Samsung ISOCELL Bright HMX flaunts 108 megapixels in 1/1.33″ sensor

It seems that Samsung will be making mobile photography a megapixel count contest yet again. A few months ago, it boasted of the mobile industry's first 64 megapixel camera sensor which, ironically, didn't land on any of its phones to date.

Xiaomi Poco phone brand might be no more

Xiaomi is both popular and notorious for putting flagship specs in dirt cheap handsets but it surprised the mobile market when it launched the Pocophone F1. That was an extremely cheap phone with high-end hardware the cut not a few corners to bring the price point way down.

Xiaomi Mi A3 official teardown suggests repairs will be easy

Almost every high-profile phone gets one form of teardown or another. Sometimes it's for the sake of discovering what's inside.
