A prototype of the upcoming OnePlus 5 has been leaked, hiding in a body similar to the OnePlus 3. Right off the bat, you’ll notice that there is a dual camera setup on this device. OnePlus has partnered with DxO to build this camera as well, so it should be a good one. Otherwise, this prototype doesn’t really say much about the OnePlus 5. This isn’t how it will look at launch, so the prototype body doesn’t provide much information. There is no rear-mounted fingerprint sensor,.

The Android O Beta Program is open to join, and it’s a great way to test the latest version of Android. That being said, there’s a good reason that it’s a beta. Much of the software is not perfectly functional and some may be broken entirely. There are reports that Android Pay is not working with the beta software. It can work sometimes, but the app doesn’t open properly. This is also the case for Android Auto when it comes to support for head units. This is all to be expected.

During the second day of Google I/O, a big focus is on augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR), markets that Google wants to capitalize on. That includes Project Tango for AR and the Daydream VR platform. Devices are a necessity for Google to achieve that, and today ASUS announced some news that’ll help. ASUS will launch its ZenFone AR (which it announced way back in January of this year) this summer, and Verizon Wireless will be the exclusive US carrier for the handset. No pricing.

We know that it will be called the OnePlus 5, but we haven’t heard anything about specifications just yet. However, OnePlus is taking a page out of its playbook from last year and it’s starting to tease certain aspects of the upcoming device. That begins today with the camera. OnePlus has announced that it’s working with DxO on the OnePlus 5 camera. That will more than likely.

Emoji are getting a major overhaul in Android O, which is set to launch later this year. While Google had time to announce a lot earlier today, they probably didn’t feel like it was necessary to talk about emoji while on stage. But for anyone who hasn’t necessarily been a fan of the blobs that have run rampant on the Android platform for years, this is a change worth taking note of. Android O is getting updated emoji, and new emoji altogether. The platform will be the first to adopt.

In addition to Google Home, Google Assistant, and Android O, Google’s Daydream virtual reality effort got some stage time during today’s I/O keynote. Google revealed today that the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+ will be updated to support Daydream VR this summer. This is big news for the Daydream platform, as the GS8 and GS8+ are sure to be two of 2017’s biggest Android releases. This news is also notable because Samsung already has its own VR platform that the GS8 and GS8+ support, called Gear.

Google has spent several years working on virtual assistant technology, trying a variety of approaches. In 2016, Google announced the Google Assistant, the start of a project that would encompass what it had learned from previous attempts. Designed to work across a variety of devices with natural language skills, Assistant has quickly proven to be far more capable than its predecessors. Google isn’t slowing down, either. The company has a vision for Assistant, and today brings in variety of.
