Report: LG G6 Set for MWC Reveal, Launch as Early as March 10

Reports suggesting LG will reveal and then launch the G6 earlier than any of its past G-series flagships, continue to pile up. At this point, I think we should all be surprised if the G6 doesn’t launch before mid-March, weeks earlier than last year’s G5. In the latest out of ETnews, LG has confirmed that the phone will be unveiled at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in late February.  (more…)

Android Distribution Updated for January 2017 – RIP, FROYO!

Oh man, we’ve got yuuuuuge breaking news on the Android distribution front. You ready for it? Seriously, are you ready for this? Well, if you read the title, you know it, but yes, Froyo is finally dead!

And then just after CES, Nokia did announce a new phone, the Nokia 6, for China. Yeah, for China, so you and I won’t ever have the chance to buy one, if even for some reason you were excited about Nokia Android phones.

We figured this phone was worth a quick write-up because some of you do seem to care about Nokia’s Android plans. And also, this is the first Nokia Android phone from HMD Global, the company that bought the Nokia brand licensing rights. If this phone is a sign of things to come, I think it’s safe to say that we should all be at least looking forward to what’s next.  (more…)
