Pixel 2 could launch in two weeks, Pixel 2 XL next month

  Pixel 2 could launch in two weeks, Pixel 2 XL next month Google’s Pixel event is happening just two days from now, but it sounds like we’ll have to wait at least two more weeks after that before the first devices start shipping. The October 19th date makes plenty of sense. Last year, the Pixel was announced on October 5th and shipped on October 20th; this year, the Pixel 2 is being announced on October 4th, so the 19th would be consistent.

The announcement puts the white version of the Essential phone nearly two months behind the black model, which started shipping on August 25th. It ’ s not clear what accounted for the delay — whether it ’ s a matter of getting the materials right (not unheard of: years ago

Someone hacked the White House chief of staff’s personal phone

  Someone hacked the White House chief of staff’s personal phone For months, White House chief of staff John Kelly has been compromised by digital attackers, according to a new report from Politico. The breach was discovered after Kelly reported functional glitches to White House tech support over the summer. It’s still unclear when the initial infection occurred, although the glitches had persisted for months. The infection was further described in a memo circulated by White House staff in September.Notably, the compromised phone was Kelly’s personal device, rather than the secure phone issued by the government.

It’s not clear what accounted for the delay — whether it’s a matter of getting the materials right (not unheard of: years ago, Apple delayed the white iPhone 4 by 10 months) or just making sure enough of any model of the phone would be available at all.

Essential’s announcement also follows news that the phone’s camera has been updated to hopefully take better photos and that a beta of Android Oreo and several other new features would arrive in the coming weeks. With Apple, Google, and Samsung all announcing flagship phones since Essential shipped, the company has had a hard time keeping eyes on its first and only device. With the white model finally arriving and some updates coming soon, Essential may be trying for something of a soft relaunch to get itself back in the spotlight.

Review: Google's Pixel 2 Is the Best Android Phone for Anyone Tired of Samsung .
The new Pixel phones are getting another handy new feature that Samsung phones have long had: an always-on display. That means that even when the screen is turned off, you’ll be able to see things like the time and notifications. It’s a welcome addition that makes your smartphone even more useful as a bedside clock. Google is taking this one step further with a new feature called Now Playing, which identifies songs and shows the title and artist name on screen.
