As we reach another week’s end it’s time to recap the major events from the past seven days.
Apple kicked off its Worldwide developer congress with a lengthy online keynote. The newly unveiled iOS 15 as well as iPadOS, tvOS and watchOS brought few major changes. And the MacBook Pro and M1X chip announcements that were tipped didn’t happen, despite later leaks showing the M1X tag in official Apple promo images.
OnePlus announced a more affordable version of its popular Nord 5G. The OnePlus Nord CE 5G starts at €299/INR 22,999 and improves on the battery and main camera of its more premium sibling, making up for a compelling offer.
Sony announced the second generation of its truly wireless earbuds with active noise cancellation – €280 WF-1000XM4. We reviewed and loved them for the smaller size and upgrades across the board from their predecessors.
Samsung announced a new 50MP ISOCELL JN1 sensor that has the world’s smallest pixels at 0.64μm. It will produce 12.5MP images in “every smartphone, from mid-range to flagship” and should appear in phones soon.
Those were the key stories of the week, while the full list is below. See you next one!
The buds have redesigned hardware and a better chipset to improve audio quality to and from the buds, as well as enable a few clever features.
