We are nearing the April 28th launch date for the LG G4, the South Korean company's latest smartphone flagship. We already know plenty about this device, from its blazing market leading specs to its slick (slightly curved) design that features a plastic front and real leather rear casing. A new report now even sheds light on the pricing of the G4, and it may not exactly be affordable.
We have known about the LG G Watch Urbane for some time, the device is arguably the best looking smartwatch at the moment. The Android Wear packing wearable has yet to be rolled out to customers but LG has confirmed the date when that will change. The South Korean company says that the G Watch Urbane will be available this week.
Chinese brand Xiaomi has announced its new high end smartphone, the Mi 4i, and as we have come to expect from the company it comes with a few surprises. Sure, this is a high spec'd juggernaut as you would expect, but the cost of the handset makes it a bit of a bang for buck king. However, like most Xiaomi smartphones, the availability of the 4i will mean most of our readers cannot get one.
The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge are fantastic smartphones, and they are widely expected to breathe new life into the company after a worrying 2014. The handsets have already made their mark in Samsung's South Korea homeland, with the devices shifting 200,000 units within 10 days of being released. However, Samsung believed it would move 300,000 units based on pre-order numbers, so the Galaxy S6 range is not performing quite as well as predicted.
LG has launched a new smartphone, one that could be about to change the way we view smartphone storage in the near future. The LG G Stylo landed today a week before the company is set to announce its latest flagship, the G4. As you can probably gather by the name, the Stylo comes with its own stylus, much like we saw with last year's G3 Stylus.
Motorola confirmed earlier in the month that its first generation Moto smartphones (Moto X and Moto G) would be skipping the Android 5.0 update and moving straight from 4.4.4 KitKat to Lollipop 5.1. That roll out is expected soon, especially now a changelist for the Android 5.1 running on the first generation Moto X showed up today.
It seems that OnePlus and its flagship killing OnePlus One smartphone are finally growing up after the company made a pretty big announcement. Co-founder Carl Pei dropped the bomb that the manufacturer has linked up with a carrier for the first ever time, and said carrier will be offering the OnePlus One smartphone.
Motorola's spiffing Moto E 4G LTE second generation has been made available in India starting from today, bringing the budget king to the second most populous country in the world. The device is selling for the same as $127 US dollars from Flipkart, an online retailer in the subcontinent. If you have an SBI card you will get a 10% discount, which would make the handset $115. It is actually a little bit more affordable than the list price from when Motorola launched the device.
Oppo's next smartphone high ender, the Oppo R7, has leaked in what is rumoured to be an official render, although some reports are pointing to a potential concept mock-up. The handset will be replacing the Oppo R5 and that means it will be very thin. You may remember that the R5 launched last November was the thinnest smartphone ever at 4.85mm, a record it held for about two weeks.
Those rocking the OnePlus One flagship killer have been expecting a software update to Cyanogen 12 for their smartphones. However, the upgrade has now been pulled, at least for the time being as the patch has been halted. Not to worry though, OnePlus says this is not a negative decision such as the phone bricking or software problems.
