For yet another week, the Nothing phone (1) is dominating our news section but this time around everyone was eager to see what our reviewers had to say about it since the phone went official last week.
We finally got the first official-looking press renders of the upcoming Samsung foldables – the Galaxy Z Flip4 and Z Fold4. In other not-so-great Samsung news, the company allegedly decided to scrape the Galaxy S22 FE release in favor of manufacring more Galaxy S22 Ultra units.
Xiaomi revealed the Redmi K50i 5G in China with Dimensity 8100 SoC and 144Hz LCD panel. Nubia made headlines with its Z40S Pro smartphone running the latest Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chip.
Two other phones got to see broad daylight this week and that’s the iQOO 10 and 10 Pro – both running the SD 8+ Gen 1 with the latter boasting 200W fast charging.
And at long last WhatsApp brought support for cross-platform chat history transfer between iOS and Android. A long-awaited feature for years is finally available.
Check out the full list of popular news stories this week below.
There will be official teaser over the next three weeks, for the phones, but also the wearables that will be unveiled on the 10th.
Both use the 8+ Gen 1 chip, in fact, in addition to the custom V1+ chip that helps with image processing from the GPU and the camera.
That enormous 1″ sensor plus the two other Sony sensors on the back cost less than the Snapdragon chipset or the Samsung-made display.
That display will also be slightly shorter and wider, bringing it closer to a more conventional aspect ratio.
There are three models: one with 80W charging, one with 120W (including an 18GB/1TB model) and a sci-fi themed special edition unit.
Dr. Shin is also a member of the INTERPOL DarkNet Working Group and led the development of Samsung Knox Vault.
Samsung hasn’t announced the new Z Flip4 and Z Fold4, nor the new watches and buds, but the reservation process is simple and doesn’t require a downpayment.
