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,...

Football fans know that the biggest game of the year is right around the corner. Many fans are looking to get a bigger screen in their living room to enjoy the game, and TV makers are offering up big discounts. Yesterday we mentioned a big sale on TCL 4K Roku smart TVs over at Amazon. If you have the budget for something fancier, LG has announced significant price cuts on its B8 series OLED TV models that offer up to $1,000 off the normal retail price. LG is offering two models with big discounts, the 55-inch B8 initially sold for $2,299.99 and with the discount for the big game the TV can be had for $1,499.99. If you want a larger screen, the 65-inch B8 that initially sold for $3,299.99 is now... Read more...
LG is planning to introduce a couple of interesting 'UltraGear' monitors at the Consumer Electronics Show next month. One is a 49-inch model (49WL95C) that is intended for productivity, and the other is a 38-inch model (38GL950G) that is designed primarily for gaming, with appropriate bells and whistles like G-Sync support. The 38-inch monitor sports a curved panel with a 3840x1600 (WQHD+) resolution and 144Hz refresh rate for fast-action gaming. LG also claims a low response time of just 2 milliseconds. Lighter weight esports titles are probably best suited, otherwise you'll need a meaty graphics card to take full advantage of the refresh rate at 3840x1600. Anyone who owns a GeForce graphics...

Big screen televisions are fairly common now, and even though they have slimmed down considerably since the days of rear projection TVs, they can still take up a lot of space in the living room. LG is attempting to make them less of a dominating presence. How so? The company apparently has plans to launch a 65-inch rollable OLED TV sometime next year. LG actually showed this off at the Consumer Electronics Show at the beginning of 2018. At the time, LG said its rollable TV highlighted the "distinctive technological edges and unlimited potential of OLEDs." While a bit hyperbolic (and it seems something may have been lost in translation), it's an interesting concept all the same. "It can be rolled... Read more...
LG has been flexing display technology for quite some time now—just look at the curved screen G Flex, which LG released five years ago, followed by the G Flex 2 in 2015. More recently, LG Mobile CEO Hwang Jeong-hwan confirmed that the South Korean electronics maker plans to the up the ante with a foldable smartphone. When will that happen? According to Evan Blass, a prominent leaker who goes by @evleaks on Twitter, it will debut at the Consumer Electronics Shows in January. LG Flex 2 That is right around the corner, with the annual event kicking off in a little over two months in Las Vegas. It's not clear when LG might actually launch a foldable phone to retail, as a lot of the products... Read more...
Smartphone makers seem intent on finding out exactly how much money they can get away with charging for their flagship phones, with several models now topping the $1,000 mark. Traditionally, wireless carriers would let customers spread the cost over a period of 12 or 24 months. T-Mobile is taking things a step further, however, with a with new 36-month installment plan. Being able to break up payments for a pricey smartphone over the course of three years can translate into a lower monthly phone bill. Buyers obviously aren't saving anything in the long run—a $1,000 smartphone is still $1,000, whether it's paid for right away, in a year, in two years, or even three years—but the smaller...

LG is getting ready to release a 31.5-inch FreeSync monitor with a 4K resolution, HDR support, and high color fidelity for what we hope will be a relatively affordable price. While the MSRP has yet to be announced, word on the web is that it will cost around 55,000 yen, which is a little over $480 in US currency. According to the monitor's product listing on LG's website in Japan, the new monitor sports a VA panel boasting 95 percent coverage of the DCI-P color space. It has a rated response time of 4ms (GTG), a 60Hz refresh rate, 3,000:1 contrast ratio, and 178-degree viewing angles (horizontal and vertical). For the most part, this looks to be a higher end display. Where it seemingly falters,... Read more...
It looks as though LG wants you to ThinQ about purchasing another flagship smartphone, and is preparing for the release of the V40 ThinQ. This new high-end smartphone would serve as the follow-up to the V30 that we reviewed back in late October and the V30S ThinQ. What's interesting about the V40 ThinQ is that it will reportedly have a total of five cameras onboard. There will be two cameras up front that will aide in 3D facial recognition along with a rare triple-camera setup on the back. This arrangement will allegedly consist of 20MP, 16MP and 13MP cameras that will handle ultra-wide-angle, wide-angle and telephoto shooting. According to ETNews, LG doesn't want... Read more...
There may not be a whole lot left to discuss about LG's upcoming G7 ThinQ smartphone by the time LG officially unveils the handset during a scheduled press event on May 2. In this final week leading up to the launch, several leaks and details have emerged, including the fact that the G7 ThinQ will sport an eye-searing 1,000 nits brightness level. It will also pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 system-on-chip (SoC), and if you're wondering how the handset will perform, there are couple of leaked benchmark scores to analyze. Geekbench is a popular landing spot for benchmarking unreleased phones, and the G7 ThinQ has now made its obligatory appearance. According to Geekbench's database entry, the phone... Read more...
It seems as though we're in for a "notch" filled 2018, as OEMs are coming out of the woodwork with smartphone designs that are eerily similar to iPhone X. At least one OEM, ASUS, was rather brazen about its decision to mimic the look of Apple's latest flagship with the ZenFone 5 family, decrying that it is giving the people what they want. Now it looks as though LG has also been bitten by the bug; that is if these leaked images are indeed accurate. A smartphone that is labeled as the LG G7 was being displayed backstage at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, and you can clearly see that it has a rather large notch at the top of its display. The smartphone is said to feature a 6-inch OLED display... Read more...
The smartphone world never stops spinning, and there is always something new and shiny right around the corner. Or as it pertains to LG, around the block and down the road a piece. Word on the web is that LG is working on a new flagship smartphone codenamed "Judy" with an anticipated release (or announcement) coming in June. If the early information proves accurate, Judy will feature a bigger display than LG's current flagship, the G6 (an excellent we phone, we might add). LG's 'Judy' phone will have a bigger display than the G6 (shown above) and faster hardware. Though the LG G6 sports a 5.7-inch display with a 2880x1440 resolution and 18:9 aspect ratio, Judy's display is getting stretched out... Read more...
Some big names are ponying up millions of dollars to own a piece of eMagin, a producer of miniature organic light emitting diode (OLED) displays that have mostly been deployed to military, medical, and industrial fields. In a recent filing with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), eMagin announced a new stock issuance with Apple, LG, Valve, and others investing over $10 million into the relatively small outfit. The company released a subsequent statement indicating an upsized $11.5 million underwritten public offering, of which it expects to net $10.6 million. It intends to use the proceeds for "working capital and general corporate purposes." More specifically, eMagin has been increasingly... Read more...
LG is coming off its biggest year ever, in terms of overall revenue—it generated 64.1 trillion South Korean Won (around $55.4 billion U.S. currency) during all of 2017 and across all of its divisions, a 10.9 percent jump from the previous year. It also generated its highest profit since 2009, coming out ahead 2.47 trillion KRW (~$2.23 billion), so there is plenty to celebrate. However, its mobile division has been struggling, especially in China where LG has reportedly decided to stop selling smartphones. A Chinese-language news report quotes a representative at LG's Beijing office as saying that LG is pulling its "mobile phone business out of China." While this has not been confirmed by...

Back in March of 2017, LG ran into a problem with some of its smartphones that involved a continual reboot loop (bootloop), which resulted in a class action suit. The bootloop suit covered the LG G4 and V10 devices originally, but the V20, Nexus 5, and G5 were later added. LG is now offering a settlement that class action members should be happy about. The settlement will either give owners of affected devices $425 in cash or a $700 rebate towards a new LG smartphone. As of now it doesn't appear that the settlement has been certified by the courts, but it certainly seems like a decent deal. The plaintiffs in the LG suit were represented by Girard Gibbs LLP. LG admitted the problem existed... Read more...
