We have some very interesting news and rumors coming from LG, Xiaomi and Facebook. Ready to learn about today’s hottest stories? Let’s dive in!
The Nexus rumor revolution has already begun, with previous murmurs saying the upcoming device could be made by Huawei. As it goes with these Nexus rumors, though, it won’t be an easy puzzle to decipher. New reports claim Google is in talks with LG to possibly partner together to make the next Nexus device.
Google engineers have visited LG’s establishments, in South Korea. They took a tour of their facilities, and sources claim the device is to be called the Nexus 7….
Opinion: Wait… what? Another Nexus 7? Does this mean it’s a 7-inch phone? Does it mean they are sticking with generation numbers? Who knows, but take it all with a grain of salt. You know how these Nexus rumors can be.
Xiaomi’s Mi TV 2 is one hell of a television for only $640. In fact, it just may be about the cheapest 4K smart TV you can find around, but they plan to bring more options to those who don’t need such a high resolution 49-inch display.
Xiaomi CEO Lei Jun has taken it to Twitter to tell us a new Mi TV will be announced on March 24th. Furthermore, it’s being suggested there will be two versions coming; one with a 1080p display and one with a 4K panel. This can be assumed thanks to the company’s official page, which is asking users whether they think 1080p is good or if they would rather see a 4K TV.
Opinion: March 24th is just around the corner, so let’s stick around and see what Xiaomi has for us. I am also wondering if we will ever see these televisions outside of China. I certainly hope so.
Facebook Messenger is said to get a major overhaul at the social network’s F8 developer conference, next week. This is no normal upgrade, though. It seems Facebook is turning Messenger into a platform of sorts.
Anonymous sources say Facebook is opening the doors for third-party developers to make apps for Messenger. We don’t know how they will look, work or be implemented. Nor do we know who the initial partners are, but this seems like it will be a major project.
Opinion: I just hope Facebook does this right. They make a lot of messy decisions when implementing new features.
