Xiaomi 11T and 11T Pro wants to make “Cinemagic” filmmaking a thing

Smartphone cameras these days have all become sophisticated and powerful, enabling image and video capture with great detail and quality. Most smartphone makers are content to simply boast about those cameras though a few do try to put some context behind these sensors. More than just being able to take great photos or record smooth videos, Xiaomi is creating a new "Cinemagic" buzzword around the idea of dropping heavy and expensive movie-making equipment for a Xiaomi 11T or, better yet, a Xiaomi 11T Pro.

Xiaomi 11T Review : Snappy for the price

Xiaomi 11T Review : Snappy for the price

The Xiaomi 11T is a high-powered smartphone that is effectively a tiny movie screen. Xiaomi positions this device as a "Cinemagic" device, aiming to be a boss in the smartphone camera department. The cameras at the back of this device are very similar to those equipped with the Xiaomi 11T Pro - the big differences appear to come (at least in part) due to the processor inside either smartphone.

Fairphone 4 leak reveals the design of upcoming repairable 5G phone

Fairphone 4 leak reveals the design of upcoming repairable 5G phone

Almost all smartphones these days compete in terms of features and power, with better specs often advertised to be the better choice. Fairphone, however, has always stood by itself on a different battleground, championing sustainability even if it meant getting behind the times. With the Fairphone 4, however, the company is at least trying to catch up with the latest 5G trend, but, based on this latest leak, that might be all that will be modern about the world's first "modular" 5G smartphone.

Pixel 6 Pro leak spills nearly all the beans

Pixel 6 Pro leak spills nearly all the beans

A lot of eyes were on Apple today, but not everyone is an iPhone fan. Some have naturally taken the opportunity to point out the latest iPhone 13's flaws, while others lost no time in trying to pull people's attention towards their own upcoming products. Google is actually one of those whose very brief Nexus Twitter stunt tried to focus the spotlight on the Pixel 6. As if by perfect coincidence, a fresh set of leaks about the Pixel 6 Pro just landed, confirming what we had heard so far but also bringing one disappointing news as well.

Google fined $177 million in South Korea for anti-competitive practices

Galaxy S21 FE launch might be near, Exynos 2100 model confirmed

The Galaxy S21 FE might be one of Samsung's most troubled phones this year, and that's before it even has the chance to launch. Designed to supplement the reportedly disappointing sales of the Galaxy S21 flagship, the Fan Edition has repeatedly been rumored to face production issues attributed to the global chip shortage. Those troubles might finally be in the past, and it seems that Samsung is close to launching this affordable Galaxy S smartphone, sadly with some disappointing points.

Google Messages nudge takes a page out of Gmail’s book

Google Messages nudge takes a page out of Gmail’s book

The amount of information that we're bombarded with every day is almost a sure-fire way for important things to slip through the cracks. While many will rely on their brainpower to remember things, it has been proven that the majority of people tend to forget too easily. Unsurprisingly, there is no shortage of technological solutions that try to give as a nudge about forgotten but important tasks, and Google is bringing one such solution to its Messages Android app after baking for years in Gmail.

Galaxy S21 One UI 4 Android 12 Beta is now open

Galaxy S21 One UI 4 Android 12 Beta is now open

Samsung today is definitely not the Samsung from just four or five years ago, at least when it comes to software updates. After being the most notorious, the company has now become the champion of Android updates, rivaling even Google itself. Unlike in the past, it is also now one of the earliest to let the public test upcoming Android upgrades and is sometimes even one of the first to make it available. That track record was almost broken with the news of the One UI 4 Beta's delay or even cancellation, but, as luck would have it, that's not the case for Galaxy S21 owners.

Pixel 6 Pro pops up at Geekbench with questionable scores

Pixel 6 Pro pops up at Geekbench with questionable scores

There might have been a collective sigh of relief when Google announced its upcoming self-designed Tensor processor and Pixel 6 phones. It seemed that, after a hiatus, Google is ready to once again turn the Pixel into a premium smartphone brand, both in looks and in specs. The Tensor chip, however, has so far been wrapped in mystery and machine learning buzzwords, language that will likely confound most consumers asking the simple question of whether it's powerful enough or not. The Pixel 6 Pro has finally surfaced in a benchmark to provide that answer, but it's still too premature to draw any conclusions from it.

Galaxy S22+ benchmark scores are not what they seem

Galaxy S22+ benchmark scores are not what they seem

Although it's hard to take them at face value, benchmark sightings, especially on Geekbench, have often become indirect sources of information for upcoming phones and computers. They mostly reveal information about the device's processor and RAM, but they might also hold clues about other specs. At the very least, they can give an idea of how powerful or weak an upcoming device might be. That seems to be the case with this Geekbench entry for what is believed to be the Samsung Galaxy S22+, provided you take the numbers with a grain of salt.

WhatsApp transcription for voice message audio tipped to work with Apple [Updated]

An ability to transcribe messages was leaked as a potential upcoming feature in WhatsApp. Information about the feature has not yet been confirmed by WhatsApp or Facebook, but details leaked this week suggest the "Transcription" system will work with Apple (and likely Google) to transcribe text and improve speech recognition. The first bit of this leak appeared in an iOS build of the app - so we'll likely see other angles soon.
