Another week in the books, so let’s recap it. Google topped the most popular stories chart with the announcement of the Pixel 5a 5G. It brings a slightly bigger screen, much bigger battery and IP67 resistance over the Pixel 4a 5G at a lower $449 price. The Pixel 5a 5G starts shipping on August 26.
The Galaxy A52s 5G was unveiled with a fast 6nm Snapdragon 778G, a 120Hz display, 4,500mAh battery, 64MP main camera with OIS and a starting price of £410. Shipments commence on September 3.
The Redmi 10 was made official with a 6.5-inch 90Hz display, a 5,000mAh battery, 50MP main camera and a starting price of just $180 for the 4/64GB model. A move up to the 4/128GB comes in at $200, while the 6/128GB is $220. The phone is already available.
The Asus ROG Phone 5s and 5s Pro have Snapdragon 888+ chipsets and a touch latency of just 24ms, which translates to a touch sampling rate of 360Hz.
Finally a word on the Galaxy S22 series, which are due in early 2022. According to popular tipster IceUniverse the Galaxy S22 will have a 6.06-inch LTPS FHD+ 120Hz display, while the S22+ will have a 6.55-inch LTPS FHD+ 120Hz one. The S22 Ultra will have a 6.81-inch LTPO QHD+ 120Hz display.
As for cameras the S22 and S22+ will have a 50MP main camera with a 1/1.55-inch sensor, 12MP ultrawide and 12MP 3x telephoto snappers. The S22 Ultra will have a 108MP main camera, 12MP ultrawide, 12MP 3x tele and 12MP 10x zoom units. Batteries are as follows S22 – 3,800mAh; S22+ – 4,600mAh; S22 Ultra -5,000mAh.
See you in a week!
The phone will become available in early September at only a few bucks more than the original A52 5G.
Based on rumors most Galaxy S22 phones will be powered by the Snapdragon 898 due to production issues with Samsung’s Exynos 2200 SoC.
Those are three firsts for the vanilla Redmi series and pretty good specs for a $180 phone (or less, depending on the region).
All three, Tab S8, S8+ and S8 Ultra, will support 45W fast charging, just like the Tab S7 generation.
