iPhone 12: For the time being, probably no 5G in dual SIM mode

Iphone 12 5G Problems and Solution

Like their predecessors, the new iPhone 12 models come with a normal SIM slot and eSIM support. Dual SIM operation is possible together. As Macrumors reported in relation to internal Apple documents, 5G in dual SIM mode is not to be available for the time being. Specifically, the document originally shared on reddit says:

“Does 5G work with Dual SIM?”

When using two lines in Dual SIM mode, 5G data isn’t supported on either line and will fall back to 4G LTE. If customers are using eSIM only and are on a 5G supported carrier and service plan, they’ll have 5G access.

OnePlus 8T: First leak of its design


In a very short time, OnePlus will have established itself as a major manufacturer of the telephony market. To successfully stand up to giants like Apple, Samsung or Huawei, the Chinese firm has a simple strategy: forge a strong relationship with its fanbase. Thus, OnePlus smartphone users regularly exchange views with each other, but also with teams who are thinking about future models. Always excellent models, both high-end and mid-range, with the attractive OnePlus North . And today, it is an upcoming smartphone that is the victim of a big leak.

OnePlus 8T

A photo found in the OxygenOS 11 beta

OnePlus had a pretty good 2020 with several popular models. First, the OnePlus 8 range, the Pro version of which is among the best phones today. Then, with a convincing OnePlus Nord, sort of iPhone SE under Android and oriented mid-range. A model that will have seduced the press, as well as the users.

And it seems that OnePlus has in its boxes a fourth phone for the year 2020. It is in the beta of OxygenOS 11 that OxygenUpdater found an image with the mention ” oneplus-8t.webp “. A name that leaves little room for doubt: it seems that the image has escaped the attention of developers. Regarding the fourth OxygenOS beta, OxygenUpdater specifies that the image was not there in previous versions.

Design level, nothing surprising. There is a front panel similar to previous models in the OnePlus 8 range, but this time a flat screen. The borders have been (it seems) refined , to make it a little more borderless.

Unfortunately, no image of the rear of the OnePlus 8T. Difficult , therefore, to know how many sensors will be present.

That a “ T ” variation for the OnePlus 8 is on the program is not surprising. This is a habit at OnePlus that its fans are familiar with. There is also a chance that the Chinese firm will unveil a OnePlus 8T Pro, which should be the ultra- successful version of its range.

The Galaxy M51 formalized, with a 7000 mAh battery


The Samsung Galaxy M51 has been made official by the German branch of Samsung. As you might expect, it has a high capacity battery and a 64-megapixel photosensor.

The Samsung Galaxy M51

Having been widely talked about lately through rumors and leaks, the Galaxy M51 is now official. While we expected it to debut in India, it finally saw the light of day at Samsung Germany. In terms of configuration and design, this new Android smartphone from the South Korean firm has rather remained faithful to the unofficial information that has circulated on the web in recent weeks. Also, it is indeed a question of a 7000 mAh battery compatible with the 25 W fast charges.

6.7-inch Super AMOLED display

In terms of display, the Galaxy M51 sports a 6.7-inch Super AMOLED panel with a 19.5: 9 ratio. Offering a resolution of 2340 x 1080p (Full HD +), it is equipped with a protective glass Corning Glass 3. It also has a punch that houses a 32 megapixel selfie camera. Unfortunately, the screen of this new Galaxy smartphone does not include a fingerprint reader. The biometric sensor is located on the right side of the phone.

Regarding the back photo module, it contains four cameras arranged in an L-shape as well as an LED flash. The main camera has a resolution of 64 megapixels, compared to 5 megapixels for the macro lens and 12 megapixels for the ultra-wide sensor whose field of view extends to 123 degrees. The depth sensor is 5 mpx. Thanks to this photographic configuration, the Galaxy M51 can shoot 4K videos with a maximum of 30 frames per second.

Price and availability

The Samsung Galaxy M51 is already available for pre-order at a price of 360 €. Since it was unveiled by a European branch of the manufacturer, we can expect availability in many countries of the Old Continent. Otherwise, be aware that delivery will begin on September 11. Samsung offers us two color options. It is possible to choose between black and white.


The LG Wing, the smartphone with rotating screens.

LG is working on a smartphone with rotating screens. Known as LG Wing, the terminal has just appeared online through a video that is supposed to allow us to understand the usefulness of such a concept. As the start of the school year approaches, manufacturers are accelerating the development of their products in order to be able to take advantage of the purchasing boom generated by this time of year, but also by the end of year holidays. In the case of LG, the Korean firm is working on a smartphone called Wing. Admittedly, we have so far very little information about the latter, but thanks to a new leak, we now have an idea of ​​its design.

Better multitasking experience

According to our colleagues, the main advantage of this design is that it provides more flexibility as well as an improved multitasking experience. As shown in the video below, the secondary display allows the user to take calls or manage music playback, while the primary display shows the map as well as navigation data when in the car. .

The LG Wing that the video reveals to us would be an almost finalized prototype. This information is of great importance as it seems to confirm some rumors about the terminal’s release.

If we are to believe the latter, the manufacturer could launch its smartphone with rotating screens before the end of the year. In short, LG should not miss this launch window given the importance of the leeway it has.

A premium mid-range?

Despite its rather innovative display concept, the LG Wing is said to be a “premium” mid-range smartphone. The specifications accompanying the video also corroborate this hypothesis.

Indeed, the terminal would be powered by a processor from the Snapdragon 7xx series. Compatible with 5G, it would have a 64-megapixel camera. And given that no cutout is visible on the front side, the selfie camera may have been integrated into the main panel.

What if the Galaxy S21 had 16 GB of RAM in LPDDR5?


The Galaxy S21 will not be launched until early next year, and it is not even known whether it will bear this name or whether Samsung will prefer to give us a Galaxy S30 to mark a new break. In the meantime, the first rumors are starting to appear on the web and one of them should interest some of you.

Samsung launches mass production of 16GB RAM module in LPDDR5

However, earlier in the year, Samsung lifted the veil on a new type of LPDDR5 memory, memory reaching the 16 GB threshold and also benefiting from a 10 nm (1z) burning process.

Galaxy S21

At the time, the brand had mentioned a start of production stalled for the second part of the year, without giving more details. A few months later, the project seems to have taken a new turn. Samsung has just announced the start of mass production of this module, a production provided by a new production line located in the Pyeongtaek plant in South Korea.

This detail is not trivial. To be able to develop this module, Samsung had to use the third generation of its 10nm engraving process. But the sacrifices made by the firm have obviously paid off since all the prerequisites necessary for the production of this new module have finally been met .

Which brings us to a question: which will be the first smartphone to benefit from this memory module?

A module that will be found on board the Galaxy S21?

At present, the devices with the best memory do not exceed 12 GB. We therefore imagine that we will have to wait until 2021 to see the arrival of the first smartphones to embed 16 GB of RAM. Samsung has a habit of giving priority to its own products, so we can imagine that this module will be present on board the Galaxy S21. Which would also be a good way to highlight its strengths.

For Samsung, the Galaxy S range has indeed always served as a foil and a technical demo. Beyond the sales figures, these devices are also a good way for the manufacturer to show what its chips and technologies are capable of. By offering this memory module on its new flagship, the brand would therefore ensure good visibility … which could lead to new contracts.

But of course, at this point it’s only pure speculation and we’ll have to wait a while longer to see if the Galaxy S21 will actually play this card. In any case, on our side, we hope that this will be the case since this module offers a transfer rate of 6400 Mbps, i.e. a transfer rate 16 times higher than that of the memory module on board the Galaxy Note 20.

Oops, the price of the Galaxy Z Fold 2 has been leaked by Samsung UK


Samsung UK has made a big mistake. The British division of the electronics giant has indeed mistakenly published the Galaxy Z Fold 2 page, revealing at the same time the price of its new folding smartphone. With, once is not custom, a good surprise to the key.

Posted yesterday late afternoon, the page in question was actually the terminal’s pre-reservation page. A page on which appeared some technical information, but also the selling price of the device.

Galaxy Z Fold

Assuming Samsung UK got the price right, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 should therefore be priced at £ 1,799 in UK territory.

Galaxy Z Fold 2 to be priced at £ 1,799 in the UK

How does this concern us? Well, the answer is simple. That price is £ 100 below what the first iteration of the folding smartphone was offered. The Galaxy Fold was indeed a little more expensive.

By extension, this means that the price of the terminal should also be revised down a little in the rest of Europe, and in France in particular. What seems to corroborate other rumors. Rumors that placed the European selling price of the Galaxy Z Fold 2 around € 1,999.

This is undeniably good news, especially since the Galaxy Z Fold 2 will go a little further than the previous model. The format will not change, of course, and the terminal will still be able to switch from a smartphone mode to a tablet mode thanks to the two on-board screens.

The first will be placed on one of the sides of the phone and it will cover it entirely, Samsung has decided to erase the unsightly edges of the small screen of the previous model. The same goes for the interior screen, which will be devoid of a notch and which instead offers a punch.

A look reminiscent of the Galaxy Note 20

Better finished, the Galaxy Z Fold 2 will also be more solid, the brand has learned from its past mistakes.

But it is not finished. The device will also be very similar to a Galaxy Note 20 and it will inherit the same photo module … and also the same color. On British soil, the terminal will indeed be offered in two colors: Mystic Bronze and Mystic Black. With a matt back for the first, that goes without saying.

In addition, and still, according to this page, Samsung will also offer access to YouTube Premium with its terminal in order to allow its future buyers to make the most of the multimedia content of the platform.
