Google Pixel 3 XL leak reveals ‘Clearly White’ color option in the wild

With the Pixel 3 and Pixel XL 3 expected to launch within the next few months, it’s no surprise that we’re starting to see an increase in leaks surrounding Google’s upcoming handsets.

The latest leak comes from XDA Developers via forum user ‘dr.guru’, who has allegedly given us our best look yet at the Google Pixel XL 3 with some high quality hands-on images of the purported device. 

The images, which are said to be of the Pixel XL 3’s ‘Clearly White’ color variant, seem to back up previous reports regarding Google’s forthcoming phablet, including one rumor that the handset would sport a notch on its face (and a rather large one, at that), two front-facing cameras and a bottom front-facing speaker. 

Based on the device’s Fastboot screen, the handset in question is packing 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage. According to dr.guru, the supposed Pixel XL 3 is unable to boot any further because it has been  “remotely erased read more

Leaked DJI Mavic 2 advert confirms Pro and Zoom models

If DJI was keen on keeping its newest consumer drone under wraps, it has failed utterly. An image of the upcoming Mavic 2 drone was first leaked online earlier this month, but UK store Argos has published a catalog that shows off the new drone in a very prominent ad which also lists the drone’s features.

The accidental leak shows off two models of the DJI Mavic 2, which hasn’t even been launched by the manufacturer yet. How a major retailer could inadvertently publish an ad before an official launch is unclear – either Argos mistakenly jumped the gun or DJI failed to inform the store of the cancellation of the launch event.

According to drone news publisher DroningOn, a Facebook user by the name of Isa Turan contacted DJI via the social media platform to ask whether the leak was legitimate or a photoshop gimmick and was told the catalog was printed before the ‘See the Bigger Picture’ event was postponed.

Google’s new phones could come with a smart Pixel Stand dock

We know that Google is preparing to launch a couple of Pixel 3 phones later this year, and now there are hints that a Pixel Stand charging dock is on the way too. Among the features it’s said to include is seamless Google Assistant integration.

In other words, put your Pixel phone down in your Pixel Stand, and you can then ask Google Assistant questions even while the phone is locked, 9to5Google reports. It sounds similar to the charging docks that Amazon recently unveiled, which essentially turn your Amazon Fire tablet into an Echo Show speaker.

Reference to the Pixel Stand has been found deep in the code for a new version of the Google app, so as rumors go, this one is fairly plausible. The dock might also feature wireless charging, something which the Pixel phones are tipped to offer this year.

Here’s a sneak preview of what the Magic Leap One interface looks like

The Magic Leap One has been a long time coming, a headset that transports you into a magical augmented reality world, but a proper release for the gadget is now edging closer. We also now have some official shots of the interface from Magic Leap itself.

There’s a new developer guide to encourage app makers to start writing code for the upcoming device, and it shows off some of the menus and navigation screens. They only reveal so much, but it looks like the Magic Leap One will be easy to get around, with some crisp-looking UI on show in these screenshots.

The screens show an app menu, a social screen for connecting with friends, a more conventional text menu, a voice recognition screen, and an alien-blasting game. For navigating menus more easily, the real world fades out of focus.

How to watch the Hungarian Grand Prix: stream F1 live from anywhere

Hungarian Grand Prix – where and when

As it is every year, the 2018 Hungary Grand Prix will be at the 4.4km/2.7 mile Hungaroring less than an hour north-east of Budapest.

The Hungarian GP itself is on Sunday July 29 at 3.10pm local time (2.10pm BST, 9.10am ET, 6.10am PT)

When Lewis Hamilton approached the grid last weekend, 14th in qualifying and 8 points behind Sebastian Vettel in the F1 Drivers’ Championship, only in his wildest dreams could he have imagined that he’d roll into the Hungarian Grand Prix with a 17 point advantage over his rival. To see how the Hungarian Grand Prix goes, you can stream F1 live with our advice in this guide.
