Sony’s Japanese site has posted another product discontinuation notice. Recall that in October, the manufacturer warned of a delay in the supply of a7SIII, a7II, a6400, a6100 and ZV-E10 cameras, as well as a number of lenses, but at the end of November admitted that supply chain problems were “more serious than expected”, so the release of cameras Sony a7 II, Sony a6400 and Sony a6100, Sony ECM-B1M microphone and Sony PXW-Z190 professional camcorder had to be temporarily discontinued. In early December, the company returned to the unpleasant topic again – this time it published a notice of the temporary suspension of orders for the Alpha ZV-E10 camera.
In a new report, Sony said the company is no longer fulfilling orders for the a7C full-frame mirrorless camera and the a6600 APS-C mirrorless camera, as “procurement of parts for digital imaging devices is delayed due to global shortages.” Sony even suggests that orders that have already been taken may remain unfulfilled. The manufacturer promises to keep retailers and consumers in the loop by posting updates on its website.
Both the a7C and a6600 are relatively new cameras. They were released in the second half of 2020. Presumably, Sony had to sacrifice them to save the chips for the more expensive a7 IV, a1 and a7S III full-frame cameras.
The company also confirmed that it will no longer manufacture the a7 II or a6100 cameras. She explains this by the fact that due to the shortage “there is no prospect” to obtain the necessary components.
The American Customer Satisfaction Index (ACSI) has published a press release on the satisfaction of Americans with certain brands and devices. In this document, we are most interested in smartphones.
And here the leader was the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. It could be said that this is unexpected, since in the US Samsung is still about half behind Apple in sales, but in fact a year earlier, the Samsung device was also in the lead in a similar list, and two years ago the company’s smartphones occupied all the first three places.
Be that as it may, the flagship of 2020 became the leader, which at the time of release was scolded for various shortcomings and features. Unexpectedly, LG Aristo 3, unknown outside the US, took second place. Moreover, this is a budget smartphone in 2019 on the SoC Snapdragon 425! How he even got on the leaderboard is completely unclear. Closes the top three iPhone 11 Pro Max.
Also on the leaderboard are HTC U12+, Pixel 4 and iPhone XR. In general, the list turned out to be as diverse as possible.
If we talk about brands, here Samsung and Apple share the first line of the rating with 80 points each. The top five also includes Google, Motorola and LG.
A photo of covers allegedly intended for Apple’s new generation smartphones has appeared on the Web. The authenticity of the image cannot be verified, but in general everything looks plausible.
The two larger cases are for iPhone 14 Max and 14 Pro Max. The other two are made for the iPhone 14 and 14 Pro.
The difference in camera cutouts indicates that the lower models are likely to retain the two-sensor configuration, while the older ones will get three. At the same time, if we compare these cases with cases for current models, it becomes clear that the dimensions of the camera blocks will grow again, which allows us to hope for even better photos and videos. Recall that numerous rumors suggest that the older smartphones of the new generation will receive new 48-megapixel image sensors for the main cameras.
