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.
