The upcoming Pixel 6 and 6 Pro are expected to be the first Google smartphones to ship with a Google-designed processor. According to the latest rumor, they could also be Google’s first phones that come with a promise of 5 years of software updates.

Meanwhile, Microsoft is continuing to refine Windows 11 ahead of launch. The company released a second preview build to members of the Windows Insiders program today, and it brings a number of small tweaks including a new search box in the Start menu.

  1. Still using a phone that was released back in early 2013 with Jelly Bean and only upgraded to Lollipop. Not as snappy as my newer phone, but any flagships from that era are still perfectly capable of running YouTube and most other Google apps, at least until they require another forced update that simply won’t support the older operating systems. Guess it’s fine if they want to drop support, but in that case, it’s not okay when they bar older apps from working, which will eventually happen. Just more e-waste of perfectly fine hardware.

  2. Pixel 6 – Googles own SoC .. I am not even that pissed that its gonna probably cost 900€ and its SoC wont be as powerful as Snapdragon 888 when 888+ will be the standard … I am worried about app and other kinds of compatibilities .. Is google gonna bother with supporting Aptx ? Are developers gonna bother adding support for a SoC in so few phones even if its a Google SoC ( I know google can incentivize developers but its no Apple ecosystem anyway ) ?
