LG V40 ThinQ leak suggests it’s bringing a strong selfie game

LG A new leak appears to have detailed the LG V40 ThinQ’s camera setup. The speculation suggests front-facing camera will have a regular and a wide-angle lens. As previous reports have already indicated, the rear-camera setup could consist of a telephoto, ultra-wide angle, and regular lens. We have heard a lot about the LG V40 ThinQ’s five cameras already. However, a recent tweet by Evan Blass appears to have revealed new details about the dual front-facing camera setup. Blass claims the dual front-facing camera setup will be made up of a standard and a wide-angle lens. He also added that the rear camera trio will be made up of a standard, telephoto, and super-wide angle lens (like LG has already teased in a promotional video). About those five cameras on the LG V40 ThinQ… — Evan Blass (@evleaks) October 1, 2018 Having a regular and a wide-angle lens makes a lot of sense on a selfie camera. A wide-angle lens allows you to fit more of a scene into your photo than a regular lens, even if the camera is the same distance from the subject. This can be useful for group selfies or if you want a selfie that includes a lot of the background. While it appears that the LG V40 ThinQ won’t get a depth sensor or a telephoto lens on the front, it may still be able to...

Android version distribution: Still no sign of Pie in September figures

Google has released its September Android Distribution numbers and Android 9 Pie still doesn’t make the cut. This means less than 0.1 percent of Android devices use the latest operating system, despite Pie rolling out to Pixel and Essential handsets back at the beginning of August, and OnePlus, Nokia, and Huawei devices in more recent times. Editor’s Pick Android 8 review: Oreo is for everyone Three years ago Google introduced us to its new design language called Material Design. It was flat, graphical and colorful. It was the visual change that ushered in the beginning of a new age for … While it’s disappointing that 99.9 percent of Android phones still don’t run the latest version, the number of devices using Oreo continued to increase. Currently, 19.2 percent of Android devices use Android 8.0 or 8.1 — a 4.6 percent increase on last month. At the same time, Nougat, Marshmallow, and Lollipop all fell around one percent. Google Jelly Bean and KitKat saw a decline also, though Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich held steady on 0.3 percent each. Around 88 percent of Android devices now run Android Lollipop or later, and we hope to see Pie rear its head in the next report. Why do Android updates take so long? From KitKat, to Lollipop, to Marshmallow, and to Nougat, each new version of Android seems to hit fewer devices and do so in...

These are the 5 best iPhone games like Fortnite

Fortnite has been the big hitter in mobile gaming this year, and it’s not hard to see why.

But there are other battle royale experiences out there if you want to try something different. Some of them are terrible though, so we thought it’d be a good idea to round up what we think are the very best games like Fortnite for iPhone. [Read more] Go to Source...

Huawei Mate 10 Pro reportedly receiving Android Pie in Europe

Huawei is reportedly rolling out the Android Pie-based EMUI 9.0 update to the Mate 10 Pro. The new Huawei update is apparently restricted to European users for now. Prominent EMUI additions include a fingerprint-enabled password manager and GPU Turbo 2.0. Huawei isn’t the fastest when it comes to system updates, but it looks like the company is stepping up with Android Pie. According to GetDroidTips, the Chinese colossus has pushed out a Pie-based update to the Mate 10 Pro. The update is bundled with the EMUI 9.0 Android skin and has the build number, the website claims. The OTA is reportedly being pushed out to Mate 10 Pro users in Europe, but will “soon” spread to other markets. EMUI 9.0 packs plenty of features, such as the Google Lens-inspired HiVision feature, GPU Turbo 2.0 for better performance in selected games, and a biometric-enabled password manager (seen below). The Chinese brand is also touting faster app launch speeds and smoother system performance with the new skin. Android Pie should also bring a few new features to the Mate 10 Pro, such as digital wellbeing, wind down functionality, Google’s take on gesture navigation, and adaptive brightness. It’s unclear whether Huawei will adopt Pie’s adaptive battery feature, as EMUI already has its own power-saving features.
