Android Oreo 8.0 Brings New Rescue Party Feature For Bootloops

5:26:00 PM

Yesterday, Google released Android Oreo 8.0 and we all know about the new feature it brings for the users. But, there is this one feature which is under the hood and works from behind when you are in danger, basically like a superhero. 

Android 8.0 Oreo is meant to help users avoid having their smartphones bootloop after trying to update to a new version of the OS. The new feature is called Rescue Party should be enabled by Oreo automatically when it detects that core system components are stuck in crash loops.

After the bootloop issue is noticed by Rescue Party, it will start a series of actions meant to recover the device. If none of these work, it will try rebooting the smartphone into recovery mode and prompt the user to perform a factory reset.

Unfortunately, the Rescue Party feature is enabled in Android 8.0 Oreo only, so it will not work on other versions of the OS. It's also worth mentioning that the new feature is enabled by default, so you don't need to do anything to set it up.

Finally, Rescue Party will automatically trigger if the system_server restarts more than 5 times in 5 minutes, or if a persistent system app crashes more than 5 times in 30 seconds. Keep in mind that no special hardware support is needed in order for Rescue Party to work.

[Livestream] Watch Google's Android O Unveiling Here

9:56:00 PM

Today is the day when Google will unveil the Android O’s mascot and the update itself. This consists Android statue unveiling party at the Googleplex in Mountain View, but this year Google’s mixing things up a bit: the company is announcing the mascot and name for Android O in New York City at an event perfectly coinciding with today’s solar eclipse. 

If you’re looking for the livestream for the event, you’ve come to the right place. As Google notes on its eclipse page over at Android.com/o :

On August 21st, a solar eclipse will sweep across the entire United States for the first time since 1918. Android is helping you experience this historic natural phenomenon so you can learn more about the eclipse and count down to the big day—when you’ll meet the next release of Android and all of its super (sweet) new powers, revealed via livestream from New York City at 2:40PM ET.
The livestream of the event kicks off right around 2:40 ET (12:10AM For Indian Viewers), so tune in below to catch the big Android O unveiling. Sorry to spoil the surprise, but it’s more or less certain at this point that the O for Android 8.0 is going to stand for Oreo, marking the second branding partnership since Android began naming its releases after “tasty treats”.

If you’re here more for the latest software releases and less tasty codenames, then you’re in luck: a couple reports likely to be reliable suggest that Android O will begin rolling out to Google Pixel today.

If it is the statue, it is not that unique compared to Android Marshmallow and Lollipop.

[Official] Android O Coming On August 21 After The Solar Eclipse, Name Likely Oreo

12:19:00 AM

It's official! Google's upcoming Android OS update, which is Android O will be announced officially on August 21 with name of it , the same day as the big total solar eclipse!

Today, Google shared a new webpage which is over at the Android site with a countdown to the unveiling, which will go down at 2:40PM Eastern (11:40AM Pacific). For those who haven’t been following the eclipse saga and are confused by the timing, the solar eclipse expected to end at around 11:37AM, so 3 minutes later, we’ll get Android O.

Also, here is this small hint which most likely confirms that Android O will be named Oreo. But keep in mind, we are not sure as Google tends to troll at the end.

The video above was posted to Google+ and the person who uploaded it named the video file “GoogleOreo_Teaser_0817_noDroids%2B%25281%2529.mp4.” See anything in there? Yeah, it says “GoogleOreo_Teaser” as plain as day. 

Is that a confirmation that Android O is Oreo? Well, no. Google likes messing with us, but they did immediately delete that G+ post (it was here) after that bit was spotted and replaced it with another post and new video titled “OctopusTeaser.mp4.” You tell me – Oreo or nah?

The special Android eclipse page will feature live video streams from NASA and also the reveal by Google in NYC. You can catch all of that action at this link on August 21.

Let's see what Google brings to us.

[Leaked] Official Render Of LG V30 In All It's Glory

5:27:00 PM

LG soon will be announcing their next flagship phone LG V30 on August 31st at IFA in Berlin. So far we know that this device will have a 6.0" 1440p P-OLED display with the trending 18:9 ratio and curved edges (FullVision, as LG calls it). Also, the device will sport a dual camera setup of a 16MP, f/1.6 aperture main camera with a 13MP wide angle lens. 

But, today we got the best view of the device from the famous leaker Evan Blass or @evleaks. The latest image confirms all the previous leak like barely noticeable bezel and that big beautiful screen with 18:9 tall ratio. 

On the back it has a rear mounted finger print scanner/power button and dual camera module with separate flash. The sides have an almost chromed look. There are volume buttons on the left and the SIM card tray is on the right. Although we can't see them here, we understand from previous leaks that there will be a USB-C port on the bottom and the fabled headphone jack will be present on the top.

And here is the comparision between LG G6 and LG V30, and we can already see that LG V30 looks better. The new thing about the V30 is it's curved sides, also smaller bezel removed that ugly LG logo on front which makes the device more neat and aesthetic compared with LG G6. 

We expect it to be powered by a Snapdragon 835 and have at least 64GB of storage and 4GB RAM, although we haven't heard anything concrete about those specs just yet. 

We are not far away from the announcement of the phone, so far we already know everything. Let us know if you like the look of it in the comments.
