Huawei has officially unveiled its first Android Wear device, the Huawei Watch. After most of its specifications have been leaked earlier, more details of the device have been announced. Among the things that are now confirmed is a 1.4-inch 400 x 400 AMOLED display and a “scratch-proof” sapphire crystal lens.
The next generation of Huawei TalkBand smartband, the TalkBand B2, has been revealed at MWC 2015. It looks nothing like its colourful predecessor, instead choosing a more blockish design and duller colours. All that means it looks more like a regular watch that people can wear all the time.
Huawei has revealed the TalkBand N1, a set of wireless earphones that also function as a media player and fitness tracker. The wireless capabilities allow it to travel with the user without the need for a smartphone, although it does have limitations when not paired with a proper device.
Acer is shoring up its Liquid Z series with another Android-powered two entry level smartphones. Both the Liquid Z220 and Z520 are not particularly exciting in terms of specifications, but are instead intended to provide a well-rounded mobile experience. Although, they do provide some interesting modes for people who just want a phone.
With smartwatches taking the market by storm, it looks like traditional watch makers have no choice but to hop onto the bandwagon too. Swatch just announced its first smartwatch called the Swatch Touch Zero One, that is “a new generation of Swatch”, and strangely enough, is made for Beach Volleyball players.
Windows Phone fans will be getting a wider range of manufacturers to choose from when Acer’s new Liquid M220 appears in the market. That being said, this looks like yet another entry level Windows Phone powered device in a market that is positively swimming with low-end Lumia’s. It could be Acer testing the waters for a return to the operating system, and it definitely is good news for Microsoft.
Huawei, out of all manufacturers, could have designed the best-looking Android Wear device yet. Dubbed the Huawei Watch, the new device has been leaked in a series of videos ahead of its likely official unveiling at MWC 2015 later today. It has also been spotted in an advertisement at Barcelona’s El Prat airport.
Photos of BlackBerry’s latest device has surfaced online. The company is adding a mid-range smartphone in its line-up of all-touch devices and that is rumoured to be named the BlackBerry Leap. This appears to be a the device that was originally codenamed Rio that appeared a few months ago.
Porn company, Pornhub is making a wearable that is able to charge tech devices. How? By shaking it. It was only a matter of time before someone thought of creating the Wankband. A device that stores kinetic energy from masturbation and then using that energy to power or recharge tech devices. Genius or Preposterous?
The next Nexus smartphone from Google might just be built by a Chinese manufacturer. All Nexus smartphones to date have always been developed by established brands outside of China, such as LG, Motorola, and of course, Samsung. If the successor to the Google Nexus 6 will be coming from a Chinese smartphone manufacturer, it could indicate a shift in Google’s game plan with its Nexus lineup.
