The OnePlus 9 series is coming soon. After a flurry of rumors over the past few months, hype for the anticipated flagship series is at an all-time high. If previous rumors are to be believe, the series will launch sometime within the next month. Today, a new report once again confirms that the OnePlus 9 series will launch in March. However, besides spoiling the launch window, the report also confirms the existence of a third entry into the series, the OnePlus 9R.

According to renowned leaker Ishan Agarwal (via 91mobiles), OnePlus is launching four new devices sometime in mid-March for the OnePlus 9 series: OnePlus 9, OnePlus 9 Pro, OnePlus 9R, and the OnePlus Watch.

Of course, the OnePlus 9 and the OnePlus 9 Pro is already well-known. Regardless of whatever additional devices will launch in March, the company will certainly out the two main entries during the launch.

Under another name, though, the OnePlus 9R has also been previously rumored. The newly rumored smartphone will supposedly take the place of the budget-friendly OnePlus 9 Lite or the 9E. According to previous rumors, the 6.5-inch device will sport the Snapdragon 690 chipset, 8GB of RAM, 128GB of internal storage, and 5000mAh of battery.

In other news, the launch will also see the company’s first-ever smartwatch, the OnePlus Watch. If you’ve followed the rumors over the past year, the wearable has been a long time coming.

Though the leaker did not mention when the launch will exactly happen, mid-March is just around the country.

Nokia created a new Nokia 3310 but it’s just cake

After years of languishing in the darkness, Nokia has ascended back into the spotlight as a staple of the smartphone industry. That happened five years ago. HMD Global, the current owner of Nokia’s products, has a lot to be thankful for. And what’s a better way to celebrate a milestone anniversary than with a cake? To celebrate the fifth anniversary of Nokia’s new era, the company has partnered with renowned cake sculptor Michelle Wibowo.

The cake is designed after none other than the iconic Nokia 3310. Though it’s the newer version of the classic phone, the cake looks hyper-realistic. It looks as great as the actual phone. However, it was made with chocolate sponge and vanilla buttercream. The casing, on the other hand, is made with a hand-painted sugar shell casing.

Of course, Nokia has since launched a flurry of other phones since then. But the brand is especially indebted to the Nokia 3310 as one of the early devices that catapulted it to the top of the tech world in the early 2000s. The classic Nokia 3310 was launched in September 2000.

Michelle Wibowo is a famous cake sculptor known around the world. She has created works of art like the Hogwarts Castle and lifelike depictions of popular figures like Queen Elizabeth II. The hyper-realistic Nokia 3310 cake certainly echoes the past trend of creating everyday items with cake.

Besides the iconic black variant, the red variant is one of the most popular color options for an iPhone. The now-ubiquitous (PRODUCT)RED version is more than just a sleek option, though. Apple’s partnership with (RED) has always been about raising awareness for HIV and AIDS. Now, 15 years later, Apple wants to continue the fight further with new PRODUCT(RED) products.

This holiday season, Apple is launching red variants of the iPhone 13 and the iPhone 13 mini. Outside of the iPhone lineup, the company is also introducing a PRODUCT(RED) variant of the Apple Watch Series 7. The wearable will also get six new watch faces with the PRODUCT(RED) theme. It also gets a few red strap options for more customization: Braided Solo Loop, Sport Band, and Sport Loop straps.

From now until the end of the year, Apple is donating a portion of the proceeds from the variants to the Global Fund’s COVID-19 Response. According to the initiative, combating COVID-19 will help the Global Fund redirect its efforts to fight AIDS.

Also, from December 6 to the end of the year, Apple is donating US$ 1 to the Global Fund for every purchase made with Apple Pay through Apple.com, the Apple Store app, and actual Apple Stores.
