According to experts, Starlink still has problems due to the insufficient bandwidth of some satellites, which can negatively affect coverage in large aircraft. But the company assures that it is necessary to take into account the speed of development of the Starlink network.

SpaceX also said that the advantages of their network are the rapid passage of signals and the small size of the antennas compared to other similar services. This will allow the installation of such antennas in small aircraft. At the same time, the operator claims that it already has an agreement with Hawaiian Airlines to service Airbus and Boeing aircraft.

For comparison, in the current Airbus of American Airlines, the speed reaches a maximum of 2.2 Mbps. Viasat equipment is used there, there are more than a hundred passengers on board. In total, today about 10 thousand commercial aircraft have Wi-Fi systems on board, by 2031 their number will exceed 36 thousand.

Earlier it was reported that Starlink plans to install its terminals on ships, trains, trucks and so on.

Camera module for half a smartphone Tecno Phantom X2 camera

In the FCC database, the Tecno Phantom X2 smartphone was lit up, which, first of all, will impress with the dimensions of the main camera module.

As you can see in the drawing, the module will be huge. In terms of the size ratio of the module to the size of the smartphone itself, it is even larger than that of the Xiaomi 12s Ultra.

Of course, the dimensions of the module do not at all mean that the new Tecno will also have a large inch image sensor. Given what the company produces, this is unlikely.

As for other parameters, the FCC base says a 5040 mAh battery with 45-watt charging and Bluetooth 5.3.

Perhaps the most interesting thing here is the execution of the main camera with “island” (as if separate) modules. The Galaxy S23/S23+ should get the same external camera. But there will be no embedded camera on the screen: the Galaxy A14 will receive an Infinity-U display with a drop-shaped front camera. But the screen itself will become larger – the diagonal will be 6.8 inches.

To start with, the Moto G72 will not support 5G networks, while the Moto G71 does. Or, perhaps there will be a separate version of the Moto G72 5G, but we don’t know anything about it yet.

As a result, if the Moto G71 relied on the Snapdragon 695, then the G72 will receive the MediaTek Helio G99. And the first not only stands out with 5G support, but it is simply faster. But Moto G72 may be cheaper, but there is no data yet.
