World’s first USB-C iPhone sold on eBay for $ 86,000

An eBay auction ended selling a modified version of the iPhone X with a fully functional USB-C port. Swiss Federal Polytechnic student Ken Pillonel called the lot the world’s first USB-C iPhone and a great collection for any Apple fan.

The buyer received an iPhone X with 64GB of storage, as well as a 30-minute consultation with Ken Pillonel in case he had any questions about the hardware. Pillonel said the modified iPhone X is “just a prototype” and does not guarantee that it will work properly in certain scenarios. The purchaser should not restore, update the system, or erase data from the device, as this may damage the device.

For everyone else, the creator of the modification published an instruction in which he clearly showed how you can remake your own smartphone in this way. The entire project is also described in a detailed instruction on GitHub for those who decide to modify the iPhone on their own and install a USB-C connector into it.

Ken Pillonel added that he will continue to experiment and hinted at adding a USB-C connector to the AirPods.

In this market, Samsung smartphones accounted for half of all sales. The company’s achievement in Vietnam contrasts with other brands

Samsung has been the leader in the smartphone market for many years, but its positions vary greatly from country to country. As it turned out, in Vietnam, Samsung crushed half of the market.

At the end of the third quarter, the Korean giant took 49% of the Vietnamese market, and a year ago the company’s share was 36%. At the same time, almost all other companies from the top five recorded a decrease in their market shares.

As you can see, only Vivo was able to increase its share from 6% to 8%, but Oppo, Xiaomi and Realme cannot boast of this. At the same time, the market as a whole sank by 28%, so against this background Samsung’s achievement is even more significant.

Budget smartphones helped the company achieve such indicators. The Galaxy A12, A22 and A03s were the top-selling models in Vietnam. By the way, Galaxy A12, as we already know, was the second most popular worldwide this year.

Which smartphone became the most popular in 2021? The answer could have been predicted a year ago

Despite the fact that there is still a little more than a month before the end of the year, IDC analysts have already summed up the results of the year at least in relation to the best-selling smartphones.

The authors gave a list of five of the most popular devices, and four of them are from Apple.

The leader is quite expectedly turned out to be the iPhone 12. Recall that last year the best-selling smartphone was the iPhone 11, and before it the iPhone XR. The iPhone 11, as you can see, still sells very well, but the much more expensive last-generation Apple flagships also hit the top.

The only smartphone not from the Apple camp in the top five was the budget Samsung Galaxy A12. And that’s to be expected as well, as the base models of the Galaxy A line have also consistently been on top-selling device lists in recent years. True, there were usually Galaxy A5x there, but at least we don’t see Galaxy A52 in this list.

The source has published high-quality renders of the Honor 60 and Honor 60 Pro smartphones, which will debut on December 1st. Judging by these images, the external difference between the older model and the younger one will be the screen bent on all four sides, but the rest of the devices are the same.

Interestingly, unlike the Honor 50, the main cameras have exactly three sensors – no quad cameras. Perhaps optical stabilization will appear, and the sensors themselves will become larger. The resolution of the main sensor will be 108 megapixels in both cases. The front cameras will use 50-megapixel sensors.
