Motorola has slowly dropped out of the flagship phone race in recent years, but it's coming roaring back in 2020 with the Edge+. It's got all the latest hardware including a Snapdragon 865, millimeter wave 5G, and a gaggle of camera sensors. It also has the curviest curved OLED panel you've ever seen. You'll only be able to see it on Verizon, though. Motorola has a cheaper version of this device called simply the Motorola Edge, but we know much less about its release plans here.

Galaxy S20 owners on Sprint will soon have access to T-Mobile's nationwide 5G

The consummation of Sprint and T-Mobile's merger, in addition a whole slew of other consequences, means two cellular networks are coming together. The New T-Mobile is already building on Sprint's mid-band 2.5GHz spectrum licenses — prized for giving a balance of speed and coverage for 5G — in a couple of major cities while Sprint customers already roaming on T-Mobile LTE can soon access 600MHz 5G if they have the right phone.

EE phone masts in UK suffer 22 new attacks over Easter from anti-5G campaigners

The coronavirus pandemic, as with most major global events, has inspired a number of conspiracy theories that are in no way supported by scientific fact.

It's natural to dismiss this type of tin foil thinking as mostly harmless, but things have now escalated to the point where three 5G masts in the UK have been attacked, with arson by conspiracy theorists named as the probable cause.

Xiaomi’s Redmi K30 Pro and 30x Zoom Edition offer flagship specs for less

It was about a year ago when Xiaomi’s sub-brand Redmi forayed into the premium smartphone segment with modest pricing akin to a OnePlus 'flagship killer.' The Redmi K20 has already seen a follow-up as the Chinese company rushes to democratize 5G connectivity, and now it's time for the Pro model to receive a successor, which Xiaomi announced earlier today in China. The K30 Pro takes over as the most premium handset in Redmi’s arsenal, packing four cameras and a nearly edge-to-edge screen.

Android 10 update for Sprint OnePlus 7 Pro 5G now rolling out (Updated)

While the OnePlus 7 and 7 Pro received Android 10 in September, the company has been very quiet about when the latest major release would hit its first 5G phone, the 7 Pro 5G.
