Are there just not enough wearable options in your life? Well, LG is going to be getting into the game come May 18th. The company's previously announced Lifeband Touch and corresponding Heart Rate Earphones will be on sale at that time to augment your person.
These devices were announced back at CES 2014, but now we've got a release date. The Lifeband Touch is mostly a fitness tracker with a small OLED screen, but it can also pipe in all your notifications and do a few other tricks.
I'll wager that you haven't been to an action movie in the last two years without a trailer blaring great farting blasts of brass at you over quick cuts and helicopter shots. If it works for Hollywood, perhaps LG hopes it will work for Seoul. The company is teasing its upcoming G3 flagship in no uncertain way with a new teaser, no doubt intended to whet the appetites of gadget hounds before the press event on May 27th.
The LG Volt, as a low cost phone destined to be sold with no contract, is shocking more in the static electricity way than, say, a bolt of lighting. But in the moment immediately following touching a doorknob after dragging your feet around too much on the carpet, who really cares? At $179.99, the Volt should hit a number of users with enough juice to keep them going starting today on Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile.
It can be easy to forget that the Moto 360 isn't the only Android Wear device coming this summer. Although, its probably the one we know the most about, especially now that LG has posted a teaser video for it.
The G Watch retains the traditional square shape of past smartwatches, but LG promises a sleek, waterproof metal design.There are a lot of fly-in close-ups of the G Watch, which look neat, but don't really tell us anything new about the device.
LG bailed on the tablet market after the amazing flop that was the G-Slate, but came back to the table last year with the surprisingly competitive G Pad 8.3. It became the first Google Play Experience tablet, and now LG is expanding its offerings with 7, 8, and 10.1-inch devices. Guess what we don't know about these devices... pretty much everything else.
We've steered clear of many of the rumored photos of the upcoming LG flagship refresh, if only because they weren't very good or very clear. But the latest spy shots from GSM Arena look like the real deal: an "LG G3" that brings the company's top-of-the-line phone back in a bigger and more evolved form. Oh, and it's gold. Very, very gold.
Compared to the international version of the G2, this phone looks a little bigger and less rounded, and the front façade has been given an overhaul with a case-colored insert beneath the glass screen.
People who bought the un-flattened LG G Flex on the un-carrier T-Mobile should be on the lookout for a chocolate dose of new features. The carrier has announced a software update is hitting devices starting today, bumping them up to Android 4.4 and software version D95920d.
LG is sending out invites to an event on Tuesday, May 27th in London with simultaneous events scheduled in New York and San Francisco. The invitation doesn't offer much information, simply stressing the letter 'G.' However, we're told there's a new flagship smartphone ready to drop.
Believe it or not, there are some people who bought the G Flex on Sprint for $300 on-contract. Those people will finally have something to be happy about today with the news that Sprint is rolling out KitKat to the curvy device starting today (4/28).
While we're all excited for Android Wear in general, Motorola's Moto 360 has really been the product on everyone's minds since the announcement. Of course, LG has its own thing a-brewin' with the G Watch – while not quite as exciting as the 360 (because round and other reasons), it's still shaping up to be an interesting offering for those who may prefer a square watch face. Today, the company has launched a teaser site of sorts for the G Watch, which reveals some info that we didn't know about it before.
