  • Android P new

In some (more) good news today Google and Qualcomm have told Wareable.com that a new, and much improved chipset is on the horizon.

Wear OS will extend battery life in two ways. With the introduction of Google Assistant for the WearOS platform, Google has tried improving the user experience. With Google's revamped Wear OS and Qualcomm's brand new chips, Google's smartwatch platform should get a major boost and will be able to compete with Apple's Watch lineup.

MLB London Series Set for June 2019
The series will be MLB's first-ever regular-season games in Europe. We could not be happier that Commissioner Robert D. Manfred Jr. has been able to make this a reality.

Qualcomm says they have been working on the new chip since the 2100, but delays have occurred due to them rethinking the system architecture altogether. "We are excited to work with Google to pre-integrate our software with Android P, making it production ready for OEMs", said Mike Genewich, director of product management at Qualcomm. One of these is an enhanced battery saving mode that is being added to the developer build of Wear OS along with support for Actions. "The next platform will be the first with purpose-built chips", said Kedia. Users can get to know the time by pressing the side button. Evidence of the latest development can already be seen with the Android P Beta that is already available for a variety of non-Google Pixel devices, including Essential PH-1, Nokia 7 Plus, OnePlus 6, Oppo R15 Pro, Sony Xperia XZ2, Vivo X21, Vivo X21 UD, and Xiaomi Mi MIX 2S.

We reported on Actions for Wear OS when Google announced it ahead of I/O, and these will be key for controlling smart home devices and other services that can be controlled through the Assistant.

Armenia Opposition Leader Pashinyan Elected New PM
The signing of the order is a formality required by the Consitution whereby the president appoints the elected Prime Minister. The ruling party said it will not nominate their own candidate for the second round, just like in the first round.

Describing the 2100 as "aging" is too polite a term, built on a 28nm manufacturing process, it was outdated when it launched back in February 2016.

With Wear OS DP1, we learned about things like the dark UI becoming the new default, SDK restrictions aimed at improving stability, and new rules for background apps meant to prolong battery life. The SoCs will come in different variations, all with Bluetooth and Wi-Fi and some with Global Positioning System and LTE. This does presume that all Wear OS devices will have at least one button. And Kedia is right in that smartwatches look bad when you aren't using them.

DHS to prosecute all illegal border crossings, potentially separating families
Sessions says he has sent 35 prosecutors to the region to work on these cases. "And Congress has already set them", Sessions said. According to the report, families that are detained for illegal crossings have typically been kept together in the past.
