LG is expected to finally launch its second Android Wear watch next week. Two separate sources in South Korean claim the G Watch R will make its debut there on Monday, October 13 — almost two months after it was announced at IFA 2014 in Berlin — but just one retailer will be selling the device for the first week.

Samsung today announced the commercial availability of the Galaxy Note 4 in Korea from September 26th at its ‘Galaxy Note 4 World Tour: Seoul’ event. The phablet was originally supposed to be available in Korea from October but the strong sales of the new iPhones led Samsung to push forward its release date. 


Earlier today, Samsung unveiled its latest super-sized smartphone, with a declaration that it’s the only ‘true phablet’ on the market. Apart from a gigantic screen, the Galaxy W really doesn’t have much going for it — it features some pretty mediocre specifications and ships running an older build of the Android operating system.


Last week a Samsung representative reported to the Korean Media that its upcoming flagship phablet, the Note 4, will feature a ‘new form factor’. Now a new patent application has surfaced on the web that allegedly showcases this new form factor and how the South Korean company is incorporating flexible display technology.
