Xiaomi is working on a new flagship smartwatch, as well-known tipster Digital Chat Station revealed on its Weibo profile. The Xiaomi Watch S3 will have a larger battery than the S2 and for the first time a Xiaomi wearable will support LTE connectivity.
According to the tip, the Xiaomi Watch S3 battery has a capacity of 520 mAh. That’s slightly larger than the Watch S2’s 500 mAh cell. The OLED display will reportedly support an adaptive refresh rate, which should significantly improve battery life. The Xiaomi smartwatch will also support 4G connectivity and native voice calls directly from the watch.
According to Digital Chat Station, the Xiaomi Watch S3 is expected to launch alongside the Xiaomi 14 series at the end of the year. The smartphones are usually among the first devices in December to feature Qualcomm’s latest flagship Snapdragon chipset.
Xiaomi Mix Flip certified
The Xiaomi Mix Fold 3 is already the third generation of the company’s horizontal foldables. On the other hand, the Chinese have so far stayed away from foldable flip-style phones. Although the competition in the form of the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip5 and the Motorola Razr 40 Ultra is not asleep. Now the model name Xiaomi Mix Flip with the model number 2311BPN23C popped up in an IMEI database in China.
According to a previous rumor, the Xiaomi Mix Flip is set to launch alongside the Mix Fold 4 next year. Other sources are speculating that the first Flip will launch later this year. That’s due to the fact that its model number begins with a 23. The previous renderings indicate a wide camera module with three sensors. Thus, a telephoto lens is also on board, which is said to offer triple optical zoom.
It will be powered by the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 3 chipset, which will be officially presented next month. Since the Mix Fold 3 is very thin and light for a foldable device, the design of the Xiaomi Mix Flip may also go in this direction. Unfortunately, all Xiaomi phones with a “Mix” in their name have so far been limited to the Chinese market.
