However, I, and many others, are getting pretty frustrated with how the company is handling the rollout of Android 10 to the OnePlus 7 and OnePlus 7 Pro. Three weeks ago today, on September 21, the company announced on its official forums that a stable rollout of Android 10 was starting for the OnePlus 7 series. This didn't make OnePlus the first company to push a stable build of the latest version of Android to a handset, but proved it is still one of the fastest companies in the industry in that metric.
But when you look at everything as a whole, it's clear what guided the direction of the Note this generation. With the Note 9, Samsung slung huge banner ads reading 4,000mAh and 1TB. These were the major selling points for the phone. With the 10 series, it's not about that at all. The Note 10 Plus is still better than ever, because if it wasn't Samsung's best Note ever, it wouldn't sell any units. But if you look at the key marketing points of the Note 10 series, it is all about design.
The OnePlus 7 Pro is the biggest, fastest, and most expensive device the company has ever offered. Its edge-to-edge display trades the notch for a mechanical pop-up selfie camera, and the new high-resolution 90Hz display looks and feels amazing. In adding these features, however, the 7 Pro trades a key benefit for which the company has traditionally been known: battery life.
We're still waiting for an official announcement from NVIDIA, but the NVIDIA Shield TV Pro is up for pre-order from Amazon for $200 with an estimated ship date of October 28th. Like previous versions, the new model supports 4K HDR video playback and it can run some Shield-exclusive video games. There's also support for streaming games over the internet using NVIDIA's GeForce Now service. What's new is a new Tegra X1+ processor that NVIDIA says brings 25-percent faster performance, a new remote control with a weird triangular-shaped design and far more buttons than its predecessor and support for Bluetooth 5.0.
