Xu Qi, Vice President of Realme and President of China Office, announced today at the China Mobile Global Partner conference that the company is preparing to enter the high-end smartphone market.
He confirmed that the first high quality new products will be released early next year. Xu Qi did not disclose specific information, however, he confirmed that prices will exceed 5,000 yuan or $ 780.
Realme is the fastest growing smartphone brand, so it’s no surprise that the company has publicly announced a high-end market entry after Xiaomi, Oppo and Vivo.
Xiaomi, Oppo and Vivo have already launched smartphones priced at over 5,000 yuan, hoping to fill the market gap left by Huawei. This is especially good for Xiaomi, which has greatly inflated the prices of its flagships since last year.
It is worth noting that after Xiaomi has independent brand Redmi, which continues to cover the segment of budget devices.
Google expects excellent sales of Pixel 7 smartphones
It seems that despite the fact that the line of smartphones Pixel 7 is not very different from its predecessors, Google believes that they will sell very well.
The search giant has reportedly ordered 8 million new-generation devices and expects to double sales of new models relative to the Pixel 6 line.
At the same time, we recall that just the other day we learned that in six years Google has sold only 27.6 million Pixel smartphones. That is, the company intends to sell almost 30% of the total number of smartphones sold over six years only for older Pixel 7 devices.
It is also reported that the company has ordered 4 million lower class models, i.e. Pixel 7a models. In total, it turns out 12 million smartphones per year, or almost 45% of the total number of smartphones sold in six years.
We’ll find out how Google’s forecasts come true in about a year, but we can recall that at one time the models of the Pixel 6 line showed a multiple increase in sales relative to their predecessors.
Are Huawei flagships disappearing from the global market? The company has removed P50 smartphones from the range of global models, but not everywhere yet
A couple of weeks ago, Huawei removed the Leica logo from its P50 smartphones as Leica is now partnering with Xiaomi. Now it is reported that Huawei has completely removed the P50 smartphones from the range of global models.
However, the situation is not yet completely clear. Initially, the information was shared by a German thematic resource, and then it was repeated by many others. But the fact is that all models of the P50 line really disappeared from the German Huawei website, however, they are on the Huawei websites of some other European regions.
There are no official comments from Huawei itself, and therefore it is impossible to form a final picture. Perhaps Huawei has begun the process of withdrawing flagship devices from the global market, but it’s just that the changes have not yet been introduced on all regional sites.
The creator of the iPod and the Made for iPhone program, Tony Fadell, called Apple a monopoly, and the EU requirement to transfer the iPhone to USB-C is correct
Former Apple Vice President Tony Fadell is the creator of the iPod, who was responsible for developing the original player. Fadell shared his thoughts on the European Union requirements for an iPhone with a USB-C connector. The engineer believes that this is the correct requirement, and also added that Apple is in a monopoly position.
The former Apple VP said he was not concerned about the EU forcing Apple and other smartphone makers to use USB-C as “they’re just forcing Apple to do the right thing.”
In another tweet, Fadell said that this requirement is only being made because Apple has a monopoly. The engineer believes that some regulation and standardization is needed in the interests of consumers, since companies are not always interested in doing “the right thing in the public interest.”
He also noted that getting Apple to change the iPhone’s connector based on the environmental argument is “much easier than a monopoly litigation.” Fadell then said that Apple doesn’t like third parties telling it what to do.
Readers in the comments pointed out that Apple is against USB-C because the company makes a lot of money from the MFi (Made for iPhone/iPad) program for certified accessories. Fadell, who was behind the invention of the program, agreed with them.
