New video shows legit-looking PlayStation phone in action

After Engadget released a less-than convincing video of the alleged PlayStation phone earlier this week, the site is following up with a much more thorough look. The Zeus (as it’s being called) appears to be running Android Gingerbread (no surprise there), and the hardware also features a PlayStation icon that is never pressed in the demo. The video also fails to provide a look at the device playing any games either, but the icon at least makes us assume it will run PlayStation games.

You do get a good peak at the home screen along with the phone’s nice, wide display, as well as an idea of how responsive the phone is (aside from a little lagging, it looks pretty quick).

Sony’s CEO recently alluded to the device’s introduction, which could be only a few months away.

Motorola can’t hold back, has four new phones to show everyone

Motorola has been busy and has four phones to show everyone, three of which are entirely new, and one we’ve seen before. However, they have all been announced for new territories, which confusingly alters depending on the model. Before you start counting out the money for one of these new Moto phones, none are coming to the U.S. or Canada.

With that clear, meet the Motorola Moto G8 Play, the Moto G8 Plus, the Moto E6 Play, and the Motorola One Macro.
Motorola G8 Plus
Motorola’s big main release is the G8 Plus, which has a triple-lens rear camera headed up by a 48-megapixel main lens, with Night Vision technology for a 4x boost in low-light performance. It’s joined by a wide-angle lens with a 117-degree field of view, and a 25-megapixel selfie camera. The 4,000mAh battery will return 40 hours of use, says Motorola, and is recharged using Motorola’s TurboPower feature. This gives eight hours use after 15 minutes of charging.
