The OnePlus 3 is an extremely well made smartphone, especially considering the price and it's about to get even better. Engadget has received confirmation from the head of OnePlus's software department, Brian Yoon, that a beta build for the OnePlus community will be ready by the end of November. What this also means is that the final build of Android 7.0 with the new Oxygen OS on top will be reaching OnePlus 3 smartphones all over the world via OTA by the end of 2016. Considering that 2016 only has one more month left in it, it would be safe to conclude that the final build will land on the OnePlus 3 next month.


OnePlus isn't a company that's known for providing speedy updates, but that seems to have changed thanks to a pretty big decision. They have merged the development teams responsible for maintaining and updating the HydrogenOS in China with their counterpart for the international OxygenOS to create one unified strong software department that will provide their customers with much faster updates. In fact, even the OnePlus 2 will receive the upgrade to Android Nougat, later in 2017.

HTC one m8 GPE Marshmallow update

 

Google has just started rolling-out Marshmallow 6.0 for its Nexus line-up.HTC VP Product Management, Mo Versi, announced that the HTC One M8 Google Play Edition (GPE) is getting Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. The original HTC One M8 users are still waiting for their Marshmallow update with Sense 7 UI.

 

 

The M8 GPE should get the OTA package by the end of this month (October), packing all the the tasty features of Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Stay tuned with us and we will let you know when this update is Rolling-out, don't forget to follow the Official HTC Updates page.


 

If you are like me, a long time Verizon Wireless customer, you will hate to see this, Verizon Wireless has announced that they will be increasing their loyal customers' grandfathered unlimited data plans $20 per month.

 
Verizon has already exerted some force on this band of unlimited data resistance fighters. It stopped offering unlimited data plans in 2011, so it wouldn't renew two-year contracts. These people continued on Verizon on a month-to-month basis, and they also had to pay full price for new phones.


When asked about this increased, here's the response:


"How do you put a cost on reliability?" Company Rep said. "If you charge a little more, but you're providing an excellent service, customers don't mind that. They know you get what you pay for."


Press release:


We continuously evaluate the price of our plans and service, so we're increasing the price of unlimited data plans by $20 per line per month for customers no longer under contract with Verizon Wireless. At the same time, we're also offering customers currently on our unlimited data plan the added benefit of purchasing a new phone using our monthly device payment plan, instead of paying full price up-front for the device. This option is available to all unlimited data plan users once their current contract period ends.


These changes will allow Verizon to continue to maintain the highest standards of network performance for all our customers. And it's worth noting that Verizon does not manage the data connection speeds (often called throttling) for its customers - including those who have kept or plan to keep their unlimited data plans.


Most of our customers (99%) are not on unlimited data plans, and for those who are, many could save money by switching to a Verizon Plan, based on their data usage. For the small number of customers still on unlimited data plans, they will see the increase in their first monthly bill after November 15.

Verizon will not increase the price on any lines with an unlimited data plan that is currently in a two-year contract until the customer completes that contract or enters into a new contract. This increase does not affect government or corporate accounts that have unlimited data.

Index: (C) - Critical severity (H) - High severity (M) - Moderate severity and (L) - Low severity.


The main Samsung Vulnerabilities and Exposures (SVE) addressed in the SMR for April are as follows:


SVE-2016-5393: ACIPC-MSOCKET driver local privilege escalation Vulnerability (Critical)


The vulnerability allowed the attacker to cause a stack overflow and in the process, get privilege escalation. It has been fixed by correcting the code and by restricting access to the file itself. The critical vulnerability affected Marvell chipsets with JBP (4.2) and KK (4.4).


SVE-2016-5534: Non-existent Notification Listener App Vulnerability (High)


The threat affected the Galaxy S6 Edge by permitting all apps with a certain component name to get notified, irrespective of whether the actual application was installed or not. The issue is fixed by removing the component thoroughly from enabled notification listeners.


SVE-2016-5544: Clipboard Vulnerability (Medium)


Any device which was using Samsung clipboard was susceptible to the threat. It permits making of a race condition that allows access to the clipboard user data of Secure World, right from Normal World. It has been fixed through introduction of certain synchronization points which eliminate any chances of creating a race condition.


There are a few others, but they are undisclosed at the moment for security reasons.

Samsung KIES 4

 

A tool that every Samsung user has it installed on his computer, Samsung KIES, the Samsung's smartphone manager suite for PC and Mac, will get a major overhaul update. According to confirmed reports, Samsung is planning on releasing KIES 4 with a completely new design to look similar to the company's TouchWiz  Newlook for its latest Android 5.0 Lollipop update.

 

Samsung Kies 4 is expected to be available for download sometimes during Next month (March). Coincidentally, that's when the company also launches its flagship smartphones, so hopefully the Galaxy S6 will have a new computer buddy to play with.

In terms of functionality, there's no information if Samsung will be adding features. Many users love Kies for its data backup skills and it's likely that the company plays it safe and just apply a refreshing coat of paint to the suite.

The Mobile World Congress is the biggest event of the year when it comes to smartphones, tablets and just about any other mobile consumer products. It's almost upon us as February 27 draws near, but do you know what to expect from the smartphone manufacturers this year at Barcelona? We have a pretty good idea, so here are the most anticipated devices that we could be getting a glimpse of in a few days.


HTC Ocean



If rumors are true, the HTC Ocean will be operated entirely via voice commands, gestures and of course, touch.


LG G6



Although the G6 will probably not be sporting the upcoming Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 flagship chipset, it is expected to sport the world's first 18:9 ratio borderless display with a resolution of 1440 x 2880 pixels.


Blackberry Mercury



TCL Communications are making the handsets for Blackberry nowadays and this is going to be their third handset after the collaboration. The Mercury will sport the trademark Blackberry keyboard and a fingerprint scanner.


Moto G5 and G5 Plus



The cameras on the Moto G4 Plus were simply the best in the mid-range segment and the G5 and G5 Plus are rumoured to sport even better sensors. We will have to wait and see what other improvements Lenovo brings in with the two new handsets.


There are also the Sony Xperia X, the Nokia P1 and the Huawei P10 that's incoming in a few days and we are pretty excited about them too. Which ones are you looking forward to the most? In case you were looking for the Galaxy S8 on this list, we are sorry to inform you that Samsung has confirmed that the S8 will be withheld from the Mobile World Congress this year.

LTE has changed both the way and the quantity in which smartphone users consume data nowadays and recent studies suggest that it will only continue to increase. With the likes of Netflix, Spotify and YouTube being used so frequently by users all over the world, it isn't really a surprise though.


The latest Ericsson Mobility Report indicates that the monthly data consumption rate will hit the 8.9GB mark by 2021 for the average smartphone user. Considering the fact that as of now, the average monthly data consumption for smartphone users is currently 1.4GB, that is a big hike!
According to the report, the huge change will be brought forth by the following factors.


1) A significantly more number of people will start using smartphones.
2) 4G LTE will become available in areas where it was previously unavailable.
3) At least some of the carriers will make 5G speeds available to the consumers by 2020.



As one would expect, North America and Western Europe tops the chart in this report as prime data consumers, followed by Central and Eastern Europe and South America. The types of content which will be most responsible for consuming all that data are predictably, video content and social networking.


Which app hogs the most data in your smartphone?

In about a month's time, one of 2018's biggest consumer electronics events is going to start from January 9 and last till January 12 and it's about time that we took a look at some of the most expected appearances at the show.


Google


Smack dab in the middle of the venue, Google has already booked a huge booth for the show. While a lot of experts are of the opinion that the Pixel 2, Pixel XL, Daydream View, Google Home and the Google Home Mini will be on display here, there's a chance that the search engine giant may also showcase the newly launched PixelBook. It's basically going to be a place to show off "Made by Google" hardware.


Samsung



Aside from a 150-inch Home LED Display, a new series of MicroLED TVs and an updated range of QLED TVs, the Korean tech giant is also expected to launch a teaser trailer of the Galaxy S9 and S9+. Other rumors regarding the company's possible showcases include a few new smartwatches and a foldable smartphone, aka the Galaxy X.


LG (January 8 at 08:00 PT/16:00 GMT)


To keep Samsung on its toes, LG will likely drawing the curtains off its new range of 4K OLED TVs, which will most probably be the B8, C8, G8 and the W8. A new range of mid-range smartphones will also make their appearances at the show, but we are not sure about the LG G7 yet.


Lenovo (January 9 at 11:00 PT/07:00 GMT)


We don't know what else the company is bringing to the table, but a standalone Daydream VR headset is almost surely going to be there.


Sony (January 8 at 17:00 PT/01:00 GMT on January 9)



A new range of Bravia 4K OLED TVs and 4K HDR projectors are on the cards at this invite-only get-together by Sony.


Dell



The Dell XPS 13 2017 Edition is going to make its official debut at the CES 2018 and it looks to be one very beautiful, thin and classy laptop.


If we missed something then it's likely because a lot of events have not been disclosed yet, but do feel free to let us know in the comments about what you are looking forward to the most in next year's Consumer Electronics Show at Las Vegas.

iWatch

 

Tech analyst, John Gruber, has a good reputation when it comes to leaking information about Apple devices. So when he says to expect the long-awaited Apple iWatch to finally see the light of day next month, there is a very good chance that it will actually happen. Apple is holding an event on September 9th that is expected to unveil the Apple iPhone 6. It is possible that the iWatch will also be introduced at that time.

 

By July of last year, Apple had trademarked the iWatch name in a number of countries. The wearable is expected to come out of the box with a number of sensors that will allow it to capture health-related metrics such as heart rate, blood pressure and possibly blood glucose readings. That information can be sent to Apple's Health app, where it will be analyzed. The app will debut on iOS 8.

Windows 9

 

A public "Tech Preview" of the next version of Windows, Windows 9 codenamed "Threshold", could apparently land as soon as next month, according to certain unnamed sources. This version will almost certainly end up being called Windows 9 when it's going to be released in spring 2015.

 

Windows 9 has recently been rumored to introduce a few interesting new features, most of which are actually fixes to the niggles many have had with Windows 8 and its radical two-faced approach to computing. Long story short: using Windows with a mouse and keyboard is about to become a lot less of a hassle.

 

Windows 9

 

So, the Modern (aka Metro) apps are due to get windowing support, the elusive Charms bar will be gone forever, there will be a new "mini" Start Menu, and Microsoft may also bake in virtual desktops. Additionally, we may see Cortana make an appearance outside of the confines of Windows Phone.

Nvidia lollipop

 

Nvidia has just published a video on YouTube in which it teases the upcoming Lollipop update for Nvidia's Shield tablet. The roll-out time frame of "November" is mentioned quite a few times, so we're assuming Nvidia's engineers are pretty sure they'll be able to pull it off. The company still confirms that the update is coming this Month.

 

The video, which you can see in full below, also quickly skims through a couple of Nvidia-specific additions for the Shield tablet. The Dabbler app and the Shield Hub will both be updated, with the new versions landing alongside the Lollipop update.

Nexus 6

 

The Wall Street Journal today is reporting that Google will launch a 5.9-inch Nexus smartphone sometime later this month. Of course, this is what we've been hearing for quite a while now, so the report is far from being surprising but it's still good to see more reliable sources confirming the arrival of a new Nexus.

 

As mentioned many times before, the upcoming device codenamed Shamu is manufactured by Motorola, and will be the most advanced Nexus handset yet.

 

Its 5.9-inch display will have 1440 x 2560 pixels, while other features should include a quad-core Snapdragon 805 processor, 3 GB RAM, 12 MP rear camera, and a 3200 mAh battery.

Nexus 9

 

The Wi-Fi only variant of the HTC Nexus 9 is already available on stores. Today, T-Mobile announced that it will begin offering the LTE-variant of the HTC Nexus 9 in Early December in all 3 colors (Black, White and Sand). The 64-bit Tegra K1-packing slate will be available with $0 down and 24 monthly payments of $24.99.

 

Outright pricing of the LTE Nexus 9 is not mentioned, though a quick calculation of the monthly installments reveals that the Big Magenta will be asking $600 for the tablet. The 4G device is solely available with 32GB of built-in memory.

 

Nexus 9

 

The LTE Nexus 9 will be available through T-Mobile Underground. This particular section of the carrier's online store is reserved for products, which are available in limited quantities.

Nexus 5 2015

 

Rumors are spreading around an upcoming LG Nexus 5 (2015) that should arrive this year. We got the full detailed specs list along with some live photos of this device.

 

The LG Nexus 5 (2015) alleged live photo above gives us a hint of how the device will look like upon the official release which will be on September 29th, according to a South Korean media outlet which cited a credible source.

 

Nexus 5 2015

 

As far as the 2015 LG Nexus 5 spec and features goes, according to some Chinese sources, it will be packing Snapdragon 808 chipset, 5.2-inch 2560 × 1440 display, 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM, 13MP camera with the same OIS tech like the one included inside the LG G4 along with a fingerprint sensor, USB Type-C connector and running Android 6.0 Marshmallow out-of-the-box.

 

Nexus 5 2015 specs

 

There was, however, no word on the release date of the Nexus device being manufactured by Huawei. If you aren't already aware, two Nexus handsets are expected this year the one from LG is said to sport a 5.2" screen, while that from Huawei is said to be a 5.7" phablet.

LG G flex 2

 

The LG G Flex 2, which was unveiled at the CES 2015, and launched in South Korea late last month, is heading to its first international market Singapore.

It comes in 2GB/32GB and 3GB/64GB variants, packs in a 3,000 mAh battery, and runs Android 5.0.1 Lollipop. In terms of camera, the G Flex 2 features a 2.1 MP front-facing unit, and 13 MP rear shooter.

Xperia Z3


Sony has been gathering a lot of attention in the past few days with a lot of rumors and speculations about its CES 2015 announcements. It appears that the tech giant has opted to put off major announcements in the mobile division and save the heat for MVC in a few months. This of course means that there is no word yet on a future Xperia Z4 device lineup, which has been a persistent rumor for quite some time now.

 

Sony users do, however have a lot to be happy about after the presentation and especially owners of devices from the Xperia Z family. The Japanese company has not forgotten its promise to bring Android 5.0 Lollipop to its entire Xperia Z3 lineup and according to Michael Fasulo, the company's CEO, first builds for Xperia Z3 devices can be expected as early as next month.

The Galaxy Note 4 and the Galaxy Note Edge have started to receive security updates for the month of November just recently. If you are wondering why the two devices did not get the update earlier, the answer is that they are both old devices now and have therefore slipped way down the ladder of priority. Even though these phones were flagships from Samsung in 2014, the two year expiry date is already over.


The security patch is around 60 MB in size and alongside the Android SMR for November, it also brings improvements in domestic data roaming on the two smartphones. After you have downloaded and installed the small update on your device, the firmware version should change to N910TUVS2EPK2 on the Note 4 and to N915TUVS2DPK2 on the Note Edge. If you have any of the two handsets on T-Mobile, you should be prompted to update your device anytime now. Don't be confused by T-Mobile's official page where the last update rollout date for these two phones from the carrier is still being shown as October 24. It's just that they haven't updated that page yet.

Although the Galaxy Note 5 on T-Mobile is running on the latest version of the Android Nougat OS upgrade offered by Samsung yet, strangely enough, it did not receive the April security update for some reason. However, that should no longer be an issue because T-Mobile has already started to roll out the May security Update for its users across the US.


The firmware version of the update is N920TUVU4EQE1 and it comes in at a decent size of 209.56 MB. Even though it's not a particularly big file, use your Wi-Fi if you have it (you better get one soon if you don't!). Check out the improvements it brings to the Galaxy Note 5 below and in the screenshot.

It took a while for Samsung to start sending Android 7.0 Nougat out to the Galaxy Tab A 10.1 (2016), but now that it's finally rolling out to the tablet from last year, the OEM has decided to also bless it with the latest Android SMR update. Do you own the version with the S-Pen or the standard variant? It doesn't matter really because the same update is making its way towards both the devices simultaneously.


If you own the standard Galaxy Tab A without the S Pen, you should see firmware version T580XXU2BQE4 arrive on your tablet and provided you paid a bit extra to get the S Pen variant, you will be receiving your firmware in version P580KXU1BQE6. All the essential and latest bug fixes from Google will be included in the update, along with some of Samsung's own. We are not sure how much of a performance improvement this will actually bring to your device, given it's only a minor monthly update, but if you experience anything positive or negative, do let us know in the comments.

The month might almost be over, but it isn't over just yet. So, in a way Samsung is on time with the May security update for the Note 4 and Note Edge. As per the source, the update is only available to European users right now, but it's only a matter of time (which hopefully won't be too long) before the same goes live in all regions. This news concerns only the unlocked versions, so if you have one of these two handsets on a carrier contract, you will have to check with your carrier for details about the SMR.


The Galaxy Note 4 is being upgraded to firmware version N910FXXU1DQE2 and the curved Note Edge will be receiving its update with firmware version N915FYXXS1DQE1. There isn't much to say about the May security update than the fact that it addresses 54 Android vulnerabilities and bugs this month. Samsung has bundled in its own set of 11 fixes with the OTA update as well. Let us know if you see anything new.

It might already be July but Samsung is still in the process of rolling out last month's security update to many of its lower end smartphones. As per the latest report, the June security update is currently being rolled out to the Galaxy Xcover 4 in the European Region via OTA. Although you probably know already, it's worth mentioning that this includes the original Android June SMR update from Google which contains fixes and patches for 96 bugs and loopholes, in addition to the Galaxy patch by Samsung which contains 23 exclusive patches for all Galaxy branded smartphones.


If you are in the European region, you should see firmware version G390FXXU1AQF8 landing on your Galaxy Xcover 4 anytime now. If you are not in Europe however, we are not sure when you are going to get the update as the handset was released exclusively in that region as far as I know. In case you already have the update on your phone, let us know in the comments about it.

If you happen to own a Galaxy Note 8 in the US without contract, we have good news for you because as per a report by PhoneArena, the latest flagship handset from Samsung just started receiving the November security update via OTA in the United States. The update fixes 6 of Samsung's own bugs and vulnerabilities in the User Interface, along with 61 problems common to all Android OS powered smartphones and tablets. The fix for the KRACK Wi-Fi security threat is also included.


The Verizon versions of the Galaxy Note 8 also started receiving an OTA update, but as it turns out, it does not contain the November security patch, but only the update for October; talk about being late! Even the Verizon update includes the KRACK patch though. What the this update from Verizon does have however, are modifications and improvements on the camera app. The details of which, you can check out below.
