Truecaller 8 brings payment system, Duo integration, integrated Truemessenger

Truecaller has announced version 8.0 of its caller ID service and it is the biggest one yet. The company outlined the new features that will be coming with this update, some immediately and others at a later date.

The first one is the integration with Truemessenger. Truemessenger was a standalone SMS app for Android that would identify messages from unknown numbers and also had a built-in spam filter.

Oppo R11 could offer a dual camera on the back, to complement F3’s dual selfie cam

Oppo has had some innovative camera designs, but is relatively new to the dual camera field. The F3 Plus was announced just days ago with a dual selfie camera, but rumor has it that the Oppo R11 will bring two cameras to the back.

At this year’s MWC, the company brought the world’s first dual cam setup with 5x optical zoom (using a periscope system). It’s too early to tell, but a premium line like the R series could conceivably get such a high-end imaging setup.

The design is similar to the Oppo R9s (at least going by the image) and there will be a Plus model too – a 5.5″ Oppo R11 and a…

Huawei P10 gets its first update, brings camera-related fixes

The Huawei P10 has started receiving its first update. Arriving as build number VTR-LO9C432B113 and weighing in at 245MB, the update brings a couple of camera-related fixes, as well as optimizations for performance and stability.

An issue where the camera couldn’t launch with Google Voice has been fixed. Also fixed is the issue with the camera preview screen, which did not display correctly in certain situations.

The update doesn’t bump the Android OS version, which stays at 7.0. Security patch level also remains at February 1.

Green Oppo R9s launching on April 1

Over a couple of weeks after we spottedit, the Fresh Green color variant of the Oppo R9s has been officially confirmed. The device will go on sale later this week – April 1.

Pricing information is currently not known, but it shouldn’t be different from other R9s color options given that the red model, which was launched separately back in December last year also carried the same price tag.
