Amazon may have given hundreds of Chinese brands the boot from its storefront, but many of them have found ways to sneak back with a little name change (or sometimes not even that). A new programmable, wireless 2.7 inch IoT display is coming soon to crowdfunding site Crowd Supply. And new phones from Xiaomi and HMD (Nokia) have leaked.
Here’s a roundup of recent tech news from around the web.
Amazon says it removed around 600 Chinese merchants representing 3,000 brands due to review fraud. But if you look hard enough (not very hard), you can still find their products at Amazon.
Coming soon to Crowd Supply (a crowdfunding site often used for open hardware projects), the Newt features a 2.7 inch display with Sharp memory-in-pixel technology and an ESP32-S2 microcontroller that can be programmed with Arduino, CircuitPython, or ESP-IDF.
Nokia G300 5G specs and images leaked ahead of launch, pointing to a budget phone with Snapdragon 480 processor, triple cameras, a 4,470 mAh battery, a 1600 x 720p display, and 64GB of storage.
