While more and more companies are making smartwatches with round faces, such as Samsung's Gear S2 that arrived this week, ASUS has decided to stick with a rectangular design for its ZenWatch 2. The wearable was revealed by the company during its IFA live event, and considering the original ZenWatch was aesthetically pleasing, we are not entirely disappointed to see rectangle faces come back.
When we got a hands on with the Huawei Smartwatch earlier in the year we were properly impressed with the wearable, which at the very least is among the best looking smartwatches we have ever seen. At its IFA event here in Berlin the Chinese company has now revealed when the Huawei Watch will land in the United States and how much it will cost.
Huawei has officially unveiled the Mate S high end smartphone at its live event at the IFA trade show in Berlin. This handset slots nicely between the flagship P8/P8 Max and the mid-range Honor 7 and comes with some very appealing specs, a winning design, and if Huawei sticks to form an enticing price tag.
A leaked poster shows that Sony is beefing up its Xperia Z flagship range with three new smartphones. Over the last few years the Z flagship has been accompanied by a Compact version, and again that will be the case with the Xperia Z5. So we know a Z5 Compact will land alongside the Xperia Z5 proper at IFA this week, but this poster reveals there will also be an Xperia Z5 Premium launched.
While Apple's iPad Pro remains merely a rumor, major rival Samsung is readying its own business oriented tablet, a device that has been leaked several times over the last month. Apparently the South Korean company is now shopping its 18.4-inch tablet to major carriers in its homeland, with a view to mass producing the slate in the fourth quarter of this year.
One of the devices Huawei will be unveiling at IFA in Berlin later this week will be the MateS, a smartphone that has been teased and will apparently come with Force Touch technology. Now we are getting our first look at the handset with this leaked shot that seems to show a real, if blurry, render of Huawei's high end product.
Meizu, complete with its brand new logo says that it sold 3 million smartphones during the last month, a figure that has been roughly maintained throughout the year. A portfolio of top quality smartphones in 2015 have helped propel the Chinese company to the elite and yesterday the company said it would be releasing a flagship ME5 at the end of the year.
Motorola has already launched the majority of its smartphone output for the year, but the company is not finished with products entirely. It has now been announced that the Moto 360 2 will be launched September 8th, with Motorola?s parent company Lenovo sending out invites for a media event.
Motorola has not released many smartphone over the last few years, preferring to stick to a core few handsets in the Moto and DROID ranges... oh yes, there was also the Nexus 6. However, under Lenovo?s wing the company has more backing and security so can experiment with more smartphone releases. Which brings us nicely to the Motorola Bounce.
Motorola is widely expected to launch a follow-up to the Moto 360 smartwatch, which was probably the best Android Wear device so far. However, while we are plenty excited about that, we are also eager to see Motorola's other new wearable, an apparent Moto 360 Sport.
