Did an image of the OnePlus 2 leak on Weibo?

We’ve less than a month till the OnePlus 2 is announced at a global, virtual event so we’re pretty certain that hardware design is finalised by now.

Google may have outed Android M’s final name — Android Milkshake

We know that Android M is already a thing; it’s been announced and Daniel’s already taking a look at it on his Nexus 6. However, Android M is just an internal name (though it’s possible that it’s being also referenced as Android Macadamia Nut Cookie internally… though that name won’t make it to final release). However, as usual, eagle-eyed Redditors[Read More…]

Nexus talk is always a hot topic at this time of year; there’s five months until we expect to see what Google has in store for us by way of hardware releases from the Nexus program.

A preview of Google’s new Photos app, which may launch at Google IO this week

The rumours of Google+ and Photos splitting have been a long time in the making; we first reported a possible split like this in August last year, and it’s only continued since, and in February Sundar Pichai all but confirmed that Photos will become a standalone product away from the Google+ sphere. Well, with Google IO coming up this week,[Read More…]

Next version of Android is known internally as Macadamia Nut Cookie, or MNC for short

Google’s next version of Android is almost certainly going to be unveiled in a couple of days at Google IO 2015, but like Android L and Android K before it, chances are it won’t have a proper name just yet.
