LG Velvet 4G launched with a 2018 processor

LG Velvet 4G launched with a 2018 processor

As with any LG smartphone, the LG Velvet launched with mostly positive feedback and so far negligible sales. While a departure from LG's years-old design, its latest mid-range smartphone under a new naming convention may have not impressed buyers with its actually capable processor. The good news is that LG has silently launched a variant running on a Snapdragon 800 series chipset. The bad news, not only does it sacrifice 5G, but the Snapdragon 845 isn't even last year's headlining processor.

LG’s self-cleaning earbuds now available in the US: Should you buy it?

COVID-19 pandemic has made the masses more aware of the importance of sanitization that has also seeped into the products we use. Virtually anything that can be advertised as having better protection from germs is a hit these days. Right from UV smartphone sanitizers and wireless charging stations which double as UV sanitizers to the self-sanitizing door handle and air humidifier - if the pitch is right, a product will sell like hotcakes.

LG V60 ThinQ 5G gets a very disappointing DxOMark score

LG V60 ThinQ 5G gets a very disappointing DxOMark score

LG has never really been known for its mobile photography experience, even though it was one of the first to give the market a wide-angle camera. It has mostly tried to play to its strengths, particularly in the audio department, but it knows it couldn't afford to ignore cameras for long. With the V60 ThinQ 5G, it set a higher goal for itself as far as photography performance goes while stubbornly holding on to its principles. Unfortunately, that may not have paid off, at least as far as DxOMark's review goes.

LG Velvet 5G US availability starts this week

LG Velvet 5G US availability starts this week

OnePlus' announcement this morning may have been relatively low-key but the OnePlus Nord's pricing definitely had the Internet buzzing. Given that scenario, it almost seems counterintuitive to announce a new mid-range smartphone but that didn't seem to have fazed LG one bit. Granted, the LG Velvet has actually been in the market much earlier than the OnePlus Nord but it also has one thing over this newest mid-range Android phone. Well, two if you consider both the stylus-enabled Dual Screen accessory and its US availability tomorrow.

LG UltraGear gaming monitor combines 4K UHD with 1ms GTG speeds

LG UltraGear gaming monitor combines 4K UHD with 1ms GTG speeds

Most computer users will probably be satisfied with a large, hi-res monitor that has a bright panel and displays more or less accurate colors. Gamers, however, are a cut above the rest, even compared to those who work on multimedia content. More than just high resolutions, accurate colors, and fast refresh rates, gamers also seek out monitors with fast response times and low latencies to give them an edge over the competition, be it human or AI. LG is promising all of that in its latest UltraGear monitor that it claims is the world's first 4K IPS 1MS GTG screen built especially for gamers.

LG B Project rollable phone may launch early next year

LG B Project rollable phone may launch early next year

Although some may praise Samsung for innovations like the Galaxy Fold, LG perhaps deserves some commendation for launching more "experimental" smartphones in the market, even if they end up being a flop. From the misnamed curved LG G Flex to the modular LG G5 to its recent batch of the dual-screen accessories for its phones, LG seems to be less averse at putting money where its mouth is when it comes to radical innovation. In fact, despite its current financial situation, it may be launching its craziest phones yet, including a rollable phone in early 2021.

T-Mobile LG Stylo 5 receives an Android 10 update

T-Mobile LG Stylo 5 receives an Android 10 update

From being one that shouts "first!" when a new Android update is released, LG has now become one of the worst-rated manufacturers when it comes to timely Android updates. That's true for its most flagships but is even worse for its mid-range and entry-level models. So when news of Android 10 landing on a mid-2019 Stylo 5, there is definitely much reason to be pleasantly surprised. Especially when you consider it's coming via the long-winded carrier route.

LG TONE Free TWS earbuds clean themselves with UV light

Truly wireless stereo earbuds have become the fad these days, mostly thanks to the popularity of Apple's AirPods. But as any owner of such earbuds can attest to, those small things that you put in your ears every day can accumulate a lot of dirt, including bacteria that you can't see. To give its customers a bit of confidence, LG is launching a new pair of earbuds that can keep themselves clean of those harmful elements, thanks to a now more popular ultraviolet light treatment.

LG GX Gallery OLED TVs look very thin and very expensive

LG GX Gallery OLED TVs look very thin and very expensive

LG today announced its new GX Gallery lineup of OLED TVs, which seems to be a successor to the "wallpaper" TVs it launched a few years back. The name of the game here seems to be minimalism - while the wallpaper TVs required the use of a separate sound bar, the GX Gallery TVs do not, leaving them free of extra hardware when they're mounted on a wall.

iPhone 12 release date 6 weeks late and the $250 up-sell price

The iPhone 12 and iPhone 12 Pro release dates previously leaked are now expected to bump back a full 6 weeks. This isn't necessarily due to COVID-19, but added precautions could be in play. We're now hearing that there's a possibility that Apple's ordered more display panels than they would have otherwise - just to make certain they're able to meet demand for this oncoming season of significant upgrades and new iPhone features.
