Redmi has published new teasers with the characteristics of the Redmi K40 Gaming Edition smartphones. Rumors attributed these models (the base one is called the Gaming Edition, the top one – Gaming Enhanced Edition) with a 5000 mAh battery, but in fact it turned out to be even slightly larger – 5065 mAh. For a modern gaming smartphone, this is by no means a record, but the Redmi K40 Gaming Edition is designed with an emphasis on compactness: it will become the thinnest and lightest smartphone of its kind.
Actually, another teaser indicates that it will be very light. Finally, the third picture confirms support for 67W fast charging – like the Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra. However, they are built on Snapdragon 888, and the gaming Redmi K40 uses the MediaTek Dimensity 1200 SoC, in which it was clearly more difficult to implement such fast charging.
Compactness and lightness are good, but there is also a downside. The head of Redmi, Lu Weibing, hinted that the gaming Redmi K40 may not have an IR emitter and NFC. Supposedly additional retractable magnetic keys, stereo speakers, main camera modules, a large battery simply left no room for them.
Finally, Redmi posted a video demonstrating the built-in RGB lighting – for some reason, it is located in the main camera unit, and not on the body itself.
We will remind, Redmi K40 Gaming Edition and Redmi K40 Gaming Enhanced Edition will be officially presented on Tuesday, April 27. According to preliminary data, we will sell only the basic version, which will not have additional slide-out keys.
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.
Redmi Note 11T Pro+ will get the best 144Hz flat screen. Together with the smartphone will present Ryzen Edition Redmi Book Pro 2022
Lu Weibong, President of Xiaomi Group China and CEO of Redmi, posted new teasers of the upcoming presentation on his Weibo social network page.
The first teaser is dedicated to the Redmi Note 11T Pro + smartphone, which is equipped with a flagship flat LCD screen with a ratio of 20.5: 9 and support for an adaptive refresh rate (7 values) of the image up to 144 Hz. Also, the screen provides reliable eye protection and supports Dolby Vision.
Lu Weibing said that Redmi Note 11T Pro + will be equipped with the best display in its class, and we tend to believe him, because this has happened before in the Redmi line.
Redmi Note 11T Pro+ is also confirmed to be equipped with fast LPDDR5 RAM and improved heat dissipation technology.
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.
Redmi Note 11T became available for pre-order in China even before the presentation.
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.
