Oppo Find X2 Neo leaks, looks very similar to the Reno3 Pro 5G

Earlier today we heard that the Oppo Reno3 Youth will be launched outside China under the name Oppo Find X2 Lite.
Now, the same source says the Reno3 Pro 5G will also go global, but this time the name will be Oppo Find X2 Neo.
The render of the Oppo Find X2 Neo looks like the Reno3 Pro 5G, including the wallpaper, so it could be a case of both being fake, or Oppo could really be bringing its Chinese Reno3 lineup as part of the Find X2 family outside its domestic market.
Specs-wise, the Reno3 Pro 5G is truly an intriguing phone – 48MP main camera, coupled with a 13MP telephoto shooter, an 8MP ultrawide-angle snapper, and a 2 MP B/W cam for good measure. The battery is 4,025 mAh with VOOC 4.0 30W fast-charging.
The Find X2 Neo, if real, will be looking to bridge the gap between the Find X2 Lite/Reno3 Youth and the X2 Pro dup.

Samsung Galaxy A51 5G official images surface

The Samsung Galaxy A51's 5G version is coming soon and we finally get to see a clear picture of it. Widely similar to the regula Galaxy A51, the 5G version has a different pattern on its back – similar to the A91 5G.
The image is courtesy of @evleaks, so we have good reason to trust its credibility.
Earlier today, we saw a certain SM-A516N pop-up on a South Korean support page, which was quickly cross-referenced to a certain GeekBench listing, which mentions an Exynos 980 chipset.
Now, thanks to the images, we can be just that extra bit more certain that this will likely be the only change in the A51 G5’s specs sheet, compared to the vanilla Galaxy A51 and its Exynos 9611 chipset.
Of course, things will definitely have to be laid-out at least a bit differently on the inside of the new version, since the antennas required for 5G connectivity are pretty big and complicated. Hopefully, everything fits back in without resorting to extra volume-saving measures, like, say, reducing ..

1 PS5 = over 1,600 PS2s and other wild comparisons

There's a lot we don't know about the PS5 yet. What does it look like? How much will it cost? When is it actually releasing? However, we do know a lot of its specs thanks to PlayStation lead architect Mark Cerny. The PlayStation 5 will boost a powerful solid-state drive (SSD), a custom 3.5GHz Zen 2 CPU, and a 10.28 teraflop custom RDNA 2 GPU.

To put that number into perspective, we took a look at the power levels of past PlayStations and how many teraflops they were packing. As you can imagine, the results ended up being comical when we compared the upcoming console to the PlayStation 2, which released 20 years ago. Time sure have changed, and technology as evolved and advanced a lot.

The PS2 GPU ran at a measly 6.2 gigaflops. For perspective, 1,000 gigaflops equals one teraflop. Crunching the numbers, we discovered that a staggering 1,658.06 PS2s equaled the power of one PS5 since 10.28 teraflops is 10,280 giga..
