LG G7 to use LCD to reduce costs despite OLED benefits

LG G7 to use LCD to reduce costs despite OLED benefits

LG, at least it’s mobile division, is in a pinch right now. It has reportedly rebooted its flagship phone development last January in a desperate attempt to reverse its course after continually losing money for years. LG might play it safe with its next premium phone, still believed to be called the LG G7, and that might mean a return to tried and tested formulas. Like a return to using LCD instead of OLED, according to certain market analysts.

LG WK9 ThinQ Smart Display pre-order now available

LG WK9 ThinQ Smart Display pre-order now available

With smart speakers becoming the next major arena, the pressure to innovate and differentiate is even higher. Amazon has been churning out new types of devices ranging from the odd to the nonsensical to the useful. That last part probably comes in the form of the new “smart speaker with touchscreen” category that Google and its partners have also jumped on. The first batch of such “smart displays” might be nearing launch, with the LG WK9 ThinQ leading the pack with a pre-order but no shipping date as of yet.

LG G7 might still come in May

LG G7 might still come in May

The future of LG’s smartphone business has never been more unclear. Just after CES, it was reported to have scrapped what should have been the LG G7 and started almost from scratch. Then came reports of the retirement of the “G” and “V” premium brands. And then a certain G7 Neo pops up at MWC, with an uncanny resemblance to the iPhone X. That mystery might finally be answered in May when LG is now expected to unveil is 2018 flagship in Korea. And it will be called the LG G7 after all.

Galaxy S9 Alternatives: upcoming flagships

The reviews have finally come out and, as you might have expected (or not), the Galaxy S9 has pretty much set the pace of smartphones, especially Android ones, for the rest of the year. But, of course, that doesn’t mean it will be the premium Android phone of 2018. We’ve only just begun and there are lots more coming in the months to come. So before you settle your mind or wallet on the Galaxy S9 or S9+, take a quick peek at what is yet to come in the next month or two.

LG G7 Neo might be the best iPhone X clone you can get

LG G7 Neo might be the best iPhone X clone you can get

The notch is in. Samsung may continue to deny its existence and pull but almost every other manufacturer has thrown in the towel and have drunk the fruit juice. Huawei is doing it, unsurprisingly. ASUS is even proud it has one-upped the fruit company. And now it is becoming more likely that LG will succumb to the notch fever as well. A render based on everything we’ve heard so far about the LG “Judy” or G7 Neo is pointing to what people have both hoped for and dread at the same time: an iPhone X look-alike.

Why Android-toting iPhone X copycats are smart

Why Android-toting iPhone X copycats are smart

Before iPhone X had a display notch, Essential Phone did it. Here's why Android phone manufacturer's didn't copy that notch until Apple's big reveal: Advertising. Apple spends millions on video spots and hype in all forms to sell as many iPhones as possible. When Apple sends an image of a new smartphone design to the eyes and minds of billions of people around the world, when you're a smalltime phone manufacturer there's only one logical thing to do: Copy Apple.

LG 2018 TV lineup boasts OLED, Super UHD LCD, ThinQ AI

LG 2018 TV lineup boasts OLED, Super UHD LCD, ThinQ AI

Hot on the heels of Samsung’s announcement of its 2018 QLED roster, LG is also making its own team to take on the TV market. But while Samsung is fully committed to its QLED display technology, almost to the exclusion of others, LG is embracing both OLED and LCD in all their forms. But more than just touting image quality, LG’s 2018 TV models are embracing the smart home generation with LG’s newly rebranded ThinQ AI platform.

LG G7 leak shows off a familiar looking notch

Sunday's reveal of the Galaxy S9 kicks off a busy spring for smartphone manufacturers, as many of them will be putting new flagships on shelves. LG is one we expect to see debut a new phone sometime soon, but thus far, it's been relatively quiet on what it has planned for the spring. We may be getting an early look at what the company has planned thanks to a new leak that purportedly shows off the LG G7.

MWC 2018 Highlights: the mid-range devices win

MWC 2018 Highlights: the mid-range devices win

MWC 2018 practically ended on its first day or two, with most of the announcements dumped then and there. There were some late surprises but we pretty much got a feel of the event right from the start. It was almost low-key, somber, and serious, with a few spikes here and there with interesting, if not sensational news. That doesn’t mean, however, that MWC this year was pretty dead. In fact, the biggest winners, at least by the numbers, seem to be the underdogs. Here are just some of the highlights of MWC 2018, especially for the smartphone market.

Android notch: iPhone X look-alikes you can buy

Android notch: iPhone X look-alikes you can buy

Apple has always been regarded as a trendsetter, whether or not the trends have made sense or not. No matter how much some critics bash it, Apple’s trends, especially around design, often get copied by others. “Others” here being Android phones. Nowhere is that perhaps truer than the divisive notch on the iPhone X. Many of Apple’s own fans have lambasted it but, if MWC and certain leaks are to be considered, it’s pretty much the next big trend alongside bezel-less screens. So if you’re in the market for a notched Android phone and don’t mind being compared a lot with the iPhone X, here are some of the top choices, from those already in the market to those still coming soon.

BeoVision Eclipse Wood Edition: $16k worth of luxury television

BeoVision Eclipse Wood Edition: $16k worth of luxury television

I could just as easily say the BeoVision Eclipse Wood Edition is a work of art - but that's not nearly so important at the moment. What we've got here is Bang & Olufsen sound and design combined with LG Electronics OLED TV panel tech and software (with webOS and 4K processing.) The 65-inch version of this wild adventure in television hardware is a cool $16k - not something you're going to find at your everyday department store.

LG V30S ThinQ goes all-in on Android AI in V30 refresh

LG V30S ThinQ goes all-in on Android AI in V30 refresh

LG dropped some heavy hints that MWC 2018 wouldn't be a hardware-fest, and the LG V30S ThinQ is the proof of that. Building on, rather than replacing, the LG V30 the company announced last year, the new smartphone puts artificial intelligence (AI) to the fore, particularly when it comes to photography and voice control.
