The Snapdragon 768G is Qualcomm’s latest mid-tier 5G processor for gamers

The Snapdragon 768G is Qualcomm’s latest mid-tier 5G processor for gamers

Everbody wants a 5G phone these days, but what’s that tech going to cost you? We’re beginning to see an influx of mid-range phones that can latch onto a 5G network, without you having to pay the ultra-premium price of flagships. One thing that’s common across these devices is their processor — the Snapdragon 765G, which Qualcomm introduced not too long ago. Just a few months later, the chipmaker is already announcing a follow-up with a few minor upgrades, the Snapdragon 768G. The new 768G shares much of its underlying tech with the older 765G. It inherits the 5G-enabled X52...

The first Chrome OS tablet that (mostly) makes sense

The first Chrome OS tablet that (mostly) makes sense

Lenovo’s Chromebook Duet sounded like a winner the moment we first heard about it. It’s a 2-in-1 detachable tablet running Chrome OS, and though it might not pack the fastest chipset, the rest of its hardware impresses — especially given that it starts at just $280 and comes with a keyboard cover. While the Surface-style form factor has its issues when it comes to usability, this the first Chrome OS-powered tablet that’s actually made sense. Design and hardware You’d be forgiven for assuming the Lenovo Duet costs more than it does the first time you see it. It’s attractive, with...

The Google Wallpapers app may be responsible for endless crash bug on Pixel 2

The Google Wallpapers app may be responsible for endless crash bug on Pixel 2

For some reason, Pixel phones tend to exhibit the strangest bugs, and we might have just run into yet another weird one. Pixel 2 and 2 XL owners have been reporting for more than two years that some images available through the Google Wallpapers app make their SystemUI crash repeatedly to the point of a device shutdown. With no chance to change the wallpaper in that timeframe, they have to factory reset their devices to make them functional again. A tipster reached out to us with a detailed report on the issue. He says he first ran into the problem...

Instagram Lite is dead, all hail full-fat Instagram

Instagram Lite is dead, all hail full-fat Instagram

Social media platforms have maintained slimmed-down versions of their apps in the past few years to grab more users from developing markets with low-end hardware. Facebook, however, has decided to shut down Instagram Lite and is now redirecting users to the main app. The company has not said why. A lot of lite apps are basically nothing more than a managed WebView browser with a few extra elements and this was no exception to that rule. It was trialed first in Mexico around June of 2018 before expanding to other regions at some point. AppBrain reports that the app had...

Pixel 4a launch could be postponed to early June

Pixel 4a launch could be postponed to early June

Despite the canceled Google I/O slated for this week, we initially assumed that the Pixel 4a would still be announced via other means any day now, but according to information from German publication Caschys Blog, the launch may have been postponed to June. Internal documents obtained from Vodafone Germany state that the carrier might start selling the phone on June 5. Caschys Blog previously reported that the Pixel 4a would be available from Vodafone starting May 22, but the changes in the carrier’s database now point to the postponed release date. With this new information at hand, the blog speculates...

Newton Mail is back from the dead once again

Newton Mail is back from the dead once again

The Newton Mail journey has been something of a rollercoaster ride. The innovative mail client had something of a cult following which it clearly wasn’t able to convert into profit so its developers announced that it would shut down back in 2018 right after an unpopular price hike. It was then revived by Andy Rubin’s Essential in 2019, but we all know how that worked out. Just when we thought it might have been gone for good, Newton Mail has now been acquired by a couple of users who couldn’t bear to see it die. In a post on Medium,...

Twitter is testing separate ‘Retweets with comments’ count and tabbed UI on Android

Twitter is testing separate ‘Retweets with comments’ count and tabbed UI on Android

Twitter is testing a new way of showing users how each tweet has been shared, according to app sleuth Jane Manchun Wong. Right now, if a post has been retweeted, there’s a counter showing how many times. What Twitter appears to be toying with is adding a separate counter for retweets that have comments attached to them, as well as a tabbed UI for easily switching between counters once you’ve open them up. These changes are already live in the iOS version of the app, so it was a matter of time before Android caught up. We’ve all gotten used...

Google Search adds more AR 3D objects, including cell models and anatomy elements

Google Search adds more AR 3D objects, including cell models and anatomy elements

Google presented AR objects in Search with much fanfare during its developer conference last year, and it probably would’ve loved to talk about additions and improvements during this year’s I/O. With the event canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic, the company has instead shared some news on the feature via a blog post. In it, Google shows off new 3D objects, such as additional anatomic models and magnified views of cells. There are also new capabilities for the viewer. While you could view skeletons, muscles, and many other body parts in Google’s 3D viewer courtesy of Visible Body, there’s now...
