5 head-scratching questions we have about LG’s PJ9 floating speaker

LG has introduced the world to its PJ9 Bluetooth speaker, and it's looking to give your listening sessions a mysterious twist. The somewhat tiny speaker uses magic (or magnets) to levitate above its larger base, giving it a rather unique aesthetic in a sea of other Bluetooth speakers. It's certainly an attention grabber, to say the least.

LG TONE Studio, Free put an odd spin on the neckband design

LG TONE Studio, Free put an odd spin on the neckband design

As if the neckband design popularized by the likes of LG weren't "unique" enough, the Korean manufacturer is seemingly pushing the envelope in what that neckband can do. At CES 2017 next week, LG will show off the new LG TONE Studio and the LG TONE Free. The former, unlike its kin, has no earbuds at all and is, instead, a speaker you practically wear around your neck. The TONE Free, on the other hand, has earbuds that aren't chained to the neckband at all.

LG G6 renders give both hope and despair

LG G6 renders give both hope and despair

While it didn't exactly become embroiled in a high-profile scandal, LG didn't exactly enjoy massive increase in smartphone revenues this year. The LG V20, while a solid contender, isn't raking in the dollars. Even worse is the LG G5, whose somewhat modular nature didn't exactly tickle even technophiles' fancy. So back so square one it is for LG and the upcoming LG G6, as shown by these set of 3D renders. While it gives modular haters a reprieve, it seems to also take away at least one thing that LG's fans love: removable batteries.

LG G6 renders show a familiar LG G5 face

LG G6 renders show a familiar LG G5 face

LG is rumored to be taking things a bit slow on the innovation front with the LG G6 after the underwhelming failure of the modular G5 to grab sales. That, in turn, would allow LG to be fast in putting out the G6 before anyone else, like Samsung. It seems that in order to expedite the process, LG isn't even changing the overall design of the G6 vis-a-vis the G5. At least based on these early and very unofficial renders.

LG 360-degree floating speaker lands to charge wirelessly

LG 360-degree floating speaker lands to charge wirelessly

Floating Bluetooth speakers are nothing new, but many of them simply serve to amuse and enchant rather than offer an authentic listening experience. LG, however, believes it can offer something different, something that makes its new LG PJ9 360-degree floating speaker worth buying. Leveraging its experience with Bluetooth speakers, the PJ9 promise a more impressive audio output mixed with water resistance, an extra long battery life, and a charging gimmick that will ensure the speaker doesn't suddenly just crash because it ran out of juice.

LG G6 might be launched a month early

LG G6 might be launched a month early

LG might not have gotten the memo. While Samsung's haste to put out the Galaxy Note 7 was largely blamed for laying waste to its empire, LG might actually be trying a similar tactic, but with hopefully better results. According to industry sources, LG plans on selling the LG G6 near the end of February or early March, a good month earlier than usual. The purpose is supposedly to help boost the company's earnings for the earlier part of the year, though it's probably no coincidence that this would happen at a time when rival Samsung is reported to be launching the Galaxy S8 late.

LG V20, Huawei Mate 9 tied in DxOMark ranking

Don't worry, Google. The Pixel remains the top dog in DxOMark's list. The LG V20 and Huawei Mate 9, despite their impressive specs and improved performance, don't even come close. Under DxOMark's usual battery of tests, the two scored the exact same 85, differing only in the details. While both sported dual lens cameras, they each interpreted the feature differently. Sadly, neither was able to achieve the pinnacle of mobile photography that itS peers are trying just as hard to grab.

LG outs new K, Stylus models embracing the mid-range

If you think that LG, like Apple, has become too focused on the high-end, forgetting us mere mortals, this latest announcement aims to prove you wrong.

But while LG tries to explain what makes each one different, it still ends up making them all feel and look the same.

Even better than better, they’re actually compatible with older Mac models. Provided you have an adapter, of course, and are willing to settle for lower resolutions.

Apple’s 5K display of choice starts shipping as USB-C discount extended

Apple has begun sales of LG's 5K Thunderbolt 3 display, at the same time extending its promotional discount on USB Type-C accessories for several months. The LG UltraFine 5K Display was announced alongside the new MacBook Pro with Touch Bar earlier this year as one of the few monitors to support Thunderbolt 3 natively. However, while it appeared - alongside its 4K sibling - on Apple's online store, it was not actually shipping.
