Week 8 in review: The Redmi K40 series, Narzo 30 Pro is here

Let’s take a look back at the last week of February, which was very busy.

Samsung has announced that it will roll out at least 4 years of security updates to all smartphones launched after 2019. That big list includes the Z series , S, Note, A, M, XCover and Tab.

Xiaomi announced the Redmi K40 series. The Redmi K40, K40 Pro and K40 Pro + have 6.7-inch Samsung E4 AMOLED displays with 120Hz refresh rate and 360Hz touch sampling rate and all four have a 4,520mAh battery with a 33W charge that will charge 100% in 52 minutes. The K40 has Snapdragon 870, the K40 Pro and Pro + have Snapdragon 888’s.

Xiaomi has another Redmi line – the Redmi Note 10 getting closer too. We saw sales boxes of both the Redmi Note 10 and the Redmi Note 10 Pro. Both promise to have AMOLED displays, the Redmi Note 10 will have a 48MP main camera, while the Snapper Pro will provide 64MP.

Samsung released the ECG monitoring and blood pressure features on the Galaxy Watch Active2 and Galaxy Watch3 lines in 31 countries. You need to download the Health Monitor app to get the features working.

Speaking of Samsung, it announced its new 50MP ISOCELL GN2 camera sensor with new Dual Pixel Pro technology, an evolution of PDAF automation technology. ISOCELL GN2 sensor type size is 1 / 1.12 ”, the largest in a wholesale smartphone and has 1.4μm pixels for“ highly detailed images in regular situations ”. The Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra will feature the new sensor first.

While on the subject of camera sensors, Huawei may be the first to use Sony ‘s IMX800 sensor. This is the first 1-inch sensor, developed for phones and is even larger than Samsung’s ISOCELL GN2 sensor. Great times for motion pictures indeed.

We close the iteration with Huawei. He named his Mate X2 folding phone with an integrated design, similar to the Galaxy Z Fold2. It has an 8-inch indoor display with a resolution of 2480x2200px and an 8: 7.1 squarish view ratio. The external screen is a more typical 6.45-incher of 21: 9 sides. Both displays are OLED and have a 90Hz refresh rate. The Mate X2 also has a robust camera system with a 50MP RYYB main sensor, a 12MP 3x telecam, an 8MP 10x periscope zoom camera and a 16MP ultrawide.
