More Images Of The Huawei Nexus (Angler) Leak Showing Off USB Type-C Port And Snapdragon 810

We got our best look yet at the Huawei Nexus phone (codename Angler) earlier today, and now we've got a few more pics from the same source. This time the phone is in a protective case that obscures many of the features, but there's one thing we can see plain as day—a USB Type-C port. It's happening.

tinyCam Monitor Pro v6.2 Brings Built-In Web Server Enabling Remote Playback Of Recordings, And More

tinyCam recently made the big leap to version six dot oh, dragging along a new icon and material design. On the functionality front, we saw the introduction of 24/7 background video recording. This allowed users to keep recording long after they've switched their attention to another app.

With version 6.2, the developer has added in an internal web server that lets users record video on one device and remotely access them from another.

[Deal Alert] ZeroLemon SolarJuice Chargers Are On Sale At Newegg: 10,000mAh For $28, 20,000mAh For $40

Hey, you! Did you know there's a gigantic ball of burning plasma in the sky that's literally giving away free energy right this second? It's true, there is! Unless it's night time where you live. Then you have to wait for free energy. Unless you have the foresight to store it away during the day with, say, a big honkin' battery. A battery not unlike these huge portable ones from ZeroLemon, those folks who make improbably huge battery replacements for every Samsung and LG phone. They're on sale today over at Newegg.

So the basic gist of these batteries is that you leave them out in the sun to charge up, then charge your phone/tablet/portable can opener with the free power.

[Kind Of Deal Alert] Get $100 In Google Play Credit When You Buy An HTC One M9

The HTC One M9 hasn't been selling particularly well. Certainly not up to HTC's expectations, at least. To encourage a few more people to pull the trigger, HTC is offering some free Google Play credit. Specifically, $100 of it.

[Deal Alert] The Android-Compatible Microsoft Band Fitness Tracker Is $150 ($50 Off) On Amazon

Are you looking for a full-featured fitness tracker on the cheap? Then Amazon has Microsoft's branded Band for $50 off today. That brings the price down to $150, pretty reasonable for a tracker with a full-color screen and a heart monitor built in. (The price from Microsoft's store is already a bit discounted, down to $180.) It comes with free shipping, and Amazon Prime members can get two-day shipping for gratis as well. All three models of the Band, large, medium, and small, get the same discount.

The design of the Microsoft Band is remarkably similar to the Samsung Gear Fit from back in 2014, minus the curved screen.

Possible Photos Of Huawei's 'Angler' 5.7-Inch Nexus Phone Appear Online

We've seen what might be leaked photos of the 5.2-inch, LG-made successor to the Nexus 5, now we've got photos that are claimed to be the Huawei phone that's coming at the same time. Google+ user Tiessen Fu posted three photos of a previously unseen phone with both "Nexus" and "Huawei" labels on the back.

The photos show the front and back of the device, and what looks like a standard protective case. There's a circular area on the back (which is more or less the same as the design from the previous leak), and considering that the case has an access hole cut out for it, it's presumably a fingerprint reader.

LG Announces The G Pad II 10.1: Snapdragon 800 Processor, 1920x1200 Screen, 2GB Of RAM, Wi-Fi And LTE Models Planned

A couple of weeks ago we spotted LG's new G Pad II 8.0, at that point announced exclusively for the company's home market of South Korea. The hardware is underwhelming at best: despite some interesting features like a full-sized USB port and a stylus, many were put off by the pokey Snapdragon 210 processor and 1.5GB of RAM. Fortunately, it looks like LG isn't going to go for the lowest common denominator with all its forthcoming tablets. The G Pad II 10.1, announced today, has a little more oomph to its hardware.

To begin with, it uses a 1920x1200 screen, which has become essentially the lowest point of entry for 10-inch tablets at this point (no matter what Samsung says).

Floatify Version 8.0 Adds A Ton Of New Capabilities, Makes Google's 'Peeking' Heads-Up Notifications Look Like Junk

Floatify has been around for a little over a year now. It's an app that presents an alternate way to display notifications, specifically the Heads Up (AKA Peeking) notifications that were hidden in Android 4.4 and fleshed out in 5.0. The app has been continuously updated even as Lollipop has become public, and now it's a full-fledged alternative to most of Android's built-in notification systems. The latest update is something really special - we kind of wish Google would steal some of developer Jawomo's ideas.

Chrome Beta And Chrome Dev Get The New Icon-Focused 'New Tab' Layout On Lollipop And Later

Want to see something new in Chrome for Android? Aside from essentially unlimited websites, of course. If so, and if you're using Android 5.0, 5.1, or the 6.0 preview, then download either the Beta or Dev version of the browser. Then go into the Settings menu and disable "merge tabs and apps." Now, go back to the main browser window, open the hamburger menu, and tap "new tab." Wey-hey, you've got a new interface to check out.

Left: new tab in Chrome. Right: new tab in Chrome Beta/Dev after disabling merged tabs.

The new standard swaps out the frequently-visited website thumbnails you're probably familiar with for icons, which are simply letters with some fancy background formatting.
