Verizon’s LG G2 to feature exclusive wireless charging capabilities

without comments

lg-g2-wireless-charging

With LG having remained mum on the subject of wireless charging when they launched the LG G2 last week, Verizon has stepped up and claim that the Verizon-branded LG G2 features wireless charging exclusively to them, most likely only in the US.

The LG G2 pre-order page on Verizon’s website shows off their own branded LG G2 and mentions that it features wireless charging exclusively, it also shows a redesigned rear for the Verizon LG G2 which is more than likely a confirmation to their claim. It remains to be seen whether this exclusivity extends only to the US or globally, especially since wireless charging is yet to catch on in the mass market. The LG G2 features a speedy 2.2GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon SoC, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and a 13MP camera with OIS, to name but a few and aims to steal some market share away from the likes of Samsung.

We’d love to hear your thoughts on wireless charging, voice your opinion below!

Ubuntu Edge gets price dropped one last time to $695

without comments

Canonical’s next brainchild, the Ubuntu Linux powered Ubuntu Edge smartphone, has seen quite a response through its Indiegogo campaign, but with only two weeks to go they have a long way to go before their funding goal is reached.

The Ubuntu Edge campaign has seen a remarkable response from not only the general public, but as of recently big corporations too after Bloomberg LP made a $80,000 contribution for 115 unique Edge devices as well as training, among other things. Today, Canonical announced that they would be slashing the Ubuntu Edge’s price to $695 for the remainder of the campaign, down from $775.

The move is widely being considered a step to gain more funding, as over $23 million is still needed within the next 14 days for the Edge to succeed. Canonical, however, says that lower manufacturing costs are to thank.

LG today finally officially launched the successor to last year’s LG Optimus and this year’s LG Optimus G Pro in the form of the LG G2, looks like the company will keep it short and sweet. The newly announced LG G2 has leaked quite a few times before and today some rumours were finally confirmed and LG may very well have what it takes to take on the likes of Samsung.

The LG G2 was launched with quite a few surprises despite being leaked multiples times and LG having launched plenty of accessories and other accompanyments for the device. The LG G2 packs quite a punch and features a 5.2-inch 1080p IPS touch display, a 2.3GHz quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM, either 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, a 13MP rear facing camera with OIS and a 2.1MP front facing camera. The LG G2 features a 3,000mAh battery to keep it up and running for quite a while and will launch with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean right out of the box although an Android 4.3 update is likely in the works. The G2 features rear places volume keys as well as a power/unlock key, apparently to make the awkward movements with such a large device a little more bearable.

The LG G2 is set to launch in a wide variety of global markets over the next two months with the US’ four main carriers in on the count. Pricing is still a mystery, but it is likely to cost $199 on a two year contract.

The LG G2 is set to launch this week and despite the fact that LG has already announced boatloads of accessories for the device as well as ringtones and more, there are still quite a few questions surrounding the other South Koreans’ upcoming flagship. NowwhereElse allegedly got hand of one of their manuals which had quite a lot to say about the device.

Earliers rumours of the LG G2 stated that there would be a fingerprint reader between the two volume buttons of the device, but the manual suggests that it is in fact just a power/unlock button. The manual also stated that the LG G2 will feature a removable battery, 2,610mAh in size to be exact, as well as a microSD card slot for memory expansion as well as surprisingly a nano-SIM slot, meaning that the LG G2 will be the fourth smartphone to feature such a slot, with the Apple iPhone 5 and recently announced Moto X sharing the feature. Rumours suggest that the LG G2 will also pack a 5.2-inch 1080p display in addition to a 13MP rear camera. The G2 is set to be unveiled in two days time.

The LG G2 will feature rear buttons because it is apparently too thin to feature them on the sides, the side bezels are allegedly extremely narrow. Whatever else we need to know, it’s sure to be revealed within the coming days. Are you excited to see what LG has been up to? Let us know below!

New leaked images confirm Moto X will be third ever device to host a nano SIM slot

without comments

Just a day before Motorola, now a Google company, is set to launch the illustrious Moto X in New York City, a new feature has been unraveled, something that may upset some prospective buyers; the upcoming uber customizable Moto X will feature support only for nano SIMs, becoming the third ever smartphone to do so.

The Moto X has come a long way since it was first rumoured as the Motorola X Phone, at the time it was marked as the Jesus phone, the ultimate smartphone, but almost a year later, it’s old news. Leaks continue to heighten as the device is set to be officially launched tomorrow, August 1 in New York City. The Moto X will not only join the Apple iPhone 5 and ASUS PadFone Infinity to become the third smartphone ever to feature the technology, but it will also irritate some prospective buyer who had just gotten used to the idea of a micro SIM. The Moto X is also set to feature pixel oversampling in its camera, but instead of compressing 7 pixels into one like the Nokia Lumia 1020, it will compress 4 pixels into 1, which still isn’t that bad.

The Moto X is set to become the first ever mass produced smartphone that is made in the US and with its loads of customization options, it’s likely to become a hot product in the midrange sectors. As it’s likely to remain a US-only device, the rest of the world will have to settle for a Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini or HTC One Mini.
