LG G3 Cat 6

Previously thought to be the LG G3 Prime, the G3 LTE-A Cat 6 has been unveiled in Korea, and will be for sale on July 25.

It’s a bit better than the international G3′s hardware, with an improved chipset. You’ll get the Snapdragon 805 with 3GB RAM, as well as the Adreno 420 GPU. In South Korea, the phone will also have 225 Mbps downlink capabilities because of its Qualcomm Gobi 9×35 cat 6 LTE-A modem.

Not surprisingly, the device matches up perfectly with the Samsung Galaxy S5 LTE-A for some international competition. We’re still unsure when (or whether) the rest of the world will be able to get their hands on the two phones.

Upcoming DROID MAXX and DROID Mini will each sport the Snapdragon 801

It looks like Verizon will continue to push the DROID branded handsets. Last year’s models featured mostly the same specs as the Moto X other than display sizes and storage options. Motorola will probably unveil the Moto X+1 in about a month so that means the new DROIDs will probably get announced around the same time.

A lot of people were disappointed when they heard the Moto X and DROIDs sported the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro as part of the Mobile X8 Computing System. This year, things are a little different. It looks like the DROID MAXX and DROID Mini are confirmed to sport the Snapdragon 801, which is found on all the flagships so far this year. Assuming there will be a DROID Ultra again, I think it’s safe to assume it will also sport the same processor, as well as the Moto X+1.

Even with the awesomely specced LG G3 not in stores yet and has just hit pre-order status on every major US carrier, people are already moving on to bigger and “better” things. According to a leaked flyer from a mall in Korea, an upgraded version of the yet-to-be released beast of a device is on the way. This new phone, that some are dubbing the LG G3 Prime, looks to be packing a Snapdragon 805 and Cat.6 LTE-A capabilities and it’s up for pre-order in Korea. Whether or not it comes this way is anyone’s guess, but if you’re wanting to wait for an upgraded G3 to the current spec-boasting model, then you’re probably going to have to wait just a bit longer.

With the newer Snapdragon 805 being all the rage as the processor to beat, other chipsets have a decent uphill battle facing them as they attempt to dethrone the Qualcomm chip. Only one has been able to do that so far, and that’s Nvidia’s Tegra K1. However if benchmarks are to be believed, the second chip to do so is the Exynos 5433. Codenamed “HelsinkiPro” the SoC is said to be an upgraded version of the Exyno 5430 — codenamed Helsinki. See what they did there?

LG G3 colors

LG’s 2014 flagship, the G3, hasn’t been released outside of South Korea yet, but that’s not stopping LG from planning what’s next in the pipeline. The latest rumors point towards LG releasing a new version of the G3 just months after the original was announced. This new version of the G3 looks like it will feature an upgraded Snapdragon 805 CPU and faster modem that would allow it to reach 225 mbps download speeds on compatible networks. Aside from those two hardware improvements, all of the other specs seem to be identical. » Read the rest

Galaxy S 5 Active benchmark confirms Snapdragon 800 and a 5.1-inch 1080p display

S5 ACtive

We’ve heard quite a bit about the Galaxy S 5 Active, but we’re finally getting a benchmark to confirm some of the specs. Like the S 4 Active, this device will share many specs with the original Galaxy S 5. There’s a 5.1, 1080p screen on board, as well as a 16 megapixel camera, but the processor will see a slight downgrade to a Snapdragon 800 instead of the 801 CPU found on the GS5. Not a huge difference, but it’s there.

There’s also 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage space, and Android 4.4.2 on board. The benchmark unfortunately can’t confirm just how waterproof and dust-resistant this device is, but considering the normal Galaxy S 5 boasts a bit of water resistance, it shouldn’t be a surprise to see Samsung make this thing extremely waterproof. An announcement shouldn’t be too far off.

It looks like the Galaxy S 5 with a eye popping 2560×1440 display will be exclusive to Korean carriers. Three versions of the Samsung device with the model number SM-G906 appeared and belong to SK Telecom (SM-G906S), KT (SM-G906K), and LG Uplus (SM-G906L). In addition to a gorgeous display, it will have Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 805 processor because it allows for displays with such resolutions to be managed. The interesting thing is that this LTE-A handset listed Android 4.4.3 as its operating system, a version not yet released or even announced.

Are you hoping this comes to your market?
