The Xiaomi 13 Ultra could rival the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra for cameras

The Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro are expected to launch imminently, but it looks like a Xiaomi 13 Ultra could arrive before long too, and this might be worth holding out for, as the latest leak suggests it could rival the Samsung Galaxy S23 Ultra for photography.

According to Digital Chat Station – a leaker with a good track record – posting on Chinese site Weibo (via NotebookCheck), the Xiaomi 13 Ultra will have four cameras on the back. So that’s more than most phones and in line with the Galaxy S22 Ultra – and what we’re expecting from the Galaxy S23 Ultra.

One of these cameras will apparently use a large one-inch sensor – like the impressive Xiaomi 12S Ultra – which isn’t something Samsung is likely to match. While sensor size isn’t the only consideration in cameras, it can have a huge impact on image quality.

The Xiaomi 13 Ultra will apparently also sport an “anti-shake module” according to a machine translated version of the post, which some sites have interpreted as meaning gimbal stabilization. In short though, it sounds like this phone will offer better image stabilization than most handsets.

We don’t know much else about the Xiaomi 13 Ultra, but it probably won’t land until after the Xiaomi 13 and Xiaomi 13 Pro, as those two have both been teased by Xiaomi itself, and were expected to land on December 1, before the launch was delayed.

As for when they might launch now, NotebookCheck claims December 7 and 8 have been leaked as possible dates, though it’s not clear where that information came from.

We certainly won’t be waiting long though, as Xiaomi has even listed the two phones on its Tmall website. Seemingly there was imagery briefly too, spotted by @TechnoAnkit1, though that appears to have since been removed.

There are a few additional details worth mentioning, with Xiaomi having reportedly confirmed that the standard Xiaomi 13 will have a 1080p AMOLED screen with a 120Hz refresh rate, while PriceBaba claims that both models will be available with a choice of 8GB of RAM with 128GB or 256GB of storage, or 12GB of RAM, along with 256GB or 512GB of storage.

Analysis: a trio of phones to challenge Samsung

Xiaomi’s upcoming smartphone line could provide some direct competition to Samsung, with the Xiaomi 13 likely positioned as a Galaxy S23 rival, the 13 Pro as a rival to the S23 Plus, and the Xiaomi 13 Ultra set to rival the Galaxy S23 Ultra.

Xiaomi even has the advantage of launching at least some of these phones ahead of Samsung, as we’re not expecting to see the Galaxy S23 line until around February 2023.

That said, the Xiaomi 13 Ultra sounds by far to be the most exciting of the three, and we’re not sure when that will launch. Plus, even the other two models are only imminently landing in China – so a global launch may not happen until after the Samsung Galaxy S23 series is on shelves.

Still, with all of these handsets probably landing before too long we could be entering another exciting period for phones, as these all sound like contenders for our best phones list, with the Ultra models in both lines likely to make our best camera phones list too.

Apps like Sharedr will no longer be able to replace the default share dialog. What you need to know Third-party apps will not be allowed to replace the Android share menu in Android 12. You will no longer be able to set apps like Sharedr as the default. Google says it never intended to allow third-party apps to replace the official Sharesheet.

Android 12 will also introduce a major change to the way users share links and photos, according to a report from XDA Developers . On Android 11 , Google allows third-party apps and OEMs to fully customize the Android Sharesheet, which is the reason why the share dialog differs from one app to another.

The new Amazon Fire HD 10 is growing into a viable productivity tablet

An already good entertainment device finally gets productive. Amazon has been busy churning out a whole host of new devices and upgrades to existing devices over the past several months. Earlier this year, I reviewed the excellent Echo Buds (2nd Gen) , and even the fantastic Echo Frames (2nd Gen), have since been updated to include options with sunglass and blue light filtering lenses . In early May, we also learned that Amazon was refreshing the Echo Show 5 and Echo Show 8 and that it was even rolling out its first Echo Show for kids . While newer and more novel products like the ones mentioned above often see a faster update cycle, more mature devices like Kindle e-readers and Fire tablets go longer between new versions. In fact, the last update to the Fire HD 10 line was back in 2019, so, understandably, Amazon was ready to reinvigorate its flagship tablet. Not only did it update the specs and colors on the Fire HD 10, but it also gave us a second version in the Fire HD 10 Plu

Google Announces Support for Account Passkeys

Google today announced that it is introducing support for passkeys, providing an easier and more secure login method for Google accounts. Apple integrated passkeys into iOS with the launch of iOS 16 , and it is also available in iPadOS 16.1 and later as well as macOS Ventura . Passkeys are an industry standard developed by the FIDO Alliance and the World Wide Web Consortium, so Google's passkey integration will work on Apple devices as well as on other devices that support the feature. As Google notes: Last year — alongside FIDO Alliance, Apple and Microsoft — we announced we would begin work to support passkeys on our platform as an easier and more secure alternative to passwords. And today, ahead of World Password Day, we've begun rolling out support for passkeys across Google Accounts on all major platforms. They'll be an additional option that people can use to sign in, alongside passwords, 2-Step Verification (2SV), etc. Passkeys are both easier to use and more
