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

Wednesday, August 26th, 2015

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.

Review: LG’s G Flex 2 makes me wish all big phones were curved – The Next Web

Review: LG’s G Flex 2 makes me wish all big phones were curved – The Next Web
News from Review: LG’s G Flex 2 makes me wish all big phones were curved – The Next Web:

LG showed off its engineering muscles with the original G Flex, but didn’t quite succeed at showing us why the world needs a curved phone.

While we saw some boons to the curve, the unwieldly size, low resolution, middling software and disappointing camera meant it wasn’t the holistic tour-de-force it could have been. It was more marketing gimmick and cool tech demo than something you’d want to call your everyday phone.

A year and half later, enter the G Flex 2. Not to spoil the review, but it’s better in every way. It’s smaller, looks better and has a much better camera. Where the G Flex was an interesting tech demo, the G Flex 2 is just a good phone – one that may just stand up to the best of the Android contenders.

LG Looks to Avoid Apple’s Shadow, Dribbles Out News of G4 Flagship Phone
News from Re/code:

Let’s face it, no matter how good LG’s upcoming G4 is, it is going to have trouble getting noticed in a market dominated by Apple and Samsung.

Making matters worse is that both Samsung and HTC have already launched this year’s flagship models with the Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9 both hitting the U.S. market this month.

So props to LG for trying an approach different from the big-bang rollout favored by its larger rivals. Instead, LG is employing one of its favorite methods: Tease your own launch with nuggets of news.

While the official G4 announcement isn’t planned until April 28, LG has already had separate releases touting the 5.5-inch screen that will be on the device and changes the company is making to its software interface. LG also announced a program to give 4,000 consumers a month-long test drive of the new phone.

That’s in addition to teaser videos and other attempts at buzz generation.

LG: Next flagship phone to sport vastly improved 5.5-inch LCD

LG: Next flagship phone to sport vastly improved 5.5-inch LCD
News from CNET:

LG will outfit its next flagship phone with a higher-end screen. LG Display

LG will outfit its next flagship phone with a screen that promises major improvements in just about every way.

The new QHD (Quad High Definition) LCD display “represents a quantum jump in terms of key features,” LG Display said Friday. Those features include brightness, color gamut, contrast ratio, touch function, power consumption and thinness.

The new screens have already entered mass production to be used in LG’s upcoming flagship smartphone scheduled to debut the end of the month.

LG did not mention the name of its next flagship phone in Friday’s announcement. But the company will host a launch event on April 28 for the device. Industry watchers expected it to be dubbed the G4 — as a follow-up to LG’s current flagship phone, the G3.

LG’s second generation curved phone, the G Flex 2 is shaped like a banana – which makes it an attractive curio and it’s interesting to use, but should people actually buy it?

The idea behind the concave screen is that it is a more natural shape for a device designed to fit against the body, be that the face or the backside.

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.

News from The Next Web:

Ahead of the Mobile World Congress trade show, LG has unveiled an LTE variant of its fashionable Watch Urbane that will support calls over VoLTE without a phone, as well as NFC payments.

Unlike the Android Wear-based original, the LG Watch Urbane LTE will feature a proprietary OS that the company says is not webOS, which runs its smart TVs and was shown off on an Audi watch. It also has a walkie-talkie feature for group voice chats as well as an SOS button to quickly place a call to your contacts in case of an emergency.

It will also sport sensors for GPS and fitness tracking, as well as atmospheric pressure and heart rate monitoring. The watch will also support translate foreign languages via voice recognition.

LG G3 specs: LG Isai FL expected to be next flagship phone outside Japan

LG G3 specs: LG Isai FL expected to be next flagship phone outside Japan
News from ChristianToday:

Will the LG G3 be based on the LG Isai FL?

The device made exclusively for the Japanese market is being tipped to release as the LG G3 outside of Japan.

The device was named LG Isai and was made for the Japanese telecom company KDDI.  The specifications were basically the same as what went on to become the LG G2.

Speculation that LG will similarly re-release this year’s LG Isai FL as the LG G3 for international markets has been compounded by images shared by Twitter tipster @evleaks purporting to be show the front and back panels of the LG Isai FL in white and a bold pink.

LG G3 specs could include iPhone 5S feature
News from Phones Review:

We are obviously getting closer to seeing the next flagship smartphone from LG, and now more information is coming to light that could mean that the LG G3 specs could include an iPhone 5S feature.

Previously a Sprint User Agent Profile appeared giving us some possible specifications about the LG G3, and now another one has been leaked that details some of the pre-loaded applications that could be coming on the handset.

These include PayPal and McAffee Mobile Security offerings along with some others that could mean that the device will come with some kind of fingerprint scanner. Of course this may not mean anything and could even be faked, but there have been a lot of LG G3 leaks recently that have included more recently a mini version in the pipeline.

Rumor: LG’s 5.5 inch 1080p flagship to hit the market next month?

Rumor: LG’s 5.5 inch 1080p flagship to hit the market next month?
News from Android Authority:

HTC may have been the first company to launch a 1080p smartphone, but devices from other handset vendors are not that far behind. According to a report in the Korean publication ETNews, LG will announce a 5.5 inch 1080p flagship phone at Mobile World Congress next month. We know what you’re thinking, big deal, when is it actually going to land on store shelves? The report suggests that’s going to happen right after the phone is unveiled. We can think of only one other company who announced devices and then ships them just a handful of days later: Apple.

The story also says Pantech will launch a phone using the same LG manufactured 5.5 inch 1080p panel, but knowing how Pantech operates, we’re just going to call it now and say that handset will never launch outside of South Korea.

Now we can’t stress this enough, 1080p screens are going to be the highlight feature of numerous devices due to be announced during the next 60 days. Huawei

LG Nexus 4 a No Show in Google Play Store and Still Expensive on Retailers
News from International Business Times AU:

LG Nexus 4 still has an expensive price tag on third party retailers and resellers due to its absence in Google Play Store.

The price of the LG Nexus 4 is still high since the device is nowhere to be found in Google Play Store and shipment is delayed.

On eBay, a re-seller offers the 16GB Nexus 4 for $ 550 each which is more than $ 200 more expensive than the suggested retail price set by Google. Also worth noting is the 8GB variant being sold by one eBay top-seller with a price tag of $ 450, more than roughly $ 200 costlier than Google’s $ 299 8GB Nexus 4.

At Amazon, the numbers are higher as they allow shipping to other countries. The 16GB LG Nexus 4 retails for $ 575 each and the 8GB variant is priced $ 450 on average. For comparison, popular online smartphone retail stores are selling the unlocked handset for $ 600 for the 16GB and $ 550 for the “cheaper” 8GB variant.

Google is currently struggling to meet demand for its recently-announced Nexus 4 smartphone. Manufactured by LG, the device’s low price means it has seen extremely high demand, and Google has had issues keeping the phone in stock.

The Google-LG Nexus 4 boasts a 4.7 inch screen display with 1280×768 resolution, 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor, 8 MP camera and 2100 mAh battery.

Next Nexus phone coming from LG: No consistency in the brand

Next Nexus phone coming from LG: No consistency in the brand
News from ZDNet:

Summary: Google has shown a willingness to share the love with its Nexus-branded phones and tablets, a move confirmed to continue with the next Nexus phone from LG. This will be the fourth hardware partner making a Nexus device, preventing consistency in the brand.

Google’s Nexus line of phones and tablets is the flagship line for the Android platform. Each Nexus device has debuted with the latest version of the Android OS, without OEM customizations to complicate things. Nexus devices have usually gotten updates in a timely fashion, something rare in the Android space.

CNET has confirmed that the next Nexus phone will appear this month, produced by LG. This will be the first time Google has teamed up with LG and it should help the latter break into the US market. The phone is expected to be heavily influenced by the LG Optimus G as seen in the photo above.

“LG is among the companies that’s still struggling to turn a profit on its smartphone business. The company is hoping for better this holiday season, with AT&T selling its Optimus G and keeping the Optimus franchise name intact.” — Roger Cheng — CNET…………… continues on ZDNet

LG’s rumored Nexus Android phone may be stingy with storage
News from VentureBeat:

Another year, another flagship Nexus Android smartphone on the horizon. This year, it looks like LG is the leading contender to build the next Nexus phone, and if you believe the rumors, it may be a bit of a shock to Android fans.

LG’s Nexus is reportedly based on the company’s Optimus G smartphone, will feature wireless charging, and is target for a mid-November launch, according to MoDaCo.

But the site also notes that it will only be available with 8GB and 16GB storage options initially, won’t allow for expanded storage with MicroSD cards, and won’t even let you swap out the battery. These all sound like a surprising amount of limitations for what’s supposed to be the next flagship Android experience.

Since the launch of the Nexus One (built by HTC), Google has used the Nexus line to serve as a model for all of the Android phones that would follow for the next year. The other devices in the lineup, the Nexus S and Galaxy Nexus (both built by Samsung), further refined what the ideal Android phone could be. The Nexus line is also notable for being the first to sport new versions of Android, while other Android phones have to wait for their manu…………… continues on VentureBeat

Rumor: Next Nexus Phone Coming Within 30 Days, Maybe Android 4.2 as Well

Rumor: Next Nexus Phone Coming Within 30 Days, Maybe Android 4.2 as Well
News from Droid Life:

You may not realize this, but it was just last year on October 18 that Google and Samsung took to the stage to reveal the Galaxy Nexus and Ice Cream Sandwich (Android 4.0). Today, is October 1. So where are all of the rumors surrounding the next Nexus device? By this time in 2011, we knew that the Galaxy Nexus was going to be called the Galaxy Nexus and also that Android 4.0 was ICS and that they would arrive together. This year seems to be completely different, though. In fact, we know absolutely nothing about the next Nexus phone, if or when it will arrive, and who is manufacturing it. All we have are a couple of rumors to go on, one of which is new and paints a 30-day window in to the picture. According to our friends over at Android and Me, who spoke with numerous industry sources of theirs, the next Nexus has “already leaked” on some blogs and will be unveiled within the “next 30 days.” So which phone is it?

Review: LG Optimus L5
News from PCWorld.co.nz:

LG Optimus L5

RRP incl GST: $ 399
Contact: lge.co.nz

AT A GLANCE

  • 4-inch screen
  • 800MHz processor
  • But it’s slow anyway

Looks good, but performs like a turtle on top of another, sleeping turtle.

The LG Optimus L5 is the perfect Android phone for someone who wants style on a budget. Unfortunately, it hasn’t got much else going for it.

The body of the Optimus L5 doesn’t look cheap – actually, it kind of looks like a Samsung Galaxy S, with its rectangular button in the middle. The front and sides of the device are glass and plastic painted to look like metal, and it has a plastic cover on the back that has been painted in such a way that it’s kind of glossy and doesn’t look cheap. Until you turn the screen on, you might think that the L5 was a far more expensive phone.

LG have clearly gone for style over substance, because the 4-inch display seems nice on the surface, but it’s very low resultion for its size at 320 by 480 pixels. The colours are a little washed out, especially reds and pinks. The text smoothing could also be improved, as you’ll suffer a bit of…………… continues on PCWorld.co.nz
