Google is going nuts with new inventions in tonight’s news. Meanwhile, Huawei is announcing an ultra affordable smartphone.
Google X lab is where all the innovative projects from the Search Giants come from. They have worked with projects like the self-driving car, but this time they are trying to invade the market with an innovative TV.
According to the latest rumors, Google is working on small displays that can stick together to make TV as large as you want. It’s said these displays can stick together similar to how legos do.
The image is also said to be seamless, which means these displays would need to have no bezel. Other details are scarce, but if this dream project exists we are sure more details will come in due time.
Opinion: This is similar to the idea of modular devices, but with a much higher focus in TVs. It would be a dream come true for TV fanatics, but it all depends on pricing and availability… if it is ever released.
Google is said to also be working on a new messaging app, similar to WhatsApp. At least in the sense that you will not need log in with your account. It will likely work with your phone number.
This rumored messenger app is said to be in its early stages and could be launching in 2015. The Search Giant has been trying to enter the messaging market heavily. Rumors say they tried to acquire WhatsApp, but Facebook beat them to the punch. How can Google win the battle?
For starters, they do own Android, which give them a huge benefit. But that is not all they are depending on, it seems they want to hit the Indian market, which is an important country in the future of mobile.
Opinion: Do we need another WhatsApp? Will it succeed? It’s a very popular app across the world, and I think Google can really give Facebook/WhatsApp a run for their money.
Huawei is known for its affordable devices, and they have another one to show you today. The manufacturer has just announced the Huawei Ascend Y550, an affordable smartphone slated to hit the UK for under £100.
Specs include a 4.5-inch display, a 1.2 GHz quad-core processor, 5MP/2MP cameras and a 2000 mAh battery. Those interested in signing up for one can get their hands on it in mid-October via O2 and Amazon.
Opinion: Not a bad phone for the price. I am assuming that will be a Snapdragon 400 processor (don’t take my word for it), in which case it would be a good investment for casual users.
