LG V40 ThinQ hits FCC, still barely has any leaks

LG V40 ThinQ hits FCC, still barely has any leaks

Leaks are really just that, unofficial and often mistaken information about unreleased products. But their existence, and especially their overabundance, may also hint at interest in that upcoming product. If that’s the case, then LG’s recent smartphones aren’t feeling the love. Even the LG V40 ThinQ, with its rumored triple cameras, haven’t had much in the way of such leaks. That might not matter because that phone might be arriving soon if this FCC sighting is any indication.

LG V40 specs leak confirm five cameras

LG V40 specs leak confirm five cameras

LG’s smartphone presence at IFA was perhaps underwhelming and disappointing. It did already pre-announce the mid-range LG G7 Fit and its first Android One phone, the G7 One. In fact, it didn’t make much noise as far as its mobile business goes, preferring to focus on its other AI-enabled products. But, as they say, good things come to those who wait, or at least those who can wait for another month. And that is if your idea of “good things” comes in the form of a smartphone with more cameras than any other smartphone.

LG UltraGear gaming monitors go 21:9 wide

LG UltraGear gaming monitors go 21:9 wide

Between Gamescom last week and IFA beginning this week, we'd expect to see quite a few monitors on display (no pun intended), and so far, manufacturers haven't disappointed. Samsung has already revealed a handful of curved monitors, and now it's LG's turn. Today, the company announced its new UltraGear series of monitors, along with its flagship model, the 34GK950G.

Top Android One phones this year

Top Android One phones this year

LG just made a rather startling announcement days before IFA. Unlike Samsung, whose first Android Go phone, the Galaxy J2 Core, was repeatedly leaked before it was finally announced, LG’s first Android One phone was almost totally unexpected. With the LG G7 One, another major manufacturer jumps into Google’s revamped program. But what exactly is Android One and what are your best choices in getting one? Puns aside, here are the top picks for the pure Android experience you’ve always wanted but couldn’t get because of the Pixel phones’ price tag.

LG G7 One, G7 Fit will be LG’s IFA 2018 gamble

LG G7 One, G7 Fit will be LG’s IFA 2018 gamble

If you were expecting to see the LG V40 next week, the company has probably dashed that hope. Then again, the LG V35 ThinQ is barely 3 months old, so this at least gives it a bit more breathing space. But rather than come to the IFA showroom empty-handed, LG is resorting to its age-old practice of stretching out a product name as much as it can. Introducing the LG G7 One and G7 Fit, the LG G7 ThinQ’s cheaper siblings.

LG V40 details leak in full 5K video

LG V40 details leak in full 5K video

The LG V40 ThinQ is one step closer to reality with a leak of the rendering kind. This leak comes from the user known as OnLeaks, a notoriously accurate renderer of CAD files. These files come to case-makers and accessory makers in the weeks before the launch of a smartphone, and are ocassionally acquired by people like OnLeaks in the process. What you see is a set of renderings made using those CAD plans.

LG V40 ThinQ renders hint at LG’s largest screen to date

LG V40 ThinQ renders hint at LG’s largest screen to date

As expected, LG isn’t done with the V series this year just yet. The LG V35 ThinQ, as the numbering implies, isn’t yet 2018’s V flagship. The LG V40, presumably also a ThinQ-branded smartphone, might yet debut at IFA in a few days. But if this latest renders of LG’s premium phone is any indication, you might have to throw out some of your expectations on what the V series represents. At least you’ll still have a huge screen.

LG ThinQ TVs get a big Google Assistant expansion

LG ThinQ TVs get a big Google Assistant expansion

Earlier this year, LG announced a rather big team up with Google that would see Google Assistant come to 2018's lineup of ThinQ TVs. LG first announced this partnership at CES in January, then by the time Google IO rolled around, the company was ready to announce and release the TVs that would host Google's AI companion. At the time, those TVs were only confirmed for the US, but today LG announced that its support for Google Assistant will soon spread to a few other regions around the world.

LG CLOi “wearable” robot is actually half an exosuit

LG CLOi “wearable” robot is actually half an exosuit

Years ago, the word “robot” would evoke images of perhaps clunky metallic automatons, mostly in humanoid shape. These days, “bots” can mean anything from that to chatbots to, well, wearable robots. LG is definitely stretching the definition of a robot with the LG CLOi SuitBot a machine that looks more like the lower half of a futuristic exosuit. And since they say form follows function, that’s exactly what it is, with a pinch of AI, of course.

LG Android updates are rolling out – but not the Pie you’re waiting for

LG Android updates are rolling out – but not the Pie you’re waiting for

LG has begun rolling out Android updates to some of its more recent flagship phones, but don't expect a taste of Android 9 Pie to come of it. Instead, despite Google releasing its latest OS earlier this month, phones like the LG V20 are finally getting Android 8.0 Oreo in Canada.

LG TONE Platinum SE brings Google Assistant to headphone line

LG TONE Platinum SE brings Google Assistant to headphone line

It’s been a while since we’ve heard from LG’s self-branded wireless audio lineup, especially its around-the-neck TONE headphones. Given its newfound obsession over AI (ThinQ) and its preference for Google Assistant, you’d think (not ThinQ) it would be a match made in heaven. That has finally happened with at least one new TONE headphones that LG will be showing off at IFA 2018 next week. And while the TONE Platinum SE flaunts Google Assistant, the TONE Ultra SE touts an external speaker instead.

LG XBOOM team adds portable Bluetooth, ThinQ smart speakers

LG XBOOM team adds portable Bluetooth, ThinQ smart speakers

LG is perhaps best known for smartphones, TVs, and a few home appliances. It might not exactly be that popular for speakers. It has been trying to turn that around, with partnerships with Bang & Olufsen for smartphone headphones and Meridian for its bigger audio products. At IFA 2018, it will be making some noise, literally too, with its expanded and slightly rebranded lineup of XBOOM speakers, some of which you might have already seen, or rather heard of, before.
