What you need to know

  • Honor is inviting everyone to the global launch event of the flagship Magic 3 Series on August 12.
  • The new devices will be equipped with the latest Snapdragon 888 Plus chipset.
  • Rumors suggest three new models are coming, including one with a 6.76-inch OLED display.

After the unveiling and release of the mid-range Honor 50 series just last month, there's already word on the net of new Honor smartphones coming soon. Rumors suggest the upcoming "Magic 3" will be a proper flagship series, and thanks to a press invite sent out by Honor on Thursday, it looks like we won't have to wait much longer to learn more about the new devices.

The notice sent out by Honor invites those interested in the new Honor Magic 3 Series to a live global launch event happening in just a few weeks on August 12, 2021. Along with telling us a bit about the new phones, the event also promises to share a few key updates about Honor and how it has reached new benchmarks in innovative design and technology.

The event will be streamed on Honor's website as well as several major streaming websites beginning at 12:30pm BST.

Though not much is confirmed regarding the Magic 3 Series devices, Honor has already announced that they will feature Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 888 Plus chipset for faster and best-in-class performance, making them the first Honor devices to do so.

Though there are no other confirmed details, the well-known Weibo leaker Digital Chat Station as well as reliable tipster @RODENT950 have shared some potential specifications that appear to have some legitimacy behind them.

If the rumors are to be believed, we're expecting to see three new models when Honor debuts the Magic 3 lineup next month, including one which could feature a 6.76-inch OLED display. That model is said to have a dual punch-hole design with QHD+ screen resolution, along with support for 66W/100W wired fast charging and 50W wireless charging.

Considering the press invite shows a close-up of a camera lens, it's also suspected that the new devices will feature a powerful camera setup. Depending on the price and specs, it's possible one could even land on our list of the best Android phones soon enough.

Honor's Magic 3 Series event will be available to stream globally at 12:30pm BST on August 12, 2021, so be sure you're there if you want to be among the first to learn about these new devices.

FCC approves broadband 'nutrition labels' to help you shop for internet

The FCC is pushing nutrition labels for internet providers. What you need to know The FCC has voted to move forward with new rules for ISPs to display nutrition labels. The proposed rulemaking would mandate ISPs to display relevant speed and pricing information to consumers. This should make it easier for consumers to make an informed decision on their broadband. The FCC voted unanimously on a plan that would allow consumers to make better decisions about their broadband internet. The proposal will require internet service providers (ISPs) - including many of the best wireless carriers in the U.S. — to display "nutrition labels" that display relevant service information for consumers at point-of-sale. This includes internet speeds, allowances, and clear information on rates. "If you walk into any grocery store and pull boxes of cereal from the shelves, you can easily compare calories and carbohydrates," FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel said in a statemen

Yandex spins out self-driving car unit from its Uber JV, invests $150M into newco

Self-driving cars are still many years away from becoming a ubiquitous reality, but today one of the bigger efforts to build and develop them is taking a significant step out as part of its strategy to be at the forefront for when they do. Yandex — the publicly-traded Russian tech giant that started as a search engine but has expanded into a number of other, related areas (similar to US counterpart Google) — today announced that it is spinning out its self-driving car unit from MLU BV — a ride-hailing and food delivery joint venture it operates in partnership with Uber. The move comes amid reports that Yandex and Uber were eyeing up an IPO for MLU  last year. At the time, the JV was estimated to be valued at around $7.7 billion. It’s not clear how those plans will have been impacted in recent months, with COVID-19 putting huge pressure on ride-hailing and food-delivery businesses globally, and IPOs generally down compared to a year ago. In that context, spinning out the unit could

Slack’s new integration deal with AWS could also be about tweaking Microsoft

Slack and Amazon announced a big integration late yesterday afternoon. As part of the deal, Slack will use Amazon Chime for its call feature, while reiterating its commitment to use AWS as its preferred cloud provider to run its infrastructure. At the same time, AWS has agreed to use Slack for internal communications. Make no mistake, this is a big deal as the SaaS communications tool increases its ties with AWS, but this agreement could also be about slighting Microsoft and its rival Teams product by making a deal with a cloud rival. In the past Slack CEO Stewart Butterfield has had choice words for Microsoft saying the Redmond technology giant sees his company as an “existential threat.” Whether that’s true or not — Teams is but one piece of a huge technology company — it’s impossible not to look at the deal in this context. Aligning more deeply with AWS sends a message to Microsoft, whose Azure infrastructure services compete with AWS. Butterfield didn’t say that of course
