A massive price drop puts the Motorola Edge (2021) in the same price bracket as the Galaxy A53 5G, but will that be enough to sway buyers?

the Galaxy A53 5G is one of the best mid-range smartphones available to buy in the United States, although there are a few contenders in the same price range, such as the Pixel 5a 5G on the Android side and the iPhone SE 3 for those who want an iPhone. Another option to consider is the Motorola Edge (2021), which previously wasn’t in the same price bracket but is now worth considering, thanks to a price drop.

The Motorola Edge family is large, with several models, some of which have the same name in different markets but have different specifications. Still, some models have different names in different markets but have the same specifications. An example is the flagship Motorola Edge 30 Pro sold in the US as Motorola Edge+ (2022).

VIDEO OF THE DAY

When Motorola announced the Edge (2021) in August 2021, it carried a price tag of $699. Less than a year later, Motorola slashed it to $449, the same amount Samsung is charging for the Galaxy A53 5G. The two phones differ in appearance. The Motorola Edge (2021) has a triple camera array protruding from its plastic back. It doesn’t hide a fingerprint scanner underneath despite the familiar Motorola Batwing logo on the back. Gorilla Glass protects the screen on the front and the phone has an IP52 rating, which means it will survive use in the rain but not total submersion in water. The Galaxy A53 5G, on the other hand, has a quad rear camera setup arranged on a rectangular island. It also has a plastic back but an IP67 rating (will survive up to 1m in water for 30 minutes). Samsung US is selling the Galaxy A53 5G in black even though it was launched in four colors, while users can buy the Motorola Edge (2021) in Nebula Blue.


The Motorola Edge (2021) has a refresh rate of 144Hz


The Motorola Edge (2021) has a refresh rate of 144Hz

The display is the first striking difference between the two phones. The Motorola Edge rocks a massive 6.8-inch FHD+ LCD display with a centered punch-hole for a 32MP selfie camera. Plus, it has a 144Hz refresh rate and HDR10 support. The Galaxy A53 5G, on the other hand, has a smaller 6.5-inch display, but it’s an AMOLED panel, which means colors should be better. It also has a 32MP camera in its notch, 120Hz refresh rate, and HDR10 support. Also, under the hood of the Galaxy A53 5G is the 5nm Exynos 1280 (with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage) which isn’t as powerful as the 6nm Snapdragon 778G that Motorola has released. inside his phone. On top of that, Edge has more RAM and storage – 8GB and 256GB, respectively – but lacks a MicroSD card slot found on the Galaxy A53 5G.


For the rear cameras, the Motorola Edge has a 108 MP main sensor without optical image stabilization (OIS), an 8 MP 119° ultra wide-angle camera that can also take macro photos and a 2 MP depth sensor. The Galaxy A53 5G has a lower resolution 64MP main camera, but it has OIS. It also has a sharper 12MP ultra-wide-angle camera, a dedicated 5MP camera for macro shooting, and a 5MP depth camera. Both phones have a fingerprint scanner, but it sits below the Galaxy A53 5G display, while the Motorola Edge has its on the right side, acting as the power button. Neither phone has an audio jack, but the Galaxy A53 5G has stereo speakers, while the Motorola Edge 2021 only has one. There’s also NFC, Bluetooth 5.2 (5.1 on the Samsung), dual-band Wi-Fi (Wi-Fi 6E on the Motorola Edge), and a single SIM slot for the US model.


It’s not uncommon to find large batteries on mid-range phones, and the Galaxy A53 5G and Motorola Edge (2021) are no exception as both have a battery capacity of 5000mAh. However, Samsung’s phone supports 25W fast charging and does not come with a charger, while Motorola’s device supports 30W fast charging and comes with a power bank. 30W in the box. On the software side, Samsung is getting the Edge, shipping its phone with Android 12 and promising 4 OS upgrades and five years of security updates. In contrast, the Motorola (Edge 2021) launched with Android 11 with a promise of two OS upgrades and three years of security updates. Motorola has released Android 12, so the Android 13 upgrade will be the last.


People who prefer a clean UI will find Motorola’s Android-like My UX meets that need. Even more interesting is the ‘Ready For feature, which has several functions, one of which is a desktop interface when connected to an external display such as a monitor. Additionally, Samsung sells the Galaxy A53 5G with a free pair of Galaxy Buds Live headphones worth over $100, plus other freebies.

Redmi Note 11T Pro has been confirmed by Xiaomi for the Chinese market. The phone will succeed the Redmi Note 11 Pro launched earlier in the year.

How many phones do you know that have the moniker “Redmi Note 11” in their name? Let’s count – the first came the Redmi Note 11T, which was followed by the Redmi Note 11 4G, Redmi Note 11S, Redmi Note 11 Pro and Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G. Apart from these, the Xiaomi 11i and its “Hypercharge” variant are rebranded versions of the Redmi Note 11 Pro Plus 5G in the Chinese market. Xiaomi now wants to add another variant to this range; this time with the nickname “T”.

On Chinese social media, Redmi shared a poster reading “Note 11T Pro”, with a statement in Mandarin saying “turbo-level performance in all aspects”. It doesn’t say much about the phone or specs, but we’re still guessing or speculating. The Redmi Note 11 Pro uses the MediaTek Dimensity 920 chip and Redmi could definitely use a faster chip. Could we be the Dimensity 8000 powering this Redmi Note?

Redmi Note 11T Pro confirmed by Xiaomi

Redmi has recently diversified the Note series with several models at different price points, all with different specifications. The Redmi Note 11T already exists in India as the company’s most affordable 5G smartphone today. However, this one is a renamed variant of the Redmi Note 11 5G from China. As is the trend, Redmi devices in China and global markets vary wildly.

Eventually, this Redmi Note 11T Pro from China could hit the Indian market later this year, either as a spin-off of the Xiaomi 12 series or as a rebadged Poco device. These devices could replace the Xiaomi 11i series in India and help the company consolidate its position in the sub- 30,000 smartphone spaces.

Currently, the Redmi Note 11T Pro Plus 5G is the most expensive phone that Redmi is currently selling in India. The phone offers Snapdragon 695 chip to bring 5G support or connectivity. It is paired with a 120Hz AMOLED display, a 5000mAh battery powered by a 67W fast charging solution, and a 108MP main rear camera. The same phone is being sold as Poco X4 Pro 5G with a 64MP primary rear camera and a different rear design in India.

TL; DR

  • A handful of Samsung camera features originally launched on the Galaxy S22 series are coming to older phones.
  • Phones as old as the Galaxy S10 series will see at least some of these features.
  • The update will begin this month and continue through June for some older models.

When a new Galaxy S smartphone lands, it usually comes with a few exclusive features. However, only some of these features depend on the advanced hardware inside the device, which means older phones can get them as well.

Updates will start rolling out this month. However, some older models will see Samsung’s new camera features arrive in June. Here’s what you can expect:

Samsung Camera Features: Improved Night Portraits

With a Galaxy S22 phone, you can get great night photography results using Portrait mode through the telephoto lens. This feature will make its way to the Galaxy S21 series, Galaxy S20 series, Galaxy Note 20 series, Galaxy Z Fold 2, and Galaxy Z Fold 3.

Automatic framing

Taking a picture with all your friends can be a little tricky, which is where auto-framing comes in. It zooms in and out and automatically crops things to fit everyone in the frame. It’s coming to the Galaxy S21 series, Galaxy S21 FE, Galaxy Z Fold 3, Galaxy Z Fold 2, and all Galaxy Z Flip models.

Additionally, Samsung will also bring auto-framing to video calls. This will be rolling out to the Galaxy S21 and S20 families along with their respective FE variants. It will also come to the Galaxy Note 20 series, all Galaxy Z Flip models, Galaxy Z Fold 2 and Fold 3, Galaxy S10 series and Galaxy Note 10 series. Galaxy S10 Lite and Galaxy Note 10 Lite models are also included here.

Video call effects

Video calls are an integral part of everyday life these days, and Samsung has camera features that can make your calls more fun or just better quality. On Galaxy S22 series, you can use custom backgrounds and custom mic control settings in Google Meet, Google Duo, Microsoft Teams, WhatsApp, Zoom, Messenger, etc.

These features are coming to a ton of phones, including Galaxy S21 series (including FE), Galaxy S20 series (including FE), Galaxy Note 20 series, all Galaxy Z Flip models, Galaxy Z Fold 2, Galaxy Z Fold 3, Galaxy S10 series (including Lite) and Galaxy Note 10 series (including Lite).

Social media camera improvements

Some social media apps have built-in cameras, and these often aren’t as good as the phone’s default camera app. Samsung helps here by applying some of its optimizations and effects to specific social camera systems, including Snapchat and Instagram.

You’ll only find it on the Galaxy S21 series, Galaxy S21 FE, Galaxy Z Fold 3, and Galaxy Z Flip 3.

Galaxy Z Fold 3 improvements

Finally, the Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 3 will get support for Samsung’s Expert RAW app. This app gives users full control over all phone lenses and does not apply Samsung effects and optimizations. Currently, this is only available on the Galaxy S22 series and the Galaxy S21 Ultra, but Samsung’s foldable flagship from last year will get it soon.

Amazon tribes are reversing the roles of intruders with social media https://meai-modelisme.com/amazon-tribes-are-reversing-the-roles-of-intruders-with-social-media/ Mon, 02 May 2022 21:24:47 +0000 https://meai-modelisme.com/amazon-tribes-are-reversing-the-roles-of-intruders-with-social-media/ RIO DE JANEIRO – It was dusk on April 14 when Francisco Kuruaya heard a boat approaching along the river near his village in Brazil’s Amazon rainforest.

RIO DE JANEIRO – It was dusk on April 14 when Francisco Kuruaya heard a boat approaching along the river near his village in Brazil’s Amazon rainforest. He assumed it was the regular delivery boat bringing gasoline for generators and outboard motors to remote settlements like his own. Instead, what Kuruaya found was a barge dredging his people’s pristine river in search of gold.

Kuruaya had never seen a dredge operating in this area of ​​the Xipaia people’s territory, let alone one so massive; it looked like a floating factory.

Kuruaya, 47, walked to the barge, climbed aboard and confronted the gold diggers. They answered in a harsh voice and he withdrew lest they were armed. But he was also – with a phone – the first he had ever had. Back in his village of Karimaa, his son Thylewa Xipaia forwarded the photos of the mining boat to the tribe’s WhatsApp chat groups.

“Guys, it’s urgent!” he told his fellow tribesmen in an audio message that The Associated Press reviewed. “There’s a barge here on Pigeons Island. It’s huge and it’s destroying the whole island. They almost took his phone.”

A d

Several days into the journey, in the nearest town of Altamira, Kuruaya’s daughter, Juma Xipaia, received the frantic messages. She recorded her own video with a muffled voice and watery eyes warning that armed conflict was imminent – then uploaded it to social media.

Within hours, the word had spread to the world.

The episode illustrates the advance of the internet into vast, remote rainforest areas that until recently had no way to quickly share visual evidence of environmental crimes. A rapidly expanding network of outposts allows indigenous groups to use phones, video cameras and social media to galvanize the public and pressure authorities to respond quickly to threats from gold miners, land grabbers and loggers.

Until now, indigenous communities have relied on radio to transmit their distress calls. Environmental groups and indigenous peoples then relayed them to the media and the public. But the nonprofits have come under fire from far-right Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, who advocates the legalization of mining and land leasing in protected indigenous territories. He castigated the organizations as unreliable actors, disconnected from the true desires of indigenous peoples and in the pay of global environmental benefactors.

A d

Videos and photos coming directly from indigenous peoples are more difficult to dismiss, forcing authorities as well as the public to consider the reality on the ground.

“When used properly, technology helps a lot in real-time surveillance and reporting,” said Nara Baré, head of the Coordination of Indigenous Organizations of the Brazilian Amazon group, in a phone interview. “External pressure to get the federal government to act in Xipaia territory has been very strong. Technology has been the main tool for this.

Connectivity does not only allow you to issue an alert on social networks. The Brazilian Federal Prosecutor’s Office has set up a website to register reported crimes and receive uploaded visual material. Previously, residents of remote communities had to make the long and expensive trip to the nearest town with a federal prosecutor’s office.

The territory of Xipaia is part of an area of ​​pristine rainforest known as Terra do Meio (Middle-earth) which is dotted with dozens of indigenous and traditional river communities. Internet connection was scarce there until mid-2020, when a group of associations, including Health in Harmony and the Socio-Environmental Institute, financed the installation of 17 antennas throughout the vast region.

A d

Priority was given to communities with health centers or market centers for the production and sale of forest products, such as Brazil nuts. The signal can be painfully slow, especially on rainy days, but it connected people who were previously off the grid and is enough to get photos and videos out of the woods.

“The strategy was to improve communication and avoid unnecessary trips to town,” said Marcelo Salazar, coordinator of the Health in Harmony program in Brazil. “The Internet facilitates problems of health, education and forest economics.” The fight against environmental crime has been an added benefit, he added.

Four out of five Xipaia communities are now connected. Karimaa, the village where the barge was first spotted, has had internet since July 2020. Just three days after installation, when a teenager suffered a head injury, a town doctor was able to assess his condition through photos sent on WhatsApp. This avoided a costly and complicated medical evacuation during the COVID-19 pandemic.

A d

But the mining dredge case marked the first time the Xipaia used the internet to protect their territory. In addition to sounding the alarm, four villages used WhatsApp to quickly organize a group of warriors to confront the miners. Painted with urucum, a local fruit that produces red ink, and armed with bows, arrows and shotguns, they piled into a small boat, according to Juma Xipaia. By the time they reached where the barge was, however, it was gone.

Some 1,300 kilometers (800 miles) to the west, in the Amazon state of Rondonia, internet access has enabled the Uru-Eu-Wau-Wau to take photography and video courses online to to be able to chronicle deforestation by land grabbers. The three-day training in 2020 was conducted via Zoom.

That effort produced the documentary “The Territory,” which won awards at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, the Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival and others. Throughout his production, American director Alex Pritz relied on WhatsApp to communicate with his newly trained cameramen.

A d

Tangaãi Uru-Eu-Wau-Wau is a teacher-turned-cameraman who visited the Danish festival and then spoke with the AP via WhatsApp from his remote village. He said the film changed people’s perception of the indigenous peoples of Brazil. “In Copenhagen…I received many questions. They knew about the natural wonders of Brazil, but they didn’t know about the indigenous peoples who are fighting for their territories.”

Elsewhere in the Amazon, the Internet has not yet arrived. So when illegal miners killed two members of the Yanomami tribe in June 2020, news of the crime took two weeks to arrive due to the remoteness of the area. To prevent this from happening again, Yanomami organizations are looking for better connectivity. After the village of Palimiu along the Uraricoera river suffered a series of attacks committed by minors in May 2021, the Yanomami managed to install an antenna there. Since then, the violence has decreased.

A d

Bolsonaro’s repeated promises to legalize mining and other activities on indigenous lands have fueled invasions of territories, which are often islands of forest amid vast ranches. Indigenous and environmental groups estimate that there are around 20,000 illegal miners in Yanomami territory, roughly the size of Portugal. Bolsonaro’s government claims there are 3,500.

Deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon jumped 76% in 2021 from 2018, the year before Bolsonaro took office, according to official data from Brazil’s space agency, which uses satellites to monitor forest loss. .

Most Internet connections in the Amazon remain slow, even in medium-sized cities. That could soon change. Last November, Brazilian Communications Minister Fábio Faria met with billionaire Elon Musk to discuss a partnership to improve connectivity in rural areas of the world’s largest tropical rainforest.

A d

The Communications Ministry, however, says the talks have not progressed and no progress has been made. Musk’s SpaceX company did not respond to emailed requests for comment.

Some fear that indigenous groups like the Xipaia will be the only beneficiaries of greater internet penetration in the Amazon region. Illegal miners often co-opt local indigenous leaders, surreptitiously communicating on messaging apps. The conversations, sometimes aided by clandestine networks, can allow miners to hide heavy machinery, or warn them of impending raids by authorities, allowing them to flee.

In Roraima state, where most Yanomami territory is located, the AP contacted an internet service provider that offers wifi to an illegal gold mine for $2,600, plus $690 a month. Small clandestine craft fly equipment for installation.

“It’s a double-edged sword,” Health in Harmony’s Salazar said of increased connectivity.

A d

But for Juma Xipaia, the new connection means increased protection and visibility for his people. After posting her tearful video, she racked up views and was picked up by local and international media. Within two days, an airborne operation involving Federal Police, National Guard and environmental agencies took place. They located the dredge hidden behind vegetation on the banks of the Iriri River with seven miners on board.

In a country where environmental crime in the Amazon generally goes unchecked, the rapid and successful response underscored the power of indigenous networks.

“After making many cries for help, I decided to make the video. Then it worked. The phone kept ringing,” Juma Xipaia said over the phone. “It was very quick after the video.”

TL; DR

  • OnePlus has announced the OnePlus 10R for India.
  • The phone is basically a rebranded version of the OnePlus Ace only in China.
  • The phone starts at INR 38,999 (~$509) and will go on general sale on May 4th.

OnePlus launched the OnePlus Ace last week, which was a rebadged Realme GT Neo 3. Between the high-end silicon, 120Hz FHD+ OLED display, fast charging, and around $387 price tag, there was a lot to like about the phone.

Unfortunately, the OnePlus Ace was a Chinese-only version. However, the company just announced the OnePlus 10R, and it is indeed a rebranded OnePlus Ace.

OnePlus 10R: specs and features

Charging the OnePlus 10R

C. Scott Brown/Android Authority

Starting with the OnePlus 10R, it’s virtually identical to the OnePlus Ace. That means you get that neat two-tone back cover, with a striped pattern on the left side and a smooth finish on the right. The similarities are just beginning though.

This latest OnePlus phone offers a Dimensity 8100-Max processor, a 6.7-inch FHD+ 120Hz OLED display (20.1:9, Gorilla Glass 5, HDR10+) and a triple rear camera system. The latter consists of a 50MP IMX766 main camera with OIS, an 8MP ultra wide lens (119.7 degree field of view) and a 2MP macro shooter. A 16MP camera is available for selfies and video calls.

Just like the OnePlus Ace and the Realme GT Neo 3, the OnePlus Ace also comes in two variants. There is a variant with 80W charging and a 5000mAh battery, as well as a model with 150W charging and a 4500mAh battery. The latter, usefully known as the OnePlus 10R with 150W SuperVOOC Endurance Edition, also promises to retain 80% of its battery capacity after 1,600 charge cycles. So you should only see major degradation after about four years.

Either way, you get fast charging here. The 80W version promises a 1 to 100% charge in 32 minutes, while the 150W variant promises to go from zero to 100% in 17 minutes.

A major area of ​​differentiation is in the area of ​​software. The OnePlus 10R comes with Oxygen OS 12.1 on Android 12, compared to Ace and Realme GT Neo 3 offering Color OS in China.

A icing on the software cake is that the phone will receive three “major” updates to the Android operating system and four years of security patches.

Other notable features include an in-display fingerprint sensor, dual stereo speakers, Bluetooth 5.2 and Wi-Fi 6.

Price and availability

The OnePlus 10R with 80W charging starts at INR 38,999 (~$509) for the 8GB/128GB model, while the 12GB/256GB variant sells for INR 42,999 (~$561). Expect to find the phone in Forest Green and Sierra Black colorways.

Meanwhile, the 150W version starts at INR 43,999 (~$574). It only comes in one color and memory configuration: Sierra Black with 12GB of RAM and 256GB of internal storage.

Either way, the phone will hit general sales on May 4, 2022. You can find it at OnePlus.fr and Amazon.co.uk as well as a few other third-party retailers. This phone is unlikely to reach markets other than India, as other “R” phones have always been exclusive to India.

Visitors examine a 3D-capable HDC-SDT750 camcorder at the Panasonic booth at the IFA 2010 consumer electronics and technology show at Messe Berlin on September 3, 2010 in Berlin, Germany. IFA 2010 will be open to the public from September 3-8.

The scientists involved observed the unique bifocal compound eye system of the trilobite, a prehistoric marine arthropod. They discovered that this extinct animal had eyes that were very sensitive to light field information.

With this unusual ability, a trilobite can focus on near and far objects, allowing it to more effectively avoid predators.

Now, a new study has explained how the new lens copies the ability of the trilobite’s eyes.

Trilobite type camera lens

According to ScienceNews‘ latest report, the new study titled “Trilobite-inspired neural nanophotonic brightfield camera with extreme depth of fieldrevealed a new camera lens that can focus on both near and far subjects.

The advantage of this new lens is that it can deliver an extreme depth of field effect in a single image. However, there is a problem. The middle distance can be quite blurry.

Ivo Ihrke, a computer imaging researcher at the University of Siegen, explained that capturing more depth information can provide better image output, allowing experts to see more detail.

Structure of trilobite type camera lens

The camera experts involved were able to create the trilobite-like lens by making an array of tiny lenses, forming the so-called metalens.

Because of this, more light can enter the camera lens. On the other hand, flat glass was created to house tiny lenses (nanopilars).

These nanopillars are placed at different heights so that light can pass through them at different levels. The short nanopillars are intended to capture close subjects and the long ones to distant objects.

If you want to know more about this new advanced bifocal camera lens, you can visit this link.

Meanwhile, a new MIT camera lens was recently unveiled which can focus light faster and more efficiently.

On the other hand, ultra-thin metal lenses could soon replace bulky lenses in cameras, phones and telescopes.

Seoul, South Korea (StudyFinds.org) – Holograms could become the next big smartphone feature after scientists announced they’ve created new light sensors inside a camera. The sensor can detect the polarization of light to create 3D images without the need for a bulky filter, according to the team in South Korea.

Until now, viewing holograms was only possible using a large, specialized camera equipped with a polarizing filter. However, scientists at the Korea Institute of Science and Technology have found a solution that means they could soon become part of people’s daily lives.

“Research into downsizing and integrating individual elements is needed to ultimately miniaturize holographic systems. The results of our research will lay the foundation for the future development of miniaturized holographic camera sensor modules,” says study author Dr. Do Hwang in a Press release.

How did scientists make a filter small enough to project holograms?

Digital and smartphone cameras contain a type of sensor called a photodiode that converts light into current signals. Giving these sensors the ability to detect polarized light would provide them with new information and give them the ability to store 3D holograms.

Previous attempts to improve these sensors in phones with polarized filters missed the mark because they were simply too big. While sensors are less than a micrometer, bias filters are several hundred micrometers long.

To overcome this, the researchers developed photodiodes using two semiconductor materials, rhenium diselenide and tungsten diselenide, also known as n-type and p-type. This allowed the device to detect different wavelengths of light from ultraviolet near infrared.

It was even able to detect polarization features in the near-infrared region, the study reveals. The researchers used the photodiodes to create an image sensor that was able to capture holograms. Their new technology could open the door to a range of new visual technologies.

“The new sensor can additionally detect near-infrared light, as well as previously undetectable visible light, opening up new opportunities in various fields such as 3D night vision, autonomous driving, biotechnology, and near-infrared data acquisition for analysis and restoration of cultural assets,” concludes study co-author Dr. Min-Chul Park.

The results are published in the journal ACS Nano.

Recently, we learned that Google was working on an app to make switching from iPhone to Android easier, and now that the app has been launched, you don’t have to save everything to Google Drive or fiddle with cables.

The application, called Switch to Android, lets you choose what data to transfer, with options like contacts, calendar events, photos, and videos. It also provides tips, such as turning off iMessage so you don’t miss texts, and it includes information on how to transfer photos from iCloud.

More leaked iPhone 14 schematics, showing the differences between the four models https://meai-modelisme.com/more-leaked-iphone-14-schematics-showing-the-differences-between-the-four-models/ Sun, 17 Apr 2022 20:41:03 +0000 https://meai-modelisme.com/more-leaked-iphone-14-schematics-showing-the-differences-between-the-four-models/ It’s almost carved in stone that this year’s high-end iPhone models, the The 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max will sport a new design, while the regular models, the The 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max will carry over the design from 2022.

It’s almost carved in stone that this year’s high-end iPhone models, the The 6.1-inch iPhone 14 Pro and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Pro Max will sport a new design, while the regular models, the The 6.1-inch iPhone 14 and 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max will carry over the design from 2022. An account by the name of Ultra Cosmic Machine (Going through ShrimpApplePro) has released rough schematics sent in by accessory makers and while they don’t show the entire design, they seem to back up some of the previous rumours.

First, Apple is done with the mini model after its dismal performance in the market and will replace it with a non-Pro Max model that will sit above the entry-level model.

Another thing these images seem to confirm is that the iPhone 14 Pro and Pro Max will have significant camera bumps. The dimensions of the camera bulge have apparently increased due to the rumor that the new 48MP camera sensor is set to replace the 12MP module.

While this higher-resolution sensor could further bolster the iPhone’s reputation as a best camera phone, it will be up to 35% taller than the sensor it replaces and the height of the 7P lens covering it could also increase by 5-10%.
The iPhone 14 and 14 Max will come with relatively smaller camera bumps, and unlike the Pro variants which will have three cameras, they are expected to have a dual camera system.
The screens of the phones are not accurately represented in these images, but luckily there are lots of leaks to fall back on. The Pro models will allegedly have pill and hole cutouts instead of a notch and only these variants are expected to have 120Hz screens, which will be purchased from Samsung and LG. Pros should also run on the more advanced A16 Pro chip.

Regular and Max models of iPhone 14 are expected to stay with the notch and they may also retain the A15 Bionic chip, although it’s likely that Apple will make some changes and rebrand it as A16 Bionic.

The new line may also feature satellite capabilities and could offer more base RAM than the current line.

try to search video on number 4 means for east asian countries.

The iPhone 4 at the time, China was not yet a huge market, and Westerners weren’t too fond of the number 13 superstition.

JustSomeRandomGuy, 59 minutes agoimagine the looks of the fanboys who defended Apple saying they don’t need more… moreWhat does it look like? I’m still on one camera on my iPhone XR and don’t need anything else. This especially applies to 99% of garbage phones that have fake token cameras bolted to the back just so they can boast X number of cameras. With a camera, I just take out my phone and take pictures. How do you capture moments without spending 5 minutes picking the right one? It’s useless. Sure, there’s that small percentage of where the ultrawide would be useful or a telephoto lens with 15x zoom, but I’ll survive. And so would most users. It’s just a natural progression of things that even Apple eventually decides to adopt feature X or Y. Apple is in no rush to push so many fancy features to their users and then forget about them like phone makers do Android in desperation to sell you something new every year…

SMIRNAS, 1 hour agoohoo,, apple is skipping number 4 because chinese people hate number 4They didn’t ignore the iPhone 4. In fact, the iPhone 4 was one of the most popular and iconic iPhones ever made… They repurposed its flat-sided design so much for the iPhone 12 Number 13 is also considered “unlucky”. “In many places, the iPhone 13 exists though. I don’t think Apple cares much about superstition.

notafanboy, 1 hour agoWhat’s the excuse for not including the periscope camera in the upcoming iPhone 14 series? It…MoreSeveral Android OEMs have ditched extended zoom ranges and settled for 3x style zoom.

This problem is the lingo, and Apple is certainly to blame here. Their main reason for introducing the second telephoto lens on the iPhone 7 Plus was to enable portrait photography. But they kept saying the word “zoom”. Well, it was obvious that there was little benefit to 2x or 3x zooming outside of portrait-focused photos.

I maintain that Apple hasn’t really gotten to grips with proper zoom yet, and all of their telephoto efforts have mostly been geared more towards getting better portraits.

Hopefully they eventually adopt a Samsung-style solution and offer both a “portrait” style telephoto lens as well as a proper “zoom” telephoto lens.

Although knowing this site won’t stop people from complaining about Apple anyway, nothing ever will 🤷

imagine the looks of the fanboys who defended Apple saying they don’t need more cameras or they don’t need a periscope camera and all that when they read this. the thing is they always said apple didn’t need the x feature until apple introduced it and they claim their hypocritical fanboyism never existed and apple invented the feature x

What’s the excuse for not including the periscope camera in the upcoming iPhone 14 series? It is simply unacceptable. The year is 2022 and Apple still hasn’t introduced a periscope in their LMAO phones and I usually defend Apple because most of the hate they get is undeserved, but that??? Absolutely indefensible. Bruh, the Huawei P30 Pro from 2019 had a periscope camera and it was crazy. Today, the technology has improved even further! But Apple is stuck with mediocre 3x zoom. HAHA! Having owned several phones with periscope cameras – Huawei P40 Pro, S21U and now my current Pixel 6 Pro – I will NEVER buy a phone without one. Never. So thank you but no thank you Apple. 3x is no longer enough. Sorry!

?

Oh, it’ll get a lot of comments, all saying “Apple is so behind the times Android had this since 2016 BC”.

there1602

so the iphone 15 will have 4 cameras? if they keep these 3.
