Sony today unveiled the next generation of its flagship Xperia 1, the Xperia 1 III. The novelty, if I may say so, continues the traditions of its predecessors: there is an excellent OLED screen of ultra-high resolution 4K, a battery with an average capacity of 4500 mAh and a multi-module camera with sensors of an unimpressive resolution of 12 megapixels.
Why Sony, which supplies other manufacturers with large optical format and much higher resolution sensors, does not want to install such sensors in its smartphones is a big mystery. The opinion that “megapixels do not decide” is hardly appropriate in this case: Sony Xperia 1 II, released last year, is in the fifth hundred smartphones in the DxOMark rating. Even the two-year-old flagships Samsung and Huawei shoot better. Of course, Sony Xperia 1 III will perform better than its predecessor in camera tests, but hardly cardinally.
In fact, the main camera of Sony Xperia 1 III has four modules – the main one (it uses a wide-angle lens with a focal length of 24 mm and an aperture of f / 1.7), an additional one (with an ultra-wide-angle lens with a focal length of 16 mm and an aperture of f / 2, 2), as well as a periscope module with a focal length of 70 and 105 mm and apertures of F / 2.3 and F / 2.8 and a 3D ToF module. The front camera uses an 8 megapixel sensor. The optical format of the sensors used in this model’s main camera is from 1 / 1.7 “to 1 / 2.9”. That is, there is no talk at all about really large matrices about an inch in size.
The smartphone is built on a single-chip Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 platform, has 12 GB of RAM and 256 or 512 GB of flash memory. The 6.5-inch OLED display features 4K resolution and 120Hz frame rate. It also supports HDR. The battery capacity of the device, as mentioned above, is 4500 mAh, the smartphone comes with a 30 W power supply (50% charge in 30 minutes). Other features of the model are the presence of a standard headphone jack, protection of the display with hardened Gorilla Glass Victus and protection of the case in accordance with the degree of IP68.
The smartphone has three colors – black, gray and purple. Sales will start in the summer, and the price will be announced closer to the start of sales. But, traditionally for a Japanese company, the novelty will not be cheap.
Will Apple’s dependence on Samsung increase again? The Korean giant may get orders for the production of screens for the iPhone 14 and 14 Max
The Chinese company BOE recently decided to outsmart Apple in order to continue to make money on the supply of screens for the iPhone. However, the Cupertino giant found out about the manipulation of the partner and suspended the acceptance of supplies from BOE. It seems that Samsung can make good money on this whole situation.
Samsung, which is already the main screen supplier for the iPhone 14 Pro and 14 Pro Max, may reportedly start making displays for the iPhone 14 and 14 Max as well. That is, she will actually get orders for BOE.
At the moment, Apple has still not given the go-ahead to start producing screens for the new iPhones at the Chinese manufacturer’s facilities, and it is believed that BOE will eventually lose all or most of the orders.
If the situation with BOE is really resolved not in favor of the company, then Apple will simply have no choice but to turn to Samsung, because no one else will be able to produce such a huge number of screens without prior preparation, which, moreover, would suit the demanding Apple in quality .
4500 mAh, 80 W, 50 MP and three years of work without loss of performance. Oppo Reno8 Pro unveiled, world’s first Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 smartphone
Oppo today officially introduced the Reno8 Pro smartphone in China, and it became the first model in the world based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 single-chip system. Tests of this SoC will appear a little later, but according to preliminary data, it will be inferior in performance to MediaTek Dimensity 8000 and Dimensity 8100.
However, there is no doubt that Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 will be popular with smartphone manufacturers, and that Reno8 Pro is just the first sign. The smartphone also received LPDDR4X RAM, UFS 2.1 flash memory and proprietary NPU MariSilicon X like the flagships – it allows you to improve the quality of photos and videos.
The Oppo Reno8 Pro features a 6.62-inch Samsung E4 OLED screen with a resolution of 2400 x 1080 pixels, a 120Hz frame rate and a peak brightness of 1300 cd/m2. The fingerprint scanner is under the screen.
Embedded front camera – with a 32-megapixel Sony IMX709 sensor, the main camera uses sensors with a resolution of 50 MP (Sony IMX766, with OIS), 8 MP (OmniVision OV08D10) and 2 MP. The battery capacity was 4500 mAh, fast wired charging with 80 W is supported. There is also an NFC adapter, a loudspeaker – only one.
The Oppo Reno8 Pro is 7.57 mm thick and weighs 188 grams. The OS is Android 12 with ColorOS 12.1.1 interface. The creators guarantee that the smartphone will work for three years without loss of performance. Prices are as follows: 8/128 GB – $450, 8/256 GB – $480, 12/256 GB – $525.
The world’s first smartphone with a 200-megapixel camera is almost ready to go. Motorola will present its new product in July
The first smartphone with a 200-megapixel camera will be released in July.
Recall, the first will be Motorola Frontier. Under what name it will enter the market is still unknown, but it will probably refer to the Edge line.
The smartphone will get a 200-megapixel Samsung ISOCELL HP1 sensor, and for now one can only wonder if such sensors are needed in smartphones, given that most flagships now rely on 50-megapixel sensors.
The Motorola smartphone was also previously credited with a 144Hz OLED screen, a 60MP front camera, Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 and 125W charging.
