The LG G3 was a surprise hit last year, and many thought that surely, the phone's next version is sure to be even better given that the G3 continues to be a powerful and reliable device. While the LG G Flex 2 was released this year, the LG G4 was a no-show at MWC 2015.
A report by The Chosun claims that an LG exec ruled out the phone's release at the Barcelona event, saying "We rolled out the G3 in May last year so we do not plan to unveil the G4 at this year's Mobile World Congress and spend more time perfecting the new phone."
However, there are speculations that the phone could be released next month. A source from the The Korea Times says that April is the month that the LG G4 will be rolled out. more >>
When Microsoft announced on March 18 that they are offering free upgrades to the newest version of their operating system Windows 10 even to PC users who have pirated copies of the Microsoft OS, it made the headlines in most technology magazines. Microsoft was "willing to forgive and forget" when it comes to software pirates and rightly so, according to reports.
According to PC World, the company wants to "establish a more unified Windows ecosystem, with a modern app store and cloud services like Cortana and OneDrive. Extending the upgrade offer to pirated versions would give Microsoft a larger potential user base for those services." This was declared by Microsoft's Terry Myerson.
Microsoft is primarily targeting PC users in China, a majority of which are still using pirated copies of Microsoft XP. The report provides a background about this move as companies such as Apple and Xiaomi have established their own software and services in the country and Microsoft needs to urgently do the same. more >>

HTC is one of the most popular brands today thanks to its newly announced One M9. However, even before the MWC event in Barcelona where it announced its latest flagship, there were already rumors that a bigger and more powerful device is nearing its launch as well.
