LG G3 to announced on May 27th in a world-wide launch across six cities

After announcing that the G3 would help their financial results for Quarter 2, LG has apparently begun sending out press invites for the launch of their 2014 superphone. The launch will take place in six cities, across two days but unfortunately not in Australia. The press events are scheduled to take place in San Francisco, New York, and London on the 27th with events scheduled for the 28th in Seoul, Singapore, and Istanbul. The invite doesn’t mention the G3 specifically, but the capitalised G in the invite above and the mention of a launch in their financial report yesterday, means[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...]

The LG G3 is getting leaky – UI and more specs leaked

The LG G3 is getting leaky – UI and more specs leaked

The upcoming, unannounced LG G3 is getting leakier by the day. There’s been two leaks regarding the LG G3 overnight, the first of which shows off the new LG UI and the second is from a User Agent Profile (UAProf) for a version of the LG G3 destined for US Carrier Sprint. The Leaked UI screenshots shows off a very welcome change to what has been described as a very ‘cartoony’ looking interface. The new design direction that LG appears to have adopted with the LG G3 is flatter and very much in line with where software UI design has[Read More...]

LG Shows Off Their Smartwatch in Champagne Gold

LG Shows Off Their Smartwatch in Champagne Gold

When Google launched Android Wear, their initial launch partners were Motorola – who managed to corner most of the press with their circular Moto 360 – and LG, who showed off a not very visible ‘G Watch’ in a render. LG has since been playing catch-up. We got a slightly better look at the watch thanks to their Facebook page and Pocket-Lint got an even closer look last month and today via their Facebook page LG have shown off the LG/Google designed smartwatch, based on Google Now information, in a champagne white colour. Apparently due to arrive in the second[Read More...]

LG G3 coming in Gold with high res screen

LG G3 coming in Gold with high res screen

Handsets from LG in their high end G line of phones specifically have become highly desirable over the last two years, and the LG G3 is looking set to follow this trend, not only from a design standpoint but from rumours surrounding the hardware that LG will be including, namely a high resolution 2560 x 1440 screen. The rumours of the high resolution screen have been around for a while, and were seemingly confirmed earlier this week in a UserAgent Profile for a Sprint handset with the model# LS990. With LG currently manufacturing a 5.5″ 2560 x 1440 resolution screen,[Read More...]
