    Top smartphones we look forward to

    Hence, we are looking at some of the top smartphone launches expected in 2022.

    Galaxy S22 Note

    Samsung is expected to bring the Galaxy Note back to reality, albeit with some Galaxy S flavour. Leaks have so far suggested Galaxy S22 Note to be beefed-up Galaxy S21 Ultra with similar multiple cameras and a built-in silo for the S Pen. Even the design gets a squared off form factor similar to the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra.

    Redmi Note 11 Pro

    The Redmi Note 11 Pro already got released in China a few months ago and we now look forward to the global variant of the same. The Chinese variant of the Redmi Note 11 Pro is expected to come as the Xiaomi 11i , which means Xiaomi could still keep the Redmi Note 11 Pro a 4G smartphones. Will it be a beefed up version of the Redmi Note 10 Pro from this year?

    Samsung Galaxy A53

    The Samsung Galaxy A53 has leaked enough to give us a fair idea of what to expect. We know it looks largely similar to the Galaxy A52 from this year, complete with its minimalist design and IP rating for water and dust resistance. Samsung is likely to use the Snapdragon 778G as the chipset, a 64MP triple rear camera setup, a 120Hz AMOLED display, and the newest Android 12 based One UI 4 experience.

    iQOO 9

    Not much has leaked about the iQOO 9, except for the fact that it could be coming a 120W fast wired charging solution. The iQOO 9 is expected to use the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 chip, get the newest camera hardware, a different design, and probably a new version of FunTouch OS based on Android 12.

    Apple iPhone 14

    The biggest launch of next year! The iPhone 14 leaks have already suggested a design reminiscent of the iPhone 4S era with flat glass rear and sharp metal sides. Apple may drop the iPhone 14 Mini in favour of an iPhone 14 Max. All the models are expected to get a 120Hz OLED display, with the Pro versions going for a punch-hole cutout design for the cameras. Keep an eye here as more details emerge regarding the iPhone 14.

    iPhone SE 5G

    The iPhone 14 may be for the affluent but Apple is rumoured to bring an updated iPhone SE early next year. Sadly, the “updated” part is likely to be restrained to the chipset, with Apple probably giving it the A15 Bionic 5G chip from the iPhone 13. The rest of the design and features are expected to remain unchanged, which means the same old 4.7-inch display, TouchID, a single rear camera, and a tiny battery.
