While 5G coverage certainly isn't widely available from major carriers around the United States today, many people looking to upgrade to a new smartphone want one that is 5G compatible. One of the most recent 5G-compatible smartphones that has been announced is the LG V60 ThinQ 5G with dual screens. This isn't a folding screen smartphone like the Galaxy Fold or Motorola Razer. Instead, it has two separate screens on each side of a smartphone that opens like a book (when using the Dual Screen accessory). Three of the four major carriers have announced that they will be selling the LG V60 ThinQ 5G. On AT&T, the device will be available starting on March 20, and will be offered for... Read more...
Cloud gaming is quickly becoming a high stakes affair, and companies both big and small are figuring out how to navigate the landscape. We have seen Google make big promises with its Stadia platform, NVIDIA roll its GeForce NOW service out of beta and into the public spectrum, and now Shadow is announcing some key changes to its own platform, including a significant price cut for its entry-level tier. Shadow now starts at $11.99 per month in the United States, if paying annually ($14.99 per month otherwise). That is down from $24.99 per month previously. This gets subscribers into the French-startup's Boost tier, which provides cloud access to a GeForce GTX 1080 GPU, a quad-core CPU clocked at... Read more...
LG it is ready to jump back into the limelight with the release of its latest flagship mobile device, the V60 ThinQ 5G. As you'd expect from a flagship Android smartphone release in 2020, the V60 ThinQ 5G is powered by Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 865 SoC which is mandatorily paired with the Snapdragon X55 5G modem. The V60 ThinQ 5G follows the trend of larger displays for flagship smartphones, and enters the fray with a 6.8-inch FHD+ (2460x1080) P-OLED FullVision panel. The display features a 20.5:1 aspect ratio and incorporates an in-display fingerprint reader. There's also a punch-hole cutout for the 10MP selfie camera at the top of the display. But LG doesn't stop there; it also offers... Read more...
It looks as though LG had been gearing up to formally introduce its next-generation flagship phone, the V60 ThinQ, at Mobile World Congress (MWC), but that was before the Coronavirus outbreak threw a wrench into those plans. MWC was cancelled after several vendors pulled out of the show. So, where does that leave the V60 ThinQ? That's a good question. While we await an answer, what appears to be the first leaked render of the V60 ThinQ has emerged, courtesy of Android Headlines. As seen in the image above, the supposed render displays Monday, February 24, as the date. Before it was cancelled, MWC was scheduled to run from February 24-27. Maybe LG will still announced the V60 ThinQ on Monday,... Read more...
An image has leaked that claims to be a promotional shot of the upcoming LG V60 ThinQ smartphone. The smartphone was expected to launch at MWC 2020, however,  LG opted to skip the show altogether this year due to the coronavirus outbreak. The image is said to have come from a promotional video that was to be shown during MWC 2020 when the phone debuted. The leaked image shows off the four microphones that the smartphone will have inside. The device will also have four rear cameras, a 5,000 mAh battery, USB-C port, 3.5mm headphone port, and bottom-firing speakers. While it's not clear, the assumptions it has the V60 will have a fingerprint scanner under the front screen. The image shows what... Read more...
LG Display has been a staunch supporter of OLED (organic light emitting diode) technology, so it comes as no surprise the company will be unveiling new OLED products at this year's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Among them is a rather nifty 65-inch bendable OLED that rolls down from the ceiling. As far as LG Display is concerned, its newest take on the bendable/rollable display "points to the future of home interior design." You can think of it sort of like a projection screen, in terms of the flexible design. As LG Display explains it, the 65-inch bendable OLED can be rolled up and stored in the ceiling when not in use. "It is expected to raise the level of smart home interior... Read more...
The annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas is right around the corner, and that means a bevy of product announcements are incoming. Ahead of the event, LG announced it plans to roll out an "impressive lineup of soundbars" with premium quality audio, easy connectivity, smart functionality, and "AI room calibration." I can hear you groaning as you read that last part, and it's a natural reaction—it seems everything these days touts AI technology in some form or another. It is what it is, though. And in this case, AI room optimization promises sound that is better tailored to your living room setup, or bedroom arrangement, or wherever you might place one of these soundbars. "AI...

As the year comes to a close, companies are starting to look ahead towards the Consumer Electronics Show, which takes place in Las Vegas from Tuesday, January 7 to Friday, January 10. Count LG among the companies getting it ducks in a row. Ahead of the convention, LG is previewing three new monitors it will unveil next month. All three of its 2020 "Ultra" models have received a CES Innovation Award. Collectively, the upcoming lineup targets both professionals and gamers, though there are key differences between the three displays. LG UltraWide 38WN95C Monitor Specs and Features Starting with the largest of the three, the UltraWide 38WN95C is a 37.5-inch monitor with a curved nano IPS panel. It... Read more...

Back in early September, LG promised us all that its 2019 lineup of OLED TVs would be receiving a firmware update to support NVIDIA G-SYNC technology "in the weeks to follow." In actuality, LG probably should have said "in the months to follow" as we hadn't heard anything more about the firmware update until today. The company is now saying that the G-SYNC enabling firmware is coming this week to its most recent OLED TVs. LG says that the firmware will be applicable to the E9 Series (65- and 55-inch models), C9 Series (77-, 65-, and 55-inch models), and the B9 Series (65- and 55-inches). For those living in North America, consider yourself lucky -- you'll be the first to get... Read more...
LG has announced the launch of its latest flagship smartphone in a market that is dominated (in mindshare) by devices like the Samsung Galaxy S10, Google Pixel 4 and Apple iPhone 11. However, LG has something different up its sleeve with the new G8X ThinQ, and that comes courtesy of its dual-screen functionality. Rather than using a large folding screen like the Samsung Galaxy Fold, LG is taking a more practical approach with the G8X ThinQ by pairing it with what it calls a Dual Screen accessory. The Dual Screen pretty much acts like a case, but instead of merely providing additional protection for the phone’s display, it gives you double the screen real estate. The G8X ThinQ... Read more...
LG's 2019 line of high-end OLED televisions is gaining NVIDIA G-SYNC support, which should make for some incredibly immersive gaming experiences. According to LG, its C9 and E9 TVs have been fully certified by NVIDIA to support G-SYNC, which would mark a first in the TV market. There is no dedicated hardware in the TVs, but NVIDIA's certification process ensures that G-SYNC is supported at up to 120Hz and 1440p resolutions (with 6ms input lag). If you're running 4K content, G-SYNC is locked in at 60 fps (with 13ms input lag). If that wasn't enough, the TVs all support HDR10, Dolby Vision (at 120fps) and HDMI 2.1. Audio formats supported include Dolby TrueHD and Dolby Atmos along with AI algorithms... Read more...
LG is showing off its expanded UltraGear gaming monitor lineup at IFA 2019 in Berlin. There are three new models, including two 27-inch panels and a larger 37.5-inch model, each with an IPS screen, ultra-fast 1ms GtG (gray-to-gray) response time, and NVIDIA G-SYNC support to keep the action smooth and free of unwanted tearing. The fastest of the three is the UltraGear 27GN750. It's a 27-inch display with a 1920x1080 resolution and 240Hz refresh rate, making it ideally suited for esports gaming. Of course, you'll need a burly graphics card to take advantage of an ultra-high refresh rate, but for the most part, esports titles are less demanding than other types of games. Brightness is rated at... Read more...
Whoever opined that money does not buy happiness has never ridden on a jet ski or dined on a seafood feast at an expensive restaurant. If anything might change that person's mind, however, it could be LG's new 8K OLED TV. I mean, just look at how happy those people are in the press image above! Sure, it's totally staged, but the specs on this thing are beastly. For one, it's the world's first 8K OLED TV (88Z9), according to LG. That works out to a delightful 7680x4320 resolution, or 33 million self-emitting pixels. For comparison, that is a whopping 16 times pixels than a Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) TV, and four times higher than a 4K (3840x2160) display. Sure, there's a definite lack of 4K content,...
