    Sony has not yet announced a new generation of branded flagship smartphones, but information about them continues to flow to the Internet through insider channels. According to available information, the next new product of the vendor will debut as Xperia 1.1. One of the main features of the device will be the main camera, whose sensors will duplicate the configuration of the Samsung Galaxy S20 + module and will be able to record video in 8K resolution with HDR. At the same time, three of the four sensors will not be manufactured by Sony itself, but by a South Korean company.

    Another gadget of the Japanese manufacturer, the image of which recently leaked to the network, will be called Xperia 9. Technical characteristics of the device are not reported - presumably, the model will receive a mid-level Snapdragon 765 processor.

    In the summer of 2020, laptops based on the Intel Lakefield family of processors are expected to be released. The main feature of the new products was the ultra-compact size, which, however, did not prevent the unannounced five-core chip with a clock frequency from gaining 1700 CPU points and 5300 GPU points in the 3DMark Night Raid test. This result corresponds to the level of Intel Core m3-7Y30 in terms of processor performance. The graphics capabilities of the new product are much higher - at the level of integrated solutions of the Ice Lake model range.

    The commercial name, detailed technical specifications and the date of the announcement of the new product are not reported.

      In this release of insider information, the iPhone 12 debuts touch image stabilization; Meizu 17 develops incredible speed in 5G networks; live photos of the realme X50 display confirm the rumors of a dual front-end.
      iPhone 12 debuts touch-sensitive image stabilization
      In 2020, Apple will replace the optical image stabilization system (OIS) with touch-based stabilization. The key difference is the replacement of mobile camera lenses with a mobile sensor. Until now, sensor stabilization was inferior in two key indicators: performance when shooting in low light and cost. However, modern technology should solve these problems.

      According to the publication Digitimes, in 2020, Apple plans to introduce touch image stabilization only in the top model of the iPhone 12. The reason for the rejection of OIS is not clear; according to one version, thus the company's engineers intend to reduce the physical size of the cameras.
      Meizu 17 develops incredible speed in 5G networks

Its announcement will take place in the first half of 2020.
      This week, an unnamed Meizu smartphone was tested at the Meizu Science and Technology Park to determine available download speeds and returns on fifth-generation mobile networks. Presumably, Meizu 17 took part in the testing. A screenshot of the result was published on the social network Weibo.

      In the laboratory, Meizu 17 developed a download speed of 556 Mbit / s, and an upload speed of 75.1 Mbit / s with a maximum delay of 20 ms and an average of 4 ms.

      Samsung Galaxy S11 may present ahead of schedule
      According to numerous leaks, the announcement of the Samsung Galaxy S11 will take place on February 18, but, according to new data, the South Korean vendor is preparing to announce the new product before this date. It is expected that this step will give users the opportunity to evaluate the new product before other manufacturers begin to demonstrate the new flagships.

      According to rumors, the presentation of the Samsung Galaxy S11 will be held in San Francisco on February 11, two weeks before the opening of CES 2020. It is expected that simultaneously with the new product, the manufacturer will announce the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 in the "clamshell" form factor.

      Panos Panay, Vice President of the company, posted a Christmas greeting on his Twitter blog, in which users saw a hint of a new feature of the unannounced Microsoft Surface Duo smartphone with two screens.

      Judging by the image, the battery charge is 62%. It is possible that such a high energy efficiency for modern smartphones is associated with the use of the new Snapdragon 765g mobile platform in the model. On the other hand, the representative of the brand did not say in what mode the device was operated. The expected battery capacity of the new product is 4500 mAh.
      The realme X50 announcement will take place on January 7, 2020.
