OnePlus is ready to release its next smartphone OnePlus Z that falls under the upper mid-range category. It could be a flagship killing phone with high-end features without getting the user ripped. Recently, the OnePlus 8 Pro was released, but it is slightly more expensive than regular OnePlus phones as it is priced at $899. So far the company manages to keep the prices of their smartphones at the lower cap while providing some premium features.

Initially, there were rumors about OnePlus 8 lite, and the name did make some sense. But on April 14, the OnePlus 8 series was introduced without any lite variant of the phone. In late March, phone tipster Max Weinbach tweeted that OnePlus would adopt a new name for its budget phone; the OnePlus Z. In the past, the company sold a lower-cost variant of its flagship phone after branding it as OnePlus X. The OnePlus Z might be the next phone according to the tradition of the company.

Another leak suggests from the Max J on Twitter, OnePlus Z might be launched in July 2020. He also tweeted an image along with the release date leak. It is unclear if that image is coming from OnePlus itself or some graphic designer created this image according to the leaks available so far, but we may expect that the device might debut later in the year. There might be some delay in the launch of the phone, as many other phones got delayed, due to the coronavirus situation.

Earlier leaks suggest that the OnePlus 8 lite will be around $499, but we don't know if this is the price for OnePlus Z as well. The same online store that leaked about its earlier prices, called Giztop has shown off some specs and prices for OnePlus' upcoming phones. There might be a paid difference of $50 to $100 between the OnePlus Z and the OnePlus 8 if the earlier one needs to be a budget-friendly variant. Rumors suggest that the phone will feature a 6.4-inch display, with front-camera on the top. The phone will use Qualcomm's Snapdragon 765G system-on-a-chip. That's a mid-range processor that features a faster clock speed for the chipset's main core, plus more graphics improvements. The phone will have a 4,000mAh battery with wired charging.

If you own a Galaxy Note Edge (unlocked) in Europe, the chances are that you will soon be notified about the much awaited Android M 6.0.1 update. According to Sam Mobile, the 1.4GB update will change your handset's firmware build number to N915FYXXU1DPE1, along with installing the SMR patches for May.

We also have good news for our readers in China because the Samsung Galaxy A9 just started receiving the upgrade to Marshmallow as well. The A9 is the first in Samsung's A-series to receive the update so far. After downloading and installing the file, you can check from settings to see the firmware version changed to A9000ZCU1BPE2 and the base Android version changed to 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

The Blackberry "Priv" may not have been a good name to be honest, but the manufacturer was certainly ahead of many greater and better names in the industry when it rolled out the Marshmallow update to the Priv before many. The latest update released is a humongous 1.8GB file that will upgrade the handset to Marshmallow beta. The STV100-1, STV100-3 and the STV100-4 models in the applicable geographical areas are eligible for the upgrade as of now.

IFA 2015 was held in September this year and the next major event for world's mobile geeks will be the - CES 2016. It will happen in Las Vegas in January, 2016. Many mobile device manufacturers will be showcasing their devices in this expo.

In general Samsung unveils a lot of consumer electronic products during these kind of events, and it will follow the same route during CES 2016 too. The South Korean electronics behemoth has already started sending out invites for the expo. They will organise a press conference at CES 2016 on January 5, 2016 between 14:00 and 14:45 hours. That gives the tech giant good 45 minutes to showcase the products and it is rumoured that some of the devices will be from the Galaxy series.

Right now there is no information on what Samsung has planned to show during the keynote. Although it is highly unlikely that they will unveil S7 in the event, some are speculating the same. The reason behind this is that Samsung usually reveals the S series during this time period. The company might showcase the Galaxy A9, which is supposed to be powered by the Snapdragon 620 chipset, along with some other audio and video devices.


If you are using a Samsung Galaxy Note 4 in Germany, we have good news for you because the Marshmallow update for unlocked versions of the Note 4 has just started to reach users throughout Germany. In case you have already been notified about the update reaching your Note 4, we recommend downloading it via a Wi-Fi connection as the update comes in an expectedly large package of 1.29GB. After you download and install it successfully, your base Android version will change to 6.0.1 Marshmallow.

Considering that India had already started receiving this update about four weeks ago (one week after its international release), some may consider this a bit late, but definitely not by much. If you are in Canada, we have good news for you too. The latest reports suggest that Telus is bringing Marshmallow to the carrier's Note 4 smartphones in Canada on May 16.

You can also check for the update from here: Settings> About device> Software update. If you do find that the update is available to you, just tap on Update now and follow the instructions. Once the process is completed, your Note 4 will become faster with better overall stability and you will be able to enjoy features such as controlling individual app permissions, better battery life (Doze) and a fresh look.

Samsung's latest Galaxy TabPro S was launched officially at CES as a "premium Windows 10 tablet", and it seems that the device will also have the premium mark in the pricing front. As per "All About Samsung", the starting price of Galaxy TabPro S will be at 999 Euro in Germany for the basic Wi-Fi variant that runs on Windows 10 Home. The Windows 10 Pro option will be priced around 1099 Euro, and the LTE variant with Windows 10 Pro can be purchased with 1199 Euro.

That is pretty bizarre pricing, considering the base version of Microsoft's Surface Pro 3 costs around 600 Euro (in fact the new Surface Pro 4 is price starts from 999 Euro). The deciding factor while purchasing this device will depend on the importance of a Super AMOLED display in comparison to the powerful desktop processor (a Core i5 or i7) available in the Surface. SSD is available in both of the devices, so performance won't be affected, but we can say that TabPro S needs to have more competitive pricing. They will also have to compete with the MacBook Air, as Apple's least expensive laptop continues to be a lucrative option owing to its price.

In the end, consumers will finally decide where they want to put their money. So we need to wait and watch how the Galaxy TabPro S will be priced in different markets. It will go on sales in February and it is a nice Windows 10 hybrid for those looking to purchase one.


AT&T has a plan for its customers which technically will allow you to own two Galaxy S7 or S7 Edge smartphones for the price of one. However, as is always the case with carriers in the US and around the world, there's the fine print that you should read and consider carefully before buying into any plan. Read the excerpt from AT&T's own website below to get an idea of how the "free" device scheme will work out for you, if you opt for it.

"You will need to pay tax for the retail price of both devices at sale and low monthly instalment payments will be added to your bill.
You will need to make up to your first 2 instalment payments for the free device before your credits start. However, don't worry, just remain active and in good standing and keep your free device on its instalment agreement and, on your 2nd or 3rd bill, your monthly bill credits will start. When the credits start, you will receive credits for the up to 2 instalments you have already paid."

If a customer deactivates the chosen service before all bill credits are paid out, he/she will have to pay the remaining price of the second Galaxy S7/S7 Edge.

It was only a few days ago that the Galaxy C7 Pro was launched in India and the device is already receiving the latest April security patch from Samsung in the region. This would be the first official update for the device from Samsung in India and it's a welcome one as it patches up the Android security gaps which pops up every month and subsequently needs to be patched in.

The SMALL package of 35.4 MB will reach all eligible smartphones in the region via OTA and the users whohave not been auto-notified to update their phones yet, should get the [prompt any time now. The build number of the firmware is MMB29M.C701FDDU1AQCA and doesn't seem to be bringing anything other than the SMR update to the Galaxy C7 Pro. We don't have any information about the Chinese variant receiving the same yet, but it is definitely a possibility.

The Galaxy tab S3 is one of the premier Android tablets in a world where Android tablets are becoming rarer with each passing year. Most companies have stopped manufacturing premium tablets and even the companies like Samsung that do release a model every now and then, have stopped releasing them outside a few selected regions. However, with the Tab S3 just being released in Russia, fans from other countries can have their hopes up a bit too. Both the LTE and the Wi-Fi only variants have now been listed on the company's website in Russia.

Unfortunately, the price of the tablet in Russia is alarmingly higher than what it costs in the US or the UK. The 32GB Tab S3 costs around $599 officially in the US, while the same variant will cost someone picking it up in Russia, a whopping $965/RUB 54,990! That's $365 more than the US version, but they are identical to each other in every way. I am not sure how much of that is import duty, but whatever the reason may be, if the price difference is that much in your country as well, you are probably better off avoiding it. The Google Pixel will likely be a better deal if you can leave without the S-Pen, provided that's even available in your region of course.

The first time Apple manufacturer Foxconn has started to assemble building iPhone 11 units in a facility in Chennai in India. The company has already making iPhones in the country but this is the first time they are focusing on its top-tier smartphones. Apple has been working in the country since 2017, and according to the reports, were already considering to move the production of its premium models there as well.

India is the third-largest smartphone market due to its population of around 1.73 billion. After Trump administration has banned Chinese smartphone companies and induced some serious business transaction limitations on China, Apple was looking for an alternative place to manufacture its phones. Moving to India will reduce Apple's reliance to some extent. And while Apple tops the premium smartphone market in India, it has only about 1 percent share of the total smartphone marketing in India.

The iPhone prices are getting higher and higher every year that has put the iPhone out of reach. By manufacturing devices in India, Apple would be able to avoid a 20-percent import duty that India has imposed on imported electronics. This might lower to prices of the iPhone to at least 20%. Wistron, which has locally assembled older iPhone SE, iPhone 6s and iPhone 7 models in the past in its Bangalore plant, currently assembles iPhone XR units in India. Apple discontinued the local production of iPhone SE and iPhone 6s last year, the person said. Piyush Goyal, India's Minister of Commerce and Industry, tweeted on Friday that Apple had begun assembling iPhone 11 models in India. Apple did not comment on this story. Apple also has plans to launch its online store in India for a few months and open its first brick-and-mortar store in the next year. So, the plan to open a new store seems to be on track despite the pandemic.

After T-Mobile updated its version of the Samsung Galaxy S5 last week, Verizon has now decided to do the same. After downloading and installing the update, the flagship smartphone from 2014 will be upgraded to firmware version MMB29M.G900VVRU2DPD1 and base Android version 6.0.1 Marshmallow. Famous features like Google Now on Tap, customizable app permissions, Wi-Fi calling, revamped app icons, Ultra-High-Quality Audio, Doze and Android for Work are expected to make their way on to the Galaxy S5 with this update.

We found the Wi-Fi Calling facility to be particularly interesting which allows both incoming and outgoing calls over a Wi-Fi network when mobile networks cannot be reached. It needs to be activated from Settings> Advanced Calling> Activate Advanced Calling. After that, turn on HD Voice and Wi-Fi Calling, which you should be able to see on the same page once you Activate Advanced Calling.

If you have already seen the notification for this update, download and install it now, via a reliable Wi-Fi connection. If you have not seen any such notifications, don't worry as it always takes a while before an OTA update reaches all smartphones within the target area. Feel free to check manually from Settings> About device> Check for updates.

LG flex


LG is pushing the boundaries of flexible OLED Displays technology due to the market's ever-increasing push towards curved display technology. Naturally smartphones are among the first adopters and LG is at the forefront of innovation when it comes to curved technology. After the LG G Flex 2 was unveiled at CES 2015 in became abundantly clear that the Korean manufacturer intends to further develop bendable display technology and is investing in its future.


lg flex


And while the P-OLED panel in the G Flex 2 is mighty impressive, LG will not be stopping there and a new reports hint toward ongoing development of a truly flexible screen and even early units already available. This is achieved by a whole new plastic OLED technology that LG claims is better than current curved screens in every possible way.


The way LG Chem plans to revolutionize bending displays is through a new manufacturing technology. The current generation bendable OLED panels, like the one inside the G Flex 2 feature a thin glass substrate. This allows for a certain level of flexibility, but limits the bending angle to 75mm. Next generation displays will be created using plastic for a more than double decrease in the bending radios, set at about 30mm. What this means in plain terms is that the new panel can be bent in a lot points, which can be as little as 30mm apart.


lg flex


The highly-bendable P-OLED units have 75lm brightness, 60lm/W efficiency, 3,000k color temperature and CRI over 85, which is adequate by today's standards. LG has announced that panels are already available for testing and engineering purposes and can be purchased for $450. Mass production is set for July 2015, which is not that far away.



We reported yesterday that the Galaxy S6 Edge + in Europe has started to receive the October patch and today we have even more good news for our readers in Europe as the S6 Edge has now also started to receive the same. The update will only be available on unlocked versions of the S6 Edge in Europe as you already know, so if you have a contract with a carrier, you will have to wait till a carrier specific version of the October patch arrives on your handset.

The update will fix 68 bugs/susceptibilities found on all Android 6.0.1 powered handsets, along with Samsung's own unique set of fixes for bugs exclusive to the range. The only thing we really know about the unique fixes which Samsung will bring with this update is the fact that it will solve an issue which causes the S6 Edge to hang at times while attempting to switch from one app to another. The rest of it is largely undisclosed in order to stop the hackers and cyber criminals from exploiting those gaps in security on the units that have not yet been updated.

If you live in Europe and you have a Galaxy A5 (2016), you should be notified about a new update anytime now. As you can probably guess already, this is the package that contains the Android SMR package for the month of October, as well as custom fixes from Samsung. The update isn't a particularly large one at just about 20MB, but this is an important patch nevertheless. According to the changelog accompanying the update, this will address a particular critical security hole in the A5's software. Details about this particular vulnerability were not mentioned in the changelog to stop hackers from exploiting it.

If you have not been prompted for the update yet, feel free to check from Settings > About phone > Software update manually. Even if you do not see the update right away, don't worry as it will take a while before all the batches are rolled out and it arrives on every eligible Samsung Galaxy A5 smartphone. As always, the update is only out for unlocked versions of the A5 (2016).

Saikat Kar (tech-enthusiast)

Samsung had just recently rolled out Android M to the Galaxy A7 (2016) in Russia and now it's time for the A5 (2016) to get the same treatment. After you download and install the hefty update, your PDA (build version) should change to A510FXXU2BPF9 and your CSC (sales code) should change to A510FOXY2BPF9. Also, you should now be able to see Android Marshmallow 6.0.1 as you base Android version.

As is the case with all Android Marshmallow updates, features such as Doze mode for a better battery life, Google Now on Tap and the ability to control app permissions individually are all expected to arrive to the A5 with this update. If you are in Russia, you should be receiving a notification prompting you to update your A5 any moment (if you haven't already). But if you want to check for yourself, go to Settings > About device > Software update and give it a try. If you do not see any available updates, do not worry because it will take a bit of time before all devices in Russia receive the package.

n4 lollipop


Google is already rolling-out the Android 5.0 Lollipop for its Nexus line-up devices. Samsung is also working hard on bringing Lollipop to its latest flagships by the end of this year. Here's the latest Update Status for Samsung's Lollipop Update...


International Unlocked Galaxy S5 and Galaxy Note 4 devices will get the update first, it will start Rolling-out by the End this December with some major changes to the TouchWiz UI.


S5 lollipop


Other Variants of the same devices (Dual-SIM, LTE-A.. etc) will get the same update starting from Jan,2015. Carriers versions will be a little bit late due to carrier's testing and approval process which always the reason for delaying updates, so don't expect it very soon.


Keep checking this page and Stay tuned!


Just when everyone was starting to think that the S5 Mini was forgotten and abandoned by Samsung, the device has started to receive Android v6.0.1 Marshmallow. This is good news for S5 Mini owners across Europe and if you are in the region and yet have not been prompted for the OTA update yet, don't worry, you will be soon enough. You can also check manually from Settings > About device > Software update to verify as always.

The particular model number of the S5 Mini currently being upgraded to Marshmallow is SM-G800F and the firmware version is G800FXXU1CQA1. In addition to the OS upgrade, the package also contains the SMR release for the month of January, as expected. We know that a Nougat update is what most handset owners are looking forward to nowadays, but that's never going to happen for the Galaxy S5 Mini, at least not officially anyway. Nevertheless, you should see a lot of positive changes on your device after the update like added features, better security, improvements in stability and a better battery life.

Rejoice, because Samsung has finally decided to roll out Android Nougat for the slightly old Galaxy A5 (2016) and Galaxy A7 (2016) now. The update began rolling out first in Russia but now it's also rolling out in India reportedly. Check out the firmware in our today's list of daily firmware updates. Also visit our firmware section which has hundreds of firmware for every Samsung smartphone and tablet released yet.

This update basically brings the A5 and A7 at par with the S7 series in terms of software because it's the same interface, albeit without a few of the extra bells and whistles that Samsung endowed its 2016 flagship smartphones with. The only thing is that there has been a gap of roughly three weeks since the Russian updates were first released and now; something that makes us wonder when will the other regions be receiving the same treatment.

Android 7.0 Nougat is being rolled out to Indian users of the Galaxy J7 Prime and it brings a new user interface, improved notification settings, improved quick settings, improved multi-window functionalities and Dual Messenger with it. As is the case with all major Android OS version upgrades, this is no small file so make sure your J7 Prime is hooked on to your Wi-Fi before starting the massive 1143.09MB download. Note that the firmware version on the big update should be G610FDDU1BQH9.

If you are in India and you still don't see the update for your smartphone, just wait for day or two and it should show up automatically. Alternatively, you can check from Settings > About device > Download updates manually as always. Given that the Galaxy J7 Prime is a newer smartphone, it is a bit surprising that the Galaxy J7 (2016) was given the preference for the same update.

It might already be December, but Samsung is still in the process of rolling out Google's last month's updates to many of its smartphones in various regions. Even premiere flagship handsets like the Galaxy Note 8 is only getting it now in India and Europe, but there is no way to tell when it will be time for the mid-rangers that did not yet get the November patch.

According to SamMobile, the update doesn't add any improvements to the Note 8's Live Focus feature which was the highlight of the Note 8's November release from Samsung in US and Taiwan. This is not to say that the handsets in Europe and India won't be getting the improvements, because it would be strange and unexplainable if they don't! Samsung will probably soon add the tweaks in the regions where it has not been added yet via either a separate update or the upcoming December patch. The good news is that the November patch fixes the threatening KRACK Wi-Fi vulnerability, 61 Android bugs and 6 Samsung UI related issues for now.

Take it as you may, but Samsung does not believe in giving preference to its more expensive or flagship devices while rolling out monthly security updates. While the last month of the year is well on its way, Samsung has so far only rolled out the month's security patches to the Galaxy A5 (2016) and now, the Galaxy C7.

The update is rolling out in China at the moment according to reports and SamMobile speculates that this would likely mean that the flagship handsets like S8, S8+ and the Note 8 will have to wait till next year, aka mid-January to receive this same update.

Aside from fixing multiple problems plaguing all Android devices, the OTA patch will also take care of ten vulnerabilities unique to Samsung devices only. We would say that the update will make its way to other nations as well, but that is not quite going to be the case, given the fact that the Galaxy C7 was only launched in China.

The December patch had been making rounds on a lot of Samsung handsets recently and the latest names are that of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge. In the US, only Verizon has managed to roll the update out yet, but more carriers should soon follow, so if you own any of the two devices on Sprint or T-Mobile, you are up next!

Outside America, Germany is so far the only known country to get the December update for the unlocked version from Samsung. However, given the nature of these updates, I wouldn't be surprised if it has already started making rounds in a few other European countries as well. Do let us know in the comments if we are missing anything.

The version released for the carrier-locked S7 by Verizon in US has the build version G930VVRU4BQK4, while the S7 Edge has received G935VVRU4BQK4, if you are wondering. On the other hand, the unlocked variant of the S7 in Germany has been updated with firmware version G930FXXS1DQL1 and the S7 Edge with G935FXXS1DQL1.

Whether you have the S8 or the S8 Plus, you should be seeing a prompt to update your device to the latest firmware anytime now. In both South Korea and on major US carriers, the December security update is being rolled out via OTA. As of now, T-Mobile was the first but others like Verizon and Sprint should soon follow.

In case you have the Galaxy S8, firmware version on your device should change to G950USQS2BQL1 post the update. If you have the Galaxy S8+ however, then firmware version G955USQS2BQL1 should be heading your way. Both of these are of course for the US versions. Just in case you are looking for the Korean firmware versions, they are G950NKSU1AQL3 and G955NKSU1AQL3 for the S8 and S8+ respectively. If you can see any updates making their way onto any of the two handsets in some other region, let us know about it in the comments.

AT&T has just released a security update for the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge handsets under contract from the carrier. It's only the December security patch though and not the January patch, in case you are wondering. While it is a bit late, carrier updates usually are, so that's not really a big surprise.

This is the first update from the carrier this year and be sure to download and install it as soon as you are prompted to. The firmware version for the Galaxy S7 should be G930AUCS4BQL1 and G935AUCS4BQL1 for the Galaxy S7 Edge. Both of the updates are around the 50MB mark so downloading them should not take too much time at all. It is to be noted that prior to this update, the S7 and S7 Edge was not protected against the BlueBorne security threat on AT&T, but they should be once you have installed the OTA package.

We are no longer surprised these days to see Samsung's latest flagship handsets being updated after low-mid range handsets form the company, because that's the route which the OEM had followed lately. However, we do not blame the company for this. As far as I can tell, it's simpler, faster and easier to roll out these security updates for the lower-end handsets and Samsung has decided that they will not hold up critical security updates for any of their devices, just for the sake of updating the costlier sets first. If that is truly the case then it's a noble approach and I can respect that. Keep in mind that this is speculation only and not exactly a fact!

As per the latest report by SamMobile, the update is only rolling out in France at the moment and the size of the file is huge! It's a 707MB update so make sure that you are connected to your Wi-Fi before starting the download. This almost makes you wonder what that patch brings alongside the 13 Samsung exclusive fixes and multiple Android OS related vulnerabilities. Interestingly, the source reports that the changelog doesn't mention anything about that at all, strangely enough! Do keep us updated if you see the January security patch making its way on devices outside France as well.

It's late September and the latest flagship handset in Samsung's arsenal has just started to receive this month's security patch on two carriers in the US. Firmware version N60USQS1ARH6 is making its way onto the Galaxy Note 9 on AT&T and Sprint as you read this, so if you own the device on a contract from any of the two carriers, the update should arrive on your smartphone via OTA any minute now. This news comes in mere hours after users on Verizon started to receive the same update on their versions of the Galaxy Note 9.

In case you are wondering when the unlocked version and the other carrier models are going to get their September patch, we may not have an exact date for you. Nonetheless, expect T-Mobile to follow up soon enough. Unfortunately, if you own an unlocked version, no one can really make any estimates as in the US, unlocked variants get security updates pretty late for some reason!

Just a few days ago, Verizon, AT&T and T-Mobile started to upgrade the OS on their respective variants of the Galaxy Note 8 in US with Android 9 Pie, which also had the March security patch embedded in it as well.

Now Samsung has begun to send the April security update for the Note 8 (international variant) in Europe. Although a number of other countries could also be included on the list by the time you get around to reading this, the source names Netherlands, Germany, Italy and Russia to be among the first. Take a look at the firmware version and a few key elements to be expected from the update below.

·        Firmware Version: N950FXXS5DSC5

·        Fixes multiple High-Risk vulnerabilities in the base Android OS, as stated by Google

·        Fixes five Critical vulnerabilities in the base Android OS, as stated by Google

·        Patches fifteen vulnerabilities unique to the Samsung UI, as stated by Samsung
