The last few days of April brought several new phones, most of them coming from one company – Xiaomi. It introduced two new additions to its Mi brand and another one from the Redmi family, while another was finally launched on the global scene.
The Xiaomi Mi 10 Youth was revealed in China with a periscope camera and 5x optical zoom, making it the first device by the company with the feature. Later through a Qualcomm press message, we learned its name will actually be Xiaomi Mi 10 Lite Zoom on the global scene.
Alongside it, the company unveiled MIUI 12, which will power most of the company’s phones in the second half of the year.
The Xiaomi Mi Note 10 Lite is another smartphone that saw the light of day – it has four cameras, one of them being 64 MP, neat OLED display and a low price tag of 349 or 399 – depending on the storage that you want to accompany the 6 GB RAM.
The iPhone 12 rumors are starting to intensify – this week we heard the lineup will include four phones and all of them will have 5G support. More excitingly, a rumor suggested that this won’t lead to higher prices as was the case with some Android competitors.
LG revealed its Velvet phone will have a 48 MP main camera, a Snapdragon 765G chipset, and an OLED screen. The phone will be all about functionality and looks, and we hope this will try to pull the Korean company out of the pit its mobile division has fallen in.
Meanwhile, Sony Mobile online stores in Europe have closed, instead the official site redirects you to local retailers.
Eye AF for humans and animals, 20fps continuous shooting with AE/AF enabled and a ZEISS lens with T* coating are just the tip of the iceberg.
