    This week, Apple's plans to acquire the Intel division engaged in the production of 5G modems became known. They could debut as early as in the models by 2020. This is not the only smartphone update: LG is preparing to start production of flexible OLED panels in South Korea this year to immediately start deliveries to the Cupertino company. In other words, one of the iPhones of 2020 should get a flexible OLED display.

    The partnership between the two giants is not news. LG has been supplying iPhone displays for several years, although it is not the main partner. If both companies reach an agreement, it will help Apple reduce its dependence on Samsung's OLED displays.

    Mass production of LG flexible OLED screens will begin in the third quarter.

    Artificial intelligence will be responsible for the light sensitivity of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 camera

    Samsung Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ will receive three lenses on the backside, and the older model will get an additional flight time sensor (ToF).

Letsgodigital demonstrated how Samsung plans to link software solutions to the new hardware and what can happen in the end.

    Artificial intelligence will be responsible for the light sensitivity of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 camera

    The new patents say that the upcoming Galaxy Note 10 line has two new features — Smart-ISO and AI-ISO. They should allow the phablets to automatically adjust the light sensitivity of the sensors depending on the ambient lighting. Note 10 will be able to store the user's ISO settings for the future. The report also confirms early leaks that the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ will be able to support three variable aperture settings, as opposed to the two values in the Galaxy S10 and S10 Plus.

      In this release of Insider information: ZTE will release its own 5G modem for smartphones; Apple is preparing laptops with native support for 5G; only one model of Samsung Galaxy Note10 will receive Qualcomm processor; Pocophone F2 will provide an AMOLED display; Xiaomi Mall brand store will show new devices on August 5.
      ZTE will release its own 5G modem for smartphones
      There has been almost no news from ZTE on the smartphone market recently, although the company introduced its own device with support for fifth-generation Axon 10 Pro 5G networks. It works on Snapdragon 855 in conjunction with the Snapdragon X50 modem. This week, it suddenly became clear that the manufacturer is preparing its own 5G modem and will compete with market leaders.

      This year ZTE will present a 5G chip created by 7-nm process technology. Apparently, we are talking about a separate modem, not a platform with an integrated solution, which means ZTE intends to supply modems to third-party manufacturers. By the way, insiders talk about the possible development of 5-nm technology. In this case, ZTE can become one of the market leaders of mobile modems.
      Apple preparing a laptop with native support for 5G
      DigiTimes published the news, which says that Apple will release in 2020 the first models of MacBook laptops with built-in 5g modems and, as a result, self-support for fifth-generation cellular networks. The company uses unusual ceramic antennas to improve signal reception from cell towers.

      No source has confirmed this information, so you should treat it with a degree of skepticism. In addition, it is not clear when 5G support will appear in the new iPhone, and there is no certainty that Apple implements this feature in laptops earlier than in smartphones.
      Only one Samsung Galaxy Note 10 model will get Qualcomm processors

      On August 8, Samsung will present the Galaxy Note 10 line-up. This year, the company intends to further reduce its dependence on third-party processor suppliers, in particular, Qualcomm. Eminent insider Evan Blass said that only one model will get a processor from Qualcomm — operator version of Verizon. Absolutely all other smartphones will work on Exynos 9825, including branded versions of AT&T and T-Mobile.

      For several years Samsung has been supplying Galaxy Note smartphones based on Exynos brand chips to all regions of the world, except America. Other smartphone features remain the same for all smartphone buyers.
      Pocophone F2 will provide AMOLED-display
      Following the appearance of the long-awaited Pocophone F2 in the benchmark database, the media published assumptions about the specifications of this smartphone.

      Poco F2 should get an AMOLED display with full HD+resolution. The Pocophone F2 will run on a Snapdragon 855 or Snapdragon 855 Plus paired with 6 or 8GB of RAM. Android 9 Pie with MIUI shell will come out of the box.
      Pocophone F2 may present in September.
      Xiaomi Mall brand store will show new devices on August 5
      On August 2, the official announcement "I want to be in silence" with the specified date — August 5 appeared on the site of Xiaomi Mall store. Probably, we are talking about the start of sales of new devices.

      There is no indication of what may go on sale. Most leaks and assumptions point to the announcement of new headphones with active noise reduction. Recently, the company has certified wireless headphones Mi True Wireless Earphones 2 on the website Bluetooth SIG.

      It is expected that the company will present new products during the traditional autumn presentation along with the update of the iPhone line and the release of a new version of iOS.
      Samsung Galaxy Note 10 revealed in unusual case colors
      Two new renders of Samsung Galaxy Note 10 have appeared in the network. The images are notable for unusual colors of the case for the flagship line. The first option is a gradient with a predominance of green color and a stylus of the same color.

      The second model will be solid pink with a touch of orange. Whether the models will be officially presented in this design, will find out very soon — at the event, Samsung Unpacked on August 7 will share the most detailed information.

    • 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.

      Summary

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.
