LG V10 gets Android Nougat in Korea, global rollout coming

LG V10 gets Android Nougat in Korea, global rollout coming

LG has recently been rather proud of how quick it is to bring the latest Android updates to its phones. But, truth be told, just like any other OEM, that's really only true for for its latest model or two. Case in point is the late 2015 LG V10, still well within the customary 2-year support period. It is only now that LG's first "second screen" phone is getting its Nougat update, and even then only up to Android 7.0.

LG V30 could use this patent for a bezel-less second screen

LG V30 could use this patent for a bezel-less second screen

The bezel-less wars are on. Even Apple might be joining the fray, though perhaps delayed. Xiaomi fired the opening salvo, and LG quickly followed suit. It was, however, perhaps shoved to a corner by the Samsung Galaxy S8. If, however, LG manages to use this recently unearthed patent, it could get back in the running. The patent shows a smartphone that seems like a mix of the G6 and the V30, combining a nearly all-screen front and a second screen.

LG Stylo 3 PLUS arrives on T-Mobile

LG Stylo 3 PLUS arrives on T-Mobile

Nope, still not a Galaxy Note killer. Earlier this year, LG revealed the Stylo 3 pictured above that, like other Stylos, or Styluses, before it, offered a thin but still capacitive stylus inside a mid-range phablet. Four months later, LG is raising the bar just a little bit higher. A very, very little bit. The LG Stylo 3 PLUS, which is now available on T-Mobile, retains much of the same specs as the earlier model, but now with a Full HD display instead of just HD.

LG Watch Sport for Verizon has been cancelled, buyers get credit

The LG Watch Sport smartwatch designed for Verizon Wireless has been cancelled, leaving those who preordered with questions and disappointment. Verizon has confirmed the cancellation and has removed all of the product pages from its website, though LG itself doesn't appear to have issued any statements on the matter; the maker likewise removed the Verizon variant from its own website. Customers who preordered aren't being left entirely empty-handed, however.

LG X power2 begins to roll out with its giant battery

LG X power2 begins to roll out with its giant battery

LG has just launched a new smartphone and, no, it doesn't have "G6" in its name. Announced at MWC 2017, the LG X power2 draws its heritage instead from last year's X-phones. Just like the X-Men that LG tries to tie up with, each LG X exhibits a single distinct feature inspired by a flagship feature. The LG X power takes its name not from processing power but from battery power. And like its predecessor, the X power2 boasts of an extra generous battery pack inside its otherwise "normal-sized" body.

43-inch LG 4K monitor crams four 1080p displays in one

43-inch LG 4K monitor crams four 1080p displays in one

When you have a huge monitor, like 42.5 inches huge, you'll probably never run out of space. In fact, you might actually run out of content sooner instead. That might be a lot of wasted screen real estate, especially when you have a 4K resolution. The upcoming LG 43UD79-B solves that problem by allowing users to put up to four displays in a grid, with each display showing content from a different source.

LG G6 mini might be coming soon

LG G6 mini might be coming soon

LG isn't one to shy from reusing a hit brand for devices that almost have little to do with the original. We've seen that in the various models bearing the G3 and G4 names, though, curiously, not the G5, which turned out to be a flop. So the rumors that there would be an LG G6 mini isn't exactly shocking. What's pleasantly surprising, if the tip is indeed accurate, is that the miniature flagship will at least bear the G6's defining feature: its 18:9 screen.

You can also make a transparent LG G6 if you’re brave enough

You can also make a transparent LG G6 if you’re brave enough

Is clear going to be the new black? While it's probably never going to be offered by OEMs officially, the idea has appealed so much to JerryRigEverything that he's doing it again. After divesting the Galaxy S8 of its colors, he is now giving its closest rival, the LG G6, the exact same treatment. Of course, if you do attempt this at home, be prepared to end up with a non-functioning phone. If you, or the LG G6 rather, manages to survive unscathed, then you're rewarded with a nifty-looking piece of tech.

LG bootloop lawsuit now includes G5, V20, Nexus 5X

LG bootloop lawsuit now includes G5, V20, Nexus 5X

No smartphone is perfect, but some fail so spectacularly that they get not only some media coverage but even a class action lawsuit. And, no, for the first time, we're not talking about the Samsung Galaxy Note 7. In the federal district Southern California, LG was slapped with a class action lawsuit by disgruntled owners of LG G4 and LG V10 smartphone who were fed up with the company's shoddy craftsmanship and even shoddier customer support. Now that list of devices has grown to include the Nexus 5X, the LG G5, and the LG V20.
