The LG G3 on Verizon is getting Lollipop! It is! Look, we have an official document saying as much. It’s also dated today! It doesn’t say April 1!
In all seriousness, the timing of Verizon going live with update details makes perfect sense. Over the weekend, we told you on Twitter (you should follow us there for nuggets of info like this) that you could plug-in your G3 and update via Verizon’s Software Upgrade Assistant. Many of you took us up on that and have been running Android 5.0 for a couple of days, while others were slightly confused by our half-cryptic Tweet.
Either way, the over-the-air (OTA) version of the update is going to start today. As expected, it’s a big one. (more…)
Ummm, well, this is the LG G4. The phone was supposed to be officially revealed for the first time on April 28, buuuuuuut, a microsite set up for the phone was leaked yesterday and its contents are now everywhere on the web. That means that the phone in all sorts of forms, including versions with leather backs (and butt seams), is ready for you to see. We also know more about some of its specs, like the removable 3,000mAh battery, included SD card slot, a “color spectrum sensor,” and its IPS “Quantum” display.
Yeah, we know a lot.
Ready for it? (more…)
Earlier this week, the Moto G Google Play Edition began receiving its update to Android 5.1. You probably thought, “Well, what about the others, like the Ones, Galaxy S4, and Z Ultra?” Don’t worry, most of them are now receiving the update as well. (more…)
After teasing the LG G4’s F1.8 lens through a short video yesterday, LG took the time this evening to officially announce the camera module. It’s a 16MP camera with that F1.8 aperture, the “widest aperture camera developed” for a phone by LG Innotek. LG said that the camera module will go into mass production this week and will be unveiled for the first time to consumers in the LG G4 on April 28.
Through the large aperture, the camera module should be able to receive 80% more light over the camera in the LG G3, which is impressive, since the LG G3’s camera was one of the best of last year. We are talking better low light shots and less blur in those action shots, my friends. (more…)
LG announced it will be seeding out 4,000 G4 units prior to launch through a new Consumer Experience campaign, taking place in 14 markets, including the United States. According to the announcement, for 30 days, recipients of the G4 will be able to test the phone, check out the camera, play with the new display, and basically give feedback on any and everything they like/dislike about the device, straight to LG.

LG popped off another teaser this morning for its upcoming flagship, the G4. In the video, a lens floats over a city, magnifying life, showing vibrant colors, before flashing out to a hint at the camera that will be included in the phone. It follows that up by officially inviting you to the unveiling of the LG G4 on April 28. (more…)
On last week’s episode of the DL Show, we told you to get ready for a steady stream of feature teases from LG for their upcoming G4 handset. Earlier in the week, LG announced details for the device’s new 5.5-inch QHD LCD display, which we assumed was only the first of many announcements to come. You see, LG (and Samsung too) likes to slowly tease select features that will be included in their new phones in the weeks leading up to an unveiling, many of which end up painting a picture of the phone in detail before it becomes official.
Last night, they continued that trend by by releasing a video of LG’s new UX 4.0, the 4th version of their custom Android skin that will be featured in the G4. (more…)
Well, we now know at least one official feature of the upcoming LG G4 – a brand new, 5.5-inch QHD LCD panel. LG announced this evening that they achieved a “quantum jump” in color gamut and brightness with this new panel that also consumes less power, is incredibly thin, and shows improved touch function.
