The first Android Go phones will bring affordable Oreo to MWC

The first Android Oreo (Go edition) phones will be revealed next week, Google has said, as it pushes its pared-back vision of Android for super-affordable handsets. Designed to drive pricing under the $50 mark in order to make smartphones more attainable in developing markets, Android Oreo (Go edition) - otherwise known as Android Go - strips out some of the platform's bloat in order to preserve usability on lower-spec hardware.

Bitcoin price trading just went live on Robinhood

Bitcoin prices may well jolt as major-player Robinhood launches their newest no-fee trading feature: cryptocurrency. The add-on to the Robinhood app and ecosystem was announced back on January 25th to some relatively major hurrah. Now, just under a month later, said feature was released in full. It is with this move that Bitcoin trading (and other cryptocurrency trading in general) goes mobile.

Cat S61 Android packs heat-vision, lasers, & MIL-SPEC toughness

An Android that can see in the dark and has a built-in laser sounds like something from a Terminator movie, but it's actually Caterpillar's new Cat S61 smartphone.

Final Galaxy S9 release-level pics and specs just leaked

Pictures of the Samsung Galaxy S9 and Samsung Galaxy S9 Plus have leaked the devices in their entirety. I mean basically everything you could possibly want to know about these devices, out there for the taking. It's an intense, insane, bonkers-level amount of information released at this point - though it's not as if we didn't expect such a set of data points and images. It's just days away from the release of both smartphones, at this point.

Huawei P20 prototype leak hints at curious design changes

Huawei P20 prototype leak hints at curious design changes

MWC 2018 is just a few days away but, as far as new phones are concerned, it’s expected to be a bit low key. Aside from Samsung’s big splash, of course. Many major OEMs are skipping the event, including Huawei. That doesn’t mean, of course, that Huawei doesn’t have a flagship ready. The Huawei P20 might just be a month away from its debut, but photos of a leaked prototype leave very little left to the imagination but with plenty of questions left unanswered.

BLU VIVO X brings four cameras to the mid-range table

BLU VIVO X brings four cameras to the mid-range table

Two heads are better than one, as they say, but why stop there? That is the line of thinking that BLU is citing for its latest VIVO X smartphone. And it isn’t referring to the figurative head of the phone, a.k.a. the CPU. That’s pretty much unimpressive here. In fact, most of the VIVO X will probably sound unimpressive. It’s real claim to fame will be its two dual cameras, front and back, that try to make the VIVO X a bit more interesting and worth its relatively low price.

LG K10, K8 2018 phones put the focus on photos

LG K10, K8 2018 phones put the focus on photos

LG may have said it’s tempering its smartphone frenzy, unlike Samsung, but that seems to only apply to its higher end phones. In addition to the LG V30 (2018), it will also be introducing two, actually four, new mid-range models as well. Carrying on its K series, the new K10 (2018) and K8 (2018) follow that pattern of small improvements. But for shutterbugs on a budget, both smartphones might have something to offer in terms of features and gimmicks, not necessarily quality.

These Giant HD Galaxy S9 images just leaked

If the massive amount of Samsung Galaxy S9 details that've leaked this month weren't enough already, today we've got some huge images. These images are far more monstrous than you could ever want or need - assuming you're not printing posters of the devices that are as tall as an adult gorilla. They're larger than you'd need them to be whilst looking on a smartphone, at a smartphone.

Snapchat redesign petition actually gets a response

Snapchat redesign petition actually gets a response

If you haven't noticed by now, the recent redesign launched for Snapchat hasn't gone over very well.

Facebook Messenger video calling gets a big new feature

Facebook has spent the last few years trying to turn Messenger into the communication platform. Many different features have been added to Messenger over the years, but one that seems crucial - the ability to add people to your in-progress video calls - has been missing since video calling launched back in 2015. That all changes today.
