About two months after the release of Android 13, Google introduced its “little sister” – Android 13 Go Edition. This simplified version of the OS is designed to be installed on inexpensive phones. However, the new version has several important differences.
If in the previous version of Go the company mainly focused on new features, then in Android 13 Go the interface has undergone changes. In fact, Android 13 Go implements the Material You design with dynamic colors as in full-fledged Android. Yes, it was not without simplifications, but now the Go version at least will not look like a poor relative against the background of an older sister. The themes on the lock screen and the Quick Settings menu are almost identical to Pixel phones.
Another important innovation is that Android 13 Go adds support for updates to the Google Play system (Project Mainline), this makes it much easier to install Android updates and applications on the phone: they are delivered directly from Google to users (so much faster than relying on promptness of the phone manufacturer).
Google also noted that Android 13 Go requires at least 2GB of RAM. The release of serial models based on the new OS is expected in 2023.
Oppo Find N2 Flip is the first clamshell smartphone without a screen wrinkle, according to published live photos.
On December 15, Oppo will officially unveil its new foldable smartphones, but photos of the Oppo Find N2 Flip clamshell phone have already been published online. And, judging by them, there is no crease on the screen at all.
One of the pictures was published by Ice Universe insider. He accompanied the picture below with the words: “Where is the crease? Where’s she? Where’s she?”. Indeed, visually the fold is not observed. If so, then Oppo has managed to do what Samsung has been unable to do for four years.
However, the lack of a crease isn’t the only feature of the Find N2 Flip. The device will receive the largest external screen for devices in its class – its diagonal will be 3.26 inches. And in this regard, the Find N2 Flip will outperform both the Moto RAZR 2022 and the Galaxy Z Flip4.
In addition, the Oppo Find N2 Flip will prove to be a powerful smartphone, as the Dimensity 9000 SoC is rumored to be attributed to it. Finally (again, according to rumors), the Oppo Find N2 Flip will not repeat its predecessor’s Chinese exclusive status and will be sold outside of China.
