LG Reveals LG G Watch R

Seems like Samsung wasn’t the only one who was in hurry of unveiling company’s smart watch. LG just went ahead and revealed the gorgeous looking LG G Watch R as well. Unlike Samsung’s Gear S, the LG G Watch R will be running Android Wear instead of Tizen. LG will be showcasing the G Watch R at the IFA, in Berlin that is only few days away.

We are wondering if the R in the watch’s name stands for ’round’ considering how the LG G Watch R is completely round and it looks good to be honest. The specs are pretty decent as well, the LG G Watch R comes with a 1.3 inches of OLED display which will have a resolution of 320 x 320 pixels. According to LG, the G Watch R will be using the face completely unlike Moto 360.  Continue Reading →

There are few things you can tell from the teaser image. Firstly, it won’t be completely round. Secondly, it seems that the smart watch will be made using premium quality material, possibly a metallic rim will be present. Whatever the case is, everything will be revealed in coming weeks.

Samsung Galaxy Alpha Goes Official

After weeks of rumours and several leaks, the Samsung Galaxy Alpha finally went official. This came as a surprise since we were hoping that Samsung will be unveiling this phone in September at IFA but seems like the Korean giant didn’t want the attention away from the big thing that will be revealed at IFA (Galaxy Note 4)

So what is the most unique thing about the Galaxy Alpha? Well, for starters, this is the first device from Galaxy family tree to come with premium metal chassis. Other physical details include a faux leather back. The Galaxy Alpha seems to be the thinnest Galaxy device, with only 6.7mm thick, it’s even thinner than the Apple iPhone 5s. Despite being made up of metal, the phone weighs only 115 grams. As for the other measurements 132.4 x 65.5 which are somewhat similar to the Galaxy S5 Mini. Continue Reading →

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Poses For The Camera

The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is making the rounds again, and this time, the phone is leaked while posing for the camera. Thanks to GSMArena, we have got our hands on a sleuth of photos that are showing the phone from the front and the back as well as a picture of the retail box. If the pictures speak the truth, then it seems that just like the Galaxy Alpha, Galaxy Note 4 will be coming with a metallic frame. As for the visual aesthetics of the phone, it looks quite similar to the Galaxy Note 3 with subtle changes all around.

Back for instance looks like a textured, faux leather as compared to the plain one on the Galaxy Note 3. We can see the micro USB 3.0 on the bottom but there is no flap covering it which obviously means that the phone won’t be water or dust resistant. You can see the S-pen holder on the bottom along with the speaker grill. On the back of the Note 4, we can see a heart rate sensor alongside the LED flash but at the moment, we can’t say for sure.
