Welcome to Alphabet City, this is the show that covers everything related to Alphabet Inc., if you don't know what Alphabet is, you haven't been watching this show.
I'm your guide, Iyaz Akhtar, and most of you are the audience of majesticness.
Some of you aren't the angry audience, some of you aren't the bad audience but either way I appreciate you being the audience.
Today, we're going to focus on Google things.
We'll tak about fortnight again, the Note 9 is real and [UNKNOWN] but first stop, the Pixel can't stop leaking.
Let's head on over to Pixel Park.
A video popped up online showing off what looks to be the pixel 3XL.
Yep, still got that deep notch and a big fat chin.
It looks like it's running Android Pi.
As the person thumbs through the settings, you can see an option for squeeze and release for assistant.
That suggests you can launch assistant.
By squeezing the phone's sides, like the pixel two's active edge feature.
The model in the video has 64 gigabytes of storage.
The white back looks like it's glass.
It even has the Google g on the rear.
There's a green power button.
Button for pizzazz.
On the bottom is a USB-C port and a SIM slot.
It also looks like it has an always on screen.
The description of the YouTube video says the Pixel 3 XL has a Snapdragon 845 processor, 4GB of RAM, and a screen res of 2,960 by 1,440.
There are also pictures online that show USBC ear buds and a headphone jack to USBC adapter, which would be included in the box.
Hey, Google, if you're watching this, how about just jumping the gun and release the Pixel 3 now?
We've got, like, fifty days until the rumored October 4th launch date.
Go all Don Draper and change the conversation.
Anyway, Fortnite is out for Android.
To play the game on the upcoming Note 9 or the Tab S4 you get an exclusive skin called Galaxy.
Also remember you can't get the game in the Play Store.
You'll have to head on over to Fortnite.com.
Let's head on over to Android Avenue.
Samsung held its unpack event and it was crazy underwhelming.
The Note 9 starts at $1000 for the 128 gigabyte model and costs a whooping $1250 for the top of the line 9. Is it amazingly different than then Note 8?
Not really, yeah the Note 9 has a bigger screen, a huge battery, faster processor and more storage by default The biggest difference is the stylus.
The new snazzy S pen has bluetooth and can act as a remote for your phone.
The pen gets charged by the Note 9. If it dies, it still works as a stylus.
1 minute of charge gets you 30 minutes of bluetooth usage.
Hey that's a neat feature but it's not a must have feature.
Also, pretty much everything that was leaked about the Note 9 was true.
Honestly, the most interesting stuff, was that ridiculous looking speaker called the galaxy home and the new galaxy watch.
Since that has little to nothing to do with Androids, it has no place on this show.
Android police reports that a new Android phone is coming from Palm They'll be available on Verizon network.
Take a look at the picture.
Android police says it's codenamed Pepito.
Because, of course, it is.
Pepito would have a 3.3'' screen.
Yeah, you heard me right.
It is 2018 and we're reporting a rumor that Palm is introducing an every phone But there's more.
It would be running a Snapdragon 435 processor and pack three gigabytes of RAM.
Pepito also has a tiny, 800 milliamp hour battery for some reason.
What is happening?
Also, wasn't Palm dead?
Didn't HP eat them up and then run Palm into the ground?
I had to Wikipedia this, turns out the Palm brand was sold to TCL in 2014 or 2015.
In news you guys told me you don't care about, the red Hydrogen One phone will launch November 2nd on AT&T and Verizon.
If you preorder the phone and as you've told me, you have not.
You'll get it October 9. If you're new to this show, the RED Hydrogen One phone is an android device that claims to have a holographic display.
Our fantastic audience, now known henceforth as the Alphabet Citizens have compared the idea to the Nintendo 3DS and are not impressed.
I, personally want to believe.
Over at the Android Developers Blog, Google is laying down the law on notches.
The post says devices may only have up to one cutout on each short edge of the device.
That means that you won't see multiple cutouts on a single edge, or more than two cutouts on a device.
You won't see a cutout on the left or right long edge of the device.
Within these constraints, devices can place cutouts wherever they want.
Yeah, you tell them, Google.
Onto Comment Cove.
This is the part of the show where we shine a spotlight on the best audience in the world, you guys.
Jasper says, can you please give me a shout out?
Sure, what up, Jasper?
n051d3 says, when's the last episode of this show?
n051d3 keep watching, every episode's the last episode.
Fujan Crypto Reports says, what do people use the Note for anyway?
It seems very large, not very aesthetically beautiful, and possibly a waste.
What Is its purpose and target market?
How many are sold compared to other phones?
Hey, Fujan, I actually use a Note as my personal phone.
One day, I was writing out some thoughts on cocktail napkins.
[UNKNOWN] Pixel 2 XL was also there.
I was mind mapping.
I stared at my phone and the napkins and thought, why on Earth can't I just write on my phone?
So I trade in my Pixel for a Note so maybe it's for weirdos like me.
Thanks to everyone for their comments.
