After Samsung presented two new foldables at the Unpacked event, Xiaomi is not letting itself down and is also presenting a new foldable smartphone. The Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 is not only the second foldable from the manufacturer, but also the thinnest smartphone in the world.
OnePlus has been struggling with a loss of identity at least since the departure of founder Carl Pei to Nothing. The OnePlus 10 Pro showed this most strongly. Sure, not a bad smartphone, but somehow little progress compared to its predecessors. The company now wants to make up for this with the OnePlus 10T, which will be unveiled on 3 August.
“Master of Speed”, “The Performance Monster” and “The Epitome of Power” – the names for the past POCO smartphones are brimming with superlatives. Now they release the much-anticipated POCO F4, the cheaper alternative to the recently released POCO F4 GT, under the slogan “Strong in every respect”. But looking at the spec sheet, one wonders: “Strong in what respect?”
Vivo presented their new flagship smartphone, the vivo X80 Pro, globally with a big launch event in Berlin. The Zeiss cooperation is again at the start, but also a large fingerprint scanner for two fingers. The breakthrough for vivo?
What a back and forth! The Xiaomi 12 Ultra supplies the rumor mill with new ingredients like no other device. At the latest since the announcement of the cooperation between Leica and Xiaomi, there have been new speculations, and now also first render pictures. The back alone is likely to outshine the Mi 11 Ultra.
More and more gadgets are wirelessly chargeable – fortunately! Apple is setting a particularly good example here, even if it is slow. As an alternative to the never implemented AirPower, there is this foldable wireless 3-in-1 charger, which is of course also compatible with all other Qi-enabled devices.
A branding from Leica was like a stamp for a good camera for Huawei, which was also proven with the “photo wonder” Huawei P30. Now this partnership has come to an end, but the next cooperation already follows. Xiaomi and Leica Camera announce a partnership that is supposed to result in the first flagship smartphone as early as July.
POCO – the four letters stand for either affordable furniture or very good value for money. The fourth generation of the F series culminates in the strongest POCO smartphone to date: the POCO F4 GT. The “epitome of power” is a gaming smartphone – or is it?
OnePlus has already expanded its portfolio considerably, but an R model has not yet “officially” made it to Europe. Will that change with the OnePlus 10R? And what does it offer besides ultra-fast 150W charging?
Pro Plus as a name is not that new, unfortunately, Huawei got us into this back then. For the Redmi Note 11 Pro+, this means that it is even slightly better than the Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G. The sixth (!) phone in the Redmi Note series can even be charged with 120W!
With the ability to fix the phone to the laptop or monitor, you get the chance to easily multitask from anywhere. It also saves space at work or at home. But for whom is the holder advantageous?
After Xiaomi recently unveiled its new flagship generation in Germany, the subsidiary brand now introduces its new flagship generation in China. The gaming edition of the Redmi K50 is now followed by the regular Redmi K50 and Redmi K50 Pro. Once again, the benchmark for battery capacity is set high, but interesting processors are also chosen.
Besides the continuation of the realme GT series, they have also continued the number series. With the realme 9 Pro+, the manufacturer not only relies on unnecessary name extension (what the hell is Pro+?), but also on a new MediaTek processor The right choice?
Besides the Xiaomi 12, the Chinese manufacturer has probably presented their real flagship. The Xiaomi 12 Pro rather follows in the footsteps of the Xiaomi Mi 11 and wants to compete with the established competition. It could even be the best Xiaomi smartphone so far.
Besides the Redmi Note 11 Pro, there is now also a Redmi Note 11 Pro 5G in this generation. In the last generation, there was a 5G version of the normal Redmi Note. Now the 5G version is also described as a 108 MP powerhouse. Is the difference only in the 5G compatibility?
For the first time, there was an S upgrade with the Redmi Note 7, but only in India. The first S upgrade for the global market came in 2021 with the Redmi Note 10S. Now the Redmi Note 11S follows, which, like the predecessor, tries to be the better version of the normal Redmi Note (11). Will it succeed?
Doogee, Doogee, Doogee. The manufacturer has not been heard from for quite some time, but it used to attract attention with modular outdoor phones. The new Doogee V20 outdoor smartphone now surprises with a second screen, AMOLED display and wireless charging. Finally again!
Trustworthy and detailed leaks about the upcoming OnePlus flagship – the OnePlus 10 Pro. Supposed specs include an increased battery to 5,000 mAh, a triple camera, the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip (previously known as SD 998), and possibly 120 watts of charging.
The Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro is located between the Xiaomi Mi 11 and the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, at least in China. It uses the same design, but a revised camera system.
The Xiaomi 12 is supposed to be the new flagship of the now second-largest smartphone manufacturer worldwide. Like the Mix 4 and Xiaomi Pad 5, not only the “Mi” in the name is dropped, but apparently everything will revolve around the 12 in the name. What can we expect from the flagship and what leaks are there already? We give the Xiaomi 12 a fact check!
