Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P names tipped for new Google phones

Nexus 5X and Nexus 6P names tipped for new Google phones

Google's next set of Nexus devices have had details leaked on hardware, software, and now naming schemes before launch. Word today is that the smaller of the two devices will be called Nexus 5X - that's the LG-made device. The larger of the two smartphones is said to be called Nexus 6P. Does the P stand for "Prints"? Or maybe it stands for "Power". Or it could stand for nothing at all - we wouldn't be entirely surprised whatever it ends up being.

LG MiniBeam PF1000U projector needs only 15-inches to throw a 100-inch image

LG MiniBeam PF1000U projector needs only 15-inches to throw a 100-inch image

The cheapest way to get the largest image possible in your living or media room is to go with a projector and a screen. The catch is that traditionally to get a large image, you need a large space to get the projector far enough away to throw that big image on the screen. LG has a new projector called the MiniBeam PF1000U that is designed to let you have a giant 100-inch image in a very small room.

LG Nexus 5 2015 now leaked in black but with only 2GB RAM

Both IFA 2015 and Apple's large keynote event are over. While the new iPad Pro, Apple TV, and iPhone 6s are still starting to sink in, the mobile world is ready to move on to the next big thing: Google's new Nexus smartphones. We've already seen leaks of LG's version of the device but now we're getting a slightly different deviation. A black Nexus 5. That, however, might not be the most notable part of this leak, which is the remote possibility that it will only have 2 GB of RAM.

Pre-orders for LG, Huawei Nexus tipped to start 13 October

Google still hasn't actually announced a late September event that will herald the coming of two new Nexus smartphones, but if you're well rooted in the Android world, it's hard not to get even just a wee bit interested in the two. Now word on the Internet street is that the two smartphones, to be made by LG and Huawei, will start their pre-order phase on October 13. Whether that is actually the shipping date remains to be seen, but at least we now have a second date to look forward to.

LG 2015 Nexus 5 will use Snapdragon 808, says latest tip

As expected, until we see the actual device, or at least until all voices start singing in unison, leaks about upcoming devices will always fluctuate from one detail to the next. The latest victim? Why, it's none other than LG's second Nexus 5 smartphone. You know, the Nexus that isn't made by Huawei. According to the latest "reliable source", the device will bear a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 instead of an 820 or, worse, an 810, which might be for the best considering the present mobile processor landscape.

LG updates older smart TVs with webOS 2.0 features for free

LG updates older smart TVs with webOS 2.0 features for free

After being stung by the stillborn Google TV promise a few years back, LG decided to go with its own platform instead. Acquiring webOS from HP, which the latter acquired from Palm, LG has put webOS on most if not all of its smart TVs and at least one smartwatch. Continuing its show of support and dedication to its exclusive platform, LG is rolling out a free upgrade to its older webOS 1.0 smart TVs, bringing in some of the features of webOS 2.0 to the screen.

LG G Pad X 10.1 released to AT&T with 4G LTE

AT&T will be releasing the LG G Pad X 10.1 with 4G LTE data speed to their network on the 4th of September - this Friday. This device works with relatively modest specs, including a 10.1-inch full HD display (that's 1080p), and 32GB of internal storage. The big promotion point for AT&T and LG on this device is its inclusion of the DirecTV app on the device right out of the box - though, technically, you could just download the app from the Google Play app store on the tablet you already own, really.

LG’s SmartThinQ sensor can make any regular appliance chatty

LG seems to have a thing about appliances that like to talk to their owners. While this latest products aren't exactly the LINE-powered smart appliances that LG has been showing off the past two years, they definitely still have the ability to have at least a one-way conversation with you. In addition to its new Smart Lightwave Oven and Smart Air Conditioner, LG is also revealing the SmartThinQ Sensor that you can attach to almost any old, conventional appliance to make them just a little bit smarter to some extent.

LG Watch Urbane Luxe flaunts gold to make it more timely

LG Watch Urbane Luxe flaunts gold to make it more timely

We haven't heard much about LG's plans for a new smartwatch, and probably that's because it doesn't have one. At least, not in the way that Samsung, Motorola, and ASUS are expected to show in a few days at IFA 2015. What it has instead is an LG Watch Urbane Luxe, which is, for all intents and purposes, the LG Watch Urbane. Except, as the name might already hint, it is one that is earmarked for luxury, both in design and in price.
