Some time ago, we brought you news of LG’s intent to create a new flagship phone. They now have a video teaser site up that shows just that and nothing more. The name has been switched from the ‘D1L’ and will be a ’2nd gen’ quad core device, unlike the 4X HD which hit Europe in June.

Verizon is sure having a busy month of new releases. Set to join the ranks of other notable offerings like the Samsung Galaxy S3 and HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE is LG’s own VS930. The proof is in the freshly leaked pictures of the phone, which have been spotted by Engadget. The LG VS930 will most likely take the torch from LG Spectrum (VS920) and continue LG’s run in the increasingly competitive smartphone race. Judging from the pictures, the VS930 does resemble the look of LG Optimus LTE 2 – and will probably end up becoming Verizon variant of the…

While we all know that LG’s popularity in the smartphone world is no match to that of Apple, Samsung, or HTC, some recent financial reports are solid proof that Koreans are not doing that bad after all. The company’s Q1 2012 profits in the mobile sector have doubled year-over-year and have significantly increased for the second quarter in a row. It’s true, earnings and profits are still far off from, say, Samsung’s numbers, but LG is clearly making some important steps forward. The most recent report to prove that LG is doing pretty well financially involves total LTE smartphone sales, which…

If you’ve been following us for more than a little while, you might remember that we told you that the phone will be the first ever to come with 2 GB of RAM. However, that’s pretty much all we knew about the…

LG shows off new Optimus UI 3.0 overlay

by 2 years ago

After the unveiling of the Optimus LTE2 and the launch of the Optimus 4X HD, it’s obvious that LG is trying to make a push in the high-end smartphone market niche, where it’s currently no match for the likes of Apple, Samsung, or even HTC. However, that was just part one of LG’s offensive, with part two coming now in the form of a newly unveiled user interface set to enrich the Android ICS experience on LG’s future phones. The LG Optimus UI 3.0 (not a very original name, I know) will come pre-installed on both the Optimus LTE2 and the 4X HD….

Just as Samsung unveiled the Galaxy S3 in front of a huge online and offline audience, LG made a similar announcement that for some reason, went unnoticed. LG wants some attention, folks. The Optimus LTE2 is the most recent monster phone to come from one of Samsung’s longstanding competitors and, while some technical details about the device are still blurry, what we do know makes us think that this could actually be at least as powerful and cool as the Galaxy S3. Set to hit Korea in just a matter of weeks, the Optimus LTE2 will be the world’s first…
