Android O is supposed to make Android updates arrive faster

  Android O is supposed to make Android updates arrive faster It’s not clear if this removes all hurdles or if manufacturers will still have to update Android’s code to make sure that features specific to their phone are working. But it certainly sounds like one of the most concrete things Google has done to address the problem of Android fragmentation.While the fragmentation situation has gotten better over time, it certainly hasn’t gone away: the latest version of Android, Nougat, has been out for more than eight months and is still on only 7 percent of Android phones. Android Jelly Bean, which was succeeded almost four years ago, is on more devices than that.

In a move to make lemonade out of lemons, Samsung may sell refurbished editions of its infamous Galaxy Note 7 under a new name: the "Galaxy Note FE," or "Fandom Edition."

As you recall, Samsung ceased production and recalled the Note 7 (twice) after users reported in summer 2016 instances of the phone catching fire. In March of this year, Samsung stated that it will recycle returned Note 7s in an "environmentally friendly way," and listed turning the devices into "refurbished phones or rentals phones" as one of its three core methods. Today, a report from Korean news outlet ETNews said these handsets may be called the Galaxy Note FE, with FE standing for "Fandom Edition."

LG will reportedly switch to OLED displays for next major smartphone

  LG will reportedly switch to OLED displays for next major smartphone LG is likely to move away from LCD in favor of an OLED screen for its next premium smartphone, the V30, according to The Korea Herald. The change would carry on with an eventual G7, the successor to this year’s G6. Samsung has long used OLED technology for its Android smartphones; the displays offer more vivid colors and deeper blacks than LCD screens, which are currently used by Apple, HTC, and LG’s existing mobile devices.

Though this name may seem overly pandering to its fans, it may not be all that misguided. In January, Verizon told Fortune that thousands of people were still using their Note 7s, despite Samsung reporting that 93 percent of all devices have been returned.

ETNews also claims that the Galaxy Note FE will have a limited run (it estimates 300,000 units) in South Korea starting late June. Samsung has confirmed with CNET that the refurbished Note 7 would not be available in the US.

Other reports have claimed that the refurbished phone will have a smaller battery than the Note 7, and a lower price. After the recall, Samsung announced its 8-point battery check to ensure the safety of its phones, but it's unknown whether refurbished phones will undergo the same safety check.

Samsung declined to comment.
