Well-known blogger JerryRigEverything recently tested the latest Samsung Galaxy Z Fold4 for strength, now it’s the turn of the Flip4 model.
As with any modern foldable smartphone, it is important to know that the new screen is covered with a plastic film. Yes, the display has an ultra-thin protective glass, but a thick film is glued on top of it, which cannot be removed. This means that it is very easy to scratch such a film, which the author once again showed.
Also here it is worth paying attention to the test with sand. Flip4 coped with it very worthily: not only did the smartphone continue to work without problems, it also did not make any extraneous sounds, that is, sand did not get into the hinge or in very small quantities.
But the Flip4 bend test failed. The screen survived, but the hinge broke. The smartphone continued to work and fold, but was not kept in the folded state. By the way, Flip3 at one time passed this test.
Foldable smartphone shipments to grow by almost 70% in 2022
Analyst firm IDC has unveiled its new study, according to which global shipments of foldable phones in 2022 will reach 13.5 million units. If we take into account that 8.1 million such devices were shipped in 2021, then the growth will be 66.6%. Experts note that the growth of the foldable smartphone market is largely due to the emergence of Samsung’s Flip and Fold lines. In particular, user interest is fueled by the recent launch of the new Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Fold 4, according to IDC.
In the future, sales of folding devices will also grow: for example, next year the supply of such models is expected to increase by 55.1%. In 2026, foldable smartphone shipments will reach 41.5 million units, with a compound annual growth rate of 38.7% between 2021 and 2026.
Analysts say the commercial market is ripe for the use of foldables as two-in-one devices that can replace both a phone and a tablet. But while the foldable phone market is expected to grow by almost 70 percent this year, they won’t go mainstream just yet. According to experts, such models will remain niche and flagship premium devices.
A new cyber clock and an affordable foldable smartphone? Huawei is preparing the announcement of P50 Pocket New and Watch GT Cyber
Huawei may introduce a new foldable smartphone and a new smartwatch by the end of this month.
Firstly, the source says about the P50 Pocket New clamshell, that is, it will be the successor to the P50 Pocket. True, the name hints at the fact that it is more about updating than about a full-fledged new model. In particular, there were rumors that the new version will receive a Snapdragon 778G SoC against Snapdragon 888 in the current model, that is, the P50 Pocket New will be a simplified and probably cheaper model.
Secondly, we are waiting for some kind of Watch GT Cyber smart watch. There are no details here, and it’s pointless to guess, since the line (Watch GT) has existed for a long time, but we haven’t seen Cyber models before, so it can be either something new or just some new version of an existing model.
The announcement may take place on October 25 or close to this date.
If this smartphone is really worth $106, this is an incredible deal. Oppo A77s is equipped with Snapdragon 680, 8 GB of RAM and a 90-Hz screen
Oppo has introduced a budget smartphone A77s, which can compete with numerous inexpensive smartphones from Xiaomi, Realme and others. If the information about its price is correct.
So, the Oppo A77s is supposedly only $106. The problem is that the model has only appeared in Thailand so far, and the price is not indicated on the Oppo website. The official sellers of this device in this country, instead of the correct price, are still indicating a plug, so we have data on $106 only from third-party sources.
If the price is correct, the device turns out to be very worthy, since there is a 90-Hz screen, a large battery, and a Qualcomm platform.
Powered by Snapdragon 680, the smartphone is also equipped with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of flash memory. The screen size is 6.56 inches at HD+ resolution. From the rest, you can select a 50-megapixel main camera and a 5000 mAh battery with 33-watt charging.
