Nexus fans, do not lose hope. While the future of a Nexus smartphone is still shrouded in uncertainty thanks to the rumors about the Android Silver program, there might still be one more Nexus device in queue. A new leak has sprung up pointing to an 8.9-inch Nexus tablet that will be made by new hands and called the HTC Volantis.
Recently, an LG executive commented on the state of their involvement with the Nexus program. Speaking to Dutch media, LG’s Director of Communications Ken Hong noted they weren’t involved with the next Nexus device “yet”. He went on to note that LG typically has something on the table and in the works by now, as they have with the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5.
You know that something is near completion when certain sources "accidentally" publish something meant for a later date. That could very well be the case for Google Play Store in Germany, which, for a very brief period, put up a page that revealed the LG G Watch's presence. Though to be honest, it really doesn't say much about it at all.
The first LG press renders have been spotted, bringing us the brushed appearance we’ve been seeing in leaked images. The device will follow the iPhone 5S, offering up a gold, silver, and black option. If the pics are the real deal, and actual press renders, LG has also revamped their rear button array.
Speculation, rumor, innuendo — the days and weeks leading up to Google I/O have it all. The long-anticipated, heavily rumored Nexus 8 is once again building steam, as are changes for Google TV (or maybe Android TV). It’s easy to dismiss these as simple rumors, but are they? Maybe this time, Google let info slip a little early.
Today right on top of Google’s first Android Wear push, LG has revealed that they’ll be releasing an LG G Watch. This device will make use of Google’s Android Wear software, based in Android with a number of Google-specific abilities. This includes working with Google Now and the "OK Google" keyword right out of the box.
Philips has unveiled a new computer monitor called the 239C4QHWAB Miracast monitor. This display is able to stream content from your Android device in HD to the monitor with no other hardware needed. That means you can stream content from your tablet or smartphone to the monitor without needing a Chromecast or similar device.
During Mobile World Congress 2014 last month, Android boss Sundar Pichai said we'd not be seeing the next Nexus smartphone until the second half of this year, which surprised no one, and now according to word that has surfaced, LG will be making the handset -- as well as a Nexus smartwatch.
