  • Insider information #0003: Razer Phone 3, Huawei Mate 30, Nubia Red Magic 3, Samsung Galaxy Fold


    In the new release of Insider information: the head of Razer hinted at the reason for the delay Razer Phone 3; Huawei Mate 30 is already in the testing stage; Nubia Red Magic 3 with a powerful charger seen in China; flexible smartphones Xiaomi and Samsung were very similar; OPPO Reno Pro Snapdragon 855 will acquire an engineering feature.

    The head of Razer hinted at the reason for the delay Razer Phone 3
    According to rumors, the new gaming smartphone Razer Phone 3 at least frozen indefinitely, and in the worst case completely canceled. However, in a new interview with Engadget, Razer CEO Min-Liang Tang may have hinted at the reason for the alleged delay of Razer Phone 3.

    Razer Phone 3

    In his interview, tan mentions the inevitable emergence of wide access to the 5G network, but notes that buying a 5G smartphone now — especially a gaming phone — is not the best move for the consumer.


    "If I plan to buy a phone this year for gaming, I'll be looking for a device that supports 5G, but if I buy a 5G smartphone, I'll soon realize that there are no networks to use it yet."

    And while tan didn't mention Razer Phone 3 directly, the hint of it in that statement looks as transparent as possible. The release date of Razer Phone 3, however, remains unknown.

    Huawei Mate 30 is already in the testing phase
    Immediately after the premiere of the flagship P30 and P30 Pro, Huawei started talking about the preparation of sequels Mate 20 and Mate 20 Pro, and made it official during a press briefing in Malaysia. It is claimed that Mate 30 is already at the testing stage, and the release of new products is expected in September or October this year.

    Huawei Mate 30

    According to rumors, the Huawei Mate 7 will receive a 30-nm processor Kirin 985, 5G modem, large frameless screen, an advanced main camera.

    Nubia Red Magic 3 with powerful charger seen in China
    The new Nubia smartphone with model number NX629J has passed 3C certification in China. This is probably an updated version of last year's gaming smartphone Nubia NX619J — Nubia Red Magic Mars. In other words, a device with a possible trade name Nubia Red Magic 3 was seen in 3C.

    Nubia NX629J will receive a charger for 30 watts, which means support for quick replacement of the battery. The estimated capacity of the installed battery is 5000 mAh. In addition, Red Magic 3 will receive a Snapdragon 855 processor, 12 GB of RAM and a 120 Hz refresh rate screen. The expected cost is up to $500.

    Flexible smartphones Xiaomi and Samsung turned out to be very similar
    A day ago, Xiaomi showed a prototype of its smartphone with a flexible screen. In contrast to the already presented models by Samsung and Huawei, the Chinese vendor intends to offer a device with two hinges for bending each edge of the display separately. At the same time, Samsung has patented another type of bending smartphone, which is surprisingly similar to the unannounced xiaomi model.

    Flexible smartphone

    The Samsung smartphone is thicker on the sides and thinner in the middle, while the Xiaomi gadget has the same thickness over the entire area. To prevent the display from sagging when used in an unfolded state, Samsung placed a stiffener in the center of the case. In the folded position, the support is located between the two parts of the display and eliminates direct contact of the screen with a solid surface. According to the idea of engineers, it will prevent scratches on the screen.

    Flexible smartphone

    Samsung Electronics filed a patent application for this design with the world intellectual property organization in December 2017. Apparently, Samsung intends to update the line of bendable smartphones every year.

    OPPO Reno Pro on Snapdragon 855 will get an engineering feature
    The upcoming OPPO Reno will debut in five versions, but the base model will be presented in two versions: on the Snapdragon 710 processor or the top Snapdragon 855. Vice President of OPPO, Igen Shen reported that in a model Snapdragon processor 710 is to be used, heat-conductive gel and graphite insert for heat dissipation. The OPPO Reno on Snapdragon 855 will receive liquid-cooled copper tubes.

    OPPO Reno Pro

    The device on Snapdragon 710 will be called OPPO Reno Lite. It will be equipped with a 6.4-inch screen with full HD+ resolution, dual rear camera (48+5 MP), 16 MP front. OPPO Reno Pro with Snapdragon 855 will have a 6.65-inch display with a screen-to-body ratio of 93.1%, a triple main camera (48+8+13 MP) with 10x optical zoom and 16mp selfie camera. In addition, the debut of a smartphone with a 5G modem is expected.

    The front camera will be installed on a special sliding mechanism, the work of which was shown in the video. Activating the camera takes a little less than a second.


    The network has already appeared the first images taken on the camera OPPO Reno.

      After almost two hours of presentation of the Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro smartphones, the Watch GT 2 smartwatch and the Vision TV, HUAWEI made an important announcement - the new flagships will ship without Google services and applications. However, for them, there is already a replacement.

      Manufacturers of smartphones and other devices running Android can use Google services only after obtaining a license from the search giant. However, due to U.S. sanctions against HUAWEI, Google refused to certify the new Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro smartphones. Therefore, the Chinese manufacturer cannot preinstall applications and services of the American corporation on them.
      Instead of Google Play on the new HUAWEI smartphones, the branded AppGallery application store will be available, and Google services will be replaced with their own counterparts. True, HUAWEI Mobile Services currently supports about 45 thousand applications. To fix this, a Chinese company invested a billion dollars in attracting developers and developing HMS.
      It is not yet clear what limitations future users of the new Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro may face due to the lack of Google services.

      Along with the Mate 30 Pro model, HUAWEI introduced a “lightweight” version of the flagship smartphone called the Mate 30. The more affordable new product received the same Kirin 990 processor - the main differences between the devices lie in the camera module and some design features.
      Unlike the older model, the Mate 30 received a “flat” 6.62-inch OLED display with side frames. The screen resolution with a small “fringe” for the front camera and an integrated fingerprint scanner is 2340x1080 pixels. The glass case of the device is protected from water and dust according to the IP53 standard. One of the features of the gadget was the support of the contactless control function.

      The smartphone is built on the basis of the flagship 7-nm mobile platform Kirin 990 with a maximum clock frequency of 2.86 GHz, a neural computing module (NPU) and a Mali-G76 graphics accelerator. The amount of RAM is 8 GB, the internal drive - 128 GB. Another difference from the Pro modification was the modem - the smartphone supports 4G networks, despite the support of the fifth-generation networks by the platform itself.

      The main camera module of the device is represented by three sensors. The main, 40-megapixel with wide-angle optics, equivalent focal length (EGF) of 27 mm and aperture of f/1.8, is supplemented by an auxiliary 8 megapixel (f/2.4) with a telephoto lens, EGF of 17 mm and optical stabilization. Macro shooting from a distance of 2.5 cm and night mode are supported.

      The gadget's camera with an ISO 204 800 photosensitivity supports three-time optical, five-time hybrid, and 30x digital zoom. The combination is completed by a 16-megapixel sensor with an ultra-wide-angle lens (f/2.2) and a laser autofocus sensor. The resolution of the sensors of the dual front camera is 24 megapixels (f/2.0).

      The battery capacity of the model is 4200 mAh, supports fast wired (40 W) and fast wireless (27 W) charging. Like the Pro version, the Mate 30 runs Android 10 with the proprietary EMUI 10 add-in and the built-in App Gallery app store.

      Specifications of HUAWEI Mate 30:
      Display: OLED, 6.62 ", 2340x1080, 19.5: 9 Chipset: Kirin 990, Mali G76 GPU RAM: 6/8 GB Built-in memory: 128 GB Main camera: 40 megapixels (f/1.8) + 8 megapixels (f/2.4, telephoto lens) + 16 megapixels (f/2.2) Front camera: 24 MP (f/2.0) Battery: 4200 mAh, fast charge (40 W), wireless charge (27 W) Security: fingerprint scanner in display Communication: 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, GLONASS, NFC Weight: 196 grams The Huawei Mate 30 in six different body colors will go on sale at a price of € 799.

      Even before the announcement of the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro, the appearance of the flagship was repeatedly confirmed by manufacturers of covers, but the full technical characteristics of the gadget remained unknown. The new leak completely revealed the specifications of the future product - at the same time, real photos of the device’s display appeared on the network.

      An insider with the nickname RODENT950 published on Twitter a detailed list of smartphone specifications. If you believe the leak, the flagship will receive the latest Kirin 990 chipset with support for fifth-generation networks. Under the “hood” of the processor are eight cores: two Cortex-A76 clocked at 2.89 GHz, two Cortex-A76 (2.36 GHz) and four Cortex-A55, operating at a frequency of 1.95 GHz. For the SoC graphics capabilities, the Mali-G76 MP 16 video accelerator is responsible. Separately, the source notes the updated neural processor (NPU) based on the Da Vinci architecture.
      In the top-end configuration, the smartphone will receive 8 GB of RAM and 512 GB of internal memory. Additionally, the possibility of expanding the drive using proprietary memory cards is implemented.

      According to available information, the Mate 30 Pro will receive a display with a diagonal of 6.6 'to 6.8' inches with a resolution of 2400x1746 pixels. Judging by the new picture that appeared on the Chinese social network Weibo, the new product will receive an impressive “fringe” for placing a 32-megapixel selfie camera, auxiliary sensors and a speaker.
      The main camera of the smartphone will be represented by three sensors: 40-megapixel Sony IMX600 (f/1.6), focal length 23 mm and optical stabilization, 40 megapixel sensor with wide-angle lens, focal length 18 mm and aperture f/1.55, as well as a sensor with resolution 8 megapixel (f/2.4), equipped with a telephoto lens with triple optical zoom. The ToF module for creating portrait shots with a realistic bokeh effect will also fit on the back of the case.
      Mate 30 Pro will receive a battery with a capacity of 4500 mAh and two charging technologies at once: fast wired (40 W), and 27-watt wireless. To unlock the device, Huawei Face ID 2.0 face recognition technology and a fingerprint scanner built into the display will be used.
      The presentation of the HUAWEI Mate 30 and Mate 30 Pro will take place on September 19.

    • OPPO Reno 3 review: Quad camera and lots of memory

      Last year's OPPO Reno 2 smartphone was remembered for its almost flagship characteristics. In the new generation, the emphasis has shifted - the role of the top-end device has been assigned to the Reno 3 Pro, and the standard “three” has become a mid-budget phone. However, Reno 3 received a powerful quad camera, high-quality screen, and a large amount of memory. We find out how good the new product is.

      Four rear modules and a 44-megapixel front-facing camera
      The main camera of Reno 3 received four modules, as in the top-end device of the series - Reno 3 Pro. However, there are some functions missing, such as interpolation up to 108 MP. All the blocks are arranged in a line on an islet that protrudes noticeably upwards if you wear the gadget without a cover.
      The main module has a 1/2-inch sensor with a resolution of 48 MP and a lens with an aperture of f/1.8. As usual, in standard mode, it produces 12-megapixel images, and if desired, you can take photos in full resolution - 48 MP. Telephoto is based on a 13-megapixel sensor and a lens with an f/2.4 aperture. The ultra-wide Angle is equipped with an 8-megapixel sensor and a lens with an f/2.2 aperture. Finally, the 2 MP sensor is designed to assess the depth of the scene.

      Telephoto, in addition to 2x optical zoom, provides a 5x hybrid zoom. The photo app allows you to quickly switch between four shooting modes: ultra-wide angle, 1x, 2x, and 5x.
      All modules can function together with HDR. This option works perfectly in Auto mode, improving both the light and dark tones of contrasting scenes. Artificial intelligence confidently recognizes the scenes being shot and selects settings.
      However, in non-standard lighting conditions, if you choose wide-angle optics, the color rendering will not always be accurate. This does not happen with the main module and the telephoto lens.

      The main module paired with the auxiliary module gives clear portraits and realistic blurs the background
      Reno 3 shoots well in mixed and artificial lighting, as well as in the absence of light in the dark. In the most problematic cases, the Night program helps out. It combines several shots and works out all the tones of contrasting scenes. For shooting with manual settings, an Expert preset is provided.
      Multi-megapixel selfies
      The front camera is built into the display and is located in the middle of its upper edge, in the "drop". The camera is equipped with a 44-megapixel sensor and a wide-angle f/2.4 aperture lens. The default settings are set to a 40-megapixel resolution of images. And the full one is selected by pressing a separate on-screen button. The image quality in both cases is approximately the same. Sharpness appears only from a distance of about 30 cm, that is, for example, it is impossible to obtain a macro photograph of your eye. It seems that the calculation was made for shooting with outstretched hands or a selfie stick. For self-portraits, there are traditionally many beauty options: smoothing the skin, correcting the shape of the face and nose, eye size, and so on.

      Selfies in 44MP mode
      The smartphone records 4K videos at 30 fps. The supported format is Full HD with 30 and 60 fps, as well as slow-motion clips in HD and Full HD. During movie shooting, you can freely switch the zoom.
      In 4K mode at 30 frames per second, the gadget produces a picture with the correct color reproduction and high definition. But when working with hands, stabilization is noticeably lacking.
      Shooting in Full HD at 60 fps uses Ultra Steady Video 2.0 stabilization, which makes the picture smoother.
      Work and entertainment without lags
      Reno 3 is built on an eight-core MediaTek Helio P90 chipset. The new product in AnTuTu gives out figures comparable to the results of Kirin 970 and Snapdragon 712, and slightly ahead of Snapdragon 710. And in the Geekbench 5 rating - is on par with Snapdragon 845. This speed is sufficient to avoid slowdowns in any applications.
      8 GB of RAM allows you to run multiple programs simultaneously. The built-in fingerprint sensor acts quickly and accurately. There are no performance problems in games. In the popular WoT: Blitz with default graphics settings, the frame rate is confidently kept at 60 fps.

      The device has only one main speaker, which produces clear sound without distortion up to about 90% of the volume. Plus, there is support for Dolby Atmos. In this software add-on, you can add surround sound and a bit of bass - a great option for multimedia applications.
      Unfortunately, you will not be able to create a full stereo pair, because the speaker is quieter than the main one. But in Reno3 Pro two speakers shake as if you are holding a good Bluetooth speaker in your hands. Complete in-ear headphones deliver high-quality sound. Thanks to the audio jack, you can connect your favorite accessory.

      The built-in storage is not too large: 128 GB. But it is easy to increase it by using a microSD memory card. It is placed in a triple slot next to two nano-SIM cards. We had a 512 GB test card at hand - it worked without problems.
      High autonomy
      The gadget is powered by a 4025 mAh battery and supports VOOC 3.0 fast charging technology. A 20 W adapter and a complete cable during the test provided recharging at high speed. For example, from 33 to 78%, the battery was charged in 13 minutes, and up to 100% in 27.
      An hour-long shootout in WoT: Blitz (display brightness - 50%) consumes 11 percent of the battery. That is, without going to the outlet, it is about 9 hours of offline gaming. In Flight-mode, with the same brightness, about 4.4% of the battery charge is spent per hour playing the video in Full HD. Therefore, you should expect 22 hours of offline video viewing. Excellent results!

      If long-term autonomy is not so important, you can disable power consumption optimization in the settings and select "High performance". In this case, the device will work a little faster, and the battery consumption will be stronger.
      Great screen
      Reno 3 is equipped with an AMOLED panel with a diagonal of 6.4 inches, a resolution of FHD+ (2400x1080 pixels), and an aspect ratio of 20:9. The display occupies 90.8% of the front panel area, has a teardrop-shaped cutout for the front and thin frames. The image is clear, with rich but natural colors. The viewing angles are large, and the brightness reserve is sufficient for using the phone on the street in any weather. With minimal screen light, it is comfortable to read in a dark room. And at night, you can switch to "Dark mode" - in fact, this is an inverse version of the design: with a black display and a white font. Many people will find it even more convenient, and it also saves battery life.
      Branded shell of the seventh version
      Reno 3 is running a proprietary ColorOS 7 shell based on Android 10. When comparing with the previous version, you can see that the font has not changed, but many icons have been redrawn. However, their shape and size can be easily changed at your own discretion. The screen can be converted to a split format - just make a three-finger swipe up.
      Specifications of OPPO Reno 3
      DISPLAY: 6.4 ", FHD + (2400x1080), 20: 9
      CHIPSET: CPU MediaTek Helio P90 (MT6779V), 2.2 GHz, GPU PowerVR GM 9446
      RAM: 8 GB
      STORAGE: 128 GB
      MAIN CAMERA: main - 48 megapixels (f/1.8) + 13 megapixels (telephoto) + 8 megapixels (wide-angle) + 2 megapixels (scene depth sensor);
      FRONT CAMERA: - 44 megapixels with f/2.4 aperture
      BATTERY: 4025 mAh
      FEATURES: a sub-screen fingerprint sensor, an NFC module, an audio output, support for microSD cards up to 256 GB (without SIM replacement), a proprietary shell ColorOS 7, three body colors: black, white and blue.
      Test results
      ANTUTU: 223,438
      GEEKBENCH: 5 428 single-core, 1568 multi-core
      AUTONOMY: about 22 hours of video playback

      The OPPO Reno 3 is an interesting device with balanced characteristics. From the first minutes, the beautiful design, slim body, and high-quality 6.4-inch screen make you happy. Later on - high performance, fast recharging, and good battery life. The advantages include the photo-filling, including a 44-megapixel front camera. In addition, the built-in drive can be expanded with a memory card, but not to the detriment of the second SIM card - a trifle, but nice.
