Spice-phone

Indian smartphone maker Spice has confirmed it will launch its first Android One smartphone by the end of October. The device is expected to deliver a dual-core processor, two SIM card slots, and a built-in FM radio — and in line with the Android One program, it should cost under $100.

Sony’s upcoming Xperia Z3 will pack a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor combined with 3GB of RAM, according to a new report, but a super sharp Quad HD display will not be appearing on its specifications sheet. Instead, the device is expected to deliver the same Full HD (1080p) resolution as its predecessor with a slightly smaller screen.

Xiaomi-Mi41

When Chinese smartphone maker Xiaomi announced the Mi 4 on Tuesday, we — and pretty much every other site that covered the news — were quick to point out that it bears a slight resemblance to the iPhone. This isn’t the first time Xiaomi has been influenced by Apple, either. In fact, the company is often referred to as the “Chinese Apple.”

And yet, despite all that, Xiaomi global vice president Hugo Barra, who used to be in charge of Google’s Android division, has dismissed any likeness to the Cupertino company, and says he’s “sick and tired” of the Xiaomi being labeled an Apple copycat.

Based on the evidence, I have to say I disagree.

Google has started rolling out an update for the Play Store app that brings with it partial implementation of the company’s new design language — Material Design.

The main page and the basic UI elements of the Play Store still remain the same but apart from that everything else has been given a beautiful revamp.

LG-G-Watch

Google has just released and uploaded the official kernel files for both Samsung’s Gear Live (Sprat) and LG’s G Watch (Dory) to its Android Source Platform. For many of us, they’re not much use, but for developers they’re a godsend as they now have the tools to produce some awesome new features.
