Google Pixel 3 screen sizes

Google is set to release the third iteration of their smartphone later this year, which will be the Google Pixel 3. Rumors have been swirling regarding when it may actually debut, and the latest talk suggests that it will be releasing in mid-October. Verizon is expected to be the phone provider, though unlocked versions will also be made available.

The company is expected to release three phones this year, which is according to Tech Radar. This has been suggested previously due to leaked code names from last year, which are “crosshatch,” albacore” and “blueline.” It seems like each of these three phones will appeal to consumers of different price ranges, with a high-end, mid-range and entry-level phone being offered.

These phones are expected to launch with the latest Android software, which is Android P OS. Android P is likely to support gestures with the new home button, with various swiping motions performing different actions. The rear of the phone is expected to have a two-toned finish and a fingerprint scanner. As for measurements, the Pixel 3 will be 5.4 inches and the 3 XL will be 6.2 inches.

Google is said to be planning to use Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 (via Toms Guide) in both phones, though other than that little is known regarding what is actually under the hood. The 3 and 3XL will have dual camera lenses, with the rear-facing lens being singular. Leaked images have suggested that the devices will be all glass, which seems to suggest that wireless charging is in.

Much more information on these devices will be coming soon, so be sure to stay tuned for that.

Despite popular belief, PS4 sales in the UK skyrocketed last year

PS4 sales in the UK climbed by a shocking 633 percent year-over-year in 2023, so apparently the old system isn’t dead yet. The previous year’s very limited supply of the system is likely a major factor in this figure, since the console’s lifespan was drastically reduced because of chip shortages caused by the pandemic. Still, it’s proof that PlayStation’s original platform has unmet demand.

With the very low prices of PS4 software (both in-store and online at the PS Store), this strategy makes a lot of sense. Plus, it’s future-proof, so there’s no harm in stocking up on PS4s while new-gen pricing is still high, since if you decide to switch to a PS5 in the future, you can transfer all of your purchases across. Not to mention that the majority of new releases still come out on the PS4, with several offering free PS5 upgrades.

While the percentage rise may seem huge, real PS4 sales will probably be much lower. It’s a sign that the gadget, which is now a decade old, isn’t completely dead yet, and we expect it to keep receiving maintenance for a while longer. Of course, this is great news for Sony, because the company would rather have PS4 players playing on its last-gen gadget than none at all, even if it would love to have them upgrade to PS5.

A PS5 firmware update on a cold winter morning is unmatched. The latest PS5 system software update is 23.02–08.40.00 from Sony. Does this one add useful features or just boost system performance?

Though closer to the latter, it’s more than Sony’s favorite patch note. It fixes security issues, improves messages and usability, and boosts system software performance. Official patch notes for this 1.185GB update:

  • We updated system software security
  • We improved system software stability and performance
  • Some screens now have better messages and usability

That’s it. PS5 gets another win to recover from its midweek slump. Do you share our enthusiasm for this firmware update? Comment below. To spice things up, make your comment rhyme.

Belgian developer Larian Studios’ work on Baldur’s Gate 3’s Xbox Series S version will improve performance on all platforms, including PS5. The game’s fifth major patch, expected to launch this week, will include upgrades and new features. More details will be revealed later today.

Director of Publishing Michael Douse says PS5 performance improvements may be the “least exciting thing” in the title’s next update, so it sounds like a big one. Larian Studios employees are proud of “finally” implementing tweaks, fixes, and changes, Douse says. Later today, we’ll bring you all the Baldur’s Gate 3 update details.
