We’ve seen rendered images of LG’s G Flex and its curved OLED display, but the device itself has proven elusive — until now. Argentinian broadcaster Telefe managed to obtain the phone for an in-studio hands-on video, and journalist Federico Ini has provided The Verge with additional photos.
According to Ini, the G Flex’s curved screen is 6 inches across, and the phone features rear-mounted buttons in a similar style to the LG G2‘s. The camera is said to be 13 megapixels, matching both the G2 and Samsung’s Galaxy Round, which has an OLED display that curves on a different axis. The G Flex is reminiscent of LG and Samsung’s curved OLED TVs, with the screen’s edges slightly turning inwards when viewed in landscape orientation.
YouTube has announced the shortlisted artists and videos for its first annual Music Awards, with the voting process starting today. Based on views and ‘fan engagement’, the usual internet suspects are all here, including Miley, Lady Gaga, Girls Generation and PSY (still). At the same time, the users …
Nokia appears to be experimenting with its own smartwatch concepts. In a patent application submitted in August last year, the company details a “multi-segment wearable accessory.” According to the description, and some related diagrams, it’s a plan for a modular watch than can be worn on the wrist. Images show a concept where each segment of the watch would have its own display to show content, allowing the user to turn his or her wrist to access different parts.
If Samsung’s Galaxy Gear with a camera on the strap wasn’t enough, Nokia’s concept goes a step further with its multiple displays. Unfortunately it’s likely just that: concept. It’s simply a patent application that shows the company has some concepts for a smartwatch future,…
LG has admitted that “bendable and unbreakable” smartphone displays are already in production, and we’ve heard plenty of rumors about a device known as the G Flex which features the new tech. Engadget has come across a trio of renders of the upcoming device, and we have learned from our sources that …
The Sony NSZ-GU1 Google TV device we’ve seen pop up in FCC filings has been at least partially revealed today, and it’s called the Sony BRAVIA Smart Stick. The blog post doesn’t specifically mention any Chromecast-style features, but it is an MHL dongle that runs both Google TV and Sony’s own BRAVIA apps. The features are just like Google TV boxes Sony has released before, with a remote (that the FCC filings showed is at least similar to the previous ones) that has QWERTY and voice search support. Additionally, its “picture-and-picture” feature lets users see a browser in one window and TV in another. Since it’s a true Google TV device it can install and run Android apps from the Play Store, but any other details will have to wait until it’s officially announced on Sunday (the truly dedicated can dig into the source code, linked after the break). Of course this does leave one other question: Now that app support is available as a simple plug-in dongle, does that mean Sony is going to ship plain-jane HDTVs and leave the “smart” features for add-on accessories like this one?
Update: @CJ_000 points out the web-based instruction manual is up on Sony’s site, and should answer most questions about how it works. It also lists the pre-installed apps, and at least so far, Hulu Plus is not among them. We’re not seeing any DIAL-related features available to start with, so now we really want to know when it will be available,
will it work with TVs other than Sony and how much will it cost?
Update 2: Reader Bryan points out a page in the manual that confirms this accessory is only for 2013 model year (and later) Sony HDTVs.

Following up on its initial tease from earlier this week, LG has officially revealed the G Pad 8.3 ahead of IFA. The slate’s positioned as the next step from its G2 smartphone, and the company claims it’s the first eight-inch tablet with a 1920 x 1200 WUXGA (Widescreen Ultra Extended Graphics Array) full HD screen. The device features a 4,600mAh battery, and runs Jelly Bean 4.2.2 atop a 1.7 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor aided by 2GB of RAM. Despite all that, it’s just 8.33m thick and weighs 338 grams. Software enhancements include QPair and QSlide — the former lets you receive messages and calls from JB-equipped Android phones on the G Pad itself, while the latter allows for three apps to run on-screen at once. What’s more, with KnockOn you simply tap the screen twice to wake it up. The G Pad 8.3 will be available globally beginning in Q4 in your choice of black or white with 16 GB of storage. No word on pricing just yet, but expect a hands-on once we catch it on the show floor.

Looks like white and brown won’t be the only colors on offer for Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 3 7.0 for long. Evidently set to join those variants, @evleaks recently pushed out a purported press render of the slate clad in a deep blue. Notably free of any carrier-branding, it’s unlikely that this unit is the AT&T-compatible LTE model that recently traveled through the FCC. No word on when and where this version might be available, but we’ll keep you posted about any developments.
