Motorola is sending Save the Dates to an event on April 19. AndroidPIT got hold of the invitation, which reveals that the event will be held in São Paulo, Brazil. The invitation also includes the phrase “helloyou”.
What the invitation doesn’t say is what Motorola is planning to show at this event. One possibility is the Moto G6, which is expected to have Plus and Play variants. It’s now been a little more than a year since the Moto G5 debuted, so the time is right for another entry is Motorola’s line of affordable Android smartphones.
Earth Day is happening this month, and Pokémon Go is hosting a special event to celebrate.
The first Pokémon Go Earth Day Clean Up will happen on April 22. On that date, all players will get access to a special avatar item. As more people play the game on that date, unique in-game rewards will open up:
1,500 Trainers – Unlock 2x catch Stardust for Ground, Water, and Grass-type Pokémon will be unlocked for 48hrs
3,000 Trainers – Unlock 3x catch Stardust for Ground, Water, and Grass-type Pokémon for 48 hrs will be unlocked for Trainers around the world.
Players can also donate to the Mission Blue Foundation, a group that works to protect the oceans.
Pokémon Go players will be able to participate in clean-up events that will be held around the world. There will be 37 events in 12 countries, including the U.S., Japan, Taiwan, the U.K., France, Belgium, Portugal, Spain, and Italy.
Huawei sub-brand Honor is holding its next unveiling event in London on May 15. It has started sending out press invites for the occasion, and you can see the associated promo image below. That’s obviously the outline of a smartphone, so it’s pretty clear what the event will be about. The must-have buzzword of 2018, “AI”, is present too, so you know this will be a high-end device of some sort. That’s why we assume the Honor 10 is the handset in question, the one making its debut at this May 15 London event. It would complement the Honor View 10 in the company’s portfolio, and should…
Honor just sent out media invites for an event on May 15th in London and from the teaser image it is evident that the company is launching a smartphone and it is expected to be Honor 10. It looks like the company is again focusing on A.I which is evident from ‘Beauty in AI’ caption. Following the trend of launching its Honor flagships around this time of the year, the company is expected to introduce the Honor 10 and it will be powered by the same chipset that is powering the Honor View 10; the Kirin 970 64-bit octa-core processor. The Honor 10 will also pack slim bezel-less design with a 5.7-inches display and is expected to run on Android 8.1 Oreo with EMUI 8.1 on top with improved A.I features and enhancements. Just like the Huawei P20 series, the Honor 10 is expected to come with a top-notch. It will have dual-rear cameras and a front-facing fingerprint sensor. The live-image of the Honor 10 surfaced recently, however, the design of the phone is partially hidden given that it is in testing. It remains to be seen what Honor has planned up its sleeve and also if its ships with or without a notch. May … Fone Arena

On Tuesday, Apple held a special education event where the company announced new iPads, updates to iWork, GarageBand, and Clips, and much more. At the beginning of the event Apple CEO, Tim Cook, spoke about how education is important to Apple because of their love for kids and teachers. “We know that our products can […] Read More… iDrop News
HMD has scheduled an event in India for April 4 with hints that it will be about Android One phones. That doesn’t narrow it down much, but Twitter user @IshanAgarwal24 has dug up this image, which suggests the Nokia 7 plus will be exclusive to Amazon India. Apparently, the 7 Plus will be sold through flash sales, similar to the sales approach of Chinese companies. The Nokia 7 Plus may be exclusive to Amazon India There’s a chance that more phones will be shown at the event – Nokia 8 Sirocco and Nokia 6 (2018) – but they may not be exclusive to Amazon. The Nokia 6 (the original)…
In addition to our standalone articles covering the latest news and rumors at MacRumors, this Quick Takes column provides a bite-sized recap of other headlines about Apple and its competitors on weekdays.
Apple’s invite made it very clear that the event would be focused on education announcements, but there were still quite a few hardware and software possibilities that had a slim chance of being—but ultimately weren’t—mentioned:
Lower-priced MacBook Air: KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo said a more affordable MacBook Air will launch in the second quarter of 2018. Bloomberg‘s Mark Gurman said the notebook probably wouldn’t be ready for Tuesday’s event, which proved to be the case.
When to expect it: Apple has refreshed the MacBook, MacBook Air, and MacBook Pro in April or May before, and announced the updates via press releases, so that’s one possibility. Otherwise, the new MacBook Air will likely debut at WWDC 2018 on June 4, near the end of the second quarter.
AirPower: A trio of reports claimed Apple’s multi-device charging mat will be available to order by the end of March. However, despite Apple’s online store going down ahead of Tuesday’s event, the AirPower wasn’t anywhere to be found when the site came back online.
When to expect it: There are still two weekdays remaining in March, so there’s a possibility the AirPower could be added to Apple’s online store within 48 hours. Otherwise, the reports may have been off the mark. Apple has only confirmed that the AirPower will be available at some point in 2018.
When to expect it: A sketchy Chinese report recently claimed that Apple will unveil a new iPhone SE at WWDC 2018 in June. While certainly a possibility, Apple hasn’t introduced a smartphone at the event since the iPhone 4 in 2010. Beyond WWDC, a new iPhone SE could conceivably be announced in September alongside a new iPhone X and iPhone X Plus.

Gold or (PRODUCT)RED edition iPhones: Rosenblatt Securities analyst Jun Zhang and Twitter account OnLeaks said Apple may release a (PRODUCT)RED edition of the iPhone 8, iPhone 8 Plus, and/or iPhone X. Ben Geskin and Japanese website Mac Otakara expect a gold iPhone X.
When to expect it: On March 21, 2017, Apple unveiled a special (PRODUCT)RED edition of the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus. If it plans on doing similar this year, then perhaps we’ll see a wave of press releases highlighting availability of the new colors and the AirPower very soon.
iOS 11.3: Apple could have used its event to mention when the software update will be publicly released, but it elected not to do so.
Apple’s last education-focused event prior to Tuesday was in January 2012 in New York, where it announced iBooks 2 with interactive textbooks, iBooks Author, and a new version of iTunes U for iPad.
Just over six years later, many teachers and IT directors for school systems were eager to see what Apple had in store for them. And now that the event has concluded, many of those individuals have shared their initial thoughts, which aren’t entirely positive. We’ve rounded up some articles below:
Today is press day at the New York International Auto Show, which opens to the public on Friday. Many automakers have unveiled vehicles compatible with CarPlay, including the 2019 Toyota Corolla Hatchback and 2019 Lexus UX:
