Essential Phone “a few weeks” away insists Rubin

Essential Phone “a few weeks” away insists Rubin

The Essential Phone may have missed Andy Rubin's first ship date promise, but the "Father of Android" now insists the smartphone is just a few weeks away. Essential made headlines back in May with its unusually notched OLED display, modular accessory connectivity, and the promise of near-unmodified Android. However, it then made a second splash - and not one the company was presumably hoping for - when it failed to arrive according to the original schedule.

5 Reasons it’s good to be a Motorola smartphone user again

As we approach the release of a couple more Motorola-made smartphones on the 25th, it's become a good time to be a fan of the mobile MOTO brand again. The staple brand name in mobile electronics had a few years of ups and downs - switching parent companies twice over - but they've come home once more. Owned by Lenovo and moving forward with a unique and powerful phone lineup, Motorola's once again hit their smartphone stride.

Nokia 8 prototype says hello in leaked images

With HMD Global now heading up phone development, the revived Nokia brand has seen a few releases already. None of those releases have been quite as noteworthy as the rumored Nokia 8, however. The Nokia 8 is said to be the high-end flagship smartphone we've been waiting for from Nokia, and today we're seeing it (or at least something like it) in a series of leaked images.

Google Pi Intercom: How to build your own Google Home

Google Pi Intercom: How to build your own Google Home

Who said going retro is only for games? Vinyl is back in fashion so why couldn’t other electronics be as well? That is probably the thought going through the mind of MisterM over at instructables when he started this “Google Pi Intercom” project. The name might be a bit misleading, because it is essential a makeshift Google Home that is activated by pressing a button. It’s not a two-way communication device, unless you consider talking to Google Assistant two-way communication.

Firefox Focus celebrates 1M Android downloads with new features

Firefox Focus celebrates 1M Android downloads with new features

Firefox Focus is a bit of an odd duck. It launched first on iOS, where Firefox itself launched last. It had very limited features and a singled-minded focus on privacy. And yet it seems to have struck a chord with many mobile users, even on Android where the app has been around for less than a month. It managed to rake in 1 million downloads already in that time, encouraging Mozilla to roll out even more futures for the simple browser.

Google Calendar on Android finally gets this feature

Google Calendar on Android finally gets this feature

There are just some gestures that have become so natural that we’ve come to expect them almost everywhere, especially on smartphones. Pinching (not squeezing), flicking, panning, and even dragging and dropping. In the same vein, we become painfully aware when they’re not there. Like being able to drag and drop events in a calendar app just to change the time. The long wait for Android users is over because, after years of wishing, Google Calendar finally got exactly that feature.

LG G4 Android 7.0 Nougat update available for some models

LG G4 Android 7.0 Nougat update available for some models

Some, in fact most, manufacturers have short term memories. They tend to forget devices that sometimes aren’t even that old. Even those that are just 2 years old. Fortunately, LG, who prides itself for being a good Android citizen, hasn’t forgotten yet. Owners of the LG G4 have received notifications to upgrade to the latest Android 7.0 Nougat version. But if you still haven’t gotten it yet, you can manually force your way into Nougat, provided you have the right model.

Facebook patents a modular device that could also be a phone

Facebook patents a modular device that could also be a phone

Is the dream of the modular phone dead? Not if you ask Lenovo and Motorola, though their concept of a modular phone is not exactly what you might have in mind. Closer to that dream that went down with Google’s Project Ara is something that Facebook has in mind. Yes, Facebook has an idea for a modular phone. Or rather, it has patented what is technically a generic “modular electromechanical device” that, in at least one permutation, could also function as a phone.

Galaxy Note 8 renders show still rounded corners

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. The personal assistant is, for example, available on the Kindle Fire tablets, and it has also made its way onto iPhone via Amazon's iOS shopping app. Those on Android have had access to a standalone Alexa app, but that's just the start: this week Amazon is rolling out its personal assistant in its Android shopping app.

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.)
