How the Samsung Galaxy S9 camera changes the game of mobile photography


Samsung’s new Galaxy S9 and S9+ each have an impressive new camera lens that can intelligently switch between two different apertures to capture the best daytime and low-light photos.

You’ve probably seen how it works in that Samsung ad that got a lot of play at the Oscars. The camera takes fantastic photos in almost any lighting conditions by constricting the lens to let in more or less light. The tech makes the S9 camera work more like a “real” camera, and it might even point the way for other smartphones. Will Apple and Google and everyone else soon copy Samsung for a change?

Google ends major OS support for Nexus phones and Pixel tablet


The first developer preview for the next major version of Android—Android P—is out today. These releases occasionally come out for supported Google devices, giving developers a heads-up on what changes to expect from a coming release. The supported device list for this release is a little slim, though. The Android P Developer Preview only works on the Pixel 1 and 1 XL, the Pixel 2 and 2 XL, and that’s it. Support has been dropped for the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P, and Pixel C tablet, which is a big change from the Android 8.1 Developer Preview.

After checking with Google, we confirmed that this isn’t a fluke of the developer preview program—the Nexus 5X, 6P, and Pixel C won’t be getting the final release of Android P. While they will still receive monthly security updates, Android 8.1 was the last major Android release for the Nexus phones and Pixel tablet.

The Nexus 6P and 5X launched with an update policy of two years for major OS updates and three years for security updates. They all launched in Q4 2015, so the two-year update window has been closed for some time now. In fact, technically they shouldn’t even have received an update to Android 8.1. Monthly security updates will still continue until at least November 2018.
