It is time to look back to the more memorable stories that shaped the smartphone world in the past seven days. Leaked promo materials on the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip3 and Z Fold3 revealed a bigger secondary screen for the clamshell, while the larger foldable phone will finally gain support for S Pen.
Apple is nowhere near a launch soon, but the rumor mill is already picking up pace. The iPhone 13 series will have 120Hz AMOLED screens provided by Samsung, but there will be zero foldable phones in the family – the first one is not expected until 2023.
Asus is also aiming for a company-first – its new Zenfone 8 flagship will have an IP68 rating, meaning it will be the first smartphone by the Taiwanese maker that is properly waterproof and dustproof. We have also seen leaked renders, suggesting one of the phones will be fairly compact, catering to a largely under-served niche.
