DeutscheBank: Anniversary OLED iPhone will be delayed until next year

AppleiOSRumors Analysts are becoming increasingly sure that the new OLED iPhone will be delayed – Deutsche Bank joins KGI in predicting that supply shortages of key components will not allow the overhauled iPhone to launch alongside the iPhone 7s. The 7s will be an incremental improvement over the current iPhone 7 without much novelty. The OLED-packing iPhone (aka iPhone 8), is a much bigger upgrade.

Galaxy Note7 units still in use in Australia will be disconnected from the mobile networks on December 15

Last month Samsung went further than ever in trying to ensure that all Galaxy Note7 units sold in New Zealand are returned following its discontinuation of the device. Working with the carriers over there, the company has basically shut down mobile network access for those Note7 handsets still in the wild. This move has apparently proved successful, since Samsung is now getting ready to do the exact same thing in neighboring Australia.

Getting the full picture about the LG V20’s pricing and availability in the US is proving a tad more complicated than we would have expected. T-Mobile revealed the first piece of the puzzle earlier today, saying it would start selling the handset on October 28. Yet the magenta carrier remained mum on any pricing information.

It will replace the ever-prevalent microUSB connector. What isn’t as clear is which standard

All Moto devices in 2016 will have fingerprint scanners, Lenovo exec says

Despite basically pioneering the concept of a smartphone with a built-in fingerprint scanner with the Atrix 4G back in 2011, Motorola hasn’t been quick to jump back on this train last year, when such sensors have been featured in pretty much every high-end Android device. That will change in 2016, however. Chen Xudong, SVP of Lenovo and president for Lenovo China and Asia Pacific, has revealed that all Moto-branded handsets launching
