Huawei says the Mate 10 Pro is "the best phone you've never heard of," will bring it to the US next week

Last month, Huawei said that it would showcase a flagship
smartphone at CES 2018 in order to officially launch it in the US. We were
expecting that flagship handset to be the Android Oreo-based Mate 10 Pro, and now Huawei is confirming
this.

 

Huawei will bring the Mate 10 Pro to CES 2018 presenting it as “the best phone you’ve never heard of.” By you, the
company means US customers, as Huawei’s smartphones are already quite popular
in other regions around the globe, including Asia and Europe.

 

But is the Mate 10 Pro really the best phone you’ve never
heard of? Well, that’s …

Apple developing "the most advanced" power management chips, could premiere on iPhones as soon as 2018

Apple seems to be aiming to reduce its dependence on suppliers. Earlier this year, Cupertino cut its ties with GPU maker Imagination Technologies and later introduced an in-house graphics chip on its latest A11 SoC.

According to sources of Nikkei Asian Review, the new power management chips would be “the most advanced in the industry”. A power management chip controls …

Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL use OIS and EIS to take "the shake" out of videos

The Google Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL can produce videos with images that are so steady, they appear to have been shot using a tripod. But the truth is, you can just hold your Pixel 2/Pixel 2 XL in your hand and even if you are jittery, the phone uses what Google calls Fused Video Stabilization. Essentially, this is a combination of optical image stabilization (OIS) and electronic image stabilization (EIS).

Besides a shaking camera that can cause videos to look like you shot them in a hurricane, other things can cause your videos to appear jumpy. Moving the camera too fast can create …

The iPhone X is "the iPhone of the future". Cool. Here are 4 things that would've made it better

The iPhone X is a beautiful device, for sure. But let’s be fair here, after all the bezel-less phones we’ve seen this year, it’s hardly mind-blowing. So, it’s up to the X to wow us with features that will leave the competition in the dust or at least ones that would make our jaws pop for a minute or two. That’s not a hard ask for a $999 phone, is it?

All-around, it’s a solid iPhone — the most advanced iPhone Apple has ever made, as the Cupertinians like to say. But we still have a few things on our wish list that really would’ve blown us away. Check them out in …

OnePlus CEO says OnePlus 5 will be "the thinnest flagship phone"

The OnePlus 5 is officially launching sometime this summer, and we already know that it’s going to be a very powerful smartphone – thanks to Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor. We also know that the upcoming handset features a rear camera made in collaboration with DxO, has a fingerprint scanner on the front, and (most likely) won’t ditch the standard 3.5mm headset jack.

Now, thanks to OnePlus CEO and co-founder Pete Lau, we have yet another detail about the OnePlus 5. In a post made on Weibo (China’s largest micro-blogging platform), Pete Lau suggests that the OnePlus 5 will be very …

EFF: Verizon's new AppFlash launcher is "The First Horseman of the Privacy Apocalypse"

Verizon has announced its newest addition to its ever-growing roster of custom default Android applications today: AppFlash, an app launcher and search utility built into Verizon’s smartphones, which the Electronic Frontier Foundation, the US’ largest digital privacy advocate, calls ‘spyware’.

On March 28, the United States Congress voted to reduce broadband privacy protections in a move widely criticized by privacy activists, as it would let Internet providers sell users’ data without their permission. This, according to EFF, is what prompted the …
