This year it is expected the arrival of new device Nexus, where rumors suggest that HTC is the manufacturer, but also a few days ago came the rumor that Google would be preparing the ground for its foray into the field of mobile manufacturing, this by means of a new smartphone designed and manufactured directly by them which would compete in this complicated market.
Apparently the idea of Google as hardware manufacturer is not so far-fetched, since thanks to the information collecting Android Police from diseaseslearning, through a confidential source, we are confirming that Google is already working in two prototypes of Android Wear smartwatches, that it would supposedly form part of the Nexus family.
The key names: Angelfish and Swordfish
According to Android Police this information people possess a high degree of reliability since it’s several people close to the plans of Google in this field, therefore are in position to ensure the fact that Google is already working in these two prototypes which so far are known to lower the key names of Angelfish and Swordfish.
Angelfish will be the high-end smartwatch, since it integrates LTE, GPS and heart rate sensor connection, your design will be circular, very similar to the bike 360 of second-generation or LG Urbane, but pulling a sportier look; apparently it will be fairly thick to reaching the 14 mm, while the sphere will also be large near the 43.5 mm. It will have three buttons for operation, a kind of titanium will only be available in “dark grey” color and will come with Android Wear 2.0 ready to run standalone applications thanks to its data connection.
On the other hand we have to Swordfish that points to the small family and with a circular looks very similar to the Time Round Pebble, the screen will be without bezel taking advantage of all the space for the screen, This will only have a button that will serve to activate functions that they say will be very similar to the Apple Watch digital Crown. Unlike his brother, here he has worked to have a more stylized design taking only 10.6 mm thick, thinner than the bike 360, and come in colors silver, titanium and gold rose, the bad news is that here the LTE, GPS connections are removed and possibly the heart rate sensor.
In both cases it would result in watches that they would bring the brand ‘Nexus’, they would be compatible with the new Google Assistant and all under Android Wear 2.0, this as part of a new strategy by the company to promote the use of its platform of wearables, which has cooled in recent months with almost no new release, why Google wants to take charge of the development and set an example as they have within their mobile Nexus that although they are manufactured by another company, Google is involved significantly in its design.
These so-called smartwatches Nexus they would arrive this year, Now we only need to Google to confirm this information, something that would happen in the next few weeks.
