When Samsung announced the arrival of two versions of its latest Galaxy Note — the 6.3-inch Note 10 and the 6.8-inch Note 10+ — it signalled a small departure from previous years. In spirit, the Galaxy Note 10+ is the true successor to Samsung’s iconic big-screen phone line, while the standard Note 10 seems like something Samsung’s bean counters dreamed up as a way of broadening the market for the company’s latest high-end phone.

While Google still hasn’t set an official date for its annual spring product showcase, thanks to inside sources and a recent APK teardown, we may have just gotten a preview of some new camera features set to debut on the Pixel 4.
Huawei has confirmed at the 2019 IFA conference in Berlin that although the Mate 30 series will come with Android 10 pre-installed, the devices will not host any Google apps when the phone launches on September 19.
Google previously confirmed the app exclusion after months of turmoil amid US President Trump's allegations of Huawei infrastructure being used to spy on citizens, resulting in a ban on US companies (like Google) working with Chinese companies (like Huawei).
The name says it all: LG G8X ThinkQ Dual Screen. It’s an updated LG G8 phone with an additional screen that effectively operates as a second device tethered to the main one. In a briefing at IFA in Berlin, the company framed the dual-screen phone as the inevitable solution to our multitasking inclinations. After spending a few minutes using the G8X, I’m wondering if I should be multitasking more.
It’s here! Android 10, once known as Android Q, is finding its way to Pixel phones, with other handsets getting the update when manufacturers get around to it. When you get Android 10 on your device, these are the new features and goodies you can start playing around with.
Nokia announced two new mid-range smartphones today, the Nokia 6.2 and Nokia 7.2, and it’s a departure from last year’s welcomed solo outing. 2018’s Nokia 7.1 was very nearly an ideal mid-range smartphone. It had a slick, yet understated design, ran a clean version of Android, and featured better cameras than you’d expect for the price (and it even had a headphone jack). The only thing that really held it back was mediocre battery life.
Those hackers Google’s researchers sussed out earlier this week apparently went after more than just iPhone users. Microsoft’s operating system along with Google’s own were also targeted, according to Forbes, in what some reports are calling a possibly state-backed effort to spy on the Uighur ethnic group in China.
Google has been all about making account switches easier over the past few weeks.
Both Google Maps and Drive added handy gestures to make this process easier, which is great for those of us who use multiple accounts on the reg.
Now Android users can bask in this gesture glory on Gmail, too.
After being placed on a so-called Entity List by the U.S. federal government, severely restricting its access to American technology, Chinese tech giant and world’s second-largest smartphone manufacturer Huawei is investigating using the Russian-made Aurora operating system as a replacement for Google’s Android OS on its mobile devices, Reuters reported on Tuesday.
When a phone retails at $1,699, it can’t just be good, it has to be superb. It needs to deliver features you don’t get on other phones, maintain excellence across all the standard metrics, and be able to handle pretty much any situation, whether it’s work, play, or just a bit of movie watching. And while there are a few things I wish Samsung had included on its latest big-screen flagship, the Galaxy Note 10+ is damn near perfect.
After more than a decade of sugary monikers, Google is finally ending Android’s dessert-themed naming scheme now that Android Q has officially become Android 10.
Android Q has been in public beta for a few months now, but we're still yet to see the official release. Or a title.
Android Pie was unleashed on the world on August 7 2018, so its successor can't be too far off.
With that in mind, its time to make a final plea for the version name. Quince, dammit.
