Welcome to Top Android News, our daily running feed of the most important news from the wonderful world of Android. Throughout the day, we’ll be updating this post with the latest coverage from your favorite sources — so be sure to keep checking back.
09:30 (EDT) | T-Mobile’s Des Smith has taken to Twitter to announce that the carrier will roll out the Android 7.0 update for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge in the US later this week. The upgrade should transport all of the features baked into Nougat, in addition to the latest version of Samsung’s Experience UI.
11:25 (EDT) | The latest Android distribution figures are in and show that adoption of Nougat has risen to 9.5 percent, which is a 2.4 percent increase from last month. The data was acquired by recording the operating system of all devices that accessed the Play Store during a seven-day period.
12:45 (EDT) | Google’s released a much-needed update for the Pixel and Pixel XL, designed to patch a nasty bug that resulted in some handsets randomly freezing. As you’d expect, the upgrade is making the rounds in stages, but if you’re feeling impatient you can grab the factory images from Big G’s website right now.
13:15 (EDT) | Get your diaries at the ready, folks: OnePlus has finally scheduled a launch event for its long-awaited flagship smartphone of 2017, the OnePlus 5. The unveiling will take place on Tuesday, June 20 at 12:00 PM (EDT) and Android Geek’s Blog will, of course, be reporting live from the floor.
14:35 (EDT) | Android Police has managed to obtain an “accurate” render of the upcoming OnePlus 5. As we’re sure you’d agree, the handset looks an awful lot like the iPhone 7 Plus, with a dual-camera setup on the rear, OnePlus’ widely-recognised logo in the center and its trademark mute switch on the side.
15:55 (EDT) | Earlier today, Google shared a short clip over on its official YouTube channel showing off the many different uses for Android Wear, including receiving notifications, sending messages, following step-by-step directions and translating text in real time. Pretty neat, huh?
