According to AT&T, its version of the LG G Flex will receive an update to Android 4.4.2 “Kit Kat” tomorrow.
The update includes a new full-screen mode (Immersive), restyled notification and navigation areas, battery performance improvements, and “enhanced” processing speed. You should also find some of the other goodies that came with Kit Kat, like cloud printing, Tap & Pay for making secure NFC payments, the ability to choose a default SMS app, emoji, and prettier music controls from the lock screen.
The update is 686MB in size, and can be grabbed by going into Settings>General>About phone>Software update>Update now. (more…)
News is piling up for the G3 from LG, the company’s upcoming 2014 flagship device. Today, The Verge leaked a picture of the device’s retail packaging, while also confirming one hefty piece of info - the device’s display resolution. LG already once confirmed that an upcoming handset would feature the monster resolution, but after today’s report, there is little doubt in our minds that it is the G3. (more…)
Posted by the one and only @evleaks, a render of an upcoming device from LG called the isai FL has leaked before making its way to Japan. While we don’t usually focus on too many international devices, we can’t help but drool just a little bit at the design of this phone. (more…)
After a picture began circulating the web this weekend, featuring the first reported shot of the upcoming LG G3, the company has now confirmed to UberGizmo that its next device will indeed sport a 2560 x 1440 display. (more…)
Thanks to a UA Profile (UAProf) taken from Sprint’s own servers, it appears that the LG G3, the OEM’s upcoming flagship device, has had its specs outed just a tad early. As we can see from the huge amount of text, the device’s specs are pretty much all known, including its display size, processor, amount of RAM, rear-facing camera resolution, and more. (more…)
A screenshot is making the rounds today, reportedly taken from a device said to be running a new UI which will be featured on the upcoming G3 from LG. Since both HTC and Samsung have opted for flatter designs, it makes sense that LG would also find this look appealing. Not to say that they are copying anybody, as the “flat” look has been taking over the entire tech world as of late. (more…)
For whatever reason, the Kit Kat update for the LG G2 on AT&T left out Android 4.4′s Tap & Pay settings menu, even though the device should have no problem using Host Card Emulation to make mobile payments. There are work-arounds, for sure, but most involve sideloading hacked Google Wallet apks or flashing a custom ROM. For those who were expecting the functionality out of the gate, life has been a bit frustrating.
Things are changing today, thanks to an update that AT&T is pushing to the G2. The changelog is minimal, but does say specifically that it involves “updates to Google+ and Google Wallet.” At least one reader has already confirmed that Tap & Pay is now working. (more…)
According to a new report out of the UK, LG’s Android Wear-powered G Watch is set to launch in July, priced at lower than $300. While under $300 does sound nice, that could still mean $299 or $249, so it is hard to get overly excited for LG’s
