iPhone 12 Pro might not get that 120Hz display after all

iPhone 12 Pro might not get that 120Hz display after all

Apple is slowly blurring the lines that separate its devices and platforms. This year's iPhones, for example, may even look like miniature iPad Pros. That doesn't mean it will get the same features, of course, but there's still some discussion on what features the iPhone 12 may inherit from Apple's slates. As with the LIDAR camera, there is still no consensus on whether any of the iPhones will finally have a ProMotion display and the latest insider tip leans more on the side of "no".

Apple reportedly rushing suppliers to prevent iPhone 12 delays

Apple reportedly rushing suppliers to prevent iPhone 12 delays

There has been no shortage of rumors that this year's iPhones could be delayed by a few months. Some even paint a worst-case scenario of an early 2021 shipping date. Apple, of course, would have none of that and is reportedly pushing its supply chain partners to make up for lost time. Whether that will be enough to narrow the delay is just one question. Whether it will cause some lapses in quality or safety is perhaps the more important consideration.

Galaxy Note 20 reportedly fixes one major Galaxy S20 flaw

Galaxy Note 20 reportedly fixes one major Galaxy S20 flaw

It is increasingly apparent that the Galaxy Note 20 is Samsung's "mea culpa" over the Galaxy S20, at least when it comes to its features. While the price will most likely be just as high as the Galaxy S20, thanks to the S Pen, but it might be cutting down on some of the more excessive features of its predecessor. It will also be addressing some of the complaints with the Galaxy S20' supposedly great camera, particularly that sensor's biggest flaw when it comes to staying focused.

Galaxy A42 5G could boost Samsung’s mid-range portfolio

Galaxy A42 5G could boost Samsung’s mid-range portfolio

If you haven't yet heard by now, Samsung's best selling 5G phone in the past six months isn't the Galaxy S20. Sure, the company's high-end phone does have its fair share of buyers but even Samsung has practically admitted defeat in making its sales numbers not sound so terrible. The 5G-enabled Galaxy A51 and Galaxy A71 are, instead, some of its more popular handsets this year so far. And that may be giving Samsung the confidence to further push that mid-range series with what could be its most affordable 5G phone yet.

Snapdragon 875 leaks boast 100W charging and a high price tag

The seemingly unstoppable rise of high-end smartphones seemed to have ground to a halt or at least taken a breather as the entire world finds itself in a very different situation from just six months ago. While expensive smartphones continue to be announced, sales numbers indicate a slight shift in favor of less expensive options, even if they are of the mid-range kind. Perhaps unperturbed by global market trends, Qualcomm is reportedly pushing through its planned new features as well as a new price that consumers will end up shouldering in the long run.

Galaxy Fold Lite is reportedly postponed to 2021

Galaxy Fold Lite is reportedly postponed to 2021

If foldable phones look and sound like luxuries few people would be able to get their hands on it's because that's exactly what they are. The combination of their price and fragility pretty much ensures that these will never be commonplace, at least in the foreseeable future. Samsung, which helped spur the foldable phone market in the first place, was expected to also push more affordable foldable phones as well. Unfortunately, now it seems that won't be the case this year as plans for what was believed to be the Galaxy Fold Lite 4G is reportedly being put on hold.

iPhone 12 might not have a charger in the box according to Kuo

There has been a lot of speculation about Apple's new products and schedules that have been thrown into disarray thanks to the coronavirus pandemic. The show will go on, fortunately for Apple fans, but the company may be making a few changes to keep things from going overboard. That will mostly be due to the increasing prices of its high-end devices thanks to increasingly powerful components, like 5G modems in the iPhone 12. Apple's solution? Take out almost everything from the iPhone's box.

App Clips: Apple’s low-key 5G hero feature

App Clips: Apple’s low-key 5G hero feature

Apple revealed App Clips, a system where a bit of an app can be launched without downloading the entirety of an app. This feature was revealed with a bunch of iOS 14 elements and didn't seem to be all that extraordinarily important in the moment in which it was first shown. But given the oncoming launch of iPhone devices with 5G connectivity - there's a whole lot this system will do for developers and end-users in the short-term.

iPhone 12 dummy models give a near-final look at Apple’s first 5G phones

WWDC 2020 is about to kick off in less than 24 hours and while Apple is expected to make big waves this week, the iPhones that some might be waiting for are still months away. Of course, if Apple is to meet its self-imposed deadlines, the design of its first batch of 5G iPhones should now be set in stone. Or in this case, metal and plastic models that will give accessory makers as well as the public a preview of what to expect come September's event.

Huawei Mate 30 might be delayed due to chip supply concerns

The new rules haven't even been fully implemented yet but it's already affecting the company due to the uncertainty it has suddenly found itself in regarding the phone's most important component. Huawei has now been forced to take stock of its existing inventory of HiSilicon chips and reassess its capability to mass-produce its next batch of smartphones. This, in turn, could force it to delay the production and subsequent launch of the Huawei mate 30 series by at least a month or two.
