Google Fuchsia dev team: Android, Palm, WebOS, Native Client, iOS

Google Fuchsia dev team: Android, Palm, WebOS, Native Client, iOS

Today we're having a look at the software team responsible for Google Fuchsia, a new operating system from Google. The initial commit file for this set of codes was made "6 weeks ago" by developer Petr Hosek. That first commit reads as follows: "Pink + Purple == Fuchsia (a new Operating System)". That's it! This operating system's code and its developers have a wide variety of connections to operating systems you may have had some experience with in the past - everything from iOS to the software run by the original Sidekick phone.

Nexus 2016 release date photos put function over form

Nexus 2016 release date photos put function over form

Google's 2016 Nexus smartphone set seems to follow the same rules as previous launches - in which Google is aiming for a top quality phone, not so much a phone that looks pretty. Google seems - in the photos we're seeing today - to be making sure this as-yet-unreleased smartphone is able to do two things: feel good to hold and function especially well. Why else would the bottom of the back of the phone be metal while the top 1/3rd of the back of the device is an unsightly reflective glass?

Xiaomi Mi Note 2 to have dual curved edge screen variant

Xiaomi Mi Note 2 to have dual curved edge screen variant

Curved is the new black, at least as far as screens go. With the curved Galaxy Note 7, Samsung is practically sending a message that its future flagship models will have the same non-flat surface. And while Chinese manufacturers are not exactly strangers to that design, Xiaomi, one of the most prominent among them, has so far held back. That is about to change if this Mi Note 2 leak is real, hinting that still to be announced phablet will, like its Samsung namesake, have a screen that curves at the side edges.

OnePlus 3 OTA update breaks things as much as it fixes

OnePlus 3 OTA update breaks things as much as it fixes

Two steps forward, one step back. That is perhaps an accurate way to describe the dance that OnePlus has been doing ever since it launched the OnePlus 3. Although it remains one of the hottest Android flagships this year, the OnePlus 3 has been beset by controversies and technical issues. And while OnePlus has been quick to respond, even patch up, the latter, its haste might be doing it harm as well. Like the latest OxygenOS 3.2.4 update that fixes an auto-reboot problem but also inadvertently breaks Android Pay in the process.

Nexus Sailfish leaked photos show an interesting design change

The expected final launch of Android 7.0 Nougat is fast approaching and, with it, the hopes of finally seeing the new 2016 Nexus smartphones in the flesh. As no solid dates have been set for either event, we will just have to make do with unofficial images of the smartphones. Luckily there are indeed such photos that give us some idea of what the HTC-made Nexus devices would look like. And suffice it to say, they might look quite intriguing.

Latest iPhone 7 leak reveals Space Black, dual cameras, Smart Connector

Latest iPhone 7 leak reveals Space Black, dual cameras, Smart Connector

With Apple expected to announce the iPhone 7 in early September, we continue to see purported leaked images showing potential new colors, dual cameras on the rear of the larger Plus device, and of the lack of a 3.5mm headphone jack. Another set of new images has surfaced this weekend, once again revealing a new, darker black color option, and a three-dot Smart Connector on the back.

2 new HTC Desire phones tipped to launch this quarter

2 new HTC Desire phones tipped to launch this quarter

We haven't seen a lot from HTC's Desire line in the last year, with the most recent being the US debut of the Desire 530, but according to a new report, the company has not one but two new devices coming before the end of the current quarter. The two phones are said to be the Desire 10 Lifestyle mid-ranger, and the more high-end Desire 10 Pro. It's not clear if HTC will unveil these at IFA 2016, but there's a strong chance they'll be available by the end of September.

iPhone 7 second speaker reportedly fake: Symmetry not stereo

iPhone 7 second speaker reportedly fake: Symmetry not stereo

Apple's reported decision to drop the iPhone 7 headphone socket would, so the leaks suggested, soften the blow by delivering more powerful sound from the handset overall, but new information suggests that may not actually be the case. Although leaks from multiple sources have shown the headphone jack-free bottom edge of the iPhone 7 having a pair of speaker grills, flanking either side of the Lightning socket, there's now chatter that the whole thing might be style not function.

Note 7 Nougat update in 2-3 months says Samsung (but don’t hold your breath)

Note 7 Nougat update in 2-3 months says Samsung (but don’t hold your breath)

Samsung's Galaxy Note 7 will launch running Marshmallow, but the Korean firm expects to have Android 7.0 Nougat ready in just a couple of months, not that it'll likely help US users. The 5.7-inch phablet is already up for preorder, with a US release on August 19, but a combination of factors will keep an Android OS update from appearing for some time yet.

HP Elite x3 ads, Workspace app pop up to “reinvent mobility”

HP Elite x3 ads, Workspace app pop up to “reinvent mobility”

HP will soon be launching the Elite x3, probably one of the most interesting Windows 10 Mobile device so far (which is telling or damning of the platform). Naturally, it is revving up the marketing machine to convince the market, especially enterprise customers, that this huge, expensive smartphone is the smartphone to beat. And not because it has oodles of mobile apps for users to enjoy (it doesn't) but the exact opposite: it's a smartphone designed for very serious business.

HTC 10 apparently dropped by T-Mobile back in July

HTC 10 apparently dropped by T-Mobile back in July

HTC just can't seem to catch a break, at least not in the smartphone industry. And it's not for the lack of trying. The HTC 10 is arguably one of the better flagship devices this year, and yet it isn't doing wonders for HTC's coffers. And not for T-Mobile either. Apparently, the carrier has stopped offering the HTC 10 almost a month ago, which means that it only carried the smartphone a little less than two months after it launched.
