LG, GM team up to develop Chevrolet Bolt EV

When you hear of tech companies' involvement with modern, high tech cars, it's usually limited to a few pieces of technology inside the cabin, more often than not, the infotainment system. General Motors, however, is trying to be special by involving LG, popular for its smartphones, TVs, and appliances, in the development of its upcoming Chevrolet Bolt electric vehicle. This makes LG perhaps one of if not the first major consumer electronics manufacturers to be a strategic partner in developing one of the cars of the future.

AT&T teases stylus-enabled LG G Vista 2 coming soon

Although Samsung and LG are usually painted as compatriot rivals, the latter hasn't exactly tried to always match the former when it came to product lines. Although LG did have its own take on the curved smartphone and is even rumored to have a wireless payment service in the works, it hasn't been to keen to take on the Samsung Galaxy Note series. The LG G Vista, which it launched on AT&T and Verizon last year, is one such attempt and is now getting a very slight upgrade.

LG G4 first non-Nexus to get Android 6.0 Marshmallow

Some Android device manufacturers simply slap Android on their devices and consider the job done. Some even try to make Android almost indistinguishable from Android, sometimes more similar to rival platforms.

You don’t need LTE in a smartwatch

You don’t need LTE in a smartwatch

This week LG revealed the Watch Urbane 2, a smartwatch with the ability to connect to a 4G LTE data network. This part of the watch is a gimmick. If that's what it takes to get you to purchase a watch that is, by all means, one of the nicest smartwatches on the market, then so be it. But you don't actually need it.

LG Watch Urbane 2 now has both Android Wear and LTE

When LG unveiled the classy Watch Urbane, it was quickly followed by the independent Watch Urbane LTE. The latter was almost perfect except for one thing.

As fashionable as its Android Wear predecessor, this second generation not only bumps up some of the specs, it also now carries it own network weight with 4G connectivity.
