OSD semiconductor sales are growing rapidly, according to IC Insights



Specialists of the analytical company IC Insights prepared a forecast related to the market of semiconductor products of the OSD category (optoelectronic devices, sensors and discrete devices). Recall that this is one of two segments of the semiconductor market. The second is integrated circuits. OSD accounts for 18% of all sales, ICs – 82%.

According to IC Insights, this year OSD sales will grow by 18% over last year. An 11% growth is projected for 2022. Thus, the slowdown in growth last year caused by the pandemic has been left behind. Analysts point out that this year’s growth is due not only to a resurgence in consumer demand in many recovering markets, but also to a significant increase in prices for scarce items.

This is what Huawei’s first smartwatch that measures blood pressure looks like. Huawei Watch D showed on the render



Earlier, Huawei has already said that it is going to introduce a smartwatch with support for blood pressure measurement by the end of the year, and now a render of the device has been published on the Weibo social network.

The render is indicative: it shows the most important thing – the measured blood pressure, and just below – the pulse. This watch will be addressed to those who are much more actively monitoring their vital signs than their progress during training. Otherwise, instead of a dedicated Health key, there would be a button labeled Sport (or something like that).

In terms of design, the new product differs from the current models of Huawei, but this is understandable. One might think that the device, along with a heart rate sensor, will receive a function for determining blood oxygen saturation. And if there is also the possibility of measuring the ECG, then Watch D can be called the most functional device available on the market based on the capabilities of monitoring vital signs. By the way, Huawei watches have already learned how to measure body temperature.

The official premiere of the Huawei Watch D is expected in December. Also in December we are waiting for the premiere of the Huawei clamshell smartphone, which will compare favorably with the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 with a larger external display.

In this market, Samsung smartphones accounted for half of all sales. The company’s achievement in Vietnam contrasts with other brands



Samsung has been the leader in the smartphone market for many years, but its positions vary greatly from country to country. As it turned out, in Vietnam, Samsung crushed half of the market.

At the end of the third quarter, the Korean giant took 49% of the Vietnamese market, and a year ago the company’s share was 36%. At the same time, almost all other companies from the top five recorded a decrease in their market shares.

As you can see, only Vivo was able to increase its share from 6% to 8%, but Oppo, Xiaomi and Realme cannot boast of this. At the same time, the market as a whole sank by 28%, so against this background Samsung’s achievement is even more significant.

Budget smartphones helped the company achieve such indicators. The Galaxy A12, A22 and A03s were the top-selling models in Vietnam. By the way, Galaxy A12, as we already know, was the second most popular worldwide this year.

The crypto market has collapsed once again. Bitcoin fell by almost 8% per day, Ethereum – by 9%, Solana – by 6%, and Polkadot – by all 11%



Bitcoin fell to almost a two-month low. Over the course of a day, the rate of the world’s main cryptocurrency fell by almost 8%. Now for 1 BTC they give about $ 54,500. However, there are cryptocurrencies that have dropped even more.

For example, Polkadot fell 11%, XRP and Ethereum fell 9%. Minus 8% for Dogecoin, minus 9% for Avalanche, which, despite the general decline in the market, grew for a long time. Shiba Inu is losing over 10%. As a result, the cryptocurrency market capitalization decreased by 10.5% during the day – to $ 2.39 trillion. But what is the reason?

The crypto market has collapsed once again.  Bitcoin fell by almost 8% per day, Ethereum - by 9%, Solana - by 6%, and Polkadot - by all 11%

Bitcoin, like all other cryptocurrencies, is an asset. Its cost depends on the ratio of purchases and sales in the market. Apparently, investors began to sell risky assets (and cryptocurrencies are just such) amid alarming news about a new strain of coronavirus B.1.1.529 – traders are worried that events will develop according to the worst scenario with global lockdowns and another brake on the world economy. Against this background, even oil, which has been actively growing recently, is falling: over the course of a day, futures for Brent and WTI have fallen in price by about 10%.

So far, no one knows how the situation with B.1.1.529 will develop further, but analysts have begun to adjust their forecasts about the growth in the value of Bitcoin. In fact, few people already believe that this year we will see $ 100,000 for 1 BTC.
