Google has released the first Developer Beta of Android 12, and as the name makes it clear, it is intended for developers to test the new APIs and accordingly tweak their apps in accordance with Google’s new vision for its mobile operating system. This is far from what the stable version looks like, but the first developer-centric build of Android 12 has already given us a glimpse of the changes that will greet users, both major and minor. Here’s our pick for the top Android 12 features we’ve seen so far: NOTE : Some of the Android 12 features mentioned have to be enabled manually, or are still in the development phase in the first Developer Preview released by Google. Scrolling screenshot Personally, no other convenience tops it for me than a native scrolling screenshot feature.

OnePlus 9 Pro leak predicts support for 4K video capture at 120 FPS

OnePlus is rumored to launch its next wave of flagship killer phones – the OnePlus 9, 9 Pro, and 9E (aka 9 Lite) later this month. Multiple leaks that have emerged so far have given us an idea about what to expect from the most powerful member of the aforementioned trio – the OnePlus 9 Pro – both in terms of design and internal hardware. Now, a fresh leak claims to show an impressive camera capability upgrade for the device, alongside a few other specifications. OnePlus 9 Pro will also allow 8K video capture at 30 FPS Alleged screenshots of the camera app’s UI on OnePlus 9 Pro, courtesy of Techmaniacs , shows the option to capture 4K videos at 120 FPS frame rate . Now, this is a big boost compared to its predecessor, which locked 4K video capture at up to 60 FPS.

Microsoft plans xCloud game streaming resolution upgrade from 720p to 1080p

Microsoft is currently at work trying to bring its xCloud game streaming service to more platforms, with a web-based solution currently being in the test phase for its arrival on PC and iOS . But if you’ve been playing games over the cloud on your Android phone or tablet, you must be aware of the 720p resolution limit, which is honestly quite disappointing. However, Microsoft is looking to bump the cloud game streaming resolution to 1080p, and the tests are already underway. xCloud game streaming won't look like a blurry mess on tablets anymore As per separate reports from The Verge and Windows Central , Microsoft has started testing 1080p streaming for the xCloud service. However, it is unclear when the resolution boost will go live widely for all users. The improvement in visual quality likely comes as part of an infrastructure upgrade that involves replacing the older Xbox One S server blades with more powerful Xbox Series X boards.

HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro review: keeps getting better and better

If you’ve been following HUAWEI and its development over the past quinquennial, you know very well that the two flagships, the spring P-series, and the autumn Mate-series are two different animals. The P40 – which earned our  Road Warrior award for the Pro version , and the  Best Camera of 2020 for the Pro+ variant  – is aimed towards the creative, focusing on multimedia and photography. The Mate-series is the one pushing the limits of performance. It is also the device that usually introduces the latest iteration of the Kirin chipset, and other advancements. That has certainly been the case with the Mate 40 Pro, bringing even more power to the palm of your hands. Three months after starting using it, this is our HUAWEI Mate 40 Pro review, long-term.
