Top News for New 2018 iPhone

2018年07月18日

The company plans to introduce three new iPhone models later this year which may include a considerably larger version of the iPhone X -- the iPhone X Plus, perhaps -- as well as a significantly less expensive version. It's worth noting that price hasn't been a major obstacle for the premium flagship so far; though it's the priciest iPhone ever at $999, £999 or AU$1,579, the iPhone X was the best-selling phone for the first three months of 2018, followed by the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus. Of course, a less expensive version would almost certainly broaden its addressable market. Six plus months after the iPhone X's release, however, the phone has lost a bit of its initial sheen.

In addition to refining the designs and adding in some new features, Apple is likely to deliver the annual enhancements we've come to expect -- new build materials and colors, a bump in processing speeds, higher screen resolution and tweaks to extend battery life.


Meanwhile, the Android world continues to react and respond to the iPhone X. At its I/O event in May, Google showed off the new gesture-based interface at the center of its new Android P operating system. (For what it's worth, Google says it started working on the new navigation before the debut of the iPhone X.) And then there's Samsung's AR emoji and Intelligent Scan features -- lesser versions of the iPhone's Animoji, Memoji and Face ID that don't quite measure up to the originals.


OnePlus, Asus, LG, Huawei and others have announced or are rumored to be working on phones that ape the distinctive notch design that Apple popularized (but with which the Essential Phone was first to market). And Huawei has already iterated on the notch concept with its P20, which gives you the option to toggle it on and off.


With the Android world making strides in camera technology and other fronts, Apple can't rest on its laurels. The trillion dollar question is whether the company can keep its amazing winning streak alive even as the overall market for handsets slows.


Though we're likely two months out from seeing the next iPhone (and don't have any proof as to what its features will be), the rumor mill is already creating a compelling picture of what's to come. We'll continue to update this page with news and leaks as we begin our countdown to the 2018 Apple iPhone X, iPhone XS, iPhone X2, iPhone 11 or whatever the next generation may be called.

OnePlus 6 Red version hand on review

2018年07月11日

The obnoxiously shiny red phone -- I mean that in the best way -- will only be available in North America and Europe for $579 and £519, with 128GB of storage.


We got our hands on the new red model, and can assure you that it's extremely bright. Its glossy finish also gives it a more luxurious, high-end look.

Other OnePlus 6 colors include two black variants (glossy and matte) and a "silk white" version accented by a rose gold trim. In an interview with CNET, OnePlus co-founder Carl Pei said the OnePlus 6 was the company's "boldest design" yet.


Other than the fresh coat of paint, however, the phone remains the same. It has a 6.28-inch OLED display, dual rear-cameras and a Snapdragon 845 chipset. Like the iPhone X, LG G7 and Essential Phone, the OnePlus 6 also features a black notch on the top of its screen.

OnePlus 6 hands on review

2018年07月05日

It boasts an all-glass design, bringing it in line with big-name flagships such as the Samsung Galaxy S9 and iPhone X, a large 6.28-inch display complete with the on-trend notch, dual rear-facing cameras, both fingerprint and face unlock, and up to 256GB of storage.


There are several core improvements over the OnePlus 5T (and OnePlus 5) that it replaces, and while it may not break any new ground in terms of features, the OnePlus 6 brings an attractive package that makes it relevant in 2018.



The OnePlus 6 release date was May 22 for North America, Europe and India, but the handset is now available in a number of additional locations as well.


In the UK the OnePlus 6 is available exclusively on contract from O2, and SIM-free from OnePlus’ own website.


There's still no word yet on when — or even if — it'll ever be made officially available in Australia.

The OnePlus 6 price starts at $529 (£469, Rs 34,999) for the 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage configuration, which is more expensive than the OnePlus 5T, which cost $499 (£449) for the same RAM and storage.


Then you have the 8GB/128GB variant at $579 (£519, Rs 39,999), which again is a $20/£20 increase over the 5T.


The 128GB OnePlus 6 is the only variant available in the limited edition red finish, available from July 10.


Finally, there's the new top-end 8GB/256GB model, which officially takes the title of the most expensive OnePlus smartphone ever. This OnePlus 6 price for this configuration is $629 (£569).


That's still cheaper than the likes of the Galaxy S9, iPhone 8, LG G7 ThinQ and Sony Xperia XZ2, but if you're looking for something more affordable you may want to check out the Honor 10.


If you're in India or China, the 8GB/256GB configuration of the OnePlus 6 is actually a limited-edition Marvel Avengers device, available from May 29 for Rs 44,999.
