LG are back and this time it's with another teaser for their LG G4. Sadly the phone is once again MIA, but in this latest video we get a look at the company's next-generation user interface, LG UX 4.0. This new user interface which will sit on top of Android Lollipop, is set to make life easier, and the phone's functions usable much quicker.
LG Display is the display arm of the company and has today taken to the Internet to share with everyone the shiny new 5.5-inch QHD LCD display which will be used in the company's upcoming device. Though it doesn't reveal much, it does show that the rumoured "slight curve," won't be coming to the new flagship.
In an invite to press, LG are preparing to announce their next flagship device at an event in New York, London, Paris, Singapore, and Istanbul at the end of April, with the first three being held on April 28, and the final two being held on April 29, though it's likely they'll be held simultaneously with the time difference pushing the Singapore and Istanbul events into the following day.
Earlier this year LG unveiled the LG Watch Urbane, their third Android Wear-powered smartwatch which offers a more refined, luxurious feel than LG's other smartwatches. The Watch Urbane is suited more for normal wear having more of a "dress feel" than LG's more sportier offerings. It's also a direct competitor to Apple's fashion conscious Apple Watch, undercutting its price too.
Earlier today an XDA member has leaked what they claim to be photos of the upcoming LG G4 Note, a variant of LG's upcoming flagship that's set to offer a more phablet experience than the G4 flagship. It's set to show a new direction for LG phones, as this particular device comes with a Galaxy Note-like stylus stored away at the back of the device. Little detail is actually known about the device, but the XDA user claims that it's still in development and despite software updates it's very buggy.
When you think of expensive smartwatches, you likely immediately think of the upcoming Apple Watch which can cost someone around £10,000 depending on the version they go for. But before MWC earlier this year, LG unveiled plans to launch a version of the G Watch R that was more fashion conscious and offered LTE / 4G connectivity. Though we expected it to be a little pricier than the LG G Watch, we didn't expect it to be this expensive.
Another pre-finalised press image has surfaced online courtesy of @OnLeaks and Nowhereelse.fr showing the phone from the front, behind, and the sides, and it this leak is anything to go by, it's going to be an absolutely stunning device.
Though we're yet to get any solid details about the LG G4 a press render of the supposed flagship has made its way online and it seems, if accurate, the LG G4 may take some design cues from the LG G Flex. The leak comes out of @OnLeaks, a relatively new (at least to me) Twitter account who has an early rendering of the device.
The LG G4 could be totally different from the LG G3 suggests LG's Cho Jun-ho With the LG G4 rumoured to be unveiled later than usual...
I guess LG couldn't wait a couple more days for MWC as today they've unveiled another version of their luxury smartwatch which they first revealed earlier this month, the LG Watch Urbane. It runs on a new version of their WebOS proprietary software, and will come with 4G capabilities.
If you've been keeping your eyes peeled for news on the LG G Flex2 then you've come to the right place as today not only has a new video surfaced for the banana shaped device, release plans have also been revealed as well as the price for the device, which is surprisingly more affordable than its predecessor.
Could LG be announcing something big at MWC next month? Though rumour has suggested that LG might be saving the LG G4 announcement until later in the year, today they've unveiled four new mid-range handsets, making me think they're clearing the way for something big!
Earlier this week a UK retailer popped up a pre-order page for the LG Watch Urbane that the Korean company unveiled on Monday, and that very same pre-order page also included a price-tag for the more fashion-conscious smartwatch at £299.00 making it the most expensive Android Wear smartwatch to date.
Smartphones, no matter the manufacturer, all come in one uniform candy bar-like shape. There's nothing overly unique about the form factor of the iPhone 6 compared to the Samsung Galaxy S5, the same goes for the HTC One M8 and the Moto X, and it doesn't look like its going to change any time soon according to Ken Hong, LG’s Director of Global Corporate Communications.
Next month sees the arrival of the Mobile World Congress where we're expecting to see several announcements from some of the big smartphone manufacturers such as HTC with their rumoured HTC One M9, and Samsung, with their rumoured Samsung Galaxy S6, but this year we might not see an appearance from LG as it doesn't want to battle with the likes of Samsung and HTC and instead wants to launch in April, a time where smartphone releases are a little scarce.
