The official news starts today with OPPO because I’m sure you’ve seen our colleagues’ wild videos. Gee thank you for the delay of my DHL package. Cant tell you what great service you have. Anyway, expect our video to be out soon. At the moment, the company has just launched the OPPO Find N, its first foldable phone that competes with solutions like the Galaxy Z Fold 3, but kind of. You see, it’s actually much shorter, with an outer display that is 5.49 inches diagonal, 60 Hz, but then it allows for a wider outer panel that feels more like a regular phone. Once unfolded, you can expand it to a 7.1-inch main display with a resolution of 120. Oddly enough, it appears to be a more conventional form factor than the Z Fold 3. As for specs, it’s powered by either the Snapdragon 888, 8 or 12 gig of RAM and up to half a terabyte of storage. Pair this with a 4500mAh battery that supports 33W fast charging. It brings a triple camera array on the back with a 50 MP main sensor, and then you get two 32 MP selfie shooters on both displays. I think one of the most interesting things about this phone is that it has a pretty neat hinge with 136+ components and you can’t see any kinks in it even when it uses Samsung’s Ultra Thin Glass technology. OPPO claims that it is 80% less noticeable than other phones. The reason I said it kind of competes with the Z Fold is that it will be available on December 23rd, but will be exclusive in China. So yeah, it looks pretty cool to be honest, but I’ll let you know one more time my device is arriving.

Let’s get to Cupertino as we were talking about Apple’s 2022 Roadmap for Macs and iPads last week. We heard a little about iMacs, but that got more detailed in some new reviews. According to a new article by Ross Young, we can expect a 27-inch iMac Pro in the spring of 2022 and a more powerful regular iMac between March and June. He claims that this iMac will be equipped with a MiniLED display, a variable refresh rate of 120 Hz and oxide backplanes. These are also likely to be powered by the same M1 Pro and Max chips we got a few months ago, but they will likely have some differences in RAM or something to set them apart from the notebooks. Ross mentioned other devices too, including new OLED iPads and MacBooks, but unfortunately we’ll have to wait until 2023 or 2024 to see these. He also talked about an Apple foldable for the future, but we’re not sure if he’s talking about an iPhone or some other device. Finally, Apple’s AR headset also managed to “make the volume estimates for the next year look low, so the price must be high”. But yeah, apparently we’re getting an iMac Pro in the spring and a more powerful iMac in the summer, so let’s see how the rumors play out.

Let’s keep talking about Apple, but let’s get to the iPhone 14 and one of the strangest leak cycles we’ve ever seen. We have a new research note from Jeff Pu claiming that the Pro models for the iPhone 14 bring a triple camera on the back with a 48MP main sensor and then two 12MP sensors for the ultra wide angle and telephoto lens . He added that the Pro models will bring 8 gigs of RAM instead of the 6 gigs we got with the 13, throwing the whole leak out the window. Finally, he adds that all four iPhone 14 models will have a 120Hz display, but we’re going to look at this with caution, considering that sources like Ross Young mention that these stay at 60Hz, which is what Apple sounds much more like it. The reason I say this is one of the weirdest leak cycles we’ve ever seen is because most of these reports are in line with reports we’ve heard before from Ming Chi Kuo and other sources who use this 48MP camera mentioned having 8K video recording support all the way back in April. They also agree that the Mini will be ditched in favor of an iPhone 14 Max, which would be the same size as the Pro Max. So yeah, given the amount of leaks we saw so early, let’s see what we get in the end since we are still almost a year away.

And finally, for the hottest news today, let’s talk about Samsung and the Galaxy S22 series as the leaks keep getting better and more realistic .. Starting with a couple of tweets from Ice Universe, he shared some screenshots showing the screen resolution for this one confirm devices. The S22 and its Plus variant will be 2340 x 1080 with an aspect ratio of 19.5 x 9, while the Ultra will offer a 3088 x 1440 display with an aspect ratio of 19.3 x 9. Ice also retweeted some screenshots of dummies for the entire S22 series in black and white colorways that honestly look pretty good. But to add that, OnLeaks posted a 37 second video of the entire dummy showing both sides of the phones. As expected, the base models look just like the Galaxy S21 series, but these bring a glossy back instead of the matte finish we got this year. The Ultra offers that matte finish and we can see the boxier design with the new recessed camera array and that seriously looks like what the Note 21 Ultra could have been. And yes, the dummy also brings the slot for the S Pen downstairs, so that’s to come. Samsung’s support pages for the three models are already available on their website, which means we’re closer to getting started. So high-end specs, slight changes to the smaller variants and the merging of the Note with the S line for the Ultra after years of leaks.
