We're expecting a brand new smartwatch from LG in the near future, probably running Wear OS, and we just got some more evidence it's on the way – apparently the wearable just passed FCC (Federal Communications Commission) approval, which is a stage devices go through just before they're launched to the public. Keep your eyes out for this one.

4. The Google Pixel 3 could get a serious upgrade

Speaking of hardware devices we're expecting to break cover in the next few months, there's also the Google Pixel 3 and the Google Pixel 3 XL. According to some digging that users have done in the beta code for Android P, these two phones could get a serious upgrade in the form of wireless charging – it's certainly hinted at in the Android code.

And finally in our roundup of device rumours, a new report is tipping the next Apple Watch to feature solid-state buttons that don't move but give haptic feedback when pressed. Why is that important? Well, it would allow Apple to cram a larger battery into the Series 4 and improve the waterproofing too. The next Apple wearable could be with us in September.
