June to October, iPhone 15 Pro models accounted for 64% of all iPhone 15 models, compared to 54% for the iPhone 14 and iPhone 13 series.
As we remember from the iPhone 14 line, at first it was the iPhone 14 Pro Max that was the sales leader, and only after a while the basic version of the iPhone 14 topped sales. Whether the iPhone 15 Pro Max will be able to maintain its leadership over the entire year of sales of the line is still anyone’s guess.
