Multiple cars in the NASCAR Cup Series will drop to the rear before the start of Sunday’s Pocono 350 (4 p.m. ET on FS1, MRN, SiriusXM NASCAR Radio).

Because Sunday’s race is the second in a weekend doubleheader, teams are supposed to use the same car from the first race. Five teams, though, have been approved to go to a backup car and therefore will have to fall back before the green flag: the No. 00 StarCom Racing Chevrolet of Quinn Houff (supposed to start 40th), the No. 8 Richard Childress Racing Chevrolet of Tyler Reddick (supposed to start 30th), the No. 20 Joe Gibbs Racing Toyota of Erik Jones (supposed to start 38th), the No. 22 Team Penske Ford of Joey Logano (supposed to start 36th) and the No. 88 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet of Alex Bowman (supposed to start 27th).

Also, four other drivers will lose their starting spot for different reasons. Chase Elliott’s No. 9 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet and B.J. McLeod’s No. 78 B.J. McLeod Motorsports Chevrolet had their transmissions changed. Elliott and McLeod were set to fire off 25th and 39th, respectively. Then, William Byron’s No. 24 Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet and Ryan Preece’s No. 37 JTG Daugherty Racing Chevrolet had their engines changed. Byron was going to start seventh, while Preece originally had the pole position.

Sunday’s lineup was based on the finishing results from Saturday, which included an inversion of the top 20 finishers.

Multiple Leaks Suggest No New Hardware at WWDC – MacRumors

Apple has scrapped plans to reveal any new hardware at WWDC tomorrow, according to leakers Jon Prosser and Max Weinbach who shared the information on Twitter.

While WWDC is usually a software-driven event, until now leaks had strongly suggested the announcement of new hardware, particularly a redesigned iMac with iPad Pro design language. Other rumored hardware announcements were AirTags, AirPods Studio, and a refreshed Apple TV.

WWDC events sometimes have no new hardware reveals, as was the case in 2018. Last year, Apple used WWDC to offer a preview of the new Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR. It is possible that Apple has faced supply chain issues this year, and may have decided to postpone hardware announcements until its manufacturing situation improves. It may also be the case that Apple simply did not have any hardware announcements planned for WWDC.

Looking like any possible hardware has been scrapped for WWDC tomorrow 🤔
Might be wrong about this one. Would love to be wrong!
I’ll be surprised with all of you, either way!
Jon Prosser (@jon_prosser) June 21, 2020

I had two sources tell me no hardware for WWDC tomorrow. They aren’t on WWDC related teams but heard it through the Apple grapevine. I’d take this with a grain of salt, but thought it was worth mentioning.
— Max Weinbach (@MaxWinebach) June 21, 2020

Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman has also said he does not expect any hardware announcements at WWDC. Prosser and Weinbach are serial leakers, and both caution in their tweets that the information is somewhat uncertain.

Apple will livestream the WWDC keynote and we will be covering the event on and through our MacRumorsLive Twitter account.

Multiple Samsung Galaxy Note 20 details revealed by industry insider – Android Authority

samsung galaxy note 1src plus star wars edition apps theme 4

We’ve been hearing a lot about the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Note 20 series of late. Most of the latest rumors have come from CEO of Display Chain Consultants, Ross Young who’s been busy tweeting insider information about the upcoming flagship series.

Now, in an exclusive interview with YouTube channel Greggles TV, Young has outed more details about the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Plus. He talks about everything from RAM to in-display fingerprint tech, battery size, and more in the 10-minute-long Q&A session. Let’s break down that new information for you.

New fingerprint sensing tech

To start with, Young says that both the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Plus may be the first to feature Qualcomm’s second-gen 3D Sonic Max fingerprint reader. The large ultrasonic fingerprint sensor was introduced back in December and can read two fingerprints at the same time.

The sensor’s predecessor didn’t work so well on the Galaxy S10 and Note 10 phones. However, the new sensor is 17 times larger than the last one and promises faster unlocking speeds. With its ability to recognize two fingerprints at the same time, the sensor could also help enhance security on the phones.

Punch-hole position remains unchanged

Young goes on to say that the Galaxy Note 20 and Note 20 Plus will have the same selfie camera position as the Note 10 series. This means that the punch hole on the display will remain in the center of the screen, as was also the case on the Galaxy S20 series.

Thanks to Young’s previous leaks, we can expect a 6.42-inch display on the Galaxy Note 20 and a 6.87-inch screen on the Note 20 Plus.

Other specs

Just like the current Galaxy S20 flagships, the Galaxy Note 20 series will also top out at 16GB RAM, as per Young. He expects the two phones to have large batteries ranging between 4,000mAh and 5,000mAh. Those are pretty much the same battery sizes as the Galaxy S20 phones. However, they’re on the higher side compared to the Note 10 series which topped out at a 4,300mAh battery (and 3,500mAh for the vanilla Note 10)

He also says that the larger Note 20 Plus will have a bigger battery compared to the regular Note 20, but that’s also pretty much what we expected from Samsung.

Expected release date

Samsung usually launches the Galaxy Note series in August and Young expects that to remain unchanged. According to him, the phones will release alongside the Galaxy Fold 2 in early August and will go on sale later that month, or early September.

So that sums up pretty much everything Young revealed about the upcoming Note 20 series in the interview. You can read all about previous Note 20 rumors at the previous link.
