Nexus 5 aimed at LG: G2-inspired, near-borderless display

Nexus 5 aimed at LG: G2-inspired, near-borderless display

The next device in line for Google's Nexus smartphone lineup would (once again) appear to belong to LG if Vietnam-based media reports are correct. Straight from author Cuhip of Tinhte, the same fellow who brought on the X Phone tour video leak well before the rest of the world earlier this year, comes word of an LG-made Nexus 5 quite similar to a report SlashGear published earlier this month. The big difference here is the (unofficial) confirmation of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 800, previously suggested to be a bit too expensive to exist in a Nexus 5 would that it were to keep the pricing structure of the Nexus 4.

LG Optimus L9 Review (T-Mobile)

LG Optimus L9 Review (T-Mobile)

Most of us know that when it comes to smartphones, it’s a constant struggle to find the right balance between power, looks, and affordability, with affordability normally losing out in the end. The problem most of the time is that the affordable phones don’t always look the best and typically don’t have the best hardware under the hood. If you want a phone that looks sleek and performs great, you’re going to have to shell out the big bucks, right? LG is attempting to challenge that idea with the Optimus L9, a new handset at T-Mobile that comes with the very manageable price tag of $79.99. The question is: can this phone deliver the goods at a budget price, or do the savings mean that the phone ultimately disappoints in other areas?

LG Nexus 4 leaks in apparently official press shot [Update: Is it fake?]

What's believed to be a promotional image of the LG Nexus 4 bearing Google's Nexus branding has leaked, ahead of the smartphone's expected launch next week. The image, courtesy of tipster evleaks, fits with previous leaked photos of the handset in the wild, though that last sighting didn't include the bold "nexus" logo across the upper rear of the phone. Update: Not so fast! This might not be as legit as we hoped.

Sony and LG ditch phones in Jelly Bean and ICS upgrade cycle

Sony and LG ditch phones in Jelly Bean and ICS upgrade cycle

Android fragmentation, what Android fragmentation? Oh, there it is. Sony and LG are surprising few but disappointing plenty with confirmation that several devices apiece won't be getting new versions of the OS. For Sony, it's the Xperia arc S and Xperia mini pro which have reached the end of the update line, with no chance of an official Jelly Bean release. However, the news is arguably even worse for some LG users, who still aren't even on Ice Cream Sandwich.

LG Optimus True HD LTE official in Germany

LG Optimus True HD LTE official in Germany

The LG Optimus LTE P936 made a suitably leaky appearance last month which seemed to be bound for Europe, and now LG has confirmed it. The company will be bringing the handset to German carriers as the LG Optimus True HD LTE. Why “True HD”? The 720p screen on the phone uses a full RGB matrix unlike current AMOLED 720p screens which use a PenTile matrix. LG hammered this point home back at CES 2012 for the LG Spectrum, and looks like the marketing isn’t letting up even for this variant.

LG teaming with Mozilla’s Boot2Gecko mobile OS for device release

It appears that this year will be no exception to the rule that Mobile World Congress is one of the biggest venues for device releases all year long, and today's announcements are certainly not lacking in the LG department. The manufacturer behind such future products as the LG Optimus Vu and Optimus 3D Cube are being reported today to be amongst Mozilla's launch partners for their own web-based mobile operating system Boot2Gecko. This system is the same one we gave a very alpha hands-on to earlier this month - and the idea that it'd be ready to launch this year is, for lack of a better word, unbelievable.

LG Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update schedule dropped

LG Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich update schedule dropped

The folks at LG have let known today what and when they plan on doing with their active line of smart devices in regards to the newest Google-made mobile operating system Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. What they've got on the books as of today is a "global upgrade schedule" beginning in the second and third quarters of 2012, followed then by a "global roll out." There is a list, of course, which we're hoping LG will follow implicitly, as they promise that they're "taking all possible measure to offer a smooth OS upgrade in a timely manner." On the other hand, they do not that exact start dates very well could vary by market as each country, carrier, and smartphone model have different requirements.
