Reports suggesting LG will reveal and then launch the G6 earlier than any of its past G-series flagships, continue to pile up. At this point, I think we should all be surprised if the G6 doesn’t launch before mid-March, weeks earlier than last year’s G5. In the latest out of ETnews, LG has confirmed that the phone will be unveiled at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in late February. (more…)
LG has already confirmed to the world that last year’s G5 with its modules wasn’t exactly a hit and that with the upcoming G6, they put their focus into making a phone that is great in the aesthetics department. Last night, LG Display gave us an idea as to where at least one of those improvements would start – with the display. (more…)
LG is about to kick off press day here at CES 2017 at 8AM Pacific. It looks like they will live stream the fun, so we’ve included the video above to get you in on this action too.
What will LG announce? On a mobile front, probably not much. Prior to CES, LG announced a new K series line of phones, plus some new TONE audio products, which likely means this press event will focus on the rest of LG’s range of offerings. We should see their new TVs and TV tech, an update on their high-end line of appliances, more on home audio speakers, and maybe even some vacuum stuff.
We’re at press day all day today, reporting back with the goods.
I know this LG V20 review should have been out months ago, but hey, better late than never, right? Actually, as you’ll find out in the video below, the V20 has just been one of the tougher phones to review. It’s not that LG hasn’t done some good things here, it’s just that the V20 comes off as such a niche device with a small audience that the approach to reviewing it had to be figured out too. Either way, it’s here, our LG V20 review. (more…)
Not only will LG show off a levitating Bluetooth speaker at CES, the Korean electronics giant also has new TONE audio products on the way. The two new TONE options are the TONE Studio and TONE Free, both of which offer their own unique take on the collar audio trend that LG seems to be fully invested in. (more…)
We’re starting to see the frequency of LG G6 rumors increase, which is often a sign that a phone is close to a reveal. That, of course, would match up to a recent report suggesting that LG may move up the launch of their next flagship to better compete in 2017. While we still have no confirmation of that happening or how early things may go down, other leaks are starting to provide the details we really crave, like what the phone looks like. (more…)
I love Christmas and the whole holiday season, but now that it’s all but over for 2016, I’ve got to say, that I’m starting to get excited about 2017 and Android. As much as I’d also like to sit here with everyone else and continue to complain about how sh*tty parts of 2016 is/was, there are some good things on the horizon to consider. Plus, don’t we all need some positivity in our lives at this moment? (RIP, George and Carrie.)
Think about what we just went through. Samsung made their three best smartphones ever by a large margin. Sure, one of them had an affinity for fire and probably needs to be wiped from memory, but it was still an awesome phone. Outside of Samsung, though, we saw Google create a new line of phones that they seem ready to promote and push forward in competition with Apple and Samsung and the rest of the players in the smartphone game. We also got a best-of-the-year phone from OnePlus and watched Motorola do modularity better than anyone. But where this gets good in 2017, is largely based around all of that moving forward another step or two.
Let me explain. (more…)
