Android 8.0 Oreo brought along light/dark theme shift dependent on your wallpaper’s hues, but only for Google’s new Pixel phones, while each and every device with OLED display could benefit from a true Dark Mode in its own right.
Huawei is one of the big names that will have a presence at MWC 2018 in less than a week’s time, but sadly, you shouldn’t expect a new flagship to be unveiled at the large trade show. It has been confirmed for a while now that the third-largest smartphone manufacturer will reveal its flagship devices for the year, the Huawei P20 and P20 Plus, at a separate event that will take place on March 27. That’s more than a month from now, but at least we already have a pretty good idea why we should be excited and what to expect from these two troopers.

While the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus are now in the official list of Netflix-certified phones that can display its HDR10 and Dolby Vision content, you won’t be getting the real HDR experience, as the standard’s requirements are only covered in full by the upcoming iPhone X. Not that Apple has been claiming otherwise, as it does list just the iPhone X as fully HDR-compliant in its own specs comparison table with the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.
Bezel-less smartphones have already become a trend in the industry. Few major smartphone brands have yet to launch an almost bezel-less handset, but come 2018 those few will probably embrace the new trend as well.
Unless there won’t be enough all-screen displays that these smartphones require. In fact, there’s currently a shortage of smartphone panels, which is expected to continue into 2018. The main cause is the strong demand for “customized all-screen panels” and not enough manufacturers to fulfill it.

Back at the end of June, we told you how former Wall Street analyst Gene Munster said that the Apple iPhone will eventually be supplanted in popularity by the company’s rumored pair of AR smartglasses. Munster says that iPhone sales will peak in 2019 with the launch of Apple’s smartglasses beginning the following year. It is hard to believe that a pair of glasses with Augmented Display will become more popular than one of the most beloved smartphone brands in the world.
Smartglasses are going to be a whole new ballgame, although at first blush the product will drive iPhone sales since …
