With companies like TAG Heuer and Fossil now investing in Android Wear, Google knows how important it is to keep smartwatches looking stylish.

Google’s brand new flagship Nexus 6P smartphone has only been in the hands of owners for a little over a month, but it’s already getting a quick software update. Below is everything owners need to know about the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow update. From installing it right now, how it’s performing, what’s new and more.
On October 5th Google finally released Android 6.0 Marshmallow to the public, and for manufacturers. Along with it was the Nexus 5X, and the impressive new Nexus 6P smartphones. Now less than two month later Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow is arriving for owners.
For the first time Google chose to collaborate with Huawei to manufacture the Nexus 6P smartphone. Now, fresh rumors suggest that both companies again will work together in building the Google Nexus 6 (2016) smartphone.
According to Gizmo China, industry expert Pan Jiutang has revealed that the alleged Google Nexus 6P successor will be a Huawei product. However, since it will be a flagship smartphone, it is likely to be powered by Snapdragon 820 chipset.
With the Pixel C, Google imagines a tablet as more than just a portable window into the internet. These things have to be good for more than endless Candy Crush and Netflix, right?
The current thinking is tablets needs to evolve, and so Google, like its rivals, has created its own, kinda-sorta work tablet, complete with keyboard accessory. Although I did manage to get work done on this thing, the hefty price didn’t justify the minimal convenience.
Google has said a quiet goodbye to the Nexus 6: as of today, you're no longer able to buy it from the Play Store. The decision appears to mark the end of the road for the 6-inch handset now that both the Nexus 5X and its successor, the Nexus 6P, are up for sale. If you're still itching to get your hands on one — though we can't think of a reason you'd want to — Amazon is still selling a 32GB version for $349.99. Google was not immediately available for comment on whether the phone has been permanently discontinued.
Sources also say that Google plans to launch a new Android One handset in partnership with an India-based smartphone manufacturer Lava. The phone is expected to cost less than Rs. 4,000, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow will almost certainly going to come pre-installed on that handset. As rumored recently, Sundar Pichai is also expected to give more control to companies which manufacture Android One devices, like Lava for example, which should make it easier for manufacturers. It is possible that there’s more to this event than Android One, but this is all the info we have at the moment. As a side note, Google has launched Android One project in India back in 2014, and up to today, Android One devices didn’t exactly meet expectations, let’s see what’s Google’s next step.
China is still the largest smartphone market in the world. Chinese smartphone market has been growing at an incredible pace for years, and this country is actually home to a ton of smartphone manufacturing companies. Huawei, ZTE, Meizu, Xiaomi, Oppo and OnePlus might be some of the best known China-based smartphone manufacturing companies, but there are tons of additional companies active over there, companies you probably never heard of. That being said, India is the second-biggest smartphone market in the world, and judging by its growth-rate, it might even catch up to China at some point.
