With IFA happening this week, there have been quite a few rumors and leaks over the past 7 days, some of which could relate to IFA as the event is expected to be the platform for some OEMs to show off some new goods. Motorola for example has been rumored to be getting their next generation Moto 360 smartwatch ready for consumers soon, and speculations place it at this week’s coming event in Berlin to get announced. This was fueled by the handful of image leaks where the new Moto 360 was likely spotted being worn by various Motorola and Lenovo employees, showing of the slightly altered design.

The new Moto 360 didn’t get all the leak attention though, there were more than a couple leaks regarding Google’s latest Nexus projects, one of which has long been thought to be the 2015 version of the LG Nexus 5. One leak shows off what could be the latest picture of the upcoming device accompanied by a list of specifications, while another claims a possible launch date of September 29th for the phone. Surprisingly, a rumored Nexus 8 tablet potentially showed up in an image leak as well, which may suggest there is an Android tablet coming this year after all, or perhaps sometime in 2016. There have been a few recent leaks regarding Android Pay, as support for Google’s upcoming mobile payment solution has appeared ready at places like Subway. There was also an image leak of what is thought to be the Samsung Gear S2, which is also expected to be making an appearance at the coming IFA event in just a few days.
