LG G5 prototype is up for sale in Dubai

There have been plenty of leaks about the LG G5 smartphone ahead of its official unveil. So far, we know that the device is supposed to have an always-on LCD display. We've also seen some images of a prototype device leak that were crammed inside some sort of ugly, blocky case. Comparing the images in the previous leak to the images, you see here that claim to be an LG G5 prototype that is for sale and there are some similarities, but some differences as well.

LG Pay might not debut at MWC 2016 after all

LG Pay might not debut at MWC 2016 after all

Based on recent leaks and official announcements, LG has a lot to showcase at MWC 2016 next week. Ironically, one of the perhaps most interesting product it has won't actually get any stage time at all. Korean media are reporting that LG officials revealed that LG Pay, the company's upcoming mobile payment system, won't actually be unveiled and demonstrated at the event. The reason, at least say the officials, isn't because the product is going to be delayed but because they want to give more focus on the LG G5 instead.

LG Stylus 2 heading to MWC 2016 with nano-coated pen tip

LG Stylus 2 heading to MWC 2016 with nano-coated pen tip

It might not be too far-fetched to say that Samsung has a unique spot in the market when it comes to stylus-toting phablets. That, however, isn't going to stop LG from coming up with its own. In fact, at MWC 2016 next week, it will be putting up on display the LG Stylus 2. While LG has definitely leveled up its game for this particular device, the Stylus 2 remains what its predecessor clearly was: a mid-range, and hopefully affordable, smartphone equipped with a stylus with a somewhat rubbery tip.

LG TONE Platinum puts Harman Kardon inside sleek BT headsets

LG's TONE line of wireless headsets has been around the block already a few times but at the upcoming MWC 2016, it will be showcasing something a bit different. For one, the new TONE Platinum Bluetooth headset gives justice to its name, with its premium looking aluminum housing. But more than just the looks, it also flaunts sound quality that is delivered through a combination of multiple technologies, like Balanced Armature and aptX, and certified with Harman Kardon's iconic brand.

LG X series bringing camera, screen choices to mid-range at MWC 2016

LG X series bringing camera, screen choices to mid-range at MWC 2016

LG has seemingly adopted a new strategy. Doing aways with its previous generations of smartphones, the Korean OEM is taking a new approach that seemingly addresses specific needs instead of a broad market based on price tags. Saying that not one size fits all, it has debuted the K series with, supposedly, a focus on wallet-friendly smarpthone photography. Now it is announcing another new series, this time starting with the letter "X". The LG X cam and X screen only share the same name, and maybe the same price range, but their purposes are distinctly different.

T-Mobile launches LG K7, Windows 10 Alcatel OneTouch Fierce XL

Just as the been pre-announced last month, a new kind of Alcatel smartphone has arrived on T-Mobile's shelves. While the carrier already has the OneTouch Fierce XL in its list, that one ran Android as expected. This new version, however, runs on Windows 10 Mobile, making it the first smartphone on T-Mobile's portfolio running that particular operating system. But as if to balance the forces and keep peace during Valentine's Day, T-Mobile has also launched one of LG's most recent budget-friendly, photography-oriented Android smartphones, the LG K7.

LG G5 might also have an Always On display but with LCD

LG G5 might also have an Always On display but with LCD

Yesterday we saw Samsung trying to trademark the phrase "Always On Display" in Korea, which was a strange move considering how that phrase has been used in smartphone features already. Now we're seeing part of its motive for doing so. It's compatriot and rival LG apparently is doing something similar with its own upcoming flagship. An animated GIF now hints that the LG G5 will also have an Always On feature like that rumored for the Galaxy S7. The difference is that LG might be sticking to LCD instead of OLED for this feature.

LG G5 day confirmed for Samsung Galaxy S7 night

LG G5 day confirmed for Samsung Galaxy S7 night

While Samsung may have the night all wrapped up with the Galaxy S7, LG has chosen to reveal the LG G5 in the afternoon. This set of events, it turns out, will be taking place on the 21st of February - later this month - in Barcelona, Spain. That's during Mobile World Congress 2016, where both events will be taking place outside of the main event center. It's the invite that has us baffled the most, it being animated with a walking robot and a bouncing fish... thing.

LG G3 owners vulnerable to a big security bug, fix available

LG G3 owners vulnerable to a big security bug, fix available

The LG G3 was the Korean manufacturer's 2014 hero smartphone and came with a new feature called Smart Notice, LG's sort of answer to Google Now, Siri, and rival Samsung's S Voice. As convenient as that feature may be, its convenience apparently came with a price too high to pay. Researchers BugSec Group and Cynet have come across a gaping hole in the software that exposed each and every LG G3 owner to potential data theft and hijacking of their smartphone. Fortunately, LG now has a patch ready.

LG Pay White Card leaks with LCD strip, buttons

LG Pay White Card leaks with LCD strip, buttons

When LG revealed that it was indeed preparing a payment system to take on Samsung and Apple, it was said that it would be different. And by different, it apparently meant it would be different from wireless, mobile payment systems and, conversely, similar to physical payment cards. At least to some extent. Leaked photos from a Korean news site revealed what is supposed to be the LG Pay "White Card", a credit card like plastic that can actually contain multiple cards and then be used normally like any other card.

LG K10, K4 launch globally, but K7 missing from roll out

LG K10, K4 launch globally, but K7 missing from roll out

Getting its alphabet soup in order, LG unveiled a new K series of smartphones before and during CES 2016 early this month, starting off with the K10 and the K7. The K line's proposition was simple and familiar: a budget friendly selection of low to mid tier smartphones with LG's own brand of user experience. The K series, however, also made an emphasis on cameras and selfies, though only the K10 probably matches the bill. Now LG is unleashing to K smartphones, the K10 and the K4, to the global market. Strangely, the K7 is MIA.
