More than 2 months have passed since 2021. The competition in the flagship phones market will enter a fierce stage in the next few months, because major new flagships are gaining momentum. If new flagships such as the Xiaomi Mi 11, the Samsung Galaxy S21, and the iPhone 12 did not make you feel satisfied, then the following five new models should meet your requirements.
OPPO Find X3, coming around mid-March
The three new OPPO flagship phones with models of PEGM10, PEGT10, and PEEM00 have been appeared on the network and have passed the 3C certification. So we are guessing these refer to the OPPO Find X3 series and it will come in March. At present, the appearance and some parameters of this phone have been leaked.
The Find X2 released in 2020 has achieved a good sales performance with its high-quality 2K screen and powerful camera. This year, the OPPO Find X3 will be upgraded again on the original basis, bringing unexpected surprises.
The OPPO Find X3 screen will support a full-link color management system. It will make the color display effect of pictures and videos even better. In addition, the OPPO Find X3 Pro will still come with a 6.7-inch 2K high-quality screen that supports 120Hz refresh rate. There is a built-in 4500mAh battery, which supports 65W wired fast charge and 30W wireless fast charge.
In terms of appearance, the OPPO Find X3 has four rear cameras. The camera module and the back panel have a curvature. The front also adopts a curved hole screen design. The front camera is located in the upper left corner.
OnePlus 9 Pro, coming in March to April
The OnePlus flagship phones always boast of their outstanding screen and smooth experience. But their camera modules have always been mediocre. This time, the OnePlus 9 Pro is going to fix this. The brand new Snapdragon 888 flagship machine will bring extraordinary imaging experience. The OnePlus 9 Pro will jointly develop a camera with the Hasselblad.
The new OnePlus 9 Pro still uses a hyperboloid hole-punch screen design on the front, with a 2K screen resolution. It still comes from Samsung. On the back, the phone will carry a matrix quad-camera. It consists of a 48MP main camera + 48MP wide angle + ultra wide angle + portrait lenses combination. The front camera has a 32MP resolution.
The OnePlus 9 Pro will come standard with a 4500mAh battery. It will support 65W wired fast charge + 40W wireless fast charge.
Xiaomi Mi 11 Pro, coming in May
Considering that the Xiaomi Mi 11 is in a hot selling stage, Xiaomi decided not to release other flagship phones such as the Mi 11 Pro so quickly. We are waiting for it around May.
The new Xiaomi 11 Pro will definitely have a major camera upgrade. The main camera still has a 108MP resolution. It should have new breakthroughs in telephoto and wide-angle shooting.
Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra, coming from August to September
A couple of days ago, a YouTuber posted a video showing a new Xiaomi smartphone, but this video was quickly deleted. However, we (and not only) were very attentive and managed to take a few photos from the video.
Well, this is going to be the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra. As you can see from the picture, the phone has a huge camera module on the back. And there is a small rear secondary screen on the right side of the lens. The camera module comes with the words ‘120X’, hinting it will support a 120x zoom.
In addition, this new Xiaomi machine supports 67W wired (or 120W) + 67W wireless + 10W reverse charging. The phone will have a built-in 5000mAh battery.
Huawei P50 Pro, coming in March to April
At the beginning of February, we saw a rendering of the Huawei P50 Pro. Compared with the P40 series, the back side still uses a matrix camera module. The front side uses a curved centered hole screen.
Judging from the renderings, the Huawei P50 Pro uses five cameras on the back, one of which is a periscope telephoto lens. The main camera may use a brand new 80MP CMOS and supports up to 200x digital zoom.
The Huawei P50 series will come with the same 5nm Kirin 9000 processor of the Mate 40 series. However, due to the current shortage of Huawei chips, there are reports that Huawei may switch to MediaTek SoC.
