PSA: OnePlus website payment system may have been hacked – users report credit card details stolen

OnePlus is well-known for offering awesome devices at unbelievably low prices and the company does a few things to make sure its corner-cutting doesn’t come from the actual hardware. Since it started out small, it built its name via guerilla marketing and selling its phones directly to customers. There are no retailers to take a cut of the pie — you just go to OnePlus’ website and order your brand-new “flagship killer” there.

However, it seems that the company might need to work on its security a bit more. Multiple users are now reporting that their credit card …

This new Google website shows all possible Google Assistant commands and interactions

Google is really betting high on its Google Assistant, which is now available on almost any contemporary Android device, a ton of existing and new smart speakers, and soon coming to an automobile near you. Google representatives also made a lot of cameos at various manufacturers’ keynote events at the currently-ongoing CES 2018 show. 
One can palpably feel it in the air that Google really really wants the Assistant to take off and become more mainstream.
But useful it may be, the majority of useful features of the smart bot are still …

Apple revamps the privacy page on its website

Apple has revised the privacy page on its website. “Apple products are designed to do amazing things. And designed to protect your privacy,” says the big print at the top of the page. Apple goes on to talk about some of the security and privacy features it offers on its devices. Fingerprint scanning Touch ID is called “the most advanced security technology on any personal device.”

Apple adds that it doesn’t collect the information created when users ask questions for Siri to answer. And Apple’s Differential Privacy means that data belonging to an iPhone owner is scrambled, added to the data …

For reasons unknown, Huawei has removed all EMUI images from its website

In a surprising turn of events, Huawei has decided to remove all EMUI images for its smartphones from its official website. Usually, Huawei smartphone owners could download and flash ROM images from a dedicated website, which came in handy when new versions of EMUI would be uploaded by the Chinese company.

Now when you visit Huawei’s website that was hosting the download links, you are met with a message that informs you all EMUI images have been removed.

To deliver a more convenient and satisfactory update service, Huawei now only provides online updates …

Samsung Galaxy Note 8 makes a quick appearance on Samsung's U.S. website

This coming Wednesday, we will see the introduction of the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. Just the other day, Sammy’s U.S. website jumped the gun by accidentally posting the U.S. unlocked version of the high-end phablet. The model number, UZKAXAA, fits in with the stateside unlocked version of the Samsung Galaxy S8. The listing has been since taken down and can no longer be found on the website.

There really isn’t much that we can take away from this brief appearance except that 64GB of native storage will indeed be found on the base model of the Galaxy Note 8. And it also suggests that the unlocked …

Black and gold Note 8 placeholders already posted on a carrier website

Not that it should come as a huge surprise, but carriers are already stocking up on the Galaxy Note 8, and prepping their websites for the big commercial launch. Sometimes they also inadvertently post those website updates before the due date next Wednesday, and Orange Romania had just such a moment. 

As you can see from the screenshots above, the carrier already lists the Note 8 among its portfolio of phones, and even specifies the color versions that will be available at launch – black and gold. We already saw the Midnight Black and Deep …

Nokia 8 was apparently listed on an official Nokia website (but not for long)

Expected to be officially announced at the end of this month, on July 31, the Nokia 8 will (probably) become the very first high-end Nokia smartphone since the brand has been resurrected.

While HMD Global and Nokia haven’t confirmed anything about the upcoming handset, we’ve already seen renders allegedly showing it. What’s more, it looks like today, for a brief period of time, Nokia inadvertently listed the new smartphone on its official Chinese website.

Right now, there’s no mention of the Nokia 8 on Nokia’s Chinese website, but some fans say the handset was definitely spotted …

Instagram now lets you upload photos from its mobile website

Instagram users are no longer required to have the app installed on their smartphones, as this feature has been added to Instagram’s mobile website. Although the functionality of the website is still limited when compared to the app, it is gradually being expanded upon with new additions. Previously the mobile web version of Instagram offered only a basic set of features to its users, such as browsing and liking photos, searching, and checking notifications.

Along with the option to share photos, a simpler version of Instagram’s Explore tab is also rolling out to …
