Huawei started to ban to take the 5G networks

Major Chinese manufacturers of network equipment and other equipment are not allowed to develop in the international market, fearing for their own safety.

We are talking about Huawei and ZTE. Australia has banned these companies to provide the country with equipment for the development of 5G networks, which is scheduled to start in 2019.

On Twitter, the Australian unit of Huawei said the following:

We have been informed by the government (Australian) that provision of 5G-technology from Huawei and ZTE were blocked. This is an extremely disappointing outcome for consumers. Huawei is a global leader in 5G. Safely provided wireless technologies Australia for 15 years.

The concern of the Australian government understood against the background of the new law in China that all Chinese organizations and citizens are obliged to provide necessary information to national intelligence agencies on request.

Probably for the same reason the US government banned the use of any equipment Huawei and ZTE in public institutions.

The problem is also technical. If you believe the government of Australia, 5G networks from a technical point of view different from the current ones and create new risks and a threat to national security. The new architecture allows to bypass current solutions for security. The government has so far failed to find technical means to reduce the risk in 5G networks.

Motorola has patented a very unusual device

Remember the famous phones from Motorola, which was a true legend of his time and was called the RAZR? Now, the company has patented the concept of a device, which can be a flexible analogue of that phone. Looks like someone decided to get ahead of Samsung and Huawei in the fight for the release of the first foldable smartphone.

The device really resembles the RAZR line. Line RAZR at that time really was one of the best. The phone company was very stylish and felt like an iPhone by today’s standards.

Of course, not the fact that the new flexible smartphone Motorola will be a continuation of the RAZR line, but this is the most likely outcome.

While flexible smartphones are not quite flexible. You may notice that the housing consists of two parts, by analogy with the laptops. Current flexible smartphone will be available soon due to technical limitations.

You can also notice that the screen is not fully bent, it will lead to revealing the smartphone, the Central part of the display will be in a recess.

Of course, while this is only a patent, and the final version may be quite different, but the fact that the patent exists, suggests that it’s a start.

Nokia is ashamed of the “bangs” in their smartphones

Nokia recently presented the Nokia 5.1 Plus, suddenly decided to radically change the strategy of its promotion in European countries. To do this, the Finnish manufacturer has slipped a notch in the top of the screen, obviously deciding that thus the novelty will be able to attract much more attention.

Compare how the same poster Nokia 5.1. Plus, presented in the beginning of the week, presented to customers in Germany and Russia. I personally divergence in the concept of progress is evident immediately. And you?



For some unknown reason marketers Nokia felt that to hide the notch will be the best solution to attract consumers. What yesterday was presented as the greatest achievement in the field of design, today mercilessly painted in an attempt to give the appearance of a smartphone lost in trying to copy the iPhone symmetry.

It is noteworthy that Russia was the only European country where Nokia needs to come Plus 5.1, where the neckline is somehow not blacked out. Perhaps domestic office Nokia felt that characteristic “Bang” adds the novelty of similarities with iPhone X to buy which, as shown, can not afford every Russian.
