Case Manufacturer Posts LG G3 Renders Over the Weekend, Try to Contain …
News from Droid Life:

Over the weekend, purported “official” renders of the LG G3 popped up, watermarks began flying around, and the internet couldn’t contain itself over what it thought was a massive leak. I hate to break it to you, but the renders are from a case manufacturer who is promoting its LG G3 cases on Amazon early. That’s not say that these renders don’t tell us something, just keep in mind that these are by no means official. 

Case manufacturer, Ringke (a favorite of ours for their slim cases), posted up new LG G3 products of theirs that will be in stock around June 30. The cases show the shape of the LG G3 with both white and black shells around white and black versions of the device. The camera, volume/power button combo, IR blaster, dual-LED, and speaker grill on the back all match up in placement to previous leaks.

On the front, we are seeing a blank, black screen that looks big, edge-to-edge, and with minimal bezel in the chin and top areas. We are also seeing what appears to be a cutout for either a TV antenna or P…………… continues on Droid Life

LG L90 Dual review: There is more to this phone than the knocking on heaven’s …
News from Indian Express:

The LG L90 is priced at Rs 17,499

Summary

The L90 is powered by the latest Android OS, the 4.4 KitKat and is in perfect synch with the phone’s hardware

The knock code has for long been used by prisoners to communicate with each other by producing a series of tap sounds. Alphabets, with the exception of K, are visualised in a 5×5 grid, and each letter is represented by two taps. The first tap signifies the row and the second tap tells the column in which the letter is in the grid. Prison authorities couldn’t decipher the code due to the incessant chatter of prisoners using prison walls, bars etc to tap coded messages. When held in isolation this was perhaps the only way that a prisoner could talk to other inmates.

Decades later, Korean electronics giant LG has patented the Knock Code and introduced a striped down version of it in its new entrant to the L Series Collection, the L90. LG in its press release claimed it to be the “most secure pattern unlocking mechanism”. And we put that to the test.

A user can preset a tap sequence on a 2×2 grid and use it to unlock the screensaver. One would presume, the more the number of taps, the more secure the phone is. For all practical purposes we set a 10-tap unlock sequence. Barring a few minor hiccups — human error — the phone picks the sequence and unlocks without delay.

LG Overtakes Apple as #2 US Handset Manufacturer; Samsung Passes Apple …
News from Tom’s Hardware Guide:

Samsung remains leading phone maker in America.

For the first time in a year, LG has overtaken Apple in the U.S. handset market to become the region’s second largest phone manufacturer.

According to statistics from Counterpoint Research, LG phones accounted for 13 percent of the U.S. handset market in December, which is one percent more than Apple.

Samsung remained the U.S. market leader with a 33 percent share of the market. Google’s Motorola and HTC came fourth and fifth with nine and eight percent, respectively.

While it’s unclear which LG devices propelled the company’s sales during the busy holiday month, it recently said that its Optimus G smartphone has sold over one million units. A spokesperson for the firm told Yonhap News: “Optimus G and our other latest smartphones gained popularity in the North American market.”

The Google Nexus 4, which is produced by LG, also could have contributed, des…………… continues on Tom’s Hardware Guide

LG may be back as the second top phone manufacturer in the US

LG may be back as the second top phone manufacturer in the US
News from GSMArena.com:

Yup, after years of poor performance in the mobile phone sector, LG may actually be back on track. We last heard that they’ve sold some 55 million handsets in 2012, even though their Optimus G was not doing terribly well, selling only 1 million units during the first 4 months of its availability.

But hey, perhaps due to the incredible popularity of the competitively priced and Google-sanctioned LG Nexus 4 (pictured left), LG managed to outgrow Apple’s 13% US market share.

According to Counterpoint Research, LG actually scored a market share of 14% in the US. Now how’s that for a comeback? We are yet to see where this would take them in the quarter that lies ahead.

Of course, we would advise anyone at LG to wait for a second confirmation from another market research agency before popping up that champagne.

On a side note, Samsung is still the market leader in the US with a 33% market share in the same period.

LG Optimus G Pro details leak online
News from CNET Australia:

LG’s Optimus G Pro will allegedly pack a 5-inch display, a 1.7GHz processor and a 13-megapixel rear camera, according to details that have appeared on the web.

(Credit: Ribelick)

A leaked slide sent to tech news site Engadget teased a host of alleged details about the Optimus G Pro. If the slide is on the money, the new smartphone would sport a 5-inch 1920×1080-pixel display, and tap into a 1.7GHz Qualcomm quad-core Snapdragon processor for its power.

Running Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, the Pro model would include 2GB of memory, 32GB of storage and support for long-term evolution (LTE). Also along for the ride would be a 2.4-megapixel camera in front, and a 13-megapixel camera on the back.

Many of those specs would be improvements over those found in the Optimus G, though certain variants of the current model already include some of those features.
