LG Optimus G Pro revealed with beastly Full HD display

This week the folks at LG have revealed their fair share of smartphones, not the least of them being the LG Optimus G Pro, a device we've seen several peeks of before. This device works with a massive 5.5-inch display with Full HD resolution and a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor. This device will be unleashed in South Korea first and has not yet been confirmed for Europe or the United States.

LG Optimus G Pro+ spotted with extra massive display

LG Optimus G Pro+ spotted with extra massive display

The LG Optimus G was ushered in with a bang last year, bringing on the first look we'd had at the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor - and here in 2013 it's looking like the face of the device is about to get a whole lot larger. With the original Optimus G having a very likely large amount of sales cannibalized by the Google Nexus 4, it's no wonder that LG is likely thinking about bringing not one, but two new models to the market here in the first half of the year. The first reveal was the LG Optimus G Pro with a lovely 5-inch display - now it's time to get even larger.

This massive set of events with global reach begin in the week of the 24th of February and SlashGear will be there all week, so you can bet that whatever LG brings to the stage, we'll be right on top of! Last year's reveal at around this time brought on more phones - and more important phones - than at any time the whole rest of the year!

Predictions for Google’s Android in 2013: Freedom for All!

Predictions for Google’s Android in 2013: Freedom for All!

At the start of 2012 the folks at Google were seeing their beloved Android mobile operating system being used on more iPhone clones than we'd care to discuss - near the turn-over to 2013, big manufacturers like Samsung and HTC have made their own hero lines the likes of which Android has never known. What we saw in 2012 was recognition of the model that has worked for Apple extremely well since all the way back in 2007 - a focus on the ecosystem rather than on the individual specifications of any one device. This will continue in a very big way through 2013 with manufacturers holding up a single torch - like the Motorola RAZR brand - to keep themselves lit up brightly.

Nexus 4 T-Mobile Review

Nexus 4 T-Mobile Review

The difference between the Google Play Nexus 4 and the T-Mobile Nexus 4 is neither in the hardware nor in the software, but in the cost and agreement you'll be making with T-Mobile - but that doesn't mean we can't give some more time to Google's own smartphone hero for Android 4.2 Jelly Bean - for science! First be sure to take a peek at our original full Nexus 4 review as done by our own Vincent Nguyen, then have another dive in with the slight differences between it and the T-Mobile edition - must be something for the massive difference in price, right?

LG: LTE in the Nexus 4 is an evolutionary leftover

LG: LTE in the Nexus 4 is an evolutionary leftover

The LTE modem discovered in the Nexus 4 is an evolutionary leftover akin to an appendix or tailbone, LG has explained, dashing any hopes of a firmware update unlocking future 4G capabilities. Interest was raised when teardowns of the latest Nexus smartphone revealed it had an LTE-capable modem, despite being billed as 3G only; as LG told TechRadar, however, that's just the vestigial remnants of the more advanced - and more expensive - device the Nexus 4 was based upon.

Samsung Galaxy Note II hands-on with quad-core gaming

Samsung Galaxy Note II hands-on with quad-core gaming

The Samsung Galaxy Note II is coming to a carrier near you soon, and one fact that seems to have slipped under the radar for many is that it comes with not just a massive display, but a gaming-ready quad-core Exynos processor as well. Samsung's own Exynos quad-core architecture inside this phablet unit makes for a fluid experience only otherwise available on Android with the LG Optimus G or the LG Nexus 4, both of which use Qualcomm's quad-core processor Snapdragon S4 Pro. Let's have a peek at what Samsung's double-punch of both the chassis and the chipset made by them for you.

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: October 16, 2012

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: October 16, 2012

Welcome to Tuesday evening everyone. Today was a pretty big day as far as news goes, with Apple sending out invites to an upcoming event, which is where we're assuming the company will announce the iPad Mini. Not one to be outdone, Microsoft finally gave us some substantial details on Surface today (including information on pre-orders), and Samsung was right there to put its line up of new Windows 8 PCs and tablets up for pre-order as well.

AT&T LG Optimus G Review

AT&T LG Optimus G Review

With the LG Optimus G, this OEM brings on its most powerful device by a long shot, with Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor inside and a 4.7-inch TrueHD IPS+ LCD display up front, this running on AT&T's 4G LTE network here in the USA. What we're seeing here is a device that's ever so slightly confused in its identity - with more power than it knows what to do with in a device that looks and feels fabulous, but is just a bit bigger and more slippery than a normal-sized human being will be comfortable holding. Perhaps this combination of looks and processing power are enough to convince us that LG has suddenly become as much of a top-tier contender in the USA as Samsung and Apple?

SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: October 15, 2012

Welcome back to Monday everyone - we've got a heaping helping of news to recap, so let's dive right in. Today we found out that Apple's manufacturing partnership with Samsung may not last much longer, and that the Google Nexus 7 might just be the best-selling Android tablet ever (which, given its immense popularity, doesn't surprise us in the least). One Walmart store has its shelves fully stocked with copies of Windows 8, and this afternoon, we have reason to believe that a new, slimmer iMac may be in the pipeline.

AT&T LG Optimus G hands-on with quad-core gaming

It's time to take a peek at the LG Optimus G as it runs on AT&T's 4G LTE network and busts out with the majorly powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor on a set of three lovely games. The first game we're taking a peek at is Wild Blood, a hack-and-slash monster-slaying 3rd-person adventure from Gameloft. Gameloft also presents the second game we're having a peek at, that being Asphalt 7, a racing game with lots and lots of drifting. Then it's time for a glu-developed game by the name of Indestructible - one car destroys another with chain guns, missiles, and many, many bombs. UPDATE: We've now got an AT&T LG Optimus G full review as well!
