Xiaomi Mi Mix 4 with under-display camera might launch next week

Of course, ZTE fired the opening salvo last year with the Axon 20 5G and fired another round with the Axon 30 5G last month. Samsung is also rumored to be jumping on that bandwagon with the Galaxy Z Fold 3, and OPPO already revealed its third-gen under-screen camera (USC) prototype.

Time to trash your old Android phones

Google sent out a note this week about some of the oldest Android devices, saying they'll cut off service soon. If you have an Android device that's a certain age or older - or more specifically, running a very old version of Android - it may finally be time to accept that it's no longer worth keeping in your dresser drawer.
