In the world of Android, the biggest story this past week was undoubtedly the unveiling of the LG V20, which LG officially announced back on last Tuesday evening, complete with a dual-camera setup on the back that contains 16MP + 8MP wide-angle camera sensors, a 32-Bit Quad DAC, and a Snapdragon 820 processor. Aside from the latest LG smartphone, the FAA is advising passengers not to use their Galaxy Note 7 phones on flights, following the official recall of the phone that was started back on September 2nd. There was at least one noteworthy leak that surfaced this past week, as benchmarks were leaked last Sunday for the rumored Google Marlin device, while rumors surfaced that the Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones coming from Google might launch with Android 7.1 Nougat instead of Android 7.0.
Google is also rumored to be working with Huawei again on another Nexus device, although this time the rumor states that it will be for a new tablet, and not just any tablet, but one with a 7-inch display making it a new Nexus 7 refresh. The Pixel XL is also rumored to be a Telstra exclusive in Australia, but more importantly that rumor states that pre-orders of the device are to begin on October 4th which is the rumored date for Google's announcement of the Pixel and Pixel XL. A new rumor also mentions that Samsung is allegedly in talks with both NVIDIA and AMD for use of their GPUs in future Exynos processors.
