This week was a big one. Four major events unfolded and brought a variety of devices. Apple kicked things off with the unveiling of its new M1 Pro and M1 Max processors, which power the new MacBook Pro 14 and 16. The M1 Pro has an 8-core CPU, while the M1 Max can offer a 32-core GPU.
The new MacBook Pro’s have mini-LED Liquid Retina XDR displays, three USB-C ports, a full-sized HDMI port, an SDXC card slot, and see the return of the MagSafe charging port.
The AirPods 3 are here with 3D audio, a new water-resistant design, up to 6 hours of playback and a price of $199/€199.
The Google Pixel 6 and 6 Pro arrived with a Tensor processor, new 50MP main cameras, a 4x periscope zoom on the 6 Pro and high-refresh displays – a 6.7-inch 120Hz 1440p on the Pixel 6 Pro and a 6.4-inch 90Hz 1080p on the Pixel 6. Both are available for purchase now for $599/€649 and $899/€899, respectively.
Samsung unveiled the Bespoke Edition Galaxy Z Flip3 and Galaxy Watch4 with the Bespoke Studio, which lets you choose the color of the Front, Back, and Frame of the phone and gives you 49 color combinations to choose from.
Huawei launched the nova 9 in Europe with a price of €499 – it features a Snapdragon 778G with 8GB of RAM, a 6.57-inch 120Hz OLED and a 4,300mAh battery.
That’s it for this week. See you here in a seven days!
Looks like the Ultra model in the S22 series will offer a tangibly different look compared to the other two models.
Edit: Target promo leaks, revealing customers who pre-order will get a free pair of Google Pixel Buds A-Series.
The last 16″ MacBook Pro used an Intel Core-i9 (9th gen). The last MacBook Pros to be announced before these was the M1-powered 13″ model.
The Pixel 6 Pro is available only with 128GB storage in some places, often only in Black. In some countries it is completely out of stock.
AT&T has the highest markup for buying the Pixel 6 phones outright while T-Mobile offers the highest trade-in value for select devices.
Users in select markets can customize the Z Flip3 with two frame colors and can pick between five colors for the top and bottom panel on the back.
These two support variable refresh rate and auto low latency mode, so they got an official recommendation from the Xbox team.
