Wireless earbuds are all the rage, especially since manufacturers began making the unfortunate trend of removing the headphone jack from smartphones. Now, it appears that OnePlus is also working on a pair of wireless earbuds, dubbed the ‘OnePlus Bullets Wireless,’ which could potentially launch alongside the upcoming OnePlus 6, according to a Bluetooth Certification listing spotted by Nashville Chatter.
The listing was filed today by OnePlus Technology under the model number BT31B.
Hello Games, the developer behind space exploration title No Man’s Sky, announced today that the game’s largest update ever will arrive later this summer alongside a launch on the Xbox One. Details about the update, which the company is referring to as No Man’s Sky NEXT, are scarce. It will be free, like previous updates such as last year’s Atlas Rises, which introduced planetary quick-travel, land vehicles, and base building. But beyond that, we don’t know what the update will involve.
“We called this update NEXT, because it’s an important next step on a longer journey for us and the community,” writes Hello Games co-founder Sean Murray. “We’ve been working our socks off on this and it’s by far our biggest update so far. It will be…
Death Squared [$ 6.99] is a perfect example of how I believe the Switch/Mobile dichotomy can positively affect the App Store. While at its heart a relatively straightforward puzzle caper, Death Squaredexuded charm in every detail, and conjured up an impressive Portal-esque feel with its presentation and polish. However, while the game achieved significant success on the Switch, its premium mobile release has proven to be slightly less profitable. Even though its $ 6.99 price point was still a substantial saving on its console brother, Death Squared failed to make a splash when it launched on the App Store in February. In an attempt to reach an even greater audience with their latest creation, developer SMG Studios has announced that an Android version of Death Squared will launch this weekend, which will coincide with a $ 3.99 sale for the title across its mobile platforms.
I’m a huge fan of SMG’s content across all platforms, with the likes of Thumb Drift [Free] and One More Bounce [Free] nailing the compromise between a successful free-to-play monetisation with enticing and substantial gameplay. Death Squared really felt like a huge step up for the studio, and so seeing it not perform as well as the developers may have hoped is disappointing, if somewhat predictable. I really hope that SMG manage to keep up their impressive run of essential App Store titles in the future, even if they take a guise similar to their slightly older releases. The co-op puzzle action of Death Squared is a lot of fun, whether on iPhone, Switch or soon to be Android, and at a $ 3.99 price point I can definitely recommend giving the game a look, especially for anyone lamenting the steady demise of free-to-play mobile games. Check out Death Squared on Android later this week, and let us know your impressions of any version of the title on our forum thread.

Google has revealed that the first smartphones running Android Oreo (Go edition) will become official at MWC next week. The company hasn’t named any of the upcoming products, but mentions that some of them will sell for less than $ 50, which is rather amazing if it pans out (and there are no caveats).

It’s a streamlined iteration of Android, which ships with optimized default apps and an optimized variant of the Play Store that highlights lightweight apps. Google tells us to expect 15% faster…
