Right on the heels of today’s launch of the LG G3, we’re starting to details emerge about Australian availability of LG’s new hotness. We haven’t heard from LG directly yet (we’re told a statement is coming), but Telstra is first out of the gate with an announcement. We’ll update this post as we hear back from other carriers. Telstra The carrier advised in a blog post on their Exchange site that the phone will be available in stores from August 2014, but that’s all the specifics you’re getting so far – pricing and pre-sale dates will be announced in the[Read More...]

LG has this morning in an event, streamed live to the world, announced their latest flagship, the LG G3. The phone has of course made an appearance in so many leaks over the last few weeks that there wasn’t much to find out about the new phone, but there were a few bits and pieces that LG had up their sleeve. The LG G3 was officially introduced by Dr Ramchan Woo, head of LG’s Smartphone division. He spoke briefly on how the LG G3 has been designed with the focus on ‘simple’. Hardware wise, the LG G3 will have :[Read More...]
It seems the cat is out of the bag with respect to the LG G3, although I’m not sure anyone was trying very hard to keep it in. We have seen nearly every possible detail leak. Earlier today we saw it arrive 24 hours early on the Netherlands LG web page. The only thing left that people are speculating about is when it will be available to purchase. Now it seems they may not be waiting very long. A blog site in Italy has found a photo showing what seems to be a pallet full of LG boxes and on[Read More...]
We’re less than 24 hours from the official launch of the LG G3, but it appears that LG in the Netherlands has decided to not wait to put the details on their latest flagship up on their site. The Dutch site, which is still up at this stage, has leaked renders of the phone in the three release colours: Metallic Black, Silk White and Gold Shine as well as listing the full specs of the phone. The model headed for the Netherlands, is the LG-D855 and has some slightly different specs to what we’ve seen posted in the lead-up to[Read More...]
Yes, the title is a bit of tongue in cheek but with how the 2014 flagship from LG is promising it is not unwanted. As I reported just three days ago nearly every single thing about this beast has been leaked by both unofficial and official channels. Since then we have posted two further stories about LG leaks, because, well, we love it. It hits all the right buttons as far as we are concerned (well, Dan and myself anyway). This evening the LG G3 has hit the news again, once by LGs own hand and once by a leaker[Read More...]
The excitement for the launch of the LG G3 is palpable, we’ve just about seen everything about the phone and each successive leak just stirs up more excitement for the launch event scheduled for Wednesday morning. Now, the hype steps up with a dummy unit arriving in-store in Korea. The dummy phone, which if it’s in Korea is probably the LG-F400S/K/L model destined for the LG home market, but appears to be cosmetically similar to the LG-D85X model that is set to launch in western markets. The dummy shows off the circular clock widget which will be visible on the[Read More...]
With the 27th of May, and the announcement of the LG G3, fast approaching LG are really stepping up the hype factory around their 2014 flagship. Earlier today EvLeaks received a few pictures taken by Mr Blurrycam of the screen of a developer edition of the G3. Now LG themselves have officially released short teaser videos to YouTube. The three videos are titled Camera, Design and Display and are mostly fairly obscure, artistic references to each of these. The Design video leave little to the imagination of the G3, showing it in all of its glory. Mind you at this[Read More...]
There is less than a week until the 2014 flagship from LG will be announced, and it seems that there isn’t much left to surprise us with. We have seen specs leak, screenshots leak, press renders leak, the protective case leak and just the other day specs leaked again, this time in more detail. Today noted leaker EvLeaks has produced images of a “lunchboxed” developer version of the LG G3. The images show that the device will be running Android KitKat 4.4.2, which is to be expected if a company wants to be taken seriously in 2014. This may change[Read More...]
When the leaks of the Quick Window icons came out the other day, the circular clocks and widgets pretty much ensured that we all knew that a Quick Window case with a circular window was coming. Well, it’s officially confirmed with LG releasing the LG G3 : Quick Circle™ Case video onto YouTube alongside a press release outlining some more details. As you can see it’s a pretty functional setup with the ring icons showing up to quickly access features such as camera, music controls and obviously time, as well as letting users send text messages or place calls more[Read More...]
The countdown is on and this time the leaks are coming from inside LG, or at least from a meeting where LG was showing off promotional material, presumably to prepare partners for the launch of the G3. The model shown off is the Korean variant – LG-F400S/K/L – which will most likely differ slightly from the LG-D850/851/855 models we’ve seen for international markets. The slides show a mix of specs and marketing material showing the features, a list of specs was shown off, which shows the phone will include a 5.5″ Quad HD IPS display which another slide further on[Read More...]
There’s been a little more activity from LG on the G3 in the leadup to the official announcement on the 27th of May. The UK arm of LG has launched a product page for the LG G3, on their UK website. The page itself is pretty sparse, including the simple picture of the countdown to the launch of the G3 and obviously the confirmation that the phone will be launched as the LG-D855 – at least in the Uk. Over in the US, the LG G3 has apparently popped up at the FCC in two variants with the corresponding LTE[Read More...]

Ahead of Google’s 2014 I/O Developer Conference, where Google is expected to show off more of its Android Wear platform, and where LG and Motorola are expected to launch their G Watch and Moto 360 respectively, Google has put the call out to developers to submit their Android Wear apps for feedback. Part of the invitation is to have really great apps shown off during the conference on Google Play. Have you created an app you'd like to get in the hands of #AndroidWear users? We'd like to see what you've built! https://t.co/9i7bw9VmhT — Android Developers (@AndroidDev) May 19, 2014[Read More...]
