Considering how extensively the Pixel 4 leaked before it was introduced last year, it's quite a miracle that we don't know all that much about its budget sister model yet, rumored to be released in May during Google I/O. It looks like that's bound to change, as some images have surfaced on Twitter and Reddit via a private Facebook group that give us a first low-res, pixelated look at a purported Pixel 4a — though we should take these images with a healthy dose of skepticism.
Okay, so Kyocera's not really known for producing the best smartphones. And Boost Mobile is perhaps best known for mildly entertaining ads and cheap plans, compared to the big dogs. If you're not interested in having the latest and greatest, if your primary concern for network carrier is price, and if you spend a lot of time making phone calls under water, then I've got some great news for you: the Kyocera Hail Hydro is coming to Boost Mobile for $129 (no contract) on August 3rd.
The phone, which we covered back at CTIA, boasts some pretty meager specs. A single-core Snapdragon processor, 512MB of RAM and a 3.5" 480x320 IPS display.
OrangePixel, the famous for retro-inspired hits like Stardash and Meganoid, debuted Chrono & Cash to the Play Store today, bringing another fun, low-res platformer to Android.
The game centers around Cash (a "talented thief") and his Chrono robot called CR2. The duo travel through time to rob various treasures from evildoers through a simple yet clever gameplay style. The visual style is consistent with OrangePixel's other offerings – well thought-out, colorful, and pleasing to the eye despite its (intentionally) low-res graphics.
Each level is comprised of a single screen with a variety of platforms, each holding treasure which the player must grab while avoiding contact with "the locals."
