Apple ditches iPhone’s Lightning connector, but not USB-C

Published

on

Tianfeng International analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said in his forecast for future iPhones that rumors of a USB-C connector in Apple phones are not destined to come true.

Over the past few years, most Android smartphones have switched to USB-C, while iPhones have long used the proprietary Lightning connector. It has long been rumored that the iPhone will also switch to USB-C, but Ming-Chi Kuo doesn’t think so.

Analysts say the USB-C interface does not contribute to the profitability of the Apple MFi-accessories project, and the water resistance of a smartphone with such a connector will be lower than that of Lightning. Therefore, if Apple ditches the Lightning connector in its smartphones in the future, it is definitely not in favor of USB-C. Ming-Chi Kuo believes the company could switch to MagSafe magnetic charging entirely.

However, he added that in the coming years, the iPhone will still stick to the Lightning interface, as MagSafe technology is far from perfect. The analyst also believes that this year the iPhone 13 will not receive a fingerprint sensor.

The same person stated that the third generation iPhone SE will not receive a new design and / or a larger screen. The novelty will target fans of this line and will receive the same 4.7-inch display. The biggest changes will be the updated SoC and support for fifth generation networks.

In general, four models are expected in the series: Mate 50e, Mate 50, Mate 50 Pro and Mate 50 RS. They will receive curved screens from local (Chinese) manufacturers and the recently introduced HarmonyOS 3.0. The younger model is credited with SoC Snapdragon 778G, all the rest – Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 without 5G support. However, some sources also talk about the use of Snapdragon 888 (also in the version with an LTE modem), so not everything is clear here yet.

Will there be more 200 megapixel cameras in smartphones OmniVision

There may be more smartphones with 200-megapixel sensors in the near future, and we are probably talking not only about expensive devices. OmniVision has introduced its second sensor of this class.

Will there be more 200 megapixel cameras in smartphones?  OmniVision OVB0A sensor introduced

The OVB0A sensor has an optical format of 1/1.395″ or 1/1.4″ for simplicity. That is, it is quite large, but smaller than the same Samsung ISOCELL HP1, while it is exactly the same as ISOCELL HP3. The pixel size is 0.56 µm.

The sensor supports 16-cell binning, so that photos are obtained with a resolution of 12.5 megapixels. Video can be shot in 4K at 120 fps, 8K at 30 fps is also supported. The sensor should appear in smartphones in the fourth quarter.

OVB0A is OmniVision’s second 200MP sensor. The first was OVB0B in a larger optical format. It was introduced back in January, but in the end it did not appear in any smartphone. So, if OVB0A does not repeat the fate of the firstborn, then it will just become the first available on the market.

Autonomy at the level of iPhone 13 Pro Max for

DxOMark specialists got to the Honor X7 smartphone, but not to evaluate the camera, but to test the power subsystem.

Autonomy at the level of iPhone 13 Pro Max for only 250 euros.  DxOMark tested Honor X7

Recall that the smartphone is equipped with a standard battery today with a capacity of 5000 mAh and not the most outstanding charging power of 22.5 watts.

At the same time, thanks to the screen with a low resolution and SoC Snapdragon 680, the device showed a very decent autonomy, having lasted 2 days and 17 hours in the source tests. For comparison, the iPhone 13 Pro Max showed a result of 2 days and 20 hours, that is, with a price difference of about four times, the autonomy of smartphones is very close.

The charging parameters are also close. From 0 to 80%, the smartphone charges in 1 hour and 5 minutes, and it takes 2 hours and 31 minutes to fully charge. The flagship of Apple is 1 hour 1 minute and 2 hours 11 minutes, respectively. True, the iPhone 13 Pro Max was eventually rated at 89 points, and the Honor smartphone received only 74 points, which puts it in 40th place in the overall ranking. The reason is that in a number of subtests, the Apple device is a cut above. For example, when playing music, it lasted almost 62 hours versus less than 29 hours for the Honor X7. But in games, the latter is better: 9 hours and 44 minutes versus 8 hours and 52 minutes.
