Xiaomi has just made its 11T Pro smartphone official, with the 11T Pro packing a 6.67-inch FHD+ AMOLED display with the beautiful 120Hz refresh rate, and that wicked-fast 120W charging technology.
The new Xiaomi 11T Pro has its 120Hz display protected by Corning's very latest Gorilla Glass Victus, with the AMOLED panel also supporting the HDR10+ standard. Inside, Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 888 is the heart and soul with its SoC while you've got options for either 8GB or 12GB of RAM.
Xiaomi is keeping things cool with vapor chamber cooling technology, which you'll need given the specs + 120Hz display and then 120W HyperCharge insanity thrown into the mix. The 120W HyperCharge technology can take you from 0% charge to 100% charge in 17 minutes flat, which is crazy... hell, you can go from 0-70% in just 10 minutes. Wowzers.
Samsung has just launched its two new foldable phones with the new Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3, Apple just announced its new iPhone 13 family of handsets, and Google is now teasing its next-gen Pixel 6 smartphones.
In some new advertising for Japan, Google launched a new campaign announcing their own original chips. The new original chips were made with a "crispy finish" and were "made by 100% Google", made with 5 different flavors that are all dipped in that "Googley Salty Flavor". Righty-o.
Google's new Pixel 6 smartphones use their own in-house Tensor SoC, which is why we're seeing the marketing push of its "own original chips" as it's about to use its own original chip, inside of the new Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro smartphones... get it?
Apple announced a plethora of new products today during its "California Streaming" event, with the new flagship iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max announced.
Apple's new flagship iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max have a next-gen A15 Bionic chip, up to 1TB of storage -- a first for the iPhone -- brighter, smoother Super Retina XDR displays with ProMotion 120Hz refresh, and so much more.
The new iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max still retain their 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch displays as the previous iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 12 Pro Max, but they have an upgraded Super Retina XDR display with Pro Motion 120Hz support -- as well as the notch area being 20% smaller.
The world of 200-megapixel camera sensors inside of smartphones will soon be normal, thanks to the new Samsung ISOCELL HP1 camera sensor that will usher in 200-megapixel camera technology.
Rumor has it that Xiaomi's new flagship smartphone could pack a Samsung ICOCELL HP1 chip that has pixel binning technology called ChameleonCell -- this new technology will allow a new smartphone with the camera sensor to switch between two-by-two, four-by-four, or full pixel layouts on-the-fly based on the lighting condition.
Xiaomi's new flagship smartphone could have a 200-megapixel camera sensor, backed up by a 50-megapixel ultra-wide sensor. The new Xiaomi smartphones should have 120W HyperCharge technology, but joined by a 200-megapixel camera sensor it'll make the new flagship smartphones from Xiaomi some of the best-specced handsets on the planet.
AMD will be providing the GPU side of Samsung's new Exynos 2200 SoC, with a custom RDNA 2 GPU that has been spotted in some fresh Geekbench benchmarks.
Samsung's new Exynos 2200 SoC is expected to have 8 cores with 4 of them @ up to 1.73GHz, 3 of them at up to 2.5GHz, and a single core at up to 2.59GHz. The new Geekbench results have Samsung's new Exynos 2200 performing under the Exynos 2100 chip, but we are just looking at it in engineering sample (ES) form.
The latest rumor on the RDNA 2-based GPU in Samsung's new Exynos 2200 has it featuring 384 Stream Processors, with 6 Compute Units. The new Geekbench result has the GPU listed as the Samsung Voyager EVTA1, a codename that has been used before.
Apple is expected to unveil its new iPhone 13 and iPhone 13 Pro smartphones in less than 48 hours, with rumors surfacing of the company bumping up the max storage to 1TB on the flagship iPhone 13 Pro model.
In a new research note, analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said that the new iPhone 13 family would drop the 64GB base model in favor of a 128GB base model. Apple will reportedly have 1TB of storage options for both the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max smartphones -- a milestone for Apple: 1TB storage in an iPhone.
Apple offering 128GB on the base iPhone 13 is good to see, and offering up to 1TB on the flagship iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max is nice to see. Even better in that there'll be a new chip powering the iPhone 13, new cameras, and a 120Hz refresh display -- which makes a big difference and will introduce an even smoother experience across the board.
Xiaomi has just confirmed that it will have 120W HyperCharge support with its next-gen Xiaomi X11T Pro smartphone, which will be debuting on September 15 at 8PM GMT.
The company confirmed the news on its official Xioami Twitter account, that its next-gen X11T Pro smartphone will have incredibly fast 120W HyperCharge support. Xiaomi had just 30W charging on the regular Mi 10T Pro, and super-fast 120W charging on its Mi 10 Ultra, but now the 11T Pro will have 120W HyperCharge support.
We are to expect Xiaomi's new X11T Pro smartphone to roll out with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, a beautiful 120Hz AMOLED display, and 5000mAh battery. The reveal event takes place on September 15, which is next week... so we don't have much more time to wait until we know all about Xiaomi's next-gen X11T Pro smartphone.
Samsung's new Galaxy Z Flip 3 smartphone is one of the most interesting, and looks to be the most awesome foldable smartphone yet -- costs $999, but is already discounted to just $699-$749.
The new Galaxy Z Flip 3 5G 128GB is discounted down to $699 at Newegg and locked to T-Mobile, a discount of $300 from its $999 MSRP. If you want an unlocked Galaxy Z Flip 3 foldable smartphone to use on any carrier, then that has $250 off which drops the price of the unlocked foldable to $749.
Samsung itself is giving consumers a $50 introductory discount on the new Galaxy Z Flip 3 foldable, and even more discount if you have a Galaxy smartphone to trade-in. Samsung is offering up to $600 credit for some of the highest online instant trade-in values.
Samsung has just unleashed its new Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Z Flip 3 smartphones, but at the same time the South Korean giant has teased its prototype double-folding Galaxy Fold, check it out:
At the IMID 2021 (International Meeting for Information Displays) the company showed off its prototype Galaxy Fold, with its double-folding screen folding in and out like an "S" curve, which looks really cool. It was only a prototype and was obviously changed for the first-gen Galaxy Fold, which has continued on with its small front screen and large inner screen on the Galaxy Z Fold 3.
The prototype double-foldable phone rocks a 7.2-inch multi-foldable OLED panel, with Samsung calling it the Samsung Flex In & Out, which uhhh, I don't think would've been a popular name. Samsung Galaxy Flex maybe? Samsung Galaxy Fold Double? Something a little spicy, at least.
I don't know how Jerry does it, but he has utterly destroyed yet another flagship smartphone for the joy of his audience -- torturing Samsung's new foldable Galaxy Z Fold 3 smartphone.
Samsung's new Galaxy Z Fold 3 foldable smartphone is a tour de force of technology, with Jerry cutting it, burning it, and just generally causing havoc with the latest flagship Galaxy foldable smartphone. Samsung's new Galaxy Z Fold 3 is IP68 waterproof... but Jerry does what he does best and rubs a handful of rocks, dirt, and dust into the phone making me cringe so hard.
The new foldable handles a flame to its front screen for around 14 seconds but survives -- while the inner 7.6-inch display takes the battle of flames for twice that long and comes out in even better condition. Samsung's new Galaxy Z Fold 3 is the most durable yet it seems, with even the fingerprint sensor on the side of the foldable phone working after being hacked and slashed by Jerry.
