It seems LG couldn't contain their enthusiasm any longer and announced their new products a day ahead of their NYC event.  The new flagship, dubbed the V10, is really looking to double-down on just about everything with two screens and dual front-facing cameras. The second screen sits just above the main QHD display to act as a ticker for notifications, weather, the time, and more.  The smaller screen keeps you in the loop without any impact in battery life, according to LG.  When the phone is in use, the 2.1 inch 160 x 1040 ticker becomes a multitasking hub which provides quick...

The U.S. laptop market welcomed a new player today. LG, which is well-known for its smartphones and (through its display division) PC monitors and TVs, is going after ultrabook users with its LG gram laptops. The systems are light and thin, resembling Apple’s MacBook Air.Named “gram” for its lightweight design, LG’s new laptop weighs only 2.16 pounds. That’s lighter than the MacBook Air – as LG is quick to point out – though not by much: the Air weighs in at 2.38 pounds. But the weight gives LG bragging rights, which it’s going to need to break into a market as well-established as this one. "LG... Read more...
Google is expected to have plenty of news to share with the public at it’s special event scheduled for September 29th. But perhaps the two most anticipated products that are set to be revealed next week are two new flagship Nexus smartphones: the Nexus 5X and the Nexus 6P. A leaked Amazon product page have given us the clearest look at the specs for the smaller of the two smartphones: the LG-produced Nexus 5X. The product page confirms a 5.2-inch 1080p display, and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor (which is curiously paired with just 2GB of RAM). The entry-level Nexus 5X (LG-H791) only features...

Rumor has it Google will introduce its next Nexus handsets at the end of this month. Until then, you can expect more speculation and supposedly leaked information, the latter of which we always take with more than a few grains of salt. That includes a photo making the rounds that purportedly shows the final design of Google's forthcoming Nexus 5 (2015) smartphone.The snapshot of the supposed final iteration comes courtesy of AndroidPit, which itself received the image from an unnamed but "trusted source." It looks nearly identical to that of a previously leaked image that was claimed to be LG's... Read more...
The Nexus 6 launched nearly a year ago with a price tag of $649. At the time, it was a pretty fair price given the high-end specs that the device shipped with: Qualcomm Snapdragon 805 processor, 3GB RAM, 5.96-inch QHD display, and up to 64GB of internal storage. A year is an eternity in the smartphone world, and some pricing adjustments have been made during the Nexus 6’s life cycle. The smartphone first had its price deduced by $150, falling to a more palatable $499. And today, that price falls by another $150 to just $349 over at Amazon.com. The new price point puts the Nexus 6 just $50 below... Read more...
A new IoT device from LG promises to make your plain-old washing machine a “smart” one by connecting it to your home wireless network. The new SmartThinQ Sensor won’t give your appliances the same functionality that new, connected appliances have, but it has some compelling features nonetheless. The LG SmartThinQ highlights the difference between true smart appliances and appliances that are “smart aware.” With smart appliances, the connection goes both ways: your thermostat sends setting and temperature info to your phone’s app and you can use the same app to change the thermostat’s settings....

If there's one thing we know about electronics, it's that gold is best! As Apple's VP of Gold Raffi Jaharian so eloquently put it, "You think gold, you think all the best stuff: jet ski, nice watch, sports...shrimp." Sure, Raffi might be a fictitious character, and maybe Apple doesn't even have a VP of Gold position; it hasn't stopped competitors from jumping on the gold bandwagon, the newest of which is LG with its Urbane Luxe smartwatch. The limited edition premium wearable was designed in collaboration with U.S. retail jewelry company REEDS Jewelers. It's made of 23-karat gold, has a handcrafted... Read more...
IFA Berlin 2015 won’t officially get underway until September 2, but product announcements are already breaking. LG is one of the companies getting ahead of the pack, announcing today its LG Rolly keyboard, which rolls up into a slender stick. It’s one of the smallest collapsible keyboards we’ve seen.The keyboard has a small stand that houses the single AAA battery and the hardware for the keyboard’s Bluetooth 3.0 support. It can connect to two devices, which is a nice touch, and you can toggle between them with one of the keyboard’s keys. The stand anchors the keyboard and can hold your phone... Read more...
LG Electronics is getting ready to officially launch its G Pad II tablet at IFA 2015 in Berlin, after which the 10.1-inch slate with a WUXGA (1920x1200) resolution will become available in key markets in North America, Europe, and Asia, the company announced today. Both LTE and Wi-Fi only versions will be available. The sleek looking tablet will feature a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor from yesteryear with a clockspeed of 2.26GHz and, presumably, an Adreno 330 GPU. Interestingly, LG didn't opt for a more modern System-on-Chip (SoC) foundation, such as a Snapdragon 808 or 810, both... Read more...
LG Display is banking hard on organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays, committing nearly $8.5 billion to producing screens based on the technology. The company expects to start mass production of the new line of displays in early 2017, at which point it will be able to pump out 7,500 sheets per month at its Gumi plant in Korea. This is the 6th generation of LG Display’s OLED display line. There is a lot to like about the new generation, both for LG and for users, assuming the displays perform as planned. On LG Display’s side, the new plant and process will result in 4.92 x 6.07-foot sheets... Read more...
There's been a fair bit of chatter over the last several months about Google's next Nexus device, the 2015 Nexus 5 (codenamed Bullhead), and we may have our first real glimpse of the forthcoming handset. The solo shot of the supposed new Nexus shows off the device's backside and, if it's to be believed, confirms that LG Electronics is in charge of manufacturing.As always seems to be the case, the picture is a blurry one, though we've certainly seen poorer quality snapshots. The pictured first appeared on an Indonesian user's Google+ account and was picked up and posted to Twitter by Marques Brownlee,... Read more...
It’s no secret that Huawei is developing one of two new Nexus smartphones for Google. LG Electronics is the other OEM tapped with developing a second smartphone that will result in a one-two punch for Google’s debut of the Android L operating system. Over the past few months, various details surrounding Huawei’s Nexus device have leaked, including word from Evan Blass that the device would feature a 5.7-inch QHD display and a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. That latter spec is becoming a bit more suspect considering that Qualcomm today said it products featuring the SoC wouldn’t ship until the... Read more...
Fragmentation is a real problem for Android. The irony is that having so much choice is one of the things that makes the Android platform so appealing. Rather than be limited to a single smartphone model from one manufacturer, users can choose from a wealth of options from different companies. Where that becomes an issue is with security, though things are starting to change.Samsung announced earlier this week that it would start doling out monthly security updates to Galaxy device owners, and then Google followed suit by committing to do pretty much the same thing with its stable of Nexus gadgets....

It might be hard for many of us to believe, but some people out there still love using flip-phones. I am not sure if it's an issue of function, or simply nostalgia, but it appears there's still an ample enough market for flip-phones that LG has decided to release one using the latest and greatest version of Android, 5.1 Lollipop. As far as flip-phones go, I think this latest one, called Gentle, hits all the right marks. It looks good (and would have been amazing ten-years-ago), and it has nice bubbly buttons for the sake of good feedback. Of course, one thing to set this phone apart from phones... Read more...
