POCO X3 will feature a 64MP primary camera; samples revealed

Ever since POCO became an independent brand they have been on a roll when it comes to launching products. So far, we’ve gotten the POCO X2 and the F2 Pro, but recently the company announced that we would be getting another phone soon. Well, their global spokesman just went on Twitter and posted a picture of the X3 and a camera sample as well. POCO already confirmed that this phone will bring a 64MP main sensor on a quad camera array so this serves as more of a teaser. According to him both of these pictures were taken with the X3 and, they don’t look bad at all. Some other leaked specs for this phone include a 120Hz display with 240Hz touch sampling rate, a 5160 mAh battery and it would be powered by an unannounced Snapdragon 732 SoC. It will also sport a 20MP selfie shooter and we should expect this phone to launch on September 8th.

LG’s Wing smartphone with a rotating secondary display appears in another leaked video

A couple of days ago we got a leaked video of the LG Wing fully working on a car and well, now we have another one. And don’t worry guys, this time there’s no multi-tasking while driving. On this new 10 second clip, the person on the passenger seat is playing Asphalt on the main display which is set horizontally, while getting driving directions on the vertical secondary display which is at the top this time. What’s interesting is that this time the phone seems to be set into a different position when compared to last time, meaning that there will be multiple ways to play around with both displays instead of a single position. We still don’t have any information on a launch date or specs as, we still believe that this is only a concept as of right now.

A budget OnePlus ‘Clover’ with Snapdragon 460 SoC, 6000mAh battery is coming soon

OnePlus could be working on a smartwatch, might launch it by year-end

Back on Monday we covered how, the OnePlus proprietary source code hinted that we would be getting a new budget phone some time soon with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 460. Now, a new report from Android Central claims that OnePlus is working on an “entry-level phone” that is powered by that same Snapdragon 460. The report mentions that the launch is imminent and that this device will be made available in global markets, including the US. Apparently the codename for this phone is “Clover” and it will feature a 6.52in 720p LCD display, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage. It could also pack a 6000 mAh battery with 18W fast charging and a triple camera array at the back which would include a 13MP main sensor and two 2MP sensors. It is rumored to cost around $200. Moving on, it looks like the company is working on a smart watch as well. As a new OnePlus Watch was just certified in Singapore, revealing the model number. It’s most likely running WearOS, on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 4100 and it will reportedly have a design similar to the OPPO Watch, so you know what that means.. We could get it along the OnePlus 8T.

The prices of the iPhone 12 lineup will apparently go up

I guess the only way we can describe iPhone 12 rumors is by saying they’re cumbersome. It’s been a constant back and forth over the specs, the features and the prices. Well, according to a new report from TrendForce Analytics, it looks like we are getting some more expensive iPhones, even if they’re taking away accessories and cutting corners with other components. According to them, these iPhones might be $50-$100 more expensive than the 11 Series. They claim that the 5.4in iPhone 12 could start between $699-749, the 6.1in iPhone 12 Max between $799-849, the 6.1in 12 Pro will apparently start at $1049 instead of $999 and finally, the 6.7in 12 Pro Max would be priced between $1149-1199. Most of the added costs are due to the new 5G components as we know that the Pro variants will rock mmWave 5G which is causing some of the delays and according to this particular report, storage will start at 64GB unlike previous rumors that hinted to 128GB.

Apple has terminated Epic Games’ developer accounts

And finally the hottest news today have to do with Apple and Epic Games going thermo nuclear on each other. I guess they weren’t joking around. Just for context if you remember Fortnite has been banned from the App Store ever since August 13th when they violated the Terms of Service by adding an in-app payment option to their cosmetics store. Well, Apple gave them 14 days to fix this or they would be permanently banned from the Store. Well, that just happened. Apple just terminated Epics Developer Account, meaning that Fortnite isn’t the only game affected anymore. If you search for other titles like Infinity Blade or Battle Breakers they are completely gone. Epic announced the latest Fortnite Season yesterday, and technically you can still play but you’re only able to play with other Apple users, and you won’t get any new updates. Epic also sent emails to their users blaming Apple over the fact that they wouldn’t be able to play the new season and Apple simply responded by featuring PUBG in the App Store. As of right now, only Epics Main account has been terminated, and not Epic Games international which is responsible for the Unreal Engine thanks to the judges ruling as Apple was going after both. Apple already confirmed this on a statement saying that it was disappointing that the termination had to happen. Epic doesn’t have the ability to submit apps or updates any more and with how that lawsuit is going, it looks like that’s the it’s going to end.
