LG G3 specs apparently leaked, including 2K display and 3GB of RAM

It can be difficult for an Android device to stand out in the crowded smartphone market. Without a unique feature or a killer set of specifications, consumers are going to stick with what they know, which is why the latest leak for what could be LG’s next flagship phone is even more intriguing. My LG Cell Phones happened across a User Agent Profile on Sprint’s website for an unannounced LG phone with model number LS990, and based on the specs, this could be the G3 we’ve been anticipating.

LG G3 to pack the kind of screen Galaxy S5 fans expected

The LG G3 may offer buyers the kind of screen that was rumored for the Galaxy S5 not too long ago, at least according to a User Agent Profile revealed by @evleaks. According to the information in the screenshot posted by the famed leaker, the LG G3 will have a QHD display – that’s quad HD resolution or 2560 x 1440 or 2K. Furthermore, this 2K handset has model number LG D850, which can only mean it’s the G3, the company’s next flagship model, assuming the leak is accurate. More →

This is the phone LG hopes will finally help it fight Samsung

2013 was not a banner year for LG’s smartphone business. After gaining some ground in the highly competitive market, sales of LG’s flagship G2 smartphone last year completely bombed. A report suggested the company sold just 2.3 million G2 handsets total through early December after forecasting sales totaling 3 million units in Q3 alone, and it left industry watchers wondering if there is any hope left for LG’s smartphone business. Well, we may soon find out. More →

Can copying Apple and Samsung help LG turn things around?

Can copying Apple and Samsung help LG turn things around?

LG’s 2013 flagship phone was a very capable device with impressive specs and a solid design, but it didn’t really include anything in the way of compelling differentiation that might set it apart from smartphones sold by South Korean rival Samsung. The problem with that, of course, is that Samsung’s smartphones are backed by a marketing budget that climbs into the double-digit billions, so sales of the G2 fell well short of expectations. Also, no one cared about it’s standout feature: volume buttons and a power button on the back of the case. LG might not have the budget to go toe to toe with Samsung but according to a new report, its next move with the G2′s successor might take a page right out of its larger rivals’ playbooks.

LG to match Samsung with 2K resolution on upcoming G3 smartphone

LG to match Samsung with 2K resolution on upcoming G3 smartphone

It looks like LG’s next-generation flagship phone for 2014 might have something a bit more impressive to tout than buttons on the back of the device. According to a report from ZDNet Korea, LG may have leaked the specs of its next generation flagship phone, the LG G3. It is rumored to have a 1,440 x 2,560-pixel quad HD display. Quad HD is another name for 2K resolution, which refers to a display that has a horizontal resolution (or vertical resolution, in the case of smartphones) of more than 2,000 pixels. The rumor does not specify how large the display will be, but LG showed off a new 5.5-inch quad HD display this August. ZDNet Korea’s report also says that the G3 will feature a 16-megapixel rear camera and an eight-core processor. The G3 isn’t expected to launch until the second half of 2014. More →

Actual T-Mobile G2 information… maybe

Actual T-Mobile G2 information… maybe

By on December 20, 2008 at 2:02 AM.

We just got a tip about the next Google Android-powered handset for T-Mobile, yes, the G2. We’re running this as a rumor as it’s definitely not confirmed, but we’d bet on this turning out to be true as opposed to, well, you know… Here’s what our tipster had to say:

  • The product specs on the T-Mobile G2 that CellPhoneSignal ran weren’t actually all that far off, just the date was completely wrong.
  • The device is a full touch device and there is no physical QWERTY keyboard.
  • There is still a trackball at the bottom.
  • The launch was delayed from late February to April due to software issues.
  • We’ve been informed this device will actually launch on another global carrier besides T-Mobile as well, though they didn’t say who, and they said that the G1, G2, G3, etc., names are trademarks of T-Mobile and the other carrier would have a different product name for the device other than G2.
  • There is supposedly (oh, god) a G3 coming not that far after the G2 but our tipster didn’t see the G3.

Ah! Maybe that’s why HTC isn’t bringing a Touch HD to America… Makes sense now doesn’t it? Again, full on rumor status at the moment, but we figured we’d warm your souls with this bit of info on this cold ass night.

TIME Magazine + Cell Phone Industry = FAIL

TIME Magazine + Cell Phone Industry = FAIL

By on June 21, 2008 at 9:41 AM.

Remember back when being a part of mainstream media meant something? Respect, dignity, hard work, research, fact checking, deadlines and so on. Ahh those were the days, but my how times have changed; especially when it comes to the cell phone industry. They just don’t get it. Kind of makes you wonder what else they’re missing, no? Anyway, we’re now quite pleased to present to you the iPhone G3. Mmm. Found within a TIME Magazine photo essay entitled The Long Odyssey of the Cell Phone, the iPhone G3 is apparently a very important part of mobile history. Quite a retrospective. We’re also very impressed with the fact that TIME recognizes the long and storied journey that mobile technology has taken – so much so that it has been captured in a total of 14 slides. Good show fellas, top drawer.
