OnePlus has released the stable (i.e. final) version of Android 13 for its flagship OnePlus 10 Pro. The company did it very quickly: the premiere of OxygenOS 13 based on Android 13 took place in August, the first beta version appeared a week later, and now, after only a month and a half, the company has released stable OxygenOS 13 for OnePlus 10 Pro. The firmware is currently only available to participants in the open beta testing program, but soon all OnePlus 10 Pro users will receive the corresponding over-the-air update.

In terms of the release speed of Android 13 for its flagship, OnePlus bypassed both Xiaomi and Samsung – the corresponding firmware for Xiaomi 12S and Samsung Galaxy S22 are still in beta versions. True, OnePlus is known for the fact that it often releases problematic firmware, and this time the situation may repeat itself.

As for the innovations in the final OxygenOS 13, there are a lot of them: performance is optimized, the HyperBoost GPA 4.0 “game engine” has appeared, which allows you to “stabilize the frame rate and balance performance and power consumption in key scenarios”, the Always-on Display mode has been optimized, security has been improved.

Goodbye 100 MP. Redmi K60 smartphones will receive a 50-megapixel sensor as part of the main camera

Goodbye 100 MP Redmi K60 smartphones will receive a 50

An insider, known on the Web under the nickname Digital Chat Station, published details about the camera of Redmi K60 smartphones. According to the leaker, the devices in the series will “upgrade” to a 50-megapixel sensor. It sounds like a downgrade in words, but in fact, the 50-megapixel sensor should provide higher quality photos and videos compared to the current 100-megapixel sensors.

The 100-megapixel sensor used in Redmi K50 Pro will be a thing of the past

What kind of sensor in question is not reported. Possible options are Sony IMX766 or Sony IMX707. The first is used in Xiaomi 12 (and in many other flagships of the current year), the second is used in Xiaomi 12 Pro. At the same time, this may be the only innovation of the Redmi K60 camera: the rest of the low-resolution sensors (8 and 2 megapixels) will remain, and there will most likely be no telephoto lens.

Digital Chat Station was previously the first to accurately announce the specifications and release dates of Redmi K30, K40, Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 11.

How much gold can you get from 200 smartphones? Chinese blogger conducted an experiment

How much gold can you get from 200 smartphones Chinese

Chinese Weibo user Chef Alchemist purchased 210 smartphone circuit boards to find out how much gold can be extracted from them. As it turned out, the cost of consumables for the experiment significantly exceeds the benefits that can be obtained as a result.

How much gold can you get from 200 smartphones?  Chinese blogger conducted an experiment

To extract the gold from the circuit boards, Chef Alchemist performed several lengthy chemical reactions. At the exit, the enthusiast got only 0.41 grams of gold. The cost of such a “pea” of precious metal is about $30 on the market. At the same time, the purchase of boards alone cost Chef Alchemist $315.

Although extracting gold from chips is completely unprofitable in artisanal conditions, My Drivers notes that, on the scale of a well-established enterprise, recycling electronic waste can be very profitable. So, according to Chinese journalists, out of 1 million cards from mobile phones, you can get about 16 tons of copper, 350 kg of silver, 34 kg of gold and 15 kg of the more expensive metal palladium.

This is what the hit Mate 50 Pro looks like

This week, sales of Huawei Mate 50 series phones started in China, and they were instantly sold out – both online and in regular retail stores (Huawei even came up with an original way to deal with the resale of phones). The most popular versions are Mate 50 RS Porsche Design and Mate 50 Pro, and just the latter poses below in the “dismantling” photo.

It turned out that the internals of the Mate 50, if you do not touch the camera unit, corresponds to the structure of the Mate 40 – as if these models were not separated by two years. The model is also disassembled in the usual sequence: it all starts with heating the rear panel.

Double-sided motherboard, clearly visible covers over the components

The motherboard is still double-sided, but, interestingly, most of the components on it are covered with metal covers. The Mate 50 itself does not support 5G, but there was a place for a 5G chip inside – with the entire component base soldered. On the one hand, this does not mean anything: Qualcomm could simply remove the corresponding modem from the board, and leave the strapping in place in order to save money. On the other hand, it is possible that the Mate 50 can still get a built-in 5G modem (the board already has everything for this), although the chances of this are small.

The source does not give a verdict on how difficult or easy it is to disassemble a smartphone, but, apparently, the Mate 50 Pro is no more difficult to repair than the Mate 40 Pro.
