When talking about premium smartphones, the first model that comes to the minds of many users is the iPhone. It’s logical because the Apple iPhone almost represents a higher industrial design ability. However, the advantages of Apple mobile phones in industrial design capabilities will soon be replaced by another mobile phone, that is, the Tesla mobile phone. According to various leaks, Elon Musk is interested in making a Tesla smartphone. Once this is done, Apple will suffer the most. Anyway, before it’s confirmed or denied officially, we have found a set of renders of the Tesla phone. It is called the Tesla PI.
We can say that the appearance of the Tesla PI is unique. But it has some design elements that look familiar to us. For example, a concept phone that Xiaomi has released before also uses a surround screen.
However, making a surround screen smartphone is not easy. The screen extends from the front to the back of the fuselage. So it is impossible to place physical buttons on the left and right borders of the screen. For this, the manufacturers should replace the volume rockers and some controls with innovative technologies. The Tesla PI adopts a flexible screen design, of which the resolution is directly set at 2K, the refresh rate is as high as 200Hz, and it is an LTPO adaptive refresh rate.
On the back, where two edges of the screen get closer, there is a strip of 2 cm width. It is here, where the manufacturer can place the camera lenses. The Tesla PI might come with a Snapdragon 8 Gen1 processor and a battery capacity of 6500mAh. It uses a three-cell technology. The wired fast charge is 75W and the wireless fast charge is 55W.
As for the camera, there is a 100-megapixel triple-camera. The rest of the two lenses are a telephoto camera sensor and an ultra-wide-angle camera. Of course, Tesla PI did not cooperate with Zeiss or Leica and relied entirely on its own technical strength for research and development.
The news of Tesla PI has made many consumers very concerned, and they are looking forward to when it will be available. We can say that once the Tesla PI goes public, it would become a great rival for Apple. This will surely affect Apple’s market value. However, the price of Tesla PI is not expected to be cheap. This may still leave some room for Apple to play.
