Report: No New Android Wear Watches From Motorola, LG, or Huawei This Year

Been wondering why we haven’t seen new Android Wear smartwatches from the typical players in the game, you know, like Motorola, LG, and Huawei? According to CNET, who spoke with each company, that’s because none of them plan to release a new watch any time soon. In fact, even with the holiday approaching and smartwatches seeming like a perfect gift for your tech dad, they’ll all be passing this time around.  (more…)

LG V20 First Look and Tour!

Oh the LG V20, the return of stuff and things. In all seriousness, after really learning to appreciate the “stuff and things” of the V10, last year’s surprise sensation, I’m pretty excited for the V20 even though Nexus Pixel phones are on the horizon and the Note 7 is/was available. The V20 is just a different kind of beast that focuses on media, which means dominating audio and video.

In my short time with the V20 earlier today, I certainly came away impressed by the overall package. I don’t know that anything is new here in the sense that none of this has been done before in a smartphone, but LG has packed in a bunch of pieces that other phones have used and created a single package.  (more…)

LG V20 Specs (Official)

The LG V20 is, of course, official and you hopefully ran through our first look video of it, but we know that more than a handful of you are probably curious about official specs. Since this is the newest V-line member from LG, you know they packed in a bunch of extra goodies that most smartphones aren’t going to have.

Outside of the 5.7-inch QHD display, Snapdragon 820, 4GB RAM, and 64GB base storage, you get a secondary display, HiFi DAC (32-bit), dual cameras, intense multi-media software features, and a body made of AL6013 steel that is found in aircraft. Oh, let’s also not forget that this is the first phone to run Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.

This is the newest “things and stuff” phone from LG that isn’t really messing around much, just like last year’s model.  (more…)

Clear Ballistic Case Renders Give Great Look at Upcoming LG V20

Well, here’s the LG V20, at least according to Ballistic who have posted up renders of the device suited up in the Elsa Jewel Case. Published to the Petra website, where the case is available for purchase ($20), we get a clear look at what the V20 might have to offer.

From what these renders show us, LG is sticking with its custom skin (no surprise there), even though the device will be the first to launch with Android 7.0 “Nougat.” Additionally, the device will most definitely come with a secondary display on the frontside.  (more…)
