OPPO Find X3 series launch for March 11th
Let’s stick with the official news as it looks like we’re facing a busy March starting with OPPO. We have been looking at Find X3 series leaks for a while, including launch dates. And now we have the right deal. The company took to Twitter to send out press invitations for a March 11 event. There are no secrets here as they title the OPPO Find X3 Series Launch Event, but it is entitled “Awaken Color”. The last piece most likely alludes to the 6.7-inch OLED display we expected, which supposedly has some impressive features. We’re expecting 3 phones, but when we talk about the Find X3 Pro we’ve heard that this phone runs on the Snapdragon 888 SoC, which is a 4500mAh battery, Android 11 is ready to go, and comes in a single variant with 12 GB RAM and 256 GB storage. When it comes to cameras, rumors point to a triple camera array with a new 50-megapixel main lens from Sony, which should cost around 1000 euros. We’ll see what we can get in a few days.
OnePlus 9 Pro Leak predicts support for 4K video recording at 120 FPS
OnePlus 9/9 Pro color options were announced ahead of the supposed March launch
OnePlus 9 series, OnePlus Watch launch date is March 23
When we talk about the things we’re going to get in March, let’s put OnePlus in the spotlight as we have a lot to do today. Starting with the date, they posted a new tweet this morning with an image showing the surface of the moon and the distant earth with the caption “Something new is on the horizon”. The tweet tells us to stay tuned for March 8th and according to some tipsters, on that particular date we will get the official date for the event, which is supposedly March 23rd. We are currently expecting 3 phones from OnePlus for the 9 series, including the OnePlus 9R or Lite, 9 and 9 Pro. Another tipster also shared the color options that we should receive and that vary depending on the wearer. To name just the variants that have been unlocked: The regular 9 contains Astral Black, Arctic Sky and Winter Mist, while the 9 Pro contains Stellar Black, Forest Green and Morning Mist. Finally, we also have a new leak in the camera functions. According to the tip, the OnePlus 9 Pro can record 8K videos and 4K videos at 120 FPS. Nice boost compared to the 4K at 60 we got with the 8 Pro. The new camera setup should include a 50-megapixel main sensor from Sony as well as a 48-megapixel wide angle. And I mean, we’re already in March, so leaks should be pretty busy for the next few weeks.
Kuo predicts a foldable iPhone could arrive in 2023
Apple will punch “some iPhones” in 2022: Kuo
The iPhone SE will be updated with a faster chip and 5G support in 2022: report
Finally, for the hottest news today, part one because this has been an issue lately, let’s talk about Apple. Let’s start with the future Apple products, that is, next year and beyond, and leave the last segment for the things we expect this year. Yes, Ming Chi Kuo raged yesterday over things we should expect from Apple soon and not so soon. Let’s start with the iPhone SE as we heard some rumors that we would get a new model sometime this year, but according to Kuo, that update won’t happen until 2022. According to his prediction, it will rock the same design as the current SE, which means the iPhone 8 is a bit of a let down considering it already feels pretty dated. It will of course be equipped with the latest A-Chip and bring 5G support. However, rumors still linger about the iPhone SE Plus, which has apparently been delayed for the second half of this year. On another point, Kuo also claims that some iPhones could have a hole-and-hole design next year, and claims that all 2022 models could use the design if production yields are good enough. This means that Apple either found a way to hide Face ID under the display, or that we are sticking with Touch ID. Finally, let’s talk about foldable, as Kuo mentions that the foldable panel will measure around 20.5 and 8 inches when it arrives sometime in 2023. However, he claims that this project has not “officially started” yet, which means there may be tons of changes in a project and it probably couldn’t even happen.
According to reports, Apple will NOT be introducing USB-C for iPhones anytime soon
iPhone 13 series for a smaller notch, a larger battery, and improved camera technology: Kuo
Finally, for the hottest news today, Part 2 … all over again. This is a very strong coffee that Kuo took a sip of because he also got involved in other things that we can expect from this year’s iPhones. First, let’s talk about USB-C. According to the report, they claim that USB-C is hurting the profitability of their iPhone program, but its waterproof specification is actually lower than that of Lightning and MagSafe. So if Apple Lightning gives up, they could go straight to opting for a portless MagSafe iPhone instead of using USB-C. What I mean it makes sense I think we just hope MagSafe gets better. Moving on to the actual iPhones, Kuo is repeating some rumors we heard before and it just gives us some reassurance. He claims that the entire iPhone 13 family will support a smaller notch of the same width but will get thinner as Cupertino rearranges the face ID sensors. Kuo mentions that both professionals will get a refresh rate of 120 Hz with this new LTPO display. Speaking of professionals: The LiDAR sensor will apparently only be reserved for these two for the time being. Apparently, all iPhone 13 models will also feature sensor-shift image stabilization technology, with further improvements to the cameras. We’ll also get Qualcomm’s new Snapdragon X60 5G modem, bigger batteries, and again no USB-C.
