The LG G Flex is a very unique device. It has a curved display and a self-healing back panel that makes it seem like Wolverine. Some complaints included the large 6-inch display, poor screen resolution, and an iffy camera due to the lack of OIS. So people have been wondering when LG would make things right and release the LG G Flex 2. Well, you are going to have to wait a bit more. Read more
An image of an updated LG user interface, specifically the home screen, leaked yesterday. Originally, it was deemed as belonging to the upcoming LG G3; however, the image was shortly pulled after. The questionable part comes in because QPair’s presence. That is an application that allows calls from an LG phone to be taken with an LG tablet. So this could actually be a leaked screenshot from the upcoming LG G Pad Series tablets. That is merely an assumption. Or it could all be a mistake and this belongs to nothing.
If this does indeed belong to an LG device, we are looking at the addition of a dedicated multitasking button. To the right of that is a button for pulling down the notification bar. You know, in case that 5.5-inch display is a little too large. Regardless, we will have some answers on May 27.
At this point, The LG G3 is leaking like a sieve, so why not a few more images of the device? These pictures reveal the lock screen, which has nothing unusual, but you will notice that the circular time widget lines up perfectly with the leaked image of the Quick Cover case we showed you earlier today.
Now there really isn’t much left for LG to tell us about this device, but one thing that has been an uncertainty is the extra sensor on the back. Some thought it was an IR blaster, while others speculated it could be a heart rate monitor. Last week, a report indicated it could be a “laser beam” for night shots.
As we get closer to the announcement of the LG G3 on Tuesday, May 27 we’re bound to see a lot more “leaks” of the device. This past Tuesday we saw the official teaser trailer released and yesterday saw the release of a press render showing the beast of a device off in all its glory. Today we’re seeing the device out in the wild. Not only do we see the G3 itself but we see the Quick Cover case on it as well.
As we can see from the picture, the device is big. Given the rumored 5.5-inch QuadHD display that’s not a surprise. We’re less than two weeks away from the official announcement of the device. Are you folks out there interested in the device?
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. Read more
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? Read more
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.
