Canalys analysts summed up the results of the second quarter of 2022 in the smartphone market. The market sank 9% during this period.
In total, global shipments fell to 287 million devices, and this is the lowest figure in the last two years. Samsung remains the leader with a share of 21% and 61.8 million smartphones sold. At the same time, the company increased sales by 6%, which is very good against the backdrop of a falling market.
Apple increased shipments even more – by 8%, to 49.5 million smartphones, occupying 17% of the market. Xiaomi closes the top three with 39.6 million smartphones sold and a 14% share. Only here sales of Xiaomi collapsed by 25%.
They also fell significantly for the rest of the companies in the top five: Oppo and Vivo. Deliveries sank by 22% and 19%, respectively, to 27.3 and 25.4 million units. The share of other companies was 29%, and the total sales of all companies outside the top five sank by 10%.
Thus, in general, first of all, Samsung and Apple pulled over buyers in a falling market.
Android 13 fixes over 150 bugs on Pixel smartphones
Recently, Google unexpectedly released the final version of the Android 13 OS, which became available for Pixel smartphones. And, it seems, the owners of such devices should install it now.
It turned out that in Android 13, the search giant fixed a huge number of bugs that existed in Pixel smartphones. More specifically, the list includes 151 issues that Google has fixed in the update.
In particular, the Pixel 6 and 6 Pro have a much better in-display fingerprint scanner, the slowness of which many have complained about. We also fixed the issue with double-tap to wake up the screen, Always-On Display, auto-brightness, auto-rotate the screen, and more. Users of the new Pixels say that smartphones have simply become faster and more stable.
As a reminder, Android 13 is available for Google models starting with the Pixel 4 line.
A full-fledged WhatsApp client for Windows has finally been released. It can run in the background and doesn’t need to sync with your phone
What Viber and Telegram have had for a long time has finally appeared in WhatsApp: after a long period of beta testing, the messenger client for Windows has finally been released. The app is available for download from the Microsoft Store.
Now you do not need to run WhatsApp in a browser – you can download the application to your mobile computer or PC – and communicate in the format familiar to users of other instant messengers. The Windows WhatsApp client runs in the background and does not need to be synchronized with your phone. Later, the developers promise to release a version for macOS.
The cameras of the iPhone X, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro and the upcoming iPhone 14 Pro were compared in a general image
Less than a month is left before the release of the iPhone 14 series, while insiders leaked the design of the smartphone a long time ago, and the exact drawings that fell into the hands of accessory manufacturers made it possible to create three-dimensional models of new devices.
The main innovation of the iPhone 14 Pro and iPhone 14 Pro Max will be new screens that will abandon the bangs that appeared in the iPhone X and get two small holes. We have already published a comparison of the screens of the iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro.
However, new smartphones will also receive once again an enlarged main camera unit. This time, it will not only be large in area, but also protrude more strongly above the surface of the rear panel (by as much as 4.17 mm).
The source published a comparison of the main camera modules of five generations of Apple smartphones: iPhone X, iPhone 11 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 13 Pro and the upcoming iPhone 14 Pro.
Recall that the size of the main camera block of the iPhone 14 Pro will be increased, in particular, due to the use of a new 48-megapixel camera.
According to rumors, new smartphones will be presented on September 7th.
