After initially unveiling Android P earlier this year, Google provided more details about the upcoming version of Android at the opening keynote of its developer conference. There are plenty of new features in Android P, but more importantly, Google has also added tools to the OS to help you spend less time on your smartphone.
Android P Preview: Navigation Gestures, Adaptive Battery, Digital Wellbeing and Deeper AI Integration
New features for Google Assistant aren’t the only announcements at this year’s Google I/O, and of course Android was going to get plenty of attention for its next major update.
Apart from adding support for notch-based displays, Google will also be adding support for navigation gestures in Android P. A video shows the Pixel 2 running a leaked build of Android P Developer Preview 2 which gives us a look at how this gesture will work.
Apple would very much like it if more Android users switched over to the walled garden ecosystem, and, as such, has polished a pair of new ads to encourage potential switchers.
Android Smartphone Makers Rushing to Incorporate In-Display Fingerprint Scanners Instead of Face ID Due to High Costs
When Apple introduces a new feature, you generally expect Android smartphone manufacturers to follow suit, but it looks like they are not rushing to incorporate Face ID like 3D sensor face recognition technology in smartphones.
On a semi-regular basis, Apple’s executives tout the customer loyalty that its brand has picked up over the years, usually touting how much people love iOS and the iPhone.
Last year, Apple introduced the iPhone X, which, among many other things, welcomed a brand new design philosophy for the smartphone lineup.
After Apple unveiled the iPhone X, there was plenty of feedback and hot takes about the smartphone’s “notch” design. Some people hated it and others didn’t mind it at all. But it looks like the notch has made an impact on the smartphone market as a whole.
Apple today has published several new video ads to its official YouTube channel, with the majority of the new additions focused on people who switch to iPhone.
Last year, HTC unveiled the HTC 10, the company’s flagship for 2016 that dropped the gimmicks and simply focused on being a flagship smartphone with noteworthy features and specs.
