Insider #3255: Touch Bar on iPhone, Motorola G64y, Samsung Glass Chips and Zeekr Mix

In this issue of Insiders: iPhone will get a touchscreen control panel; Motorola G64y 5G specs declassified before premiere; Samsung is developing chips with a glass substrate; Details about the new Zeekr electric car have been revealed.

iPhone will get a touchscreen control panel

IT Home has published illustrations from Apple’s patent application, in which it describes an analogue of the Touch Bar for a smartphone. The images show the touch panel located on the left side of the case, which acts as an auxiliary control element.


Judging by the illustrations, the content of the “screen” can be customized, and it will change depending on the applications currently running. At the same time, it is assumed that with its help it will be possible to adjust the volume level of the gadget. It is not yet known whether there are plans to mass produce such iPhones – perhaps the company is just protecting its intellectual property.

Motorola G64y 5G specs declassified before premiere

A card of the brand’s yet-to-be-announced device has appeared on the Google Play Console website. According to the source, the smartphone will be based on the MediaTek MT6855 processor (the markings correspond to the Dimensity 7020 or Dimensity930 chip).

It is also known that the gadget will receive a display with a resolution of 2400×1080 pixels, modifications with 8 and 12 GB of RAM and firmware based on Android 13. The release date of the future novelty has not yet been announced.

Samsung Develops Glass-Backed Chips

According to the Korean edition of SeDaily, Samsung has instructed its subsidiary Samsung Electro-Mechanics to start work on creating glass substrates for chips used in the field of AI computing and other areas.


Among the advantages of the new technology are long service life, reliability, high density of elements and low thickness, which allows the integration of several transistors into one unit. The start of mass production of new products is expected in 2026, but there are no details about the chips themselves yet. Earlier, a similar solution was presented by the Japanese company Dai Nippon Printing.

Details about the new Zeekr electric car have been revealed

The Chinese portal Autohome has published photos of the yet-to-be-unveiled Zeekr Mix. The company developed the car together with a startup Waymo called M-Vision. It was planned to be equipped with an “autopilot”, but later the concept changed.

The vehicle is built on the SEA-M platform. Its body dimensions are 4688 x 1995 x 1755 mm (wheelbase – 3008 mm), weight – 2639 or 2739 kg depending on the battery capacity. The car is a five-seater, but it is also possible to produce a six-seater modification with three seats in the front. The engine power is 421 hp, the maximum speed is 180 km/h.
