Week 35 in review: Samsung’s 200MP HP1 official, vivo X70 series incoming
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!
There are going to be four shooters, one of them with a periscope lens.
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.
Richard Yu has revealed 8 users per second are upgrading the OS on their Huawei.
The HP1 will likely be the imager of choice for the Galaxy S22 Ultra.
5G users in China are now nearly 400 million.
It remains to be seen just how this feature will be implemented.
The manual contradicts a prior Chinese certification document.
Will roll-out gradually to eligible Windows 10 PCs.
50MP main, 48MP ultrawide and two telephoto cameras will sit on the back.
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.
The Neo2 will have the biggest display in the GT family and the biggest battery too (5,000 mAh).
Both smartphones will come with the Dynamic RAM Expansion (DRE) feature.
The design of the camera looks a lot like the Mi 11.
The Plus model is down 300mAh compared to the S21+, the Ultra matches its predecessor.
The new A-series midranger is already up for grabs from Samsung and partner retailers.
Microsoft will bring Android apps to Insider users in the following months, though.
They are the Meizu 18 and 18 Pro with a Snapdragon 888+ chipset.
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 phone will keep the X20 design and arrive with a 6,000 mAh battery.
Pre-orders are apparently set to start on October 19.
Realme and MediaTek India confirmed the news in a couple of tweets.
The design matches the 3D renders from a few days ago. Notably, it lacks the “cloud window”, which is exclusive to the Pro+ model.
The 6/128 GB smartphone will cost INR35,999 ($485/€415).
