One report said no, another said yes, while a new report backs a third possibility: only on US iPhones …

Renders allegedly reveal Samsung’s first phone with a pop-up camera; 5G support not clear

Renders allegedly reveal Samsung's first phone with a pop-up camera; 5G support not clear

Most of the phone manufacturers that used a pop-up selfie camera to deliver a phone with a high screen-to-body percentage have already moved on to punch-holes. Why? There are several reasons that we can think of including the fact that users are relying on a mechanical system. It also costs the manufacturers more money to design and it can collect dust and dirt that will be brought inside the phone by the mechanism. Using a pop-up selfie camera also makes a phone more vulnerable to water damage so phones with this feature typically do not sport an IP rating. read more

The US Restricts Huawei In 5G, But Wi-Fi Is Up For Grabs


The US and other countries restrict Huawei in 5G (even providing funding to “rip and replace” the equipment), but this does not stop the company from deploying in Wi-Fi networks. Once a device is deployed in Wi-Fi, it can’t be forcibly recalled for security reasons. Huawei touts its role in Wi-Fi 6considered the future-proofing strategy for the Wi-Fi industry.  The Austin-based Wi-Fi Alliance recently honored top tier member Huawei for its leadership in the Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ program, allowing its products to be embossed with the Wi-Fi read more

5-carrier aggregation gives AT&T network edge – RootMetrics

AT&T delivered speed gains across 51 markets in the early part of 2020, with its wide-scale use of 5-component carrier aggregation and 4×4 MIMO giving it an edge over competition, according to RootMetrics.

RootMetrics temporarily suspended its network testing but in the meantime is publishing carrier-specific reports on 4G LTE and 5G performance in the first half of 2020.

AT&T’s speeds improved significantly in 51 out of 55 markets in RootMetrics’ testing, outpacing every other carrier. Speed performance on AT&T’s network jumped more than 30 Mbps in four cities at the start of 2020, compared to the end of 2019. read more

T-Mobile’s 5G network expansion leaves Sprint customers behind

Earlier this month, the T-Mobile-Sprint merger finally came to a close. We heard yesterday that T-Mobile is now expanding its 5G network using Sprint’s infrastructure. Unfortunately, in doing so, existing Sprint 5G customers will lose out on their next-gen network speeds.

According to CNET, T-Mobile is shuttering Sprint’s 5G network to fold that spectrum into its own. Sprint customers with one of Samsung’s latest Galaxy S20 devices can take advantage of T-Mobile 5G, but customers with any other 5G device cannot. That’s because most of Sprint’s handsets are not able to tap into T-Mobile’s 5G network. read more
