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,...

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...
