This is the OnePlus 7 Pro

OnePlus has been making full use of its marketing budget with the upcoming OnePlus 7 Pro with a number of features either revealed by the company itself or leaked out. Now, we have our closest look yet at the OnePlus 7 Pro with pictures of the device in all its glory showing off the zero-bezel design.
The leaks come courtesy of Ishan Agarwal, who has been very vocal (and accurate) with a number of leaks over the last few months. The image below shows the OnePlus 7 Pro in the Nebula Blue color and also shows the vertical camera array.

OnePlus has already shared images teasing the lens setup in the OnePlus 7 Pro and having already confirmed a 48-megapixel primary sensor with a telephoto lens with 3x optical zoom, the third camera is likely a wide-angle lens. As far as button placement goes, the volume and power button remains in the same place as last year.
The biggest talking point of the OnePlus 7 Pro is the new display where the bezels have been reduced and the notch removed. This resigns the OnePlus 7 Pro to a popup camera mechanism that will popup the front-facing camera on demand. At QHD+ resolution and a 90Hz refresh rate, the display is gearing up to be absolutely stunning and a stand out feature of the OnePlus 7 Pro.

The device will also be available in a Mirror Grey finish and will be unveiled on May 14. The OnePlus 7 Pro will cost €749/$749, cementing OnePlus firmly in the premium device bracket.

Google confirms Top Shot isn't coming to the Pixel 2, despite some seeing "dots" in Motion Photos

When Google introduced Top Shot to the Pixel 3 and 3 XL, it was viewed as a lifesaver for blurry shots, jittery shots, friends who’ve had too many shots (you know who they are), or just bad happenstance. Owners of other Pixel phones were a little jealous and wondered if the feature would ever make it back to their model. Well, the official answer is “no,” but if Pixel 2 and 2 XL owners happen to receive a Motion Photo taken on a Pixel 3, they should be able to see and save those Top Shots.

The Samsung Galaxy Note 10 could have curves for dayz

Samsung will launch the Galaxy Note 10 around August this year and we’re expecting there to also be a Note 10 Pro, as well as an accompanying 5G model of each. While the Note series typically follows a similar design inspiration from the Galaxy S device launched earlier in the year, Samsung could be looking to mix things up with the Note 10 this year according to a new leak.
The Galaxy S10 introduced a brand new design that saw the Infinity-O display reduce the bezels of the device and introduce a hole-punch in the top right of the device to house the front-facing camera. The design has been met with mixed reviews but is the company’s answer to the notch. Samsung could be looking to change the design even further this year with the Note 10.

Whether you like curved display or not, it’s still the flagship phone logo, especially in the second half of the year, you’ll see a very superb curved design, a more aggressive curved display than Note7 will appear, and more than one brand will do so.😎

According to the tweet above, which comes from a source that has a good track history of being familiar with Samsung’s movements, the Note 10 could take the curved design seen on the S10 that has been a signature of the Galaxy flagships for years a step further and feature even more prominent curvature.
The curved edge of the display was first introduced with the Galaxy Edge and has since been made the standard, albeit with a reduced curve. If the tweet is to be believed, the Note 10 could be going back to its roots and be the curviest display we’ve seen yet.

Chrome will soon support dark themes in websites

Web browsers currently handle dark mode in one of two ways. Some of them, like Samsung Browser, simply invert the colors of the web page. This sometimes breaks the site’s design, but it works universally. Another approach is to let sites know that dark mode is activated, and let them use an alternative theme. Chrome appears to be joining the latter camp, as the browser’s development team announced support the ‘prefers-color-scheme’ browser feature.
