Xiaomi announces the global release of Mi 11, the company’s latest flagship smartphone, and it’s a doozy. Featuring a 6.81-inch AMOLED quad-curve DotDisplay with True Color + 120 Hz refresh rate, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 888 chipset, a triple rear camera system (108MP main, 13MP ultra-wide, 5MP telemacro), a 20MP front-facing selfie camera built into the display, 8GB of 3,200MHz LPDDR5 RAM, 128GB of internal storage, and a 4,600mAh battery with 50W wireless fast charging.

When it comes to mobile gaming, sacrifices need to be made, or at least when you’re talking about smartphones. Sometimes, touchscreen controls just don’t work as well as an actual gamepad, and that’s where Tundra comes in. Simply put, it consists of two halves, with each one magnetically attaching to a smartphone. Once secured, you’ll only have to pair it with your device, and it’s ready to go. One size fits most smartphones, so you won’t have to do any tinkering.

Samsung has not only released several smartphones with advanced display technologies, like the Galaxy Z Fold and Galaxy Z Flip, but they’re still developing new ones. Designer Pranab P Kumar gives us a preview of one such device, called the Galaxy Stick, and it has a slide-out OLED display. When not in use, the display is hidden inside the mobile phone’s frame and at the push of a button, it slides out. There’s a smaller secondary touchscreen for notifications and the fingerprint scanner.

Available now in China, the OnePlus 8T Cyberpunk 2077 limited edition is what the smartphone should have looked like from the start. What really sets is apart from the standard edition is the rear panel, which has three distinct sections. The upper section boasts a large glass panel that houses the camera sensors, complete with ‘2077’ lettering. The middle section and bottom are also glass, but with distinct finishes.

Samsung has many patents that the public isn’t aware of, or at least until they’re approved, and one of them is for an ‘electronic device’ that was recently published by the USPTO (United States Patent and Trademark Office) on October 29, 2020. This smartphone-like device was also included in the database of the WIPO (World Intellectual Property Office) for worldwide protection of the patented technology. The patent sketches reveal that is has multiple screens that enclose the entire device with a display surface.
