Android One has been getting a fresh breath of life in the past months thanks to an expansion into new countries with the Xiaomi Mi A1 and Moto X4 Android One version. One other device we've been hearing about is the HTC U11 Life, codenamed HTC Ocean_Life. Last month we got a glimpse at what it would look like and now HTC leakster @LlabTooFer has posted the alleged specs of the phone.

[Update x2: Confirmed hoax] Leaked slides hint at what might be the "Ultra pixel" phone by Google

On further inspection and after much more discussion, the Android Police team has come to the consensus that the slides shown in this video are, at the very least, probably not representative of anything we'll see at Google's October 4th event, if not outright fabrications. Unfortunately, it is very difficult to "debunk" something like this because it is hard to come by directly contradictory evidence, but tidbits from the alleged source like dual rear cameras - which we are quite certain are not a feature of either upcoming Pixel phone - lead us to deeply question the quality of this information.

BlackBerry's upcoming fullscreen Krypton shows its carbon fiber patterned back

The BlackBerry Krypton has been popping up on the rumor mill for a few months, but today we get our first look at what could be the device's back. As you can see from the image above, it has a carbon fiber patterned backside with a shiny BlackBerry logo. The camera has one LED flash though, as opposed to the dual LED on the KEYone.

According to previous rumors and leaks, the Krypton will be the DTEK50/60's successor with a fullscreen display and no QWERTY, unlike the KEYone. It should have a 16:9 1920 × 1080 display, a Snapdragon 625 or 626, 4GB of RAM, a fingerprint reader integrated in the home button, and a rather large 4,000mAh battery.

Samsung's upcoming Galaxy Note8 will reportedly be announced on August 23rd

The Galaxy Note8 has been a highly anticipated smartphone for some time, largely because of the success and subsequent catastrophic failure of its predecessor. Now, reports out of South Korea are pointing towards an August 23rd announcement, meaning that we have less than two months until we get to lay eyes on Samsung's latest flagship.

Sources: Google's second-gen Pixel XL, muskie, has been cancelled - probably to be replaced by even larger phone

Based on information from three separate sources, we are now confident that Google has shelved plans to release one of its upcoming Pixel phones. The device, codenamed 'muskie,' was intended to succeed the Pixel XL. While we know very little about muskie, and now likely will never learn much else, we are confident that this phone was supposed to be the second-generation Pixel XL.

We rate this information 9 out of 10 on our rumor confidence scale. We have corroborated this story with several sources we deem reliable. The good news? That doesn't mean there won't be a new Pixel XL - just that it's not going to be muskie.

The OnePlus 5 name and summer availability have been confirmed

The Verge today reported an exclusive confirmation of the name and release date for the previously rumored OnePlus 5. Expect to see the phone land this summer. It's been long rumored that OnePlus would be skipping the number 4 due to the bad luck associated with the number in China, and that seems to have held true. Their appreciation of Robert Horry (a former NBA Player whose jersey number on the Spurs and Lakers was 5) was also a contributing factor behind OnePlus' decision.

Google expected to discontinue YouTube Accelerator to focus on deploying WiFi networks

Google announced an interesting product last year called YouTube Accelerator that aimed to do away with buffering by caching YouTube videos on local networks. Accelerator initially launched in a handful of locations in the Philippines, but now Google is rumored to be dropping Accelerator. Instead, it's just going to work on rolling out faster WiFi in public spaces as part of the Google Station program.

LG G6 most likely launches in US on April 7th, with Korea launch a month earlier

At this point, there is very little we don't know about the upcoming LG G6. It will most likely have a Snapdragon 821 CPU (due to Samsung claiming the entire initial supply of Snapdragon 835 for the Galaxy S8), a 5.7" display, and ship with Google Assistant. It won't have a removable battery either - LG wanted the phone to be water-resistant instead.
