The OnePlus Nord was the talk of week 27. We saw a few teasers for it and we know it packs a triple camera on the rear as well as a dual camera on the front, that it’s powered by the Snapdragon 765G and that it will cost under $500.
We already had a good idea that Apple is planning to ditch the earbuds from the iPhone 12 retail package, likely to boost AirPods sales. Well it seems Apple will also ditch the in-box charger from its future iPhones, with the pretext of a reduced environmental hit. Analysts believe the move aims to offset the added cost of 5G in the iPhone 12.
In more positive news the iPhone 12 series will be able to shoot 4K video at up to 240fps for some next-level slow-mo footage.
In Samsung rumors, we got our first look at the Galaxy Note20 Ultra in Mystic Bronze and also a side by side look at the cases for the Galaxy Note20+ and Note20 Ultra, driving home just how much bigger the Ultra model will be.
We also saw the 45mm Galaxy Watch3 from all angles, its new watch faces, period tracking in the calendar app and features like Spotify, ECG monitoring and new notification icons.
We’ll close with the first rumors about the Qualcomm Snapdragon 875. It seems it will be mass produced by TSMC on a 5nm node, have the new Cortex-X1 prime core, support 100W fast charging and reportedly cost 40% more than the Snapdragon 865.
Those were the highlights of the week! See you next one.
