During Mobile World Congress 2014 last month, Android boss Sundar Pichai said we'd not be seeing the next Nexus smartphone until the second half of this year, which surprised no one, and now according to word that has surfaced, LG will be making the handset -- as well as a Nexus smartwatch.
In a move that you’d expect only the Super Bowl crew of advertising agents would push forward, LG has created a spot for the LG G Flex with human lips. In a move that we’ve only otherwise seen Sony roll with on the Xperia Play, LG presents the LG G Flex as a device that’s "the most human phone ever." We must assume that they mean the phone curves to the side of your face.
Verizon will offer the LTE version of LG's G Pad 8.3 tablet from March 6th, the carrier has announced, adding another Android slate to the carrier's line-up. The slate, running Android on an 8.3-inch Full HD IPS display with a 1.5GHz quadcore processor, will be offered at $299.99 unsubsidized.
With the LG G Pro 2 we’ve got what’s essentially a mix and upgrade to the LG G2 and the LG G Flex. This device is just as massive as the curved-display monster and it works with many of the same specifications of LG’s first hero device to work with back-facing buttons. This LTE-A device also works with back-facing buttons, and this time it’s humongous.
Details of Google's smartwatch development have emerged, along with photos of an old Motorola-made prototype, and whispers that the final version could be unveiled at Google IO 2014 in June. Chatter of the company's ongoing research into wearables other than its Glass head-worn computer has continued for the past twelve months or so, though most recently have suggested the company will make Google Now its focus on the wrist by delivering timely and contextually-relevant information from a connected smartphone.
