In a few weeks, LG will take the wraps off its 2015 flagship Android smartphone — but any potential LG G4 surprises may have been ruined by a massive leak this weekend. Droid-Life reports that a microsite set up for the new handset revealed many details including a large number of press renders showing the upcoming phone from all possible angles. More →
In a few weeks, LG will unveil its fourth-generation G-branded smartphone, a device that will arrive at least a month after rival phones like the Galaxy S6 line and the HTC One M9. However, LG already seems to have some tricks up its sleeve for the LG G4, with camera quality being one of them. In fact, as Korea IT Times reports, the LG G4’s monster cameras have apparently been confirmed, and LG is ready to give the iPhone 6 Plus and Galaxy S6 a run for their money when it comes to camera performance.

Let’s face it — the Galaxy S6 isn’t going to have much competition from the Android market when it launches later this week. It’s not that there aren’t other great phones out there, perhaps most notable the HTC One M9 and the latest generation of the Moto X, but it’s hard to imagine either of those phones knocking Samsung off of its perch.
On the other hand, the more we see of the LG G4, the more convinced we are that it could put a dent in S6 sales.
With several fantastic new Android smartphones already on the market, LG is going to be hard-pressed to make an impact when its flagship G4 is finally unveiled at the end of April. After all, why wait a few extra weeks to buy LG’s smartphone when you can buy an HTC One M9 today and a Galaxy S6 next week?
Here’s why: LG’s Quad HD display.
LG was smart to not debut its next-generation flagship smartphone during this month’s Mobile World Congress trade show. It’s not that the phone is a dud, per se, but rather that Samsung and HTC definitely stole the show with their respective new flagship phones, the Galaxy S6 and HTC One M9. These hot new Android phones took center stage in Barcelona, but now that the buzz is dying down it looks like LG is getting ready to pull back the curtain on its latest and greatest Android phone.
Unfortunately for LG, it looks like a huge new leak just beat it to the punch. More →
Of all the failed smartphone platforms I’ve seen over the years, webOS’s death was the most tragic because it really was a wonderfully intuitive platform that was especially good for multitasking. Ever since Palm got bought out by HP, which subsequently sold webOS to LG, the platform has basically been dead although it always pops up every now and then running on a TV or a washing machine. However, a great video of LG’s Watch Urbane LTE has me thinking that webOS might have a 17th life as a wearables platform. More →
Three phones have dominated the conversation at MWC 2015 this week: the HTC One M9, the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 edge. Samsung and HTC both made waves in Barcelona, but LG has been uncharacteristically quiet. LG’s appearance at the show was limited to wearable devices, but it sounds like it won’t be long until the G4 makes its debut. More →
A few days before MWC 2015 kicked off, LG unveiled not one but two interesting wearable devices, and even though they share the same name, they’re actually quite different. The LG Watch Urbane LTE model that I saw earlier is a SIM-enabled smartphone on your wrist, a device that’s pretty bulky, even though it looks good and you could easily get used to that big metallic piece of technology on your hand.
A few days before the MWC 2015 madness started, LG surprised smartwatch fans by announcing a one of the best-looking smartwatches yet, at least until Huawei’s watch was unveiled: the LG Watch Urbane and its SIM-card carrying cohort, the LG Watch Urbane LTE. After taking the later for a brief stroll at MWC, I can say that it looks and feels good on the wrist, but it’s also a little bulky. Not to mention the fact that it runs on LG’s “Wearable Platform,” which might take some adjusting to. More →
Smartwatch fans have precious few choices when it comes to devices that don’t look like a terrible cross between a Swatch watch and a Casio wrist calculator. Beginning soon, however, that is going to change. Apple is expected to announce Apple Watch launch details during its event on March 9th, and the device will begin shipping in April, according to earlier comments made by Apple CEO Tim Cook.
