It’s been a busy week last week, with Samsung announcing the highly anticipated Galaxy S21 FE, some Chinese launches, and the commotion around CES 2022. This week’s series of announcements from Monday, Honor and Xiaomi kept the pace.
Arguably the highlight of the week was the launch of the OnePlus 10 Pro in China. The rumors turned out to be true, so with the new design, the next OnePlus comes with an LTPO 2.0 screen, a second-gen Hasselblad camera setup, 80W charging, and of course, a Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 SoC.
The Honor Magic V was another big announcement this week. Not only is it the company’s first foldable phone, but it’s also the world’s first foldable phone powered by Snapdragon 8 Gen 1. Sadly, the company still hasn’t decided whether to offer the phone outside of China.
Speaking of foldable devices, Oppo’s Find N is facing a shortage, with more than 1 million people signing up to sell it. Interest in the segment is clearly growing as detailed Motorola Razr 3 specs leaks have sparked some serious interest.
The realme 9i also debuted as the first member of the 9 series. It runs on the Snapdragon 680 and offers a respectable 5,000mAh battery with 33W fast charging.
Apple fans are also getting something as the company releases iOS 15.2.1 and iPadOS 15.2.1, and we’re seeing more reports that the iPhone 14 Pro will feature a 48MP main camera.
