LG Wing Review – Swiveling Android is Peak 2020

LG Wing Review – Swiveling Android is Peak 2020

As anybody who wished for a more eventful 2020 now knows, sweating the details is important. How else to describe the LG Wing, a rotating dual-screen curio that - even in a time of foldable smartphones - still manages to be an outlier. We asked LG for more interesting phone designs, but maybe we should’ve been more specific.

LG InstaView refrigerators get voice-controlled doors for 2021

LG InstaView refrigerators get voice-controlled doors for 2021

The list of kitchen appliances you can talk to (and reasonably expect some sort of response) gets longer, with LG's newest - and fanciest - refrigerators adding voice-controlled door opening among other features. The revamped LG InstaView Door-in-Door range will make its debut at the fully-virtual CES 2021 in just a couple of weeks time, aiming to make restocking the fridge a little easier when your arms are full.

LG Gram 2021 lineup welcomes new 16-inch model

LG Gram 2021 lineup welcomes new 16-inch model

Once upon a time, the LG Gram made a name for itself by having a thin and lightweight design that went below a kilogram (not a gram, of course). The laws of physics and the market, however, eventually made that distinction obsolete but LG's laptops still try to avoid breaking your back or arms. Its next generation of LG Gram notebooks does have one configuration that still fits the bill but it won't be the one that will interest buyers the most.

LG autonomous UV robot will help sanitize hotels, classrooms next year

LG is perhaps best known for its TVs, home appliances, and some smartphones but it has also started a business of developing robots to automate some business tasks. Those range from guiding travelers going through airports to carrying luggage in hotels. Next year, LG is eyeing a new niche market in a COVID-19-infested world, using tall cylindrical robots to kill harmful substances in high-touch, high-traffic places, particularly hospitality, retail, and even educational establishments.

LG Rollable phone and LG Rainbow coming in just a few months

LG has had a rather interesting year, even with and including the COVID-19 pandemic. Although it didn't launch as many phones as it usually does and even though it's extremely late to the Android 11 update game, the company still managed to reach two important milestones, launching the first phones of two new product lines. Despite not exactly being heavy hitters in the market, LG seems unfazed and will reportedly be continuing that trend all in the first half of 2021.

LG Android 11 beta finally begins but for one phone only

LG Android 11 beta finally begins but for one phone only

Once upon a time, LG would make a lot of noise about being the first to put out a new phone with a newly-released Android version or the first beta testing for that release. These days, the company that once boasted of a close relationship with Google has now gained notoriety for its terrible software update timetable. Case in point, it has only now started testing, not rolling out, Android 11 and for a single phone model in a single market.

LG out-sourcing some phones after losing money for 5+ years

This week LG announced that they'd be reorganizing a bit of their mobile phone business, at long last. They'll be increasing outsourcing of designs for low end and mid-end smartphones, according to a spokesperson for LG. This would create a model similar to that of several major players in the smartphone market, particularly those speedily growing brands that've expanded beyond China over the past half-decade.

Rollable phones could give foldables a run for their money

Rollable phones could give foldables a run for their money

Although Samsung (or actually Royale) started it last year, it was only really this year that foldable phones truly took off, with the more mature Galaxy Z Flip 2 and the Motorola Razr 5G. But even before the seemingly futuristic smartphone can really take hold of the market, it seems that another unconventional design might be arriving next year.

Depending on how the first generation solves design and engineering problems, rollable phones could actually offer a more economic and more practical alternative to foldable phones.

iPad Pro could switch to OLED screens in late 2021

iPad Pro could switch to OLED screens in late 2021

The tablet market has seen consistently positive figures, mostly in thanks to Apple and the iPad Pro's rapid development pace. The company's prosumer tablet seems to undergo big changes every iteration, even when those changes aren't exactly visible to the naked eye. Case in point will be the iPad Pros coming next year which have already been rumored to be moving to mini-LED displays. That might be a short-lived change, however, as there are now reports that Apple will again switch display technologies before 2021 is over.

Foldable, swivel or rollable smartphone display – Which is better?

Foldable, swivel or rollable smartphone display – Which is better?

Smartphones have evolved a fair bit with regard to screen real estate – the bezels are as thin as they can get, front-facing cameras are no more a hindrance with under-display camera tech, and the display quality has gone through the roof in the last couple of years. Still, there is a lot more to be desired when we see the unique form factor of a foldable device or a rollable phone that’s eye-popping. So, what smartphone will be the most trusted design in terms of its display technology in a couple of years? Let’s find out.
