T3 Hype is a weekly round-up of all the hottest tech news and releases.
Rather than doing oodles of separate stories on various announcements, we'll filter them to bring you only the stuff that matters most, updating every Friday for your reading pleasure.
This week we have an instant camera from Leica, the biggest phone release this year, and much more...
The most stylish launch this week comes from German camera brand Leica, with the introduction of its new instant camera, the Sofort. Yes, you read that correctly, Leica is making an instant camera.
The Sofort uses Fujifilm's Instax film, and costs a very reasonable (for Leica standards) £215. A colour pack of fill will cost £9.50 for 10 prints, or £15.50 for 20 prints. We think it looks awesome, and can’t wait to try it out.

The Ruark R4-30 is a limited edition of the excellent R4 music system, created to celebrate the company's 30th anniversary. This model’s casing has been subtly tweaked with ‘aero’ curves, and comes in a new satin titanium finish.
It’s still a multi-talented beast, packing a CD player, aptX enabled Bluetooth receiver, DAB/DAB+/FM tuners, USB playback port and auxiliary inputs.
It’ll cost you £679.99.
The Wingcase is a new take on a premium briefcase, with two unique vertical side pockets, giving you instant access to all of your precious technology. The case can also transform into an overnight bag, with enough capacity to hold enough clothes for a multi-night trip.
Handcrafted with genuine leather, we absolutely love the way it looks.
You’ll be able to pre-order it on Kickstarter from October 3. It’ll cost around £340. Sign up for updates on Wingcase's website.
Bentley Flying Spur W12 S
The newest model in Bentley’s Flying Spur range is also the fastest yet. It’s capable of reaching a claimed top speed of 202 mph, and 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds.
Beneath the bonnet is a massive 626 bhp 6.0-litre twin-turbo W12, and inside the cabin is all of the luxury and soft leather you’d expect from a Bentley.
The Flying Spur W12 S will land on driveways at the end of the year, with pricing yet to be announced.
Parrot’s Disco drone was certainly one of the more interesting things to be announced at CES earlier in the year. It’s now on sale in the UK.
The Disco is a fixed wing drone which flies like a plane, unlike more traditional quadcopters. There’s no need to be an experience pilot however, the drone packs a powerful autopilot mode.
You can also experience the first person view of flight thanks to the cool Parrot Cockpitglasses.
This is one of the most exciting drones to be released in years, and we can’t wait to try it out.
The full kit will set you back £1,149.99, that’s for the Parrot Disco, Skycontroller, and Cockpitglasses.
