Google Assisstant finally works on Pixel C tablets

  Google Assisstant finally works on Pixel C tablets Google Assistant has been available on Pixel phones from the get-go and has spread to virtually every device that's even vaguely capable of handling it, but there has been a glaring exception: the Pixel C. Google confirmed to Engadget that the deployment started today.

However, that might not be the only iPhone X-like feature in the finished release. The 9to5Google team has noticed that a Google developer blog post briefly included an Android P screenshot with a very different set of navigation buttons. Instead of the usual three buttons (back, home and multitasking) that have been present for years, the OS includes just a back button and an iPhone X-style strip.

The image doesn't include hints as to functionality, but 9to5Google had previously heard through a source that Google was testing a nav bar where an upward swipe would trigger multitasking, similar to the iPhone X. The back button would also disappear whenever it's not in use, such as when you're visiting the home screen.

The iPhone could have three rear cameras by 2019

  The iPhone could have three rear cameras by 2019 The rumor is, it will come out in 2019.Apple is reportedly working on an iPhone with three rear cameras for 2019, according to Taiwanese publication Economic Daily News (via MacRumors). Citing industry sources, the report claims that the next iPhone will include a trio of 12-megapixel rear lenses.

We wouldn't bet money on this feature surviving in later releases. Google experiments with features that might be cut or modified by the time a new Android version reaches your hands. It's entirely plausible, however, that Google would show this off between its I/O conference in May and the eventual launch later in 2018. Tall-screened phones are becoming commonplace, and Google might want a clutter-free interface to match. An introduction at I/O would give app developers time to adapt to the change.
