The OnePlus 5T is the ‘T’ successor to the excellent OnePlus 5 from earlier this year. While the handset sports largely the same specifications as the 5, OnePlus have made some key design improvements and added some noteworthy new features.
Honor recently launched its new mid-range handset, the Honor 7X. While the Honor 6X saw a staggered launch, the 7X has seen a wider launch and will go on sale in India, the United States and parts of Europe within the next week or two.
Earlier this year, a Googler revealed that the “Check for update” button on Pixel and Nexus devices would actually let users pull down the latest OTA update from the server even if there is a limitation from Google on the rollout. However, the functionality only seemed to work for a short while as hundreds of Pixel and Nexus users tried pulling the latest Android 8.1 OTA update from Google by mashing the ‘Check for update’ button on their device to no avail.
One day ago, the rumor mill produced information about a new Huawei-branded smartphone called the Nova 2s. And it turns out most of that information was spot-on.
Attending Honor’s big event this week in London, I couldn’t help shake the feeling that despite their claims about innovation, and a few software tweaks aside, all they really did was copy what has already been done and make it cheaper to end users. From the 2:1 display – understandable – to a new, upcoming front camera projector and ID system, teased for 2018, that’s set to be a carbon copy of what the iPhone X does – complete with Animoji. However, like most of us, I’m all for making things cheaper, and I loved last year’s Honor 6X – really decent specs and capabilities in a premium-feeling phone that cost around £220 or so. Amazing. Can the 7X live up to the same billing?

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are already pretty expensive smartphones but for some reason, they launched with an even steeper price tag. For example, the smaller Pixel 2 carried a price tag of Rs 61,000 which equates to about $953. Now, if you have been holding back on buying the Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL due to their high price tag, you can pick one up at a heavy discount through Flipkart.
After a formal announcement yesterday, Qualcomm today provided more details about its Snapdragon 845 mobile platform which will power the next-generation of Android smartphones in 2018.
Smartphones with a pair of cameras on the back is becoming a familiar occurrence these days, and Huawei will keep that trend going strong with at least one more of its upcoming smartphones.
