The technology rumor mill just keeps on churning as we get closer to the launch dates of various gadgets and gizmos. To keep you posted with the latest in smartphones and laptops, here's a recap of the biggest tech headlines and trends this week.
1) PlayStation 3 production ends in Japan
The PS3 is officially going into retirement, following a decade of entertaining gamers with classic triple A and casual games. This, after Sony Japan decided to pull the plug on its production after selling 83.8 million units since its 2006 launch.
2) Refurbished Samsung Galaxy Note 7 to be sold in June
Despite last year's "explosive" debacle, the tech giant is looking to release refurbished versions of their ill-fated smartphone.
Repackaged units of the Note 7, called the "Note FE," will have a battery capacity of 3,200 mAh instead of the initial 3,500 mAh. Aside from retaining the model's introductory look, there will also be a sweet price cut—estimated to save you around 30 percent from the original.
3) Samsung Note 8 dummy gets leaked
Leaked footage of what seems to be the upcoming Galaxy Note 8 revealed a massive 6.3-inch bezel-less screen that sees the unit treading phablet territory.
Are you going to cop or drop the Note 8? Or would you rather go for the Note FE?
4) Real-life Iron Man breaks his speed record
British inventor Richard Browning is living out his superhero dreams after creating his own jet-powered suit inspired by the Marvel icon.
The 38-year-old recently eclipsed his top mark while hovering in the prototype. Quite impressive for someone who started this whole thing as a hobby.
5) ASUS unveils laptops at Computex 2017
Good news for those who are planning on getting a new laptop!
The company introduced not one, not two, but five different models that you can choose from during the annual computer expo held in Taipei this week.
