In the coming weeks, OnePlus is expected to show off the OnePlus 5, a smartphone meant to compete with the Samsung S8 and Google Pixel. However, a recent leak reveals that the OnePlus 5 may be more powerful than either of those phones.

Faster Apps

Thanks to OnePlus’ partnership with DxO, the OnePlus 5 is expected to have one of the best cameras available on a smartphone, but a recent leak from TechRadar reveals that the phone may be better for gaming as well.

The Pixel remains a great smartphone and still has plenty to offer, but its components are getting a bit older. The S8, on the other hand, features Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 835 processor and is one of the most powerful smartphones on the market.

Despite featuring the same processor, recent leaks claim that the OnePlus 5 may actually be faster than the S8. The leak compares the speeds of the OnePlus 5, Pixel, and S8 in terms of opening apps. In nearly every instance, the OnePlus 5 is several seconds faster than its counterparts from Samsung or Google.

One thing that is unclear is whether or not the OnePlus 5 used in this test featured 4 GB or 6 GB of RAM. Obviously, more RAM would result in a faster phone, so it is tempting to assume this was the 6 GB model. Of course, the type of RAM used in the phone would also make a difference.

As of right now, we don’t know what type of RAM will be used in the OnePlus 5. We don’t even know if the aforementioned leak is legitimate, though TechRadar mentioned that it came from a trusted source.

Price And Release Date

Of course, all that extra speed won’t come cheap and rumors suggest that those costs will be passed onto consumers. Previous models of the OnePlus have been more affordable than Apple or Samsung’s offerings, but leaks suggest that might change this time around. A source who spoke to Android Authority said that OnePlus was “looking at a significantly higher price point due to components and design.”

In terms of specifics, the source mentioned that the price could be as high as $ 650. While that is more expensive than previous models of the OnePlus, it’s still cheaper than the Galaxy S8 and significantly cheaper than the iPhone 8, which is rumored to cost north of $ 1,000.

OnePlus doesn’t follow an annual release cycle, but current trends suggest the phone will be released in summer of 2017.

The future of Android will be a lot smarter, thanks to new programming tools that Google unveiled on Wednesday. The company announced TensorFlow Lite, a version of its machine learning framework that’s designed to run on smartphones and other mobile devices, during the keynote address at its Google I/O developer conference.

“TensorFlow Lite will leverage a new neural network API to tap into silicon-specific accelerators, and over time we expect to see [digital signal processing chips] specifically designed for neural network inference and training,” said Dave Burke, Google’s vice president of engineering for Android. “We think these new capabilities will help power a next generation of on-device speech processing, visual search, augmented reality, and more.”

The Lite framework will be made a part of the open source TensorFlow project soon, and the neural network API will come to the next major release of Android later this year.

The framework has serious implications for what Google sees as the future of mobile hardware. AI-focused chips could make it possible for smartphones to handle more advanced machine learning computations without consuming as much power. With more applications using machine learning to provide intelligent experiences, making that sort of work more easily possible on device is key.

Right now, building advanced machine learning into applications—especially when it comes to training models—requires an amount of computational power that typically requires beefy hardware, a lot of time and a lot of power. That’s not really practical for consumer smartphone applications, which means they often offload that processing to massive datacenter by sending images, text and other data in need of processing over the internet.

Processing that data in the cloud comes with several downsides, according to Patrick Moorhead, principal analyst at Moor Insights and Strategy: Users must be willing to transfer their data to a company’s servers, and they have to be in an environment with rich enough connectivity to make sure the operation is low-latency.

There’s already one mobile processor with a machine learning-specific DSP on the market today. The Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 system-on-a-chip sports the Hexagon DSP that supports TensorFlow. DSPs are also used for providing functionality like recognizing the “OK, Google” wake phrase for the Google Assistant, according to Moorhead.

Users should expect to see more machine learning acceleration chips in the future, Moorhead said. “Ever since Moore’s Law slowed down, it’s been a heterogeneous computing model,” he said. “We’re using different kinds of processors to do different types of things, whether it’s a DSP, whether it’s a [field-programmable gate array], or whether it’s a CPU. It’s almost like we’re using the right golf club for the right hole.”

Nevertheless, merely a few of OnePlus 3 users reported the coming of the upgrade in March.

Google Assistant Coming To OnePlus 3 And OnePlus 3T

On March 23, OnePlus supported through its Twitter manage that OnePlus 3T and the OnePlus 3 were receiving the Google Assistant voice helper.

Normally, the business pushs out in periods upgrades like this one and, thus, require some time to reach on an apparatus.

Google has affirmed the Assistant will probably be making its way to any or all smartphones powered Marshmallow and by Android Nougat, instead of being controlled to the Pixel apparatus of the company’s.

To begin, touch and hold the House button,” shared the firm.

The firm also affirmed that the Google Assistant wouldn’t be pushed out promptly for tablets that were compatible.

This implies that a user can simply inquire the Helper a question, also it is going to seek the Net to present the top responses to all those questions to the user.

Other characteristics include the ability interpret texts, remind the user about significant actions, and to interpret. It may also provide users and weather reports may utilize all home-based to control smart appliances.

The Google Assistant is with the capacity of recognizing the user’s voice and may be managed exclusively by the user, which keeps seclusion and the protection of the smartphone itself.

“If you ever request your Helper for assistance from various other services, you remain in charge of the info that you share. Easily handle or delete your previous dialogs with your Helper at any given moment,” claims the firm.

Like the OnePlus 3, Dashboard charge which improves the charging capabilities of the handset is supported by the OnePlus 3T.

 

“Can Dashboard Charge produce a day’s power in 30 minutes during our commute? Notices the description.! of the video

At the start, OnePlus disclaims the genuine charging time may change depending on several variables like the settings, use while charging, arrangement of the power source, together with the smartphone.

Dashboard Auto Cost Vs. Quick Charging

For the evaluation, the Google Pixel Xl was joined to the USB-C Belkin the OnePlus 3T and also 27W car charger was joined to the OnePlus Dash car charger.

While the Google Maps program was in use, the batteries of both these apparatus were charged concurrently for thirty minutes.

This evaluation reaffirms OnePlus’ claims that one, with Dashboard charge gets a day’s worth electricity in 30 minutes.

Did OnePlus 3T Charge Quicker?

Furthermore, for any navigation procedure, a cellular apparatus necessitates particular number of electricity. In this procedure the cellphone could get heated up. This in turn restrains as the Google Pixel attempts to normalize the temperature of charging, the speed.

The roll contour layout makes it tangle free and simple to use.

What’s more, the internal cable is made from copper and nickel the apparatus or which ensures rapidly charging without heat up the wiring system.

Pay attention to the video below which shows off both smartphones’ billing abilities in actions.

Owners of the Telephones by Google reported that the secure variant of the newest Android took care of the LTE Group 4 dilemmas, but that was not the situation for everyone, before this month.

Option To Pixel And Pixel XL Connectivity Issues

“Remove spaces in front of APN kinds in order that telephony can locate APNs that may manage a specific sort correctly,” the description reads.

Android 7.1.1 Nougat NMF26Q Availability

Google did not give a sound release date when the upgrade will be shoved to the Pixel and Pixel XL, but it did publish OTA picture and the factory picture on the Android Programmers site.

Apart from mending the difficulties that are connectivity, the brand new build did not actually add anything else to the mixture.

That means Pixel and Pixel XL owners that are not experiencing any dilemmas that are mobile do not truly need to install it. On that note, it is still safe to presume that Google will establish it as an OTA upgrade for everybody in the near future.

Wrapping Things Up

Google’s Pixel is a success, with some versions out of stock a few months after start.

The 32GB Pixel, the most economical cellphone, comes in at 22 percent.

We ’ll shortly find a Galaxy S8 in a couple of months as Samsung strives to rally from the disaster that is Note7.

Deep integration of Google services and the Google Play Shop will result in additional opportunities to rake in the money.

As for getting your hands on one some Pixel versions are still difficult to come by.

Why this matters: Google’s initiative to compete directly in the smartphone company is unquestionably paying off. The Apple-like integration of software and hardware is the correct strategy for a business that is certainly betting on its services being a crucial part of your digital life. Additional success for the Pixel, nevertheless, hinge upon getting the cellphone into other carrier shops. Now Verizon is the sole insurance company to sell the Pixel.

This report, “Report: Google on pace to sell 3 million Pixels by the end of the year” was initially released by Greenbot.

Reports from Nexus and Pixel cellphone owners are piling up that the apparatus are revealing shaky Bluetooth connectivity and pairing.

Bluetooth In-Car Connectivity

Especially, it appears like an increasing variety of users are having problem connecting their cellphones to their smart autos via Bluetooth. What’s more, once the autos are eventually connected to by the cellphones, the link is shaky and can break at any moment.

As the business already notes that’s looking into the issue it really is better to wait for Google to address the issue freely.
