Google Camera gets twist gesture in Nougat Dev Preview 5

Google Camera best camera apps for android

Motorola fans are probably already familiar with this one. The Moto X and its ilk arrived with the ability to launch the default camera app using a rapid double-twist gesture that’s almost exactly like what you would do if your watch gets stuck too high up on your wrist. If you’re inside the camera, then performing this motion would swap between front and rear camera with a satisfying haptic rush. Now Google Camera v4.1 on the fifth Nougat developer’s preview is getting a similar feature.

Although you can’t launch the app cold with this gesture, you are able to swap between cameras. It can be a little counter-intuitive at first, but once you’ve done it a few times, using this method rather than tapping the icon on the screen becomes second nature.

OnePlus 3 in Soft Gold Arrives Tonight

On the day OnePlus announced the OnePlus 3, there was a bit of confusion surrounding the available color choices out of the gate. In promo imagery, we saw both silver and gold models, yet only the silver has ever been up for purchase. Tonight that changes, as OnePlus will make the “Soft Gold” variant available in the US before rolling it out to other countries.

OnePlus says that Soft Gold is only available in limited quantities, so if you are interested, you may want to be ready the minute it goes live in their store. Tonight at midnight Eastern (9PM Pacific) is your time if you live in the States. 

Live elsewhere and also want the Soft Gold One Plus 3? Below, you’ll find the entire schedule of availability.

Lenovo K5 Note expected to launch in India with 4 GB of RAM


Lenovo launched the Vibe K5 Note back in January this year in China, rather surprisingly alongside the Vibe K4 Note, but the company is now preparing to bring this smartphone to India, with the device expected to launch next week, on August 1. If you’ve been looking forward to the latest affordable offering from Lenovo, there’s some great news that should get you even more excited about this launch.

A post on Lenovo India’s Twitter page teases the fact that the Indian edition of the K5 Note will feature 4 GB of RAM, instead of the 2 GB of RAM that was available with the original version. The K5 Note is an improved version of the Vibe K4 Note that had launched earlier in India, and sports a full metal body. Apart from the upgrade in the amount of RAM, we can expect the other specifications to be similar to the Chinese variant, including a 5.5-inch Full HD display, a large 3,500 mAh battery, and 4G LTE support.
