Australia’s 5G smartphone shipments have increased significantly over the past 12 months, according to the latest data released by market research firm IDC. If in the first quarter of 2020 they accounted for less than 14% of all shipments, then in the first quarter of 2021 the share of smartphones with 5G support in the Australian market exceeded 55%.
Growth accelerated significantly in the fourth quarter of 2020 and the first quarter of 2021, analysts note. In their opinion, this is primarily due to the increased availability of 5G devices.
“The release of the iPhone 12 series in Q4 2020 and the Samsung Galaxy S21 series in Q1 2021, which include only 5G devices, undoubtedly contributed to the share growth,” said John Riga, an analyst at IDC. “In addition, the increased range of 5G devices in recent quarters, including cheaper Android variants from various brands, has increased the number of consumers looking to purchase a 5G device.”
Over the past year, the number of 5G devices on offer in Australia has grown from nine models in the first quarter of 2020 to thirty-six models in the first quarter of 2021.
Another important factor contributing to the significant growth in the share of 5G-enabled smartphones is the recovery in consumer confidence and the growth of the smartphone market as a whole over the past two quarters. In the fourth quarter of 2020, the year-on-year growth was 8.8%, and in the first quarter of 2021 – 13.5%.
Recall, according to the IDC forecast, the share of 5G smartphones worldwide this year will reach 40%.
The long-awaited Always-On Display in the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max will allow you to display widgets from the lock screen
All the latest data indicates that at least the older smartphones of the iPhone 14 line will receive Always-On Display support.
According to Bloomberg journalist Mark Gurman, the Always-On Display on the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max models will allow new widgets created for the lock screen to be displayed on the screen.
This means that not only the clock can be displayed on the off screen, but also the calendar, unread messages, weather forecast, stock quotes, and so on. All that is in the form of widgets for the lock screen. How it will be possible to interact with such data in Always-On Display mode is still unknown.
The older models of the new generation, we recall, are credited with 120 Hz screens that are capable of reducing the frame rate to 1 Hz. This will allow smartphones to consume battery power very economically in Always-On Display mode.

According to the latest information released by trusted source Digital Chat Station, the iQOO 10 will be the first phone based on the single cryo-published Dimensity 9000+ system.
The Mediatek platform was only announced last week as an improved version of the Dimensity 9000. It has a slight CPU and GPU performance boost, as well as some improvements. The high-performance Cortex-X2 core operates at clock speeds up to 3.2GHz. The Taiwanese manufacturer promised that the first devices with this platform will be released in the third quarter.
According to previous reports, iQOO 10 should also use the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 2 SoC. It seems that iQOO is going to release two versions of the new flagships, offering the customer the choice.
The iQOO 10 is also expected to support 200W ultra-fast charging technology, which will fully charge the battery in just 12 minutes. This will be a new record.
The iQOO 10 will reportedly use a side-curved LTPO 2K screen with 120Hz refresh rate support and a large-area ultrasonic fingerprint under the screen. The main camera will be 50 megapixels.
Digital Chat Station was the first to accurately announce the specifications and release dates of Redmi K50 and Xiaomi 12.
