Image
Rumors of a new foldable iPhone are starting to gain more attention. On Monday , we saw Jon Prosser talk about the possibility of two foldable iPhone designs that were being tested to see which device will become Apple’s first foldable phone, and it seems that the test results are in. According to the Taiwanese website Economic Daily News, Apple had been testing two foldable iPhone designs in a Foxconn factory in Shenzhen, China, with positive results in both designs. The tests were conducted to see if the hinge system for the two devices would hold up against everyday use, and it seems that both have passed. The first foldable iPhone to be tested was a dual-screen model, which has been appearing in rumors since June 2020, when Jon Prosser tweeted that this prototype has two separate display panels on a hinge, even though the two separate panels would seem fairly continuous and seamless when extended. We have seen Apple receiving patents for devices that fall under this description,

Microsoft reveals SolarWinds hackers gained access to its source code

Microsoft recently revealed that it found found “malicious binaries” on its systems in the wake of the massive SolarWinds hack which targeted products such as Azure, but the company assured that no user data was compromised. However, it appears that the hackers went deeper into Microsoft’s systems than previously disclosed by the company. In an official blog post , the software giant has today divulged that the group behind the massive cybersecurity incident also got access to Microsoft source code. Viewing source code isn’t tied to elevation of risk: Microsoft. “We detected unusual activity with a small number of internal accounts and upon review, we discovered one account had been used to view source code in a number of source code repositories,”  the company said. Microsoft, however, assured that these accounts did not have the required privilege to be able to make changes to the source code , something that would have been catastrophic had it actually happened. “These acco

HUAWEI is still months away from the launch of its next camera-centric flagships – the HUAWEI P50 family. However, tiny bits of information have already started to trickle. Now, prolific leakster Steve. H aka @OnLeaks has shared what he claims to be a render of the HUAWEI P50 Pro. At first glance, it appears that the Chinese smartphone maker is sticking with the design formula of the P40 series, and we’re not complaining either. The waterfall display is here to stay The leaked HUAWEI P50 Pro render shows a dramatically curved display – something that the company markets as a waterfall display. The bezels are stunningly thin on all sides, and there appears to be a metallic frame running around the edges. However, a couple of things have changed. The first one is the positioning of the selfie camera and the absence of a few sensors. The leakster mentions that the HUAWEI P40 Pro will feature a 6.6-inch display , however, details about its resolution, refresh rate, or other attrib

OnePlus Band leak gives us our first look at its ‘not so original’ design

Well, look what do we have here! Merely a day after rumors emerged that OnePlus might have a fitness band in the pipeline , another major leak has surfaced online. And this one claims to give us our first look at the OnePlus Band . The ever-reliable tipster Mukul Sharma (aka @stufflistings ) has shared renders of the upcoming fitness band from OnePlus, and it looks quite appealing. I dig that sweet dual-tone finish The leaked renders show us the upcoming OnePlus wearable in three color options, all of which appear to rock a dual-tone finish. The first one has a black band with a light grey underside, and on the other one, you also get a light grey trim with an appealing orange finish on the inner side. But the best one, in my opinion, is the navy blue band with a contrasting lighter shade on the inner side.  Exclusive: This is the OnePlus Band. #OnePlus #OnePlusBand pic.twitter.com/JxYoSMxxTn — Mukul Sharma (@stufflistings) December 31, 2020 The black bezels surrounding

120Hz LTPO display will remain limited to iPhone 13 ‘Pro’ models: Report

One of the signature features of recent flagship devices has been high refresh rate displays. Apple was rumored to bring 120Hz to iPhone 12 but at the end of the day, that didn’t happen. Now, a report claims that iPhone 13 will get the 120Hz refresh rate, but there is a twist. It sheds light on the display tech of the supposed ‘Pro’ variants. It goes on to say that the 120Hz LTPO display will remain limited to the Pro models in the iPhone 13 series. As per a Korean  report , Apple is working on bringing a 120Hz refresh rate to the OLED displays of the top 2 models of its next iPhone lineup. It is likely referring to the iPhone 13 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro Max – both ‘Pro’ variants. Moreover, it goes on to say that Samsung and LG will be the supplier for its displays. The latter is said to be housed on all the models except the iPhone 13 Pro Max. The new report clashes with the previous report that claimed all the models will have high refresh rate displays. Further, the base variants(iPh

AirPods Max users report sweat build-up after extended usage issue

Apple launched its first-ever over-the-ear wireless headphones at a surprising price point of $549 recently. Early reviews have been positive for the device. However, AirPods Max users are now reporting condensation build-up inside the headphones. As per a user, water collected inside their AirPods Max ear cups after using the device for an extended period. Donald Filimon from Tampa, Florida, raised his concerns  on Twitter . “AirPods Max form condensation after extended use,” warned Filimon. “Warm ears and roughly 12 hours of consistent use mostly. Literally just sitting at my desk listening to music. Cold room as well which added to this.” On the other hand, Filimon  mentioned the problem on  Reddit  as well , said it’s worrisome because “the water gets inside the drivers and has caused ear detection problems.” “Have experienced this too,” replied Reddit user koocachoo. “Not to this extent, but have  seen some condensation when I take the ear cup off .” Condensation is not an uncom
