Week 36 in review: iPhone 13 event set for next week, vivo X70 series official
Another week done, so let’s recap. Apple will unveil its iPhone 13 series on September 14, that’s next Tuesday. We’ll cover the whole thing and we expect the announcement of the iPhone 13, 13 mini, 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max.
A retailer revealed the upcoming iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13 will arrive in six colors: black, blue, purple, pink, white, and Product RED. The mini will be available in both 64GB and 128GB storage options. Meanwhile, the iPhone 13 will arrive in either 128GB or 256GB. The iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max will arrive in four, more conservative colors: black, silver, gold, and bronze. The Pro will come in either 128GB or 256GB storage options while the Max will come in 256GB and 512GB variants.
We even saw supposed renders of next year’s iPhone 14 Pro Max, showing no notch but a punch hole camera as well as a flush camera island on the rear.
Tecno’s Spark 8 is coming to India next week, as per our sources.
A word on Pixel phones. Firstly Google put out an official video teaser of the Pixel 6 and we got wind that the duo – Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, may launch on October 19.
Then there’s the Pixel 3. Many reports suggest that the Pixel 3 and 3 XL have started bricking overnight. Google is yet to address the reported issue with a fix and there’s no clear-cut reason for the bricking. Some hypothesize it’s due to a recent security update.
vivo’s X70 series were unveiled this week. The X70 Pro+ has a SD888+ chip and a custom V1 image processing chip. It does processing for the 50MP wide, 8MP 5x periscope tele, 12MP 2x tele and 48MP ultrawide. The vivo X70 Pro+ will be available in China later this month starting at CNY 5,500 ($850/€720) for the base 8/256GB model.
The vivo X70 Pro uses an Exynos 1080 chipset, 50MP main camera, 12MP ultrawide, 12MP 2x tele and 8MP 5x periscope zoom. The vanilla X70 uses a Dimensity 1200, 40MP main camera, 12MP ultrawide and 12MP 2x tele.
See you in a week!
This is the iPhone 14 that’s supposed to be launching a year from now, that’s not a typo.
It’s powered by the Helio P22 SoC and packs a 5,000 mAh battery.
The issue has been going on for months now.
Will likely also announce the next generation Apple Watch.
Edit: after close inspection, the date displayed on the Pixel phones is “Tuesday 19”.
The iPhone 13 and 13 mini will come in six colors while the Pro models will be offered in four.
The first time we saw a periscope on an Infinix was the concept phone that demonstrated the company’s 160W fast charging system.
It is called “Real Folding Window” and implements new materials and coating technologies.
Other improvements include 50W wireless fast charging, slightly bigger and an IP68 rating. The screen is bigger too, a 6.78″ Samsung E5 panel.
The P12 Pro is bigger and much more powerful than the P11 Pro (SD730, 11.5″).
Verizon and China Telecom do not want the Snapdragon 898.
The phone appeared on Samsung India’s website.
Some fans weren’t sure which is the right account to follow, since ours isn’t marked as verified. Here is what happened.
And that’s 720 Hz with multiple fingers, the original 6 Pro could only do 360 Hz. The cooling has been beefed up with phase change materials.
This is the company’s first such concrete update promise.
It’s rumored to come with the Snapdragon 778G chip.
It covers an arc of 100º and can handle obstructions such as your hand, pocket or case.
We’ve done some calculations of how well different content fits on their screens, e.g. a 4:3 photo, a 16:9 video and so on.
It is powered by a Helio G80 chipset and brings a 7,100 mAh battery.
It’s the Pixel 5a’s first software update.
The newest member of TCL’s ever-expanding 20 family is the cheapest one yet.
This also means that stable Android 12 is just around the corner.
