The latest September inside story will tell about the systems being tested by several USA banks, which will make it possible to abandon payment terminals. We will also inform you about the prospects of the foldable clamshell from Motorola and the new flagship device from Realme. In conclusion, let's discuss the technical equipment of the OPPO K5.
It is possible that banks in our country will soon abandon payment terminals
It became known that a number of large banks in USA are testing systems that make it possible to stop using bulky terminals for contactless payments. According to Izvestia, the capabilities of smartphones and tablets can be used for this. The equipment allows these gadgets to act as POS terminals.
For this purpose, at the initial stage, the interested person should send an application to the banking institution about the desire to conclude an acquiring agreement with him. After that, you need to install a special banking application and you can work.
The source expresses the opinion that this type of payment will eventually become widespread among small and medium-sized businesses, as an alternative to the currently existing methods of financial transactions.
The payment process is as follows. The seller enters the required amount in the application, and the buyer applies a bank card with NFC or a device that supports Apple Pay, Samsung Pay or Google Pay to his smartphone. This can be a tablet, smart watch, phone and any similar gadget.
According to Izvestia, experts in this industry have already appreciated the benefits of the new scheme. It will reduce business costs, but prices for goods will remain at the same level. It is known that representative offices of such banks as FK Otkrytie, Raiffeisenbank and Tinkoff are already ready for such a contactless method of transactions. The technology is at the testing stage at VTB and Promsvyazbank.
Not everyone knows that at the end of last year Sberbank has already launched a similar service together with Mastercard.
Motorola announces foldable clamshell at the end of the year
For more than six months, rumors about the imminent release of the foldable Motorola RAZR device have been circulating on the network. In addition to the large internal display, the product will receive another one on the outside, but smaller.
Through the efforts of the CNET portal, the timing of the announcement of this gadget became known. It is expected to be presented later this year. Before that, the imminent release of such a device was reported from the Lenovo camp, but then information on this matter ceased to come from there.
The alleged characteristics of the new smartphone were reported on the Internet. Its release was just around the corner, but here the first foldable product from Samsung - Galaxy Fold made its adjustments. Based on the testers' comments, Motorola began work on fixing the design flaws.
The Motorola RAZR is expected to be equipped with an eight-core Snapdragon 710 processor with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. The presence of a battery of modest capacity - 2730 mAh is surprising. The device will receive a main 6.2-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2142x876 pixels, as well as an additional screen with a resolution of 800x600 pixels. It will be needed to display notifications.
The smartphone is expected to cost € 1,500 in Europe and $ 1,500 US in America.
Realme is developing a new flagship smartphone
Currently, the flagship of Realme is the XT model, equipped with a 64MP main camera. All other technical equipment of this device cannot be considered flagship. The devices from the middle price segment are now equipped with the same equipment.
Therefore, in the camp of this manufacturer, they thought about developing a smartphone with a more powerful filling. This is indirectly confirmed by references to the device from Realme in the Bluetooth SIG database and the Wi-Fi regulator.
It says that the Realme RMX1931 gadget was tested. The annotation says it is powered by a 2.84GHz processor. Snapdragon 855 has similar parameters.
It is also known that the product received a 6.55-inch display with Full HD + resolution, a 1950 mAh battery. Most likely, the latest information is incorrect.
When the flagship is announced and its pricing is still unknown.
OPPO K5 will support 40W fast charging
A teaser from OPPO has appeared on the network, revealing the date of the announcement of the new K5 smartphone. It will take place on October 10. It is already known that the device will be equipped with a main camera with a block of four sensors. The main one here has a resolution of 64 megapixels.
The core of the hardware filling of the product will be a Snapdragon 730G processor with a clock frequency of 2.2 GHz. It is designed using an 8nm process technology.
A 4000 mAh battery will be responsible for the autonomy of the gadget, supporting fast charging of the new generation VOOC 4.0. It is 40% more powerful than the previous design.
Specialists of the manufacturing company say that the technical capabilities of OPPO K5 will improve the rendering of graphics in games by 15%. This is when compared with analogs of the previous generation.
