We did bring to our viewers notice about the rumours of LG building a mini version of the LG G2 very soon. Not willing to leave us hanging any longer, LG has finally acknowledged the smartphone, posting the above teaser image to its Facebook page and sharing the news that it will be showing the phone off at MWC, on Monday, February 24.
Obviously no specifications can be drawn from the above image but one obvious comparison to it’s bigger brother – The LG G2 reveals that this phone shall be smaller than any mini we’ve seen so far! Comparing scales from the image, the G2 mini comes down to around 4.5inches tall.
Are you excited for this G2 Mini?!
The KitKat 4.4.2 Android update has started rolling out to G2 devices in Korea, an anonymous tipster at PhoneArena was seen quoting.
Justifying the most recent version of Android, the ART run time is present and ready to use on this version. ART as you know, has the advantage of pre-loading application bytecode from install instead of loading on demand when the user opens an app, resulting in as much as a 50% speed increase.
Are you waiting impatiently for this update to roll out to your country?!
While rumors will still developing for the LG G Pro 2 to be released during MWC, the manufacturer himself took the stage and announced on their social page that they indeed would be releasing the G Pro 2.
According to LG, a 13MP OIS Plus camera will be placed on the back of the phablet. As a reminder, the LG G2 also featured a 13MP shooter with optical image stabilization which did a great job. Apparently, according to LG, the G Pro 2 will have an improved stabilization system, dubbed OIS Plus, but it will build upon the already existing OIS on the G2.
We’ll update you as an when it happens at MWC.
Late Sunday evening, an almost confirming news of the “successor to the LG G Pro” being the G Pro 2 was let open to the media. The successor to the LG (Optimus) G Pro, it’s nearly 100% likely that we will be seeing it at Mobile World Congress, 2014, an event to be held from February 24-27 in Barcelona.
LG G Pro was undoubtedly a great device that sported the thinnest bezel amongst it’s league of devices with top notch hardware which was then taken ahead by the G2. LG treats this phablet the same way Samsung sees it’s Note line of devices, so let’s see what the G Pro2 has in store for us, any guesses!?
Well this is the first time LG users might be seeing some real updates on their phones. But hey, don’t get excited yet, the YouTube video that shows the phone running on KitKat doesn’t look exciting a bit.
There are a few changes to the UI of the LG G2 with the Android 4.4. update, but they’re all very minor. The icons in the status bar are all the same light grey color, for example. LG employes a fullscreen mode that gets rid of the on-screen buttons for a specific set of apps.
The KitKat version 4.4.2 started arriving in Korea since December 2013. Are you still waiting for KitKat to arrive on your phone?
The LG G2 was according to us, the Android Handset that pushed the bar for manufacturers in 2013. ePrice says it has spotted a listing in Taiwan which suggests that LG is preparing to launch a gold edition of its flagship G2 smartphone.
No word on fficial prices yet, but the 32 GB version of the golden G2 will supposedly retail for around $562 (16,900 TWD), whilst the 16 GB model will be sold just a tad cheaper at $500 (14,900 TWD), an identical price scheme as the existing colors.
Golden handsets have got a persona of their own which make consumers line up since they always are produced in a limited number. As much as I like the LG G2, I can’t say that I find this a particularly good look.
What do you have to say? Is this too much bling for a phone to handle?
While it might’ve been the reason for the biggest show-stopping feature of 2013 on the Apple iPhone 5s, it really hasn’t taken off on Android Phones. Although, HTC tried it first with their HTC One Max, it really didn’t prove to be that great a usable feaure considering the overall form factor of the device itself.
A trusted Source reports that LG is testing a prototype with a Fingerprint Scanner. This Fingerprint scanner on the G3 is expected to be a “swipe” type. In addition to this fingerprint scanner, the G3 may also sport a 2K display and octa-core SoC. Also, the G3 is expected to launch sooner than expected, could be this January too!
LG’s HomeChat technology, combined with the popular mobile messenger Line, will let users send simple messages to their appliances – provided these are smart devices – from a variety of mobile devices and computers. Line is available on Android, iOS, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, Nokia Asha, Windows and OS X, while the HomeChat service will take advantage of a Natural Language Processing (NLP) technology.
Smart Refrigerators, Smart Ovens, Smart Vacuums and Washing Machines would be supported.
Multiple reports came from South Korea that suggest that bot only is the company LG working on bringing a new G3 this upcoming MWC but two wearable techs too!
For the G3 we expect a better processor, a better sharper 2k display and a better faster camera – again, all of this from rumours. Alongwith it, the company is rumoured to bring a G Health which is a fitness tracking device and apparently LG’s take on the existing Nike Fuelband. The other wearable tech being a galaxy gear like wearable watch with an alleged flexible display.
If we are lucky, we will get to learn some during CES in January!
It’s holiday season again and that time of the year when there are a lot of gifts being wrapped. Let’s take a look back and see what this year meant for the smartphone industry and which one’s made it big. Here is a list of Top 5 Smartphones for 2013!
1. Apple iPhone 5s
While Apple would not have won a medal in redesigning this much similar-looking iPhone, it surely won all the attention, primarily because of it’s neatly tucked fingerprint scanner – a first on any commercially available mobile phone.
The 64-bit A7 processor is logically a major upgrade over the predecessor, but the bigger change is the M7 co-processor, which picks up data from various sensors even while the phone may be asleep. The iPhone 5s is everything you love, only much better.
2. Samsung Galaxy Note 3
The Galaxy Note 3 is the pinnacle of Samsung’s line of large phones. It’s Samsung’s best effort by far. The Note line of devices brought phablets (i.e., large-screened phones) to the masses, and none is more accessible than the Note 3.
Samsung managed to reduce the device’s footprint while increasing the size of the screen to a whopping 5.7 inches. The Note 3 is also thinner, lighter, and classier than ever, thanks to the faux leather back and tasteful chrome accents.
3. Google Nexus 5
Google bought a treat and well needed upgrade to it’s Nexus 4 and man does this phone offer the best bang for the buck! Historically the Nexus devices bring flagship level hardware at rock bottom prices but with the Nexus 5 you get even better.
he Nexus 5 packs in a bigger screen this time around – 5-inch Full HD IPS+, with Gorilla Glass 3.And yes, how can we forget Google’s promise of instant OS updates being rolled out for Nexus smartphones and tablets?
4. LG G2
The LG G2 is by far one of the best effort devices in terms of hardware and innovation throughout. The 5.2-inch display is by far one of the best that’s currently available on any available smartphone at 424 ppi.
The power key sits just below the camera at the back, with the designers assuming that a finger will naturally reach that spot when you hold the phone conventionally.
5. Nokia Lumia 1020
If you are extremely concerned about picture quality on your phone and need a camera replacement then here is a great option. Although you need to be a quick adapter to a new and quite-friendly operating system, the Lumia 1020 snaps photos like a boss!
With a 41 MP sensor with OIS, It offers full manual control over every aspect of creating a photograph such as shutter speed, ISO, exposure compensation, white balance and even offers the ability to manually focus the lens.
