The Weekly Authority: 📱 Pixel Prototype

⚡ Welcome to The weekly authoritythe Android Authority newsletter that breaks down the top Android and tech news of the week. 197th edition here, with this Pixel 7 prototype, Galaxy foldable specs, Final Fantasy 16 updates, and some good news for coffee drinkers.

🎉This week marked the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations here in the UK (the first British monarch to celebrate 70 years of service!), so I took advantage of the two-day national holiday and we organized a street party here in town!

  • Vivo X80 Pro review: Vivo’s best, (mostly) refined – “It doesn’t reinvent the wheel, but it’s still a welcome upgrade over its already excellent predecessor.”
  • Samsung Galaxy A52s review: Jack of all trades – Premium build, great display, long-lasting battery life, and long-term software support make this easy to recommend.
  • Huawei Watch GT 3 Pro review: Titanium, ceramic and compromise – “A lot to offer but hampered by too many software flaws, missing features at launch and an extremely limited third-party app ecosystem, unless you plan to stick to a Huawei phone.”
  • Fossil Gen 5 Smartwatch review: An oldie but a goodie – The best Wear OS 2 watch you can buy.
  • Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra review: The power user’s best friend – “In addition to the best specs and feature-rich, widely supported software, the Galaxy S22 Ultra comes with the S Pen and a plethora of productivity tools unmatched by the competition.”

This week PlayStation’s latest State of Play gave us a lot to get excited about, including Final Fantasy 16 news:

If you missed it, you can catch up herebut otherwise keep reading for anything you missed:

  • Things started with a new Resident Evil 4 remake trailer, which we have been waiting for but still looking forward to. It arrives on March 24, 2023, in addition to being developed for PSVR2, and will arrive on PC and Xbox Series X/S.
  • PSVR2 news continued with a look at Resident Evil Village – to be honest, it scares me a bit, but kudos to anyone brave enough to play it! After the horror, there was another spooky title, The Walking Dead: Saints and Sinners Ch2, and we also got a glimpse of a VR version of No Man’s Sky.
  • But the PSVR2 trailer everyone wanted to see was a first look at Horizon Call of the Mountainwith amazing gameplay – plus news about a new patch for Horizon Forbidden West, which landed on Thursday.

Everything you need to know about PlayStation Plus

  • On to the news that excites me the most: we have a release date for Stray! It’s July 19! We have also another trailer which showed some gameplay. Oh, and it will be included in higher tiers of PlayStation Plus.
  • What else? Spider-Man is coming to PC on August 12, with Miles Morales to follow soon.
  • We’ve seen a survival horror trailer The Callisto Protocolgiving us some serious Dead Space vibes and coming December 2nd.
  • More rollerdromewas released on August 16: the roller derby sci-fi game looks pretty fun – and an anime action/dating sim eternal nights arrives in early 2023.
  • In case you missed it: Street Fighter 6 took a look, showing new character Jamie alongside Luke, Chun-Li and Ryu, coming in 2023, with Xbox Series X/S and PC versions also on the way.
  • Critically Acclaimed Tunic comes to PS4 and PS5 on September 27, and Season: A letter to the future looks intriguingly spellbinding, coming this fall.
  • But the biggest update, the one everyone was waiting for, was the Final Fantasy XVI news. We have a trailer, alongside a summer 2023 release window. I can’t. Wait.
