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.

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 V50 ThinQ 5G, G8 ThinQ confirmed to debut simultaneously

Who needs tips and leaks when you have LG to do that for you. That is if you're willing to wait at the last minute for those teasers and confirmations. For the past days, LG has done its part in confirming not just the name of the LG G8 ThinQ but two of its features as well. This time, it has not only confirmed the LG V50 ThinQ 5G moniker but that these two flagship phones will be unveiled together for the first time in the company's history.

LG foldable phone on hold as safer 5G takes focus

LG foldable phone on hold as safer 5G takes focus

LG plans to take a wait-and-see approach to foldable phones, company execs suggest, potentially sacrificing a spot in the first wave of bendable handsets as it waits to see how the market evolves. The company will instead focus on 5G - likely to be a more predictable and widespread hit with consumers - as it bides its time with more unusual form-factors, despite rivals like Samsung embracing the new technology.

LG G8 ThinQ Crystal Sound uses OLED screen as speaker, amplifier

LG G8 ThinQ Crystal Sound uses OLED screen as speaker, amplifier

It's just a week before MWC 2019 starts but although a bit later than usual, LG has dropped yet another not so subtle feature teaser for the G8 ThinQ. Last week, it revealed that the smartphone will have the industry's first 3D time-of-flight front-facing camera. Given the space that component might have taken up, LG may have been forced to skip the earpiece speaker. Instead, it will be using Crystal Sound OLED or CSO which, in a nutshell, turns the screen into a speaker and an amplifier.

LG G8 ThinQ could be a breath of fresh air in a storm of changes

LG G8 ThinQ could be a breath of fresh air in a storm of changes

Some are just counting down the days to the next flood of mobile announcements that will make headlines. In seven days, Samsung will make a bit splash with both the Galaxy S10 and its foldable phone. The others will follow a few days later, each with their own gimmick or shiny new feature. The LG G8 ThinQ that we've been hearing and seeing for the past few days, in contrast, seems to lack most if not all of those bells and whistles. In fact, some might even call it boring. And yet the LG G8 ThinQ might very well be the most sensible premium smartphone of 2019.

LG Q9 One is the LG G7 One for Korea a year later

LG Q9 One is the LG G7 One for Korea a year later

In less than two weeks, LG will be making its one-two punch at MWC 2019 to try and reverse its fortunes. But even before it announced the LG G8 ThinQ and the LG V50 ThinQ 5G, it's doing something a bit odd in Korea. Perhaps to give something the brand's fans can aim for on a limited budget, it's launching the LG Q9 one in its home. The only problem is that it might be a year too late to make a difference.

LG G8 ThinQ price leak raises the stakes

LG G8 ThinQ price leak raises the stakes

LG has recently reported a not so small loss in its mobile business but while that's not going to put the entire company out of business, it still doesn't look good. At MWC 2019 later this month, the Korean OEM will have a chance to redeem itself, at least in the public's eyes, with the debut of the LG G8 ThinQ as well as the LG V50 ThinQ 5G. With the stakes already high, however, LG may have decided to raise it even higher by raising prices to match its rivals.
