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…)
Last week, LG announced the G Pro 2, the followup device to last year’s G Pro. On paper, the G Pro 2 is marked high enough to be a flagship device from LG, with a Snapdragon 800 processor, 5.9″ 1080p display, 4K video recording, and much more, but there was one feature that LG decided to save until a press event to really dive into.

Want a G Pad 8.3 from LG that can connect to Verizon’s 4G LTE network? According to the latest tweet from @evleaks, it’s definitely coming soon. In the tweet, Evan posted up a press render of the G Pad 8.3, complete with two Verizon logos and a healthy-sized 4G LTE logo on its backside. As we posted last month, the tablet stopped by the FCC with Verizon radios inside, so these renders lend more credence to that report. (more…)
For a limited time through Newegg, you can grab a brand new LG G Pad 8.3 for just $249.99.

The LG G2 from AT&T is receiving an update today that appears to do nothing more than prepare the phone for future updates. In other words, this is not the Kit Kat (Android 4.4) you have all been waiting for. The changelog simply states that the 15.4MB file is an enhancement “to support future updates,” while also bringing “Google enhancements.”
Maybe Android 4.4 is around the corner and LG needs to prepare the phone for arrival? Who knows at this point, but we have seen Kit Kat show up on Korean variants of LG’s 2013 flagship.
We’ll keep you updated as we learn more. (more…)
This evening, LG went ahead and unveiled its new tablet-phone hybrid, the G Pro 2. The phone is the follow-up to last year’s G Pro, which was largely thought of as a solid competitor to Samsung’s Galaxy Note line. With the 2, we’re looking at upgraded specs in all the right places, along with an insane 77.2 percent screen-to-frame ratio. (more…)
The LG G2 MINI is now official, thanks to a teasing of the device through LG’s Facebook page. The note says to “experience the MINI” on February 24 at Mobile World Congress (MWC). So yeah, that’s happening and will no longer be any sort of surprise. Well, we had an idea that the phone was coming after seeing a Bluetooth SIG filing, but this takes any guessing out of the name.
What about specs? The flagship G2 launched as a phone with some of the highest and most impressive specs any mobile phone had ever seen. But with phones labeled “Mini,” we tend to see low or mid-range devices that can be purchased on the cheap or in emerging markets. Rumors surrounding this G2 MINI suggest that it may have a qHD display. Let’s hope not. We would much rather LG go Sony’s route with the Z1 Compact, a smaller device that still rocks out with high-end specs (our hands-on). (more…)
