This means that members of a supported bank can use a compatible device of the company to pay while on the move at NFC terminals and online via the service.

Samsung Galaxy A8s and Honor View 20 presented

The notch was clearly one of the smartphone trends in 2018. Samsung and Honor are now going a completely different way and are blocking a hole in the display in which the front camera resides. An earpiece is located above the display in both cases. Both smartphones differ slightly in terms of equipment. While the Galaxy A8s with the Snapdragon 710 is still clearly in the mid-range, the View 20 with its Kirin 980 is clearly a top smartphone. Further details on both smartphones can be found in the linked article.

OnePlus 6T unveiled in the McLaren edition

With its latest smartphone, which was developed in cooperation with McLaren, OnePlus wants to outbid the OnePlus 6T, which was released some time ago. For this, for the first time ever, there is 10 gigabytes of RAM in a smartphone. As a result, the smartphone should still be sufficiently fast in the future. To show a resemblance to McLaren, there is a logo of the automaker on the back of the smartphone and some orange accents. There is a layer of carbon under the back of the glass.

Third TechnikNews Advent competition

Like last week, we have prepared a competition today. There are four prizes again: A PlayStation 4 Pro, an Xbox One X, a FRITZ!Box 7590 and gaming accessories from Razer. The rules for participation are the same as the week before. More information in the article.
