Despite the pandemic and the shortage of chips, the outgoing year 2021 turned out to be very rich in new items. In January, we were presented with the Galaxy S21, which many people liked. In the spring, OnePlus showed one of its top-end devices. By the middle of the year, the world saw the flagship Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra with decent specifications and a cool camera, and just the other day the Xiaomi Mi 12 came out, which, I am sure, may well claim the title of the best smartphone of 2022. We hope that next year the problem with the chips will be finally solved, and we will be able to see a lot of cool new products.
It’s sad, of course, that Samsung has ditched the Galaxy Note lineup. Still, these smartphones were very popular among people of creative professions and gave users a unique experience that modern gadgets lack so much.
Moreover, according to rumors, the top model of the Korean brand will quite possibly change the Ultra prefix to Note. It is difficult to judge how much the right decision was, but the S22 will definitely be top-end.
And now we will try to summarize all the innovations:
Great design with new case materials (for the Ultra model), colors and narrow bezels.
The main camera module is 108 MP with an aperture of f / 1.8 and an angle of view of the module of 85 degrees and three auxiliary sensors.
If the Korean company has everything according to plan, then in January 2022 we will be able to look at the brand new Samsung Galaxy S22, which promises us cool characteristics and unique features.
The smartphone, the production of which was postponed for several months, is the main novelty of the beginning of 2022, the best budget smartphone on Android – as soon as they call the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE. It turns out very silly that a gadget from the S21 series will be released almost on a par with the next generations, don’t you think? I predict bad sales.
According to rumors, the blame for this is the difficult situation on the market and the shortage of chips that overtook us in 2021. Yes, it was not without losses, nothing can be done. Taking into account that the Koreans have been gathering their thoughts for almost a whole year, the characteristics of the Samsung S21 FE have long been merged:
6.4-inch AMOLED screen with 120Hz support.
Cameras: 12 MP (f / 1.8, OIS), 12 MP, f / 2.2 for ultra-wide, 8 MP (f / 2.4, OIS, 3x optical zoom).
Front camera: 32MP
Battery: 4500mAh, 25W fast wired and wireless charging.
IP68 water and dust resistant.
Recently, a review from the novelty appeared on the network, where they described in detail all the nuances of the device’s operation and compared it with the Paco X3. According to the video, the screen of the Samsung Galaxy S21 FE gives off a little green, and the fingerprint scanner in the screen is optical, and not ultrasonic, as we are used to.
According to the well-known insider John Prosser, the S21 FE can be presented as early as January 3, and the start of sales will begin on January 11. It turns out very silly that a gadget from the S21 series will be released almost on a par with the next generations, don’t you think? I predict bad sales.
When will OnePlus 10 Pro come out
Just the other day, information appeared on the network about the new OnePlus 10 Pro, which, according to rumors, will be presented to us at the very beginning of 2022, namely on January 4. This is a bit strange considering that flagships from OnePlus usually come out a little later, in February. This year, as the author of AndroidInsider.ru Artem Stygian rightly noted, the Chinese have apparently decided to spoil the sales of Samsung.
There have been plenty of rumors about the specs of the OnePlus 10 Pro over the past few months, so it is likely that they will be exactly like this:
6.7 ″ AMOLED screen with QHD + resolution and support for 120 Hz.
SoC Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 processor.
Three camera modules: 50 MP, 48 MP and 8 MP.
Battery with a capacity of 5000 mash.
Supports 125W fast charging.

What will be the Google Pixel 6a
The new budget Google Pixel won’t be nearly as cheap as we’d like it to be. At least that’s what the rumors say, according to which the characteristics of the Google Pixel 6a will be extremely similar to the classic sixth pixel.
The novelty can get a branded Google Tensor, presented to us a little earlier, the same design that many liked, a fingerprint scanner and a front camera. Slight differences will be only in the diagonal of the device, which will decrease from 6.4 ″ to 6.2 ″ and in the slightly weakened main camera, which may lose one sensor.
Otherwise, it will be the same cool smartphone that we were shown earlier. I think this device definitely deserves the attention of fans of original smartphones from Google. You can read about all the leaks of the new Google Pixel 6a in our article, where we analyzed all the nuances in detail.
