      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
      This year, Meizu announced plans for the intensive development of a line of smartphones with support for 5g networks. Meizu Vice President for technological development Liang Dong Ming announced four models at once, led by the flagship Meizu 17 based on Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. 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.
      Live Photos of the realme X50 display confirm rumors of a dual front-end
      Live Photos of the realme X50 display were published in Chinese media. The panels are shown on the reverse side so that it was possible to see the substrate and the loop. In addition, two holes for front cameras are visible in the upper right corner.
