While Pokemon GO fever is still going wild with a large number of smartphone owners, it might seem like there is little else going on in the world of Android devices. On the contrary, though, there was quite a few noteworthy things to happen in the past week. Perhaps the most exciting was the reveal for what is now largely thought to be the Galaxy Note 7 announcement, as Samsung sent out invites this past week to the press for their second 2016 Unpacked event to happen on August 2nd. With the design of the S Pen showing on the invite image, it's highly likely to be the unveiling.
This past week also revealed a video of 3D renders of the previously leaked Sailfish Nexus renders that went out during the week prior to this past week, and some renders made their way to the web for the rumored smartwatches that Google is suspected to be making. A leak for a brand-new and so far unannounced Xiaomi Phone has popped up on Geekbench this past week, and LG is suspected to be releasing the LG V20 in September. Speaking of rumors, Sony is also rumored to be releasing or announcing a new smartphone at the upcoming IFA conference in Berlin, and YouTube has confirmed that they will be streaming the U.S. National Convention in VR.
