A few days back the OnePlus 6T retail box leaked. It gave us a hint that the smartphone might have a tiny waterdrop-like notch, slim bezels and an in-display fingerprint sensor. Now, ahead of the speculated November launch, renders of the smartphone are out. We still have no information about what’s under the hood, but in the meantime, the renders give us a convincing glance at the device.
Just like the retail box, the renders display a minuscule notch and slim bezels. Also a fingerprint scanner icon suggesting that the scanner will be built into the screen. Looking at the images we can say that the OnePlus 6T will inherit its design from the Oppo [...]

OnePlus has become a major smartphone brand in just a. few years. The OnePlus 6 is the company most popular device yet. And, if the company sticks to it launch pattern, then we will likely see the OnePlus 6T in the fourth quarter of 2018. However, before the smartphone launches, several renders of the device have surfaced which suggest that the smartphone might feature a pop-up selfie camera, much like that seen on the Vivo Nex.

Sony might release the Sony Xperia XZ3 in its IFA 2018 press conference scheduled for 30th August. However, before the launch, the leaks for the smartphone reveal that it might have an all glass or at least a glass back design and no headphone jack. We speculate that this smartphone could feature the Corning Gorilla Glass 6, which launched on 18th July.
There is no doubt that Sony is one of the top camera sensors manufacturers. Many smartphone brands use these sensors for their devices. However, its own smartphone lineup has not been doing so well. While the company had a relatively profitable year in 2017, the profits made were because of the price cuts. Sony does not lack [...]

Microsoft while a primary software and OS developer, has in the past forayed into hardware. And while the company has played with many smartphone ideas, no real “Microsoft Made” hardware for a smartphone has yet been launched. However, according to some internal email leaks from Microsoft, the company may be working on a Microsoft Surface Phone allegedly code-named Andromeda, aimed at being “pocketable”. Microsoft released its Surface line of devices to allow the users to have both portable and stationary workstations. While the Surface Pro and the Surface RT caters to the users who demand a portable workstation, the Surface Studio works more or less like [...]
