OnePlus 7 and 7T Android 11 update is reportedly very buggy

OnePlus has been making great strides and making big promises regarding its Android updates but it might need a bit more work when it comes to the quality of those updates. Though fortunately not the norm, OnePlus has been known to have pushed updates with rather notable issues, some of them worse than others. That is the unfortunate experience that OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7T owners are reportedly having after the Android 11 and OxygenOS 11 upgrade brought not only new features but also bugs that remain unfixed more than a month later.

New iPhone 13 leak tips a mighty change in size

New iPhone 13 leak tips a mighty change in size

The latest iPhone info leak suggests there'll be a significant change in how the devices look and feel in your hand - when you're looking from the back, or the side. If you're the sort of person who never looks at the back of your phone and always uses a protective case the differences may not seem all that extreme. The biggest change comes in the Pro model, where the camera array becomes massive.

Vivo X phones will get three years of Android upgrades

Vivo X phones will get three years of Android upgrades

Android has long been criticized for its fragmentation, especially when it comes to OS updates. New iOS versions are almost always installed within just weeks after its release while some Android phones are still left with versions two or three years old. Of course, part of the problem lies with manufacturers that updated slowly or even rarely. Recently, however, these companies have been stepping up their commitments and Vivo is the latest to promise three years of major Android OS upgrades, at least for its flagship phones.

Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold PC Mode is a Galaxy Z Fold 3 must-have

Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold PC Mode is a Galaxy Z Fold 3 must-have

Xiaomi formally jumped on the foldable phone train this year and, at least at first glance, looks a lot like what Samsung and, later, Huawei already had. Xiaomi was seemingly just aiming for brand recognition than features. That said, the Xiaomi Mi Mix Fold finally just got a feature that does give it unique feature of its own. Ironically, this new PC Mode that turns the phone into a tablet PC is something that Samsung's Galaxy Z Fold doesn't have despite being the creator of the similar DeX Mode.

Galaxy S21 FE, Galaxy Z Fold 3, Galaxy Z Flip 3 might launch in August

It seems that Samsung is really trying to step up its schedule this year, but perhaps not too early as expected. Initial reports claimed that Samsung's next Unpacked event would take place in July, considerably earlier than it had ever done in the past years. A new report now says that the event will instead be in August again but, more importantly, Samsung will reportedly have three phones to launch, all of which are meant to fill in the gap that the Galaxy Note will leave this year.

Sharp Aquos R6 leak hints at Leica collaboration

Sharp Aquos R6 leak hints at Leica collaboration

Although a well-established name in the photography industry, Leica has mostly been known in the smartphone market through Huawei's flagship phones, particularly the ones that took the top spots in benchmarks. That exclusive partnership has pretty much ended and other phone makers have been quick to pair up with the camera and optics maker. Apparently, OnePlus isn't the only one aiming for that distinction and Sharp's next premium phone might also bear Leica's name, though perhaps in an odd way.

Huawei Harmony OS might be adopted by Xiaomi, OPPO, and Vivo

Huawei Harmony OS might be adopted by Xiaomi, OPPO, and Vivo

In response to the US' sanctions and export bans, Huawei has been waging a campaign to rid itself of its dependence on Google's mobile operating system, or at least its proprietary parts. Although it sounds like an epic endeavor to replace Android, Huawei's Harmony OS definitely has big ambitions to be present in almost all smart markets. Going just beyond its own smartphones, however, there are now rumors that Huawei wants to spread its new platform to other phones as well, including those from its competitors and compatriots in China.

Nokia Android 11 update delays made official

Nokia Android 11 update delays made official

Although it does try its best to update its dozens of phone models, it seems that this strategy is catching up to HMD Global. Despite its boast of shipping pretty much vanilla Android, the company is struggling to keep its phones up-to-date with the latest release of Android. Now nearing the middle of the year, HMD Global is releasing a revised timeline for its Android 11 updates and it isn't looking good for the company's reputation.
