Realme has set its sights on creating an impact in the smartphone market with its newly introduced line-up, while other tech powerhouses such as OnePlus are expected to unveil their latest devices as well. Realme leads the pack, while Motorola teased two potential additions to its innovative foldable lineup and iQOO has confirmed their debut of an innovative device in July. Stay tuned as these tech titans reinvent smartphone technology in unique ways!

Noting Phone 2

Carl Pei of Nothing has officially confirmed that their forthcoming phone will utilize Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, widely acclaimed as an “elite tier powerhouse.” According to Carl, applications launch twice as promptly as they did with Phone (1) due to this chip.

The Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 provides improvements in battery life, connectivity and beyond for Phone (2) users. In addition, its Snapdragon Sigh (an 18-bit ISP included in its design) facilitates state-of-the-art camera features such as Raw HDR recording at 60 frames per second as well as 4K/60 video recording capabilities.

Pei announced at Mobile World Congress in February 2023 that Nothing’s Phone (2) would feature a Snapdragon 8 series processor from the previous year – though no longer considered its flagship chip, its 8+ Gen 1 still provides superior performance at an extremely reduced cost, giving Nothing an affordable yet robust phone solution.

Phone (1) employed a Qualcomm Snapdragon 778G+ processor, an impressive mid-range chip. But its power fell significantly short of that of Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. Interestingly, its dual 50Mp primary and ultrawide cameras were quite impressive; unfortunately, however, computation software couldn’t fully optimize optics performance.

Pei indicated that software upgrades for new models is a top priority of his company, similar to what Google does when they update sensors across generations of Pixel phones while improving software to increase efficiency.

One major drawback of the Phone (1) was its relatively short battery life; even with its standard 4500mAh capacity, its lifespan quickly declined when active display use took place. To address this, software updates and potential battery upgrades may help improve this aspect of its performance in future phones.

Pei recently confirmed to Forbes in an interview that the Phone (2) would boast a larger 4,700mAh battery, contradicting MySmartPrice’s claim of 5,000mAh.

MySmartPrice’s report speculates on some possible specifications of this new device. These could include a Snapdragon 8-series processor, 12GB of RAM (including virtual RAM), 256GB storage, and a 120Hz AMOLED display.

The Phone (2) will feature an adaptive AMOLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate. Additional anticipated specifications for the Phone 2 include up to 12GB of RAM – including virtual RAM features common among Xiaomi, Samsung and Realme smartphones – and up to 256GB of internal storage.

Camera configuration remains in flux; with OnePlus considering either sticking with their proven 50MP dual rear cameras or transitioning to triple rear cams. London-based OnePlus also emphasizes software upgrades after creating an in-house team to focus on them after releasing Phone 1. This team includes engineers from their software team in order to provide users with an enhanced Android experience.

The release date is yet to be confirmed but is expected in July 2023, possibly on July 12, the anniversary of the Phone (1) launch. The device is confirmed to launch concurrently in India, Europe, and the US.

Realme 11 Series

Realme has officially unveiled their anticipated 11 series in China, unveiling three 5G smartphones: Realme 11, 11 Pro and the standout 11 Pro+. These smartphones represent an upgrade over last year’s Realme 10 series and bring with them notable enhancements in performance and features.

It is offered in two models: 12GB + 256GB and 12GB + 512GB, both with up to 1TB expandable internal storage via a microSD card slot. Out of the box, the smartphone runs on the Android 13-based Realme UI 4.0 custom skin.

The device is powered by a substantial 5000mAh battery, with support for 100W fast charging for the Pro+ model and 67W for the Pro model. This allows for full battery replenishment in just 26 minutes(100W). Connectivity options on the Realme 11 Pro+ include 5G, 4G LTE, Bluetooth, GPS, and a USB Type-C port for charging and data transfer. Other notable features include Dolby Atmos support, Hi-Res audio, and X-axis Linear Motor.
