LG has today announced its plans to launch a dual-SIM variant of its flagship smartphone, the G3, in Russia. The handset will be available in both Metallic Black and Silky White colorways and is set to go on sale within the next couple of weeks for RUB 26,990 — approximately $630.
LG has always been proud of the small bezels on their devices, but that doesn’t mean they’re going to stop trying to shrink them even smaller. Today, the company has announced a full HD 5.3-inch smartphone display that has the world’s narrowest bezel on a screen that size. The bezel comes in at just 0.7 mm, and as you can see from the picture above, it’s ridiculously slim. For reference, LG mentions that a credit card typically has a width of about 0.8 mm.
LG is citing their “Neo Edge” technology as the reason why this slim bezel is possible. The display uses adhesive instead of double-sided tape to attach and seal the internal hardware to the backlight unit, which removes the need for a plastic guide panel. It’s some pretty sophisticated technology that LG is no doubt very proud of.
The Galaxy Note 4 is without a doubt Samsung’s most powerful smartphone, and, according to a recent report, it may also be its best-selling. South Korean publication, News1, writes that the handset recently passed the 4.5 million global sales figure following its September 26 launch.
Starting today, residents in India can purchase the unlocked variant of Samsung’s largest smartphone, the Galaxy Mega 2, from the manufacturer’s online store for Rs.20,900 — approximately $340.
Oppo has been teasing us with the launch of its upcoming flagship smartphone, the N3, for a while now, and earlier today took to Twitter to announce and confirm the suspected date for the handset’s unveiling as Friday, October 29.
HTC took to Twitter earlier today to tease its upcoming ‘Double Exposure’ event, which is scheduled to take place this Wednesday, October 8. Unfortunately, we don’t know exactly what the company is planning to unveil at its exclusive conference, but if we had to hazard a guess we’d say either the much-anticipated Desire Eye or its upcoming GoPro competitor.

Last month, Sony introduced us to its Xperia M2 Aqua — a water and dust-proof version of its older brethren, the Xperia M2. At the time of the announcement, Sony stated that the device would be an ‘Asia exclusive’ and would not be making its way to North America. However, it now looks like that’s all about to change.
