Samsung Galaxy S20 5G UW is now available on Verizon
If you remember, a couple of weeks ago we talked about how the regular Galaxy S20 5G was making its way to Verizon, meaning yes, the original only supported Sub-6, but this new one now included mmWave. Now, you can finally get an S20 from Verizon and it will be available in Cosmic Gray, Cloud Pink and Cloud White. It costs the same $999 as everywhere else but, they’re giving you $150 in credit if you get it today on a 24 month installment plan. Yeah, already late, I know, but you can still try.
Customers are reporting a bug in their iPhone 11’s display
If you’ve been following my social media, which you should, you know that my iPhone 11 Pro died on me a couple of months ago. First I thought it was a problem only my unit was having, so I didn’t make a big deal out of it, but I was wrong. A bunch of users on Reddit are having a similar issue where their iPhone 11s are getting a greenish tint on the display when they unlock the device. The report claims it could be a software issue as it happens to all three iPhone 11 models and it happens when you have Dark Mode and Night Shift at the same time. If it is a software update, Apple could fix it with iOS 13.5.5 but at the moment there’s no other way to fix it. Here’s the problem though, my screen is dead. It’s completely white. It would intensify when the phone got hot, so I doubt that’s the way to fix the problem.
Apple has delayed iPhone 12 series launch to Q4 2020, suggests Broadcom chief
We know that the iPhone 12 line up is facing a very confusing time line with everything that’s happening. According to Bloomberg, Broadcom’s CEO discussed a “major product cycle delay” from a “large North American mobile phone” on an earnings conference call. He claims that their revenue in Q3 will be significantly lower and that they don’t expect to see an uptick until Q4. This means we could see the iPhone 12 until Q4 since it makes most of Broadcom’s Q3 earnings. This goes along with other reports from Ming Chi Kuo, the WSJ and more which have hinted to an October or November launch. We could also have the announcement on its usual schedule and some variants delayed, kind of like what happened with the iPhone 8 and the iPhone X.
Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series could let you choose between a curved or a flat display
And finally the hottest news today have to do with, well, something that I’ve wanted to see on a Galaxy Note for years, and that we might finally get, but NOT on all models. See, It looks like there’s more difference between the two upcoming Note variants than we thought. We have some new case renders for the Note 20 line up that show the phone from different angles. If you look at it from the side you can tell that the Note 20+ will be getting a curved display while the regular Note 20 seems to bring a flat screen. If this does happen, this may be the first flagship Samsung will be releasing without a curved display since the Galaxy S8. Even if yeah, the S20 is kinda flat. The leaks also show the camera array, but it looks pretty different than the other renders we’ve been seeing. We should take these with a grain of salt but the rest of the design checks out with the other leaks.
