Apple’s newest iPhone X, which is yet to hit global markets, has had its own share of bouquets and brickbats. Whether people find the Face ID feature useful or a threat to privacy, KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo has claimed that all iPhone models next year are set to include the biometric recognition system that uses facial scanning technique. The 3D scanning feature, as Kuo notes, will give future iPhone models an edge over Android smartphones.

Another major happening of the day was the latest figures of Apple iOS installation base. As per analytics company Mixpanel, the latest iOS 11 was already installed on 48.6 percent of devices, exceeding iOS 10 s install base of 45.4 percent. However, BGR India noticed that while the latest iteration witnessed a good share in installations a day before, there was a dramatic drop in the adoption rate, which had fallen down to 42.7 percent, with iOS 10 again taking the lead 46.5 percent install base. This can be attributed to the range of performance and battery-related issues people are facing. Meanwhile, Apple rolled out the iOS 11.0.3 yesterday.

While it is still not official if the purported smartphone will actually be released as an upgrade to the OnePlus 5 or will be a completely new model called as OnePlus 6, the rumor mill is churning out new information at a rapid pace. The fresh renders suggest that the smartphone will have a Samsung Galaxy S8-like edge-to-edge display. It was first assumed that the renders were similar to the Oppo F5 smartphone which is scheduled to be launched soon. This brings us to the next big news of the day.

Oppo has started sending out official invites for the launch of a new smartphone, which is speculated to be the Oppo F5. The invite does not detail anything about the device name or type, but the reference silhouette is indicative of a bezel-less display, and a focus on the camera capability. As per the invite, the launch will take place on November 2 in India. Taking forward the highlight of the Oppo F3, the successor is expected to feature a pair of 16-megapixel sensors at the front for enhanced selfies.

Talking about smartphones, telecom operators Vodafone and Idea Cellular are reportedly working on a series of low-cost 4G phones to lure customers. Thanks to the commercial launch of Reliance Jio 4G services last year and the launch of JioPhone this year, incumbent operators are not only mulling consolidation, but also looking at ways to beat the juggernaut in its game by heading towards manufacturing devices. Vodafone and Idea have reportedly approached domestic device makers Lava and Karbonn to build affordable phones. The news follows the scheme launched by Airtel and Karbonn about an ‘effectively priced‘ Rs 1,399 4G smartphone.
