OnePlus phones may be available from Verizon next year

OnePlus may be relatively new in the game compared to fellow Chinese manufacturers but it has one important advantage over the likes of Xiaomi or Vivo or even Huawei. It is available to US buyers and, as of last year, even from T-Mobile. That's just one US carrier among many, however, and its exclusivity with one carrier may be hurting OnePlus' chances at even bigger sales in the country. Fortunately, it seems that OnePlus is moving to indeed expand its reach starting with Verizon.

OnePlus 7T leaks paint a complete picture including one sad detail

With all the high-end phones coming out the past weeks, OnePlus will soon remind consumers that one doesn't necessarily need to spend so much on a premium mobile device. The OnePlus 7T may look like a small step up from the OnePlus 7 but that is to be expected given the company's strategy. But while some might be looking forward to upgrading to the late 2019 models, those in the US will have a bit hard thinking to do since one model won't be available to them.

OnePlus TV will also integrate with Amazon Alexa skills

OnePlus is launching its own smart TV, that much is already an established fact. What isn't yet completely known is what form it will take, both in terms of hardware and software. The company has talked a lot about how the OnePlus TV practically takes Android TV to the next level, focusing on its very close relationship with Google. What it hasn't been really talking about is how close it also is to Amazon to the extent that the smart TV is even getting its own set of Alexa skills.

OnePlus will stop aggressively killing apps in the background

OnePlus will stop aggressively killing apps in the background

When OnePlus began its claim to Never Settle, it included a more vanilla Android experience in its promise. Over the years, it built its own identity with the Oxygen OS, mixing a near-vanilla Android with its own custom features.

OnePlus TV remote looks very, very familiar

Some manufacturers and designers are only now trying to aim for minimalist designs but Apple has long been touting minimalism for ages.

Whether by design or by accident, the OnePlus TV's newly revealed remote will suffer the same fate and, from the looks of it, could also suffer from Apple's missteps plus some of its own.

Android 10 rollout: stable Essential, beta OnePlus, confusing Xiaomi

As leaked before, Google finally and formally released Android 10, previously known as Android Q, to the world. That, however, might not matter much to most Android users who will still have to wait for their phone makers to roll out the update to their phones, if at all. It does mean that the guessing and waiting game for users has started but, at least for three brands outside of Google's own Pixels, they might not have to wait that long.
