Black Shark 3 Pro to sport mechanical pop-up shoulder triggers
There will be not one, but two Black Shark 3 models
We keep getting new leaks of the Xiaomi Black Shark 3 on Weibo. This time, the company just teased a magnetic charging connector on the back of the phone. The phone is confirmed to bring 65W charging but we don’t know if that will be limited to the USB-C port. We also have an image that wasn’t posted by the company and it is allegedly the camera arrangement which shows three cameras at the back in the shape of a triangle. The company’s CEO also said that there will be two models of the phone, the Black Shark 3 Pro and the Black Shark 3 Vanilla. The only difference we’re aware of now is a bigger battery on the Pro variant, when compared to the vanilla. The device will also have pop-up triggers at the sides.
Microsoft Surface Duo peek feature detailed by leaked video
We have a new leaked video of the Surface Duo that shows a new ‘Peek’ feature. Since this phone does not have an outer display for notifications, you will be able to partially open the Surface Duo to display your notifications. It will let you scroll through the notifications and dismiss them as well. It will also help to check who is calling you and you can choose to open the device to take the call or close it back to silence it. Last week we got that video of the Surface Duo running Google Maps and now this new feature could hint that we’re closer to a launch.

Story of the day:
The EU wants to bring back removable batteries
So, remember that whole proposal from the EU where all devices have a USB-C port? Well, things keep on evolving as a new leaked proposal shows that the EU may require all devices to have a removable battery. This will reportedly be proposed in March according to a Dutch publication. This could be an interesting scenario as most phones got rid of removable batteries, companies like Apple would have to make their devices thicker and change their designs to be able to sell them in the EU if this goes through. Apple pushed back on the USB-C proposal, stating that the iPhone is too thin for a USB-C port and they will most likely go against this one.
