Mobile phones are becoming increasingly important to our day-to-day lives, and with so many models out there, it’s hard to know which to choose. Here we explore some of the upcoming models, including the Google Pixel 5, the iPhone 13 Pro Max, and the Samsung Galaxy S23. We also take a look at Sony’s bravia TV division and Motorola’s X30 range.
Samsung Galaxy S23 series
Samsung is expected to introduce a new flagship phone called the Galaxy S23 in 2023. The device is supposed to be a significant improvement over its predecessors. Unlike previous models, this one will be a bit bigger and have a few more features.
The Samsung S23 will have a 6.1-inch display and a resolution of 2340 x 1080. It will also feature 8GB of RAM. Hopefully, it will also come with the latest version of Samsung’s Universal Flash Storage (UFS) solution.
Samsung is expected to release three main models in the Galaxy S23 series. These will be the regular S23, the Plus, and the Ultra. Each model will have a different design, but the frame and screen size should be about the same.
The Galaxy S23 is expected to come with an upgraded processor and better battery life. The Plus model is expected to have a 4700 mAh battery, which is up from the 4500 mAh of the Galaxy S22 Plus.
A tipster claims the Galaxy S23 will feature a 6.1-inch screen. This is in line with the size of the Galaxy S21 and the Galaxy S22. In addition, it has been rumored that the base model will get a smaller bump in battery capacity.
Although there have been no official leaks of the Galaxy S23, Samsung is likely to have its hands on a prototype. It is also tipped to have a new bespoke processor.
Apple iPhone 13 Pro Max
The Apple iPhone 13 Pro is the company’s most advanced smartphone to date. It features an A15 Bionic chip and a 6.7-inch OLED display. These improvements enable the phone to deliver faster performance, better battery life, and a more cohesive experience.
iPhone 13 Pro models come with a textured matte glass back. They also feature dual eSIM support, which allows users to have two phone numbers. This feature is powered by an eSIM, which is available in many countries around the world.
In addition to the eSIM, the iPhone 13 models also include a nano-SIM slot. This slot is located on the left side of the device. You can use this SIM slot to make FaceTime calls, though you can switch to LTE if you want to.
One of the most impressive aspects of the new iPhone is its camera. It’s got a 77-mm Telephoto camera with a 6x optical zoom range. Another lens is a 13mm six-element f/1.8 Ultra Wide.
The TrueDepth camera system includes a 12-megapixel f/2.2 camera for the front-facing selfie shooter. It has a 2.2x wider aperture than the iPhone X’s sensor, allowing it to capture a greater amount of light.
The A15 Bionic chip has four high-efficiency cores that deliver up to 50% better performance than the previous generation. Along with the new CPU, the phone has a five-core GPU that’s ideal for gaming and video apps.
Google Pixel 5
Google Pixel 5 mobile phones are one of the best mobile phones on the market today. In fact, the latest model has a couple of features which you won’t find on any other smartphone.
The first is the Conversations feature, which enables you to collect messages from various apps. It also allows you to control smart home gadgets from your phone.
For the camera, the Pixel 5 packs an ultrawide lens and an eight-megapixel fixed-focus camera. As well as capturing the right hues, the Pixel 5 can record 4K video at 60 frames per second.
The Google Pixel 5 also has a solid battery life. At the time of launch, it had a respectable 128GB internal storage, which should be enough to get you through a day.
The textured “bio resin” coating on the volume rocker adds a nice reassuring feel. And the display is quite impressive.
The Pixel 5 also has a physical fingerprint sensor. This makes it easier to use than the in-screen scanner found on previous models.
The Pixel 5 has a 6.0-inch FHD+ OLED screen. While it’s not the largest display you’ll see on a phone, it’s still more than adequate for what it does.
Another thing is the Android 11 operating system which is currently available on the device. Google claims that the latest version of the OS is the purest version of Android yet.
Nokia is one of the leading mobile companies worldwide. It specializes in telecommunications, consumer electronics, and information technology. Their mobile phones are known for their quality and affordability.
There are many new Nokia mobile phones to look out for in the coming months. These devices will feature augmented reality, facial recognition, and AI. They will also run on Android 7.0 or later, ensuring that they’ll be updated with the latest versions.
The Nokia X30 is expected to be one of the top mobile phones of 2023. It has a solid build, excellent cameras, and a three-year warranty. This phone is an improvement over the previous X20 model.
Another new Nokia smartphone will launch soon, and it’s called the Nokia Turbo Pro. This mobile will have a massive battery, quad camera system, and more. In fact, the specifications are leaking out.
Meanwhile, the Nokia Lumia 920 is a smartphone with an under-display fingerprint scanner and a very unique camera. It features a 32 MP front camera, a 64-megapixel rear camera, and a super AMOLED full touch screen display. However, it’s unclear if it will be available in your neighborhood mobile market.
Nokia is releasing a flagship handset next year, and it’s likely to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 898+ 5G CPU. It’ll also include two SIM cards for support on HSPA+, GSM, and LTE networks.
While it may not have the best cameras or the fastest CPU, the Nokia XR20 offers an easy to use Android experience, and it has a great battery life.
Motorola’s X30 range
Motorola has been making headlines in the past month with the release of several new handsets. Besides the usual suspects in the mid-range and budget categories, the company is also active in the high-end market. In the coming months, we can expect to see the launch of a pair of impressive flagship terminals.
First up, we have the Moto Edge X30. It comes with an under-display camera, dual SIM cards, a large 6.7-inch P-OLED panel, stereo speakers, and a USB-C port. It is expected to cost CNY3,199, which is a bit more than the entry-level Moto G5.
The Moto X30 is also said to be the first phone to have a hologram display. This will allow the phone to perform a number of cool tricks including a low blue light filter, HDR10+ compatibility, and variable refresh rates.
The Moto X30 also sports a “familiar” design. It is rumored to have a pOLED display with a higher refresh rate than the regular display.
Motorola has also shown off the Moto X30’s gaming capabilities. In addition to the regular X30, a special edition model is also available. With this version, you will be able to play a game using ThinkReality A3 AR glasses.
Another big hitter is the under-display front-camera. While it is not clear how much resolution this particular sensor will have, the smallest pixel size is a 2.56 micron.
Sony’s bravia TV division
In recent years, Sony’s television division has struggled. The company has been in serious financial trouble, losing a staggering $913 million in the last four quarters. Its long-term credit rating was downgraded by Moody’s.
Now, Sony has decided to take a different course. Instead of pursuing the traditional route, it is going to sell its TV and audio division to a private equity firm. The company will retain a 5% stake in the new company.
However, there’s a big question mark over the future of Sony’s mobile phone business. Although it’s a huge segment of the company, it’s been losing money in the past few years. So, Sony has been trying to cut costs. But, Sony isn’t willing to slash the prices of its phones.
The company is also working to make its smartphone cameras more functional. Its smartphone camera sensors are sold to Apple and other manufacturers.
Meanwhile, its branded elements give the company a sense of credibility. The Bravia Cam, for example, attaches magnetically to the television. This feature allows users to make video calls and control their settings with gesture controls.
Sony’s next-generation line of Bravia XR televisions will be released in 2022. They’ll have a Netflix Adaptive Calibrated Mode, which uses the television’s light sensor to automatically adjust image processing based on ambient light.
In addition to a host of other features, the XR series will also be compatible with Apple’s AirPlay 2. A voice-enabled remote is also provided, which can connect to an Amazon Echo smart speaker.
