OnePlus 6 leak reveals more of its glass-centric design

  OnePlus 6 leak reveals more of its glass-centric design OnePlus has been dribbling out details of its next phone for weeks on end, but one retailer may have revealed more than OnePlus was ready to show. WinFuture spotted an Amazon Germany listing (since removed) for the OnePlus 6 that included full images of the device -- no murky photos or teases here. True to expectations, the handset is dominated by its 6.3-inch display (complete with notch) at the front, and a glass back on at least the "mirror black" model. There's also a "midnight black" variant that appears to have a matte finish, although it's not certain this means a switch to aluminum.

It’ s a notched Nokia phone not made by Nokia , but HMD Global in China instead. Its most recognizable feature is a notched 5.8-inch FHD+ (2280 x 1080) display with 19:9 aspect ratio with a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protective layer.

The leaked press renders of the phone suggest a notch above the display, which would make it the first Nokia phone to wear a notch . Additionally, there are very thin bezels on the sides and a narrow chin with an awkwardly placed Nokia branding at the bottom right.

HMD Global just announced a new Nokia-branded phone bound for China under the X-series moniker. Its most recognizable feature is a notched 5.8-inch FHD+ (2280 x 1080) display with 19:9 aspect ratio with a Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protective layer. Overall, the front of a Nokia X6 will be 95 percent screen with metal frames that come in blue, black, and silver variants.

The Nokia X6 is powered by a Snapdragon 636 SoC (system-on-chip), 4GB of RAM, and 32 or 64GB of internal storage. A higher-end model exists with 6GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. But don’t worry, all models receive microSD card slots and back-mounted fingerprint sensors. USB-C is the only port on the X6, capable of delivering Quick Charge 3.0, or 50 percent charge in 30 minutes.

Lenovo teases what might be the first true ‘all screen’ phone

Cheng also says the Z5 will include four technological breakthroughs including 18 patented technologies. Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait for the details, particularly around how Lenovo will handle a presumed front-facing camera.

HMD Global is set to unveil first notch display smartphone Nokia X 6 . There has been much hype around the introduction of a smartphone with a notch ever since the launch of their phones last month on April 4 in New Delhi.

The camera setup is intriguing since there’s a front-facing 16-megapixel sensor with f/2.0 aperture (face unlock included). On the back, there’s another f/2.0 16MP sensor, paired with a smaller 5-megapixel monochrome sensor with f/2.2 lens. All the cameras have the usual suite of phone AI trickery, like background blur and face recognition.

The Nokia X6’s makers are promising Android P sometime after launch, so the X6 will debut with the current stable Android 8.1 Oreo build.

The notched phone will debut on May 21st in China, starting at 1,299 yuan ($204) for the entry-level 4GB / 32GB model. The midrange 4GB / 64GB version will go for 1,449 yuan ($236), while the top-tier Nokia X6 (6GB / 64GB) will retail for 1,699 yuan ($266).

No availability has been announced outside of China.

iOS will soon disable USB connection if left locked for a week .
In a move seemingly designed specifically to frustrate law enforcement, Apple is adding a security feature to iOS that totally disables data being sent over USB if the device isn't unlocked for a period of 7 days.  The feature, called USB Restricted Mode, was first noticed by Elcomsoft researchers looking through the iOS 11.4 code. It disables USB data (it will still charge) if the phone is left locked for a week, re-enabling it if it's unlocked normally.
