We've all seen fingerprint scanners making their way onto smartphones since last year, but have you ever noticed why midrange smartphones don't have any? Now it seems Motorola's upcoming midranger smartphone will be the first midrange to sport a fingerprint scanner.



Evan Blass has shared an image of a fingerprint scanner/home button of the unreleased Moto G4 Plus. However, when you compare it with the leaked Motorola phone from last week, the similarities are uncanny.

Expect more news regarding the upcoming Moto X and Moto G4 Plus to come soon.

While Google has been pushing out a ton of OS and app updates, the Drive team got out one of its own. This is a perfectly good update on its own, but it also includes clues to some upcoming features, too. In this update, you'll find a newly revised look and operation for uploading files, and there's even a color picker for folders. (Yey!) On the teardown side, we can look forward to recommendations for files, a shortcut to "Team Drives," and possibly even another form of device backup.

Huawei’s VR headset is eerily similar to the Gear VR

Posted: 15 Apr 2016 03:23 PM PDT

Virtual reality is immensely popular and manufacturers are all trying to grab a piece of the pie. The latest to get in on the action is Huawei, which just announced the Huawei VR, the company's VR headset that bears a striking resemblance to Samsung's Gear VR in both design and function. The Huawei VR, however, works only with Huawei devices, and a mere three of them at that. Compatible devices include the Huawei P9, P9 Plus and Mate 8.

Using the Huawei VR is much like using the Gear VR. Users can open the VR app on their phone, pop open the front cover on the Huawei VR and insert their device into it. To interact with the app, the right side of the headset features a touch panel, back button and volume keys. The headset features a 95-degree field of view and also contains an anti-blue light filter to make it easier on your eyes. Users should also be aware that Huawei's devices only pack 1080p displays, so graphics may not appear as crispy as they would on some competitor's headsets.

Additionally, the Huawei VR is designed in such a way that it prevents users from wearing glass while using the device. That being said, the lenses of the device are adjustable for myopia, down to -7.00.

Huawei is pushing the content as a main selling point. At launch, the Huawei VR app will provide over 4000 free movies, 40 free games, 350 panoramic images and 150 panoramic tours.

There's no word on pricing or a release date yet, but rest assured, we'll keep you posted when Huawei announces that information.
