    DeZire

    At a presentation in Munich, HUAWEI introduced the flagship smartphone Mate 30 Pro. The key feature of the smartphone is the advanced main camera with two 40 megapixel sensors and high-aperture optics. The device also received a curved "screen-waterfall", a capacious battery and a top-end Kirin 990 processor.

     HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro

    The smartphone is equipped with a 6.53-inch Flex OLED display with a resolution of 2400x1176 pixels, bent at the sides at an angle of 88 degrees. This design eliminated the appearance of physical volume buttons on the side of the case - their role is played by touch zones on the surface of the screen itself. A relatively wide cutout for the selfie module and auxiliary sensors are provided in the upper part of the matrix.

    The Always-on Display function is supported for displaying notifications and hours in standby mode. The optical sub-screen fingerprint scanner and face recognition function is responsible for unlocking the device.

    The smartphone is based on the latest 7-nm Kirin 990 processor, the Mali-G76 video accelerator is responsible for the graphics capabilities of the device. Additionally, a dedicated unit of neural computing (NPU) is provided, which is responsible for the operation of AI algorithms in various tasks and applications. To remove heat from the chipset, the manufacturer used a proprietary multilayer heat pipe cooling system.

    The second sensor with the same resolution, size 1/1, 7" and optical stabilization, is equipped with wide-angle aperture (f/1.6) optics with ISO 409 600 sensitivity. The third, at 8 MP, is equipped with a telephoto lens with optical stabilization and three-fold optical zoom. In hybrid mode, the smartphone provides a five-fold increase, and in digital mode, a thirty-fold increase. The depth sensor completes the combination to create the background blur effect. The front camera module is equipped with a similar sensor, which allows you to "separate" the subject from the background to create various effects when shooting a selfie.

      Almost immediately after the announcement of the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro, the network showed the results of testing the flagship news in the popular mobile benchmark AnTuTu. Published data demonstrated the computing capabilities of a smartphone built on the latest Kirin 990 5G mobile platform.

      According to the results of testing, the smartphone with 8 GB of RAM scored 457357 points. The Kirin 990 5G processor received two "large", two "medium" and four "small" cores with a clock frequency of 2.86 GHz, 2.36 GHz, and 1.95 GHz, respectively. For the graphics capabilities of the mobile platform, the 16-core Mali-G76 GPU is responsible.
      The flagship smartphone HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro received a curved on the sides OLED display with a resolution of 2400x1176 pixels, 128 GB of internal memory and the latest operating system Android 10. Among the features of the device is a fifth-generation digital signal processor with hardware noise reduction, block-matching, and 3D filtering. Another feature of the smartphone is an advanced unit of neural computing, designed to accelerate the work of AI smartphone algorithms.

      Today in Munich, the presentation of the new flagship line Mate 30 from HUAWEI was held, and we have already managed to get acquainted with the new products. Particularly impressed with the Pro version. Despite the external similarity with its predecessor, there are enough changes in smartphones. We tell in more detail and share our first impressions.

      Design and ergonomics
      Compared to its predecessor, the HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro has less rounded corners, but this does not cause discomfort when used. The smartphone is large, so it’s not convenient for any hand. The glass on the back is instantly covered with prints, which, however, are also easy to erase.
      Almost the entire front side is occupied by a 6.53-inch OLED panel with curved edges at an 88-degree angle. This solution was called "screen-waterfall". It seems like the display is going to the backside. The manufacturer unusually beat this form, completely abandoning the physical volume buttons. To change it you need to swipe on the side of the display (right or left). The movement of the finger is accompanied by vibration. This is addictive. At a minimum, blindly change the volume during a conversation will need to adapt.

      Like its predecessor, there is a cutout at the top of the screen, but it has become noticeably smaller. It houses a front-facing camera and a sensor system for 3D facial recognition. You can also unlock your smartphone with the help of a new generation fingerprint scanner built into the screen, which works instantly.
      They decided to refuse the speaker inside the USB Type-C connector this time. Recall that in Mate 20 Pro because of this sound becomes quieter during charging. But the water protection standard IP68 has not gone away.

      Display
      Mate 30 Pro screen features a rich palette, a good supply of brightness and the ability to calibrate. Among the disadvantages we note is that the inevitable distortion of colors on the curved edges, which is especially noticeable on a white background.
      I would like to pay more attention to the programs related to the display. For example, in games on the side faces, you can enable virtual triggers and use your index fingers to control, as on gamepads. In addition, while shooting with the front camera, you can click on the side face to take a selfie.

      The smartphone can monitor the position of the head relative to the screen and turn the picture in the right direction. It turns out a kind of advanced auto-rotate. For example, if you lie on your side and hold your smartphone horizontally relative to the eyes, the picture will not flip.
      Another useful feature is anti-spying. If the device "sees" that in addition to the owner, someone else is looking at the screen, the notes, messages, and other personal information are automatically hidden from the display.

      You can control your smartphone without touching it. The camera and sensor system above the display is capable of tracking gestures, allowing you to scroll through lists, switch and control video playback. For example, by clenching your hand into a fist over the device, you can take a screenshot.
      There is also support for always-on Display mode, the Current time, information about incoming calls, messages and notifications are displayed on the off-screen.

      Camera
      The camera is one of the main criteria when choosing a mobile phone. HUAWEI Mate 30 Pro utilizes a range of unique and advanced solutions. Suffice it to say that this is the first smartphone in the world with a dual 40-megapixel camera.
      In addition to the 40-megapixel RYYB sensor with optical stabilization, the smartphone also uses another 40 megapixel module with a lens with a focal length of 18 mm. It allows you to make wide-angle time-lapses in 4K and can shoot videos with ISO up to 51,200, which was previously only available in professional cameras. But the main thing is to record slow-motion videos at speeds up to 7680 frames per second. Prior to this, the mobile record was 960 fps. That is, the new Mate 30 Pro manages to shoot 8 times more frames per unit time. According to HUAWEI, in this mode, you can even catch the movement of the bullet.

      The Mate 30 Pro also has a 3D depth sensor for a more accurate blurring of the background and a third camera - an 8-megapixel camera with 3x optical and 5x hybrid zoom. This telephoto has optical stabilization.

      Filling and firmware
      The smartphone has the latest Kirin 990 processor without 5G support. HUAWEI flagships of recent years have no performance problems, and they are leaders in the speed of the system. But in the Mate 30 Pro, as it seemed to us, the interface became even more responsive, and the launch noticeably accelerated. Perhaps this is the merit of the new EMUI 10 shell and the Ark compiler of its own design.
      EMUI 10 is markedly different from the previous version. The developers updated the user interface, inspired by magazines with large headlines, changed the palette in favor of light pastel colors, added a dark theme, redrawed the icons of standard applications and the programs themselves, adapting them to control with one hand.

      The time for the first acquaintance was allotted a little and thoroughly to study its functions and capabilities simply was not possible. We are eager to find out how long the smartphone will work on a 4,500 mAh battery and how long it takes to charge from powerful charges - wired at 40 W and wireless at 27. But the Mate 30 Pro is most interested in the camera. We will study the new flagship in detail and tell you the details soon.

      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.

      In this release of Insider information: Apple car with unusual sensors spotted in Cupertino; live photos of a Motorola smartphone with a retractable camera; Meizu M928Q will surprise with a large screen and a triple camera; The first HUAWEI smartphone on the Kirin 990 processor was tested in the benchmark.
      Apple car with an unusual set of sensors spotted in Cupertino
      Over the past couple of years, rumors about Apple working on its own autopilot car have gradually faded away, while insiders have announced the freezing of the project. Nevertheless, the other day in Cupertino, a car was seen with an unusual set of sensors on the roof. It is assumed that in front of us is one of the prototypes of the Apple car.

      So far, it has been reported that a range of sensors, including radar, cameras, and LiDAR, are used in the tested Apple machines. The latter is similar to radar but uses laser pulses. In many models with autopilot, it is needed to create a highly detailed three-dimensional map of the car’s environment at a distance of up to 100 meters. For example, Google machines can detect the hand signal of a cyclist, and Waymo can determine in which direction pedestrians are moving and predict their likely movements.
      For the same reason, LiDAR has a high cost. Apple is reportedly working on its own LiDAR array and is also in talks with suppliers to develop its own device, which would be cheaper, smaller, and easier to mass-produce.
      Live photos of a Motorola smartphone with a retractable camera
      Motorola has already introduced smartphones with cutouts in the screen for the front camera - One Vision and One Action. The company has even more impressive plans ahead: the release of a frameless smartphone with a retractable front camera.

      Probably, the smartphone will not be included in the program of budget Android One devices and will work on a customized version of the OS. Other details are not communicated.
      Meizu M928Q will surprise with a large screen and a triple camera
      Meizu continues to introduce smartphones for the Chinese market. One of the following innovations will be the M928Q model, which appeared in TENAA. The smartphone will receive a 6.5-inch screen and three rear cameras (12 + 8 + 5 megapixels). Meizu M928Q debuts in blue-black, green and red-orange colors. Case dimensions - 159.63 x 78.2 x 8.3 mm with a weight of 183 g.

      The screen resolution is 2232 × 1080 pixels, the battery capacity is 4400 mAh. An unknown chipset with a clock frequency of 2.84 GHz is responsible for performance. Paired with it, 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal memory are installed. In front is a 16-megapixel selfie camera. Out of the box, the Meizu M928Q will run on Android 9.0 Pie.
      The cost and date of the announcement are not called.
      The first HUAWEI smartphone on the Kirin 990 processor was tested in the benchmark
      The premiere of the top-end Kirin 990 chipset, which focused on the capabilities of artificial intelligence, did not have time to die out, as records of passing the test of the HUAWEI Dev Phone test smartphone began to appear in the database of benchmarks. Presumably, this is the Mate 30 or Mate 30 Pro.

      It runs on Kirin 990, the latest version of Android 10, and contains 8 GB of RAM. The AI capabilities were tested, while the HUAWEI Dev Phone left other chipsets far behind: 76,206 versus 35,130 points in the Kirin 810. The chipset set a completely new bar in questions of artificial intelligence-based computing.
      HUAWEI Mate 30 will be presented on September 26th.

      Shortly before the expected presentation of the smartphone Huawei Mate 30 Pro, the reputable industry insider OnLeaks published exclusive renders and videos with a 3D model of the upcoming product. The leak demonstrates all the design features of the device and gives a visual representation of the design of the future flagship.
      According to the leak, the device in the case of glass and metal will receive a number of differences from its predecessor. The smartphone will be equipped with a 6.6-inch "waterfall screen" with curved edges with a wide cutout at the top for the selfie module and auxiliary sensors. The smartphone is credited with the latest processor of its own design Kirin 990 and 5G-modem to work in mobile networks of the last generation.

      On the back panel, there is a round block of the main camera consisting of four sensors. The LED flash is placed outside the module. According to rumors, the gadget will receive two sensors with a resolution of 40 MP, an 8-megapixel sensor with a telephoto lens and a 3D TOF sensor. The power button is located on the right, there are no visible volume controls.

    • 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.
