nubia Red Magic, Xiaomi Black Shark jump on the high refresh rate train

If you're tired of all the talk about foldable displays or even notches, don't worry, there seems to be a new trend on the way. Although not completely new, screens that boast of refresh rates higher than the normal 60 Hz have, until recently, been the arena of gaming smartphones. With OnePlus' announcement of its own, Samsung-made 120 Hz Fluid Display, it seems that its competitors like ZTE's nubia and Xiaomi's Black Shark will be joining the fray soon as well.

Xiaomi Mi 10 5G and Mi 10 Pro spilled in one major leak

Xiaomi Mi 10 5G and Mi 10 Pro spilled in one major leak

The next major 5G smartphone coming to market was leaked this afternoon in the form of the Xiaomi Mi 10 5G. This is one of two devices in the family - the other has "Pro" in its name. The only major difference between the standard and the Pro versions of this smartphone appears to be a different array of cameras on its back, headed by a gloriously absurd 108-megapixel primary camera.

Xiaomi, OPPO, and vivo form alliance for easy wireless file transfer

Xiaomi, OPPO, and vivo form alliance for easy wireless file transfer

It is both ironic and comical that, despite all the advancements in mobile technology, sharing a simple photo between two phones can still be a hassle. Unless you're talking about AirDrop, but that only works between Apple devices. Despite using a single base platform, sharing between Android smartphones from different manufacturers is no easy task. That is why three of China's biggest smartphone makers have agreed to make it easy to share files with just three taps, at least when sharing between Xiaomi, OPPO, and vivo phones.

Xiaomi Mi MiX Alpha is still a thing, promised to come soon

Xiaomi Mi MiX Alpha is still a thing, promised to come soon

It is too easy to forget that Xiaomi may have been the first to launch a bezel-less phone in the consumer market, even if it's not as bezel-less as many phones are today. Its Mi MiX has since then become the name it used for its innovations and concepts of which the Mi MiX Alpha may perhaps be the boldest and most ambitious. That may be why people are both doubtful and at the same time curious if this phone will even be launched and Xiaomi has some good news/bad news response to that.

Xiaomi Redmi K30 5G is the first to use the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G

Xiaomi Redmi K30 5G is the first to use the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 765G

Just last week, Qualcomm unveiled the processors, what it calls platforms, that will power the next generation of Android smartphones for 2020 and maybe even beyond. Unsurprisingly, 5G was a core focus not just of the flagship Snapdragon 865 platform but also the "premium" Snapdragon 765. Of course, that started a guessing game of which phones will be the first to put either of those two inside and it seems that Xiaomi's Redmi subsidiary has beaten everyone to the punch, not just with the first Snapdragon 765 but the first Snapdragon 765G phone.

Xiaomi invisible front camera patent removes the need for cutouts, notches

Xiaomi invisible front camera patent removes the need for cutouts, notches

While Apple sticks to its wide notch and Samsung plays around with punch holes, Xiaomi may be trying to push for a blemish-free bezel-less screen instead. It already revealed that intention a few months back but has yet to make good on that boast. Xiaomi's notch-free and cutout-free phone is still a no-show, not even a shadow, but a patent may reveal how exactly it plans to pull that off.

Xiaomi Redmi K30 5G offers glimpse of smartphone future

The first Xiaomi Android 5G smartphone will be launched this month with futuristic features aplenty. The name of the phone is Redmi K30 - that's one of Xiaomi's brands, sort of like how Samsung launches Galaxy smartphones. This smartphone is so important to the company that Redmi General Manager (GM) Lu Weibing confirmed work on the project all the way back in August - after the K20 launched earlier this year. So what's the rush?

Xiaomi Mi Watch Apple Watch clone now works with Apple iPhone

Xiaomi Mi Watch Apple Watch clone now works with Apple iPhone

Chinese brands have had the reputation of being copycats. Chinese phone makers have indeed been guilty of that for a time but, for the past years, they have been working hard to change their public image but, last October, Xiaomi single-handedly undid much of that. It's hard not to see the Mi Watch as a ripoff of the Apple Watch except for the fact that it didn't work with iPhones, ironic as that may sound. As of December 3 in China, however, that sweet irony no longer stands as the Mi Watch will now behave a bit like the original, at least as far as iPhone pairing goes.

Xiaomi Mi Note 10 brings CC9 Pro’s 108MP camera to a bigger audience

It was only yesterday that Xiaomi announced the CC9 Pro for China, and now we know what the phone will be called in other parts of the world. Today Xiaomi revealed the Mi Note 10, which is more or less the same exact phone that was announced yesterday, only renamed for other markets. That, most importantly, means that the Mi Note 10 keeps the CC9 Pro's 108-megapixel camera.

Xiaomi Mi Watch (Apple Watch look-alike) costs under $200

China-based smart device maker Xiaomi just released a "Xiaomi Mi Watch" that looks a whole lot like the Apple Watch. It has a very, very similar size and shape... and home screens (watch faces). See if you can tell which of these watches (at the head of this article) are from Xiaomi, and which are from Apple. There are some simple giveaways, but really - there's no getting around the idea that there's some MAJOR design inspiration going on here - to put it kindly.
