The OnePlus 8T 5G hype train has left the station ahead of October 14 launch

UPDATE: In addition to the OnePlus 8T 5G name, the company that never likes to settle… for boring and conventional marketing has officially confirmed the handset’s October 14 launch date. The global announcement event will start at 10 AM EDT under the cryptic “Ultra Stops at Nothing” tagline.

Of course, things may not remain cryptic for long, as we fully expect OnePlus to make plenty of exciting announcements in anticipation of the actual October 14 announcement. Stay tuned and check out our original post below for the time being.

Not that there was ever any serious doubt, but rumors of a T-series sequel to the OnePlus 8 duo released earlier this year and 2019’s 7T and 7T Pro first emerged back in June, with several major leaks revealing pretty much everything you need to know about th...

CDC pulls its bombshell COVID-19 guidance from the web

  • New CDC guidelines that appeared on the agency’s website just a few days ago, which refined the agency’s guidance around how the coronavirus spreads, were abruptly pulled from the agency’s site on Monday.
  • The CDC said it was due to the new coronavirus guidance being posted as a draft in error.
  • Critics immediately pounced, arguing that this was but the latest instance of perceived political influence hampering the CDC’s communications around the coronavirus.

Just a few days ago, CDC director Dr. Robert Redfield insisted to US senators that his agency is putting out reliable, scientifically accurate data and guidance about the novel coronavirus that’s free of any political bent one way or the other. That the agency’s “scientific integrity … has not been compromised and it w...

Tipster posts rumored names of the 5G Apple iPhone 12 models

For most of the summer, when we discussed the upcoming 5G Apple iPhone models, we referred to them as the 5.4-inch iPhone 12, the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Max, the 6.1-inch iPhone 12 Pro, and the 6.7-inch iPhone 12 Pro Max. This seemed to make sense since there would be two standard iPhone models and two “Pro” models providing some sort of balance. However, Twitter tipster “L0vetodream” disseminated a tweet today in which he claims to give us the name of each model in the upcoming iPhone 12 series. Keep in mind that these names come from the tipster’s source(s) so take this information with the proverbial grain of salt. 

The 5.4-inch iPhone might be called the iPhone 12 mini

The tipster says to expect the 5.4-inch model to be named the iPhone 12 mini. The 6...

T-Mobile goes for Verizon and AT&T’s jugular with yet another crazy good deal

Just when we thought T-Mobile couldn’t possibly get any more aggressive in its efforts to steal customers away from the competition and stay ahead of AT&T while continuing to inch closer to Verizon, the “Un-carrier” has launched yet another irresistible promotion.

This one is aimed specifically at convincing Verizon and AT&T subscribers to jump ship by offering them a $250 incentive with (almost) no strings attached. Like virtually all BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) deals recently available at any of the country’s top mobile network operators, this requires both a number port-in and a new service line activation but not much else.
Kicked off right before the weekend started with little to no fanfare, the incredibly attractive special offer doesn’t have an expiration date listed among its ...

Apple to use mini-LED displays on up to 40% of iPads next year

The Apple Watch has used OLED since its inception and soon every new iPhone model will take advantage of the technology too. But reports suggest Apple is already looking towards the next generation of displays.

There’s more competition in the world of mini-LED

A new research note by analyst Ming-Chi Kuo (via MacRumors) claims Apple has recently decided to accelerate its adoption of mini-LED display technology on the iPad and MacBook product lines. The move comes amid increased competition among mini-LED display chip suppliers. Kuo says that Epistar was expected to be the exclusive supplier of mini-LED display chips for Apple next year.

However, rival Sanan Optoelectronics has experienced better and faster than expected development in recent months and has now secured an agreement with ...
