Galaxy S20, Galaxy Note 20 One UI 3.1 update is rolling out

It used to be the case that owners of Samsung's Galaxy phones would have to wait indefinitely before they get any news about updates. The new Samsung, however, has been more religious in pushing out updates, both on high-end as well as mid-range Galaxy A models. In fact, it didn't take too long for Samsung to announce that its One UI 3.1 user experience, which debuted on the Galaxy S21 series last month, is already heading out to last year's Galaxy S20 and Galaxy Note 20 families.

Google Fi adds more mid-range Motorola phones to its team

Google Fi adds more mid-range Motorola phones to its team

Google would have probably preferred if its users went all-in on its Internet services, mobile network, and phones but it knows it doesn't always get all three. Even those subscribed to its Google Fi service might not be big fans of Google's own Pixel handsets. To be a decent carrier, Google Fi has to offer a few more phones from other brands and it is now expanding its Motorola offering with three new mid-range handsets for every need and budget.

Google Pay adds digital wallet parking fee and transit options

Google Pay adds digital wallet parking fee and transit options

This week Google Pay added a new wave of options for paying for parking fees and transit around the world. While it's likely Google had connections with the transit industry and local governments for parking fees in the works already, now (more than ever) it's high time these and other transactions moved away from the transfer of paper and metal money. With Google Pay on both Android and iOS devices, all the payments are digital.

Moto G30 and Moto G10 announced as new mid-range options

Motorola is probably the new Nokia, although HMD Global is definitely catching up to the number of nearly indistinguishable handsets it launches in the market. Under the Moto G brand, Motorola has been putting out phone after phone after phone, promising premium features at accessible prices. Motorola is announcing in Europe not one but two such phones, including a Moto G10 that, unfortunately, pales in comparison to what was previously leaked as the more premium "no".

Galaxy A52 5G leak leaves no spec unturned

Galaxy A52 5G leak leaves no spec unturned

The Galaxy A51 5G was last year's unexpected star in the smartphone market, almost tying with its more expensive cousins from the Galaxy S line due to its price value. Naturally, Samsung wants to repeat that success and repeat it does with two versions of the Galaxy A52. Thanks to this latest leak, however, there will be no surprises for the Galaxy A52, both LTE and 5G models, and they are pretty much the incremental upgrades you would expect from a device that Samsung wants to milk until it's dry.

Android 12 “Snow Cone” might change how stock Android works

Android 12 “Snow Cone” might change how stock Android works

It seems that the next version of Android will be its biggest one yet. An earlier leak showed how Android 12 will make some rather substantial changes to the notification panel and Quick Settings tiles but that was apparently just the tip of the iceberg. The rest of that iceberg is slowly but surely getting exposed, painting a picture of a next-gen Android that could be changing how people use the platform, especially the stock version of Android, practically catching up with what other manufacturers have already been doing for years.

iPhone 13 could use Always-On Display for clock, battery

iPhone 13 could use Always-On Display for clock, battery

The iPhone X back in 2017 was the first to fulfill the long-rumored move from LCD screens to OLED panels for Apple's iPhones. OLED technology has a couple of advantages over LCDs but one of the main ones remained unused in iPhones, at least so far. That could change in the iPhone 13, or at least the Pro models, which will employ new display technology that, together with OLED panels, can finally bring some Always-On Display or AOD functionality to iPhones.

Surface Duo Android 11 update coming just before Android 12 launch

Surface Duo Android 11 update coming just before Android 12 launch

Microsoft has had many hardware ambitions, few of which actually bore long-lasting fruits. It's quite reasonable, then, that some were cautiously optimistic about its most ambitious one yet, the dual-screen Surface Duo. It was also unsurprising when Microsoft's actual implementation and post-sales performance left much to be desired, like its promised regular updates for the Android device. Case in point is the Android 11 that is still fortunately coming but probably just a month before Android 12 becomes available.
