At any point of the digital transition,…
Speaking of smartphones, the priority will be on 5G (the 5th generation mobile networking system) in 2020. Telecommunications firms have also started networks in Asia to follow the globe. The first year of 5G can also be numbered 2020.
In the other hand, 5G takes a while to build the system, and essentially 5G would be accepted for all smartphones, so producers have to develop their own special features other than 5G support. This time, based on the disassembly observations, we will compare the world’s six flagship smartphone models launched in 2020.
There are three things to look out for. There are (1) cameras’ evolution, (2) higher resolution screens, (3) more memory, and quicker levels of operation. First, when looking at the functionality of each model, we will compare each object in order.
Cameras, screens and millimeter-wave support are differentiating factors.
The first iPhone series to support 5G is Apple’s “iPhone 12”. The monitor is organic EL (OLED), and cracks, wear, and drop resistance have been improved by introducing a new approach called “Ceramic Shield”. In addition to the improvement in the number of cameras to 3 eyes, the “iPhone 12 Pro” and “Pro Max” are fitted with a dToF (Time of Flight) sensor (LiDAR) capable of 3D detection. There are.
The only Japanese producer that supports the 5G millimeter-wave frequency band is Fujitsu’s ‘arrows 5G.’ Qualcomm’s “Snapdragon 865 5G Mobile platform” was adopted as the key component in addition to being fitted with a 6.7-inch OLED display. The main body’s thickness is around 7.7 mm, and is also the world’s thinnest.
The “AQUOS R5G” from Sharp is distinguished by a total of four cameras being fitted. It is a 2x optical zoom telephoto camera, a regular F-value 1.7 camera, and a ToF sensor capable of obtaining distance photography, including an ultra-wide-angle camera capable of filming 8K ultra-high-definition movies. Functional features, such as providing a function to follow the subject automatically and zoom and focus, have also been developed. The 6.5-inch Pro IGZO monitor is fitted with 1 billion color expressions and a high brightness of 1000 cd / m 2 .
The “Xperia 1 II” from Sony also features sophisticated camera functions. On a triple ZEISS Lens camera, a 3D iToF sensor is installed that captures different subjects by freely swapping the lens for each scene. For eg, with AF / AE tracking at up to 20 frames per second, high-speed continuous shooting is feasible, and a 1 / 1.7-inch large-format sensor that can catch more light allows high-sensitivity shooting in low-light shooting.
Furthermore, the OLED monitor that supports 4K HDR is also exclusive with an aspect ratio of 21: 9.
Samsung Electronics of Korea’s ‘Galaxy Note20 5G’ is fitted with a camera with a high 64 million pixel pixel count and a telephoto camera with a 3x optical zoom. It is said that a 33-megapixel frame from a video taken in 8K can be cropped out. The monitor is fitted with a 6.9-inch ‘Infinity-O Display’ AMOLED display with a variable refresh rate of 120Hz. The stylus pen and screen-integrated fingerprint reader that are included are also distinctive.
The “P40 Pro 5G” from Huawei, China, is the first device to use the characteristic “Quad-Curve Overflow Display.” cover glass. A curved cover glass protects the display in addition to the long side of the display. It is fitted with a 1 / 1.28-inch image sensor for camera functionality, which is identical to the sensor installed in high-end portable digital cameras.
