WhatsApp private info “leak” video goes viral

WhatsApp private info “leak” video goes viral

This morning a potentially hazardous feature in WhatsApp was the subject of a Tweet and video, both of which went viral. What we're going to do right now is discuss whether the information these bit of media present is an actual hazard for the end user - you. If you're worried about your data being shared with 3rd-party users, there's little to worry about - sort of.

Be aware which Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra you buy if you need 4G LTE

Be aware which Sony Xperia XA1 Ultra you buy if you need 4G LTE

Not all smartphones are created equal. That pretty much is a fact of the mobile life. Sometimes, even those with the same name can differ in features, depending on the region. Just like the LG G6 with its Quad DAC enabled Korean model and wireless charging US model. It seems that Sony has followed suit but in a potentially more confusing way. Available in the US via Amazon or Best Buy, the Xperia XA1 Ultra supports 4G LTE networks in general, but only one of those will work with US bands.

iPhone 8 might also have a 3D sensor on its back

iPhone 8 might also have a 3D sensor on its back

It seems that 3D will be making a big splash on the iPhone 8 in more ways than one. It has already been speculated, by no less than famed analyst Ming-Chi Kuo himself, that the 10th anniversary iPhone would have a 3D sensor on the front for advanced facial recognition. Now there is word coming from certain sources that the back camera will also have a 3D laser sensor that will be used not just for autofocus but also for augmented reality. As if Apple didn’t have too much on its plate already.

Nextbit will close its support doors end of the month

Nextbit will close its support doors end of the month

The writing has been on the wall for months now so this doesn’t come as a surprise. After all, Nextbit is no longer the captain of its own ship, not after gaming accessory maker Razer bought it in January. Since then, Nextbit, or Razer, has slowly been closing doors. By the end of the month, the second to the last door will also be closed, with Nextbit ending most of its support channels once and for all.

Meizu PRO 7 second screen might actually be a mirror only

Meizu PRO 7 second screen might actually be a mirror only

Well, now it makes more sense now. Not completely but it’s just a wee bit less ridiculous than before. When rumors started to swirl around the Meizu PRO 7’s second screen, it was rather confusing. That screen wasn’t some grayscale, power saving screen on the back but a full color one. Based on a new set of photos leaking on the Internet, it might not even be a second screen as we know it so far. Instead, it will simply be a mirror screen.

LG invite teases V30 unveiling at IFA next month

LG invite teases V30 unveiling at IFA next month

LG is gearing up to announce a new phone next month at IFA in Berlin, and all signs point toward that phone being the anticipated V30 handset. The invite is vague, minimalist but clever enough, presenting the date and time -- August 31 at 0900, to be precise -- on the home screen of a phone...or, at least, the silhouette of a phone.

This KFC chicken phone is part of our new dystopian reality

This KFC chicken phone is part of our new dystopian reality

A Huawei-made KFC-branded smartphone is coming to China, and the entire smartphone industry should be ashamed. This should, by all means, be the end of consumers assuming that smartphones are something for which they should pay a premium. A smartphone is no longer a precious sort of item that has inherent value beyond its assembled components - and it's KFC's fault.

iPhone 8’s software isn’t ready yet either, dread ensues at Apple

iPhone 8’s software isn’t ready yet either, dread ensues at Apple

Although Touch ID is the favorite whipping boy for whatever delays or flaws the iPhone 8 might, it is apparently far from being the only source of worry for Cupertino. This time, however, it isn’t the new hardware that’s the problem but the software using those hardware. If theses issues aren’t resolved in time, Apple might be forced to either delay the iPhone 8 launch or ship it on time with certain features disabled. Neither are ideal scenarios for this 10th anniversary smartphone.
