ZTE responds to US ban, says it will ‘take judicial measures’ if necessary

Saturday, April 21st, 2018

ZTE was caught dodging US sanctions on Iran two years ago. To avoid a possible US import ban (ZTE is based in China), it paid nearly a billion dollars in fines. Part of the settlement required ZTE to fire four executives and discipline 35 others. Earlier this week, the US Department of Commerce said ZTE had not disciplined or reduced bonuses for the 35 employees. As such, the company was barred from importing US tech (including Qualcomm processors) for seven years.

New US ban against ZTE means there might not be an Axon 8

Monday, April 16th, 2018

Back in 2016, ZTE was accused of dodging United States sanctions on Iran. Even though ZTE is based in China, it was selling technology from the United States to Iran using multiple shell companies. The US Department of Commerce threatened to cut off ZTE from all its supply chain partners in the US, which ZTE avoided by paying nearly a billion dollars in fines.

The Department of Commerce announced today that all American companies are now banned from selling components to ZTE, due to the company violating the terms of the sanctions case.

Samsung hit with lawsuit of up to $2.8 billion for infringing on biometric-related patents

Friday, April 13th, 2018

With their fingerprint sensors, iris scanners, and facial recognition tech, Samsung phones feature more methods of biometric authentication than most, if not all, of their competitors. However, the Korean company is now being sued by a US-based "data security firm," PACid Technologies, for infringing on two US patents and one Korean patent with its biometric features.

The lawsuit, filed on April 6th with the Texas Eastern District Court, comprises phones from the Galaxy S6 all the way to the Galaxy S8.

ZTE Tempo Go is the US’s first Android Go phone, on sale today for $80

Friday, March 30th, 2018

For a while, ZTE and Alcatel seemed like they were in a bit of a race to be the first company to release an Android Go phone in the US. Two weeks ago, Alcatel announced that its 1X would be coming stateside sometime soon, but ZTE had the Tempo Go listed but unavailable on its US site since just after its announcement. But, today you can finally buy one, and it's only $79.99.

ASUS ZenFone Max Plus is now available in the US for $229

Tuesday, February 27th, 2018

ASUS announced the ZenFone Max Plus early last month at CES, saying that the phone would become available in February. Well, it's the second-last day of February, and ASUS has technically lived up to its word; the ZenFone Max Plus is now available for purchase at a variety of retailers stateside.

The phone is officially called "ZenFone Max Plus (M1)," but the PR refers to it as "ZenFone Max Plus M1" and retail listings simply call it "ZenFone Max Plus." The M1 appended at the end seems a little useless for a long-enough name, but I digress.

The Nokia 6 (2018) will be sold in the US starting in May

Tuesday, February 27th, 2018

Nokia has been making a pretty substantial comeback in the past year or so. The company just announced four new phones at MWC, and it turns out they, along with all future Nokia phones, will be Android One devices. Despite the first-gen Nokia 6 making it stateside via retailers like Amazon and Best Buy, it was initially unclear whether any of the MWC-announced phones would. We now have confirmation from Juho Sarvikas, HMD's chief product officer.

Thursday, February 22nd, 2018

Were you hoping to pick up a OnePlus 5T in the eye-catching Lava Red down the line? Well, if you're in the US or Canada, you won't be able to anymore - at least from OnePlus directly. The company has announced that the red 5T has officially sold out in North America.

This isn't a huge surprise, considering that the Sandstone White's stock will also never be replenished, but it's a disappointment nonetheless.

Google Maps Go beta expands to the US

Thursday, February 8th, 2018

Google started a beta program for Google Maps Go—the lightweight low-data version of Google Maps—back in January, but at the time you couldn't actually install it on non-Go phones. That was a bit disappointing; while the app itself might be nothing more than a shell for the PWA accessible via Chrome, the app is still bound to come in handy as a shortcut for those on slower connections. Now Google has decided to let more of us in on the fun, as the beta program on Google Play has expanded to the US.
