OnePlus finally revealed that the OnePlus 8T is real and is Coming Officially next month. They're also throwing a Contest where users can Win a brand new OnePlus 8T or Discount on OnePlus Devices just by Clicking on "Notify Me" for the OnePlus 8T News.


OnePlus also released a Trailer Teaser with Brand Ambassador Rober Downey Jr. (also known as RDJ) to promote the upcoming OnePlus 8T 5G Smartphone. Sadly this also confirms there's no OnePlus 8T Pro this year.



We saw the Design of OnePlus 8T a few days back and it's coming with Samsung Galaxy S20 Like Camera module with 48MP likely IMX689. OnePlus will be using 65W SuperWarp Charging, 120Hz FHD+ Display, and Snapdagon 865+ CPU.


So the launch event Kicks 14th October and we're also expecting New OnePlus Nord Devices with OnePlus Buds Z and finally OnePlus Watch. 



Sorry, Android. Google Widget on iPhone is Cool

So Google just made this Cool new Widget Available for iPhones running iOS 14. Apple iOS 14 finally comes with an Option where you can place Widgets inbetween your Applications and that's Something Android has been doing for years, but you know, when Apple do it, it's Cool.


This new Search Widget looks really nice and is available in different sizes for iOS 14. It Got a Search Bar, Lens, Voice Search and Incognito Option right there. Sadly it's not available for Google's own Android, Google likely want it to be iOS Exclusive.

This is not the first time we're seeing something like that from Google's side, Google got a sweet spot for iOS. Motion Stills, Photovine and there are many Cool Google Applications first came to iOS and then made their way to Android.

As an Android user, this makes me feel like Google loves iOS more than Android. Not Cool Google.

This is the Google Pixel 5

Despite of having a Not-So-Premium Plastic Body, Single Camera, and a Small Battery, the Pixel 4A is a huge success, and that's because Google nailed it with the Pricing and Camera.

With the Pixel 5, Google is planning to follow same approach, that's a Plastic Body with Rear-Fingerprint Scanner, and Dual Cameras on Back. Google is using Snapdragon 765 5G CPU in this one.

Basically, it can be seen, Google is mainly focusing on two things, that's Android Software and Camera. There's also a lot Cheaper Google Pixel 4A 5G Coming in with nearly same Specs like Pixel 5 but downgrade Design.

This year there's no Flagship Pixel device like with Higher-Refresh rate, or Higher Megapixels count, or Snapdragon 865 CPU, or IP68 Rating. Main focus is again on Camera, which are unbeatable and Software.
