Xiaomi Redmi is launching a Smart Display and a massive smart TV

It's been something of a big day for Xiaomi - in addition to announcing the Redmi K30 Pro and the K30 Pro Zoom, the company also announced a new smart display and a new TV. Details on the TV and the smart display aren't as readily accessible as they were for both the phones, but Xiaomi did give a little bit away about each device. In fact, in the case of the smart display, there's no guarantee it'll even get made.

Redmi K30 Pro and K30 Pro Zoom revealed with Snapdragon 865

Today, Xiaomi is building out the Redmi K30 line further by announcing the K30 Pro and K30 Pro Zoom. From a specifications perspective, both of these phones are pretty much identical, save for a few differences in the rear camera and the storage and RAM configurations. In both cases, Xiaomi promises a flagship phone "without the bells and whistles," in turn keeping prices well below the $1,000 mark we've been seeing in many other flagships.

Redmi Note 9 Pro Max makes the Galaxy S20 look pretty

Redmi Note 9 Pro Max makes the Galaxy S20 look pretty

The Galaxy S20, especially its Ultra incarnation, is arguably one of the most powerful phones so far this half of the year. Depending on who you ask, it might also be one of the most overpriced and the ugliest, at least on its back. The large camera bump really calls attention to itself and the 100X Space Zoom might not be enough to justify it. Of course, it some markets it's going to have a lot of competition and, in India, the new Redmi Note 9 Pro series might just outdo it in divisive design.

POCO F1 Android 10 stable update might just be a few days away

POCO F1 Android 10 stable update might just be a few days away

Affordable smartphones, whether mid-range or the rare high-end, aren't uncommon but you may sometimes get what you pay for, especially in terms of software support. A good number on this tier are lucky to even see a single major update, much less the usual two. The POCO F1, sold as the Pocophone F1 in some markets, is in a rather curious spot in between mid-tier price and high-end specs. Fortunately, Xiaomi has taken the latter factor when it came to Android updates and might be rolling out its second and last major update in a matter of days.

Black Shark 3 PRO 5G gaming phone released: Triggers and everything

Today the Black Shark 3 PRO was revealed in full, complete with physical button shoulder triggers. This device is made for mobile (Android-based) gaming, and comes prepared for all the game streaming action you'll very possibly be enjoying in 2020. Instead of connecting a 3rd-party hardware controller, this device itself is the controller - sort of like you've got a Nintendo Switch, without all the Nintendo.

Xiaomi 40W wireless charging impresses but leaves one question open

Xiaomi 40W wireless charging impresses but leaves one question open

While most of the smartphone market is obsessed with mobile cameras, it seems that Chinese phone makers are also having their own small rivalry. Xiaomi and OPPO, in particular, are seemingly in a race to launch the fastest charging technologies, both wired and wireless, inside their smartphones. Xiaomi definitely has definitely made big claims, especially with its 100W charging demonstration, and it's now making a similar show of prowess with wireless charging. Unfortunately, it also leaves the same question unanswered as before.

Xiaomi Mi A3 Android 10 update halted due to multiple errors

Xiaomi Mi A3 Android 10 update halted due to multiple errors

The very first Mi A1 was a surprise for both Xiaomi fans and Xiaomi itself. Few have probably imagined that the company would put out an Android One phone and Xiaomi itself was caught off guard by how popular the pure experience was to its customers. Despite that, however, it seems that the Android One promise doesn't apply to Xiaomi's phones like other Android One phones. Not only is Android 10 late for the Mi A3, it is apparently so buggy that Xiaomi had to pull it out barely a day after its release.

Xiaomi Black Shark 3 teasers leave little left to the imagination

MWC 2020 may not be happening but smartphone makers are proceeding as normal with their own announcements and launches. Some have even taken the rather unorthodox strategy of spilling nearly all the beans over on social media. That has been OPPO's strategy so far and now Xiaomi sub-brand Black Shark is following suit, teasing some of the upcoming Black Shark 3's key features ahead of a formal announcement.

Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro just dethroned Huawei on DxOMark

Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro just dethroned Huawei on DxOMark

One of the tragedies of Huawei's absence in many markets, especially after losing access to Google Play Store, is the absence of one of the best smartphone cameras in the market, at least by DxOMark's standards. Even Apple and Samsung and especially Google have been outshone by the latest Huawei flagships that you can't get. There might be less regret and envy now that Xiaomi has taken the top spot on that list but, of course, you still can't get the new Xiaomi Mi 10 Pro directly in some markets.

Xiaomi Mi 10 is coming: what you need to know

MWC 2020 will be an interesting one this year and not exactly in the usual sense. Quite a number of high-profile companies have withdrawn from the event due to health concerns over the novel coronavirus outbreak. A few Chinese companies like OPPO have decided to stick around but Xiaomi definitely isn't. Instead, it has decided to do the hip thing these days and simply live stream the unveiling of its Mi 10 while also flooding the Interwebs with not so subtle teasers of its next flagship.
