LG announced the G Pro 2 this morning, but decided to troll a little bit and not talk about any of the device’s specs or even post a picture. Reports of the device first showed up back on the 23rd of January, and instead of letting the industry continue to speculate, it appears LG wanted to make the device official. But again, LG gave us no specs or pictures. (more…)
Weren’t buying into last week’s purported image of a red Nexus 5 variant? Would a couple of pictures from a warehouse showing boxes and boxes of the same model in retail packaging help? If so, here you go. Thanks to pictures tweeted by @artyomstar, we are certainly leaning towards a bright red version of Google’s latest flagship phone to be on the way.
The images – included above and below – appear to show red Nexus 5s packaged up and ready for shipping, likely to retailers. There are labels for LG (the manufacturer), specifics on the storage size (these are 16GB units), a couple of IMEIs, and a potential country (GBR) that these specific boxes will be shipped off to.

It’s January 24, which means AT&T’s pre-orders for the LG G Flex are now live online. The device is priced at $299.99 on a new two year agreement, $694.99 off contract, or just $34.75 per month for 20 months with AT&T Next.
The internals for the G Flex would seemingly warrant such a high subsidiary, but don’t forget, the device’s 6.0″ curved P-OLED display is not Full HD. We had a hands-on with the G Flex at CES, and while it is a gorgeous device, pixels are quite visible from certain viewing angles. While seeing pixels may not be a deal breaker for a few of you, we still wanted to give a friendly heads up. (more…)
LG’s newest tablet, the G Pad 8.3, has hit the FCC this week on a course to Verizon’s 4G LTE network. The tablet made a quick stop, showing LTE radios that support bands 4 and 13 (Verizon’s bands) inside and model number VK810, while all other specs and dimensions of the tablet appear to be unchanged. The G Pad 8.3 is also available as a Google Play Edition device as WiFi-only right from Google Play for the price of $349.99. (more…)
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…)
With preorders for the LG G Flex on AT&T starting up this Friday, January 24, the carrier is pumping up awareness on YouTube, posting a walk-around of the unique device for all to see. The G Flex, when compared to other smartphones, is quite the attention grabber, sporting a 6″ HD Curved P-OLED display, while also housing top tier internal specs. (more…)
Being January of a new year, we have a lot of great things to look forward to; the biggest of all being new device releases from all of the top manufacturers in the game. Each company will more than likely bring its A-game, as Samsung continues to move further ahead of the rest of the Android OEM pack, something that we hope HTC, Motorola, and LG can counter.
For Samsung, we are more than likely going to see the Galaxy S5, a device that already has a ton of rumors and speculation surrounding it. Recent reports state that the phone should be announced in March with availability beginning in April. For specs, you can already guess that they are going to be the top tier of top tier on a smartphone.
As for HTC, the successor of the One device is also rumored for an unveiling in March, and is said to sport a dual-sensor camera. Whatever it does sport, HTC better bring it big time if they intend to remain competitive with Samsung and LG.
As you all know, we love Motorola’s Moto X device, so that might be the phone we are most looking forward to. As of right now, there are no real rumors surrounding the device, but we can hope that Motorola will continue its steps toward optimizing software and hardware, while also allowing customers to customize their devices. We think that’s what made the Moto X such a hit among the hardcore Android lovers.
So, let’s hear your thoughts down below. Which OEM’s next flagship offering are you most looking forward to?
At CES this year, LG made its upcoming G Flex the focal point. It was announced that the curved smartphone would be coming to all of the major carriers in the US sometime soon, but there were no hard dates. AT&T announced today that it will start taking pre-orders for the phone this Friday, January 24. (more…)
