OnePlus foldable phone isn’t going to happen anytime soon

OnePlus foldable phone isn’t going to happen anytime soon

OnePlus' much-publicized philosophy is to never give its customers a subpar or expensive experience exchange for new, fancy features that won't benefit anyone. The company has stuck to that except when it doesn't, like when it did remove the headphone jack just in time for it to launch its own wireless earbuds. It still hasn't yielded ground to wireless charging, at least not yet, and it seems that the latest trend it is saying no to is foldable phones.

5G OnePlus 8 with 120Hz display: Four reasons we’re excited – and one we’re not

The OnePlus 8 is rumored to have a 120Hz display as well as access to 5G connectivity - are the positives enough to outweigh the potential negative? The display on the OnePlus 8 Pro was tipped to roll with a 240Hz touch refresh rate, too. Why would anyone not want a display such as this? Let's take a peek at what's possible.

OnePlus 8 to feature 120 Hz 2K screen

OnePlus 8 to feature 120 Hz 2K screen

It feels almost like yesterday when OnePlus burst into the smartphone scene with a "Never Settle" slogan and a flagship that nearly matched the big boys of the market at only half the price tag. Since then, the upstart startup has positioned itself as an innovator, something it tried to do again at CES 2020 last week. Not content with its disappearing camera trick, the company has now revealed yet another technology milestone for the company, one that could at least see an actual implementation in the upcoming OnePlus 8.

OnePlus Optimized Charging will slow down charging to save your battery

OnePlus Optimized Charging will slow down charging to save your battery

Almost all smartphones these days now have some form of fast charging tech or another but despite the amazing advances in that area, the painful truth is that batteries themselves have remained the same for the past years. Fast charging technologies may only take minutes to fully charge to full but usually at the expense of battery health. That's why OnePlus has developed what is practically the reverse of its DASH Charge that slows charging down when you leave the phone plugged in overnight.

Now I understand why the OnePlus Concept One exists

Now I understand why the OnePlus Concept One exists

The OnePlus Concept One hides its magic well. Indeed, you'd be hard-pressed at first glance to spot that the technology OnePlus developed for its new concept smartphone at CES 2020 started development eighteen months ago, the Android phone-maker once again taking McLaren's supercars as its inspiration. Only this time around, it's not just a fancy color scheme.

OnePlus Concept One revealed with color-shifting glass

OnePlus Concept One revealed with color-shifting glass

Today a new OnePlus Concept One was revealed at CES 2020. This device is essentially a modified OnePlus 7T Pro (effectively) with a leather back* and some electrochromatic glass over its camera lenses. This is a system that'll at least change the way we see how the back-facing cameras on a smartphone are handled - if not the way we expect smartphone glass to be used entirely.

Lots of tech companies will be showing up to CES with their latest and greatest on-hand, but OnePlus is bringing something special: a concept phone with a disappearing camera.

OnePlus 6 and 6T update to Android 10 today

OnePlus 6 and 6T update to Android 10 today

Downloading the OnePlus 6T and OnePlus 6 update to Android 10 today won't be as risky as it was at first go back in November. Many of the features included in this update for both the OnePlus 6 and 6T were sent to OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T earlier this year. They were sent to these newest of OnePlus smartphones in September - also with a hitch or two, but ready to roll now nonetheless.

OnePlus Bug Bounty Program launched to prevent further security breaches

OnePlus Bug Bounty Program launched to prevent further security breaches

Squashing bugs of the software kind is no easy task. It is logistically impossible for developers to find and fix all possible bugs but users and customers do expect them to cover the most critical ones. On the flip side, developers and companies can only hope that users report the bugs they come across rather than exploit them for personal gain. That doesn't always happen, which is why bug bounties were born. Now OnePlus is opening not one but two such programs to stop this year's two massive breaches from happening again.

OnePlus Concept One phone could be a foldable but don’t get your hopes up

OnePlus Concept One phone could be a foldable but don’t get your hopes up

It's hard to believe that OnePlus just celebrated its sixth birthday when it feels like it was only yesterday when it started challenging the big boys in the smartphone market. Save for things like its DASH, formerly Warp, fast charging tech, the company's biggest innovation in the industry has been the combination of premium specs, decent software, and a price to die for. Come CES in next January, however, it will try to showcase it can also take on the industry giants in innovation but don't hold your breath that it will be something you'll be able to buy.

OnePlus 8 Lite renders hint at a return to an affordable mid-range phone

OnePlus 8 Lite renders hint at a return to an affordable mid-range phone

When OnePlus started out, it made headlines and heads turn with is very aggressive campaign to offer a premium flagship phone at almost half the price with no or few compromises. Even OnePlus, however, couldn't hold back the tides of change and increasing prices but, at one point, did try to offer a sort of compromise for those with more constrained budgets. Now it seems that OnePlus will be making yet another attempt to produce a mid-range phone with the rather odd name of OnePlus 8 Lite.

After trying T-Mobile’s new 5G and OnePlus’ 7T Pro 5G McLaren I’m excited and frustrated

I've been testing out T-Mobile's new 600MHz 5G network on the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren, and if you thought 5G was confusing now, get ready for a whole other level of head-scratching. 600MHz - aka low-band - 5G has a huge advantage in that deployment is relatively straightforward, but as my experience this week with both phone and network has found, not all 5G is created equal.
