This is an interesting statement considering that Xiaomi usually launches its flagship smartphone in February. The company is reported to have sent the Mi 11 for network certification, indicating that a launch is just around the corner.
Xiaomi Mi 11 can get a curved screen on all four sides. Earlier leaks indicate that the phone will feature a Quad HD + display with a notch for the front camera. Both the Mi 11 and Mi 11 Pro are expected to have a 120Hz refresh rate screen.
If Xiaomi is indeed planning to release the Mi 11 in December 2020, teasers with the features and specs of the upcoming phone will start popping up in the coming weeks. In this case, the company should also announce a launch date soon.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset is built on a 5nm process technology and is integrated with the third generation Snapdragon X60 5G modem, which supports 5G mmWave and sub-6 in all major bands around the world.
Xiaomi isn’t the only company to have confirmed the release of an SD888-based smartphone. Several other brands, including Black Shark, Nubia Red Magic, OPPO, Realme, LG, Vivo, iQOO and OnePlus, have confirmed that they will release their flagship Snapdragon 888 smartphones in the coming months.
Triple camera, 120Hz, 5000mAh for only $120. Introduced inexpensive smartphone ZTE Travel 30
ZTE’s range of smartphones has been replenished with the Travel 30 model. It differs from many other low-cost smartphones by using a single-chip Spreadtrum system instead of Unisoc. And yet, despite the low price, there is a fingerprint scanner and a screen with a frame rate of 120 Hz!
However, the screen resolution is small – 1600 x 720 pixels, diagonal – 6.52 inches. The display, of course, IPS – OLED is not supposed to be such cheap models. The hardware platform is based on SoC Spreadtrum SC9863A from 2018. The 28nm process, eight 1.6GHz Arm Cortex-A55 cores, a PowerVR GE8322 GPU, and an LTE Cat.7 modem are all typical of a low-cost four-year-old SoC.
The front camera is characterized by a resolution of 5 megapixels, in the main camera – sensors with a resolution of 13, 2 and 2 megapixels. The battery capacity was 5000 mAh, it supports 10 W charging. There is also a standard headphone jack, a fingerprint scanner, a face recognition function implemented in the front camera, and a voice assistant.
ZTE didn’t go for the massive amounts of flash storage currently offered by budget smartphone makers for about $100: it’s the only configuration with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of flash, and it’s priced at $120.
Perhaps this is what the new flagship smartphone HTC Viverse looks like. Renders published
The official premiere of the HTC Viverse smartphone is expected on June 28. According to preliminary data, this will be the flagship model to actively use virtual and augmented reality technologies, which, in general, is reflected in the title.
Images have been posted online that may show Viverse posing. If it is true in the pictures, then the HTC flagship will receive a rounded metal frame of the screen and a conditionally frameless display with a front camera embedded in the corner. Large circular cutout on the top edge, probably for the IR emitter.
There are no technical details about Vivierse, but since we are talking about the flagship, and even with an emphasis on virtual reality technologies, it is logical to think about using the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC as part of the hardware platform.
