The Huawei Mate X2 becomes official with a folding design like the Galaxy Fold

Let’s move on to Huawei because we’ve been waiting for the Mate X2 for a while now and it’s finally out, and yes, it looks like the Galaxy Z Fold 2, but this is actually a different story. It features a new internal folding design with an 8-inch main OLED display that runs at a refresh rate of 90Hz. You’ll also get a 6.45-inch screen running at 90Hz on the cover. This phone is powered by Kirin 9000 SoC, along with 8 GB of RAM and up to 512 GB of internal memory. As for the camera, you get a 50MP main sensor, an ultra-wide 16MP, a 12MP telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom, along with an 8MP “Super Zoom” camera that supports 10x optical zoom. Of course, you get your typical set of features like Pro mode, image tracking, high resolution and more. You also get 4500 mAh and 55W fast charging on this phone and yes, unfortunately it is exclusive to China and there is no Google service. The thing is, the second reason why it’s different is because if you count, this phone costs a crazy $ 2775. Yeah, top notch MacBook Pro territory and I’m trying to figure out why.

The leaked images of the AirPods 3 reportedly show an ear design similar to the AirPods Pro

Let’s talk about Cupertino and their upcoming March event as we approach. Last week we talked about how we could get new iPad Pro, AirTags, maybe iPad mini and maybe some new AirPods. Over the weekend, Jon Prosser made a video about the products sources told him we were getting, which includes an iPad pros, AirTags, and a magic keyboard for that iPad Pro. However, he didn’t rule out the fact that we could get more stuff, he just wasn’t aware at the time. Well, going back to those AirPods, we have some new leaked schemes, showing a new design. As previous leaks have claimed, this takes the design guidelines of the current AirPods Pro, which is very welcome if you ask me. They bring a pressure-sensitive input area as well as pressure-reducing openings at the top. It is also expected to support surround sound, but active noise cancellation and transparency mode will not separate them from professionals. Reportedly, the price will cost $ 150, and this leak also claims that they will appear in March, so we will see if we will get them at the event.

MacBook Pro with SD card slot, HDMI port for launch in H2 from 2021

Sticking with Apple for another segment, let’s talk about the MacBook Pro and I actually had to read this report twice because it sounds too good to be true. Look at MacBooks Pros, they’ve been criticized in the past for multiple killing ports that professionals * actually * use, but just like we’ve seen with the iPhone, it’s serious as if Apple is finally listening. According to a new report other than Ming Chi Kuo, Cupertino plans to release 2 new MacBook Pro models that, hearing this, have an HDMI port and an SD card reader. A complete return to the 2012 model, and I really hope I read this well. Kuo notes that we should expect these two new MacBook Pro models in the second half of 2021 that will have several significant changes in design and specifications. Sure, there was talk of an SD card reader last month, but this is the first time we’ve heard of this dedicated HDMI port. So, we expect new 14-inch and 16-inch versions of the MacBook Pro, both powered by Apple Silicon. These devices also have brighter panels with higher contrast, probably thanks to the new mini-LED panels, and MagSafe could return to laptops as well, which could make them charge faster. We don’t know exactly how much they plan to cut USB-C ports, but, it seems to me that the 4 USB-C ports along with this new leak are quite reasonable, especially in terms of how much Apple costs these computers.

The leak of the Google Pixel 5a shows a familiar design with an upgraded dual rear camera setting

Yes .. It’s finally time. Diego and I joked about the fact that it’s been too long since we leaked into Pixel. And they’re finally here, though I’m not sure how excited we should be. We have some new renders from OnLeaks that obviously belong to Pixel 5a, and in a typical Pixel way there is nothing to imagine here. Like, it delivers pretty much the same design as the Pixel 4a .. Somehow. According to the data leak, this is a 6.2-inch OLED display in FHD + resolution, but it is still unclear whether Google will stick to 60Hz or jump to at least 90Hz here. The back of the small stove comes back, but this time we finally get a dual camera module. In typical Google mode, we should expect the same hardware we have on the Pixel 5 with a 12MP main sensor and an ultra-wide 16MP. From the leak you can see that we have the same hole, the same fingerprint scanner on the back, and the headphone jack is still here! Obviously we should expect the Pixel 5a to come out sometime in August this year, maybe with Android 12 because then we should expect the first stable build. Well yeah, we seem to get a smaller Pixel 4a 5G in every way you can think of, unless Google plans to fix things under the hood, and it’s not like the company is known for that.
