Xiaomi officially started the second half of the year with the launch of its Xiaomi 12S the beginning of its collaboration with Leica. A very attractive line, but apparently it will not come out of China.
iPhone 14: the death of the little one in the family and a higher price
Let’s be fans of iOS or not, we cannot deny that the release of the next iPhone marks the second half of the year for the mobile market.
Let’s remember: Apple it has started trends like disappearing the headphone jack or removing chargers from boxes.
This generation of iPhone it may be one of the ones that introduces the most changes.
It is anticipated that the iPhone mini will disappear after not achieving the expected sales and the iPhone 14 it will start at $799 and climbing the fence to get the “cheapest” new iPhone at almost $200.
a new model iPhone 14Max would give us 6.7”, just like the iPhone 14 ProMax. the already known iPhone 14 Pro would make up the new generation, which would differentiate the Pro models by having a better chip.
Although the European Union has fought because the connector USB-C reach the iPhone it seems that this generation will not make the expected change.
Possible date: from the second week of September.
Samsung maturing folding phones
The most recent generation has even been resistant to water and dust, providing greater guarantees on its durability after the eventful launch of the Galaxy Fold originally in 2019.
Are there pending tasks? Of course. Even the crease in the screen leaves marks with some brands proposing some answers, which surely Samsung has taken into account.
Also, you need an operating system and apps that get more out of folding phones. This obviously also depends on the Google with Android and other developers.
Possible date: the Galaxy Unpack of the Samsung foldables have taken August, the month that previously belonged to the Galaxy Note.
Xiaomi Redmi Note 12: Now a jump to the mid-range?
Reviewing the recent generation of Redmi Note 11 (see on Amazon) we notice something: good cell phones, but they do not mark a dramatic jump compared to what is seen in the Redmi Note 10 (see on Amazon).
And we don’t just mean Xiaomi. In general, it seems that the mid-range in 2022 has been in debt so far.
The positive? Most likely, we won’t have to wait long to find out what the Redmi Note 12 and what they will offer.
Of course, we also look forward to seeing if other brands surprise in the mid-range. There are good signs: Snapdragon 778+ and new size from Mediatec.
Possible date: If we base ourselves on 2021, a launch in China at the end of October 2022 and its possible arrival in other markets in early 2023.
High-end and cell phones for gamers: Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 to the vein
Something similar happened with the high end. The Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 was not the jump in performance that many expected, but the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 promises 10% more performance than its predecessor, good news for fans of the high-end and the gamer cell phones.
We hope that many brands will show their high-end proposal with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1.
Possible date: We know that the ROG Phone 6 of ASUS will be presented on July 5 and that REDMAGIC will also seek to put together an attractive gaming proposal with the Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1.
Competition in folding
Honor, Huawei, OPPO, Motorola and Xiaomi have already shown that they can do collapsible, but Samsung continues to maintain dominance in this market.
In this second half of 2022, we expect that some phone from these companies can enter the competition with mass launch models.
Keep an eye on these brands
The Pixel 6 they did not leave us the best taste in 2021.Google will be vindicated?
This 2022 officially comes out Nothing Phone (1) the first cell phone of the company of the co-founder of one plus. This model with transparent touches and LED lights is different, but we know that it will reach limited markets.
We also found out that Meizu try to return to the fore after it was bought by the car brand Geely.
