New info on LG G Watch shown on Google Play


With Google I/O only a week away, many are excited about Android Wear related announcements. Recent rumors suggest that the LG G Watch will be given away at the event, hinting at an imminent retail availability for the device. Another sign of a retail release has popped up, this time in the form of some G Watch related text popping up on the German version of the Google Play Store.

It seems that there was a slight mixup in the database of the Play Store, and where there’s normally text describing the categories in the Play Store, instead there was briefly text from what appears to be the G Watch’s listing.

The first sign of an LG smartphone with its upcoming Odin processor has arrived. The model number of the unknown device was posted by @UpLeaks, who says “Liger_LGU_KR is the first phone which powered by LG Odin chipset.” The first part is probably some identification code, but the actual model number is allegedly LG-F490L. What the device will actually be called, we do not know. But we do know that it will have a new octa-core processor made in-house at LG.

LG G Watch with built-in SIM card slot possibly being released only in Korea


At the end of last month, a report appeared that made it seem like the LG G Watch would have a cellular connection thanks to a built-in SIM card slot. And a few weeks ago we the leaked G Watch system dump highlighted a cellular connection option. In the United States, though, you may have to keep waiting to get your hands on a smartwatch with its own data connection. Instead, it now seems that the LG smartwatch with a cellular connection, LG-W105S, will be heading to Korea only. This one never came up in an FCC filing; therefore, it does not look like the United States will have the G Watch with a built-in SIM card slot.

LG may launch a G3 with Snapdragon 805 CPU next month

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.

Verizon to get LG G3 in mid-July


When LG announced the LG G3 at the end of May, one key piece of information that was missing was a schedule of availability. LG has gone on a bit of a marketing blitz regarding the new LG G3, but the question that seems to inevitably keep coming up is, “when can I get one?” For Verizon customers, a new leak suggests it will be the middle of July. The tip, routed through @evleaks, indicates Verizon will start taking pre-orders on July 10th and the device will actually be available starting on July 17th.

Unless something unusual is in the works, we suspect the other major carriers may release the LG G3 on the same day, so we will keep an eye out for those announcements or leaked information along with confirmation from Verizon that this date is accurate.

LG G Watch to hit the UK in early July


Slowly and slowly we are starting to hear more about the LG G Watch. Yesterday, we found out a little about the specs and the fact that it could very well be a Google I/O freebie, but it has also been revealed that it will go on sale in the UK on July 7. Now that doesn’t mean that the U.S. will get the same release date. In fact, for all we know, it could be released in the Play Store during Google I/O, which is June 25-26.

As far as pricing, it’s expected to be cheaper than the Gear 2 Neo, which is £169.99, but nothing specific. We do expect that it will retail for $199 here in the U.S.

‘Prime’ phones could be in LG’s future


It’s amazing how many times we hear the “Prime” name for smartphones, but they never seem to actually get used. We had the Nexus Prime a few years ago, the premium version of the Galaxy S 5 is supposed to be the Galaxy S 5 Prime, and we even had the HTC One (M8) Prime, not to mention the One (M9) Prime. Now it appears LG wants to use the same name, but they actually trademarked it along with letters that could signify future smartphones.
