LG has come up with a clever way to generate more consumer interest for its upcoming G4 smartphone, its newest flagship device set to launch later this month. The South Korean phone maker has announced that it will be selecting 4,000 lucky consumers across 15 markets around the world to test the LG G4 device for a number of weeks before it hits stores everywhere.
The next flagship smartphone offering from LG will boast major enhancements, especially in its display screen. The South Korean phone maker has confirmed that the new Quad High Definition (QHD) LCD display screen will sport significant improvements in terms of brightness, range of colors, contrast ratio, touch functionality, power efficiency, and thinness.
LG also confirmed that the new QHD display screens are already in mass production, and should be ready just in time for the debut of the company's soon-to-be-released flagship device sometime later this April.
The LG G3 Vigor is no longer just your typical LG Android smartphone. It has now become the first ever smartphone in Canada to support Voice over LTE (VoLTE), a type of communications technology that facilitates voice calls as well as video calls on the same network that is used to transmit data.
Rogers Communications, a wireless carrier based in Canada, made the announcement just recently that it has already started selling the LG G3 Vigor. The device is basically offered free with select two year service contracts.
As for those who are not too enthusiastic about committing to any two year service contract, they can opt to purchase the LG G3 Vigor outright by paying the full retail price of $299.
The battle of the flagship smartphones is really heating up now. Samsung and HTC have already confirmed that they will be launching their respective flagship devices -- the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge for Samsung; the One M9 for HTC -- within the month of April. And now, it appears that LG will soon be joining the fray.
This year, LG is planning to launch a high-end smartphone that will surpass the G4, the company's upcoming flagship offering. The G4 smartphone has not been officially announced yet, but it appears that the South Korean phone maker is already working on another premium phone that will possess even better features than its flagship devices.
LG had quite a hit with its flagship G line of smartphones. The latest model is the LG G3 which was released last year and went on to become one of the most well-reviewed handsets of 2014. The South Korean company is expected to launch the G3's successor, the G4 next month in April.
Samsung, HTC, and other prominent phone makers are set to introduce new smartphones during the upcoming Mobile World Congress happening in the first week of March. But LG is apparently not waiting one more week to unveil its newest devices named Joy, Leon, Spirit, and Magna. Those expecting a newer version of the South Korean phone maker's flagship device, the G3, may be a bit disappointed, but these four new devices should appeal to those looking for budget-friendly mid-range handsets.
The Leon, Joy, Magna, and Spirit smartphones may not be flagship devices, but they sure do look similar to the G3. Indeed, they feature the same slightly curved design and even have the same sleep and volume buttons (mounted on the rear).
Sprint has recently announced that it has now included a couple of new devices, the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and the LG G3, to Sprint Lease, a program that provides customers an alternative to buying handsets upfront, subsidized, or via an early upgrade scheme.
In addition, the Sprint Lease program also lets subscribers get a new handset for $0 outright, and lease the device for a specific monthly amount for a period of 24 months.
Back in 2014, LG released the G Flex handset, a 6-inch smartphone with a unique curved body design and a self-healing coating that clears up scratches or any damage done to the device's casing.
Now, the South Korean company is introducing an enhanced and more streamlined version, the G Flex 2. This time around, the newest version comes with a smaller but more handy 5.5-inch display screen, and Qualcomm's most powerful chip set.
The G Flex 2 smartphone was introduced by LG during its very recent press conference at the Consumer Electronics Show 2015 (CES 2015) held in Las Vegas, Nevada in the United States.
For people, the color red may be used to signify a number of things. It can be used as a symbolism for passion, seduction, danger, violence, and even anger. About 77% of flags include the color red and it is more common among brand logos and names. Verizon Wireless is just one of the companies that use the color on their logo. But if there's something else that the color red signifies for the telecommunications company, it would be its approach to an AIDS awareness brand.
In the United States, customers can buy the LG G3 smartphone in three colors: Metallic Black, Silk White, and Shine Gold. But apparently, a fourth version of the device is available exclusively from one specific retailer. That retailer is Best Buy, which is now offering a Blue Steel version of the LG G3 smartphone on its website. The device is multiple carrier compatible, which means customers can get it on any of these three major wireless carriers in the US: AT&T, Sprint, and Verizon Wireless. The device is priced at $99.99 on a two-year agreement. Although the Blue Steel LG G3 is already displayed live on Best Buy's website, the device is listed as "Coming Soon" as of now. Neither Best Buy nor LG has made an announcement yet about the shipping date for this version.
