OPPO teases 125W super flash charge next week

OPPO teases 125W super flash charge next week

Let's face it. We're stuck with current battery technologies in smartphones, at least in the foreseeable future. Because of that, manufacturers are pretty much forced to push the limits of charging technologies instead, performing the delicate balancing act between speed and safety. Among smartphone manufacturers, Chinese companies are the brave ones that try to go beyond boundaries with some rather insane, and OPPO might just have the most insane charging speed to show off in just a few days.

Galaxy Fold 2 is probably delayed

Galaxy Fold 2 is probably delayed

Two smartphones will be competing for attention on Samsung's stage next month, even if only one of them will be immediately available. That said, earlier leaks suggested that Samsung will be adopting a rather novel schedule that will see a new smartphone launched for each month in the next three months. It seems, however, that the timeline might have been too optimistic and there is now word that Samsung's next foldable phone might be missing its September launch target by a whole month at the earliest.

Epic Games iOS app lets your face control game characters’ expressions

Epic Games iOS app lets your face control game characters’ expressions

Photorealistic games have more or less become a staple of modern games to the point that even smaller studios and indie developers would love to take a stab at it. While there are many tools, both free and expensive, that let game devs create mouth-watering 3D visuals, one aspect of 3D games still escapes the grasp of all but the biggest studios. Mocap, short for motion capture, is tricky and expensive, especially when taking into account believable and totally not-uncanny facial expressions. It turns out that Epic Games has a handy tool for recording facial expressions and all you really need is an iPhone.

Galaxy Tab S7+ could have two more surprises in store

Galaxy Tab S7+ could have two more surprises in store

Samsung has quite a lot packed for its Unpacked event next month and it won't just be about phones. The Galaxy Tab S7 and Galaxy Tab S7+ are poised to be more than just your regular annual Samsung tablet. Based on earlier leaked specs, this year's Android slates are poised to go head to head with Apple's iPad Pros not just in specs but especially in size. What those specs don't mention, however, are also important and at least one of the unspoken details might not be that reassuring.

Android 10 adoption numbers bring hope for the future

Android 10 adoption numbers bring hope for the future

We've stopped covering Android's distribution numbers every month for one simple reason. Last year, Google has stopped publishing those monthly figures, a change that some say was its way of hiding how poor Android adoption really is compared with iOS. Android updates have always been a sore point even for the most steadfast Android believer but it's not for the lack of trying. Google has recently disclosed how it plans to improve that situation but has also revealed how Android 10 may have been best-adopted release ever.

Android 11 will leave OEMs with fewer excuses for slow updates

Android 11 will leave OEMs with fewer excuses for slow updates

Every year at WWDC, Apple indirectly puts the Android world to shame when it reveals adoption numbers for its supported iOS versions. While things have certainly improved in the last two or three years, there is still much left to be desired. Part of the problem lies in the dynamics between Google as Android maker and manufacturers as Android implementers. The latter, of course, has the final word on when they would push out Android updates, big and small, but Android 11 will more or less force OEMs to fall in line with Google's push for more seamless and faster updates.

Google working on tablet experience, “Android Beyond Phones” soon

Google spoke up today about their future in Android and/or Chrome OS tablets.

But still, it has been acknowledged that Google is, indeed, "working on the tablet experience, both for users and for developers" according to a representative of the Android Engagement Team.

Xiaomi POCO F2 Pro Review : Budget cost, shockingly good macro camera

Xiaomi POCO F2 Pro Review : Budget cost, shockingly good macro camera

The POCO F2 Pro, or Pocophone F2 Pro, is a highly decent smartphone. It was released in May of 2020 running Android 10 with MIUI 11 inside. This device has a 6.67-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen up front with no camera to interrupt its rounded-corner rectangle face. This is one of the few smartphones to have ever been released with a mechanically operated pop-up front-facing camera module - and it comes in several colors, both wild and decent.

OnePlus Nord release date level leak spills the beans

OnePlus Nord release date level leak spills the beans

The OnePlus Nord was leaked today in images of both the front and back of the smartphone. This device looks to have a nearly full-coverage frontside display with a pill-shaped punch hole for two front-facing cameras.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 is rumored for launch at the same time as the Samsung Galaxy S20 in the very near future.

Google Image Search on mobile will soon display related trivia

Anyone who has experienced the Wikipedia Rabbit Hole will know first hand how dangerous it can be to have quick access to interconnected information. Even worse if such information is related to or contains visual representation in the form of photos and graphs. And yet that is exactly what Google will soon be offering to anyone searching for images on their mobile phones, giving them the information they never knew they wanted right at their fingertips, literally.
