Before the launch of the iPhone 12 series, various predictions were announced, while in the end the most optimistic ones were confirmed. Smartphones of the iPhone 12 line managed to launch the so-called “supercycle”: we are talking about a situation when a record number of existing iPhone owners are ready to purchase the iPhone 12, while the new smartphone also has a lot of potential buyers who have not used the company’s smartphones before.
Due to the strongest demand for the iPhone 12 in the fourth quarter of last year, iPhone sales amounted to about 80 million smartphones. Apple also overtook Samsung to become the world’s most successful smartphone maker in the previous quarter.
Strong demand for the iPhone 12 boosted iPhone sales not only in the fourth quarter of last year, but also significantly influenced overall iPhone sales for the year. Based on production orders and estimates from research institutes, the company set a record last year and could be improved this year.
Informed whistleblowers report that Apple ordered 57 million iPhones to be produced in the first quarter. At the same time, back in January, the company planned to order 2 million fewer smartphones. Compared to the first quarter of last year, iPhone orders grew by an impressive 54%.
Analysts add that Apple will place an order for 44 million smartphones in the second quarter. Yes, this is less than in the first quarter, but 26% more than a year earlier.
Published the first picture taken on the camera of a clamshell smartphone Moto RAZR 2022
Motorola has published on the Weibo social network a picture taken with the main camera of the Moto RARZ 2022 clamshell smartphone, which is expected to premiere on August 11. Typically, mobile device manufacturers try to take bright and memorable photos, or vice versa, they take photos in difficult conditions (for example, with a lack of light) in order to demonstrate the quality capabilities of the camera. But in this case, there is neither one nor the other – the frame is far from the most revealing.
Let’s hope that one of these days more clear photos from the RAZR 2022 camera will appear on the Web. The smartphone, we recall, will be the first in the world in its category (folding smartphones with a vertical screen), the display frame rate of which will be 144 Hz. The main screen of the device is characterized by a diagonal of 6.7 inches, the diagonal of the additional front screen is 2.7 inches. The hardware platform of the smartphone is based on SoC Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1. All these data have already been officially confirmed.

No simplified version of Nothing Phone (1): Carl Pei denied the preparation of such a model
The founder of Nothing, Carl Pei, commented on the social network rumors about the release of the budget version of Nothing Phone (1). According to them, the new version will lose the Glyph LED backlight.
Pei stated that no simplified Nothing Phone (1) without LEDs is planned. He briefly called it “fake news”.
Previously, the Nothing Phone (1) smartphone was tested in the AnTuTu benchmark, where it unexpectedly showed the best result in its class. At the same time, the smartphone endured the drop test worse. It is noteworthy that the screen can withstand drops in the presence of a film, but the back panel suffers much more.
