Welcome to this week’s recap of the most exciting stories. Let’s get started!

Asus unveiled the Zenfone 7 and Zenfone 7 Pro and they’re mostly identical. What sets them apart is the 7 Pro uses a Snapdragon 865+, has OIS on its main and zoom camera and has a 256GB model, while the vanilla 7 is SD865, has no OIS on its cameras and tops out at 128GB. The pair launch globally on September 1.

Realme has two launches planned for next week. The Realme X7 and X7 and X7 Pro will be made official in China on September 1 with 120Hz AMOLED screens, while the Realme 7 and 7 Pro will go live in India on September 3 with 64MP cameras (the Pro will also have 65W charging).

Apple’s next crop of iPhones is featuring in more and more leaks and reports. One industry insider rumor suggested that the iPhone 12 Pros will miss out on 120Hz screens and opt for 60Hz because of a lack of 120Hz driver ICs. However apparent leaked images from an iPhone 12 Pro Max appear to show a setting to enable high refresh rate. It appears that a decision will be made at the very last minutes, depending on how manufacturing progresses.

The Sony Xperia 5 II is coming. Sony said it’s announcing it on September 17, while an official press render gave us our first look at the phone and no surprise – it looks like a scaled-down version of the Xperia 1 II, only with a missing ToF sensor on the back.

We came across two of Xiaomi’s upcoming phones. The Mi 10T and Mi 10T Pro will have 64MP and 108MP main cameras, respectively, a Snapdragon 865 on the regular and 865+ on the Pro, and likely 144Hz IPS LCD displays. The other device is the Poco X3, which will come with a 64MP camera, 5,160mAh battery and 33W charging.

Those were the highlights of the week. See you next one!
