LG V40 ThinQ DxOmark camera score spells trouble for the company

LG V40 ThinQ DxOmark camera score spells trouble for the company

The folks over at DxOMark are now quite famous for their smartphone camera benchmarks that cover quite a wide range of brands. Noticeably missing from those reviews, however, are LG's flagships. To date, at least with its new-ish grading system, there are only three LG smartphones on its list. And the latest it has reviewed, the LG V40 ThinQ from late last year, doesn't exactly inspire confidence in the brand.

LG V50 ThinQ launch delay blamed on 5G

LG V50 ThinQ launch delay blamed on 5G

For the first time in its history, LG unveiled both a G series and a V series phone on the same day at MWC 2019 last February. The point was to differentiate the 5G-capable LG V50 ThinQ from its non-5G cousin, the LG G8 ThinQ. But while the G8 ThinQ has already started its rather quiet rollout, the V50 ThinQ apparently won't be coming anytime soon. That's because LG has opted to delay its April launch in Korea, which will probably offset global dates as well, all to better prepare for 5G.

LG transparent foldable phone patent is too dreamy

LG transparent foldable phone patent is too dreamy

There are probably three holy grails of mobile devices: a foldable phone/tablet hybrid, a flexible/deformable device, and a transparent tablet. One of those has more or less become a reality but the other two have yet to even see a prototype. That's not stopping companies from filing patents left and right in a race to "reserve" ideas for future use and it seems that LG has just been granted one of the most ambitious one of all, a foldable device that is almost all transparent screen.

LG G7 Fit arrives in the US half a year after debut

LG G7 Fit arrives in the US half a year after debut

Looking for an LG-branded smartphone that looks premium but won't break your wallet? While such phones do exist, they often exist in markets outside the US. That almost seems unfair considering not everyone can afford the high-end models these companies put out in the US. Good thing, then, that one of LG's mid-range phones is now available from Best Buy if you're OK with buying a phone at more than half the price of an LG G8 ThinQ but with less than half the features.

The best “new” phone today isn’t at Verizon

The best “new” phone today isn’t at Verizon

When I say that the best new phone today isn't at Verizon, I could really be saying any other carrier in the USA. The best new phone, you see, isn't a brand new carrier-sold mobile, it's a device you buy secondhand. It's the phone you buy using the knowhow you gain from reading reviews of phones that were, at one time, brand new. But you might be saying, where do I buy a phone like that?

LG G8 ThinQ (2019) released: Here’s why you might want it

LG G8 ThinQ (2019) released: Here’s why you might want it

The latest LG smartphone was revealed at MWC 2019 last month, but just had store dates and pricing revealed today. This is one of two major LG smartphones the company releases each year - the lesser of the two, but still the premium choice by most other smartphone brands' standards. There's the LG G line (this one), and the LG V line (the most recent of which, the LG V40, was released in late 2018) (SEE NOTE BELOW).

LG V50 ThinQ 5G won’t be coming to all US carriers

LG V50 ThinQ 5G won’t be coming to all US carriers

Whenever a new flagship smartphone from an internationally famous brand gets announced, carriers in the US usually race to announce their support for it. With the LG V50 ThinQ 5G, however, almost the opposite has happened. It was already expected to land on Sprint first since LG and the operator have been working closely on this handset. The other giants, however, has mostly been silent though now Verizon is proud to say that it, too, will be getting one of the US's first 5G phones.

The carrier exclusive will tap into Sprint's developing 5G network, while also aiming to prove that just because you support next-generation wireless, doesn't mean you have to be heavy and unwieldy.

LG G8 ThinQ 3D ToF to be used for gesture control

LG G8 ThinQ 3D ToF to be used for gesture control

Just a few days left before its official debut, LG is slowly dropping another breadcrumb leading to the G8 ThinQ. Although it had already revealed it would be using a 3D time of flight or ToF sensor for the upcoming flagship, it is now giving a bit more detail on what the sensor would be capable of. In addition to the expected 3D face recognition and AR experiences, that 3D sensor will also be used for the touuch-less gesture control LG teased a while back.

LG Q60, K50, K40 consumer-friendly phones lead the MWC 2019 march

Just as it had promised, LG is bringing the full force of its smartphone army to MWC 2019 next week. For the first time, it will be presenting new models across all its tiers, from the premium G and V lines to the consumer-friendly Q and K models. To get everything else out of the way, LG has revealed three new smartphones, the LG Q60, the LG K50, and the LG K40, for those who want the premium look without breaking the bank.
