OnePlus does a good job by keeping their phones updates in a constantly basis, the company has managed to bring updates for both the 2016 released OnePlus 3 and 3T even after a whole year, and is keeping the same form with OnePlus 5.The company took the wraps of today to release a new update for their half 2017 flagship the OnePlus 5.The update comes in the form of 4.5.15 and surprisingly does not bring Oreo for the handset owners, more shockingly it also lacks the Widevine Level 1 certification required for streaming HD content in apps like Netflix and other related services.What the update brings is a couple of fixes and tweaks for optimizing overall user’s experience.

Huawei is the leader in the Chinese smartphone market, and taking into account the big steps it is doing currently, this company won’t yield its positions in the nearest future.This manufacturer has a simple strategy in terms of releasing its flagships.In the first quarter it launches the P-line flagships that are followed by Mate family models, and at the end of a year, it comes in with Honor V line smartphones to capture the younger customers.So it becomes quite difficult to identify which of these models should be considered as an annual flagship.These are the highest-end smartphones priced quite highly.According to some assumptions, this trend will continue in the Huawei P11 that is planned to launch in the first quarter of 2018.

Koolnee as the emerging fresh brand need to mark their territory and make some impact, so they are trying really hard with their fledgling Koolnee K1 model.The phone is quite an interesting one with a big 6.01-inch FHD+ 18:9 display, fancy Lumia ID design, dual rear 16MP+2MP camera, MT6750T processor or 4 GB + 64 GB ROM, but they also announced one more special feature added extra with a software update.Yes we are talking about the Face Unlock feature, because since the new iPhones announced the Face ID tech everybody else went mad about it.The technology behind the Koolnee’s K1’s Face Unlock is probably the same with OnePlus 5T and Samsung S8, which is an facial projection method that relies on the front-camera.But for those preferring the tried and tested fingerprint scanner method it’s of course there too, so the choice is yours.Koolnee K1 is now available for pre-sale order from $149.99 you can find them from the authorized shops like Gearbest and others, the full list with all the extra info about the phone can be found on the official website.

Among the very interesting tech advances that were shown off this year was an in-display fingerprint sensor.It was demoed on a Vivo phone in collaboration with Qualcomm at MWC Shanghai.However, showing off a demo isn’t as hard as actually mass producing a new sensor.Apparently, tech giants like Samsung and Apple were rumoured to be working on such a sensor since mid-2017.But by now we know that getting the trusty fingerprint scanner to disappear has been a tricky affair where Samsung and Apple have failed.Millions of people rely on
