Xiaomi has published official images, a promotional video, and the characteristics of the new smartphone Redmi Note 10 Pro, which claims to be the new bestseller in the budget segment.
So, the Redmi Note 10 Pro smartphone is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 732G single-chip system, as well as a main camera with a 108 megapixel image sensor. In 2019, Xiaomi released the world’s first smartphone with such a camera, the Xiaomi Mi Note 10. Last year, the Xiaomi Mi 10, Mi 10 Pro, Mi 10T and MiT 10 Pro followed, and the Xiaomi Mi 11 came out earlier this year. The 108MP camera will be used in the budget Redmi Note 10 lineup.
The second, no less, and perhaps more important point is the use of Super AMOLED screens with a refresh rate of 120 Hz. Such a screen is used only in the flagship smartphone Xiaomi Mi 11. Last year’s flagships Xiaomi Mi 10 and Mi 10 Pro received 90 Hz screens, while the Mi 10T and MiT 10 Pro use an IPS display with a frequency of up to 144 Hz. For the Redmi Note series, this is truly a landmark event. According to the latest data published by Xiaomi, we are talking about a 6.67-inch screen with a hole for the front camera.
Finally, the Redmi Note 10 Pro will be equipped with a 5020mAh battery that will support 33W fast charging.
The presentation of new products is expected on March 4.
The best camera phone on the way? Huawei Mate 50 launched in mass production, it will be presented on September 7 along with smart watches Huawei Watch GT4
Huawei has started mass production of the new Mate 50 flagship smartphones, according to a Chinese resource that cites supply chain sources. Huawei has traditionally been very strong in terms of camera capabilities, and it is possible that some Mate 50 Pro will top the DxOMark rankings in the future. .
In general, four models are expected in the series: Mate 50e, Mate 50, Mate 50 Pro and Mate 50 RS. They will receive curved screens from local (Chinese) manufacturers and the recently introduced HarmonyOS 3.0. The younger model is credited with SoC Snapdragon 778G, all the rest – Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 without 5G support. However, some sources also talk about the use of Snapdragon 888 (also in the version with an LTE modem), so not everything is clear here yet.
The premiere of Huawei Mate 50 in China is expected on September 7, on the same day the company may introduce the Watch GT4 smart watch. There are no special details about this device: it is only reported that the watch will receive a larger screen than the current model, improved optical sensors and, of course, HarmonyOS 3.0.
Will there be more 200 megapixel cameras in smartphones? OmniVision OVB0A sensor introduced
There may be more smartphones with 200-megapixel sensors in the near future, and we are probably talking not only about expensive devices. OmniVision has introduced its second sensor of this class.
The OVB0A sensor has an optical format of 1/1.395″ or 1/1.4″ for simplicity. That is, it is quite large, but smaller than the same Samsung ISOCELL HP1, while it is exactly the same as ISOCELL HP3. The pixel size is 0.56 µm.
The sensor supports 16-cell binning, so that photos are obtained with a resolution of 12.5 megapixels. Video can be shot in 4K at 120 fps, 8K at 30 fps is also supported. The sensor should appear in smartphones in the fourth quarter.
OVB0A is OmniVision’s second 200MP sensor. The first was OVB0B in a larger optical format. It was introduced back in January, but in the end it did not appear in any smartphone. So, if OVB0A does not repeat the fate of the firstborn, then it will just become the first available on the market.
Autonomy at the level of iPhone 13 Pro Max for only 250 euros. DxOMark tested Honor X7
DxOMark specialists got to the Honor X7 smartphone, but not to evaluate the camera, but to test the power subsystem.
Recall that the smartphone is equipped with a standard battery today with a capacity of 5000 mAh and not the most outstanding charging power of 22.5 watts.
At the same time, thanks to the screen with a low resolution and SoC Snapdragon 680, the device showed a very decent autonomy, having lasted 2 days and 17 hours in the source tests. For comparison, the iPhone 13 Pro Max showed a result of 2 days and 20 hours, that is, with a price difference of about four times, the autonomy of smartphones is very close.
The charging parameters are also close. From 0 to 80%, the smartphone charges in 1 hour and 5 minutes, and it takes 2 hours and 31 minutes to fully charge. The flagship of Apple is 1 hour 1 minute and 2 hours 11 minutes, respectively. True, the iPhone 13 Pro Max was eventually rated at 89 points, and the Honor smartphone received only 74 points, which puts it in 40th place in the overall ranking. The reason is that in a number of subtests, the Apple device is a cut above. For example, when playing music, it lasted almost 62 hours versus less than 29 hours for the Honor X7. But in games, the latter is better: 9 hours and 44 minutes versus 8 hours and 52 minutes.
