LG V30+ alpha with AI chops to debut MWC instead of LG G7

2018 will be a confusing year for LG, both for the company itself but most especially for its customers. To address its floundering mobile phone business, the company has decided to adopt a devil may care attitude and throw all caution to the wind. It will release phones only when they think they need to and not when everyone else does. Heck, it won’t even release an LG G7, if that’s still its name, in early 2018. What it might show at MWC next month will simply be an enhanced LG V30+ instead.

LG G7 development reportedly halted, started from scratch

LG G7 development reportedly halted, started from scratch

If this latest rumor circulating media is true, then LG’s next flagship will have more than just rebranding to worry about. According to an anonymous official from within LG’s own ranks, the vice chair and CEO of LG Electronics, Jo Seong-jin, allegedly ordered a complete halt to the development of the current LG G7. He is tasking the mobile communications business to, instead, start all over again. Not only will this mean a delay in launching the company’s early 2018 flagship, it could also raise doubts and concerns about its sustainability.

LG is stepping off the strict yearly smartphone refresh cycle, aiming to extend the lifespan of existing handsets, LG Electronics' chief revealed at CES this week. The policy shift could have a serious impact on the launch of the LG G7. However, it's also being seen as tacit recognition that LG continues to struggle to turn a profit from its phone division.

LG WK9 Google Assistant touch screen speaker completes the trio

Like any CES, there is a wide variety of technologies and products that flooded the Las Vegas Convention Center. But if there’s one thing that binds most of them, it would be AI assistant.

Drumming it up even more, Google and its OEM partners announced touch screen speakers to rival the Amazon Echo Show. Following the JBL Link View and the Lenovo Smart Display, LG is also revealing its new ThinQ WK9 speaker with Google Assistant inside.

LG G7 release details confirmed

With CES 2018 winding down, it’s time to look forward to the next big thing in tech and beyond. Specifically mobile technology. DJ Koh has reportedly confirmed that the Galaxy S9 would be announced at MWC 2018, practically before it starts, leaving the question open for other OEMs’ announcements. Just like last year, it seems that LG will be avoiding the expected Samsung monopoly of media channels but, this time, it will be launching the LG G7 later, not earlier, than Samsung.

LG’s 34-inch 5K UltraWide monitor demands good eyes

LG’s 34-inch 5K UltraWide monitor demands good eyes

It probably comes as no surprise that LG's 34-inch 5K UltraWide monitor is a joy for the eyes; just make sure you have an up-to-date prescription for your glasses. Announced last month, the pixel-dense display again made us question why Apple is leaving other companies to make the accessories we really think it should be responsible for, but having set eyes on the 34-incher at CES 2018 today we can't really complain about whose logo is on there.

LG Display unveils 65-inch rollable 4K OLED TV

LG CLOi line adds three new helping robots

LG CLOi line adds three new helping robots

While much of the tech industry has seemingly moved on to the disembodied voices of personal assistants, some still want to put and see a “face” on those helpful assistants. Even if said faces don’t have hands or feet. Yes, we’re talking about robots and LG has three of them. But forget your ideas of humanoid, much less cute, robots. LG’s new Serving, Porter, and Shopping Cart robots are designed to be efficient in carrying things around, not entertain you.

LG G7 might not be the G7 as LG rebrands flagship line

LG G7 might not be the G7 as LG rebrands flagship line

A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, Shakespeare once wrote. Shakespeare, however, wasn’t a marketing expert. Usually, when companies stick to a successful brand to build identity and milk as much as they can from the brand. Imagine if Microsoft suddenly chose to name Windows into, say, Microsoft OS. And yet that might be what LG is doing with its flagship G series, at least according to an anonymous official. The company will reportedly rebrand its flagship line in the first half of the year, which means there’s a high chance that the LG G7 won’t be called that by the time MWC comes around.
