The Samsung Galaxy Watch3 has been leaked almost completely at this point. There's some we still don't know — how much it'll cost, for example — but we're fairly sure it's going to be revealed on August 5th at Samsung Unpacked, we've got most of the specs at this point, and even a look at a live Watch 3 with a band getting unboxed and set up in a hands-on video.

Samsung remains the sole Android manufacturer really trying to take on the iPad these days, and it looks like the company is not lowering the effort it's putting into its Tab S series. After we've already seen first renders of the Galaxy Tab S7+ and got some details on a 12.4-inch screen and the dimensions, SamMobile now provides an almost complete overview of the rest of the tablet's hardware specifications.
We got our first proper look at the design of the Galaxy Note20 when Samsung itself accidentally (or otherwise) posted renders of a fetching bronze model on its Russian website last week.

The biggest issue with notches and punch holes is that they take up valuable screen space and break up the aesthetics of smartphone displays. This is arguably even more true of punch-hole camera cutouts that sit on either side of the screen since symmetry is so pleasing to our eyes. Enter new information concerning Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Fold 2, which suggests it'll do away with the huge notch in favor of a slightly awkward-looking punch-hole.
Asus's ROG phones have always been jam-packed with the best hardware you can think of, and it looks like this won't be different for the next smartphone in the series. The ROG Phone 3 has hit the Chinese regulation agency TENAA, and it spilled almost all of the internals. It will run Android 10 out of the box and comes with an overclocked, 5G-enabled Snapdragon 865, and up to 16GB of RAM and 512GB of storage. Other than the regulatory information, we've also got a first look at the handset thanks to videos and photos leaked on Weibo, via MySmartPrice.
All rumors suggest that Google will only release the Pixel 4a in one size, even though there is some evidence that the company initially also worked on an XL model. Some CAD renders of this phone that should not be have now been leaked by Pigtou and @xleaks7, showing what that handset would've looked like. Spoiler alert: It's just a bigger Pixel 4a, with the exception of dual cameras on the back.
This week, Samsung shared the unsurprising news that the next Galaxy Note series will be presented during an online-only event, and now, some of the first renders of the Note20 have been leaked by Pigtou and xleaks7.
