OnePlus 6: Here’s what to expect from the flagship killer

OnePlus 6: Here’s what to expect from the flagship killer

OnePlus started out life crying out is “Never Settle” slogan and proclaiming its firstborn, the OnePlus One, as the flagship killer. Since then, we’ve so far had four (not five) such killers and there’s one more coming in two months. And while almost every OnePlus phone has had its fair share of controversy, the OnePlus 6 might end up being the most divisive of them all, thanks to some feature that may make it seem that the company is willing to settle after all.

ZTE Axon M teardown reveals dual screen secrets

ZTE Axon M teardown reveals dual screen secrets

Foldable phones are set to become the next big thing in mobile in a year or two but ZTE, and Kyocera before it, already had a long head start. Granted, the Axon M is almost ridiculous and not exactly what people have in mind when they think “foldable phone”. It’s still an interesting and, more importantly, actually working take on the future and JerryRigEverything’s Zack Nelson takes the dual screen phone apart so see if it has anything else to yield.

iPhone’s future could include gesture controls and curved OLED

You've probably noticed by now, but a lot of today's flagship phones have very similar feature lists and specification sheets. As a result, many manufacturers are looking for ways to make their phones stand out from the crowd. This isn't limited to just the realm of Android, either, as Apple is said to be considering two big features for future iPhones that could help differentiate them in an increasingly crowded market.

Galaxy S9 mini spotted on Geekbench

Galaxy S9 mini spotted on Geekbench

Once upon a time, premium phones were often accompanied by smaller, less powerful, and less expensive "mini" or "lite" models. Those included the Xperia Compacts, Huawei P Lites, and Galaxy minis. Samsung used to practice that but seems to have silently dropped its mini flagship line after the Galaxy S5 mini above. As mysteriously as it disappeared, it seems to be returning with what may be the Galaxy S9 mini. That is, if the SM-G8750 seen in Geekbench will indeed carry that name.

HTC U12+ coming in a few weeks

It might be a do or die launch for HTC next month. Skipping CES and MWC and steering clear of any other major device announcement, sources are saying that the Taiwanese company is preparing to unveil its first and perhaps only flagship smartphone in early May. If the leaks are anything to go by, the HTC U12+, as it is being called, could be a breath of fresh air amidst the growing number of notched smartphones. That, however, might not be enough to carry it, and HTC’s smartphone business, forward for long.

Galaxy S6 line will no longer get updates, security fixes [UPDATE]

Samsung is notorious for its slow and sometimes even non-existent update. But it seems that at least with the Galaxy S6 brood, the OEM did well by its customers. Although it’s definitely sad news to hear that the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge+, and Galaxy S6 Active will no longer be getting even security updates, the three-year-old smartphones have actually lived a good life, having seen two major Android updates and security fixes until February.

LG G7 launch nears, with unexpected Galaxy S9 copycat feature

The LG G7's reveal date has been the subject of a lot of speculation recently.
