It was only a few hours ago that Google took the wraps off its brand new Nexus 6P. During the event, the search engine giant announced that the device will be available to purchase in Aluminium, Graphite and Frost. However, it’s currently showing up on the Japanese division of the Play Store anodized in gold.

Unfortunately, it appears that this is a Special Edition of the Nexus 6P that won’t be making its way to other markets any time soon. There’s also a chance that it may not launch at all seeing as it’s not actually available to order just yet. Potential customers can only register their interest.

BaconReader gets Material Design overhaul with version 5.0 update

bacon readerBaconReader is one of the best available Reddit apps for Android, despite sporting a pretty dated interface. That changes today with a new update to version 5.0, bringing the app up to spec with a complete Material Design makeover.

The wide feature set on BaconReader hasn’t changed, although there are a few new tricks thanks to the latest design. Navigating the interface is a bit easier, and there are three themes to suit your preference, including a dark theme for night owls. There’s also a new view inspired by Google’s design cards, and the tablet view of the app is optimized for the extra screen space.

Like always, BaconReader is ad-supported with an option to drop two bucks on an ad-free experience.
