Week 39 in review: Redmi Note 11R is here, Pixel 7 rumors have been heating up for the past week

Week 45 in review: Dimensity 9200 is here, Infinix Zero 5G 2023 official

Another week in the books, let’s take a look at the top stories from the last seven days. The Xiaomi 13 goes completely flat. The new design was revealed in renderings, and we also have dimensions – 152.8 x 71.5 x 8.3 mm. The camera hump is 10.3 mm thick. The phone is also reported to run on the latest generation Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip.

We’ve also seen renders of the Xiaomi 13 Pro and it has Xiaomi’s current design language with a slim, contoured frame and curved glass panels on either side. The Xiaomi 13 Pro is expected to feature the same 1-inch IMX989 sensor as the 12S Ultra. The 13 series could be launched as early as December.

The Leica Leitz Phone 2 was introduced in Japan. The new device shares its key hardware with the Sharp Aquos R7, but offers a sturdier design with textured metal sides, Leitz branding and a metal cap for the rear camera. On the back is the same 47-megapixel main camera with a 1-inch sensor. Developed jointly by Sharp and Leica, the sensor features a Leica Summicron lens with seven elements, an aperture of F/1.9 and a focal length of 19 mm.

Google has teased its Black Friday deals for the Pixel 7, 7 Pro and 6a. Here is the overview. The Pixel 7 is $100 at $499, and the Pixel 7 Pro is $150 at $749. The cheapest phone you can get from Google on Black Friday remains the Pixel 6a, which will drop to $299 from its usual price of $449.

The Infinix Zero 5G 2023 was officially equipped with a Dimensity 1080 chip, a 6.78-inch IPS LCD with a 120Hz refresh rate and a 50MP main camera. Nothing is known about prices and availability.

MediaTek announced the Dimensity 9200. The chip is based on TSMC’s 4nm N4P node and features a Cortex-X3 core running up to 3.0GHz, 3 Cortex-A715 cores running up to 2.85GHz and 4 Cortex-A510 cores with 1.8 GHz efficiency. The chip supports 5G sub-6 GHz, mmWave, Wi-Fi 7 and Bluetooth 5.3 and USB 4.0. The first Dimensity 9200-powered phones are expected to launch in late 2022, which is less than two months away at that point.

The Realme 10 is the other announcement of the week, featuring a Helio G99 chip, a 6.4-inch AMOLED with a 90Hz refresh rate, a 50MP JN1 main camera, which is sort of a downgrade from the Realme 9, and a 5,000 mAh battery. The Realme 10 will be available soon, starting at $230 for the 4/64GB model.
