It seems like it was just yesterday that we announced that we had paired up with LG to challenge developers to make great apps with their LG QPair SDK. However, it wasn’t yesterday–it was at the end of September. This challenge came with the reward of some great LG devices. XDA and LG went through every single one of the proposals sent in by developers – we had a tough time selecting the finalists – but in the end we had to narrow the entries to 9. Those 9 finalists were selected based on the innovation and originality shown in their proposals.

LG is set to follow the likes of Samsung and other manufacture its own System-on-Chip. The chip will be called “Nuclun,” and it will be used for the first time in the upcoming “LG G3 Screen,” which is debuting this week in Korea. The LG G3 Screen will be unavailable in other countries.
