Android Wear devices are upon us and we are starting to see more availability details. Meanwhile, YouTube is giving us a handy update and China is getting a very affordable phone.
Google told us the Moto 360 will be available “later this summer”, but so far that is all we know. Phone Arena’s sources claim the device will be made available along with the Moto X+1. Both are said to launch via Moto Maker, which will be great for those who want to easily choose colors and designs.
Another rumor comes from leaks extraordinaire @evleaks has given us a bit of details on the LG G Watch’s launch. The device is already available for purchase via the Google Play Store, but it seems they may also be coming to Verizon and AT&T stores very soon.
Opinion: Both rumors seem very viable, coming from sources that have a good record on correct rumors. Of course, no rumor is 100% certain, though. Try not to hold your breath on these details.
YouTube has been the epicenter of video streaming across the web, but so far we have relied on separate apps and services to stream movies and shows. This is no longer the case, as YouTube has updated its system so that movies and shows purchased on the Play Store can now be streamed from YouTube.
This means you don’t even need to update the YouTube app! Your YouTube app should support it right now, and you may find your movies and shows under the “Purchases” section of the app and website.
Opinion: The Play Movies & TV will continue to work, but having centralized YouTube support is way convenient. At some point we may not even need that secondary app.
Chinese customers looking to get an affordable smartphone will soon have a great option from Lenovo. The device is dubbed the Lenovo A805e and should come with a $199 price point. Specs include a massive 5.5-inch 960x540p display, a Snapdragon 410 processor, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of ROM and an 8 MP camera.
A feature many of you may also like is the device’s dual-SIM support, which makes the device ideal for frequent travelers.
Opinion: Though it’s no powerhouse, the Lenovo A805e should be a great mid-end phone. It also comes from a renown brand, which is something we know most of you take into consideration when purchasing affordable smartphones.
