LG is working on a SteamVR headset

Smartphone makers are jumping on the virtual reality train and most of them, unsurprisingly, put the smartphone at the center of it. That’s true even for Samsung, even though it has gone its own path rather than get behind Google’s Cardboard, and now Daydream, platforms. LG is finally following suit but it is following HTC’s lead instead and in more ways than one. Not only is it aiming for a PC-powered VR experience, it is also using the same SteamVR platform as the HTC Vive.

This is how much the LG G6 will cost

This is how much the LG G6 will cost

It is the case these days that, with some exception, most companies don’t completely reveal critical availability details for a newly announced product. And by “critical”, we mean when it will actually start selling and for how much. This gives said companies enough time to adjust their figures in between announcement and launch. Lately, however, companies have started to shorten the gap between those two dates. The LG G6, for example, will go on sale starting March 10, at least in Korea. It’s price tag, however, might not be something you want to hear.

LG G6 gets a T-Mobile unboxing, AT&T, Verizon launch in spring

LG G6 gets a T-Mobile unboxing, AT&T, Verizon launch in spring

The LG G6 is live and official and is definitely one of the most interesting smartphones this year. Its 18:9 screen is just begging to be tested in the real world. That said, LG has so far left out the details of when the smartphone will actually land in the real world. Unsurprisingly, major US carriers are quick to jump on board and give us at least a season. At least one carrier goes the extra mile, or even more, to bring us what is calls the world’s farthest unboxing.

LG G6 hands-on: It’s all about this amazing screen

LG G6 hands-on: It’s all about this amazing screen

If at first you don’t succeed, go back to basics and squeeze out the best of the best features minus all the gimmicks: that’s just what LG is doing with the highly anticipated G6. It's 2017, and it’s abundantly clear that, since the launch of the G5 and the abject lack of interest in the whole "module" concept, it’s time for the Korean mobile phone manufacturer to make a sharp about-turn and focus on what matters most: making a solid phone. That being said, when I met with LG’s designers for both devices in South Korea earlier this month, it was made abundantly clear that the design of the G6 was already being considered in parallel with the G5. That helps explain why the two phones feel so very different.

2017 LG Gram notebooks get a boost to battery life

2017 LG Gram notebooks get a boost to battery life

LG has a new series of Gram notebooks for 2017, and it's launching these six different models with two key areas of focus: weight and battery life. As the name would suggest, LG Gram notebooks are designed to be lightweight, with every entry in the family coming in at just over two pounds. You might think that a slim and lightweight form factor wouldn't necessarily go well with long battery life, but LG seems to have found a compromise it's happy with in the new LG Grams.

LG X power2 boasts 18 hours battery life in a 5.5-inch size

LG X power2 boasts 18 hours battery life in a 5.5-inch size

If you though LG’s X-themed (nothing directly to do with X-Men) smartphones were a one-time thing, the Korean OEM has just proven you wrong. Just days before MWC 2017, it has announced the LG X power2. Just like the first X power, this smartphone is all about battery life. Specifically a 4,500 mAh pack that promises 15 to 18 hours of use, which is plenty for a 5.5-inch mid-range Android smartphone.

LG G6, Galaxy S8 release dates leak before press events

Samsung and LG are gearing up to officially reveal their flagship devices for 2017 in the next few weeks, and while we already know a lot about these handsets, there's one important detail about both that's still a mystery: release dates. New reports are painting a clearer picture in that regard, leaking out the South Korean release dates for both handsets.

Qualcomm and LG Car-2-X trials begin 2018 on road to 5G

Qualcomm and LG Car-2-X trials begin 2018 on road to 5G

LG and Qualcomm are teaming up on 5G and connected cars, with joint trials of Cellular-V2X set to kick off in 2018. One of a number of so-called "C2X" - or "Car-to-X" - offshoots, which includes car-to-car, car-to-pedestrian, and car-to-infrastructure, Cellular-V2X explores using cellular modems to bring vehicles into an inter-communicating mesh. Most importantly for Qualcomm, it's one of the key use-cases for 5G.

LG G6 leaked sitting beside LG G5

LG G6 leaked sitting beside LG G5

LG has practically leaked every aspect of the LG G6 except for its actual appearance. Others, however, are more than happy to provide those pieces of the puzzle. So far, we have indeed seen some inkling of the design and appearance of the LG G6, but mostly in renders. This latest leak shows what is allegedly a real model, or maybe a dummy. But for added perspective, it is shown side-by-side the LG G5, which gives us a better idea of LG’s “FullVision” display.

LG G6 teaser confirms that, yes, it will be waterproof

LG G6 teaser confirms that, yes, it will be waterproof

It’s just a few days before MWC 2017, so, naturally, LG is kicking off its marketing engines into full gear. Which means even more breadcrumbs of clues, some of which we already more or less know. Still, it’s good to see some more or less formal confirmation of those features. LG has all but confirmed that the LG G6 will be waterproof but now it is saying it as clear as this water. But as they on TV, “don’t try this at home”.

LG G6 sign-up page reveals full-metal body design

LG G6 sign-up page reveals full-metal body design

In typical LG fashion, the OEM is dropping breadcrumbs for the masses to follow en route to their LG G6 big reveal. This one, however, doesn’t come with a fancy marketing announcement but was subtly hidden as a footnote in some other page. LG has opened up registrations for getting informed when the G6 comes out (as if that will be a secret) and, in the same breath, talks about the smartphone’s full metallic design.
