The LG G4 is all set to break cover sometime in mid 2015. A new report now suggests that the Korean manufacturer might have made the last minute decision to use a fingerprint scanner on the flagship, considering what we’ve seen from the likes of Samsung and Apple in the industry so far.
LG Electronic’s mobile chief, Cho Jun-ho, is saying that the G4 will be “radically different” than the G3.
For starters, LG is joining the metal party by including a metal body on the G4. Moving on to software, LG will utilize UX 4.0, but it’s unclear how different it will be vs older phones.
The LG Watch Urbane is one sweet watch isn’t it? It is likely to be available in a number of places, but AT&T is the first carrier to announce intentions to carry it. They are even likely to offer discounts when pairing it with an LG smartphone. Unfortunately no pricing or timing was specified, but stay tuned.
Yesterday it was leaked that the next Nexus phone would be made by a Chinese manufacturer, and today we might know who that is. Not only that, it appears that there might actually be two Nexus phones launched this year.
The same leaker is now saying there will be two Nexus phones, one produced by the said Chinese manufacturer, and the other by LG. This isn’t something that Google has done in the past, but it doesn’t sound so far fetched since we already have both the Nexus 5 and Nexus 6 available at the same time. If you take into account that Google cannot call the next Nexus phone the Nexus 7 for obvious reasons, it’s likely they will make new versions of both the Nexus 5 and the Nexus 6. This would keep most customers happy since not everyone wants a 6-inch phone. It would also solve the issue of having just one expensive Nexus phone. The Nexus 5 could be more budget-friendly and the Nexus 6 would be the premium-priced version.
If you’ve been considering adding a tablet to your monthly cellular plan, Sprint will soon be selling LG’s G Pad F 7.0 on a two-year contract. The tablet comes equipped with LTE radios for Sprint’s network and is the first LG tablet that the carrier has offered. The tab is free on a two-year contract, and it runs just $10 a month on Sprint EasyPay.
LG has just taken the wraps off of its new smart watch, the Watch Urbane LTE. Now you could be forgiven for thinking that this is the previously announced Watch Urbane smart watch with added LTE connectivity, but you would, in fact, be wrong. Instead of running Google’s Android Wear OS, the Watch Urbane LTE is running LG’s ‘all new LG Wearable Platform’ operating system. You wouldn’t be alone in thinking that the Urbane LTE looks suspiciously like the smart watch that Audi showed off at CES last month that was running webOS, but LG denies any relation between the two.
LG has just started rolling out the much-anticipated Lollipop update to all unlocked variants of the G3, located in Canada. This upgrade brings the latest version of the Android operating system, together with a multitude of new features, bug fixes and stability improvements.
