    LG's G Watch is all set to help kick-off the arrival of Android Wear smartwatches this summer, alongside devices like the Moto 360. Just the other day, in fact, LG put up a nice new collection of teaser images for the G Watch, showing off an alternate color selection. But once the G Watch arrives, what might be next for the manufacturer? We've already heard talk about a possible sequel set to arrive sometime before the end of the year, but everything else about this wearable – from its features, to design, to branding – has remained a mystery. Rather than launching as something like ...

    The way every smartphone reveals itself to us is different. With the HTC One M8, one of the most-leaked phones in recent memory, rumors leading up to its release were dominated by hardware shots and anticipatory renders. Nowadays one of the highest-profile Androids on our radar is the LG G3, but this phone's been telling its story in a slightly different manner, and recently its leaks have been dominated by screenshots. Sure, we've looked a a theory linking its hardware design to some leaked renders of LG models for Japan, and even caught that early glimpse of packaging, but it's been ...

    When Google announced Android Wear last month, Motorola was ready right out of the gate to share tons of info about its Moto 360. While LG also went public with news of its own smartwatch, the G Watch, at the same time, it didn't have quite so much to show us. However, in the weeks that followed additional info has trickled out, including both new official pics and some hands-on shots of actual G Watch hardware. Now, LG is unleashing a new torrent of G Watch images, including the first pics of an alternate color version. Besides the all black G Watch we've seen thus far, LG will also ...

    LG's been cooking up its G3, and the smartphone should launch with a high-res 2K display. And really, for about the past month or so now, that model's dominated our coverage of LG news. Today we mix things up a little by looking past the G3 itself to some other upcoming LG devices, with new leaks pointing not just to the existence of a couple new LG tablets, but also to a possible G3 Mini. News already of a G3 Mini is pretty exciting, especially after the G2 Mini only just launched back at MWC. We were also a little let down with the G2 Mini's hardware (not to mention its size), so we're ...

    We started the week off with Sprint posting an update to its Nexus 5 software version page, advising users that a new release was incoming. While the initial build number of KTU48F it gave was confusing, that turned out to be a typo, later corrected to KTU84F. We had already associated recent builds like this with Android 4.4.3, and the carrier sure seemed to be confirming that a release was imminent. But then Tuesday came with no update... as did Wednesday and Thursday. With the week winding down, is KTU84F still on the horizon? Not according to Sprint, which has reverted its Nexus 5 ...

    Rumors about LG's next flagship have been around for quite a while by this point, and we've been hearing claims made about the phone's hardware since last year. But recently our understanding of the smartphone has really started taking shape, and only this week have we been seeing pictures that could serve to reveal the handset's ultimate design. Today we get another leaked pic to gawk over, though this time one not of the phone itself, but its packaging. Compared to the G2's box, the LG brand is more front-and-center. The G3 logo appears much like we expected it to here, with that ...

    Well over a year ago, back around MWC 2013, we heard about LG's aspirations to join the ranks of competitor Samsung with the production of its own LG-branded SoCs. Reportedly, LG was courting TSMC to fabricate the so-called Odin chips, at least some of which would be octa-core big.LITTLE components. Based on when we were hearing about it, we hoped the chips might be ready to make their debut inside the G2 later that year, but instead LG's SoC plans seemed to fall off the radar, and we went without updates. All of a sudden, that news is back in headlines, with word that LG is nearly ready ...

    LG's G3 may be the next flagship to launch from a major Android player, with rumors suggesting we're just a month or two away from its debut. There have been plenty of rumors and leaks arriving to address our expectations for the phone already, but we haven't had much in the way of reliable images of actual hardware. This week, just such a variety of imagery surfaces, but it's not entirely straightforward just what we're looking at. Take, for example, the renders you see above in white, and below in blue. This is not the LG G3. What it is, though, is an apparent leak of the LG isai FL, ...

    Most new device launches go the same way: usually the press gets review units before they’re widely available, and we get to use them for a few days -or a week if we’re lucky- as we work on our review. Then press day arrives. The embargo on media coverage lifts, and everyone posts their reviews and videos at the same time. It’s a huge frenzy, commenters go nuts, and it’s a giant explosion of frantic opinion-sharing activity. For about … a day. And then it all goes away. Sure, there’s followup coverage as people find bugs and hidden features, but after that initial blast, not ...

    Google's been working on a new release of Android: no surprise there. We've spotted evidence pointing to development of Android 4.4.3, with versions in testing on both the Nexus 7 and Nexus 5. We've even had a decent sense of what to expect from the update, with rumors suggesting that this was primarily a bugfix update, without a focus on new features. The only big question was when we might see this new Android actually released, as despite all the signs of Google's testing, we really didn't have any proper sense of an ETA. Well, this might as well be platform-update-Monday, as in ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about the Samsung Galaxy S5 in stores, aside from the Samsung Gear line-up. HTC is next as the company takes a stab at the Galaxy S5 by comparing it to the HTC One M8, at least secretly. Microsoft is next as we get more rumors of a Surface Mini to be launched soon. LG follows as we get more reports of a 2K display coming on the LG G3. We end today's show talking about the launch of Google Glass to the public, at least temporarily. All this and more after the break. Stories: - Galaxy S5 availability draws big crowds (in some places) - HTC leak makes ...

    When an avalanche of reviews is rumbling its way down your mountain, it's rarely easy to assemble a podcast team – but as we frequently remind you, the Pocketnow Weekly has never missed a week, and we'll be damned if it'll do so now. So despite the forthcoming reviews of the Samsung Galaxy S 5, Gear Fit, Gear 2, Oppo Find 7a, Nokia X, and the just-completed reviews of the ZENS Qi line, BlackBerry 10.2.1, and the Verizon HTC One M8, we're banding together behind microphones in three separate cities on two continents to bring you the news and editorials of a very busy week in mobile. ...

    Smartphones with beyond-1080p 2K displays are by now very much a reality, but we've yet to see much in the way of examples from manufacturers popular in the West. That's left us anticipating when our favorite OEMs are finally going to come out with 2K phones of their own; will Samsung make the move with the Galaxy Note 4? Or what about LG with its G3? The latter there is probably the strongest contender at the moment, and we've already seen evidence from multiple sources that appeared to suggest the G3 would indeed end up with a 2560 x 1440 panel. Today the latest support for that theory ...
