WHAT IS NEW

OnePlus just gets better

The Android community is getting hyped about the Google I/O 2019, but others are looking forward to launches of new smartphones. OnePlus is slated to launch at least two new hardware products next week on May 14th.

New OnePlus 7 leaks point to at least two phones that will compete with the best smartphones– especially the best Android smartphone– with a gaming-ready silky smooth screen that has 9oHz refresh rate.

The OnePlus 7 is rumoured to run Android 9 Pie and is expected to be powered by a 3,700mAh battery.

As far as the cameras are concerned, the OnePlus 7 is rumoured to pack a 48-megapixel primary camera with an f/1.7 aperture and a second 5-megapixel camera. It is expected to sport a camera on the front for selfies.

The OnePlus 7 runs OxygenOS based on Android 9 Pie and packs 128GB of inbuilt storage. The OnePlus 7 tipped to be a dual-SIM (GSM) smartphone that will accept Nano-SIMsmartphone.

Connectivity options on the OnePlus 7 are said to include Wi-Fi, GPS, USB Type-C, 3G, and 4G (with support for Band 40 used by some LTE networks in India). Sensors on the phone are rumoured to include accelerometer, ambient light sensor, and proximity sensor. The OnePlus 7 supports face unlock.

Dark Mode for Google Chrome

Google has released Chrome 74 for Windows, Mac, Linux, Chrome OS, and Android users. While each new version comes with new features and bug fixes, the main new addition in today’s release is, by far, the support for a Dark Mode for Windows users.

Mac users have already been enjoying Chrome’s Dark Mode feature since last month, since the release of Chrome 73.

Just like for Mac users, if Windows users want to enable Chrome’s Dark Mode they’ll have to modify the operating system’s skin to use “Dark” setting, Chrome will automatically switch to a dark mode along with the OS.

Although dark mode is available now for Google Chrome, the company says that it’ll be enabling the feature gradually, meaning that only a select number of users will initially get this feature by default.  

Chrome 74 also includes a number of other changes that aren’t as obvious to spot visually. Chrome’s animation features can now be disabled to reduce motion sickness, and there’s a new flag to block websites from detecting Incognito Mode.
