Honor has aggressively launched new wearables to boost its ecosystem of products and there’s no stopping. The company announced the Watch GS Pro a few weeks ago, alongside the Honor Watch ES. The former is now up for purchase and comes along with two new color options dubbed — Camo Blue and Camo Grey Editions.

The Honor Watch GS is now available for purchase in France, UK, Germany, Italy, and Spain. It’s priced at €249.90 and can be ordered via Honor’s website. A limited time offer entitles you to a 20 percent discount on the total price if purchased before the end of September.

Coming to the watch, it has a 1.4-inch AMOLED display, a Kirin A1 chipset, GPS support, and multiple fitness modes. Most importantly, the watch’s body is designed for rough usage and features MIL-STD 810G-rated build. It can withstand shocks, high thermals, and repel water.

Caviar is selling an iPhone 12 designed after Apple’s very-first device

Piece of history!

Published

on

For most of us, our first-ever Apple device is the iconic iPod. However, Apple’s history goes far beyond the once-ubiquitous portable music player. Back then, the company designed the world’s very-first personal computers, starting with the Apple I in 1977. Now, the iPhone 12 is unofficially honoring that historic tradition with an official third-party variant. Caviar is selling an iPhone 12 designed after Apple’s very-first device.

As you might expect by now, Russian tech maker Caviar has started selling custom, luxury variants of the upcoming iPhone 12 series. Back in August, the company advertised a gold iPhone 12 selling for US$ 23,380. Though it’s not made from gold, Caviar’s iPhone 12 Apple I collection still promises something special for willing customers.

First of all, the phone’s wooden case carries a “glossy titanium screen,” heavily inspired by the original Apple I’s design. The “screen” displays code ending in the historic “Hello, World” message from computing history. Below the screen, you’ll find titanium buttons spelling out “COMPUTER.” And below that, Caviar is installing a piece of the Apple I’s original motherboard right on the phone’s rear. (Yes, it belongs in a museum!)

Rounding off this piece of history, the Apple I edition sports the roughly engraved label “Apple,” another mark from the original computer.

Naturally, the museum-worthy iPhone 12 Pro variant comes in an extremely limited supply. Caviar is selling only nine units of the collection, starting at US$ 9,990 and going up to US$ 11,150. Meanwhile, Caviar is also selling a limited, 49-unit run of a smaller Apple 1 Light (sporting a tinier piece of the motherboard), starting at US$ 4,990.

Samsung isn’t done working on Galaxy M phones for 2020

At least two more models coming this year

Published

Despite the chaotic uncertainty of 2020, one thing remains constant: the remarkable persistence of Samsung’s Galaxy M series. Though the smartphone industry suffered numerous delays this year, the South Korean company has constantly outed new Galaxy M models throughout the past few months. According to a report, Samsung isn’t done working on Galaxy M phones for 2020.

Exclusively reported by SamMobile, Samsung is still working to launch at least two Galaxy M models before the end of the year. Carrying the model numbers SM-M425F and SM-M127F, the two smartphones will reportedly turn up as the Galaxy M42 and the Galaxy M12s.

Of the two, the Galaxy M42 has the more storied career. Last year, Samsung released the Galaxy M40, a capable budget-friendly driver with a triple rear camera combination. This year, the company certified a 6800mAh whopper, the supposed battery of the potential Galaxy M41. However, despite the certification, Samsung didn’t utter as much as a peep of the alleged Galaxy M40 sequel. If the leak holds true, the company is moving up production a bit further by making the Galaxy M42 before the Galaxy M41.

Meanwhile, the Galaxy M12s has a stranger story. Last year’s Galaxy M10 marked one of the earliest entries for the Galaxy M series. This year, a follow-up — the Galaxy M11 — sported a massive 5000mAh battery. Who knows what the Galaxy M12s might hold?

Beside the ubiquitous Galaxy S and Note series, Samsung has constantly rounded out its smartphone offerings with a healthy lineup of midrange and budget-friendly models. With a thriving Galaxy M series, the company can offer its iconic Samsung experience to a wider audience.
