Apple planned at one time to transfer the iPhone to the solid-state memory of the Chinese company YMTC, but geopolitical changes thwarted these plans. According to specialized resources, now smartphones will use the memory of the South Korean Samsung Electronics. These memory modules will appear in smartphones from Cupertino in 2023.
There have been interactions between the two companies in the past. Samsung produced displays and even SoCs for Apple, but now the dependence of the American corporation on South Korea will only grow. It is possible that companies will be able to negotiate and reduce prices for memory, which will affect the cost of smartphones.
With regards to YMTC, the Chinese memory manufacturer may have problems. US sanctions imposed in October ban the supply to China of equipment with US-origin technologies for the production of memory chips with a manufacturing process of less than 18 nm. And YMTC was just getting ready to start manufacturing such flash memory with 128 layers.
The Chinese company CXMT specializes in the production of RAM chips and has similar problems. It is possible that manufacturers of memory modules that use CXMT products will have to look for new suppliers.
Oppo Find N2 Flip is the first clamshell smartphone without a screen wrinkle, according to published live photos.
On December 15, Oppo will officially unveil its new foldable smartphones, but photos of the Oppo Find N2 Flip clamshell phone have already been published online. And, judging by them, there is no crease on the screen at all.
One of the pictures was published by Ice Universe insider. He accompanied the picture below with the words: “Where is the crease? Where’s she? Where’s she?”. Indeed, visually the fold is not observed. If so, then Oppo has managed to do what Samsung has been unable to do for four years.
However, the lack of a crease isn’t the only feature of the Find N2 Flip. The device will receive the largest external screen for devices in its class – its diagonal will be 3.26 inches. And in this regard, the Find N2 Flip will outperform both the Moto RAZR 2022 and the Galaxy Z Flip4.
In addition, the Oppo Find N2 Flip will prove to be a powerful smartphone, as the Dimensity 9000 SoC is rumored to be attributed to it. Finally (again, according to rumors), the Oppo Find N2 Flip will not repeat its predecessor’s Chinese exclusive status and will be sold outside of China.
