Android 8.0 is officially called Oreo

As expected, Google today decided to finally unveil the moniker of the next iteration of Android. Known simply as “O” for the past few months while a few Developer Previews and public betas went out, it now officially has a full name.

It’s Android 8.0 Oreo.

So yes, this time around the most rumored name actually turned out to be what Google chose to call its latest sweet treat.

It’s only the second time in Android’s history when there’s a commercial partnership involved – for version 4.4 KitKat Google teamed up with Nestle (which owns that brand), and this time around the search… (Source)

You can now have an 8GB RAM 128GB storage OnePlus 5 in Slate Gray

OnePlus now offers the OnePlus 5 with 8GB of RAM in Slate Gray flavor.

Up until now the 8GB of RAM, 128GB of storage model was a Midnight Black exclusive.

The Midnight Black remains available with 8GB of RAM – you can’t get it with 6GB of RAM if you really (inexplicably) wanted to.

And if you want to buy a Soft Gold unit with 8GB of RAM you’ll need to wait as it’s only available with 6GB of RAM.

Samsung reportedly bought up almost all available Snapdragon 845 chips

A rumor by the fairly reliable @ice suggests we may have a repeat of the first half of the year when Samsung hoarded all available supply of Qualcomm’s top chipset, leaving other makers to search for alternatives (like the 821) or delaying their H1 flagships.

Allegedly, Samsung has done it again and bought up “most” of the initial batch of Snapdragon 845 chips. Those will be used in the Galaxy S9, specifically the one to be sold in the US. Samsung will have the Exynos 9810 for Europe and Asia, but that’s of little consolation to the likes of LG, HTC and Sony (Huawei and Xiaomi do have… (Source)

Deal: Asus Zenfone 3 ZE520KL for £175 in the UK

The new Zenfone 4 seems cool, but in case its price seems steep to you, you may want to check out the Asus Zenfone 3 ZE520KL. You can find it for £189 in the UK, which drops to £175 with the code SHP5Q3.

Sure, you’re getting a smaller 5.2″ IPS LCD instead of the 5.5″ AMOLED screen of the new model and no dual camera either. But a sub-£200 price is still pretty solid for a phone with a 16MP camera with OIS, 2160p video capture and Android 7.0 Nougat. The 2,600mAh battery seems fairly small, but the Snapdragon 625 chipset will make the best of it.

256GB Galaxy Note8 version confirmed by a flier

It seems that the 256GB version of the Galaxy Note8 will not only come with quadruple the storage of the base 64GB model, but some premium goodies as well. There will be a promo in South Korea there that offers you a choice between an AKG Bluetooth speaker and a Nemonic printer (think PostIt notes with cloud integration).

The 64GB model will come with a coupon for up to KRW 100,000 off accessories like the Gear VR or a combo of case plus external 5,100mAh battery. These are just examples, there should be more options come launch time. This somewhat ties into the report of Samsung offering… (Source)
