Yesterday, Vivo introduced its flagship camera phone Vivo X90 Pro +, and today Honor introduced its top-end mid-budget camera phone – Honor 80 Pro. He turned out to be interesting in many ways.
Honor 80 Pro is the manufacturer’s first smartphone with the latest MagicOS 7.0 firmware. However, the same can be said about other representatives of the line.
The highlight of the Honor 80 Pro’s camera is the latest 160-megapixel sensor, which can combine pixels in groups of 4 or 16 to capture more light. Accordingly, in the first case, the image resolution will be 40 megapixels, in the second – 10 megapixels. There is no optical stabilization in the main module, and as for the lens, its aperture is F / 1.8.
The second most important sensor is a 50-megapixel one. It is simultaneously used for macro shooting (focusing distance – from 2.5 cm), and for creating ultra-wide photos. The third sensor is 2 megapixel.
During the story about the camera, the capabilities of the Honor 80 Pro were actively compared with the result of the camera of the iPhone 14. Naturally, the pictures from the Honor phone look more advantageous (at least on the slides of the official presentation), and not least due to Super RAW HDR 2.0 technology.
The front camera, located in the central cutout, has two sensors – with a resolution of 50 and 2 megapixels.
Honor 80 Pro received a curved AMOLED screen with a resolution of 1.5K (2700 x 1224 pixels), a frame rate of 120 Hz and a PWM frequency of 1920 MHz.
Honor 80 Pro belongs to the middle level rather conditionally, since the smartphone is based on the flagship Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 single-chip system. base was not on sale. So the flagship status of Honor 80 Pro is much more suitable.
Judging by the slides of the official presentation, the company did a good job of optimizing the SoC: consumption and heating are reduced relative to other models on the Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1, and autonomy is increased.
The creators endowed the Honor 80 Pro with a 4800 mAh battery with support for 66 W fast charging. There is no mention of wireless charging support. Most likely she doesn’t. With a battery of such a decent capacity, the mass of the phone is small – 188 grams, the same can be said about the thickness – it was 7.8 mm.
The world’s first smartphone in Pantone Color of the Year 2023. Motorola Edge 30 Fusion Viva Magenta unveiled
Motorola decided to be in trend and introduced the Edge 30 Fusion smartphone in Viva Magenta color.
Viva Magenta has been named Pantone’s Color of the Year 2023. The company’s specialists explained their choice by the fact that it is “an unusual red for an unusual time.”
It is worth noting that the Viva Magenta color has never been seen in smartphones before. Motorola’s novelty in this color, unfortunately, will be exclusive to the US market, but the company may well release its new flagship in the same color. It is also worth noting that the specified version of the smartphone will come with Moto Buds 600 ANC TWS headphones. True, the headphones will be of a different color, but even here Motorola decided to approach the issue from an unusual angle. The fact is that the headphones will be painted in Winetasting color, which was chosen by Pantone as an addition to Viva Magenta.
The Edge 30 Fusion Viva Magenta will be released in the US for $800. Technically, the smartphone does not differ from the original version, that is, it offers a Snapdragon 888 Plus, a 50-megapixel main camera, 68-watt charging and a 144-Hz screen.
Lost in Alaska: iPhone 14’s ‘satellite SOS’ feature helped save a man
Recently, the Alaska State Police received a message about a man stuck in the snow between the cities of Nurvik and Kotzebue. This is a remote area above the Arctic Circle where there is no cell service, so the man had to activate the emergency satellite service on his iPhone 14 to call for help. The Apple Emergency Response Center, along with local search and rescue teams and the US Arctic Northwest Rescue Coordinator, sent volunteer searchers to GPS coordinates transmitted by a smartphone. Rescuers arrived at the scene and successfully helped the stranded man, fortunately he was not injured.
It is worth noting that Apple honestly warns users about possible failures in the operation of satellite communications in some places above the 62nd parallel of the north latitude. Nurvik and Kotzebue are already closer to the 69th parallel of the northern latitude, but nevertheless, the “satellite SOS” worked perfectly: the rescuers were impressed by the accuracy and completeness of the information provided. Recall that an emergency message via satellite on the iPhone 14 includes not only coordinates, but also a small questionnaire, by filling out which the victim can briefly report what happened and what help he needs. This makes it easier for the rescue services. In mid-November, the function started working in the US and Canada, it will be available for free for two years, Apple has not yet announced anything about its cost in the future. The service should be launched in some European countries soon.
Future Samsung smartphones will be 2.5 billion times safer than current smartphones thanks to a new fingerprint scanner
Samsung is working to ensure that in the near future its smartphones will be equipped with under-screen fingerprint scanners that can scan three fingerprints at once.
This is useful for enhancing protection. According to Samsung itself, this solution is 2.5 billion times safer than using a single fingerprint. In addition, Samsung’s new screens will be able to scan fingerprints across their entire area, which will make the use of such scanners simply more convenient.
ISORG has announced that its own OPD (Organic Photo Diode) multi-fingerprint scanning technology is ready. The company believes that Samsung is likely to use similar materials and processes for its OLED 2.0 all-in-one fingerprint scanner.
The head of ISORG believes that Samsung can release relevant products as early as 2025. That is, perhaps such scanners will receive the flagship smartphones of the Galaxy S25 line.
