Xiaomi has delayed the launch of the new Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha
Do you remember the Xiaomi Mi Mix Alpha? You know, the phone with the 180% screen to body ratio. The phone never got a release date but many reports claimed that it could launch on January 2020. A new report from Abacus notes that the phone is being delayed until further notice but that the company wants to release some information about it as soon as possible which doesn’t really tell us anything.

New leaks of a Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite powered on
We have some images of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Lite booting up. The phone actually has a stove at the back that resembles the one on the Google Pixel 4, it has a centered punch hole and we can also see the S Pen in these pictures.

We could expect a new notchless iPhone in 2020 with in-display Touch ID
First we had a report from Ming Chi Kuo that we could see a notch-less iPhone with Touch ID and Face ID until 2021. Then we got a Bloomberg report that said we could get an iPhone with Touch ID but retain the notch for Face ID.

Story of the day:
We may get the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 before the Galaxy S11
A new report claims that Samsung could take advantage of the Moto RAZR’s delay and launch the Samsung Galaxy Fold 2 along with the Galaxy S11 and go on sale the same day. They want to take the opportunity to have the first foldable clamshell on the market. The report mentions that it won’t be as powerful as other flagships, pretty much like the RAZR but the price tag will be under the $1000 mark. Some other leaks include the 108MP camera and 5x optical zoom which will also be on the Galaxy S11.
