Qualcomm teases a new OnePlus device sporting a Snapdragon 821

OnePlus 3 There’s still a little time to get a handset out before year’s end. And while increased competition from a number of relative new manufacturers (not to mention Google) have seemingly made things a bit more crowded, Samsung’s recent struggles have, perhaps, left an opening for another flagship. At just under three years old, OnePlus certainly still qualifies as a newcomer, but… Read More

OnePlus is officially releasing an even faster smartphone

OnePlus 3T Release Date
When the OnePlus 3 launched earlier this year, it was one of the very fastest phones on the market. But since launch, new processors have come out and a new iPhone has launched, leaving OnePlus struggling to keep its crown as the fastest handset in town. That could all be about to change. We've already heard rumors that OnePlus is going to launch a spec-bumped version, the OnePlus 3T, with a faster processor. Qualcomm seems to have just confirmed that, tweeting that "something new" is on the way from OnePlus, and it will have Qualcomm's best Snapdragon 821 processor inside.

There’s two types of iPhone 7 Plus, and one is much faster than the other

iPhone 7 Plus Cell Speed
For the first time this year, Apple went with two different providers of cellular modems in the iPhone 7 and 7 Plus. Some phones have Qualcomm modems, the company Apple has worked with for years. The others had Intel modems, marking a real breakthrough for Intel, which has been trying to get its chips into flagship smartphones for years. Unfortunately, testing is showing that there's a big difference between the two modems. Although both will work just fine when there's a good LTE signal, it seems that if you've got an Intel modem, your data speed in areas with less-than-ideal coverage may be much slower.

Qualcomm CEO hints Apple will switch to Intel for iPhone 7’s LTE chip

Bloomberg reports that Qualcomm shares have dropped after the company’s CEO hinted that its biggest customer could switch to a rival supplier for future orders. Reading between the lines, the speculation is that its biggest customer is Apple (Samsung is the only other company close to holding that title) and that a switch to Qualcomm’s rival means Apple’s is considering Intel for LTE modem chips in the iPhone 7:

Report: Apple developing thinner & brighter screens in secret Taiwanese lab

According to a report out of Bloomberg, Apple has opened a secret production laboratory in northern Tawain to focus on developing new display technologies. The report claims that the lab, located in Longtan, has at least 50 engineers and various other employees working to develop iPhone and iPad displays.

Apple has reportedly recruited its employees for the lab from competing display makers AU Optronics and Qualcomm. Apple allegedly opened the lab earlier this year, hoping to make displays that are thinner, lighter, brighter, and more energy-efficient than other options currently on the market. In order to achieve those goals, the company is said to be switching to organic light-emitting diodes, which are thinner and don’t require a backlight.

Another goal of Apple’s with developing its own screen technology is to reduce reliance on suppliers like Samsung, Sharp, and Japan Display. Apple already does a lot of the research for its devices in-house, but outsources the actual manufacturing processes to several other companies.

Apple is said to have moved into the Taiwan lab in April. Qualcomm Display occupied the lab from 2008 until this year. Earlier today, Morgan Stanley issued a report in which it claimed Apple would see its first ever drop in iPhone sales next year due in large part to robust inventories rather than weak demand. One potential thinking on Apple’s part could be that if it begins to manufacture more components in-house, they could have a stronger control on the flow of production.

A report from last month claimed Apple will shift iPhone displays from LCD to OLED in 2018. That technology could very well be what Apple is working on in its new Taiwan lab, especially when you take into consideration a Ming-Chi Kuo report that said Foxconn has recently invested $4 billion into a new LCD display plant.
