While the AirPods were mocked when they were first launched, they have since gone on to become a pretty hot commodity, so much so that many companies have since adopted a similar design and concept. So much so that the US Customs and Border Protection tweeted that they had seized “counterfeit Apple AirPods” from Hong Kong.
Companies like OnePlus have access to your email addresses as you might have signed up to join their forums or use their services. It is generally expected that these email addresses are kept private and aren’t shared with other customers, but it looks like OnePlus has made a slight mistake on that front.
When OnePlus announced their latest smartphone, the OnePlus Nord, the company stated that the phone will be initially available in India and Europe. So what about those living in the US or the North American market? It seems odd that the company would be ignoring such a huge market right out of the gate.
Leading up to the OnePlus Nord announcement, the company also teased that they would be launching a pair of true wireless earbuds. According to the company’s teaser, they hinted that the earbuds would be priced very affordably, and sure enough it looks like they were right on the money.
The price of OnePlus handsets have been increasing over the years, and the good news for those who have felt that the company’s phones have gotten a bit too expensive, then you’ll be pleased to learn that OnePlus has since officially announced their latest smartphone that comes in the form of the mid-range OnePlus Nord.
The market is starting to become flooded with true wireless earbuds. While many made fun of Apple when they launched the AirPods, it quickly became clear that this was a new market segment to consider. OnePlus is set to launch their own pair of wireless earbuds and they are teasing its price that could put the AirPods to shame.
The thing about Android phones is that a lot of them tend to use the same hardware. To better differentiate themselves, handset makers tend to introduce their own software to their phones. This may or may not be a good thing, depending on how you use your phone, but for OnePlus, it seems that they’ll be reverting back to Google.
Last week, OnePlus announced that their next smartphone, the OnePlus Nord, would be announced on the 21st of July in a special augmented reality event. While we have heard and seen various leaks in the past, it seems that the phone’s design and some of its specs have been revealed during an interview with YouTuber MKBHD.
According to the rumors, OnePlus was said to be working on a new mid-range smartphone. It turns out the rumors were right and according to an announcement by OnePlus, they will be officially revealing the handset, known as the OnePlus Nord, on the 21st of July through augmented reality.
OnePlus CEO Pete Lau recently revealed that the company would be returning to the budget phone market. While Lau did not dive into specifics, it was largely believed that this could take the form of the OnePlus Z, the successor to the OnePlus X which could also be priced more affordably than the OnePlus 8.
Right now, two of the hottest flagship Android phones in the market right now would probably have to be the OnePlus 8 Pro and the Samsung Galaxy S20 Ultra. This means that some of you are probably torn between either device, and thanks to a video uploaded onto YouTube by PhoneBuff, hopefully it can help you arrive at a decision.
There are various ways gamers can improve themselves in the games they play. It could be hardware where having a more responsive keyboard or mouse can help, better audio, a faster computer, and so on. Frame rates have also been found to help improve your gaming experience, and soon OnePlus 8 owners might have an advantage.
The other day we reported that it was discovered one of the features of the OnePlus 8 Pro’s camera is the ability for it to gain “X-ray vision” through one of the filters. This basically utilized the camera’s infrared sensors to create an effect, in which one of the side-effects was that it could see through very thin pieces of plastic and clothing.
We’re not sure if this was an intended feature, but it seems that users of the OnePlus 8 Pro are discovering that their smartphone camera has pseudo X-ray vision capabilities. Yup, if you own the handset, using the camera’s “Photochrom” color filter mode will actually allow you to see through certain objects.
