OnePlus is the Apple of Android software updates

OnePlus is the Apple of Android software updates

Remember back in early 2016 when the OnePlus 3 was first released? Those were heady days - the world was different back then. Now we're nearly 3 years into the future, and a phone that launched with Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow is still getting updates. It got an update from Marshmallow to Nougat, then to Oreo, now it's about to get an update to Pie. Updates for three years - isn't that supposed to be a feature reserved for the elite kings of mobile, Apple, for the iPhone alone?

OnePlus 7 leaks: Motorized selfie camera? Bad idea

OnePlus 7 leaks: Motorized selfie camera? Bad idea

One Plus phones aren’t flashy. They don’t turn heads or second glances. Instead, it’s a special connection between machine and man, rewarded with the basics of flagship phones done so brilliantly, and at a price lower than anyone else. Simple as that. The "flagship killers" may now be breaking its tried and tested philosophy. Leaks of the upcoming One Plus 7 hint at the brand adopting a flashier and unconventional motorized selfie camera, in a bid to stretch the front screen from corner to corner.

OnePlus 7 leak promoted by online retailer

OnePlus 7 leak promoted by online retailer

This afternoon the OnePlus 7 was leaked in full by a retailer online - or so it would seem. This retailer has done the same thing in the past - apparently leaking devices well in advance of actual launch. What separates this situation from the rest is the subject matter - and the fact that it's reflecting some of the analysis we've done in the recent past.

How OPPO F11 Pro kinda sorta leaked OnePlus 7

How OPPO F11 Pro kinda sorta leaked OnePlus 7

A herald is a sign of something to come - in this case, OPPO F11 Pro is a sign that it's almost time for the launch of OnePlus 7. Details of the last several OPPO F "Pro" devices turned out to be early guidelines inside which OnePlus's phones seemed to be delivered. Be it happenstance, coincidence, or some third reason, the OPPO F Pro line launches of past years seemed to usher in the OnePlus phones that've been released not long after. Today we're looking at the OPPO F11 Pro from that perspective.

OnePlus 7 specs leak update: 3x Camera, TOF sensor, 6.5-inch Display

OnePlus 7 specs leak update: 3x Camera, TOF sensor, 6.5-inch Display

Our early OnePlus 7 leaked set of specifications had a couple of tweaks done to it this weekend, and now we're a lot closer to the truth. Due in a big way to the nearly always accurate OnLeaks and his latest batch of renders, we can confirm - or at least feel a lot more confident about - some of the specifications we reported earlier this year. One relatively small change has to do with the location of the pop-up camera - it's not so much on the right, like the Vivo V15 Pro, but on the left - and still off-center.

OnePlus 7 renders show popup front camera, triple rear cameras

Wishful thinking or false lead? That might be the decision some will have to make regarding this latest leak dump about the still unannounced OnePlus 7. While OnLeaks definitely has a track record for getting some things right, there might be other things fans wish never came to pass. A fresh new batch of renders based on such info are revealing what the OnePlus 7 could look like and it might not suit everyone's tastes.

OnePlus 7 wireless charging still won’t be happening

OnePlus 7 wireless charging still won’t be happening

Perhaps there is a reason why OnePlus no longer uses its "Never Settle" slogan that much if at all. It has proven, for better or worse, that it will actually settle for something less, usually for price or practical considerations. For some time, it refused to add an NFC chip in its smartphones. It also backtracked on its own boasts and eventually booted the headphone jack out of the OnePlus 6T. In a similar vein, it seems unwilling to budge on the topic of wireless charging, hinting that it won't be on the upcoming OnePlus 7.

OnePlus 7 specs leaked: 48MP, 5G in effect

OnePlus 7 specs leaked: 48MP, 5G in effect

Today we're looking at a set of specifications for the OnePlus 7, having a peek at how it takes the line to a new level. The OnePlus 7 looks like it'll reach for the logical conclusion in smartphone frontside evolution - one big display, no distractions. The specs sheet we've got today suggests the OnePlus 7 will tote a sizable display at 6.5-inches, with no front-facing camera - not immediately visible, anyway - and another under-display fingerprint sensor.

OnePlus 7 leaked with no bezels, no front camera

OnePlus 7 leaked with no bezels, no front camera

The Galaxy S10 will probably kick off a new generation of phones with "hole-in" displays, in no small part to both Samsung and Huawei trying to outdo each other. Not all manufacturers, however, may be following suit and some will probably stay with the readily available notched panels. OnePlus might be trying to set itself apart again by adopting an unconventional solution. At least based on some sketchy leaks, the OnePlus 7's bezel-less face might might be thanks to an elevating camera.

Why big teams like Apple develop and little ones like OnePlus disrupt

Why big teams like Apple develop and little ones like OnePlus disrupt

A study published this week on the size of teams in science and technology showed how one disrupts while the other tends to develop. I'm using Apple and OnePlus to extrapolate because Apple was, for a while, a disruptor. Now they're not exactly the same company they were a decade ago - they still disrupt the industry, sometimes, but they're far more apt to develop what's already successful. OnePlus, on the other hand, is in a place where they've disrupted the market, recently, and several times over.

OnePlus 7 and the 5G ‘gaming phone’

OnePlus 7 and the 5G ‘gaming phone’

Let's talk about the revelations that've come down over the last couple days with regard to the OnePlus 5G. This device is commented upon by OnePlus in their official Mobile World Congress 2019 preview materials as "a OnePlus 5G prototype." They've suggested that this device will be on-site - but we have reason to believe that it won't be a device meant for the public.
