Another week's gone and it's time to recap. Microsoft unveiled Windows 11 with a new design and smart features. The taskbar icons are now centered, instead of on the left, windows have a rounded edge, updates are 40% smaller and work better in the background, and the OS can run Android apps. This last bit is enabled through the Intel Bridge compiler, which translates non-X86 apps to run on both Intel and AMD processors. Windows 11 will be out as a free update for compatible devices later this year.
The Huawei P50 series might come out on July 29. The range, consisting of the P50, P50 Pro and P50 Pro+ could be largely 4G, running on the Kirin 9000 chipset. We expect all three phones to have a 1-inch main camera and a new 1/1.18-inch sensor behind the ultrawide camera.
Tecno brought out its first premium smartphone - the Phantom X. It has a 50MP main camera, 4,700mAh battery with 33W charging and a Helio G95 chip. The phone will be out next month.
A few Samsung-related stories came out. First we saw official renders of the Galaxy Z Fold3 and Z Flip3. The Z Fold3 looks to have a punch-hole camera on its inner display, contradicting reports of an under-display camera. The next Fold will also seemingly finally support the S Pen.
The Galaxy M32 is now official. True to its heritage, it comes with a huge, 6,000mAh battery, complimented by a 6.4-inch 90Hz AMOLED and a low starting price tag - INR 14,999 for the 4/64GB model.
Rumor has it the Galaxy S22 and S22+ will get 50MP main cameras and a proper 12MP 3x zoom camera - no more cropping on a 64MP regular-zoom camera.
We also saw renders of the Galaxy Watch Active4 that's expected with Wear OS in August. The watch features no rotating bezel and has flat sides, instead of the rounded ones on the current Galaxy Watch Active2.
Sony's Xperia 1 III's US pre-orders are expected to start July 1 for a hefty $1,300. At least early buyers could expect some sort of high-end headphone bundle.
The OS will now remember the size and exact position of each app on your monitors.
