LG G8X’s Korean name reveals its ties to V50 ThinQ

LG G8X’s Korean name reveals its ties to V50 ThinQ

LG's teaser for IFA 2019 started with a bang but then seemed to sizzled into a dud. The company hinted very clearly that its September event will involve another dual screen setup. Not a foldable phone but one with a second screen accessory. Rumors have named that phone as the LG G8X but shares more in common with the LG V50. It isn't that surprising then, that LG is now reported to be naming the exact same phone as the LG V50S ThinQ at least in Korea, cementing its image as a step up from the early 2019 flagship.

LG G8X might not be the flagship LG teased for IFA 2019

LG G8X might not be the flagship LG teased for IFA 2019

Because LG launched both a G series and a V series phone earlier this year, one of the biggest questions that came to fans' minds is probably "what's next?" The company just recently teased what's coming at IFA 2019 but, naturally, it didn't yet reveal exactly what it would be or even its name. Now the Interwebs has been treated to both via renders of an LG G8X. But if this were LG's only IFA reveal, it would be another disappointing period for the company.

LG IFA 2019 invite isn’t subtle about the hints

LG IFA 2019 invite isn’t subtle about the hints

It's still early August but someone seems to be pretty excited about September. Perhaps trying to steer attention away from Samsung's Unpacked event on 7th August, LG has published an article on its Korean website that is practically its public announcement of its press event at IFA 2019 which is still a whole month away. And in that "teaser", LG throws not so subtle hints at what to expect from the OEM in the latter part of the year.

LG UltraFine 27″ 5K and 24″ 4K Monitors are also made for iPad Pros

Monitors are often used primarily for desktop and sometimes for laptops.

That's why LG is now putting out new UltraFine Displays that are of course usable on any other computer but are advertised specifically for Macs and iPads.

LG AI TVs first to gain AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support

LG AI TVs first to gain AirPlay 2 and HomeKit support

Apple naturally has its own smart home and wireless communication ecosystems and, unsurprisingly, it's a very exclusive club. Not just any manufacturer can invite themselves in and support Apple's technologies. No wonder, then, that LG is quite proud of the fact that it is the first TV maker to have support not just for AirPlay 2 but even for HomeKit itself, delivering compatibility with Apple devices for owners of its 2019 AI TVs.

LG Pay launches in the US only on the G8 ThinQ

LG Pay launches in the US only on the G8 ThinQ

The hype around mobile payments has died down but the industry has more or less settled around a few key players like Apple Pay and Google Pay. Some OEMs like Samsung have also tried to jump on the bandwagon and LG wasn't about to be left behind. That said, LG Pay has had very little coverage compared to Samsung Pay and hasn't even set foot in the US. A year since it was first announced, LG Pay is finally coming to the US but it will only be available on one phone for now.

LG G6 and LG V30 Android 9 Pie builds leak to provide hope

LG G6 and LG V30 Android 9 Pie builds leak to provide hope

Samsung has long been regarded as one of the worst phone makers when it comes rolling out updates to its phones. It's still no Essential but has gotten better, which means others are now forced to take its place of shame. That spot may now be occupied by LG, ironically a close Google partner, whose 2017 flagships have yet to receive their slice of Pie. Fortunately, based on two leaks, Android 9 may just be around the corner for the LG G6 and LG V30.

LG G8S ThinQ bring Z Camera, Hand ID, and Air Motion to more markets

LG G8S ThinQ bring Z Camera, Hand ID, and Air Motion to more markets

It isn’t unusual for LG to milk everything it can out of a new flagship every year but it seems to have ramped down that practice of late. That doesn’t mean, however, that it has completely stopped. Just three months after it launched the LG G8 ThinQ comes its first “spin-off”’ the LG G8S ThinQ. While LG markets the G8S ThinQ as a more affordable version for the rest of the world, it bears most of the high-end flagship’s most important, and most eccentric, features.

LG W smartphone series shows it isn’t ready to call it quits just yet

LG W smartphone series shows it isn’t ready to call it quits just yet

It’s probably not a good sign when once small-time players from China are getting more attention and especially more sales than former industry giants. That, unfortunately, is the position that LG has found itself in, even after the dual launch of the LG G8 ThinQ and the LG V50 ThinQ. Some have considered the phones dead on arrival in face of high-profile launches from Samsung, Huawei, and even OnePlus. There might be even those that think LG is down for the count. In India, however, it launched a new “W” series of smartphone that begs to differ.
