Nokia 7 Plus now receiving Android 9 Pie Beta 4.1 instead of expected stable release

Tuesday, September 11th, 2018

When Nokia sent out its last Android 9 Pie developer preview at the beginning of August, HMD Global CPO Juho Savikas proclaimed on Twitter that it would be the last one before the final stable version, due this month. The company must have hit a slight snag, as its now pushing out another point release even though the final build was expected this month.

 

A couple of tipsters let us know that Beta 4.1 (otherwise known as v3.190) was hitting their Nokia 7 Plus devices, including the September security patch among a few other improvements.

Assistant-launching microphone button removed from Pixel launcher in Android P DP5

Thursday, July 26th, 2018

Moving the Google search box to the bottom of the Pixel launcher was a divisive change, although it makes complete sense to me. From the moment the first developer preview of Android P was released, Google began messing around with unimportant things like the transparency of the launcher dock, but one useful little addition was that of a microphone icon in the search widget that could be used to summon the Assistant.

Android P gets a new auto-rotate icon in Developer Preview 5

Thursday, July 26th, 2018

Google just dropped the fifth developer preview of Android P and there aren't an awful lot of changes for us to pick through. That makes sense since it's the last beta before the final release later in the year, which we can expect to look very much like it does right now. The eagle-eyed among you may have noticed one small change, however, in the shape of a new auto-rotate icon.

Out with the old and in with the new.

OnePlus rolls out new Android P developer preview for OnePlus 6

Wednesday, July 18th, 2018

It's been a few weeks since the fourth Android P developer preview hit Google devices, but this is the first year that other OEMs are joining the dev preview fun. Among them is OnePlus, which has released several preview builds for its latest flagship phone. There's a new one today, which OP is calling "developer preview 3." Is that actually DP3 or DP4 in the Google naming scheme? No one knows, but it's new for OnePlus 6 owners.

Android P: ‘Turn off mobile data?’ quick setting prompt has disappeared in DP4

Tuesday, July 10th, 2018

Since Android 8.1 (even 8.0 on Pixel phones), the OS has had a divisive prompt that warns you if you toggle mobile data on or off using the quick settings toggle. Personally, I find this useful, since I never turn data off intentionally. If I do, it's probably by mistake, so this extra step is a good way of mitigating against that risk.

Many users were less enthused (check the comments) when this prompt was introduced, as it made toggling data that little bit more difficult.
