The updated Galaxy Note 7 is still having battery issuesGet ready for Google's Oct. 4 event with the new Pixel phone, Google Home and a new Chromecast Ultra. Plus, Google plans on launching its Andromeda hybrid OS later this year.
[MUSIC] What's happening? Brian Tong here, and welcome to everything Google that we can think of this week. It's still the biggest story in the smart phone world, and it's the latest on the Galaxy Note 7. Now, you've all been waiting to see how Samsung's updated Galaxy Note 7 refresh is going, but it may not look that good. That's after a report from a South Korean TV news network that says a growing number of complains are not claiming the updating phones are still battery issues. This time they already accelerated battery drain or difficulty charging once plug in. Now, on example of battery drain is something from 75% to 49% in just 39 minutes or gaining only a 10% charge through an entire night of charging. So far these incidents are limited to South Korea is Samsung is claiming these are also isolated incidents, so we'll have to wait and see. But it's really all about a preview to Google's October 4th event next week too. They, after Google released a tweet last week, it's never been explicitly said but the announcement of their new Google Pixel phone is a sure thing and they have been blasting the marketing on this like [MUSIC] No other Google phone that we've seen in the past. Now, leaks have showcase blurred out models of the pixel and pixel axel with its glass and aluminum construction. But reports by android police claim, they will come in silly color name such as Very silver, Quite black and the third alleged color. Really blue and we're being serious. Also [SOUND] Android Police reports that Google will have final pricing for the anticipated Amazon Echo rival Google Home and it will retail for 129 which is forty dollars less than the standard Amazon Echo. Google WiFi will also sell for $129 according to the reports, and will be able to connect to multiple Google WiFi access points to create a big single one. And the Chromecast Ultra 4k renders have been released for their newest 4k video streaming dongle that will sell for $69 according to reports with a newer, slightly sleeker design. But there's still more coming in the future from Google. An exclusive report from 9TO5Google claims Google plans to launch the anticipated Andromeda Android and Chrome hybrid OS on two devices, including a Huawei Nexus tablet and a convertible laptop that Android Police also corroborated. Now, Huawei tablets could be the one Evan Blass tweeted out a few weeks ago, but reports also confirm Google is testing out Andromeda on the Nexus 9 tablet as well. Timelines can be a lot further down but the Waway tablet is targeted to be ready before the end of the year, and the new pixel convertible laptop could be ready by the third quarter of 2017. And finally, in what looks like the worst Google self-driving car accident to date You can see the damage to the car's right door side and the crushed windows. But reports say that this was, in fact, a civilian driver at fault that ran a red light and collided with the Google car whose green light was on for at least 6 seconds. Google added that human error has played a part in 94% Of crashes reported to date.
