In this week’s top stories: Google redesigns media notification controls in latest Android O developer preview, Google outlines when Pixel and Nexus devices will stop receiving telephone & online support, and Amazon seemingly confirms 8GB of RAM for the OnePlus 5. We kick things off this week with a redesign of the media notification controls in latest Android O developer preview.

Also, Google has updated its Android updates page to clarify how long the Nexus and Pixel devices will receive telephone and online support. And the source code from an Amazon page reveals that the OnePlus 5 will likely have 8GB of RAM.
