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 Electronics posts loss after EU fine

LG Electronics posts loss after EU fine
News from Financial Times:

LG Electronics, the world’s second-largest television maker by revenue, reported an unexpected loss for the fourth quarter as a big fine in the EU for price-fixing outweighed an improved performance in its mobile phone business.

The South Korean company suffered a net loss of Won468bn ($ 432m) in the October-December period, widening from a Won112bn loss a year earlier.

In December, LG, which derives about half of its sales from TVs, was fined €492m by the EU antitrust regulator as part of a record combined €1.47bn price fixing penalty on cathode-ray tube TV makers including Philips, Panasonic and Toshiba.

The profit margin at LG’s TV business shrank to 0.3 per cent in the fourth quarter from 0.8 per cent in the third quarter due to slowing…………… continues on Financial Times

Apple Ousts Samsung As No.1 Mobile Maker In US In Q4 2012 — Taking …
News from TechCrunch:

Apple took the title of largest mobile maker by volume in the U.S. in Q4 2012, according to Strategy Analytics, which said Cupertino rose to the top of the U.S. phone maker charts for the first time ever — taking a record 34 per cent market share, and shipping an estimated 17.7 million units in the quarter. Samsung came second, with a 32.3 per cent share, shipping 16.8 million smartphones. Third place went to LG — but the company was far behind Apple and Samsung, with only a nine per cent share, and shipments of 4.7 million units.

However, despite losing out to Apple in Q4, Samsung came out on top in the U.S. for the full year 2012 — taking a 31.8 per cent share of the market vs Apple’s 26.2 per cent. LG took 12.3 per cent for the full year.

Strategy Analytics said generous carrier subsidies and extensive marketing of the new iPhone 5 model helped Apple to claim the U.S. mobile crown in Q4 — taking the title from Samsung which had held it since 2008. Samsung still put in a good performance in the fourth quarter, according to the analyst — which noted that its market share rose five points from a year earlier. However this increase was “not enough to hold off a surging Apple”, it said.

As for LG, while it remains the third largest player in the U.S. it has struggled to compete with “an Apple…………… continues on TechCrunch

LG posts a small profit for 2012, phone division doing okay

LG posts a small profit for 2012, phone division doing okay
News from GSMArena.com:

LG announced its financial results for the final quarter of 2012 and for the full year. The company ended up with a small net profit, due to a big fine from the European Commission over the CRT price fixing scandal.

That aside, the company saw its full year revenue drop 6% year over year, but operating profit went from $ 342 million in 2011 to $ 1.01 billion in 2012. However, net profit was only $ 80.8 million as LG was fined €295 million (around $ 400 million), which accounts for a lot of the difference.

Anyway, LG’s phone business brought in $ 2.58 billion in revenues in Q4 2012, up both year over year and quarter on quarter. During that quarter, LG shipped 15.4 million phones, over half of which were smartphones.

Demand for LTE-enabled smartphones (like the Optimus G and Optimus Vu II) and 3G smartphones (like the Nexus 4 and the L Series phones) was strong. In fact, with LTE networks launching in more and more markets (especially Europe), LG plans to focus on LTE-capable phones and launch a successor to the Optimus G, the L Series and start a new F series of mass market LTE-enabled phones.

LG’s mobile division saw a decrease in revenue for the full year 2012, but the operating profit was in the black (the division posted an operating loss in 2011).

The TV business did very well– it posted record sales of 9.3 million uni…………… continues on GSMArena.com

LG Electronics Posts 3rd-Quarter Profit on Phone Earnings

LG Electronics Posts 3rd-Quarter Profit on Phone Earnings
News from Businessweek:

LG Electronics Inc. (066570), South Korea’s second-largest mobile-phone maker, returned to profit in the third quarter on earnings from handset sales.

Net income was 157.1 billion won in the three months ended Sept. 30, compared with a loss of 413.9 billion won a year earlier, Seoul-based LG said in a statement today. The average of 22 analyst estimates compiled by Bloomberg was for a profit of 158.6 billion won.

The company is counting on its Optimus line of smartphones running Google Inc. (GOOG)’s Android operating system to compete with Apple Inc.’s iPhone and Samsung Electronics Co.’s Galaxy devices, while cutting production of cheaper basic phones. LG also seeks to capitalize on demand for computer-like TVs and other appliances to fuel growth.

“They are improving,” Lim Dori, a Seoul-based analyst at Shinyoung Securities Co., said by phone before today’s announcement. “The handset business is steadily getting back on track. In home appliances, LG is competitive, widening their lead over smaller rivals.”

LG Posts Teaser for New Snapdragon Quad-core Powered Phone

Friday, August 24th, 2012

LG Posts Teaser for New Snapdragon Quad-core Powered Phone
News from Droid Life:

LG appears to be on the verge of releasing the most powerful smartphone on the planet. In a new teaser, they have confirmed that they are working on a phone powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 Pro, better known to most of us as the quad-core variant of the chip we are seeing in handsets today. This chipset sports an Adreno 320 GPU, one that should make all other mobile graphics processing units look silly. We have seen benchmarks of tablets (and phones?) with this processor inside and have been blown away.

What we want to know, is if a processor this powerful, is enough to get you to buy an LG phone? Will we see it at IFA next week, along with Samsung’s Galaxy Note 2?

How qualified is the Apple-Samsung jury? We found out
News from CNET:

CNET dug through court transcripts and our own notes to learn how tech-savvy the jury is. It may surprise you.

Spoiler alert. While the jury’s verdict could help decide the fate of the iPhone and numerous Samsung handsets, the phone maker most preferred on the jury was LG.

Join our live blog as the verdict is read.

The nine-person jury in the Apple v. Samsung case is deciding one of the tech sector’s most significant patent cases — and only one member has any experience with patents.

The verdict in the case could go a long way toward shaping the future of the smartphone and tablet markets, but of the nine jurors, only four own a smartphone. Three own tablets.

Oct. 26 (Bloomberg) — LG Electronics Inc., the world’s third-largest maker of mobile phones, reported a wider-than- estimated quarterly loss as mobile-phone sales missed forecasts and earnings dropped at its flat-panel unit.

The Seoul-based phone maker had a profit of 7.6 billion won in the third quarter last year.

A record loss at LG Display Co. added to lower sales at the mobile-phone business, which has lost more than 700 billion won in the past year.
