Following the Vivo X90, the top model of this line, the Vivo X90 Pro +, debuted. If in the first case we immediately talked about a single-chip system, then during the announcement of the X90 Pro +, attention was focused on the most important thing – the camera.
And no wonder: Vivo X90 Pro + may well be among the best camera phones according to DxOMark, for this it has everything you need. The main image sensor is a Sony IMX989 optical format 1 inch. It is complemented by Zeiss optics, consisting of eight elements (one of these elements is glass, while most smartphones use only plastic elements), as well as an optical image stabilization system. The lens aperture of the main module is F / 1.75.
No less remarkable is the periscope module with a 64-megapixel OmniVision OV64B sensor. There is also optical stabilization, and the maximum zoom (hybrid – optical and digital together) is 100X. And he is able to work wonders, judging by the test pictures published below.
For the first time ever, the 50-megapixel Sony IMX758 sensor debuted in the X90 Pro+. Its optical format is 1/2.51 inches, the lens is portrait, with a focal length of 50 mm. And here, too, there is optical stabilization.
The only module that does not have OIS is with an ultra wide-angle lens and a 48-megapixel Sony IMX598 sensor. The camera also has a laser autofocus assistant.
As in the base Vivo X90, the main single-chip system (in this case, the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2) is supplemented by Vivo’s proprietary V2 chip. In terms of memory, the Vivo X90 Pro + uses LPDDR5X and UFS 4.0. In order to ensure adequate cooling of both chips, Vivo has provided a huge cooling system with a vapor chamber consisting of two halves and with a total area of 8900 mm.2.
The first phone with a Samsung E6 screen was not Xiaomi 13, and even more so it will not be the Galaxy S23 – it was the Vivo X90 Pro +. The display is produced using LTPO 4.0 technology, the resolution is 2K, the peak brightness is 1800 cd / sq.m., the PWM frequency is 1440 Hz (and in terms of the latter parameter, the screen is inferior to the BOE display in Vivo X90). The screen diagonal is 6.78 inches. The front camera embedded in it is with a 32-megapixel Samsung S5KGD2 sensor.
Vivo X90 Pro + received a 4700 mAh battery with support for 80 W wired charging and 50 W wireless power. The thickness of the body of the device was 9.7 mm, weight – decent 221 grams. The configuration of the device, in addition to all of the above, includes an NFC chip, an IR emitter, stereo speakers, IP68 protection and Android 13 with the OriginOS 3 interface.
The most interesting thing is that the prices for such a device are quite low: the basic version with 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of flash memory is priced at $910, the top version with 12 GB of RAM and 512 GB of flash memory costs $980. But these prices are for China, and in Europe the novelty will be noticeably more expensive.
Enthusiast replaced the numeric keypad with a disk from an old phone
It would seem that it is almost impossible to change such a thing as a keyboard in any original way. However, the user under the nickname Squidgeefish succeeded. He added a real disk from an old wired telephone to a regular keyboard and made it all work.
The disk is placed on the right and performs the functions of a digital block – only numbers need to be entered by turning the dialer. And here a problem arises – such a system is analog, and any modern keyboard is digital. The enthusiast was able to connect the drive from the phone using the DFRobot Beetle Board based on the ATmega32U4 chip. This board is able to work with analog signals and at the same time supports a standard USB port.
I also had to experiment with the keyboard itself, because I had to cut the printed circuit board. And for aesthetics, the enthusiast added 3D-printed makers. The result is a rather strange and quirky, but fully functional keyboard. According to the source, the cost of the project was no more than $30.
At the same time, using the disk, you can enter not only numbers, but also special characters, such as the percent sign, brackets, and so on. And instead of the standard digital buttons, the enthusiast put a stub.
All leaders will lose, but Apple will strengthen. TrendForce published a forecast for the smartphone market
According to TrendForce analysts, in the third quarter of this year, the smartphone market sank by 11%, to 289 million units.
The market leaders were Samsung, Apple, Xiaomi, Oppo and Vivo, but the current quarter will temporarily change the balance of power. According to analysts, Apple will increase its share from 17.6% to 24.6%, overtaking Samsung, which will occupy 20.2% against the current 22.2%. This is not the first time that Apple has become a market leader in the fourth quarter, which is explained by the release of a new generation of iPhone.
At the same time, it can be seen that the source predicts a decrease in market share for all leaders, except for Apple. It is worth noting that in this case, the source considers the sales of Oppo as sales including Realme, which is not typical. It also counts OnePlus sales, but that’s normal after a merger.
