LG+d7251_G3_Mini_Leaked_Document

The news and rumors are starting to heat up regarding the LG G3, but the G3 Mini is also starting to make some noise as well. It just appeared in a leaked document revealing a few specs.

The G3 is codenamed B2, so it’s no shocker that the G3 mini is codenamed B2 Mini. The leaked model is D725, and appears to be destined for AT&T. It’s running Android 4.4.2 KitKat and it will sport an 8MP camera. The D725 was also found in a UA profile on LG’s website that revealed it has a 720p display, but we don’t know the actual size of the display.

On top of the expected Moto E, Motorola might also release two variants of the Moto G. A Moto G LTE and  Moto G Ferrari were leaked on website Xataka.

The Moto G LTE is pretty much self explanatory as it will probably be the same Moto G that has become our favorite budget phone, but with LTE. We actually saw what appears to be this very phone clear the FCC back in February with AT&T compatible LTE bands.

motorola_moto_e_logo_leak

Remember the Motorola device that leaked yesterday in with three variants? Those variants belong to the Moto E name. It has leaked again. The device, which is seemingly heading to Mexico (for now), is similar to the affordable Moto G; however, the specifications are slightly altered and the price tag reflects that.

For roughly 2999 pesos (or $230) without a contract, the Moto E brings a 4.3-inch 720p display with a 1.2GHz dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM powered by a 1900mAh battery. Internal memory integrated is sized at 4GB and a microSD card slot looks like it will be included. Also, a 5MP camera sits on the rear of the device.

LG Isai FL in pink leaks alongside some specifications

lg_isai_fl_pink

The upcoming LG Isai FL that is bound for Japan has leaked once again. This time, @evleaks has given us a look at it in pink. But the image is not the only piece provided with his tweet. Also included were some specifications. The LCD display, which pushes the bezel-less boundary, is 5.5 inches. Inside will be Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.5GHz paired with 2GB of RAM. In addition to 32GB of internal storage, LG is including a microSD card slot.

While this handset is clearly covered with a skin produced by LG, Android 4.4 KitKat is at its core. And the outside of this device will actually be water-resistant to a degree. As I noted in the last leak for this device, it could be indicative of the LG G3 or even the Nexus 5 successor. The design language resembles both last year’s LG G2 and Nexus 5. In fact, it looks like a cross of the two. Read more

It essentially uses 2 long magnetic coils to power devices through inductive charging. Not only could it charge your mobile devices, but it could also power things like your TV.
