Apple changes strategy: all efforts are thrown on the iPhone 14 Pro Max

Published

on

Apple is due to present the new iPhone 14 smartphones on September 7, a day after the Huawei Mate 50 series was shown. Four models are expected in the new line, including two Pro versions.

For many years, the standard version of the iPhone was the most popular, but recently the situation has changed and Apple has relied on more expensive and better equipped versions. With the release of the iPhone 13, there has been evidence that users are increasingly preferring the Pro models. Therefore, this time all efforts are thrown at the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.

Ross Young, founder of research companies Display Supply Chain Consultants and DisplaySearch, who is rarely wrong in his forecasts, claims that most of the shipments of screen panels in the June-September quarter were specifically for the iPhone 14 Pro Max. To be more precise, the source says that 29% of the smartphones in the iPhone 14 launch batch are the iPhone 14 Pro Max.

The source confirms that Apple is absolutely confident in the success of this model. The iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will ditch the notch for the first time in five years and get two small screen cutouts. They will also get a new 48 megapixel camera and the latest Apple A16 single-chip system.

Yesterday, the source, who shared his first impressions of using the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max, supplemented his review with new data.

Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman claims that Apple will be bringing the iPhone 14 line in front of real people at the Steve Jobs Theater, something that hasn’t happened since the iPhone 11.

Goodbye 100 MP. Redmi K60 smartphones will receive a 50-megapixel sensor as part of the main camera

Goodbye 100 MP Redmi K60 smartphones will receive a 50

An insider, known on the Web under the nickname Digital Chat Station, published details about the camera of Redmi K60 smartphones. According to the leaker, the devices in the series will “upgrade” to a 50-megapixel sensor. It sounds like a downgrade in words, but in fact, the 50-megapixel sensor should provide higher quality photos and videos compared to the current 100-megapixel sensors.

The 100-megapixel sensor used in Redmi K50 Pro will be a thing of the past

What kind of sensor in question is not reported. Possible options are Sony IMX766 or Sony IMX707. The first is used in Xiaomi 12 (and in many other flagships of the current year), the second is used in Xiaomi 12 Pro. At the same time, this may be the only innovation of the Redmi K60 camera: the rest of the low-resolution sensors (8 and 2 megapixels) will remain, and there will most likely be no telephoto lens.

Digital Chat Station was previously the first to accurately announce the specifications and release dates of Redmi K30, K40, Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 11.

How much gold can you get from 200 smartphones? Chinese blogger conducted an experiment

How much gold can you get from 200 smartphones Chinese

Chinese Weibo user Chef Alchemist purchased 210 smartphone circuit boards to find out how much gold can be extracted from them. As it turned out, the cost of consumables for the experiment significantly exceeds the benefits that can be obtained as a result.

To extract the gold from the circuit boards, Chef Alchemist performed several lengthy chemical reactions. At the exit, the enthusiast got only 0.41 grams of gold. The cost of such a “pea” of precious metal is about $30 on the market. At the same time, the purchase of boards alone cost Chef Alchemist $315.

Although extracting gold from chips is completely unprofitable in artisanal conditions, My Drivers notes that, on the scale of a well-established enterprise, recycling electronic waste can be very profitable. So, according to Chinese journalists, out of 1 million cards from mobile phones, you can get about 16 tons of copper, 350 kg of silver, 34 kg of gold and 15 kg of the more expensive metal palladium.

This is what the hit Mate 50 Pro looks like

This week, sales of Huawei Mate 50 series phones started in China, and they were instantly sold out – both online and in regular retail stores (Huawei even came up with an original way to deal with the resale of phones). The most popular versions are Mate 50 RS Porsche Design and Mate 50 Pro, and just the latter poses below in the “dismantling” photo.

It turned out that the internals of the Mate 50, if you do not touch the camera unit, corresponds to the structure of the Mate 40 – as if these models were not separated by two years. The model is also disassembled in the usual sequence: it all starts with heating the rear panel.

Double-sided motherboard, clearly visible covers over the components

The motherboard is still double-sided, but, interestingly, most of the components on it are covered with metal covers. The Mate 50 itself does not support 5G, but there was a place for a 5G chip inside – with the entire component base soldered. On the one hand, this does not mean anything: Qualcomm could simply remove the corresponding modem from the board, and leave the strapping in place in order to save money. On the other hand, it is possible that the Mate 50 can still get a built-in 5G modem (the board already has everything for this), although the chances of this are small.

The source does not give a verdict on how difficult or easy it is to disassemble a smartphone, but, apparently, the Mate 50 Pro is no more difficult to repair than the Mate 40 Pro.
