If Huawei's latest teaser video alluding to the Ascend Mate 7 hasn't captured your attention, how about a few leaked photos of the device itself? Scheduled for an official unveil next week at the IFA, the third generation Ascend Mate is rumored to offer a 6-inch full-HD screen, octa-core Kirin 920 SoC and a 13 MP camera.
With IFA less than a week away, Sony has shared a new teaser video highlighting key features that will be included in its upcoming Xperia devices.

While Android Wear continues to get the big headlines, Samsung continues cranking out more Tizen-based smartwatches. Its latest — the Gear S — brings about a large, 2-inch curved AMOLED display, 2G and 3G connectivity for standalone use along with Wifi and Bluetooth.

The second round Android Wear watch is a looker, but you'll have to wait for it
No more teasers. This is the LG G Watch R — the South Korean manufacturer's second Android Wear smartwatch. It's also the second round entry we've seen this year, the Moto 360 being the other. And it looks like folks are going to have some hard choices to make later this year.
Yes, we said later this year. (Which means we fibbed just a bit when we said "no more teasers.") The LG G Watch R won't be available until October at the earliest — fourth-quarter 2014 is all we've got at this point, and it wouldn't surprise us in the least to see it launch alongside the L version of Android
— and we don't yet know the price.
That said, the LG G Watch R is a looker for a number of reasons.
An OLED display rounds out otherwise familiar specs in the new LG G Watch R
Now that the LG G Watch R is officially official, it's time to take a look at the pure specs.
Not surprising is that they're mostly in line with what we've come to know in the LG G Watch and the Samsung Gear Live. (The exact Moto 360 specs are still under wraps, at least for a little while longer.) Same sort of processor, resolution and internals as the other guys.
