lg_g_pro_2_official_color_options

LG announced the G Pro handset in February last year as a rival offering to the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. A successor was launched earlier this year in the form of the G Pro 2, although it failed to make any noise in the market. Reports are now indicating that poor sales of the series has forced LG to scrap the G Pro lineup altogether and focus more on the upcoming flagship, the LG G4.

Snapdragon 810 could cause delays for both the Samsung Galaxy S 6 and LG G4

Qualcomm_Snapdragon_Logo_02_TA_CES_2014

Companies only get one or two shots each year for flagship devices so they want to make sure they utilize the best specs available at the time. For next year’s devices, that means the Snapdragon 810, which is Qualcomm’s first 64-bit octa-core processor.

The early consensus was that the 810 wasn’t going to be available till June of next year, so I really didn’t think Samsung and LG would include it in the Galaxy S 6 and G4, but according to a report out of Business Korea, both companies are trying to utilize the said chip.

LG G Flex 2 could be announced at CES 2015

LG_G_Flex_Main_TA

Sources are reporting that LG is preparing to launch the LG G Flex 2 at CES 2015 in January. The device will be a successor to the LG G Flex smartphone. Although not a commercial success, the LG G Flex was really a device intended to serve as a kind of proof of concept for smartphones with something other than a flat, rigid screen. According to the sources, the LG G Flex 2 will include a new curved screen using a high-resolution plastic OLED and the self-healing back material that was present on the original G Flex.

In addition to building on and extending the curved screen and self-healing materials of the original G Flex, LG supposedly has created a new hard rubber chassis that can bend much more than the current model. Other than these basics about the device, no other information about the internal hardware or specs is available yet.

T-Mobile has it for the normal price of $299.99, but if you use promo code ACCOFFER18 at checkout, you will get 30% off, bringing the total to $209.99. You will also get Free shipping.
