Surprisingly, Nokia 6 2nd Generation gets Android 8.0 Oreo at first boot

We already know HMD Global is pretty fast when it comes to software update, but we didn’t think it’s that fast. A few days ago, the Finnish company added a new device to its portfolio of smartphones available in China, the Nokia 6 2nd Generation (or Nokia 6 2018).

Even though Nokia 6 2nd Generation does ship with Nougat on board, the smartphone is getting the …

Bug on iOS 11.1.2. causes some Apple iPhone models to continuously crash starting December 2nd (UPDATE)

UPDATE: Apple has issued iOS 11.2, which solves the date-related crashing issue.

Will Huawei discuss its AI-centered superphone on September 2nd at IFA?

The other day, Huawei sent out a tweet that asked if the future is intelligent. The company plans on answering the question on September 2nd during IFA in Berlin.
