In this Insider, we'll be discussing news that only applies to smartphones. First, let's talk about new data related to the iPhone 13 line. Then we'll talk about the features of the equipment of two new products from Chinese manufacturers: the inexpensive OnePlus Z and the expected Redmi 9. At the end of the review, we will give information about the new patent of the Korean company Samsung, the engineers who are going to develop a foldable clamshell in the form letters Z.
iPhone 13 will not have borders and cutouts
In the middle of autumn this year, the American Apple should present the iPhone 12. Despite the fact that before the announcement of the new series of devices, data on the iPhone 13 has already begun to appear. The Japanese edition of Mac Otakara claims that the photos of the layouts that have appeared on the network have directly related to the American novelty of 2021.
The image shows a smartphone with a 5.5-inch display without bezels and cutouts. According to Japanese journalists, the new device will receive a sub-screen front camera. For this, allegedly, it uses the Samsung Under Sensor technology.
It is possible that the models will lack True Depth functionality. This will result in a denial of face authentication. However, fans of the brand should not be upset about this, because then the manufacturer will be able to use Touch ID, which is built into the screen.
It is possible that the iPhone 13 displays will receive a Super Retina XDR matrix with thin bezels.
These images also provide a first impression of the rear panel of new products. There is a cutout for the camera block, which consists of five sensors and an LED flash.
The American manufacturer is currently testing a new module, but it is not yet ready for commissioning. Therefore, it is natural to assume that this block of cameras will be installed in the iPhone 13.
Also on the layout you can see a cutout resembling a USB-C connector. However, this contradicts information from another source, which claims that Apple plans to completely eliminate physical connectors and ports.
Insiders have declassified the date of the announcement of OnePlus Z
Not so long ago, the head of OnePlus spoke about the imminent announcement of a new smartphone. Immediately after that, the network began to receive information about the new product.
Insiders claim that the budget device OnePlus Z will be shown in the second decade of July. The basis of its hardware filling will be the Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G chipset. It also became known about the presence of two memory configurations: 8/128 GB and 12/256 GB. The device will be equipped with a 6.5-inch AMOLED screen with a refresh rate of 90 Hz.
The photo capabilities of the smartphone will be presented by the front and main cameras. The latter will receive three sensors with a resolution of 48.12 and 13 megapixels and laser autofocus.
To ensure autonomous operation, the device will receive a 4000 mAh battery with support for fast charger up to 30 W. A USB Type-C port is provided for charging.
The device will enter the market with proprietary firmware OxygenOS 10 based on Android 10. Nothing has been reported about its cost, but it is known that the smartphone will be sold in black, white and blue cases.
All characteristics of Redmi 9 have become known
Network informants talked about the features of the equipment of the yet unannounced smartphone Redmi 9.
The device looks like last year's Redmi Note 8 Pro. On its front panel there is a teardrop-shaped cutout for a selfie camera. The main camera consists of four sensors with a resolution of 13 + 8 + 5 + 2 MP. It is visually highlighted in a circle.
Insiders claim that Redmi 9 will be equipped with a 6.53-inch display with Full HD + resolution, an eight-core MediaTek Helio G80 processor, 2/3/4 GB of RAM, a 34/64 GB drive, a 5020 mAh battery, USB connectors Type-C and 3.5mm, infrared for controlling home appliances and an additional microphone for noise canceling.
When the smartphone will be shown, it is not officially announced, but it is assumed that it will happen soon. The model will cost around $ 140 - $ 150.
Samsung has come up with a new foldable smartphone form factor
Korean Samsung engineers never tire of coming up with new ways to implement foldable devices. Recently, data appeared on the network about a new Samsung patent describing a Z-shaped clamshell with an extraordinary design.
The device will be equipped with two hinges. Photos and an accompanying note to the latest Korean patent have appeared in the USPTO database. According to these documents, the top of the gadget will fold back and the back will fold forward.
The diagrams do not contain data on connectors, cameras and buttons. Experts suggest that the patent application was filed by Samsung Display, not Samsung Electronics. Only after all the nuances have been approved, the firm's specialists will create its first exact prototype.
It is also not clear what will happen to the front camera of the device. It can be subscreen. It is possible that the main sensors will be used as such, by bending one of the parts of the apparatus.
It is stated that the device with such a form factor will be announced in the second half of this year. Nothing has been announced about its name or cost.
