Google IO 2016 Coverage

LG Univa smiles for the camera

The LG Univa was originally on a list of upcoming LG Android smartphones that was leaked about a month ago. It just appeared out of nowhere at Qualcomm India On 2011. It has the model LG E510F and the “Univa” name is probably a codename for now.

It was sitting between the LG Optimus Pro and the Optimus Net without any identification. It runs Android 2.3.3 with LG’s own UI on top. It will have a 3.5-inch display, a 800MHz processor, and a 5MP camera.

We have no idea on availability or price, but expect it to be affordable considering the specs. We will let you know more when we hear it. For pictures hit the source link.


LG Optimus Pro and Optimus Net will have NFC in some markets

LG’s new Android smartphones,  the Optimus Pro and Optimus Net, have been in the news a lot lately. We have checked them out on video and learned they will have Gingerbread out of the box, but there is one other surprise. Near Field Communications (NFC) is going to be onboard in select markets.

We are not sure exactly what markets, but it is a good bet that North America and a few countries in Western Europe will be among them.

NFC is going to be fundamental moving forward because it will enable to us to make mobile payments which we know is the future. We already know that Google Wallet is coming and last week we told you about Paypal’s new service.

I don’t know about you, but these phones just go a lot more attractive.
