Sony says that variable refresh rate feature for PlayStation 5 is in the works

In a recently updated PS5 FAQ section, Sony has confirmed that the variable refresh rate feature isn't supported yet on its new Playstation 5 console, but it will be in the near future. This is rather strange because the console has HDMI 2.1, which supports the VRR by default. For instance, the Xbox Series X, Series S and One X all support VRR, which turns out to be a pretty cool feature not only for PC gamers but for console gamers as well. Especially since the new hardware can do 120fps at 1080p and 4K. Some of the games tend to suffer feom the occasional dip lf the framerate so VRR...

Oppo is holding off on building rollable phones commercially

The Oppo X 2021 rollable phone concept can expand its 6.7” display to 7.4” thanks to a rollable screen panel and a motor-powered sliding mechanism to unroll it. It’s an impressive tech demo and just that – the company has no short-term plans to build a mass market device with such a design. “Although there is no plan for its commercialization in the short term, it will serve as a guide for the transformation and evolution of future product form factors. Commercialization requires market research and business justification, and may take some time,” wrote Oppo to Android Authority. ...

Report: the Huawei P50 will use Kirin 9000 chips, Samsung and LG OLED displays

With the Mate 40 flagships out of the gate, Huawei is moving its attention to the P-series – despite US sanctions disrupting its supply line, the company is on track to launch the P50 phones in the first half of 2021. This means the P-series may keep to its usual March/April launch time frame (or stick close to it, anyway). The Elec reports that Samsung Display and LG Display are ready to supply OLED panels for the new models, citing people with direct knowledge of the matter. Samsung Display acquired a license to trade with Huawei back in October and it seems that LG did so as...

The Honor V40 will not use the Kirin 9000, Dimensity 1000+ the likely replacement

Huawei will sell the Honor division and this is more than just a legal shuffle – it will affect the end product too. Leakster Digital Chat Station writes that the Honor V40 series will not use the Kirin 9000. The Honor V30 and V30 Pro used the Kirin 990 chipset, HiSilicon’s top chip of 2019 (well, ‘chips’, really, as the Pro used the slightly more advanced 990 5G chip). If all was well, the V40s would have used HiSilicon’s 2020 flagship chipset. However, the company has trouble sourcing those chips as the US/China trade war has blocked TSMC from fabbing chips for Huawei. It did produce...

Samsung Galaxy Z Fold3 coming with S Pen, new ultra-thin glass in June 2021

A new report from Korea claims that Samsung will push the Galaxy Z Fold3 from a Fall announcement to June of 2021. More importantly, the report claims that the Galaxy Z Fold3 will not only support an S Pen, but have it embedded into the device's body, like on the Galaxy Note series. After the Galaxy S21 Ultra, that's the first projected 2021 device that is said to support an S Pen, further driving home the painful realization that Samsung will discontinue the Galaxy Note lineup in 2021. Samsung will reportedly be able to make the S Pen work on the flexible screen on the Galaxy Z Fold 3...

The Nokia 8000 4G and 6300 4G are now available for pre-order in Russia

HMD’s latest KaiOS-powered phones, the Nokia 6300 and 8000, are now available for pre-order in Russia. The company was a bit vague with the availability dates and other regional Nokia stores still show the duo as coming soon. Anyway, while the Nokia 8000 4G appears to be the most premium of the re-imagined devices, it’s not the most expensive. It can be yours for RUB 7,500 (€83.2). That is a bit less than the 2720 Flip, for example, which is the only other KaiOS Nokia with a 2.8” screen – the rest have 2.4” screens instead.
