Apple said that developers of iPhone apps distributed exclusively through the South Korean App Store can use third-party payment processors. The corporation set a condition for this – to inform Apple about all sales and pay a commission of 26% of all copies sold. Thus, a precedent has been set. After all, if regulators require the same in other countries, the company can meet them halfway.
Currently, Apple collects between 15% and 30% from the sale of applications in its store. The amount of the commission depends on whether the application contains a subscription.
It is noted that the new system will display a notification that says: “This application does not support the private and secure payment system of the App Store.” It also means that developers will have to deal with issues of returns, purchase history, subscription management, and so on. In addition, the company said that they have the right to check sales records in order to receive their commission.
This precedent increases the chances that a similar system will sooner or later appear in other markets. The European Union is currently discussing a similar bill at home in order to allow users to choose their own payment system.
Earlier in the EU, a historic decision was made that will force smartphone manufacturers to switch to a single USB-C standard.
6300 mAh, NFC, Android 12, iPhone 13-like camera and maximum dust and water resistance for only $110. Oukitel WP20 Pro announced, sales start on August 22
The shelf of secure smartphones has arrived. Oukitel WP20 Pro is touted as a very inexpensive and rather thin model for smartphones with maximum protection against dust and water: it is protected in accordance with the degrees of IP68, IP69K, and also meets the requirements of the American military standard MIL-STD-810H.
The hardware platform here is simple – MediaTek Helio A22, but Android 12 acts as the OS. The amount of RAM was 4 GB, flash memory – 64 GB. The screen is characterized by a diagonal of 5.93 inches and a resolution of 1440 x 720 pixels. The main camera copies the iPhone 13 module, but only visually – the sensors, of course, are different and much simpler (the resolution of the main one is 20 megapixels). The front camera uses a 5-megapixel sensor. Weight is 297 grams, dimensions – 166.2 x 81.2 x 15 mm.
The Oukitel WP20 Pro is available for just $110 during the global premier sale on AliExpress from August 22 to 26.
The best camera phone on the way? Huawei Mate 50 launched in mass production, it will be presented on September 7 along with smart watches Huawei Watch GT4
Huawei has started mass production of the new Mate 50 flagship smartphones, according to a Chinese resource that cites supply chain sources. Huawei has traditionally been very strong in terms of camera capabilities, and it is possible that some Mate 50 Pro will top the DxOMark rankings in the future. .
In general, four models are expected in the series: Mate 50e, Mate 50, Mate 50 Pro and Mate 50 RS. They will receive curved screens from local (Chinese) manufacturers and the recently introduced HarmonyOS 3.0. The younger model is credited with SoC Snapdragon 778G, all the rest – Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 without 5G support. However, some sources also talk about the use of Snapdragon 888 (also in the version with an LTE modem), so not everything is clear here yet.
The premiere of Huawei Mate 50 in China is expected on September 7, on the same day the company may introduce the Watch GT4 smart watch. There are no special details about this device: it is only reported that the watch will receive a larger screen than the current model, improved optical sensors and, of course, HarmonyOS 3.0.
Will there be more 200 megapixel cameras in smartphones? OmniVision OVB0A sensor introduced
There may be more smartphones with 200-megapixel sensors in the near future, and we are probably talking not only about expensive devices. OmniVision has introduced its second sensor of this class.
The OVB0A sensor has an optical format of 1/1.395″ or 1/1.4″ for simplicity. That is, it is quite large, but smaller than the same Samsung ISOCELL HP1, while it is exactly the same as ISOCELL HP3. The pixel size is 0.56 µm.
The sensor supports 16-cell binning, so that photos are obtained with a resolution of 12.5 megapixels. Video can be shot in 4K at 120 fps, 8K at 30 fps is also supported. The sensor should appear in smartphones in the fourth quarter.
OVB0A is OmniVision’s second 200MP sensor. The first was OVB0B in a larger optical format. It was introduced back in January, but in the end it did not appear in any smartphone. So, if OVB0A does not repeat the fate of the firstborn, then it will just become the first available on the market.
