Three new G Pad tablets are on the way from LG

Three new G Pad tablets are on the way from LG

LG today unveiled a new series of three G Pad tablets, with 7.0- 8.0- and 10.1-inch sizes, due to be unveiled at the MedPi European tradeshow from May 13-16. The new tablets are a result of customer feedback – LG says their customers have told them they want a wider range of devices with “sizeable screens” that don’t compromise on portability. Sounds like a series of lightweight tablets with high quality screens to us, so let’s see if they can deliver. Details are scarce at the moment. Short of the two pictures attached to this post, we can only glean[Read More...]

The LG G Watch is the second Android Wear product on the horizon, which is due to launch in the coming months. LG has been slowly releasing more and more details on the watch since it was announced, with details getting clearer each time.

LG G3 leaks in Gold with added rumour of laser guided photos

LG G3 leaks in Gold with added rumour of laser guided photos

The G3 in Gold is nothing new, we first saw the rumour along with gold coloured retail packaging for the phone mid-last month. Overnight, GSMArena manged to get hold of some – admittedly blurry – pictures of the actual phone in Gold, and their tipster has added some information on what we’ve up to now thought was an IR blaster on the rear of the phone. The port which we’ve been assuming was the IR port, which appeared on the rear of the LG G Flex, is apparently a ‘laser’ which will help with taking night shots. This laser is[Read More...]

LG G3 could come with metallic back and removeable back

LG G3 could come with metallic back and removeable back

We’re seeing more and more of the LG G3, we saw black and white renders of the phone yesterday in what appeared to be a plastic material, but according to @evleaks plastic may not be the only material the G3 could be available in. The G3 could also be arriving with a finish that @evleaks describes as a ‘fingerprint-magnet no more’. The picture we see appears to be a brushed metal material, similar to the HTC One (M8). But looks could be deceiving, the rear of the LG G Flex, had a similar look and was a ‘self-healing’ coating, which[Read More...]

LG G3 makes an [alleged] appearance

LG G3 makes an [alleged] appearance

LG’s G3 (the obvious follow-on from it’s Optimus G and G2) has made another guest appearance, this time over at @evleaks’ Twitter page. You can see the image Evan posted above, and while it’s clearly a render, it’s certainly not too shabby looking. The G3 has already had a few leaks now — just take a peek back over the LG G3 archive to see the rest. We should see a launch towards the end of this month, but for those who are anxious to see the G3, here’s what we’re speculating on in terms of specs. GSMArena have confirmed with[Read More...]

LG G3 pic leaks again in a clearer picture which clarifies specs

The LG G3 ship is leaking, fast. With an expected May 27th launch coming up, both the specs and phone are appearing on the internet more and more. We saw a heavily filtered version of this photo only days ago, now we get a clear look at the phone and the spec list that was written beneath it. GSMArena have confirmed with a source within LG that the G3 will come with a 5.5″ QHD (2560×1440) display, giving the phone a pixel density of 534ppi. While the phone will of course be larger than it’s previous version, it will be[Read More...]

LG G3 appears in new leaked photos

LG G3 appears in new leaked photos

The leadup to the LG G3 launch has been leaky and it’s getting leakier. A couple of new photos have just appeared on Korean site Seeko, which show off both the front and back of the phone. The phone looks fantastic, with what appears to be a one piece poly-carbonate back with the microUSB port and earphone jack mounted in the bottom, there’s a speaker embedded in the rear towards the bottom and those rear mounted controls are sitting right in the centre up the top. Nothing about the rear mounted controls has changed since EvLeaks released a close-up of[Read More...]

LG announces Q1 2014 results and announces the G3 will be coming in Q2

LG announces Q1 2014 results and announces the G3 will be coming in Q2

LG announced their Q1 2014 financial results overnight and from the looks of things they’ve had a fairly successful quarter. From our perspective, we’re interested in the results from the mobile division, known to LG as ‘The LG Mobile Communications Company’. They’ve shared some pretty decent numbers, showing that Smartphone adoption is increasing as are LTE phone sales: USD 3.19 billion in Revenue – a 6% increase year over year. 75% of their phones sold were smartphones. 12.3 million smartphones in the first quarter. 5 million were LTE smartphones – the most ever in a single quarter. Now, importantly LG[Read More...]

LG G3 caught on camera from behind showing off re-designed volume and power keys

LG G3 caught on camera from behind showing off re-designed volume and power keys

The LG G3 is coming, and if the frequency of leaks is anything to judge, it’s coming soon. Overnight GSMArena has shown off a picture of the rear of the LG G3, showing off the now familiar rear-mounted volume and power key setup but with a new design. As you can see the phone is resting on a notepad full of what appears to be specs, leading to the conclusion that this could very well be an orchestrated leak. The specs mention 16GB/32GB options for storage and what appears to be 3GB of RAM, but the handwriting is a little[Read More...]
