      In mid-November, Motorola unveiled an updated version of the iconic 2004 smartphone Razr V3. The clamshell has received a bendable display and one of the most affordable prices among similar devices. According to the new patent, the next smartphone model can become modular and get a number of additional design features.

      According to the patent, Motorola plans to revive the so-called Moto Mods, equipping the next folding smartphone with a modular design. It will be possible to replace the speaker in the middle of the element where the cameras are located. According to the idea, there will be a projector, speakers and much more.

      The patent also states that the manufacturer can abandon the use of a flexible display by installing two conventional screens in the smartphone or by embedding a third additional touch screen in the front panel, as implemented in the Galaxy Fold.

      As standard, the smartphone can receive three cameras, which will be located in a removable module. One camera will be located in the front, another in the back, and a third in the middle of the structure. Thus, it gives the potential to record 360-degree video. The documentation also mentions a 12-megapixel sensor and a structured IR light emitter, probably designed for face recognition.

      The second option for a modular smartphone can be a device that does not fold vertically, but horizontally - like the Galaxy Fold. Currently, Motorola has not announced its plans for folding devices. Nevertheless, the described design opens up many possibilities, up to the integrated 5G-module and many other unnamed components.
      This is not the first patent of a folding smartphone from Motorola. Recently, a mention of the second version of Razr 2 appeared on the network.

      In this release of the Insider information: a bendable smartphone Motorola lit up on the new rendering; Samsung Galaxy Note10 surpass predecessor's autonomy; the OnePlus screen 7 in absentia has received the highest rating DisplayMate; characteristics of the AMD Navi declassified before the announcement.
      Bendable Motorola smartphone lit up on new renders
      The slashleaks portal has published a new series of renders of unannounced Motorola RAZR (2019). The source claims that the images provided to them reflect the final design of the future product.

      In contrast to the solutions of other vendors, the device is made in the form factor of a clamshell, not a tablet. The gadget bends inward, protecting the screen from bumps and scratches in the "marching position", and a wide "chin" at the bottom of the case makes it easier to fold the device.

      According to rumors, the novelty will be equipped with a Snapdragon 710 processor, 4 or 6 GB of RAM, a 64 or 128 GB drive, a main 6.2-inch OLED display (2142x876 pixels) and an external screen with a resolution of 800x600 pixels. The announcement date and price of Motorola RAZR (2019) are not announced.
      Samsung Galaxy Note10 will surpass its predecessor in autonomy
      Despite the lack of official information, some of the alleged specifications of the future flagship Samsung has already been declassified by insiders. The latest leak contains data on the battery capacity of the unannounced device.

      Korean sources have published a photo of the battery at 4500 mAh, which is expected to be equipped with LTE-modification of the gadget called Galaxy Note10 Pro (SM-N975). Later on, the same figure said a well-known insider IceUniverse. He also added that the smartphone will receive a complete charger with a capacity of 25 watts.
      According to rumors, the Pro-version of the Galaxy Note10 will receive a rear camera of four sensors (12 + 12 + 16 MP and depth sensor) and double front. The basic modification will receive a similar set of cameras, except for the depth sensor. All configuration of the smartphone will be built on the basis Snapdragon processor 855, with the support of a minimum of 8 GB of RAM.
      The release of Samsung Galaxy Note10 is expected in the second half of this year.
      The OnePlus 7 screen in absentia has received the highest rating DisplayMate
      Before the presentation of the seventh revision of the flagship from OnePlus remains about two weeks, but a test sample of the smartphone has already fallen into the hands of experts DisplayMate. This was reported by the company's representatives in their Twitter blog and added that they have already completed the corporate testing of the device display.

      Experts said that they assigned the OLED display OnePlus 7 the highest score A+, but will publish the test report only on the day of the announcement of the device. Previously, a similar characteristic DisplayMate awarded Samsung Galaxy S10, which will soon have to defend its leadership in the competition with the "killer of flagships".
      The announcement of the OnePlus 7 will be held on 14 May 2019.
      Characteristics of AMD Navi graphics cards are declassified before the announcement
      Online resource Wccftech, citing Twitter blogger @Komachi shared data about stuffing unannounced AMD line Navi made for 7-nm process. The published photo shows the printed circuit Board of one of the upcoming new products, which, according to the source, is equipped with gddr6 video memory connected to the GPU over a 256-bit bus.

      In the picture is clearly visible wiring for the GPU and VRAM. Judging by the BGA-substrate, an unidentified model of graphics adapter will be the first solution from AMD to GDDR6. The number of seats under the chips indicates a model with 8 GB of video memory. In the list of display connectors — two DisplayPort, one HDMI, and one USB Type-C. The Board also provides an 8-phase power supply system with two connectors for 6 or 8 contacts.
      According to rumors, the family of the Navi will be the last model range of AMD-based Graphics Core Next architecture. It is expected that the presentation of new products will be held on May 27, 2019, at the exhibition Computex 2019.

    • 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.

      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.
