Recorded July 26 8:00 ET

Android P’s final beta has hit the airwaves, and Pixels and Nexi are downloading furiously. What does this mean? We’re that much closer to finding out the elusive Android P name - oh and gesture navigation too.

Android O has taken the world by storm - doubling its install base to...10%. This is actually really good news for Android and Android users and we explain why.

In an assistant showdown, Google Assistant reigned supreme in every category except one - and that one is a little weird given what we know about Android and Google.

The Google Pixel has one of the best cameras on the market today, and one of our editors is calling for a better camera app to match. Spoiler alert - not all of use agree that it’s necessary.

And finally, we take an exclusive peek at a new midrange HTC phone. Could this be the HTC U12 Life? It’s very possible and it’s rumored to come at an attractive price too.

All this and more this week on the Android Authority podcast!

One of the biggest devices of the year is just a few weeks away. Is the Note a spec bump, or is it the big beefy powerhouse you’ll want in your pocket? All of that will be covered in this featured story of the Android Authority Podcast.

The Android Authority podcast is the weekly podcast where we look at all the top stories from the past seven days and drill down into the details. But in this episode, we are doing something different.

This is a different kind of podcast episode which we are calling a featured story. A featured story is where we take a deep dive into one topic. This will be a bonus episode that we’ll do an undetermined number of times, but probably at least once per month. Perhaps it will be interviews with industry leaders. Maybe it will be a review of a device that was just released. This time, it’s a rumor roundup of one of the biggest devices of the year, the Note 9.

Here's our article about it.
