LG G Pro 3 specs could include iris recognition technology, Snapdragon 820 and 4GB of RAM

The LG G Pro 3 is being readied by the South Korean company, and it could turn out to be a bombshell of a device. New rumors suggest the device will come with some of the most insane specs we’ve seen in an LG phone (and any phone) yet.For starters, LG is reportedly looking to use iris recognition technology that will allow you to unlock your phone with your eyes. The details are scarce, but the thought of an iris scanner phone isn’t all that hard to believe.Samsung has reportedly been testing phone-sized prototypes of it in their research and development labs, and one Japanese company has already debuted a phone with the tech. It’s not unreasonable to suggest LG is close to debuting one themselves.Other rumored specs for the LG G Pro 3 read as follows:6-inch 2560 x 1440 displaySnapdragon 8204GB of RAM20.7 megapixel camera, 8 megapixel front32GB of […]

The Blu Could Be the World’s First Wearable Smartphone

Wearable or wrist-mounted smartphones have always been the stuff of sci-fi, movies, and video games but the people behind the Blu are trying to change that and turn fiction into reality.The Blu is a project on IndieGogo for a flexible wrist-mounted smartwatch. Its main feature is a flexible display and body that can be bent to form a wrist-worn bracelet. According to the designers, it uses a Flexible Organic Light Emitting Diode (F-OLED) display which has the ability to roll into a 5.5-inch circumference circle as well as a flexible circuit board and a flexible Flex-ion battery. The display will be protected by Corning Willow Glass which is a flexible version of the company’s Gorilla glass.Conceptually, the Blu will be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 128GB of storage.

Even the 2-year old LG G2 will reportedly receive an update to Android 5.1.1 Lollipop

It was only back towards the end of March the LG G2 saw its first update to Android 5.0.2 Lollipop. Believe it or not, this was before owners of even newer flagships — like those with the LG G3 — saw the same update hit their devices. Not too shabby for an Android device nearly 2 years old (that’s, like, 60 in smartphone years). We can’t tell you how comforting it is to see OEMs supporting older devices with the current versions of Android and it seems LG still isn’t even done with the G2 quite yet.An employee of LG software development department was reportedly able to confirm to AndroidPit that an update to Android 5.1.1 — the absolute latest version of Android available — is already in the making and will soon be headed to the LG G2. The update is said to bring more than just a bigger […]

New renders show what the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 could look like [VIDEO]

The Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is in the works by Samsung — that news isn’t surprising by now — but we could have our first idea of what the phone will look like once it heads to store shelves. OnLeaks has leaked a render of the device found on his “leaky Foxxconn servers.”It’s a CAD drawing, and its general shape tells us to expect a design similar to the Samsung Galaxy S6. That phone featured curved glass panes on the front and rear, as well as a metal frame sandwiched between. It was the biggest step in design for the Galaxy S6 line yet, and the Note sure could do with much of the same.The dimensions for the CAD drawing come in at 153.447 mm x 77.317 mm for width and height (which seems to be enough body to house a 5.7-inch display), while its depth is billed at 10.201mm, which includes […]

The Ulefone Be Touch 2 Can Be Used to Smash Walnuts and Drive Nails

Smartphones nowadays have a large variety of functions through built-in features or installed apps. But have you ever thought of using your smartphone as a hammer? Well, Ulefone shows us, in a released video, that their new Be Touch 2 is durable enough for it.The video released by Ulefone shows a Be Touch 2 being used to not only smash walnuts but also hammer down nails. What’s surprising is that it’s not the Be touch 2’s rear that’s being used to hammer down the walnuts and nails but the device’s screen which is protected by a layer of Corning Gorilla Glass 3 which may give some of the credit for the device’s durability to Corning. Either way, the Ulefone Be Touch 2 was able to survive the ordeal and come out working fine and, from what can be seen from the video, without so much as a scratch.It should also […]

Microsoft’s latest Android app helps you gather opinions from your friends [VIDEO]

Microsoft’s Garage development initiative (where they reward Microsoft engineers for creating interesting stuff on their own time) is spawning more interesting Android apps. The latest is Tossup, a new app which helps you gather opinions from your friends.The idea is for you to present your friends with some sort of decision, whether it be where to go for lunch or something as silly as what to wear to work for the day, and have everyone chime in. Tossup has a multitude of polling options such as Yes / No or Date / Time, and there’s even a way to make custom options if the built-in stuff isn’t doing it for you.This isn’t groundbreaking stuff, mind you. It’s nothing a quick text or phone call can’t handle for most situations where only a few people are involved. But if you’re looking to get quick opinions from a big group of people about […]
