What's going on, Brian Tong here and welcome to Googalicious for all the Google you can think of.
Let's jump in with an Ars Technica report that gives us the first look At Google's new operating system.
Now the OS is called Fuchsia, and these are images of some of its unfinished user interface.
Fuchsia ditches Linux, and will be based on a Google-developed microkernel called Magenta.
The project's documentation says, Magenta is designed for modern phones and modern personal computers, for fast processors and nontrivial amounts of RAM with arbitrary peripherals doing open ended computation.
Translation it is for current gen phones and computers moving forward.
Now Kyle Bradshaw at Hotfix.
net brings us a look at this super early OS build in action.
Now you can see some of these basic UI elements where the home screen is a vertical list The UI is named Armadillo and written with Google's Flutter SDK which was initially designed to create cross platform apps for Android and iOS.
Again, this is very early, but it looks like it focuses more on personal information Google Cards and recent apps with quick settings found directly on your profile image.
We'll keep watching how this develops but it's a first look at how Android is building its next OS beyond Android and Chrome OS.
All right, Samsung and Apple have been the kings of the US smartphone market for years but LG, yes, LG has solidified its spot as the number three phone maker in the US.
According to Strategy Analytics, LG's captured a record 20% of the US smartphone market this quarter, catching up with Samsung's 24.6%, while Apple is at 34.5%.
Now fourth place ZTE is at 6.7%, even more interesting, LG 6 was not included in these numbers since it was released in late April.
And LG's more affordable smartphones including the B 20 have been the main drivers while the Note 7 debacle Helped as well.
Next quarter's numbers could be more telling as they'll include both the LG G6 and the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8+.
All right OnePlus has confirmed to The Verge that their next gen phone the OnePlus 5 Will arrive this summer.
It will be the successor to the 1+ 3 and 3t, but they are skipping the number 4, because the number 4 is considered bad luck in China.
Now you know.
And you know what the best number for good luck is in Chinese culture?
8, so for all you people with yellow fever, You're welcome.
Now we've seen leaked images of the purported phone like this, rumours of a dual lens camera are out there, and even spec sheets claiming it might come with a beast like eight gigs of RAM.
And in another admission that didn't really need to happen, a number of OnePlus employees are fans of basketball's Robert Horry, AKA Big Shot Rob.
His jersey number was number five.
And two paintings of Orre even hang in OnePlus's Shenzhen offices.
They said that also came into play for naming the phone.
Hey OnePlus, too much information.
And in my favorite Story this week, if you love Waze, you've been able to change the voice navigation to voices like Steven Colbert, and Kevin Harp.
But now, the latest update will allow you to record your own custom direction prompts.
You can access the voice recorder in the Waze settings under Sound and Voice, you'll just record all the basic navigation and phrases, and you're good to go.
So thank you Waves.
This is the best gift we could ever get from you.
All right, that's gonna do it for this week.

Thanks so much for watching we'll catch till next time for some of that Googlicious.
