There will be no new competitor for Qualcomm and MediaTek. Oppo decided not to create its own platform for smartphones
Oppo has changed its mind about creating its own single-chip system for smartphones. Oppo has reportedly shut down the related Zeku subsidiary.
Zeku was created just last year specifically to develop its own SoC. Oppo itself planned that the first such platform would appear as early as 2024.
Oppo decided to close this direction due to the current situation in the smartphone market. More specifically, the company is referring to “uncertainties in the global economy and the smartphone market.” At the same time, Oppo called the closure of Zeku a difficult decision. It should be noted that we are talking about creating platforms that could replace Qualcomm and MediaTek solutions. MariSilicon solutions, apparently, Oppo will continue to develop further.
Interestingly, the company’s employees were notified of its closure just a day before this very closure.
There is almost no such thing in any smartphone with a price of up to $500. Vivo S17 Pro got a TV camera
Vivo has introduced a mid-range smartphone S17 Pro, which stands out from the background of most similar devices and even many more expensive ones with the presence of a camera.
Here it’s a 12-megapixel Sony IMX663 sensor with only 2x zoom, but it’s better than nothing. Now even many base models of flagships are completely devoid of a camera, and here we are talking about a phone with a price of $435.
The main camera here relies on a 50-megapixel Sony IMX766V sensor, and there is also an 8-megapixel ultra-wide-angle camera. The smartphone is also equipped with a large 120Hz 6.78-inch AMOLED screen with a resolution of 2800 x 1260 pixels and a brightness of up to 1300 cd/m2 and PWM with a frequency of 2160 Hz.
The heart is the pre-top SoC Dimensity 8200, there are also 8 or 12 GB of RAM and 256 or 512 GB of flash memory. Of the rest, a 4600 mAh battery with 80-watt charging, Bluetooth 5.3, Wi-Fi 6 and a thickness of 7.46 mm with a weight of 188 g can be noted.
I bought Realme, and it looks almost like an iPhone. Budget Realme C53 declassified before the announcement
All the main parameters of the Realme C53 smartphone have appeared on the Web, which is very similar to the back of the iPhone Pro.
The ITHome resource claims that the smartphone appeared on the official website of the company, but does not provide links. At least on the Chinese and Indian sites, there is no such model yet.
The device received a large 6.74-inch 90-Hz IPS display with a waterdrop notch and a frequency of 560 cd / m2, Unisoc T612 SoC, 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of flash memory.
There is also a 5000 mAh battery with 33-watt charging, a 50 MP main camera, a microSD slot and a headphone jack. The thickness of the case is only 7.5 mm.
The iPhone 16 Pro and 16 Pro Max will grow, and the iPhone 17 and 17 Plus will finally get 120Hz screens. This is a reliable source
iPhone Pro smartphones in the next year’s lineup will grow strongly, and the younger iPhone 17 will finally get 120Hz screens.
Ross Young, an industry analyst and founder of research companies Display Supply Chain Consultants and DisplaySearch, confirmed his own data that the iPhone 16 Pro and 16 Pro Max will be larger than their predecessors. The former will receive a 6.27-inch display, while the latter will have a 6.86-inch panel. Probably Apple will refer to them as 6.3 and 6.9 inches respectively.
The screens will be 120Hz and still have the same Dynamic Island cutout. The iPhone 16 and 16 Plus models will retain the size of their predecessors and 60Hz screens.
In the iPhone 17 line, older models will receive the same panels as the iPhone 16 Pro and 16 Pro Max, but instead of the Dynamic Island cutout, they will only have a cutout for the front camera, and the Face ID module will be placed completely under the screen. But the iPhone 17 and 17 Plus models will retain Dynamic Island, but will finally get 120-Hz panels.
Through his work, Young has access to information related to the screens, so he often knows more than ordinary insiders. In particular, he talked about 120 Hz screens in the iPhone 12 Pro and 60 Hz screens in the younger devices of the line.
