Analysts at TrendForce have studied the situation in the smartphone market and concluded that the release of these products increased in the third quarter compared to the second by 5.7%. The growth turned out to be less than last year and even more so in 2019, before the start of the pandemic. More growth is hampered by shortages of 4G SoCs, entry-level 5G SoCs, display drivers and other components, analysts said. In total, 325 million devices were shipped in the quarter.
As for the forecast for the full year of 2021, TrendForce has lowered it to 1.335 billion units, which corresponds to an increase compared to 2020 by 6.5%. The previous forecast was 1.345 billion units and 7.3%. Analysts note that the downward correction mainly reflects the impact of component deficiencies. They also expressed concern that the pandemic will lead to further weakening of demand and the market will not return to the level reached before it.
The market leader with a 21.2% share is Samsung. Its share is expected to decline to 19.4% in the fourth quarter. In second place is Apple. Its share at the end of the third quarter is 15.9%, but in the fourth quarter it is expected to grow to 23.2% due to the release of new generation models. The top five also include Oppo, Xiaomi and Vivo. Their shares are shown in the table:
Triple camera, 120Hz, 5000mAh for only $120. Introduced inexpensive smartphone ZTE Travel 30
ZTE’s range of smartphones has been replenished with the Travel 30 model. It differs from many other low-cost smartphones by using a single-chip Spreadtrum system instead of Unisoc. And yet, despite the low price, there is a fingerprint scanner and a screen with a frame rate of 120 Hz!
However, the screen resolution is small – 1600 x 720 pixels, diagonal – 6.52 inches. The display, of course, IPS – OLED is not supposed to be such cheap models. The hardware platform is based on SoC Spreadtrum SC9863A from 2018. The 28nm process, eight 1.6GHz Arm Cortex-A55 cores, a PowerVR GE8322 GPU, and an LTE Cat.7 modem are all typical of a low-cost four-year-old SoC.
The front camera is characterized by a resolution of 5 megapixels, in the main camera – sensors with a resolution of 13, 2 and 2 megapixels. The battery capacity was 5000 mAh, it supports 10 W charging. There is also a standard headphone jack, a fingerprint scanner, a face recognition function implemented in the front camera, and a voice assistant.
ZTE didn’t go for the massive amounts of flash storage currently offered by budget smartphone makers for about $100: it’s the only configuration with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of flash, and it’s priced at $120.
Perhaps this is what the new flagship smartphone HTC Viverse looks like. Renders published
The official premiere of the HTC Viverse smartphone is expected on June 28. According to preliminary data, this will be the flagship model to actively use virtual and augmented reality technologies, which, in general, is reflected in the title.
Images have been posted online that may show Viverse posing. If it is true in the pictures, then the HTC flagship will receive a rounded metal frame of the screen and a conditionally frameless display with a front camera embedded in the corner. Large circular cutout on the top edge, probably for the IR emitter.
There are no technical details about Vivierse, but since we are talking about the flagship, and even with an emphasis on virtual reality technologies, it is logical to think about using the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC as part of the hardware platform.
