Google Pixel Fold 512GB sold out in the US

The Google Pixel Fold can now be pre-ordered, but the top model with 512 GB of storage is already officially sold out in the USA. The high price of $1,919 (€2,019 in Europe) for the top-of-the-line model, available only in Obsidian Black, doesn’t seem to have deterred buyers.

However, the official Google Store still offers the 256 GB version in the colors Obsidian and Porcelain (black and white). Anyone who still decides on the 512 GB model can register on a waiting list. The other three markets where Google officially sells the Pixel Fold are the UK, Germany and Japan. There you can already pre-order the Pixel Fold with 512 GB. Delivery is expected from June 28th.


Redmi K60 Ultra / Xiaomi 13T Pro: new leak reveals design

Xiaomi has not yet announced the Redmi K60 Ultra for the Chinese market, which will also come overseas later as the Xiaomi 13T Pro. The well-known tipster Digital Chat Station, on the other hand, shared the first design sketches today. They do not give a complete picture, but at least an idea of what the upcoming Xiaomi cell phone could look like.

The Redmi K60 Ultra / Xiaomi 13T Pro is pictured with a thin frame, a central front camera and a square camera module on the back. The camera island houses two large-looking camera sensors, a third one that’s smaller, and a dual-LED flash. We can probably assume that the smaller sensor is a 2 megapixel macro camera. But there are no details about the two main cameras yet.

It’s hard to tell from the sketches, but the sides look flat, as does the back. The design is a bit reminiscent of the current iPhones. According to a report from March, it will be powered by a Dimensity 9200 chipset. The 144 Hz OLED display has a size of 6.7 inches and the battery should charge with a fast 100 watts.


YouTube discontinues Stories

YouTube Stories will be retired starting June 26, and all final stories shared on that day will expire within seven days. The related community post suggests that YouTube is removing Stories in favor of YouTube Shorts and community posts.

YouTube believes that community posts are a great way to share “lightweight updates” and start discussions among followers. Shorts, on the other hand, provide more traffic and followers than stories. YouTube Stories first launched as Reels in 2017 before being rebranded as Stories a year later.
