OxygenOS 5.0.4 for OnePlus 3/3T brings July security patch and camera improvements

Image

Unfortunately, the changelog mentions only front camera image quality optimization, so still no love for the main camera. Speaking of, OnePlus has finally fixed a long-lasting issue with third-party camera apps that crashed after switching to manual ISO mode.Along with the camera fixes, the update takes care of some annoying bugs related to third-party apps. Parallel WhatsApp crash bug is now squashed while the front camera zoom-in problem with Snapchat has been resolved.Scrolling down the post in the official OnePlus forum, staff members point out that it shows June security patch in the menus.

Rumor: Galaxy Watch sizes and colors possibly revealed

Image
Samsung is expected to unveil a new smartwatch on August 9 alongside the Galaxy Note 9. It was previously referred to as the Gear S4 but we now know that Samsung is going to launch it as the Galaxy Watch. Even though it's going to carry the Galaxy branding, we have exclusively confirmed that the new smartwatch will be running Tizen 4.0 out of the box. We have now heard some rumors about the Galaxy Watch sizes and colors.Galaxy Watch sizes and colorsA couple of FCC listings for the Galaxy Watch have already revealed that the new smartwatch will be available in two different display sizes. The FCC has certified two models – SM-R800 and SM-R810 – with 1.3-inch and 1.2-inch displays respectively.Word on the street is that there will indeed be a noticeable size difference between the two Galaxy Watch models. The model with the 1.3-inch display will measure 46mm which is the same as the Gear S3. The other model will measure 42mm which is a hair shorter than the 43mm Gear Sport.Larger wa…

New Samsung A series may arrive as the A10, A30, A50, A70 and A90

Image
It appears that Samsung might change what it calls it Galaxy A premium mid-range series next year. The company has filed for new trademarks in South Korea and the European Union which suggest that the new Galaxy A series models may be called the Galaxy A10, A30, A50, A70 and the A90.The new device names provide a hint of where Samsung's nomenclature might be going in the future. The Galaxy Note 9 and Galaxy S9 mark the end of single-digit device names so Samsung might perhaps introduce a new way of numbering its devices once its first flagship of 2019 – the Galaxy S10 – is launched.Samsung Galaxy A10, A30, A50, A70 and A90The company has filed trademarks for the Samsung A10, A30, A50, A70 and A90 monikers in addition to Samsung E-FOTA in the European Union. The aforementioned names will be used for "Smartphones; mobile telephones; tablet computers," according to the filing documents.

However, the FCC has to perform a 180-day review of the merger before it can decide whether the $26 billion merger will take place or not.Now through August 27, you can submit petitions or comments on why you think the T-Mobile – Sprint poses a concern or benefit. After this, either party of the merger or a supporter can submit a rebuttal to the petitions until September 17. The period will last 180 days is more of a guideline as the FCC is not required to make any decision by a specific time.Whether the merger would be in the consumer's interest or not will be up to the FCC. T-Mobile and Sprint are the United States #3 and #4 carriers and if they were to merge, it would reduce the number of mobile operators to three.Some argue this gives less choice to consumers while others argue that with MVNO networks like Fi, Simple, TracFone, Cricket, and Xfinity Mobile,…

Google Testing Quick Reply Support In Chrome For Android

Image
Google Chrome on Android may soon offer the option to reply to notifications directly from the status bar. The feature was noted in a the Chromium Gerrit by XDA-Developers and is basically an extension of the already available Quick Reply feature on Android. Quick Reply came about with the introduction of Android 7.0 (Nougat) and acts as an easy way for Android device owners to respond to notifications without having to open an app.Generally speaking, this is more commonly used by messaging apps allowing the user to tap on a message notification, type the reply and send it. However, this new Chromium Gerrit suggests the feature could soon be active for notifications received through Chrome, and potentially for any notification. For example, websites are already able to send users Android notifications and this feature would then allow those users to directly reply to that notification – again without having to go through the many clicks that might be involved otherwise. At present, it…
