Pixel 4's screen scales down to 60Hz when brightness is set below 75%

One of the biggest additions to Google's new Pixel 4 line is the new 90Hz refresh rate screen. This is a key trend in 2019 flagship phones but now it seems that both Pixel 4 and 4 XL automatically switch to 60Hz when their brightness is set to lower than 75%. The discovery was made by a group of Reddit users and has since been confirmed by many early adopters. Apparently, there is a workaround to this issue through the developer setting where you can lock the 90Hz refresh rate in all scenarios.

OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren Edition announced, is exclusive to T-Mobile USA

Surprise! The OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren Edition is the extra long name of the company's second 5G phone. However, it's not the missing 5G version of the 7T Pro. At least not for anyone not on T-Mobile US as this is an exclusive for the North American carrier. There's no word on pricing yet or when the phone will be released. This is also the only way to get the 7T Pro in the US, by the way. The OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren Edition (boy, this gets tiring) is essentially the same hardware as the 4G version of McLaren Edition other than the new modem. This means that compared to the OnePlus 7...

Samsung teases new Exynos chipset, promises cutting-edge processor

Samsung tweeted a teaser for the next Exynos chipset. It didn't reveal too much, but those "new frontier" and "cutting-edge processor" labels hint at a new flagship chip.

Huawei sells 200 million smartphones in 2019, two months faster than 2018

Huawei might have had a tough year and uncertain future ahead, but the company today reported some good news - it sold 200 million smartphones since the beginning of 2019. The impressive milestone was reached 64 days faster than in 2018, despite being a hostage in the negotiations between the United States and China. The Chinese company already reported that the P30 lineup, announced in March, and the Mate 20 series that debuted last year have been outsold their predecessors. Another reason the 200 million mark shouldn't be a surprise is how steady Huawei is on the top position...
