Five days ago, a reliable source revealed the cost of Galaxy S23 phones in the US, and now another reliable insider has revealed the cost of new products in Europe. It is not clear whether inflation is to blame, but in Europe prices are noticeably higher.
So, if in the US for the base Galaxy S23 (with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of flash memory) they ask for $ 800, then in Europe – 950-960 euros, depending on the country. But in general, the prices in the Spanish retailer network will be as follows:
- Galaxy S23 8/256 GB – 1020 euros;
- Galaxy S23 Plus 8/256 GB – 1210 euros;
- Galaxy S23 Plus 8/512 GB – 1330 euros;
- Galaxy S23 Ultra 8/256 GB – 1410 euros;
- Galaxy S23 Ultra 12/512 GB – 1590 euros.
In general, Europeans are used to paying more for equipment than Americans, but since last year the difference has become even greater, and this applies not only to phones, but also to video cards and laptops (Apple, in particular). Producers justify this increase by high inflation in the region.
However, insider Roland Quandt, who shared this data, notes that at the start of sales (on pre-order) Samsung will have great deals. For example, for the price of the basic version, you can get a configuration with more memory.
Roland Quandt previously fully declassified the cameras of the GoPro 9 Black and GoPro 10 Black prior to their announcement and gave their exact cost, as well as published accurate renderings of the Nokia G21, Xiaomi Mi A3, Xiaomi Mi 9T, Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 4 and many other phones.
Huawei P60 will be weaker than P50 and even P40. The novelty lit up in the benchmark is not at all with the flagship platform
It seems that the Huawei P60 smartphone will not be a flagship in any form. The device lit up in the Geekbench database, where it showed an average result.
More precisely, 550 and 2269 points in single-threaded and multi-threaded modes, respectively. Details speak of eight cores in two clusters and an Adreno 642L GPU. And this means that the novelty will be based on the SoC Snapdragon 778G. The platform, of course, is excellent in its class, but far from the flagship.
Moreover, due to this platform, the Huawei P60 will be slower than the P50 with its Snapdragon 888, and even the Huawei P40 will be slightly faster since it is based on the Kirin 990.
At the same time, we do not yet know the prices, and it is not clear whether they will correspond to the level of performance. As for the rest, the P60 was previously credited with a main camera based on the Sony IMX789 sensor.
Everything ingenious is simple. Samsung Galaxy S23 gets a charging system that can bypass the battery and power the phone directly
Samsung has implemented an ingeniously simple solution in its latest flagship Galaxy S23. There is an item in the menu called Pause USB Power Delivery. When activated, the phone’s battery will not be charged, instead the device will be powered directly from the power supply.
This battery bypass system has an advantage in cases where the phone is used for a long time under load. For example, in games. If you power the device and simultaneously charge the battery, then you need high power, which is accompanied by significant heating of the phone.
The experiment showed that in the game, when the phone is powered in the usual way (through the battery), the consumption is 17 W, and if the battery bypass system is enabled, the consumption will be only 6 W – three times less. Naturally, the phone will heat up minimally. Moreover, this technology allows you to extend the life of the battery, as the number of full charge and discharge cycles is reduced.
It is important to note that the technology works with a battery charge of more than 20%. That is, if the mains power is interrupted unexpectedly, no data in the game or application will be lost, as the phone will automatically switch to battery power.
Official: the global version of Xiaomi 13 Pro will be presented on February 26. This will be the first Xiaomi phone with a Leica camera outside of China
Today, Xiaomi has published an official teaser with the premiere date of the global version of the Xiaomi 13 Pro phone. It will take place on February 26 on the eve of the opening of the MWC 2023 exhibition.
Xiaomi 13 Pro will be the company’s first phone with a Leica camera outside of China. No special differences from the Chinese version are expected, but the price will be higher: according to rumors, in Europe they will ask for about 1300 euros for a novelty. Thus, Xiaomi 13 Pro will be in the same price range as Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra.
Recall that the highlight of Xiaomi 13 Pro is the 50-megapixel Sony IMX989 inch sensor, which is part of the main camera. The phone also received a 6.73-inch OLED screen with a resolution of 3200 x 1440 pixels, Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 SoC, a 4820 mAh battery with support for 120 W wired charging and 50 W wireless power, IP68 protection.
Recall that yesterday the global version of its flagship was introduced by OnePlus. The base OnePlus 11 is priced at €830 in Europe.
