Essential rolls out Android P Beta, despite sale rumors

  Essential rolls out Android P Beta, despite sale rumors Bloomberg recently reported that Andy Rubin's Essential is in a big enough trouble that the Android founder is considering giving it up for sale . The company didn't confirm if there's truth to that, but it doesn't look like it's letting any issue it's dealing with affect its software updates: Essential has announced on Twitter that it has released Android P Beta 1 for its bezel-less ceramic phone. While the phonemaker referred to the software update as "Beta 1," it confirmed to Android Police that it's identical to the second Android P Beta Google just released.

The NEX takes the current convention for bezel-less displays, and pushes it a notch further (pun absolutely intended). The phone boasts a (frankly bonkers) 91.24 percent screen-to-body ratio, which is about as high as you’ll get on any phone.

It’s accomplished this by ditching the dreaded notch entirely. That’s right — there’s no notch at all blemishing the phone’s 8.59-inch FHD+ Super AMOLED display.

The 8-megapixel front-facing camera is actually hidden within the body of the phone, and pops up when it’s to be used.

That’s a pretty nifty design, although the cynic in me thinks that it’s yet-another complicated component to break — especially if you’re a selfie-fiend, and constantly exposing the pop-up mechanism to wear-and-tear.

Another weird feature of the Vivo NEX is that it ditches the earpiece entirely, replacing it with the company’s Screen SoundCasting Technology.

This, the company says, offers better call quality than a traditional earpiece, with “more powerful bass and softer, smoother treble.” TNW is receiving a review unit in the coming days, and we’re really excited about testing this feature in particular.

The Vivo NEX also saves space by using an under-screen fingerprint reader, much like the ultra-extravagant Huawei Porsche Mate RS. This helps Vivo accomplish its ultra-extreme screen-to-body ratio, but at a cost. My colleague Abhimanyu tried the device, and complained that the fingerprint reader wasn’t especially responsive.

Best Android phones 2018: smartphones from Google, Samsung, LG, HTC, and more

  Best Android phones 2018: smartphones from Google, Samsung, LG, HTC, and more If you're in the market for a new smartphone, and you don't want an iPhone, you've got a wealth of premium handsets to pick from – Google's mobile OS has been adopted by dozens of manufacturers, which means plenty of variety in terms of designs and specs. Here we're not concerned with great value phones, or the most well-designed phones, or the phones that are rocking the catchiest ringtones. Our mission with this post is to lay out the very best Android smartphones that money can buy in 2018 – so let's get started.

For what it’s worth, that’s been my experience with the technology too, on both the Huawei Porsche Mate RS, and on the Honor 10 (which uses an under-glass fingerprint reader). When it comes to speed and accuracy, you simply can’t beat a dedicated fingerprint reader.

The NEX is Vivo’s latest flagship phone, and it’s appropriate it receives flagship specifications. The device packs a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 SoC, which is backed up by 8GB of RAM, and an Adreno 630 GPU. It also boasts a 4,000 mAh battery, which is pretty sizable.

In terms of storage, users get 256GB to play with (less whatever the system uses). Truthfully, I can’t imagine ever coming close to filling that up. It seems a little excessive. That said, I can imagine it being welcomed by those who like to hoard apps, or capture lots of high-definition video.

Speaking of which, the phone backs a dual-camera setup, with a 12MP primary shooter, and a 5MP secondary one. Vivo says its infused its camera app with some new AI features, which can produce higher-quality photographs.

ASUS stuffed a screen into the ZenBook Pro 15's touchpad

  ASUS stuffed a screen into the ZenBook Pro 15's touchpad Remember Razer's Switchblade UI? Remember Windows SideShow? If you ever dreamt of a computer with its own secondary display, then ASUS' New ZenBook Pro is the device for you. In place of a traditional touchpad, the company is adding the ScreenPad, a 5.5-inch touchscreen that can even run its own apps. That's the headline feature, at least, of the company's latest flagship laptop aimed at creative professionals. The ZenBook Pro 15 with ScreenPad (UX580) is the first device to get ASUS' new touchscreen/touchpad hybrid.

Huawei’s done something similar with the P20, P20 Pro, and the Honor 10. It’ll be interesting to see how Vivo’s effort compares.

Potential punters will be delighted to hear the Vivo NEX runs Android 8.1 — although it’s Vivo’s own spin on it, called Funtouch 4.0.

Chinese phone manufacturers are no stranger to taking an axe to Android, and crafting it in their own image. Just look at Xiaomi’s MIUI, which is actually really decent (I actually prefer it to stock Android). It’ll be interesting to see how Vivo’s attempt stands up.

The Vivo NEX will be available in China in black and red variants. As mentioned, TNW is getting its grubby paws on a review unit, so stay tuned for our final verdict.
