A sneak peek at LG's flexible phone/tablet for early 2018

Culture
[MUSIC] What's going on, Brian Tong here, we're back for more of that Googlicious. There's an unofficially leaked Galaxy S8 video from Samsung. We'll get to that but let's start with Androidware A new report from Evan [UNKNOWN] says the android wear 2.0 watches that google confirmed last month will be LG made and called the LG watch sport and the LG watch style with an official announcement coming on February the 9th. Now the early [UNKNOWN] we've seen are exactly what we can expect from the final product. The LG watch sport will be the [UNKNOWN] and larger of the two with a 1.38 inch display. IP68 waterproofing with WiFi, bluetooth, both 3G and 4G LTE connectivity, Android Pay, a heart sensor, and GPS. See, that's a watch. The LG Watch Style will be slimmed down with a smaller 1.2" screen, with no Android Pay, no cell connectivity, no GPS, and a lesser IP67 waterproofing. In other tidbits, Blast reports both watches will have a digital crown that is similar to Apple's watch but no details were given on its functionality. The watches will go on sale on February the 10th and the day after the announcement. All right, flexible and foldable devices are most likely Coming this year. The Korea Herald reports Samsung Galaxy X project for a bendable smartphone is on track with plans to be revealed in the third quarter of this year. Now LG is also in that race, and pictures from LG patents from GSM Info shows us what they might be thinking with their own smartphone tablet hybrid device. Now check out this initial drawing that show a screen that's slightly detached on the side edge when folded into its smartphone mode which leaves this strip for physical controls. But when you open it up like a tablet, the screen covers an entire surface. This is pretty ridiculous and honestly, pretty awesome. Now again, these are just renderings but reports point to launch at the beginning of 2018 for this LG device. Okay, Samsung Display released a couple videos on their YouTube Channel to showcase their AMOLED technology but set the internet on fire because They might have just leaked out the Galaxy S8 at the same time. S8 design rumors basically match the phone that we're seeing in this video with minimal side bezels and slimmer ones on the top and bottom. So we wanted to just give you a little eye candy. Samsung has not confirmed or denied what it is and they haven't taken it down either but we're going to put our money on it and say that's the next Galaxy SE. Alright, Google is bringing their Android 1 phone that was originally targeted for developing markets to the US with a launch sometime this year for a 200 to 300 dollar price range. Even in developing countries, a phone of that price isn't Fly. But they might be able to make a dent here, in the US. Plus it's an alternate to the Google Pixel, that starts at $649. Now at CES 2017, they showcased a lot of smart home integration. And let's be honest, everyone is jumping on the Amazon Echo gravy train. But Google Home still has a lot to catch up When it comes to third party partners, Vizio is jumping on board with them with their SmartCast products that include TVs, home speakers, sound bars and surround sound systems to be compatible with the Google home platform. Now you'll be able to do things like voice control for your system for. Volume up and down, pause and play music or even power on Vizio's TVs. And, a new way of sharing is coming to YouTube, but it's only available in Canada right now. See this is cool. You'll see a video you like, and you can share it to Some of your contacts and it becomes a conversation right within the YouTube app. Why Canada? Well, Google said they share 50% more than others around the world. Add this to the list of things I'm jealous of Canada for having and including Whistler, Maple syrup and better tasting Hershey's chocolate. Yeah, look it up. So if you want in on this, you need a friend in Canada to add you to a YouTube conversation, so Good luck. All right that's gonna do it for this week. You can e-mail me at googlicious.cnet.com or tweet me @briantong. Thanks so much for watching. We'll catch y'all next time for some more of that's Googlicious. [MUSIC] Googlicious. [MUSIC]
