Xiaomi dominated the tech world’s attention this week with devices set for announcement on November 5 next week.
One of the week’s biggest stories was a video of Xiaomi’s upcoming Mi Watch. It’s an Apple Watch-esque device that will bring the Snapdragon Wear 3100 SoC, GPS, NFC for payments, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and eSIM. Xiaomi also has a Mi TV ready for the event.
The other huge story is the Xiaomi Mi CC9 Pro, which will be globally known as the Mi Note 10. The device will be announced on November 5, will have 5 cameras (including the 108MP unit meant for the Galaxy S11 and a 5x optical zoom snapper) and 30W fast charging. The Mi Note 10 will get its own event on November 14.
Apple finally unveiled the AirPods Pro – they bring active noise cancellation, better sound quality and new design along with a heftier $249/€289 price. The other Apple-related story of the week concerns next year’s iPhones, which are supposed to come with 120Hz ProMotion OLED screens and 5G.
A new leak suggested that the Samsung Galaxy S11 will come with the Exynos 9830 or Snapdragon 865 with support for LPDDR5 RAM. Meanwhile the Galaxy S10 Lite is nearing announcement, as evidenced by its visit to the Geekbench database.
Samsung showed off its One UI 2.0 in a video, detailing its new, more minimal design, and new features. Samsung also showed off its next foldable design – a clamshell one.
Speaking of clamshells, the first images of Motorola’s razr foldable surfaced – it looks very much like the RAZR flip phone of old. Rumor has it the RAZR foldable is due on November 13 with a price of $1,500.
Those are the biggest stories of the past week. See you next one!
Features in-ear design, active noise cancellation, water-resistance, wireless charging, and audio sharing.
For once “pro” means “pro”. This is a rugged phone aimed at professionals with support FirstNet and push-to-talk.
It posted teaser photos showing the camera going from 1x to 10x along with a video of the camera interface.
The wearable looks a lot like the Apple Watch; the Mi TV 5 a 4K quantum dot screen and NTSC color gamut of 108%.
