LG Isai FL in pink leaks alongside some specifications

Posted by wicked April - 19 - 2014 - Saturday Comments Off

lg_isai_fl_pink

The upcoming LG Isai FL that is bound for Japan has leaked once again. This time, @evleaks has given us a look at it in pink. But the image is not the only piece provided with his tweet. Also included were some specifications. The LCD display, which pushes the bezel-less boundary, is 5.5 inches. Inside will be Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.5GHz paired with 2GB of RAM. In addition to 32GB of internal storage, LG is including a microSD card slot.

While this handset is clearly covered with a skin produced by LG, Android 4.4 KitKat is at its core. And the outside of this device will actually be water-resistant to a degree. As I noted in the last leak for this device, it could be indicative of the LG G3 or even the Nexus 5 successor. The design language resembles both last year’s LG G2 and Nexus 5. In fact, it looks like a cross of the two.

Verizon LG G2 can now be upgraded manually to KitKat

Who likes waiting for a carrier to update a device to the latest version of Android? Especially when that carrier is Verizon. Big Red is notoriously slow when it comes to updating devices. And while the LG G2 still does not have the Android 4.4 KitKat upgrade being rolled out over-the-air (OTA), it can be done manually through Verizon’s Software Upgrade Assistant. The program, though, can only run through a Windows PC; however, having a Windows partition on a Mac reportedly works.

Simply connect your LG G2 to a USB port on a computer and install Verizon’s Software Upgrade Assistant. From there, it should instruct you how to get KitKat running on your G2. Make sure your device has enough space as the update may be rather large.

Verizon LG G2 users getting Android 4.4.2 Kit Kat

Posted by wicked April - 18 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

Verizon LG G2 users may want to be on the lookout for an update notification as Kit Kat is on the way. Big Red has shared the specifics for the update, which will be arriving as Android 4.4.2 with software version VS98024A.

The full changelog has been posted and it includes changes dealing with the indicator bar, location settings, visual voicemail, and accessibility. Sitting just below is the full breakdown for each;

Indicator Bar

  • Indicator Color has been changed to white

Location

  • The latest location specs are now reflected

Visual Voicemail

  • Premium Visual Voice Mail, which converts voice mails to text so you can read them discreetly.
  • Basic Visual Voice Mail, with a 20-message mailbox, is included at no charge.

Accessibility

  • Color Adjustment has been added
  • ‘Magnification Gestures’ label is now ‘Touch Zoom’ label
  • ‘Shades’ label is now ‘Screen Shades’ label
  • ‘Captions’ have been added
  • ‘Touch and Hold Delay’ is now ‘Touch Feedback Time
  • ‘Speak Passwords’ label is now ‘Read Passwords’ label
  • ‘Power Button Ends Call’ label is now ‘Power Key Ends Call’ label
  • ‘Easy Access’ label is now ‘Accessibility Settings Shortcut’ label

As always, an incoming software update means you have two options to consider. You can sit back and wait for the notification to arrive or go looking. Those choosing the former will have the easiest path as that involves nothing more than following the prompts. Of course, the latter isn’t difficult — it just involves a few extra taps.

Those looking for the update should grab their handset and navigate to Settings -> About phone -> Software updates -> Check for Updates. Assuming the update is ready for your particular device it will be a matter of following the prompts from that point forward.

LG G2 Kit Kat (Android 4.4.2) OTA Approved by Verizon, Here is the Changelog

LG G2 Kit Kat (Android 4.4.2) OTA Approved by Verizon, Here is the Changelog


After seeing the Kit Kat (Android 4.4.2) update for Verizon’s version of the LG G2 become available through VZW’s Software Upgrade Assistant, we figured the OTA (over-the-air) update would rollout at any minute. Sure enough, Verizon has approved it and posted the changelog for build VS98024A, which means it really should be here with a couple of days, if not today for all to download. 

The changelog talks of color adjustment, magnification gestures, and a whole bunch of other minor UI tweaks, probably to add some consistency to LG’s line of phones on Verizon. Of course, it also mentions the update to Android 4.4.2, but nothing else specific in terms of what Kit Kat offers other than new white notifications in the “Indicator Bar.”

As you all know, though, Kit Kat brings a better NFC payment system thanks to Host Card Emulation, performance improvements, better location settings controls, visually improved music controls to the lock screen, and more. Kit Kat is a pretty major update, even if Verizon doesn’t seem to realize that in this list of changes.

Let us know if you are able to pull the update!

Head into Settings>About phone.

LG L65 joins the L Series III as another mid-range smartphone

Posted by wicked April - 18 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

lg_l65_russian_press_image

The LG L65 that leaked recently is now official. The 4.3-inch IPS LCD display has a resolution of 800×480 and the design language stays true to the other L Series III devices. Under the hood, paired with 1GB of RAM, is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 200 dual-core processor that is clocked at 1.2GHz. The camera on the back has 5MP and the front has 0.3MP. The microSD card slot expands the storage by 32GB since there is only 4GB built-in. Powering this little guy is a 2100mAh battery.

The device runs Android 4.4 KitKat and is ready for sale in Russia for RUB 7,490 (or roughly $210 in USD).

AT&T G Flex Android 4.4 update rolls out to users

Posted by wicked April - 18 - 2014 - Friday Comments Off

Delivering as promised, AT&T has released the Android 4.4 firmware update to owners of LG’s curved G Flex smartphone under its care. Included in the announcement are some of the changes users should expect in this update, though most of them we have mostly heard of before.

AT&T details the most visible changes brought about by upgrading to Android 4.4, particularly the restyled navigation and status bars and the addition of fullscreen immersive mode. Of course, under the hood, we have the promise of smoother processes and smarter battery use. Android 4.4 introduced battery-saving location modes, or rather rearranged the options to make those choices clearer to users. And, of course, cloud printing also arrives, with initial compatibility with Google’s own Cloud Printer service.

The changelog does confirm our guess that LG‘s fancy Knock Code user experience (UX) feature will be arriving by way of this major firmware update. Most will probably be familiar with the feature by know, but for those still unaware, Knock Code is LG’s expansion of the “double tap to wake and unlock” gesture it put on the LG G2 last year. But instead of a rather simplistic “knocking” action, Knock Code has support for up to 8 taps in different combinations and positions on the screen, adding both personalization and security to the feature.

The carrier has not specified how large the update will be but as is the case with such major update, it will be quite big. Battery charge and WiFi connection should be double checked. And in case the update notification hasn’t arrived yet, users can always manually check and trigger the update via the device’s Settings menu.

LG G2 Kit Kat Update Available From Verizon Via Upgrade Assistant

LG G2 Kit Kat Update Available From Verizon Via Upgrade Assistant


The LG G2 Kit Kat (Android 4.4.2) update from Verizon is finally available as build VS98024A, though you can’t exactly grab it over-the-air. No, sir, this update is currently only available through Verizon’s Software Upgrade Assistant, which is only available on Windows for LG phones. Sorry, Mac homies.

In order to update on Windows, all you have to do is plug-in your LG G2, then either wait for Windows to prompt you for an action or open a folder and look for a Verizon/LG drive to appear. In that folder, you should find a SWUpgradeLauncher app that will walk you through the steps to getting your Kit Kat on. 

The update weighs in at around 2GB, so it’s substantial.

No word yet on when the update will be available OTA. In fact, Verizon’s own support pages still do not show that the update is available even though you can manually update through their software upgrade tool.

The process is pretty painless, so don’t be scared to give it a shot if you have a Windows machine. I was able to do it just fine on a virtual Windows 8 partition on my iMac.

Cheers Justin, Jake, adilson, and everyone else!

New LG L65 appears to be joining the L Series III family

Posted by wicked April - 17 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

lg_l65_leak

A new image has surfaced via Twitter tipster @evleaks of an LG L65 smartphone. Although this model number was not mentioned by LG back in February prior to MWC 2014 when they announced the L Series III model line, it looks like it will be part of that family of devices. According to the leak, the screen size will be 4.3-inches, just a tad smaller than the LG L70 which comes with a 4.5-inch screen. The 5MP camera will match some variants of the L70 and the 1.2GHz processor is right in line with the rest of the L Series III line.

The other devices in LG’s most recent L Series all come with Android’s KitKat operating system so we expect the L65 will be equipped similarly. LG has not officially confirmed this device and no pricing, release date or market availability information is known.

AT&T starts rolling out Android 4.4 KitKat update for LG G Flex

Posted by wicked April - 17 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

LG_G_Flex_Back_LG_Logo_TA

AT&T has announced that they have started to push out the Android 4.4 KitKat update for the LG G Flex smartphone. The G Flex is LG’s entry into the “flexible” display market to compete with Samsung. You do remember when there was a race on to see who could get devices with curved or flexible displays  to market first?

When the LG G Flex was first released, it came with Android 4.2.2 loaded and we were worried about future updates given LG’s history. This update is a nice sign that LG is joining other manufacturers in recognizing that Android device owners do not want to be locked into an older version of the operating system.

AT&T indicates the update brings the enhancements of KitKat to the G Flex and better battery performance. AT&T is recommending users have at least 50% battery life and be on WiFi when they start the update process. If a user does not want to wait for the update to be pushed to their device, they can go into Settings -> General -> About phone -> Software Update -> Update Now to force a manual update.

LG Lucid 3 now available from Verizon Wireless

Posted by wicked April - 17 - 2014 - Thursday Comments Off

lg_lucid_3_brilliant_colors

Last month when images leaked of a Verizon branded LG Lucid 3, we figured the release date would be sometime in April. Verizon has met that expectation with the LG Lucid 3 now available online for free with a two-year contract. Consumers can also get the Lucid 3 for $12.49 per month using the Verizon EDGE program or pay $300 with no contract.

The Lucid 3 is a low- to mid-level Android device, though it does come with Android 4.4.2 out of the box. The screen measures 4.7 inches and runs at 960 x 540 resolution. The Lucid 3 is powered by a 1.2GHz quad-core processor and has 8GB of memory on board which can be expanded through the addition of up to 64GB via microSD. The Lucid 3 does support 4G LTE and comes with a 2,440 mAh battery. Being an LG device, it does come with the company’s KnockON technology to quickly turn the screen on or off and LG’s QSlide to let users run two apps at once via a smaller, resizeable window for one of the apps.
