LG has finally announced the long-awaited pricing and availability information for its Music Flow family of Smart Hi-Fi speakers and soundbars. They ship with direct support for Google Cast, which enables Android users to instantly stream audio from their favourite online music services, like, Play Music, TuneIn and Spotify.
Verizon has finally started pushing out the much-anticipated and long-awaited Lollipop update for all its carrier-branded variants of the LG G3 located in the United States. In terms of added functionality, this upgrade transports the latest build of the Android operating system to the handset, in addition to a truckload of bug fixes and stability improvements.
Hit the break for the full changelog.
With the recent release of its Flex and Flex 2 smartphones, LG has advanced the field of flexible devices. It seems that the Korean company is looking further down the line though, according to patent D0726,140 that was awarded to it by the United States Patent and Trademark office last week. This new patent shows a design for a foldable smartphone-watch mash-up.
A site full of information about the LG G4 went live earlier today, and although it’s been taken down, it revealed quite a bit about the device.
One of the most important things detailed was what LG was planning on doing with the leather, and it looks like they’ll be offering some leather versions of the phone. The design takes a cue from what Motorola has been doing with the leather-backed versions of the Moto X, but the G4 definitely has LG’s own unique style to it. Read more
LG is launching the Watch Urbane smartwatch on April 27th, and what better way to tease us and maintain interest in the deliciously stylish wearable than the release of a new video. The video shows the Watch Urbane in a variety of poses, and possibly shows off the upcoming G4 as well. Read more
If you don’t want to wait for the G4 to officially release, you might be able to snag one a little early thanks to LG’s new Consumer Experience Program. The program will give away 4,000 of the company’s 2015 handsets to customers in several different countries to test drive the phone ahead of its actual release. Read more
Google has now started pushing out the Lollipop update to all Google Play Editions of the LG G Pad 8.3. This upgrade brings the latest build of the Android operating system (5.1) to the tablet, in addition to a truckload of bug fixes and stability improvements.
LG sent us an invitation this morning to join them in New York City on April 28 for the unveiling of the G4. They also included a short teaser video which reveals that the G4 will feature a camera with a f/1.8 aperture.
This would put the G4 ahead of Samsung’s f/1.9 aperture on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. We have already seen what those phones can do in low light so imagine how much better the G4 might be. The G3 had a fantastic camera so I am expecting big things from the G4.
Hit the break for the short teaser video, and you can also check out LG’s first look of the software that will be on the G4.

LG continues trying to drum up some buzz for their upcoming G4 smartphone since Samsung will get a 2 month head start with the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.
Today, they released a video teasing the new user interface, dubbed UX 4.0. LG claims it will be “human-centered” as in it will have the ability to anticipate the needs of the user.
