Report: Google is Working on Two Android Wear Watches It Can Call Its Own

Because no one else seems interested in building them anymore, Google is apparently going to build two of their own Android Wear smartwatches, one with LTE and GPS, and another without. The report arrives via Android Police, who describes each watch at length, but doesn’t have mock-ups or images of either, leaving us the opportunity to open our creative minds to try and picture them. They sound like…round smartwatches made by Google. Shall we talk about them? OK.  (more…)

Google May be Redesigning Android’s Nav Bar With Ugly Home Button, Introduce Live Nexus Support Via App

Not surprisingly, Android news is pretty slow these days, as it always is in the lead-up to a new version of the OS. Google more than likely doesn’t want to out anything too fun at the moment, since we are only two months or so from stable Android N going public and new Nexus devices running it arriving alongside it. To fill the time, we are left entertaining rumors of minute changes that may or may not be on the horizon, like Google tweaking the navigation bar appearance and creating a live support app for Nexus users. Yep, that’s where we are at the moment.  (more…)

Rumor: Moto X (3rd Gen) to Feature 3600mAh Battery, 21MP Camera, MicroSD Slot

While the new Moto G has leaked more times over the last few weeks than we can count, the Moto X (3rd gen) has done a pretty good job of remaining mostly out of sight. Tough to tell if that’s because Motorola is only going to give us a new Moto G and save the Moto X for later this summer or if there are fewer in the wild to be leaked. Either way, you know we are excited to see this year’s flagship from Motorola, since the last two from the Lenovo-owned company have topped our charts the last two years.

If today’s rumor out of HelloMotoHK – the group who stays as close as anyone to the Motorola beat – is true, you should be excited too.  (more…)
