Samsung Galaxy S23+ And Galaxy S23 Ultra Leak: This week’s Android Circuit looks back at seven days of news and headlines from the Android world, including information on the Galaxy S23 Ultra’s performance, Google Pixel roadmap leaks, the OnePlus 11’s significant sales, Motorola’s ThinkPhone, Honor’s new gaming phone, and the fact that the Chinese smartphone market is contracting.
Galaxy S23 Ultra Performance Numbers Leak
Samsung’s release of the Galaxy S23 family will set the standard for the 2023 smartphone experience. The specifications of the new Qualcomm SnapDragon and South Korean engineering are becoming clearer to us:
The performance of the Snapdragon 8 Gen 2-equipped Galaxy S23, Galaxy S23+, and Galaxy S23 Ultra will significantly improve over that of their predecessors. According to reports, the forthcoming phones would have 36% faster CPU speed, 48% faster GPU, and 60% quicker NPU (Neural Processing Unit used for AI and ML acceleration). Additionally, the gadgets are anticipated to include a better chipset cooling system for improved performance under heavy loads.Pixel Roadmap Details

According to a leaked roadmap, Google has established an annual release schedule for its Pixel devices, which appears to be continuing. Additionally, we now know the approximate arrival dates for the Pixel Gold and the Pixel 7a:
“According to rumours, the Pixel 7a will cost $449 in the US, the same as the Pixel 6a. Expect a 90 Hz refresh rate screen and compatibility for wireless charging in the future iteration. On the other hand, the price of the Pixel Fold is “confirmed” (to the extent that a rumour can) to be $1,799.”
OnePlus 11 Specs Have Some Big Numbers
Several details and renderings of the OnePlus 11’s premium smartphone have leaked online before its official release. Naturally, it highlights the significant figures, but the large (and oddly offset) camera island has grabbed my attention.
“The 6.7-inch QHD+ AMOLED display on the OnePlus 11 is rumoured to have HDR10+ support, a 120Hz refresh rate, a punch-hole cutout for the front camera, and 3216 x 1440 resolution. The phone is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen2 processor, an Adreno GPU, up to 16GB of RAM, and 256GB of fixed storage that cannot be expanded further. OxygenOS, a custom skin based on Android 13, is likely to boot the phone out of the box.”
Motorola ThinkPhone Details
In terms of laptops, the IBM ThinkPad is a household name. Will the ThinkPhone eventually be able to say the same thing? Lenovo certainly hopes so, as a “Think” smartphone is expected to join the Motorola lineup in 2023.
“The understated and straightforward style is what really distinguishes it as a “Think” branded product. According to rumours, the ThinkPhone’s body will be made of aluminium with a “Aramid Fiber Inlay” back plate to increase its endurance without a case. The Motorola ThinkPhone will use a triple-lens arrangement for the camera array. A 50MP primary sensor, a 13MP wide-angle lens, and a 2MP depth sensor are all part of this package.”

Since China is the world’s largest smartphone market, any effects on sales there will be felt all over the world. Therefore, every manufacturer worldwide should take notice to the country’s declining shipment rate:
“According to a data released on Monday by the China Academy of Information and Communications Technology, the number of smartphones shipped within China in October decreased by 27.2% from the previous year to 23.78 million devices. From January to October, the number of smartphones shipped decreased by 22% to 215 million units from the same time last year.” Follow Digitalnewsexpert.com for more updates.
