Android Oreo wants to make your phone twice as fast

cnet.com - The latest chapter of the mobile war is in full swing. In conjunction with Monday's 2017 solar eclipse, Google revealed the official name of its latest mobile OS as Android Oreo. The update is undergoing carrier testing for Pixel ($597.99 at Amazon.com) phones and the Nexus 5X and 6P, and should roll out "soon," according to Google. The Pixel C ($645.95 at Amazon.com) and Nexus Player will also be compatible with the update. Select phones from Samsung, LG, Motorola, Essential, HTC, Huawei, Sony, Nokia, Kyocera and Sharp will either launch with or update to Oreo through the end of 2017.

Android phones could swipe the iPhone 8's most important new feature

mashable.com - Android phones sometimes follow Apple's lead when it comes to key functionality features, and the next generation of smartphones could be no different. Future Android devices are expected to mimic one of the upcoming iPhone 8's most anticipated new features: 3D facial scanning.

Google Pixel 2: Everything we know about the launch date, specs and price

cnet.com - With its superb camera and elegant design, the Google Pixel (and its larger counterpart, the Pixel XL) hit it out of the park last year. So it's no surprise that Google wants to keep the good times rolling with its pair of premium flagships. The company's hardware chief, Rick Osterloh, already confirmed that a follow-up is coming in 2017, and while he didn't say exactly when, we'd guess it'll launch some time in October, a year after the Pixel was born.
We don't know much about the next Pixel (unofficially known as the Pixel 2), but rumors say that it'll have a slimmer design and an even better camera. Until its unveiling, however, we've gathered all the facts and rumors we know about the phone so far. Be sure to check back as more information rolls out; we'll keep the updates coming.
