Love it or hate it, the original LG G Flex sure did create some buzz. The second version of the phone seems to be an improvement in just about every way, but LG doesn't seem to be content with flagship-style offerings. Three UK just announced that it will offer the LG Spirit 4G starting in June. This decidedly mid-range device also has a curved screen, and... well, that's about the only interesting thing aside from Lollipop software at launch.
Tablets with LTE data tend to be quite a bit more expensive than their WiFi siblings, but Sprint is launching an LG slate called the LG G Pad F 7.0 with modest specs that sells for the low price of $240 or $10 per month for 24 months. It's not going to be blazing fast, but it might get the job done.
If the LG Watch Urbane just isn't fancy enough for you, the manufacturer is going to up the stakes. LG just announced the Watch Urbane LTE on its home turf of South Korea, ostensibly to have something to compete with Samsung's Gear S. The Watch Urbane LTE includes the capability to make voice calls, essentially turning it into a wrist-mounted cell phone. It would be the first Android Wear device with stand-alone voice capability...
After its introduction at CES, the curvtastic LG G Flex 2 is almost ready for primetime. The phone has been available for pre-order on Sprint in the US for a few days with a free Quick Circle case, but its global rollout is about to commence. It will first be offered on "major carriers in the United States, Hong Kong, Singapore, France, Germany, and the U.K," according to an LG Press Release, followed by key markets in North and South America, Europe, and Asia.
You have seen the LG Watch Urbane in promo pictures along with its announcement, but you were probably still wondering if the watch really looks that good from all angles. Well, it does. Exhibit A:
Sexy! With the G Watch R, LG pulled off a watch that looks sporty and cool — mine always turns heads because people never realize it's a smartwatch until it starts buzzing and I interact with the screen. But the Urbane is taking it to another level of class and sophistication.
When LG announces mid-range phones, it does not play around. The Korean OEM has dropped four new devices today with a wide range of specifications and familiar design. None of these phones will be a replacement for the LG G3, but they will launch with Android 5.0 Lollipop.
Sprint has announced that it will begin offering the LG G Flex 2 on March 13th. People with their hearts set on this curved poster child will be able to place a pre-order starting tomorrow, February 20th. The phone will go for twenty-four payments of $12 or $504 altogether, and it will be available in Platinum Silver or Volcano Red (a Sprint exclusive).
The G Flex 2 isn't quite the sequel to last year's model that you would expect.
