OnePlus Nord 3 specs leaked

The first alleged specifications of the upcoming OnePlus Nord 3 have appeared on the internet. Accordingly, the OnePlus smartphone has a 6.5-inch AMOLED display with FHD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. The drive is therefore either a MediaTek Dimensity 8100 or Dimensity 8200 chipset.

Leading the camera department is a 50-megapixel wide camera with OIS. There is also an 8 megapixel ultra-wide and probably a low-resolution depth sensor. Upfront, a 32-megapixel camera snaps selfies. The battery of the OnePlus Nord 3 should have a capacity of 4,500 or 5,000 mAh and charge with a fast 100 watts.

The OnePlus Nord 3 should not be confused with the OnePlus Nord CE 3, which is also currently doing the rounds in the rumor mill. The Nord CE 3 is said to offer a 6.7-inch LCD display with FullHD resolution, 120Hz refresh rate and HDR10 support. It is powered by the 5G-capable Snapdragon 695 chipset in combination with 8 GB RAM and 256 GB storage. The main camera of the Nord CE 3 has a resolution of 108 megapixels, plus two 2-megapixel sensors for depth data and macro photos.


Oppo Find N2 Flip: Global launch is on February 15th

Oppo is celebrating the global launch of the Find N2 Flip on February 15 in London. It’s the first foldable Oppo smartphone to be officially offered outside of China. This gives the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip4 (review) and the Motorola Razr 2022 powerful competition. The big Oppo Find N2 is not mentioned and, as already suspected, will most likely have to stay at home in China.

Oppo has already set up a live stream on YouTube for the London event, which we linked above. The event begins at 2:30 PM local time or 3:30 PM CET, 9:30 AM EST, 6:30 AM PST and 8:00 PM IST.


Google Lens searches any screen content on Android

During a presentation in Paris, Google announced a new update for Google Lens on Android devices. “In the coming months” comes a feature that allows you to search for any screen content with Lens on Android devices. As Google put it during the presentation, “if you can see it, you can search it”.

You can search for building names, cooking recipes, car models or any image. The whole thing also works across websites and apps. All you have to do is stay with the current screen content and start the lens search. At the same event, Google also announced an update to its multi-search function: in the future, image searches can be refined with text.

In the tweet above, Google starts an image search and then adds text to find results in a different style. At the same event, Google also unveiled Bard, its ChatGPT rival, soon to become part of Google Search. That fits in with Microsoft, who just this week announced their AI-powered updates to Bing and Edge.
