Smartphone shipments will grow 13.9% in the current quarter over the same period last year, according to analyst firm IDC. In general, this market will grow by 5.5% over the year. Growth will be driven by continued recovery in demand and increased supply of 5G-enabled devices, analysts said. IDC expects the global smartphone market to grow at a CAGR of 3.6% from 2020 to 2025.
China and the United States, the two largest geographic markets, are forecast to grow 5.0% and 3.5% this year. Despite the 10-11% decline recorded in both markets in 2020, the development of 5G and the success of the recently launched iPhone models are expected to help boost sales.
In other words, 5G is seen as a driving force. Analysts believe that 5G smartphones will account for more than 40% of all shipments in 2021, and this figure will increase to 69% by 2025. Growing competition will cause the average selling price of devices with support for fifth generation networks by the end of the forecast period, that is, by 2025, to $ 404.
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.
Published screenshots of the scandalous spyware Pegasus, which is used to hack the iPhone and Android smartphones
The Israeli company NSO Group’s Pegasus software has been talked about a lot for a long time, but only a few have had to work with it. Now you can see what it is and how it is organized – screenshots of Pegasus leaked to the Web.
As you can see, the top panel is represented by shortcuts for accessing various smartphone services: contacts, geolocation data, camera photos, microphone recordings. One of the screenshots demonstrates the ability to remotely turn on the microphone, and the other has a “Take a picture” button using the camera. Thus, the user of a hacked smartphone may not even have a clue that wiretapping is being carried out through his phone and video or photo surveillance is being conducted. The software also provides access to correspondence in instant messengers and allows you to execute various commands on your mobile device. With Pegasus, you can hack not only Android smartphones, but also iPhones. However, not all Apple phones are hackable.
The NSO Group says it provides “technology to empowered governments to help them fight terrorism and crime” and claims to be sensitive to human rights. However, in 2021, a scandal erupted: the media published data according to which authoritarian regimes use Pegasus to hack into the phones of human rights activists, opposition journalists and lawyers. Pegasus is also used against politicians: there is evidence that about 600 government officials from 34 countries are among the victims of Pegasus.
