Android M, the Xperia Z3+, and is Huawei making a Nexus phone?: Weekly news round-up
Once again, it is time for our weekly news round-up, where we put the most interesting stories from the past seven days for anyone who needs to catch up. Without a doubt, last week's most exciting news was the announcement of Android M at Google's I/O developer conference. We were given a sneak peek at the new release's key features. We even got to test-drive an early build on our Nexus 6 smartphone. The final release of Android M, however, isn't going to launch before Q3 of this year.

In other news, Sony announced the rumored international variant of its latest flagship phone. The handset known as Sony Xperia Z4 in Japan will be released as the Sony Xperia Z3+ in other major markets worldwide. 

And to spice things up a bit, we'll throw a rumor in the mix. It is believed that two Nexus smartphones may launch later this year, presumably alongside Android M's launch. One of them could be designed by LG and the other, surprisingly, might be a Huawei-made handset. 

For more of last week's most interesting news, flip through the slideshow below!

I have a question....I have a lot of 8mp and 13mp google plus photos occupying my account's storage space. Now that the new photos service accepts upto 16mp photos for free, is there a way to move those pics to the new service and get back my memory quota without re uploading?
