LG targets Apple’s iPhone 6 Plus with the G4’s display


There is no better way to be promote your device than targeting competitors negatives. And that is exactly what the site for the LG G4 does. In the display section that highlights its Quad HD (2560×1440) resolution, LG calls out Apple and the iPhone 6 Plus. The smaller iPhone 6 has 1334×750 resolution while the bigger sibling is Full HD (1920×1080). That pales in comparison to the G4, but, as we all know, resolution is not everything. Apple typically creates sharp and accurate displays. Regardless, the G4 does beat the iPhone 6 Plus pixel for pixel.

LG G3 confirmed to have QHD display, adaptive software


The LG G3 has not been shy of any leaks and today is no different. According to a source at LG who spoke with Phone Arena, LG’s upcoming flagship smartphone is confirmed to feature a Quad HD display with a 2560×1440 resolution (falling into the 2K category). Also, the source confirmed that the device would have a 5.5-inch display. This means that the pixels per inch measurement would come in at a whopping 538. Many of the current 1080p flagships have a PPI in the 400 range.

The bigger piece of information from this source comes on the software side. The exact description for it was “advanced personalization.” What this means is that the LG G3 will deliver information like reminders (location or calendar-based), alerts, and news in a way similar to Google Now. But that is not all LG is setting out to do. Apparently the software will adapt to your trends in order to create a custom interface. The source told Phone Arena that the device would give “helpful ideas” to improve a user’s productivity.

We were already pretty sure that the next big installment of Samsung’s Galaxy series would be called the Galaxy S5, and a recent tweet by @evleaks suggests that the rumors are true. The device is coming soon, and although we don’t know much about it, a second tweet from @evleaks showed an image of an .apk file with the word “QHD” in the file name. (3DTourViewer_WQHD_K.apk.) This may or may not have to do with the fact that the phone could come with a QHD display, but if it does, that’s a pretty big deal. We’ll see soon enough.

Samsung commences production of 5.25-inch displays for Galaxy S 5


Reports from Korean web side DDaily indicate Samsung has commenced production of their new 5.25-inch AMOLED displays to be used in the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5. The screen is expected to be a 2560×1440 2K display. Similar to the technology used for the Samsung Galaxy S4 and the Galaxy Note 3, the new display uses a diamond pixel arrangement. Each of the red and blue pixels is shaped like a diamond, with normal green pixels interleaved throughout, which is supposed to increase sharpness and pixel density. For the size and resolution, the Galaxy S5 screen will be running at 560 ppi.

The Galaxy S5 is expected to also come equipped with 3GB of RAM, a 16MP camera and will have Android KitKat 4.4 installed. Like other Samsung devices, the processor will likely vary by market with Snapdragon 800, Snapdragon 805 and 64-bit Exynos processors all believed to be candidates.

HTC 608t smartphone outed, brings a whole lot of One in a more affordable package



The HTC One is one hell of a smartphone— but its premium build and cost may be a bit out of reach for many customers. So with that in mind, HTC is quietly working on a stripped down version the device behind the scenes called the 608t. Design-wise, this mysterious new toy certainly mirrors One features including dual-stereo speakers on the front of the device, as well as a similar button layout. Of course the similarities end there as this Jelly Bean-powered smartphone features “modest” guts including a quad-core chip + 1GB of RAM, a 4.5-inch LCD display with a 960 x 540 (qHD?) display and an 8MP camera. Not too shabby HTC. Not too shabby.

Now for the part that you all want to know— the pricing and availability. While we don’t know the cost as of yet, the leak certainly suggests that this device will at least be headed for Chinese markets in the near-future. For those of us out in the States, there’s no word on if the 608t will ever make it out to our shores, maybe HTC will surprise us and unveil this device in the US at some point sooner than later.
