HD streaming support coming to OnePlus 5T, company confirms

Chinese smartphone manufacturer OnePlus has confirmed that they'll be pushing out an update that'll bring HD-streaming support on their latest OnePlus 5T flagship smartphone.

Sony Xperia XZ Premium arrives in Canada on August 15, or in September

Sony will release the Xperia XZ Premium in Canada soon. The device is already on sale in the US, where it's even received a $100 price cut recently. It will be out up north either on August 15, or in September. Two different reports came out on the matter today, and they don't agree on much. What is clear is that Amazon will be offering the unlocked model, and that we'll have to wait until it becomes available in order to find out how much it will cost.
