Nokia 3310 Unboxing: Special Clear Box?!



Now here’s a retail box we don’t normally see!

When we first received our Nokia 3310 retail unit, we were a little surprised by its presentation — A see-through front cover?! we thought.

But lo and behold, this is official packaging and not some knockoff you’d find in the gray market.

Watch us as we unbox it:

Despite the unusual box, all the nostalgia-filled accessories and presentation are still there — just the way we like it!

Google stops selling the Pixel 3A

Making way for the Pixel 4a



Google has officially stopped selling its midrange offering, the Pixel 3a. In a statement to Android Police, the company said “Google Store has sold through its inventory and completed sales of Pixel 3a.” This includes the Pixel 3a as well as the Pixel 3a XL.

If you’re thinking of getting one, supplies may still be available with a few partners. This could include offline sellers as well as online listings. However, the company won’t be shipping any more units directly.

The sale closure means Google has no midrange phone to offer under the Pixel brand. However, this is also a positive indication if you’ve been waiting for the Pixel 4a. The Pixel 3a was launched last year and a successor is much-needed at this point.

The successor, Pixel 4a, has been delayed by a couple of months due to the Coronavirus pandemic. With no more Pixel 3a stocks coming in, it’s safe to assume Google is focusing its supply chain and logistics resources on the Pixel 4a.

It was then speculated that the smartphone will be announced in June. However, a reliable tipster had recently claimed that the Pixel 4a may go official on July 13.

As far as specifications go, the Pixel 4a is expected to sport a 5.8-inch OLED display with Full HD+ resolution and a punch-hole camera. Powering the phone could be a Snapdragon 730 processor along with 6GB RAM. We expect a 12-megapixel camera on the rear along with an 8-megapixel front camera.

LG Velvet Review: New breed of flagship killer?



Over the years, LG was once a pioneer in the smartphone industry with their G and V smartphone series. These phones are packed with a lot of punch and boast new and exciting features.

But LG has forgotten one thing, and that is how to fix their unexciting phone designs. From the G7 ThinQ all the way to V50 ThinQ 5G, those phones almost look unchanged. They might have been minor changes with the newer V60 ThinQ 5G, but it’s still not as eye-catching as other contenders.

The LG Velvet isn’t a replacement to their ever-existing flagship series. Instead, LG tries to reimagine things by making sure they produce products that cater the needs of not just tech nerds, but other types of consumers as well.

Here’s our in-depth review of the LG Velvet.

Samsung accidentally leaked Galaxy Note 20 Ultra images

Most accurate render so far



Recently, Ice Universe leaked what we previously thought was the Samsung Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. However, after a follow-up tweet, the alleged photos were apparently just photos of the Galaxy Note 10+ used as representations. Despite the clamor for the Galaxy Note 20, we were left in the dark, as far as the form factor goes.

Fortunately, Samsung has apparently solved that problem themselves. The company’s Russian website has seemingly leaked unreleased images of the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra. At the time of this writing, the website had already taken down the official page. Thankfully, Ishan Agarwal, a notable tech leaker, has preserved the images in all their glory.

First and foremost, the images are crispy clean, potentially confirming the legitimacy of the leak. The depicted model shines in a pinkish copper color. According to the renders, the Ultra variant will come with a triple-rear camera setup and a sleek S Pen.

Secondly, Ice Universe has recently tweeted again about the upcoming series, revealing the pinkish tint of the copper variant. Other tweets have also revealed potential smartphone cases and screen protectors for the series.

Regardless, the leaker’s tweets are the cherry on top. In this particular case, Samsung’s latest blunder has revealed the best possible look at the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra before the official launch. Given the company’s usual launch schedule, Samsung will likely launch the device sometime in August, following a reported three-device launch window from August to October.
