  • BlackBerry’s WorkLife Persona app makes it easier to use your own device for work [APK Download]

    Many businesses have to offer their staff work phones so they can get stuff done. This often leads to carrying two phones around, which can be a bit of a pain. One way of solving that issue, as well as being slightly less wasteful, is to introduce a B…

  • Galaxy Note 8 Emperor Edition could offer 6GB of RAM and 256GB storage

    The Galaxy Note 8 Emperor Edition will be limited to Asia.

    If a recent rumor out of Weibo is to be believed, Samsung will launch a special edition of the Galaxy Note 8 in its home market. Dubbed the Galaxy Note 8 Emperor Edition, the phone will feature 6GB of RAM and 256GB storage. Samsung is set to launch the special edition alongside the standard model, which is expected to feature 6GB of RAM and 64GB storage.

    The leakster also mentions that the Emperor Edition will be debuting in China following its availability in South Korea. The variant is unlikely to be sold outside of Asian markets, but as SamMobile notes, Samsung may launch a Galaxy Note 8 model with 6GB of RAM and 128GB storage in North America, Europe, and South America with a price tag in the vicinity of $1,100.

    Other rumored specs of the Galaxy Note 8 include dual 12MP cameras at the back, a 6.3-inch Infinity Display, Snapdragon 835 chipset, and a 3300mAh battery. The device is expected to be offered in three color …

  • Android Octopus: Are animals the new sweet treats?

    Could Android 8.0 Octopus become a thing?

    In sensible, functional terms, it’s probably the least important thing about a new version of Android. Yet each year, there’s intense speculation around what the new nickname of the next release will be. Google — including prominent Googlers like Hiroshi Lockheimer — play into the hype, teasing fans with cryptic confectionery references. The result is a predictable crescendo of hype in the month running up to the launch of each new version. Normally, by the time the final developer preview drops, we know the nickname.

    Yet this year, there’s been no Oreo or Oatmeal Cookie or Ontbijtkoek announcement — which, admittedly, could mean just about anything. Maybe Nabisco is driving a hard bargain, and that Android Oreo deal is taking a bit longer to hammer out. Maybe Google wants to make a bigger splash when the final version of O drops, likely later in August.

    Or maybe, just maybe, the days of Android “sweet treats” are over, …

  • Xiaomi rolls out a smart speaker with 360-degree audio sensing for $45

    The Mi AI Speaker has an array of six microphones and ‘excellent sound quality.’

    Xiaomi is the latest company to launch a smart speaker. Announced at the MIUI 9 event, the Mi AI Speaker has a design aesthetic that makes it looks like a miniature version of Xiaomi’s air purifier.

    Controls for music playback are located at the top, and the speaker has six microphones for 360-degree audio sensing, and audio beam forming. The Mi AI Speaker has two audio drivers, with Xiaomi touting “excellent audio quality.”

    Along with the ability to stream music, audio books, children stories, and live radio, the Mi AI Speaker will be able to hook into other services through plugins, giving customers the ability to take calls, get notification alerts and reminders (a feature that is yet to come to the Google Home), and be reminded of upcoming calendar events.

    The Mi AI Speaker will retail in China for the equivalent of $45 (¥299), and like most of Xiaomi’s ecosystem products, it’s unlikely …

  • Xiaomi brings dual cameras to the budget segment with the Mi 5X

    The Mi 5X offers the same camera setup as the Mi 6 for half the cost.

    Xiaomi switched up its dual camera strategy with the Mi 6, offering a phone with a standard 12MP sensor paired with a secondary 12MP telephoto lens. The company is now bringing the same camera configuration to the budget segment with its latest phone, the Mi 5X. The Mi 5X also offers 2x lossless zoom, but the phone will be sold for just $220 (¥1,499), nearly half the cost of the Mi 6.

    The Mi 5X features a 5.5-inch Full HD display, and is powered by a Snapdragon 625 chipset. The phone has a full metal unibody design with rounded corners and antenna bands at the top and bottom, a look that’s similar to the Mi Max 2. Other specs include 4GB of RAM, 64GB storage, dual 12MP cameras with the secondary lens acting as a telephoto shooter, 5MP front shooter, Wi-Fi ac, Bluetooth 4.2, and a 3080mAh battery. Like the Mi 6, the Mi 5X also offers a Portrait Mode that blurs out the background.

    The phone will be sold in t…

  • MIUI 9 goes live with UI tweaks, smart assistant, and split-screen mode

    MIUI 9 includes a ton of new optimizations and a few much-needed additions.

    At a media event in China, Xiaomi showed off the next iteration of its popular ROM, MIUI 9. MIUI is Xiaomi’s first product, with the first version of the ROM launching all the way back in 2010. Seven years later, the ROM has racked up over 2.8 billion downloads from 142 countries, and is translated into 55 languages. The Chinese manufacturer introduced a visual refresh last year with MIUI 8, and with MIUI 9, the focus is on refining the user interface and adding new features.

    To that effect, Xiaomi is touting increased app load times thanks to optimized thread scheduling and CPU acceleration. The company also improved haptic feedback, and is introducing a new allocation model wherein the system prioritizes resources for in-use apps.

    A new feature coming to MIUI 9 is a smart assistant that lets you search through apps, notes, images, and more to find the information you’re looking for. There’s also a ne…

  • Galaxy S8 Daydream rollout begins as Google promises support on 11 phones by end of year

    As Verizon’s GS8 gets its Daydream VR update, Google CEO Sundar Pichai says a total of 11 Daydream phones will be available by the end of 2017.

    It was promised back at Google I/O, and now the Samsung Galaxy S8 has started receiving firmware updates to enable Google’s Daydream VR platform. As spotted by 9to5Google, the update is hitting Verizon models first in the U.S., and also brings the option to hide the navigation bar — a feature which arrived on international and Indian GS8s in June.

    GS8 owners should be able to enjoy a great VR experience with Daydream, thanks to its low-latency, high pixel density (especially on the smaller model) and subpixel rendering. The rollout is likely to be staggered across various carriers and regions though, so it could be a few more weeks until all Galaxy S8 variants are updated.

    Meanwhile Google CEO (and new Alphabet board member) Sundar Pichai noted in yesterday’s Alphabet earnings call that there would be 11 Android phones with Daydream …

  • Verizon Galaxy S8 and S8+ updated with new navigation bar features and Daydream support (but not really)

    Earlier this month, T-Mobile Galaxy S8s received an update that reportedly enabled Daydream, but Daydream was (and still is) incompatible. T-Mobile later updated its changelog to reflect this. However, Verizon hasn’t learned from Team Magenta’s mistak…
