devices to enter a never-ending bootloop, Google and Huawei have finally started the procedure of reimbursing up to $400 to the owners of defective phones.
IANS | San Francisco After coming together to create Google's popular "Nexus 6P
" smartphone, Chinese smartphone maker Huawei's sub-brand Honor has become the first test-bed for Google's in-development operating system (OS) Fuchsia.
Google has released a new developer preview for Android 8.1, which is now available for the company's Pixel and Pixel 2 smartphones, as well as its older Nexus 6P
and 5X phones.
While the Beta Program issues these updates over the air, the developer preview is only compatible with the Nexus 5X, Nexus 6P
, Pixel C, Pixel, Pixel XL, Pixel 2, and Pixel 2 XL, reports The Verge.

along with Android 6.0.
Just the camera module is the circular fingerprint scanner ( similar to the one on Nexus 6P
), which doesn't work really well.
This year, the honor goes to Huawei with their introduction of the Nexus 6P
. At first glance, the device looks gorgeous and has the specs sheet to prove its ferocity in the smartphone market.
