10 new products in March: boring iPhone SE, Sber smart TVs and smartphones for all occasions

iPhone SE (2022). New filling in old wrapper

The phone looks exactly like the iPhone 8. It has the same glass body, 4.7-inch screen with large bezels, button with fingerprint scanner. Only the interior has changed: under the hood there was a powerful A15 Bionic chip (like the iPhone 13 and 13 Pro), and the amount of RAM increased from 3 to 4 GB.

The phone is IP67 waterproof and now supports 5G. Autonomy has increased slightly. In this article, we discussed why innovation has proven to be rather boring.

The realme GT Neo 3 is the fastest charger in the world

This record holder is able to restore half the energy in just five minutes. Thank you for the UltraDart 150W fast charge technology. The manufacturers say that there is nothing dangerous about it: 38 degree battery fire protection is provided. By the way, the battery here is quite large, as much as 5000 mAh. On the front, it features a 6.7-inch 120 Hz AMOLED display. Responsible for the system is the MediaTek Dimensity 8100 processor and the 8/12 GB memory. Android 12 is integrated and on it is a new Realme UI 3.9 shell.

Honor Magic4 series – the flagship of the smartphone series

Honor Magic4 Pro

There are three new products at the same time: the basic Magic4, the flagship Magic4 Pro and a little later the Magic4 Ultimate, which immediately topped the DxOMark mobile camera rankings. All thanks to the giant sensors. For example, the size of the sensor on the main unit is 1 / 1.12 inches versus 1 / 1.56 inches for the Pro version. The telephoto lens supports 100x digital zoom.

All smartphones have an LTPO OLED matrix with a dynamic refresh rate of 120 Hz. The processors are also identical – the freshest Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, built according to 4 nm process technology (we have already written about its advantages). For the first time among smartphones, 100 Watt wireless charging was announced: from 0 to 50%, the smartphone charges in 15% of minutes – a record. And you can unlock Magic4 even in the dark: there is a 3D face scanner with IR lighting.

MSI Prestige 14 and 15 – slim and lightweight laptops for work

The 14-inch model is 15.9 mm thick and weighs just 1.29 kg. These dimensions were enough to fit a good RTX 3050 (4 GB) graphics card and a fresh 12th generation Intel Core i7 processor. An FHD monitor with almost 100% sRGB coverage is responsible for image quality. At the same time, the 15-inch version received a UHD screen with 100% coverage of AdobeRGB color space (but there is a standard version, like the newer version). The video card here is a little more powerful: GeForce RTX 3050 Ti.

The capacity of the battery is 5000 mAh (there is a fast charge of 67 W). Amateur photographers will appreciate the 108 + 8 + 2 megapixel camera.

The POCO M4 Pro model is a bit simpler: it has a 6.43-inch screen with a refresh rate of 90 Hz, a slightly less productive MediaTek Helio G96 chip and a triple camera with 64 + 8 + 2 MP units. The battery is just as big – 5000 mAh – but fast charging is weaker: only 33 watts.
