Install If You Want It Right Now

The Nexus 5X's Android 8.1 update is widely available, but the update isn't rolling out Over-the-Air (OTA) just yet. 

We expect the update to roll out to Nexus 5X models over the course of December, but there's always a chance it gets delayed for your specific model. 

If you don't want to wait for Google and your carrier to deploy the Android 8.1 to your device, you don't have to. You can manually install Android 8.1 in a few minutes from the comfort of your home or office. 

If you can't wait to fix your Android 8.0 problems or if you want the other changes (enhancements, patches, etc) on board your Nexus 5X right this minute, you'll want to skip the OTA and manually install Android 8.1 on your phone. 

We recently together a guide that will take you through the Android 8.1 manual installation process. The process will take a few minutes, but it's fairly straightforward. 

If any of the instructions in our guide feel complicated, you're better off waiting for Android 8.1 to arrive via your device's Settings.

Again, we expect the update to roll out for most, if not all Nexus 5X models, in December.

5 Reasons to Wait for the Galaxy S21 & 5 Reasons Not To

Wait for a Smaller or Non-Existent Punch Hole

Wait for a Smaller or Non-Existent Punch Hole

The Galaxy S20 series features a punch-hole on the display. The Galaxy S21 may not. 

The vice president of Samsung’s R&D group, Yang Byung-duk, says the company plans to do away with the punch-hole, but that the move will take a few years. 

Before this happens, the company plans to reduce the size of the punch-hole on upcoming devices so that it's barely visible. 

A report from MyDrivers, citing South Korean sources, claims Samsung's working to release a "perfect full screen" experience where the front-facing camera is hidden until it's needed.

The Galaxy S20 series doesn't have an under the display camera, but the technology could make its debut on an upcoming phone like the Galaxy S21. 

According to leaker Ice Universe, Samsung is thinking about using under-the-screen camera technology on the Galaxy S21.

He claims the company is currently "evaluating the feasibility of the technology" which means that while possible, it's far from guaranteed. 

In a more recent tweet, Ice Universe says that while "Samsung Display's under-screen camera solution is much ahead of other solutions, the company has "stricter requirements for under-screen camera effects than other brands."

That said, Analyst Ross Young, who has accurately predicted information in the past, doesn't think the Galaxy S21 will have an under panel display.

If you aren't a huge fan of the company's punch-holes, and you're interested in a "perfect full screen" experience, think about waiting for potential design changes on next year's models.
