Featured Stories of 2022: 4th Quarter

Welcome to our roundup of the best news stories of 2022. Now we’ll return to the most popular stories from the fourth quarter of the year, having already covered the first nine months.

We are now in the fourth quarter of 2022 and the last major announcements of the year. At this time, Galaxy S23 series rumors are almost weekly and their credibility is constantly growing. We now know that Samsung will announce the Galaxy S23, S23+, and Galaxy S23 Ultra in early February, and most of their specs. The trio will be the first not to feature an Exynos chipset – only Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.

Speaking of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2, it was announced in the fourth quarter, and the first phones with it were created soon after – the iQOO 11 and 11 Pro (we even got to review the 11).

The Oppo Find N2 has arrived just in time for 2022 (we have to review that too). It has made improvements to the screens – coverage has been increased up to 120Hz, while both are slightly wider. The body of the foldable has lost some of the weight, thanks to a new hinge. The only downside to the Find N2 is that it used Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 instead of Snapdragon 8 Gen 2.

During this quarter, Google announced the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro along with the new Pixel Watch. The new phones use the Tensor G2 chipset and the cameras have been updated – the Pixel 7 Pro has new ultra-wide autofocus and a new sensor behind the zoom camera, while the Pixel 7 has become slightly smaller than the 6.

Finally, we closed the year with the announcement of the Xiaomi 13 series. The focal point of the China-only series (for now) is the Xiaomi 13 Pro, which has a main camera sensor of 1-inch type and a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset. But apart from the main camera, the Xiaomi 13 Pro also has a 50MP 3x camera with a wide f/2.0 aperture, which could shake things up. things in the world of smartphone zoom cameras.
