  1. Unsurprisingly, Google and LG are reportedly partnering to build the next-generation Nexus smartphone. According to a report by Gizmodo Germany, the phone makers will once again join forces to develop the Nexus 6. LG manufactured Google's last two handsets—the Nexus 4 and 5. The latter hit the market in late October, equipped with the latest version of Android, KitKat. In fact, a bright red version of the Nexus 5 just hit the Google Play store a month ago, joining its black and white counterparts in 16GB and 34GB versions.With that in mind, Android Senior Vice President Sundar Pichai recently said the next Nexus will not reach the public any time soon. "I can assure you it will not be released in the first half of the year," he told a French blog during last month's Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. But that hasn't stopped the rumor mill from spinning. Details are scarce, but the German tech blog suggested that the Nexus 6 will actually be a stripped-down version of the yet-to-be-unveiled LG G3, which CNET suggested will sport a 5.5-inch, 2,560-by-1,440 Quad HD screen, a 64-bit processor, and a 16-megapixel rear camera. With Google's annual I/O developer conference scheduled for June 25-26, it's possible the search giant will reveal its next-generation Nexus then. Neither Google nor LG immediately responded to PCMag's request for comment. LG has been working on its own lineup of handsets, including the world's first curved smartphone, the 6-inch G Flex, which launched nationwide on Feb. 5.For more, see PCMag's review of the Google Nexus 5 and the slideshow above, as well as our review of the LG G Flex. The German site also tipped the release of a Google Nexus smartwatch from LG, but offered no further details about the wearable tech. Source

    LG G Pro 2 coming next month

    The latest rumor on the LG G Pro 2 that is eventually coming next month, is that it will sport a 6" Full HD screen, 3 GB of RAM, and be powered by a Snapdragon 800 processor. This citation from Korean media differs quite a bit from the last speculation on the device, which pegged it with a 5.9" display at 1440x2560 pixels of QHD resolution, so apparently we'll be on our toes until MWC time, when the phablet is said to be unveiled with Android KitKat on board. It's kind of hard to fathom why would LG want to release the 6-incher with "just" a 1080p screen, though. All flagships this year are expected to sport QHD displays, and it would be easier and less expensive to make a 6" panel with 1440x2560 pixels, than a smaller one. On the other hand, LG usually tries to be the first to announce something new, but we already had the Vivo Xplay 3S unveiled with a 6" QHD panel, so that feat goes out of the window. Moreover, if Samsung indeed outs the Galaxy S5 details on February 23rd at its pre-MWC event, it will steal the QHD thunder quite a bit, so LG might have decided to keep it simpler this time. Not that a Full HD phablet with 3 GB of RAM and powerful Snapdragon is anything to sniff at, so we'll just have to wait and see what would really happen in just a few weeks from now. As always, we'll be right smack in the middle of all the action in Barcelona, and will relay each and any info that comes our away on the spot. Source
  3. The flexible, curved phablet has started appearing on websites of European retailer with a February 1 launch date. The pricing in the UK from Carphone Warehouse starts at a relatively low £50 for the device, but that's paired with a contract with a steep monthly fee of £57 (on O2). There's a better offer for upgraders – nothing upfront and £42 a month. SIM-free prices in the UK run pretty high – Amazon UK is asking £590, while Expansys is running the pre-order at £690. Phones4u has a news article about the G Flex coming to the UK, but no pricing yet. We also dug up the LG G Flex in Germany for some euro prices - €850 to be precise from Amazon. There's also an offer from NotebooksBillinger at €900. There are a few cheaper offerings - €750 on Amazon France but be careful with those as that's the South Korean model (F340). Source
  4. LG might be readying new colorful edition for the Nexus 5 flagship after all. First we saw what seemed to be an official Play Store listing with six new colors - yellow, red, blue, green, orange, and purple. Unfortunately this turned out to be fake. And just when we thought the rumor is dead, we saw a red Nexus 5 posing in front of a camera. Today we get to see something better - a whole batch of red-flavored Nexus 5 retail boxes. You can see official markings, IMEIs, serial numbers and everything. It seems the red Nexus 5 is real and will probably launch shortly. The previous rumors suggested a yellow edition is coming too, so those six new flavors might deserve the benefit of the doubt. Source
  5. Russian blogger Eldar Murtazin said on Twitter that the Nexus line of devices will be discontinued in 2015, replaced instead with a new brand spawned from the current Play Edition family. Google has launched various Play Edition devices this year, including the HTC One, the Samsung Galaxy S4, the LG G Pad 8.3, the Sony Z Ultra and the Motorola Moto G. Essentially these devices run a pure version of Android, with no OEM user interface and bloatware on top. However, these devices aren’t updated directly by Google, but by OEMs, meaning that new Android OS versions first reach Nexus devices, and only later Google Play Edition devices. Murtazin has not detailed where he received his information from but said in following tweets that new Nexus devices are expected for this year. While the blogger has been accurate with mobile predictions in the past, he has also been wrong before. Interestingly though, Nexus smartphones and tablets may be on a name collision course for 2015, when a Nexus 7 (2015) tablet may be simultaneously launched with a Nexus 7 smartphone – that’s assuming Google’s current naming patterns for its Nexus smartphones and tablets would be kept in place, and that the company would continue to make 7-inch tablets of its own. In addition to talking about the death of the Nexus family life, Murtazin has tweeted several other bits of information, most of them related to the newly inked Google Samsung cross-licensing patent deal. The blogger said that Samsung will not only get patents for Google, but it will also secure hardware development, hinting that more Google Play Edition Samsung handsets may hit the Google Play Store in the future. Furthermore, he added that Samsung will stop developing Tizen for smartphones in the future, a decision that it has reportedly taken without being influenced by Google. The blogger also said that TouchWiz will evolve in extra features, that will “be an integral part of future Android versions,” which “others” will pay for – it’s not clear whether he meant that other OEMs will pay to use Samsung TouchWiz features or whether users will have to pay to access some of these features. Murtazin also said that Google will not be competing against Samsung or any other brand in hardware, and that the company is considering reprofiling Motorola in the future. Finally, Android will be somewhat restricted from use by some companies including Microsoft, which may mean that even if other companies will fork Android, they may not get access to Google’s apps including Google Play Store. Just like with the Nexus tweet, the blogger did not reveal where he got his information regarding the Google Samsung deal. Source
  6. LG spilled the beans on the announcement and the name of the successor of the LG Optimus G Pro. The upcoming phablet will go official in February (MWC in Barcelona is likely) as the LG G Pro 2. Unsurprisingly, LG removed the ‘Optimus’ moniker from the name of the yet to be seen handset. Like the latest batch of high-end smartphones from the Korean manufacturer, the device will launch as simply a member of the 'G' lineup. In case revealing only the name of an upcoming device appears to be an odd move by LG, we must point that this isn’t the first time the company pulls such a trick. Last year, the manufactuer revealed the name of its current flagship, the LG G2 in a similar fashion. Source
  7. LG’s flagship, the G2, turned out to be a pretty great phone from 2013 and while it hasn’t sold all that well it’s still a brilliant option for folks – as we found out in our review. It’s a good-looking phone in either the standard black or white models but, things are about to get a little bit more colorful regarding the G2. LG have officially announced two new colors of the device in Singapore and Asia to celebrate the Chinese New Year, which starts in the next couple of weeks. Red and gold versions of the device have been announced and unlike other colored variants, LG has changed their back panel a little bit. On these new versions, the back is textured and should offer a little more grip. Right now, these new colors have been announced for Singapore and are available for $898 SGD and will be available from January 18th on local carriers Starhub, SingTel and M1. Obviously, the Chinese New Year isn’t a holiday in the US but, there’s a good chance that LG will launch these colors around the rest of the world regardless. After all, with sales of the G2 not doing that well, a couple of new colors might encourage people to take notice once more. More choice is always a good thing though and we hope that LG is looking to bring these West. The G2 is still the same phone in whatever color you get, the same Snapdragon 800 and 5.2-inch display with the innovative button placement. No matter what variant of the G2 you get, you’re in for a pretty good experience and while LG have struggled with updates in the past, an Android 4.4 update is pegged to arrive shortly for the G2. If you’re not interested in colors and just like the thought of picking up a G2, you can check out the deals over at Amazon where you can get a G2 on AT&T for just $0.01. Will a couple of new colors make that much of a difference for the G2? It’s unlikely but, there’s a chance people will start to take a little more notice of their flagship device in a new outfit.

  8. It’s a tricky one as always with Android. Google claimed it has made huge optimizations to the platform and its core apps so even devices with 512MB of RAM (the overwhelming majority of Androids across the world are actually low-end devices with 512MB of RAM) can have a good, smooth Android experience. The new Android 4.4 KitKat however still seems to be coming first and only to the top-shelf devices.Here is a list of phones we know will get the update.We have added a timeframe for that update.The information comes straight from the manufacturer, so it is official.

  9. At around 6:30pm a driver stopped at a truck stop in Gary, Indiana for a quick break and when he came back he found his truck missing. The cargo he was driving? 22,500 LG G2 phones headed to Sprint stores in Louisville, Kentucky. Indiana and Illinois state police along with the FBI have launched an investigation. Phone heists are nothing new – though it’s usually an iPhone that’s the target. However, in the iPhone cases it was a couple of hundred units worth around $100,000 in one case and £100,000 in the other. An LG G2 off contract costs $630 new so this heist was worth about $14 million. Will phone heists become the 21st century equivalent of the bank robbery? Maybe not, but the Indiana market is probably about to be flooded with cheap G2s. source: gsmarena
  10. The Nexus 4 officially did not have LTE support, tough people found a way to enable the hidden 4G connectivity. That didn’t work too well, but recently we’ve been seeing rumors that a Nexus 4 LTE is in the works. A Bluetooth certification just confirmed those rumors. The designs were submitted on October 24th and were listed on the 25th. The Design model number is listed as LG-E960 (that’s the model number for the Nexus 4) but the Design description calls the device “LGE LTE Mobile Phone(LG-E960)”. The listing is linked to the listing for the E960 but also linked to the one LG-D821, which is the model number of the upcoming Nexus 5. The Nexus 5 will cost $400 for the base 16GB model, while the Nexus 4 LTE 16GB will be a cheaper alternative at $300. The current 16GB Nexus 4 is $250. source: gsmarena
  11. An Argentinian broadcaster Telefe apparently managed to obtain the phone for an in-studio hands-on video, and journalist Federico Ini also manage to provided some additional photos. According to Ini, the G Flex's curved screen is 6 inches across, and the phone features rear-mounted buttons in a similar style to the LG G2's. The camera is said to be 13 megapixels, matching both the G2 and Samsung's Galaxy Round, which has an OLED display that curves on a different axis. The G Flex is reminiscent of LG and Samsung's curved OLED TVs, with the screen's edges slightly turning inwards when viewed in landscape orientation. While the G Flex is yet to be officially announced by LG, these videos and photos may be as close as you ever get to the phone: Ini says that the G Flex will be launched in South Korea next month, with no release planned for the US, Europe, or Latin America. When reached for contact, an LG representative in South Korea told The Verge that he was unsure of the device's veracity and would have to contact the company's Argentinian office to confirm if it is "the real thing." source
  12. This morning a lovely piece of video has surfaced showing the LG-made Nexus 5 from all angles, complete with an early version of KitKat called Key Lime Pie. This device appears to be working with KitKat, but as youll find in the menu pull-down the user attains right off the bat, hell be heading down to the version of the software released to Googles developers before the name change. Youll also find this devices software moving swiftly Buttery smoothness in full effect. A lot of the changes made in the latest builds of Android 4.4 KitKat do not appear here in this particular hands-on video. Youll find the icons too to be less-than finalized, looking a lot more like Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Its the hardware and the quickness with which the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor is working, therefor, that you may want to pay the most attention to most in this early Nexus 5 vision for the future. Up front, this device works with a lovely and massive display. On the back, youll find a large camera lens, likely there for optical image stabilization, and a complete lack of the word NEXUS. The early nature of this hardware build is emphasized by the fact that NOT FOR SALE is ingrained in the back of this smartphone. This is just a bit different from the Italian leak we saw earlier this week. Youll also find some odd locations of parts here and there. There is a single SIM card slot on the upper right-hand side, a couple of speaker grills with big holes at the bottom, and a microUSB port at the bottom as well, right up against the back panel cover for the battery within. Its not yet known if this device will allow the full removal of its battery or not. The right side of this device works with a simple power button right above the SIM card slot, and at least one microphone hole (up top) near the single standard headphone jack. This piece of hardware continues to appear to be based on the LG G2 in kind, with a slightly modified build to make it Googles own. Have a peek at the timeline below for more information on this upcoming release along with a whole lot more information on Android 4.4 KitKat as well!
  13. LG officially took the wraps off the G Flex smartphone with curved display in Korea. The Android handset will hit all three major carriers in its homeland next month, where it will square off against the Samsung Galaxy Round. Naturally, the main feature of the LG G Flex is its curved display. It is a massive 6” 720p OLED unit whose IMAX cinema-like horizontal curve in landscape mode will allow for an immersive experience when watching videos or playing video games. Another peculiar talent featured by the device is self-healing film on its back which can deal with minor scratches in a matter of minutes. LG compares the trick to the self-healing ability of the Wolverine character from the X-Men. The LG G Flex is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC with 2.26GHz quad-core CPU. The rest of the specs include 2GB of RAM, 32GB of built-in memory, microSD card slot, and 13MP camera. The smartphone packs full connectivity suite, including compatibility with the speedy LTE-A networks in Korea. It will boot Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean dressed in LG’s proprietary UI. The measures of the LG G Flex are 160.5 x 81.6 x 7.9/8.7mm (the thickness of the phone depends on the point of its curve), while its weight tips the scale at 177 grams. The handset is powered by a 3,500mAh battery which was recently under the spotlight in its own right. source: gsmarena
  14. South Korea’s LG Electronics Inc. will soon take the veils off a television model that will run on the “webOS” operating system, highlighting its ambition of creating a prominent operating system for so-called smart TVs. LG bought webOS, a mobile-device operating system, from Hewlett-Packard Co. earlier this year. The operating system was originally developed by Palm Inc. to power smartphones that would compete with the likes of Apple Inc.’s iPhones. H-P acquired Palm in 2010 and used webOS to power a tablet and its smartphone models. But the system failed to gain traction with the developers who write apps for devices and the devices didn’t sell well. Despite H-P’s struggles with the operating system, LG had said in February, when announcing the deal, that it was drawn to webOS because of its technology and because the company wanted its own operating system. LG now plans to showcase an Internet-connected television model powered by webOS in January at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, a person familiar with the matter told The Wall Street Journal. He didn’t elaborate on the features of the operating system, but said it would retain the “cards” system, or a stack of pop-ups that allows users to navigate multiple applications, originally used in the webOS mobile devices launched by H-P. The person didn’t comment on the company’s plans to market the webOS-powered TVs but said the operating system may be developed and later adopted for LG’s other consumer electronics, including smartphones. LG, the world’s second-largest TV market after Samsung Electronics Co., has been busy churning out new premium TV models this year to spark interest in a segment that accounts for nearly 40% of its revenue. The company is also set to showcase a whopping 105-inch curved-screen television at CES, with a similar model expected from Samsung. While the market for operating systems for mobile devices is dominated by Google Inc.’s Android, there is no such leader for smart TVs. Samsung has long been working on a new operating system, together with Intel Corp., dubbed the Tizen that is expected to power smartphones and TVs. Tizen’s expected debut next year will likely intensify the competition between the two Korean conglomerates. Source

    3 million LG G2's Sold

    There were two reports this month indicating that the South Korean company sold slightly over 2 million G2 units around the world since the handset’s initial announcement in August. However, according to Yonhap News, local analysts believe that LG sold more than 3 million G2s until now, with 900,000 units being shipped in South Korea only. An LG official was quoted as saying: "Although we cannot reveal specific data, the sales of (the LG G2) are gathering ground smoothly." Even so, having spent a lot of cash to market the G2 and other smartphones, LG is expected to post an operating loss for Q4 2013. It's not clear what the Google Nexus 5 (also manufactured by LG, and partially blamed for the weak sales of the G2) has done for the Korean company in terms of revenue. Google doesn't usually disclose sales numbers for its Nexus devices, so we may never find out how many Nexus 5 units LG had (and still has) to make. Regardless of how well it sells, the G2 remains one of this year's best high-end smartphones. I can only hope that LG will manage to do even better with its successor, expected to be called LG G3.

    5.5 inch LG Gx coming

    Get your container of Morton's ready because here is a story that you should take with a grain of salt. A published report out of Korea says that LG is about to offer its next high end "G" series phone, the LG Gx. This would apparently be the next flagship Android phone coming from the Korean based OEM and would replace the LG G2. Despite lower than expected sales, the latter has won the critics over with its high end specs, paper thin bezel and strong battery life. In fact, we recently listed the LG G2 as one of PhoneArena's Best Smartphones for 2013. But the LG Gx is supposedly coming to market with a 5.5 inch screen. That tops the 5.2 inches on the LG G2. Here is where this rumor might fall apart. Despite the quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor on the LG G2, the LG Gx is expected to carry a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 under the hood. In addition, back in June, LG said that all of it's "G" series phones would feature the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800. So far, LG has kept this promise. Assuming that it will actually be the Snapdragon 800 driving the model, the Gx will purportedly feature 2GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. A 13MP rear-facing camera is on board and the 3140mAh battery slightly tops the 3000mAh cell on the current flagship model. The phone will support LTE-A. There is no word when the LG Gx might see the light of day, if it ever does. Perhaps we will soon see this model getting its Bluetooth or Global Certification,or getting run through a benchmark test. What we're trying to say is that if the LG Gx is for real, we should start to see it pop up in the usual spots, like the FCC or seen in a render tweeted by evleaks. Source
  17. Got a Nexus 5? Then you must be reading this post If you’re a diehard Android fan, then the Nexus 5 definitely caught your eye. Although it’s only been publicly available for just shy of three weeks, the LG-manufactured Nexus 5 is already making its way to the top of holiday season shopping lists for consumers all over the globe. Those who are lucky enough to already own the device are seemingly full of praise for the latest in the Nexus smartphone range, but a number of concerns have been expressed, including the performance of the built-in camera as well as the tragically low speaker volume on the device. Google themselves will undoubtedly be investigating the rather lethargic performance of the camera and will more than likely issue a fix in the form of an Android 4.4 KitKat update in due course. It’s not exactly ideal, but a slow or lagging camera is something that a lot of us can make do with in the short-term. What is potentially more service affecting for Nexus 5 users is the extremely low speaker volume that can cause owners to entirely miss incoming calls or leave text messages unread due to not actually hearing the notification. This annoying issue is currently only affecting certain batches of the Nexus 5 hardware, but thankfully, there is a fix – albeit one that requires some internal tinkering. In times of need the average Android user looks to the community for help. Thankfully a member of the XDA-Developers forums by the name of AdamOutler has performed his own internal autopsy of the Nexus 5 and found that the affected devices have a splattering of glue that obstructs the chamber ports of the internal speaker. The problem is probably serious enough to warrant an exchange or at least raise a ticket with Google. Alternatively, fixing it yourself is a warranty-voiding option thanks to the documented process that involves step-by-step instruction as well as listing all the necessary tools. If you have a screwdriver, a guitar pick and a needle, then you’re already 50% of the way to being able to get underway with this fix. Remember that this may indeed fix the issue, but it is essentially a home-based hardware modification. If anything goes wrong then it’s highly unlikely any replacement will be offered. Source
  18. Two separate images allegedly of the Nexus 10 (2013) were leaked this weekend on Reddit. One comes from a Telefonica employee said to be disgruntled with the company and unhappy with his job. That render shows a thinner bezel and what appears to be a front-facing speaker on the top of the slate. The image shows the tablet running the Google Experience launcher on Android 4.4. The second image shows that the device is made by LG. Samsung produces the current version of the tablet. According to this particular leak, the tablet has the model number of LG-V510. That model turned up on a Bluetooth certification document last month, and the initial thought was that it was for a Nexus 8. According to the Telefonica leak, the price of the Nexus 10 (2013) will be £299 ($482 USD). Most likely that is for the version of the slab with cellular connectivity. The leaks also offer us an idea of when the Nexus 10 (2013) will be released. That date is November 22 and this tablet will be the first one with the Nexus brand to offer a color choice as it will be available in black and white, according to the source, who adds that the Wi-Fi and cellular variants will launch at the same time. Source
  19. LG G Flex is one of its kind smartphone that comes with a truly flexible body, screen and even a curved battery. The folks at Android Authority have taken the shinning new device for a ride in their drop test to check out the durability of the smartphone. LG G Flex has a unique ability to self-heal bruises and minor scratches, but is that and its flexible body enough to survive a crash against the pavement? Well, let’s find out. As usual, the LG G Flex went down crashing against the pavement three times and you can check out the video below to know how the device performed. Source
  20. A report in Korean media made the rounds, shedding light on the development of LG’s previously rumored, in-house developed chipset dubbed Odin. The SoC will reportedly come in two different versions – one with quad-core CPU, and another with an octa-core setup. The quad-core version of the chipset will allegedly pack an ARM Mali-T604 GPU. The octa-core one on the other hand, is said to sport ARM’s latest Mali-T760 GPU. The quad-core configuration of the Odin chipset will reportedly find home in LG’s lineup of smart TV’s, while the octa-core setup will be featured in mobile devices. The Taiwanese chip maker TSMC will be in charge of the chips’ production. There is no timeline on the chipset debut. The next generation of top-end LG mobile devices however, seems to be a safe bet. Source
  21. LG has recently trademarked “G3″ under the “mobile phones” category over at the USPTO, which confirms they’ll be sticking to the simple naming scheme for their biggest flagship series. The trademark itself doesn't tell us anything about the supposed device, though earlier rumors have given us enough to start dreaming. The device is said to sport a display with 2560 x 1440 resolution, though we’re not yet sure what size that’ll be coming in just yet. We’re also told to expect a 16 megapixel camera sensor, one which likely features optical image stabilization). One interesting swerve is that LG is reportedly going for a home grown processor instead of the usual Qualcomm-built affair. We’re not quite sure what to make of that just yet, but we’ll have to await more information about the supposed silicon before we make any assumptions. LG has been quite busy to start 2014, with the company said to be revealing the LG G Pro 2 anytime between now and Mobile World Congress later this month. They’ve already let loose a few official details about that particular handset, namely that it’ll be coming with a 13 megapixel camera that can shoot 4K video. Said camera will feature new “optical stabilization plus” technology that utilizes both software and hardware to create sharper photos. Unofficially, we’re told the G Pro 2 will have a 6-inch 1080p display with a Snapdragon 800 processor. We imagine LG will want to get through the G Pro 2 launch before focusing too much on anything else, but it’s clear they have a solid plan to launch a solid stable of great devices in the year to come. Source
  22. Just three days ahead of the official premiere, the LG G Pro 2 specs leaked via AnTuTu's database. It seems someone has put the two G Pro 2 units (Korea-bound F350L/F350K and the international D837 version) through the benchmark and you can check both the specs and the scores of the upcoming gadget.

  24. Google is expected to officially unveil the Nexus 5 in any day or moment form now. But one Canadian carrier has apparently grown tired of waiting. Wind Mobile today launched a pre-registration page for the upcoming Android flagship, describing it as "the smart, new phone made to capture the moments that matter." The page also reveals some key specifications for the latest Nexus handset. The internals listed here largely match up with what we've seen from previous leaks and FCC filings, so there's not much in the way of surprises. According to Wind, the Nexus 5 will feature a 4.95-inch 1080p display, a 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, and will be available in both 16GB and 32GB configurations. Bluetooth 4.0 is on board, and the spec sheet also confirms the device will support 802.11ac Wi-Fi – though it's erroneously listed as "nc." In truth there's little here that we weren't already expecting, but if you were looking for the Nexus 5's precise dimensions or weight (0.29 pounds), it's all included here. There is one curious design choice: according to Wind Mobile, LG has built the phone's power and volume buttons out of ceramic. We've seen the hardware plenty, but thankfully it shouldn't be long until Google gives everyone a firsthand look at what the Nexus 5 and Android 4.4 KitKat can do. source: theverge
