If one were to take a critical tone, one could say that Xiaomi’s subsidiary now stands for the amazing value for money for which Xiaomi was once known. No matter what you want to call it, the brand new POCO M3 apparently wants to be the best smartphone up to $150. And the signs are damn good.
Currently the OPPO Inno Days are taking place in China, an event to present new concepts and innovations of the manufacturer. The highlight is the OPPO X 2021, a concept smartphone with a retractable or roll-out OLED display!
Ulefone is one of the Chinese manufacturers that have been around forever, focusing on battery and outdoor smartphones. The latest coup is the Ulefone Armor 9, with integrated thermal imaging camera, huge battery and interesting accessories.
After the Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite 5G and the Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Lite, Xiaomo was not tired of releasing another Lite smartphone. The Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite is even equipped with a new processor and 120 Hz display.
The Xiaomi Mi 9T Pro has become the favorite smartphone of many Xiaomi fans last year. The T-series was brand new and with the release of the Poco F2 Pro we hardly expected a continuation. But now the manufacturer has expanded the Mi 10 series with two more top models: the Xiaomi Mi 10T and Xiaomi Mi 10T Pro. Xiaomi makes some surprising decisions.
The Royole Flexpai was the first smartphone with a folding display at the end of 2018. It served as a prototype, was therefore very expensive and not intended for mass production. But it did spark this movement and forced major manufacturers like Samsung and Huawei to introduce their foldable smartphones. Now the manufacturer has introduced its successor: the Royole FlexPai 2.
With the release of the POCO F2 Pro, the Xiaomi sub-brand POCO has made it clear where the journey is headed: there will be several POCO smartphones. While the Indian market was already being supplied with a POCO X2 and a POCO M2 Pro, things were quiet in Europe next to the flagship. But now there is the first middle class smartphone: the POCO X3 NFC.
The release of the Xiaomi Mi 10 in China is actually almost half a year ago now, so it’s time for a revised version. On August 11th, Xiaomi celebrates its 10th anniversary and released the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra – with 120x zoom, 120 Hz refresh rate and 120W charging!
Xiaomi did not miss out during the 10th anniversary celebration and presented not only the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra but also a new edition of the Redmi K30 Pro. The Chinese equivalent of the Poco F2 Pro is released as Redmi K30 Ultra with 120 Hz refresh rate – at a top price!
After the last Xiaomi Mi Note 3 (release in September 2017) the manufacturer has released the new Xiaomi Mi Note 10. With a 108 MP Penta camera, it attracted attention – and yet we’ve never been so sceptical about a Xiaomi smartphone.
We haven’t heard from the smartphone manufacturer Oukitel in a while. But now we’re surprised by the Oukitel WP7, a “modular” outdoor smartphone with various attachments.
The probably most popular smartphone series from Xiaomi is getting new blood. The Redmi Note 9 series is the cheapest model, while the Redmi Note 9S and Redmi Note 9 Pro are almost identical in construction. Are the differences worth the extra charge of the Redmi Note 9 series or will you be happy with the Redmi Note 9S?
The manufacturer Cubot has been in the Chinese smartphone industry for several years now. With the Cubot P40, they also choose a well-known name, but for under $100 they even offer NFC. Is the plan working out?
Even though Xiaomi has many top models in its ranks, strictly speaking there is only one flagship: the Mi Smartphone. The new flagship followed in spring 2020: the Xiaomi Mi 10 and Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro. Will Xiaomi’s entry into the high-end segment succeed?
After the Redmi Note 9 Pro and Note 9 Pro Max were introduced in India a few weeks ago, we were just waiting for this news. The Redmi Note 9S was officially introduced for Europe today and could become the new middle class king.
The Redmi Note series by Xiaomi and Redmi respectively is probably the most popular smartphone series by the tech giant. Also the “normal” Redmi Note 8 seems to be a no-brainer again. Or have they changed too little here?
After the Xiaomi smartphone is before the next Xiaomi smartphone. Although the Redmi Note 9 & Note 9 Pro were only introduced at the end of April, the Redmi Note 10 and Redmi Note 10 Pro are probably already in the starting blocks in China.
The Pocophone F1 was an extremely important smartphone for Xiaomi in 2018. The price-performance killer was a real flagship for just under $300 and thus drew the attention of many people to Xiaomi for the first time. The POCO F2 Pro was introduced and is, as expected, identical in construction to the Xiaomi Redmi K30 Pro. But Poco has also become more expensive.
Leaks become reality, as so often in the Xiaomi universe. The manufacturer has introduced a lite version of the Xiaomi Mi Note 10, which was launched in November 2019. The Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Lite comes without the controversial 108 megapixel sensor, though.
After the Redmi Note 9S a few weeks ago, Xiaomi presented the new Redmi Note 9 Pro and the “normal” Redmi Note 9 in a livestream event. Does this one find its place in the Redmi Note series?
