Verizon plans to sell OnePlus smartphones, possibly in 2020

Speaking to sources familiar with the companies' plans, Android Police has learned that Verizon has inked a partnership with Chinese smartphone manufacturer OnePlus. Those sources have indicated that, based on the timeline of past deals, Verizon intends to release a OnePlus smartphone for sale on its network in 2020. It was unclear exactly when or which smartphone (or phones) would be the first to arrive on the carrier, or if they would support Verizon's nascent 5G mmWave technology (which OnePlus has previously shunned).

PhoneArena reported yesterday that Verizon is planning to exclusively carry the OnePlus 7T Pro 5G McLaren Edition in the US, though our own sources were unable to corrborate an exact model or launch date.

OnePlus just published a recap of its second "Open Ears Forum" from all the way back in May. At the event, it gathered a handful of developers and fans central to the OnePlus community to solicit their feedback. Four months later, the company has revealed a set of changes influenced by that feedback, including more timely kernel sources for Open Betas and a new bounty program for reporting vulnerabilities.

Auto90 lets you force OnePlus 7 Pro's 90Hz mode on a per-app basis

The OnePlus 7 Pro is one of a few Android phones to support a display refresh rate of 90Hz.

The 7 Pro does have a dynamic, content-aware switcher built-in, but if you'd like to have more control, the recently released Auto90 app might be for you. It allows you to set preferred display modes on a per-app basis, though the setup is fairly complicated.
