Other than getting a new device, nothing brings more excitement than receiving a major software update…I am not talking about Android 5.0 to Android 5.1.1…we are talking about jumping from Android 5.0.1 to Android 6.0 Marshmallow.  It is one thing for a manufacturer to upgrade last year’s model, but it is almost unheard of for them to go back any further, but that is exactly what LG is doing by providing the LG G3 with a Marshmallow update.  On Rogers’ latest list of upgrades, they show the upgrade for the LG G3 as “Coming Soon!”  Of course, Rogers covers themselves with their disclaimer – “Making sure these dates are accurate is our top priority.  Sometimes, things change beyond our control so all dates are subject to change.  Thank you for your understanding.”

LG Electronics unveiled its new V10 premium smartphone in Seoul and New York, Thursday.

The V10 is priced at 799,700 won ($678.98), which is relatively low for a premium handset. The company said it wants to reclaim its leading position in the global premium smartphone market, ending a recent slump in its business.

“With the smartphone market leveled and generalized upward, we tried to provide new user experiences reflecting actual needs, instead of merely following the trend in design and hardware specifications,” LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company President and CEO Cho Juno said at a press conference in Seoul, Thursday.

Following on the heels of the unveiling of its second generation 8in G Pad earlier this month, LG announced that it has come out with a new version of the Android tablet.

The 10.1in G Pad II comes with a larger display at 1,920 x 1,200, plus a boost in hardware with 2GB of RAM and a 2.26 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor.

Though the G4 smartphone won’t hit shelves in Europe and the US until June 5, LG has already unveiled the first two variants of its new flagship, the G4 Stylus and the G4c.

Presented at the end of April and already available in several Asian countries, the LG G4 is the most spectacular smartphone sold by the South Korean company. It comes with a super clear 5.5in Quad HD IPS Quantum Display (2,560 x 1,440), 3GB RAM, an NFC chip, 32GB of space (more with a microSD card) and runs on Qualcomm’s 1.8GHz six-core Snapdragon 808 processor.

There’s no need for a full review of the new Google Play Edition of LG’s G Pad 8.3 – you’re familiar with the software thanks to LG’s own Nexus 5 and other AOSP devices, and you can check out Cameron Summerson’s review of the retail version of the G Pad 8.3 for a look at the hardware. Aside from the “V510” badge on the tablet’s legal tiny type, this is the same device, and there’s not so much as a Google logo to tell the two apart. But it’s paired with clean Android 4.4, which incidentally is the one thing that kept me from buying the standard version earlier this year.

8-9 inches is the “Goldilocks” tablet size for me, and for at least a few of you as well – not too big, not too small, just right. My favorite tablet hardware was (and in many ways still is) Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 8.9, which has unfortunately aged out of the latest Android releases and apps and gone to that big Craigslist post in the sky. The G Pad 8.3 Google Play Edition seems to be a suitable replacement, combining solid hardware, an ideal tablet size, and excellent LCD screen, and the best Android software you can get, which will be reliably updated by Google for at least some time.

After a few leaks and several metric tonnes of rumours, Google are finally lifting the veil on Android 4.4, continuing with the sugary sweet confectionery branding by calling it Kit Kat.

According to Google, Kit Kat will have a more efficient memory foot print with stock Android apps using far less memory. Additionally its user interface will also scale down on budget hardware.

Interface
Google have obviously been putting some effort into Android 4.4’s interface which now sports a significantly more streamline look. Taking a leaf from iOS, there’s a “now playing” display mode which handily allows you to play, pause and skip music from the lock screen.

LG G Flex

Not long after LG revealed that it had successfully developed curved smartphone batteries, the Korean-based company announced the G Flex, a 6-inch quad-core smartphone that features an arched touch screen and rear control buttons. Though US pricing and availability remain unknown, the device will hit Korea in November, with more markets announced afterward.
