Today the folks at LG are attempting to break up the wave of Apple iPhone 6 hubbub with a note on the LG G3. They’ll be pushing this phone with a deal between September 9th (today) and the 22nd of this month for the phone with a free extra battery and battery-charging cradle. Sound like the battery doubling you’re looking for?
This week we’ve seen one whole heck of a lot of new products from some of the top technology brands in the world. While many devices are unique, some products released this week will go head-to-head with their contemporaries’ devices revealed within hours of one-another. What’s are must-see, must-experience, or otherwise most awesome products we’ve gotten up close with this week? Let’s have a look!
The LG G Watch R came as a surprise. LG had already played its Android Wear hand with the G Watch at Google I/O, and while the square-faced smartwatch was functional it was hardly a stand-out design aesthetically. Turns out, though, LG had already been working on its sibling for more than two years, a round-faced wearable that's far closer in appearance to a regular watch. I sat down with LG and the G Watch R to find out more.
It would appear that LG just couldn’t help themselves, releasing information about the LG G Watch R before the watch itself is sent up in its own release. Instead, LG is releasing data on the round P-OLED that’ll rest at the heart of this wearable.
Three teams of creators have shaken hands to create the Vortex VR, a virtual reality headset that uses the LG G3 as its display. This device is a result of the combined efforts of 3D Systems, LG Electronics MobileComm USA, & VR pioneers GameFace Labs for headset hardware, the LG G3 smartphone, and software for this system respectively.
An OLED TV with sexy curves and a crystal-studded stand? Things can't get any more premium, or flamboyant, than that. But that is exactly what LG is adding to its IFA 2014 shelves. The consumer electronics giant has teamed up with renowned Austrian crystal producer to come up with a limited edition Curved OLED TV that is promised to look exquisite in your matching premium-looking living room.
It’s time for new smartwatches from LG and Samsung - at last? While Samsung has been releasing smartwatch after smartwatch over the past couple of years, LG has just begun. Both competitors released their first Android Wear smartwatches earlier this year at Google I/O for developers - now they’re already in their second wave, so to speak.
LG is showing off its G Watch R smartwatch ahead of its debut at IFA 2014, the company's latest Android Wear device. The maker has squeaked ahead of Motorola and is hailing its upcoming wearable as the first watch-style wearable offering consumers a round plastic OLED display. If all goes as planned, we'll be seeing this new wearable arrive in Q4.
In the war for most round smartwatch on the market, Motorola had - until now - held the monopoly with the Moto 360. Or they would have, had they actually had the resources - or the foresight - to release the device before the rest of the world had the chance to release one first. LG is taking the open shot - so is Samsung - and now Motorola may be caught with their pants down.
