AT&T has just announced the LG Escape, a device we’ve seen leaked numerous times over the past few days. At $49, it’s one of the cheapest 4G LTE smartphones out there, but is it worth it?
Interested in getting a phablet through Verizon? Up until recently, Verizon has remained phablet-free when it comes to its smartphone offerings.
U.S. Cellular might not be one of the top four networks in the U.S. market, but that doesn’t stop it from competing against the major carriers with its own great service and exclusive devices. Recently, U.S. Cellular released a new exclusive for the midrange market, the Motorola Electrify 2. Now they are offering something new for the budget crowd with the LG Splendor.
The Escape (aka LG P870) was seen in a pretty blurry “press shot” less than a week ago, and now stars in another more high-def-ish pic. The new “leak” comes from the @evleaks Twitter account, a very solid source of credible rumors these past few months.
According to a report from the Korean website DDaily, Samsung had initially planned to fit the newly launched Galaxy Note 2 with a 13MP image sensor supplied by Sony. The report explains some of the rumors about the Note 2 that circulated a few months ago, which eventually proved inaccurate. The Galaxy Note 2 is fitted with “just” an 8MP camera, identical with the one in Samsung’s other flagship, the Galaxy S3.
Did you wonder why did LG choose not to brag around with the Optimus G “beast” over in Berlin at the IFA 2012? Well, it might have had something to do with a new video teaser which popped up on YouTube and that could be the start of an exciting marketing campaign.
A new LG handheld set to hit the States has been leaked, hopefully just paving the way for other more exciting unveilings. The LG P870, also known as the Escape, is an LTE-enabled AT&T-bound smartphone that stars in what DroidDog calls leaked “press shots”.
LG is improving its mid-range lineup in the US with the addition of the LG Splendor for US Cellular. The Splendor is actually a rebranded, slightly modified version of the international LG Optimus L7, which was first announced at MWC this year.
New flexible lithium-ion battery technology from LG could open new possibilities for smartphone design. The cable-type batteries are fully flexible and capable of holding a comparable charge to normal smartphone batteries.
The Intuition is the fancy new name of LG’s Optimus Vu “phablet”. Athough rumors from last week stated that it’ll come on the 15th of September, it now seems that Verizon and LG are going out of their way to undercut the US release of the Galaxy Note 2.
