Apple held off its WWDC this week and detailed the next versions of iOS, iPadOS, macOS, watchOS, tvOS, and also announced the M2 Ultra chipset, a 15-inch MacBook Air, and its long-awaited Vision Pro VR/AR headset.
Vision Pro isn’t a mere AR/VR headset but the first “spatial computer”. Indeed, it packs an M2 processor, an R1 chip to process the data from the headset’s 12 cameras, five sensors, and six mics, as well as two displays that combine for more than 23 million pixels. Apple’s demo of the Vision Pro was impressive, but we didn’t really get to see what the device will feel like when it finally ships to users.
As for that, Vision Pro will launch in the US early next year for a whopping $3,499, and expand to other countries later in 2024.
We also saw renders of the Nothing Phone (2), showing a similar design with slightly more rounded sides and a slight arc to the front and back glass panels. Rumor has it the display will be bigger at 6.7 inches, and the choice of the chipset will be a more upmarket Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1. Carl Pei later hinted that the design leak is fake, but we’ll have to wait and see.
Samsung’s Galaxy F54 is official. It’s currently up for pre-order on Samsung.com and Flipkart, it will also be available through select retailers. There is only one configuration (8/256GB) and its price is ₹30,000, which can fall to ₹28,000 if you pay with certain bank cards.
Fans of small yet powerful phones will rejoice to hear that the Asus Zenfone 10 is launching on June 29. It will have a 5.9-inch display, and a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 chipset.
The OnePlus Nord N30 5G was unveiled with a Snapdragon 695 SoC, a 108MP camera, and a 5,000mAh battery. The OnePlus Nord N30 5G is priced at $299.99 (€280/INR24,780) and is up for pre-order on OnePlus’ official US website. Shipping begins on June 8.
The Phone (1) had squared sides and a flat glass panels, but it was smaller too. The renders also show changes to the Glyph interface lights on the back.
Its starting price is ₹30,000 and you can get a ₹2,000 discount with certain debit and credit cards. Note that the F54 is basically the Galaxy M54.
For comparison, the GTS 4 has a 1.75″ display. This one will also have a stainless steel strap and up to 12 days of battery life.
The Chinese Reno10 Pro is powered by a Dimensity 8200 and it has a 1240p class display, the global phone will go down to 1080p class.
