The new Oppo R7s is now on sale in Europe, and while we're waiting on our review unit to land, we bring news of the exciting sounding "Project Spectrum" from the Chinese manufacturer. Having been already announced for the Find 7 and Find 7a, one Android Central reader posed the question in the comments as to whether it would find its way to the R7s.

And Oppo responded with good news. It currently plans to offer the software for the R7s in early 2016. There isn't a solid date beyond that at this time.

Motorola begins Marshmallow soak test for Moto X Pure Edition in U.S.

29

It looks like Moto X Pure Edition owners in the U.S. are one step closer to securing a taste of Android 6.0 Marshmallow. Motorola's David Schuster took to Google+ to announce that the company has begun a soak test for the third-gen Moto X in the U.S., noting that a full launch could begin in as little as a week.

I'm pleased to announce that today we are starting the soak test period of Android 6.0 Marshmallow upgrade for the 2015 Moto X Pure Edition (3rd Gen) in the US. We will monitor the soak for next week and with good results, proceed to full launch.

In early November, Motorola began pushing Marshmallow out to the Moto X Style in India and Brazil, so the timing for the U.S. soak test isn't all that surprising. Hopefully things go swimmingly, and we'll see a full deployment before too long.

Quick Comparison: BlackBerry Priv versus Nexus 6P

80

There is no shortage of high-end Android phones in 2015. The BlackBerry Priv and the Nexus 6P are two of them, and they also happen to be the two phones I've been using for a little while. We're going to compare them, and hopefully help you decide which would be better for you.

These two look wildly different, and have completely different ways to deliver the same base experience to us users. They are both also pretty darn awesome. When you put them side-by-side, it can be a tough choice.
