iPhone 12 leak points to souped up 4K shooting

Published

on

With September quickly approaching, there’s been no lack of rumors centered on Apple’s new iPhone lineup. We’ve heard about everything from how many phones will be in the lineup to specs and pricing, but today, we’re learning some new stuff about the cameras on these phones. Specifically, we’re learning what these iPhone 12 cameras may be capable of, particularly in higher-end models.

Today’s information comes from the YouTube channel EverythingApplePro, which has published a new video that serves as a round up of recent leaks. In that video, EverythingApplePro cites Max Weinbach, who’s known for leaking information about upcoming phones on Twitter and for XDA Developers. Weinbach, along with one of his sources, dug into the camera app in iOS 14 to discover references to new shooting modes that will reportedly be present in the iPhone 12 Pro and 12 Pro Max.

Weinbach’s teardown revealed 4K video shooting modes at 120 frames per second and 240 frames per second. That’s a big discovery, because thus far, iPhones have been limited to shooting 4K at 60 fps – only the 1080p shooting mode has been able to reach 240 fps.

As EverythingApplePro notes in his video, souped up 4K shooting modes definitely aren’t out of the question for Apple’s higher-end iPhones because leaks have pointed to big camera upgrades and the new A14 Bionic CPU is expected to be capable of some heavy lifting when it comes to 4K video processing.

EverythingApplePro’s video covers more than just the cameras (for instance, he thinks that new iPhones will indeed ship with a charger in the box, breaking with a recent prediction from Apple analyst Ming-Chi Kuo), but those camera leaks are definitely among the biggest covered in the video. We’ve still got a couple of months until Apple’s iPhone 12 reveal, so we’ll see if any future leaks corroborate this one. Stay tuned.

Motorola Moto X30 Pro Will Have An Unusual Camera System

Published

on

This is just the tip of the iceberg for the Moto X30 Pro. The strangest thing about the model won’t be its unusually large camera sensor, especially since Xiaomi already claimed that crown. Instead, it will be the use of three focal lengths in the camera system that could mean the removal of one traditional part of that group.

Motorola’s Weibo account revealed that the Moto X30 Pro will have a 35mm focal point at its widest. This will be joined by a 50mm telephoto that could have a 2x magnification, as well as an 80mm longer telephoto option. If this is an accurate description, it would suggest that the phone will ditch the ultra-wide shooter in favor of two telephoto cameras when some of its peers opt to eschew telephoto cameras to make way for a macro alternative.

Whether this will give the Moto X30 Pro an actual advantage over other high-end phones this year remains to be seen, literally. It sounds almost like a mixed bag, at least in the camera department, though the rest of the rumored specs are on par for a 2022 flagship. The Moto X30 Pro, which could go by the name Motorola Frontier in global markets, is expected to run on a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, bear a 6.67-inch 144Hz OLED screen, and boast 125W super-fast charging for its modest 4,500mAh battery.

How To Fix Amazon Prime Video Not Streaming In 4K

Published

on

Not all Amazon Prime Video titles are available in 4K quality. Older movies and shows often do not support that format, and even some newer flicks will still be unavailable for a variety of reasons ranging from licensing to technical difficulties. As a result, your title of choice might look less-than-perfect, not due to a fault on Amazon’s end, but simply because that title may not support 4K in the first place. 

Amazon has a list of titles available in 4K, so checking whether the one you’re trying to watch is, is fairly easy. You can see all the 4K offerings by heading over to the official Amazon website. The list is not very intuitive in the sense that you can’t check for specifics within the results as this is already a narrowed-down list. However, you can also simply type in the title of your movie or show into the search bar above to check whether it’s available on Prime Video and in 4K.

You can also search directly on Amazon Prime Video. Any variation of “4K,” “4K movies ultra HD,” “4K film,” or even something more specific like “4K romantic comedies” should produce a list of titles that you can watch right now. If you managed to locate your title on one of these lists and yet it still looks underwhelming, there may be other issues at hand.
