Weekly tech updates
Another great week of technology and mobile passed away, leaving some sweet memory and a bad memory for many companies. As usual, we are bringing you the top five tech update from this week. This week was very tough for Samsung as they have to recall and stop the production of their newly launched flagship Note 7 from the market.

So let’s start the list.

Samsung stopped producing Galaxy Note 7, asked customer to switch off their devices

South Korean tech giant Samsung is going through the rough phase of their smartphone business, company's biggest and recently launched flagship phone Galaxy Note 7 has made the headline with all the bad reasons.

To brief you about the incident, as we all are aware Galaxy Note 7 started catching fire after the commercial launch and Samsung recalled 2.5 million phones in September after complaints of exploding batteries, and later replaced the older devices with new one and insisted that all replaced devices were safe, but there are now reports that even those phones were catching fire.

OnePlus to halt the production of OnePlus 3

OnePlus may soon halt production of its OnePlus 3 smartphone to make way for a new variant, as per industry sources, and it may be called the OnePlus 3s or OnePlus 3 Plus. The Chinese company is said to be working on a refreshed version of the OnePlus 3 which will come with the upgraded Snapdragon 821 processor. The existing OnePlus 3 models feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 820.

Nokia is launching its new tablet D1C

Nokia D1C was earlier reported as one of the mid-range smartphones from the Finnish smartphone maker. Wait, a new benchmark reveals it’s a tablet and not smartphone. An Antutu listing last week confirmed a Nokia device running Android 7.0 Nougat in works. The device was easily conceived to be one of the midrange smartphone based on the specs but it seems Nokia has some other idea. With D1C, Nokia is probably aiming at an Android-based home entertainment device. The tablet is a likely competitor to Samsung’s 18.4-inch Galaxy View tablet.

Get Google Assistant on your Android device

Assistant is Google Pixel’s major selling point as the tech giant has presently restricted the feature from being available to smartphones below Android Nougat. Even those smartphones who support Google’s Android Nougat developer versions.

However, with a little tweaking of a simple system file called ‘build.prop’, the Google Assistant can be enabled on an Android smartphone with the Nougat developer version.

iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus suffering from touch disease

An increasing number of iPhone users are reporting an issue with iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus phones freezing up and becoming unresponsive to touch.

The issue even has a deadly sounding name: "Touch disease."

The so-called "Touch Disease" affects a large number of Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus models, and users can easily identify it. The most common symptoms are a flickering gray bar going across the screen's width (usually at the top) and the screen becomes unresponsive to input.
During the summer, Apple was called to court by a class-action lawsuit, as the main plaintiff claimed that the affected iPhone models have a design flaw that is behind the aforementioned issues.

These are some of the tech updates from the last week, hope you have got the glance what has happened last week in the tech industry. Will be back with next week update, to make sure you get all the updates from App Gyaan directly in your inbox subscribe to App Gyaan.
