Breathe in, OxygenOS is finally here

It has finally launched – China-based device makers OnePlus has finally released the first build of their in-house version of Android called OxygenOS.

Mystery Sony phone clears the FCC, could be the Xperia Z4

No doubt the Xperia Z4 will be Sony's next flagship Android phone. The company skipped the Mobile World Congress last month but we saw the Xperia M4 Aqua midrange phone and the Xperia Z4 Tablet.

Unofficial image renders of the Huawei P8 Lite sighted

The first renders of the Huawei P8 Lite are out. Well, we can't quite call this official because Huawei hasn't made any formal announcement yet. We're expecting it to be introduced this April though after all the leaked images and the recent TENAA  certification sighting. Some European distributor shared these images and then Roland Quandt (@quandt) then posted the images on Twitter. Now we have an idea how the phone would look like--not really different from the Huawei P8.
