You can now help Google deliver a better Pixel this year

The first ever made by Google smartphones finally came out last year as the Pixel and Pixel XL. Google’s phone was well received by the media and enthusiasts and almost everybody who got the device in their hands sang praises, ready to overlook the few flaws because the phone offered excellent screens, good performance, great build quality and a clean Android 7.0 Nougat experience. But no smartphone is perfect, and Google clearly understands its Pixel wasn’t either. So, Krishna Kumar, Product Lead for the Pixel family, took to the Pixel community forums to seek feedback on the current generation of Pixel devices that could help in designing the next Pixel.  Continue reading

Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ color variants leaked along with pricing

Samsung has made it pretty clear that we wouldn’t be seeing the Galaxy S8 at MWC but it will reveal the official unveiling date at its MWC event.

So for now, we’re stuck with leaks and rumours and today we have one, and its new, at least.

Google’s new OS Fuchsia is Andromeda?

If you were to dial your time machines back to August 2016 (.. or you know, just use Google’s advanced search tools), you’d find a ton of articles about Google’s new OS named Fuchsia. It was speculated to be the merger of Android and Chrome OS we have all been hearing about for … very long now I think. Then there were rumors about a new OS called Andromeda around September which got covered even more extensively. Now a new article is circulating around on the web speculating Fuchsia and Andromeda are one and the same. Continue reading

Google is asking for your suggestions to fix Allo

You probably still remember Allo right? That new smart messaging app from Google? Yes, it was supposed to supersede Hangouts and become Android’s answer to iMessage. Such hopes. Turned out, it couldn’t even compete with lesser known apps like Viber or WeChat let alone Whatsapp. Allo was as simple a messenger as it could have been, and not in a good Whatsapp like way. It was bare bones except for the integrated Google Assistant which was fun, initially. Continue reading

Samsung will provide another 60 million OLED panels to Apple

The relationship between Apple and Samsung is more than that of a rival, in fact, Samsung has such relations with a lot of its rivals which end up using arts manufactured by Samsung in their products to compete with Samsung. iPhones are no different and they’ll now be more dependent on Samsung than before. Last year Apple placed an order for 100 million 5.5-inch OLED panels from Samsung to be used in the upcoming iPhone 8, with the value being estimated at $2.59 billion. Now they have ordered an additional 60 million panels.  Continue reading

Google may enable Google Assistant on non Pixel devices

The Google Assistant arrived last year with the first Google branded smartphones as an exclusive feature, however, it didn’t remain so, at least officially. In fact, developers managed to find a way to enable the Assistant on the Nexus 6P even before the first Pixel was shipped. Seeing how easy it was to just enable the Google Assistant on any other smartphone it was speculated that its official exclusivity to Pixel was only for a while. That speculation could turn out to be true sooner than expected. The LG G6 is said to be arriving with the Google Assistant and now an update to the Google App suggests that the AI powered assistant could make its way onto even more devices. Continue reading
