It was in November (just last month) when we discovered that LG is on the brink of rolling out a spanking new Android-powered smartphone sometime in 2013 – preferably in the earlier part of the year, of course, as anything later might not bode too well. This will be a flagship smartphone for LG, where it is tipped to continue from where the LG Optimus G left off, and assuming there is a need for continuity in the naming convention, the new flagship could be called the LG Optimus G2. This upcoming smartphone is tipped to go up against the likes of the Samsung Galaxy S4, although we have heard reports of it ditching the 5” display, and will instead come with a larger 5.5” display, clearly placing it in the Galaxy Note 2 territory.
Either way, it will come with a Full HD display – meaning there will be 1920 x 1080 pixels for your eyes to enjoy, with a very high chance of it running on Android Key Lime Pie (in all probably version 5.0), LTE connectivity, a 2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Prime processor, and a high end camera behind.
LG Works On Nuclun 2 Chipset
LG has been rather quiet about developing its very own mobile chipset design for some time already, where the first Nuclun SoC will soon be followed up by – surprise, surprise, the Nuclun 2. This is not the first time that the Nuclun 2 name was brought up, and up till now, there has been no devices that were released with Nuclun 2 at its heart, although that might change with the upcoming V10 successor if rumors prove to be correct.
In other words, the LG V10’s successor will most probably be released some time in the second half of the coming year, which means it will be some time before it ends up as a shipping product. It also remains to be seen whether the Nuclun 3 will hit the streets in the near future, but as with most other cases, patience is definitely called for.
LG V10 Purchase Comes With 200GB MicroSD Card
So, you are thinking of upgrading your smartphone to a newer model that will be more suitable for your use, especially when it comes to storage? Well, why not take the LG V10 into consideration, as right now, LG is about to launch a new promotion that will see you be on the receiving end of a free 200GB microSD memory card, an additional 3,000mAh battery, and a battery charging cradle if you happen to bring home an LG V10 between October 30 and November 15 this year.
Of course, there are caveats to look out for. Eligibility is based on purchasing the LG V10 from a carrier, national retailer, or online dealer, and some of the qualifying retailers include the likes of AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, Amazon, Best Buy, or a carrier-authorized retailer. After picking up the phone, you then have to submit details such as contact information, the purchase location of the smartphone, a snapshot of the V10 box with its accompanying IMEI number, and an upload of a legible copy of the receipt. Online submissions will have to be received by November 30, while mail-in submissions have the leeway of being received by December 7, although it needs to be postmarked by November 30.
LG V10 Comes In Gold
Well, well, what do we have here? Apparently, the recently announced LG V10 smartphone that is obviously one of the high end handsets from the South Korean manufacturer has arrived in a new shade of gold as well – which will definitely give it a far more premium look that what it would normally come in.
This is made possible thanks to the Vietnam-based company that is known as Karalux, where this particular handset has made its way to their portfolio while sporting a gold plating on the outside. According to Karalux, the entire process will take anywhere from three all the way to four non-stop working hours to complete. As the entire shell of the LG V10 happens to be made out of stainless steel, the gold-plating process is hence rather easy and quick – which is a good thing for those impatient magnates out there. The asking price for this process will be approximately $180 thereabouts – any takers?
