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... 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... 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... Read more...
If you’re sick and tired of hearing about the Samsung Galaxy S10, here’s an Android device of a different flavor that will also be announced later this month. We now have some official renders of the production version of the LG G8 ThinQ smartphone.  The images come courtesy of everyone’s favorite gadget leaker, Evan Blass. We see the smartphone from every angle, and we can discern that the smartphone still features a notch in the top-center of the display. This is a rather interesting design choice as the large notch is “so 2018”, as many Android OEMs –... Read more...
LG is gearing up for a big MWC 2019 showing and is already teasing its flagship device that will be unveiled at the show. LG has in the past teased a device using a Snapdragon 855 SoC and packing a 5G modem for the show, but it's unclear if that device is the G8 ThinQ. LG has now announced that it has teamed up with Infineon and that the LG G8 ThinQ to be unveiled at the show will pack the new Infineon REAL3 Time-of-Flight (ToF) image sensor chip. LG says that the new sensor is going to play a critical role in the front-facing camera of the G8 ThinQ smartphone. The sensor builds on the combined... Read more...
In a report yesterday, we told you that LG is looking to say goodbye to touch as it embraces gesture controls in its upcoming smartphones. Today, LG is giving even more insight into what it will be showing off at MWC 2019, which is being held in Barcelona, Spain next month. LG says that its newest flagship will sport Qualcomm's brand new 7nm Snapdragon 855 SoC, which will be all the rage for devices launching this year. In addition, the smartphone will feature 5G connectivity, likely made possible by Qualcomm's Snapdragon X50 5G modem. If that wasn't enough, LG also said that it will... Read more...
In just a few weeks, this year's annual Mobile World Congress (MWC) will be upon us, and we are expecting several product announcements.

LG also links to its LG Mobile Facebook page and Instagram account, though neither one offers up any additional information. If you want to be one of the first to know what's going... Read more...

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.

With Christmas over and 2019 only days away, it's time for gadget and tech fans to start looking forward to CES 2019, which is kicking off early next month.

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... Read more...
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... Read more...
