Another week to go, let me guess. The MediaTek Dimensity 9200 flexed impressive muscle on AnTuTu and GFXBench, especially on the graphics front. Apple has managed to top all current chipsets, including the A16 Bionic, although cross-platform comparisons are rarely a good idea.
Xiaomi announced the Redmi Note 12 series last week and the initial sales have been very good. The four phones recorded 350,000 orders in the first flash sale, which exhausted the initial inventory.
Meanwhile, Xiaomi showed a prototype with two 1-inch sensors of the Xiaomi 12S Ultra – one is the same as the one on the 12S Ultra, complete with a lens, the other without a lens and can attach Leica M mount glass on it! It needs an adapter and makes the whole thing bulky but it’s a phone with interchangeable lenses! It’s highly unlikely that we’ll see this prototype hit the shelves – the upcoming Xiaomi 13 Pro is said to have a 1-inch sensor. Perhaps a special edition of this device would be more appropriate.
Huawei has announced the Pocket S – the cheapest foldable at CNY5,988 ($820/€830) (you can currently find the Galaxy Z Flip4 on the black market for less). The China-bound Pocket S is a water variant of the P50 Pocket with less impressive cameras and a Snapdragon 778G chipset.
Those were the key stories of the week, see below for the full list! See you next week!
