Last year was one of the most difficult for the mobile phone market . The pandemic, parts shortages, and other issues ravaged the market last year. However, mobile phone brands managed to release some interesting and novel technologies.
In this article, we are going to see some of the best technologies that the mobile phone market had in 2022 and that promise to be key in this 2023. Since many brands will take the opportunity to introduce them to their phones this year.
Huawei is probably the first Chinese brand to focus on custom chips. However, since Huawei’s ban, other Chinese brands have taken its place and made good progress on coprocessors represented by NPUs, ISPs, and self-developed charging chips.
In terms of image, OPPO has the Marisilicon X and Marisilicon Y , Xiaomi the Surge C1, and Vivo also has the latest V2 chip . All of these chips can be mass-produced for commercial purposes. Although not perceived by ordinary users, these chips have greatly improved the performance of mobile phones .
Satellite messaging is another feature coming to mobile phones in 2022 . Huawei and Apple already have new generation flagship mobile phones that support this feature.
This feature allows mobile phones to send messages via satellite when there is no WiFi and cellular network coverage. However, the Chinese version of the iPhone 14 series does not support this feature. If Chinese users want to use this feature, they will have to buy the Huawei Mate 50 series.
Huawei’s Mate 50 series supports the Beidou satellite messaging feature . The device can send text and location information to contacts and provide timely help in an emergency.
According to Apple’s official statement, the iPhone 14 series phones are embedded with multiple sensors that can detect a new dual-core accelerometer of up to 256 g-force and a high dynamic range gyroscope that can detect serious car collisions.
The function can also contact emergency services and give them the location of the victim.
When it comes to Ray Tracing , most PC gamers are familiar with it. Since the first game to support ray tracing, this technology has been in development for several years on PCs and consoles.
By comparison, ray tracing technology on mobile is very recent . Currently, the MediaTek Dimensity 9200 and Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 chips support ray tracing technology at the hardware level.
This technology greatly improves the image quality of mobile games and offers gamers a more immersive gaming experience. Of course, ray tracing technology is not only used in games, but also in other fields such as video, virtual reality, etc.
If you often use professional mode to take photos, you can adjust the depth of field and the degree of blur. In automatic mode, the mobile can freely choose based on environmental conditions to create a natural blur effect.
In 2022, mobile phone brands continued to develop fast charging. In the first half of the year, Realme GT Neo3 launched 150W fast wired charging . This was a new world record at the time, but it didn’t last long.
The iQOO 10 series was officially launched in July, and the Pro version debuted with 200W fast charging. This charging capability can fully charge a 4,700mAh battery in just 10 minutes.
The Redmi Note 12 Explorer Edition launched 210W fast charging for the first time in the industry. It is also the fastest charging speed that has been mass-produced in mobile phones so far. This 2023 plans to break this new record.
The casing would be 8% of the final price, while the memory would take 11% . Other components of the Galaxy S23 Ultra would make up the remaining 15%, and include things like PCBs, MLCC, waterproofing, vibration motor, and other features of the phone.
Of course, these data do not reflect the profit on the sale of the device , they only analyze the manufacturing cost of the main components of the phone. The total cost of the Galaxy S23 Ultra is certainly higher than 436 euros, which would mean that Samsung does not make a 221% profit on the sale of the device.
The largest percentage of production spending goes to Qualcomm
Although, the data does show a conclusion: Samsung allocates the highest percentage of the Galaxy S23 ultra to Qualcomm . Perhaps that is why a move to Exynos 2400 is rumored for the Galaxy S24 series. Although for the moment it has remained pure speculation, it would be a change in the market for Samsung .
