According to TrendForce, this year Apple will install a 48-megapixel main camera in its smartphones. It is expected that such a camera will appear in the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max.
Apple has been using 12 megapixel image sensors in its smartphones for quite some time, but after this transition, the market share of smartphones with 12 megapixel cameras will drop to 15%.
The new 48-megapixel image sensor will reportedly support 8K video recording and will also be able to shoot at different resolutions depending on the scenario. A portrait or landscape may require high resolution, while a low-light photo may be 12 megapixels due to the merging of information from neighboring pixels.
Well-known Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has repeatedly pointed to the 48-megapixel main camera of the iPhone 14 Pro. He also said that a periscope camera with optical zoom will appear in the iPhone 15 in 2023.
Recall that earlier Ross Young, founder of research companies Display Supply Chain Consultants and DisplaySearch, said that the iPhone 14 Pro will receive round and oval cutouts. This information is actively discussed by users.
It will be much easier to transfer WhatsApp from Android smartphone to iPhone soon
The team behind the popular WhatsApp messenger is one step closer to being able to easily transfer chat history from an old smartphone to a new one without unnecessary complications and additional tools.
Recall that since the fall of 2021, WhatsApp has a tool for transferring chat history from iPhone to some Android-based smartphones, such as Samsung and Google Pixel.
Now in the beta version of WhatsApp for iOS there are references to the ability to transfer a chat from Android to iPhone.
The thematic resource WABetaInfo drew attention to the innovation. However, so far there are only “evidence” in the beta version, and the function itself does not work. Nevertheless, this gives hope for a relatively early launch – in the coming months.
An era is gone: the headphones from the iPhone kit will disappear even in France
Apple is no longer required to include EarPods with every iPhone sold in France. This was reported by the French thematic resource Consomac, citing explanations published by the French retailer Fnac.
Why is this news interesting not only to the French? The fact is that since the release of the iPhone 12 in 2020, Apple has removed EarPods and chargers from all its smartphones, explaining this step by caring for the environment. However, an exception was made – in France, the law required that the headphones be kept in the box. As a result, a special package was produced for France – a regular box with an iPhone was packed into another larger box with EarPods.
Now everything will change. As of January 24, Apple is no longer required to include headphones in the box with every iPhone, even in France. The new law was adopted at the end of 2021 and is also designed to reduce the impact of humanity on the environment.
Apple’s decision to slash the iPhone’s packaging has sparked controversy in other countries as well. For example, in Brazil, Apple was fined $2 million for not including a power adapter in the iPhone box.
Samsung starts accepting pre-orders for the Galaxy S22 tomorrow: the first buyers will receive discounts and bonuses
Samsung will open pre-orders for the new Galaxy S22, Galaxy S22+ and Galaxy S22 Ultra smartphones tomorrow morning. The company previously released a teaser for the upcoming Galaxy S22 Unpacked event and also hinted at a potential merger between its flagship Galaxy S and Note lines.
The source writes that there will be pleasant discounts and bonuses for those who have pre-ordered, which will be discussed tomorrow. Presumably, we are talking about smart watches and some interesting cases. Also, early buyers are expected to receive chargers, which are not expected in smartphone boxes.
Last year, the Galaxy S21 was unveiled on January 14th, and pre-orderers received a $60 bonus to spend at the Samsung Store on accessories. It was also announced that under the trade-in program, the discount could be up to $700.
Tae Moon Roh (TM Roh), head of Samsung’s mobile division, said that next month at Unpacked we will see “the most amazing Galaxy S series device that Samsung has ever made.”
The presentation of the Galaxy S22 should take place on February 8 or 9.
