Today we are reporting on a couple interesting rumored devices – one from HTC and the other from LG. Amazon is also making headlines with their latest acquisition.
New rumors point towards an October release for a brand new HTC device. The new phone is said to be the “M8 Eye”, which could or could not keep this name by the time it is announced. The name is not what matters here, though. People are going nuts over this phone’s camera.
If these rumors are true, the device is to have a 13 MP duo camera. This would mean HTC is finally letting go of the UltraPixel sensors no one seems to like, but them. It’s also said the device will run on Android 4.4.4 and Sense 6.0.
Opinion: I stand by the theory that more pixels doesn’t always mean better quality. Let’s hope HTC does a good job with this M8 Eye camera, they really need to.
M8_EYE is M8 with 13MP Duo camera.It's coming next month with Android 4.4.4 and Sense 6.0 on board. Die ultrapixels, die 🙂 LOL

About a month and $970 million later, Amazon has finally completed the acquisition of Twitch. With this new transaction, Amazon takes over the reigns of game video streaming, as Twitch is the most popular among its kind. Apparently, Amazon was the best option to keep their philosophy alive.
“We chose Amazon because they believe in our community, they share our values and long-term vision, and they want to help us get there faster.”
Opinion: Google was likely to take Twitch into other ventures. I would assume Twitch was to become part of YouTube, and Amazon probably won’t do anything like that. Could this be what Twitch means when they say Amazon supports them better?
LG doesn’t seem to be satisfied with the LG G Watch and G Watch R. A new Lg smartwatch has shown up at the FCC and this time it’s not your typical device. This new devicce is said to have 3G connectivity. We don’t know much else about the device, but measurements seem to be 57.7 x 35.5 mm, excluding the strap.
Opinion: Something else I can assume is that this device probably won’t be running Android Wear. Android Wear is simply not design to run on its own, with data connectivity.
