A major part of the tech news is driven by good-looking, powerful, and resilient phones. But in reality, the entry-level smartphones meant to just accomplish basic tasks are what drive the sales for most smartphone brands. We recently saw the launch of three new entry-level smartphones from Xiaomi’s Redmi and Realme as well as a mid-range tablet from Samsung. We are now adding dedicated XDA forums for these devices to accelerate discussions and third-party development for these devices.
Realme C11 launched earlier this week with a large 6.5-inch display, 5,000mAh battery, the newly announced MediaTek Helio G35 chipset, and a Pixel 4-esque square camera bump. The device launched in Malaysia with a price of just about $100 for the 2GB+32GB configuration.
Xiaomi Redmi 9A and 9C
On the same day as the Realme C11, Xiaomi also launched two new entry-level devices – the Redmi 9A and the Redmi 9C – in Malaysia. While the Redmi 9A uses a MediaTek Helio G25 chipset, the Redmi 9C is powered by a Helio G35. The Redmi 9A comes with a single 13MP camera on the back and 5MP camera on the front while the 9C comes with 13MP+2MP+2MP triple cameras along with a 5MP on the front. Both the phones come with 6.53″ HD+ displays and 5,000mAh batteries. Out of the two, only the Redmi 9C features a fingerprint scanner.
Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite
The Samsung Galaxy Tab S6 Lite was unveiled back in April for the U.S. and launched in India last month. Unlike the flagship Galaxy Tab S6, the Tab S6 Lite is a mid-range tablet that is powered by Samsung’s Exynos 9611 silicon. It is designed for entertainment and equipped with a large 10.4″ display that is complemented by dual stereo speakers that are tuned by AKG. The Galaxy Tab S6 Lite also comes with an S Pen within the packaging to help you with annotations and sketching on the go.
