End of the year means first peek towards 2023 Android phones already. While we anticipate the phones of 2023, we’d like to reflect on the Android phone manufacturers that may have left an influence on you in 2022.
Android original equipment manufacturers have had a very productive year. Samsung’s new foldable phones are simply the latest example of the company’s unrivalled market dominance. It’s also noteworthy that it has released Android 13 to a sizable fraction of its active and legacy devices well before 2023.
Motorola’s Razr 2022 is the first foldable smartphone to retail and has the world’s first 200 megapixel camera. Motorola also enhanced their software update guarantee while dominating the mid-range and affordable smartphone markets.
Aside from the 200MP camera phone, Xiaomi surprised us with a neat concept gadget that can be outfitted with a lens attachment to produce even higher-quality photographs. Xiaomi and OPPO, two OEMs with foldable phones that look like they may give Samsung a run for its money in terms of design and performance, are just two examples of the excellent handsets and numerous foldable phones we’ve seen recently.
Meanwhile, Google announced the Pixel Tablet, which won’t be released until 2023, and released its first wristwatch and premium earphones, expanding its ecosystem. With a new look and the newest Tensor chipset, Google offered its budget-friendly Pixel 6a flagship capabilities.
OnePlus’s latest smartphones have faster charging times and outstanding specifications at affordable pricing, and the company has no plans to slow down. Meanwhile, ASUS’ Zenfone 9 and ROG Phone 6D Ultimate small- and gaming-phone categories respectively.
Nothing’s initial smartphone, the Nothing Phone (1), with its light-up Glyph interface, created quite a sensation in the market. That’s not too horrible, as far as initial impressions go.
There are, of course, a plethora of Android original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to choose from, each with their own set of advantages and disadvantages that may have left an effect on you in 2022. Please share your rationale in the poll’s comments or on Twitter and Facebook.
