Hello to another week’s recap. The vivo X70 series are coming on September 9 and the flagship of the lot – the X70 Pro+, will have a 50MP 1/1.31-inch ISOCELL GN1 main camera, a 5x 8MP periscope unit, 48MP ultrawide snapper and Zeiss T* lenses all over. We expect the chip of choice to be the Snapdragon 888+.
Samsung unveiled two ISOCELL sensors this week – the 50MP GN5 with 1.0μm pixels and improved all-directional autofocus – and the flagship 200MP HP1 that will be featured in the Galaxy S22 Ultra. It can output in 200MP, 50MP and 12.5MP, the latter with the biggest 2.56μm pixel pitch, and shoot 8K video.
According to a tipster, the Xiaomi 12 will feature a triple 50MP camera with a 5x periscope – that’s three cameras, all with 50MP sensors – nice!
Samsung’s Galaxy S22+ will have a 4,500mAh battery, while the Galaxy S22 Ultra will retain the 5,000mAh unit – neither is going to ship with a charger, though.
Those were the key stories, but you can find the full list below. See you in a week!
The Mi 11 Ultra is already close to that with a 50+48+48 MP camera and a 5x periscope. The next ultra will probably have a 200 MP camera, though.
The 5G models are getting the most attention, though some countries will get the Reno6 (4G) as well. There’s no sign of the Reno6 Pro+, however.
The phone should launch under the “Xiaomi Note 11” name globally. Rumor has it that it will be powered by a Snapdragon 778G or 780G.
Following a recent report that the iPhone 13 will support a satellite connection, a new report suggests this may be solely for emergencies.
Users in South Korea are the first invited to the beta test, but users from other regions should be able to join soon.
The design matches the 3D renders from a few days ago. Notably, it lacks the “cloud window”, which is exclusive to the Pro+ model.
