Android fans, this week brought us last minute details about the Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P; we’ve got the first official look at the BlackBerry Priv (formerly known as Venice); LG joined the metal club with the Class; Xiaomi introduced its new $200 flagship; we’ve got our best looks at the upcoming LG V10 and HTC’s One A9; and Samsung introduced the consumer version of the Gear VR.

The biggest week in the Android calendar is coming. New devices, a new Android version, and perhaps some surprises? Oh my! It’s like Christmas eve, and we’re all kids trying to sneak a peek. Though, truth is, Google did a lousy job hiding the presents this year, so we already know what to expect. (If you’re curious, check out the Nexus rumor roundup.) Join us from Tuesday as we analyze everything.

This week Josh attended the Oculus Connect developer conference in LA and brought you his impressions of the Gear VR and the Oculus Touch controller. One thing is clear: VR technology is ready to break into mainstream. Between Oculus, Samsung’s Gear VR, Google’s low-fi Cardboard, Sony’s PlayStation VR, Microsoft’s HoloLens, and HTC’s Vive, the ecosystem is already growing fast. Will 2016 be the year when our VR dreams finally turn into reality? It’s about time!
