Snapdragon 845, 660, and 636 Will Get Android P Earlier

Qualcomm

While the first beta version of Android P is now available for a handful of devices, Qualcomm has announced that it has worked with Google to build a "streamlined implementation of Android P" for devices running on the Snapdragon series of processors. However, we're curious to know if Wear OS can match Apple's watchOS in terms of its apps support.

Wear OS got nary a mention at Google's I/O keynote this year. Google renamed the Android Wear Platform to Wear OS sometime back and while we expected new features for the platform, Google has failed to deliver them. Following that, the current Snapdragon 2100 was only slightly more modified with changes to packaging, sensors, and software. No final word yet when Google plans on launching the new Wear OS version, but it will naturally happen only after Android P itself has been released. Alongside this, the up and coming processor will convey unusual move up to the battery life and will bolster all the Bluetooth and Wi-Fi standards. In relation to battery life, Kedia elaborated further going on to say "You'll see improved battery life when interacting with the watch, but also more importantly, when you're not".

The company announced Wear OS Developer Preview 2 yesterday with a focus on battery life and bringing a better experience to the watch with the Google Assistant. Users can get to know the time by pressing the side button.

Williams beats Higgins to win third world title
Williams is the oldest world champion since his fellow countryman Reardon won in 1978 at the age of 45. Another trademark clearance from Higgins, 82 from 47-0 down, got him within two frames.

That's going to change in the next generation chip.

In the past couple of years, there have been a large number of brands that have come on board the Android Wear wagon, most of these are the same watch inside but different design.

Presumably, a new chipset launched in 2018 would features a smaller process size than the 2100's 28nm.

Twin Mining Accidents Kill 23 In Pakistan
In Quetta (Western Pakistan ) there was a gas explosion in the mine, at least 23 miners were killed. Another seven people died in a separate blast on Saturday, which also wounded two people.

All chips will have Bluetooth and Wi-Fi as standard, while fitness and sports-focused chips will have Global Positioning System. Project Treble did help in getting quicker updates for several devices, but we'll need chip manufacturers on board if we have to fix the problem.

Google showcased a demo where you could control the lights around your house by talking to the Assistant on your smartwatch.
