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...]
Serial technology scooper Evleaks has posted a set of screenshots that purportedly show a selection of widgets for use with the forthcoming LG G3 smartphone’s Quick Window cover. These covers allow you to see the time, caller ID, text messages, notifications and other things while your phone’s flip cover is closed, and have been well-received by the public. Samsung called their version of the feature S-View covers when it debuted on the Galaxy S4 last year, and while LG will tell you it actually had the feature first on an obscure older phone, its Quick Window cases made their first[Read More...]
What’s a new week without a new leak of the LG G3? After showing off the LG G3 in a multi-angle render in ‘Titanium’ last week. Over the weekend @EvLeaks showed off the White and Gold model of the upcoming phone in the same multi-angle style render : The new leak doesn’t add anything to the existing information we have, or at least think we have on the phone, but it does look good. We’re just over a week away from the May 27th announcement, we’ll see more when it goes live.
What’s a brand new day, without starting it off with some LG G3 news? That seems to be the flavour of the month really, but with the anticipation rising for LG’s upcoming flagship, can you blame us? Today we see the same renders we saw yesterday, but with a lockscreen overlaid on the screen, we also get a look at the new LG Skin, albeit in landscape orientation and there’s that rumour of laser guided photos again. First up, you saw these photos yesterday, but here they are again, but this time with the lockscreen from LG’s user interface added[Read More...]
Welcome to episode 112 of the Ausdroid podcast! This week we took a look at Motorola’s new phones (announced just hours before the show), and some of LG’s recent teases of their upcoming products. Hosted by Jason Murray, with Scott Plowman and Dan Tyson.

The announcement of three new LG tablets on Monday caught many off guard and the initial announcement was fairly light on hardware details for any of the tablets in the new G Pad lineup. But it appears that the 7″ G Pad has dropped past AnTuTu benchmarks to check out how it fares against the competition, and in the process revealing what’s under the hood. As you can see, the G Pad 7 will come with – obviously – a 7″ 1280×800 resolution display. Under the hood, the tablet will run a 1.2GHz Quad-Core Snapdragon 400 processor with 1GB of[Read More...]
The build-up to the release of the LG G3 has seen many leaks, and now some beautifully shot press renders for the phone have been leaked to PhoneArena, showing off the phone in Gold, Black and White. The shots show the phone with what appears to be a brushed metal rear cover, with gently sloping curved corners. The now-famous rear mounted keys are shown up close and in gorgeous detail. Either side of those rear mounted controls are the dual-LED flash, and what we believe is the IR Blaster. The front of the phone, shows slim bezels on either side[Read More...]
With both Samsung and HTC’s flagships already out there in the market place with mixed success it is hard for an unreleased phone to gain traction starting so far behind. LG seem to be keeping their 2014 flagship present at the front of everyone’s newsfeeds through carefully orchestrated leaks and teasers. It seems that every few days a new LG G3 tidbit is leaked. Sometimes official, often not. Here at Ausdroid we have covered leaks regarding the LG G3 no less than 7 times in the past month. Today, while everyone is focused on Motorola and their London announcement LG[Read More...]
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. Today, they have released a promo video for the watch which shows a wireframe heavy look at the watch, which talks up the design, featuring the sleekness and highliting the metal body which they claim gives it a ‘timeless look’. Features such as the waterproof nature of the watch is mentioned and we’re reminded that the[Read More...]
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...]
Some of the leaked specs for the LG G3 which were reported by Ausdroid back in April, have now been officially confirmed, by LG themselves. LG have now come clean confirming that the 5.5 inch QHD LCD display will indeed be incorporated in their flagship phone which is expected to be launched on May 27th. In their press release announcing that their 5.5″ QHD displays, originally announced back in August 2013, will be entering mass production, they advised that : The new Quad HD LCD panel will be unveiled with the forthcoming LG’s flagship smartphone to be launched in the first half[Read More...]
