While my phone with glass has survived many accidents.

Plastic scratches easily on table and if it falls.

- Many midranges can record 4K. But quality is inferior from what you get from the 2015 flagships. Software will never have get treatment given to expensive phone. Also the simple CPUs have weaker ISP.

- Most of midranges CPUs do not support mmWave 5G. Almost all can use just ddr4x ram and ufs2.2. Most have usb 2.0/2.1 ..

- rate to see midranges with gorilla 6. Many still have gorilla 5 or 3 and plastic back.

Flagship 2019 is still better than any 2021 midrange.

Leica, T *, Olympus everything is marketing for renderings that have nothing to do with reality

Now their focus is medical equipament.
Cameras shall still carry name Olympus, but no longer related.

Yeah, but anyway, with punch hole and/or curved edge display it will just be another overused design that isn't worth anything...

Midrangers beat flagships in

Battery life
Thermals/sustained performance
Durability (plastic builds won't break like glass)
Repairability

Midrangers still also have more optional features in the headphone jack, and micro SD expansion(not all but more of this is in the midrange Vs flagships)

The ultra series is super needed though. Phone cameras on non camera phones suck .

It may be that Xiaomi finally begins to have a more realistic photographic processing on their phones. . .

Finally
I was thinking about the same idea after I saw Samsung X Olympus but I don't know what happened to that
First Samsung stopped using 200Mp sensor
than S22 ultra changed to rebranded S21 ultra

We don't need flagship phones anymore. Midrange ones are already powerful for most tasks. Unless you are a heavy gamer or want to show off just save your extra money and buy a decent midrange phone. You will get better battery life as well.

These tie ins are all marketing gimmicks. You see nothing in the actual images to suggest anything special.
