The basis for many camera phones in 2022 and 2023. Sony IMX866 sensor details revealed

The Sony IMX866 sensor, which will be used in many flagship (and not only) smartphones in 2022 and 2023, will be larger than the IMX766.

According to recent reports, the 50-megapixel sensor will have a 16:11 aspect ratio and a 1/1.49-inch optical format. For comparison, the IMX766 is 1/1.56 inches.

At the same time, the difference is small, so it is hardly worth betting on this. In addition, it is worth remembering that in modern smartphones a good sensor is conditionally only half the success, since software is very important.

The first smartphones with IMX866 should be the Vivo X80 line. Given that Vivo now makes some of the best camera phones, the new sensor could allow the company to take the lead altogether.

Apple has already switched its smartphones to USB-C port due to the latest EU laws, but now India wants to implement the same, and this is a problem for Apple.

According to Reuters, India also wants to oblige manufacturers to switch to a single USB-C standard and is currently negotiating with manufacturers to introduce this requirement in the country by June 2025. The source says all manufacturers agreed…except Apple.

The bottom line is that India may oblige manufacturers to convert all smartphones that will be sold in the country to USB-C from the moment the law comes into force. For Apple, this means that for India specifically, the iPhone 15 models already converted to USB-C are not enough – it is necessary to abandon Lightning for all other smartphones that will still be produced and sold in India by the summer of 2025.

Of course, Apple will not do this, since it is not practical for India alone. The company said that if the law is passed, it will be difficult to achieve production targets set under the Indian government’s manufacturing incentive scheme. The company is asking that older iPhone models be added to the list of exceptions so that the new law does not apply to them.

Apple, in its new iOS update, has added support for the Qi2 wireless charging standard to older iPhone models.

Apple will not be greedy and will add support for Qi2 wireless charging for iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 smartphones

Qi2 support was found in iOS 17.2, which is now available as a candidate version. It states that Qi2 will be supported by smartphones of the iPhone 13 and iPhone 14 lines. Currently, only the latest iPhone 15 has support for the standard.

Let us remember that Qi2 is a new universal standard for wireless charging, which Apple also helped develop.

Everything is heading towards the release of an iPhone without Dynamic Island and any cutouts or holes. LG Innotek is already preparing such a screen

Everything is heading towards the release of an iPhone without

LG Innotek has begun developing an advanced “under panel camera” (UPC) that has no visible lens hole. According to TheElec, such screens will be designed for full-screen iPhones without cutouts or holes.

UPC technology means that the camera lens is not visible when the camera application is not running. In this case, an image can be displayed above the camera area in an inactive state. UPC is also called under display camera (UDC).

Since the UPC camera is located below the display, the amount of light transmitted to the image sensor is less than that of a regular front camera module. Because of this structure, under-screen cameras do not produce very high-quality pictures and videos.

LG Innotek is developing a special lens called Freeform Optic to overcome the UPC limitations of not producing enough light. The patent states: “By using a Freeform Optic lens, the thickness of the peripheral lens can be controlled, thereby reducing optical system and optical module aberration (a phenomenon in which images are blurred due to the shape of the lens), as well as increasing the amount of light received. The image quality can be improved.”

Although LG Innotek has already begun development, the use of such displays in iPhones can only be expected after 2026, according to TheElec. Apple has reportedly already received UPC samples from other companies, but has rated their performance as unsatisfactory.

Apple is reportedly planning to place Face ID sensors under the screen before moving to UPC technology. Then the iPhone will have one round hole instead of the Dynamic Island.
