808s & Snapdragon Heartbreak: LG's G4 May Forego The 810 Drama In Favor Of More Conservative Chipset

We're not in the habit of posting pre-release benchmark results here at Android Police, because they're easy to fake. Really, really easy. But, they also turn out to be legitimate in many cases, because manufacturers and testers do use benchmarking applications on unreleased devices, and perhaps even do so intentionally to drive up hype in the enthusiast community before a launch. Still, the risk of counterfeitery means we generally aren't going to post such things unless we have corroborating evidence, and today, we do - sort of.

A GFXBench result for a device codenamed F500x, AKA the G4, appeared recently with an interesting specification sheet attached - one that did not include a Snapdragon 810.

LG G2 On Verizon Wireless Receives OTA Update With Android Lollipop

The benefit of buying a flagship, aside from solid specs, is the likelihood of continuing to receive updates after the predecessor has launched. Carriers and manufacturers generally try to keep you current just long enough to make it through a two-year contract without complaining. So now we're seeing the year and a half old LG G2 on Verizon Wireless updated to Android 5.0.

LG-G2-Lollipop-Verizon

Software version VS98039A brings in those changes that come with Android Lollipop, which we've covered in great detail. Many of these tweaks look different when combined with LG's alterations, but everything still remains pretty flat and colorful.

[Deal Alert] Refurbished LG G Pad 7.0 LTE Tablet Currently Just $89 On Woot

Let's get something out of the way right from the start. The LG G Pad 7.0 isn't a particularly exciting piece of hardware. It's powered by a Snapdragon 400 1.2GHz quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM. That 7-inch display only provides 1280 by 800 pixels. On the software front, you're looking at Android 4.4.

But if you turn your eyes towards Woot, you will see that the site is offering a refurbished LG G Pad 7.0 LTE for only $89.99. That's a pretty good price for an LTE-equipped tablet. Paired with the right data plan, it's a decent way to keep the little ones in the backseat occupied during long trips (and perhaps short ones, too).

Supposed Early LG G4 Press Render Leaks On Twitter

The LG G3 was heavily leaked before its announcement, and so was the G2 before that. So long-time Android enthusiasts probably won't be too surprised to see that a G4 leak is already hitting Twitter.

This one comes from @OnLeaks, an account created by the guy who runs Nowhereelse.fr, a French blog that posted what ended up being an accurate image of the HTC One M9. The current leak shows the back of what is allegedly an early version of the G4.

@OnLeaks says the device comes in at 148.9 x 76.5 x 9.9mm and that it will have a removable back.

Three UK Shows Off The LG Spirit 4G, Bringing The Company's Curved Design To The Mid-Range Segment

Love it or hate it, the original LG G Flex sure did create some buzz. The second version of the phone appears 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 carry 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.

Before you get too excited, Three's promotional video (the sole source of information on the phone so far) doesn't mention flexibility at all, so this phone probably won't bend or heal like the G Flex series.
