This release of whistleblowers will only contain data related to smartphones. First, let's talk about an LG device with an unusual form factor. Then we'll find out what kind of batteries will start to equip the latest iPhone models and why. Finally, let's discuss the changes that POCO has in mind. They refer to future models from this manufacturer.
A video featuring LG Wing has appeared on the web
Over the past few months, rumors have been circulating on the network about the creation by LG of the Wing smartphone, which has an original form factor. It is said that the device has an additional display that can rotate about the transverse axis of the device. That is why the project received such a name - "Wing".
The other day a video appeared on the network demonstrating some of the device's capabilities. Probably, the announcement of the device is not far off.
It can be seen that the second display really resembles a bird's wing. It can be assumed that, in addition to the one shown, there are several more ways to orient the second smartphone screen relative to the body.
Upon closer examination, it is easy to notice that both screens of the device are devoid of holes and cutouts. They also have thin frames.
The South Korean firm has been puzzled by the concept of developing a device with two screens for a long time. In 2015, the LG V10 was released, which received a second display, which was placed above the main one. After that, the company's specialists shifted the focus towards two separate displays. The LG V50 ThinQ and LG G8X are now available with dual screens.
LG V60 and LG Velvet came out this year, and you can easily connect a second panel to both.
The main disadvantage of all these models is the need to constantly carry a second, removable display with you. In the case of LG Wing, it is already built in. Structurally, it is located in the lower part of the device body, from where it leans back in one movement.
The second, perpendicular screen is 4 inches. The main one has 6.8 inches in assets.
Assumed to be powered by Snapdragon 765 or 765G.
In what capacity can such a form factor be useful. Obviously, the smartphone can be used to watch videos. At the same time, it is easy to type a message on the second display.
It's also possible to shoot full screen video while recording selfie video.
However, game lovers will still receive the greatest preferences. Gamers have long revered LG products for having two displays. In the case of LG Wing, a second screen can be used to control it. The main events of the gameplay are reflected mainly at this time.
At the moment, the cost of the new item and the date of its announcement are unknown. However, the fact that a video showing the finished model has appeared suggests that the release will take place very soon.
AirPods Technology Will Help iPhone Get Bigger Batteries
It is known that new iPhone models will begin to be equipped with gluttonous 5G modems. Therefore, Apple engineers are working on the possibility of introducing larger batteries into iPhone cases using the AirPods technology released this year.
Recently, DigiTimes reported that Yabloko can abandon the rigid-flexible printed circuit boards, which have been used for a long time, in order to replace them with system (SiP) and flexible printed circuit boards (FPCB).
As a result, they will be cheap and useful. Smartphone cases will free up space for the introduction of new components, and the whole procedure will cost the company inexpensively.
The latter will be possible due to the fact that Apple has good control over the prices of components. There are plenty of people willing to work with them; the Americans have no shortage of suppliers. They will easily find accommodating.
The iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max currently on sale are thicker than previous models. The reason for this lies in the presence of more capacious batteries.
Consumers and professionals alike expect the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max to be slimmer with a platform powered by energy efficient chips.
POCO has decided to change the perception of its products
The Pocophone or POCO company is known for smartphones with excellent technical characteristics. However, they have a low cost and good build quality.
The main thing, according to this division, is that users have an opinion about the external similarity of POCO models to devices from Xiaomi or Redmi. This confirms them in the idea that Pocophone is not an independent enterprise, but a rebrand.
The Chinese want to change the perception of their products. To this end, changes have already been made to the POCO X3 model.
In F2 Pro, the company's engineers replaced the material from which the back panel is made. Now it is glass (instead of the previously used polycarbonate), but the smartphone is still compared with the Redmi K30 Pro. They are similar not only in appearance, but also in characteristics.
Recently it became known about the creation of the POCO X3 smartphone. The device will receive a rectangular main camera module enclosed in a circle.
In addition, its back cover will consist of three parts. The middle one will be equipped with a textured surface. This can be clearly seen in the photo. The Chinese are expected to use a 64MP sensor as the main sensor.
It is also said about the presence of a battery with a capacity of 5160 mAh, supporting fast charging with a capacity of up to 33 W.
When the device will be shown and how much it will cost is not reported.
