      The evolution of photography has been long and thorny, from black-and-white daguerreotypes to digital snapshots on a smartphone. Now, according to the popular resource, DxOMark, the best camera is the Huawei P30 Pro. What is it capable of and what technologies have provided it with leadership?

      The history of photography has almost two hundred years: the world's first shot on camera obscura Frenchman Joseph Nicephore Niepce made in 1826. Instead of photo paper, the enterprising inventor used a tin plate covered with a thin layer of bitumen. Three years later, his compatriot Louis Daguerre perfected the process and went down in history as the "father of photography". He discovered the method of daguerreotype for two decades remained the most popular technology for obtaining images.
      The first color photo in history was obtained only in 1861. English physicist James Maxwell combined three photos taken from the same angle, but with the use of separate color filters — red, green and blue (eng. Red, Green, Blue).
      With the development of the industry, analog consumer cameras began to give way to the digital, and later digital mirror models that appeared in the late 1970s. The latter, in turn, competed with more compact mobile devices. The difference in the size of the camera lenses of modern smartphones compensates for the new technologies.

      The photo was taken on Huawei P30 Pro
      The camera sensor itself is used to convert optical images into electronic signals. He creates only monochrome images, and to “colorize” the frame, another component is used - a light filter. The industry standard for several decades remained the Bayer pattern - an array of red, green and blue elements covering the sensor matrix. The color picture is “glued together” from three black-and-white ones, each of which reflects the rays of light that have passed through their own color filter.
      Huawei engineers undertook to reconsider the well-established combination - replacing the green filter with yellow, letting in both the red and green spectrum, increased the efficiency of the SuperSpectrum RYYB sensor by 40%. In practice, the sensitivity of the flagship Huawei P30 and P30 Pro reaches ISO 204 800 and ISO 409 600, respectively. In combination with high-aperture optics (f/1.6 for P30 Pro and f/1.8 for P30), such values allow you to take a clear picture even in low light conditions.

      Left - Huawei P30 Pro (f/1.6, shutter speed 30 s, ISO 1600), on the right - Huawei P30 (f/1.8, shutter speed 30 s, ISO 1600)
      The Huawei P30 Pro photomodule is complemented by a Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensor - it emits light and records its reflection rate from the subject of the survey. In other words, it creates a three-dimensional map of the object, on the basis of which the device calculates the optimal values of background blur for portrait photography with the bokeh effect. The 3D camera, thanks to the ability to accurately determine the distance, replaces the laser autofocus sensor.

      Left: Huawei P30 Pro (f/1.6, 1/2 shutter speed, ISO 102 400), right: Huawei P30 (f/1.8, shutter speed 1/4 s, ISO 102 400)
      It would seem that why use multiple cameras in one phone? To cover the full range of possibilities of optics "adult" cameras, dividing the functions of massive DSLRs between several compact lenses.
      Lens SuperZoom models Huawei P30 Pro supports a 5-fold optical zoom with an equivalent focal length (EGF) to 125 mm 10x zoom hybrid increases this value to 270 mm, and EGF at a maximum of 50 times digital zoom reaches 1343 mm.

      In this release of the Insider information: Lenovo Z6 Youth Edition could be the first smartphone based on Snapdragon 730; photo cover and box Redmi K20 has revealed key details about the smartphone; HONOR 20 Pro equip the camera with high-aperture optics; the insider revealed the working frequency of AMD Ryzen Ryzen 5 3400G and 3 3200G.
      Lenovo Z6 Youth Edition may be the first smartphone on Snapdragon 730

      On May 16, Lenovo Vice President announced a new smartphone based on the Snapdragon processor. It is expected that the product will be called Lenovo Z6 Youth Edition. Recall that in December 2018, the Chinese manufacturer released Lenovo Z5 Pro GT 855 — the first gadget with Snapdragon 855 on Board. Because of this, insiders are confident that the Z5 Youth Edition will be the debut device based on the Snapdragon 730 chip.

      Snapdragon 730 is still not out on the market, despite the fact that Samsung announced the Galaxy A80 with a new chipset a few weeks ago. The CPU is made by 7-nm process technology and is equipped with a set of two high-performance cores Kryo 470 (A76) with a frequency of 2.2 GHz and six Kryo 470 (A55), operating at a frequency of 1.8 GHz. The processor works in tandem with the Adreno 618 graphics accelerator.
      The release of Lenovo Z6 Youth Edition is scheduled for May 22. In addition to the new platform, the gadget will receive a high-precision GPS-module HD8040.
      Photo cover and box Redmi K20 revealed the key details about the smartphone

      Photos of the case and the Redmi K20 box appeared on the Weibo brand's official page. The packaging of the smartphone is made in purple and black, and a white dragon logo is printed on top of the cover.

      The image of the official cover for the Redmi K20 confirms that the smartphone has a triple camera on a vertical island in the center. Cuts under the fingerprint scanner on the case are not provided either behind or on the edges. It can be assumed that the sensor in the Redmi K20 is built-in under the screen, which means the manufacturer uses an OLED matrix.
      Redmi also revealed the design of branded T-shirts. Probably, they will receive the lucky favorites who pre-order the smartphone.
      HONOR 20 Pro will be equipped with a camera with high-aperture optics

      Before the release of the line HONOR 20 remains a week. Shortly before the presentation, President Zhao Ming published pictures taken on the HONOR 20 Pro in the dark. The EXIF data of the photographs suggests that the brand will release the world's first camera phone with a f/1.4 aperture.

      The Quad Camera caption hints at the use of a four-sensor module. According to official information, a 48-megapixel camera with the support of AI algorithms will be responsible for the night shooting in the new product.

      Zhao Ming said the company had already sent the future photogroups to DxOMark to test their photo capabilities.
      Insider revealed the operating frequencies AMD Ryzen 5 3400G and Ryzen 3 3200G
      The TUM_APISAK insider shared new information about unannounced AMD Ryzen 5 3400G and Ryzen 3 3200G processors. According to him, the younger model operates at 3.6 GHz with overclocking capability up to 4.0 GHz. In Ryzen 5 3400G, the operating frequencies will be 3.7 and 4.2 GHz.

      AMD Ryzen 5 3400G also appeared in the SiSoftware Sandra database. According to information from this source, the processor is equipped with four cores with SMT support and 4 MB of L3 cache. Judging by the screenshot, the test sample was installed in the motherboard with the AMD B550 chipset.

    • 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

      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.
