After Apple and Google, Samsung also launched its own smartphone repair program. True, it works with great limitations: firstly, components are available only for models of the Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S21 lines (as well as the Galaxy Tab S7 + tablet), and secondly, the range of components is meager – users can buy (and, of course, replace ) screen, charging port or back panel. The most requested components in case of repair are the display and the battery, but batteries are not offered.
The program, as in the case of Google, launched in collaboration with iFixit. On the iFixit website, you can order components, there are also detailed instructions for replacing a particular component. When purchasing an original screen, the user will receive a tag to send the old screen for recycling.
In terms of pricing, Samsung says that users will pay for parts the same as “affiliated repair providers” (in other words, authorized service centers) pay. The most expensive spare part is the screen for the Galaxy S21 Ultra at $233. And the back panels and charging connectors cost mostly $60-70. However, Samsung noted that prices are subject to change. The program is currently only available in the US.
No simplified version of Nothing Phone (1): Carl Pei denied the preparation of such a model
The founder of Nothing, Carl Pei, commented on the social network rumors about the release of the budget version of Nothing Phone (1). According to them, the new version will lose the Glyph LED backlight.
Pei stated that no simplified Nothing Phone (1) without LEDs is planned. He briefly called it “fake news”.
Previously, the Nothing Phone (1) smartphone was tested in the AnTuTu benchmark, where it unexpectedly showed the best result in its class. At the same time, the smartphone endured the drop test worse. It is noteworthy that the screen can withstand drops in the presence of a film, but the back panel suffers much more.
The price of the smartphone is from 469 euros for the basic memory configuration.
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 clamshell smartphone was shown on a high-quality render in three days of announcement
Insider Roland Quandt has posted a new image of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 on Twitter. The image appears to be official, but the phone will not be released until three days later.
Insiders have repeatedly noted that the Galaxy Z Flip 4 in terms of design is not much different from the current generation model. They don’t expect a revolution in terms of technical parameters either – the main innovation will be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 SoC, but the camera sensors, apparently, will remain 12-megapixel. However, it is expected that the battery capacity will increase to 3700 mAh.
Roland Quandt is a well-known informant. Previously, he completely declassified the GoPro 9 Black and GoPro 10 Black action cameras before their announcement, and also named their exact cost.
The frame is narrower, but the camera protrudes much more. iPhone 14 Pro compared with iPhone 13 Pro live
The official premiere of the iPhone 14 smartphones will take place in September, and a comparison of the current iPhone 13 Pro and the promising iPhone 14 Pro has already been published on the Web. And the comparison is live.
Usually, production of a new generation of iPhone starts in early summer, so theoretically these photos could be a production iPhone 14 Pro, although it is more likely that this is a prototype or even a mock-up. Be that as it may, in terms of dimensions and layout, it should not differ from the retail version.
The photo clearly shows how different the front cameras and screen cutouts are in the current and future models. The screen bezel on the iPhone 14 Pro is also smaller. The main camera block in the iPhone 14 Pro is larger than the similar block in the iPhone 13 Pro, and the lenses protrude more out of the body.
In the new lineup, only the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max are expected to receive the Apple A16 SoC. Also, the Pro versions are credited with a 48-megapixel module in a block with an ultra-wide-angle lens and support for 8K video recording.
