Xiaomi has pleased buyers in China with big discounts dedicated to the local New Year. A large number of smartphones fell in price at once, while the list includes even the latest sub-flagship Xiaomi 12X, presented in China at the end of December along with Xiaomi 12 and Xiaomi 12 Pro. This is the first price reduction of Xiaomi 12X: the version with 8 GB of RAM and 128 GB of flash memory has fallen in price by $50. Recall that the cost of this smartphone at the time of the announcement was $ 500, now you can buy it on JD.com for the equivalent of $ 450.
Along with the latest Xiaomi 12X, other models are also getting cheaper. For example, Xiaomi 11 Ultra Extreme in the version with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of flash memory became more affordable for $ 60 ($ 800), Redmi Note 9 Pro 5G with 8 GB of RAM and 256 GB of flash memory can be bought for exactly $ 200 ( minus $15), and the flagship Mix 4 fell in price by $140 at once (to $565). Also on the discount are Redmi K40, Redmi K40 Game Enhanced Edition, Xiaomi 11 and 11 Pro, Xiaomi Mi 10S.
Sony has outlined its immediate plans for the game for PC and mobile platforms.
CEO Jim Ryan said that Sony plans to have half of the games created by its internal studios in fiscal year 2025, including on PC and smartphones.
That is, only 50% of the games will remain exclusive, while the rest will be available to a much larger number of gamers. This is similar to Phil Spencer’s position on the Xbox.
From the chart, you can see that the share of PCs will still be higher than the share of smartphones, which should please gamers who prefer large single-player games. The share of Sony games on smartphones is now about 10%, and in three years it should double. In the case of the PC, there is no exact data, but the share of such projects will not grow so significantly.
Most likely, the big story games for the most part, as now, will be released only on the PlayStation, and will migrate to the PC years later. What kind of games will be released on PC and smartphones? Judging by Ryan’s statement, including game-services. It turns out that Sony is now working on 12 such projects at once. According to the head of PlayStation, if at least some of these projects become successful, it will greatly transform the company’s business structure.
Historically, PlayStation Studios has done an excellent job of building a vast portfolio of single-player games with rich storytelling and beautiful graphics, but we’ve certainly limited ourselves to a fairly narrow section of the gaming market.
By expanding into PCs and mobile devices, and, it must be said, into online services, we have the opportunity to move from a very narrow segment of the overall gaming software market to a presence almost everywhere.
For example, I would say that if we manage to make some of the 12 service games that we develop at PlayStation Studios… if only some of them are commercially successful, then the impact of this will completely transform our business structure over time.
Given the success of Sony games on PC, it’s no surprise that the share of such games will continue to grow. As for the mobile segment, it has long occupied more than half of the entire gaming industry in terms of money. By the way, we recall that the first of the PlayStation 5 exclusives may soon be released on the PC.
Oppo introduced the A57 4G smartphone. To recall, the A57 5G version debuted in April with a price tag of $235.
The new version costs $ 160, of course, in many respects inferior to the older one, but not in everything. For example, the same battery with a capacity of 5000 mAh is installed here, only the older version has a 10-watt charge, while the younger one has a very decent 33-watt charge for this segment.
In almost all other respects, smartphones are identical, except that the new version has a screen with support for only 60 Hz. At the same time, this is the same IPS panel with a diagonal of 6.56 inches with HD + resolution.
The smartphone has the same 13 MP camera, the same design, the same Android 12 out of the box. Another difference is that the $235 A57 5G offers 8GB of RAM and 128GB of flash, while the A57 4G only has 3GB of RAM and 64GB of flash.
Samsung unveils the Galaxy M23 5G smartphone with a price tag of over $400, but don’t worry about the price
Samsung quietly launched another smartphone on the market – the Galaxy M23 5G.
So far, the novelty is presented only in Brazil, so its price of $ 415 should not scare potential buyers in other countries. Due to the nature of taxation in Brazil, electronics are very expensive there. For example, the Galaxy S22 Ultra costs over $1,800 there.
Thus, we are now most interested in the parameters. In particular, the Snapdragon 750G platform is at the core, which will delight fans of Qualcomm’s SoCs.
Also, the device received 6 GB of RAM, the company does not disclose the amount of flash memory. The novelty offers a 120-Hz display with a diagonal of 6.6 inches, a main camera with a resolution of 50 megapixels and a 5000 mAh battery with 25-watt charging. As a result, the Galaxy M23 5G is very similar to the Galaxy A23, but the novelty has 5G support, a slightly more productive platform and a higher screen frequency.
