In case you weren’t already inundated with payment options, LG apparently thinks you could use one more. A new leak suggests that LG is ready to enter the payments world, but unlike its biggest competitors Apple, Google, and Samsung, LG will not be using smartphone technology to power your payments. Instead, the…
As we inch closer and closer to Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, where we’re expecting smartphones aplenty, the rumor engines are currently cranked to eleven. New small iPhone details? MicroSD-equipped Galaxy?! Surfacephone.com?!?
You could say that, historically, televisions are the star of CES. After all, it was at CES in 1998 that the world saw the first ever high-definition TVs. Plasma TVs debuted at CES in 2001, and OLEDs appeared in 2008. This year, however, everything was pretty damn boring. That’s not a bad thing.
Can you see LG’s super-thin 4K OLED television in the photo above? It’s just 2.57 millimeters thick, giving it a virtually invisible profile.
That silly sci-fi dream of invisible screens that magically display graphics is inching towards reality. Thanks to LG, the world can now lust after a television that looks like it’s nothing more than a pane of translucent glass—and a very thin pane of glass at that.
LG’s added a see-through door to its new Signature line of fridges that lights up when tapped so you can check its contents without letting out the cold. But to save you the strain of actually physically opening the door when you see something you want, a simple foot tap now does that for you.
The end of the year is always a quiet week for breaking news, with many companies writing off the last two weeks as kind of hybrid “holiday-vacation.” But rumors on the other hand, well they’re just warming. With the Consumer Electronics Show starting next week in Las Vegas, there’s plenty of hearsay out there.
The flawlessly interconnected smarthome we’ve been promised remains a mess of competing standards and random devices battling for your attention. To help streamline all that noise, LG has revealed an Amazon Echo-looking hub that includes an LCD display for keeping an eye on what your smarthome is up to.
Robovacs make at least one household chore a little easier, but with limited intelligence you can’t just tell them what rooms need cleaning. So LG’s HOM-BOT Turbo+ introduces a new feature which allows users snap a photo of their home and simply tap where the robovac needs to make another pass.
“What’s the best smartphone?” It’s a question I hear at least once or twice a week.
I’m a huge fan of weird phones that try to reimagine the average pocket computer as something different than just a slab of metal and glass. That’s why I’ve come to respect LG’s creative risks, even if they don’t always stick. But with the LG V10, they may have gone a step too far.
I have a confession to make. I love the Nexus 5. Despite its obvious flaws compared to newer and shiner phones (all of which I’ve tried and tested), the Nexus 5 has some intangible quality for me that no other phone has replicated before or since.
LG has hit the ground sprinting when it come to smartwatches. One of the first out the door with the original G Watch, followed by the G Watch R, and the Watch Urbane this spring. Now, they’ve got yet another smartwatch to sell—and this one is an Android Wear first.
How do you make a smartphone different? Over the past decade, smartphones have evolved so that there’s little room for surprise anymore. Maybe a processor jump here, and weird camera set up there. But for the most part, smartphones across the board can feel painfully similar. But then there’s LG’s new V10.
LG’s Watch Urbane is one of the best-looking Android Wear watches you can buy (admittedly, not a high bar). The second edition takes the same formula, and adds a sprinkling of LTE. Oh, and there’s a bonkers new smartphone with two screens.
When it comes to tablets, the current thinking seems to be “go big or go home,” or at the very least, “come with a keyboard.” The Galaxy Tab S2, on the other hand, seems like a careful perfection of the way tablets used to be — not a computer replacement, but a straightforward 8-inch or 9.7-inch tab with no real…
