    Android 10 phones may have to hide third-party navigation gestures

    Are you fond of the custom navigation gestures on your Android phone? You might have to go digging for them in the future. The 9to5Google team says it has obtained the latest Google Mobile Services agreement for device makers, and the terms reportedly require that phones ship using either Android 10's new gestures or the old three-button layout. Third-party gestures can stay, but they have to be hidden at least one level below in the Settings app. Vendors not only can't enable their own gestures by default, they can't even be advertised in the setup process or by a notification.

    Microsoft phones are back with the dual-screen Surface Duo

    When Microsoft last built its own phones, we got the underwhelming Lumia 950 and 950 XL — a pair of devices that were meant to usher in the age of Windows 10 Mobile, but ultimately couldn't do the job. Now the company is trying to make its mark in mobile once again, but with a device we didn't exactly see coming: a dual-screen Android phone that looks just like a smaller Surface Neo.

    The modular Ara smartphone pushed back to 2016

    Developed by Google's Advanced Technology and Projects group (ATAP), the Ara project is a modular smartphone that is economical, ecological and customizable. The idea is to create a smartphone made up of several pieces, each corresponding to one of the components of the phone: processor, memory, camera, microphone, 3G chip, etc. Each of these elements, starting with the screen, can be replaced in the event of a malfunction or damage, or even just to improve the phone's performance. Beyond the savings this could represent for users, the project is also trying to fight against the planned obsolescence of smartphones.
