New leaked images of the alleged Moto RAZR 5G look hot
Let’s go back to clamshell foldables, Evan Blass just posted a new leak of the upcoming RAZR. We’re expecting this phone to launch some time in September as Motorola mentioned in a podcast and, according to Evan this phone will be called the Moto RAZR 5G / Odyssey. On the picture we get to see the phone laying down on a table showing a much larger outer display which displays someone doing a video call. The design doesn’t look like it changed all that much but it does look more like the original RAZRs from back in the day. Previous leaks from Evan hinted that we will be getting better specs like the Snapdragon 765G, 8GB of RAM, dual cameras with a 48MP primary sensor and a secondary 20MP shooter. We’re about a month away from September so, we should be hearing some more soon.
Google’s Pixel 4a might finally launch on August 3
Speaking of releases, Mr. Jon Prosser is back, at least on Twitter and he has a new update for the Google Pixel 4a. A couple of weeks ago, he tweeted out that we’d be getting this phone on August 3rd and today he tweeted out that it will 100% be happening on that date. Everything is supposed to be ready as, the phone was allegedly ready months ago but Google just pushed the dates back, we assume it was because of the pandemic because that’s the only logical explanation for these many delays. We’re still expecting this phone to be powered by the Snapdragon 730, pack a 3140 mAh battery with 18W fast charging. Bring a single camera at the back as well as a 5.8in punch hole display and a price tag between the $300-400 mark. We’re only a week away from this launch date so, we hope to hear back soon.

Story of the day:
The 5.4-inch display of the iPhone 12 could’ve appeared on Weibo
iPhone 12, Apple Glass and Apple Silicon launch date leaked?
We have two separate leaks for Apple today but, they actually overlap. Let’s start off with some images of display panels that allegedly belong to the 5.4in iPhone 12 and were posted to Weibo. We can’t really see much from these images other than the fact that the notch does look somewhat smaller than the ones we currently have. Now, for the second leak, we have a now deleted tweet from a tipster with some dates for the upcoming Apple Events. According to him, there’s going to be an online event on September 8th where we’ll be getting the new iPhones, the Apple Watch, a new iPad and, wait for it, AirPower. Then he mentioned a second event on October 27th but, he didn’t mention if it was going to happen online. At this event we should be getting a new iPad Pro, two new Apple Silicon Macs which are a 13in MacBook Pro and a MacBook, he also added that if this is an online event, we could be getting Apple Glass. Of course, these are all rumors and you should take them with a grain of salt but, it provides somewhat of a timeline as there’s a lot of conflicting rumors going on.
