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.
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.
“The era of Samsung’s dominance in 10x zoom shots is over,” Galaxy S22 Ultra vs. Vivo X90 Pro+ compared
Reliable insider Ice Universe has posted some more comparison photos comparing the 10x zoom capabilities of the Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra and Vivo X90 Pro+.
“The era of Samsung’s dominance in 10x zoom shots is over,” Ice Universe said commenting on these shots, adding that he has taken hundreds of similar comparison photos that leave no doubt about the advantage of Vivo X90 Pro +.
Recall that the Vivo X90 Pro + received the main image sensor Sony IMX989 optical format 1 inch and Zeiss optics, consisting of eight elements. He also received a periscope module with a 64-megapixel OmniVision OV64B sensor, which provides 100x zoom. In addition, the Vivo X90 Pro + debuted a 50-megapixel Sony IMX758 sensor.
Yesterday, the same insider already published a comparison of these smartphones at night, stating a large gap between them.
Ice Universe was the first to accurately talk about the new trend of smartphones with waterfall screens, the notch in the iPhone X, the new design of the iPhone 14 and Samsung’s 200-megapixel image sensor. Recently, he was the first to accurately report that Redmi Note 12 Pro + will receive a 200-megapixel main camera. Exclusive information about new products is leaked to him by sources in the research and development department of the South Korean giant.
Mass riots in the “city of the iPhone” showed on video. iPhone 14 deliveries to one of the Apple stores in Latvia have stopped
Well-known insider Ben Geskin, who lives in Latvia, published a video that shows clashes between workers and the security service of the Foxconn plant.
He also reported that the supply of new iPhone 14 smartphones to one of the local Apple stores had completely stopped.
One of my friends just went to our local Apple Store and asked about orders for the iPhone 14. He was told that the supply of smartphones has completely stopped. New orders will take a very long time. The iPhone is good, but I feel most sorry for those people who are locked in the Foxconn factory.
According to Reuters, by the end of November, a further reduction in the supply of iPhone smartphones is expected. Tens of thousands of employees left iPhone City after receiving $1,400 each from Foxconn.
Ben Geskin regularly posts interesting concept art and renders based on rumors and various leaks. He was the first to publish accurate renderings of the iPhone X and iPhone 14, as well as a number of other new products from Apple, Samsung, Xiaomi and other companies.
