Insider # 2.04: News from Apple, Oukitel and Samsung. Smartwatch from Nubia


The second edition of the April Insider is devoted to information related to the developments of several companies. Yabloko are working on a new format MacBook, Oukitel announced that it will soon release a new smartphone. It became known that Samsung is preparing to release a new tablet, and the Nubia Alpha watch will start selling in five days.

Apple's laptop may be equipped with a touch case

Patently has leaked design information for the Apple MacBook that is still in development.

Apple has received a patent stating that the manufacturer plans to make a control element out of laptop surfaces. To do this, they need the trackpad area and even the outside of the lid of the device.

The presented documents describe the technology of the coating, which has a translucent appearance. It recognizes touchless and touch input methods, and responds to different pressures.


This technology can be used not only on laptops, it can be equipped with iPhone, Apple Watch and Apple Pencil.

Although the information about the patent has been published, so far all this does not mean anything. Something can be said only after the announcement of a gadget with similar functionality.

K9 will have a large battery and a large screen

Announced the imminent release of the Oukitel K9 smartphone. This information was disseminated by the company itself. The device will receive a large, 7.12-inch display and bezels of modest thickness. The latter became possible due to the use of a small cutout at the top of the screen. The device has a good resolution, corresponding to 2244 x 1080 pixels.


The gadget is equipped with a 12-nm processor MediaTek Helio P35 (MT6765) based on eight Cortex-A53 cores with a clock frequency of 2.3 GHz. The graphics accelerator is the GE8320 chipset with a frequency of 680 MHz. Due to the presence of such powerful functionality, the device will have high performance parameters. At least that's what the developers say.

This will be especially noticeable during the gameplay. It has a 6000 mAh battery, which will allow you to use the smartphone for a long time autonomously. The presence or absence of functionality for wireless charging is not reported.

Pre-orders for this product will begin to be accepted at the end of this month, and it will go to the wide network in early May.

Samsung Galaxy Fold information received

Samsung is planning to announce its foldable Galaxy Fold tablet later this month. However, long before the release, XDA Developers found a copy of its source code. She has been carefully studied.

It became clear that the flagship tablet Galaxy Tab S5 will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855.


In February of this year, the Koreans have already presented the Galaxy Tab S5e, which received a 10.5-inch Super AMOLED screen and a Snapdragon 670 processor. It should be said that such dynamics in the tablet segment is not accidental. Now the leader in this direction is Apple. Therefore, it is important for Samsung to keep up and produce more devices with high performance parameters.

This is why the Galaxy Tab S5 will feature a Super AMOLED screen with thin bezels. He is also predicted to have a proprietary One UI shell based on Android 9 Pie.

Sales Coming Soon

During the MWC 2019 in Barcelona, Nubia unveiled a smartwatch that received an unusual flexible screen. According to the manufacturer, it will withstand at least 100,000 bends. The functionality of Nubia Alpha has received a special shell that has its own interaction with the interface.


The main advantage of the product is the presence of a 4-inch OLED display. Its resolution is 960 x 192 pixels. The "heart" of the device is the Snapdragon Wear 2100 processor. The battery has a capacity of 500 mAh, it will last for two days of battery life. Much depends on the operating conditions of the product.

The Bluetooth version of the watch in the black case will go on sale in five days, its price will be $ 510 USA. An eSIM modification will be available later this year for $ 624 .
