Microsoft's Dual-Screen Surface Device May Support Android Apps


It has been rumored for a while now that Microsoft is working on a dual-display device which will be introduced under the Surface brand. A recent report had even suggested that the company had displayed a prototype of this device to employees. A new report claims that this unnamed device will have two 9 inch displays with 4:3 aspect ratio and that it will be capable of running Android apps.

The report claims that this device, codenamed Centaurus, will be able to run Android apps as that will be supported by Microsoft’s new Windows Core OS (WCOS) operating system. WCOS is essentially the platform for a more lightweight version of Windows OS. It’s this operating system that’s known as Windows Lite internally which will be used for dual-screen devices and competitors for Chromebooks.

Sony needs a 'compact' device to challenge the Samsung Galaxy S10e

In the absence of Sony releasing a 2019 ‘compact' flagship (at least so far), who would have thought that Xperia fans would be turning to Samsung to fulfil their needs. Sony Mobile has dampened plans to release any more ‘compact' flagship devices. Earlier in the year, Sony Mobile's Vice President of Marketing said that consumers wanted bigger displays, implying that Sony may be ending its compact range.

Google 'coral' Device Benchmarked With Snapdragon 855, Android Q

Google 'Coral' Device Benchmarked With Snapdragon 855, Android Q

We know that every year Google releases new Pixel smartphones. This launch usually takes place in the later part of the year, but it seems that Google might have something early in the works. According to a recent benchmark sighting, a device called “Coral” was spotted where it looks to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 chipset and runs on Android Q.

It is unclear if this device will be one of the Pixel phones. This is because Google usually gives its Pixel phones codenames based on fish, and while “Coral” is aquatic themed, there is a good chance it might not be a Pixel handset. Instead some are speculating that this could be a Chromebook or tablet of sorts that is powered by Qualcomm’s chipset.

There have been a few reports recently about what we can expect from Android Q but it will take some time before Google makes the next iteration of its mobile OS official. A new report claims that Android Q will allow mobile carriers to implement stricter device locking rules.

9to5Google discovered new code posted on the Gerrit source code of Android which suggests that carriers may be given more control over locking devices to a specific SIM card with Android Q. This will let them control which SIM cards do and don’t work with a device.

Google Limits The Number Of Notches An Android Device Can Have

Google Limits The Number Of Notches An Android Device Can Have


Android device manufacturers have jumped on the notched display bandwagon in droves. The Essential Phone was one of the first to feature a notch before it was popularized by the iPhone X and then everyone started doing it. Most smartphones that we have seen so far don’t have more than one notch but Google is hedging its bets against a potential problem in the future by laying down the law with regards to the maximum number of notches allowed on an Android device.

Google has informed device manufacturers that their devices can only have a notch at the top and/or at the bottom of the display. There can only be a single notch on each edge of the display.

Samsung Android Go Device Specs Possibly Leaked

Samsung Android Go Device Specs Possibly Leaked


While Samsung hasn’t officially confirmed it as yet, recent reports have suggested that there’s a Samsung Android Go smartphone in the pipeline. Android Go is an iteration of Android Oreo that Google has launched for low-end devices with 1GB of RAM or less. These devices offer a vanilla Android experience on entry-level smartphones. Samsung is believed to be making one such device and its specs have possibly been leaked.

Samsung has dabbled in stock Android smartphones in the past but it didn’t make that a permanent thing. Even the company’s budget handsets come with its own custom skin on top of Android which some argue slows down its devices.

Leaked Renders Reveal Nokia 5.1 Plus Android One Device

Leaked Renders Reveal Nokia 5.1 Plus Android One Device

It seems that HMD Global, the company that makes Nokia-branded smartphones now, isn’t quite done with launching new smartphones this year. It announced five new handsets at MWC 2018 in February and followed them up with three more in May. The latest leaked renders suggest that it has another device in the pipeline, the Nokia 5.1 Plus. This appears to be another Android One device from the company.

The leaked renders show that this device is going to have a notched display but it’s not going to be bezel-less enough compared to other Android devices. The Nokia logo appears to be placed on the chin on this device which is chunky itself and not really on the bezel-less trend.
