In this week's first insider, we'll first discuss the appearance of the unannounced iPhone 12 render on the web. Then we'll talk about two new vivo smartphones. In the third and fourth information blocks, we will tell you about the work of NVIDIA on a new generation of video cards and the nuances of the technical equipment of the HUAWEI line of devices.
iPhone 12 will get a new scanner
The announcement of the new line of Apple smartphones will take place not soon. However, some information about future products of this company is already periodically emerging. Network informants published on the Internet a schematic image of the rear panel of the Pro-version of the flagship of the iPhone 12 line.
Insider @choco_bit spoke on Twitter about the source of the new leak. This is the code for the beta version of the iOS 14 operating system, which developers use.
It became known that the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will be equipped with square camera modules with four sensors. These will include wide-angle, ultra-wide-angle sensors, telephoto lens. The iPhone 12 will also receive a LiDAR scanner that can accurately measure the distance to objects of photography. It works especially accurately at a distance of up to five meters.
Experts have suggested that such functionality can be used in the implementation of augmented reality functions. Prior to this, rumors circulated on the network that such work was being carried out by Apple engineers. They allegedly created an AR application that can integrate with retail systems.
Traditionally, the American manufacturer presents new items of this class in autumn. Most likely, this will be the case this year. Earlier, our resource reported on a change in the company's strategy and adjustments to production cycles in connection with the coronavirus pandemic.
Netizens claim that the new lineup will include four devices equipped with OLED matrices: one 5.4-inch, two with a 6.1-inch diagonal, and one with a 6.7-inch display. There is no information about the prices for them yet.
