Sony today officially unveiled the flagship and very expensive Xperia Pro-I smartphone. A feature of the novelty, of course, is an image sensor of an optical format 1 inch with a resolution of 12 megapixels. Such a sensor should demonstrate an unprecedented (for a smartphone) quality of shooting in low light conditions, since it has very large pixels – 2.4 microns in size. The main sensor is paired with a 24mm Zeiss Tessar T lens with variable apertures of F / 2.0 and F / 4.0.

Sony notes that the Xperia Pro-I uses a professional-grade Real-time Eye autofocus system that recognizes both people and animals. Autofocus has 315 points that cover 90 percent of the sensor area. For more convenience, Sony has provided a two-position shutter release button on the side edge.
There is one more round button, it immediately starts video recording (maximum quality – 4K at 120 fps). For videographers, Sony even offered a special accessory with the self-explanatory name Vlog Monitor.
It mounts to the back of your smartphone, has a 3.5-inch 720p screen, and has presets for multiple video capture modes. In the main camera system, there is also a fourth module – 3D ToF, and the front camera of the smartphone uses an 8-megapixel sensor and a lens with an aperture of F / 2.0.
The screen in the Xperia Pro-I is also special, with a 6.5-inch 4K OLED panel (3840 x 1644 pixels). The frame rate is 120 Hz, the polling rate of the sensor layer is 240 Hz. The display is protected by tempered Gorilla Glass Victus. The back panel of the smartphone is also framed with glass – it uses Gorilla Glass 6.

Good news for Samsung smartphone lovers. Galaxy S22 will not rise in price in comparison with Galaxy S21
As the thematic resource Sammobile writes with reference to its sources, Galaxy S22, the base model of Samsung’s new flagship line is likely to keep the cost at the level of its predecessor – Galaxy S21. That is, the price will be $ 800 for the base version of the Galaxy S22. Rumors have credited Samsung with wanting to sell 14 million Galaxy S22 smartphones next year, and such a conservative pricing approach will only help achieve that goal.
There is no such data regarding other smartphones of the line. So the Galaxy S22 Plus and Galaxy S22 Ultra may well go up in price. As for the Galaxy S22, Samsung will have to somehow separate it from the Galaxy S21 FE, which will cost only $ 100 less ($ 700). And if earlier, with the same price difference between the Galaxy S20 FE and Galaxy S21, Samsung had no problems, because these smartphones came out with a big time difference, now there will definitely be problems, since the Galaxy S21 FE and Galaxy S22 will go on sale with a difference of about a month.
As a flexible smartphone, Samsung has left all iPhones far behind. Galaxy Z Flip 3 became the leader of the company’s home market
Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 3, as it turned out, became the most popular smartphone in the manufacturer’s home market in the last quarter.
Galaxy Z Flip 3, despite the far from the lowest price and not yet the most familiar form factor, managed to bypass all competitors, and the diagram shows that it is noticeably bypassed.
The second place went to the Galaxy S21, and the third place was taken by the inexpensive Galaxy A32. In addition, the Fold 3 entered the top ten, and in fourth place, and the tenth place of the very specific Galaxy Quantum 2 with a quantum random number generator seems to be something incredible at all.
At the same time, Samsung smartphones occupy nine lines out of ten, and in general the company occupied 85% of the home market. The only outsider in the top ten is the world’s best-selling iPhone 12, but only in ninth place.
The most productive low-cost Android smartphones around the world. There are two well-deserved leaders and one new contender for the throne in the AnTuTu ranking
The AnTuTu benchmark team has published a ranking of mid-range Android smartphones for November 2021 for the international market. It differs markedly from the similar AnTuTu ranking in China.
According to AnTuTu experts, phones based on the Snapdragon 778G SoC continue to dominate the ranking of mid-range smartphones.
For the fourth month in a row, Realme GT Master continues to reign in first place, gaining 537,231 points in November. As noted by AnTuTu, Naoto Fukasawa’s suitcase-style design has made this smartphone very recognizable and one of the hottest on the mobile phone market this year.
The second place is also taken by the Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite for the fourth month in a row with 524,464 points. But the Honor 50 burst into third place with 516 915 points, which was not previously represented in the international ranking. It’s funny that a new generation series, Honor 60, has already been presented in China.
Then in the ranking are Xiaomi Mi 11 Lite 5G NE (505 274), Huawei Nova 9 (499 078), Galaxy A52s 5G (498 705), Galaxy M52 5G (490 762), Huawei Nova 7 (457 964), Oppo Reno6 5G (429 879), Xiaomi Mi 10T Lite 5G (388 719).
Statistics collected from November 1 to November 30, 2021. The AnTuTu rankings use average, not the highest scores. For each smartphone, the results of at least 1000 tests were taken into account – models with fewer tests are not included in the rating.
