This new set of tablets is rumored to roll out at the same time, at Samsung's next Galaxy Unpacked event, right alongside the Samsung Galaxy Note 20, Galaxy Z Fold 2, and Galaxy Z Flip 5G. That's quite the collection of devices, and certainly a bigger lineup than any recent event held by an Android-toting smart device company.

Microsoft acquires Surface Duo Android dev house for future work

Microsoft acquires Surface Duo Android dev house for future work

It's not uncommon for tech companies to put out products that never get a sequel, either because it didn't become popular or didn't sell well or even both. Sometimes, those one-off products don't even get their due support as far as customer service or, in the case of computing devices, software updates go. Consumers look for signs that a company is invested in a product beyond just launching and selling and then forgetting about it. Microsoft's latest business move might exactly be that sign that the company is in for the long haul when it comes to its most ambitious Android smartphone yet.

Google Play Protect now treats AnTuTu like spyware

There are still debates on the usefulness not to mention the accuracy of benchmarking apps but now AnTuTu has an even bigger problem to deal with.

After it got removed from Google Play Store earlier this year, the Android maker's Play Protect security platform is now treating the app as something dangerous, effectively scaring off users from trying to install it.

OnePlus Nord launch might not just be online but also in AR

OnePlus Nord launch might not just be online but also in AR

As a smaller company in a sea of big fish, OnePlus is used to doing more with less. Its launch events aren't exactly grand and can even be considered more "grassroots" than large corporate press parties. It does, however, always been more ambitious and daring with those exactly because it can afford to be more flexible and unorthodox. It isn't, for example, unfamiliar with holding events online but since everyone's doing online launches this year, it will reportedly put a hi-tech twist to the OnePlus Nord's debut.

Pixel 5 development tipped to still be in flux despite leaks

Pixel 5 development tipped to still be in flux despite leaks

The Pixel 4a is terribly delayed and, if things happen in order, the Pixel 5 might come even much later than usual. Either that or both phones will launch side by side, which is an equally strange situation. There have been very little in the way of leaks about the Pixel 5 aside from its probably mid-range specs. Renders of what is claimed to be the Pixel 5 and its dubious nature has sparked discussion on the rather uncertain situation that the phone's development is currently in right now.
