    Not even a month had passed since the release of the Meizu 16s Pro smartphone, the first information about the next vendor model under the alleged name Meizu 17 appeared on the network.

    Judging by the renderings published by the iGeekPhone Internet resource, the key visual difference between the future new product and the models previously presented in the line will be a curved display on the sides. At the same time, the device will retain the upper frame, which is characteristically wide for the series, the width of which is identical to the “chin”.

    It is noteworthy that the image does not have visible physical power and volume buttons - it is possible that touch zones along the edges of the screen into which the fingerprint scanner is built will play their role.

    On the back cover of the device, there will be a triple main camera with a vertical arrangement of sensors with a proprietary ring LED flash. The main sensor will receive a resolution of 48 megapixels, a selfie module for 20 megapixels will be responsible for taking a selfie and video communication.

    Detailed specifications, release date and price of the future news are unknown.

      Detailed characteristics of the unannounced flagship Meizu 17 have been repeatedly published by insiders, but a new leak revealed one of the previously unknown details about the upcoming device. Information that appeared in the database of the AnTuTu benchmark hinted at a hardware "downgrade" of the lower configuration of the line.

      According to the leak, the modification of the 8/128 GB smartphone with code number m2081 will be equipped with an LPDDR4X standard memory module, rather than LPDDR5, as previously assumed. Presumably, this will allow the vendor to reduce the cost of the model - Redmi with the younger version of K30 Pro has already adopted this practice. Other Meizu 17 configurations (8/256 GB and 12/256 GB) are rumored to receive a new type of RAM with higher bandwidth.
      According to available information, the gadget will get a 6.5-inch display with a 90 Hz refresh rate and a Snapdragon 865 processor with a 5G x55 modem, as well as a built-in UFS 3.0 drive. The device is credited with a rear camera with a horizontal module and the main Samsung sensor at 64 MP. Other expected features of the device include stereo speakers with Dolby Atmos technology, a sub-screen fingerprint scanner, and a 4000 mAh battery with a fast-charging function (30 W).
      The presentation of the Meizu 17 is expected on April 15, 2020, the price of the device is not disclosed by the manufacturer.

      Following the first renderings of Meizu 17, new images appeared on the network, which presumably lit up the future flagship. It is noteworthy that the published photo session refutes previous leaks regarding the design of the upcoming device, showing a completely different design.

      The new insider image clearly shows the front panel of the smartphone with a hole for the front camera in the upper right corner and thin frames. The second photo shows the back cover of the gadget with a horizontal position of the module. It is noteworthy that both of these design elements are not typical for previous models of the manufacturer's flagship line.
      The source does not report the technical characteristics of the smartphone. According to rumors, Meizu 17 will be built on the basis of the Snapdragon 865 processor, will receive 8 GB of RAM and a 128 GB drive. The gadget is also credited with a 64-megapixel sensor of the main camera in combination with 48 and 20 MP sensors.

      The announcement of Meizu 17 is expected in the spring of this year, but the exact date of the event, as well as the cost of the future new product, the manufacturer has not yet confirmed.

    • 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.
