Samsung Galaxy Watch 3 support page goes live, launch imminent

You could get your new Samsung Galaxy Note 20 on August 21

The leaks for Unpacked keep coming in as we get closer but, it looks like Samsung is ready for the event. The support pages for the Galaxy Watch 3 are ready on Samsung’s Indian website. The page reveals the model numbers which are similar to the Watch Active 2 and those were previously leaked. However, moving on to the Note, according to a new Korean report, the Note 20 will be available for purchase on August 21. The Unpacked Event is expected to happen on August 5th and if you take into account what happened last year, it got revealed on the 7th and spent a couple of weeks on pre-order so this timeline makes sense. This availability date is for the Korean market but, we assume it will be somewhat similar for us. The report also mentions that the S20 Lite, the LG Wing and a mystery device which we’ll mention in a couple of segments will be released in October.

Amazon slip-up reveals July 21 launch for OnePlus Nord

We’ve been praising OnePlus for their Nord marketing campaign but it looks like Amazon just spilled the beans on them. We’ve seen the design and the name leaked by OnePlus but, an Amazon India page just revealed that the OnePlus Nord will launch on July 21 and then the page was quickly pulled. The page showed a teaser of the device which said “Made to be experienced on July 21st” and it would take you to the OnePlus URL for this phone which… isn’t live yet. We’ll keep you posted as, we’re expecting to hear from OnePlus with the official launch date soon.

Here’s a size comparison of iPhone 12 models based on dummies for case makers

And that mystery device that was mentioned on the Korean report to launch in October is the iPhone 12. The timeline for this phone is very confusing but October sounds reasonable, even with the rumored delays. Now, we have some new dummy images and even a video of the new iPhones. These dummies certainly look better than the ones we got before and now we get them compared to older iPhones. He does mention in the video that these dummies are made for case makers so that’s why the cameras look like the ones on the 11 Pro and the 11, with no LiDAR sensor, as well as the same notch. We also have some pictures posted to the MacRumors forums where we can see the 5.4in iPhone 12 Pro compared to the old iPhone SE and an iPhone 7. It’s obviously bigger than the SE but it is slightly smaller than the iPhone 7 which has some people excited.

Samsung’s next foldable will reportedly be called Galaxy Z Fold 2

Let’s get back to Unpacked. We’re expecting the successor to the Galaxy Fold to be announced but apparently, the name is about to change. According to SamMobile, Samsung will dub the new Fold the “Galaxy Z Fold 2″. If you think about it, it kind of makes sense because Samsung apparently wants to unify all of their foldable products under the Z letter. According to them, the “Z” branding “intuitively communicates the idea of a foldable product while delivering a dynamic and youthful feel”. The Fold 2 is expected to bring new batteries which add up to 4365 mAh, a new UTG glass, the Snapdragon 865, along with the S20+’s camera array with that new design we covered a few weeks ago. Even though the naming makes sense, we’re just wondering why they didn’t unify their foldable products under the Fold name like the Note because, what else could portray the idea of a foldable product better than the word Fold?

Story of the day:

New leak reveals alleged renders of the Google Pixel 5

And, by this point you know the story, we’ve been waiting on the Pixel 4a for ages and naturally, Pixel 5 leaks are now starting to emerge. We have some new CAD renders that allegedly belong to the Google Pixel 5 and they kinda look like if the Pixel 4 and the 4a leaks had a baby which, makes sense. If you even think of it, they look a lot like the leaks of the Pixel 4A XL that was reportedly canceled. Now, the source claims that the phone is still in the works so these aren’t final CAD renders. The first thing you notice is that the whole radar module at the front is gone and it was replaced with the punch hole that we’re expecting for the 4a which means that the capacitive fingerprint scanner is back. An odd move at a time when fingerprint scanners are all on the display. Speaking of the back, it looks like we might be getting only two cameras again even though we have no word on that just yet. Also, remember that this phone might be more of a mid-ranger so, we’re expecting for it to bring a Snapdragon 765, and the display will be a 5.78in QHD OLED.

Google is finally implementing 64-bit architecture for Chrome on Android

Yes, there is no denying that Chrome is the most popular web browser in the world.. I mean hey, it’s even got its own operating system. The problem is that it’s not necessarily the most up to the latest standards. 64-bit architecture on Android was announced pretty much half a decade ago and well, let’s just say it’s still something Google hasn’t really handled well. We know that Chrome has been stuck on 32-bit but it looks like they’re finally ready to move on. Android Police just spotted that the Chrome 85 and 86 dev build that they are listed as 64 bit apps. Thing is, there’s a catch:b it will only be available on devices running Android 10 and later. Google announced last year that they will be phasing all of their 32-bit apps by August 2021 and this just shows that they’re on track.

Samsung briefly listed the upcoming Galaxy Tab S7+ 5G on its official website

Like seriously, if there’s someone I trust when it comes to Samsung leaks, it’s Samsung. At this point we’re not really surprised when Samsung leak their own products through their European websites. This time, Samsung Germany listed the Galaxy Tab S7+ 5G on their website and as per usual, it was quickly pulled. Other than that this listing didn’t reveal much but we did get some leaked specs for the S7 line last month and they included a 12.4in AMOLED display, the S Pen will now be magnetically attached to the back and it will be aligned with the new dual camera module. On the front side, it looks kinda similar to the latest iPads and the selfie camera has been moved to the side so you can use it while the tablet is on landscape mode.

LG could give us the first rollable smartphone next year

LG has been reluctant to hop on the foldable phone trend and have opted to go for dual-displays instead. Now, it looks like the company is finally ready to join but in a different way. Last year we got some patents of a roll-able phone and according to a new Korean report, LG is working on bringing this device to the market in early 2021. It’s currently called Project B and the prototype is already under production, but get this.. They’re using a BOE display. The report also mentions that LG might release their phone as they have been losing money on their mobile division and some innovation might help them get out of this slump. We’re expecting LG to release this phone, a “horizontal device codenamed Wing” and a “traditional looking” flagship in Q1 of 2021.

Here’s an official sneak peek at the OnePlus Nord’s design

We’re expecting the OnePlus Nord to launch some time next week so naturally, the hype is ramping up. OnePlus just put out a new teaser on their Instagram account and we get to see the actual phone. The trailer focuses on the past and staying true to who you are, probably hinting to OnePlus going back to their roots with their “New Beginnings”. Then towards the end of the video you can see the phone going into a pocket but if you freeze it we can see the camera module which looks pretty much like the renders we got months ago. It has the OnePlus logo in the center and it comes in that Blue color variant we’ve been expecting. There’s another picture where you can see the front of the phone but we can’t really see the dual selfie cameras but we saw those a couple of days ago in the other teaser. Here’s the thing. Regardless of the teaser, can we just give props to OnePlus for this marketing campaign. It’s totally achieving the interest they’re look for.

Story of the day:

Apple wants to know what you do with “in the box” iPhone chargers

The iPhone 12 could feature Largan camera lenses

And finally, the hottest news today have to do with Apple. So Monday we talked about the lack of a Charger, and Tuesday we talked about the camera.. Today, we have a couple of confirmations, so let’s begin with the later. We have new Ming Chi Kuo report where he claims that the iPhone 12 will bring some new “high-end” 8-element lens arrays to improve image quality. These premium camera lenses will be supplied by company called Largan and will start shipping in a couple of weeks. Production has reportedly been delayed by 6 weeks, meaning we’ll see production reach its peak by September-November instead of the usual August-October. Anyways, as for the second topic, if you wanted any confirmation that Apple is removing the charger on the iPhone 12, wait no more. Apple is sending out surveys to people in Brazil on what they do with their older chargers,.. yeah you heard that right. Now, so far the survey has only been found in Brazil so it may be limited right now, or it might be a regional thing, but it asked what the user did with his previous iPhone 7 charger, asking if he recycled it, gave it to a family member or friend or if he still has it and uses it. Now, we’re not 100% sure if Apple will remove the charger this year but if this survey is real, it looks like it’s happening.

The iPhone 12 could feature Largan camera lenses

We get more information about the new iPhone 12 series. We recently found out that Apple is making a survey concerning the 5W chargers that come with iPhones. We have also heard that we may get smaller boxes and no more EarPods or chargers in the box with the next 12 lineups. Now, the latest rumor comes from Ming-Chi Kuo, who believes that Apple’s new iPhones will come with a killer camera. 

It seems that we may get improved cameras with the new iPhone 12 lineup. Ming-Chi Kuo believes that these devices will feature a “high-end lens array that will improve image quality. These premium camera lenses should be supplied by Largan from mind-July. Apple usually gets these components earlier, but Apple’s production has reportedly been delayed by four to six weeks in the second half of 2022, which means we should see the most shipments between September and November.

Kuo doesn’t mention a possible cause for this delay, but he also mentions more camera improvements in the iPhone 12, which include a larger sensor that would capture more light and give us better image quality.

Apple wants to know what you do with “in the box” iPhone chargers

Recent rumors suggest that Apple may want to give us a new iPhone12 series without EarPods or a power adapter in the box. Some leakers have even claimed that the new box would be thinner, and more exquisite since it won’t need the extra space. Now, Apple may also want to hear its users before making a final decision.

It seems that Apple has started a survey to know what people do with the 5W chargers that are included with the purchase of every iPhone. The survey contains several options for users to choose from, which include:
I sold or traded it with my iPhone
I lost it
I gave it to a family member or friend
I still use it at home
I still use it outside (at work, school, or other places)
I still have it, but I don’t use it
This survey was shared by Twitter user @Gunstaxl, where he says, “Apple survey that I received by email. Multiple questions about how I use the charger! Will we have an iPhone without a charger in the box?”

The survey hasn’t reached every Apple user, or at least not yet. But what about you? What do you do with the 5W power adapter that comes with your iPhone?

Apple may be preparing supply chain ready for future mini-LED devices

It's only fair to share...Share on RedditShare on FacebookShare on Google+Tweet about this on TwitterPin on PinterestShare on Tumblr

We have been getting more rumors and predictions about Apple working on launching future iPad Pro and MacBook Pro models with mini-Led technology. Now, the latest report from DigiTimes claims that Cupertino is already adding more companies to its supply chain to make flexible printed circuit boards for its future mini-LED devices.

“Both firms are expected to start small-volume shipments of mini LED-backlit modules in the fourth quarter of 2020 to support the launch of new ‌iPad Pro‌ in the first quarter of 2021, the sources said. As such modules are likely to become standard specs for diverse new iPads and MacBooks, Zhen Ding and Flexium can secure a new profitable outlet for their flexible boards, the sources noted.”

We get new reports from DigiTimes claiming that, according to industry sources, Apple has added Taiwan’s Zhen Ding Technology and Flexium Interconnect to its supply chain to make parts for its future mini-LED iPad Pro and MacBook Pros. They would be competing with Young Poong Electronics to get a larger part of the required, flexible boards. DigiTimes also claims that we could see these new devices next year, as a new 12.9-inch iPad Pro with mini-LED technology and 5G could arrive sometime in Q1 2021. We are also expecting to get new MacBook Pros with mini-LED panels, a 16-inch refresh and a new 14.1-inch version next year.

Apple Card now has a web portal to pay bills and view account statement

Apple has launched a website (card.apple.com) for Apple Card users that acts as a dashboard for them to manage their account activity. The new Apple Card web portal allows users to check their account details and pay their monthly installment bills online. 

The dashboard lets Apple Card users check their account balance and also see how much credit they still have left, aside from paying their bills. There are separate tabs for Payments, Installments, and Statements in the left pane of the dashboard. Earlier, the only way to do all this was through Apple’s Wallet app for iPhones. 

Users can sign in to the new Apple Card web dashboard with their Apple ID. Finally having a website will prove to be quite convenient for users if they lose access to the Wallet app due to reasons such as the phone running out of juice, malfunctioning device, or simply having misplaced it.

The announcement and launch will happen on July 7th at 12PM and the phone will be an exclusive for India.

Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 5G’s TENAA listing reveals a new color option

It seems that Samsung won’t attend the next IFA 2020

We’re getting closer and closer to Unpacked and logically most of these devices are going through specifications. The Galaxy Z Flip 5G recently went through a TENAA certification which revealed some of the specs we covered earlier like the dual batteries that add up to 3204 mAh and the 15W fast charging. On this certification we can tell that the Z Flip 5G comes in a new gray color variant which wasn’t on the original Z Flip. We have some new renders from Twitter showing the color variant and it will apparently rock new AG Glass Tech for a matte finish. Moving on from that, we know that IFA will still happen this year but in an unorthodox way and it looks like Samsung won’t be attending. According to a South Korean publication, Sammy wants to avoid mass gatherings and complications due to the pandemic. There isn’t any official statement yet but if that is the case we should get it soon.

Qualcomm confirms the chipset used on the OnePlus Nord

OnePlus has done a great job at teasing their upcoming smartphone the OnePlus Nord which, still isn’t in my pocket, stop looking at me funny! However, one of the things that wasn’t clear from the leaks was the processo. Well, the company just tweeted out “You asked and we delivered” on their UK account and non other than Qualcomm quoted the tweet to say that they are excited to work with OnePlus on their New Beginnings which will be powered by the Snapdragon 765G processor. We’re still waiting on episode 2 of the documentary but, we’re expecting this phone to launch some time around early July and costing around $350.

iPhone 12 Pro might not offer a 120Hz display after all

iPhone 12 to arrive with nothing more than a thinner box and a cable

iPhone 12 lineup is facing mass production delays, again

We know, the iPhone 12’s time line has been a mess, one day we hear that it’s significantly delayed and the next we hear that it’s back on track and we will get it on time. Today is no different as we have a new Nikkei Asian report saying that there might even be months of delays when it comes to mass production but Apple is doing everything they can to shorten the postponement. Apparently some of the iPhone assembly could be delayed until early October so it wouldn’t be surprising if we got more delays down the road. Ming Chi Kuo also reported yesterday that the mmWave iPhones would be delayed due to some changes to the antenna package. On a separate note, a tipster on Twitter claims that the iPhone 12’s box will be “thinner and quite exquisite this year“, after you know, they get rid of the charger and the EarPods. Finally, DSSC’s Ross Young just put out a new 120Hz device list for the rest of this year and he says none of their contacts can confirm that the iPhone 12 will bring a 120Hz display so they are off the list. This doesn’t mean they are completely off the table but, it’s not a good sign.

Story of the day:

Samsung just accidentally leaked the Galaxy Note 20, and it looks stunning

And finally, the hottest news of the day have to do with the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series. I mean, we’ve had concept renders, case leaks and stuff, though nothing really official, but you know we’ve been waiting for Samsung to spill the beans, as it wouldn’t be the first time.. And well, today is the day. Samsung Russia accidentally uploaded a picture of the Note 20 to their website showing off the new camera array, the new S Pen and the leaked copper color variant which will apparently be called “Mystic Bronze”. This time we get a triple camera array that still includes a periscope lens, it’s just not apart from the others like we got with the S20 Ultra. The 100X text is now gone along with the ToF sensor which will be replaced with laser autofocus. We weren’t able to see the display but we’re still expecting it to bring a centered punch hole with smaller bezels than the ones we got on last year’s Note.

iPhone 12 lineup is facing mass production delays, again

We have received several reports claiming that Apple’s iPhone 12 mass production will face delays. Some rumors even claimed that the devices were going to launch until 2021, but this last one is a bit more optimistic.

“What the progress looks like now is months of delay in terms of mass production, but Apple is doing everything it can to shorten the postponement. There’s a chance that the schedule could still be moved ahead,” one source told Nikkei.

“Some final iPhone assembly could be delayed to early October, and it wouldn’t be surprising if there are further delays because there are still a lot of tests going on now and the final designs have not yet been locked down.”

According to a new report from Nikkei Asian Review, mass production of the upcoming iPhone 12 lineup may be delayed anywhere between four weeks and two months. This delay wouldn’t affect Apple’s launch plans, even though we may have to wait for the new iPhone’s availability. More rumors suggest that Apple has asked suppliers to build more iPhone XR, iPhone 11, and iPhone SE units, more than 45 million units combined, in case the 5G iPhones take longer to arrive.

iPhone 12 Pro might not offer a 120Hz display after all

We’ve previously reported that the iPhone 12 Pro will feature a silky smooth OLED display with a 120Hz refresh rate, citing two reliable sources. Well, one of them now claims that a 120Hz display is indeed happening, but the iPhone 12 Pro won’t be the first one to flaunt it.

Ross Young, the founder of Display Supply Chain Consultants (DSCC), has mentioned in a tweet that none of his contacts could verify a 120Hz display on the iPhone 12 Pro. Notably though, they suggested the 2021 iPhone lineup as the possible candidate for using such a high refresh rate display.

As for the iPhone 12 Pro itself, it will reportedly feature a 6.7-inch Samsung-made Super Retina XDR OLED display and will have the Bionic A14 chipset at its heart. It is said to pack three rear cameras and a LiDAR sensor, and will latch on to both mmWave and sub-6GHz 5G bands.

Qualcomm announces Snapdragon Wear 4100 Platforms for wearables

Qualcomm just announced their new Snapdragon War 4100 and 4100+ platforms for the future of smartwatches. It’s built on a hybrid 12nm architecture, down from the 28nm from last year. This new architecture includes a higher performance SoC with improved CPU, GPU, Memory, Cellular Modem and camera sub systems. Basically the difference between the two is that the 4100+ is a big processor with the same small co-processor we saw on the 3100, while the 4100 is just a big processor. Some of the new features promised include Super-Fast Performance and Connectivity, a dedicated LTE mode, a Smarter Always On Display with far more colors. We have all of the specifics in the links in the description.

Microsoft might unveil the cheaper Xbox Series S console in August

It’s no secret that the PS5 made a bunch of headlines this month after they revealed the design but, we didn’t get a price tag and we’re assuming it’s going to be kinda hefty. Now, we’ve known that Microsoft will most likely have the upper hand when it comes to actual performance of the Series X but we’re also assuming that price tag will be heft as well. Apparently Microsoft is working on a more affordable console which is codenamed “Lockhart” and will reportedly debut as the Xbox Series “S”. The codename came from some leaked devkit documents but now a new report claims that this more affordable console will be announced in August. According to the leaks, this console will aim at 1080p and 1440p gaming instead of the 4K we’ll be getting from the Series X. It will bring the same CPU as the Series X but it will pack less usable RAM and a less powerful GPU. We’ll keep you posted.

Google acquires North, the maker of Focals smart glasses

Do you remember Google Glass? Well that didn’t turn out the way Google intended it to and now we’ve been getting a lot of rumors of Apple’s AR Glasses so Google decided to make a move. Mountain View just acquired North, the company behind the Focals 1.0 Smart Glasses. Neither of the two companies have disclosed the financial transaction but Rick Osterloh said in a blog post that North will be merged with Google’s team in Canada. The problem with this is that we won’t be getting the Focals 2.0 and this project is aimed at the long run so we’re not exactly sure about when we’ll get to see some hardware. Let’s just hope it’s Focals handling what’s coming up next and not Google. I mean.. Focals has succeeded, Google hasn’t.

OnePlus’ upcoming budget phone will officially debut as OnePlus Nord

It’s finally June 30 so OnePlus just launched the first episode of their documentary series and it actually reveals a lot of information. First off, the phone will be dubbed as the OnePlus Nord, the company even changed the Instagram account name to “OnePlus.Nord”. On this first episode, Pete Lau announced that this will be the company’s first product under the $500 mark in recent years. He also mentioned that it will be sold in India and Europe and only selected US consumers will be able to get it through a highly limited beta program after the release. We’re not sure if this is an early design but in one of the scenes we see a phone with a flat punch hole display and with dual selfie cameras, pretty much like the leaks. Pre-orders will also be available tomorrow, even if we haven’t really seen the phone. And no, stop looking at me funny, I don’t have the phone yet..

Story of the day:

iPhone 12 will allegedly record 4K videos at 240fps

Don’t expect to find BOE OLED panels in 5G iPhones soon

And finally for the hottest news today, let’s talk iPhone 12. We’ve got two separate leaks, one that’s expected, the other that still has me speechless, and I’m not talking about the lack of a charger, we discussed that yesterday. Let’s start with a follow-up with Apple and BOE displays, or should I say, the lack of a partnership. According to a new DigiTimes report, BOE failed to secure Apple’s validation for these displays. This doesn’t mean that they won’t supply displays at all, it just means that we might get BOE displays on some iPhones until Q4, after the phone is launched. Meanwhile, Samsung and LG will be handling all of the displays until Apple and BOE can iron out their issues. But alright, let me ask you this: Name one consumer grade camera that can film 4K at 240fps. Heck, name one that can film 4K at 120fps. Thing is, we can barely name a handful that can do 4K at 60fps even today. Well on an interesting note, earlier this weekend, EverythingApplePro posted a new video with leaks and predictions for the iPhone 12 line, one of them being an option to record 4K video at 240FPS, and today, according to a tipster on Twitter, there is evidence on the iOS 14 Beta filesystem that mentions this feature, allowing for 4K video at 240FPS native video. Like this is nuts. I still consider any iPhone after the XS to be a great B camera, or good enough for anyone to start a YouTube channel.

Don’t expect to find BOE OLED panels in 5G iPhones soon

We know that Apple has been trying to get OLED panels for its upcoming iPhones 12 lineup from BOE, but it seems that things aren’t going so well. The latest report suggests that we won’t find Chinese OLED displays in the first 5G iPhones.

New information from Digitimes claims that BOE has failed to secure Apple’s approval of its OLED panels. This is not the first time BOE fails to pass quality tests, so this means that we won’t see these displays in the first iPhone 12 shipments. BOE screens are supposed to be included in the more affordable versions of the upcoming 5G iPhones, which include the 5.4-inch and the non-Pro 6.1-inch iPhone 12. BOE’s latest downfall includes quality issues, but it hopes to begin shipping OLED panels to Apple in the last quarter of 2020. However, Apple should still be able to launch its devices in September, as LG Display should have enough displays for these entry-level devices, and Samsung Display takes care of the higher-end 6.1-inch and 6.7-inch Pro and Pro Max variants of the iPhone 12.
