LG V50 ThinQ 5G, G8 ThinQ confirmed to debut simultaneously

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.

LG G8 ThinQ to have front-facing 3D time-of-flight camera from Infineon

With just a few weeks left before MWC 2019, LG has begun its breadcrumb-style of drumming up hype for its upcoming flagship smartphones. Last time, it focused on its first 5G phone, believed to be called the LG V50 ThinQ, which will launch alongside its usual G series flagship. Now the company has given that phone an unsurprising name, the LG G8 ThinQ, and is showing how its time-of-flight front-facing camera will set it apart from the competition.

Bad LG phone sales figures are good for Android

Bad LG phone sales figures are good for Android

LG's mobile division reported a loss of over $700 million USD in the whole of the year 2018 - but that might not be a bad thing. LG is set up in a way in which they can lose money in one division and still make enough money in another to make up the difference. And that's just what they've done, with record revenue numbers overall - a whopping $54.4 billion for the year 2018. Here's why that's good for you, the smartphone user.

LG V50 ThinQ 5G to launch together with LG G8 ThinQ

LG V50 ThinQ 5G to launch together with LG G8 ThinQ

It seems that LG is really scrambling to make a big splash this year. For the first time ever, it will be launching both G and V series smartphones at the same time. Of course, they won’t be exactly the same and not just because they will look different. As earlier speculated, LG will be using the V line to introduce new technologies to its smartphones. Along with the LG G8 ThinQ, which may turn out to be quite “normal”, LG will also be launching the V50 ThinQ, its first 5G phone.

Latest leaked LG G8 ThinQ renderings examined

The LG G8 ThinQ seems to have leaked in its entirety, front, back, and side to side. This leaves a bit of mystery about what the top and bottom hold for secrets, but this is basically it. This device looks like it'll have a couple of slightly curved glass front sides, up and down volume buttons and an Assistant button on the left, and a power button on the right. This device looks like it'll have a fingerprint reader on the back, too.

LG 5G phone confirmed with big battery, vapor chamber inside

LG has this rather amusing habit of pre-announcing products before actually announcing them. Or at least revealing their features before their due time. Not that we’re complaining. That habit hasn’t changed one bit so it’s not too surprising that LG has formally confirmed it will be showing off a 5G smartphone at MWC 2019 next month. But more than that, it is also revealing the three key features the phone will have.

LG waves goodbye to touch, hello to 5G at MWC 2019

It isn’t dropping any hints about its rumored foldable or modular dual screen phone but LG has practically confirmed two things it will be revealing next month. While it’s almost a no brainer that it will be talking about the 5G buzzword as well, LG’s invitation to its MWC 2019 press event seems to confirm rumors that it will have a smartphone that won’t require you to touch it or even speak to it just to use it.
