TCL's BlackBerry Mobile may have taken the most attention at IFA 2018 for the company, but Alcatel is still chuggin' at it.
Last week, the company made promises to be a better phone maker. It continued to make those promises with the launch of the Vivo XI+.
TCL has added another option at the budget end of its phone offerings and it is as bare bones as it can get. But is it worth $80?
The options to have the "ears" blend in or stay out of the way were available on the Essential Phone in Android Oreo... but not Pie? Why?
TCL seems to be taking Palm's ethos into account if this leaked render set is indicative of anything true. But how long does it last?
The last update to the dashboard was two months ago, so a good bump in stats for the latest versions of Android was expected.
The fast-approaching Samsung Galaxy J2 Core seems set to run a rather bizarre mix of Android Go and the company's proprietary sofware.
The feature has gotten out of its YouTube Red premium range and is spreading to all Android Oreo devices in the United States.
TCL introduced us to the Alcatel 1X earlier this year with what we thought was the most basic setup with modern trimmings you can get in 2018. Well, this.
The display's about 7 inches across, the battery's amazingly large and there's the usual trimmings like dual rear cameras sprinkled in, too.
But be prepared to shell out big time, even with the regular version of this device. It doesn't have a servo-fed camera reveal system for nothing.
Officially priced at $99.99, the entry-level Alcatel 1X combines Google's Android Oreo (Go edition) software optimizations with a trendy screen and generous 16GB internal storage.
New and old, low and high-end (and mid-range), all of HMD Global's Nokia-branded smartphones are now officially guaranteed to receive Android P updates... eventually.
The new Nokia 2 carries on the original's mission of two-day battery life with new hardware and a better multimedia experience at a low price.
Already updated to Android 8.0 and then 8.1 Oreo, the OnePlus 5 and 5T are receiving another huge OTA goodie pack as we speak, including a convenient new gesture for screen-locking purposes.
Speed is the game, OnePlus is the name. Will its latest Android smartphone keep up? It has 480fps video capture, a new Snapdragon 845 chip and a new storage option. All for a little more money than the OnePlus 5T.
These two phones hit the mid-range of the smartphone market with lots of Qualcomm technologies and quick support of Android updates as they come.
The latest Android distribution chart looks just as bad as the one from last month, with Nougat in the lead, Marshmallow in second place, and Oreo at only 5.7 percent.
Samsung continues to expand the popular budget-friendly Galaxy J smartphone family, with the J2 2018 officially unveiled in India, and a J2 Core likely in the pipeline running Android Oreo (Go Edition) software.
The Qualcomm chipset is a very efficient user of power. There's also dual cameras here. But what will China and India pay for it?
The OnePlus 5 and 5T are now part of the less than one percent of the world's Android devices officially running 8.1 Oreo.
Launched running 7.1 Nougat through the OEM's official e-store, Amazon and Microsoft, the Razer Phone is getting updated to Android 8.1 Oreo and expanding to Best Buy.
Google forgot to revise the Android distribution chart last month, now reporting some massive growth for Oreo compared to February numbers.
