It’s the last week of 2023, and despite the holidays, the world of mobile devices has still delivered some exciting stories. The main one is that Samsung plans to launch the Galaxy S24 and S24+ at a slightly lower price than the S23, at least in Europe.
Xiaomi has already released its flagships with a HyperOS interface, and now we can see the logo that many smartphone fans will soon see on their mobile phones, wearables and even cars in the near future.
A leaked spec sheet suggests that the US and Canada will get the Qualcomm chipset.
This precedes its international deployment.
OnePlus has scheduled an event for the first days of 2024. We will see the arrival of the Ace 3 smartphone and Buds 3 TWS headphones on January 4, but the launch will take place in China. The phone will likely arrive internationally later in January as the OnePlus 12R.
It will be rebranded as OnePlus 12R for global markets.
The update is currently rolling out in some European countries.
While most countries in the Western Hemisphere were celebrating Christmas, Huawei decided to introduce the Nova 12 phones in China. They are basically the same as the nova 11 series but bring a Kirin 9000S chipset, although the company does not officially comment on the SoC.
They also have a 60 MP ultra-wide camera on the front.
They are already on pre-order.
Otherwise, it could be identical to the recently revealed A15.
The range includes the X100 and X100 Pro.
It is said to be a rebadged X50 GT.
Another launch came from iQOO, which is part of vivo. The Neo9 and Neo9 Pro arrived with a sophisticated design and a Q1 display chip that improves refresh rate and touch sampling rate, at least in theory.
We’ll have to wait and see if the phone makes it out of China to determine how much of these claims are marketing.
Both smartphones are equipped with the Q1 chip.
