Samsung smartphone production drops due to Qualcomm chip shortage

Published

on

Late last year, many auto companies around the world cut production or even halted production due to a shortage of chips. The deficit has increased this year, affecting the PC, smartphone and game console industries.

Samsung, one of the world’s largest smartphone suppliers, has been affected by the ongoing shortage of Qualcomm SoCs. Shortages hit Samsung’s low-end and mid-range models, according to insiders. Earlier it was reported that Qualcomm’s flagship platform Snapdragon 888 is also in short supply. However, it is not yet known how this will affect the supply of Samsung’s flagship mobile phones.

Samsung isn’t the only manufacturer experiencing a chip shortage. Earlier, Lu Weibing, president of Xiaomi China and general manager of the Redmi brand, confirmed that the partners’ warehouses essentially do not have the necessary components.

Sources confirm that they noted that there is currently a shortage of SoCs for mobile phones, power management ICs and other components.

The deficit is expected to last until the end of 2021.

There are a lot of technical problems that we are

On the sidelines of the Army-2022 forum, Kaspersky Lab CEO Evgeny Kaspersky announced that the company is finalizing the functionality of its hack-proof mobile phone to work with critical infrastructure.

“There are a lot of technical problems that we are slowly coping with.”  Evgeny Kaspersky spoke about a branded secure smartphone, which does not yet have a camera and performance problems

We wrote everything from scratch, so we still need to finish it. Camera does not work. We do, but it takes time. Plus performance – there is still work to make it work at the same speed that we are used to. There are a lot of technical problems that we are slowly coping with. When we show it and say it’s ready, I don’t know“Kaspersky said.

According to him, the device will be something between a regular smartphone and a push-button phone. “However, we do not consider it as a replacement for a regular smartphone. Still, this is more for working with critical infrastructure. … Modernity requires that infrastructure can be managed remotely. Therefore, a device is required that will be guaranteed unhackable. Therefore, we are making a device that will have a fairly limited functionality. There will be no App Store, there will be no chips that everyone loves on smartphones, but it will be a thing that can be safely controlled by a conditional turbine“Kaspersky added.

For the first time, Kaspersky announced work on creating smartphones under its own brand with protection against hackers in December 2020, then it was assumed that they would appear in 2021.

The iPhone 14 Pro Max feels like a brick and

An unknown source’s impressions of using the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max have appeared on the Web.

The iPhone 14 Pro Max feels like a brick, and the 48-megapixel camera shoots worse at night than the iPhone 13 Pro Max.  Appeared the first review of the upcoming updates Apple

The information was shared by insider LeaksApplePro, who, among other things, shared the correct images of the iPhone 13 before the announcement last year. The insider does not disclose who exactly shared his impressions, but this is not so important.

So, the new shape of the notch in the screen does not affect the user experience. Physically, the new notch is smaller than the current one, but it works pretty much the same. That is, apparently, Apple has not figured out how to effectively use the freed up screen area.

The new camera also has nuances. The source says that during the day the new 48-megapixel sensor turns out to be the best among smartphone cameras, but at night everything is not so good, and the same iPhone 13 Pro takes better pictures and less noisy. But Apple may well fix this with a software update.

The source also says that according to his feelings, autonomy has grown by a couple of hours, but he can’t say for sure. But the speakers definitely got better.

The screens of new products are about the same as in the current generation, as well as the huge mass of the top model. The source writes that the iPhone 14 Pro Max feels like a brick.
