Here are the top stories on GadgetMatch this week.

1. Could this really be the Huawei P30 Pro’s superzoom camera?

We’re roughly around two weeks away from the launch of the Huawei P30 series and with that comes a new round of leaks. In this edition though, it looks like we’re being treated to sample photos of the Huawei P30 Pro’s superzoom camera.

The first bundle showcases a concert of British boy band Blue — one shot with a wide-angle lens, the other with a closer shot without losing much detail. Another set of photos shows a prenuptial photoshoot but with clear labels of the camera’s different modes.

A little while back, a Huawei official also released a photo of an incredibly zoomed-in moon and tag that says “Huawei P30 Pro.” Perhaps the Chinese company could have just used any of these photos instead of a stock image on one of their promotional materials.

2. Huawei working on non-Android OS

Huawei CEO Richard Yu recently confirmed with German publication Die Welt that they are indeed developing an operating system not based on Android. No other details were revealed but he said the company is doing this due to “extenuating circumstances.”

The company has faced multiple issues over the past few months with the most recent one against the US government who they filed a case against. Despite this, Yu said they still prefer to stay with Google’s ecosystems and that what they’re working on is only a backup plan.

3. Android Q beta now ready on Pixel phones

The rollout of Android Pie to most Android smartphones is still ongoing. However, it didn’t stop Google from releasing Android Q Beta 1.

Yes, the latest Android is now ready for download on Pixel phones. Since this is an early preview, expect to experience some instability. Here’s to hoping everyone else gets a piece of Android Pie before Android Q reaches its final stages.

4. Motorola to come up with a midrange foldable

We’ve seen both the Samsung Galaxy Fold and the Huawei Mate X. Not to be outdone, it appears Motorola is also joining the foldable revolution.

Several rumors have come up, many of which speculate that Motorola will likely revive its Razr line as branding for its foldable phone. However, a new report says the foldable will be called Voyager. It will have the following specs: Snapdragon 710, up to 6GB of RAM, up to 128GB of internal storage, and a 2730mAh battery.

5. Harry Potter AR game from makers of Pokemon Go is here

Potterheads rejoice! It’s your turn to roam the streets with the new augmented reality (AR) game Harry Potter: Wizards Unite.

Developed by the same studio that brought us Pokemon Go, the game will have you walking around looking for artifacts instead of adorable pocket monsters. According to The Verge, there are mini-games when casting a spell. You’ll have to complete a collection book, earn points, and level up. Eurogamer also notes that players can choose one of three classes: the Magizoologist, the Profesoor, or the Auror. Which one will you choose?


Weekend Rewind is our roundup of top news and features you might have missed for the week. We know the world of technology can be overwhelming and not everyone has the time to get up to speed with everything — and that includes us. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the rewind.
