Perhaps we will surprise someone now, but not only smartphones are still popular in this world, but also good old push-button phones. We were even a little surprised that there are quite a lot of them on sale, and not piece lots.
And here even there are segment leaders, many recognizable brands and a struggle for superiority in the market. A lot of these phones are shipped in the world. But news reports about this market are so rare that it seems like the first time it happened. In general, let’s take a look at the leaders of this market and how well push-button dialers are selling and where they are popular.
The research organization Counterpoint Research has calculated, looked and told us that:
These phones are most popular in third world countries. And the biggest key phone manufacturers are iTel, HMD Global (Nokia), Samsung, Tecno, and Lava. The South Korean giant was able to unload as many as 7.4 million phones in the third quarter of this year and holds 10% of the total market. Tecno has done about the same, by the way. The leader here is iTel, which occupies 24% of the total market. And Nokia is in second place with 14% of the market. In just the third quarter, these guys shipped a whopping 74 million phones. They are best sold in Africa and the Middle East. But with all this, sales overall were down 17% from last year.
Stylish, original and surprisingly inexpensive. Nothing Phone (1) is credited with a price of around $390
In a couple of weeks there will be a presentation of the first smartphone company Nothing, which will be released under the name Nothing Phone (1). Now there is information that it will be a fairly affordable device.
A version with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of flash memory, according to rumors, should go on sale for about $ 390. The 8/256 GB version will cost around $405, while the 12/256 GB version will cost $455.
Nothing Phone (1) will receive a FullHD + OLED screen with support for a refresh rate of 120 Hz. It will be built on the basis of a Snapdragon 778G + single-chip system. The main camera will be equipped with image sensors with a resolution of 50 and 16 megapixels, the front camera will be 16 megapixels. The battery capacity will be 4500 mAh, it will support 45-watt charging.
The smartphone will run on the Android 12 operating system with the Nothing OS shell and proprietary Glyph Interface installed.
165 Hz, 18 GB of RAM, a huge screen, a huge battery and an unusual design. Asus ROG Phone 6 images revealed
The gaming smartphone Asus ROG Phone 6 will be presented on July 5, but today multiple images of the device have appeared on the Web.
As you can see, the design will still be very unusual with many different elements and accents, but this is normal for a gaming smartphone. The camera module will change somewhat, although in general Asus is clearly not trying to make the new model radically different from the previous one.
The renders also show a new version of the proprietary AeroActive Cooler 6, which can also act as a stand, as well as a Devilcase Guardian Lite Plus case.
The smartphone is credited with SoC Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1, a 165-Hz AMOLED display with a diagonal of 6.78 inches, 18 GB of RAM and a 5850 mAh battery with 65-watt charging.
Should HTC have gone back to making smartphones? HTC Desire 22 Pro unveiled for $405 and not the most impressive specs
HTC has been intriguing over the past few weeks with a flagship smartphone with a focus on virtual and augmented reality technologies, but in fact it turned out to be the $405 HTC Desire 22 Pro, built on the Snapdragon 695. It’s certainly not a flagship, but the price is considerable.
HTC Desire 22 Pro received a screen with a diagonal of 6.6 inches, Full HD + resolution and a frame rate of 120 Hz, as well as a triple main camera with sensors with a resolution of 64, 13 and 5 MP. Judging by the picture, there is no periscope module, which means that the “optical zoom” will be achieved due to the difference in focal lengths of different lenses.
In the configuration of the device, there is also protection in accordance with the degree of IP67 (and this is really not often found in mid-range models), a 4520 mAh battery (both wireless and reverse wireless charging are supported), pre-installed Android 12. The configuration is one – with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of flash memory.
