LG Bringing KnockCode to More LG Phones Via Future Firmware Update

Ever since it was introduced with the LG G2, the KnockOn tap-to-wake software that LG patented has been a major focal point of its OEM software. LG even improved its own design by announcing KnockCode alongside the G Pro 2, which will launch later this year. Apparently, demand was so high for creating a personalized knocking pattern to unlock your device that LG is bringing it to more of their older devices.  (more…)

LG G2 Mini to Reportedly Launch Overseas in March, Won’t Feature Any Specs to Write Home About

LG began to tease the G2 Mini earlier this month, but that’s as far as they got – just teasing. There were no confirmed specs or release dates, so the industry only had speculation to work with. Today, reported specs are being confirmed by overseas sources, with LG apparently revealing that the device will launch overseas in March. (more…)

LG’s G Pro 2 Has Optical Image Stabilization “Plus”… and Stuff

One-upsmanship is one word for a wonderfully vague press release highlighting two features of the upcoming G Pro 2. Another is desperation, but I’ll leave it to you to decide which.

One, dubbed “OIS plus,” is an enhanced version of the optical image stabilization found in the G2. LG said this new solution improves upon the original by pairing better hardware with software that eliminates tremors, resulting in a smoother image. The new setup also enhances low-light performance, the company said.  (more…)

Report: LG G Pro 2 With 3GB RAM and 6-inch Display Coming to MWC

According to Korean media, LG will introduce the G Pro 2 next month at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona. As you may recall, they introduced the original G Pro (“Optimus” G Pro) in February of last year, so if we’re talking yearly cycles of phones, the time frame certainly matches up. Last year’s G Pro sort of skated under the radar, even though it featured a 5.5-inch 1080p display and was mostly a beast in terms of specs. Then again, LG has almost always tried to pack in top-of-the-line specs, yet has struggled to grab much of the Android market share.  (more…)
