Xiaomi under-display camera phones are coming next year

Samsung was expected to have been researching it first but Xiaomi and OPPO were the first to flaunt working prototypes of under-screen front cameras. Both, however, are being upstaged by ZTE who has pre-announced its upcoming Axon 20 5G as the world's first commercially available phone with that technology. Xiaomi doesn't seem to be worried at all because come 2021, it boasts it will have the best version thanks to its third-gen under-display camera technology.

POCO X3 specs point to an upcoming mid-range Snapdragon chip

Xiaomi sub-brand POCO has been rumored to be working on another model to add to its collection, that despite having already released two phones earlier this year. That said, the POCO X3, as it is currently being called, is expected to sport a slightly different design that will set it apart even from Xiaomi's other phones.

POCO X3 might finally break away from Xiaomi design

POCO X3 might finally break away from Xiaomi design

POCO, or Pocophone, burst into the smartphone scene with an unbelievable offer of mostly high-end specs at a price that would make even OnePlus jealous. It had a few catches, of course, like the use of cheaper materials for its body. One thing that people seem to have also noticed is how POCO's phones resemble their Xiaomi or Redmi cousins, making them look more like rebranded phones rather than products in their own right. The POCO X3 might be changing that perception, though it remains to be seen if it will be a good change after all.

It may not have the world's first under-screen camera, a title the ZTE Axon 20 5G is claiming, but the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra still shocked the mobile world with its insane charging speeds.

Xiaomi Mi TV LUX has a Transparent Edition you thought you never wanted

One of the most used tropes when it comes to sci-fi gadgets has been the use of transparent phones, tablets, and even screens. It actually isn't science fiction anymore and transparent displays do exist, just not in wide use because of technical and economic reasons. As if trying to prove that it doesn't have to be so, Xiaomi just launched a special edition of its Mi TV LUX OLED that will make you wish the wall behind it had more character.

Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra tops DxOMark list, doesn’t live up to one leak

The Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra was earlier described to shock the world and, in at least one aspect, it may have done just that with a bit of a pun. It didn't, however, meet at least one rumored feature that would have really set it apart from the rest of the smartphone brood. Despite the absence of an under-display selfie camera, the Mi 10 Ultra did manage to impress DxOMark, which should cause Huawei some worry.

Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha and its wraparound screen has been axed

Just like Samsung, Xiaomi has a big day scheduled for August 11 where it will launch a handful of new phones across several of its brands. Those might include a few from its premium Mi line that will introduce never before seen features on mobile, like fine-tuning GPUs and under-display cameras. One thing that will be noticeably missing is Xiaomi's futuristic Mi Mix Alpha and the reason is simple.

Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra might debut with world’s first under-screen camera

With the news from last week, it's almost easy to forget that there are other smartphone makers beyond Samsung, Google, OnePlus, and Apple. There are, of course, dozens more and the year is too early to cut them out. Xiaomi definitely still has a lot to announce, as is typical of the company, but one model, in particular, could grab the mobile market's attention. If this new rumor is true, the Xiaomi Mi 10 Ultra might have one feature that Samsung and Apple could have only dreamed of a few years back.

Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro+ might have a GPU feature found only on desktops

Smartphones are slowly but surely approaching PC-level performance, enough for certain companies to bank on mobile technologies to power their next-gen computers. One area where mobile still can't catch up with is in graphics and it will still be a long time before it ever will. That said, it seems that there are efforts from Qualcomm and Chinese phone makers like Xiaomi that are giving users the option of tweaking their phones' graphics performance to their preferences and needs.

Xiaomi to implement back tap gesture ahead just like iOS 14

Xiaomi to implement back tap gesture ahead just like iOS 14

Chinese phone makers, especially Xiaomi, have long been derided for copying Apple's each and every iPhone move. And upcoming feature, though small, will probably reinforce that image despite how these companies have moved away from that stigma and developed their own strong identities. Xiaomi is revealed to be working on a feature for its upcoming MIUI 12 that will allow users to double tap or even triple tap the back of their phones to do something. If that sounds familiar, then you've probably heard that iOS 14 will be bringing that exact same feature in a few months.
