OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro get November security patch with OxygenOS 10.0.3

OnePlus has started sending out a brand new software update to its devices from the first half of 2019 - the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro. Both of these are now in the process of receiving OxygenOS 10.0.3, and we'll warn you straight from the get-go that this isn't a huge update.

Huawei P40's first render leaks, to feature a curved 6.57" screen

Recently something that looks like an official render of the Huawei P40 started going around the web accompanied by some display specs as well.

Sony unveils 2x2 on-chip lens tech for Quad Bayer sensors, which promises better AF performance

Differences in the sensitivity of pixels prevented such designs, but Sony says it has figured it out and calls its technology 2x2 On-Chip Lens (OCL). The main advantage of this design seems to be improved...
