LG Q6 brings bezel-less FullVision design to new mid-range

LG Q6 brings bezel-less FullVision design to new mid-range

Every year, LG boasts about how it’s bringing premium features to budget-friendly phones. That started with the K and then the X series in 2016 and now LG is doing it again with a new Q series. But rather than starting with “1”, the pioneering models of this new line are the Q6 triplets, the LG Q6, the LG Q6+, and the LG Q6α (alpha). And if that number reminds you of the LG G6, that’s by no means an accident. That’s because, with a nearly bezel-free FullVision display, these three are practically your LG G6 “minis”.

LG G6 performs worse than 2016 predecessors in DxOMark review

LG G6 performs worse than 2016 predecessors in DxOMark review

When LG went back to the drawing board with the LG G6, it eschewed almost all fancy features save for the Full Vision display. It focused on improving the staples of smartphones like reliability, performance, and camera. On that last part, however, it might have faltered just a bit. In taking the LG G6 for a spin, DxOMark eventually gave this LG early 2017 flagship a score of 84, a point or two lower than the LG G5 or even the V20 from last year.

LG Q6 “G6 mini” coming this week, spotted in Geekbench

LG Q6 “G6 mini” coming this week, spotted in Geekbench

LG has just announced the G6+ and G6 32 GB in South Korea, but it has no signs of stopping with the “spinoffs”. Another model that’s coming is the “G6 mini” but it might have a different name. Now believed to be called the LG Q6, this mini flagship will mostly have mid-range specs but will surprisingly retain the flagship’s Full Vision nearly bezel-less design. Albeit with an understandably lower resolution, of course.

You will be able to use LG Pay on next year’s budget LG phones

You will be able to use LG Pay on next year’s budget LG phones

Almost every smartphone giant is getting into the mobile payments market. But despite their popularity in the news, they’ve barely scratched the surface of their full potential. Part of that is because there are so few smartphones that actually support things like Android Pay, Apple Pay, and Samsung Pay. And those few also happen to be some of the more expensive models around. As such, LG might have an edge despite coming late to the party, if it will indeed be able to make LG Pay available on lower end smartphones in the global market and in a timely manner.

As iPhone 8 starts OLED journey, Apple leaving nothing to chance

As iPhone 8 starts OLED journey, Apple leaving nothing to chance

Apple is moving to lock down supplies of one of the most important components for its next-generation iPhone, reportedly pumping cash into LG Display in return for parts exclusivity. The Cupertino firm is, so South Korean sources are reporting, weighing a considerable investment into one of LG Display's production lines, which would be earmarked entirely for Apple's needs. In doing so, Apple could help further shift its reliance away from Samsung.

LG G Pad IV 8.0 FHD weighs as much as a soda can

LG G Pad IV 8.0 FHD weighs as much as a soda can

While the trend in smartphones is to push bezels out of the way, the trend in tablets is to push out weight. Admittedly, save for a very small number, Android tablets are missing out on that trend. The comes along LG with its 4th gen G Pad tablet that boasts of a weight of 290 g. That almost just as much as a can of Coca Cola, or so LG says. It doesn't hurt that this is an 8-inch tablet with a 6.9 mm thickness as well.

LG V30 might lose its only defining feature, but that’s OK

LG V30 might lose its only defining feature, but that’s OK

Like it's rival Samsung, LG has been releasing two premium smartphones per year. In the distant past, the two were mostly distinguished by their size. But ever since the LG V10 in 2015, the two flagships' differentiating factors practically boiled down to removable batteries and, perhaps more importantly, a second screen on top. According to sources, as well as previous leaks, LG will be ditching both of those with the V30. Depending on how attached you were to that second screen, that might not be much of a deal breaker in the end.

Google Project Fi tips new mid-tier device in 2017

Google Project Fi tips new mid-tier device in 2017

This afternoon the folks at Google's Project Fi tipped that they'd be bringing a new device to their service. What they suggested on Twitter is that they'll have a "new Fi-compatible device at a mid-tier price from one of our partners later this year." That could mean that there's a new device - like one we've never seen before - but it could also mean that Google will make use of a device that's already out in the wild, "new" just meaning it's new to the service.

iPhone 10 years later (plus LG, Samsung, Motorola, HTC)

iPhone 10 years later (plus LG, Samsung, Motorola, HTC)

Ten years after the first iPhone and it's time to take a head count - how does a 2007 phone compared to today's biggest and brightest. The actual anniversary is of the market release of the 1st-gen iPhone, which came to stores on June 29th, 2007. Back then, the mobile phone market was a very different place than it is today. So very many buttons! What did LG, Samsung, Motorola, and HTC have then - and what do they have now?

You can finally buy a $20K 77″ LG SIGNATURE 4K OLED TV W

You can finally buy a $20K 77″ LG SIGNATURE 4K OLED TV W

Usually, it only takes a few months for a company to fully launch a new product after publicly announcing it. In LG's case, it took nearly half a year, but the wait may have been very well worth it. At least for those who could afford it. At CES last January, LG unveiled its new generation of "Signature" 4K OLED TVs and one in particular was obviously its star: the 77-inch LG SIGNATURE OLED TV W that is so thin and even slightly flexible that it looks like it's part of your wallpaper.

LG V30 to make a big change for a new feature

LG V30 to make a big change for a new feature

Wireless charging isn't exactly new but very few, like Samsung, make it a must-have for their flagship products. Things might soon change, however, if the iPhone 8 does end up having such a feature. LG is also jumping on board with its upcoming flagship. The LG V30, which may break cover as early as August, is now tipped to switch to a glass back in order to support wireless charging. While that does seem like good news, it could raise some questions as well.
