Taking a look back at seven days of news and headlines across the world of Android, this week’s Android Circuit includes the latest details of the Google Pixel 2, the huge screen for the Note 8, Andy Rubin’s new Android smartphone, OnePlus getting ready to launch its 2017 flagship, sales data for the Galaxy S8, why Bixby is missing an english accent, BlackBerry’s zero-day update, and another step into Android from Microsoft.
Android Circuit is here to remind you of a few of the many things that have happened around Android in the last week (and you can find the weekly Apple news digest here).
What We Know About The Next Google Pixel
Excitement continues to build over Google’s hotly anticipated but traditionally difficult ‘second album’. The Pixel 2 family looks to be three handsets with specifications that score higher than the Galaxy S8, following the trend for curved OLED screens and minimalist design. Shubham Sharma sums up the current state of play along with some new renders of the smartphone:
As for other upgrades, the recent renders leaked on Weibo have tipped the use of a Galaxy S8-style curved OLED display on the Pixel 2. All three phones are said to boast a major hardware upgrade, with high processing power and a much-improved dual-camera setup. The Pixels have always been ideal for photography, but we all know, dual-camera support has become a cliché, and Google could easily use it as an upgrade, just like Apple. The phones are also said to deploy 16MP shooters on the back and 8MP snappers on the front, with special attention towards low-light photography.
Revealing The Large One-Handed Note Screen
Samsung’s product cycle allows it to have two flagship launches every year, the Galaxy S smartphones in March and the Note phablets in September. The critical acclaim gathered by the Galaxy S8’s design is set to be built on as the new screen for the Note 8 leaks. Gordon Kelly reports:
A new leak reported by SamMobile, claims to have uncovered the first video of the Galaxy Note 8 front panel and its display measures a massive 6.3-inches. That’s 0.6-inches larger than the ‘explosive’ Galaxy Note 7. This would make the Galaxy Note 8 the largest flagship smartphone Samsung has ever released with only the niche, mid-range ‘Galaxy Mega’ from 2013 matching it. That said there’s nothing outlandish about this size increase.
Why? Because the panel shown is very similar to the ‘Infinity Displays’ used in the Galaxy S8 and Galaxy S8 Plus, the latter of which is a whopping 6.2-inches. It also shows the same elongated 18.5:9 aspect ratio. Something LG’s G6 has already adopted and Apple is expected to replicate with the iPhone 8 as it makes large displays relatively comfortable to use one-handed.
