New Nexus rumors claim that LG will make Google’s next smartphone

New Nexus rumors claim that LG will make Google’s next smartphone
News from PhoneDog:

After creating the Nexus 4 and Nexus 5 for Google, a new report claims that LG could challenge Samsung for the title of most prolific Nexus maker.

Chinese site eToday claims that Google engineers recently paid a visit to LG headquarters, research and development labs, and factories where things like optical image stabilization (OIS) and wireless charging modules are made. The reason for the visit from these Googlers? They were reportedly there as part of a project codenamed “N000,” which also goes by the working name “Nexus 7.” (Yes, they’d need a new name since we’ve already got two Nexus 7 tablets.)

LG and Google are tight, having worked on two Nexus phones, a Google Play edition tablet, and three Android Wear watches in the past. Because of that history, it’s certainly possible that Google could tap LG for another Nexus phone after giving the Life’s Good crew a year off. Google has shown that it’s…………… continues on PhoneDog

LG changed their mind, will launch the quirky LG AKA outside of South Korea …
News from Phandroid.com:

Originally designed exclusively for South Korea, LG has announced that they’ll soon be bringing their quirky AKA line to new markets, starting first in Hong Kong. The phones definitely have personality, something we never thought we’d say about a smartphone. Each LG AKA features a different character that peeks out from the top of their own accessories, showing off their own unique personas. There’s 4 characters total, which LG describes as:

  • Eggy (yellow) who falls frequently in love
  • Wooky (white) ever-so-impulsive
  • Soul (navy) music lover with a soft-heart
  • Yo-Yo (pink) who is always on a diet

It’s more than just cartoon eyes and cases, with the characters woven into the phone’s wallpapers, ringtones, and widgets. With soon to be global release of the device, LG has also added something they’re calling an “emotional UX element.” Essentially, users can further customize their AKA’s eyes with glasses or different eyebrows. They’ll even be including stickers and an “Art Toy” figurine which can be digitized by snapping a picture of it, then adding it to selfies or other photos taken by the phone.

Get your back pockets ready for a new curved phone experience. LG’s G Flex 2 curved screen smartphones are finally available from Sprint for a contract price of just $ 200.

Sprint will also offer the top-of-the-line smartphone in Platinum Silver and the exclusive “Volcano Red” color.

Although the incredibly bendy and self-healing phone (from minor scratches at least) already debuted in its homeland of South Korea last month, March 13 marked the phone’s launch on U.S. shores.

The phone is only available with Sprint at this time and the mobile carrier offers several options for the unique curved screen phone

First, you can opt to buy the phone outright for $ 504, plus taxes, without a contract.

If that sounds a bit too hefty for your budget, you can also opt for Sprint’s Easy Pay installment plan, which breaks down payments into 24 monthly drops of $ 21. Incidentally, that’s the

LG G4 looks set to be even bigger than we expected
News from TechRadar:

A new rumour about the upcoming LG G4 claims that it will come with a 5.6-inch screen, placing it firmly in the phablet category.

The new leak comes from the @OnLeaks twitter account, which is generally well regarded for its tips on smartphones that have yet to be released.

Although the LG G4 could see a big increase in screen real estate compared to the LG G3, another rumour suggests that LG will release an even bigger handset, possibly called the LG G4 Note, later this year with a 5.8-inch display and its own stylus.

4 brand new Android phones you might want this year instead of the Galaxy S6
News from BGR:

The Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9 may have stolen the show at MWC 2015, especially the Galaxy S6 edge version, but that doesn’t mean all smartphone buyers currently considering a new Android handset will go for a high-end device. Nor should they, since the S6 is ridiculously expensive and there will be plenty of cheaper Android devices launching soon, running Android 5.0 Lollipop right out of the box.

Is this our first look at the LG G4?
News from Phandroid.com:

Talk about the LG G4 at AndroidForums.com!

Every company falls victim to a leak or two ahead of their flagship devices’ official unveiling, and LG is no different. The LG G4 has escaped our grasps for far too long, but we might have just gotten our first look at the thing.

Surprise, surprise: it looks like almost every LG flagship device we’ve seen the past couple of years, rear button placement and all. The leak was provided by @onleaks, which is manned by one of the editors from credible French technology blog NowhereElse.Fr.

We’d say that’s pretty good reason to believe this leak will hold up, but if the HTC One M9 debacle taught us anything it’s that no one truly knows anything until the official goods are delivered. It’s…………… continues on Phandroid.com

Samsung Galaxy S6

2015 is turning out to be a good year for tech manufacturers and techies as new devices have been released to great fanfare at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada on January and at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona last week.

Two of the most anticipated devices are LG’s G Flex 2 and the Samsung Galaxy S6. The G Flex 2 made its debut at CES 2015, and many were impressed with its ability to bend and flex just like its predecessor, but the phone features a lot of improvements on the previous model.

Meanwhile, the Samsung Galaxy S6 launched at the 2015 MWC, and Samsung’s new flagship phone underwent a dramatic—and welcome—change in design and has amazing specs that could firmly place it on top of every best smartphone of the year lists.

Here, we compare the two handsets.

Design:
The LG G Flex 2 is lighter, thinner, and more flexible than its predecessor. Pushing down on the phone will cause it to flatten, but as soon as any weight or pressure is off the device, it springs back into its curved shape right away. The phone has a self-heali…………… continues on Christian Post

Galaxy S6, HTC One M9, and LG G Flex 2: MWC’s Flagship Phones
News from PC Magazine:

At Mobile World Congress this week, I’ve had the chance to spend a little time the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, the HTC One M9, and the LG G Flex 2 – the three currently phones vying to be the top of the Android phone market.

The Samsung and HTC phones were announced at the show, and while the LG one was announced at CES, it hasn’t shipped yet. All three are being marketed as “flagship” phones – the ones with the best screens, processors, build quality – and of course, the highest price tags. And while we’re seeing three great phones, each with its own great characteristics, together they prove the adage that you can’t please everyone: each has its own strengths and weaknesses.

The Galaxy S6 has received a lot of attention for the big change in design from the previous Galaxy S5, swapping out the pla…………… continues on PC Magazine

LG preps ‘radically different’ G4 and a whole new flagship line
News from TechRadar:

LG has been showing off a few phones at MWC this year, but the top-end LG G4 hasn’t been spotted. According to the company’s mobile chief Cho Juno, the handset is going to be “radically different” to anything that’s come before – both inside and outside.

The Korea Times reports a MWC interview with Juno in which he describes a phone that’s a leap forward from the G3. It will feature a metal rather than polycarbonate casing, a major overhaul of its software design, and an improved user experience to boot.

“We will announce LG UX 4.0 before announcing the LG G4,” Cho told reporters. “I think it is simply the best and the issue is how to best fit the new UX system into the G4 smartphone.”

We’re expecting to see the LG G4 at some point over the next couple of months.

News from 9 to 5 Google:

A couple reports out of Korea today highlight some of LG’s plans for the relatively near future, including a statement (via Korea Times) from the company’s mobile chief Cho Jun-ho suggesting that the upcoming LG G4 is going to be “radically different” than its predecessor. The device will reportedly feature a “metal-mixtured” body and sport the company’s LG UX 4.0, which Cho says will be announced sometime before the new phone.

Also, LG also reportedly has a completely new device series in the works (via Korea Herald), featuring more powerful specs than the current top-of-the-line G series…

As for the LG G4, it’s not just going to be aesthetically different as LG’s mobile head says that the company has interest in building some of its own internals for the device. Specifically, LG wants to no longer be dependent on Qualcomm, a leading provider of smartphone systems-on-a-chip, and has reportedly “spent millions of dollars to develop processors at its logic-chip research lab.”

Android 5.0 Lollipop Update for Samsung Galaxy S5, Note 4, LG G3, Xperia Z3 …
News from Christian Post:

By Liezl Dunuan , Christian Post Contributor

March 3, 2015|1:37 pm

Google/Twitter/Image

After Google unveiled the latest version of the Android mobile operating system Lollipop in June 2014, smartphone and tablet users on Android have been asking if and when they will get an update on their phones.

The earliest to get the updates were the Nexus devices with HTC and Motorola sometime November 2014. Google is leaving it to the phone manufacturers to schedule their releases for their own devices and several reports have come out to try and consolidate information about Lollipop updates.

One such report is found in Digital Trends, and it tries to round up updated news, tidbits and rumors about Lollipop releases on the major smartphone brands.

It starts the round up with information about Samsung phones. According to the report, Galaxy S5 owners in the US started getting the updates starting early February, for those who are on the Verizon network, which should be completed by the end of February. T-Mobile S5 owners got theirs in mid-February. For S5 owners in Europe, they will be receiving their updates soon, the schedule being dependent on how fast the networks approve the new firmware.

LG Debuts 4 New Phones and a Fancy Smartwatch

LG Debuts 4 New Phones and a Fancy Smartwatch
News from Wired:

The LG Watch Urbane. We’ve seen it before, but LG has now announced the availability of an LTE variant that doesn’t run Android Wear, but does make calls without a tethered phone. LG

BARCELONA, SPAIN—Today at the Mobile World Congress trade show, LG debuted its latest range of devices, including two wearables and a small fleet of Android smartphones.

Previously announced two weeks ago, the Watch Urbane is an elegant Android Wear smartwatch made with gold- and silver-coated metal. It also comes with a leather replaceable strap that can be replaced with any 22mm-wide band. The Watch Urbane is LG’s third entry into the Android Wear category. In fact, even though it’s designed to look like an everyday luxury timepiece, it has a lot in common with company’s much more sporty G Watch R. Both of them feature a circular, 1.3-inch P-OLED display with 320×320 pixels resolution and 349 pixel density. Both cases house a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 1.2GHz quad-core processor with 4GB of eMMC storage and 512MB of RAM. Even the battery life is the same: two full-days, thanks to the 410 mAh Li-Ion cell. Further technical details include dust and water IP67 certification, 9-axis sensors, barometer…………… continues on Wired
