LG G6 Mini aka LG Q6 hardware specs leaked ahead of July 11 launch

 

The LG G6 Mini aka LG Q6 seems to have visited benchmark website Geekbench revealing some key hardware specs of the phone in question ahead of its scheduled launch on July 11. The phone, as per the listing, does justify its mini credentials however it is also being tipped that it would carry the G6’s USP near bezel-less Full Vision display.LG G6 Mini aka LG Q6 hardware specs leaked ahead of July 11 launch

The  LG Q6 — LG-M700 – as per the Geekbench listing is powered by a 1.4GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 430 processor clubbed with 3 gigs of RAM. The original G6, to recall, comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor paired with 4GB of RAM inside. The LG Q6 is further said to run Android 7.1.1 based LG UX which is LG’s custom skin.

India Today Tech had previously reported that the G6 Mini was in fact in the works and that it would launch in India sometime in August-September. “Very soon India will see a variant of the G6 at a much more affordable price,” Amit Gujral who is head corporate marketing, LG Electronics India had said while speaking exclusively with India Today Tech in May. “We have always brought marquee features in our flagships and we have gone ahead, made much more efforts by our R&D to bring those features into slightly lower mid-end segment,” he had further said.

The marquee feature of the G6 is its unusual 18:9 Full Vision display. Now, multiple reports have come up seemingly confirming that the G6 Mini will indeed carry the same Full Vision display as the G6, only in a smaller 5.4-inch form factor. The screen-to-body-ratio of the Q6 will apparently be greater than 80 per cent. The notable exclusion in the Q6 is said to be the dual-camera system as the phone in question will reportedly come with a single 13-megapixel shooter on the back.

 

LG vs CM in Puducherry: Understanding the question of nomination to UT House

 

Puducherry Lieutenant Governor Kiran Bedi administers the oath of office to three BJP leaders at Raj Niwas on July 4. Official Twitter handle @thekiranbedi

A dawn-to-dusk bandh backed by Chief Minister V Narayanasamy against Lieutenant Governor Kiran Bedi shut down much of Puducherry on Saturday. Narayanasamy described Bedi’s induction of three BJP leaders into the state Assembly last week as “a shame on the Constitution and the democratic norms and conventions”, and M K Stalin, working president of the DMK, which is in a coalition with the Congress in power, accused Bedi of “indulging in actions that blatantly disregard the democratically elected government”. On Friday, Narayanasamy had tweeted a picture of a protest fast against Bedi’s “actions of being an agent of BJP”, to which the LG had retorted, “Feel sad for our most beautiful part of India… Puducherry”, tagging the official handles of the President, Prime Minister and Home Minister. Earlier on July 6, she had posted on Twitter, “Since when is application of Law a ‘murder of democracy’? [See the] law. Central Govt has [the] power to Nominate & LG has [the] power of oath giving..!”, and “How is carrying out ones responsibilities being an agent of a party? This is Govt of India direction & as Administrator I have to abide.”

What exactly did the LG do, which precipitated the latest round of confrontation with the Chief Minister? What are the provisions under which she acted? What is the background and context of that law? What is the larger process by which lawmakers are nominated to elected bodies of people’s representatives?Puducherry, Puducherry politics, kiran bedi, Puducherry CM, Puducherry LG, V Narayanasamy, bedi vs V Narayanasamy, mk stalin, indian express news, india news

Whom did LG Bedi nominate to the Puducherry Assembly, and under what circumstances?

On July 4 evening, Bedi administered the oath of office to V Saminathan, president of the BJP’s Puducherry unit, K G Shankar, its treasurer, and S Selvaganapathy, an educationist and member of the Puducherry BJP, making them members of the Assembly, and posted pictures of the ceremony at Raj Niwas on Twitter. In a press release issued the following morning, the LG’s Secretariat said the oath ceremony had been carried out “against the background of their (the nominated members) reporting the compelling circumstances they had been placed in”, following which “a careful decision was taken not to delay their taking the oath. Hence, without any public function being organised, the oath was administered in the LG’s office chamber itself.

Political parties including the Congress, DMK, VCK and Left condemned the Centre’s “arbitrariness” in choosing the three nominated members – which allowed the BJP to enter the Assembly — and the “undemocratic” manner in which they had been “secretly” sworn in. The ceremony in Raj Niwas was held on the eve of a scheduled hearing in the Madras High Court of a petition filed by a Parliamentary Secretary to the Chief Minister, seeking a stay on the nominations. The three BJP leaders had earlier met Assembly Speaker V Vaithilingam to press for the oath; however, Saminathan told reporters on July 4 that “We took the oath as the Speaker delayed the swearing-in ceremony”.

What does the law say on nominating members to the Assembly of a Union Territory?

Article 239(A), first introduced in the Constitution by the Fourteenth Amendment in 1962, allows Parliament to enact a law for the creation of “a body, whether elected or partly nominated and partly elected, to function as a Legislature” for Puducherry. Under The Government of Union Territories Act, 1963, “the Central Government may nominate not more than three persons, not being persons in the service of Government, to be members of the Legislative Assembly of the Union Territory.”

Puducherry and Delhi are the only two Union Territories that also have elected Assemblies. Delhi is governed under the National Capital Territory of Delhi Act, 1991. As per The Government of Union Territories Act that governs Puducherry, the 30-member Assembly can have an additional three members nominated by the Centre. Bedi administered the oath of office to the nominated members based on the recommendation sent by the union Home Ministry.

Where else are members nominated in a legislature?

There are two other types of nominations in a legislature: either for a community that is not adequately represented, or for members with expertise in a particular field. Rajya Sabha provides for 12 nominated members with expertise in the fields of science, art, literature and social service. In Lok Sabha, two members from the Anglo-Indian community can be nominated if the community is not adequately represented in the House. Anglo-Indian members are also nominated in nine state legislatures: West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Uttarakhand, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Jharkhand. In both cases, the purpose of nomination is mentioned in the Constitution. Jammu & Kashmir has a provision for two women members to be nominated if women are not adequately represented.

What powers do nominated members have?

Anglo-Indian members of Lok Sabha enjoy the same powers as any other member of the House They can vote during a no-confidence motion. The power is similar for Anglo-Indian nominated members in state Assemblies. In Rajya Sabha, too, nominated members enjoy the same powers as other members. In the case of Puducherry, however, nominated members in the Assembly cannot vote in a no-confidence motion nor can they vote on financial matters. Since the nominated members cannot vote in a no-confidence motion, they cannot disturb the existing majority of the ruling party. In the election for the President of India, no category of nominated member is eligible to vote.

So, why does the system of nominated members exist in Puducherry?

At the time of the debate in Rajya Sabha on the Constitution Amendment Bill, the purpose of the nomination appeared to be to allow members from a community not adequately represented to be part of the legislature. However, in the enacted law, there was no mention of representation from weaker or inadequately represented sections as a purpose of the nominations. In fact, one member argued that the concept of nomination should not be applicable at all, given the size of a Union Territory, and called for such a clause to be made available only under certain conditions. Another member felt that the union government would use this provision for ulterior motives — he referred to a situation in the Nagpur Corporation where the Congress managed to overturn its minority situation by nominating members to the body. A third member suggested the use of single transferable vote, like in the case of elections to Rajya Sabha, to nominate members. A fourth suggested the use of a Resolution in the Assembly to approve the nomination of members.

What is the process followed in the nomination to the Puducherry Assembly?

Political parties have been arguing that only the Speaker has the power to induct a member in the House. However, the law for Puducherry only specifies that the central government has the power to nominate; the process to be followed is unclear as there is no rule or notification. This is similar to the nomination of an Anglo-Indian member: while the All India Anglo Indian Association and Federation of Anglo-Indian Associations in India can send recommendation for nomination to Parliament and state Assemblies, the government has the final say in sending the names to the President or Governor for nomination.

 

Sprint’s LG G Stylo gets its Android 6.0 Marshmallow update

Sprint's LG G Stylo gets its Android 6.0 Marshmallow update

Sprint today started rolling out an official Android 6.0 Marshmallow update for one of its mid-range smartphones: the LG G Stylo. The news comes not long after Sprint updated the high-end LG G4 to the same version of Android.

According to Sprint, it “can take several days” before all owners of the G Stylo are getting the Marshmallow update, so you should be patient if you’re not receiving it today.

Released back in June by Sprint, the LG G Stylo currently costs $288 off contract, or $49 with a 2-year contract agreement. The handset is a pretty large one, as it sports a 5.7-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels. Other features include a stylus pen, LTE connectivity, 5 MP front-facing camera, 8 MP rear camera, 1 GB of RAM, and 8 GB of expandable internal memory. The G Stylo is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor, and includes a 3000 mAh battery. To find out more about the handset, check out our LG G Stylo review.

We assume that T-Mobile’s LG G Stylo (which has been available since May) will also be updated to Android Marshmallow, though there’s no word on when that could happen.

Android 6 Marshmallow update for the LG G3 official in Poland

Android 6 Marshmallow update for the LG G3 official in PolandLet’s get straight to the good news – LG Poland has just confirmed in a Facebook post that an Android Marshmallow update will be rolling out to owners of unlocked LG G3 models throughout the country. LG often uses Poland as a testbed for OS updates shortly before issuing a global rollout, so G3 owners – brace yourselves, you are in for some sweet, sweet Marshmallow in the beginning of 2016.

We first heard that this may be happening back in November, when reports claimed that an Android 6 update will be hitting the G3 between the 16th and 18th of December. A source code for the new UI was, indeed, posted on the 15th of December, but an actual rollout was, obviously, delayed a bit. But hey, a couple of weeks is no big deal, right?
Most Android manufacturers are notorious for abandoning even their flagship smartphones shortly after release, not issuing any software updates, despite the hardware being clearly powerful enough to be able to take on the new load. Now that the market is so saturated and competition is more fierce than ever, OEMs seem to be taking note of how supporting their top-shelf handsets for longer periods will leave a positive impression in users and potentially help the brand sell more units in the long term.

LG has done good by G2 owners by taking them up to the Android 5 Lollipop experience. The G3 went from 4.4.2 KitKat to 5.1 Lollipop, and will now get another major update with the 6 Marshmallow. We were pleasantly surprised to see the budget-oriented LG G Stylo get the Marshmallow update a couple of days ago, too.

Sony has also shown support for its users, both in official updates and with the “AOSP for Xperia” program, which makes life easier for custom ROM creators. And we’ve seen early beta builds of Marshmallow on Samsung’s Galaxy Note 4, which brings the new, 2015-edition TouchWiz to the older phablet. And let us tell you – Samsung actually rehashing the entire TouchWiz experience of an old phone to the newer, better version is kind of a big deal!

One can’t help but feel a bit bitter over how much time these things take, though. Android Marshmallow was announced back in May and officially released in October, yet most 2015 top-tier smartphones, and even new ones that are launching just now are still on Lollipop.

LG G5 With Metal Unibody, Iris Scanner Tipped to Launch in February

A new report emerging from Taiwan has claimed that LG may launch its next flagship smartphone, believed to be dubbed G5 if following the company’s current smartphone nomenclature, in February.

In a Weibo post, Zealer China claims that LG’s next flagship will sport a metal unibody and will pack both iris-scanner as well as fingerprint scanner. If this comes out to be true, the LG G5 may be the first phone featuring both the biometric authentication technologies.

Some more rumoured details suggested in the Weibo post include a 21-megapixel rear camera, a 5.6-inch QHD display, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. Notably, unlike most flagships this year, the LG G4 did not feature a fingerprint scanner anyway.

All these leaks should be taken with a pinch of salt as LG has not mentioned anything about the upcoming device and the legitimacy of the leaks remains questionable.

To recall, the 2015 flagship G4 smartphone was initially announced in April. It went on sale in India only in June with a price tag of Rs. 51,000. The LG G3 was the first phone in LG’s smartphone lineup to pack a Quad HD display featuring 1440×2560 pixels screen resolution.

The South Korean company recently launched LG Zero, the global variant of the Class smartphone, which will be available globally. The company announced that the LG Zero smartphone would go on sale in Taiwan followed by other key markets in Asia, Europe, and Latin America.

One of the biggest highlights of the LG Zero smartphone, similar to Class smartphone, was its metal body, and like other recent LG handsets, it featured power and volume rocker buttons on the rear panel, just below the primary camera.

LG Executive Acquitted of Sabotaging Samsung Washing Machines

A South Korean court on Friday acquitted a senior LG Electronics executive on charges of sabotaging rival Samsung washing machines at a trade fair in Germany last year.

The Seoul Central District Court dismissed the case against Jo Seong-Jin, the president of LG’s home appliance division, citing a lack of compelling evidence.

The two South Korean tech giants have been fierce competitors for years, and the washing machine spat broke out after Samsung claimed surveillance video footage from the September 2014 fair in Berlin showed LG executives, including Jo, destroying door hinges on its washers.

The court ruled the prosecution failed to prove Jo actually broke the washers or had intended to do so.

In March this year, the two companies decided to end all their legal disputes, but Jo’s trial went aheadbecause the criminal case had already been launched.

Bitter competitors in home appliance and TV markets both at home and abroad, Samsung and LG have locked horns for years over patent disputes and attack ads denigrating each others’ products.

Things got so bad at one point that Seoul’s trade minister arranged a meeting between the two firms’ top executives in 2013 to broker a truce.
