Huawei And Leica Release Joint Statement Detailing Collaboration On P9 Camera, But It's Still Pretty Vague

Leica and Huawei really seem to have let discussion about the P9's camera module get under their joint-skin. Today, the companies released a joint statement addressing concerns about Leica's involvement, after it became clear earlier this week that the camera modules themselves were manufactured by the Chinese company Sunny Optical.

Huawei and Leica, though, were not satisfied with the conclusions this continued to cause journalists and readers alike to draw: that the camera was, in large part, a marketing effort. Today, Huawei and Leica have attempted to shine a light on exactly what involvement the German optics and camera manufacturer had in the P9's development process.

Google Is Preparing To Test A New Travel App Sometime Next Week

Google is apparently reaching out to Maps explorers with word of a new app heading down the pipeline.

The email invite calls on recipients to be the first to try a new app for travelers. There isn't much in the way of details, other than the availability for both Android and iOS. But given the recent launch of Google Destinations, travel is clearly an area of interest for the company.

Sneaky Platformer Stealth Inc. 2: A Game Of Clones Is Now Available For The SHIELD TV And SHIELD Tablet

The title for the sequel to Stealth Inc. is a pun on HBO's Game of Thrones fantasy series. Perhaps that's why NVIDIA published it to the Play Store this week: with the next season starting on Sunday, there's no better chance to capitalize on at least a few dozen people mistakenly putting the wrong search phrase into Google. But underneath its pop culture allusions there's a solid platform-puzzle game, and now it's available for the SHIELD Android TV and SHIELD Tablet (sorry, SHIELD Portable owners... and every other Android user, I guess). It's $10 with no in-app purchases.

The Google I/O 2016 Schedule Is Up

Google has just published the official schedule for I/O 2016 - you can see it right here. This year's I/O is at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, near Google's own headquarters. Day one kicks off with a 10AM keynote that will go a full two hours (!), but there are lots of other interesting sessions, here are a few.

  • 6 Degree of Freedom Gaming in Android with Project Tango
  • What's new in Android (our favorite)
  • Introducing Project Tango Area Learning
  • Android battery and memory optimizations (new battery optimizations in N, supposedly)
  • Android Auto for everyone
  • What's New with Project Tango
  • VR & Cinema
  • Google's Vision for VR
  • Android high-performance audio

Seven sessions feature "VR" as one of the tags, so I would not be surprised if more VR-related sessions (and hopefully, news) are added as we get close to the conference.

Five Things I Love About The HTC 10

The HTC 10 is a good smartphone, and not only that, it's probably the best one HTC has made in years. Here are five things that, during my time with the HTC 10, I really found I appreciated. We're starting this new series for all of this year's flagship smartphones - the HTC 10 is just the first. There will also be counterpoint posts on five more negative aspects of each device.

The battery life

Last year's One M9 wasn't great in this regard, so it was very refreshing to see HTC get back on track here. Battery life on the HTC 10 for me was a standout positive, and it may even edge out the Snapdragon 820 Galaxy S7 we get here in the US, despite using the same chip and having the same overall battery capacity.

Microsoft Translator Inches Ever Closer To Google Translate With New Image Translate And System-Wide Translation On Marshmallow

When it first launched last summer, Microsoft Translator had some potential but a lot of catch-up to do with Google's own Translate. No offline mode, no natural conversation mode, no Android Wear app, and many other missing features made me refrain from recommending it when I compared it against Translate. But Microsoft has been updating its app, bridging the gap with each new version, adding all of these features and more like Klingon support and a kickass Android Wear integration. The only major capability that was still missing from Translator's arsenal was image translation and that's finally here.

Version 2.16.82, which is already live in the Play Store (and on APK Mirror) can load images, automatically detect languages, and overlay the translation into the language of your choice on top of each element.
