Everything We Need to Know about the new iPhone 12 Line-Up

Apple will be introducing the new 12th generation iPhones to the public during an autumn event. There were speculations on the Internet that in 2020, four new devices will be shown: iPhone 12, iPhone 12 Max, iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max. As such, we tried to find as much information as we can that is available on the Internet about the new products and we want to share this interesting information with you. The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Max will receive a glass body with an aluminium frame. In turn, the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max will be equipped with a stainless steel frame. There will be more memory - the minimum amount of user storage will be 128 GB while the maximum user storage is 512GB. What New iPhones Apple Will Show On September, Apple will unveil four smartphone devices, three improved 2019 models and one completely new model. For the first time in a long time, Apple will show a device with an enlarged display up to 6.7 inches - the current maximum is 6.5 inches. The iPhone 11 and 11 Pro receivers will have a similar 6.1-inch display. The most interesting novelty will be the base model with a 5.4-inch screen - the iPhone 12. That is, the device will turn out to be a logical continuation of the first generation of the iPhone SE, and users will finally get a real second iteration of SE, albeit under a different name. Display Options in the new iPhone 12 Series Earlier, there were information that the basic representatives of the new line of gadgets, namely the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro, will receive a standard display resolution with a pixel density of no more than 326 ppi. However, recent leaks from trusted source suggest otherwise. It turns out that the iPhone 12 and 12 Pro will get the same pixel density as the older models with 425 ppi. The smallest display will have a resolution of 960 x 2079 pixels, while others will have Full HD+ resolution. All four gadgets are guaranteed to receive an OLED matrix, and all Pro modifications will also acquire a matrix refresh rate of up to 120 Hz. Apple invented the Display Zoom technology in order to ensure that the images on large and compact gadgets will be approximately the same in scale. Cameras In The Future 12th iPhone Line-Up To be honest, little is known about the cameras. There is some general information, but nothing specific. From the main: iPhone 12 Pro and Pro Max will be equipped with a LiDAR sensor, which is necessary for the functioning of augmented reality. The two devices will receive matrix stabilization in a wide-angle photo module, which the recently released flagship Vivo X50 Pro can boast of. They will have three cameras in total: regular + wide-angle + telephoto. iPhone 12 - this smartphone will receive a dual main camera with a regular and wide-angle photo module. At the same time, all devices will be equipped with a new autofocus, in the mechanism of which the springs have been replaced with balls. Why it is necessary is not really known yet, but most likely it is to speed up the focusing time and make the mechanism more reliable. iPhone 12 Processors And Performance There is little information about the new chipset, which will be built in all four new devices. What is known: the new processor will be called Apple A14 (Bionic). In terms of power, the new chipset should be 15% more powerful than its predecessor Apple A13, and energy efficiency should improve by 30%. There is unconfirmed information about the passage of the Apple A14 Bionic synthetic benchmark GeekBench, in which the chip scored 4,612 points, which is higher than the powerful A12X installed in the iPad Pro 2020 (4,568 points). Against the background of Qualcomm, such a result looks monstrous at all, since the Snapdragon 865 demonstrates only 3,520 points. Battery Capacity of Future iPhones of The 12th Series Rumours regarding batteries and power supplies are somewhat contradictory and may seems a little strange. The fact is that some iPhone 12 will lose the power supply unit (PSU). They said users have old chargers, so why do they need new ones? But this is illogical, since most either sell old gadgets or pass them on to relatives for use, so they do not have any free power supply unit. If the lack of PSUs in the boxes of new iPhones turns out to be true, then this is a failure. The fact is that most will not buy original chargers, especially in the case of the most affordable iPhone 12, and this is the risk of breaking smartphones. It is also reported that the new gadgets will receive an updated charging cable, namely Lightning - Type-C in a fabric braid. That is, the old PSUs will definitely not fit and there will be a need to buy them if they are not put in the box. In general, everything is strange and not yet clear. The third piece of news concerns the battery capacity of future iPhones. There is evidence that the smallest representative of the new line will receive a 2,227 mAh battery. 6.1-inch devices will receive a 2,775 mAh battery, and the maximum is prepared for the 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max - a whopping 3,687 mAh. In fact, this is much less than last year's iPhone 11, where the minimum battery capacity was 3,050 mAh, and the maximum was almost 4,000 mAh. Even the fact that the technical process of the new chip will be equal to 5 nanometres instead of seven does not mean to say that the battery capacity will not suffer. After all, the power will grow, and the 5G modem does not really care about the process technology, so the new iPhones will receive less battery capacity than their predecessors.

Big Overview of the Honor 30 Line

Back in spring 2020, Honor, a subsidiary of Huawei brand, began to deploy a new flagship line of smartphones - Honor 30. But the brand decided to go beyond the top devices and, showed a simplified version of Honor 30 Lite. The entire line-up consists of 5 smartphones, which increases the chances of a successful sales campaign for the manufacturer. In today's article, we would like to get acquainted with all the devices included in the line-up, so as to ensure that you know which device is best suitable for you.  Honor 30 Lite (Youth Edition) - Overview and Characteristics of the Phone on Mediatek Let’s start with the most affordable device in the entire line. At first glance, the smartphone doesn't stand out from other inexpensive devices from competing companies, but its chip is Dimensity 800 processor from Mediatek. What does it give you? It is simple - support for 5G networks (SA and NSA). At the same time, the Dimensity 800 chip itself turned out to be very advanced - energy efficient due to the 7 nm process and powerful, thanks to the 4-core Cortex-A76 and gaming owning to the video core Mali-G57.  In general, the smartphone does not offer anything super special, but it is worth mentioning advantages in the form of a display with a usable area of more than 90% and a refresh rate of 90 Hz, 9-layer back glass and the presence of three cameras on the rear panel. See below for more detailed specifications.Honor 30 Lite - Features  Case: metal frame and 9-layer glass Gorilla Glass; Screen: 6.5 inch, IPS matrix, 2400x1080 resolution, 20:9 format, 90 Hz refresh rate and 180 Hz touch layer frequency, usable area 91%; Processor: Eight-core Mediatek Dimensity 800 chipset, 4 Cortex-A76 to 2.0GHz cores + 4 Cortex-A55 to 2.0 GHz cores, 7 nm processor; Video accelerator: Mali-G57 MP4, 720 MHz; RAM: 6 or 8 GB, LPDDR4X, dual channel; User Memory: 128 GB + nano memcard 2; Rear Camera: 48 MP Samsung GM2 (f/1.8, pixel 1.6 μm Quad Bayer), 8 MP Wideangle (f/2.4, pixel 1.12 μm, 120 degree view), 2 MP Macro Camera with f/2.4, 10x Electronic Zoom, Image Stabilization; Front camera: 16 MP with f/2.2, face recognition; SIM: 2 Nano-SIM with support for LTE Cat.12 and 5G SA/NSA networks; Connections: 2.4 + 5 GHz Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.1, Type-C, 3.5mm jacket; Fingerprint Scanner: Yes, on the side edge; OS: Android 10 + EMUI 10; Battery capacity: 4000 mAh with fast Huawei Super Charge to 22.5 W; Dimensions: 75.32 x 160 x 8.35 mm Weight: 192 grams Honor 30S - Overview and Features of the Sub Flagship on Kirin 820 Usually, smartphones with index "S" are more advanced, faster and more modern. However, Honor has a different view on device naming, so the model Honor 30S is weaker than the Honor 30. It is a sub-flagship rather than a top-level device. The device do not have any special delicacies and boasts only a holographic surface of the back panel, no drop-shaped cut under the front camera and thin frames like in top smartphones. Under the hood of the device works Huawei Kirin 820 chip - this is a powerful solution, as well as energy efficient, because it is built according to the standards of 7-nm process. There is an ultra-fast charge up to 40 W (70% in 30 minutes). In other respects, the device does not differ much from the Honor 30 Lite, that is, it is its improved version, rather than a slightly simplified version of the Honor 30. Honor 30S - Features  Case: metal frame and holographic glass Gorilla Glass; Screen: 6.5 inch, IPS-matrix, 2400x1080 resolution, 20:9, HDR10, NTSC 96%, useful area 90%; Processor: Huawei Kirin 820 eight-core chipset, 1 Cortex-A76 core + 3 Cortex-A76 cores to 2.22 GHz + 4 Cortex-A55 cores to 1.84 GHz, 7 nm processor; Video accelerator: Mali-G57 MP6, 720 MHz (Kirin Gaming + GPU Turbo); NPU Neuroblock; RAM: 8 GB, LPDDR4X, dual channel; User Memory: 128 GB/256 and without card support; Rear Camera: 64 MP Samsung GW2 (f/1.8, pixel 1.6 μm Quad Bayer), 8 MP Wideangle (f/2.4, pixel 1.12 μm, 120 degree view), 2 MP Depth Sensor, 2 MP Macro with f/2.4, 10x Electronic Zoom, Image Stabilization; Front camera: 16 MP with f/2.2, face recognition; SIM: 2 Nano-SIM with support for LTE Cat.21 and 5G SA/NSA networks; Connections: 2.4 + 5 GHz Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.1, Type-C, 3.5mm jacket; Fingerprint Scanner: Yes, on the side edge; OS: Android 10 + Magic UI 3.1; Battery capacity: 4000 mAh with fast Huawei Super Charge up to 40 W; Dimensions: 75 x 162.31 x 8.58 mm Weight: 190 grams; Honor 30 - Review and Characteristics of the Flagship of 2020 Honor 30 is available in two versions: Regular and Premium. However, as is often the case, the difference lies only in the amount of memory, which means that it is actually the same device. In appearance, the Honor 30 is a conventional frameless smartphone with a hole for the front of the display, as well as a vertical camera unit at the back. The body is a combination of tempered glass and metal. The fingerprint scanner is located under the display, not on the side edge, and all because of the OLED-display. As for performance wise, it is excellent, though not the last chip Kirin 990 is used, but a slightly simplified version - Kirin 985. This solution differs from the top processor by the distribution of cores and the number of graphics blocks. Judging by benchmarks, the Kirin 985 is weaker than the Kirin 990, but about 25% and mostly due to a less powerful graphics block (there are fewer cores exactly half). Naturally, it's a game solution, but not a flagship one. With cameras, Honor 30 everything is great: 40 MP basic module is complemented by 8 MP wide and 8 MP TV with 5x optical zoom + there is a macro camera for 2 MP. See below for more detailed specifications. Honor 30 - Features Case: metal frame and holographic glass Gorilla Glass; Screen: 6.53 inches, OLED-matrix, resolution 2400x1080, format 20:9, HDR10, DCI-P3, useful area 90%; Processor: Huawei Kirin 985 eight-core chipset, 1 Cortex-A76 to 2.56 GHz + 3 Cortex-A76 to 2.4 GHz + 4 Cortex-A55 to 1.84 GHz, 7 nm processor; Video accelerator: Mali-G77 MP8, 800 MHz (Kirin Gaming + GPU Turbo); NPU Neuroblock; RAM: 6/8 GB, LPDDR4X, dual channel; User Memory: 128 GB/256 + nano memcard 2; Rear Camera: 40 MP Sony IMX600 with RYYB Sensor (f/1.8, pixel 1.6 μm Quad Bayer), 8 MP Wide Angle (f/2.4, pixel 1.12 μm, 120 degree view), 8 MP TV camera with 5x optical zoom, 2 MP macro camera with f/2.4, 8 phase auto focus, optical and electronic image stabilization; Front camera: 32 MP with f/2.0, face recognition; SIM: 2 Nano-SIM with support for LTE Cat.21 and 5G SA/NSA networks; Connections: Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac to 2.4 + 5 GHz, Bluetooth 5.0, Type-C 2.0, NFC module; Fingerprint Scanner: Available, located under the display; Sound: stereo speakers; OS: Android 10 + Magic UI 3.1; Battery capacity: 4000 mAh with fast Huawei Super Charge up to 40 W; Dimensions: 74.18 x 160.34 x 8.1 mm Weight: 185 grams; Honor 30 Pro and Honor 30 Pro+ - An Overview of the Best Camera Phones among the Flagships 2020 Honor 30 Pro and Pro+ do not differ in appearance, but they are very different from what the other Honor 30 line-up offer. First of all, the devices have an infinite waterfall screen. Secondly, both devices are equipped with a double front camera. Thirdly, the gadgets are the only ones in the range that have a really flagship iron based on the Huawei Kirin 990 processor. Smartphones are different from each other and this is mainly true for cameras. Thus, if the usual Honor 30 Pro has a triple camera with 40 MP + 8 MP + 16 MP and a wide angle camera with no autofocus. The Honor 30 Pro+ cameras offer 50 MP + 8 MP + 16 MP and each module has autofocus. The Pro+ version also has wireless charging with 256GB of memory space. In other respects, they are identical, up to the point where the size of the body does not differ by a fraction of a millimetre. In general, this is a worthy rival to other flagship smartphones in 2020.

Big Review of the Samsung Galaxy A31, Galaxy A41, Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A71 - features, prices and which one to buy?

Last winter, in the last days of 2019, Samsung released two full-screen smartphones of medium level - Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A71. In spring 2020, the company decided to upgrade and budget devices, also by rolling out two devices - Galaxy A31 and Galaxy A41. All four smartphones differ in appearance is not strong, but in body materials and everything is identical: plastic cover and tempered glass that covers the screen. However, we've all got used to this kind of thing and now it's more important what's inside, what characteristics the devices have. Here smartphones can really offer users different performance, cameras and battery capacity. Now let's take a closer look at the question. The Samsung Galaxy A31 - overview, features and price. The Galaxy A31 is a strong budget machine with a very advanced filling. First of all, it differs from its competitors by its AMOLED screen with a built-in fingerprint scanner. Also it has a good, we can say, gaming processor, which allows you to play even the heaviest projects on the medium and low settings of graphics with high FPS. The camera offers 4 photomodules, although in practice the sense is only from three: the main, wide angle and depth sensor (for portrait photos). The front also shoots well in sufficient light. There is NFC, which is important, and a battery of 5000 mAh provides you with more than 2 days of use. At the same time, there is a quick charge, even if only by 15 W. On average, for this smartphone is asked from 240 -260 USD and it is not much, given the advantages of the device. The disadvantages can only be attributed to the plastic housing. Features of the Galaxy A31 Case: metal frame, plastic and glass Gorilla Glass 3; Screen: 6.4 inches, Super AMOLED matrix, 2400x1080 resolution, 19.5:9 format; Processor: Mediatek Helio G70 eight-core chipset, 2 Cortex-A75 to 2.0 GHz cores + 6 Cortex-A55 to 1.7 GHz cores, 12 nm process; Video accelerator: Mali-G52 2EEMC2, 820 MHz; RAM: 4/6 or 8 GB, LPDDR4X, dual channel; User Memory: 64/128 GB + micro SD; Rear Camera: 48 MP Samsung GM2 (f/2.0, pixel 1.6 μm Quad Bayer), 8 MP Wide-angle (f/2.2, pixel 1.12 μm), 5 MP Macro Camera with f/2.4, 5 MP Depth Sensor with f/2.2, Super Phase Autofocus, Image Stabilization; Front camera: 20 MP with f/2.2, face recognition; SIM: 2 Nano-SIM with support for LTE Cat.10; Connections: Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac at 2.4 + 5 GHz, Bluetooth 5.0, Type-C, NFC, 3.5mm jacket; Fingerprint Scanner: Available, under the screen; OS: Android 10 + One UI 2.0 Battery capacity: 5,000 mAh with quick charge up to 15 W; Dimensions: 73.1 x 159.3 x 8.6 mm Weight: 185 grams. Samsung Galaxy A41 - overview, specifications and price It's different from the Galaxy A31 in a minimal way. Although it has a different processor, no fourth camera, it's not really that important. The point is that Helio P65 is actually an analogue of Helio G70, only with slightly more torn Cortex-A55 cores. In practice, the difference in performance is not noticeable, and in benchmarks it is minimal (in games everything is the same, as an identical video kernel is used). As for cameras - there is no macro camera, which is rarely used and which is PR only by marketers. But the important difference is that the Galaxy A41 is more compact, and significantly, which is why its battery capacity is 1500 mAh less. In other words, the autonomy of the device is about 1.5 days of active use. The cost of a smartphone is about the same as the Galaxy A31. That's why when choosing between these gadgets one should focus only on dimensions and battery. Features of the Galaxy A41 Case: metal frame, plastic and glass Gorilla Glass 3, IP65 and IP68 protection; Screen: 6.1 inch, Super AMOLED matrix, 2400x1080 resolution, 19.5:9 format, HDR10 support; Processor: Eight-core Mediatek Helio P65 chipset, 2 Cortex-A75 to 2.0 GHz cores + 6 Cortex-A55 to 1.95 GHz cores, 12 nm processor; Video accelerator: Mali-G52 MP2, 820 MHz; RAM: 4 GB, LPDDR4X, dual channel; User Memory: 64 GB + micro SD; Rear Camera: 48 MP Samsung GM2 (f/2.0, pixel 1.6 μm Quad Bayer), 8 MP Wide Angle (f/2.2, pixel 1.12 μm), 5 MP Depth Sensor with f/2.2, Super Phase Autofocus, Image Stabilization; Front camera: 25 MP with f/2.2, face recognition; SIM: 2 Nano-SIM with LTE Cat.6 support; Connections: 2.4 + 5 GHz Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 5.0, Type-C, NFC, 3.5mm jacket; Fingerprint Scanner: Available, under the screen; OS: Android 10 + One UI 2.0 Battery capacity: 3,500 mAh with quick charge up to 15 W; Dimensions: 69.8 x 149.8 x 7.9 mm Weight: 152 grams. Samsung Galaxy A51 - overview, features and price Very controversial smartphone. The fact is that it looks more modern with a front camera, inscribed in the hole in the display. And the serial number of the device indicates that it is higher than the Galaxy A31 and A41. What is it? In reality, the Galaxy A51 is weaker than the younger brothers, not much, but weaker. Moreover, it is expressed both in terms of the processor block and graphics. If you believe Antutu, the difference between Exynos 9611 and Helio G70/P65 on the CPU is insignificant - up to 5% is not in favor of Exynos. But according to the graph, the lag of the Samsung brand chip is significant - up to 30%. It looks strange also because the Galaxy A51 has a 3-core G72-accelerator, and the younger brothers - G52 with only 2 cores. The price of the smartphone also ranges from USD300 (depending on the amount of memory). But if we talk about what to choose, the Galaxy A31 will be preferable for games, however strange it may seem, but for the convenience of the Galaxy A41. Smartphone Galaxy A51 - a choice for those who want to stand out in the crowd through a more spectacular display. Features of the Galaxy A51. Case: metal frame, plastic and glass Gorilla Glass 3, IP65 and IP68 protection; Screen: 6.5 inch, Super AMOLED matrix, 2400x1080 resolution, 19.5:9 format, HDR10 support; Processor: Samsung Exynos 9611 eight-core chipset, 4 Cortex-A73 to 2.3 GHz + 4 Cortex-A53 to 1.7 GHz, 10 nm processor; Video accelerator: Mali-G72 MP3, 820 MHz; RAM: 4/6/8 GB, LPDDR4X, dual channel; User Memory: 64/128 GB + micro SD; Rear Camera: 48 MP Samsung GM2 (f/2.0, pixel 1.6 μm Quad Bayer), 12 MP Wide Angle (f/2.2, pixel 1.12 μm), 5 MP Depth Sensor with f/2.2, Super Phase Autofocus, Electronic Image Stabilization; Front camera: 32 MP with f/2.2, face recognition; SIM: 2 Nano-SIM with support for LTE Cat.12; Connections: Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac at 2.4 + 5 GHz, Bluetooth 5.0, Type-C, NFC, 3.5mm jacket; Fingerprint Scanner: Available, under the screen; OS: Android 10 + One UI 2.0 Battery capacity: 4,000 mAh with fast charge up to 15 W; Dimensions: 73.6 x 158.5 x 7.9 mm Weight: 172 grams. Samsung Galaxy A71 - overview, specifications and price. Externally, the smartphone is almost a copy of the Galaxy A51, only slightly larger due to the larger display. But the filling is different cardinally. There is a gaming processor Snapdragon 730 (there is also a model with a Snapdragon 765G and support for 5G networks, but it is much more expensive), and the camera at 64 MP, and the battery is larger with 25 watts of charging. That is, this device is at a different level, as evidenced by the increased price - it starts with a mark from YSD 380. The only thing that embarrasses a smartphone is its size, and the plastic case with this price does not fit. But if you need power, a chic screen with an opening for the front and really fast charging with excellent autonomy, the Galaxy A71 is your choice! Features of the Galaxy A71 Case: metal frame, plastic and glass Gorilla Glass 3, IP65 and IP68 protection; Screen: 6.7 inch, Super AMOLED matrix, 2400x1080 resolution, 19.5:9 format, HDR10 support; Processor: Eight-core Snapdragon 730 chipset, 2 Kryo 470 to 2.2 GHz cores + 6 Kryo 470 to 1.8 GHz cores, 8 nm process; Video accelerator: Mali-G52 MP2, 820 MHz; RAM: 6/8 GB, LPDDR4X, dual channel; User Memory: 128 GB + micro SD; Rear Camera: 64 MP Samsung GW1 (f/1.8, pixel 1.6 μm Quad Bayer), 12 MP Wide Angle (f/2.2, pixel 1.12 μm), 5 MP Depth Sensor with f/2.2, Super Phase Autofocus, Electronic Image Stabilization; Front camera: 32 MP with f/2.2, face recognition; SIM: 2 Nano-SIM with support for LTE Cat.12; Connections: Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac at 2.4 + 5 GHz, Bluetooth 5.0, Type-C, NFC, 3.5mm jacket; Fingerprint Scanner: Available, under the screen; OS: Android 10 + One UI 2.0 Battery capacity: 4,500 mAh with quick charge up to 25 W; Dimensions: 76 x 163.6 x 7.7 mm Weight: 179 grams.

Black Shark 3 and Black Shark 3 Pro - two incredible gaming smartphones from Xiaomi, gadget review and features

In the spring of 2020 Xiaomi has released two gaming flagship devices - Black Shark 3 and 3 Pro. In addition to the Top hardware, namely the Snapdragon 865 paired with 12 GB of RAM, the devices gave a futuristic look and large displays to play more enjoyable. Black Shark 3 and 3 Pro - a luminous body and an advanced screen. Black Shark 3 has a 6.67" screen with Full HD+ resolution, DCI-P3 color scheme covers all 100% of NTSC space and brightness does not exceed 500 nit. Black Shark 3 Pro looks even more interesting in terms of screen part - it is Quad HD+ resolution of 7.1 inches. Both use AMOLED sensor, 90 Hz image refresh rate and 270 Hz touch layer refresh rate. Both screens also support MEMS and HDR+ technologies. As for the housing - the back of the devices has a symmetrical design with two large triangles, one with cameras and the other with magnetic contacts for charging. In the center there is a logo in the form of the letter S, which has an LED that sparkles with all the colors of the rainbow. In total, the devices have four different colours: light black, dark grey, silver and bright pink. Black Shark 3 and 3 Pro - Gaming Device Performance The devices work thanks to the top chip Snapdragon 865. The same processor allows smartphones to work in 5G networks. As for the previous gaming gadgets Black Shark 2019, the novelties are about 25% more powerful. In addition, it is worth adding a new AI-engine of the 5th generation, so that Black Shark 3 and 3 Pro better than its predecessors cope with tasks aimed at artificial intelligence. To prevent smartphones from overheating when actively used, Xiaomi has increased the area of cooling elements and applied liquid cooling. The Antutu, Black Shark 3 and 3 Pro synthetic testers score between 580,000 and almost 600,000 points, which is a lot - both of them top the list. The devices have from 8 to 12 GB of RAM of the new fast LPDDR5 standard with frequency up to 2750 MHz. This allows smartphones to work with memory faster by 50%, while reducing power consumption by 20%. Black Shark 3 also features a 128/256GB UFS 3.0 drive, while the 3 Pro model features a 256/512GB drive. Don't forget the various memory acceleration technologies (TurboWrite and HPB 2.0) and Performance Engine + Tencent Game SolarCore. Also, the JoyUI operating system itself is optimized to run games, although it is based on MIUI 11. Black Shark 3 and 3 Pro - Networking and Sound Options Both devices work perfectly in 5th generation SA and NSA networks, support high-speed Wi-Fi 6 Internet. With sound reproduction, too, everything is great for wireless audio transmission Bluetooth 5.0 with support for high definition sound codecs: aptX, aptX HD, aptX Adaptive and LDAC. In addition, Hi-RES Audio is certified. Black Shark 3 and 3 Pro - camera capabilities Although smartphones are gaming gadgets with an emphasis on performance, the users' cameras were also pleased. There are three photomodules, and they are placed on a separate triangle area on the back panel. The main camera module on 64 MP with an aperture of f/1.8 has 6 lenses and pixel size 0.8 µm. Supports Quad Bayer technology with 4 pixels in 1 for difficult shooting conditions. An additional 13 MP camera with an aperture of f/2.25 is required for wide-angle photos with a viewing angle of 120 degrees. A third 5 MP camera module with f/2.2 is used as a depth sensor for bokeh effect photos. Video devices are recorded in 4K at 60/30 fps. There is a slow motion - 480 fps in HD and 240 fps, but in FullHD. The front camera in Black Shark 3 and 3 Pro offers a 20 MP sensor with f/2.2 aperture. All necessary modes, including portrait, are included. In low light, the sensor combines 4 pixels into 1 to achieve better photo quality, but the resolution is reduced to 5 MP. Black Shark 3 and 3 Pro – battery life In this respect, Black Shark 3 and Black Shark 3 Pro are different from each other. The Black Shark 3 is equipped with a 4720 mAh battery (consists of 2 batteries of 2360 mAh each). The advantage of this solution is an increase in battery life. The device is also 2 times faster to charge and heats up less. With a native 65 W battery charger from 1% to 50%, the device can be recharged in 13 minutes. It takes 12 minutes to charge between 50% and 85%. It takes 38 minutes to fully fill the battery. Black Shark 3 Pro is equipped with two 2500 mAh battery packs - only 5000 mAh. Everything else is the same as a regular version of the smartphone without the set-top box Pro, but the charging time has barely increased. Black Shark 3 and 3 Pro - where to buy?

Sony Xperia 1 II - review of the flagship

Overview - Photo and video shooting, the main features of the device and the current costUnlike its competitors, Sony very often renames the line of flagship smartphones and to be honest its getting even more confusing. Just last year the company released Xperia 1, then a budget Xperia 10, and at the end of 2019 Xperia 5. Now the brand has presented the Sony Xperia 1 II - by analogy with digital devices Sony Mark II, only without the prefix Mark. In such a simple way, the brand focuses on the fact that the smartphone was created with a focus on photo and video capabilities. The company also pointed out that Xperia 1 II is a direct descendant of last year's flagship Xperia 1. So, let's move on to the gadget review.Sony Xperia 1 II - design and appearanceLike its predecessor, the new model retains the angularity of its heavily elongated body, while retaining the frame at the bottom and top of the screen. At the same time, the dimensions remained virtually unchanged and were 166x72x7.9 mm. The smartphone is made of tempered glass Gorilla Glass 6 with an aluminum side frame. The body itself is protected from dust and moisture according to IP68 standard. There are only four colors: white, black, gray and purple.Sony Xperia 1 II - Display characteristicsAlready classic for the company's devices screen aspect ratio - 21:9. Again, the emphasis on fans of watching video on your smartphone, and in the vertical position fits more content. However, not all applications are adapted to this ratio, so that the black stripes at the top and bottom (on the sides in a horizontal position) are provided. Display: AMOLED-matrix, 6.5 inches diagonal, resolution 3840 x 1644 pixels, density up to 645 ppi. But despite this, in most cases the content will be displayed in a finer resolution, with less CPU and battery load. There's nothing wrong with that, especially as over 500 ppi the human eye can't distinguish. The screen supports HDR10+ technology, refresh rate up to 60 Hz (+ tricky system emulating 90 Hz), color space BT.2020 and DCI-P3, equal to 100%.  Sony Xperia 1 II - camerasThe camera is one of the key features of the new flagship. Located in the upper left corner in a vertical position, it includes 3 photomodules:- Basic: 12 MP Sony IMX555, sensor size 1/1.7″, 24 mm lens with an aperture of f/1.7, Dual Pixel phase auto focus, optical stabilization;- Telephoto : 12 MP, 1/3.4″ sensor size, 70 mm f/2.4 aperture lens, phase auto focus, 3x optical zoom, optical stabilization;- Ultra wide-angle module: 12 megapixel, 1/2.55″ sensor size, 16 mm lens with an aperture of f/2.2, Dual Pixel phase auto focus;- ToF Sensor: Designed for faster and more accurate focusing in low light and for depth of scene (for portrait photos). The main sensor uses up to 70% pixels for fast Dual Pixel phase autofocus. The smartphone can autofocus and calculate exposure up to 60 times per second. This is especially useful for shooting sports events, animals and fast-moving objects. It also has a focus on the eyes of people and animals, followed by tracking them.In the dark, laser autofocus (ToF-sensor) is additionally used, and as the camera optics the device uses glass from ZEISS. It is possible to shoot in RAW, video in 4K with a frequency of up to 60 k / sec, but the video in 8K smartphone does not write. The device can also be used as a viewfinder in conjunction with Sony Alpha cameras. The camera offers 3x optical zoom, optical stabilization and conventional autofocus. Wide angle photomodule captures everything in sight up to 120 degrees and has Dual Pixel autofocus.Sony Xperia 1 II – battery life, processor and memoryThe device is based on a top processor from Qualcomm Snapdragon 865. The amount of RAM is 8 GB, built-in - 256 GB, plus support for memory cards up to 1 TB. However, the memory standard is confusing. While competitors switched to UFS 3.0 in 2020, Sony Xperia 1 II uses the already obsolete and less advanced UFS 2.1, which is noticeably inferior in read/write speed.Autonomy also raises questions. For many years Sony smartphones can not get rid of the "disease" of small batteries. This time the company increased the battery capacity from 3330 mAh (Sony Xperia 1) to 4000 mAh. This is an excellent indicator for the company itself, but not outstanding for the market as a whole, when competitors offer from 4500 to 5000 mAh. But there is wireless charging and fast charging (USB PD) over the wire.Sony Xperia 1 II - additional featuresThe main surprise of the device can be considered a 3.5 mm jacket. There is also support for DSEE and Hi-Res audio paired with stereo speakers mounted in the case. Bluetooth 5.1 with AAC, SBC, aptX/aptX HD, LDAC support is available for wireless sound. Also do not forget about the device support for 5th generation networks.Sony Xperia 1 II - how much does it cost?The basic version of Sony Xperia 1 II on our website cost $1121 (8/256 GB).

Redmi 9, Redmi 9A and 9C - how Xiaomi sees budget smartphones in 2020, gadget review and their characteristics

In 2020 Xiaomi decided to expand its line of low-cost Redmi Note devices to 5 devices. Some smartphones turned out to be very good, but some of the devices in the line cause questions and disputes. However, it wasn't enough for the manufacturer, as this year we are not waiting for the standard set from Redmi 9 and its simplified version Redmi 9A, but for the extended set with additional Redmi 9C middleware. Smartphones with index "C" have been frequently met at Xiaomi before, so no innovation is worth waiting for. We have already learned the partial characteristics of all three smartphones, so let's talk about them in more detail. Redmi 9A is an entry-level smartphone on the new Mediatek chip. The sad fact of 2020 is that none of the forthcoming budget makers in the Redmi 9 line will have a Snapdragon processor. Whether it is a single case or the beginning of everyday practice, only time will show, but now we have what we have. Redmi 9A is the most entry-level smartphone with the simplest technical equipment. Externally, the device also does not stand out - it is a standard frameless device with a drop-shaped neckline and plastic housing. However, unlike the models of previous years, the novelty should finally be equipped with a fingerprint scanner on the back panel and a USB Type-C port. Will the Micro USB disappear from the cheapest devices forever? Most likely, yes. About iron - the new Mediatek Helio G25 with Mali-G31 video accelerator and 3/32 GB of memory will work inside the smartphone. The first thing I liked was the absence of the 2/16 GB version, as this amount of memory is objectively not enough anymore. As for the Mediatek Helio G25 processor itself, there's no information about its specifications on the Internet. Nevertheless, we managed to find out that in Antutu it produces about 100,000 points, which is comparable to the power of the eight-core Snapdragon 632. That is, Redmi 9A is not bad for games, not to mention the fast Android system (probably, version 10). Also the smartphone will offer a single main camera for 13 MP and 5 MP frontal. Screen of the device will get a diagonal of 6.53 inches with a resolution of IPS-matrix 1600 x 720 points. Battery capacity will be 5000 mAh, mentioned support for memory cards up to 512 GB and infrared sensor to control household appliances. NFC module smartphone will not get! Redmi 9C is an excellent medium for your money. As it should have been expected, Redmi 9C will really be an intermediate variant between Redmi 9A and Redmi 9. However, in terms of power and overall positioning, it will be located closer to Redmi 9A. The smartphone will receive a display similar in characteristics to the camera (only the main 13 MP will be added 5 MP macro camera and 2 MP depth sensor), the same battery for 5000 mAh, Type-C, and fingerprint scanner. The device will be differed by the processor - it has a more powerful Mediatek Helio G35, but the video-core will remain the same - Mali-G31. That is, in games, the smartphone will not be able to prove itself better. The memory capacity of the smartphone will be 3/64 GB with support for memory cards up to 512 GB. There is no NFC. - There is also information that a separate version of Redmi 9C with NFC module will be released, but instead, the device will lose 5 MP of macro camera. Redmi 9 is an entry-level gaming smartphone. The older model in Redmi 9 lineup will get not only powerful iron, but also advanced cameras, more interesting display. With the same diagonal of 6.53 inches IPS-matrix resolution will be already Full HD+ (2400 x 1080), and for the work of the gadget will be responsible productive Mediatek Helio G70. To make it clearer, this chipset in terms of power can be compared to the famous Snapdragon 665. This is already a gaming solution, which will be enough for all modern Android projects. In addition, the minimum amount of memory in the smartphone will be 4/64 GB. The main camera device will offer a bunch of 13 MP + 8 MP (width) + 5 MP macro camera and 2 MP depth sensor. The front module will be without changes - 5 MP. Redmi 9 will also boast similarly large 5000 mAh battery (possibly with support for fast charging), fingerprint scanner, USB Type-C, NFC module and support for memory cards up to 512 GB. Redmi 9A, Redmi 9C and Redmi 9 are already available at our store.Please Subscribe to our newsletter,  follow us on FB or IG and get notified of our promotions and new launches!

Two new Honor smartphones: Play 4 with a 5G modem and Play 4 Pro with powerful hardware and temperature sensor

On June 3rd, the sub-brand of Huawei, a division of Honor, has scheduled a large presentation, which included two new smartphones. They all belong to the same lineup - Honor Play. The company showed Honor Play 4 with 5G and Pro version of the device. The novelties received advanced basic cameras, productive hardware, as well as one feature - a high-precision temperature sensor. The latest innovation is especially relevant in a pandemic, when for greater safety it is desirable to change the body temperature from time to time. In this case, the sensor can accurately determine the temperature of other things, so that in the home it will be a lot of good. Honor Play 4 (5G) - Overview and features The first thing to say is that Honor Play 4 5G has no function of measuring body temperature. Although earlier rumours had it that all models would receive a similar sensor, in fact it turned out to be a Pro version of Play 4. The smartphone looks little different from the more advanced version offers a stylish 6.81-inch frameless screen with Full HD+ resolution. Type of sensor IPS, and the front camera is located in the cutout in the upper left corner. The display refresh rate is 60 Hz, but the touch panel response rate has been increased to 120 Hz. The fingerprint scanner is placed on the side edge so as not to spoil the view of the back cover. The gadget has chipset Mediatek Dimensity 800, similar in performance Huawei Kirin 810. Its linked the fact that U.S. has increased sanctions against Huawei and it will no longer be able to produce branded chips at TSMC facilities. Therefore, in order not to have problems with Kirin 810 shortage in the future it was decided to use Dimensity 800. However, this is not a disadvantage, as the brainchild of Mediatek is not only powerful, but also energy efficient. The processor includes Cortex-A77 and Cortex-A55 cores with maximum clock frequency up to 2.6 GHz, as well as high-performance Mali-G77 MP9 graphics that pull all modern games on high graphics settings. That is, with this "iron" smartphone definitely corresponds to the range of Play. Honor 4 Play, thanks to its chipset, also received a 5G modem, the device has 6 GB to 8 GB of RAM and up to 128 GB on the internal drive. It has a battery capacity of 4,300 mAh and is claimed to support fast wired charging up to 22.5 watts. Finally, the smartphone camera configuration offers the following sensors: 64 MP with f/1.89, 8 MP wide angle sensor with f/2.2, 2 MP macro camera with f/2.4 and 2 MP depth of field sensor with f/2.4. Honor Play 4 Pro - Flagship overview and characteristics As for this model, it is already a flagship, and all because of the use of top chipset Huawei Kirin 990. Although externally there are practically no differences from the younger model, some details in the smartphone give it a premium. First of all, it's dimensions. The novelty is less assembled because of the reduced to 6.57 inches screen, and also offers a double front camera, similar to the one located in the neckline in the upper left corner. Although the display is smaller, its resolution was decided not to change, leaving the previous 2400 x 1080 dots. The same was done with the refresh rate, leaving the usual 60 Hz. The Kirin 990 processor is the most advanced solution from Huawei, with power close to the Snapdragon 865. The Baron 500 modem is in charge of 5th generation networks. At the same time, the gadget is equipped with 8/128 GB of memory (UFS 3.1 + LPDDR4X), as well as NFC module, which is not in the younger model. Fingerprint scanner in the novelty is placed on the side edge, and an infrared sensor for measuring the temperature on the rear panel next to the main cameras. Honor Play 4 Pro will be sold with or without a temperature sensor. Measurement accuracy is 0.1 degrees Celsius and operating temperatures from -20 to +100 degrees. A 4200 mAh battery paired with a 40 Watt fast charge has also been announced. The last one is the cameras. Unlike the younger model, here the main unit of the photomodule consists of two sensors for 40 MP (Sony IMX600 RYYB-sensor) and 8 MP telephoto lens (3x optical zoom m 30x digital). Honor Play 4 (5G) and Play 4 Pro - release date and price So, not two, but three smartphones will come on sale: Honor 4 Play with a 5G modem, Honor Play 4 Pro with an IR temperature sensor, and Play 4 Pro without temperature measurement technology. When the novelties will appear on sale in Russia, they are not yet publicized, and in China they can be ordered from June 12. The cost of smartphones in China also became known: - Honor Play 4 5G (6/128 GB) - from $ 253; - Honor Play 4 5G (8/128 GB) - from 281 dollars; - Honor Play 4 Pro without IR sensor - from $408; - Honor Play 4 Pro with infrared sensor for 422 dollars and more.Please Subscribe to our newsletter,  follow us on FB or IG and get notified of our promotions and new launches!

Redmi 10X - first look at the smartphone, detailed characteristics of Medaitek Dimensity 820 and comparison with Snapdragon 765G.

Few days ago was an announcement, during which two companies Xiaomi and Mediatek shared some interesting news. The first news is the introduction of the Mediatek Dimensity 820, a sub-family flagship processor. The second - based on this chip first smartphone Redmi 10X will be released, which will open a new line of gadgets subbrand Redmi. In today's article we want to introduce you not only the upcoming smartphone, which will be officially introduced in a week, but also to tell you more about the latest chip from Mediatek, which is 300% smarter than Snapdragon 765G. Redmi 10X - preliminary review The new smartphone from Redmi is not just another novelty, but a device that opens a new line of gadgets. What is the reason for the index "X" in the name so far nobody knows, there is no information on this subject, but there is a suggestion that now this index will mean the presence of processors from Mediatek in smartphones. That is, we will also see the familiar Redmi 10 and Redmi Note 10 in 2020, only they will be based on Snapdragon chips. Redmi 10X will be released very soon and it will be the first device with the latest Mediatek Dimensity 820 on board. The processor is very powerful and despite the fact that it should compete with the Snapdragon 765G, but practically the chip from Mediatek is more productive than the American opponent, and significantly. It's also known that Redmi 10X will get a large 6.57-inch OLED screen with Full HD+ resolution, a 48 MP main camera (and three more sensors), a 4420 mAh battery and memory from 6/64 GB to 8/256 GB. On sale the smartphone should appear in four interesting colors: lilac, gold, silver and sea wave colors. According to the design it should be said that there are no special differences from Redmi Note 9 Pro. Redmi 10X similarly has an ATV camera enclosed in a rectangular platform in the center of the rear panel, an opening in the display for the front camera, and the body is similarly made of glass and metal. In both smartphones, the back cover has the same rounded edges on the sides.   Redmi 10X - details on Mediatek Dimensity 820 processor The Dimensity 820 is not a top-of-the-line chipset from Mediatek and is on par with the Snapdragon 765G, or even an updated version of the Snapdragon 768G. However, the Taiwan processor is much more productive than the U.S. competitor, as evidenced not only by Mediatek's own graphics, but also by Antutu benchmark data. Thus, if Snapdragon 765G scores up to 310,000 points, and 768G is 20% more powerful (in theory, up to 380,000 points), Dimensity 820 easily achieves 415,000 points. When comparing the Dimensity 820 with the Snapdragon 765G in the GeekBench 4.2 benchmark, the results are astounding. In single-core mode, "Taiwanese" is 7% more powerful, while in multi-core mode it exceeds "American" by 37%. That's not all - if you take applications sharpened for artificial intelligence, the gap here is 300%, and in favor of Dimensity 820! As for the processor itself: it is based on a 7-nm processor and includes four powerful Cortex-A76 cores in the upper block and the same number of energy efficient Cortex-A55 cores in the lower block. The maximum clock frequency is 2.6 GHz, and the Mali-G57 MC5 video core is responsible for graphics acceleration. Also, a feature of the chipset is not just support for 5G networks, and work in 5-th generation networks with two SIM cards at once. We add a variety of technologies such as HyperEngine 2.0 (network optimization during gamaming), support for displays with an update rate of up to 120 Hz, low power consumption and get the ideal inexpensive chip for budget smartphones.   Redmi 10X - when the smartphone and its price will be released The official presentation of the gadget is due on May 26. On it Redmi will tell about all chips of the new smartphone, as well as demonstrate the work of Dimensity in real conditions. The cost of the device is not disclosed yet, but since we are dealing with the processor from Mediatek, the cost of Redmi 10X will obviously be lower than the cost of any device running on Snapdragon 765G. It means that we will get a cheaper analogue of Redmi Note 9 Pro, at the same time winning in performance. This is great news, because at lower cost users will get more advanced technology, higher power, and the Snapdragon monopoly in the mobile chipset industry will be destroyed.Please Subscribe to our newsletter,  follow us on FB or IG and get notified of our promotions and new launches!

Meizu 17 and 17 Pro - a detailed overview of the two flagships that sell as hot cakes

The other day something happened that many people were waiting for - two flagship companies from Meizu were presented. The novelties called Meizu 17 and 17 Pro were very similar to each other with little, but still a difference. The devices really much-anticipated and the fact that the first batch of flagships were bought in just a minute, only confirms the interest of users. The Meizu 17 and 17 Pro turned out to be interesting, somewhat innovative - at least with the design they are excellent and have their own zest. So let's take a closer look at the gadgets that came out. Meizu 17 and 17 Pro - Flagship design. Now that some brands are still riveting old-fashioned smartphones with a vertical camera unit, and 98% of the others mimic Apple in one way or another, Meizu is going its own way. Many people, looking at the devices, can say that the company borrowed last year's design from Samsung and will be right, but only partly. Yes, yes, the Meizu 17 and 17 Pro have found a unit with the main cameras, located horizontally, and this is all that unites the released smartphones with Samsung devices of the past years. Now Samsung also imitates Apple, but Meizu has nothing in common with merchants. The area with the cameras looks great in the novelties, unique and does not copy anything, so that no other mobile devices Meizu 17-series will not be confused exactly. That's definitely a plus. Nothing new in the front - a frameless display and a camera for selfies, located in the hole in the upper right corner of the screen - its diameter is only 3 mm. However, it is nothing new for others, and for fans of Meizu a fresh sip as earlier the module of the selfi-camera the company had in the top tiny frame. To sum up: it was great then, and now. As for the cabinet materials, there's really nothing new here: the glass in the front and back and the aluminium frame in the middle. The only thing worth noting is that the back of the Meizu 17 Pro is made of ceramic. There are four colours: green, white, black and grey. The Meizu 17 and 17 Pro are smartphone features. If you take two devices and look at them, it is unlikely that anyone will notice the difference in appearance. The essence of the Pro-version is that it was equipped with a little more memory, a little different set of cameras and everything like that. That's why we decided to dwell on the characteristics of the Pro-version in more detail, and then to clarify the difference between the usual Meizu 17 modification and it. Meizu 17 Pro - specifications - Screen: AMOLED Matrix, 6.6 inches, Full HD+ resolution (2340x1080), brightness 700 nits and peak up to 1100 nits, contrast 2000000:1, 100% DCI-P3 display format 20:9, support for Always-On Display and HDR10+, update rate 90 Hz and touch layer sampling rate up to 180 Hz, useful area 92%; - Chipset: 8-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 with up to 2.84 GHz, Kryo 585 cores, 7 nm process, 64 bits, mEngine 3.0 coprocessor; - Video accelerator: Adreno 650 with up to 587 MHz; - Operation: 8 GB LPDDR4X or 12 GB LPDDR5, with frequencies up to 2133 and 2750 MHz respectively; - Drive: 128/256GB UFS 3.1; - Memory Cards: None; - 5G NSA and SA networking and 4G LTE Cat.20 support - loads over 2 Gbps; - SIM: nano-SIM + nano-SIM (hybrid slot), Dual SIM Dual Standby (DSDS); - Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, USB Type-C; - Navigation: GPS, GLONASS, Galileo, BeiDou; - Main camera: four sensors, 64 megapixels (Sony IMX686 1/1.7", 1.6 μm (4-in-1), OIS, f/1.8) + 8 megapixels (telephoto, f/2.4) with 3x optical and 8x hybrid zoom + 32 megapixels (width, f/2.2, 0.8 μm, viewing angle 129 degrees) + 3D ToF sensor, 6 LED backlight; - Self-camera: 20 MP with f/2.2; - Sensors: approximation, illumination, accelerometer, optical fingerprint scanner under the screen, vibromotor with 4D haptic response; - Sound: stereo speakers; - Battery: 4500 mAh, Li-Ion, non-replaceable, fast 36W, wireless 27W, reversible 10W BZ; - OS: Android 10 + FlyMe 9 shell; - Dimensions: 160 x 77.2 x 8.5 mm; - Weight: 219 grams. And now let's clarify the difference between the Meizu 17: - The smartphone has no more than 8 GB RAM standard LPDDR4X; - Instead of the TV camera the device was equipped with a 12 MP portrait camera with f/1.9, the resolution of the wide-angle module was reduced to 8 MP with a viewing angle of 118 degrees, and instead of a depth sensor 5 MP macro camera is used; - No wireless charging in the smartphone, and wired power is reduced to 30 W; - Weight of the smartphone is 199 grams. Of all the above, the Meizu 17 Pro is the most interesting camera at the moment. I wonder how well the 3x optical zoom works and is the 8x hybrid zoom ready to compete with the 10x hybrid zoom of its competitors? Meizu 17 and 17 Pro - comparison with Meizu 16s Pro Let's briefly compare how much progress the company has made regarding the last flagship Meizu 16s Pro. The first thing that catches your eye is the disappearing top frame above the display. If the 16th series of devices looked symmetrical, now in gadgets Meizu there was only a tiny bottom "chin". Behind changes concern only the location of the main camera, it was vertical, and also the size of the block itself with photo modules. There are much more differences in the characteristics. The Meizu 16s Pro has a powerful, but still losing its relevance Snapdragon 855 Plus, no support for 5G networks, a smaller display of 6.22 inches, which, in addition, is also weaker in terms of characteristics. It has less coverage of the color space DCI-P3 (96%) and, accordingly, worse color rendering, 2 times lower contrast and almost the same amount of brightness of the matrix. In Meizu 16s Pro uses an outdated photo matrix IMX586 for 48 MP, there are 20 MP camera with only 2x zoom and 16 MP width, but the depth sensor is not available and to make a high-quality photo with the side of the smartphone without approaching it is simply impossible. Finally, last year's flagship has a battery capacity of only 3600 mAh, and fast charging reaches a power of 24 W. That's without considering the fact that wireless charging is out of the question at all. Meizu 17 and 17 Pro - release date and price In China, the devices went on sale on May 11. Their cost is as follows: - Meizu 17 by 8/128 GB - from 523 dollars; - Meizu 17 by 8/256GB - from 565 dollars; - The Meizu 17 on 8/128GB for $607; - Meizu 17 by 12/256 GB - from 664 dollars.Please Subscribe to our newsletter,  follow us on FB or IG and get notified of our promotions and new launches!

Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite Zoom - is an inexpensive smartphone with powerful hardware and a 50x zoom camera

On April 27, Xiaomi introduced a new middle-class smartphone with flagship ambitions. Xiaomi Mi 10 Youth Edition is positioned by the brand as a youthful and inexpensive device with advanced features. However, it should be understood that under this name the device will be sold in China, and it will enter the international market under a different name. According to the latest information, the global version of the device will be called Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite Zoom. Why zoom? The answer lies with the advanced gadget camera. Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite Zoom - overview and features First, it's worth taking a look at the appearance of the machine. There are no frills in it and it differs a little from its competitors. But if you take into account the materials in the case, it's clear that Xiaomi doesn't save on them like others do. The classic combination of metal and glass allows the smartphone to still belong to the top league. Xiaomi offers Mi 10 Lite Zoom in five colors: white, peach, black, greenish and turquoise blue. The display of the device is a chic AMOLED matrix with Full HD+ resolution, 6.57 inches diagonal and 20:9 aspect ratio. The incredible 4,300,000:1 contrast at peak and a very high maximum brightness of up to 800 nit should be distinguished from the screen features. At the same time, the display supports HDR10+, DC Dimming technology and has almost perfect color accuracy with a parameter JNCD, equal to the value of <0.7. Naturally, the screen with such characteristics, not inferior to the matrixes in the flagships, you need to reliably protect, which will perfectly cope with the glass Gorilla Glass 5. With the performance of Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite Zoom also everything is at its best. For the work of the gadget is responsible for the best processor subflagship level - Snapdragon 765G with a 5G modem. This is a gaming solution with pumped-up cores and graphics, but so much so that it is called a simplified version of the top chip Snapdragon 865. The 7-nanometer process, high energy efficiency and low heat are complemented by a solid amount of memory. Thus, Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite Zoom will be sold in several variations with RAM from 6 to 8 GB, and the drive will offer 64/128 or even 256 GB. Alas, no memory card support is expected.
