May 15, 2017

Ok, folks, we might actually be onto something quite certain about the next iPhone – it’s not the name, we don’t know for sure that it’s going to be iPhone 8. It’s more exciting than that!

Apple has been granted two quite ‘big’ patents today that indicate a bezel-less, edge-to-edge display, and a fingerprint sensor embedded inside that display. Can we really safely conclude that the next Apple flagship will rock a display, such as the one shown in the patent pics?

eSIM likely to find its way into smartphones by 2018, IHS believes

May 15, 2017

The clip looks like a company promo and shows four Nokia devices. The Nokia 3 and Nokia 5 are already well-known to you, but the other two devices are yet to be made official. One of them looks like a Nokia 6 but has a different camera setup on the back, implying this might be a Nokia 7.
