LG foretells imminent future of UHD display panels for low-end TVs

Who would have thought there'd be an end to the seemingly never-ending enlargement of television displays for the home - yet here it is, being warned against by none other than the CEO of LG Display.

This report originates with Ars Technica where they suggest that the smoking gun is the fact that this smartphone brings up four full-powered CPU cores whenever it's asked to open any one of several big-name benchmarking apps.

Nexus 5 hardware photographed: launch imminent

In terms of clues leading up to the launch of a product, it would seem that an overly abundant amount of photos, specifications, and business moves by Google have lead the way to the Nexus 5 this past month. What we're seeing today, here on the first of October, is a single photo that lends itself extremely convincingly towards the idea that an LG-made Nexus 5 release is right around the corner.
