A new leaked photo of the G Watch has confirmed some of the rumoured specs, as well as revealing[Read More...]

LG executive says the company’s not making the Nexus 6 – sound familiar?

LG executive says the company’s not making the Nexus 6 – sound familiar?

According to an interview with Netherlands-based Draad-Breuk, LG‘s Global Communications Director Ken Hong says his company is not making the rumoured (and anticipated) Nexus 6.

Hong’s comments also imply that LG might not be too upset at the situation, stating that Nexus manufacturers earn credibility but don’t necessarily make a lot of money out of the deal. It’s all a bit secondhand, you see – Google Translate hasn’t done[Read More...]
