Microsoft schedules an Xbox Games Showcase event on July 23
You could get your new Samsung Galaxy Note 20 on August 21
Microsoft just sent out some press invitations for their new Xbox Showcase Event which will happen on July 23rd at 9AM PST. You’ll be able to watch it on YouTube, Twitch and the official Xbox social media handles. We’re expecting to see some exclusive titles like Halo Infinite, Gears of War, Hellblade 2 and more. At Sony’s Game Showcase Event we got to see the PS5’s design for the first time so we do hope that Microsoft has something nice prepared for this event as well and a couple of weeks ago we heard some leaks about a more affordable Xbox Series S so we hope that happens at this event.
New AirPods 3 would include System-in-Package technology
We’re expecting some new entry level AirPods for next year and, according to the latest research note from Ming Chi Kuo, we’re due for a design refresh. According to Kuo, the new AirPods will adopt a similar System-In-Package to the AirPods Pro to integrate the audio features into a smaller casing as, we know that the Pros bring smaller stems. These AirPods 3 are supposed to arrive in the first half of 2021 and that the current AirPods will be discontinued. This also means that the AirPods Pro should see components shipments grow from 50 to 100% due to the demand.
This alleged iPhone 12 box insert could confirm, no EarPods or power adapter
Speaking of Apple, let’s talk about the iPhone 12’s box… yeah the box. We have a new render that allegedly comes from a reliable source of the new box, and from the image we can tell that it’ll only bring two slots, one for the USB-C to Lightning Cable and the other one for the paperwork including the stickers that come with. We assume the second one is for paperwork because, it’s way too thin for the EarPods and for the charging brick. It also has a slim cutout at the top were we think the iPhone 12 will sit. Of course this isn’t official yet but, everything points to Apple making this move.

Here’s your first real-life look at the Samsung Galaxy Note 20, and it’s gorgeous
Here’s the first look at Samsung Galaxy Note 20’s display
We have an official date for the next Samsung Galaxy Unpacked event
And finally the hottest news today is that well, today seems to be official event confirmation day. First Microsoft, the OnePlus, now Samsung. The new Galaxy Unpacked was just made official for August 5th at 10AM Eastern Time, we’ll obviously have some live coverage and a dedicated Daily so make sure you subscribe. Thing is the image only reveals that special new copper color we saw leaked by none other than you know who. And speaking of leaks, the Note 20 just went through a 3C certification so we have some IRL images of it from a tipster on Twitter. These images are of the black color variant and we get to see the new triple camera array which still includes the periscope lens. We also get to see the S Pen which doesn’t look like it has changed much from the Note 10. Some users on Twitter claimed that these were dummies but according to another tipster, this is a fully working unit and we can confirm as the tipster also shared images of the display. These show off the tiny bezels, the centered punch hole and we’re assuming that this is the Note 20 Ultra or Plus because it brings a curved display instead of the flat we’re expecting for the regular Note 20.
