OnePlus 8 seen in the wild, hints at upcoming features

The OnePlus 7T has just launched last month to some amount of success but it seems that the company may actually be done with its next flagship. Unless OnePlus suddenly changes its schedule, it won't be another 6 or so months before the OnePlus 8 actually breaks cover but, unsurprisingly, leaks are already popping up. What is surprising, however, is that what could be the OnePlus 8 has already been spotted in the real world, providing clues on what it may have in store for 2020.

OnePlus 6 Android 10 update rolls out with a bug and a removed feature

OnePlus 6 Android 10 update rolls out with a bug and a removed feature

True to its promise, OnePlus is rolling out Android 10 updates to its supported smartphones. After a brief beta testing period, the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6 are finally getting the stable version of OxygenOS 10.0 with Android 10. That beta period may have been too short, however, as the update for the OnePlus 6 was immediately pulled out for a while due to a bug that should have been fixed before the official announcement was made.

OnePlus dual phone strategy is going to continue due to successful sales

OnePlus dual phone strategy is going to continue due to successful sales

If you thought that OnePlus' "Never Settle" motto also applies to its release strategy, think again. For the first 3 generations, it seemed that it defied the business practice of launching multiple phones a year. That changed with the OnePlus 5T and then again with the OnePlus 7 this year when the company launched two phones at the same time (and two more under the "T" series). If you have been confused by that strategy, better brace yourself because the company's CEO revealed it won't be changing course any time soon.

BBK Group may soon beat Apple and Samsung, but how?

BBK Group may soon beat Apple and Samsung, but how?

There's a company by the name BBK Group that you should get to know, if you don't know already. Where Apple made their mark in the smartphone world with a single brand, iPhone, BBK Group (aka BBK Electronics Corporation, or BBK) went completely the opposite direction, creating not only a wide variety of different smartphone models, but running a set of different smartphone companies that, to the average consumer, look like completely separate entities. If one combines the various brands owned by BBK into a single count, they ship more phones than any other single brand.

OnePlus 7T teardown reveals a small, sad fact about its design

T-Mobile just announced that the OnePlus 7T Pro McLaren Edition will be coming someday but most of the people in the US will have to make do with the OnePlus 7T. That mostly fine considering all the power and features that you get for its price, presuming you don't break that glass back on purpose or by accident. The latter might actually be more likely considering the new back design which, at least based on this teardown, may have been an unnecessary change.

OnePlus 7T Pro 5G coming to T-Mobile with highest-end edition (McLaren)

The MacLaren version of the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G is coming to the United States exclusively to T-Mobile USA. This is the first time OnePlus has suggested that they'll bring the "Pro" version of the phone to the USA, with all previous indications being that the phone would only be released in regions outside of North America.

OnePlus 6 and 6T Android 10 Beta goes live

OnePlus 6 and 6T Android 10 Beta goes live

With the buzz going on around the OnePlus 7T, it's not really surprising if owners of the company's previous models feel a bit left out. That has always been the complaint about manufacturers but OnePlus has always painted an image of its self as a rebel and a non-conformist. Hot on the heels of the OnePlus 7T's debut, OnePlus promised that even the OnePlus 5 will get its turn with Android 10 but, at least for now, it's the OnePlus 6 and 6T's turn first.

OnePlus 7T durability test will have your reaching for the included case

OnePlus 7T durability test will have your reaching for the included case

JerryRigEverything might soon have a problem when it comes to its durability tests for smartphones. Over the years, mobile devices have wised up to the usual problems in structural integrity and fewer phones today are as bendable as the iPhone 6 was. Of course, from time to time, some interesting phone lands on Zack Nelson's table that has the Web talking again. That's often the case with "unconventional" phones like the Galaxy Fold or even the OPPO Find X. Who would have thought, then, that the OnePlus 7T would actually have a different story to tell as well.

OnePlus 5 will also get Android 10 but not soon

OnePlus 5 will also get Android 10 but not soon

OnePlus started out as the rebel that refused to settle for the status quo. Initially, that applied to the combination of hardware and prices but the once small startup wants to make sure everyone knows that "Never Settle" also applies to the entire Android experience, including updates. It has worked to provide the latest Android version to its faithful fans, even to the slightly old models like the OnePlus 5 and OnePlus 5T. Unfortunately, owners of those phones will have to wait for their turn at Android 10.

OnePlus 7T Pro leak squeaked pre-7T release at live event

The OnePlus 7T Pro was shown today in a leak from several different angles. This device was not mentioned outright by OnePlus during their launch of the OnePlus 7T, but we've got enough clues at this point to say there's a fair certainty the company will show the very, very real device, very soon.
