iPhone 14 Pro: not two cutouts, but one? Not certainly in that way

Published

9to5mac and Macrumors have posted interesting details about the new iPhone 14 Pro notches and how they will play into the interface. This has not been previously reported, but the source claims that the two new cutouts will look like one seamless cutout when the smartphone is running.

A source familiar with Apple’s plans said the space between the two notches will be used to display privacy indicators for the microphone and camera. This change will also help with the redesign of the Camera app itself.

Pill-shaped cutouts and holes on the iPhone 14 Pro display will be covered by software. Apple will essentially darken the area between the two notches. According to Bloomberg, this will create the illusion that it is “one wide tablet-shaped cutout.”

Apple currently places a very small orange dot in the top right corner of the display when an app is using your iPhone’s microphone. The green dot appears when an app is using your iPhone’s camera. In the iPhone 14 Pro, Apple will move these indicators and make them more visible.

The “dead space” between the two display notches on the iPhone 14 Pro will be used to display these green and yellow privacy indicators. Apple’s goal, according to our source, is to make the user experience more like a MacBook, which has an always-visible green LED when the camera is in use.

This will also allow Apple to display green and orange dots at the same time when the camera and microphone are in use. Apple currently only shows a green dot even when the app is accessing the camera and microphone.

Additionally, Apple is currently planning to allow users to tap on these indicators to see a clear list of apps that use (and may have recently used) the microphone and camera.

Finally, a 9to5Mac source adds that Apple is also planning a redesign of the Camera app, which will move most of the controls to the top of the screen.

Controls such as the flash button and Live Photo button are now located in the status bar, while more detailed photo and video settings are located directly below the display cutouts. This change will give users a wider view of the camera preview by sliding the controls up and moving some of them to the status bar.

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.
