The hidden 160Hz screen option can be used by anyone that purchases an ASUS ROG Phone 3 gaming phone, where you can activate it with a single ADB command. The 160Hz screen option was discovered by XDA when searching through the settings app.

A debug command was found that enabled 160Hz refresh, with the 'adb shell setprop debug.vendor.asus.fps.eng 1' command. Once this is entered, there's a new 160Hz refresh option in the Settings > Display > Refresh Rate.

Anthony Garreffa | Sun, Jul 26 2020 7:38 PM CDT

Samsung is gearing up for its Unpacked 2020 event on August 5 where it will be unveiling the new Galaxy Fold, which is reportedly being re-branded to the Galaxy Z Fold 2 -- as well as the new family of Galaxy Note 20 smartphones, which you can read all about here.

But what about the next-gen Galaxy S21 smartphone?

Well, it seems Samsung could be powering the flagship version of its Galaxy S21 family, the Galaxy S21 Ultra, with its own Exynos 1000 processor. Samsung's in-house Exynos 1000 processor is reportedly being made on the 5nm node, and would be exclusive to the Galaxy S21 Ultra.

Samsung would reportedly only be using its Exynos 1000 inside of the Galaxy S21 Ultra, while the other models (Galaxy S21, Galaxy S21+) would use the cheaper, less powerful Exynos 992 chip.

The new ASUS ROG Phone 3 stands out with its large 6.6-inch 1080 x 2340 144Hz display, and powered by Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 865+ processor. We have 8GB, 12GB, and 16GB RAM offerings depending on the version you buy.

ASUS has used a 6.59-inch AMOLED panel with HDR 10+ support on the new ROG Phone 3, with a super-fast 144Hz refresh rate and 25ms touch latency. This means the ASUS ROG Phone 3 should be the fastest, smoothest gaming smartphone on the planet.

This is our best look at the Galaxy Z Fold 2 foldable smartphone

Anthony Garreffa | Mon, Jul 20 2020 9:24 PM CDT

We are getting closer and closer to Samsung's huge Unpacked 2020 event, where we will be treated to the virtual announcements of the Galaxy Note 20 seires of phones, as well as the new Galaxy Z Fold 2.

Samsung's new Galaxy Z Fold 2 and its story is slowly unfolding, where we thought it would be called the Galaxy Fold 2 -- successor to the current foldable Galaxy Fold smartphone. But it seems Samsung is re-branding it to the Galaxy Z Fold 2, which we have some final renders through fresh leaks.

The leak isn't exactly clear, but it seems to retain most of the design of the original Galaxy Fold -- but you'll notice that it has an upgraded camera system, and similar to the Galaxy Note 20 Ultra smartphone.

Samsung's new Galaxy Fold 2 could instead be called Galaxy Z Fold 2

Anthony Garreffa | Mon, Jul 20 2020 7:30 PM CDT

Samsung is expected to unveil its successor to the Galaxy Fold smartphone at its Unpacked 2020 event on August 5, where we should also be introduced to the new Galaxy Note 20 smartphones.

But when it comes to the Galaxy Fold successor most people thought it would be called the Galaxy Fold 2, but now we're seeing new reports of the 'Galaxy Z Fold 2' -- which seems to be a re-brand of the Galaxy Fold. Remember that Samsung has two foldable phones right now: the Galaxy Fold as its flagship foldable, while there's the cheaper, and clamshell-style Galaxy Z Flip.

The new reports suggest that Samsung's purported Galaxy Z Fold 2 will feature a 7.7-inch Youm On-Cell Touch AMOLED (Y-OCTA) display with a super-slick 120Hz display. Samsung will also reportedly be using the same Ultra-Thin glass that it did on the Galaxy Z Flip smartphone.

ASUS is set to unleash its next-gen ROG Phone 3 gaming smartphone, with the new ROG Phone 3 passing through Taiwanese certification -- and now, some leaked renders for us to gander at.

As you can see in these renders, ASUS should be going for its meanest-looking ROG Phone yet with the ROG Phone 3. It looks like we're going to get some gaming triggers on the ROG Phone 3, as well as a unique side-mounted charging port.

The side-mounted charging port has two benefits: first, you can charge your phone while you're gaming -- and secondly, it can be used to plug gaming accessories from ASUS into.

These new Pixel 5 XL renders see Google rocking 3.5mm headphone jack

Anthony Garreffa | Thu, Jul 9 2020 11:26 PM CDT

Google isn't far away from unveiling its new Pixel 5 and Pixel 5 XL smartphones, so new renders aren't a surprise before its big launch in the coming months.

The leaks tease that the Pixel 5 and Pixel 5 XL don't look that different, with the Pixel 5 XL just being a "bigger" and probably beefier (battery, RAM possibly) version of the Pixel 5. This isn't a surprise, but the renders including a 3.5mm headphone jack is.

The new Pixel 5 and Pixel 5 XL renders have 3.5mm headphone jacks at the top, which would be a big surprise from Google. Inside, we should see the Pixel 5 using Qualcomm's more mid-range Snapdragon 765 while the higher-end Pixel 5 XL would be powered by the Snapdragon 865.

ASUS ROG Phone 3 teased: overclocked Snapdragon 865, huge 16GB of RAM

Anthony Garreffa | Thu, Jun 18 2020 9:46 PM CDT

ASUS is always pushing the boundaries of what is possible inside of a gaming smartphone, so the next-gen ROG Phone 3 should be no different -- right? Yep.

According to new leaks on the upcoming ASUS ROG Phone 3 we should expect Qualcomm's Snapdragon 865 to power it, but an overclocked SoC that will see the SoC clocked at a huge 3.09GHz -- up from the already fast 2.84GHz. It should be joined by a huge 16GB of RAM (!!!) and 512GB of storage.

As for the display, ASUS is tipped to use a 6.59-inch AMOLED display that should be FHD+, and I would be disappointed to see anything less than a 120Hz refresh rate. Even all of this, there's not much difference between the ROG Phone 2 and ROG Phone 3 -- but there will be small changes under the hood that give this iteration a nice boost of its predecessor.
