A recent report from Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) proves that the iPhone 13 line is in high demand.
According to analysts, in the first quarter of this year, Apple’s current line of smartphones in the US accounted for 71% of all iPhone sales. For comparison, a year earlier, the iPhone 12 line accounted for 61% of all sales, that is, there is a significant increase.
In addition, the iPhone 13 managed to repeat the success of the iPhone 11, becoming the best-selling device, while being a model of the current line. Often, Apple’s best-selling model remains the base model of the previous generation for most of the year.
As a result, only the iPhone 13 accounted for more sales than all other Apple smartphones outside the current line combined. The model became a clear bestseller, taking 38% of all iPhone sales.
It can also be noted that the sales of the iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max were approximately equal, while the iPhone 13 mini accounted for only a few percent. Of the older models, the iPhone 11 and iPhone 12 are still selling well.
Analysts also noted an interesting trend towards a decrease in the life of a smartphone in the hands of the first buyer. If in past years there was a clearly noticeable trend towards an increase in the terms of using smartphones by users, now, as can be seen from the diagram, iPhone owners, for some reason, have begun to change their devices more actively.
Will PlayStation have fewer exclusives? Sony plans to release half of its PlayStation Studios games on PC and smartphones
Sony has outlined its immediate plans for the game for PC and mobile platforms.
CEO Jim Ryan said that Sony plans to have half of the games created by its internal studios in fiscal year 2025, including on PC and smartphones.
That is, only 50% of the games will remain exclusive, while the rest will be available to a much larger number of gamers. This is similar to Phil Spencer’s position on the Xbox.
From the chart, you can see that the share of PCs will still be higher than the share of smartphones, which should please gamers who prefer large single-player games. The share of Sony games on smartphones is now about 10%, and in three years it should double. In the case of the PC, there is no exact data, but the share of such projects will not grow so significantly.
Most likely, the big story games for the most part, as now, will be released only on the PlayStation, and will migrate to the PC years later. What kind of games will be released on PC and smartphones? Judging by Ryan’s statement, including game-services. It turns out that Sony is now working on 12 such projects at once. According to the head of PlayStation, if at least some of these projects become successful, it will greatly transform the company’s business structure.
Historically, PlayStation Studios has done an excellent job of building a vast portfolio of single-player games with rich storytelling and beautiful graphics, but we’ve certainly limited ourselves to a fairly narrow section of the gaming market.
By expanding into PCs and mobile devices, and, it must be said, into online services, we have the opportunity to move from a very narrow segment of the overall gaming software market to a presence almost everywhere.
For example, I would say that if we manage to make some of the 12 service games that we develop at PlayStation Studios… if only some of them are commercially successful, then the impact of this will completely transform our business structure over time.
Given the success of Sony games on PC, it’s no surprise that the share of such games will continue to grow. As for the mobile segment, it has long occupied more than half of the entire gaming industry in terms of money. By the way, we recall that the first of the PlayStation 5 exclusives may soon be released on the PC.
When a smartphone with 4G has three times more powerful charging at a significantly lower price. Oppo A57 4G presented
Oppo introduced the A57 4G smartphone. To recall, the A57 5G version debuted in April with a price tag of $235.
The new version costs $ 160, of course, in many respects inferior to the older one, but not in everything. For example, the same battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh is installed here, only the older version has a 10-watt charge, while the younger one has a very decent 33-watt charge for this segment.
In almost all other respects, smartphones are identical, except that the new version has a screen with support for only 60 Hz. At the same time, this is the same IPS panel with a diagonal of 6.56 inches with HD + resolution.
The smartphone has the same 13 MP camera, the same design, the same Android 12 out of the box. Another difference is that the $235 A57 5G offers 8GB of RAM and 128GB of flash, while the A57 4G only has 3GB of RAM and 64GB of flash.
Samsung unveils the Galaxy M23 5G smartphone with a price tag of over $400, but don’t worry about the price
Samsung quietly launched another smartphone on the market – the Galaxy M23 5G.
So far, the novelty is presented only in Brazil, so its price of $ 415 should not scare potential buyers in other countries. Due to the nature of taxation in Brazil, electronics are very expensive there. For example, the Galaxy S22 Ultra costs over $1,800 there.
Thus, we are now most interested in the parameters. In particular, the Snapdragon 750G platform is at the core, which will delight fans of Qualcomm’s SoCs.
Also, the device received 6 GB of RAM, the company does not disclose the amount of flash memory. The novelty offers a 120-Hz display with a diagonal of 6.6 inches, a main camera with a resolution of 50 megapixels and a 5000 mAh battery with 25-watt charging. As a result, the Galaxy M23 5G is very similar to the Galaxy A23, but the novelty has 5G support, a slightly more productive platform and a higher screen frequency.
