lg_lucid_3_evleaks

Say hello to the brand new LG Lucid 3 (VS876). Earlier today, @evleaks posted the above press render of the device (which has come a very long way). The device, which is likely going to remain in the mid-range field, actually looks rather respectable. LG has ditched the capacitive buttons in favor of a Samsung-like setup with a physical home button. Like the LG G2, the Lucid 3 looks like it has slim bezels.

The white icons in the notification bar suggest that the device will ship with Android 4.4 KitKat already installed. Unfortunately, Verizon’s branding strikes again and their logo and LG’s are crammed up top while the backside has logos spread throughout. There is no word on a release date just yet; however, if the Lucid series’ past is any indication, April would be the most likely candidate. » Read the rest

Screenshot taken on LG’s G3 pops up online, hinting at a quad HD screen resolution

LG G3 screenshot

We’ve been hearing plenty of rumors that LG’s 2014 flagship will sport a quad HD screen, but this latest leak is the best evidence you’ll see for a quad HD that you’ll see outside of an official announcement. A Dutch site reportedly took two screenshots on a G3, showing the lock screen and part of the settings screen. Want to guess what the resolution of those screenshots is? Yep, a 2560 x 1440 screenshot, or the resolution of a quad HD screen.

Even though Samsung disappointed the hopeful by launching the Galaxy S 5 with just a 1080p screen, it’s looking very, very likely that LG is going to bring an uber-high-resolution to the market this year. Is that going to be enough to knock off Samsung as the top Android vendor this year? Who knows. Either way, it’s going to be great to watch LG give Samsung some serious competition.

Analysts project Lenovo to become 2nd largest Android manufacturer

It’s no secret that Samsung has complete control over the Android smartphone market. The company has a market share of 65%, and has a marketing campaign that essentially squashes the competition.

Its main competitors, LG, HTC, Sony and Motorola have global market shares of 7%, 6%, 5% and 4% respectively.

Analysts are suggesting that these market shares will soon change. Lenovo, which recently purchased Motorola Mobility, will expand the brand to new markets in Europe, China and emerging markets. With a new focus, Lenovo/Motorola may be able to surpass LG’s 7% market share. Although making a run at Samsung may seem a bit far-fetched right now, it might not be in the future.

Last week, we informed you about a leak related to LG’s upcoming flagship smartphone, the LG G3, with the model number LG D850. There was also the VS985 model of the G3 which could be the Verizon Wireless carrier-based model. The company is expected to announce the device in May or June.

Now, LG’s official website has posted the User Agent profile of the LG D850 model. According to the User Agent profile, the model has a Quad HD display of 1440 x 2560 pixels. Does this mean that the LG G3 could feature a Quad HD display? We can’t be sure, but this news coupled with previous rumors about the device coming with a Quad HD display hints that the device could possibly sport such a display.

LG D850 said to be heading to AT&T, is this their LG G3?

Earlier today, @evleaks graced us with a piece of information that should start up some chatter about an upcoming LG device. An unidentified device, with the model number LG D850, is heading to AT&T at some point in the future. What is this device? More likely than not it is the LG G3, which is rumored for a June release. He provides a little background by saying “D800 was G2, D820 was Nexus 5, and D830 was G Pro 2.” It would make sense that this is the G3 as it is right in line with what LG is projected to have coming next.

And this morning, a Verizon device with the model number LG VS985 leaked earlier today. The LG G2′s Verizon model number was LG VS985; therefore, it looks like the G3 is fairly close to being announced. The device is expected to have a eye-popping 2560×1440 QHD display. Stay tuned for more information on this device. » Read the rest

comscore marketshare january 2014

comScore has released their numbers for smartphone market share in the US for January 2014, and the numbers are fairly predictable. Android commanded a majority of the market, accounting for 51.7% of all US smartphones, dipping half a percent from October last year. BlackBerry also fell half a percent point, while Apple pulled up 1% due to Android and BB’s small decline. Android still sat a full 10% ahead of Apple as of January, while Microsoft’s Windows Phone claimed a small 3.2% in third place.

AnTuTu benchmark suggests Huawei’s octa-core Kirin 920 is as fast as the Snapdragon 805 processor

Qualcomm’s upcoming Snapdragon 805 processor may not be the biggest and baddest one on the market in the future. According to a new AnTuTu benchmark, Huawei’s own octa-core Kirin 920 processor performs just as good. The processor is arranged with four Cortex-A7 and four Cortex-A15 CPU with ARM big.LITTLE architecture and Mali-T624; however, it is unknown if all eight cores can actually run at the same time. While the Snapdragon 805 earned 37,780 points, Huawei’s Kirin 920 came scored 37,363. Not too bad right?

It is becoming increasingly clear that Qualcomm is gaining some competition, even beyond Huawei. Samsung continues to release new Exynos processors (for part of the world) and even LG is working on Odin for future devices. Then there is NVIDIA, who is still working on gaining some of the attention Qualcomm stole from them in the mobile market. If not 2014, 2015 will be a year for secondary processors to become more prevalent.

LG’s new G Flex commercial is award winning

LG_G_Flex_Commercial_The_Most-Human_Phone_Ever

We have seen our fair share of commercials, both good and bad. Then there are some that belong in a completely different category. The ones that make zero sense and are just ridiculously stupid. We are only in the 3rd month of the year, but it might be safe to go ahead and give LG the award for the worst commercial of 2014. I won’t say anymore about it. Just hit the break, watch it, and wonder why you wasted 2 minutes of your life on it.
