T-Mobile, Sprint merger may have SoftBank put it all on the line

T-Mobile, Sprint merger may have SoftBank put it all on the line

Today we're hearing a whopper of a rumor that could have pretty big implications for the US carrier space. SoftBank is apparently eager to see Sprint, one of its subsidiaries, merge with T-Mobile, but resistance from T-Mobile parent company Deutsche Telekom would make such a merger difficult. With Deutsche Telekom unwilling to sell its stake in T-Mobile, it sounds like SoftBank is prepared to put a lot on the line - namely, giving up its majority share in Sprint.

5″ iPhone 8 reportedly won’t include wireless charger or 3.5mm dongle

A 5-inch "tweener" iPhone 8, in-between 2017's 4.7-inch and 5.5-inch iPhones, has again been rumored, along with new - and potentially frustrating - details on charging and accessories.

Xiaomi smartphone chip plans could see Qualcomm face-off

Xiaomi may have surged rapidly into the public eye (and all that without - officially - a phone on sale in the US) but its next ambitions are even bigger: ousting Qualcomm from its devices. The Chinese company - which has everything from smartphones through smart TVs, and portable batteries to smart home gadgets in its line-up - is notorious for its loyal and vocal fans and aggressive pricing. Now, Xioami is reportedly turning to silicon.

iPhone 8 wireless charging a 2017 certainty says analyst

We've heard plenty of rumors about the iPhone 8 and its expected features, but one of the most persistent rumors has centered around wireless charging. Wireless charging has been a long awaited iPhone feature, and over the past few years, each new phone in the line has been rumored to have it. Of course, reveals have come and gone without any mention of wireless charging, but according to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, that trend will end with the iPhone 8.

Apple Campus 2 represents the best and worst of Apple’s obsession

Apple's obsessive attention to detail has delayed its spaceship-like Campus 2 almost as much as it has frustrated those working on it, a new report suggests. The donut-shaped facility which, eventually, will house more than fourteen thousand of Apple's staff after they move from their current sprawling facilities is being treated with the same fastidious care as the iPhone 8 is. However, in typical Apple fashion, actually delivering that isn't quite such an elegant experience as using it.

Samsung Galaxy S8 leaks: Tiny bezels, moved fingerprint sensor, more

The Samsung Galaxy S8 has been caught in the wild, ahead of the new flagship smartphone's release in just a few months time. The hotly-anticipated Android device has been the subject of fierce speculation in the months since Samsung was forced to recall the Galaxy Note 7 following its battery meltdowns, with questions as to whether Samsung would condense Note and S-Series functionality into the same device.
