Google Photos to finally get its long-promised Colorize mode, early beta samples surface

During I/O 2018, Google gave the public a sneak peek at a Photos feature that could colorize old black and white pictures, making them look as if they had been taken with an actual color camera. One year after its unveiling, word around further development on Colorize went silent, save for a promise from Google that the beta would be launching "soon." Fast forward five more months, and a functioning version of Colorize has finally been unearthed in beta via the latest Google Photos 4.26 update.

[Update: Dead] The Philips Hue 2-bulb color starter kit is almost 50% off on Amazon at just $78

Hue bulbs are among the best ones on the market, thanks to their reliability and compatibility with many third-party services such as Alexa, Assistant, IFFT, and many more. Unfortunately, they're also known for their relatively high price, but this deal on the color starter kit with two bulbs is a steal at just $78, almost 50% off their traditional MSRP.

Google Pixel 3a leak suggests phone could come in new 'iris' purple color

Google's paintbrushes for its Pixel phones have generally been black, white and something else. The first time around, it was one flavor of blue. The second go? Another sort of blue. The Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL have this option called... "Not Pink." So, what will the company do for the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL?

Pixel 3 teaser might indicate a third mint aqua color

The third-generation Google Pixel leaks continue. At this point, the company doesn't seem to have anything hidden from us — unless you believe the wild conspiracy theories about a mystical notch-less Ultra Pixel. Even Google seems to have given up on hiding things and, in a teaser for the new Pixels on its Japanese site, has revealed a potentially third aqua/mint color.

Galaxy S9/S9+ in Sunrise Gold coming to the US on June 24

Samsung is no stranger to releasing new colors for its phones, but the US usually misses out on these new colors. Sunrise Gold and Burgundy Red were announced for the Galaxy S9 and S9+ last month, but the United States hadn't been name-dropped in Samsung's press release. However, it looks like the US will be getting the S9/S9+ in Sunrise Gold after all (though there's unfortunately no mention of Burgundy Red coming as well).

Essential's stunning 'Ocean Depths' color for the PH-1 is coming on February 15th

The Essential PH-1 is easily one of the most beautiful smartphones on the market, with its almost-nonexistent bezels and ceramic back. Back in October, the company released a 'Pure White' version of the PH-1 that looked fantastic, but white isn't really a very special color. If you want special, you'll have to look to the Ocean Depths color, which Essential is now teasing a launch date of February 15th for.

LG announces 'Raspberry Rose' V30 for CES

The LG V30 was somewhat of a mixed bag. While the hardware and design is excellent, the high price and questionable display quality made it a hard sell for many. LG seems to think a new color option might convince a few buyers, so it has been working on a 'Raspberry Rose' model. The new color will be shown off at CES later this month.

Check out XDA's incredibly detailed analysis of the Pixel 2 XL's display

Sometimes you don't want to read up on how someone "feels" about a product. Everything's subjective, of course, and it's good to combine multiple viewpoints, but once in a while, it's nice to just sit down and examine the raw data, that way you can come to your own conclusions. And Dylan Raga over at XDA-Developers just assembled an intense and in-depth analysis of the Pixel 2 XL's display that's worth a read. At least, if you'd like to scratch that purely quantitative itch.

Weekend poll: Do you use a calibrated color profile on your phone?

One of the more vocal complaints leveled against Google's Pixel 2 phones was the display's default color calibration. Although some might prefer the over-saturated vibrance of less accurate color profiles, Google opted for a more calibrated default that was closer to sRGB as a means of providing color-accurate backward compatibility with apps that didn't immediately declare their color space.

Of course, Google later provided an update with a more saturated option for those that wanted it. But we're curious, how many of you actually use calibrated color profiles?
