Samsung Galaxy Charging Adapter

Reuters report suggests that the European Commission will present a legislative proposal for a common charger for mobile phones, tablets and headphones. Person familiar with the matter said that a move could affect the US tech giant Apple more than its rivals such as Samsung.

According to the information, the European Union executive and EU lawmakers have been demanding a common charger code for over a decade as it would be better for the environment and more convenient for users.

Aside from this, the Commission wants manufacturers should not to ship a charger out of the box, while the port of handy electronics devices will be the same so that the consumers will be able to freely charge multiple devices even with a single charger.

Reuters reports that this move could have a bigger impact on Apple than its Android rivals. This has a lot to do with the company’s Lightning port used on iPhones and some iPads. Meanwhile, some iPad models and most Macs offer a USB-C port.

Going further, the report suggests that this move could make a bigger impact on Apple than its Android rivals as the former OEM uses its own developed Lightning port for charging iPhones and select iPads.

To be mentioned, half the chargers sold with mobile phones in 2018 had a USB micro-B connector, while 29% had a USB-C connector and 21% a Lightning connector, according to a 2019 Commission study.

Previously, Samsung confirmed the Galaxy F55 5G India launch for May 17 (today). While the official debut has now been delayed by 10 days, the company has listed the device with all the key specifications and features, while keeping the price unannounced.

Vivo X100 Ultra w/ 200MP Periscope beats Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra

Published

Vivo X100 Ultra

Vivo X100 Ultra is officially launched to challenge Samsung Galaxy S24 Ultra with a 200MP Periscope camera. Specs-wise, this smartphone outpaces Samsung’s latest Galaxy S24 Ultra in terms of imaging capabilities, thanks to the custom Periscope sensor.

The new Vivo X100 Ultra comes with a 1-inch Sony LYT-900 main camera, and a 200MP periscope camera leveraging the 1/1.4″ ISOCELL HP9 sensor co-developed with Samsung. It’s notably the largest telephoto sensor fitted on a phone to date.

The Periscope introduces f/2.67 aperture and an 85mm equivalent focal length. Following its collaboration, Vivo brought Zeiss T* coating and Zeiss APO certification to the X100 Ultra, as part of delivering improved clarity and less fringing at contrast edges.

This monstrous zoom camera brings up to 3.7x optical zoom and 20% improved light sensitivity. Its telephoto macro (a.k.a. telemacro) mode offers 20x magnification. The company also introduced its BlueImage algorithm which was in development for eight years.

Vivo X100 Ultra

X100 Ultra’s 50MP main camera uses a 1/0.98” LYT-900 sensor with f/1.75 aperture and 23mm focal length. It also supports up to 4K 120fps video recording and Dolby Vision support. Besides, the 3rd lens is a 14mm equivalent ultrawide with a 1/2″ 50MP LYT-600 sensor.

Galaxy S24 Ultra…

The Galaxy S24 Ultra comes with a quad rear camera setup. The module consists of an advanced 200MP primary sensor – ISOCELL HP2, an ultrawide camera, a 10MP Telephoto with 3x optical zoom, and a 50MP Periscope with 5x optical zoom.

As the periscope camera is co-developed by Samsung, quality shouldn’t be questioned. This year’s Samsung flagship is equipped with a new 50MP periscope camera with 5x optical zoom. However, the 200MP periscope sounds pretty capable and powerful over S24 Ultra’s.
