We all know that a Galaxy Note-branded smartphone won’t be coming this year. Samsung decided not to release it for whatever reason. Well, we may not be getting a real Galaxy Note handset this year, but a concept designer decided to create an imaginary one, the Galaxy Note 21 Ultra.
You will notice that the phone has no bezels basically. Its display seems to be curved towards the sides, while all of its physical buttons sit on the right. A display camera hole is also not included here, this phone is imagined to have an under-display camera.
There are five cameras on its back
There are five cameras included on the back, and next to them you’ll notice a secondary display. That display is not large, of course, but it’s there. What seems odd when it comes to this design is the back side.
Based on the provided image, it actually seems like the bottom part of the phone’s back is protruding more than the top. That’s kind of odd, as the phone’s rear cameras are usually protruding.
This is a concept design after all, so something like this is possible, as it’s all up to the imagination. Bringing this to life is another thing entirely. Perhaps the designer envisioned a large battery here or something of the sort.
Samsung is expected to release several high-end devices soon
Samsung may bring back the Galaxy Note series next year, we’ll have to wait and see. One thing is for sure, this year we’re not getting a ‘Note’ phone. Samsung will release several phones in its place, though, the Galaxy Z Fold 3, Z Flip 3, and S21 FE. None of them are a direct replacement, though.
This update brings the payment and ads to the HMS version of the app which can be downloaded on Huawei App Gallery. We need a time to see how all works for them. Since user count is pretty low from them, I cannot assist much at the moment.
On the both sides (GMS and HMS) there are minor code improvements, including translations and app code in general.

One of the greatest novelties has been leaked: the ability to execute Android apps that use a built-in emulator.
As collected by Medium MSPower UserMicrosoft may work on a feature to emulate full Android apps using a native emulator within Windows 11. We won’t need software External like Android Emulators are built into the Google SDK, but we can do everything in the same system.
It is that an engineer working at Microsoft, Hideyuki Nagase, posted a new update in the Linux subsystem for Windows code, and among the changes Nagase made Up to two references to the Android Emulator.
Android Emulation on Windows
Mentioned for Android Emulator.
These two notes are as follows: “Fix Android Emulator window can’t move when there is no window” and “Fix Android Emulator window not moving and crashing when minimized”. Clear references to an emulator that may be accessing the system soon.
The idea, quite speculative, is that this simulation in the Windows subsystem for Linux was the basis for Bring Android apps to Windows. We couldn’t download it like any other program, of course; They must be downloaded from the Microsoft Store as a file a program Normal. Once downloaded, the Windows 11 emulator will launch it.
This isn’t the first time we’ve heard of this; At the end of 2020, rumors indicated that Microsoft was already working on it A project called “Latte Project”; The only requirement for developers is to have to change these packages apps to MSIX, the format that Microsoft uses in its Store. In addition to the need to adapt the operation of the application to the desktop system of course.
But there are many problems. Due to Google’s dominance of Android, the vast majority of apps Android users need Google Play services to provide specific services, which will limit many of these services apps. Moreover, no apps From Google, not even from the Play Store. And last but not least, the developers They will have to publish a specific version of Windows, Add more workload.
At Google IO 2021 the tech giant announced Android 12, and it's touting a refreshed UI and much more. You won't be able to actually download the finished Android 12 update straight away, though, as the final release will probably come towards the end of the year.
Some users can download the Android 12 beta though, including anyone with a Pixel 3 or newer, plus owners of the Xiaomi Mi 11, OnePlus 9 and more. You'll find a full list below, while for instructions head to our how to get the Android 12 beta on your phone guide.
As for the finished version, expect the Google Pixel 6 to come with Android 12 on it in September or October.
That will probably be the first device to ship with the update, and while Android 12 will probably come to other Pixel phones quickly, if you've got another Android phone you'll likely have to wait a bit longer, as each company has to tailor Android 12 to their phone before it runs.
Android 12 is the 2021 update for Google's Android operating system, building on 2020's Android 11, which some phones still don't have. But this is more than just an iterative update - Google describes it as the biggest design change in Android's history.
We've listed all the official Android 12 features that have been showcased at Google IO, and we'll update this article as soon as we learn more – and continue updating it as Android 12 rolls out to phones.
Android 12 release date
Android 12 was announced at Google IO 2021, and is out in beta for select devices now, including phones from Oppo, Nokia, OnePlus, Xiaomi, ZTE, Asus, TCL and iQOO - as well of course as plenty of Pixels. You can find the full list in the section below.
The final finished version of Android 12 will likely land in September or October based on past releases of the OS, though most likely only on a small number of handsets to begin with, such as the Google Pixel 5 and Google Pixel 4a, along with the upcoming Google Pixel 6, assuming such a phone launches.
It will be up to device manufacturers to bring Android 12 to your phone, and that often takes months to do, so don’t be surprised if your specific handset doesn’t get Android 12 until 2022.
Adding to this, Android 12 will also ask you for permission from an app to use a feature of the phone. You can select to allow it while running the app, only once, or not at all.
You can also opt to only provide an approximate location to some apps, such as weather apps which don't need to know exactly where you are.
And with features like Live Caption, Now Playing and Smart Reply, all of the audio and language processing happens on your device, so the data isn't sent elsewhere.
There's also locked folders, available across apps, which allow you to lock a specific folder with a fingerprint.
And there's the ability to unlock a Chromebook using your phone. Similar to the Apple Watch unlock feature for an Apple Mac, it will be a matter of having your Android 12 smartphone near to a Chromebook, and it will bring you to the home screen.
Finally, when using an app such as the camera, there will be a subtle UI hint that certain features of the camera are being used, similar to how it shows in Apple's iOS 14.
