Mi 9 Pro & Mi Mix 4 5G Smartphone Launch Date Announced
5G race has already started for telecom equipment makers, and slowly the race is also being witnessed in the smartphone market as smartphone makers are eager to launch smartphones that support 5G. Xiaomi has also joined the race and has announced the launch of Mi 9 Pro and Mi Mix 4. The company has announced a launch event in Beijing, China on September 24. At the event, Xiaomi will also unveil a new Smart TV.
Xiaomi announced the launch of these two phones via its official Twitter and Weibo account. Along with the mention of Mix, there is also a mention of MIUI 11. So, we can expect that we will get a glimpse of the MIUI 11 as well on September 24.

However, even before the launch, some details regarding these phones have been out there. 5G is something very obvious but apart from that, it is known that the Mi 9 Pro Mi Charge Turbo, 30W superfast wireless charging. In terms of hardware, the Mi 9 Pro is said to be powered by Qualcomm’s flagship Snapdragon 855 chipset, coupled with massive 12GB of RAM, a configuration quite similar to what we get on ASUS ROG Phone II. In terms of camera, the Mi 9 Pro would feature a triple camera setup on the back where there is a 48-megapixel primary camera, alongside a 12-megapixel telephone lens and a 16-megapixel ultra-wide lens.
The Mi Mix 4 is even closer to what we have already seen, except the 5G connectivity option. It would be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 Plus processor, coupled with 12GB of RAM and 1TB onboard storage. The phone is said to have a display with a high refresh rate of 90Hz and it would support 40W fast charging. The phone will have a popup camera setup and there will be a 100-megapixel camera- Yes, you read that right! That’s all known for now regarding the Mi Mix 4.
We may also take a look at some of the new features of MIUI 11 and how Xiaomi has redesigned its custom skin. The MIUI 11 may bring new icon styles, an always-on display mode, dark mode scheduler, redesigned file manager and a quick reply feature, but very little is known about it so far. However, it will be pretty interesting for many skeptic people like me who are most curious to know whether Xiaomi would get rid of stupid ads with MIUI 11 or not. At the event, a new Mi Smart TV may be unveiled, and some reports suggest that it would be an 8K premium smart TV. So, looks like September 24 would be quite a busy day for Mi Fans!

OnePlus launched the OnePlus 7 and the OnePlus 7 Pro earlier this year. The Chinese manufacturer is expected to launch the OnePlus 7T Pro and the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition next month.

The OnePlus 7 Pro will be a follow-up of the OnePlus 7 Pro while the OnePlus 7 Pro McLaren Edition is a special edition phone like the last year’s OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition made in partnership with sports car manufacturer McLaren. The renders suggest that OnePlus 7 Pro and as well the McLaren Edition will look exactly like the OnePlus 7 Pro. There is no change in design and will only have additional color options like Haze Blue as seen in the images.
The OnePlus 7T Pro and the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition sport a curved edge-to-edge display and a pop-up selfie camera. Since there will be no change in design including the dimensions, we can expect a 6.67 inch Fluid AMOLED display. It has a 90Hz refresh rate and equipped with an in-screen fingerprint scanner.
According to the renders, the rear of the OnePlus 7T Pro looks exactly like the OnePlus 7 Pro. However, coming to the McLaren Edition, we can see some differences compared to that of the 2018 model. It has a carbon fibre textured pattern on the whole back panel while it was restricted to just the middle in the last year’s McLaren Edition handset. It has classic McLaren orange accents at the sides and bottom
There is a vertically stacked triple rear camera setup in the centre with the LED flash and company logo at the bottom. This is a complete different design compared to the circular camera module expected on the OnePlus 7T. The power button and the alert slider reside on the right side of the phone while the volume rocker is placed on the left. There is a USB Type-C charging port at the bottom that doubles up as an audio jack along with speaker grill and antenna.
There is no official confirmation but the devices will likely to be powered by a Snapdragon 855 chipset paired with 6GB RAM and 128GB onboard storage. The rear triple cameras could come with a 48MP + 16MP + 8MP configuration while the front might offer a 20MP sensor. It is expected to come with a 4100 mAh battery with Warp Charging support.
The OnePlus 7T, OnePlus 7T Pro and the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition is rumoured to be unveiled on September 26 in India with the sales starting from October 15. The company has not given an official statement but we can except an announcement soon.
Realme XT Revealed ahead of Launch, Comes with SD 712 & 6.3 inch AMOLED display with Waterdrop Notch!
Realme XT was mentioned in the Realme 5 and the Realme 5 Pro launch event earlier this month. The world’s first phone with 64MP camera is teased to arrive “when September ends”. Ahead of the official unveiling, the smartphone’s details have surfaced on Weibo. Realme reportedly organized a meet for social media where it discussed the upcoming device. The event also revealed that it may end up being released only in India and not in China.
According to the Realme press event photos that are shared on Weibo, the Realme XT will feature a 6.4 inch Super AMOLED display with a waterdrop notch on top. Under the hood, it will be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 712 paired with 8GB RAM and 128GB internal storage. The phone is expected to arrive in 4GB + 64GB, 6GB + 64GB and 8GB + 128GB variants.
In the optics department, the device will sport a quad-camera setup at the back consisting of a 64MP Samsung ISOCELL Bright GW1 primary sensor with f/1.8 aperture, an 8MP secondary sensor with f/2.25 aperture, a 2MP tertiary macro camera, and a 2MP portrait camera. Both the 2MP sensors have an f/2.4 aperture. On the front, it is speculated to offer a 16MP selfie camera placed on the notch.
Xu Qi Chase, CMO at Realme today posted the first official teaser of the phone. It looks very similar to the Realme 5 with the vertical quad-camera setup while sporting a Snow White color. Since there is no visible fingerprint sensor we can expect to come with an optical sensor under the display.
The handset will run ColorOS 6 on top of Android 9 Pie and will be backed by a 4,000 mAh battery supported by 20W VOOC 3.0 fast charging. At least one of the color options has been revealed to be Pearl Blue with the second color revealed to be Silver Wing White.
