Week 44 review: Huawei Pocket S becomes cheapest foldable as promising Dimensity 9200 benchmarks leak

Another week down, let’s recap. The MediaTek Dimensity 9200 showed impressive muscle in AnTuTu and GFXBench, especially on the graphics front. It managed to outperform all current chipsets, including the Apple A16 Bionic, though cross-platform comparisons are rarely a good idea.

Xiaomi announced the Redmi Note 12 series last week and the first sale was excellent. The four phones garnered 350,000 orders in the first flash sale, depleting initial inventory.

Meanwhile, Xiaomi showed off a prototype with two of the Xiaomi 12S Ultra’s 1-inch sensors: one is the same as on the 12S Ultra, complete with a lens, the other is lensless and can fit a Leica M mount on the back. higher. It needs an adapter and makes everything bulky, but it’s an interchangeable lens phone! Most likely, we will not see this prototype on the shelves: the next Xiaomi 13 Pro is said to also have a 1″ sensor, perhaps a special edition of that device would be more appropriate.

Huawei announced the Pocket S, the cheapest foldable yet at CNY5,988 ($820/€830) (although you can currently find the Galaxy Z Flip4 for less on the black market). The China-bound Pocket S is a watered-down variant of the P50 Pocket with less impressive cameras and a Snapdragon 778G chipset.

Those were some of the key stories of the week, check out the full list below! See you next week!
