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.

Hit the break for the full press release. Read more

T-Mobile LG G Flex receiving update today; It may or may not be KitKat

gsmarena_001 (1)

Today T-Mobile is supposedly rolling out the KitKat OTA update for their LG G Flex device. Problem is, is it even KitKat? According to the source link below, it shows Android 4.2.2 as the software. At first I thought it may just be a typo, but the file size is a mere 149MB’s. Seems a little low considering the G2’s KitKat file was about 1.5GB’s in total. Of course, these are just my speculations. Also, it seems users from XDA are reporting that the update has been pulled with no reason given.

If you have a T-Mobile G Flex, have you gotten the update notification today? And if so, is it KitKat?

LG G3 press render leaks yet again, this time the display is on

lg_g3_black_tip_evleaks_in_black_case_screen_on

Within the last few days, we have seen plenty of the upcoming LG G3. A few days ago, we saw multiple photos of the handset surface on the web. Yesterday, @evleaks shared two press renders. It featured the LG G3 once in black and again in white. Now we have a press render of the device with the display illuminated.

The takeaway from the image above is that LG’s goal of eliminating a smartphone’s bezel is coming along. The LG G2 was applauded for this and now it has caused other smartphones’ bezels to be compared. We also see on-screen buttons are still present, but that is something we have known already. Look closely, though, and you will notice below the weather forecast that the device is suggesting an umbrella be taken with you. This could be the first sign that LG will be implementing adaptive software.

LG G3 press render leaks once again, this time in white and seemingly within a case

lg_g3_white_tip_evleaks_in_white_case

On Saturday, a press render of the LG G3 surfaced on Twitter thanks to a tip received by @evleaks. It showed the handset in black and presumably covered by a case. Once again, @evleaks has followed up with an additional image.

The image above is an alleged press render of LG’s upcoming flagship in white. It looks like this one also features the handset enclosed in a case. Regardless, we can see that LG is going the Nexus 5 route and keeping the front completely black rather than making everything the same color. This choice was reflected in a previous leak. And if this is indeed the G3 in a case, the cutout on the top left is likely for an IR blaster.

Stay tuned for LG’s press event on May 27.
