“We have spearheaded the massive adoption of these devices to the market.” Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 and Galaxy Z Flip3 will compete with the iPhone this year



Samsung’s strategy to popularize foldable phones has proven successful, and the company now hopes to expand the segment further in 2022. The company previously said that sales of foldable smartphones should grow significantly next year, although the company did not provide specific numbers.

As SCMP writes with reference to the vice president of Samsung Kim Sung-Koo, the company is satisfied with the current results and is not going to stop.

We think we’ve been able to start and lead the massive adoption of foldable devices to the market.

The South Korean giant launched the third-generation Galaxy Z Fold and Galaxy Z Flip in August, pricing the small clamshell at $ 999 and pledging to do its best to popularize the devices. The company said it has sold one million of these devices in South Korea in a record time for a Samsung smartphone.

Samsung expects these devices to compete successfully with iPhones this coming holiday season. This year, the company ditched the Note device and instead focused on its foldable devices.

The most productive low-cost Android smartphones around the world. There are two well-deserved leaders and one new contender for the throne in the AnTuTu ranking



The AnTuTu benchmark team has published a ranking of mid-range Android smartphones for November 2021 for the international market. It differs markedly from the similar AnTuTu ranking in China.

According to AnTuTu experts, phones based on the Snapdragon 778G SoC continue to dominate the ranking of mid-range smartphones.

The most productive low-cost Android smartphones around the world.  There are two well-deserved leaders and one new contender for the throne in the AnTuTu ranking

For the fourth month in a row, Realme GT Master continues to reign in first place, gaining 537,231 points in November. As noted by AnTuTu, Naoto Fukasawa’s suitcase-style design has made this smartphone very recognizable and one of the hottest on the mobile phone market this year.

The second place is also taken by the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite for the fourth month in a row with 524,464 points. But the Honor 50 burst into third place with 516 915 points, which was not previously represented in the international ranking. It’s funny that a new generation series, Honor 60, has already been presented in China.

Then in the ranking are Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G NE (505 274), Huawei Nova 9 (499 078), Galaxy A52s 5G (498 705), Galaxy M52 5G (490 762), Huawei Nova 7 (457 964), Oppo Reno6 5G (429 879), Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite 5G (388 719).

Statistics collected from November 1 to November 30, 2021. The AnTuTu rankings use average, not the highest scores. For each smartphone, the results of at least 1000 tests were taken into account – models with fewer tests are not included in the rating.

Tim Cook negotiated a deal with China for $ 275 billion. Therefore, the iPhone became the best-selling smartphone in this country for the first time in six years.



The iPhone recently became the top-selling smartphone in China, the second largest market after the United States, for the first time in six years. The Information says the company owes much to CEO Tim Cook, who laid the foundation by secretly signing a deal worth more than $ 275 billion. The agreement said Apple would contribute to the development of China’s economy through investment, business deals and worker training.

Cook signed a five-year deal with the Chinese in 2016 to stop the regulatory flare-up that the Chinese government threatened Apple with. When the Apple leader came to China in 2016, it was reported that the reason for his visit was to find out why the Chinese government was making it difficult for Apple to work in China. For example, Apple was forced to shut down iBooks and iTunes Movies in the country and lost a lawsuit that prevented it from using the iPhone name on non-smartphone items.

Before Cook met with senior government officials, advocacy groups and members of the Communist Party, Apple’s revenue in China dropped 26%. After the publication of the financial report, the company’s shares fell by 10%. In addition to that, major hedge fund operators called for Cook’s removal, and investor Carl Icahn closed a huge position at Apple with a reported profit of $ 2 billion.

A leaked Apple document confirmed that Cook “personally lobbied officials” in China for Apple Pay, iCloud and the App Store. Cook allegedly signed a 1,250-word “memorandum of understanding” between Apple and China’s National Development and Reform Commission. Apple agreed to make concessions in exchange for some exceptions to the rule.

As part of the agreement, Apple agreed to help the Chinese create the most advanced manufacturing technologies, use more components from Chinese suppliers, sign deals with software firms in the country, make direct investments in Chinese technology companies, work on research with universities in China, train workers in the country, and help in other matters. In exchange for helping the Chinese, Apple received certain perks that other foreign companies could not hope for.

Apple has pledged to spend billions of dollars in the country to build new research centers, retail stores and work on projects based on renewable energy sources. Apple has pledged to spend over $ 275 billion in 10 years. If both parties have no objections, the contract will automatically renew for one more year – until May 2022.

The iPhone assembly line has been shut down for the first time in over a decade, according to Nikkei.
