This week's latest insider show features three news items related to smartphones. First, we will discuss the renders of the iPhone 12 Pro Max that appeared on the network and the data on the development of the 192 megapixel camera. Then let's talk about the nuances of the technical equipment of the device from Redmi. In the end, we will learn about the intentions of the Taiwanese Semiconductor Manufacturing Company, which announced the imminent launch of 5-nanometer processors.
iPhone 12 Pro Max mockup revealed online
Popular blogger and YouTube channel author EverythingApplePro recently released a batch of new information about the yet to be announced iPhone 12 Pro Max. First, he posted images of a smartphone on his page, and then showed a mock-up of the product.
It is known that he received information from the well-known insider Max Weinbach, who previously often contributed to the appearance of numerous leaks, many of which were later confirmed.
Weinbach announced that he became the owner of drawings and renders of the 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max. The specialist said that the appearance of the novelty may still change shortly before the release.
However, the overall form factor of the device is likely to remain the same as in common images.
If you believe these figures, the iPhone 12 Pro Max will strongly resemble the iPad Pro, which has the same angular body. It differs from the previous iPhone 11 Pro Max in the thickness of the body, which has decreased and the large protrusion of the camera. Its triple unit also received LiDAR, the same as in the company's new tablets.
The device is also equipped with a reduced cutout for the front camera and the Face ID system.
Now no one knows when the iPhone 12 lineup will be announced. In a long-standing tradition, Apple holds events every September. This year, all dates have shifted due to the coronavirus pandemic disrupting the supply and production chain.
An insider posted a screenshot of a smartphone with a 192 MP camera
Not so long ago smartphones with cameras with a resolution of 108 megapixels went on sale, when information about a device with a 192 megapixel sensor appeared. The source of the new leak was Indian insider Sudanshu Ambhor. He posted on his Twitter page a snapshot of a smartphone display with such a sensor.
From the image you can understand that it belongs to the apparatus of the company ORRO. It is not difficult even to make out its properties. The photograph has a resolution of 12,000 x 16,000 pixels. This is comparable to the 192MP sensor.
Interestingly, the image size is 35.8 MB.
The main details of the camera equipment, including the sensor manufacturer, remained unknown. We only know the value of its aperture - (f / 1.7).
The insider believes that in this case we are talking about one of the devices of the realme company, which is part of the ORRO ecosystem. This is confirmed by the interface used, which is similar to a number of devices from this Chinese manufacturer.
Due to the fact that the status bar in the screenshot is shifted, we can conclude that the smartphone has a dual front camera embedded in the screen. Nothing is known about the date of its announcement, specifications and prices yet.
Another inexpensive Redmi smartphone certified in China
A week ago, the Redmi Note 9 Pro Max was presented. However, the company is not going to stop there. It became known about the TENAA certification of the more affordable Redmi model. This means that this product will be announced soon.
It appeared on the regulator's website under the number M2003J15SC. Among the characteristics of the new items are: 6.53-inch display with a resolution of 2340x1080 pixels, a battery with a capacity of 4920 mAh. The size of its case is also indicated: 162.3 x 77.2 x 8.9 mm and weight equal to 198 grams.
Recently, this information was updated by the network informant Digital Chat Station. He claims that the gadget will be equipped with support for fast charging with a power of up to 22.5 W, a MediaTek Helio G80 processor operating at 2.0 Hz, a 13-megapixel selfie camera and a 48-megapixel main camera sensor.
Also, an insider suggested that we are talking about Redmi Note 9 or Redmi 9 models capable of working in 4G / LTE networks. Before that, there were mentions of them on the net.
There is no data yet on the specifications and timing of the announcement of the new product.
Taiwanese Semiconductor Manufacturing Company will soon launch two of the world's most productive chipsets
On April 16, TSMC announced that it would begin mass production of chips based on the 5-nanometer process technology by summer. These will be HUAWEI Kirin 1020 and Apple A14 with a clock speed of 3.1 GHz.
The technology behind the production of these chips provides 1.8 times the transistor density in the Cortex-A72 cores. This will increase operating speed by 15% and reduce power consumption by 30% compared to the previous generation CPU.
Earlier rumors circulated that HUAWEI would skip the A77 generation and start using the new Cortex-A78 cores. The Kirin 1020 is slated to debut in the second quarter of this year alongside the Mate 40 range.
In addition, TSMC announced an increase in its profits in 2020. Its size has grown by 42% compared to the same period last year.
