Samsung has launched a new device with which you can disinfect your cell phone and other small objects using ultraviolet light.

It is a portable UV sterilization box that, according to Samsung, eliminates 99 percent of the germs and bacteria present on the surface of the devices in 10 minutes, in addition to recharging the battery of compatible devices while disinfecting thanks to an integrated wireless charging system. The box integrates an LED light that allows you to see the state of charge of the device without having to remove it and its dimensions (22.8 x 12.8 x 4.9 cm) allow to disinfect cell phones up to 6.9 inches.

OnePlus confirms the name of its next mid-range phone

OnePlus made official the name of its upcoming mid-range phone: OnePlus Nord. 

“Nord will be our first product under $ 500 in recent years,” said Pete Lau, OnePlus chief executive, in a kind of documentary released by the company itself. “For OnePlus and the entire team, this is a huge challenge.” 

OnePlus became known several years ago as a company that offered high-end phones at auction prices. Its first product, the OnePlus One, hit the market at a price of $ 299. However, the company has had to raise its prices due to the cost of the components, among other reasons, until it reached prices of US$ 700 and more.

Google Pixel 4a may be coming: report

Google’s next phone,  the Pixel 4a, could be just around the corner.

The phone has recently been certified under the code name G025J by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), according to an XDA Developers editor who shared the news on his Twitter account on June 25. FCC certifications are typically one of the last bureaucratic red tape done before launching a device to market, so the news suggests the new mid-range Pixel may be very close to being officially unveiled.

The launch of the new Pixel 4a, which was previously delayed from May to June, is expected  on July 13. Rumors suggest that Google considers it more favorable to launch the phone in the second half of the year due to the current coronavirus crisis. The Pixel 4a will be a mid-range smartphone that will arrive with a front camera integrated into the screen, a single camera in the back, a headphone port and  without the Active Edge function  that allows you to activate Google Assistant by pressing it. 

It has been reported that the phone would be priced at US $ 399, with which it could compete with phones like  iPhone SE 2020  and according to reports, there will not be a normal model and an XL as there has always been in the Pixel, but only a normal model in black color.

Google has not yet commented on the Pixel 4a.
