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.

LG WebOS 3.5 wants to make watching TV more magical

LG WebOS 3.5 wants to make watching TV more magical

Once upon a time, TVs were crudely simple appliances. Turn it on, switch to your channel of choice, sit back, and enjoy. Modern TV sets, however, have mutated to adapt to the more complex demands of today’s lifestyles. Especially smart TVs that add features to both make viewing more sophisticated as well as complicated. LG’s upcoming WebOS 3.5 release for its smart TVs aim to remove some of that complexity. Instead, it will replace it features to make the TV experience feel seemingly magical.

LG G Pad III 10.1 FHD LTE takes a cue from a Lenovo Yoga

LG G Pad III 10.1 FHD LTE takes a cue from a Lenovo Yoga

There’s a scarcity of notable Android tablets this year, save for the curious but eccentric Lenovo Yoga Book. LG seems to not want to end the year without a new slate, so it’s coming out with perhaps the last member of its G Pad III tablet series. In doing so, it has taken a page out of Lenovo’s Yoga design book, but not in the same vein as the Yoga Book. Instead, the new LG G Pad III 10.1 Full HD LTE comes with a kickstand of its own, but not exactly as multi-talented as a Lenovo Yoga tablet either.

LG V5 leak hints at an odd V-series mid-range phone

LG V5 leak hints at an odd V-series mid-range phone

Both the LG V20 and its predecessor, the V10, were known for quite a few things. They were premium handsets that focused on camera prowess and flaunted a small second screen strip. In typical LG fashion, however, it seems that the company wants to capitalize on its newly successful V brand. Unsurprisingly, there are rumors of a certain LG V5 that might be unveiled soon. Unlike what it does with the “G” series, however, it’s harder to discern where this V model will fall in the grand scheme of things.

LG G6 rumors: waterproof, wireless charging, non-modular

LG G6 rumors: waterproof, wireless charging, non-modular

If rumors and leaks were truly prophetic, then we practically have a near complete image of the LG G6’s key features. Those rumors have been pretty consistent in what LG’s next flagship will have. Or, more importantly, what it won’t have. According to the latest sources, the G6 will indeed ditch the modular feature that should have been, but wasn’t, the selling point of the G5 before it. In its stead, the G6 will feature allegedly more expensive waterproofing and wireless charging.

Android Nougat update: Xperia incoming, is your phone next?

Good news for those of you with an Xperia XZ or Xperia X Performance: your wait for Android 7.0 Nougat is about to come to an end. Sony announced this morning that the upgrades to Nougat are beginning to roll out, so if you don't see the OTA update yet, it's only a matter of time before it appears.

LG G6 could have iris scanner, mobile payment features

Features for LG’s next flagship smartphone are piling up and they’re all talking about the latest and, maybe, greatest in mobile tech. It isn’t surprising considering the big opportunity for the LG G6 to snatch the crown from rival Samsung. In this latest round, the smartphone is believed to play host to iris scanning technology as well as LG’s own mobile payment system, both of which have already been prefigured in the past. Despite coming changes, LG might still be sticking to removable batteries, which should continue to delight fans.

200,000 LG V20 units sold in the US in just 10 days

Perhaps LG’s return to straightforward functionality is actually paying off. It might be too early to tell, but the company is already boasting of very positive LG V20 numbers within just 10 days of kicking off sales of the smartphone in the US. It claims that around 200,000 units have been sold within that time frame, averaging at 20,000 units per day.

Often we see the FCC leak details on coming devices, but this time out it appears that the entire 2017 LG OLED TV line has been leaked by the WiFi Alliance. Presumably the TVs were being tested to ensure compliance with WiFi specifications.
