In South Korea, there's a never-ending war between Samsung and LG for display superiority. The latest salvo fired comes from the latter, which announced an astonishing new smartphone IPS-LCD panel yesterday. The 5.5-inch prototype screen uses a WQHD resolution of 2560x1440 (seen elsewhere on 27-inch monitors). The density is 538 pixels per inch, the highest of any mobile screen to date.
And the density isn't the only record that this screen sets. Read More
It's apparently the season for signup pages at Verizon Wireless. After seeing the Moto X and HTC One pages go up earlier this week, now it's LG's turn in the spotlight. The LG G2 now has its very own place where you can input your email address to probably not receive the "latest information," but you can always hope.
The LG G2 on Verizon looks a bit different than the international G2 we were shown at the launch event. Read More
LG had hardly introduced its new G2 flagship when they mentioned that it would come to the "big four" American carriers, meaning AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, and Sprint. They're bringing the fight to Samsung in this carrier-driven market. T-Mobile has confirmed the statement in the LG event: there's already a basic website dedicated to the new 5.2-inch Android handset, complete with the compulsory information signup. There's currently no date or price for the phone on any carrier. Read More
Like with most other devices, there has been no shortage of leaks and rumors surrounding LG's latest flagship, the G2. But now, all the questions have been answered, rumors put to rest, and leaks are no longer necessary – LG just unveiled its newest powerhouse to the world.
Just as previous rumors suggested, the G2 is filled to the brim with high-end specs that almost immediately make this the cream of the Android crop:
- 5.2-inch 1080x1920 IPS display
- 2.26GHz Snapdragon 800
- 2GB RAM
- 16/32GB storage options
- 13MP rear shooter, 2.1MP front camera
- Rear-facing power button and volume control (directly below camera) – long-pressing launches QuickMemo and the camera
- Bottom-facing speakers
- 3,000mAh battery
- 138.5 x 70.9 x 8.9mm
- Android 4.2.2
The G2 has the largest display that still fits in the "one hand use" category – thanks to the thin 2.65mm side bezel, it manages to keep the width to a mere 2.7 inches. Read More
That noted leaker of phones, @evleaks has just posted what appears to be the LG G2 in all its glory. We've seen the device show up a number of times before, but this press shot is the first time the final product has been so clearly visible.
The device matches previous leaks quite well with the strange up and down arrows on the rear of the device, and a very minimal front bezel. Read More
It's a good time to be in the market for an LG Optimus G Pro from AT&T. Last week, the network dropped the off-contract price of the powerful handset down from $549.99 to $439.99. Now Amazon has bested that price by over $20. For just $414.96, this handset can be yours to use free of the confines of a two-year contract. I may not be in the majority with this opinion, but I find it's the only way to live. Read More
Almost all the GSM phones released in North America have a single SIM card, but there are a lot of areas of the world where having a dual-SIM device is a big advantage. These devices can utilize two networks at the same time for calls, data, and SMS. For when two just isn't enough, LG is going to soon offer phones with three SIM slots.
LG is teaming up with MediTek to create the new triple-SIM devices, which will almost certainly never arrive in the US. Read More
Android 4.3 was officially unveiled and released today to the Android Open Source Project. In a surprisingly timely fashion, Google also released both the factory images and OTAs to the Nexus 4, 7, 10, and the Galaxy Nexus.
Looking for more information on Android 4.3? Here you go:
Sometimes we're completely blown away by what carriers have coming down the pike. This is not one of those times.
Looks like Verizon is once again teaming up with LG for a low-end device, which @evleaks claims will be called the Enact, and has a model number of VS890. There is literally nothing remarkable about this phone, save for the fact that LG decided to give the Gingerbread days a nod and resurrect the physical menu button:
Looky thar! Read More
If you've got a hankering for a beefy smartphone rocking a new Snapdragon 600, consider the AT&T Optimus G Pro. Ah, but the contract, you say. Well, AT&T has just dropped the off-contract price to $439.99. It used to be $549.99. All the contract deals have remained the same, but eBay doesn't even sell the G Pro as cheaply as AT&T does now.
This is the AT&T-branded Optimus, remember. That means some AT&T junk on the device. Read More
