We’ve already got two LG smartwatches running Android Wear — but who said the company couldn’t double dip into the market, this time with a device running webOS?
It doesn’t sound like such a bad idea, as Samsung has already diversified itself by offering Tizen-based smartwatches in addition to its Android Wear devices.
Speculation seems to be true regarding LG and webOS, as the company had a developer website set up earlier today for the project. (Although it has since been taken down.)
There are some screenshots from the site, though — check one out above and another after the break.
LG has finally officially listed the G Stylus on its Indian website, along with a recommended price tag. The stylus-wielding smartphone is priced at RS 21,500, which isn’t too bad considering what’s under the hood.
The LG G Stylus packs a 1.3 GHz quad-core processor, a 5.5-inch qHD screen, and Android 4.4 with most of the G3’s bells and whistles. It’s also equipped with 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of internal storage plus the microSD card slot, a 3,000 mAh battery and a 13 megapixel rear camera. It’s certainly not a Galaxy Note killer, but if you like the idea of having a stylus without breaking the bank, it’s a solid option.

It looks like Verizon will soon be offering a brand new 10.1-inch tablet with LTE. This time the tablet is made by LG. An jpeg image link has shown up on the LG web site showing something with a model number of LGVK7oo. The WiFi-only version of the G Pad 10.1 is LGV700 so the new model number suggests that it will be coming to Big Red. The 7-inch G Pad on Verizon comes with a model number of LGVK410 where the WiFi-only version has a model number of LGV410.
Other specs include a 10.1-inch IPS display at 1280×800 resolution, a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, 1 GB of RAM with 16 GB of eternal storage and a micro-SD slot. It also has a 5MP rear shooter and a 1.3MP front camera and will have a 8,000mAh battery. There’s no word on when Verizon will get it, but chances are it’ll be before the holiday season kicks off.

LG has filed several new trademark applications with the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office. The three applications all include the term “Frame” in them and seem to correspond with existing device lines produced by the company. The trademarks include “G Flex Frame”, “F Frame”, and “G Frame”. Sources seem to think these may be names for a new generation of smartphones. It should be noted though that the descriptions cover a wide variety of goods and services, including several types of wearable technology.
LG is the latest company to venture into the rapidly growing budget-friendly smartphone market with its brand new handset, the F60. Unfortunately, the manufacturer has not detailed the exact price of the device, but it did state that it will offer LTE connectivity for a very ‘reasonable price’.
Earlier today, an unannounced LG-branded wearable passed through the United States of America’s official certification authority — the FCC. According to information included in the filing’s documentation, we’re looking at the South Korean company’s first 3G-enabled smartwatch.
Now that the announcement for the Moto 360 has come and gone, some are turning their attention to the LG G Watch R. The second Android Wear device to sport a round design, it looks more like a traditional watch and as such, may appeal to the mainstream crowd. Well, to keep folks interested in the watch, LG has released a new trailer showing off the watch in action.
If you use the internet even occasionally, you’ve definitely heard of #bendgate at this point. As expected, Apple’s competitors have begun taking shots at the tech giant in response to their unintentionally bending phones. Among them is LG, who recently sent out a tweet with a picture of their intentionally curved LG Flex, with a tagline of “Our phone doesn’t bend, it flexes…on purpose. #bendgate.” Check out the tweet via the source link.
When it comes to mobile devices, LG has been trying to be the next Samsung for sometime now. However, there is one area that LG has been lacking and that is processors. Samsung has the Exynos, which is as powerful as they come.
It has been rumored that LG was developing their own processor called, “Odin.” In fact, it showed up in benchmarks late last year.
On the heels of Sprint’s launch, AT&T will be launching this LG G3 Vigor later this week. The LG handset will be available online and at retail stores on September 26. With a new two-year contract, the G3 Vigor will cost $49 or $334 without. Through AT&T’s Next program, customers can bring home the mid-range handset for $13.96 or $16.75 per month depending upon how many months the cost is spread.
