No joke in this recap of the news of April 1, but a new step in the dismantling of the ADSL copper network of Orange. The Pixel 6a also gives news, with a stolen photo confirming its design. Finally, Samsung announces the launch of an ambitious self-repair program for its smartphones.
Orange is slowly preparing its transition after the copper network
After the announcement of the dismantling of its copper network at the beginning of the year, Orange is now taking action. Six municipalities in France, each fully eligible for fiber, will no longer be able to subscribe to a new ADSL offer from operators. The objective for Orange is to assess how the transition is going for users, before starting the gargantuan work that awaits it.

How often before the release of a smartphone, a picture of the Pixel 6a box has leaked on the web.

The phone therefore looks a lot like its Pixel 6 and 6 Pro counterparts, with two cameras housed in the horizontal photo module.

You will soon be able to repair your Galaxy S20 and S21 yourself
Starting this summer, Samsung will provide US users with spare parts, tools and guides to help them repair their smartphones themselves.

It will then be possible to replace the screen, the rear face or the USB-C charging port of your smartphone.
