OnePlus 5T unboxing leaked, removed, reuploaded for posterity

OnePlus 5T unboxing leaked, removed, reuploaded for posterity

The OnePlus 5T is probably the company’s worst kept secret. Not that there’s much to be kept secret anyway. For all intents and purposes, it is the OnePlus 5 with a different screen and a relocated fingerprint sensor. That still didn’t stop the flood of leaks surrounding OnePlus’s first 18:9 phone. Hot on the heels of a set of photos is a nearly five-minute-long unboxing video of the OnePlus 5T that pretty much leaves nothing left to the imagination. Or for OnePlus to announce later this week.

Nexus, Pixel phones won’t get their KRACK fix until December

Nexus, Pixel phones won’t get their KRACK fix until December

Google devices, like the Nexus before and now the Pixel phones, have always been prided on getting patches and updates a lot earlier than even the fastest OEMs, of which there are only very few. But in this particular instance, Google will be rolling out one specific fix a lot later than some of those OEMs or even third-party Android ROM makers. Unfortunately, it’s an instance where time might even be more critical, as Nexus and Pixel devices remain vulnerable to the KRACK exploit until Google finally rolls out the fix next month.

The Pixel 2 XL is already known to have several issues with its display, including muted colors and burn-in, but now users are discovering yet another problem with Google's larger smartphone.

iPhone X Face ID beaten with 3D-printed mask

iPhone X Face ID beaten with 3D-printed mask

With its new flagship iPhone X, Apple has touted just secure the device's Face ID technology is, and for the most part it's been a hit, with relatively few reports of the system not working properly or letting the wrong person unlock the phone. The security researchers at Bkav, however, have gone to great lengths to thwart the facial recognition technology, to see what it would take. Turns out they've found success using a strange-looking 3D-printed mask.

Some iPhone X displays have developed a bright green line

Some iPhone X displays have developed a bright green line

Some iPhone X owners are reporting that a bright green line has developed on their handset's display. The line is terribly thick on some phones, though very slim on others, typically running vertically from top to bottom on either the right or left side. Restarting the phone doesn't get rid of the green line, according to affected users, who say that Apple is replacing the devices with new units.

2018 Galaxy A5 with Infinity Display teased in benchmarks

2018 Galaxy A5 with Infinity Display teased in benchmarks

The 2018 version of the Samsung Galaxy A5 may feature an Infinity Display, the same display found on the Galaxy S8 handsets. The use of Infinity Display means the home button will be eliminated from the front of the phone, and we'll likely see the fingerprint sensor put on the back of the handset. Assuming this is all true, it'll give Samsung fans an option for an Infinity Display that is cheaper than the existing handsets with this feature.

Pixel 2 fused video stabilization tech detailed: how it combines EIS and OIS

Pixel 2 fused video stabilization tech detailed: how it combines EIS and OIS

Smartphone cameras may be improving rapidly, but the resulting videos are only as good as the stabilization tech accompanying them. While many companies are introducing optical image stabilization on their smartphones, Google took things a step further with its Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL phones, offering something it calls Fused Video Stabilization. Fused stabilization aims to make up for the deficits of both electronic stabilization (EIS) and optical stabilization (OIS) by combining the best both have to offer.

OnePlus 5T leaked in full on Reddit and Twitter

OnePlus 5T leaked in full on Reddit and Twitter

OnePlus 5T leaks today seem to have spilled all the beans - specs, photos, and the whole lot. This next-gen smartphone seems to be similar to its predecessor without being nearly as much of a 1:1 comparable device as the 3T was to the 3. Here, OnePlus seems to have given the device the boost it needs not just on the inside, but in its display and around the edges, as well.

Sony Xperia XZ Premium now available in stunning Red for the US

Sony Xperia XZ Premium now available in stunning Red for the US

With the arrival of new late 2017 flagships, it seems almost too easy to forget those that came a bit earlier. Especially when those early 2017 flagships aren’t as flashy as the new ones. As if to remind US buyers of just months old phones, Sony has somewhat silently made available a new Xperia XZ Premium variant in the US that is at least eye-catching in its color. Trying to somewhat buck the new trend of shiny glass backs and all-screen phones, Sony has added Red to its roster.

iPhone X bug causes touch problems in cold weather

iPhone X bug causes touch problems in cold weather

Some iPhone X owners are reporting an unusual issue in which the phone's display becomes unresponsive or laggy when the handset is exposed to a cold environment. The biggest example of this seems to be someone stepping from inside of a warm house out into the cold outdoors. Owners experiencing this problem say the unresponsiveness takes place immediately, not just when the phone itself cools down.

iOS 11.1.1 release fixes iPhone’s weird “i” autocorrect

iOS 11.1.1 release fixes iPhone’s weird “i” autocorrect

Today Apple fixed one of the strangest errors in code the company's likely ever had to deal with. The newest version of iOS corrects the software's autocorrection of the letter "i." Autocorrect of the letter I in its lower-cased form became quite a significant sort of nonsense for users over the past week, as you can imagine, since most users aren't too keen on making certain every I is capitalized.
