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.
Although Android 4.4 is now out, only the newly launched Nexus 5 officially has this latest Android version. That, of course, hasn't stopped the Android community from immediately getting Android 4.4 onto other devices that may never receive an official update. This growing roster of older devices now includes LG's previous flagship, the LG Optimus G.
The folks from LG have been busy sending out multiple press invites for the same event. That being their August 7th unveiling of the first smartphone to be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 series quad-core processor. The upcoming LG G2 is quite the impressive looking handset, and their latest press invite going out today confirms leaks regarding backside touch controls.
We've all heard it at this point, but LG has finally confirmed it - the LG G2 will be the Optimus G's successor, stripping away the Optimus name while kicking off what will be an eventual series of "premium" handsets that fall under the G branding. In addition, LG hints at 4:3 handsets, saying they will be branded until the term "Vu:".
Today we've learned some excellent news regarding two impressive phones over on AT&T from LG Electronics. The Optimus G flagship from last year, as well as the recently released Optimus G Pro 5.5-inch powerhouse have both been hacked in the price department. In light of LG announcing the G2 coming in August, AT&T is doing a nice summer sale.
Today, LG has officially unveiled one of their truly first fully waterproof and dustproof smartphones, the LG Optimus GJ. All the details regarding this new handset were revealed in Taiwan, although we don't expect it to be headed to the states anytime soon. Just like Samsung's GALAXY S 4 Active, LG's flagship device (from last year) now has one too.
The folks from Consumer Reports have just crowned a new king in the smartphone world. The impressive new Samsung GALAXY S 4, which has only been available about a month, has already knocked down the previous top pick. The LG Optimus G has held the position for quite some time due to the specs, features, and price all bundled into one, but Samsung changed it all.
The folks from LG have a few smartphone in the works, and today we're getting some hints and details on what is expected to be the successor to last years popular Optimus G flagship. Yes, they've already announced and released the Optimus G Pro, but apparently a super-thin and impressive Optimus G2 is coming later this year to rival the Galaxy S 4 and beyond with some never seen features.
We had recently began hearing reports of an update from those sporting an LG Optimus G with AT&T, however as of today, that update has been officially announced. The update is bringing Jelly Bean and is rolling-out as of today, April 4. Those with an Optimus G will be getting Android 4.1.2 along with a few additional perks.
LG originally launched the Optimus G Pro smartphone in Korea on February 21 and as of today, they have announced a new sales milestone. It seems LG has sold more than 500,000 handsets since the launch. Or more specifically, LG has said they have reached that milestone in 40 days time.
