Google publishes September security patch changelog, but factory images are still MIA

HMD was the first company to release the September security update for one of its Nokia smartphones, but Google should be fast behind. The search giant has just published the Android Security Bulletin for September 2017, which contains all the fixes included in the update.

Usually, the changelog was published along with the OTA files and factory images for the update, but this time Google will not release them. The Mountain View company announced that Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel C, Nexus Player, Nexus 5X, and Nexus 6P devices will be receiving the September security …

Moto X4 official press images surface along with final specs

After numerous leaks these past few weeks, we now finally have on our hands the first official press images of the Moto X4, and they are accompanied by the supposed final specs for the phone as well.

His designs are usually top-notch not only in terms of 3D-rendering mastery, but also in conveying the main rumors and leaks about an upcoming phone in the most plausible manner.
