1. The oneplus 7 phones have arrived!
OnePlus revealed its new OnePlus 7 series yesterday during a multi-city launch event. As expected, the company introduced a new device in its regular numbered OnePlus line, the OnePlus 7, as well as an all-new premium model, the OnePlus 7 Pro.
The pro model will grab most headlines and not just because it’s so fresh and fancy – it’s also the only model being released on U.S. turf. There are no plans for the OnePlus 7 to be released there currently.
Will U.S. smartphone fans missing out on much, though? Here’s the low-down on both devices.
OnePlus 7 Pro
An instant classic?
Both the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro are on sale now and U.S. readers can pick up the Pro model here.
Final important note: Neither phone comes with a USB-C to 3.5mm headphone adapter in the box, so you’ll have to buy one separately, or use those USB-C headphones you don’t own.
2. OnePlus Bullets Wireless V2 review (Android Authority). Alongside its new phones, OnePlus rolled out the second generation of its Bullets Wireless headphones. They’re a certifiable upgrade, but they’re also more expensive.
3. Adobe tells users they can get sued for using old versions of photoshop (Motherboard). That’s completely legitimately-owned versions of Adobe software that just hasn’t been updated for a while… yeah.

7. Huawei says willing to sign ‘no-spy’ agreements (BBC). That’s nice, isn’t it? It’s like a plumber pledging not to steal anything before they fix your pipes.
8. Uber black launches quiet driver mode (TechCrunch). Uber Black and Uber Black SUV riders can select “quiet preferred,” “happy to chat,” or “no preference,” settings from within the app.
9. Google to push new ads on its apps to snare shoppers (Reuters). “It will feature ads on the homepage of its smartphone app worldwide, show more ads in Maps, and place ads with image galleries in search results.” Just what everybody wants(!)
