The next release of insider data will inform the readers of the portal about another development of the OPRO company. Then we will discuss the possibility of using two operating systems at once by HUAWEI smartphones. We'll also talk about the prospects for the appearance on the market of 5G chipsets from MediaTek and the imminent release of the Black Shark 2 Pro gaming smartphone modification.
Borderless gadget by ORRO
This summer, ORRO engineers created a smartphone that was equipped with a "waterfall" screen. This definition was given by the developer's specialists, since its edges were bent almost at right angles.
To be more precise, this angle is 880. The usable area of the front panel of the product was more than 100%. There was no cutout for the front camera. It was placed under the screen.
After that, the world saw Vivo Nex 3 and HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro, equipped with similar structural elements. Now it has become known that the pioneer of this form of displays is preparing something more interesting.
The network has information about the registration of an ORRO patent describing a device without frames. Its screen is curved on all sides.
The document presented the schemes on the basis of which the specialists of the resource LetsGoDigital created the renders of the novelty.
There are many smartphones with curved displays on sale now. But none of them has a screen curved around the perimeter. This is due to several possible ergonomic issues. What to do with the sensors usual for such devices? ORRO engineers plan to place them right below the screen.
For example, they think of a light sensor at the top of the display or on the side. The infrared sensor will be located in the same place. It is needed to determine thermal parameters. If the user brings the smartphone to his head to talk, then with the help of this sensor the smart device will know about it.
It is worth recalling here that this company has already created a device in which some elements were located under the display. This is a smartphone with the first sub-screen camera.
HUAWEI P40 and P40 Pro will be equipped with two operating systems
In August, the HUAWEI HarmonyOS operating system was announced. Later, a company spokesman said that her priority remains the use of the Android OS in its products.
Recently, there was data indicating the intention of the company to change its mind on the above. Some of the newer devices are equipped with HarmonyOS as proof of this.
It is assumed that they will receive two operating systems at once with the ability to choose any of them to use. The Chinese OS was originally created for use in smart technology and the Internet of Things. This platform can also be used in smartphones.
Twitter insider RODENT950 reported that the Chinese manufacturer intends to equip the HUAWEI P40 and P40 Pro with Dual OS. It will help users choose between the two download options.
Now they can decide on their own which OS to choose HarmonyOS or Android. This option is currently being tested. If the manufacturer is satisfied with everything, then it is possible that other gadgets of the company will receive two operating systems each.
MediaTek will start selling 5th generation network chipset later this year
One of MediaTek's processors was recently featured on Geekbench. It supports 5th generation networks. After that, it was reported that the delivery of new items would begin soon.
Insiders have reported that MediaTek will begin selling the MT6885 mobile platform, equipped with support for fifth generation networks in the fourth quarter of this year.
This was even reported by several media outlets from Taiwan. According to them, this model of the chipset will be used in several smartphones, the start of sales of which is scheduled for the first half of next year.
Prior to that, it became known that this company has already begun sending chip samples to its customers. All of them are equipped with 5G modems operating at frequencies up to 6 GHz.
It is not announced which of the manufacturers will be the first to start production of mobile devices based on such processors.
Xiaomi has updated the model of the gaming smartphone
In the middle of summer, Xiaomi announced the Black Shark 2 Pro gaming smartphone. It is equipped with the flagship Snapdragon 855 Plus processor and 12GB of RAM, and a teaser of the device appeared on the Internet yesterday. Interestingly, it has an unusual design.
The main change in the appearance of the device is associated with the presence of a bright orange case. The technical equipment of the gadget remained unchanged. It also has a 6.39-inch AMOLED display and 128GB UFS 3.0 storage.
In addition, the smartphone is equipped with a dual module of the main camera. The sensors here have a resolution of 48 and 12 megapixels. The battery is responsible for autonomy with a capacity of 4000 mAh, which supports charging at 27 W.
The new Black Shark 2 Pro modification will start selling on October 18 at a price of $ 423.
