OnePlus 10 Pro global launch event scheduled for March 31

The official news today begin with OnePlus, finally! We've been complaining for months now the fact that the OnePlus 10 Pro wasn't being released globally but, the time has finally come. The company announced earlier today that they will be hosting the OnePlus 10 Pro's global launch event on March 31st at 10AM Eastern. The event will be live-streamed on YouTube on their official channel. I don't think you need a reminder on the changes we're getting but just to jog your memory, the 10 Pro brings a 6.7-inch LTPO 2.0 display, it's powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, 12 Gigs of LPDDR5 RAM, a 5000 mAh battery with VOOC fast charging and more. It also brings a triple camera array with a 48MP primary, a 50MP ultra wide and an 8MP telephoto.. And yes, the global variant should be coming with Oxygen OS 12 instead of ColorOS. So yeah, we're a week away from the event and we already know what's coming so, I hope we get new buds or something?


Hackers leak 37GB of Microsoft source code

Let's switch on to Microsoft and hacking issues that seem to be a recurring problem. A new report alleges that Microsoft was hacked earlier this week by Lapsus and they're claiming that 37 gigs of Microsoft's source code have been leaked. Bleeping Computer reports that the data came from Microsoft's Azure DevOps server and it included code from high-profile and internal projects, relating to Bing Search, Bing Maps and even Cortana. Security researchers confirmed that the collection does appear to include legitimate Microsoft Source code and some projects even included emails and documentation meant for the Microsoft engineers to publish. However, it looks like the code doesn't apply to other locally-run desktop software like Windows or the Office Suite. For those of you, this is the same group that hacked Samsung earlier this month and they've also gone after companies like Nvidia. At the moment we're not sure if Microsoft has addressed the issue but, who's next at this point?

A 15-inch MacBook Air could reportedly arrive in 2023

Let's shift gears on to Cupertino and the MacBook Air. Recently all the leaks have been focusing on the revamp we're reportedly getting in Q3 but, Apple might be cooking something entirely different for the future. We have a new report from DSSC claiming that Apple is working on a 15-inch MacBook Air that would launch next year. Not only that, but they'll also be slightly increasing the display size of the 13-inch variant next year as well. Other than this, we haven't heard anything about this MacBook Air's design but Mark Gurman did put out a report last year saying that Cupertino was working on this behind the scenes. The DSSC report also mentions that we could expect a new entry-level iPad with a larger display next year which I think is due for a refresh. I assume they'll be using the same design we're getting with the 13-inch this year which is tipped to bring a notch, hence the larger displays but, given how delays are going right now, I don't know how long we'll have to wait.

Samsung could be working on three new foldable devices for 2022

Finally, for the hottest news today, let's talk about Samsung and their upcoming foldables which would also be their next big release this year. So far the company has been perfecting the two models we've had for a couple of years now but, it looks like we're finally getting something new. We have a new report from Galaxy Club, claiming that Sammy is working on three new foldables at the moment.. That being the Galaxy Z Flip 4, the Z Fold 4, and a third device that's still unknown but they can tell by the current codenames for these projects. The three codenames are B4, Q4 and N4, with the Z Flip being B4, and the Z Fold being Q4 based on the previous models. Now, we have a new tweet from Ice Universe where he's confirming that there is a third foldable device set to release in the second half of this year which is codenamed Diamond. Heck, he even added a picture of some executives where one of them is reportedly holding the phone, and he claims that there is a high probability that this is a scroll phone. I'm not sure if that means it's a rollable but hey, I'm down for something new. He also added that both the Z Fold and Z Flip would be powered by the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 Plus which will be built on TSMC's 4nm process.
