Upcoming smartphones next week: February 2023, Week 2

Here are the upcoming phones to launch this week from a new POCO X Series to another OnePlus installment, down to realme’s flagship killer in GT Neo5

The past few weeks have seen a resurgence of smartphone launches after a long absence. Nothing will change the following week as three brands have new product releases planned.

In the coming days, new phones from Poco, OnePlus, and realme will be unveiled. The latter brand will soon make its debut in China and the Philippines (soon after), while the first two brands will soon announce their new products for the global markets.

POCO X5 Series

On February 6, the Poco X5 series is scheduled to go live worldwide (Monday). A live stream of the lineup announcement will begin at 8 PM GMT+8 on YouTube and other platforms. The Poco X5 and Poco X5 Pro are the two devices that will be part of the series.

They both draw inspiration from the Redmi Note 12 series. The Redmi Note 12 has been modified to create the Poco X5. On the other hand, the Poco X5 Pro is a rebranded version of the Redmi Note 12 Pro Speed Edition, which is only available in China.

It’s interesting to note that India will initially only receive the Pro model, and we anticipate that the Philippines will follow. The regional release of the non-pro model may be delayed.

OnePlus 11 / 11R

The first international event for OnePlus in 2023 is scheduled for February 7 (Tuesday) in New Delhi, India, at 7:30 PM IST. At this conference, the company will reveal the OnePlus 11 and OnePlus 11R smartphones.

The first is currently legal in China. The latter, a brand-new product, will make its Chinese debut on the same day as the OnePlus Ace 2. Three additional devices will be introduced alongside the two smartphones, according to official teasers and leaks.

The business is anticipated to introduce the OnePlus Pad, OnePlus TV 65 Q2 Pro, and OnePlus Buds Pro 2. The OnePlus 11 and OnePlus Buds Pro 2 are both available in China. The final two gadgets, however, are brand-new.

realme GT Neo5

On February 9, China is expected to see the release of the Realme GT Neo 5. (Thursday). Live streaming of the conference will be available on Weibo and other top Chinese video streaming services starting at 2 PM GMT+8.

The phone’s 240W fast-wired charging feature will be its main selling point. Additionally, an IR blaster and led lights will be included. The device will feature a 50MP Sony IMX890 main camera, a 6.74-inch 144Hz OLED display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Plus Gen 1 chipset, LPDDR5 RAM, and UFS 3.1 storage.
