LG has announced a new entry-level smartphone that will be landing on the Verizon Wireless network. The smartphone is called the LG Lucid 3 and it is available in stores and online right now. LG's Knock code is one of the key features of the Lucid 3 that lets the owner wake and unlock the phone using a pattern of knocks or taps on the screen.
The overpopulated Android smartphone market is getting a new entrant in the form of the LG G3. To make sure that the community makes a beeline for the device, LG plays it smart by integrating some interesting features to the phone. The details came to light when an unannounced LG phone with model number LS990 was spotted on the User Agent profile of the Sprint website.
LG has announced the time frame launch for its roster of Ultra HD televisions, comprised of the UB9800, UB9500, UB9300, and UB8500 models. The models run the gamut in both features and size, all the way up to the massive 105-inch TV we got up close and personal with back in January during CES.
The saga of WebOS has been running for years now. Palm was the first to roll out the OS as an attempt to compete with Apple and Google in the smartphone wars. Eventually Palm failed and HP bought the OS and Palm as a whole. That purchase of Palm and WebOS turned out to be very bad for HP with the company losing money in major fashion when its aspirations failed and it too sold off WebOS to another firm.
Improving its initial double-tap to unlock feature that came in with the G2, LG has announced a new, and more secure interface for accessing LG Smartphones: the Knock Code. Models like the G Pro 2, G2 mini, F Series and L Series will come with this new feature, and the older versions will get replaced via a firmware update starting in April.
LG has revealed a second image of the LG G Watch, the company's first Android Wear smartwatch, and giving a clearer view of the upcoming wearable. The Korean company is one of several - also including Samsung, HTC, ASUS, and Motorola - to pledge support for Android Wear, Google's attempt to fettle Android for the wrist, and one of only two companies to show off their upcoming hardware, though the first glimpse LG gave was relatively clandestine.
LG has revealed its first smart bulb, the LG Smart Lamp, a low-wattage bulb that is said to be 80% more efficient than typical incandescent bulbs. However, while frugality is nice, the main highlight is its compatibility with Android and iOS devices. What this means is that you can control many aspects and features of this bulb via an app on your device.
Today Google unveiled their wearable push with Android Wear, a system that’ll work with both square and round screens. While this might seem like an aesthetic choice, purely for the fashion of the situation, Google has gone in-depth with how they’ll be rolling the system out. Starting with two core functions, Suggest and Demand, developers will be creating unique experiences for every device, while keeping a smooth UI for the lot.
