As the world continues to be consumed by Avengers: Endgame hype, Oppo has put out a special edition phone that ties into Marvel’s cinematic behemoth. Here’s our first look at the Oppo F11 Pro Marvel’s Avengers Limited Edition, to give it its full name.

The F11 Pro is a mid-range phone that Oppo first released in India a couple of months ago. Based on the historical relationship between Oppo’s F-series and sister company OnePlus’ flagship phones, as well as some extensive leaks, the OnePlus 7 is likely to look pretty similar to this device. OnePlus actually put out its own Avengers-themed phone last year around the release of Infinity War; now it’s Oppo’s turn for Endgame.

Oppo has gone much further than OnePlus in customizing this phone’s design. The back panel makes use of a shimmery blue gradient with a subtle hexagonal pattern and a cut-off red Avengers “A” logo, which is also featured above the camera module. The phone comes with a blue pleather case that has an embossed Endgame logo and an integrated grip ring/kickstand based on Captain America’s shield. There’s a collectible badge in the box, and the phone ships with custom Avengers wallpaper.

The Avengers-edition F11 Pro doesn’t have any technical differences to the regular model. It still has a Mediatek Helio P70 processor, a 48-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 16-megapixel pop-up selfie camera, a 4,000mAh battery, and a 6.53-inch 1080p LCD display with no notch. The fingerprint sensor is on the back of the phone, and the I/O is provided by a headphone jack and a Micro USB port with support for 20W VOOC fast charging. 

Oppo has released the Avengers-edition F11 Pro through Amazon in India, selling it for Rs. 27,990 ($400) with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage. That’s actually Rs. 1,000 cheaper than the MSRP of the 6GB/64GB F11 Pro, though prices have fallen further since its release. The bigger catch is that the phone appears to have sold out already, so you might have trouble tracking a new one down in the first place.

Table breaks before Apple Watch Ultra’s sapphire glass.

”It’s the most rugged and capable Apple Watch yet,” said Apple at the launch of the Apple Watch Ultra (read The Verge review here). YouTuber TechRax put that claim to the test with a series of drop, scratch, and hammer tests. Takeaways: the titanium case will scratch with enough abuse, and that flat sapphire front crystal is tough — tougher than the table which cracks before the Ultra fails — but not indestructible.

Rihanna’s headlining the Super Bowl Halftime Show.

Apple Music’s set to sponsor the Halftime Show next February, and it’s starting out strong with a performance from Rihanna. I honestly can’t remember which company sponsored the Halftime Show before Pepsi, so it’ll be nice to see how Apple handles the show for Super Bowl LVII.

Starlink is growing.

The Elon Musk-owned satellite internet service, which covers all seven continents including Antarctica, has now made over 1 million user terminals. Musk has big plans for the service, which he hopes to expand to cruise ships, planes, and even school buses.

Musk recently said he’ll sidestep sanctions to activate the service in Iran, where the government put restrictions on communications due to mass protests. He followed through on his promise to bring Starlink to Ukraine at the start of Russia’s invasion, so we’ll have to wait and see if he manages to bring the service to Iran as well.

We might not get another Apple event this year.

While Apple was initially expected to hold an event to launch its rumored M2-equipped Macs and iPads in October, Bloomberg’s Mark Gurman predicts Apple will announce its new devices in a series of press releases, website updates, and media briefings instead.

I know that it probably takes a lot of work to put these polished events together, but if Apple does pass on it this year, I will kind of miss vibing to the livestream’s music and seeing all the new products get presented.

California Governor Gavin Newsom vetoes the state’s “BitLicense” law.

The bill, called the Digital Financial Assets Law, would establish a regulatory framework for companies that transact with cryptocurrency in the state, similar to New York’s BitLicense system. In a statement, Newsom says it’s “premature to lock a licensing structure” and that implementing such a program is a “costly undertaking:”

A more flexible approach is needed to ensure regulatory oversight can keep up with rapidly evolving technology and use cases, and is tailored with the proper tools to address trends and mitigate consumer harm.

Get ready for some Netflix news.

At 1PM ET today Netflix is streaming its second annual Tudum event, where you can expect to hear news about and see trailers from its biggest franchises, including The Witcher and Bridgerton. I’ll be covering the event live alongside my colleague Charles Pulliam-Moore, and you can also watch along at the link below. There will be lots of expected names during the stream, but I have my fingers crossed for a new season of Hemlock Grove.
