OnePlus 7 leaks tips radical departure

OnePlus 7 leaks tips radical departure

The first major leaks of the OnePlus 7 were revealed over the weekend, and the first full picture we've got suggests the company's making their biggest changes yet. This newest OnePlus smartphone looks like it'll be significantly different from devices in the past. Not just because it looks different from its predecessor, but because it might well become unique unto itself. That'd be different from previous years in which OnePlus followed along with related company OPPO's leads.

OPPO, OnePlus phones might finally get wireless charging support

OPPO, OnePlus phones might finally get wireless charging support

Wireless charging has become more known and more common thanks in part to Apple’s support for the technology in recent iPhones. It has also become easier for manufacturers to include due to the trend of using glass backs instead of metal. But despite that, at least two popular OEMs have refused to jump on the bandwagon, namely OPPO and distant cousin OnePlus. That may soon be changing now that OPPO has joined the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC), the organization that develops the widely-used Qi wireless charging standard.

OnePlus 7 leak teases notch-less, sliding camera design [UPDATE]

OnePlus 7 leak teases notch-less, sliding camera design [UPDATE]

The last year has seen Android manufacturer OnePlus rapidly advancing its phone designs. From the me-too notch on the OnePlus 6, the company then introduced the OnePlus 6T (above) with its tiny teardrop camera notch, a design that's already being adopted by other smartphones. Now, with 6T having been out for just over two months, it seems it's already time for details on its successor, the presumed OnePlus 7, to start leaking.

OnePlus 5/5T get their full serving of Android 9 Pie

OnePlus 5/5T get their full serving of Android 9 Pie

It seems that some manufacturers have a new idea of how to give their loyal fans a gift during the holidays. Not all are probably in a mood to buy new phones but everyone is probably going to benefit from a new update. Just in time for Christmas (or late, depending on where you live), OnePlus has just rolled out the final version of Oxygen OS 9.0 for the OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T, giving owners of last year’s flagship the full taste of Android 9 Pie.

OnePlus 6T almost makes it to DxOMark’s Top 10

OnePlus 6T almost makes it to DxOMark’s Top 10

OnePlus always tries to hype its cameras, just like any other smartphone maker these days. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always live up to that hype. It has gotten better for sure, but still fails to get that last mile to make it to the big boys. Considering how similar it is to its predecessor in terms of camera hardware, it shouldn’t be surprising that the OnePlus 6T doesn’t climb too high on DxOMark’s ladder. The improvements, however, prove how even little software tweaks could change the game.

Spotted: OnePlus 7 prototype (or something even better)

It's time to start taking a peek at the OnePlus 7 - a device that's been leaked in a strange form today. The image we're looking at here shows a OnePlus smartphone from several angles, in a form we've never seen before. We see someone who VERY much looks like OnePlus CEO Carl Pei making a presentation two at least three colleagues. We also see some less-than-obvious details, too.

OnePlus 5/5T Android 9.0 Pie beta has finally arrived

OnePlus 5/5T Android 9.0 Pie beta has finally arrived

All the attention lavished on the OnePlus 6T and, to some extent, the OnePlus 6 might naturally cause a few owners of OnePlus’ 2017 flagships to feel a bit hurt. Neither side can be blamed but OnePlus did promise that the OnePlus 5 and the OnePlus 5T would still get their delicious pie. The good news is that the company hasn’t forgotten that promise. The bad news is that owners will have to settle, at least for now, for a beta of Android 9 Pie. That is if they’re willing to take the risk.

OnePlus isn’t betting big on 5G yet, dreams of smaller phone

OnePlus isn’t betting big on 5G yet, dreams of smaller phone

Almost any and all companies involved with phones and the Internet are rallying behind a single, two-letter word: "5G". From chipmakers like Qualcomm to service providers like T-Mobile to phone manufacturers like Samsung, the big players are lining up their big guns on the 5G wall. One company, however, sounds almost unconvinced. Despite portraying itself as a rebel who never settles for anything less, OnePlus isn’t in a rush to put out a 5G-capable phone. Oh it’s coming alright, in about five months or so. It won’t, however, be making the company much money.

Moment case for OnePlus 6 brings lenses that expand its world

Moment case for OnePlus 6 brings lenses that expand its world

Smartphone cameras have become quite capable and formidable but even those with the most innovative features, like Samsung’s dual aperture lens or Google’s AI-backed single camera, are pretty much limited by the lenses manufacturers bolt on to them permanently. There’s really no way around that unless phones become like interchangeable lens cameras. Fortunately, there are companies like Moment that do offer something equivalent and fortunately for OnePlus 6 owners, the company has finally taken notice of them.

Just as we all expected, the first product to come out of this recently-announced partnership between McLaren and OnePlus is a phone. More specifically, OnePlus today announced the OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition, which ships with a few interesting improvements over the standard 6T. The first, and arguably most important, is an increase in RAM.

OnePlus 6T fingerprint sensor unlocks faster over time

OnePlus 6T fingerprint sensor unlocks faster over time

In-screen fingerprint scanners or fingerprint-on-display (FoDs) have started to become more common in phones, at least from Chinese brands. While they are partly impressive in how they enable such biometrics beneath the glass, they’re still regarded to be slower and less accurate than conventional fingerprint scanners. OnePlus has finally jumped on that train but, never willing to settle, it claims to have come up with the fastest and smartest FoD in the market. So smart that it can actually study your fingerprint over time.

OnePlus 6T McLaren will warp where few phones have gone before

OnePlus 6T McLaren will warp where few phones have gone before

The OnePlus 6 series, both the original and the OnePlus 6T, have always been about speed. Or at least that’s what OnePlus has been focusing its marketing on. It’s no longer a secret that it will be extensively using that theme to market a special McLaren F1 Edition. But more than just a name and a color change, it seems that this particular version of the OnePlus 6T will also get a speed boost when it comes to charging.
