1. 100W fast-charging
Top 5 smartphones technologies.Redmi General Manager Lu Weibing has now revealed more details about its 100W fast charging technology. Xiaomi had unveiled this technology last year, and it claims to fully charge a 4,000mAh battery in 17 minutes. At that time, the company had said that a Redmi phone would first integrate this technology. Apart from this, little else was known back then, but fresh details have been shared by Weibing. He also states that the 100W Super Charge technology has reached the early stages of production.
2. 108MP camera sensor
This is Samsung’s first sensor to feature dual Native ISO, a feature the company calls Smart-ISO. Every sensor performs some level of analog amplification before turning the brightness reading from pixels into digital data. This is the native ISO. Having two native ISO levels allows the sensor to better tune its light sensitivity for challenging light conditions. Essentially, the sensor can pick one amplification level for the highlights and one for the shadows.
This is a Quad Bayer sensor (Samsung calls it “Tetra Cell”), meaning a group of four pixels shares one color filter. This allows the image processing algorithms to merge four 0.8µm pixels into one 1.6µm pixel with superior light gathering ability. Even after the 4:1 conversion, the resulting image has a pretty high resolution of 27MP.
In the daytime, the algorithms go the other way and rearrange the pixel data so that it results in a 108MP shot – this is the first mobile sensor to go north of 100MP. At 1/1.33”, this is also one of the largest mobile sensors ever.
A different challenge is an autofocus. Samsung’s Super-PD feature promises a fast and accurate focus lock, even in the dark (PD stands for “phase detection”).
3. Penta-camera setup
Top 5 smartphones technologies, Since the Mi Note 10 is the global version of the Mi CC9 Pro arriving on November 5 in China, we know that it will come with a 32MP selfie camera, OIS on two cameras and a 5,260 mAh battery with 30W fast charge support.
The CC9 Pro was recently spotted on TENAA with a 6.47″ FHD+ OLED display, UD fingerprint reader, and also a 2.2GHz octa-core processor which is likely part of the Snapdragon 730G chipset. We will know more about its specs, pricing, and availability on next Tuesday.
4. OPPO’s foldable phones
Top 5 smartphones technologies, In telecommunications, 5G is the fifth generation technology standard for cellular networks, which cellular phone companies began deploying worldwide in 2019, the planned successor to the 4G networks which provide connectivity to most current cellphones. Like its predecessors, 5G networks are cellular networks, in which the service area is divided into small geographical areas called cells. All 5G wireless devices in a cell are connected to the Internet and also telephone network by radio waves through a local antenna in the cell. The main advantage of the new networks is that they will have greater bandwidth, giving higher download speeds, eventually up to 10 gigabits per second.
