Last year Google released two nexus devices at the same time - Nexus 5S made by LG and Nexus 6P made by Huawei. It seems this type of launch has become quite a convention and Google is supposed to do it this year too.
Yesterday, a rumor about about the new Nexus devices surfaced. As per the rumor, HTC is will be the manufacturer of the two new Nexus devices to be released in the later part of 2016. Right not much is known about the two devices. But, one will feature a 5-inch screen, and the other will have a 5.5-inch display. Today, ROM developer @LlabTooFeR unveiled nuggets of new info about the two smartphones in a tweet .
The developer posed that the codename for the 5-inch Nexus phone is T50 and for the 5.5-inch model codename is the T55. It is quite evident that the codenames are curated from the screen size of the devices. Going by the history of correct tips released by the developer, this tweet also seems reliable.
The Nexus One, the very first Nexus device was built by HTC back in 2010. The Taiwanese company will also be manufacturing the Nexus 9 tablet. Apparently Huawei was also trying to create an entry for itself in the run for building this year's Nexus devices, but finally HTC won the deal.
According to the China Consumers Association, many of the iPhone models are experiencing a strange issue where the phones are switching off unexpectedly. They are claiming that the affected models so far include the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, iPhone 6s and the iPhone 6s Plus. In fact, this isn't even a localised incident as consumers all over the world have reported similar problems with their iPhones in the last few weeks. Apple had in fact, issued a notice globally on November 20, while addressing the problem.
"Apple has determined that a very small number of iPhone 6s devices may unexpectedly shut down. This is not a safety issue and only affects devices within a limited serial number range that were manufactured between September and October 2015.
If you have experienced this issue, please use the serial number checker below to see if your iPhone 6s is eligible for a battery replacement, free of charge."
However, the Chinese authorities have declared that the battery problem extends beyond just the iPhone 6s and Apple has failed to "meet basic consumer needs for normal wireless communication." Some of the Chinese users are even reporting that changing the battery as instructed by Apple in their notice, doesn't solve the unexpected shutdown problem either.
It is evident that the problem is serious enough for the authorities to take notice of the matter, but Apple has not yet replied to these reports or notices till date.
