LG has begun rolling out its Android 5.0 Lollipop update to unlocked G3 handsets in the U.K., less than three weeks after the update first arrived in Poland. The release weighs in at just over 522MB, making it the G3’s biggest and most significant update yet. In addition to Material Design, it brings a whole host of new features.

If you added a Nexus Player to your Christmas list following its official unveiling earlier this month, you might as well cross it off if you live outside of the U.S. Sources familiar with Google’s plans say the device won’t be showing its face in other parts of the world until it arrives in Europe in early 2015.

Google is giving those in Europe and Australia the chance to save when they buy a Nexus 5 and an LG G Watch. From now until September 16, the search giant will slash £60/€80/AUS$100 off your purchase when you buy both devices together through Google Play.


OnePlus has confirmed that One handsets on their way to Europe have been delayed by up to two weeks. Those lucky enough to get an invite expected to receive their devices this week, but a problem with the handset’s CE marking means a whole batch has been blocked by customs officials in Germany.

The leaked import document.

We’re starting to see initial signs suggesting that LG is currently in the process of developing a scaled-down variant of its latest flagship smartphone. Earlier today, the G3 Mini appeared in a leaked document posted on an Indian import and export data logging website. Unfortunately, the paperwork doesn’t reveal too much about the handset’s pricing and availability, but it does shed some light on the specifications that we’re likely to see when the device eventually breaks cover.
