Watch a Tesla Model 3 quickly swerve and avoid an accident at the last second

It's a shame that much of the narrative surrounding Tesla these days centers on the company's stock price, Elon Musk's shenanigans on Twitter, or other trivial details that don't truly capture some of the impressive automotive innovations Tesla has rolled out at a slow and steady pace over the years. Even today, a talking head on CNBC proclaimed that the 'Tesla dream' had come to an end and that the reality is that Tesla simply is unable to execute as promised. But if we move past the talking points, there's a lot of good news lurking beneath the surface. As a prime example, the number of Tesla vehicles on the road has exploded in recent years. To this point, Tesla deliveries from Q1 of 2018 to Q1 of 2019 jumped by an astounding 110%. In turn, we've seen a discernible uptick in videos depicting Tesla vehicles on Autopilot avoiding potentially tragic collisions. The latest example was posted to Reddit earlier today and depicts a Model 3 swerving out of harm's way after being rear-ended and almost careening into a car ahead: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVdTAwU07Jc "This morning I was rear ended coming to a stop by a lady driving about 40-50 mph," the uploader of the video notes. "The swerve in the video is not me. I don’t really remember in the moment but I think it was the Tesla that avoided the front collision. Saved me from bigger damage." Now is it possible that the driver instinctively swerved to the left to avoid the car ahead and simply doesn't remember? Of course. That said, there are rumblings on the Reddit thread that Tesla will take a look at the logs and see exactly what happened. Interestingly enough, this is the second Autopilot video we've seen make the rounds in just the last two weeks: https://twitter.com/RaghuKonka/status/1120209206995406848

One of the most impressive Android phones of 2019 just leaked

Most of the flagship phones set to launch in the first half of the year are already here, save for the OnePlus 7 that comes next week. That means we already have rumors about the flagship phones that we’ll see in stores in the second half of 2019. We’ve seen a bunch of iPhone 11, Pixel 4, and Galaxy Note 10 reports already, but now it's time to talk about a phone you won't find in stores out West. That’s because that phone has already leaked. Huawei just launched the P30, a phone with a camera system that has received plenty of attention as of late. But the company will not stop there, and has two more flagships it plans to launch this year. One of them is the foldable Mate X. The other is the Mate 30, which will be unveiled at some point this fall. Neither of them will be available from US carriers, however. We already have a rumor detailing the Mate 30’s design and main specs, courtesy of a Slashleaks contributor who posted the following message on Twitter a few days ago: https://twitter.com/RODENT950/status/1124260162372546565 When the Mate 20 launched last year, it delivered a few features that were not available on any other Android device, including a 7nm processor, 3D facial recognition support, triple-lens camera, and reverse wireless charging. If this report is accurate, the Mate 30 will have a 6.7-inch QuadHD+ OLED screen made by BOE, and an “all edge curved screen” similar to the Honor Magic. The Mate 20 Pro also came with a Galaxy S-like dual-edge screen design. The phone is also expected to feature a next-gen 7nm Kirin 985 SoC that will come with a built-in 5G modem. Finally, the Mate 30 will pack a triple-camera module on the back similar to the P30. It’ll be interesting to see whether the P30’s periscope lens will hit the Mate series this year as well.
