This is the first summer insider's story about OPPO's development of a smartphone with a special camera. We will also tell you about the news from Apple and Huawei. Finally, let's discuss the pricing data for the Galaxy M40.
OPPO has created an unusual form factor camera for a smartphone
In 2013, the ORRO company conceived to produce a device equipped with a camera, the device of which was unusual for its time. It had to rotate around its axis. This design would allow it to be used as both a main and a front camera.
Recently it became known that the company has not forgotten about its previous developments and plans to continue them, making some improvements. This is confirmed by documents leaked from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).
It can be seen that this is a device with thin frames. In its upper part there is a camera on an oval platform. There, most likely, they placed a flash and sensors.
When not in operation, the platform leans back and sinks into the body. In this position, the camera can be used as the main one. When it is used as a front camera, the platform rotates and extends for shooting.
So far nothing is known about the company's plans in this direction. It is not yet clear what a smartphone with such a camera will look like.
Possible changes to the iPhone XR (2019) equipment have become known
Many Apple fans are looking forward to this year's iPhone XR updates. It became known that the company's specialists are planning to add another lens for the main camera, pump over the hardware stuffing and make a wider color gamut of bodies.
The dimensions of the device display and its cutouts will remain the same.
IndiaShopps recently revealed that the 2019 iPhone XR will be available in black, gold, gray and red. Previously, these gadgets were already produced in red, but their circulation was limited. iPhone XS and XS Max did not have this color at all.
New software technology from Huawei
Not so long ago, a conference was held dedicated to the announcement of the HONOR 20 series of smartphones, but to which the head of the brand Zhao Ming said that the Ark compiler stands out among other presented software innovations. Its implementation is akin to Google's operational technology revolution.
This will give an impetus to the development of Android, which will become comparable to Apple iOS and even surpass it in some way.
Zhao Ming also said that after the software processing was performed, the application execution efficiency increased by almost 29%, the system speed by 24%, and the response rate by 44%. All third-party applications now run more than 60% faster.
The official said that this update is very large. The Chinese team has done a good job and expects the Android system to outperform iOS. After going through the optimization of the HONOR 20 series with the help of Ark, the company has an experience that can be compared with that of Apple.
However, in some respects the new software is better than iOS.
Experts do not exclude that the future operating system from Huawei will be based on this software technology. There are no details about her yet.
