Pixel 2's Active Edge feature looks set to reappear on the Pixel 3 lineup

After it was recently revealed that the latest Android P Beta contained code which hinted at wireless charging support on the Pixel 3 lineup, newly-discovered strands now suggest an update to last year’s Active Edge feature may also be in the works.

According to XDA Developers, references to the feature were initially spotted after the “WakeMode” class, which is associated with the Active Edge feature, had been slightly modified in the latest update. Specifically, it now contained a newer “isWakeSettingEnabled” method that itself included references to the Crosshatch and Blueline codenames …

Apple might be kickstarting trial production of its 2018 iPhone lineup soon to avoid bottlenecks

Apple is rumored to be kicking off trial production of its three anticipated 2018 iPhone models in late Q2 2018, a bit earlier than last year. This heavily hints that all three devices that are expected to debut in early September will launch together.
The reason for this “rush” is most certainly Apple’s desire to avoid last year’s supply mishaps that caused the iPhone X to hit the shelves at a later date than the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus, which hurt the overall sales of the device. In particular, the low yield of infrared 3D sensors for the iPhone X’s FaceID functionality …

Alcatel reveals its 2018 smartphone lineup, promises immersive 18:9 display experience

Alcatel can’t miss a major tech event like CES (Consumer Electronics Show), even if the smartphone brand is not quite ready to introduce new products. However, a little bit of self-promotion and sneak peeks at what’s to come doesn’t hurt.

So, until the big reveal drops at MWC (Mobile World Congress) next month, the company confirmed its 2018 smartphone lineup will be split in three series: Alcatel 5, Alcatel 3 and Alcatel 1.

Alcatel is an international brand, which means many of the brand’s smartphones are available in just about every corner of the world. In the United States, Alcatel is known for its Idol lineup, which usually comprises of high-end smartphones.

Lenovo’s Mirage Mixed Reality headset appears to be at the center of the video, but other products like the Lenovo …
