This week in Android: Here's looking at Q, kid
This week, we dropped our Nokia 9 PureView review, followed by our Samsung Galaxy S10e review later in the week. In the middle of the week, Google announced the first official Android Q beta, and we still don’t know what dessert it’ll be named after. We do know what phones will have the beta, and all the new features that are coming. Some of our favorites include a new sharing menu, easier Wi-Fi sharing, and even a desktop mode! Will you be installing it?
As if that wasn’t enough, we have a new concept phone from vivo, potential specifications for Motorola’s upcoming foldable, and bad news for the Pixelbook and Pixel Slate.
Let’s start off with the big news of the week:
We will see six iterations of Android Q coming up this year, and here is the timeline for them.
Google released the first official beta for Android Q which includes a revamp of the sharing menu and a new AVI codec.
But wait, there’s more!
HMD’s first flagship of the year have five camera sensors on the back, so it must take great pictures, right? Right?!
And finally, all the rest of the news
Our Samsung Galaxy S10e review is in and it has the same shortcoming at the Galaxy S10 Plus — the camera. But, there’s a workaround for it that makes things better.
Motorola’s upcoming RAZR phone might not be able to stand toe-to-toe with other foldables on the specs front. There’s also a question as to whether foldables are worth it at all.
There’s a new concept phone from vivo that has no ports and no buttons. But is there enough innovation to make that worth it?
Here’s the rest of the news for the week
One of the downsides of the punch hole camera is there isn’t much room for other sensors, like iris scanners, so face unlock security took a hit.
Our review of the Redmi Note 7 is in and it is the phone that our reviewer calls “the best phone you can buy for $200.”
Fitbit is attacking the budget smartwatch crowd hard. Is it the best value out there?
