LG G4 may go metal, but cede flagship crown to new device

LG G4 may go metal, but cede flagship crown to new device

Now that we’re through the MWC hump, it’s time to shift focus. We’ve got our Galaxy S6 and S6 edge, and HTC gave us the One M9 as expected. Motorola let loose a really good mid-range device, the Moto E with LTE, ahead of MWC, so that leaves LG to bring us a new Android handset. We’d previously heard they’d hold off on announcing a G4 until after MWC, but now we’re hearing they may also have a new lineup that’s even better than the G series.

LG G Watch R Review: best in class

LG G Watch R Review: best in class

With the LG G Watch R here at the start of the year 2015, we've got very little competition in smartwatches. There are several Android Wear watches made by top-tier brands and a few smart watches made by brands we've not ended up sticking with for long. But for now, it's a war with hardware. LG G Watch R's body is unique - not as universally appealing as the stark, cut-back body of the Motorola Moto 360, and not as heavy-hitting as the Samsung Gear S. Instead we've got LG doing what LG does best - making a device that stands out amongst its peers and sits comfortably on your person.

LG rumored to discontinue G Pro line in favor of G series

LG rumored to discontinue G Pro line in favor of G series

Although LG's earning and performance didn't take a big hit, at least compared to its dearest rival Samsung, the Korean company is still girding up its loins and focusing its resources on its big winners. Unfortunately, that usually means letting go of some models, even if they be well-loved previously. In LG's case, it will be the "Pro" line that will be getting the axe, with LG reportedly not interested in a G Pro 3 next year as two of its premium lines start converging in terms of features.

HTC One M9 details tipped to dump the UltraPixel

HTC One M9 details tipped to dump the UltraPixel

It may be time for HTC to get rid of the UltraPixel name - and the technology - if today's anonymous sources are to be believed. The rest of the specifications shared this afternoon aren't all that difficult to believe. Just boosts in resolution, screen size, and processor power. The big difference here is in the change in camera - which anyone could have predicted, really. We're crossing our fingers that HTC has something more exiting planned than what basically amounts to a generational kick in the pants.

LG G3 to lay claim to first Android 5.0 update

LG G3 to lay claim to first Android 5.0 update

When Android Lollipop was first announced, many OEMs were quick to rally behind the new Android version but Korean manufacturers LG and Samsung weren't as quick. But although LG was one of the last to voice out support for Android 5.0, it has now seemingly turned the tables on everyone else. The company has announced that its LG G3 flagship, still one of the better smartphones this year, will be receiving the much awaited update this week, beating everyone else in the race to be the first to get Android 5.0 on an OEM device.
