The LG G Pro 2 may add beefier speakers to its list of enhancements.
The successor to the LG G Pro will be equipped with a high-powered 1-watt speaker system, Korean news site ETNews said on Thursday. The bass will also be bassier courtesy of thicker speakers, while the sound itself promises to be clearer as well as more powerful. Overall, the audio output will be a 30 percent or more improvement over that of the LG G Pro, the site claimed.
Further, users will be able to adjust the sound level and other features via a dedicated app.

Anyone interested in an iPad 2 can save $100 through a new sale at Walmart.
As of Thursday, the retailer has trimmed the cost of the 16GB Wi-Fi-only iPad to $299 from the regular $399. The sale will stretch for the next 30 days and is good both online and at retail stores.

Flappy Bird, the newest and most savagely addicting smartphone game to have taken the mobile market by storm, is earning $50,000 in ad revenue each day, Vietnamese developer Dong Nguyen revealed Wednesday in an interview with The Verge.
While that's nothing compared with the insane $850,000 Candy Crush Saga -- the App Store's longtime leader in the top grossing charts -- earns UK developer King per day, it's certainly nothing to scoff at for a non-freemium game that was uploaded in May 2013, last updated in September, and remained virtually invisible for months. Flappy Bird … Read more
Although there is strong speculation that Motorola will not be unveiling any new devices during Mobile World Congress 2014 later this month, the mobile company will hold a presser on Tuesday, February 25, at the Casa Llotja de Mar.
In addition to top senior executives, Motorola CEO Dennis Woodside will also attend with an "update on the business," according to the invitation.
Motorola promises more details about the event will be released as the date approaches, but we have a strong feeling that Lenovo's recent acquisition of Motorola from Google will be one of the main talking … Read more
LG Electronics' upcoming G Pro 2 will feature an extremely thin bezel, making the face of the device feel as though it's all display, according to a new report.
The handset, which will succeed the somewhat popular Optimus G Pro, will have a bezel measuring just 0.4mm, according to a report out of Korea from FNNews. If that's the case, more than 77 percent of the device's face will be covered with display.
The report is the second rumor in as many days surrounding the highly anticipated handset. On Tuesday, LG said in a blog post … Read more
Samsung's Siri competitor, S Voice, is set for an overhaul, according to a new report.
Sammobile on Wednesday published photos of what it claims is the new-and-improved S Voice app. The app, which allows users to employ their voices to make commands, comes with a two-tone blue design and an interface that embraces flat design -- i.e., simple and minimalistic.
The leaked images come just after Sammobile showed off updated versions of Samsung's S Health and WatchOn apps. All three apps are expected to come with the rumored Galaxy S5.
Sammobile says that the new S Voice … Read more
It was just a few weeks ago I told you about the Charged-Card, a wallet-friendly battery pack designed to provide emergency power for your smartphone.
Pretty cool, yes, but a little costly at the expected retail price of $39.99 (early backers can still get in for $30), and a little limited with just one connector: Apple 30-pin, Apple Lightning, or Micro-USB.
Unfortunately for the Charged-Card folks, there's already a better product in the works: the Jumper Card, which does more for less.
Physically these two gizmos are just about identical. The Jumper Card is barely larger than a … Read more
Looks like the rumor was true after all -- Google's flagship smartphone, the Nexus 5, is sporting a new red hue, and users can buy it today at the Play Store.
We most recently caught wind of the possibility of a crimson color last week, when an internal Sprint memo detailing a red Nexus was leaked online.
However, the new shade has gone official now that users can purchase it at the Play Store.
It's still available unlocked for $349 (16GB) and $399 (32GB). Other colors include black and white, and Google sells phone bumpers in gray, yellow, … Read more
Antonio Viana, president of commercial and global development and executive vice president at ARM Holdings, said the premium segment of the smartphone market will grow much slower than the other areas -- only about 4 percent each year through 2018 versus 14 percent annual growth for mid-range devices and 17 percent annual growth for low-end phones. The high-end market will grow more in North America, he said, but Apple still … Read more
