Huawei officially unveiled its new foldable smartphone in China today, and it’s drastically different from most models on the market. The screen in this model does not fold inward, but unfolds outward. It’s like Xiaomi Mix Alpha with wraparound display, only foldable.
A different layout made it possible to abandon the second display and make the smartphone more compact. The thickness of the main part in the unfolded state is only 5.4 mm, the weight of the smartphone is 255 grams. At the same time, exceptionally strong materials are used in the design – titanium alloy used in the aerospace industry, ultra-light carbon fiber, ultra-light and ultra-strong steels.
The highlight of the Mate Xs 2 is, of course, the screen. The flexible OLED panel is characterized by a diagonal of 7.8 inches, a resolution of 2480 x 2200 pixels and a frame rate of 120 Hz. The display is coated with an “anti-reflective nano-optical coating”.
Judging by the official pictures, the screen is completely devoid of folds, which the same Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 cannot boast of.
The hardware platform of the Mate Xs 2 is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 SoC without 5G connectivity. This suggests that the Mate Xs 2 will potentially be sold outside of China as well. RAM – LPDDR5, flash memory – UFS 3.1.
The main camera is represented by sensors with a resolution of 50, 13 and 8 megapixels. The last module is responsible for shooting with 8x optical zoom. The battery capacity in the basic version is 4600 mAh, in the top version it is 4880 mAh, in both cases 66 W charging is supported.
The base version of the Mate Xs 2 has 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of flash memory. The price is 1510 dollars. The 8GB RAM and 512GB storage variant is priced at $1,740. Finally, the top version of the Collector’s Edition with 12 GB of RAM, 512 GB of flash memory and an extended battery costs $1965.
“Born to accelerate the popularization of 5G.” Xiaomi introduced a cheap smartphone Redmi Note 11 SE with 90 Hz, 5000 mAh and 48 MP
The head of Xiaomi, Lei Jun, officially announced the company’s most affordable smartphone with support for fifth-generation networks, which was called the Redmi Note 11 SE.
“Born to accelerate the popularization of 5G,” is how the company leader describes this device. The Redmi Note 11 SE is priced at just $150.
Redmi Note 11 SE received a 6.5-inch FullHD + display with support for a refresh rate of 90 Hz and a hole for the front camera in the central upper part of the screen. It is based on a MediTek Dimensity 700 single-chip system with a 5G modem.
The amount of flash memory is 128 GB, the battery capacity is 5000 mAh, the main image sensor has a resolution of 48 megapixels.
Even more like the iPhone: Apple Watch Series 8 showed from all sides in high-quality images
Apple is expected to launch three smartwatch models this fall, including the Apple Watch Series 8, Apple Watch SE, and the first rugged watch. This post provides high-quality renderings of the Apple Watch Series 8 based on leaks and available information.
The biggest difference compared to the Apple Watch Series 7 is that the screen protector is completely flat. This makes the watch case look more like an iPhone case. You can also see that the screen frame has become even smaller. It is quite possible that the Apple Watch Series 8 will be the watch with the highest effective display area.
Enlarged slots for the speaker are visible on the left side of the case, the usual clock controls are located on the right side. The watch will be able to measure heart rate and blood oxygen saturation. As for measuring temperature, blood sugar and blood pressure, Apple is working on these features, but they are unlikely to appear this year.
According to rumors, the presentation of the Apple Watch Series 8 will take place in September this year.
Source: iPhone 14 will get a front camera with autofocus
According to South Korean sources, one of the major improvements in the iPhone 14 line of smartphones, which is expected to be released in September, will be the front camera. Apple considers LG Innotek as a supplier of such high-end modules. In this case, for the first time, the supplier of the front cameras for the iPhone will be a Korean company, and not the unnamed Chinese manufacturers, as before. According to the source, Apple has reconsidered the attitude to the front cameras of its smartphones as inexpensive components, and now these will be more advanced solutions.
Initially, Apple planned to start installing LG Innotek modules only in the iPhone 15, but then moved the deadlines, so the iPhone 14 will already have a high-quality front camera this fall. It is reported that the new module will be three times more expensive than the previous model, but the owners of the next generation iPhone will be able to use autofocus for selfies. A number of other improvements are also expected, thanks to which the front camera of the new iPhones will come close to the main one in terms of its capabilities. According to rumors, LG Innotek has already begun preparations for mass production of front cameras for the iPhone 14.
