Finally an HTC flagship worth waiting for, with customizable sensors on the frame

There were attempts to clear it off as a conceptual piece that did “not represent any real product from HTC.” Well, after what seems like forever, and a few flagships later, more information has surfaced regarding the device, also being called the HTC U.

Google Pixel 2 might drop the headphone jack

Who would’ve predicted that the life of the 3.5mm headphone jack would become a hot topic by 2016 and would continue till 2017.

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’s new OS Fuchsia is Andromeda?”
