Chinese phone maker ZTE has designed a concept phone that features two display notches. Called the ZTE “Iceberg,” the phone features an all-glass unibody construction and is up for an award under the “Product” discipline category at the iF Design Award 2018.

“The ZTE Iceberg uses a seamless glass connection technique to combine two pieces of glass as one unibody, which makes the phone resemble a fragment of ice,” the device’s description reads on the iF Design Award website. “The four corners of the phone are transparent to reveal the essential beauty of the glass material. The effect is beautiful and mysterious.”

The Moto G6 series might be released in May

  The Moto G6 series might be released in May Motorola’s popular and inexpensive G series of phones is due for an update, and rumors increasingly point toward some new models arriving very soon.&nbsp;Pages on Fry’s website, which have since been pulled, indicated the phones would be released in the middle of the May. They’ll likely be announced sometime before that.

The ZTE Iceberg is a new concept phone the company is supposedly working on, and it features two notches , raised glass corners, and a smart connector. Two is better than one? ZTE ' s apparently making a phone with two notches because of course they are.

Notches on displays are becoming more popular thanks to Apple’s iPhone X. However, the physical feature has started a debate on whether it’s a good design choice. As consumers argue over the notch, ZTE decided to place two notches on its latest concept phone. Regardless of what people think of display notches, ZTE’s Iceberg phone does look elegant. Also, having two notches instead of one gives the handset a symmetrical look, which is a bit more aesthetically pleasing.

The two notches on the display house front-facing speakers, which should be great for users who want a better listening experience when viewing content or playing games without headphones. The notch on top of the display also has the earpiece speaker and an array of front-facing sensors. On the back, the ZTE Iceberg has a circular rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and a set of dual cameras. It is also said to have support for wireless charging.

Instagram tests its counterpart to Snapchat's friend codes

  Instagram tests its counterpart to Snapchat's friend codes Instagram's tendency to shadow Snapchat features now extends to the way you find new people to follow.&nbsp;The company has confirmed to TechCrunch that it's testing Nametags, a not-too-subtle riff on Snapcodes. As reader Genady Okrain discovered, the feature lets you create a custom tag using emoji patterns (which can be based on augmented reality selfies) for future sharing. You can't actually scan or share them right now, but there isn't much mystery as to how they'll work -- you'd point your phone camera at a Nametag to add someone without typing their name or waiting for a request.

ZTE ’ s dual-notched phone concept is creeping closer to reality. ZTE must not be listening, because it designed a new smartphone that features not one but two notches , via IF World Design Guide.

ZTE was probably thinking “two is always better than one” when designing its new concept phone , and deciding to add two notches . The phone may come next year, but there’ s no guarantee it will ever become more than just a concept .

The bottom portion of the device’s back also appears to have a smart connector of some kind. Perhaps this would allow users to attach accessories to modify or add features to the handset. It’s possible that users could snap on a more powerful speaker or add a peripheral to take better photos and videos. It’s a bit reminiscent of Motorola’s Moto Mods connector for its Moto Z line of Android phones, as pointed out by The Verge.

The ZTE Iceberg is listed as having an “after 2018” launch date with a development time of 13-24 months. Needless to say, this phone won’t be coming out soon. The handset is also listed as having Asia, Europe and North America as its target regions. “Iceberg” may just be a codename for the device and it could be called something else if ZTE decides to manufacture and release the phone to consumers. Unfortunately, no information on any of its internal specs was shared.

Toyota promotes talking vehicle technology .
A big part of vehicles becoming truly driverless is them eventually having the capability to communicate with other vehicles in the vicinity and various elements of infrastructure.&nbsp;&nbsp;The Japanese auto giant is looking to get a lead over its rivals by getting its own version of the technology accepted first to give it the very best chance of becoming the standard used by everyone. After all, at some point all the vehicles on the road will have to communicate with each other and that means the need for a recognized industry standard.
