Google Home does Google Assistant better than anything else, and now you can untether it from the outlet.

Google Home is a wonderful little speaker with Google Assistant, but it’s tied to an outlet, so you can’t carry it around your home as you get your work done without having to unplug, replug, reboot, and re-connect whatever you were listening to. And yeah, you can get Google Assistant everywhere with your phone, but Google Assistant is more robust on Google Home than it is anywhere else, especially when it comes to music and playback controls.

And if this new battery-powered base by Ninety7 works even half as well as it claims, I want one, and I want it now.

LOFT for Google Home is essentially a third-party metal Google Home base, being held in place by magnets like the regular Home bases and charging with the same Google Home power adapter. LOFT is supposed to sport a six-hour battery life while off that original Google Home power adapter, which isn’t mind-blowing, but for a base this small, I’m not sure how much more you could squeeze in there.

As you can see, the LOFT isn’t a massive base, and its design blends quite well with Google Home, with a white base and a metal speaker grill that matches the original three metal Home bases offered by Google. The LOFT for Google Home is supposed to retail for $50, but it’s up for pre-order at $40 with free shipping. If you’re as interested as I am, hit the pre-order link below. Ninety7 has shipped a battery-powered speaker for the Echo Dot before, and is also offering pre-orders for a portable battery for the second-generation Echo Dot.

How many more leaks will we see? This about wraps it up.

The Google hardware leaks are coming hard and fast, and the latest of the group reveals fresh information about the forthcoming Pixel 2 — the smaller sibling to the Pixel 2 XL. According to Droid-Life, the Google Pixel 2 will launch at the same starting price as last year’s Pixel, $649, which will put it well below the purported $849 price of the Pixel 2 XL.

For that money you’ll get the same base 64GB of storage, and the same step up of $100 will bump that to 128GB. According to the report, the Pixel 2 will also offer a third color, “Kinda Blue” (shown above), alongside simpler black and white options. Interestingly the white Pixel 2 is shown to have a white-backed glass portion at the top of the phone, while the latest Pixel 2 XL leaks show a black portion on the white phone. The Kinda Blue color is obviously … less blue than the “Really Blue” Pixel of last year, and shows Google likes to have a chuckle while it names its device colors.

Hardware and design between the two models could be more similar than we first expected.

The rest of the hardware looks like a simple smaller version of the Pixel 2 XL, at least from the back, with the smaller glass portion at the top holding a single camera lens once again. If you’re really paying attention to details you’ll see the flash is situated to the left of the camera rather than the right as on the Pixel 2 XL. At the $649 price we’d expect the Pixel 2 to have a metal body, and these leaks make it look like it should be similar to the original Pixel — which aside from being rather basic shouldn’t be a bad thing in terms of quality or feel.

We’ll see all of this unveiled officially, with some explanation of the specifics, at a Google event on October 4 in San Francisco.

T-Mobile is set to make its unlimited plan a bit more attractive.

Update, September 19: This news is now official, as per T-Mobile’s blog.

“I’m happy to announce that starting tomorrow we’re increasing T-Mobile’s prioritization point from an already-industry-leading 32GB to a whopping 50GB! Meanwhile, Verizon and AT&T sit at a meager 22GB, meaning Un-carrier customers can use more than 2x the data before prioritization kicks in. Now, 50GB of data usage means a T-Mobile customer is basically the top 1% of data users, and to put it in context, you could stream a full 2 hours of Netflix every single day – that’s 30 SD movies – and never even reach that point! You’d still have roughly 8GB to go.”

After introducing free Netflix to all customers on its T-Mobile ONE unlimited family plan, the carrier is set to take another action that is sure to impress its user base while enticing customers from other carriers.

Starting September 20, T-Mobile is set to raise its “fair usage threshold,” also known as its data prioritization limit, to 50GB from 32GB. The company had already raised its threshold from 23GB to 30GB, and then again to 32GB, earlier this year, so T-Mobile’s network can clearly handle to extra load.

While we don’t have all the details just yet, it’s clear that T-Mobile is trying to move as many of its legacy customers over to T-Mobile ONE as quickly as possible. CEO John Legere said in a conference call after the recent Netflix announcement that “T-Mobile is in the business of selling T-Mobile ONE plans,” as opposed to trying to bundle other types of vertically integrated content like AT&T’s DirecTV and Verizon’s Go90.

JerryRigEverything has torn down the LG V30, showing all the internal components.

While it hasn’t been released yet, the LG V30 has already been making waves with reviewers. Alex said in his review of the device that it was a no-BS flagship: everything a user may want without any compromises or gimmicks. As we get closer to the release of the phone, more and more journalists are getting their hands on the device.

JerryRigEverything has done his customary tear down of the V30, and there are more great things about the phone to report. The video is sponsored by LG, so make of that what you will. The video begins with some impressive shots of New York City, recorded on the V30. While the phone is waterproof, it was fairly easy to get into with the proper equipment. There isn’t too much in the way of adhesive, and all the components are held in place with clips.

The video notes the primary camera contains a 10-bit image sensor, meaning it can be used to record HDR video. The LG V30 is one of the few phones that supports HDR content, so it only makes sense to record HDR video. JerryRigEverything notes that the cameras may be the most advanced mobile sensor, but given the sponsored nature of the video, take that with a grain of salt. The USB-C port is held in place with screws, meaning it can be replaced down the road if need be.

One interesting feature is the fact that the earpiece speaker can be used as a microphone if recording audio above 100 decibels, meaning live recordings should sound fantastic. The battery is replaceable, though it is held in place with adhesive. This is still more hassle than the removable battery previous LG phones had, but it’s better than nothing. All the components were able to be plugged back in at the end and the phone turned on just fine. While it’d be tedious and would require the correct tools, users should technically be able to repair the device.

Are you looking forward to the LG V30? Let us know down below!
