The one-of-a-kind Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 flagship smartphone is now available for pre-order on all major platforms in China, starting on August 16. Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 turned out to be much cheaper than Galaxy Z Fold 4: it costs from $1,335 to $1,800.
Judging by the first reviews, Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 not only made up for almost all the shortcomings of the previous generation, but also became the leader in this segment in various parameters. First of all, its dimensions are surprising: Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 is the thinnest folding smartphone, as well as the thinnest smartphone in principle. The thickness when unfolded is 5.4 mm, when folded – only 11.4 mm. This was achieved, in particular, thanks to the new hinge mechanism.
Xiaomi MIX Fold 2 is the only Chinese smartphone to feature a Samsung Eco OLED screen with a resolution of 2160 x 1914 pixels. The internal screen has an aspect ratio of 4:3.55. Outside, there is a 6.56-inch screen with a resolution of 2520 x 1080 pixels and an aspect ratio of 21:9. It is made of Samsung E5 AMOLED material.
The phone is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 single-chip system, a built-in 4500mAh rechargeable battery, supports 67W fast charging, and can be fully charged in 40 minutes.
The phone received a 50-megapixel main camera with a Sony IMX7666 sensor, a 13-megapixel ultra-wide-angle module and a 2x zoom lens.
Foldable smartphone shipments to grow by almost 70% in 2022
Analyst firm IDC has unveiled its new study, according to which global shipments of foldable phones in 2022 will reach 13.5 million units. If we take into account that 8.1 million such devices were shipped in 2021, then the growth will be 66.6%. Experts note that the growth of the foldable smartphone market is largely due to the emergence of Samsung’s Flip and Fold lines. In particular, user interest is fueled by the recent launch of the new Galaxy Z Flip 4 and Fold 4, according to IDC.
In the future, sales of folding devices will also grow: for example, next year the supply of such models is expected to increase by 55.1%. In 2026, foldable smartphone shipments will reach 41.5 million units, with a compound annual growth rate of 38.7% between 2021 and 2026.
Analysts say the commercial market is ripe for the use of foldables as two-in-one devices that can replace both a phone and a tablet. But while the foldable phone market is expected to grow by almost 70 percent this year, they won’t go mainstream just yet. According to experts, such models will remain niche and flagship premium devices.
A new cyber clock and an affordable foldable smartphone? Huawei is preparing the announcement of P50 Pocket New and Watch GT Cyber
Huawei may introduce a new foldable smartphone and a new smartwatch by the end of this month.
Firstly, the source says about the P50 Pocket New clamshell, that is, it will be the successor to the P50 Pocket. True, the name hints at the fact that it is more about updating than about a full-fledged new model. In particular, there were rumors that the new version will receive a Snapdragon 778G SoC against Snapdragon 888 in the current model, that is, the P50 Pocket New will be a simplified and probably cheaper model.
Secondly, we are waiting for some kind of Watch GT Cyber smart watch. There are no details here, and it’s pointless to guess, since the line (Watch GT) has existed for a long time, but we haven’t seen Cyber models before, so it can be either something new or just some new version of an existing model.
The announcement may take place on October 25 or close to this date.
If this smartphone is really worth $106, this is an incredible deal. Oppo A77s is equipped with Snapdragon 680, 8 GB of RAM and a 90-Hz screen
Oppo has introduced a budget smartphone A77s, which can compete with numerous inexpensive smartphones from Xiaomi, Realme and others. If the information about its price is correct.
So, the Oppo A77s is supposedly only $106. The problem is that the model has only appeared in Thailand so far, and the price is not indicated on the Oppo website. The official sellers of this device in this country, instead of the correct price, are still indicating a plug, so we have data on $106 only from third-party sources.
If the price is correct, the device turns out to be very worthy, since there is a 90-Hz screen, a large battery, and a Qualcomm platform.
Powered by Snapdragon 680, the smartphone is also equipped with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of flash memory. The screen size is 6.56 inches at HD+ resolution. From the rest, you can select a 50-megapixel main camera and a 5000 mAh battery with 33-watt charging.
