OnePlus Nord is the name, leaking budget phone is the game

Published

on

OnePlus Nord is the name of the budget-friendly smartphone the brand OnePlus has releasing next. This next-generation smartphone line will start with a single model that’s not quite revealed in full just yet, but should be soon. Today was a big day in the history of the phone line as the OnePlus crew revealed that it was, indeed, called OnePlus Nord, officially.

Today we’re looking at a wide variety of clues dropped by the PR group in charge of OnePlus Nord. They’ve taken a very interesting approach, embracing the “leaker” culture that permeates smartphone news and releases for the past decade. In this, they’ve also embraced the social network-loving culture of consumers that brought the OnePlus brand to prominence in the first place.

OnePlus revealed today that “there were many theories about the new OnePlus phone. Lite wasn’t quite right,” said the brand, “Z wasn’t either. Meet Nord. OnePlus Nord.” This was revealed on Twitter.

The most interesting bit of this campaign appears on Instagram, where the brand’s been extra cheeky about “leaking” information on the Nord brand. That OnePlus Instagram account straight up called out several prominent leakers for attempting to figure out the names and specifications of the next smartphone in the brand.

It’s expected that the brand will release OnePlus Nord in India and another region or two, with a “Limited” release in the USA. We’ll see what that means, more than likely, in the very near future. Stay tuned and we shall see! Take a peek at the timeline below for more information on a device that’s been leaked in (nearly) full before it reaches prime time.

Motorola Moto X30 Pro Will Have An Unusual Camera System

Published

on

This is just the tip of the iceberg for the Moto X30 Pro. The strangest thing about the model won’t be its unusually large camera sensor, especially since Xiaomi already claimed that crown. Instead, it will be the use of three focal lengths in the camera system that could mean the removal of one traditional part of that group.

Motorola’s Weibo account revealed that the Moto X30 Pro will have a 35mm focal point at its widest. This will be joined by a 50mm telephoto that could have a 2x magnification, as well as an 80mm longer telephoto option. If this is an accurate description, it would suggest that the phone will ditch the ultra-wide shooter in favor of two telephoto cameras when some of its peers opt to eschew telephoto cameras to make way for a macro alternative.

Whether this will give the Moto X30 Pro an actual advantage over other high-end phones this year remains to be seen, literally. It sounds almost like a mixed bag, at least in the camera department, though the rest of the rumored specs are on par for a 2022 flagship. The Moto X30 Pro, which could go by the name Motorola Frontier in global markets, is expected to run on a Snapdragon 8+ Gen 1 processor, bear a 6.67-inch 144Hz OLED screen, and boast 125W super-fast charging for its modest 4,500mAh battery.

How To Fix Amazon Prime Video Not Streaming In 4K

Published

on

Not all Amazon Prime Video titles are available in 4K quality. Older movies and shows often do not support that format, and even some newer flicks will still be unavailable for a variety of reasons ranging from licensing to technical difficulties. As a result, your title of choice might look less-than-perfect, not due to a fault on Amazon’s end, but simply because that title may not support 4K in the first place. 

Amazon has a list of titles available in 4K, so checking whether the one you’re trying to watch is, is fairly easy. You can see all the 4K offerings by heading over to the official Amazon website. The list is not very intuitive in the sense that you can’t check for specifics within the results as this is already a narrowed-down list. However, you can also simply type in the title of your movie or show into the search bar above to check whether it’s available on Prime Video and in 4K.

You can also search directly on Amazon Prime Video. Any variation of “4K,” “4K movies ultra HD,” “4K film,” or even something more specific like “4K romantic comedies” should produce a list of titles that you can watch right now. If you managed to locate your title on one of these lists and yet it still looks underwhelming, there may be other issues at hand.
