The race to see who launches the first camera phone under the screen is fierce after ZTE introduced the Axon 20 5G with the technology, but still with no sales forecast, Xiaomi announced that it has finished testing with the third generation of its solution and finally believes that it is at a satisfactory level for use in a commercial product.

The Chinese demonstrated a customized version of the Mi 10Ultra with camera under the screen and the results are really interesting, being practically impossible to understand where the camera is until you look very closely at the top left corner of the display. The selfies taken with the device are also good, showing a clear evolution since the brand’s first attempt, which reinforces that, most likely, we will have a Xiaomi model with a camera under the screen in stores in the first months of 2021. LG has always been a company dedicated to delivering exotic technologies to its devices. After the accessory module at the time of the G5 and the second G8X screen, the South Korean is ready to shake up the so stagnant smartphone market with Wing again, a cell phone with a rotating secondary screen.


 The device’s proposal is very different from other models we’ve seen so far being used a 6.8 “main screen with very few edges and a secondary screen of only 4” that appears behind it when rotated. The function can be used to type, to display extra content in games and applications, or even to turn the phone into a real multimedia center in the car, greatly increasing the level of multitasking allowed. Like the Velvet 5G, the Wing must bet on intermediate hardware to reduce its final price reaching the market with the Snapdragon 765G platform or even the unannounced 768G. Even so, due to the necessary curious technology, it should reach the North American market. for around R $ 1,000, and its official presentation is expected in the coming weeks. Elon Musk is one of the most exotic figures in the modern world, being responsible for companies like Tesla and SpaceX, which in a short time has made a real gale in the markets in that it operates. Another millionaire company is Neuralink, which as the name suggests, seeks to create a connection between neurons brain and electronic products. Last week the company held an event to show the progress in the area its objective is the creation of an easy-to-install brain chip that allows data exchange with the technological world. In a demonstration made using a pig, it was possible to get answers the area of ​​the brain responsible for the smell when presenting stimuli to the animal, which demonstrates the possibility of using the chip in other places to obtain different data. The device is inserted through an opening made at the top of the head getting fixed in a small hole in the skull – it is then connected to the outer surface of the brain for the collection of neuron synapses, sending the information via Bluetooth to the computer. In the final version, a more reliable radio technology should be used, such as 5G or Wi-Fi. The main objective of the study is to help people who have brain injuries and restrictions on motor activities. By the end of 2021, tests should also be carried out with quadriplegic people. 


The iPhone 12 line should be presented by Apple this September bringing four models for the first time in history at the same time. Apparently, this diversification will come at a price, as all models are expected with OLED screen and even processing set, varying only in other specifications like cameras and size or screen refresh rate. In the most recent leak, we have that prices should start from US$ 700 for the iPhone 12 and reach up to US$ 1,200 on the base version of the iPhone 12 Pro Max. The price of the cheapest model even coincides with what we saw on the iPhone 11, but the most complete version 2019 was launched starting at US$ 1,100, in addition to the models among them showing an increase of up to US$ 100. Anyway, it seems that even a little more expensive new iPhones should please consumers, at least according to market forecasts that bet that the OLED screen and the 5G will be able to make Apple sell almost 70 million units the line still in 2020 – will it hit that mark? The Galaxy Fold was presented by Samsung in early 2019 with an exotic look being the first foldable smartphone marketed on a global scale. Just over a year later, at the presentation event for the Galaxy Note 20 line, the company confirmed that the second generation of the foldable was lurking and the new Galaxy Z Fold 2 was finally announced on this first day of September. The name change served to unify the brand’s folding lines, now with the Z flip, Z Flip 5G, and Z Fold 2, but should be getting new models soon. Besides the name, some functions of the Flip model arrived for the big guy like Flex Mode, which allows you to use the device half open to have exclusive functions in some applications. 

Now, already looking like the final product, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 received important changes in the look including a much larger external screen and a notch hole in the internal screen instead of that huge cutout. The part of the cameras inherits the design seen in the Note 20 line, with a rectangular block in the same color of the rest of the body. In addition to the visual, the improvements in screen and sound are also notable for watching videos and playing games. The internal panel is a 7.7 “2x Dynamic AMOLED with 120 HZ refresh rate the external screen is a 6.2” Super AMOLED Full HD+. We also have stereo sound with outputs on the lower and upper sides. On the cameras are three 12 MP rear sensors, including the main camera, an ultra-wide and a telephoto lens – the two selfie cameras, both in the hole of the external and internal screens, have 10 MP. For those who are worried about the durability, Samsung claims that the changes made to the engine that joins the two parts of the Z Fold 2 help to ensure that it will last for a few good years without problems.


 The Engine was implemented with a magnetic system, which eliminates dust and other residues, this being one of the factors that delayed the launch of the first generation. Details on the price and availability of the Galaxy Z Flold 2 can be found in the full list in text, down below. The good news is that the global version has a Snapdragon 865 platform which should please those who do not have much confidence in Samsung’s own Exynos chips.
