Leaked photos of the Moto G6 Play surface on Taiwan regulation site

Images show no notch

Published

For the past few weeks, the Moto G6 family has swirled around the rumor mill. Despite strong leaks for it, Moto’s upcoming phone line was a no-show at MWC 2018. Thankfully, new leaks reveal that the G6 family is alive and well.

Now, it’s time for the Moto G6 Play to come out and… well, play. Taiwanese certification site NCC posted actual images of what looks like a Moto G6 Play. If true, the images confirm the accuracy of recently leaked renders.

The previous Moto G5 family skipped over a Play variant, leaving only a regular G5 and a G5 Plus version. Leaker Evan Blass confirmed that the G6 line will carry a Play variant again.

Since “Play” is usually attached to big battery phones, the Moto G6 Play will purportedly carry a 4000mAh battery. Unlike every other phone out there, the G6 Play’s 5.7-inch screen will not sport a notch despite reducing its bezels. Also, the pictured back seems to have reduced the previous version’s obtuse camera bump, which made way for the first-gen Moto Mods.

Other rumors indicate that the phone will rock a Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 octa-core processor, up to 4GB of RAM, and up to 64GB of internal storage. It might also carry a 16-megapixel rear and 16-megapixel front camera combination. The G6 Play joins the Moto G6 and the G6 Plus in the same line.

Currently, Moto has yet to confirm or address the leaks. However, they have already confirmed that something is in the works for the following weeks.

The OnePlus 6T McLaren Edition is now available for pre-order online through Argomall. It’s priced at PhP 39,990, which is slightly higher than its US$ 699 retail price in the US.

Compared to the regular OnePlus 6T, the McLaren Edition comes with 10GB of memory, 256GB of storage, and the latest Warp Charge technology that can fill up half of the phone’s battery in just 20 minutes.

Also, the special edition phone features a carbon fiber pattern, orange accents, and the McLaren logo on the back.

There’s no exact shipping date for the phone, but it’s already listed on Argomall’s website.

Philippine telcos are now required to unlock phones after lock-in period

Finally, a pro-consumer measure

Published

on

The Philippines’ Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) has ordered the National Telecommunications Commission (NTC) and telcos for the mandatory unlocking of phones and devices after the subscriber’s lock-in period.

The policy is based on the Memorandum Order 004, Series of 2018 issued by DICT on December 14.

According to the memo, subscribers who have completed their contract and have no outstanding obligations can demand telcos to unlock their phones or devices. The process must also be done conveniently and should be shouldered by the service providers.

The NTC is now tasked to draft the Memorandum Circular for the memo’s appropriate rules and regulations and conduct consultations and hearings with affected parties.

There’s no exact date of implementation, but with order already announced to the public, Filipinos will soon have freedom for their network-locked phones given that they have already fulfilled their contract.

Huawei Nova 4 press renders leak before official announcement

It’s the era of holed phones

Published

on

Samsung already announced their new midrange phone that has a hole in the screen. This is the newest display trend after the notch, and Huawei is next in line to present their own. The launch of the Nova 4 is scheduled for next week, but official-looking renders have already leaked online.

The renders further confirm some of the early reports about the Nova 4. The most obvious one is the position of the hole in the display for the front camera, which is expected to be a 25-megapixel sensor. This approach is supposedly less intrusive than having a notch. The Nova 4 will also have a triple-camera setup on the rear that’s strikingly similar to the P20 Pro’s; however, the sensors will not be same.

Rumors suggest that Huawei will have two Nova 4 variants. Both will have the Kirin 970 processor (same on the Nova 3), 8GB of memory, and 128GB of storage. They will also feature the same 16-megapixel monochrome and 2-megapixel depth sensors.

The difference between the two variants is in the main camera. The more expensive one will have a 48-megapixel Sony sensor, while the cheaper variant is stuck with a 20-megapixel sensor. Aside from that, the two variants will be practically identical.

Huawei will announce the Nova 4 on December 17 in China. Based on the leaked renders, it’ll come in a basic black color with red, blue, and white-pink gradient options.
