Awesome New Trailer Released for ‘Rush Rally Origins’ and an August Launch is Looking Likely

Late last week developer Brownmonster announced a new game called Rush Rally Origins, and as that title suggests it’s a game that takes the best-in-class rally racing of the Rush Rally series and revisits the original game’s top-down view in an effort to create “the definitive top-down racer” on mobile. Based on how incredible the previous entry Rush Rally 3 is, and based on my love of the top-down racing genre, I think Rush Rally Origins has a very good chance of accomplishing that goal. While that initial announcement was accompanied by some very lovely screenshots, I think I’m even more convinced now that I’ve seen Rush Rally Origins in motion thanks to this brand new trailer. Lookin’ real good! Rush Rally Origins will feature 36 new stages spread across the world, with the ability to change the time of day or weather in each of them. And of course, being a Rush Rally game, these stages will take place on multiple types of surfaces including dirt, gravel, sand, mud, pavement, or snow, and vehicles will handle differently depending on which surface you’re racing on. As expected you’ll be able to race against other competitors and download ghosts from the global leaderboards to race against, or you can compete against yourself trying to set the best time for a stage. There’s also a vehicle upgrading system and customizeable controls,...

Featured deal: Pick up a like-new Pixel 5 for just $429.99 Credit: Best Buy Even with the Google Pixel 5a potentially on the horizon, there hasn’t been a significant price drop on the Pixel 5 in a long time.

Get a close look at Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip 3 through a leaked video

Credit: Evan Blass / Twitter A leak has provided video of the Galaxy Z Flip 3. The footage shows Samsung’s foldable from most angles, including its larger external screen. Samsung is rumored to launch the phone sometime in August. You might not have to settle for static photos of the Galaxy Z Flip 3. Leaker Evan Blass has shared what appear to be official videos showing Samsung’s upcoming foldable from virtually every angle, both closed and open. https://cdn57.androidauthority.net/wp-content/uploads/2021/06/E5KAiTLX0AMg1JJ.mp4 The clips are short, but provide a good sense of how the Galaxy Z Flip 3 will improve on the original model (no, there’s no Z Flip 2). Most notably, they show off the larger, reportedly 19.-inch external display and two-tone back panel — you should have an easier time checking notifications or taking photos without popping the clamshell open. You only see a handful of the Z Flip 3 color range across the videos, including beige, black, gray, and light violet. Samsung is rumored to have dark blue, dark green, pink and white hues in development. See also: The best foldable phones If earlier leaks are accurate, the Galaxy Z Flip 3 would run on a Snapdragon 888 chip and carry a larger battery than its predecessors. There have been claims Samsung would introduce an under-display selfie camera, although that isn’t necessarily the case — the video clearly shows a...
