Warmer weather doesn’t just mean the onset of summer. It’s usually a clue for concept designers to start ramping up iPhone concept art, as everyone gets their best guesses in as to what Apple has planned for its fall phone update. And even with a later launch than usual expected, the iPhone 12 isn’t going to be an exception to that trend.
The latest iPhone 12 concept video — and one of the best — comes from Devam Jangra, who created an iPhone 12 Pro video that looks like something Cupertino itself might produce.

Jangra’s video for ConceptsiPhone is pretty consistent with all the iPhone 12 rumors circulating around, particularly with the camera bump and the squared off edges of the phone. The former rumor supposes that the Pro models of the iPhone will add a LiDAR sensor to the main, ultra wide and telephoto lenses Apple introduced with the iPhone 11 Pro, and that they’ll appear in a square array with a flash in the middle that makes everything look like you’ve rolled a 5 with a six-sided die.RECOMMENDED VIDEOS FOR YOU…

As for the squared edges of the phone, that’s been a popular iPhone 12 rumor for a long time, as Apple watchers expect this fall’s phones to shift away from rounded edges to something that looks more like the iPhone 5.
If Jangra’s video departs from the widely accepted look of the iPhone 12 Pro, it’s in the colors featured. There’s a blue option, as has been widely anticipated. But the video also showcases brick and mustard color schemes to go alongside more traditional gray and silver options. It’s safe to say that Apple’s unlikely to feature those particular colors, but we wouldn’t be disappointed if it did — the Pro models play it pretty safe as opposed to the more colorful iPhone 11 options.
Jangra’s video rattles off a list of other features that have been linked with the iPhone 12 Pro models, including a display with a 120Hz refresh rate and 5G connectivity. The 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro and 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max are expected to be joined by two iPhone 12 models — one with a 5.4-inch screen and the other with a 6.1-inch display.
Current rumors suggest the iPhone 12 will ship in October, a delay from the usual September launch because of the coronavirus pandemic disrupting Apple’s production schedule.
Next Galaxy Z Flip to sport 120Hz display and narrower frame says leakster
Samsung already has two foldable clamshells in its lineup with the Galaxy Z Flip and Z Flip 5G and we’ve been hearing about a successor coming in Q2 of 2021. Now, leakster IceUniverse shared a couple of bits about the upcoming foldable which is referred to as the Galaxy Z Flip3.
According to his intel, the Z Flip3 will sport a 120Hz AMOLED display which would match Samsung’s Galaxy Z Fold2 and Galaxy Note20 Ultra flagships. The new Z Flip is also touted to feature a narrower frame which likely means less bezels around the panel.
The tipster also mentions a cheaper pricetag though we don’t get specific numbers here. Previous reports on the upcoming Z Flip model suggest it will feature stereo speakers and is expected to launch around March 2021, separate from the Galaxy S21 line. There’s also talk of a Galaxy Z Flip Lite model in the works as Samsung’s most affordable folding phone.
Google Zork Chromebook with AMD Ryzen 3 3250C spotted on Google Play Console
- Google Zork Chromebook specifications have been spotted on Google Play Console
- Key specs include AMD Ryzen 3 3250C, 4GB RAM, Radeon Vega 3 GPU, and Full HD display
- There could be another variant with Ryzen 7 3700C processor, as per Geekbench
Google is said to be working on a new Chromebook with the codename ‘Zork’ and it was spotted on the Geekbench platform back in April revealing key information, including the Android operating system version and chipset powering it. Now, the same Google Zork Chromebook has appeared on the Google Play Console, 91mobiles has discovered. The listing reveals more specifications of the notebook and reiterates earlier leaked details. Google Zork Chromebook specs, as per the listing, include the AMD Ryzen 3 3250C paired with 4GB RAM, Radeon Vega 3 GPU, a Full HD display with 1,920 X 1,080 pixels resolution, and 160 screen density.
Though the Google Play Console listing shows the device will run Android 9 OS, we suspect it might run on Chrome OS considering Android devices aren’t powered by AMD processors. The HP Pro Chromebook c645 that was introduced recently comes with the same AMD Ryzen 3 3250C processor, thereby making way for more Chromebooks with AMD processors. The listing also includes a render of the notebook with a sizeable trackpad and a proper keyboard with a matte finish. However, it’s possible the image could be a placeholder for now and may not represent the actual design of Google Zork.
Google Zork Chromebook specifications on Geekbench previously also mentioned a variant with the AMD Ryzen 7 3700C processor variant that has 4 CPU cores and 8 threads. The chipset is paired with Radeon Vega Mobile GFX graphics module and a large 8GB of RAM. Since the Chromebook has started appearing on the web, we suspect the development is inching closer to the final stages and the launch could be around the corner. We hope to learn more information soon. Stick around.
LG Rollable looks LIGHT YEARS ahead of Samsung Galaxy Z Fold 2 thanks to OLED TV tech
Foldable smartphones are big news in the mobile industry thanks to the likes of Samsung’s Galaxy Fold and Galaxy Z Flip. But LG is looking to go big or go home with its LG Rollable phone. Also known as LG Project B, it features – naturally enough – a rollable display. It leverages the tech behind the LG Rollable OLED TV to give a whole new twist on folding smartphones – or should we say rolling smartphones?
LG’s Explorer Project has already seen the LG Wing made its debut – a unique swivel handset that offer multi-screen functionality without folding – but its new Project B handset with a rollable screen is on another level entirely.
LG has been working on a rollable display for a while, and we initially heard about its Project B smartphone last November, with its extendable screen, as opposed to flexible, foldable display like the Galaxy Z Fold 2, or Motorola Razr.
At first glance, the handset looks like a standard smartphone, but the frame can be pulled out to both the left and the right to double the screen real estate. This is achieved thanks to an inner, flexible frame that slides out of the device’s metal housing.
The design has some advantage over foldable phones on the market now, with the biggest one being the absence of a hinge or crease; a panel with a fold in it will see the crease put under strain, potentially affecting the structural integrity of the display.
What’s more, the rollable can adapt to how the smartphone is being used – in much the same way as the LG Wing. In landscape mode, for example, expanding the screen while playing a video or streaming music could reveal the controls so that your viewing remains uninterrupted. There’s also the option of multitasking with a split-screen mode.
LG is reportedly skipping straight over the foldable trend, and is looking to launch its rollable smartphone in March, 2021 according to Neowin. It’s possible that the handset will only be extendable on one side, as opposed to both as depicted in the patent, but it’s a radical concept and we’re intrigued to see a company bucking the foldable trend to try something new.
