The top story this week showed us the first images of the OnePlus 10 Pro, which are based on a prototype of the device. We only really see the rear of the phone and there are a few things to note – there are three cameras, none of which is a periscope, and the camera island doesn’t seem to protrude from the panel. The OnePlus 10 Pro should arrive in early 2022.
Another phone that got its images exposed was the Galaxy A53 5G. It looks like its predecessors and the only external change appears to be the removal of the 3.5mm audio jack. The A53 will be available in Black, White, Light Blue, and Orange, according to recent leaks, and will launch in the first three months of next year.
The Poco M4 Pro 5G arrived with a Dimensity 810, 33W charging for its 5,000mAh battery, and a 6.6-inch 90Hz IPS LCD. On the camera front, it carries a 50MP main camera and an 8MP ultrawide. The Poco M4 Pro 5G will be available globally on 11.11 (singles day). The base version will start at €230.
Microsoft brought the Surface Laptop SE, which is a $249 no-frills laptop meant for K-8 classrooms. The laptop is running a toned-down variant of Windows, called Windows 11 SE. The combination is a direct competitor to Google’s Chromebook and it arrives in early 2022.
The Samsung Galaxy S21 FE will reportedly be official on January 4 and on sale on January 11. It will run an Exynos 2100 with 8GB of RAM at the base.
Those were the key stories of the week. See you next one!
Samsung will change up the curvatures of some design elements, but the main formula for the A5x series remains unchanged.
The phone also has a slightly larger 6.6″ display compared to the M3 Pro 5G. The major camera improvement is the addition of an 8 MP ultra-wide.
The successor to the Poco M3 Pro 5G launched six months ago has arrived at our office for full review.
Several users report this issue, but the good news is that it’s not permanent – the bad news is that fixing it is a hassle.
An ambitious attempt from a company known for its value-for-money phones, the Zero X Pro has big display, battery and especially camera ambitions.
The result is much better than the first outing with the vivo phone, but may still not be representative of the performance of the finalized hardware.
And the vanilla model a Dimensity 900. All three will have 90Hz displays and 4,500mAh batteries. But some of the leaks contradict each other.
