LG SIGNATURE OLED R Rollable TV is now available for purchase if you can

LG SIGNATURE OLED R Rollable TV is now available for purchase if you can

While Samsung is lording it over its rivals when it comes to foldable phones, LG is taking its flexible displays where Samsung has not yet set foot in, at least not commercially. LG has been putting its own flexible OLED tech in computers and especially as rollable displays, including TVs. It showed off the latter last August and it is now finally ready to sell the LG Rollable SIGNATURE OLED R TV, at least those who can afford it in South Korea.

LG smartphones reportedly staying away from Snapdragon 875

LG smartphones reportedly staying away from Snapdragon 875

LG launched three high-profile phones this year but, if you look closely and get past the marketing language, only one of them can really be considered the company's 2020 premium flagship. While the LG V60 ThinQ 5G carried a Snapdragon 865, both the LG Velvet (except for one variant) and the newer and stranger LG Wing did not. The two suck with the latest 5G-capable Snapdragon 7-series chipset and now it seems that this will also be LG's strategy for early 2021.

Verizon is about to launch preorders for the weird LG Wing smartphone

Verizon is about to launch preorders for the weird LG Wing smartphone

Verizon is boasting that it will be the first wireless carrier in the United States to offer LG's strange new Wing smartphone, a model that features two displays with a pivoting arrangement. If you're nostalgic for old school phones that had hidden, sliding keyboards, it's easy to see the LG Wing's appeal -- you can get all of the benefits of swiping on a small keyboard with the visual real estate of landscape mode.

LG Wing teardown reveals its swiveling secrets

LG Wing teardown reveals its swiveling secrets

LG may have just upstaged Samsung and Microsoft in terms of putting out the most innovative smartphone of the year. Whether or not the LG Wing actually makes practical sense is a different question and doesn't really take away the fact that this odd contraption is not something many would have seen coming ever. But more than just the eccentricity of a swiveling phone, the LG Wing is also a design and engineering mystery waiting to be solved and, thankfully, we have JerryRigEverything for that.

LG K62, K52, K42 promise performance on a budget and an odd design

LG K62, K52, K42 promise performance on a budget and an odd design

Once upon a time, Nokia and then Samsung held the crown for having a confusing number of similarly named phones. The new Nokia under HMD Global is still catching up while Samsung has opted to go on a diet and now LG seems to be trying to claim the throne. After a near-silent launch of an LG Q31 in South Korea, the phone maker is now announcing three new phones for its budget K series, offering a more up-to-date aesthetic and one strange design, all with prices that might sound like a miracle given today's smartphone prices.

LG Wing 5G vs Galaxy Z Fold2 5G: Should you swivel or continue to fold

LG Wing 5G vs Galaxy Z Fold2 5G: Should you swivel or continue to fold

Foldable and dual-screen phones have come a long way but there hasn’t been too much that has changed intrinsically. LG is bent at making heads turn with its new Wing 5G that is arguably the strangest dual-display phone we’ve seen. Samsung is the pioneer - it knows how to make high-end phones that fold and are still worth the money, and that extends to the Galaxy Z Fold2 5G, which is already being pegged as one of the finest smartphones this year. Yet, it’s the LG Wing with a dual-screen that swivels, offering a very different perspective to multitasking than the dual-display of maybe the Microsoft Surface Duo or the Z Fold2 for that matter, which will polarize opinions.

Android 11 download release for my phone: The big list

Android 11 download release for my phone: The big list

When will my phone get the update to Android 11? This is an iteration of a question we get every time Google makes a major product release, especially when it comes to a new numbered version of their mobile OS. This year, the biggest update to Android devices will be delivered to a wide variety of devices - maybe more than any previous major update to Android due to the ease with which Google's made updating devices from Android 10 to 11.

LG Wing video tries to answer durability questions

LG Wing video tries to answer durability questions

2018 brought as the world's first pop-up camera phone while 2019 saw the availability of foldable phons. This year, LG takes the eccentricity crown with the LG Wing and its swiveling "pivot" display. Just like these other unorthodox phones before it, there will undoubtedly be concerns over its long-term survivability, especially with that many moving parts. What better way, then, to assure would-be buyers of this $2,000 than with a carefully crafted marketing vid full of computer-generated clips.

LG teased an extending slide-out display phone in LG Wing reveal

LG teased an extending slide-out display phone in LG Wing reveal

Perhaps it will help boost smartphone sales or perhaps it will simply make LG's brand more memorable in the smartphone market. Either way, it seems that LG is moving to establish itself as the mobile market's daring out-of-the-box thinker, at least as far as its new Project Explorer line of phones are concerned. With the LG Wing and its swiveling display not even hot off the press, the company already threw in hints of its next and probably more eccentric smartphone experiment.

LG WING 5G released with features both strange and refreshing

This morning LG held a special event to reveal the LG WING 5G, a unique device with a swinging display.

LG Wing developer guide shows how to use the second screen

LG Wing developer guide shows how to use the second screen

In about 12 hours, LG will be revealing one of its craziest smartphones yet. Having tried the dual-screen idea and not really that interested in an expensive foldable phone, the company will instead be putting a smaller second screen underneath the main one. The LG Wing's swiveling system will surely raise a few eyebrows, both users' and developers', so it has prepared its new mobile developer portal to explain why app makers might want to take advantage of the unconventional extra real estate.

LG smart TVs are getting an Amazon Music app

LG smart TVs are getting an Amazon Music app

Although its mobile business has definitely seen better days, LG remains one of the big names in the TV and display markets. It is also one of the few in that market that develops and uses its own smart TV platform rather than adopting something like Android TV. While that has the benefit of giving LG more control over the experience, it also means it has less access to some of the apps and services consumers might expect are already there. Case in point, it's only now that Amazon Music is coming to the TV but at least it will be coming even to four-year-old products.
