OnePlus has never been particularly beholden to industry trends. Nowhere is that better demonstrated than with the 7 Pro. In the face of a stagnated smartphone market, Apple, Samsung and Google all went budget, releasing lower-tier takes on their pricey flagships to appeal to consumers looking for ...
the Guardian
Having made a name for itself for cut-price top-spec phones, OnePlus now has its sights set on the Samsung Galaxy S10+ and Huawei P30 Pro with its new OnePlus 7 Pro. Costing from £649 the new premium OnePlus still undercuts the competition by about £250, but isn't quite as value-oriented as previous offerings.
The Verge
The OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro are finally official, after many leaks and teases. While the 7 looks very similar to last year's OnePlus 6T, the 7 Pro has an all-new design with an edge-to-edge screen and a triple rear camera. It will be available this week for $669 and up.

As we asked back in February, "We're ready for foldable phones, but are they ready for us?" The answer, so far, has been an enthusiastic, "not really." The Galaxy Fold was pushed back, after multiple review units crapped the proverbial bed. And just last week, Huawei noted that it was holding...
The Verge
AT&T has been emailing customers one potential answer to when the Samsung Galaxy Fold might ship - June 13th. That's according to a bunch of screenshots we've been seeing on Twitter and Reddit. The screenshots themselves are certainly legit, but that doesn't mean that the date is.
The Verge
Samsung has confirmed reports from earlier today that it is postponing the release of its $2,000 Galaxy Fold foldable phone only days before it was originally scheduled to go on sale. "We plan to announce the [new] release date in the coming weeks," Samsung said in a statement.
TechCrunch
Samsung has issued a statement about its new, folding phone as early photos of tech reviewers with their shiny new toys were replaced on social media (and in numerous columns) with complaints from those same tech reviewers about problems with the phone's screen. Apparently a number of reviewe...
CNET
Samsung on Wednesday finally unveiled its foldable phone, the Galaxy Fold. With a total of two screens, six cameras and two batteries, the Galaxy Fold is a whole lot of phone.

Premium smartphone manufacturers have moved the needle on pricing, but 2019 may well go down as a kind of golden age for budget flagships. Apple, Google and Samsung are all in that business now, and OnePlus has once again shown the world how to offer more for less.
The Verge
The Asus Zenfone 6 has officially been announced, and where the Zenfone 5 was basically just a boring iPhone X clone, the new model is thinking way outside the box, eliminating the top bezel entirely thanks to a completely wild rotating camera.

Xiaomi replaces the notch with a slider

Mi MIX 3 pushes the limits of Full Screen Display with 93.4% screen-to-body ratio. The front of the phone is virtually all screen thanks to the hidden dual camera design, made possible by the innovative magnetic slider, which stayed working like new after 300,000 intensive test slides.

TechRadar
The Xiaomi Mi Mix 3 is a striking smartphone, with an all-screen display that shuns the notch and 'punch-hole' design culture currently sweeping the industry in favor of a cleaner, smarter look. Now, you might be wondering, if there's an all-screen display, but no notch, and no punch-hole, where's the selfie camera?
The Verge
There are a lot of interesting phone designs coming out this year, with one goal: avoid the notch. Xiaomi's Mi Mix 3 uses a sliding design to hide the camera behind the screen, but as we found, it comes with a host of other compromises.
