Apple supplier Wistron is preparing to expand its India-based iPhone manufacturing, with production geared towards the next-generation iPhone SE, according to local sources (via Focus Taiwan). Apple is hoping to build its share of the Indian smartphone market by giving Wistron the majority of the orders for the new iPhone SE, which is said to ship in the first quarter of 2018.
Wistron was targeted as a supplier for the new iPhone SE due to its existing status as a manufacturer for the current iPhone SE, which it officially began assembling in India in May at a plant in Bangalore. That same plant will be the location of assembly for the new iPhone SE as well, and the sources made an unlikely claim that Wistron will target India first when it begins shipping the device to market, and then expand the launch worldwide. Within India, the device will be aimed at customers looking for a cheaper and smaller device.
It looks like AMD’s high-end desktop lineup won’t be limited to XFR-compatible chips after all. While the initial salvo of Threadripper CPUs—the 16-core Threadripper 1950X, 12-core Threadripper 1920X, and 8-core Threadripper 1900X—all sport the telling “X” designation, CPU support pages from several motherboard vendors have tipped off a non-X Threadripper 1920 that AMD hasn’t announced yet.
Tweakers discovered the Threadripper 1920 listed on websites for Asus, Gigabyte, and ASRock. PCWorld was able to confirm the listing on Gigabyte and ASRock’s sites, though Asus has since scrubbed its support page for the $550 ROG Zenith Extreme entirely.
We’re a little over one month out from the expected September unveiling of the ten year anniversary iPhone, which has come to be known as the “iPhone 8” ahead of release. While recent HomePod firmware discoveries have essentially confirmed the iPhone 8’s edge-to-edge design and front-facing sensor bar notch, it’s still unclear how iOS 11 will be incorporated into all of these drastically redesigned hardware upgrades.
New mockups shared by Allen Pike and Max Rudberg this week have taken a look at how these changes might be realized in an iPhone 8 running iOS 11. Particularly, the mockups address one of the more curious additions in the iOS 11 beta: large, banner pieces of text that sit atop apps like Messages, Mail, and the App Store. Pike pointed out that these “Large Title” banners sit below navigation buttons in many of the apps, with plenty of “weirdly empty” white space on current model iPhones.
The Moto Z2 Force is a really good phone, and that has nothing to do with its mods.
Thin? Check. Powerful? Check. Flexible? Check. Durable? Check.
The phone to beat? Hard to tell.
Motorola’s newest premium phone, the Moto Z2 Force, arrives at a strange time. The biggest and best phones of the year are right around the corner, most likely: Samsung’s , the (or, iPhones) and an expected .
Where does that leave the Z2 Force? The sequel to last year’s Z and Z Force phones is thin with a sharp design and very good specs. In several significant ways — processor, camera and display — it’s a step up from the excellent midrange . And, it adds Motorola’s shatter-resistant ShatterShield, a feature that used to be a Verizon exclusive on the older .
Over the past few months, we’ve seen various leaks regarding Intel’s upcoming 8th generation ”Coffee Lake” Core processors. Most of the leaks have pertained to core counts and clock speeds, with the top-ranging SKUs sporting 6 cores and 12 threads, which is music to the ears of enthusiasts. However, ASRock has confirmed one bit of bad news regarding Coffee Lake that will leave many banging their heads against their keyboard.
The official Twitter account for ASRock over the weekend responded to a question regarding Coffee Lake compatibility with existing 200-Series LGA 1151 motherboards. The response was quite sobering to say the least:
High-end cinema camera maker Red has been teasing its forthcoming holographic smartphone for the past month, and has now offered the first full view of its prototypes.
RED’s cameras have been used to shoot hundreds of films since 2005, such as Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and most Netflix hit TV series including Stranger Things season two. Earlier this week it struck a deal with Apple to sell some of its high-end kit exclusively at apple.com.
But in early 2018, RED may be competing with Apple — amid its push into augmented reality (AR) on iOS — with the 5.5-inch holographic display Android-powered Hydrogen One smartphone.

Tesla Model 3 is here, and that has pushed me to again incorporate Tesla sales estimates into our monthly US electric car sales reports. Well, that and a repeated request from readers to bring back Tesla’s US sales estimates*.
Surprisingly — despite the ecstatic headlines about the car — the Model 3 isn’t yet #1! However, big sister Model S is, by a sizable margin.
