ProClip Roundup Recap: Season 2 Episode 7

Welcome back to another week of the ProClip Roundup! It’s the weekly news show where we cover the car and tech news that’s actually worth talking about. Here’s a recap of this week’s episode.

Ford is Working on a Tiny Pickup Truck

The popular automaker continues to work on new innovations. After moving forward with the plan to eliminate sedans in favor of a lineup heavy on trucks and SUVs, the Detroit-based company is working on a new unibody truck based on the Ford Focus. Sources close to the project have compared it to the Brazilian-made Ford Courier, but it is unknown at this time if it will be sold in the United States.

Leaks About the Google Pixel 3 XL

More leaks have come out about Google’s next smartphone, the Pixel 3 XL. The leaks backup what previous rumors had suggested, with a deep notch, a bottom front-facing speaker, and an all-glass back. Google is expected to officially unveil their new phones sometime around October 4th.

Tesla Makes Deliveries Straight from the Factory

Tesla has started rolling out a new method of deliveries after their previous delivery system was causing bottlenecks and delays. The automaker began testing a direct factory-to-consumer delivery model, which was kicked-off by CEO Elon Musk, who hand-delivered a Model 3 to a customer in Los Angeles. The system could prove to be more efficient but could still cause delays if the timing isn’t perfect.

Huawei Outsells Apple Worldwide

The world has a new #2 in cell phone sales! The Chinese smartphone manufacturer, Hawuei has surpassed Apple in Q2 sales. Their new flagship phones, the P20 and P20 Pro helped boost sales to 54 million units, compared to Apple selling 41 million units. The strong quarter from Huawei makes passing Samsung for the top-selling smartphone manufacturer a definite possibility in the future.
