On March 29, the global announcement of new Xiaomi products will take place, and this day is definitely worth adding to the calendar, because the company will present not one, but two flagship smartphones at once – Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra. Recently, everything pointed to the release of the first and nothing to the premiere of the second. But now both the one and the other model have received official confirmation. And both have been named contenders for the title of “King of Android Smartphones.” In general, the company has never skimped on bright epithets for its models.
Xiaomi has published several teasers today. One of them shows the packaging of the Mi 11 Pro – and it looks the same as the packaging of the regular Mi 11. This testifies in favor of the absence of a proprietary charging inside, although rumors said that a 67W power supply would still be included in the kit. According to the 3C regulator, the Mi 11 Pro supports both wired and 67W wireless charging. The wired charging power of the Mi 11 Ultra will be 120 watts.
Finally, the third teaser talks about the start of pre-orders for the Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra in China. Closer to the official presentation, we will find out the volume of pre-orders, but already now you can imagine that it will be very large, despite the cost of new products.
By and large, Mi 11 Pro and Mi 11 Ultra are one and the same model with minor differences. And the main thing is concentrated in the area of the main camera. So, the Mi 11 Pro is assigned sensors with a resolution of 50 Mp (main, Samsung GN2), 20 Mp (with an ultra-wide-angle lens), 8 Mp (in a periscope module with a smooth optical zoom). The Mi 11 Pro has more interesting sensors: the main one is the same Samsung GN2 with a resolution of 50 megapixels, but it is complemented by a 48-megapixel Sony IMX586 sensor in combination with an ultra-wide-angle lens and another one of the same as part of the periscope module. The main camera block of Mi 11 Ultra will have an additional screen.
Both smartphones will receive curved displays Samsung AMOLED E4 with a diagonal of 6.81 inches with a resolution of 3200 x 1400 pixels, SoC Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, batteries with a capacity of about 5000 mAh.
Xiaomi is preparing a super-cheap Redmi A1 smartphone, and it will be a global model
Xiaomi will launch a very affordable smartphone under the Redmi brand. The novelty will be called Redmi A1, and it has already appeared in the databases of various regulators and industry groups (IMEI, FCC, TUV Rheinland), as well as in the Geekbench 5 database. Thanks to this, there are already some technical details about the device.
Redmi A1 has part numbers 220733SL, 220733SG and 220733SPI – these nomenclature differences indicate that the device will be sold in different countries and regions. Based on Geekbench data, the Redmi A1 is powered by a MediaTek Helio A22 SoC with a quad-core processor, 3GB of RAM, and runs Android 12. According to the FCC database, the Redmi A1 is 164.67mm long and 75mm wide. .56 mm.
There is speculation that Redmi A1 will be released under another Xiaomi brand – Poco. It’s just not yet clear when the official premiere of the novelty will take place.
Folding smartphone Xiaomi Mix Fold has fallen in price in China to the level of Xiaomi 12S Ultra
Xiaomi has launched the next generation of its foldable smartphone, the Xiaomi Mix Fold 2. Pre-orders have already begun to be accepted in China. Meanwhile, the first generation of Xiaomi Mix Fold has fallen in price to a record level.
Xiaomi Mix Fold 2 is priced starting at $1,335. The first generation is now available in China for $1,038 with 12GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. For so much, the device is now offered on the JD.com site. At the same price, you can buy a flagship, but standard Xiaomi 12S Ultra smartphone in the maximum configuration.
Recall, Xiaomi Mix Fold debuted in the spring of 2021. Features include an 8.01-inch 2480 x 1860 pixel flexible AMOLED panel, a 6.52-inch 2520 x 840-pixel AMOLED external screen, a triple rear camera (108, 13 and 8 MP), Qualcomm Snapdragon 888, LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 flash memory, NFC, Wi-Fi 6E and Bluetooth 5.2, two rechargeable batteries with a total capacity of 5020 mAh with support for 67 W charging.
Still, this is not the reason for the rise in price: the iPhone 14 Pro will receive at least 128 GB of permanent memory, despite the price increase
The network has new data about future models of the iPhone 14 Pro. It is reported that the new items will receive in the minimum configuration only 128 GB of permanent memory, although earlier it was said about a minimum of 256 GB. However, prices will be higher.
Haitong International analyst Jeff Pu suggests that the iPhone 14 Pro/Pro Max models will still have the same storage capacity as the iPhone 13 Pro/Pro Max. That is, we are talking about options for 128 GB, 256 GB, 512 GB and 1 TB.
Apple plans to assemble 91 million iPhone 14s in the second half of 2022, which is more than the iPhone 13 assembly in the same period last year. Then the company was able to collect 84 million pieces.
And Ming-Chi Kuo said that the iPhone 14 Pro models will be more expensive. The iPhone 14 Pro is rumored to be priced at $1,099 and the iPhone 14 Pro Max will cost $1,199, although this has yet to be officially confirmed.
As for the older models of smartphones, they are credited with cutouts instead of “monobrows”, A16 processors and a new purple color. Perhaps the increase in prices will be affected just by the use of a more powerful and expensive processor, as well as RAM.
Apple augmented reality glasses are expected to appear in 2024. Jeff Pu believes that they will appear at the end of 2024.
