ASUS ZenFone 6 Android 10 update inspires some confidence

ASUS ZenFone 6 Android 10 update inspires some confidence

ASUS is not a name that would immediately pop up in conversations about smartphones but it has two killer phones this year. The rather eccentric ZenFone 6 puts a new spin, or flip rather, to the popup camera design problem while the ASUS ROG Phone II definitely puts the game in gaming smartphones. But while ASUS has made impressive hardware this year, it has yet to prove it can pull off something similar with software. It may be trying to do exactly that with an Android 10 update rolling out to the ZenFone 6 now.

OnePlus 6 Android 10 update rolls out with a bug and a removed feature

True to its promise, OnePlus is rolling out Android 10 updates to its supported smartphones. After a brief beta testing period, the OnePlus 6 and OnePlus 6 are finally getting the stable version of OxygenOS 10.0 with Android 10. That beta period may have been too short, however, as the update for the OnePlus 6 was immediately pulled out for a while due to a bug that should have been fixed before the official announcement was made.

LG V20 Android 9 update available now in Korea

LG V20 Android 9 update available now in Korea

LG was once regarded as a dreamer, innovator, and good Android citizen so it's almost tragic to see its slow fall from grace. It needs, however, to be called out for its unimpressive rollout of Android updates, if only to urge it to do better. Some of those may have reached LG's ears and have, indeed, caused a favorable change. The company is now reportedly rolling out an Android 9 update for the LG V20 after it was believed to have abandoned the phone completely.

Samsung One UI 2.0: Key differences you’ll notice

"Stock Android" is a term often lauded in the tech world. Android the way Google intended it to be, without bloatware and other confusing modifications, seems to be a standard many users want. Diverging from that standard tends to draw some lukewarm reviews.

Pixel 4 USB-C video output exists but is disabled in source code

Pixel 4 USB-C video output exists but is disabled in source code

Phone screens are getting larger, enough for them to be the only kind of computer some people use. At the same time, however, smartphones are also becoming more capable that they can become veritable computers or media centers if you attach an external display. For the majority of smartphones these days, that often means "projecting" a phone's screen via Chromecast or even Miracast but there are a few that do support video output via their USB-C port. The Pixel 4 should have been part of the latter group but it turns out that, for one reason or another, Google chose to disable it at the deepest kernel level.

Huawei phones could get Google apps again as trade licenses loom

Huawei might receive an early Christmas gift in the next few weeks, presuming the US government makes good on President Trump's promise to grant a number of exceptions to US companies wanting to do business with Huawei. As many as 260 requests have been filed, asking a license to do trade with the Chinese manufacturer, one of which is believed to be Google. If granted, this could mean that Huawei phones will be able to ship Google Play apps and services again, at least for a short period of time.

Nubia Z20 teardown hints at difficult repairs

Nubia Z20 teardown hints at difficult repairs

Foldable phones are one of the hot topics in mobile tech today but, for a short while, that wasn't the only eccentric new design in the industry. Dual-screen phones also offer more display than their regular single-screen counterparts but for a different purpose, one that wants to banish bezels on the front by relocating everything to the back. Of this rare breed of phones, the Nubia Z20 is perhaps the only one that ever reached US shores officially. You might, however, want to hold off if you're that type that needs to have your phone repaired often.

Samsung W20 5G could be the foldable clamshell you can’t get

Samsung W20 5G could be the foldable clamshell you can’t get

It might not be common knowledge outside of China and Korea but Samsung is one of the last few phone manufacturers that still makes flip phones, a.k.a. clamshell phones. These phones aren't made available outside of those two markets, which is why few know about them. It's next one, however, could actually make headlines if recent speculation is on the mark. According to those, a so-called W20 5G, probably the SM-W2020, might not only be a flip phone but also one with a foldable screen.

Mario Kart Tour multiplayer beta arrives in December, but only if you pay up

Mario Kart Tour multiplayer beta arrives in December, but only if you pay up

Back in September, Mario Kart Tour launched for iOS and Android without a component many consider critical to the Mario Kart experience: multiplayer. Racing against other humans is one of the main draws of the Mario Kart franchise as a whole, so it was definitely strange to see Mario Kart Tour launch without it. Nintendo will be fixing that particular oversight in December, launching a real-time multiplayer beta at some point during the month.
