As the new 2023 has begun, let’s recap its first week. CES 2023 took place in Las Vegas, which is traditionally the scene for Intel and AMD to make a big announcement. AMD detailed its Ryzen 7000 desktop and mobile processors, along with four new Radeon 7000 series GPUs. Intel unveiled its 13th Gen laptop processors, building on the innovative and popular 12th Gen.

On the other side of the world, OnePlus has announced its new flagship – the OnePlus 11 – in China. It comes with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chip, up to 16GB of RAM, cameras tuned by Hasselblad, a 6.7-inch LTPO 3.0 AMOLED display, and a 5,000mAh battery. The OnePlus 11 is already available for orders in China with global availability to follow in February. Also, in a change in naming strategy, there won’t be a OnePlus 11 Pro this year, so it’s the first-half flagship.

There hasn’t been a week without at least one popular Galaxy S23 story for a while now and Week 1 of 2023 was no exception. First, we learned that Samsung would be discontinuing the 128GB models and launching the range at 256GB, which unfortunately later turned out to be incorrect. Second, we got official, high-quality renders of all three models. We’re tired of rehashing specs at this point, but it’s nice to have a good idea of ​​the colors – tan, pink, sage (green) and black.

The Redmi Note 12 series has made its global debut, starting with India. In typical Redmi fashion, the Redmi Note 12 that will be sold in India differs slightly from its namesake available in China. The Redmi Note 12 Pro and the Redmi Note 12 Pro+ are identical.

Lenovo announced Motorola’s ThinkPhone (yes, that’s the official name). Like a ThinkPad laptop, the ThinkPhone is made of high-quality materials, has one red-emphasized feature – a button, instead of a joystick, and is tightly integrated with Lenovo’s ThinkPad devices. The ThinkPhone features a 6.6-inch 1080p OLED with 144Hz refresh rate, Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 chipset, 50MP main camera and 5000mAh battery . Additional niceties include wireless charging, IP68, and improved MIL-STD 810H drop resistance. Lenovo has yet to share the price of the ThinkPhone.

It is the first Redmi Note smartphone of the year to be launched outside of China.
