The British company Bullitt Group, engaged in the production of mobile devices under the Cat brand under the exclusive license of Caterpillar, introduced the Cat S75 smartphone. It is paired with the Motorola Defy 2 smartphone, and together they are positioned as the first Android-based smartphones with built-in two-way satellite communications and messaging capabilities.
Unlike Apple’s solution, which is only designed to communicate with emergency services, the Cat S75 allows you to send messages to friends and family from far away places – whether it be the desert or the middle of the ocean. Such a message will come in the form of a regular SMS, no special hardware or software is required. To answer you will need a mobile application (available for iOS and Android).
The Cat S75 belongs to the category of ruggedized rugged smartphones. It is protected against sand, dust, dirt and water (IP68 and IP69K), and also meets the military standard Mil-Spec 810H for resistance to temperature extremes, drops and vibrations.
The smartphone is equipped with a 6.6-inch Full HD + (1080 x 2400 pixels) display with a refresh rate of 120 Hz and protective glass Gorilla Glass Victu, an 8 MP front camera, a main triple camera (50 MP, 8 and 2 MP), SoC MediaTek Dimensity D930, 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of flash memory, expandable with microSD cards, and a 5000 mAh battery with support for 15W Qi wireless charging. In addition to satellite communications, 5G and 4G are also supported.
The Android 12 operating system has become the software platform. The smartphone will receive two major updates – to Android 13 and 14, and security updates will be released within 5 years.
The Cat S75 is available for pre-order starting today. The smartphone is available from select carriers and select retailers in the EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa) region. The price is 600 euros and includes 3 months of messaging via satellite.
The frameless Meizu 20 Infinity Unbounded Edition has a 2.48 mm wide frame. Real photos of a smartphone are very different from advertising
Meizu introduced the Meizu 20 Infinity Unbounded Edition smartphone along with the Meizu 20 and Meizu 20 Pro models a few days ago. During a press conference, the company showed photos that showed the almost complete absence of a screen frame. But on live photos there is a frame, and a decent one.
Now this is not called a frame, but “narrowness” – it is the same on four sides and is 2.48 mm. Interestingly, the Meizu 20 Infinity Unbounded Edition is being touted as the fruit of a collaboration between Meizu itself and display manufacturer BOE – the companies have been hard at work on this “frameless” model.
However, the screen here is really interesting. The BOE Q9 OLED panel is characterized by a diagonal of 6.79 inches, a resolution of 3192 x 1368 pixels, a peak brightness of 1850 cd/m2, and a frame rate of 120 Hz. The PWM control frequency is 1920 Hz.
Meizu 20 Infinity Unbounded Edition, like other models of the line, is built on SoC Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, endowed with LPDDR5X memory and UFS 4.0. The front camera has a 32MP sensor, while the main camera has 50MP (Sony IMX766), 12MP (SonyIMX563, ultra-wide angle) and 12MP (Sony IMX663, telephoto) sensors. The lenses are protected by sapphire glass.
The battery capacity of the smartphone was 4800 mAh, it supports 65 W wired charging and 50 W wireless power. Meizu 20 Infinity Unbounded Edition is 8.2 mm thick and weighs 215 grams. The device also received a metal side frame, a sub-screen ultrasonic fingerprint scanner, stereo speakers, an NFC chip, and an IR emitter. In China, for Meizu 20 Infinity Unbounded Edition they ask from 920 (12/256 GB) to 1240 (16 GB / 1 TB) dollars – this is the most expensive model in the line.
Again, a curved screen in an inexpensive smartphone. The first photos of Realme 11 Pro + appeared
Relame will continue to produce affordable smartphones with a curved screen. In the TENAA database, the Realme 11 Pro + model was lit up, which is just equipped with such a display.
The device with catalog number RMX3770 will receive a completely new camera module design for Relame. Perhaps the future flagships of the company will look about the same.
There are no technical parameters yet, but earlier the device was credited with the MediaTek platform with 5G support. For example, the same Realme 10 Pro +, which was the first in this class to receive a curved screen, relies on the Dimensity 1080. You can also recall that this model started with a price of only $ 240.
Samsung, is this really a smartphone for fans? Galaxy S23 FE will be released at the end of the year, but without the Snapdragon platform at all
The fan-made smartphone Samsung Galaxy S23 FE will still be released, according to the well-known resource SamMobile.
The novelty should be expected in the fourth quarter of this year, but there is one feature that many may not like the S23 FE. The fact is that this model will not be based on Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 at all, and not even on Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. It will receive Exynos 2200. And in all markets.
Yes, relative to the Galaxy S21 FE, the new model will become more productive. However, it cannot even be compared with the current flagships of Samsung. In addition, Exynos 2200 has not the best reputation among users. At the same time, we recall that the Galaxy S21 FE was present in most markets only with the Qualcomm platform.
But the new model will get a new camera. The main sensor will be 50 megapixels, probably like the Galaxy S22/S23. Also reported is 128 or 256 GB of flash memory, 6 or 8 GB of RAM and a 4500 mAh battery with 25-watt charging.
