BlackBerry wants to sell you a candybar phone in 2017. This is the bottom-line with the freshly-minted KEYone - which I will call the KeyOne from here on for sanity's sake - and if it's a proposition you're not interested in, there's nothing here that will change your mind. The one I'm using here in Barcelona, by the way, is the finalized version of the phone, running Android 7.1.1 (preproduction software) and basically ready for retail.

BlackBerry has forged a partnership with TCL to push its Android hardware forward. We've seen a few phones come out of this association so far, but they've been recycled Alcatel designs. The KEYone is all new and all BlackBerry. This phone was pre-announced as the Mercury, but now it's official and coming to the US and Canada in "early Q2" and elsewhere shortly thereafter.

Here are the specs for BlackBerry's latest smartphone.

The Sony Xperia XZ was announced at IFA last year, and later released in the United States in October. As you might expect from a phone initially costing $699, it's powered by a Snapdragon 820 CPU with 3GB of RAM. Now Xperia Blog has posted the first image of the upcoming XZ Premium, and it's very shiny.

The only notable visual change between the XZ and XZ Premium is a new mirror Chrome finish.

If you're using the Nexus 6P and enrolled in the beta program, you should be checking your phone for a new update. The 7.1.2 Beta is rolling out now, bringing the larger 2015 Nexus in line with the other Google devices. Those of us who felt snubbed last month when our phone was left out should feel better now.

The factory image doesn't appear to be live on the site yet, but you can keep checking over the next few days if you're interested in going that route.

Verizon phones, especially exclusives like those sold under the DROID brand, don't have a very good reputation for quick updates. The most notable offender of this, the DROID Turbo, took until December of 2016 just to get an official Android 6.0 Marshmallow update. However, the Turbo 2's Nougat update is here, and thankfully, it didn't take nearly as long.

  

Hmm... what fruit emoji shall I send to Bob?

The DROID Turbo 2 launched with a nearly stock version of Android and the Android 7.0 Nougat update keeps it that way.

Samsung is rolling out its payment platform in a new market today: Malaysia. If you've got a card with CIMB, Citibank, Maybank, or Standard Chartered, you may very well be able to add it today. It's not a for sure thing, though. As usual, there are some limitations.

Credit cards from all of the above banks are supported out of the gate. However, only Maybank supports debit and prepaid cards at this time.

Several more carriers have joined since then, including Rogers in Canada and Telanor in Europe and Asia. In a blog post from Google, the company announced that Orange, Deutsche Telekom, and Globe will be rolling out Jibe RCS to their customers.

RCS is a bit complicated, so allow me to explain it before I go on.

For all of you Galaxy S7 and S7 edge users out there (on Nougat), Samsung has officially released the Secure Folder feature that we saw on the Note 7 for your devices. You can download it from the Galaxy Apps store and get to protecting all of your sensitive files. You can shove documents, images, and even apps in there to keep them safe.

If anyone doesn't know, Secure Folder works by sandboxing your stuff separate from everything else on the phone.
