Niantic celebrating one year of Pokémon Go with real-world and in-game events

It’s almost one year since Pokémon Go first hit the scenes and, to celebrate, Niantic has some big anniversary plans.

From June 13 until June 20, the in-game Solstice Event will see players encounter more fire- and ice-type Pokémon, receive huge XP bonuses for accurate Poke Ball tossing, and get discounted Lucky Eggs at the in-game shop.

Meanwhile, the company will hold its “first-ever” real-world Pokémon GO event: Pokémon Go Fest Chicago. This will take place in Grant Park on July 22 and promises “a ton of exciting festivities.”

Tickets for Pokémon Go Fest will go live at PokemonGoLive.com/Fest on Monday, June 19 at 10:00 AM PDT. Further, Niantic said it would hold events in European shopping centers between June and September, but hasn’t gotten into specifics yet.

In potentially even juicier news, it’s possible that Raids may make their way into the app shortly. In its announcement post, the Pokémon Go team said that soon after the Solstice Event, “You can look forward to a new update focused on collaborative group gameplay features that will get you playing Pokémon Go in fun new ways. In preparation for these exciting features, we’ll be temporarily disabling Gyms for a short period of time.”

Whatever it is, it seems like the previous gym system — which has needed an overhaul since the game’s release — will finally get a makeover.

OnePlus isn’t even trying to hide the OnePlus 5 anymore

OnePlus has never found it important to keep its upcoming smartphones a secret.

Remember the days before the OnePlus 2 was announced? The company slowly revealed the OnePlus 2 on the internet, announcing a new feature of the phone every week until it was officially announced. That left little to the imagination when we finally got the full rundown of the device.

Jumping back to present day and the OnePlus 5 is almost here. And even though we’re not getting a new detail straight from the company every couple of days, we still know a lot about this phone already. Even what it’s going to look like.

A few days ago, a new high-res image of the OnePlus 5 surfaced, showing off the dual-camera setup, mute switch, and general look of the top half of the device. But instead of pretending like that leak didn’t happen (like most other companies would), OnePlus has now decided it’s time to be open about what the OnePlus 5 will look like.

On the official OnePlus Google+ page, an image of the OnePlus 5 was posted with the tagline “Dual Camera. Clearer Photos.”, just as we saw on that leaked retail box for the phone a few weeks ago. The full image is attached below.

Well, that’s it… now there’s absolutely no doubt as to what the OnePlus 5 will end up looking like come June 20.

Here are the countries that will get HTC U11 with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of storage

Last month, HTC officially took the wraps off the U11. The device comes in two variants: one with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of storage and the other with 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of space. In the US, for example, you can get your hands on the former model, while the 6 GB/128 GB version will only be sold in select countries. Thanks to noted HTC leaker LlabTooFeR, we now know exactly where the beefed-up version of the U11 will be available.

LlabTooFeR has posted a list of countries where you’ll be able to get the 6 GB/128 GB variant of the flagship on Twitter. These include China, Taiwan, Malaysia, Singapore, India, Hong Kong, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and the Philippines. This may not be the full list though, as he did mention that the device might make its way to a few other countries as well.

As a refresher, the HTC U11 sports a 5.5-inch QHD display and is powered by the latest Snapdragon 835 chipset. It comes equipped with a 12 MP primary camera with an f/1.7 aperture, phase detection autofocus, optical image stabilization, and a dual-LED flash. The waterproof device packs a 3,000 mAh battery and runs Android 7.1 Nougat with HTC’s Sense UI on top.

One of the most interesting features of the U11 is definitely Edge Sense. Thanks to the pressure sensors in its sides, you can squeeze the phone to open up the camera or Messenger, for example. You can learn more about it by checking out our review of the HTC U11.

Less than a month after Google released the second developer preview for Android O, the company has now made the third developer preview available for owners of selected Nexus and Pixel devices.

Nexus 5X

Keep in mind that if you do decide to flash your device with these factory images, you won’t automatically get future Android O beta or final releases via OTA updates.

BlackBerry KEYone fails the bend test from JerryRigEverything in spectacular fashion

The BlackBerry KEYone may be an early sales hit so far, but buyers of this smartphone should be aware of what looks like a major issue with this device. This problem was reported by the JerryRigEverything YouTube channel as part of its infamous bend test for the KEYone.
The video at first shows that the KEYone, which was actually made by TCL Communication, handles the channel’s scratch tests well for the most part. The screen, body, cameras and even its physical keyboard all continue to work even after lots of scratches and abuse. The display also stands up to the channel’s burn test. However, when the time came to put the KEYone through the bend test, the phone’s display quickly popped out of its frame.
As it turns out, the display on the KEYone was put in place with no adhesive on its back at all to keep it from coming out. This is in stark contrast to other high-end smartphones, like the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus, which have strong adhesives placed on the back of their displays. The KEYone’s screen also stopped working after the bend test. The channel notes that other KEYone owners have reported issues with the display popping out of their phones with little to no effort on their part.
This could turn out to be a pretty serious issue for both TCL and BlackBerry, and JerryRigEverything recommends that buyers of the KEYone purchase a case for the phone that may keep the display from suddenly flying out.

New Gionee S10 comes with 4 cameras, 6 GB of RAM and Android 7.0 Nougat

You read that right! It seems the industry is all about throwing as many cameras into a phone as humanly possible. Gionee has announced the S10, which is looking like a great phone on paper, but does have one thing that stands out. Actually… it has four. The Gionee S10’s main feature is its four cameras – two in the back and two in the front.

This Chinese manufacturer is not very popular in the West, but it has a reputation for going above and beyond industry standards. It’s also worth noting that at least a few companies have released Gionee phones under their own branding in western markets, with at least a few BLU phones being based around Gionee’s product line. They announced the M6S last April; that thing has a titanic 6,020 mAh battery! But are they doing this for the sake of being different or to really innovate?

Gionee claims one of the back cameras has an F/1.8 aperture, helping it achieve better low-light photography. Other advantages include wider angles, the ability to catch 3D effects, distance measurement and more.

The phone’s other specs are also pretty good. The device comes with a Mediatek Helio P25 processor, 6 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal storage, a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a 3,450 mAh battery, and Android 7.0 Nougat. As for the cameras, we are looking at a 16 MP and an 8 MP camera in the rear. The front houses a 20 MP camera and a secondary 8 MP one.

Interested? Here’s the downside – you will likely have a hard time getting a hold of one, unless you live in China. It is now available in its home country for 2,599 Yuan, which is equivalent to about $380 USD.

Would you buy an LG V30 that looked like this?

New renders have appeared that show an early version of LG’s vision for the upcoming V30. Essentially a slider phone with a secondary touch display in place of the physical keyboard you might find on the BlackBerry Priv, it’s a pretty intriguing concept. Evan Blass, who shared the renders, was quick to note that the final design of the LG V30 may well have departed from these early concepts, but they do provide a tantalising glimpse into LG’s thinking.

The original LG V10 was a surprise hit, with its chunky design, secondary ticker display, dual front-facing cameras, DAC and amp setting it apart both visually and functionally from the rest of the pack. The follow-up V20 took a design departure from the original, falling largely in step behind the flagship LG G5 and switching the dual cameras to the back.

A complete change in the LG V30’s design therefore seems totally feasible. LG clearly hasn’t settled on a fixed approach for the V line and in general mixes up its designs on the regular – just look at the G series. In a saturated smartphone marketplace, a “gimmick” like a slider phone could go a long way toward standing out, for better or worse.

Personally, I have fond memories of slider phones generally and, despite its flaws, enjoyed the BlackBerry Priv immensely. That would make a V30 like this instantly appealing to someone like me. But the Priv failed to find much of an audience beyond the BlackBerry faithful and the V30 might suffer a similar fate if it follows the slider approach. Regarding the Priv’s failure to catch on, maybe it was BlackBerry, maybe it was the slider, maybe it was the combination of both, but a slider could be risky territory for LG.

On the other hand, the secondary touch display, with its numerous use cases as outlined in a follow up tweet from Blass, could endear it to a lot of phone buyers looking for something a little different from the metal and glass slabs we’ve grown increasingly accustomed to. There’s no denying this would attract a lot of attention in retail stores and on the street, and, if LG could nail the software, it could easily be very popular.
