This week we’re getting closer to the LG G3, today spotting a leaked photo of three different color iterations of the smartphone. Quite likely at launch will be the availability of gold, silver (or white), and black versions of the LG G3. This device will be delivered with a mix of glass, plastic, and metal in its physical build.
This week we’ve gotten an anonymous tip on the gold edition of the LG G3. This device appears to be working with the same body as the normal LG G3, only bringing on the brushed metal gold look we’ve seen with recent brands outside of the LG universe. This device has back-facing buttons, much like the LG G2 and LG G Flex, here working with a slightly flatter design.
LG has unveiled the Isai FL for Japanese carrier KDDI, previewing the 5.5-inch QHD 2K display we're expecting to see in the upcoming LG G3. The new panel runs at 2560 x 1440 resolution for a pixel density of 538ppi, but LG claims the on-screen images should be more accurate not just more detailed, with 100-percent RGB color reproduction. In fact, LG suggests, you could watch a Blu-ray quality video with the same sort of detail as you'd get from a projector or vast TV.
LG's HomeChat system of talkative appliances has hit stores, a range of high-tech kitchen kit with which users can have two-way conversations over messaging app LINE, including seeing exactly what's left in your fridge. Previewed at CES, HomeChat - which will be offered in South Korea only, at least initially - uses natural language processing to allow you to confide in your washing machine "much like chatting with a close friend."
There’s an all-in-one with Google’s operating system Chrome OS headed for the United States this week - the LG Chromebase. Launched in secret to several retailers and reiterated at a special Intel-based event, LG’s first desktop computer running Chrome has arrived. This device has been released in Australia, of all places, earlier this year, and is just now ready for the USA.
Intel has embraced Chrome OS, outing the first batch of Celeron-branded Chromebooks from a clutch of manufacturers, as well as the first Core i3 Chromebooks. The launch - which includes Lenovo's new N20p and N20 Chromebooks - also includes a new Education Chromebook reference design aiming to bring more Chrome devices into classrooms.
It would appear that cases are once again bringing on the leaks for the smartphone universe, this time hitting up the LG G3. Details for this device have appeared several times over the past several months, noting such features as the continued use of back-facing buttons, a dual-LED flash, and a button-less front facade.
LG has sent out an initiation to a press event that will be held on May 27. The invite isn't exactly clear on what the folks that come to the event will see, it simply says "Save the date." We do have a very good idea of what exactly the topic of this special event will be, the LG G3 smartphone, and possibly the G Watch wearable.
