Top Android News: Wednesday, June 7

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.

10:00 (EDT) | A slightly dubious render of the Galaxy Note 8 surfaced online on Wednesday. As noted by Phone Arena, the handset looks awfully similar to the Galaxy S8. It reportedly has an Infinity Display on the front, a dual-camera on the rear and fingerprint scanner embedded in the screen.


11:45 (EDT) | According to David Ruddock from Android Police, Google could start distributing the Android O update, which is still yet to be assigned its flavor, as early as August. The upgrade should also make its way to the HTC U11 and OnePlus 3T shortly after.

13:15 (EDT) | Reliable tipster Evan Blass has taken to his Twitter account to reveal that OnePlus will launch variant of the OnePlus 5 in India on June 22, which will be powered by a 2.35GHz Snapdragon 835 octa-core processor and have a colossal 8GB of RAM.

14:30 (EDT) | Samsung’s started rolling out an update for Bixby Voice (no, it’s still not available outside of South Korea) to give it the ability to remember keywords, so users should now be able to say “bank balance” to find out how much money is in their account, instead of something more structured.

15:20 (EDT) | An image has surfaced on leak aggregator SlashLeaks allegedly showing off the much-anticipated OnePlus 5 from all angles. As we’re sure you’d agree, the handset looks an awful lot like the iPhone 7 Plus. Obviously, we can’t verify the authenticity of the image, so take it would probably be best to take it with a grain of salt.

16:30 (EDT) | As expected, T-Mobile is now pushing out the long-awaited Android 7.0 Nougat update for the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge in the United States. The upgrade bundles all of the features baked into Nougat, in addition to the latest version of Samsung’s Experience — formerly known as TouchWiz — UI.
