Xiaomi is all set to launch the Xiaomi 13 Ultra with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and a brightest display at 2600nits. Xiaomi 13 Ultra is coming with a Sci-fi design with leather finish on the back. Xiaomi is using anti-fading and anti-bacterial leather coating on top and I like the finishing and small details they did.

The front still got a center hole punch selfie shooter, but that C7 Display by Xiaomi x China Star seems like the best in the industry. Xiaomi 13 Ultra packs a 6.72" OLED Display with LTPO Technology. There's Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 based on 4nm TSMC Process, Surge P2 and C2 Chip for better power efficiency, and Leica Color Science for best Images,

Sony IMX989 paired with Sony IMX858 will help the Xioami 13 Ultra shoot amazing Day and Night Images. Xiaomi is using variable aperture in the Main sensor with OIS on all four. Are you excited for the Xiaomi 13 Ultra?

Realme's Mini Capsule is Apple Dynamic Island Clone

Apple Dynamic Island no doubt is the best way to hide the Hideous Pill-Shape Hole, but also is attractive because of the Advanced Interactive Software Features it have. 

Realme seems to be following a similar approach with their upcoming Realme C Series Smartphone and it'll be come equipped with Dynamic Island-ish UI which Realme Calls Mini Capsule. The Teaser image confirms that it is going to show Charging Animation, similar to what we have in the Apple iPhone 14 Pro Max. 

It does look cool, but we can't ignore the fact Apple did it first and is the trend setter. 

OnePlus 11 is COMING!

It's Official! OnePlus is all set to launch the OnePlus 11 with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Chipset and YES OnePlus will be one of the first to use this Powerful Silicon. 

In Addition to that, the OnePlus 11 will have Ray-Tracing Hardware Support when playing Games or when Rendering Movies. This means fancier and better reflection in games, like for example we have rain water on road, this new tech will show more realistic colourful image by tracing a path of light. Yeah of-course this is gonna put stress on CPU, but the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 Chipset is not just powerful but power efficient too.

Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 is based on TSMC Made 4nm chip, the configuration is a main Cortex X3 + two A710, two A715 — and three "efficiency" cores. Qualcomm say the CPU is 30% powerful and 40% power efficient than the 8 Gen 1 we saw in The OnePlus 10 Pro and the GPU is 25% faster and 45% power efficient than the GPU we had in 8 Gen 1.

So overall an amazingly powerful Silicon, the Initial AntuTu Score are 1293000+, yeah ofcourse higher than the Score of Apple A16. We have seen The OnePlus 11 Design, DCS says it is coming with a hexagon shape Module with Sony IMX890 50MP Main and a High Resolution Telephoto Lens, and is going to cost less.

Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 Looks AMAZING!

So the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4 is now Official,we've come a long way, this is the first ever device with a proper In-Display Camera, Finally a device without any Notches or Punch Hole or Moving parts like Sliding Mechanism. The Official Specifications are now out, so is the design, So this is all about the Xiaomi Mi MIX 4.

Now main highlight of this device is a 6.67 inches display, this is a 1080P Panel, with Gorrila Glass Vicus on top, Display contains all elements which you can find in a Max out Flagship device, what you cannot find is the In-Display 20MP Camera, Display on top of Camera contains space in sub pixel, so that the Sensor can grab light and take some amazing shots, this along with hiding the Camera inside display... So this is an amazing solution, you can see how it hides itself.. Xiaomi says with the MIUI Camera, this can take some amazing selfei images. This is a 60 hz 90 hz 120Hz Quad Curve Display, but with a rectangular boxy finish, nothing like the XIaomi Mi 11.

Mix 4 is getting some new colors, Shadow Greenish Blue, Ceramic Grey and Ceramic White.Back Finish is quite similar to Samsung S20 Ultra, Main HMX Sensor, supports OIS, 13MP Super Wide, 8MP Telephoto lens with 5X Optical zoom with OIS. I'm not a fan of that HMX Sensor, coz it got some serious focus issues, can be seen the Camera Specificattions is not their main highlight. Here are some Camera samples, and as always they look nice.

There were some last minute changes in the Specifications, We have a 120W Fast Charging, Xiaomi claims it can go 80% in 10 mins, and in 21mins, full 100%. The Battery size is 4500mAh, not that huge, Wireless charging is tone down to 50W due to some helth laws in China,So i guess if this goes on we wont see any massive 80W or 200W fast charging ever.

Some other Specifications are IP68, Nice, Qualcomms 888+ in which Cortex-X1 has got a clock speed of 2.995GHz, there are some AI improvements too. LPDDR5 RAM and UFS 3.1 Storage.

Xiaomi have made varitey of cases official, they all look nice.

So now about the Pricing, The Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 Starts 4999 Yuan which is Insane, like I was not expecting such amazing pricing. It goes to 6299 yuan for max out variant.

OnePlus 9 to Support 8K at 30fps Video Recording

So now that we've seen the inital design of OnePlus Next Flagship, let's move to the high-end Specifications it is coming with, and looks like we have a huge improvement there. Just wanna say OnePlus is not playing games anymore, they're bringing something huge upgrades to the table this time. It's not normal upgrade, this is a huge Improvement in their

SoWe can Exclusively Confirm both the OnePlus 9 and OnePlus 9 Pro will supports 8K Video Recording at 30fps. Right now no OnePlus Smartphones supports 8K at 30fps, even the Galaxy S20 series supports 8K at 24fps. Only a very few smartphones supports 8K at 30Fps right now. The Current Chipset 865 and upcoming CPU 875 5G do supports 8K at 30Fps, but the Camera sensor OnePlus is using right now the IMX586 is not capable of 8K video recording, even the IMX689 there's no confirmation if it can record 8K at 30Fps.

OFFICIALLY we've a few sensors which can do 8k at 30Fps and those are, Samsung's 108MP, The GW2 64MP, Omnivision OV48C which is there in the Mi 10 Ultra, and the Upcoming IMX 786 may support 8K at 30fps.There are some sensors and phones which upscales 4k or 6k, and make them 8k, but there are only a few which actually supports 8k at 30fps. No information on which sensor OnePlus is goonna use, but this do mean we're indeed getting a new and better Sensor which can do 8k at 30Fps with High Dynamic Range On.

Google expected to sell only 800K units of Pixel 5 in 2020

The Google's Pixel 5 and Pixel 4A XL are on it's way and this year Google is targeting a wide range of Audience by Lowering down the Price and ofcourse Lowering down the Specifications. Unlike the Pixel 4, Pixel 3, Pixel 2 XL or the OG Pixel Phone, the Pixel 5 is a Mid-range Smartphone with some Flagship Features.

Google is looking to produce only around 800K units of the Pixel 5 in 2020. Google is expected to ship 3 million units if we combine the Pixel 5, Pixel 4a 5G, and Pixel 4a together. This year, the top selling phones were Galaxy A51 and iPhone 11, so Google with Pixel 4A and Pixel 5 can easily surpass most phones.

"Google gave a relatively conservative order forecast this year because its flagship Pixel 4 did not sell well last year, and because COVID-19 is causing their team to stay on the safe side concerning handsets for now."

FYI, Google sold 7.2 million Pixel Smartphones last year, but this year due to Covid-19, All the Tech Giants including Google got affected, so shipping 3M Units of New Phones in 2020 is not bad at all. 



OnePlus finally revealed that the OnePlus 8T is real and is Coming Officially next month. They're also throwing a Contest where users can Win a brand new OnePlus 8T or Discount on OnePlus Devices just by Clicking on "Notify Me" for the OnePlus 8T News.

OnePlus also released a Trailer Teaser with Brand Ambassador Rober Downey Jr. (also known as RDJ) to promote the upcoming OnePlus 8T 5G Smartphone. Sadly this also confirms there's no OnePlus 8T Pro this year.

We saw the Design of OnePlus 8T a few days back and it's coming with Samsung Galaxy S20 Like Camera module with 48MP likely IMX689. OnePlus will be using 65W SuperWarp Charging, 120Hz FHD+ Display, and Snapdagon 865+ CPU.

So the launch event Kicks 14th October and we're also expecting New OnePlus Nord Devices with OnePlus Buds Z and finally OnePlus Watch. 

Sorry, Android. Google Widget on iPhone is Cool

So Google just made this Cool new Widget Available for iPhones running iOS 14. Apple iOS 14 finally comes with an Option where you can place Widgets inbetween your Applications and that's Something Android has been doing for years, but you know, when Apple do it, it's Cool.

This new Search Widget looks really nice and is available in different sizes for iOS 14. It Got a Search Bar, Lens, Voice Search and Incognito Option right there. Sadly it's not available for Google's own Android, Google likely want it to be iOS Exclusive.

This is not the first time we're seeing something like that from Google's side, Google got a sweet spot for iOS. Motion Stills, Photovine and there are many Cool Google Applications first came to iOS and then made their way to Android.

As an Android user, this makes me feel like Google loves iOS more than Android. Not Cool Google.

This is the Google Pixel 5

Despite of having a Not-So-Premium Plastic Body, Single Camera, and a Small Battery, the Pixel 4A is a huge success, and that's because Google nailed it with the Pricing and Camera.

With the Pixel 5, Google is planning to follow same approach, that's a Plastic Body with Rear-Fingerprint Scanner, and Dual Cameras on Back. Google is using Snapdragon 765 5G CPU in this one.

Basically, it can be seen, Google is mainly focusing on two things, that's Android Software and Camera. There's also a lot Cheaper Google Pixel 4A 5G Coming in with nearly same Specs like Pixel 5 but downgrade Design.

This year there's no Flagship Pixel device like with Higher-Refresh rate, or Higher Megapixels count, or Snapdragon 865 CPU, or IP68 Rating. Main focus is again on Camera, which are unbeatable and Software.
