Google Assistant is now on LG’s smart appliances

Earlier this year, we heard that LG had plans to bring Google Assistant to its range of smart appliances. It appears that today is the day for that functionality to go live. LG revealed this morning that its roster of 87 WiFi-connected smart appliances can now talk to Google Assistant through Android, iOS, and Google Home.

LG’s flexible OLED lamps aim to make lightbulbs obsolete

LG’s flexible OLED lamps aim to make lightbulbs obsolete

Next year LG will begin selling flexible OLED lamps to the general public. These are, to put it simply, panels of light as flexible as a piece of paper. While LG's been working on and with these types of lamps and lighting for several years, sources suggest that consumer-aimed flexible OLED lamps may be launched for consumers next year. This is the dawn of the curved light - and almost certainly the precursor to the fully flexible full room smart lighting system as an everyday occurrence.

LG V30 to also get Second Year Promise warranty

LG V30 to also get Second Year Promise warranty

The LG V30 hasn't yet actually landed in US shores but it is already sweetening the pot, so to speak. In addition to possibly having one of the most accessible prices among this year's top of the line smartphone, AT&T may have accidentally leaked another offer that could make LG's 2017 champ even more desirable. Like the LG G6 before it, LG might offer the V30 with a two-year warranty instead of just one under its "Second Year Promise" program.

LG Root Checker Tool causing rooted phones to lag terribly

LG Root Checker Tool causing rooted phones to lag terribly

As far as openness goes, LG seems to sit somewhere in between Sony, who mostly embraces unlocking its phones, and Samsung, notorious for keeping its devices locked down. It seemed that, for a time, LG has been appealing to Android power users and modders but apparently that may come at a cost. A few XDA members have noticed how their rooted LG phones were significantly slower than before they rooted. Doing some detective work revealed a certain Root Checker Tool to blame, and it is one that even rooted users can’t easily resolve.

LG V30 early teardown puts the focus on the cameras

LG V30 early teardown puts the focus on the cameras

JerryRigEverything’s Zack Nelson is perhaps best known for his scratch, burn, and bend tests, but he also does teardowns and, depending on how those turn out, puts them back together again. It seems that his antics have caught the attention of LG, who has invited the YouTuber to put its latest LG V30 to the test. Not for a stress test, however, but for a teardown and back. But unlike most teardowns, this one was designed to put a heavy emphasis on how great the V30’s cameras are.

LG V30 launches in Korea, rest of the world to follow soon

LG V30 launches in Korea, rest of the world to follow soon

Samsung and Apple have had their time in the spotlight, and, soon, it will be LG’s turn. The manufacturer has just proudly announced that the LG V30 will be starting to ship in Korea this week. As great as that sounds for that market, it does also mean that the V30’s global trek will also be starting really soon. And given the praise it garnered at IFA 2017, the V30 could give its rivals, especially Samsung and Apple, a run for their money.

Nexus 4 Android Oreo build released (in the night!)

Nexus 4 Android Oreo build released (in the night!)

Google's announcement on Android Oreo suggested that not every Google-made and Google-sold Android smartphone would be getting the update. However, as often happens with these sorts of things, there's a developer out there with enough tenacity to bash this software into shape - or into the right shape for the job. In this case, that means bringing an Android Oreo to the LG-made Nexus 4.

Google Pixel XL 2 made by LG stops by FCC, launch date hint drops

Now that the iPhone X, as well as the iPhone 8 siblings, have been thoroughly revealed, the ball is once again in Google’s court and expectations are riding high. Sadly, this recent sighting at the FCC of the Pixel 2 manufactured by LG barely has anything to tell us other than it exists. Good thing, then, that we have less than a month to wait and see if the Pixel 2 will have the last laugh.

LG V30 Korean price confirmed, but there’s hope for the US

LG V30 Korean price confirmed, but there’s hope for the US

Marketing suicide? Perhaps marketing genius. Just hours after Apple took the veil off the iPhone X, LG releases availability details of the LG V30 in Korea. It is already tons lower than either the iPhone X or the Galaxy Note 8. But perhaps most important for interested US buyers, the Korean price actually brings hope that the LG V30 will be even more affordable when it does launch stateside.

LG V30 price might be higher than expected

LG V30 price might be higher than expected

Depending on who you ask or which source you believe, LG's late 2017 flagship might be a relief or a disappointment as far as pricing goes. Given the trend of flagship smartphones this half of the year, some expected LG to try and match its rivals Samsung and Apple. But, if this latest bit from industry sources is to be believed, the LG V30 might be priced, at least in Korea, starting at 949,300 KRW, roughly $840. That's a lot cheaper than the expected more than 1,000,000 KRW price tag that would match the Galaxy Note 8. But it's also significantly higher than the $750 leak we saw a few weeks ago.
