Set to be unveiled at IFA next month, LG announced a new rollable keyboard called Rolly today, labeling it as an “industry first.” The keyboard is rather unique, featuring an extremely compact, yet somewhat long design when rolled up. However, when unrolled and out for use, it has a solid full QWERTY keyboard, able to be connected directly to a smartphone and tablet via LG’s software. (more…)
Back in late July, it was reported that LG was planning a “super premium” smartphone for the 2nd half of 2015. It was thought that a second premium device for 2015 could help boost mobile device sales, but now, it appears a super premium device from LG for the second half of 2015 may not be in the works.

LG has a new tablet this week, the G Pad II 10.1, set to debut during September’s IFA in Europe.

The year is 2015 and we still don’t have a perfect smartphone. I’d argue that there isn’t even a phone that is all that close to being perfect. I’m not saying that all of today’s phones are bad, because most are very, very good and you will probably be satisfied with whatever you choose. But every single one of them includes a big “but.” Hear me out.
Over the past few years, we have seen display technology from Samsung that looks more life-like than your TV and is mindblowingly good. We have seen processors reach PC-like power and efficiency levels. RAM is insanely fast. The Galaxy Note 5 has 4GB of it, people. 4GB. Storage is also faster than ever before. We even have fast wireless charging now! Cameras are reaching point-and-shoot territory. No, smartphone cameras are coming close to eclipsing some point-and-shoots. Metals are being used. Glass is too. Phones look like high-end watches or jewelry, yet do more than a computer in many instances. Technology is, well, pure awesome right now. So why is it that every single Android manufacturer can’t make us the perfect phone.
Why isn’t there a perfect option right now? (more…)
Back in May when Google said that an update to Android Wear would introduce WiFi to almost all of your favorite smartwatches, there was plenty of excitement to be had at the added functionality in brought that no longer required a constant Bluetooth connection to a phone. Of course, LG G Watch R owners were not a part of the original WiFi party, as the watch was left off of the initial list of devices scheduled to receive WiFi. (more…)
Prior to the weekend, renders of the LG Nexus 5 (2015) surfaced that were allegedly created by schematics given to case makers. We wouldn’t normally get too excited about these had they arrived via case maker hawking their latest products, but they were created instead by tech websites looking to provide imagery of the device sans case in its potentially real form.
Yesterday, a new image surfaced that is in no way a render. This image, as far a we can tell, is of the actual device in the wild, in someone’s hand. What we have here is a white LG Nexus 5 (2015) with “NOT FOR SALE” note burned into the body just above the “NEXUS” logo. (more…)
