Oppo Reno 6 (Pro) official: midrange smartphones for photographers
The Reno 6 and 6 Pro are the successors of the Reno 5 models, which were not released in the Netherlands. The new smartphones are mainly recommended by Oppo for their photo and video capabilities. For example, the devices can film with a depth of field effect, a feature that is mainly known from photos. Oppo also pays attention to an advanced stabilization mode to prevent video shake and an algorithm that should deliver better colors. An automatic night mode would improve photo and video quality in the dark. The Oppo Reno 6 has a 64 megapixel main camera, 8 megapixel wide-angle lens and 2 megapixel macro camera. Four cameras are placed on the Oppo Reno 6 Pro.

This is how Motorola really wants to charge your smartphone wirelessly
Motorola demonstrates in a video a method that can charge your smartphone really wirelessly. The charging technology was briefly shown in May, but appears to have improved and is now explained more clearly. Motorola speaks of Space Charging, an improved version of the GuRu technology. The video shows that the charging station can send enough energy through the air to charge four smartphones at the same time. The smartphone does need technical components to receive the energy and convert it into electricity. The charging station sends the energy through 1600 antennas at an angle of one hundred degrees, which is quite wide. According to Motorola, the smartphone must be within three meters of the charging station to charge wirelessly.

This is not surprising, because Samsung provides all its high-end smartphones with monthly security patches. The Galaxy A52s, which was recently released in the Netherlands, can also count on monthly security updates. At the beginning of this year, Samsung announced that it would support smartphones for longer. All Galaxy devices released in 2019 or later can count on four years of security updates.
