A new report about the state of 4G LTE coverage around the world has been published by UK-based business OpenSignal, which creates crowd-sourced mobile network coverage maps from its Android and iOS apps.
The report looks at two key concerns: download speeds and the proportion of time spent in an area covered by an LTE service.
LG Electronics has announced the LG G Pro 2 smartphone today.
It’s a successor to the LG G Pro, which was revealed in February last year. South Korea is currently the only market confirmed for the LG G Pro 2, although wider availability is expected to be announced during or after Mobile World Congress.
LG Electronics has launched a new Android smartphone with a display that curves from top to bottom, following the shape of the user’s face.
It follows the announcement of Samsung’s Galaxy Round handset, which has a curve along the vertical axis. Both devices are being launched in South Korea.
Samsung Electronics has announced a new addition to its Galaxy S4 smartphone range.
Its Galaxy S4 LTE-A is described as the world’s first commercially available LTE-Advanced smartphone, which means it’s capable of supporting data speeds even faster than standard 4G connections.
Samsung Electronics is reported to have bought a 10% stake in smartphone and tablet manufacturer Pantech.
Pantech is South Korea’s third-largest handset maker after Samsung and LG.
