What was the last exciting LG phone? [Poll]

It’s over. LG announced last night that it will be pulling out of the global smartphone market in the next few months. In a way, it’s sad to see, but it also comes as no surprise, given the downward trajectory we’ve seen from LG for the past several years. On that note, do you even […]

LG expands Google TV lineup to seven models in 2013, OnLive to land on G3 series

LG is now onstage at CES 2013 and just showcased the third generation of its Google TV that it teased last month.

The LG Smart TV will expand from two models in 2012 to seven models in 2013, as previously announced, and will feature PrimeTime, Voice Search, and YouTube Send to TV capabilities. The sets are a part of the new GA6400 and GA7900 series and feature 42-, 47-, 50-, 55-, and 60-inch screen sizes, but the GA7900 will only have 47- and 55-inch models.

LG revealed that roughly 70 percent of the new TV sets it plans to launch this year would be “smart TVs.” We already knew the company would launch new Google TV models at CES, but now cloud-gaming platform OnLive has jointly said this morning that it will demo new support for LG’s Google TV G3 series at CES. The partnership brings a library of “over 300 titles” to the platform, so folks can play with their friends via an Android tablet. The G2 series got similar OnLive support in November.

In related news: LG also officially unveiled more 4K TVs. The new 55- and 65-inch models will include technology that can upscale 1080p content to 4K resolution. The company further announced a United States release date for its 55-inch OLED TV: the pricey $12,000 TV will go on sale in March, with pre-orders starting immediately.

9to5Google is live at CES 2013 and hopes to offer live demos soon of LG’s latest lineup and OnLive’s integration.

Optimus G successor officially named the LG G2

Ahead of an August 7th press event, LG has announced this evening that its next flagship device, a successor to the Optimus G, will be called the LG G2 (via Engadget).

LG also says that it will reserve the “Vu” branding for future phones with a 4:3 display.

“Our vision is to make LG’s newest G devices synonymous with excellence, raising the bar even further for the ultimate in user experience,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of the LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. “The new G2 will build upon the excellent reputation established by previous G Series products.”

While LG already announced during its unveiling of the new LG G2 earlier today that the device is coming to all four major US carriers, we just received confirmation from Sprint that the carrier will indeed be offering the device on its 4G LTE unlimited plans when it launches later this year.

“Over the years, we have teamed up with LG to bring top of the line devices to our customers. I am thrilled to see our relationship grow as we open new doors together by bringing LG G2 with the benefit of Sprint’s unlimited 4G LTE plans to our lineup.1 The new Sprint Unlimited Guarantee, available with an Unlimited, My WaySM or My All-inSM plan, is the perfect match for LG G2 because our customers can enjoy the powerful camera, huge screen, fast LTE speeds and other innovative features while on the Sprint network without worrying about costly overages or sharing data.

LG reports 12.1 million smartphone shipments in Q2, $2.78 billion in mobile revenue

LG has just posted its earnings for Q2 2013. The company reported revenues of $2.78 billion for the quarter, which is a 34.5 percent increase year over year. LG says that it also sold a record 12.1 million smartphones during the quarter, which led to an operating profit of $54.37 million, which is slightly lower than last quarter. LG attributes the drop to weaker demand in the South Korean market.

LG expects the lower-end L-Series and F-Series devices to increase overall sales growth, while its flagship G2 device should “increase the company’s product competitiveness.”

The company is expected to announce its highly-anticipated G2 flagship on August 7th.

Report claims LG, not Motorola, will make the Nexus 5

Following a report from usually reliable sources that Google would be using Motorola, not Nexus 4 manufacturer LG, to make its next-generation Nexus smartphone, conflicting reports today claim that isn’t the case.

Sketchy photos claim to show LG-made Nexus 5 prototype

With conflicting reports related to which company will be producing Google’s next-generation Nexus smartphone, today TechTastic (via Nowhereelse) posted the images above showing what they claim is the upcoming Nexus 5. There are two rumors floating around when it comes to the Nexus 5: one claims that Google’s Motorola will build the phone, and another claiming Nexus 4-maker LG will reprise its role. The images above don’t exactly follow the look of the glass Nexus 4, but it would line up with rumors that the Nexus 5 will be based on LG recently announced G2. It’s also worth noting that this is apparently a prototype, which might explain the less than polished exterior in the images. It doesn’t exactly seem to be sporting the “thinner design” compared to the G2 that we’ve been hearing about.

The Nexus 5 is rumored to have similar specs to the 5.2-inch display and Snapdragon 800 processor found on the LG G2, but previous reports said it will receive a downgraded Snapdragon 600 CPU and 10 megapixel camera.
