Google for Jobs was announced at I/O this year, and despite having a not-so-great-name, the idea behind it is really cool. We already use Google to search for just about everything, so why not take it a step further and use it to find job results? Not just sites where you can apply for jobs, but the results themselves.
Verizon is no stranger to snagging exclusive deals with tablets for their customers, and it seems like they’re going to pad out their portfolio in 2017 with the ASUS ZenPad Z8, according to a leaked press image from Evan Blass.
It’s been a wild stretch of time with both official and unofficial leaks, but today the wait finally ends. The OnePlus 5 will be announced. Our team at Talk Android is in New York City to see the 2017 flagship in-person, and you can watch the phone announced from wherever you are.
You won’t want to miss the launch event for the OnePlus 5, so sit down and watch with us.
Despite garnering a ton of plaudits when it first launched, the Galaxy Note 7 turned into a total disaster that culminated in Samsung issuing a global recall for the handset. For a while, it was thought the Korean handset maker would abandon the Galaxy Note series altogether, but it was confirmed back in January that there would indeed be a new iteration, appropriately named the Galaxy Note 8. Today, it’s been reported that the Galaxy Note 8 will launch in the latter part of August, possibly around the 26th.
Google achieved excellence in 2016 with the release of its first phone in which both hardware and software were created equally. The Pixel is unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. It’s fast, it’s smart, and it’s attractive. Maybe, if anything, battery life could be better. Fortunately there’s Mophie to the rescue.
WWDC is Apple’s annual developer conference, which is fairly similar to Google I/O that we cover every year. It’s a multi-day event with one big keynote where Apple goes over tons of developer-related material and showcases upcoming software and changes, and very occasionally we get to see new hardware, too.
Remember earlier this year when Sprint bought a stake in Tidal? Well, that’s finally turning into a decent promotion for Sprint customers, as they’re going to get exclusive streaming rights to Jay-Z’s new album 4:44 when it drops next week.
Consider all the things that a phone offers. What’s the most important to you? Maybe it’s the display, or maybe it’s the battery life. But those areas can be very similar across a number of phones. The camera, however, differs greatly. Companies use different components and the software, too, is unique. That’s why you rarely see two phones that provide similar results.
In an exclusive interview with The Verge, OnePlus revealed the 2017 phone’s camera is more important than anything else.
The Essential Phone is due to start shipping out to customers soon, but we don’t have an exact date just yet. Despite the phone technically not being available, someone got their hands on one and managed to accidentally get captured in public using it.
