This Insider Edition will focus on devices developed by OPRO and OnePlus. We will also discuss the possibilities of augmented reality glasses that are being designed by Huawei.
Oppo's gadget will be equipped with a functional camera
One of the most successful smartphones of the company Oppo Reno 10x Zoom Edition was equipped with a camera with a periscope, which allowed the company to raise the level of development in this direction. The specialists of this enterprise have repeatedly stated that there are many opportunities for improving the cameras of mobile devices.
At the end of August, the company will launch the Oppo Reno 2 model in the series. This information was published on the company's Twitter account. It was also reported that the novelty has four sensors of the main camera and 20x zoom.
The selfie device will have a retractable shark fin form factor.
Experts suggest that Oppo Reno 2 will have a hybrid 20x zoom. This follows from the characteristics of the camera installed on the first generation product. There she was periscopic with a sixfold magnification. In addition, the device had a 10x hybrid and 60x digital zoom. Therefore, it is unlikely that a more modern device will receive a lower hybrid zoom ratio.
Chinese developers face a daunting task. To achieve the above parameter, they need to create a product that provides a high level of built-in zoom functionality as well as high quality image processing.
It is already known that initially the new device will start selling in India, and then it is expected to be released in other countries. The same practice was with the first generation gadget.
At the moment there is no information about the technical characteristics of the new cameras. Most likely, analogs of those that were installed in the Oppo Reno 10x Zoom Edition are used here. The manufacturer almost certainly uses standard and ultra-wide lenses. Even in the industry, macro cameras and depth sensors are often used as the fourth lens. Therefore, there is a likelihood of maintaining this approach in the case of the Oppo Reno 2.
If insiders have correctly calculated the steps of the company, then we should expect in this series the presence of a flagship model and a less advanced modification with upper middle characteristics. Y
OnePlus will launch a 5G smartphone
Last week, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau gave an interview to the British Financial Times, in which he confirmed that his firm's engineers are developing a new 5G smartphone. The head of the enterprise did not disclose the name of the model and its data.
Before that, leaks appeared on the network about the production of the T-version of the mobile device by the company. The use of such a modification is a step previously used by the firm. This has been practiced with the OnePlus 3, OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 6.
The version with the letter T in the name usually comes out some time after the start of sales of the flagship brand. It uses minor updates, fixes problems that were discovered during the operation of the flagship device.
Most likely in 2019, the company's engineers will carry out some work with the OnePlus 7 Pro camera, since this device did not compete with the flagships of other brands in the field of photo and video capabilities. Experts predict the appearance of the OnePlus 7T ToF sensor. It helps make portraits more interesting.
Other data indicate the possible use of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus chip as the main processor in this smartphone. This is the most advanced chipset currently used in Android devices. It can significantly improve performance, especially for gaming devices.
In conclusion, I would like to add that OnePlus is one of the few that has plans to release a second 5G smartphone in 2019. So far, only the Korean tech giant Samsung has taken this step, having recently presented the Galaxy Note 10 5G. There is also information that another Chinese company, Xiaomi, has such a manufacturing process. Its second gadget, supporting next generation networks, is due out later this year.
Recall that the main advantage of fifth-generation networks is their high data processing speed, significantly exceeding that of 4G. This allows, for example, to download a series in a short amount of time.
Huawei Announces Augmented Reality Glasses Soon
From the leaks it became known that Huawei will present augmented reality glasses at IFA 2019. They will be shown instead of the flexible Mate X.
This became possible due to the fact that products such as Google Glass and Microsoft Hololens remain corporate and most of the users do not have access to them.
The Korean company Gentle Monster is taking part in the development of the glasses of the Chinese tech giant. The goal of both manufacturers is to create a device that is comfortable in everyday use. A voice assistant will assist in working with it. The glasses allow you to make calls without using your smartphone. It is also known that they are not afraid of water and dust, due to their protection from harmful environmental factors.
