However, in his interview, Pete Lau did not reveal the name of the smartphone but it is highly expected it will be none other than OnePlus 6. Regarding the Snapdragon 845 chipset, he said that "there's no other choice" in the interview.

Lau also did not confirm the existence of OnePlus 6T but looking at the current trend of last two years of the company launching the T variants of its Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge spare parts , it is expected that there might be OnePlus 6T also at the end of 2018.

Furthermore, in his interview, Pete Lau also stated the company is open to partnering with US carriers for the sales of its upcoming model. He said, "If the right opportunity and right timing come along, we'll be very happy to experiment". However, he did not specifically confirm whether the OnePlus 6 will be releasing through U.S. carriers this year.

Samsung Galaxy A8 plus will launch on January 20th

Remember how crazy all those conspiracy theorists sounded when they carried on and on about “planned obsolescence,” claiming that Apple was intentionally slowing down older iPhone models to force people to upgrade? Remember how Apple remained completely silent and let everyone go on thinking those people were insane? Well, Apple was effectively lying the entire time, or at least willingly misleading the public, because those people were correct in that Apple has indeed been intentionally slowing down older iPhone models.

Once the company was caught, it finally fessed up to the throttling. According to Apple, however, it slows down old iPhones in order to improve battery life and prevent unwanted shutdowns. Whatever the case, Apple has been beyond deceitful for all this time and the company now faces more than a dozen lawsuits as a result.

While iPhone owners wait for things to unfold on the legal front, the only way for people to restore their blackberry parts performance back to normal is to swap out their old batteries for new ones. Apple has reduced the cost of battery swaps to $29 for the iPhone 6 and later, and well-known third-party repair shop iFixit is now selling $29 DIY kits for older iPhone models as well. But how can you tell if your older iPhone is being slowed down? We’ll show you how easy it is in this post.

Before we explain how you can check to see if your iPhone is being throttled, you might be wondering how Apple is slowing down your iPhone to begin with. Long story short, it’s a function that’s built into iOS. The software has mechanisms that check to see the state of your battery, which inevitably degrades over time as all lithium ion batteries do. Once the battery degrades to a certain point, iOS automatically throttle’s the iPhone’s performance.

Ever since this story first broke, we’ve received a constant stream of emails from people asking how they can check to see whether or not their iPhone has been slowed. Rather than continue to answer all these emails individually, we’ll explain it in this post. It’s actually quite simple, and all you need is one app.

Any app that can read an iPhone’s current clock speed will suffice, and the one we typically recommend is called Lirum Device Info. The full version of the app costs $2.99, but there’s a lite version as well that’s free. Either app will work just fine. Here’s a step-by-step guide:

1. Open the app and you’ll see a screen like this:

2. Tap the hamburger menu icon in the top-right corner and you’ll see a screen like this:

3. Tap “CPU” in the menu.

That’s all you need to do. On the screen that opens up after you tap “CPU,” you’ll be interested in two specific things. The first is labeled “CPU Actual Clock” and the second is labeled “CPU Maximum Clock.” If those two numbers are different, your blackberry replacement parts is being throttled (Actual will always be equal to or lower than Maximum). If they’re the same, your iPhone is operating at peak performance.

LG G7 listed on official website

Well, well, well, what do we have here, LG, are you mentioning a certain yet-to-be-announced flagship on an official website? The unveiling must be near, if LG UK has already listed one "future LG G7" as featuring Qualcomm's Quick Charge 4.0 technology. Wait, what, will the G7 pull a diy waterproof phone case , and launch with Snapdragon 835 instead of 845?

LG G7 listed on official website, may pull a G6, and launch with Snapdragon 835

Not so fast. While the fast charging tech listed for the G7 here is not Quick Charge 4+ that we detailed not long ago, we doubt that LG will launch its seasonal flagship with, say, 835. It's just that most phones still support some equivalent of Quick Charge 3.0, so 4.0, and a Snapdragon 845 to go with it, is an equal possibility, too. Granted, Qualcomm lists 4+ under the Snapdragon 845 specifications roster, but the first how to check original iphone announced with 4+, the Nubia Z17, actually has a Snapdragon 835 inside, so obviously manufacturers can mix and match.

Still, we'll be very curious to gauge what chipset will G7 come with, given that both the 835 and 845 are made with a 10nm process, just that the 845 has the second generation of it. Given that Samsung is rumored to hog all the initial supply of 845s, LG might have been put in a tight space if it wants to launch the G7 concurrently with the Galaxy S9 at MWC next month. What do you think, will LG G7 pull a G6, and come with 2017's finest, instead of Snapdragon 845?

Powermat Joins Wireless Power Consortium

Powermat, the wireless charging company, has become a member of the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC). Powermat has said the move is to contribute its technology to further advance inductive wireless charging capabilities in WPC's Qi wireless charging standard ecosystem. Qi and Powermat have been competing for wireless charging standards but now there seems to be a unification of sorts. The joining of Powermat could help unify the wireless charging standards resulting in a wider adoption of the technology.

Powermat Joins Wireless Power Consortium, Will Help Further Rival Qi Wireless Charging Standard

Qi's major rival is the PMA/ AirFuel standard, which was developed by Powermat. However, in 2017, Apple had signed on Qi wireless charging for its ipad mini 2 screen replacement models giving it a massive lead. In a press statement, Powermat CEO Elad Dubzinski said: "Qi has become the dominant wireless charging standard on the market and the recently launched Apple iPhone lineup is evidence of this success. Powermat will share technology innovation to further unlock wireless charging potential, and will expedite the growth of the wireless charging infrastructure."

With this joining, Powermat has become one of the over 360 companies which support the Qi standard including technology giants like Apple, Samsung, LG Electronics, Delphi among others.

Meanwhile, Menno Treffers, Chairman, WPC said, "By joining WPC, it [Powermat] further unifies the wireless charging ecosystem behind the Qi global standard, which will accelerate wireless charging adoption and make it more convenient for consumers to use wireless charging wherever they go."

Catering to the emerging demand for wireless charging accessories, several companies had been fighting a standards war. The major battle was between AirFuel Alliance, of which Powermat was a part, and Wireless Power Consortium, developers of the Qi wireless charging standard. While computer manufacturers favoured AirFuel, WPC and the Qi standard was supported by mobile makers. Apple meanwhile stayed at the fence for a long time and did not introduce the technology. But, Apple's announcement of adopting the Qi standard for iphone 5s disassembly models in September last year was a big blog to AirFuel and Powermat.

I REALLY Hope Google Makes A Cheaper Pixel Phone In 2018

The Nexus 5 was one of the most loved Android phones of all time. If you spend any time on Reddit, you will know that the handset is still thriving despite its age and lack of support from Google.

And the reason why the Nexus 5 was so popular is simple, it was a great wholesale Samsung Galaxy Note 5 LCD screen with a great price tag. Made by Google in cahoots with LG, the Nexus 5 was all about value for money, software, and getting stuff done with minimal fuss or fanfare.

The hole left by the Nexus 5 was never really filled, though OnePlus has made a valiant attempt to do so with its excellent phones over the years. But as good as the OnePlus 5T is it still misses the one thing that made the Nexus 5 – and all Nexus phones, for that matter – special; updates.

And this got me thinking, especially after reading that there would be three Pixel 3 phones released in 2018, that perhaps it is time for Google to revisit what it was doing with the Nexus 5? In a sea of almost-£1000 phones, a low-priced Google phone would be extremely popular, especially if it borrowed from the Nexus 5’s modus operandi.

Will this happen? Don’t count on it – reports suggest the third Pixel option will be an ultra-premium affair, meaning Google is keen to go after the example set by the iPhone X and charge $1000 for a phone.

This is the wrong approach, however, as I am sure it would have more success with something similar to the Nexus 5, only dressed in Pixel clothing. By using its old model, Google could create an exceptional phone that, when priced around the same as the OnePlus 5T, could do some serious damage to Apple’s dominance of the space.

Google wants to be more like Apple. But competing with the company head-on, and on pricing, I feel, is not the way to go about it. A better approach would be to offer up something that gave users unparalleled value for money, get them locked into the Pixel ecosystem, and then, a year or two later, try and get them upsold to a bigger and more costly model.

This is basically what Apple has done, although over a 10 year period, and it definitely works. Android is not iOS, it’s always been more inclusive, and I think this is something Google should reflect with its product choices in 2018.

By offering a compelling-but-easily-affordable Pixel phone in 2018, Google would increase brand exposure, secure itself millions of new users, and help push its Pixel install base from barely anything at all to something approaching decent.

I am a HUGE fan of the current Pixel phones, but you definitely do not need an even more expensive version. There’s not much else you could do to make the phone better, for instance, unless you’re talking about its physical appearance. And even then, why would you pay more just for some arbitrary design tweaks?

A cheaper, functional handset that undercuts the OnePlus 5T is definitely more compelling. It offers something different, something that is attainable for more people, and it is something that could be used, over a period of 24 months, to lock a user into Pixel phones for good.

The world does not need another £1000 Android Samsung Galaxy Note 5 display , it needs more value for money like the OnePlus 5T. So, come on, Google, sort it out!

Sony will launch theses phone in 2018

Sony has an...interesting...position in the Android Samsung Galaxy Note 4 repair parts space. Sony produced some darn good phones in 2017, such as the Xperia XZ Premium and XZ1, but compared to handsets like the Galaxy S8, Pixel 2, and even the OnePlus 5T, Sony's offerings usually fall flat in one area or another that hold them back from true greatness.

We're just now getting started with 2018, but we've already got a good idea of what to expect from a few of Sony's Xperia handsets later this year. A lot of what we're seeing so far looks to be more of the same, but there are a few interesting bits here and there. Let's take a look.

Sony Xperia XZ2 Premium

As great of a phone as the XZ Premium was, there were more issues than we usually like to see for devices that cost $799 USD. We're expecting Sony to release a sequel this year, and while exact details are still quite sparse, Concept Creator has created a video showing their idea of what they'd like to see in the XZ2 Premium.

The video shows a phone with the slimmest bezels we've ever seen on a Sony phone, front-facing speakers, glass back, and dual cameras. We wouldn't be surprised to see Sony finally get on the dual camera bandwagon, and as great as it'd be to have a flagship Xperia handset with bezels this slim, we aren't all that sure if 2018 will be the year Sony makes this jump.

Sony Xperia XA2/XA2 Ultra

If you're going to be in the market for a small mid-ranger this year, Sony's Xperia XA2 might be worth checking out. The phone is expected to have the same 5-inch display as its predecessor, and it'll be just a bit shorter and wider at 141.6 x 70.4 x 9.6mm.

As for the XA2 Ultra, this will once again be a large phone with a screen that measures in at 6-inches. It'll be slightly shorter than the XA1 Ultra with dimensions of 162.5 x 80.0 x 9.5mm, but it'll retain the same screen resolution of 1920 x 1080. The XA2 Ultra will be powered by the Snapdragon 630 and 4GB of RAM, and you'll have 64GB of storage for all your local files.

Both the XA2 and XA2 Ultra will keep the traditional 16:9 aspect ratio and large top/bottom bezels, but what's interesting is that Sony is ditching the side-mounted fingerprint sensor for one that's on the back. This would mark the first time Sony's had a fingerprint sensor on the back of its phones, and while the implementation of it on the power button was cool, hopefully this will enable customers to finally have a fingerprint sensor on a Sony phone in the U.S.

Sony Xperia L2

The Xperia L2 falls in between the XA2 and XA2 Ultra size-wise with a 5.5-inch screen, and it features the same Snapdragon 630 processor and 4GB RAM. There's no word just yet as to what the resolution of that Samsung Galaxy Note 4 LCD screen replacement , but we wouldn't be surprised to see it stay at 1280 x 720 like it is on the L1.

Android Nougat should be shipping on the L2, but considering Sony's track records for past software updates, we don't imagine it'll take too long before Oreo arrives on it.
