Week 50 in review: Oppo Find N official, Galaxy S22 live photo emerges
Welcome to another week's recap. The biggest story of the week was the arrival of the Oppo Find N. It has a much smaller footprint than the Galaxy Z Fold3. Outside, the Find N has a 5.49-inch 18:9 display - a standard aspect and an easier one to use, compared to the Fold3's 25:9 outer screen. On the inside, the Find N has a 7.1-inch 8.4:9 main screen, which is only slightly narrower than a square.
The Oppo Find N sold out in China, and the maker is as of now not planning to make it available outside.
We saw an alleged live image of the Galaxy S22, while the Ultra received FCC certification. Also, according to renowned insider @UniverseIce, the Galaxy S22 Ultra captures much nicer images than its predecessor, thanks to better image processing.
The Galaxy S22 series is coming next month. Three support pages for the three devices were uncovered on Samsung's website, confirming the model names - SM-S901U, SM-S906U, and SM-S908U.
The Xiaomi 12 series might arrive in 2021 still. Leaked renders gave us a look at the Xiaomi 12 Ultra and its camera-packed rear panel. It shows four cameras - using the power of deduction we can expect the main one, an ultrawide, a periscope zoom, which leaves the fourth to be either a shorter or longer zoom, or a depth-sensing unit. What's interesting is the Leica logo on the renders of the 12 Ultra - it will be interesting what the famous German company does to better the Xiaomi 12 Ultra's cameras.
That's it for this week. Only two left to go until 2022!
The 3D model is based on a bunch of cases, spotted earlier.
An S Pen is also certified by the FCC.
Oppo went for a smaller device and picked a sane 18:9 aspect ratio for the external display (the internal one is 8.4:9).
The new OS version is expected to arrive on December 28 alongside the new Xiaomi 12 phone.
There are no official scores for the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, but its expected performance is slightly below that of the Dimensity.
The vanilla V23 will arrive at a later stage.
The SM-S901U, S906U and S908U are the US versions of the Galaxy S22, S22+ and S22 Ultra/Note, respectively.
It's expected to go official sometime in Q1 2022.
We still don't know what the fourth sensor is for.
Realme GT 2 Pro will introduce three world's firsts on December 20, including innovative build material
The company will unveil its first Snapdragon 8 Gen 1-powered smartphone next week.
One of the few remaining pieces of the puzzle.
It weighs 30g, runs on the Snapdragon Wear 4100 platform and has a micro-LED projector built-in.
This tablet has been designed for entertainment, light work and a modest budget.
The fancy camera tech should trickle down to an Oppo phone eventually.
The vegan leather options look quite interesting.
That is small relative to the 6.81" slab that was the Mi 11.
The phone will have an 80W fast wired charging, 32 MP selfie camera.
It should boast a 12.6-inch AMOLED panel.
The phone will have three cameras and a tiny circular display on the front.
Netflix subscriptions in India previously started at INR199/month and went up to INR799/month.
We don't expect big changes design-wise, it seems.
It's coming to a cheap phone near you in 2022.
