LG, in an attempt to promote its G Flex smartphone, has taken a rather strange path to let people know about the device's self-healing coating and curved display. Very strange.
Thursday will see the debut of the LG G Pad 8.3 Android tablet as 4G LTE device in the US. Previously seen as a Wi-Fi capable device, the G Pad 8.3 will launch on Verizon Wireless's LTE network beginning March 6. Initially, the tablet will cost only $99 on a two year contract, but that price will double to $199 beginning March 10.
Since companies began introducing "mini" versions of their flagship products, they have disappointed users who want all the power of a premium phone without the giant screens that typically accompany them. LG has decided not to buck that trend.
There's never been a phone quite like the LG G Flex. The G Flex is a device with a large imprint and an unavoidable curve. That's both the selling point of the device and potentially it's greatest weakness. So which is it: virtue or flaw? Let's find out.
T-Mobile today announced the upcoming release dates and prices of two Android smartphones set to debut next month. One phone is a device with a 6-inch screen and the ability to bend, and the other is a rare instance of an Android smartphone with a QWERTY keyboard.
LG today announced that it will unveil the G Pro 2 at a press event in February, and the Korean manufacturer is surely hoping that its next large phone will add to the momentum of devices released in recent months. LG also chose today to reveal its earnings report for the fourth quarter of 2013, a three-month period that saw the company sell more than 13 million smartphones.
CES 2014 has predictably been a launch point for many wearable technology, particularly smart watches and bands. One of the standouts of the many options on display here is the LG Life Band Touch, a fitness bracelet that monitors your health and interacts with your connected devices.
LG used CES 2014 as another showcase for a new wearable computing device that can connect to Android or iOS and provide health tracking information similar to Fitbit. I say another because the company showed a similar device last year, but the device has been retooled and unveiled as the Life Band Touch.
Apple and HTC introduced smartphones that featured sensors that read fingerprints to unlock the device, and LG will reportedly follow suit with its 2014 flagship device, the LG G3.
British operator EE has announced that it will offer an early glimpse at the curved LG G Flex smartphone in select stores beginning December 20. A sneak peek is all customers will get because the phone won't actually be available to buy.
