Jason Statham is the LG G5’s official Hollywood promoter

It's not unusual for major brands to hire high profile personas to help market their products, even when it comes to smartphones. HTC had its moment with Iron Man, a.k.a. Robert Downey Jr. Lenovo, of course, has Asthton Kutcher. Samsung has had heaven knows how many stars and artists sing its smartphone's praises, one way or another. LG also once had Joseph Gordon-Levitt under its fingers. Its latest ad campaign, however, is somewhat mildly entertaining because if its strangeness. LG has confirmed after the fact that it has indeed acquired the help of Mr. Jason Statham to promote its equally odd LG G5 flagship smartphone.

LG flaunts UX 5.0 features ahead of LG G5 launch

In just a few days, the LG G5 will launch in key markets around the world. LG has already tireless advertised the smartphone's hardware features as well as its specially designed accessories. Now it's high time for the OEM to start singing about the software side of the equation. While Samsung has its TouchWiz, LG has opted for the unassuming "LG UX" name. Now at its fifth major iteration, the UX unsurprisingly focuses on the smartphones' modular features as well as its dual lens camera.

LG G5 Friends get priced in the UK

Android users in the US eagerly awaiting their newest flagship in the form of the LG G5 will be able to get their hands on the device in just over a week.

LG X screen, X cam start their global trek

LG X screen, X cam start their global trek

While the LG G5 was naturally the OEM's top star at MWC 2016, LG also announced two rather strange additions to its smartphone lineup. The first of its new X series, the X cam and the X screen are like the new LG K family that try to offer more affordable (read: cheaper) options for smartphone buyers. What sets the X line apart, however, is that they, or at least these two, borrow some of the unique features from LG's highend flagships, like the LG G5 and the LG V10.

AT&T brings back the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Ed LTE

AT&T brings back the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Ed LTE

It's not yet even near the second half of the year, but we're not one to complain about extremely early good news. At least hopefully it's good news. LG promised that its second Watch Urbane smartwatch would indeed be going back to the market, but it seems that it will be happening earlier than promised. AT&T has once again put the LG Watch Urbane 2nd Edition LTE up for pre-order. Presuming it isn't just a fluke, it gives hope that LG has finally resolved the issues that led to the smartwatch being unceremoniously pulled out shortly after launch.

T-Mobile sets LG G5 pre-order date on March 29, unboxes in race car

The Galaxy S7 has had its turn. Now it's the LG G5's time to get the spotlight. Or at least it will be in two weeks. If it doesn't get drowned out by Apple's big splash this week, that is. Regardless of what may or may not come in the next few days, T-Mobile is announcing that subscribers can order their G5 earlier than the rest. And, depending on when they buy, they can get some cool freebies as well. As long as supplies last, of course.

LG G5 “Lite” with Snapdragon 652 is real but still coming

LG G5 “Lite” with Snapdragon 652 is real but still coming

Considering the past two years, it's not actually surprising for LG to put out different smartphone models all bearing the same name as its flagship but with specs all over the place. What is rather unusual, however, is for it to have a flagship variant that differs only in CPU and RAM. But that is precisely the case with the so-called LG G5 "Lite" that will be making its way, perhaps exclusively, to Latin American markets. Similar in almost everything else, this variant differs by running on a Snapdragon 652 instead of the 820.

LG K8, K5 almost complete LG’s new K budget family

LG K8, K5 almost complete LG’s new K budget family

At CES 2016 right at the start of the year, LG revealed its new K line. Like some of its other smartphone families, like the L series before it, the K series is marketed as affordable handsets that won't make your wallets bleed. Unlike those other smartphones, however, LG is positioning the LG K line to have at least palatable cameras. We've seen the K10, K7, and K4 make their way to the press since then. Now the family is nearly complete, with the announcement of the K8 and K5 coming to markets this week.
