In the Android enthusiast bubble, the Pixel 4a is one of the most hotly anticipated devices of 2020. The previous Pixel 3a won our phone of the year award, and both hopes and concerns are high when it comes to the follow-up. At this point, we know almost everything about the phone, from specs and benchmarks to the bump in base storage and a potentially reduced price. But one detail remains unknown: When will the phone come out? With the Pixel 4a finally making an appearance at the FCC, we may not have too much longer to wait.
Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Watch 3 has been leaking like crazy recently. It first went through the FCC back in May, and then a report claimed that Samsung would announce the watch at an event in July. And now it looks like we're getting some even more specific confirmation of that announcement date thanks to a leaked product render.
Google Pay is the primary method of contactless payments on Android devices, but Google might have greater ambitions for the app than just storing all your credit cards. A new report from The Information claims the app could become a shopping portal, if retailers and delivery companies sign on.

Some CAD renders of this phone that should not be have now been leaked by Pigtou and @xleaks7, showing what that handset would've looked like. Spoiler alert: It's just a bigger Pixel 4a, with the exception of dual cameras on the back.
While those in North America are treated to Qualcomm-powered Galaxy phones, Samsung forces its in-house Exynos SoC on buyers in most other markets. While capable, Exynos chipsets rarely manage to one-up their Snapdragon counterparts, both in performance and power efficiency. Samsung could change that with its upcoming 5nm flagship chip that is rumored to enter mass production sometime in August.
Motorola was right on the verge of turning irrelevant in the premium smartphone segment when it decided to bounce back with a modern-day flip phone. The new Moto Razr managed to get people interested by striking a nostalgic chord, even if hardware like a Snapdragon 700-series chip kept power users wanting more. As thoughts turn to a follow-up Razr, a new report talks about possible iterative upgrades for its camera and battery, and an official source helps us narrow down the launch time frame.
This week, Samsung shared the unsurprising news that the next Galaxy Note series will be presented during an online-only event, and now, some of the first renders of the Note20 have been leaked by Pigtou and xleaks7. There are only small changes compared to its predecessor except for the size and a bunch of design cues from the S20 models.
OnePlus has been selling its 'Bullet' earbuds for years, and while some of them have offered Bluetooth connectivity, the company has yet to release truly wireless earbuds.
