The first half of 2022 saw a whole load of new tech releases, including the iPhone SE 3, iPad Air 5, Huawei P50 Pro, Google Pixel 6a, Samsung Galaxy Tab S8 and the MacBook Air with M2 chip. It’s now time to turn our attention to the upcoming devices rumoured to launch later this year! Numerous tech rumours have been circling about new mobile phones and it looks like Samsung will have some serious competition in the foldable market. Google could be launching their first ever foldable phone and Motorola has a new launch up its sleeve! Alongside Apple Watch 8 rumours, we’re looking forward to the new iPad Pro and we’ve got even more details flooding in about the highly anticipated iPhone 14. Here are some of the rumoured products in the pipeline, including potential prices, names and new features!
At the beginning of 2022, there were a lot of rumoured mobile phones set to take technology to the next level. Although some have already launched, there are still many devices we can’t wait to make an appearance from major manufacturers such as Apple, Samsung, Google and Motorola.
Here are just some of the exciting devices that have been mentioned in the latest phone rumours!
News has broken that the Motorola Razr is back with a new and improved model! Rumoured to be the Razr 3, the launch date has been unveiled as the 2nd August 2022.
According to the latest phone rumours, the new Motorola Razr will have a foldable display and an updated square design with no chin.
We can also expect a 50MP main camera, Snapdragon Gen 1 processor, plus 128GB and 256GB storage options.
Google Pixel Fold
Rumours surrounding the Google Pixel Fold have been doing the rounds for years, with suggestions that it will launch in late 2022 or early 2023, while other tech rumours sources believe it’s been cancelled.
However, the latest rumours suggest there will be a Google Pixel Fold but there isn’t solid information to suggest a launch date. In terms of price point, recent rumours expect it to be expensive with prices likely to start over £1,000.
For display and design, Google has apparently purchased a foldable 7.6-inch OLED display from Samsung, but there isn’t much evidence to back this up.
Overall, there isn’t any confirmed information for the features and a lot of the details are speculation. For now, we’re keeping an eye out for any concrete information that suggests this phone is in the pipeline for a launch in 2022.
Google Pixel 7
Rumoured to be one of the most exciting phones of 2022, we’re expecting to see a launch around October. Previous models (except the Google Pixel 5) have launched in October, so it’s likely it will be then.
Recent tech rumours suggest the price point will be roughly based on the Pixel 6, which starts at £599 and the Pro model starts at £849.
In terms of design, it’s rumoured to be similar to the Pixel 6. According to Google, the bar is one continuous piece which includes the frame of the phone and is made out of recycled aluminium.
It’s also likely the new model will be more powerful, with help of the next version of Google’s Tensor chipset. We can also expect it to come with Android 13.
Everything else concerning the Google Pixel 7 hasn’t yet been confirmed. According to recent rumours, the screen sizes may be similar to the Pixel 6 range. There also could be a storage choice of 128GB, 256GB and 512GB.
On that note, we can’t wait to finally see what Google has prepared for the new model!

New Apple iPhone rumours are in full swing for the iPhone 14 series!
In terms of the name, there are a few different suggestions according to new iPhone rumours. As the 2021 release is named the iPhone 13, it’s more likely the next release will be the iPhone 14. With that said, Apple could abandon using numbers and base the name on size, such as Pro or non-Pro. We’ll have to wait until the launch, as Apple likes to keep very secretive.
iPhone rumours expect there to be four devices launched in the iPhone 14 series. With the introduction of the Max, we’re expecting to see the following models:
iPhone 14 (standard model)
iPhone 14 Max (standard model with a bigger screen)
iPhone 14 Pro (a more powerful version of the standard model)
iPhone 14 Pro Max (same features as the iPhone 14 Pro with a bigger screen
In terms of features, the iPhone Mini is set to be scrapped and Apple will focus on larger screens instead. According to new iPhone rumours, 2022 models may have a notch-less design, with Face ID under the display. However, it’s rumoured the notch will stay on the standard iPhone 14 but the Pro models will likely feature two camera cutouts instead.
The iPhone 14 could potentially have a similar design to the iPhone 13 but with updates to body design. Apple may use titanium to construct the iPhone rather than steel or aluminium.
Improvements to power and efficiency are expected, due to the rumoured A16 chip, and the entire

The Apple Watch Series 8 is expected to launch alongside the new iPhone, with key dates circulating around the 6th or 13th of September.
Apple Watch rumours expect the price to be similar to the Series 7 which starts at £369, although the price may increase depending on size and watch strap.
Plus, the new Apple Watch Series 8 is rumoured to have even bigger design changes compared to the Series 7, such as flat edges and a completely flat display. It’s also been suggested Apple will introduce a larger design but we don’t know how big this will be.
According to recent Apple Watch rumours, the Series 8 will have improved impact resistance which is handy if you love extreme sports (or are just clumsy).
Plus, the S8 chip is also rumoured to get speed and efficiency improvements. We’ve also heard there will be more new watch faces to choose from as well.

Samsung has recently confirmed that their Unpacked event will be on the 10th of August, which means we’re expecting the launch of the new Samsung Galaxy Watch 5.
If we look back at previous years, Samsung normally releases the new version of the Watch in August so it’s very likely! Plus, the Galaxy Watch 5 has appeared in the Samsung Wearable app, which is a sign the new model is coming soon.
We’re not too sure about pricing right now, but to give us a slight indication, here are the price points from last year's Samsung Galaxy Watch 4, including Bluetooth only and 4G models:
Tech rumours have suggested the Galaxy Watch 5 may get a battery boost and recent rumours about the Pro version explain the battery size could go up to 572mAh. The battery speed has also been rumoured to increase.
Recent rumours have suggested Samsung will ditch the Classic design and that we could expect three models in the Galaxy Watch 5 range.
Overall, even though it’s looking like the Samsung Galaxy Watch 5 will launch very soon, we haven’t got many details. We’ll just have to wait and see what Samsung has in store for the next generation Galaxy Watch.
The latest iPad Pro rumours suggest the new model will launch in September, however, there is a possibility it could be even later.
There’s been no mention of prices, but we do know that Apple doesn’t drastically change pricing between models. With that said, upgrade features are more likely to cost more, such as storage and 5G connectivity.
Unfortunately, it’s very unlikely we will see the 11-inch iPad Pro (2022) with a Mini-LED display this year due to supply and cost issues.
In terms of wireless charging, it looks as though the new iPad models will support MagSafe wireless charging and there’s even been a mention of reverse wireless charging capabilities for the next generation iPad Pro. This would mean the device would be able to charge other Apple devices - how exciting!
Plus, other iPad rumours explain Apple has been working on a larger battery due to past complaints about the Magic Keyboard causing severe battery drain.
It also is very likely the iPad Pro 2022 will use the M2 chip after all! Apple has recently introduced the chip to the MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, it’s now expected the new iPad Pro models will get the same chip.
