Mobile World Congress may still be a week away, but that hasn't stopped LG from spilling the beans on its upcoming line-up; first the new G Pro 2 flagship, and now the third-generation of L Series. The Android 4.4 KitKat powered L40, L70, and L90 range in size from a 3.5-inch display through 4.5- and finally 4.7-inches, each running a 1.2GHz processor - dualcore on the L40 and L70; quadcore on the L90 - and with HSPA+ but not LTE.
Late last month, LG confirmed both the existence and the upcoming arrival of the LG G Pro 2, which was assumed to be slated for Mobile World Congress later this month. Not being one to wait, LG has pulled the trigger sooner than that, introducing its latest handset in Korea and promising we'll get to see in in person at MWC 2014.
LG's Heart Rate Earphones, revealed as part of the company's fitness wearable push back at CES 2014 last month, have hit the FCC, ahead of what we'd assume is a near-at-hand launch in the US. The headphones, which use pulse-tracking technology built into the buds to monitor heart activity and send it to a nearby smartphone, plugs into a clip-on Bluetooth dongle and can optionally be paired with LG's other new wearable, the Life Band Touch.
LG is aiming to give curved OLED TVs a serious push into the living room, slashing the price of its first set as it tries to "significantly grow" demand for OLED in 2014. The LG 55EA9800, a 55-inch curved OLED Full HD TV, was announced back at CES 2013 and went on sale in the US in April last year, though at the fairly off-putting price of $14,999.95. Now, less than a year later, LG has trimmed that down by more than half.
There have been many rumors circulating about the LG G Pro 2 smartphone. The launch of the device was previously tipped to happen sometime this month. We mentioned earlier this week that the smartphone was tipped to use some new tech for the camera inside.
It's difficult to capture the tone of the red Nexus 5, that much is true. While we'd expected this tone of the machine to be offered up in a color that was close to the cases that were available from day one, we didn't truly thing Google would go all-in. As it turns out, they absolutely did - this is a smartphone you're going to have difficulty losing track of.
Late last month the launch date for the latest smartphone from LG called the G Pro 2 was sometime this month. As we near the launch of the device more features and tech that LG used in the smartphone is being unveiled. LG has tipped some interesting camera tech for the phone.
With the AT&T version of the LG G Flex, we're getting another look at what it means to work with what this manufacturer calls the world's first curved, flexible display. While we did get a rather healthy look with our LG G Flex Review back in December, our US-based review here and now gives us the states-based vision. The carrier-based vision, that is, and from a slightly different reviewer's perspective as well.
It would appear that the idea of capturing every single thing you do - aka "life logging" has permeated the likes of Samsung. They've had an app leak today that's called "Life Times", one which captures anything you want it to capture, just so long as its on the smartphone you're running the app on. LG has an app that's rather similar - one called Life Square - already running on devices like the LG G Flex.
