This evening we have some great mobile stories for you. The LG G3 is making another round of rumors, all while the Meizu MX4 is shopping for the right processor and Google is joining a competitor’s social network.
We have seen very interesting circular widgets on the LG G3 before. We can assume this will be how the phone will interact with the official case, but so far we have seen no details on this feature. Today’s @evleaks image does show us a bit more, though.
It seems this feature will have more functions than these case/phone combinations ever offer. From health apps to callers and clocks, we seem to have it all here.
Opinion: I love what LG has been doing the past couple years and can’t wait to see more on the LG G3. This feature could make the phone much more interesting than rumors put it out to be.
Meizu’s need for 4G LTE connectivity was reason to believe the Chinese manufacturer would opt for Qualcomm, breaking a Samsung partnership of many years. This may no longer be the case, though.
The Samsung Exynos 5430 octa-core processor is said to have more power than Meizu could ever demand for the next-generation smartphone. The SoC is able to run a 2560x1440p display, comes equipped with 4G LTE and will even take care of 4K playback.
Opinion: It’s always good to keep your alliances close, especially when it’s as big as Samsung. Given the option, we doubt Meizu would opt for Qualcomm.
Today’s Google doodle is all about the Rubik’s cube. You could solve the cube straight from your browser, but that is not all the news this day brought from the Search Giant. This cube also inspired Google to “do more with squares”, so they joined Instagram!
You can now follow the Search Giant and all their vintage images/videos straight from their Instagram page. Go follow them!
Opinion: It’s interesting to see Google joining a competing social network. Even if Google+ and Instagram exist in different realms.
Today's Rubik's Cube doodle got us thinking—maybe we could do more with squares? Introducing Google on Instagram: http://t.co/VdqVtpFjWb
