LG G7 ThinQ Super Bright Display cranks up the pixels, controls

Our smartphones are mostly made up of screens, at least on the front. That's especially true with today's trend of nearly bezel-less displays. So it's only natural that smartphone makers put a great deal of effort into making and promoting their panels. Take for example the upcoming LG G7 ThinQ and its Super Bright Display, promised to be brighter, denser, but also less power-hungry than its predecessor. And, yes, it's an LCD screen.

LG’s OLED production woes are bad news for Apple

LG’s OLED production woes are bad news for Apple

Last year's iPhone X was the first OLED phone Apple ever released, and rumors claim that this year, the company is looking to release two more iPhones with OLED displays. Obviously, this second device means that Apple is going to need a lot more OLED panels, and as such, it's been looking to diversify its screen suppliers. Thus far, Apple has only relied on Samsung for its OLED panels, but for 2018, it's also been trying to bring LG Display on as well.

LG SmartThinQ appliances now speak with Amazon Alexa

LG might not be as daring, or as obnoxious, as rival and compatriot Samsung when it comes to creating new technologies, but it has one admirable trait. It knows how to play nice with others. Instead of creating its own personal assistant like Bixby, it is instead leveraging the capabilities of existing ones like Google Assistant and, now, Amazon Alexa. Now it is bringing that sensibility to its SmartThinQ line of appliances, allowing users to control dozens of Wi-Fi connected LG home products with just their voice.

LG needs more than fast software updates: What users really want

Given its relationship with Google over three Nexus phones as well as its past track record, you'd think LG was one of the better Android OEMs when it came to software updates. That's why it was a bit surprising to see it get a failing grade in Computer World's Oreo upgrade report card, and that was just for the latest Android release. LG has just announced a strategy that will thankfully remedy that situation but it will need more than just timely updates to salvage its smartphone business.

LG G7 ThinQ confirmed and practically announced by LG itself

LG has a partly interesting, partly puzzling strategy when it comes to major announcements. It somewhat sits in between Samsung’s silence and OnePlus’s breadcrumb teasers.

It is doing so yet again, confirming what we’ve practically been hearing all along. The next flagship is going to be called the LG G7 ThinQ and it’s coming three weeks’ time.

LG G7 renders show the notch is no joke

The notch is like a zombie. It’s the story that refuses to die. Perhaps a proof of how serious it is is that there’s barely any notch-related gag this April First. When it was first leaked that LG almost started from scratch only to come out with a G7 that looked almost like an iPhone X, many thought LG has finally lost it. But based on these 3D renders of the smartphone, LG seems to be dead serious about that notch that everyone loves to hate.
