Galaxy Note 8 renders show still rounded corners

The date is no longer a secret. Samsung itself has proudly announced that it will be holding an Unpacked event on 23rd August. And while it doesn’t mention it by name, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see Samsung’s not so subtle hints at a Galaxy Note 8 device. What Samsung hasn’t revealed, naturally, is how the “bigger” phablet will look. Thankfully, case maker Ghostek isn’t so shy about showing that off, revealing was looks to be simply a bigger Galaxy S8+.

Alexa is rolling out in Amazon’s shopping app for Android

Alexa is primarily accessed through Amazon's Echo products, but she has also made her way onto other devices over past months.

Note 8: Samsung Unpacked event in August confirmed

This afternoon invitations for the Samsung Galaxy Note 8 event were released to the press with a tagline: "Do bigger things." If that weren't enough to entice the public to get pumped up about the event itself, the silhouettes of the device and its new S Pen might. This event invite revealed the day of the event and the timing, too: August 23rd, 2017, at 11AM EDT (that's 11AM Eastern, New York time, 8AM Pacific.)

Moto Z2 Force US model tipped with stunted specs and smaller battery

The Moto Z2 Force may prove a disappointment for U.S. buyers if a new report is accurate. According to leaked marketing materials, the model sold in the U.S. will have more modest specs than the versions sold elsewhere, one example being the inclusion of only 4GB of RAM versus the 6GB everyone else will get. The battery, too, will shed considerable capacity according to the materials.

Google Motion Stills for Android is here: Why you need it

Last year, Google launched an app called Motion Stills for iOS users. Motion Stills worked in tandem with the iPhone's Live Photos feature, turning them into shareable GIFs and stabilizing them in the process. Of course, with no such Live Photos feature on Android, the app stayed exclusive to iOS devices - until today, that is.

Samsung Bixby videos show why the S8 assistant is special

Samsung's Bixby Voice may have taken longer than expected to reach the Galaxy S8, but now the company is wasting no time explaining just why it thinks its Assistant is better than Google or Apple's. In a new series of videos, Samsung has started digging through the functionality Bixby offers on the smartphone - and will also support on upcoming devices like the Galaxy Note 8 due to be released later in the year. Who knows, you might even resent the dedicated Bixby button a little less along the way.

OnePlus 5 911 reboot problem addressed in new update

It's been a pretty whirlwind week for some Android users, especially those who own a OnePlus 5. On Tuesday, a OnePlus 5 user alerted Reddit to the fact that his phone rebooted whenever he tried to call 911. This, as you can imagine, is not a good thing, because having a phone reboot is the last thing anyone needs when they're trying to get in touch with emergency services.

NewPipe – YouTube Android app with more controls and no Google

NewPipe – YouTube Android app with more controls and no Google

YouTube is arguably the biggest source of streaming multimedia, video or audio, on the Internet but its viewing experience on mobile, even on Google’s own Android, leaves much to be desired. We are almost at the mercy of how Google dictates mobile users should experience YouTube, which isn’t really that much compared to what you can do on the desktop. There are, however, a few enterprising and daring developers who are giving users a bit more control. Like this NewPipes app that even lets you slow down or speed up YouTube vids, whether Google allows it or not.

Meizu PRO 7 at TENAA – 10nm CPU, dual Sony sensors

Meizu PRO 7 at TENAA – 10nm CPU, dual Sony sensors

Meizu isn’t exactly one of the more popular smartphone brands outside of China but, for the past weeks, it has managed to pique market watchers’ curiosity. Not because it has banished all bezels (it still has some) or implemented an onscreen fingerprint scanner (it doesn’t). Instead, it is an odd curiosity because of the way it is implementing a niche “second screen” feature. Fortunately for Meizu fans, that won’t be the only interesting thing about it, at least based on this sighting at China’s TENAA agency.
