OnePlus 8 series is getting massive discounts, Apple Watch and other accessories are also on sale

Moto RAZR 5G is $400 off, Sony phones and more devices are on sale

The official news today begin with deals. I find it funny that Apple would never give out deals for their products on their website, but that isn’t stopping Amazon. They currently have M1 MacBook Pro that I’m using for 100 dollars off, leaving the entry level variant for 1200 bucks shipped. The Moto RAZR 5G is also 400 dollars off, leaving it at 1000 bucks… and I know, for that price I want it too, but you better not like photos to justify the purchase. Moving on to Best Buy for a second, the Apple Watch Series 6 Nike Edition is currently 50 bucks off, leaving it at 379 but, you can also get a 100 dollar discount on the Series 5, leaving that one for 299. Samsung’s Spring Event is still going on, where you can get the Galaxy S21 for 100 bucks, the S21+ for 300, or the Ultra for 500 if you have an eligible device for trade-in. We also have deals for Jabra earbuds, which for those asking, are my favorites for running, along with more deals on OnePlus devices and other products in the links in the description.


Google prepping affordable ‘Pixel Buds A’ whose details just got leaked

Since we already began sort of talking wearables, let’s shift the spotlight on to Google and what the company plans to do here. It’s been almost a year since Google released the true wireless Pixel Buds and it looks like they want to refresh them in a more affordable way. According to a new report from 9to5Google these will be called the Pixel Buds A, you know like the Pixel 4a. They will apparently have the same design to the Pixel Buds but with a few colorway tweaks. When it comes to the features, they’ll offer support for touch controls for you to answer calls, of course control music playback and summon the Google assistant but, it is still unclear as to what corners Google will be cutting in order to make these cheaper. Finally, the report mentions that we could expect these some time around June or earlier so, let’s see but, with Google you never know.

OnePlus reveals why its first smartwatch doesn’t run Wear OS, and it’s no surprise

Now let’s talk about another wearable that decided to ditch Google, for all the right reasons. OnePlus finally launched their first smartwatch last week and we’re still waiting on it but, there’s a ton of people asking over the fact that it doesn’t run WearOS. Well, the company’s Product Manager just wrote in an official forum that the fact that they chose their RTOS system over WearOS is because of the ability to offer better and longer battery life to their users which is totally understandable. They also note that RTOS allows them to use what they call “high frame rate debugging experience, which allowed them to raise the display’s capacity to 50Hz, giving you a smoother experience. So yeah, in case you missed it this new Watch features a 1.39-inch AMOLED display along with a 402 mAh battery that lasts up to 14 days with regular usage, or 5 days when sleep and blood oxygen is measured. And sure, I know some of you are concerned about third party apps, but let’s be serious, how many of you actually use more than one app on WearOS? They’re mostly trash.

Apple’s Mixed Reality headset might be unveiled much sooner than expected

Moving on, let’s talk about Apple’s Mixed Reality headset. At first I felt there were just too many rumors for how far away we are from a possible launch, but now things start making sense. Even with all the rumors of 8k displays and eye-tracking technology, that possible launch in 2022 made it sound like vapor wear. Well, now we have a new report from Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman that claims that “we could expect it sometime in the next several months, with this being their first major ‘new’ device since 2015”. Apparently it won’t happen at WWDC as Cupertino wants to make such announcement with employees, partners, and the media being present in the room and WWDC is set as an online event. However, they promised some insight on their platforms and they could introduce what they’ve been doing with AR and VR. So far we’ve heard from sources like Ming Chi Kuo that this headset could weigh around 150 grams, it’ll bring around 15 camera modules, a mesh headband and everything else we’ve already heard, so we’ll see.

Story of the day:

iPhone 13 Pro Max will stand out with its upgraded wide angle camera: Kuo

And Finally, for the hottest news today,.. NO we won’t be talking about that cheese grater iPhone.. Yes, we saw the patents, but come on.. I doubt that’ll happen, or at least not any time soon. Let’s focus on what we should expect this year with a new report from Ming Chi Kuo on the iPhone 13 Pro Max, or 12s, or whatever. Up until now, all of the reports we’ve been getting claim that the smaller iPhone 13 Pro will bring the iPhone 12 Pro Max’s camera along with software and hardware improvements like the 7 element lenses so, it left us wondering what upgrades the 13 Pro Max would be getting. According to Kuo’s latest report, the iPhone 13 Pro Max will make an interesting jump to a brighter and faster f/1.5 aperture on the main sensor, and this will differentiate it as it seems the rest of the 13 series will stick to an f/1.6 aperture on the primary camera. The thing is, I’m not sure if it’ll translate into better photos, because as it stands, the 12 Pro Max just takes photos slightly faster, and not really better. If anything aperture that sharp makes closeups a problem. Now as for quality, Kuo also mentions that all models will bring that 7P lens which improves light transmission rate, that can translate to better image quality. The shipment for these lenses is expected to begin in Q2 of 2021 so, some time soon. Other than this we’ve heard that most of the camera upgrades will include better wide angles and telephotos as well as your typical software upgrades.

Motorola has teased the upcoming Moto RAZR 5G in a new poster

We are getting closer to the launch of the new Moto RAZR 5G, less than a week away if we want to be more specific. The device would first launch globally on September 9, with a second event taking place the next day to target the Chinese market. This second event is now being teased on a poster that was recently posted by Motorola, using its upcoming devices to set the date.

We have new information concerning the Moto RAZR 5G. However, this time, the first teaser comes directly from Motorola, as the company has posted a new poster on the Chinese microblogging site Weibo. The poster shows several RAZR devices placed together to form 9.10, which corresponds to the date in which Motorola will release the new RAZR 5G in the Chinese market.

We have also seen several leaked images of the Moto RAZR 5G in the last couple of days. Maybe the best images come from Twitter user Ishan Agarwal who posted an image where the device is captured in almost every possible angle.

Other rumors claim that this new device will arrive with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 processor, better than the Snapdragon 710 chip found in its predecessor. The new foldable is also expected to include 8GB of RAM with 256GB of storage under the hood, with a 2,845 mAh battery to power the device with possible 18W fast charging support and a slightly larger display.

Further, the Moto RAZR 5G should also come equipped with a single camera that’s expected to be the 48MP Samsung ISOCELL GM1, while the new selfie camera would come with a 20MP sensor. The device will come with sub-6GHz 5G network support, which may not be as fast as nnWave 5G, but at least you will be able to find coverage much easier as you move from place to place. You can also check out the leak of AT&T’s version of the foldable phone, as it shows a detailed diagram of the device.

New leaked images of the alleged Moto RAZR 5G look hot

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

It seems that we have the first leaked images of what could be the new Moto RAZR 5G. These images come from a well-known leaker, so it might just be the real design of the device. Now, what’s even better is that this device is supposed to launch in 2020.

Evan Blass has recently posted some images of what could be the new Moto RAZR 5G on his Patreon. The new “Odyssey” clamshell foldable comes with some interesting changes while retaining some key elements. Maybe the most important differences are found in the phone’s smaller chin and the fact that we cant see a fingerprint reader, which could mean that we may get face detection on the Moto RAZR 5G or that Motorola decided to change the fingerprint reader’s location.

This new Moto RAZR is supposed to arrive with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 765 processor, 8GB RAM, 256GB storage, a 2,845mAh battery, 48MP main shooter, a 20MP selfie camera and 5G support. Evan Blass described this device as the “Motorola RAZR 2020,” suggesting that it may launch this year, even though the current COVID-19 pandemic may push the device’s presentation until early 2021.
