In the tenth issue of the April insider's insights, we will tell you about the nuances of the technical equipment of the Redmi smartphone. His imminent exit became known from the next leak. Then we will discuss information regarding the creation of a high-definition camera for mobile devices by a South Korean company. At the end of the review, we will find out what alternative the Chinese company HUAWEI is preparing for the already well-known Airpods Pro device.
Budgetary Redmi will receive 5G module
The Redmi K30 Pro smartphone has become one of the most successful models of the company. The user, for $ 425, gets a device with a flagship processor, good photo capabilities, the ability to work in new generation networks.
However, the company decided not to stop at this and start the release of a simpler version of the device - Redmi K30i, which will cost less.
This model will receive a different processor and a weaker camera. Instead of a 64-megapixel sensor, they use a 48-megapixel one. All other hardware of the device will remain the same. Interestingly, he will also have a 5G modem.
Therefore, it is worth waiting for the appearance of a device with a mid-range Snapdragon 765G chipset, four cameras, a 120 Hz screen and a 4500 mAh battery. Insiders claim that it will cost only $ 254. If so, then the cheapest smartphone with a 5G module will appear on the market.
The bad thing is that the devices of the Redmi K30 line did not make it to our country. So far, they are being implemented only in China. There are rumors that the POCO F2 will start selling in India.
One thing can be said with certainty: if the K30i appears on the international market, it will immediately declare itself, will have an impact on it. Especially in terms of pricing. Representatives of other, even better-known brands will probably have to step aside.
As a reminder, the Redmi K30 Pro is equipped with a Snapdragon 865 processor, 6GB of RAM, IP53 dust and moisture protection and a 6.67-inch AMOLED display (FHD +) developed by Samsung. All processes in it are controlled by Android 10 OS with the Xiaomi MIUI 11. shell.
Most of the population of our country will certainly be able to afford such a device as the Redmi K30i, due to its reasonable cost and the availability of good equipment. Therefore, let's hope that the Chinese manufacturer will start delivering it to USA.
Samsung experts are developing a 600 megapixel smartphone camera
Smartphone manufacturers competed with each other to equip their devices with high-resolution cameras. Users demand to improve their capabilities, which affects this process. Therefore, developers are forced to go forward, increasing the number of megapixels in devices and making them more and more perfect.
Recently, the head of one of Samsung's divisions, Yongin Pak, said that the company has plans to develop small sensors that can meet and exceed the resolution of the human eye.
It is known that our eyes are able to distinguish images with a resolution of 500 megapixels. The company's new sensor will receive 600 megapixels.
The Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra with a 108MP camera is currently on sale.
Its developers claim that it was possible to create such a sensor six months after the appearance of the first 64 megapixel sensor in the company's history.
Yongin Pak also said that his company is working not only on photo and video equipment for smartphones. She is looking for technology that would record smells and tastes. The ultimate goal of Korean engineers is to create a device that will become an integral part of human life.
For example, they believe that infrared and ultraviolet sensors in smartphones will soon become mandatory. The latter can help in the early diagnosis of cancer by identifying skin cells of a different color.
Infrared sensors are needed to check the quality of, for example, agricultural products.
Samsung believes that image sensors will eventually be used in self-driving vehicles, IoT (Internet of Things) and drones.
