As expected, leaked images related to the LG G3, scheduled to be officially announced on May 27th, continue to surface on a regular basis. The latest set of images is a nice one compared to some of what we have seen as they are press renders of the LG G3. This means they have pretty good clarity and detail. Notably, we get a really good look at the face of the device and what the bezels should look like. LG has made a mark as having thin bezels thanks to the LG G2, so many are interested to see what the size of the LG G3 will be like despite the 5.5-inch screen.
LG’s new G Pad line of three tablets (7, 8 and 10.1 inches respectively) have officially been outed, but individual specs have not yet been released — until now, at least for the G Pad 7, that is.
According to a recent AnTuTu benchmark for the device, it’ll come with a quad-core Snapdragon 400 CPU at 1.2GHz, 1 GB RAM, 8 GB internal storage, a 1.3 MP front shooter and a 3.2 MP main camera. The screen, of course, measures at 7-inches and display resolution is 1280 x 800.
LG’s answer to the growing popularity of fitness trackers like the Gear Fit and the Fitbit is their Lifeband Touch, which they announced back at CES. It still has the OLED touch screen for checking notifications and answering calls, and it’ll use vibrations to alert you to text messages, emails, etc. It can track your fitness records with MyFitnessPal or Runkeeper, but LG is launching their own fitness app, too.
With two weeks to go until their big unveiling event, LG has released an official teaser video today for the LG G3. The video does not reveal anything new that we have not already seen in all the leaked images and rumors. We do see LG’s new tagline for their marketing for the new flagship device – “Simple is the New Smart.” We will have to see how that translates to actual features and usability when LG reveals the smartphone.
Hit the break to check out the official video from LG. Are you looking forward to the new LG G3?
The LG Volt, or the L90 outside of the United States, is available starting today from two of Sprint’s prepaid carriers: Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile. But this is not your ordinary prepaid smartphone. The Volt will utilize Sprint’s enhanced Spark LTE connectivity, regardless of which carrier you go with. And for a prepaid smartphone, the specifications are not bad.
The 4.7-inch display has a 960×540 resolution and that seems to be the only iffy part. The processor is Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 400 clocked at 1.2GHz with 1GB of RAM. The micro SD card slot can expand upon the 8GB of internal storage by 64GB. And the batter is a very respectable 3000mAh. LG threw in an 8MP camera on the back and 1.3MP one up front. There is even an IR blaster and some of LG’s other software additions. However, LG has updated KnockOn to include Knock Code. This new feature utilizes a personalized tapping sequence to unlock the handset.
Hit the break for the full press release.
The LG G Watch isn’t expected until later this month, leaving plenty of time for LG to hype the device. A new promo video attempts to create buzz about the device without giving too much away. Among the phrases mentioned:
- “LG defines the smartwatch”
- “Compatible with Android”
- “Sleek and lightweight for all-day comfort”
- “Metal body for a timeless look”
- “Ready for anything, anytime with a single charge”
- “Waterproof for your outdoor activities”
There’s obviously a lot still to be learned about the G Watch, but this video keeps our interest. Check out the video past the break.
While we have to wait until May 27 to see their upcoming smartphone, LG decided to announce the newest tablets to join the G Pad line. For now, we just have a brief overview of the tablets and no specifications to work with. More details will be given at MedPi 2014 in Monaco later this week.
Instead of limiting the line to just the G Pad 8.3, LG has welcomed new 7-, 8-, and 10.1-inch tablets to create the G Pad Series. The company feels that one size does not fit all when it comes to tablets; therefore, this new trio serves just about everyone. The 7-inch is for portability and one-handed use. The 8-inch is optimal for multitasking and multimedia. And the big 10.1-inch member of the G Pad Series is for pure entertainment and fun.
We will have more on the specifications when the G Pad Series is fully unveiled. Hit the break for the full press release.
We still have a while to go until LG’s May 27th event when the LG G3 is expected to be officially announced. There is no shortage of leaked images floating around though like the one this morning that shows the backs of the white and black versions. Similar to the gold version and some previous images, this new image gives us a little better look at the faux brushed metal effect LG has created for the back plate.
Last weekend, the LG G3 was no stranger to the world. We saw the alleged beast in white, black with a case, and again in white with a case. Then we saw it with the display on. Now we have another look at the G3 covered by a case, but this time the image is of very good quality.
On the front we are looking at an incredibly slim bezel, something LG is no stranger to. Again, there are no physical buttons on the front or sides. Everything is on the back. Below the camera is a refined volume key/power button setup. Could it support a fingerprint sensor? Maybe.
To one side of the camera is the flash and the other side has an unknown component. Some say this is the IR blaster, and that could be true given the LG G Flex has it on the back.
LG officially released the LG Isai via KDDI in Japan yesterday. The smartphone is supposed to be a KDDI exclusive for that market. Historically LG’s Japanese phone releases have been a precursor to the release of new flagship devices around the world. Many people are expecting that to be the case again and are looking at the LG Isai to be a good indication of what the LG G3 will look like and what hardware will be included when released.
According to LG, the forthcoming LG G3 and the LG Isai are “completely different” products. Despite that claim, comparing images of the LG Isai to leaked images of the LG G3 reveal devices that appear to be very similar. That probably means the hardware is similar as well, like the 5.5-inch QHD display of the LG Isai.
