Clamshell smartphones are becoming more and more popular, so it is not surprising that different manufacturers are ready to enter this segment with their own models. Among such companies is Xiaomi. Previously, we have already provided schematic images of a promising Xiaomi Flip, taken from a patent application, and now a list of possible characteristics of this smartphone has been published on the Web.
According to the source, Xiaomi Flip may receive an internal AMOLED screen with a diagonal of 6.81 inches with a resolution of Full HD + and a frame rate of 120 Hz, as well as an external AMOLED screen with a diagonal of 1.9 inches with HD resolution.
The hardware basis of the smartphone will be the SoC Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 – the most powerful of the Qualcomm range at the moment. If so, the Xiaomi Flip could be the most powerful smartphone in the segment. Also, the device is credited with 8/12 GB of LPDDR5 RAM and 128/256 GB of UFS 3.1 flash memory.
The pictures show that the front camera of the model is dual. The source believes that the resolution of the main sensor will be 20 megapixels. But what will be the second sensor – the question. The main camera of the model is assigned sensors with a resolution of 50 and 13 megapixels. The battery capacity will be 3800 mAh, support for fast wired charging with a power of 67 watts is mentioned. Other features include Harman Kardon stereo speakers, Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2 adapters, and a 5G modem.
Interestingly, the source even indicates the dimensions and weight of the smartphone. So, the thickness in the folded state is 15.9 mm, in the unfolded state – 7.4 mm. Weight – 179 grams. The possible prices for the Xiaomi Flip are as follows: 8/128 GB – $ 1025, 8/256 GB – $ 1100 and 12/256 GB – $ 1230. The source assures that Xiaomi Flip will be released by the end of March in China along with Mix Fold 2.
iPhone 13 and 13 Pro Max became the best-selling phones in the world
Analyst Francisco Geronimo of IDC reports that Apple’s iPhone 13 was the world’s best-selling smartphone in the first quarter of this year despite major supply issues.
IDC does not disclose the total number of devices sold, as well as the market share of phones. The company recalls that the iPhone 12 and iPhone 11 were the top-selling phones of 2021 and 2020, respectively, so the iPhone 13 was expected to perform similarly. The iPhone 13 retails for $800 in the US, offering an Apple A15 Bionic SoC, a dual camera setup, a 6.1-inch notched display, and iOS 15.
The 6.7-inch iPhone 13 Pro Max took second place in the first quarter of 2022, indicating that people are more than willing to pay more for a bigger screen, better camera, and longer battery life.
The 6.1-inch iPhone 13 Pro took a respectable fourth place, while the tiny 5.4-inch iPhone 13 mini failed to make the top five. The latter further explains the rumors about Apple’s decision to phase out the iPhone mini. Combined, the iPhone 13 family accounts for 84% of total iPhone revenue in the first three months of 2022. The rest of the revenue comes from the iPhone SE (2022) and older iPhone 12 and iPhone 11 models. Analysts believe that the iPhone 14 could be even more successful.
Two 6.1-inch iPhones from Apple made the top five last quarter. But perhaps more important is the fact that the 6.7-inch Apple Pro model is outselling the 6.1-inch version. So the next generation 6.7-inch iPhone 14 Max could be an extremely profitable model for Apple. It will offer everything consumers love about Apple’s regular bestseller, but in a larger form factor that will be much more affordable than the Pro line.
The entry-level Samsung Galaxy A12 ranked third in the first quarter, while the mid-range Galaxy A32 ranked fifth.

The presentation of the novelty will take place on May 24, along with the smartphone, the Ryzen Edition Redmi Book Pro 2022 laptop will be shown, the teaser of which was also published by Lu Weibing.

The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 will be more powerful than the Galaxy S22 Ultra. The clamshell will indeed get a new Qualcomm platform
The Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 smartphone will indeed be potentially more productive than the Galaxy S22 Ultra.
Geekbench software confirms that the company’s new clamshell phone will feature a yet-to-be-revealed Snapdragon 8 Gen 1+ SoC, which should be announced tomorrow.
Of course, the potential of the new platform may be limited by the cooling system or settings, but in the benchmark, the smartphone scores 1277 and 3642 points in single-threaded and multi-threaded modes, respectively. Also, the test device had 8 GB of RAM and was running Android 12.
The Galaxy Z Flip4 will be a very important smartphone for the company. Firstly, because foldable devices are becoming more popular, and Samsung is the leader in this market, and secondly, because Flip4 will account for 70% of the production of the company’s foldable flagships.
