Motorola Razr 40 is coming to Europe in July

The more affordable Motorola Razr 40 arrives a few weeks after its more expensive sibling, the Razr 40 Ultra. Currently, the base model is only available in China via Lenovo’s online shop at a starting price of 4,000 CNY for the 8/128 GB model. A Czech retailer is already giving July 21 as the start date, which is a month from now. The price is 21,600 CZK, which corresponds to the equivalent of €910 / $993. A price of €800 was actually rumored for the euro zone.

Earlier this month, Motorola India tweeted that the Razr 40 series would be “coming soon”. However, neither model is available yet. The Razr 40 Ultra (called Razr+ in USA) is already available for pre-order in the US. The official start is on June 29th. The Razr+ can also be pre-ordered in Canada, but is already available in Mexico and Brazil.

The regular Motorola Razr 40 is already listed in Brazil, but there are no prices or a release date yet. So far, however, this is the only market in North and South America.


vivo X90s: storage options leaked

The vivo X90s arrives on Monday. It is already known that there will be a new color option – green instead of blue. Today, the smartphone showed up at the first retailer, revealing storage options, but not prices. 8/256GB, 12/256GB and 12/512GB are available for selection.

The vivo X90s will come onto the market as an updated variant of the X90 in versions only with UFS 4.0 storage. The UFS 3.1 variant was only available in 8/128 GB. That being said, the main difference from the regular X90 is likely to be the new Dimensity 9200+ chipset. This has higher CPU and GPU clock rates with lower power consumption at the same time.


Apple Self Service Repair Program now available for iPhone 14 and M2 MacBooks

The Apple Self Service Repair program is expanding to the iPhone 14 and iPhone 14 Pro and M2 MacBooks. This includes the MacBook Air 13 M2 as well as the 14-inch and 16-inch MacBook Pro M2. In addition, Apple offers support for True Depth camera and speaker repairs for the iPhone 12 and iPhone 13 and Mac desktops with the Apple M1 chip in the US, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Poland, Spain, Sweden, and in England. You can order genuine Apple parts, tools, and repair manuals for these devices.

In addition Apple is now making the system configuration process free for iPhone self-service repairs and Apple Repair Program members. The tool checks screens, batteries, Touch ID or Face ID and camera repairs on iPhones with genuine Apple parts. Previously, you had to contact Apple support to complete the process. First, put a repaired device into diagnostic mode and then follow the on-screen instructions to complete the system configuration.
