Another week done, so let’s recap. Apple will unveil its iPhone 13 series on September 14, that’s next Tuesday. We’ll cover the whole thing and we expect the announcement of the iPhone 13, 13 mini, 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max.

A retailer revealed the upcoming iPhone 13 mini and iPhone 13 will arrive in six colors: black, blue, purple, pink, white, and Product RED. The mini will be available in both 64GB and 128GB storage options. Meanwhile, the iPhone 13 will arrive in either 128GB or 256GB. The iPhone 13 Pro and 13 Pro Max will arrive in four, more conservative colors: black, silver, gold, and bronze. The Pro will come in either 128GB or 256GB storage options while the Max will come in 256GB and 512GB variants.

We even saw supposed renders of next year’s iPhone 14 Pro Max, showing no notch but a punch hole camera as well as a flush camera island on the rear.

Tecno’s Spark 8 is coming to India next week, as per our sources.

A word on Pixel phones. Firstly Google put out an official video teaser of the Pixel 6 and we got wind that the duo – Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro, may launch on October 19.

Then there’s the Pixel 3. Many reports suggest that the Pixel 3 and 3 XL have started bricking overnight. Google is yet to address the reported issue with a fix and there’s no clear-cut reason for the bricking. Some hypothesize it’s due to a recent security update.

vivo’s X70 series were unveiled this week. The X70 Pro+ has a SD888+ chip and a custom V1 image processing chip. It does processing for the 50MP wide, 8MP 5x periscope tele, 12MP 2x tele and 48MP ultrawide. The vivo X70 Pro+ will be available in China later this month starting at CNY 5,500 ($850/€720) for the base 8/256GB model.

The vivo X70 Pro uses an Exynos 1080 chipset, 50MP main camera, 12MP ultrawide, 12MP 2x tele and 8MP 5x periscope zoom. The vanilla X70 uses a Dimensity 1200, 40MP main camera, 12MP ultrawide and 12MP 2x tele.

See you in a week!
