Suggested March 2024 Alcatel Announces Multiple Android Oreo, Nougat And Go Edition Devices At Mwc 2023

It’s 2023, but Alcatel has new devices on the market powered by the nearly two-year-old Android Nougat, an operating system that was first released in August 2024. This isn’t the only surprise, though.

At the ongoing MWC 2023, Alcatel has unveiled three phones powered by Android Oreo, one with Android Go and two with Nougat. The company has also announced two tablets powered by Android 8.1 Oreo.

Here’s the rundown:

Alcatel 1 series

The Alcatel 1X and 1C are the first devices in the company’s new 1 series and the 1X also happens to run Android Go. This should give you a hint about the phone’s specs and features.

Alcatel 1X

On the official Alcatel 1X page, the company notes that “specs & color may vary in different countries” because, well, there are multiple variants of the 1X. Some models come with single-SIMs and others have dual SIMs. Even more interesting, some variants of the Alcatel 1X have no fingerprint scanners, but Alcatel has what it calls “Face Key” to take care of that.

As for pricing, the single-SIM variant will be priced at €100 while the dual-SIM variant can be yours at €110. Availability begins in April.

Alcatel 1C

Like the 1X, the Alcatel 1C also sports the new 18:9 design, but it’s bigger in size and rocks a brushed aluminum body. Also, this model runs a full-on version of Android Oreo and is generally more superior to the 1X. Here’re the specs:

Alcatel 3 series

As the names suggest, these three are just variants of the same phone. This also means you get the same design and specs, but their sizes are quite different. The trio has the same chipset and supports facial recognition. Here’re the specs:

Alcatel 3

The Alcatel 3 comes with a 5.5-inch 18:9 display with HD+ resolution and a single-lens camera on the back.

Alcatel 3X

The Alcatel 3X has a bigger 5.7-inch panel with the same specs, but for some reason, it has Android Nougat out of the box.

Alcatel 3V

The Alcatel 3V gets an even bigger 6-inch panel with full HD+ resolution and like the 3X, you also get a dual-lens camera on the back, which the standard Alcatel 3 misses out.

It’s strange that Alcatel chose Android Nougat OS for the 3X, but hopefully, the phone at least gets an Oreo update. As for pricing, the Alcatel 3 will have a price tag of €150, the 3X at €180 while the 3V will set you back €190. Availability begins next month.

Alcatel 5 series

Unlike the other categories, the Alcatel 5 series has only one model, at least for now. It’s the costliest, but this doesn’t mean it has premium specs. The design gets rid of the bottom bezel but leaves a big one at the top in what Alcatel calls a limitless design.

The curved unibody houses an 18:9 display screen with a 5.7-inch panel, but you get a disappointing HD+ resolution and Android Nougat out of the box. On the brighter side, the Alcatel 5 gets a dual selfie camera alongside feature such as USB-C, fingerprint scanner and 4G LTE connectivity, as shown below.

The Alcatel 5 has a price tag of €229.99.

Alcatel 1T Tablets

Alcatel did not stop with the smartphones. There are two tablets for you as well, which, just like the phones, have modest specs and thus affordable price tags. Both the Alcatel 1T 7 and Alcatel 1T 10 are powered by the newest Android 8.1 Oreo, quad-core MediaTek chipsets and 1GB RAM. The main difference between the two slates is their display screens, where the 1T 7 has a 7-inch 1024 x 600 panel while the 1T 10 has a 10-inch 1280 x 800 panel. The pair will be priced at €70 and €100, respectively.

Uninstall Multiple Apps At Once On Android

Did you make a backup of all of your apps you installed on your device before wiping it and now wish to install all those apps at once? Not possible if you are going the traditional way of installing apps on your device. But wait, we do have a developers community around us that keeps developing new and great tools that help users get the best out of their devices and ease their tasks. One of these useful tools is the Mass APK Installer, and as you may have already guessed, it lets you install multiple apps at once on your Android device.

The tool helps the ADB sideload feature that pushes APKs over to the device and issues required commands to install the app.

Installing Multiple Apps at Once on Android

Note: The tool that we are going to be using is only available for Windows, so you need to have a PC running Windows in order to do the following procedure.

1. Download the Mass APK Installer Tool and extract all of its files over to your desktop or any other convenient place.

2. Place all of the APKs you want to install on your device in the “apk” folder that you got after extracting the tool. In the example below, I put two apps in the folder for installation – the Apollo Music Player and the Quick Boot app.

5. Connect your Android device to your PC using the USB cable that came with it. If you see a prompt on your PC saying it is installing the drivers, then let it do so first.

7. When it is done, you should see the apps installed on your device.

And that’s it. All of the APKs you put inside the “apk” folder have now been installed on your device, and you can access them right from your device’s app drawer.

That was about installing mass apps on Android, what about uninstalling them? Well, we have that covered as well for you.

Uninstalling Multiple Apps at Once on Android

In order to mass uninstall apps, you are going to need an app called “Uninstall Master Uninstaller”. It lets you remove multiple apps at once from your Android device.

1. Head over to the Google Play and download and install the Uninstall Master Uninstaller app on your device.

2. Tap on the app icon and it will launch.

3. On the first screen of the app, you will see all of the apps you have installed on your device. Tap on the apps you wish to remove and they will be added to the Uninstall list. When you are done, hit the “Uninstall” button.

4. It will then ask for your confirmation if you really want to remove the apps. Hit the “OK” button.

5. The selected apps will now be removed from your device. It will, however, ask you for your permission for each of the apps you wish to uninstall.

You are all done. The apps you selected above should now be removed from your device.


Installing and uninstalling apps one-by-one consumes a lot of time, and the tools above help ease the task by allowing you to bulk install and uninstall apps on your device. It’s a great relief for all the Android users out there!

Lg Oreo Update: Android 8.0 For Lg V20 Now Rolling Out On At&T

We expected LG to hand the G6 users an Oreo before the end of November 2023, but LG surely surprised us when it opted to roll out a beta version of Android Oreo for the V30 (and V30+) towards the end of last November. LG was good with Android OS upgrades in the last 2-3 years, but now it seems they don’t believe in quicker update release as they once did.

Android 8.0 release date: April 30, 2023 (Korea), May 21 U.S.

It was always going to be simple: if not the V30, then G6 would be the first device from LG to get Android 8.0 update. The update is not yet available in the U.S. and other parts of the world, but it’s now rolling out in Korea, beginning April 30.

Update: Beginning May 21, Verizon has started rolling out Android 8.0 Oreo to the LG G6. It becomes the first U.S. carrier to release the G6 Oreo update, similar to what happened with the V30 Oreo update. AT&T started dishing out the Oreo update on June 6 while those on T-Mobile joined the party on June 29.

Released in December 2023

A few days to the end of last year, LG began rolling out Android Oreo update for the V30 and V30+ in Korea. LG had been beta testing its Android 8.0 update for about a month. The Oreo update arrived as software version V20e and unlike the Verizon version, it was sized 1411.90MB.

Android 8.0 Oreo update for unlocked LG V30 was rolled out in mid-January, coming in as software version US99818F. On March 9, Verizon started rolling out the OS to the V30 while T-Mobile joined the party on May 4, only to halt the update on May 12 due to bugs, but we don’t have an exact date of when it’ll resume. On the other hand, AT&T started rolling out Oreo OTA to the V30 on March 28, 2023, which included March 1st security patches.

Update [July 13, 2023]: After months of waiting, LG V30 Plus users in India can finally dance to the same tune as those in other regions. In addition to Oreo, LG India says the update will turn your V30 Plus into a V30S ThinQ, meaning you are getting all the AI stuff that make the ThinQ variant what it is.

Oct 31, 2023: The G6 was recently found on Geekbench running Oreo. Although that doesn’t really mean a lot, we have a feeling we would hear something official on Oreo from LG really soon.

Even a budget Android device is guaranteed to receive at least one big Android OS update, at least from the major popular OEMs like LG, Motorola, Huawei, Samsung, HTC, etc. So even though the LG Q6 runs on Nougat at the moment, it’s guaranteed to receive Android 8.0 update.

When the LG Q6 Oreo comes out is another tricky question, though. We are sure that LG would have his hands busy with Android 8.0 rollout for G6 and V30 at the beginning, but it would seem fair if it decides to work on 8.0 for G6 and V20, before taking up Q6 and other mid-range devices.

Until an official announcement drops from LG, it’s hard to say when 8.0 for Q6 would be released, but if we are to guess, a March 2023 rollout looks likely.

Update: LG has published the Oreo kernel sources for the device’s Korean variants, an indicator that the OS will begin rolling out soon. Of course, it will take some time before the update starts showing up on LG G5 variants sold outside Korea. [More details].

G5 was among the first few Android devices to receive Nougat last year, which is why we think of G6 to beat other Android devices like Galaxy S8 and HTC U11 for Oreo release. But because LG didn’t give G4 Nougat treatment, it raises doubt on G5 Oreo release.

We, however, think that last year was an exception LG is less likely to repeat. We could see LG begin rollout of Oreo update for LG G5 sometime in Q1 of 2023.

As is the case with LG software updates, the G5 Oreo rollout could begin in Korea first, followed by other regions and carriers around the world.

LG G5 SE/Lite Oreo update

Having upgraded the LG G5 Lite (or LG G5 SE) to Nougat from Marshmallow, there are only slim chances of LG releasing an 8.0 update for the device. The device is a mid-range, which often see only one major Android OS support from OEMs, and that’s how it is.

LG V20

Expected release date: Released on 24 July 2023 in Korea, 31 July in USA (Sprint)

On July 24, 2023, the first Android Oreo update for the LG V20 was spotted online and as expected, it was only happening in Korea. LG V20 handsets with model numbers F800L and F800S were reported to have received Oreo updates in LG’s home country, suggesting that the rest of the globe would indeed join the party in August as reported earlier by Canada’s Fido.

For those in the U.S. and use Sprint as their carrier, the Oreo 8.0 update is also rolling out as of July 31, 2023. On August 23, AT&T started dishing out Oreo updates for the V20.

LG V10

Expected release date: Not eligible

Although a solid device with a cool specs sheet and all, the LG V10 won’t receive Oreo love. The device is already past its software update lifecycle, and it would be cruel to expect LG to update a three-year-old device with a major Android OS update.

Lest the device gets a breath of fresh air via a custom ROM like LineageOS 15.1, which comes off running on Android 8.1 and is already available for a variety of devices. Check our LineageOS 15 device list here.

Read: Motorola Android 8.0 update list

Expected release date: Q3 2023

There are two editions of LG K10, one released in 2024, while other, a more recent one, released in 2023 and thus aptly dubbed LG K10 2023. Well, only one of them would see the sunlight in Oreo. And that’s LG K10 2023, that comes with 2GB RAM, and is identified with model no. M250N and X400.

The original K10 2024 received an update from Lollipop to Marshmallow and that is the end of the road for the device — as one major Android OS update is all they get. The LG K10 2023 comes with Nougat, and thus would have Android 8.0 as its only one major Android update.

When exactly the Oreo update will be rolled out is still a mystery to us, but we hope to see the update coming out in Q3 2023, now that our initial expectations of a Q2 2023 rollout are no more.

Expected release date: Q3 2023

Like the K10 above, only the LG K8 2023 edition stands a chance to receive the Oreo update from LG. There is no confirmation about this yet, but given that these devices get only one Android OS update that involves a change in name of the version, it looks very likely that Oreo would arrive on K8 2023 sooner or later. The LG K8 2023 is known by its model no. M200N, X240, and US215 (US Cellular).

However, the K8 handset that was released in 2024 by LG won’t receive the Android 8.0 Oreo update. That’s sure.


Expected release date: Q3 2023

With 4GB RAM and a solid Snapdragon 820 processor under the hood, the Q8 is more than capable of running the latest update of Android OS, the 8.0. Launched with Android 7.0, the device should see the Oreo update coming down as an OTA in the year 2023.

When exactly is a matter of pure guess, but we would go by Q3 2023.

LG Stylus 3

Expected release date: Q3 2023

The LG Stylus 3 runs on Nougat right now, and it’s powered by 3GB RAM and MT6750 processor, all of which makes it an ideal candidate for Oreo OS. Given that the Stylus 3 is a budget range handset, it naturally won’t receive the Android 8.0 update as fast the premium flagships do, which is why a Q3 2023 release looks very likely for the device.

On the flipside, we’ve grown to know the issues that follow MediaTek-powered smartphones with respect to software updates, but still, we do expect the Stylus 3 to jump aboard the Oreo ship at some point in future.

Read: Android Oreo device list (expected)

These devices from LG won’t receive an update to Oreo. Here’s a list of ineligible LG devices as regards Oreo update:

LG Harmony

LG K10

LG K20 plus


LG K3 (2024)


LG K4 (2024)



LG K7 (2024)


LG Stylo 2

LG Stylus 2

LG Stylus 2 Plus


LG X cam

LG X mach

LG X max

LG X power

LG X power2

LG X screen

LG X Skin

LG X style

LG X venture


Do let us know what you think about LG’s Android Oreo plans?

Given LG’s past history on releasing latest Android OS update, we can assume safely that LG would be quick to roll out Oreo OTA for G6, V30, and V20, but would it able to follow the Android 8.0 update for budget range of devices too, like Q6, Q8, K8/K10 2023, Stylus 3, etc?

How To Sign Into Whatsapp On Multiple Devices

WhatsApp, the globally popular messaging application, has become an integral part of our daily communication. Whether you’re chatting with friends, sharing photos with family, or conducting business meetings, WhatsApp has you covered. However, you might wonder if you can use your WhatsApp account across multiple devices.

How to Sign Into WhatsApp on Multiple Devices

In the past, it was only possible to use WhatsApp on one device at a time. However, WhatsApp recently added a new feature that allows users to link their account to up to four devices. This means that you can now use WhatsApp on your phone, computer, and tablet all at the same time.

Here are the steps on how to sign into WhatsApp on multiple devices:

Open WhatsApp on your primary device.

Tap the three dots icon in the top right corner.

Select Linked devices.

From the secondary device, download and open WhatsApp.

Enter the verification code on the secondary device.

Enter your phone number and password if prompted.

Once you have completed these steps, your WhatsApp account will be linked to all of the devices that you scanned the QR code on. You will be able to send and receive messages, make calls, and use all of the other features of WhatsApp on all of your linked devices.

There are a few things to be aware of when trying to sign into WhatsApp on multiple devices. For one, you can only link devices that are using the same operating system as your primary device. For example, if your primary device is an Android phone, you can only link Android tablets and Android computers. Another limitation is that you are only able to link up to four devices to your WhatsApp account. Lastly, if you log out of WhatsApp on one device, you will be logged out of all linked devices.

Benefits of Being Able To Sign Into WhatsApp on Multiple Devices

Linking your WhatsApp account to multiple devices is a great way to stay connected with your friends and family. It is also a great way to use WhatsApp on devices that do not have a SIM card, such as tablets and computers.

Some other reasons why you might want to be able to sign into WhatsApp on multiple devices is to be able to access WhatsApp messages from anywhere. So you can finally leave your phone at home and still participate in conversations on your computer or another device. Or maybe you are working on a project with someone, you can use WhatsApp on your computer to chat with them in real-time.

It might come as a surprise that this feature was not previously available when using WhatsApp. However, the primary reason for this is due to security and privacy concerns, which might prompt you to wonder whether you will still be able to see your message history when using WhatsApp on a secondary device.

Thankfully, you can put those worries to rest as WhatsApp provides the following:

“Right after you link a device, your primary phone sends an end-to-end encrypted copy of your most recent message history to your newly linked device, where it’s stored locally. Not all messages are synced to WhatsApp Web or Desktop. To see or search your full message history, check your phone.”

Nevertheless, considering how popular WhatsApp is across the globe, we are sure that there are going to be many users who are happy to finally be able to use their messaging service of choice across multiple devices.

Galaxy A7 Firmware Download: Android 9 Pie Available For 2023 Edition

Samsung Galaxy A7 Firmware

Android 9 Pie firmware

Well, expect the Android 9 Pie firmware to be available for the eligible devices sometime in Q2 2023. Which means you might see Android Pie firmware for the Galaxy A7 2023 — the one with the triple camera, yes! — in Q2 2023.

BTW, only the Galaxy A7 2023 is eligible for Android Pie update as all the other older editions of the Galaxy A series have reached the end of major Android OS upgrade support.

Android 8.0 Oreo firmware

Update [June 18, 2023]: The Android 8.0 update is available for the 2023 release of the Galaxy A7, model no. SM-A720. While earlier models released in 2024 (SM-A700) and 2024 (SM-A710) are not expected t received the Oreo OTA update.

Android 8.1 update is not expected for any of the Galaxy A7 handsets.

How to download the correct firmware file

This is an important part!

Be sure to check and find the correct model no. of your Galaxy A7. Then, based on your device’s model no., look for the appropriate firmware build from above.

Now that you know the model no., download the latest firmware from above for that model no. exactly.

Next, install the firmware on your Galaxy A7 by following the guide linked right below.

How to install a firmware

First, read our disclaimer, then take backup and then follow the guide below to install the firmware.

Disclaimer: Installing an official firmware through Odin doesn’t void your device’s warranty, but it remains an unofficial process and thus you need to be cautious of it. In any case, you only are responsible for your device. We won’t be liable if any damage occurs to your device and/or its components.

Backup, backup, backup! Create an appropriate backup of contacts, pictures, videos, songs and other important files stored on your device before proceeding with the steps below, so that in case something goes wrong you’ll have a backup of all your important files. Sometimes, firmware installation may delete everything on your device! Like, when you change the CSC of your device, knowingly or not.

Step-by-step Firmware Installation Guide

Let’s see how to install the firmware on your Galaxy A7. Make sure you have more than 30% battery on your device.

Step 1. Make sure you have downloaded the correct firmware file on your PC. See above for how to download correct firmware file for your Galaxy A7 and download links.

Step 3. Also, download Odin PC software (latest version).

Step 5. Extract the Odin file. You should get the Odin exe file (other files could be hidden, hence not visible).

Step 6. Disconnect your Galaxy A7 from PC if it is connected.

Step 7. Boot into download mode:

Power off your device. Wait for 6-7 seconds after screen goes off.

Press and hold the three buttons Volume down + Home + Power together until you see the Warning screen.

Press Volume Up to continue to download mode.

Step 9. Connect your device now using the USB cable. Odin should recognize your device. It’s a must. When it recognizes, you will see Added!! message appearing in the Log box in the bottom left, and the first box under ID:COM will also show a no. and turn its background blue. Look at the pic below.

You cannot proceed until you get the Added!! message, which confirms that Odin has recognized your device.

If you don’t get Added!! message, you need to install/re-install drivers again, and use the original cable that came with the device. Mostly, drivers are the problem (look at step 2 above).

You can try different USB ports on your PC too.

Load the firmware files(s) on your device. This depends on how many files you got in step 4 above upon extracting the firmware .zip file.

Case 1: If you got a single .tar/.tar.md5 file, then load this into AP tab of your Odin software. Then go to next step.

Case 2: If you got more than one .tar/.tar.md5 file, then you must be having files starting with AP, CSC, Home_CSC, BL, CP, etc. stuff. In this case, choose the files as follows. Select the firmware files as follows.

About CSC file: Using the HOME_CSC file won’t reset your device, and data on the phone shouldn’t be deleted. However, when we select regular CSC file, and it results in CSC on the device being different than that in CSC file, your phone will be formatted automatically. You can even choose to ignore loading the CSC file, that may do alright too. But if it doesn’t work out, repeat the whole process and select CSC file this time around.

Info: When you load files, Odin checks the md5 of firmware file, which takes time. So, simply wait until that’s done and the firmware file is loaded. Don’t worry if Odin gets unresponsive for a while, it’s normal. Binary size will also show up in Odin.

Go back to Log tab now, as it will show the progress of firmware installation when you hit the start button in next step.

Wait till installation is finished, after which your device will reboot automatically. You’ll get PASS message as shown below upon successful installation from Odin.

Some errors you may run into, and with respective solution.

If Odin gets stuck at setup connection, then you need to do this all again. Disconnect your device, close Odin, boot device into download mode again, open Odin, and then select the file and flash it again as said above.

If you get FAIL in the top left box, then also you need to flash the file again as stated just above.

That’s it. Let the device restart automatically.

Firmware Benefits

You can use the firmware for a variety of purposes, which includes:

Fix your Galaxy A7 if it’s giving you force closes errors and restarts randomly.

Unbrick your Galaxy A7 if it’s bootlooping and stuck at logo when restarting.

Go Back to Stock on your Galaxy A7 — helps when looking to sell the device, or fix installing OTA updates if broken.

Restore Galaxy A7 to factory state.

Upgrade your Galaxy A7 to newer Android version.

Downgrade your Galaxy A7 to lower build no. at same Android version.

Unroot your Galaxy A7.

Remove custom recovery like TWRP and CWM, if installed, on your Galaxy A7.

Search Inside Multiple Text Files At Once

Ever had to find some text inside a bunch of different text files? If you’re in IT, this issue can come up quite often. Maybe you are looking for a particular phrase in log files or maybe you are a programmer and need to find some code that is inside many different code files.

Table of Contents

If you don’t want to install any third-party software and you are comfortable with the command line, then you should check out the built-in search commands section below. I’m assuming most people are more comfortable with GUI interfaces, so that’s why I mention the programs first.

Third-Party Search Programs

So when someone writes a program for searching on Windows, inevitably, it has the word grep in it. That’s pretty much the case with all the programs listed below.


grepWin is probably the most popular out of the tools mentioned here. It supports regular expressions and allows you to find and replace text also. They also have a tutorial on their website to help with regular expressions, though you can Google for many more.


AstroGrep is also another really good search program. Not only does it get updated quite often, it also shows you where in the file the text was found. grepWin also has that option if you choose the Content radio button, but I think it’s implemented better in AstroGrep.

AstroGrep can also search Word files, which is a handy feature. You can also save or print out all of the results for future reference. I also find their interface to be more modern and pleasing to the eye.


BareGrep is a fairly simple search program that supports regular expressions and all the basic search functions. It’s pretty fast overall and shows you matches in a tabular format. The free version has a splash screen that you can’t disable. The pro version costs $25 and seems to just disable the splash screen, otherwise the features are the same.


If you are looking for the ultimate search program, then look for further than PowerGREP. This program has some serious features and a serious price tag to go along with it. It’s a whopping $159! It’s pretty much got all the features mentioned above, plus some more, and all packaged nicely into a pretty little interface.

Built-in Windows Commands

If you only need to perform a quick search and don’t want to install a full-fledged program, you can use the built-in command line tools in Windows. One runs in the normal command prompt and the other uses PowerShell. Both are quite powerful and can find pretty much anything you are looking for.

The first command is findstr. You can read the reference document here to learn how to use findstr. You can also type findstr /? at the command prompt and it’ll show you the usage. As you can see, there are quite a few options. Obviously, this is a lot more complicated than using one of the programs above.

The second option is the Select-String command in Windows PowerShell. Again, there is a pretty big learning curve with these commands if you haven’t already used them. Microsoft has a good tutorial on how to use Select-String, so make sure to read that.
