Motorola has been seeing success with its line of stylus-equipped G-series phones. So naturally, Moto has announced its third stylus phone in less than two years. The Moto G Stylus 5G has, you guessed it, 5G connectivity. It has solid specs for a G phone, too, but the $400 price tag puts it in the realm of Pixels and Galaxies.
If there's one thing Motorola likes more than not delivering timely updates to its phones, it's releasing multiple iterations of its devices with slight changes. The Moto G Stylus hit the market earlier this year, offering a Galaxy Note-like experience for a lot less cash upfront. If you've been holding out hopes for a 5G-compatible device, a new leak hints that you won't have to wait much longer.
After accidentally teasing a few upcoming phones before removing them again earlier this year, Google has published a proper update to its ARCore support page, revealing that the augmented reality library is now supported by 24 more devices. This time around, all of them have already been announced.
Motorola only recently announced the feature-packed Moto G40 Fusion and the G60, but it isn't done adding phones to its increasingly bloated G lineup. The company has released yet another product in the form of the Moto G20. It's an entry-level device, but it boasts a couple of features that are not as common in the price segment.
Verizon is in a giving mood these days. It has released Android 11 not for one but two Motorola phones. Both the Moto G Stylus and the Motorola One 5G UW are in for Google's latest stable Android release, complete with newer security patches (but not the latest).
Any time an application hits 100 million installs on the Play Store, it's worth taking note. From podcast players to streaming services, it's a sign that an app has truly cemented its legacy on Android. It's not often that three apps reach this milestone all at once, but that's exactly what has happened today. PlayStation, myAT&T, and Moto Photo Editor have all earned their respective places in the Play Store hall of fame.
If you didn't think Motorola's G series was confusing enough, the Lenovo-owned company has now announced two more phones, the Moto G60 and the Moto G40 Fusion. While the naming situation is a bit muddy, the products are competitive and clearly meant to go up against the popular Redmi Note 10 Pro series in India.
Motorola's folding Razr was a surprise homage to an iconic phone, but the company quickly followed it up with the Moto Razr 5G, which tops the original revival in almost every aspect. While the phone launched with Android 11 in Japan, it got stuck on Android 10 in most of the rest of the world, with an unfortunate launch timing shortly after Android 11's stable release. But that's finally changing — the latest version of Android is now starting to roll out to the Razr 5G, as reported by XDA.
Out with the old, in with the new: LineageOS cut support for Android 9 Pie earlier this year, and to make up for the loss, the open-source project has just released version 18.1 based on Android 11. It comes with official support for about 60 phones and tablets.
We've clearly got a little bias on the subject, but Android has a long and storied history filled with its own triumphs and pitfalls. It's been well over a decade now since that first HTC G1 landed, the inaugural Android smartphone, and things have changed drastically since then. Being "first" might make you think the G1 was the most influential Android phone — but was it, really?
