Another week is done, so let’s recap it. Starting with the iPhone 13 and 13 Pro, which will have bigger camera islands, due to their better camera hardware. The entire iPhone 13 series are also going to be slightly thicker.
Asus unveiled the petite Zenfone 8 and the larger Zenfone 8 Flip with a rotating triple camera system. The pair is already available in Europe and Taiwan.
We saw renders of the upcoming Huawei P50 series, which show three camera sensors in one camera ring and a separate one for the rumored 1-inch main camera. Currently the closest to that coveted 1-inch size is the 1/1.12-inch Samsung sensor that adorns the Xiaomi Mi 11 Ultra. The Huawei P50 is expected to have a 13-90mm equivalent camera setup. The renders don’t clearly show a periscope, so we could be looking at a variable-zoom lens, similar to the one on the Sony Xperia 5 III and 1 III.
The Google Pixel 6 series broke cover with a couple of renders of what’s allegedly the Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro. The pair has adopted a unique design with an orange accent color. We see two cameras on the Pixel 6 and three on the Pixel 6 Pro – no word on sensors or specs, but the renders clearly show we shouldn’t expect a periscope.
Sony’s upcoming noise-cancelling earbuds – the WF-1000XM4’s leaked in detailed images, showing both earbuds and the case. The earbuds look more compact than their predecessors. They should arrive on June 9, possibly featuring high-res audio.
Those were the key stories of the week – the full list is below. See you in a week!
The Zenfone 8 is smaller than the Xperia 5 III. The Flip is a Zenfone 7 with a Snapdragon 888 and a few other tweaks. Available for pre-order today.
The phone was photographed in China and it appears to be a lower cost alternative to the Galaxy A52 5G with similar specs.
Previously, Sony believed that the supply shortage will end in the second half of this year, but later it told analysts that shortages will last through 2022.
And perhaps tablets and even phones too. The chip will replace the Snapdragons currently used in Samsung’s Windows-on-ARM laptops.
Both devices only have passive cooling for the M1 chipset, but the laptop managed to keep clock speeds slightly higher.
