Apple’s last quarter was the first quarter in years that the company recorded a year-on-year decline in revenue and profit. However, Apple still earns the most in the smartphone market, and 2022 was a record year for it. According to Counterpoint, 85% of all profits in the smartphone market came from Apple.

85% of all profits in the smartphone market came from Apple, and this is a new record

First, it means that Apple made more money than everyone else combined. Secondly, this is a record figure for the company. But that’s not all. At the end of last year, Apple also accounted for 48% of all revenue in the smartphone market, and this is also a record value for the company. And even in terms of deliveries, the Cupertino giant set its own record, taking 18% of the entire market.

As you can see from the graphs, shipments as a percentage have not changed much since at least 2015, but Apple’s profit and revenue in recent years relative to the market as a whole have grown significantly. That is, the average selling price of a smartphone from a company is growing.

In total, about 1.2 billion smartphones were sold in the world last year, which corresponds to a fall of 12%. And this is the lowest figure in almost 10 years.

Smartphone revenue fell 9% to $409 billion. This is the lowest figure since 2017. The increase in the average selling price of a smartphone last year was 5%. Given the statistics, probably thanks to Apple.

Advanced XMAGE camera IP68 protection heavy duty Kunlun glass Huawei P60

Huawei today introduced its new flagships P60 and P60 Pro. The novelties turned out to be very interesting – in many ways they differ from the flagships of other companies.

The Huawei P60 features a 6.67-inch 4-sided OLED screen with a resolution of 2700 x 1200 pixels, a frame rate of 120Hz and a PWM frequency of 1440Hz. Interestingly, the Huawei P60 Pro has exactly the same display. As a result, the dimensions of both flagships are exactly the same, the difference is only in weight: the Pro version is several grams heavier. The screen is protected by ultra-strong Kunlun glass. And the phones are protected from external influences in accordance with the degree of IP68.

The cameras of the P60 and P60 Pro differ in that Huawei did not pursue megapixels – the maximum resolution (of the main sensor) is only 48 megapixels. This approach strongly resembles Apple’s approach to designing iPhone cameras.

The Huawei P60 camera is represented by three modules. The main one has a 48-megapixel sensor with an RYYB pixel layout, an F / 1.4-4.0 variable aperture lens and an optical stabilization system. The ultra wide-angle module has a 13-megapixel (RYYB) sensor and an F/2.2 lens, but no optical stabilization. Finally, the third module is responsible for 5x optical zoom, it uses a 12-megapixel sensor (RYYB) and has optical stabilization.

The first two modules of the Huawei P60 Pro are exactly the same as those of the younger model, but the module responsible for the optical zoom is different. Firstly, the resolution is higher – as much as 48 megapixels (apparently, exactly the same sensor is used here as in the main module), and secondly, there is just a huge aperture for the periscope module – F / 2.1. Therefore, pictures taken with optical zoom look as bright and saturated as pictures taken with the main camera.

This is how examples of photos taken with the Huawei P60 camera look like:

The parameters of the power subsystem for Huawei P60 and P60 Pro are the same: the phones received batteries with a capacity of 4815 mAh, support 88 W wired charging and 50 W wireless power.

The difference from the Galaxy S23 is that the P60 and P60 Pro come with an appropriate power supply, and with two ports at once: USB-A and USB-C.

Huawei P60 and P60 Pro became the first phones from the manufacturer with HarmonyOS 3.1 out of the box. And they are the first in the world to support two-way satellite communications: using the Chinese Beidou satellite system, you can not only send messages, but also receive them. In fact, satellite communication is already a real alternative to cellular, although there are still restrictions on sending messages and calls using satellite.
