On release, the original Nexus was the go-to Android device if you wanted bang-for-your-buck. Sadly, its successor, the Nexus 5X, couldn't quite follow in its footsteps and with the Pixel, it appeared Google had abandon the Nexus moniker... and its price-to-power reputation. However, sources talking to XDA point to the return of the Nexus, though whether it's tied to actual hardware is another question entirely.
You're still going to have to wait until the end of the month to get your hands on LG's latest smartphone, the G6, but at least we know how much the device will (supposedly) cost, so you can decide whether or not you even want one.
When it comes to affordable smartphones with high-end hardware, it's hard to go past Xiaomi and in particular, its Mi5. Of course, you had to look past the lack of Band 28 and the risks associated with ordering overseas, but if these factors didn't bother you, the Mi5 is as bang-for-your-buck as mobiles get. Rumours abound regarding the Mi6, with recent news suggesting it'll follow in its predecessor's footsteps — mostly.
It almost feels like Google is pumping out new iterations of the Chromecast faster than people can buy them. While that's not actually the case, no one would blame Chromecast 2 owners for passing on the upcoming Ultra. If you do want an Ultra though, you might want to drop into your local Officeworks. Whether it'll sell you one or not is another question entirely.
You have to give LG credit for the G5. The smartphone, with its unique modular design, was an interesting attempt at differentiating LG in a saturated market. Unfortunately, rumours out of South Korea suggest the company, unsatisfied with the G5's sales and its production complexity, will completely drop its modularisation initiative going forward.
Deadline is reporting that Deadpool director Tim Miller is leaving the sequel over a series of creative differences with star Ryan Reynolds. Variety confirmed the news with its own source. Miller hadn't signed a formal deal for the next film in Fox's franchise, based on the Marvel comic, but he was reportedly working on the script and getting things moving for the planned 2018 release.
ASUS is gearing up for another smartwatch release to follow up on last year's ZenWatch 2. Rather than go down the common path with a sleek and futuristic design, these photos suggest the ZenWatch 3 will embrace a retro aesthetic.
Google has never shied away from building operating systems — just look at Chrome OS and Android. The thing is, they're both based on Linux and while it's open-source and incredibly flexible, it might not be up to the task for Google's future conquests. Enter "Fuchsia", a new, non-Linux OS the company appears to be developing.
Your lawn is a money pit that requires ungodly amounts of water and labour to keep it green and trim. We've known for sometime that iRobot, the Roomba company, has been on a mission to put your landscaper out of a job with a robot. Thanks to a trademark filing reported by Robotics Trends, there's a pretty good chance this lawn chewing beast will be called... "Terra"?
While it can easily be argued that iPhone evolution is largely incremental, Apple does have a history of taking bigger strides in design in alternating years. One year we will see a rejuvenated design, and in the next we will see updates to the features on that design.
Although this year was slated to be a "rejuvenating" year, reports are claiming it's not going to happen, with the next iPhone design being pretty much the same as the iPhone 6.
Android Pay's debut in Australia has been in the works for months and if rumours are to be believed, the service could begin trials as early as this week. Somewhat surprisingly however, just one of the big four will be involved in the launch.
As is tradition, some last-minute rumours are sneaking their way into the news before Apple's big reveal on Tuesday morning in San Francisco. We already have a good idea what of what we think is coming, but this latest bit that says iMessage is coming to Android is very intriguing.
Technology is strange. As some things get smaller, like smartphones, others grow in size... like smartphones. OK, bad example there. How about camera lenses? Sure, advances in optics have allowed us to cram three (and a billion) lenses into one, but when it comes to taking photos, sometimes you just can't compromise. And Canon's rumoured 28-560mm EF doesn't sound like it will compromise, at all.
