Yesterday, Samsung introduced its flagship smartphone Galaxy Z Fold 4, and today its competitor appeared at Xiaomi – the company introduced Xiaomi Mix Fold 2.
In the novelty, the focus is on compactness: Mix Fold 2 received completely new hinges, which made it possible to significantly reduce the thickness of the device. As a result, Mix Fold 2 when unfolded is only a little thicker than a regular USB-C port. The thickness when unfolded is 5.4 mm, when folded it is only 11.4 mm. The weight of the smartphone is 262 grams.
Eco indoor display2 OLED Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 with a diagonal of 8.02 inches and a resolution of 2K. The essence of Eco2 OLED technology is to eliminate one layer, thereby increasing brightness and improving color reproduction. The display is made using LTPO technology and supports automatic frame rate adjustment in a wide range from 1 to 120 Hz. Protection is provided by a new generation ultra-thin protective glass with a thickness of 0.03 mm.
The outdoor display is a 6.56-inch Samsung E5 AMOLED panel with Full HD+ resolution. The maximum frame rate here is also 120 Hz. Both screens support automatic color temperature adjustment based on lighting conditions.
Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 received stereo speakers. The battery capacity was 4500 mAh, it supports 67 W wired charging.
The smartphone, as befits a flagship, is built on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 single-chip platform, connected to LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 flash memory.
The main camera of the Mix Fold 2 was created in collaboration with Lecia. It is represented by three modules. It mainly uses a 50-megapixel Sony IMX766 sensor, a wide-angle lens and an optical stabilization system. There is also a module with a 13-megapixel sensor and an ultra-wide-angle lens with 15 mm EGF and a module with an 8-megapixel sensor and a telephoto lens. The front camera is 20 megapixel.
Interestingly, the MIUI skin for the Mix Fold 2 is called MIUI Fold 13, reflecting the work done by the developers to optimize apps and software features for the large indoor screen.
Pricing has already been announced: 12GB/256GB $1335, 12GB/512GB $1485, 12GB/1TB $1780. Thus, the Mix Fold 2 turned out to be much cheaper than the Galaxy Z Fold 4.
Camera module for half a smartphone. Tecno Phantom X2 camera block looks bigger than Xiaomi 12s Ultra
In the FCC database, the Tecno Phantom X2 smartphone was lit up, which, first of all, will impress with the dimensions of the main camera module.
As you can see in the drawing, the module will be huge. In terms of the size ratio of the module to the size of the smartphone itself, it is even larger than that of the Xiaomi 12s Ultra.
Of course, the dimensions of the module do not at all mean that the new Tecno will also have a large inch image sensor. Given what the company produces, this is unlikely.
As for other parameters, the FCC base says a 5040 mAh battery with 45-watt charging and Bluetooth 5.3.
Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra will be the first smartphone with telephoto sensor shift technology
According to GalaxyClub, Samsung has filed a patent application with the World Intellectual Property Organization for a new telephoto lens with sensor shift technology. The technology is expected to be used for the first time in the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra.
The patent describes a camera module including a lens, an image stabilization unit, and a movable member including an image sensor electrically coupled to the substrate. In this case, the image stabilization unit is connected to the lens. The image stabilization unit may be configured to move the movable element in at least one direction perpendicular to the optical axis, so that the optical axis is aligned with the predetermined position of the image sensor.
Apple first introduced sensor-shift image stabilization technology to the wide-angle module of the iPhone 12 Pro Max. The camera of this smartphone uses sensor shift to achieve better image stabilization and better photo quality.
In the iPhone 14 Pro/Max, Apple installed a 48-megapixel camera. However, some users experienced camera shake issues, which Apple fixed in iOS 16.0.2. Also, the iPhone 14 Pro/Max telephoto lens does not support this technology.
As previously reported, the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra may be the first smartphone to feature telephoto sensor shift technology. The main camera should have a resolution of 200 megapixels.
The iPhone 13 Pro Max destroyed the new iPhone 14 Pro Max in a real test. New items compared in terms of battery life
Mydrivers has released the battery life comparison results for iPhone 13 vs. iPhone 14, iPhone 13 Pro vs. iPhone 14 Pro, and iPhone 13 Pro Max vs. iPhone 14 Pro Max.
The tests were carried out at a temperature of 25 ° C, the brightness of the mobile phone screen was fixed at about 350 cd / m2the default volume was 50%, and the smartphones were connected to a Wi-Fi network.
After half an hour of testing in Douyin (analogue of Tiktok), the iPhone 14 Pro had 97% of the energy left, it consumed the most energy. The remaining models spent about 1-2%. This was followed by a half-hour Weibo test, 1080p video playback, and other tests. After two hours of continuous use, the iPhone 13 Pro Max was the only member with 90% battery. It was followed by the 14 Pro Max which came in second with 87%.
After another half hour of WeChat video calls, NetEase cloud music playback, and WeChat reading, the iPhone 14 Pro was the first to drop below 60%. The iPhone13 Pro Max had another 72%. After half an hour of recording 4K video and downloading the Genshin Impact installer, the iPhone 13 Pro Max had 50% left. The iPhone 13 Pro Max, which came in second, had 45%. In third place was the iPhone 13 with 35%. iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro saved only 27% each.
As a result, the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro dropped out almost simultaneously, and the final result was recorded at 6 hours and 47 minutes. The battery life of the iPhone 14 Pro has not changed significantly compared to its predecessor.
The iPhone 13 lasted a total of 7 hours and 16 minutes, while the iPhone 14 lasted 7 hours and 24 minutes. At that time, the remaining capacity of the iPhone 14 Pro Max was 15%, and the iPhone 13 Pro Max was 20%.
iPhone 14 Pro Max turned off after 8 hours 31 minutes. The iPhone 13 Pro Max lasted 9 hours and 3 minutes, that is, half an hour longer.
