Low-End LG Enact Tipped For Verizon, Sports Physical Buttons (Including Menu) And Meh Specs

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!

According to recent filings at the FCC, BT SIG, and Wi-fi Alliance, we essentially know that this little guy is packing Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi b/g/n; similarly, a listing over on GFXBench shows it's running Android 4.1.2, a 800x480 display resolution (*cringe*), a 1.2GHz CPU, and Adreno 305 GPU – the latter two indicate that it's either an S4 Plus or Snapdragon 400 processor.

[Deal Alert] AT&T Drops LG Optimus G Pro To Just $439.99 Contract-Free – $110 Off The Old Price

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. On the upside, you get 32GB of storage, 2GB of RAM, a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 ARM chip, a 5.5-inch 1080p LCD, and LTE support.

LG And Virgin Announce The Optimus F3, Now Available For $179.99

The LG Optimus F3 is available today for $179.99 off-contract with Virgin Mobile. The phone comes with Android 4.1.2, a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, and a commendable 2,460mAh battery. The 4G LTE-capable handset will reportedly last long enough to sustain a sixteen hour conversation, though such battery life might require more work on your end when throwing out the dead battery excuse to avoid people.

The LG Optimus F3 has a 4-inch screen shielded with Gorilla Glass 2, a 5MP camera in the back, and your typical inferior camera on the front. It's a decent phone, especially for the price.

LG Electronics and Virgin Mobile USA announced that the LG Optimus F3 smartphone is available today from Virgin Mobile for $179.99 when purchased with a Beyond Talk™ monthly no-contract plan which offers unlimited data and messaging  starting at $35 per month .

How To: Update The Nexus 4 To Android 4.3 (JWR66N) From The Leaked System Dump

Several hours ago, an Android 4.3 system dump was leaked for the Nexus 4. As it turns out, even though the bootloader and the radios weren't included, the system dump is totally bootable. I'm running it right now. If you want to try it out, it's easy to do so, but be prepared to have your bootloader unlocked and flash some zips via a custom recovery. If you don't know what any of this means, I suggest you get familiarized with Android flashing first.

The Story (read this first)

  1. The dump was leaked as a TWRP (Team Win Recovery Project) backup.

Download: Android 4.3 For Google Nexus 4 Leaks (JWR66N) - Here's The System Dump [Updated]

For the past few hours, I've been observing a curious case of Jeff Williams on Google+. Jeff posted a screenshot of what he claimed was a Nexus 4 he bought from a Googler... with a build of Android 4.3 on it. The same build, JWR66N, that we saw leaked earlier on a Galaxy S4 GPE by SamMobile.

In disbelief, some have called him a hoaxer, but a number of resourceful folks decided to get Jeff on IRC (channel #Android43 on freenode) and worked with him for hours, trying over and over to get the magical system dump that would prove Jeff's story to be real.

LG Ditches 'Optimus' For 'G Premium Brand' – Next Flagship To Be Officially Called G2

In a short press release sent out this evening, LG announced that it would be ditching the word (is it a word?) "Optimus" from its premium branding, opting to keep only the "G".

Furthermore, the release reaffirms the name of the company's upcoming flagship – G2.

The release contained one other tidbit – going forward, "LG's premium 4:3 display smartphones will be rebranded as simply 'Vu'." Yes, there will be at least one more Vu, if not more.

In case you were worried, LG assures customers that current smartphones will not be renamed as a result of the new branding effort.

[Lets Try This Again] T-Mobile Updates Optimus L9 To Android 4.1.2 With Firmware P76920f

Sometimes making the jump to the next version of Android introduces more cons than pros. This reality caused T-Mobile to pause and take a step back the last time it started to roll out Jelly Bean to the LG Optimus L9. Users complained of excessive battery drain and difficulty receiving calls, among other things. It's been a couple of months since that debacle, and now the carrier is ready to try again.

L9Update

The update is up to 355.7MB in size depending on which version you're currently running. In addition to Jelly Bean, the update brings in the usual assortment of unspecified security enhancements.

Dan Rosenberg's Loki GS4 Bootloader Bypass Tool Now Supports LG Devices Including The Optimus G Pro

Locked bootloaders can be a real drag, but there's usually some way around it. In the case of the Verizon and AT&T Galaxy S4, Dan Rosenberg released the Loki tool to bypass the locked bootloader and execute custom kernels. This developer-focused tool has been a hit with its intended audience, and now it has added support for LG devices.

Loki can be obtained from GitHub with all the necessary code and documentation. In addition to the Samsung Galaxy S4, the app can now bypass locked bootloaders on the LG Optimus G Pro, LG Lucid 2, LG Motion, and LG Spirit. The process should be roughly the same for the LG phones as it is with the GS4.

LG Announces AT&T Optimus G Pro "Value Pack" OTA Update - Smart Video Pausing, Dual Camera Mode, And More

While LG originally announced the Optimus G Pro "Value Pack" back in March, at the time it was in reference to the Korean version of the device. The G Pro has since been released on AT&T Value Packless, but it appears that's finally changing: LG has officially announced that the VP upgrade will be hitting AT&T G Pro handsets very soon. While it sadly does not include an Android version bump, it does add a host of new features. Here they are:

  • Smart Video intelligently recognizes the position of a user's eyes, automatically pausing the video when the user looks away and then restarting it once they resume active viewing. 
  • Dual Camera, an extension of the Dual Recording feature, lets users simultaneously capture photos of the subject and the shooter using both the front and back cameras for a picture-in-picture composition, so both sides of an experience are snapped and saved. 
  • Pause & Resume Recording allows user to pause video in record mode and then restart the recording to create one continuous video file.

LG Optimus G2 Shows Up In Clearest Photos Yet, And It Has Bottom-Firing Speakers? [Update: Video]

In what is bound to be the first of many more multi-photo leaks over the next month, Engadget has gotten its hands on an extensive set of snaps of the upcoming LG Optimus G2. Behold the imagery below, and read on for our take. The G2 has been previously leaked on multiple occasions, most recently in some video screencaps depicting LG's next flagship. LG also hasn't been shy on acknowledging the device's existence, teasing its Snapdragon 800 processor and August 7th launch event.

Update: A new YouTube account called 4Leakz just posted a one-minute Optimus G2 video:

I have to say, the G2 is decidedly generic-looking in these photos, though some people may prefer the highly subdued styling going on here.
