OnePlus does not want to release Android updates for its smartphones for seven years. The company says it’s pointless

Recently, Android smartphone manufacturers have begun to offer longer and longer software support for their devices. OnePlus said it has no plans to do the same.

OnePlus does not want to release Android updates for its smartphones for seven years.  The company says it's pointless

More precisely, the company is not ready to support its smartphones by releasing Android updates for seven years, as Google and Samsung have already promised to do. But OnePlus has explained its position. The bottom line is that the company thinks it doesn’t make sense.

Simply offering longer software support makes no sense at all. Not only software update policies are important to the user, but also the ease of use of the phone.

Imagine your phone is a sandwich. Some manufacturers are now claiming that the core of their sandwich—the software on their phone—will still taste good seven years from now. But what they don’t tell you is that the bread in the sandwich—the user experience—might go moldy after four years. Suddenly the seven year software update policy doesn’t matter because the rest of your phone experience is terrible

Simply put, OnePlus believes that after seven years, the hardware characteristics of the smartphone will be too outdated to fully support all the new software features. And although no one provides seven years of support yet, the example of Apple, which has long provided five years of iOS updates, shows that there are often no special problems with this.

The head of OnePlus also notes that seven years is too long for the battery of any smartphone. That is, in order to use the device for seven years, you will definitely need to replace the battery at least once, or even twice, and this does not always make sense from a cost point of view.

Let us remind you that for its current flagship, OnePlus offers four years of Android updates, which is still more than many others.

Insider Ice Universe, who has almost all the flagships of the new generation, continues to make interesting photo comparisons. Thus, in several photographs he demonstrated the operation of the 60x zoom of the Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra and Xiaomi 14 Ultra.

The photo taken by the Korean flagship is not full of detail. The photo taken by Xiaomi 14 Ultra is already more detailed. But the photo taken using AI is the most detailed: you can see the tread pattern on the tire, corrosion spots on the wheel rim, and the texture of the road surface under the wheel.

Xiaomi do you give Leica cameras to all smartphones The

Insider Digital Chat Station revealed details about the future smartphone Xiaomi Civi 4 – this mid-level model this year (in the spring, approximately in May) will replace last year’s Civi 3. And, naturally, the characteristics will improve.

Xiaomi, do you give Leica cameras to all smartphones?  The mid-range Xiaomi Civi 4 will receive a Leica camera and 100W charging for the first time

According to the informant, Xiaomi Civi 4 will be built on the new SoC Qualcomm SM8635, which is also called Snapdragon 7 Plus Gen 3. According to preliminary data, its performance will be approximately at the level of Snapdragon 8 Gen 2. And this will already be a serious bid for leadership in the sub-flagship segment , where MediaTek still rules the roost.

Xiaomi Civi 4 is credited with a flat screen with a resolution of 1.5K and “micro-curved” glass 2.7D, a Leica camera with a 50-megapixel sensor (Civi 4 will be the first non-numbered Xiaomi smartphone with a Leica camera), a 5000 mAh battery with charging support 100 W power, metal frame and glass back panel.

Previously, Digital Chat Station was the first to accurately report the specifications and release dates of Redmi K50 and Xiaomi 12.

The most powerful smartphones in February 2024 according to AnTuTu

The developers of the AnTuTu benchmark have published a new rating of the most powerful smartphones – for February of this year. Despite the fact that most of the models in the list (six out of ten) are built on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 SoC, the top model on the MediaTek Dimensity 9300 SoC is the Oppo Find X7 with 16 GB of RAM and 1 TB of flash memory.

The other two models from the top 3 are based on the Qualcomm single-chip platform – the Asus ROG Phone 8 Pro with 16 GB of RAM and 512 GB of flash memory, as well as the iQOO 12 with the same amounts of memory.

As the compilers of the rating note, there is not a single Xiaomi smartphone in it, and this is to some extent a surprise, since previously the devices of this company (Xiaomi or Redmi) were almost always included in the top 10 most powerful. The explanation for this may lie in the fact that so far HyperOS, installed on the current flagships of the Xiaomi 14 line, cannot boast the same agility as MIUI.
