Korea’s LG G3 LTE-A finally unveiled, features Snapdragon 805 processor

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.

Samsung Galaxy Avant comes to T-Mobile on July 30, remote device unlocking in tow

T-Mobile_Samsung_Galaxy_Avant_Leak_01

If you’re looking for a new budget phone, than you might want to check out the Samsung Galaxy Avant. We first heard about it back in June, and it’s expected to launch on T-Mobile on July 30 with a couple of new features.

It will feature a Remote Device Unlock, which will give you the ability to unlock the phone either permanently or temporarily. This would be done through a pre-installed app on the phone. All you will need to do it launch the app, and tap “Continue” which will then give you the opportunity to unlock the phone temporarily or permanently. You would then get confirmation that the unlock was successful and proceed to reboot the phone.

Want an updated factory image of Android L Dev Preview? Not gonna happen, a Googler says

Nexus_5_Android_L_Developer_Preview_Home_Screen_01_TA

If you’re one of the many who jumped ship from their stable Android version to try out the Android L Developer Preview, you definitely noticed it’s not exactly the most polished thing in the world (not even close, actually).

No reason to be mad at Google, though — it’s just a developer preview, and we’re lucky to have something before launch.

As most Android enthusiasts tend to do, we looked ahead, and hoped for Google to upload an updated factory image of the L Developers Preview. But according to Googler Rich Hyndman, it ain’t happening.

Samsung struggling with relative success, eyes Samsung Note 4 for help

samsung-galaxy-note-4-youm-display

When Samsung released the Samsung Galaxy S 5 earlier this year, it was generally praised as a solid smartphone and reports indicate it sold 5 million units in May. However, all things are relative and those initial sales lagged behind Apple iPhone sales and the pace that Samsung set with their Galaxy S 4. This appears to have contributed to some disappointing financial results and has left the company in the unusual position of needing a big hit with their next device to turn things around.

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

DROID_Ultra_Back_DROID_Logo_Motorola_Logo_TA

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.

Here’s our first look at the Moto G sequel

Moto_G2_Leak_01

Motorola is prepping the Moto X+1 for a possible release in the fall, but let’s not forget about the Moto G. The Moto G is Motorola’s best selling phone ever, so it can’t be a shock that a sequel is in the works.

This one might be called the Moto G 2, but we don’t know for sure. This device sports the model number of XT1068 and does look similar to the Moto E. However, the speaker grill at the top is a little longer.

The device is supposedly a Sony Xperia Z3X and it is unclear whether it will be a successor to the Xperia Z3 or a variant.

Latest rumor suggests HTC has more tablets in the pipeline

htc_volantis_leak_android_police

We have seen the leaked information regarding the forthcoming Nexus tablet that appears to be produced by HTC. If you are interested in an HTC tablet, but not necessarily a Nexus device or the 8.9-inch screen size, you may be in luck. A new rumor indicates HTC has a 7-inch and a 12-inch tablet in the works, with the apparent codenames T7 and T12 respectively. No other information is available.

Do you think an HTC produced tablet, possibly running a tablet optimized version of HTC’s Sense interface, is something you would consider buying?
