Playing up the hype that will lead to its unveiling this month, LG is little by little divulging features of its upcoming G Pro 2 smartphone. This time the Korean manufacturer is focusing on its camera with a feature that it simply calls OIS Plus.
The LG G Flex is officially stateside. Via AT&T, you can now pick one up, and enjoy the 6-inch curved OLED screen for yourself. If you’re curious about the curved device, you’re reading this review as a means to decide if it’s the right one for you. Certainly polarizing, the G Flex stands out in a crowd, but does it do so in the right way? We find out.
While LG has officially confirmed the existence of the G Pro 2, we have so far no idea what this upcoming smartphone will look like. That is, until now. A pair of photos has just been leaked that show what is supposedly the G Pro 2, revealing a mix of features from LG's own lineup as well as its chief rival.
The LG G Flex has arrived domestically, and we have our hands-on of the newest from LG. Curved, big, and oddly comfortable, the G Flex brings a new thinking to mobile. Our initial reaction is one of curiosity, but will the curve make a difference in how we use a smartphone?
According to the International Data Corporation or IDC, global smartphone shipments have reached a staggering 1,004.2 million units in 2013, a few million short of its forecast of 1,010.4 million units. This represents another milestone in the smartphone industry, which has grown by 38.4 percent from the 725.3 million units shipped in 2012.
LG has just released its last financial report for 2013, covering both the final quarter and the full-year earnings. While LG's financial status has been positive overall, it was still marred by some bad news on all fronts. Unsurprisingly, the biggest increase came from its smartphones.
Mastering the art of saying nothing about something, LG has confirmed that the LG G Pro 2 is a real thing. Details are still on the vague side but the Korean manufacturer does point to a February announcement for its next big device.
The LG G Pad 8.3 may be headed for Verizon. According to several FCC filings, it seems the device will be getting some connectivity, utilizing the various LTE bands supported for Verizon devices. Though not mentioned by name, the satellite details seem to point right at the G Pad.
LG is said to be working on a follow-up of sorts to their G2. Not quite the G3 successor, this one will be the G Pro 2, a beefed up version of the current flagship G2. We’re also said to get a peek at it this year at MWC, meaning the G3 will probably have to wait.
