OnePlus may be launching more than one device this year. Google now makes it a breeze to locate your devices. All while LG continues to tease the G4.
Bloomberg paid a visit to the OnePlus HQ recently, and what they found out is making the whole industry go nuts. The startup is racing to the top and is set to make 2015 an even better year. Bloomberg reports OnePlus is taking its name seriously this time, with plans of releasing more than one smartphone.
The report states the OnePlus Two is set to launch during the 3rd quarter, while a second cheaper smartphone is said to release by the end of the year.
Opinion: Let’s just hope this time around the they can handle these launches in a smoother fashion. We sure have to give them props, though. OnePlus is doing something amazing here, and though they have stumbled here and there, such are the risks of making such a company grow.
Google continues to integrate all its services, with the sole purpose of a seamless experience across all platforms and form factors. Today’s addition won’t be used often (hopefully), but it will be a life saver the few times you do take advantage of it.
The Search Giant is making it possible to… well, search your phone. Literally. You can just go to Google and type in “find my phone”. You will be presented with a map that displays your device’s location. Oh, and you can also switch devices, if you have multiple. Easy as pie!
Opinion: I know I would have loved this feature a couple times I found myself in a desperate search for my lost smartphone. It feels just as bad as when you got lost in a super market when you were a kid, doesn’t it?
Pretty much all new phones are coming with QHD displays nowadays. It certainly has become a trend, but just having a 2560x1440p resolution is not enough. What’s the point of an insane definition if the panel is no good? You also need good color reproduction, strong brightness and other properties that pertain to good displays.
Today’s new LG teaser revolves around the G4’s superior screen, which we got a glimpse of recently. LG touts 25% more brightness and 20% wider color range for its LG G3 QHD Quantum Display. Compared to the G3, that is.
Opinion: LG states “the difference is obvious”, but that is something we will see later when the phone is announced, on April 28th.
