Did you wake up this morning and think to yourself that the world would be a better, more convenient place if only there existed another mobile payment system? The thought occurred to LG Electronics at some point, and so the South Korean electronics firm announced through social media that it plans on entering the fray with LG Pay."It's official! We have partnered with Shinhan Card and KB Kookmin Card to prepare for the launch of LG Pay," LG's mobile arm posted on its Facebook page.LG has partnered with Korea's two largest credit card companies to introduce LG PayThat's all LG is saying on the...

Wireless carriers are making a push towards having customers purchase smartphones through monthly installments rather than offering subsidized pricing attached to two-year commitments, but fear not, there are some cheap options out there. One of them is found at Walmart -- it's an Android handset that sells for under $10.The LG L15G Sunrise is a pre-paid TracFone that goes for $9.82 at the mega-retailer that sells everything from diapers and baby formula to hunting gear and fishing supplies. As you can imagine, a $10 phone isn't going to give Samsung's Galaxy S6 or Apple's iPhone 6s Plus a run... Read more...
Sales are about to commence for LG’s latest super-smartphone, the V10, and the first two carriers to take the plunge are AT&T and T-Mobile. AT&T is charging $23.34/month, $29.17/month and $35/month for Next 24, Next 18 and Next 12 install plans respectively. If you choose, to go with an “old school” two-year contract, you’ll pay $249.99 upfront. T-Mobile, on the other hand, will allow you to purchase the V10 for $0 down, plus payments of $25/month for 24 months. Verizon Wireless will be the third carrier to offer the carry the smartphone, but it hasn’t yet announced its rollout plans. If... Read more...
LG's flagship Nexus device for 2015, the Nexus 5X, is now on sale in the Google Store. Pricing starts at $379 for what's essentially a higher-end mid-range device, if that makes sense, and includes 16GB of built-in storage. For an extra $50 ($429 total), you can double up on storage and pick up the 32GB version.The Nexus 5X is an interesting product for the price. It has a 5.2-inch display with a Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) resolution (423 ppi) protected with Corning Gorilla Glass. Powering the handset is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 hexa-core processor clocked at 1.8GHz with Adreno 418 graphics and... Read more...
LG will have bragging rights as the first Android OEM (save for Google’s Nexus devices) to deliver the Android 6.0 Marshmallow update to customers. There’s one big stipulation here though for those that are right now rushing to the Settings menu to check for new updates — the Marshmallow update is only available to G4 customers in Poland. And unfortunately, LG hasn’t provided a rollout schedule for the rest of the world.  If you recall, LG made similar claims last year about being the first to deliver Android 5.0 Lollipop, also to LG smartphone owners in Poland. We’re not so sure what makes... Read more...
We spent some time with LG today at the official unveiling of the company’s brand new V10 smartphone and new LTE-equipped Urbane smartwatch. Although the event was supposed to mark the premiere of both of these new devices, news actually broke Wednesday night with all of the technical details and tons of visuals. You can check out our initial coverage right here but today we got a live hands-on experience with the goods (make sure you hit that YouTube play button below). The event in NYC began with LG President Frank Lee taking the stage to show off the V10. Unlike the so many flagship smartphones... Read more...
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...
