Week 5 in review: Galaxy M10 and M20 debut as Galaxy S10 leaks intensify

We’ve finally finished off January and are heading into Mobile World Congress’ month. The last week of the first month was quite busy and we got a lot of big stories to talk about.

As is often the case lately the Samsung Galaxy S10 was the focal point in the tech world. This week we saw the cleanest and highest-quality renders yet of the Galaxy S10 and S10+ as well as the S10+ in a revealing image in the wild.

We also learned that the Galaxy S10+ will have a more premium configuration with 12GB of RAM and 1TB of storage. Samsung has already started mass producing its upcoming lineup of flagship phones in order to cope with the demand at launch.

In related news Samsung finally unveiled its revamped entry-level phones. The Galaxy M10 and M20 will go on sale in India on February 5 at very aggressive prices.

As with previous weeks the Sony Xperia XZ4 was not heavily leaked but what few stories we saw were very popular. This week we heard some tempting first whispers of the flagship’s specs. While unconfirmed, the specs suggest a 6.5-inch 21:9 OLED display, a 4,400mAh battery and a 52MP camera.

Oppo is developing an in-screen camera but it doesn’t seem ready for prime time just yet. Rumor has it that it will be embedded into an app icon.

Redmi, Xiaomi’s newly separated sub-brand, was in the news this week. Starting with the upcoming Redmi Note 7 Pro – it will offer a 6GB + 128GB version. Redmi’s CEO started a poll asking Redmi fans what they wanted most out of the Note 7 Pro and a faster processor was the most requested upgrade.

Also, Redmi’s first Android Go phone became a reality this week – the Redmi Go costs just €80.

As the MWC draws near it became clear that LG is prepping a big announcement – it will show off both the LG G8 and the V50 ThinQ at the congress.

Speaking of phones that will come to the MWC – we learned that the Nokia 9 PureView will come with 18W fast charging (like Google’s Pixels).

Finally we saw concept images of what the iPhone XI might look like with a squarer flatter design.

See you in a week!
