The next review of insider data this time will be devoted to information about the yet to be announced OnePlus 8. We will also tell you about some information related to the developments of Apple. At the end of the article, we will discuss the prospects of the gadget that HUAWEI engineers are currently working on.
An insider spoke about the device, which will be presented in six months
In a few days, OnePlus will announce its new 7T Pro smartphone, but users are already eagerly awaiting information about the OnePlus 8.
Well-known insider OnLeaks recently helped with this. He posted on the network previously unpublished renders of this device.
Taking a look at the image, you might think that this gadget is practically no different from the 7 Pro. This is almost the case. There are differences, but they are insignificant. First of all, this applies to the retractable camera, which is present on the model currently on sale.
In the novelty, the form factor of this device has been changed. The pull-out mechanism will not be there, the camera will be placed in a cutout that will be in the screen.
A speaker will be placed at its bottom. This can be understood by the presence of a cutout there.
The back panel also differs little from the counterpart on the OnePlus 7 Pro. Here, the developers installed a triple main camera module, the lower lens of which has no visual separation with the rest of the sensors.
It is not clear yet whether the design of the device will be preserved or some other changes will follow.
An insider claims that the gadget will have the following geometric parameters: 160.2 x 72.9 x 8.1 mm, which indicates its compactness compared to the 7 Pro, which has such dimensions: 162.6 x 75.9 x 8.8 mm. We also know about smaller display sizes, where the developers have reduced the diagonal size by 0.17 inches.
Nothing has been reported about the technical equipment. It is assumed that the device will be based on the platform of one of the top processors. Perhaps it will be Snapdragon 865. They also predict the presence of a screen with a refresh rate of 90 Hz.
The OnePlus 8 is expected to be shown early next summer.
Apple is developing a new affordable iPhone
One of Apple's product analysts, Ming-Chi Kuo, recently announced that the American company is developing a budget smartphone to replace the iPhone SE. He predicts that this device will have a familiar design and powerful filling.
The insider fully confirms the leaks that appeared earlier in the network on this matter. He predicts the approximate start of sales of the device - the first quarter of 2020. It is expected to be very similar to the iPhone 8.
Only the technical equipment of the gadget will be more advanced. The core of its hardware will be the A13 Bionic processor with 3 GB of RAM.
Most likely, with the release of a new product, the iPhone 8 will stop selling. It is currently priced at $ 449, and no pricing has been announced yet.
The analyst believes that the company's product is aimed at the current owners of the iPhone 6. The appearance of smartphones is similar, but the filling of the future novelty is fresher and more advanced.
MacBook will get a touch keyboard
A new patent application from Apple was published yesterday describing a new on-screen keyboard with tactile feedback. Its main feature is the ability to simulate the shape of physical buttons using an electrostatic charge.
The document says that the realism of the simulation of the edges and center of touch buttons is provided by a combination of tactile motors and electrostatic charge. Special controllers are located under the touch panel, installed to change the voltage on the electrodes below it. This will give the surface a bending sensation when pressed.
It has not yet been reported whether a similar technology was previously used in the development of Yabloko or elsewhere.
Several illustrations are attached to the documentation. The images on them resemble tablets of the iPad line, but experts predict that such keyboards will be equipped with MacBooks.
As usual, it is not yet clear whether this patent application will be implemented. The completion date of the project has not been announced.
HUAWEI is developing a new smartphone
TENAA (this is a Chinese regulator) has information about a still unknown smartphone from HUAWEI. Its code number has been published - ART-TL00. Interestingly, its display has a small cutout for the front camera. It is believed that the latest trend in this industry is the elimination of any cutouts and holes in the display.
The basis of the hardware stuffing of the device is the Kirin 710 processor. The battery with a capacity of 3900 mAh is responsible for the autonomy. The device received a 6.39-inch display with HD + resolution, a dual module of the main camera with sensors with a resolution of 48 and 8 megapixels. There is also an 8MP selfie camera.
Nothing has been announced yet about memory configuration, release date and prices for this modification.
