      Blackview BV5900 screen will survive a fall
      Blackview told about the BV5900 smartphone, for which it has developed a new design and a number of attractive features. For example, the body of the model has smooth curves at the edges and rests securely in the hand thanks to special inserts behind the back cover. The corners of the smartphone are reinforced in such a way that the screen remains intact even with a strong impact.

      For the front camera provides a cut-out droplet, so the screen seems frameless and occupies the entire area of the front panel. There are two rear Sony cameras of 13 Megapixels, able to take good images in any environmental conditions. Blackview BV5900 does not miss moisture, dust, dirt, so it can be safely taken to the desert, mountains or water travel.

      For the performance, Blackview BV5900 meets the processor MediaTek MT6761. Autonomous operation during the day provides a battery of 5580 mAh. Out of the box, the unit runs on Android 9.0 Pie. A nice addition will be the availability of NFC-module for contactless payments.

      Release date and cost of Blackview BV5900 will be known soon.
      Samsung will present low-cost Galaxy A30s and A50s
      After the presentation of the Galaxy NoteNote10,-cost smartphones Galaxy A and Galaxy M come to the market. Samsung introduced the Galaxy A10s and Galaxy M10s this week , and now, as insiders predicted, the Galaxy A30 and A50 are getting ready for the update. On the Wi-Fi Alliance website, smartphones Galaxy A30s and Galaxy A50s were noticed, which will replace the current models.

      Talking about the technical parameters on the basis of a single leak is difficult — according to rumors, the Galaxy A30s will be built on Exynos 7885, and the Galaxy A50s — on a more progressive Exynos 9610, although these computing platforms do not give a clear advantage over existing smartphones. We expect a more detailed report on the unannounced updates from insiders in the coming days.
      Vivo will keep the headphone jack in the next flagship
      This year, Samsung Galaxy Note10+ and Huawei P30 Pro lost 3.5 mm audio jacks, moving to the side of adapter lovers. There are not so many smartphone manufacturers in the world who keep the title of "old believers" and keep the balance between the convenience of users and the desire to make the device thinner or more Autonomous. According to representatives of the company, the new flagship Vivo Nex 3 will keep the round connector.

      On the other hand, this is bad news for fans of the design of the Vivo Apex 2019, which has a solid body without any connectors and ports. Vivo Nex 3 will be made in a more traditional design, will get a display with curved edges and probably the first of the commercial devices will get a front camera hidden directly under the display matrix. The novelty can be presented in the coming weeks.
      Motorola working on a smartphone without a front camera
      Following the abandonment of the thick frames around the display, Motorola began to solve another difficult task: the development of a smartphone without cutouts in the screen. Judging by the new render, engineers are close to success, and the next smartphone will receive an invisible front camera or even lose it.

      You can hide the camera in several ways: place the module on the sliding mechanism inside the case or install it under the display. The latter managed to units among major manufacturers, so it seems more likely version with a retractable camera. In second place is the option of abandoning the front, although few of the vendors ventured to such a bold step.
      The next Motorola presentation is scheduled for August 23.
      The first image of Realme 5 Pro reveals a strange feature of the smartphone
      Twitter insider @Sudhansku has published a render of the upcoming Realme 5 Pro smartphone, which will be presented along with the base model of Realme 5 on August 20. The image clearly shows four rear cameras and a physical fingerprint scanner on the rear panel.

       
      Physical scanner caused a lot of questions from insider and its subscribers, as Realme 5 Pro needs to AMOLED matrix that would allow engineers to use a more relevant sub-screen fingerprint reader.
      The final details and cost of Realme 5 and 5 Pro will be revealed in a week.

    • 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
      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.
