LG mobile business now rumored to fold rather than sell

Sony, HTC, and LG have all long been expected to close up their smartphone shops sooner or later. For a while, it even seemed that HTC would be the first to go but it miraculously survives to this day. In recent months, however, it is LG that has been the subject of many rumors about its mobile business finally throwing in the towel and the latest word is that LG may decide to just completely close that business down rather than sell it but mostly because it hasn't found a suitable buyer anyway.

LG Android 11 update – which phones will get it and when

There was a time when LG would boast to be one of if not the first in line to put out a new phone with the latest Android version or at least update its existing products as soon as possible. The company seems to be having a little of bit trouble catching up these days, as many of its latest phones remain on a version of Android released two years ago. That's not to say that LG has been sitting on these updates and has finally revealed its timetable for a handful of phones getting Android 11 this year.

LG V60 ThinQ 5G in the US gets Android 11 finally

LG V60 ThinQ 5G in the US gets Android 11 finally

Before LG set about re-imagining and rebranding its smartphones, the mouthful that is the LG V60 ThinQ 5G, with a "UW" appended in some cases, landed in the US before all hell broke loose around the world. To some extent, it is the last of its kind, closing a chapter in LG's history. It sadly wasn't that celebrated, thanks to numerous reasons, but now owners of the last "V" phone have another reason to celebrate as it is the first LG phone in the US to get the much-awaited Android 11 update.

LG webOS TV platform is now available for other TV manufacturers

LG webOS TV platform is now available for other TV manufacturers

Despite the popularity of smart TVs, there is currently no clear winner among the handful of smart TV platforms available. Google's Android TV may have the numbers but it doesn't have a wide lead against Samsung's Tizen-based platform, LG's webOS TV, Amazon's Fire TV, and the handful of other custom platforms on the likes of Roku, for example. LG, however, seems to have bigger ambitions and wants to corner that market by licensing its webOS TV platform to other smart TV makers.

LG Rollable phone fate not yet decided, company says

LG seems to be the unfortunate victim of rumors that claim its impending demise, including some reportedly from company execs. The company, of course, denied those rumors and, to be fair, their official word carries more weight than hearsay. The latest subject of those rumors is the LG Rollable phone that the company teased just last month. It turns out, LG hasn't actually made any final decision about it yet, meaning its fate still remains in limbo for now.

LG rollable phone might be gone for good

LG rollable phone might be gone for good

South Korean sources suggest this week that LG's sent word of a halting of efforts for their future rollable phone. This conceptual effort was meant to be a real deal, at some point - a phone with a display that'd effective unfurl like a scroll. But now, amid the restructuring of the LG smartphone business in general, it would appear that any sort of "rollable" smartphone efforts will need to be done by a different company, one more prepared to drop cash on such a risky endeavor.

2021 LG Gram laptops are now available in the US

PCs, particularly laptops, have experienced a surge last year, mostly due to new work and education arrangement during the COVID-19 pandemic. Although analysts predict the high numbers won't last long, PC makers are nonetheless putting out as many devices as they can while the positive situation lasts. Just last month, LG announced the latest models in its Gram line of lightweight laptops and most of those are now available for purchase in the US, at least if you're not aiming for the 2-in-1 convertible kind.

LG Virtoo will soon stream phone apps to Windows 10 PCs

LG Virtoo will soon stream phone apps to Windows 10 PCs

Samsung's close partnership with Microsoft has many aspects and perks but perhaps the most significant is the bridge between Windows 10 PCs and some Galaxy phones. While Windows' Your Phone does support many Android phones, some of the best features are exclusive to a few high-end models only. LG decided to strike off on its own as well, independent of Microsoft's direct cooperation, but it might not be as barebones as initially presumed.

Upgrades are set to hit the smartphone in 2021 and 2022.
