The gang over at OnLeaks frequently ferrets out new images of smartphones well before they launch. The latest leaked renderings the publication has for us to check out are allegedly of the LG G8X smartphone. OnLeaks notes that the renderings are "maybe" the G8X, so these could possibly be of another device. The smartphone is expected to launch at IFA 2019 when things get underway in Berlin later this month. The first thing we notice is that the smartphone has thin, but certainly visible bezels all the way around. It has a notch, but the notch is a water drop shape right in the middle of the screen. It's not as polished a look as the hole punch displays the Galaxy Note 10 devices use. The smartphone... Read more...
LG has a new patent that was granted in China for a smartphone that goes beyond what the folding screen devices we have seen so far offer. The patent shows a device that has a folding screen in the middle with no seam, similar to what Samsung did with the Galaxy Fold. Things get quite different from there. LG's patent shows a Z-fold device, and as one of the images here shows, the third screen is a stand-alone unit and appears to fold back onto the front surface of the smartphone. The design would give a full front screen that looks pretty much like all the smartphones we are used to seeing today that can unfold into a device that has a screen three times as wide when needed. LG filed for the... Read more...
Next month marks the kickoff for IFA 2019 in Germany. The show opens on September 6, and ahead of the show, LG has debuted a video invite for an event that indicates it will be showing off some new products. The teaser video starts with an 8-bit style video game running on a single screen smartphone form factor. If we are to assume anything about the form factor of the device being shown off from the video, which could be a version of the LG V50 ThinQ smartphone, it would appear that the bezels are thin and there is no notch. The biggest feature of the smartphone in the video is a second screen that folds out, offering twice the screen space. The video shows a game that has a head moving through... Read more...
Folding smartphones are coming and are poised to become more commonplace in the future. LG has a new patent application that shows line art teasing a device of the future with a tri-fold design and a very cool hinge. Unlike Samsung's devices that come with a stylus that stores inside the body of the device; LG's patent shows a hinged display that curved around to accommodate the stylus. The cool part about the ingenious hinge design isn't only that the pen will always be close by, but the pen will also help prevent dirt and debris from getting inside the folded device and damaging the screen. Samsung knows all about debris getting inside folding smartphone. Debris getting under the screen was... Read more...
LG has unveiled a couple of drool-worthy gaming monitors that are sure to garner some attention from enthusiasts around the globe. The new 38GL950G measures 38 inches across and checks off nearly every box when it comes to buzz-worthy features expected today of gaming monitors. Perhaps its most impressive spec is that this is the world's first IPS monitor with a response time of just 1ms (GtG). That puts the panel on level footing with TN panels, which are known for their ultra-fast response times. If that wasn't enough, LG says that the display panel has a maximum (standard) refresh rate of 144Hz, but it can be overclocked to a dizzying 175Hz. The 38GL950G has a resolution of 3840x1600 (21:9... Read more...
If you are looking for a bit more intelligence in your "smart" phone, the LG G8 ThinQ may have a few additional tricks up its sleeve. LG is aiming to create a more intuitive and automated experience by embracing artificial intelligence processing care of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 855 SoC and their own in-house algorithms. The LG G8 ThinQ is more than just clever silicon and software, of course, and it boasts a premium build quality and expanded camera features to match. Beyond its Snapdragon 855 mobile platform, the G8 ThinQ runs with 6GB of LPDDR4x RAM and 128GB of UFS 2.1 flash storage. If you record a ton of video or have other significant storage needs, you can also slot in a card like the... Read more...
During CES 2019 there were a bunch of dazzling OLED TVs on display that promised better image quality than the LCD sets that made up most TVs at the show. Sony has now thrown down the gauntlet by announcing pricing for its brand new range of gorgeous OLED TVs. Sony's new 4K OLED TV starts at $2,499.99 for an A8G 55-inch unit with the TV shipping in May. OLED TV fans wanting a larger 65-inch screen will pay $3,499.99, with that TV available in May. Sony will have higher-end OLED TVs available as well and has announced prices on its Master Series A9G 4K OLED TVs. The segment starts at a 55-inch size for $3,499.99, and the larger 65-inch will sell for $4,499.99: both ship in May. Stepping up... Read more...
LG announced its new G8 ThinQ flagship smartphone back at MWC 2019, but it was largely overshadowed by its perennial South Korean rival, Samsung, which unveiled the Galaxy S10 family. With that being said, the G8 ThinQ is an incredibly powerful device that is equally deserving of your attention if you’re in the market for a flagship Android device. LG announced today that the G8 ThinQ will arrive in the United States starting on April 11th, and it will be available from all four major wireless carriers: Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint. While the MSRP for the G8 ThinQ is $819.99, Verizon and Sprint will be selling the device for $840. AT&T comes in a tad bit lower... Read more...
Placing an order on-line, and receiving the wrong item, can be annoying. It's also irritating when things that we didn't even order in the first place end up at our home. A man called Nick Memmo from Freetown, Mass. knows this all too well; he ordered a 75-inch TV on Amazon, and when Amazon's delivery service contractor dropped it off, they also delivered a larger LG 84-inch TV at the same time. And that second mis-delivered TV landed Memmo in hot water with the police. Because Memmo held onto the set and was coy about it, he was charged and arrested for larceny and for misleading a police officer. Officers executed a search of the man's home after their initial contact and found the 84-inch... Read more...
LG has gone official with its new G8 ThinQ phone, and if you've been paying attention over the past few months, then you already know quite a bit about the device. First and foremost, this is the first smartphone in LG's long-running G-Series to incorporate an OLED display instead of an LCD. OLED technology is something that we've all just taken for granted these days, and even Apple came around to the display tech for its flagship phones back in 2017 with the iPhone X. With the LG G8 ThinQ, the QHD+ FullVision Display (3120x1440) measures a full 6.1-inches diagonally (coming in at 564 pixels per inch) with a 19.5:9 aspect ratio. Powering the smartphone is a Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor... Read more...
A world of faster wireless connectivity awaits as carriers and hardware makers alike forge ahead with 5G roll outs (real 5G roll outs, that is, and not fake ones like 5G Evolution). We expect 5G to be a point of focus at Mobile World Congress, and indeed, LG is planning to introduce 5G phones at the event. Interestingly, however, LG will not be jumping on the folding phone bandwagon in the immediate future. LG President Kwon Bong-Suk recently confirmed as much during a press conference at the LG Science Park in Seoul, South Korea. "During the Consumer Electronics Show in January, LG introduced a rollable TV. This is an advanced technology one step ahead of foldable technology. We have reviewed... Read more...
MWC 2019 will be here before you know it and at the show, there will be a legion of new smartphones unveiled. Among the devices to be revealed is the LG V50 ThinQ. LG has already been teasing the device, so we know a bit about it, and now an image has leaked that claims to be of the smartphone wearing its Sprint 5G livery. A glance at the device shows that it looks very familiar. Image via Evan Blass Essentially the LG V50 ThinQ looks exactly like the V40 ThinQ that came before it, but the V50 has a yellow 5G logo on the back for Sprint duty. The back of the alleged V50 ThinQ shows the same three camera arrangement with fingerprint scanner underneath. The image of the front of the V50 has the... Read more...
So much attention in the smartphone space is paid to Apple and Samsung, but lest anyone forget that LG is also player in the premium phone market, the company is waving around its upcoming G8 ThinQ with an innovative feature that promises to deliver "exceptional smartphone audio." The LG G8 ThinQ will be the company's first phone to feature a Crystal Sound OLED (CSO) display contraption. What makes this technology unique is that it leverages the phone's OLED panel as an audio amplifier. This apparently has several benefits for the audio experience, including higher volume levels, deeper bass, and cleaner audio. "Developed in-house by LG, CSO repurposes the OLED display as a diaphragm, vibrating... Read more...
Earlier this week, Samsung announced their new 2019 lineup of 4K and 8K televisions using a display technology they call QLED. The term QLED looks suspiciously like OLED, but do the two technologies actually have much in common? After fielding a few questions about this on our website and social media, we want to clear up any confusion between them and expound on what to expect in terms of picture quality from each. We will start at the beginning with a basic LED LCD display. Virtually everyone has encountered one of these displays at some point in their life as they make up the majority of the market. These use a white LED backlight to shine through tiny red, green, and blue filters to create... Read more...
