LG G6 gets a Quad DAC to pull in audio buffs

We're just a few weeks out from the official reveal of the LG G6, but as we wait for MWC 2017 to arrive, LG has been parting with some details. We already heard about the G6 display by way of the invitation to LG's press event, but today, LG announced that the G6 will feature a Quad DAC. LG is making a play for audio buffs here, or really anyone who would appreciate better sound coming from their smartphone.

LG G6 went with Snapdragon 821 to avoid May launch

The LG G6 is expected to debut in just two weeks, but, when it does, it will be missing a key premium feature most would have wanted. It will be running on a semi-recent Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 instead of the newest 835. While earlier theories presented an image of Samsung getting preferential treatment for its close ties with Qualcomm. While there is, indeed, a tinge of that, the situation might be a bit more complex and has a lot to do with production schedules and volumes.

LG Watch Sport, Style leaked manuals leave no stone unturned

In less than 48 hours, Google is expected to finally release Android Wear 2.0 to the world and, at the same time, LG will be unveiling its two new smartwatches.

LG G6, the “Big Screen That Fits”, will be called the LG G6

And to the surprise of no one, it's going to be called the "LG G6".

LG G6 screen to be called “Full Vision”, almost no bezels

In typical LG fashion, the South Korean electronics giant is teasing the public bit by bit about its next flagship smartphone. All while still not naming it the "LG G6". So far it has all but confirmed the smartphone's unorthodox screen ratio as well as improved thermal management. Now it is dropping another hint by calling the phone's screen "Full Vision".

LG’s UltraFine 5K displays for Mac are getting a fix for router glitch

Last year, LG teamed with Apple and introduced its new UltraFine 5K monitor, which was meant to replace the outgoing Thunderbolt displays. It was encouraging to see LG stepping in to fill a gap, but then a few days back a strange problem reared its ugly head: the monitors stopped functioning correctly when they were placed too close to a router.

LG G6 leak confirms very glossy back, dual cameras

The smartphone market may have a new design obsession this year. About two years ago, everyone shifted to all-metal unibody chassis. It seems, however, that the pendulum has swung back to very shiny, high gloss materials. The iPhone 7 may have kicked off that trend and quite a few are following that lead, including LG. That is, if this leaked photo of a final LG G6 is to be believed showing off a very shiny black rear and two camera lenses flanking a flash.

Smartwatches aren’t exactly raking in the dough, especially not Android Wear ones, if the not so subtle disappearance of devices is any indication.

That said, premium smartwatches are going to have a premium price tag. Or at least that’s what this latest tip is implying about the LG Watch Sport variant.
