    The LG Optimus G proved to be more than just another LG phone. It did a great job at amazing us when it launched in the fall of last year since it marked a new and more elegant deployment of smartphones from LG at times when their past was clouded by cheap phones. Another thing that characterized that Optimus G was that it was the firs smartphone to launch with the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro, which has now led the way to more efficient and powerful processors like the Snapdragon 600 and 800. A lot of us have been left wondering when Qualcomm will launch the first smartphone with the ...

    Last week an image of an unknown LG smartphone surfaced, apparently an Android model under development. There wasn't much to see other than a sleek design and thin bezel, leaving us wondering if it might just be the Optimus G II, if not a new Nexus model. Today, we get another glimpse at the handset as we continue to wonder about how it will arrive. With the screen turned off, it's harder to appreciate the thin bezel on this mystery LG Android this time around, but at least we get to check out the phone from a slightly different angel. The one big development that's occurred since we had ...

    Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800: if mention of that chip doesn't send a little shiver down your spine, you just haven't been playing close enough attention to this year's hot new SoC launches. Announced back at the start of the year alongside models like the Snapdragon 600, the 800 is set to be Qualcomm's 2013 heavyweight. We've heard that the chip is moving out of sampling and into mass production sometime later this month, so we could be seeing the first devices powered by the 800 show up as soon as late summer. All that remains to be seen is who will be first to really harness that 800 power. ...

    Tomorrow's the big day. March 14. Now sure, if you're a math fan you're already excited about the opportunity to celebrate your favorite irrational constant, but this year in particular, the rest of us have reason to look forward to the fourteenth as well, with Samsung running its big Unpacked event. Short of out and saying it, the company's done pretty much everything it can to confirm that this will be the grand unveiling of the Galaxy S IV, the company's 2013 Android flagship. That's going to be great to hear, and we're itching for the opportunity to confirm the oh, so many details ...

    Maybe part of the reason NVIDIA was reportedly having so much trouble getting manufacturers signed up to use the Tegra 4 is that more and more companies are getting into the custom SoC game themselves. Samsung has been doing just that for years, and Huawei uses its own chips, too; we're now hearing that LG will be next to follow down that path. LG officials have confirmed that the company has designed what it's calling its Odin chip, an eight-core design in the vein of Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa, featuring an ARM big.LITTLE architecture. LG will reportedly contract TSMC to actually fabricate ...
