Android 8.1 revealed to be coming next as the newest Google Search app gets scrutinized

According to a teardown of the latest version of the Google app for Android, the Mountain View software giant is already working on the next version of Android that will likely arrive in the following 2-3 months for all eligible devices, likely alongside the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel XL 2.

That’d be Android 8.1 and it will likely introduce a neat amount of changes due to the simple fact that it will be joined by a siginificant bump in the Android SDK, which is set to hit number 27. In case you didn’t know, the SDK is essentially a collection of APIs that allows third-party …

Google Spaces is the newest Google service to be shut down

In May 2016, Google launched Spaces, a service (and app) aimed at providing “a better group sharing experience.” Basically, Spaces was meant to be a neat product for small groups of people united by the same interests, offering an easy way to share links, photos, or videos. Now, apparently after seeing that the service is far from being popular, Google is getting ready to shut it down.

Newest Android Phones in 2012

In 2012, Apple has brought us a new gift — iPhone 4S, and HTC brought us HTC One X. And now, Samsung brings us a great gift — Samsung Galaxy S III. So, which one is the best? We are so confused when we make a choice among these mobile phones. Here, I want to discuss the distinct features of Galaxy S III.

S beam:
Samsung Galaxy S III has a great connection function. Samsung Galaxy S III is provided with a newest connection technology. That is S beam. With S Beam, just place two Galaxy S III phones back-to-back and you can transfer photos, videos, documents and more. In just three minutes you can successfully share a 1GB video file–it’s fast, easy, and you don’t even need a Wi-Fi or cellular signal.

Smart Stay:
Samsung Galaxy S III is really smart. With the Smart Stay feature, the screen display will remain bright as long as you’re looking at the phone. Set it down, and it dims instantly. Because the front-facing camera can identify your eyes–while reading an e-book or browsing the web, for instance–it recognizes how you are using your phone and provides a bright display accordingly.

S Voice:
Like the Apple Siri, the S Voice feature enables the Galaxy S III to actually listen and respond to your words: tell it to wake up, snooze, take a photo, answer a call, send a text message or play a favorite song. If you’re text messaging with a friend, you can easily switch to calling them instead with the Direct Call feature. Simply lift the phone to your ear, and it automatically dials their number.

These unique features make Samsung Galaxy S III be unique in Android phones. We can say that Samsung Galaxy S III is one of the most successful Android phones, and it is one of the most comparable competitor to Apple iPhone 4S.

Now I want to introduce you an Android phone from Google. If you live in USA, you should be very happy. Google declined the price of Galaxy Nexus. You can save $ 50 now. If you are finding a gift, a Galaxy Nexus is a good choice.

Google is the focus of the world in recent days. Firstly, it released Android 4.1 in Google I/O, and Google Nexus 7 became one of the Android tablets. Now, this must be a good news for you if you want to buy a Galaxy Nexus. Galaxy Nexus’s price in Google Play is declined $ 50.

The original price of Galaxy Nexus in Google Play is $ 399, and now it is dropped to $ 349. Let’s view some details of this phone. Galaxy Nexus can support 5-band 3G network, and it can support GSM network from 200 operators in the world. Galaxy Nexus adopts a 4.65-inch HD Super AMOLED Contour Display, and it resolution can up to 1280 x 720. It has a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, and a 1GB RAM, so Galaxy Nexus must can run smoothly. It is equipped with two cameras, a 5.0 MP Continuous auto-focus in back, and a 1.3 MP in back. The most importance is that Galaxy Nexus will be carried with Android Jelly Bean firstly. If you have bought this phone, you can upgrade your Android to Android Jelly Bean in July.

There is a pity that the price of Galaxy Nexus is only dropped in USA. Maybe some days later, users in the whole world can share the discount.
