Huawei Watch 2 rumored for February debut, will add cellular connectivity

The original Huawei Watch was released nearly two years ago, and received mostly great reviews (including from us). While being a bit large and fairly expensive, it's still one of the best Android Wear watches you can buy, and even can run the Android Wear 2.0 Developer Previews. The watch was removed from the Google Store last month, but it looks like a new model is on the horizon.

Blink security camera adds IFTTT channel for smarter arming, disarming, and more automations

When I reviewed the Blink security cam system a couple of months ago, one of the negatives I talked about was the lack of proper automation and integration in smart home systems. You could either manually arm/disarm the system, set a schedule, or ask Alexa to control it. There was no automatic option based on geofence, no way to consider irregularities, and no way to trigger things to happen based on detected motion or recorded events. One way to solve that issue is by adding an IFTTT channel and that's exactly what Blink has done.

There aren't lots of options available in Blink's IFTTT channel, but there's enough to open up plenty of integrations with different smart home devices.

Sword Art Online: Memory Defrag is the new entry in the hit anime series, available from Google Play

Bandai Namco seems to pump out anime games at a rate of knots unseen by man, so it's no surprise to see a new one in the Sword Art Online series, this time called 'Memory Defrag,' originally announced in June.

Google Play Music is testing an Autoplay option that resumes playback when you launch the app

For the past couple of months, Google Play Music has been testing an Autoplay feature that lets the app resume playback when you launch it. The option, which isn't showing up for any of us here at Android Police, seems to be a server-side test and a fickle one at that. Many users have reported it was there about a month ago and then disappeared, or it keeps showing up and vanishing. And for some locales, it displays as "Auto-play," while for others it's "Autoplay."

When turned on in the settings, Autoplay will trigger Play Music to check whatever song and playlist were last playing when you left the app, and resume that.

Another Play Store results layout shows up, this time with expanded cards

So you know how the Play Store has been changing things up a little recently, with new-look results, a different shade of green, a new Top Charts UI, and changes to how My Apps works? Here's another one, this time on the search results side of things, with one expanded card a line, instead of the more normal layouts, such as one big card then lots of little smaller ones.

Report: LG G6 won't have Snapdragon 835 because Samsung has claimed the entire initial supply

The LG G6 is the company's chance to come back from the embarrassing disaster of 2016's G5 and "friends." Those modular friends never caught on, but will the G6's rounded display? Maybe—the Galaxy S8 is rumored to sport a similar shape, but one thing the two phones might not share is the ARM chip. According to a new report on Forbes, the LG G6 will run a Snapdragon 821 instead of the 835.
