Hisense has introduced a new mid-range smartphone Hi Reader Pro with an e-ink display. The novelty is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 662 SoC, 4 GB of RAM and 128 GB of permanent memory. But instead of the classic LCD or AMOLED display, the Hi Reader Pro has a 6.1-inch E Ink screen with a black and white display.
This display supports 16 shades of gray, and its frequency is significantly inferior to LCD screens. At the same time, the novelty is estimated at less than $ 250 on pre-order. Other features include a 4000 mAh battery, 4G LTE support, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0 support, dual microphones, and Android 11.
It is noteworthy that the company has a Hisense Hi Reader device, and this is not a smartphone, but just a reader with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. It is not yet clear why the company combined two actually different classes of devices in one line.
The timing of the release of new items in China and the global market has not yet been reported.
The authors of the GSM Arena resource compared the photo capabilities of the latest Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra with its predecessor. Unlike the previous comparison, this time we have shots in high enough quality that allow you to compare the details. However, unfortunately, there are not many photos.
To begin with, it is worth noting that in low or poor lighting, the new model really shows itself better. True, this is partly due to the sharpening of images, which not everyone likes.
As for the comparison in good lighting, there is no particular difference, except that the pictures on the new smartphone are less contrasting and saturated in colors.
If we compare photos in 200 and 50 megapixel modes, we can note not only higher detail in the first case, but also increased contrast.
Recall also, we have already seen the comparison of the Galaxy S23 Ultra with the iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Sony may present its next-generation flagship smartphone at the end of this month at the MWC 2023 event, but today the first photo of the Xperia 1 V has hit the Web.
As you can see, Sony will continue to use the same design that they switched to with the Xperia 1 II in 2020. Compared to the current model, there are some changes in the design of the camera, but they are minor. It also seems that the module itself has become larger, although compared to some modern devices, it is still very tiny.
You can also see that the lower camera, as in the current generation, will be a periscope module. According to the leaks, the Xperia 1 V will receive a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, which is logical. Given the parameters of past models of the line, we can also expect a large amount of memory and not the largest screen by modern standards.
85% of all profits in the smartphone market came from Apple, and this is a new record
Apple’s last quarter was the first quarter in years that the company recorded a year-on-year decline in revenue and profit. However, Apple still earns the most in the smartphone market, and 2022 was a record year for it. According to Counterpoint, 85% of all profits in the smartphone market came from Apple.
First, it means that Apple made more money than everyone else combined. Secondly, this is a record figure for the company. But that’s not all. At the end of last year, Apple also accounted for 48% of all revenue in the smartphone market, and this is also a record value for the company. And even in terms of deliveries, the Cupertino giant set its own record, taking 18% of the entire market.
As you can see from the graphs, shipments as a percentage have not changed much since at least 2015, but Apple’s profit and revenue in recent years relative to the market as a whole have grown significantly. That is, the average selling price of a smartphone from a company is growing.
In total, about 1.2 billion smartphones were sold in the world last year, which corresponds to a fall of 12%. And this is the lowest figure in almost 10 years.
Smartphone revenue fell 9% to $409 billion. This is the lowest figure since 2017. The increase in the average selling price of a smartphone last year was 5%. Given the statistics, probably thanks to Apple.
