Here's our best look yet at the Pixel 6 Pro's design and hardware specs

Oh boy, it sure is a great day for people who like mobile phones. Apparently there's some kind of big announcement going on in California, which a few people might be vaguely excited for. But I doubt anyone really cares about that: there are new Pixel 6 leaks to talk about!

Asus upgrades its ROG gaming phone with a faster CPU and a color rear display

Asus upgrades its ROG gaming phone with a faster CPU and a color rear display

Asus' bombastic ROG Phone 5 is only five months old, but it's already getting a mid-cycle refresh. Say hello to the ROG Phone 5s and 5s Pro, which look very nearly identical to the original. That's because they are: aside from a slight bump with the latest Snapdragon 888+ chipset and a marginally improved 360hz touch sampling rate on their 144Hz AMOLED screens, they're pretty much the same. The 5s sticks with the decorative dot matrix RGB graphics on the rear, while the 5s Pro (above) upgrades the black-and-white rear screen from the ROG 5 Ultimate to a new color OLED display.

We've all been awaiting Android 11 eagerly, but now that it's there, a subset of Pixel 4a users doesn't have the experience they were hoping for. Some people have taken to Google's and XDA Developers' forums, complaining about touchscreen sensitivity problems such as unresponsive scrolling and phantom touches.

OnePlus 8 Pro OxygenOS 10.5.5 update brings partial fix for 'green-tint' screen issue, plus touchscreen sensitivity tweaks

OnePlus 8 Pro OxygenOS 10.5.5 update brings partial fix for 'green-tint' screen issue, plus touchscreen sensitivity tweaks

As OnePlus promised just days ago, yet more updates for its latest pair of phones are now rolling out. Unlike the last couple of pre-release updates, which had near-identical changelogs, this one delivers a handful of much-appreciated fixes, including some un-named "display effect" optimizations and camera improvements. For the 8 Pro, it also brings better touch rejection along the edges of the touchscreen. But most importantly, in our testing, the 8 Pro's update delivers at least a partial fix for the so-called "green-tint" complaints.

Some OnePlus 8 Pro pre-orders have screen issues, but fixes are coming

OnePlus 8 Pro sales don't open until the 29th, but early pre-orders are already arriving, and we've already heard reports of problems with the phone's screen. As touched on in our review, complaints cover a range, including crushed/clipped blacks, low brightness irregularities/"green-tint" issues, image retention, and even lines appearing around the punch-hole camera cutout. Thankfully, OnePlus tells us it's aware of the reports of problems and working on software fixes for some of them.

Galaxy S10 has an eye-meltingly bright display, dead-on color reproduction

Samsung's new Galaxy S10 has started shipping and, like every new high-end phone from the company, the new flagship has the best screen DisplayMate has ever seen. Specs include an eye-searing 1,215 nit maximum brightness — though that number in isolation is just a bit misleading.

Some OnePlus 6Ts have an issue with waves of static on the display

Some OnePlus 6Ts have an issue with waves of static on the display

Based on a handful of reports on the OnePlus product forums, some 6T owners have run into a problem with their phone's display in which a pixelated sort of "wave" or pulse of bright colors travels up or down the screen. A reliable trigger can't seem to be found, but for those that are affected, it appears to happen more often on the lock screen while using either OnePlus' face recognition or the in-display fingerprint sensor to unlock the phone.

[Update: Next update will fix] Some OnePlus 6 displays flicker in bright light with adaptive brightness enabled

[Update: Next update will fix] Some OnePlus 6 displays flicker in bright light with adaptive brightness enabled

In the last couple of weeks, I noticed my own OnePlus 6 was having a bit of trouble when I was outdoors. If I went to check missed messages or train schedules on a sunny day, I'd notice the display seemed to flicker spastically between two different brightness levels. I pushed it out of my mind, assuming I imagined it, but according to reports compiled together by the folks at PiunikaWeb, I'm not alone.

External monitor display size scaling is coming to Chrome OS

External monitor display size scaling is coming to Chrome OS

Google shows no signs of slowing down when it comes to expanding the utility of Chrome OS as a platform. We're already convinced that the operating system can be used to do real work—at least, in our workflow here at Android Police—but more useful features are still being added with each new version. The latest addition to the Chrome OS Dev Channel is a "display size" setting for external screens.

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

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.
