Two of LG’s most recent smartphone offerings -- the G7 ThinQ and the V35 ThinQ phablets -- are now available for preorder from Project Fi, Google’s wireless service. The LG G7 ThinQ is offered at a price of $749, or $31.21 each month for a period of a couple of years. The LG V35 ThinQ on the other hand can be had for $899, or $37.46 every month for 24 months.
It was more than seven months ago when Google had first unveiled Datally. For those who missed this unveiling, just know that Datally is a mobile app that helps consumers better monitor, manage, and ultimately save on mobile data. Google fully intended the app to be used in emerging mobile markets, wherein people often depend on prepaid SIM cards, as opposed to unlimited data plans. Google claims that during pilot testing, its Datally app allowed users to enjoy a 30 percent savings on data usage. Recently, the tech giant has revealed that savings are now at 21 percent on average.
Google has confirmed recently that it will be starting to roll out its Android Messages feature for web in the next few days. For those not familiar with the feature, it basically lets Android users send and receive SMS (short message service) or RCS (rich communication services) messages using their desktop computer by way of the Internet.
The third generation Pixel smartphone -- the Pixel 3 -- will not make its debut until later this year, but as always, speculation about Google’s upcoming flagship offering is never in short supply. This time around, the latest round of rumors is fueled by the roll out of an early version of the tech giant’s Android P (the newest version of the world’s most popular mobile operating system, now made available in beta).
It was back in October of 2016 when Project Fi, the mobile service operated by Google, had debuted its new group plan for up to half a dozen members. But the carrier’s family plans were not exactly designed to include younger members, specifically those not older than thirteen years old.
Smartphones with front side notches are so in this year (and we probably could blame Apple’s iPhone X for this, and to some extent, last year’s Essential Phone), and it appears that Google’s own flagship series of devices -- the Pixel -- might start to join in on the fun soon.
You can say that there is a lot to process from this year’s I/O developer conference, ranging from stuff that only developers can appreciate to new features that quite possibly will blow Android mobile users’ minds when they experience them in their smartphones and tablet devices. Without further ado, let us navigate through the coolest developments.
Not only did the 2018 I/O developer conference bring new updates with regards to Google’s upcoming Android P mobile operating system (whose beta can now be downloaded, provided you have a compatible smartphone device) and other really cool stuff, this year’s event also announced big upgrades for the tech giant’s own mobile payment system, Google Pay.
As expected, the upcoming latest iteration of the world’s most widely used mobile operating system, Android P, had taken a starring role in this year’s annual Google I/O developer conference. And those looking to experience Android P first now get an opportunity to do so -- the beta version can now be downloaded (go visit the official preview web page here).
