The new iPhones are coming on October 13 and there will be four of them – a 5.4-inch iPhone 12 mini, a 6.1-inch iPhone 12 and 12 Pro and a 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max. We’ll cover the event so be sure to check in on Tuesday. The notch on the iPhone 12 series is rumored to remain the same and only get smaller with next year’s iPhone 13 lineup.
Huawei detailed the availability of its in-house Harmony OS 2.0 – it will come to the Mate 40 series, running the Kirin 9000, first and then to the Kirin 990 devices, such as the Mate 30 and P40 series.
Samsung announced the Galaxy F41 in and for the Indian market. It combines a 6.4-inch Super AMOLED with a 64MP main camera and a 6,000mAh battery and will be available from October 16, starting at INR 17,000 (Flipkart has a special INR 15,500 price for the promotional period).
Qualcomm and Asus are rumored to be collaborating on a special gaming phone, that will be announced on December 1 or 2. It will pack a 5nm Snapdragon 875 with a Cortex-X1 performance core.
The Poco C3 is official with a 6.43-inch IPS LCD, Helio G35 chipset, 5,000mAh battery and a price of just INR 7,499. Sales start on October 16.
It appears that the Galaxy S21 or S30, depending on the name Samsung chooses, won’t have an under display camera, but instead the technology will premiere on the Galaxy Z Fold 3.
