Google is adding a bunch of Android smartphones to its MVNO, Project Fi. The new phones will be compatible with the network and you’ll pay for text, call and data from Google through the Project Fi service via a mobile application.
If you own a Moto Z or Galaxy S7 smartphone on Verizon, I give you full credit for holding your breath on Android Oreo. Unlike some other carriers in the US who rolled out the update for these devices many months ago, Verizon is yet to do so and has told owners of these devices many times that the update is coming. After a long wait, the update is almost ready and will release “in a few weeks.”
Our guess is that most of you have a smartphone if you’re reading this. Being smartphone owners ourselves, we’re always interested in knowing when a smartphone gets updated. Wouldn’t it be convenient to have this all in one place? That’s why we created our ‘Droid Updates’ Weekly Series.
Motorola might have a busy summer season planned with a variety of Android smartphones seemingly on their way. We’re talking about new Moto Z3 phones, a possible Moto X5, new Moto Mods, and now an unconfirmed Motorola One Power. This is the first time we’ve heard of such a device, and it won’t be your typical Motorola or Lenovo smartphone.
Motorola smartphones are no strangers to Amazon’s Prime Exclusive device program. The Moto X4 was introduced on the program last year, and in pursuit of reaching more markets, the mid-range king in that of Moto G6 is now available.
We can’t be far off an announcement of Moto Z3 Play. After not leaking for some time, we passed along a render yesterday. Today, what appear to be official renders have spilled all over the internet. Despite being unconfirmed by Motorola and Lenovo, the device could be announced any day now.
One company we have not heard from recently as it pertains to new products is Motorola. And over the weekend, the rumored Moto Z2 Play successor leaked alongside a Moto Mod attachment.
Motorola introduced a trio of new Moto G6 smartphones in April (G6, G6 Plus, G6 Play) and today, one model and color has gone up for sale at Verizon. As we’ve seen in the past with Moto G5 Plus and Moto G handsets before it, Verizon is always first to carry Lenovo’s mid-range successors.
