Insta360 Pro 2 fuses 360 8K video with 3D

Insta360 has launched its latest 360-degree camera, the Insta360 Pro 2. The new camera replaces last year's Insta360 Pro, and its specifications read like a wish-list for VR photographers.

You can check out some sample 3D footage below:The Pro 2 weighs 1.55kg including antenna and is designed for both monopod/tripod and drone use.

Google Pixel 3 XL seemingly photographed yet again

Using an unannounced phone on public transport is a sure-fire way to get it leaked, as evidenced here, because having already been photographed on a Toronto streetcar, a phone which appears to be the Pixel 3 XL has now been snapped on the Toronto subway. On a more positive note though this looks to really be an edge-to-edge screen at the sides, with basically no bezel at all on the left or right edge. We can also see the back of the phone, complete with a two-tone design like the Pixel 2 range a

2018 iPhones may come with faster wireless charging

Last year's iPhone range - the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus and iPhone X - all sported wireless charging for the first time in the company's phone-making history.

Apple's latest devices launched ready to support 5W chargers and a software update made the phones able to support 7.5W options. But Samsung's wireless charging compatible devices support 15W, which means
