This week in Android: Enormous new camera sensors and a new DxOMark camera king

Top Android news: A new DxOMark top dog has been crowned, plus a dubious new 108MP camera sensor, and more!

Published onAugust 18, 2019

This week saw a number of interesting announcements in the Android world, including an enormous 108MP camera sensor from Samsung. That’s 12,032 x 9,024 pixels for those of you doing the math, although with pixel binning images likely won’t be improved much. The first phone to use this sensor will come from Xiaomi later this year.

Speaking of cameras, the HUAWEI P30 Pro was dethroned from the top DxOMark score this week. A week after Samsung officially released the new Note series, the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus 5G now holds the top spot. The test was done with the 5G version, but it has the same sensor as the Galaxy Note 10 Plus so expect similar results.

On the review side, this week we had a look at a few cheaper devices this week: the Xiaomi Mi A3 and the vivo S1. We also reviewed a fantastic set of true-wireless earbuds from Sony and some new noise cancelling headphones from AKG.
