LG are bringing significant updates to all three of their Android Wear devices, the primary update coming to the G Watch R, their first round wearable device.
A new leak has arrived which purportedly shows the upcoming LG-made 2015 Nexus 5 in the flesh. We already know that LG and Huawei are working on a possible two smartphones to be released by Google this year, but until now both have remained pretty under wraps.
LG has today unveiled a mid-ranged version of the LG G4, the LG G4 Beat, a mid-range device aimed at offering "the best features and functions of the LG G4, delivering value without compromising performance or usability."
With both LG and Huawei in the running to develop and manufacture the next Nexus smartphone from Google, a recent report is suggesting LG has won the bidding and will be taking over from Motorola for 2015's Nexus smartphone.
LG have been facing increasingly stiff competition in the mobile market as of late. With Apple having the ability to release any old tat and have millions flocking to their stores; Samsung deciding that bloatware really isn't a good selling point; and HTC who have repeatedly been awarded the best Android device; LG has a lot cut out for them, but with the LG G4 I think they've done it.
Meerkat, the popular live-streaming mobile app might have finally been acquired but not by the likes of Facebook like rumours have suggested, but by Korean tech giant LG which is fairly peculiar. According to a trademark which was filed earlier this week the company may have quietly purchased the company and is currently getting things in order for an official announcement.
Before the announcement of the LG G4, rumours suggested that LG were also planning to release a Stylus version of their G4 as well as word that they'd also be launching a much smaller budget version of their device. With no sign of these at LG's event, we weren't sure whether they were still on the cards. That was until today.
The Google Nexus 5 was a highly acclaimed phone by both users and critics, and while the Nexus 6 offers something a little different, many are looking for a true successor to the Nexus 5 and it looks like one could be on the way. Google is apparently in talks with both Huawei and LG for the manufacturers of the next Nexus, but now LG has revealed that they could in fact make the next device.
As expected LG has unveiled their next flagship smartphone the LG G4, and though we already know pretty much everything there is to know about it thanks to teasers from LG themselves, and a torrent of leaks, we're still pretty impressed. So as expected, the smartphone looks just like the leaks we've seen prior to this, and as expected the device is wrapped in leather which LG say will tastefully age as you do. Lovely.
Rumours have been flying around for some time about LG developing a larger phablet variant of their upcoming flagship the LG G4, with many suggesting they'll be launching a new smartphone in the LG Stylus range, and today LG has unveiled all, but it's not what you think. Instead of a variant on the LG G4, LG has released an entirely new device, the LG G Stylo.
If there's one word on everybody's lips at the moment it's smartwatches and while the consumers are still making up their mind if a wearable smartphone is good value for money LG have gone one step further and patented a design for an actual smartphone that you can wear on your wrist...
Despite incidentally revealing the full device via an unsecured LG G4 microsite, LG is still going ahead with its plan of slowly teasing each aspect of their next flagship ahead of the official unveiling on April 28. The device is set to be fully unveiled on April 28 and this latest teaser shows that the device's new display will be even brighter and crisper.
This weekend a work-in-progress microsite for the LG G4 was discovered this weekend by Evan Blass, also known as @evleaks, and contained a huge selection of official press-renders and lifestyle images of the new phone. What we got to see this weekend is the phone from all angles including it's brand new real-leather clad back casing (which looks to be removable) and a carbon-fibre effect bezel around the front.
LG has been revealing small pieces of the specification sheet for their upcoming flagship smartphone, the G4, for a while now - this week they have unveiled the camera optics that can be expected on the highly anticipated handset.
LG have done a fantastic job of quelling leaks by occupying fans with their own official teasers of the device. This latest official teaser doesn't reveal much other than the devices camera, which LG has revealed with have an f/1.8 aperture. Which means the LG G4 will produce pretty great pictures in low-light. The device is set to be fully unveiled on April 28.
