Digital Trends Live: Nest Hub Max review, Pixel 4 leak, iPhone 11 preview

On this episode of Digital Trends Live, host Greg Nibler welcomes DT Content Manager Hanif Jackson to discuss today’s trending tech topics, including a Google Nest Hub Max review, a Pixel 4 leak, Bugatti’s new limited-edition Chiron, a dubious record for EA on Reddit, and much more.

Steven Morris, chief executive officer of BIOLIFE4D, joins the program to discuss the company’s 3D-printed mini-heart and the medical impact of 3D printing. Editor’s Note: the text during the segment reads “fully functioning” but the 3D printed heart is a mini-heart and not a fully functioning human heart.

We then talk expectations for the Apple iPhone 11 with Contributing Editor Andy Boxall, who joins us to talk about the iPhone, as well as other products to be announced at the Apple event.

Finally, we welcome Meenaz Sunderji, senior vice president at Zafin, to talk about the algorithm behind your car payment, and how consumers should be thinking about their financial profile.

iPhone 12S to get 120Hz screen and more power, but no Mini model, report says
iPhone 12 range

Apple is set to unveil the tentatively titled iPhone 12S series this year, but a new analyst note from TrendForce indicates that the iPhone 12S Mini will be sitting this one out. Instead, it expects Apple to focus on a series of refinements to the larger iPhones, adding everything from a smaller notch to new A15 Bionic processors and 120Hz refresh rate displays.

Let's address the elephant in the room first. Apple is said to be naming this an iPhone 12S rather than an iPhone 13, despite zipping from the iPhone 11 to the iPhone 12, though the name is not set in stone. CNET believes Apple could skip the iPhone 13 branding entirely and jump to the iPhone 14 in 2022 for cultural reasons, as the number is often associated with bad luck.

Canadian Angie Carriere recently decided to celebrate her 50th birthday with a spot of ice fishing in Waskesiu Lake, some 280 miles east of Edmonton.

Size comparison: iPhone 12 vs. iPhone 12 Mini vs. iPhone 12 Pro Max
iPhone 12 models

Apple's iPhone 12 lineup is particularly compelling because it addresses a wider range of people's needs than prior generations. It has four phones in three distinct size categories, and those size differences aren't superfluous — they're very tangible jumps from the iPhone 12 Mini, to the 12 and 12 Pro, and then up to the 12 Pro Max.

And unlike previous small and large models, which were oddly compromised or built on an old or lower-quality platform, there's a surprising amount of consistency to the iPhone 12 lineup. You're getting the same base design, specs, and features from the little iPhone 12 Mini up to the giant iPhone 12 Pro Max. So now, you can just pick the iPhone size you desire, and not feel like you're giving up fundamental parts of the experience.
