It’s been a decade since smartphones evolved from touchscreen displays all the way to foldable displays. It started when Samsung revealed the Galaxy Fold while Huawei showed off the Mate X. Even Motorola has their own take with the razr. The developing technology is fast that successors already went in this year with the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip and Huawei Mate Xs.

You may not have heard of TCL but they already stepped into the foldable scene by introducing the DragonHinge concept last year. Fast forward today, they’re introducing not one, but three foldable concepts that might soon compete with your regular smartphone slab.

Here’s our TCL Foldable concept preview.

OnePlus accidentally disables OnePlus 8 Pro’s x-ray camera worldwide

Update rolling out in India

Published

on

Weeks ago, OnePlus confirmed a brewing privacy controversy surrounding the recently released OnePlus 8 Pro. Apparently, the premium smartphone’s Photochrom filter can penetrate through thin material like plastic or clothing. Despite OnePlus’s assurances to the contrary, several reviewers have demonstrated the feature’s strong capabilities. As a result, OnePlus has promised to disable the feature temporarily before working on a more permanent solution.

Surprisingly, after all the hullaballoo, OnePlus is disabling the feature only in Chinese smartphones. Presumably, the invasive feature is a more serious threat in China, compared to other nations. However, a recent update reveals a change of mind. Further, a followup hints at conflicting decisions inside OnePlus.

In India, OnePlus 8 Pro users are receiving new OTA updates — Oxygen OS 10.5.9.IN11, 10.5.9.IN11AA, and 10.5.9.IN11DA — that carries only one item in the patch notes, as posted in the OnePlus forums. As you might expect by now, the exactly similar patches remove the Photochrom filter temporarily “for adjustment.” In this case, “temporarily” is hugely short-term. The update promises the feature’s return “around June.”

However, after users spotted the update, OnePlus has quickly issued a statement, saying that the updates rolled out accidentally. Apparently, the company did not intend to disable the feature for non-Chinese models. As such, an upcoming OTA update will re-enable the feature.

Naturally, if you don’t live in India or China, your OnePlus 8 Pro still has the controversial Photochrom filter. However, OnePlus’s lingering uncertainty in India marks similar uncertainty in handling the privacy controversy.

Can Huawei Survive Without Google?

We shouldn’t rely on one company to handle our digital life

Published

on

As the US and China saga continues, this is the right time to talk about how the trade war affects the tech world and consumers overall. This massively affected Huawei — from the ban of certain American tech parts all the way to the complete removal of Google services in its phones.

This isn’t meant to be anti-Google as we still rely on Google to do most of our tasks. At the same time, this isn’t pro-Huawei either — even if we love their phones. It’s meant to be a wake up call. A reminder to think about the choices we make when it comes to tech. Whether it be in the phones we use, the apps we enjoy, and the services we rely on.

Take a look at our take on Huawei Mobile Services here.
