Famous YouTuber, Jerry Rig Everything, is back with yet another durability test. This time, Google’s new Pixel 2 smartphone is given the treatment of scratch, burn and bend examinations. See how the results stack up against the competition right here.
We first heard about the possibility of a Wear OS smartwatch made by Samsung a few months ago. Shortly after we passed along the report, the rumor was shut down by tipsters. However, the once rumor has come back into full circle after a trusted leaker reported that the watch is real and could launch later this year after all.
Google’s Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL are two of the most anticipated smartphones of the year. While we’ve seen a few leaks and heard many rumors, the first renders are giving us a better look at the two devices. The pair of high-end phones is expected to launch in October at a dedicated Made By Google hardware event with a release following soon after in November.
We’ve been hearing about the possibility of an LG smartwatch for a few months now. However, we are yet to see any images or leaked photos of the watch. LG might be keeping it a secret, but nobody can hide from the FCC. A few days ago, a mysterious LG watch made its way to the FCC, leaking some information with its certification documents.
Prior to today, we passed along just one report on the possibility of upcoming Pixel 3 smartphones. Now we have alleged images said to be of screen protectors designed for two upcoming Pixel 3 devices. Like last year, Google could release both a smaller and larger variant of its Pixel phone, and thanks to our first leak, we have an idea of what to expect as far as front panel design goes.
Google’s Pixel Buds have not impressed many since their arrival last fall. To ignite some demand for the Google Assistant ear buds, the accessory is being sold at a $30 discount. This brings the subtotal to $129 from $159, which is the lowest price we’ve seen yet.
Google’s Pixel Buds have been in need of some improvements. The pair released last year and has received little treatment despite unanimous unfavorable reviews. Google is somewhat aware and now rolling out some upgrades that will add to the audio experience. Here’s what to expect.
Qualcomm Senior Director of Wearables spoke with tech blog Wearable, confirming a new Snapdragon processor for smartwatches.
