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.

Verizon LG G2 can now be upgraded manually to KitKat

LG_G2_Front_Bottom_LG_Logo_TA

Who likes waiting for a carrier to update a device to the latest version of Android? Especially when that carrier is Verizon. Big Red is notoriously slow when it comes to updating devices. And while the LG G2 still does not have the Android 4.4 KitKat upgrade being rolled out over-the-air (OTA), it can be done manually through Verizon’s Software Upgrade Assistant. The program, though, can only run through a Windows PC; however, having a Windows partition on a Mac reportedly works.

Simply connect your LG G2 to a USB port on a computer and install Verizon’s Software Upgrade Assistant. From there, it should instruct you how to get KitKat running on your G2. Make sure your device has enough space as the update may be rather large.

LG L65 joins the L Series III as another mid-range smartphone

lg_l65_russian_press_image

The LG L65 that leaked recently is now official. The 4.3-inch IPS LCD display has a resolution of 800×480 and the design language stays true to the other L Series III devices. Under the hood, paired with 1GB of RAM, is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 dual-core processor that is clocked at 1.2GHz. The camera on the back has 5MP and the front has 0.3MP. The microSD card slot expands the storage by 32GB since there is only 4GB built-in. Powering this little guy is a 2100mAh battery.

The device runs Android 4.4 KitKat and is ready for sale in Russia for RUB 7,490 (or roughly $210 in USD).

New LG L65 appears to be joining the L Series III family

lg_l65_leak

A new image has surfaced via Twitter tipster @evleaks of an LG L65 smartphone. Although this model number was not mentioned by LG back in February prior to MWC 2014 when they announced the L Series III model line, it looks like it will be part of that family of devices. According to the leak, the screen size will be 4.3-inches, just a tad smaller than the LG L70 which comes with a 4.5-inch screen. The 5MP camera will match some variants of the L70 and the 1.2GHz processor is right in line with the rest of the L Series III line.

The other devices in LG’s most recent L Series all come with Android’s KitKat operating system so we expect the L65 will be equipped similarly. LG has not officially confirmed this device and no pricing, release date or market availability information is known.

LG Lucid 3 now available from Verizon Wireless

lg_lucid_3_brilliant_colors

Last month when images leaked of a Verizon branded LG Lucid 3, we figured the release date would be sometime in April. Verizon has met that expectation with the LG Lucid 3 now available online for free with a two-year contract. Consumers can also get the Lucid 3 for $12.49 per month using the Verizon EDGE program or pay $300 with no contract.

The Lucid 3 is a low- to mid-level Android device, though it does come with Android 4.4.2 out of the box. The screen measures 4.7 inches and runs at 960 x 540 resolution. The Lucid 3 is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and has 8GB of memory on board which can be expanded through the addition of up to 64GB via microSD. The Lucid 3 does support 4G LTE and comes with a 2,440 mAh battery. Being an LG device, it does come with the company’s KnockON technology to quickly turn the screen on or off and LG’s QSlide to let users run two apps at once via a smaller, resizeable window for one of the apps.

Mystery LG device hits AnTuTu Benchmark site

LG_LOGO1

Today a mystery LG device surfaced in AnTuTu’s Benchmark site that bears similar resemblance to the G3, except that it’s resolution is 1080p. This device could very well be the LG Liger (LG-F450). Upon further investigation, the phone has three different model numbers for three different Korean carriers: LG-F450K, LG-F450L and the LG-450S. With the specs of the device almost exactly like the G3′s , could we be seeing maybe a G3 Mini? Or perhaps a cheaper G3? Stay tuned!
