Insider # 3.11: Prospects for Apple and Valve Cooperation; foldable ORRO plate; Samsung Galaxy A51; Blackview A80 Pro


In this insider's roundup, we're looking at an augmented reality headset that Apple and Valve will be developing. We will also talk about a new patent from OPRO, where they conceived to create a bendable tablet. In conclusion, let's discuss the features of the Samsung Galaxy A51 and Blackview A80 Pro.

Two companies will develop a new device

Apple is working with video game maker Valve on an augmented reality headset.

The news comes from a source at DigiTimes, who said that Head-mounted AR displays will appear in the Yabloko range in the second half of next year.


It is also known about the collaboration of the US team with Quanta Computer and Pegatron. Allegedly, the assembly of products is carried out jointly.

No details about the design of the new product, its capabilities and functionality have been announced.

Recently, cases of such information have become more frequent. They are not confirmed by Apple representatives, but the fact of their regularity speaks for itself. The likelihood that the company conducts such research is quite high.

At the beginning of last month, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo indicated in one of his reports that the US company is jointly developing with several brands in order to establish the production of AR glasses. Who exactly Apple is working with was not specified.

Valve is known to many as the company that controls Steam and developed the Half-Life series of games. However, not everyone knows that she has her own Valve Index headset. Its announcement took place in May this year.

Prior to this, the company was involved in similar joint projects with HTC.

It is now clear that a more promising direction is the creation of non-virtual headsets, about augmented reality. The entire industry is moving towards this. The data confirms the fact that Google has dropped further support for its Daydream VR headset. This is despite its significant popularity among users.

New ORRO Patent

Most of the currently produced tablets have significant external similarity. All the differences lie in their technical equipment and size. However, the latest data from the ORRO camp suggests a new trend may be emerging.

The OPRO patent for the development of a foldable tablet has been revealed. Everything seems to be clear, but there is an interesting nuance. The device can be installed in its own smartphone case.


Something similar was previously suggested when creating ASUS PadFone. The difference of the new design is that it allows the apparatus to be folded in half, making it compact. This will facilitate the transportation of the product and increase its mobility.

The document also says that the tablet display is an enlarged smartphone screen. The latter is then installed in one of the halves of the product. This allows it to be fixed securely.

It is also noted that a bendable tablet can actually be used without a smartphone, but its functionality suffers. The gadget received its own battery, which increases the power supply of the tandem.

Nothing has been announced about the nuances of technical equipment, the name, release dates and the release date of the new item.

Approximate dates for the Galaxy A51 announcement have been announced

The well-known Indian insider Ashan Agarwal claims that he knows information about the release date of the Samsung Galaxy A51 smartphone. This will take place in the first quarter of 2020.

Some data on the technical equipment of this device have already been published. It will be equipped with a 6.5-inch Super AMOLED display, Android 9 Pie operating system with One UI 2.0 shell and a 4000 mAh battery.


The photo capabilities of the device are represented by the main camera with four sensors and a 32 megapixel front camera.

Galaxy A51 is built on the platform of the Exynos 9611 chip with 4 GB of RAM and 128/256 GB of internal memory. He got a fingerprint scanner built into his display, a USB Type-C port, and a 3.5mm audio jack. Cases of the device will be available in silver, black or blue colors.

When the gadget is not announced, its estimated cost will be $ 300. Facebook has published renderings of the new Blackview device The head of Blackview on his Facebook page posted several images of his company's yet to be announced product - Blackview A80 Pro.


One of the pictures shows that the product will receive a main camera unit consisting of four sensors. An LED flash was placed next to it. Also on the back is a fingerprint scanner.

It is known that the device will have one modification (there is no data on it), the housings are red and black.

The announcement of the device will take place this month. Since Blackview has made a name for itself in the development of secure mobile devices, it is possible that this new product will become similar. It will almost certainly meet one of the "armored" popular IP standards or the military MIL-STD-810.
