LG’s next flagship phone set to launch in Q4, CEO says

LG’s next flagship phone set to launch in Q4, CEO says
News from TechnoBuffalo:

LG has been promising a new flagship phone for a while now, though we’re still not sure exactly what to expect. Now the company is promising to release the device before the end of the year, in addition to a few mid-range and entry-level models.

Speaking to the press and employees, LG CEO Joon-Ho Cho promised the mysterious device will arrive in Q4 2015. However, he also denied ever promising a “super premium phone.” That quote came from an ETNews report last month, though the source at the time was an anonymous LG official.

Previous reports have suggested the device in question could be the LG G Pro 3. The new phone will allegedly pack a massive 6-inch Quad HD display, a cutting edge Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable storage, a…………… continues on TechnoBuffalo

LG Nexus 2015 rumors, specs, release date: new photo appears to be selfie shot …
News from Vine Report:

The tech world may have just seen the very first photo taken by the long rumored LG Nexus 5 2015.

As reported by Phone Arena, an employee who works for Google’s Quality Assurance Department posted a selfie on his Google+ profile, with the Exif data saying that the photo posted was taken via a certain phone called “LG Bullhead”. To people who have been following the flow of the rumor mill closely, the term “Bullhead” will immediately be familiar as it is the codename of the long rumored new Nexus phone to be released by LG. Information about the photo extracted from the post revealed that the “LG Bullhead” allegedly used to take the selfie has a 5 metafiles front camera with 1944 × 2592 resolution, and with an aperture of f/2.0, enabling users to take quality images even in low lighting conditions. Coordinates data from the photo upload showed that the photo was taken at Googleplex in Mountain View, California.

LG G4 review: Design and build

Despite rumours of a metal build, LG has gone for genuine leather instead which is unusual as a main option (you can choose it for the Moto X but it’s a premium extra). The leather feels nice with the stitching so it’s preferable to faux leather as found on some Samsung devices but some colours aren’t great such as yellow and sky blue. Although the leather is vegetable tanned and LG says the colour will change over time.

If the idea of leather puts you off the LG G4 straight away then don’t worry because there is a ceramic option too which has a smooth diamond texture and comes in three colours: Metallic Gray, Ceramic White and Shiny Gold. However, this feels pretty plasticky especially the white model with LG con…………… continues on LG G4 review – PC Advisor (registration)

Samsung Galaxy Note 5 vs. LG G4: The struggle between modular and premium design

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is a very different phone compared with the Note 4, but it also stands apart compared to other flagships. Many of the features Samsung removed from the Note line continue to exist elsewhere, but you won’t have quite the same experience. Take the LG G4 as an example: It’s more modular and lighter, but are the missing software features worth the tradeoff? Let’s see how they stack up.

Phone Comparisons: LG G4 vs OnePlus 2
News from Android Headlines – Android News:

Introduction

Do we have a good one for you today – the popular LG G4 goes up against the new OnePlus 2.  The tried and true LG brand competes with the always-controversial OnePlus brand.  LG is a huge company and has been making mobile phones for years and their new LG G4 model is a work of art from its QHD display to its top-notch camera area.  OnePlus is a small Chinese smartphone company, founded less than two years ago and while they put out a great product for the price, they have found it hard to get their smartphone built and out into the market at a fast enough pace.  OnePlus has promised that the OnePlus 2 model will be easier to obtain, which will be good news for both the company and their loyal band of followers.

These two devices have a solid build and premium look to them, especially if you include one of the optional backs.  Despite their heritage, the LG G4 and the OnePlus 2 do share a few common specifications.  For starters, they share the same size display at 5.5-inches and because of that, they are also almost identical…………… continues on Android Headlines – Android News

Samsung Galaxy S6 vs LG G4: Which Phone Offers Best Android Experience?
News from Latin Post:

First Posted: Aug 17, 2015 03:31 PM EDT

The technology put inside today’s smartphones is becoming more and more advanced. Two excellent options are the Samsung Galaxy S6 and the LG G4, according to Extreme Tech.

Comparing the two smartphones, the first difference can be seen in screen size: The LG G4 offers a 5.5-inch screen while the Samsung Galaxy S6 is just a 5.1-inch display.

The displays are not created equally though. Samsung’s Super AMOLED display provides a 2560 x 1440 resolution and 577 pixels per-inch (PPI). That display is the sharpest currently offered on any flagship smartphone. The LG G4 has the bigger 5.5-inch screen, but it is not an AMOLED display. Instead it uses an LCD display. This leads to 538 PPI and colors that are sometimes too cool. The AMOLED display looks better and displays higher quality images. 

The processor used in the LG G4 is the older Qualcomm Snapdragon 808. Since there were problems with the Snapdragon 810 overheating, LG decided to go with the Snapdragon 808, which is six cores instead of eight. Samsung decided to go away from Qualcomm all together and crea…………… continues on Latin Post

Rumor mill: LG’s rumored Nexus phone seen in new leaked photos
News from FierceWireless:

Rumors have been spreading since May that Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) is working with two OEMs to create its next Nexus-branded phones running Android M software: a 5.7-inch Huawei device and a 5.2-inch phone from LG Electronics. Now, images purporting to show the LG-made device have surfaced.

The photo, originally posted in the Nexus Indonesia Google+ community, shows the back of a white Nexus device with a sticker that appears to have LG’s logo on it. At the top of the phone is a camera lens and what appears to be a rumored fingerprint scanner.

As Engadget notes, the camera appears to have a laser focus, dual-LED flash, which has popped up in recent flagship LG phones, like the G4. The phone also appears to have a plastic backing, which could bring down the final price of the LG-made Nexus phone. The Nexus 5, which LG produced in 2013, sold for $ 349 unlocked, while the Motorola Mobility-made Nexus 6, a 6-inch phablet, sold for $ 649.

The rumored Huawei device is expected to have more high-end specifications and cost more. Last year Google unveiled the latest Nexus devices in mid-October and could choose to do so again.

A July report from the Information, citing unnamed sources, said that the phone…………… continues on FierceWireless

News from ChristianToday:

Google/Nexus

The Nexus 5, which will reportedly share its name with this year’s latest Google phone.

Google follows a trend of releasing a new phone each year. This time, it’s the Google/ LG Nexus 5 that’s being put on the spotlight. 

The Google phone of 2015, according to PC Advisor UK, is just right around the corner. However, it’s not exactly sure if what is dubbed as the Nexus 5 2015 is really a Nexus 5 — the name has aready been used, along with Nexus 4, 6, and 7. Nevertheless, there are plenty of speculations on what the upcoming device will have to offer.

The PC Advisor article reports that both LG and Huawei are each doing a version of the device, but somehow, it appears that the LG-Nexus will have 5.2-inch HD P-OLED screen, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 620, 4 GB of DDR3 RAM with memory expandable up to 64 GB, front-facing speakers, and a 13- and 4-megapixel camera combo.

Rumor: LG’s has a second Nuclun chip; it’s faster than the Exynos 7420 SoC …
News from Phone Arena:

Aiming to get to the level of Samsung, Apple, and Huawei, LG has also been making its baby steps on the chipset scene, aiming to design its own smartphone chipset. Its NUCLUN chip barely made it outside South Korea as it was allegedly overheating; subsequently, rumors about another LG-made chipset surfaced, claiming that LG is aiming at Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810. 

A new rumor just hit us, claiming that LG is preparing a second generation of the NUCLUN chipset. This time around, the rumor mill has it that the NUCLUN 2 will be gunning for Samsung’s top-tier Exynos 7420 chipset, which can be found on the Galaxy S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+, and Note5 (it’s also rumored that the high-end

This could be Google’s new Nexus 5 smartphone, built by LG

This could be Google’s new Nexus 5 smartphone, built by LG
News from The Verge:

We waved goodbye to the Nexus 5 when Google stopped selling its 2013 flagship Android smartphone earlier this year, but it might be time to say hello to a revamped version. Rumors in May suggested that Google was working with partners Huawei and LG to produce two new Nexus phones — a 5.7-inch Huawei device, and a 5.2-inch model with the Korean manufacturer. Now, thanks to a leaked photo originally posted in the Nexus Indonesia Google+ community, we might have our first glimpse of the new Nexus 5 in the wild.

The image resembles renders of the rumored LG Nexus

The picture shows the back of a white Nexus device. At the base is a sticker featuring a small red circle that appears to be LG’s logo, suggesting this phone, if legitimate, is the LG device rather than the Huawei collaboration. At the top is a camera lens, and just underneath, a similarly sized circle that looks to be the rumored fingerprint scanner. The image closely resembles rend…………… continues on The Verge

Leaks of the upcoming Google Nexus 5 (2015) reveal that the gadget will come with a large display for a better mobile experience.

NDTV Gadgets reported that the leaked renders of the Nexus 5 shows a slim design for the phone with the volume control and power button placed on its right side.

“The bottom panel will house the 3.5mm audio jack and will also include the charging slot. The left panel of the handset is said to sport the SIM card slot,” the report said.

The renders also reportedly show that the Nexus 5 may come with a fingerprint scanner which is believed to be placed on the rear side of the phone, below the main camera.

uSwitch exclusive: LG Nexus 5 renders and video confirm rear fingerprint …
News from uSwitch.com (Tech):

The LG Nexus 5 2015 edition will feature a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner and pack a 5.2-inch screen and protruding camera, renders obtained by uSwitch reveal.

Sourced on our behalf by @OnLeaks, AKA Steve Hemmerstoffer of Nowwhereelse.fr, the renders are based on detailed factory schematics provided to accessory-makers. They’re then used as the blueprint to ensure third-party accessories are compatible with as-yet-unreleased handsets.

The renders confirm that LG, which experimented with including buttons on the back of its G3 and G4, will take this approach a stage further for the Nexus 5 with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner that sits square beneath the protruding camera.

Around the front, it looks like they’ll be dual-stereo speakers for a nice, full sound.

The images also add heft to claims that the screen will come in 5.2-inches, up from 4.95-inches last time around, and effectively rubber-stamp reports that the phone will be 146.9mm high, 72.9mm wide and is 8mm thick. However, if you include the protruding camera in the latter measure, it’s 9.8…………… continues on uSwitch.com (Tech)

Here’s why LG is still making flip phones
News from The Verge:

Like AOL subscriptions, the flip phone seems to be an anachronism, a leftover fragment from another age. And yet, just like AOL subscriptions, the flip phone persists, with LG this week introducing its Wine Smart handset. It runs Android on a 3.2-inch screen, comes in a choice of burgundy or navy, and it even has an LTE connection. Plus it has a physical number pad and a bunch of shortcut buttons that old Nokia might have been proud of.

It would be easy to poke fun at something we don’t understand, but it’s far more interesting to find out why this LG Wine Smart handset (and a number of similar ones from Samsung) still exists. So I asked. Here’s what LG told me: flip phones remain popular with four, somewhat related classes of users. These are people who:

1) Use their phone primarily for talking, not gaming or browsing.

2) Want their young children to be connected but not distracted by games.

3) Are generally older and are not comfortable pressing buttons on a screen or have trouble seeing the small keys on a glass display.

4) Need smart functions occasionally for looking things up and messaging.

The picture gets a little bit clearer for two rumored Nexus smartphones today as reliable Twitter source @onleaks shares new unconfirmed details.

We’re getting to that point of the year where we look for new handsets from Google and its partners. Often released in conjunction with the latest Android OS, Google’s Nexus phone line is typically refreshed in the fall. Sold directly to consumers, these models are unlocked and typically priced lower than top phones from other vendors.

Unlike previous years, Google may tap two hardware makers for the next generation of Nexus smartphones. LG is expected to release a new take on 2013′s Nexus 5; Huawei is

News from Android Community:

R Padla

The Hi-Fi music service is available for premium smartphone owners via the the LG SmartWorld app.

Only a few LG phone models can enjoy the Hi-Fi Music Service in more than 70 countries all over the world. If you own a high-end LG smartphone in the US, Brazil, France, Russia, UK, China, Australia, or Italy, you’ll soon be able to  download and listen to songs with superior audio qualitya at 24bit/192kHz playback. An original CD usually plays at only 16bit/44.1kHz but the Hi-Fi Music Service improves on the audio quality for a more enjoyable listening experience.

The new Hi-Fi music service is one of LG’s many ways to bring the best features and benefits to LG phone owners.
