LG announces new 7-, 8-, and 10.1-inch G Pad Series tablets

lg_g_pad_7_8_10_press_release

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.

New LG G3 image reveals a bit more of that brushed metal look

lg_g3_brushed_back_leak

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. Read more

Press render of the LG G3 in a case leaks once again

lg_g3_in_case_leak_evleaks_black

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. Read more

LG Isai officially released in Japan but not an LG G3 preview

lg_isai

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.

LG G3 stars in yet another photo shoot, this time in gold

LG_G3_Gold_Leak_02

The LG G3 has leaked again folks, this time in a gold paint job. As you can see, the images confirm what we have already seen, which is a very thin bezel along with a redesign of the rear button layout. However, there is one more new thing that we can share with you that the tipster also shared.

That thing to the left of the camera lens is not an IR blaster, nor is it a heart rate monitor. It’s some sort of “laser beam” that will be used for night shots. Unfortunately we don’t know anymore than that. The tipster did say the camera is going to be the focal point (no pun intended) of the device and confirmed a 13MP rear shooter along with OIS+.

One more image of the front of the device after the break.

LG releases its first QuadHD phone and no, it’s not the G3

LGIsaiFL1

While some thought that LG would be releasing the G3 as the first QuadHD (QHD) phone, they’ve gone in a different generation. First leaked by evleaks, the LG Isai FL was slated for Japan and KDDI and the company doesn’t disappoint as it has launched the LG Isai FL — the first QHD device solely for Japanese markets —  and while it’s not the G3 it does shed some light on what to expect with LG’s 2014 flagship.

New 5.5-inch Quad HD LCD display from LG gets announced, safe bet it’ll be on the G3

lg_logo_

Waiting for the LG G3 to be announced on May 27? We are, too. So this should make our mouths water even more. LG just announced a new 5.5-inch Quad HD LCD panel for smartphones. Clearly this is going to be the display technology LG opts to use in its upcoming flagship device.

The exact resolution comes in at 2560×1440 pixels and this is four times higher than your standard high definition display. Aside from being extremely crisp and clear, LG’s QHD LCD display will be very thin and have a narrow bezel. This fits perfectly with LG’s thin bezel design language.
