Smartphone News Byte: BlackBerry Plans More Layoffs

by Wochit 1:04 mins

The ailing mobile phone maker BlackBerry is eyeing additional layoffs beyond the 5,000 announced during its last fiscal year, says the Wall Street Journal. According to a report in China Business News, a recruitment firm that works with a Foxconn plant in Henan Province has begun a large-scale recruitment of workers for production of Apple's next-gen phone. Though the report refers to the product as the "iPhone 6," this appears to be guesswork, as there is no indication of a model number confirmation from Foxconn. According to Mark Gurman of 9to5Mac, Apple is testing a feature called "Mogul" that allows the iPhone to record video at a super-fast and precise rate -- 120 frames per second. This would allow users to make slow-motion films, a feature already present in competitor phones like the Samsung Galaxy S4 and other sports cameras.
