This week Google unveiled a massive rebranding of Android, modernizing the colors, wordmark, and even the iconic bugdroid. As part of the change, Android will no longer use dessert names for new OS versions, and Android Q will now be known as Android 10.

On the other side of the world, we got a tour of HUAWEI’s $1.5 billion headquarters in Shenzhen, China. We heard first-hand what HUAWEI’s plans for the future are, including 5G, HarmonyOS, internet-of-things devices, and of course, smartphones.

As for reviews, this week we pushed out reviews for the Samsung Galaxy Note 10 Plus, the Redmi K20, and the JBL Link Bar all-in-one smartspeaker.
