LG is saying good morning with an awesome leak. Meanwhile, Oppo plans to revolutionize smart watch charging and a new Android Wear update will bring huge changes.
We pretty much live off rumors and leaks most of the time, as announcement can take a while to come by. There is one device that has been avoiding our eyes for a while, though. Today we are taking our first look at what could be the LG G4.
Surprise, surprise! It looks just like we expected it to look. The buttons do seem a bit more refined and I believe there could be a slight curvature there, but those are about the main differences. All the leaker revealed is that the measurements would be 148.9 x 76.5 x 9.9 mm.
Opinion: I love LG’s flagship devices, but last year’s LG G3 turned out to be a bit disappointing. I am really hoping they will make things up with the LG G4. It may be my next phone!
Smart watches don’t usually last very long, but their small battery also entails a quicker charge. If the latest rumor is true, Oppo could be taking things to the next level by making an Android Wear smart watch that can go from 0% to 100% in just 5 minutes, thanks to a next-generation VOOC fast charger.
Opinion: We have no other details, but the smart watch looks pretty nice, and the promise of such quick charging is definitely enticing. I will definitely keep my eyes open for more details.

The Verge has it on good authority that the next Android Wear update will be pretty significant. This is because it will come with 3 major improvements, of which one is actually pretty huge.
Right now Android Wear is highly dependant on a bluetooth connection with your smart watch, but the next update is said to introduce WiFi support, allowing the watch to access notifications via other methods.
Other upgrades include the addition of gestures for going through notifications by just twisting your wrist. The UI will also get some minor changes.
Opinion: Google is working hard to keep Android Wear rolling, but can they go against the force that the Apple Watch will become? We will see.
