The in-display fingerprint senors are clearly going to be one of the trends of 2018. Major players on the mobile scene have yet to adopt it, but at this point, we’re pretty sure it’s a matter of time more than anything else. Things are lot more dynamic with Chinese OEMs who typically have shorter development cycles and less regulation and certification involved, so it’s hardly any surprise that Xiaomi is already jumping on the bandwagon. The company’s eagerly-anticipated Mi 7 flagship could have actually been delayed in order to adopt the new technology. Evidence of this was recently…
Few hours back OnePlus released a teaser saying that the phone will have “the speed you need,” and also confirmed the OnePlus 6 name. Now, in a new post CEO Pete Lau discussed about the performance of the upcoming flagship and said that that company has created specialized team called Team FSE (Fast, Stable, Efficient) to focus solely on maximizing the power of our flagship devices. In addition to Snapdragon 845 SoC, he also confirmed 8GB of RAM with 256GB storage version of the smartphone. It is not clear if the company will have the 8GB RAM with 128GB storage version as well. In the forum post, Pete Lau, CEO and Founder of OnePlus said: Understanding the relationship between people and smartphones, we brainstormed with our community of OnePlus users to learn what the users want most – a flexible, light and quick experience. Keeping these parameters at heart, we have conceptualized the OnePlus 6. To make this experience a reality we have established within our ranks a special R&D unit, called Team FSE (Fast, Stable, Efficient). The one goal of this unit is to ensure that we can transcend the current norm with providing our users with what we believe to be a …
OnePlus has taken to its forum to confirm that the upcoming OnePlus 6 (whose name was recently confirmed in a tweet to no one’s surprise), will be coming in a 256GB variant. Apart from that, the company also confirmed that it will have 8GB RAM (same as the last two models) and run on the new top-of-the-line Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 processor. Okay, then And that’s pretty much it. OnePlus did spend far too many words in its forum post describing this one small feature, going on about the “pursuit of burdenless speed” (whatever that means) and also how it has a FSE Team, which stands…
One day after kicking off its OnePlus 6 teaser campaign, OnePlus has confirmed a few more spec details of its upcoming flagship.
OnePlus CEO Pete Lau has confirmed that the OnePlus 6 will include a Snapdragon 845 processor as well as up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage. “We believe a truly ‘burdenless user experience’ can transcend the current norm,” Lau said. “In experiential terms this means the phone functions just the way you expect it to, without lag or disturbance. In design terms, a focus on beauty in simplicity, with no unnecessary features added.”
“Through this process, we have realized that a truly fast and smooth user experience can realize a burdenless experience,” the CEO explained.
Rumors have suggested that the OnePlus 6 could have a Snapdragon 845, 8GB of RAM, and 256GB of storage, so it’s nice to have these features officially confirmed by OnePlus. The company has long focused on making its flagship phones competitive with other flagships on the market, and it’s starting to look like the OnePlus 6 will be no different.
OnePlus has said that it’s aiming to launch the OnePlus 6 in late Q2 2018, so expect a few more teasers and spec drops like this in the coming weeks.
Over the past few days, OnePlus has been leaking details of its upcoming flagship, the OnePlus 6. The company revealed that the phone would indeed have a notch, then established that it would indeed be called ‘OnePlus 6.’ In its latest post, OnePlus has confirmed the 6’s performance-related specifications: the Snapdragon 845, 8GB of RAM, and up to a whopping 256GB of storage.
OnePlus CEO Pete Lau published a post earlier today entitled ‘Our Pursuit of Burdenless Speed.’ Most of it just discusses how OnePlus is committed to producing a smooth and powerful user experience, even creating a specialized team called Team FSE (Fast, Stable, Efficient) for this very effort.
OnePlus 6 confirmed to have Snapdragon 845, up to 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage was written by the awesome team at Android Police.
We can now add another name to the list of Android devices that are embracing the notch: the OnePlus 6.
OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei has confirmed that the OnePlus 6 will have a notch, similar to the iPhone X, Essential Phone, and Huawei P20. Pei explains that OnePlus is adding the notch to the OP6 to give more screen real estate to the user. “What you are essentially doing is moving the entire notification bar up, giving users more content on their screen,” he said.
Pei went on to explain that OnePlus isn’t simply slapping a notch on the OnePlus 6 and calling it a day. The company has tested 1,000 Android apps to figure out which need a compatibility mode to play nicely with the OnePlus 6’s notch, and it will move its system clock to the left side of the screen to give more room to notification icons. OnePlus will also hide the notch when th user is playing video.
Finally, OnePlus said that the OP6’s notch is smaller than the one found on the iPhone X, measuring in at 19.616mm x 7.687mm.
One other tidbit about the OnePlus 6 that was confirmed by Pei is that the phone will indeed have a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Some people will surely be upset that the OnePlus 6 has a notch, as it’s regularly seen as companies simply copying Apple just to copy Apple. OnePlus seems to have genuinely put some thought into how and why it’s going to use a notch on the OP6, though, and so if you’ve been looking forward to the OnePlus 6, you shouldn’t let this notch news dampen your excitement.
Recently Samsung SM-A600FN and SM-A605G surfaced on Geekbench earlier, pointing to the a Galaxy A6 and Galaxy A6+ smartphones being prepared for a launch.

A new smartphone code-named Blackshark surfaced on AnTuTu and Geekbench recently, which is believed to be Xiaomi’s first gaming smartphone under the new Black shark brand, in which Xiaomi started investing last year. Now the official Black Shark account on weibo and Qualcomm China have confirmed that it will be powered by Snapdragon 845. Earlier rumors revealed 8GB of RAM, Android 8.0 Oreo and 2160 x 1080 FHD+ 18:9 display for the phone. The phone is rumored come with a 120 Hz display to compete with the Razer Phone.

Since it has officially been confirmed, we can expected more details about the device in the coming weeks, and unveiling probably sometime in April or early May, 2018. Source
When the Android P Developer Preview was announced, there were several Google devices that didn’t have any images available for download: the Nexus 5X, the Nexus 6P, the Pixel C, and the Nexus Player. Google confirmed that the first three in those list would not get Android P, but nothing was said about the Nexus Player then. The company has now confirmed to us that the Nexus Player will not receive Android P.

It’s been a while since Samsung launched a high-end tablet, but the wait could be almost over. A couple of days ago an upcoming slate from the Korean company was spotted in a benchmark and based on its model number it’s assumed to be the Galaxy Tab S4. Now it’s been caught in another benchmark, HTML5Test, where its screen aspect ratio is confirmed as being 16:10. That’s a bit odd considering that the Galaxy Tab S3 from last year used the 4:3 aspect ratio. It looks like Samsung decided it was time for a change. When you look at the screenshot above, keep in mind that HTML5Test…
