Apple sent out invites for a September 15 event, which will be focused around the new Apple Watch Series 6 and likely an affordable variant of the Apple Watch Series 3. A new Apple iPad Air is also expected to go live at the event, but no iPhone announcements.

Speaking of iPhone, new rumors suggest that the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 will launch first with the highest-end 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max to launch last. Apple will reportedly ramp up iPhone 12 series production by the end of the month.

Motorola unveiled the foldable Razr 5G. It features a more rigid folding screen design with a better hinge, a Snapdragon 765G, a higher-res 48MP main camera, a slightly lower $1.399 price tag and a physical SIM tray (not to mention no carrier exclusivity this time).

Android 11 was seeded to Pixel and other smartphones, while Huawei unveiled both EMUI 11 and HarmonyOS 2.0, coming to smartphones next year.

The Samsung Galaxy M51 brought its 7,000mAh battery to the Indian market, while the Galaxy S20 FE was briefly shown on Samsung’s Philippine website with a 6.5-inch Super Dynamic display (120Hz), triple camera and 4,500mAh battery.
