​iPhone X to launch in 13 countries including Korea on November 24

The iPhone X will be launching in South Korea on November 24, Apple has announced, much earlier than anticipated.

The 10th anniversary edition iPhone will also launch on that date in Albania, Bosnia, Cambodia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Malaysia, Montenegro, Serbia, South Africa, Thailand, and Turkey.

It will also be launched in the city of Macau on the same date. Israel will get it a day earlier on November 23.

A December rollout for the 10th anniversary edition had previously been expected. Apple didn’t give a heads-up to local telcos before revealing the launch date, sources said.

Pre-orders will begin on November 17.

In Korea, the 256GB model is priced at 1.63 million won (around $1,450), the highest-priced iPhone in the country and pricier than in the US.

The iPhone 8 was launched in Korea on November 3, but sales have been relatively low, according to local telco officials, likely due to consumers waiting for the iPhone X.

In the countries where it is already available, the iPhone X has been outpacing iPhone 8 in sales, according to Localytics.

Razer Phone leaks with monstrous specs including 120Hz display, 4000mAh battery, dual cameras, and more

Razer obviously isn’t known for its smartphones. But with the company’s recent acquisition of Nextbit, many of us have been eagerly awaiting a potential Razer smartphone of sorts. Just two weeks ago, a picture of the alleged Razer device leaked showing off its dual cameras. Now, a mobile carrier in the UK has leaked a product page for the Razer Phone, and potato photo aside, it’s mighty interesting.

According to the product page that British mobile provider 3G UK posted, the Razer Phone will have some serious power under the hood. It’ll sport a 120Hz 5.72″ IGZO display, as well as 8GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, a giant 4000mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 4.0+, and THX-certified dual front-facing speakers with Dolby ATMOS. The dual camera setup out back consists of a 12MP f/1.75 wide-angle sensor and a 13MP f/2.6 zoom unit. There’s also something called “4G Super-Voice” listed, which appears to be some sort of tech that prevents dead zones. It looks like the phone will run a stock-ish version of Android, given the clean-looking lock screen. Oh, and check out that 13:37 Easter egg in the potatocam photo. Razer has a sense of humor.

The first image of the Razer Phone we saw.

Several specs aren’t listed here (and the ‘Specifications’ tab contains nothing), but we did come across a GFXBench page from a few weeks ago that says the Razer Phone will have a 1440p display, a Snapdragon 835, a 7MP front-facing camera, and Android 7.1.1 Nougat. Given how the rest of the specs listed there match up with those that 3G UK did provide, the authenticity isn’t questionable. The Nextbit Robin-inspired design matches up with the TechByte leaked image we saw initially, complete with near-90° corners and small circular buttons.

A reddit user (/u/The_King_of_Okay) did dig up two links pointing to Razer becoming an official partner with 3G UK and Three as a whole (3G is, confusingly, a subsidiary of Three), indicating that Razer is working hard to expand its smartphone brand. In fact, the 3G UK press release goes as far as to say, “We may even see Razer-branded handsets exclusively on Three, offering all the power needed by gamers.”

Razer is expected to have its “biggest unveiling” on November 1st, and I wouldn’t be surprised if the Razer Phone ended up being the subject of it. After all, this is a big stepping stone for a primarily PC-focused company. Given the specs listed here, I personally can’t wait to see what Razer has in store.

Google Home Gets 50 Kids Experiences, Including Disney Audio Game, Fairy Tales – Variety

Google is looking to make its Google Home line of smart speakers more family-friendly with the addition of 50 new audio experiences tailored for the little ones. This includes  games and activities produced in partnership with Disney and Sports Illustrated.

Some of the newly-launched activities are designed to be educational. For instance, there’s an audio experience produced by Study.com and a space trivia game. Google’s assistant now even knows how to respond to “Okay Google, help me with my homework.”

Others are more playful, and include Voice tic-Tac-Toe, Freeze Dance and Musical Chairs. Google has also partnered with entertainment companies like Disney and Sports Illustrated to bring kids experience to its smart speakers, including a game called “Mickey Mouse Adventure.”

Finally, Google Home is going to become a much better story-teller. The speaker can now be asked to retell most classic fairy tales, including “Snow White,” “Cinderella” and “Goldilocks.”

Google first announced the addition of these family-friendly activities at its “Made by Google” event earlier this month. At the time, the company also said that it had worked on improving speech recognition for smaller children who may not always pronounce every word as clearly as their parents.

The company announced one more step to turn Google Home into a family devices Tuesday: Parents can now add accounts for their children, thanks to Google’s Family Link program. This makes it possible to personalize the device for them while also keeping tabs on their activities.

Google first launched its Google Home speaker as an answer to Amazon’s Echo last year, and announced the addition of a $50 Home Mini as well as a $400 Google Home Max this month.
