Week 51 in review: Heads turn to 2023 - Galaxy S23, Pixel 8

It’s the penultimate week of 2022 and we’re almost ready for 2023 and the phones it will bring. But before we cancel 2022, let’s take a look at the top stories from the past seven days.

ZTE has announced the Nubia Z50 with Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 and the 64MP IMX787 35mm primary camera that we loved so much on the Axon 40 Ultra. The Nubia Z50 is exclusive to China for now and starts at CNY 2,999 for the base 8/128 GB version.

The OnePlus 11, which will arrive on February 7, will have a 6.7-inch QHD+ AMOLED with a 120Hz refresh rate, a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset, 12GB or 16GB of RAM, a 4,870mAh battery and a triple camera including 50 MP wide, 48MP ultra wide and 32MP telephoto. There will be a 16MP selfie on the front.

We got another look at the official Galaxy S23 series accessories. The Galaxy S23, S23+ and S23 Ultra will launch on February 1 and will have a choice of accessories – leather cases, Smart View cases, silicone cases and more. The consensus is that the Galaxy S23 Ultra will come in four colors at launch – Cream, Green, Lavender, and Phantom Black.

Google’s Pixel roadmap will include the Pixel tablet, which is expected to launch soon, as well as the Pixel 8 series in 2023 with support for step HDR – the ability to capture different exposures simultaneously with the same pixels. Since the current ISOCELL GN1 sensor inside the Pixel 7 and 7 Pro doesn’t support step HDR, we expect the Pixel 8 phones to have an ISOCELL GN2. The leaked roadmap continues to say that the Pixel Fold will arrive at Google I/O in April or May.

See you next week!
