Asian mobile insiders say LG’s G3 will give Samsung a run for its money

Asian mobile insiders say LG’s G3 will give Samsung a run for its money
News from CNET:

Insiders from smart cities in Asia tell CNET they see a serious challenger to Samsung in LG’s new flagship.

The LG G3 could be a game changer. Nate Ralph/CNET

Singapore and Hong Kong are ideal places to do canary tests on mobile phones. Both countries sell mobile phones unlocked, and have huge mobile penetration rates upwards of 150 percent — that’s at least 1.5 phones per resident.

Throw in smartphone penetration rates upwards of 87 percent for both countries, fast 4G networks and a highly mobile-centric culture which can afford pretty much any phone they desire — whatever goes on in the Singapore and Hong Kong mob…………… continues on CNET

How does LG’s supercharged G3 stack up against the best Android phones?
News from The Verge:

With LG’s official launch of the G3, all major Android manufacturers have now unveiled their flagship smartphones for 2014. HTC has the One M8, and Samsung is of course garnering the most buzz (and sales) with its Galaxy S5. In many ways, it’s a battle reminiscent of the one we saw last year when the G2, original One, and Galaxy S4 squared off. Samsung destroyed its rivals in that round — assuming you still believe the company has legitimate foes. But LG is hoping to establish its place in the smartphone race by leaping ahead on hardware specs instead of matching Samsung stride for stride as it did last year. The G3 has a gorgeous, super high-resolution display and a camera that focuses with lasers. Are these factors and others enough to help its cause and give the new flagship a chance? Let’s take a look.

Meet the G3, LG’s new flagship Android phone

Meet the G3, LG’s new flagship Android phone
News from The Week Magazine:

L

G’s new flagship Android phone, the G3, has been a poorly kept secret. Not only was a lot of information known ahead of its official debut, but screen shots of the actual device also popped up well in advance.

However, it remained to be seen how all its impressive features would fit together, and how the device would feel as a whole. Yesterday, LG finally took the wraps off the G3 and fleshed out the remaining details.

At a San Francisco live-stream of the London event, I was able to get some hands-on time with the new device and see the features in action. The point the company kept hammering home was that it is giving users high-end technology without the complexity. Each feature was mentioned in the context of simplicity and ease of use. While some features are not as simple as advertised, the effort is certainly there.

The highest-resolution screen in the U.S.
One of the headline features is the G3′s super-high-resolution screen. With 2560 x 1440 lines of resolution and 538 pixels per inch, the display is absolutely stunning. It will be the first 2k, or QuadHD, display in the United States when the device launches sometime this summer. Having such a densely packed screen on a mobile device means images pop and animation is extremely…………… continues on The Week Magazine

The first amazing LG phone (at least for me)
News from CNET:

For one CNET editor, the long road that led to LG’s new and promising G3 dates back almost 10 years ago to the still-excellent LG EnV.

The original LG EnV: still one of the best messaging keyboards LG

LG’s new G3 shows that the company is continuing to step up its smartphone game. As a longtime cell phone reviewer, and someone who hates the thought of an Apple-Samsung duopoly, I’m glad to see that happen.

Yet, there’s another reason that I’m pleased. Though LG may have been a little slower to hone its flagship phone skills than some of its rivals — it really hit its smartphone stride in 2012 with the Nexus 4 and the Optimus G — Samsung’s crosstown rival has been producing blockbuster hand…………… continues on CNET

LG teases G3 phone; leaked specs hint at 5.5in screen
News from GMA News:

South Korean company LG has released a teaser video of its upcoming G3 flagship smartphone, days before its official unveiling on May 28.

But the teaser posted on YouTube merely hinted at the phone’s brushed metal case, and not much else:

“In the run-up to the launch, LG is releasing bits and pieces about the phone — presumably to head off the leaks that usually accompany the build-up to a new device — including the QuickCircle case, which has a porthole in the front to see what’s going on at a glance,” said tech site CNET.

On the other hand, specs leaked online indicated the G3 may feature a 5.5-inch screen and a powerful (for a smartphone) one-watt speaker.

GSMArena said it came across several slides detailing the G3, which it speculated could have come from someone who “sneaked in a camera” at an early preview event.

It said the G3 will sport a 5.5-inch QHD IPS screen and a…………… continues on GMA News

LG’s ‘QuickCircle’ G3 case opens a window into your phone

LG’s ‘QuickCircle’ G3 case opens a window into your phone
News from Engadget:

LG hasn’t officially revealed the G3 yet, but its new QuickCircle case gives you a pretty good idea of what the device can do. The QuickCircle, which the South Korean company just announced, features a circular cutout in front so you can access the UI’s lock screen, take pictures, listen to music and even make calls even if you don’t open up the case. It has other things going for it other than its tiny window, as well, such as Qi wireless charging standard compatibility and a Smart Lighting feature that emits a soft glow within the cutout whenever you get a call or a message. Next month, LG’s also releasing an SDK for the case, and if you’re lucky, someone out there has a brilliant idea just waiting to be made.

LG G3 Pictures And Specs Leak: It’s Utterly Gorgeous
News from Huffington Post UK:

We’ve known for a while that LG’s G3 flagship smartphone is on the way.

We didn’t know it would look this gorgeous.

This set of leaked press images have turned up Friday on EVLeaks and Phone Arena, and they show a phone which is frankly stunning, with three varieties of full metal devices (gold, grey and silver) and the G2′s trademark rear-button.

The phone has an exceptionally thin screen bezel and looks like an even sleeker version of the HTC One M8, minus the double camera and front-facing speakers.

It is thought the phone will feature a huge 5.5-inch QHD display with a 2560 x 1440-pixel resolution, a Snapdragon 801 (standard for the very top-end phones) and 3GB of RAM. All that remains is to see the software involved, the price and contract options, and then to run down to our nearest Dixon Warehouse PC Carphone store and buy one.

LG Uni8 With Windows Phone 8.1 Tipped in Leaked Press Image

LG Uni8 With Windows Phone 8.1 Tipped in Leaked Press Image
News from NDTV:

LG, which was one of first Windows Phone partners before stopping to produce smartphones for the platform in 2010, is reportedly once again making a Windows Phone device, this time running Windows Phone 8.1.

The famous tipster @evleaks on Monday tweeted a render image of the big-screen Windows Phone said to be dubbed LG Uni8.

While the tweet suggested that it is likely to be launched in 2014, the Engadget team on Tuesday reported that it has “received a denial from the folks over at LG, who have said that this isn’t a phone that we’re going to see released this year.” This would imply that LG has no Window Phone devices lined-up for 2014.

The alleged LG Uni8 may be the company’s first Windows Phone 8 device, and when launched, it will mark LG’s re-entry into the Windows Phone market that it left in 2010.

LG G3 spotted in the wild with new Quick View case
News from TrustedReviews:

The LG G3 has been spotted on the subway

The LG G3 leaks continue to emerge thick and fast, as the upcoming flagship phone is spotted out in the wild.

With the manufacturer having failed on many levels to keep its LG G2 follow-on secret, the forthcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 rival has now been snapped riding the subway in LG’s native Korea.

The shots, which look suspiciously staged, show a woman sporting the gold edition of the LG G3, with the handset sat within the recently teased new Quick View case with a circular preview window.

Although LG has already confirmed the phone’s name and teased elements of the handset’s specs sheet and design, the phone is not set to be formally unveiled until May 27.

Set to be showcased at a London-based launch event, the LG G3 will land with a 5.5-inch edge-to-edge display.

Is this LG’s first Windows Phone 8 device?

Is this LG’s first Windows Phone 8 device?
News from CNET:

Dubbed the Uni8, the device sports the familiar Windows Phone 8 interface, at least in this image provided by Evleaks.

Evleaks/Screenshot by Lance Whitney/CNET

LG could be getting into the Windows Phone 8 game, if a new image popping online turns out to be the real deal.

An image posted by oft-accurate tipster Evleaks shows an LG phone with the traditional Windows Phone screen. Dubbed the LG Uni8, the device could see the light of day this year, according to Evleaks’ tweet as it specifically lists 2014.

The Uni8 resembles a traditional Windows Phone handset with the tiled home screen and the familiar navigation keys at the bottom. But otherwise, the leak doesn’t reveal any specs or details about the device.

CNET contacted LG for comment and will update the story with any further information. In February of 2013, LG told CNET that it had no immediate plans to sell a Windows Phone 8 handset, citing a l…………… continues on CNET

LG G3 press renders leak to show phone in full glory
News from TrustedReviews:

Official looking LG G3 images have leaked, with the prematurely teased press renders showcasing the upcoming handset in all its high-end glory.

With the heavily rumoured, but currently unconfirmed LG G3 having been the subject of multiple leaks in recent weeks and months, the first official shots of the device have now popped up, once again showing the handset in a trio of lustrous hues.

Despite giving the clearest, most professional look at the handset yet, the press images offer no further insight into the device beyond what has already been seen.

Shown in black, silver and gold colour schemes, the LG G3 looks set to feature an expansive, edge-to-edge display and a slimline, brushed metal or metal effect body.

Sticking with a design principle introduced last year, the G3 has been shown with a smaller, more refined rear button configuration, with the phone’s power and volume keys sat beneath the integrated camera and dual-LED flash offering.

According to recent rumours, the LG G3 will boast a 5.5-inch QHD panel, with a stunning 2560 x 1440 pixel resolution.

LG attempts to distance Isai FL and G3 from one another
News from Phandroid.com:

It was only yesterday Japanese carrier KDDI officially announced the LG Isai FL. Carrying a 5.5-inch QHD display, ever since we first caught glimpse of the Isai a few weeks back we figured we were merely looking at a Japanese branded LG G3.

At the time, the LG Isai FL carried many of the same rumored specs as the LG G3, leading us (and many others) to believe the phone may have offer a sneak peek at what LG has in store for the upcoming LG G3 — namely, its incredibly small upper bezel area. Despite last year’s model being practically a mirror image of the G2 (see below image), it appears that may not be the case this year.
