Android TV has been pretty quiet over the past few months, but that all changed at Google I/O 2016 when Google not only announced big updates to the OS, but also a new device. The new Xiaomi Mi Box, previously released in China with its own OS, was announced to be coming to the United States with Android TV on board. A release window wasn’t provided at the announcement, but thanks to the FCC we now know it’s not too far off.
Corning, the company behind the popular Gorilla Glass brand, today announced the next iteration of its cover glass for mobile displays, a likely candidate for future Android devices.

That feature, however, is apparently on its way.
