A few days ago, patent images of a Vivo smartphone with a drone camera appeared on the Web, and now renders based on those pictures have been published. They better visualize the idea of a smartphone with a drone hiding inside.
As the source reasonably notes, such a drone should be very small – in fact, the dimensions should not exceed 5 x 5 cm, otherwise it simply will not fit in the case. And naturally, such a drone should be almost flat, since the thickness of smartphones usually does not exceed one centimeter.
Of course, if you have four propellers, a pair of cameras and several infrared sensors, you will not be able to place a large battery inside such an aircraft, so you can definitely not count on decent autonomy, at the level of the same DJI drones. Such a mini-quadrocopter will be charged through the USB-C port of the smartphone, and control will be carried out from the smartphone.
So far, Vivo has filed only a patent, and nothing indicates the release of such a device in the near future. But the idea is pretty interesting. For example, such a smartphone would be very useful on vacation.
The first live photo of the back panel of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra has appeared. Ice Universe has already commented on the snapshot
The authoritative insider Ice Universe has commented on the first photo of the back panel of the flagship smartphone Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra, which appeared on the Chinese social network Weibo.
The back cover of this alleged Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra is generally correct, but it lacks a flash hole, which may not be the final version. Ice universe
According to the leaks, the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra will feature a 6.8-inch AMOLED display with curved edges. The phone will have narrow bezels and a 40MP selfie camera just like the Galaxy S21 Ultra. In addition to the 108MP main camera, there will be an ultra wide-angle 12MP camera and two 12MP telephoto cameras with 3x and 10x optical zoom. The ultra-wide-angle camera will be equipped with optical image stabilization for the first time.
The smartphone should get a compartment for storing the S Pen stylus, which can be inserted into the smartphone through the lower left corner, just like in the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. While the current S21 Ultra is also S Pen compatible, the smartphone doesn’t have room for a stylus, so you’ll need to buy a matching case for it. To add room for the stylus, Samsung will have to reshape the case and move away from the rounded corners that are so characteristic of the Galaxy S series, so the new model will have much more resemblance to the more rectangular Note line. Ice Universe has provided accurate information on Samsung smartphones and image sensors many times, including the recent announcements of new 50MP and 200MP sensors. He was also the first to show accurate images of smartphones with waterfall screens. …
How to “turn” your smartphone into a Pixel 6 Pro. Google Camera 8.3 port has already appeared on the web
The Google Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro smartphones have not yet appeared on sale, and a port of the Google Camera application is already available on the web, which will be used with new products.
Port GCam 8.3.252_V0e_MGC, as always, is not suitable for any smartphone, but many modern ones should be installed without problems. This requires an OS no older than Android 9 and support for the Camera2 API. The Google Camera app in this case is taken from the latest beta version of Android 12. Considering that the final version has already been released, the corresponding GCam port is likely to appear in the near future. Of course, some of the new functions in such ports will not be, since their work is directly related to the SoC Tensor in the new Pixel smartphones. …
When all the leaders of the smartphone market sagged in sales, and small companies grew. Canalys India stats look unusual
Analysts at Canalys estimated the smartphone market in India for the third quarter. It sank 5% to 47.5 million devices. The reason is problems with supplies, primarily of inexpensive devices.
At the same time, in quarterly terms, the market grew by 47%, which indicates a recovery from the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Xiaomi remains the market leader, which sank more than the market as a whole. The company shipped 11.2 million smartphones, down 14% from a year earlier. But Xiaomi still holds 24% of the market. Samsung holds 19%. The company sold 9.1 million smartphones, decreasing shipments by 10%. Vivo closed the top three, but also sank in sales by 8%, to 8.1 million devices, taking 17% of the market. Realme and Oppo entered the top five, showing sales declines of 14% and 7%, respectively. Thus, all five market leaders not only sagged in sales, but sagged more than the market on average. This means that many smaller companies have managed to significantly increase their performance. Actually, all other companies outside the top five have more than doubled their sales (by 108%)! Unfortunately, analysts do not indicate which companies have grown the most.
