Insider # 9.08: Apple Tests Flexible Displays; Xiaomi Mi Mix 4; LG Increases iPhone Cameras; Redmi Note 8


Another collection of insights from the world of information is devoted to information related to the future production of bendable devices by Apple. We will also tell you about the news from the camp of Xiaomi and LG. At the end of the review, we will discuss the technical characteristics of the unannounced Redmi smartphones.

Apple likes BOE bendable displays

Over the past few months, there has been a significant increase in the number of electronics businesses that have announced plans to make foldable devices. Apple, which had previously remained silent, also indicated its interests in this direction.

Insider portal Nikkei Asian Review published information that Yabloko engineers showed attention to the products of BOE, which produces good OLED displays. This became possible in the light of the processes taking place in the American company aimed at reducing the final cost of products. The fact is that the components of the Korean supplier Samsung Display are too expensive for the company.

BOE currently makes LCDs for iPad and MacBook. However, the management of this company is more and more inclined to increase the rate of production of bendable OLED panels due to the growing demand for them.


The Chinese developer has repeatedly demonstrated the capabilities of its products. They meet all modern requirements.

From unnamed sources, it was reported that Apple experts are currently actively testing BOE panels at a Chinese company. In parallel with this, the Chinese are building another high-tech enterprise, which will begin to produce displays for the Americans.


Experts believe Apple's first flexible display product will see the light of day next year. With the choice of BOE products, she will have the opportunity to stock up on panels for the future. They are enough not only for assembling bendable smartphones, but also for repairing real devices.

Despite the trade war between the United States and China, one can understand from this example that Americans always choose what suits them. After all, this is the first experience of purchasing equipment from a Chinese company by such a tech giant as Apple.

The specifications of the flagship of Xiaomi have become known

Recently, data on the use of a 108 megapixel camera in the Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 model appeared on the Internet. Before the experts and users had time to digest this information, unconfirmed specifications of this smartphone were leaked to the network.

One of the insiders from China posted on a local social network data that the basis of the hardware filling of the device will be the Snapdragon 855 Plus processor. This is the most advanced chip at the moment. He also predicts that the device will have a 2K class display, 12 GB of RAM and 1 TB of internal memory.


The main camera of the product will consist of three lenses, the main one of which will receive a resolution of 108 megapixels. The other two will be equipped with 16 and 12-megapixel sensors. Frontalka, as expected, will receive a retractable mechanism.

The battery of the smartphone has a capacity of 4500 mAh. It relies on the functionality of fast and wireless charging. The product will also receive support for 5th generation networks and an NFC module.

LG Increases Camera Production

From online sources it became known that LG Innotek is increasing the production of cameras that will be equipped with the next generation iPhone. According to the iClarified resource, this company has almost quadrupled the number of specialists working in this direction.

Prior to that, there were rumors about the development by LG Innotek of a ToF-sensor with support for 3D scanning, which will begin to be installed in Yabloko smartphones in 2020. The number of lenses in the main camera modules will increase. There will be three instead of two. The price of such a module will surely rise.


At the moment LG Innotek is the main supplier of cameras for gadgets from the United States. However, their direct competitor, Sharp, is stepping on their heels. There are reports of other camera manufacturers seeking orders from Apple.

Information about processor model Redmi Note 8 has appeared

The Redmi Note 8 and Redmi Note 8 Pro smartphones will be announced in a week. But today there is information about the chipset on the basis of which these gadgets are built.
