LG is reportedly planning to release its first OLED smartphone in Q3 this year

LG has been one of the manufacturers who has stuck with LCD panels on its smartphones. While they look great, they still can't hold a candle to what Samsung puts in its Galaxy S and Note phones. Likely hoping to change that, the smaller Korean OEM (in terms of smartphone market share) is planning to ship its first smartphone with an OLED display in Q3 this year.

[Deal Alert] T-Mobile and LG running 'buy one, get one' promo for LG G6

T-Mobile is making a big deal out of its new buy one, get one (BOGO) promo on the Galaxy S8, but you can get a similar deal on LG's latest flagship.

You can even use it to take advantage of LG's current promo and pick up a Google Home. $500 for a phone, tablet, and Google Home is a pretty sweet deal if the $800 GS8 and its curvy screen doesn't appeal to you.

We're impatiently waiting for Android Wear 2.0 to roll to some of the most popular watches released: the second generation Moto 360 and the Huawei Watch. There are also other watches that still haven't received the update and weeks are passing by quickly without a hint of when exactly we should expect the new firmware to hit.

He reiterated the watches that have already received the update, but most importantly, he said that the remaining models should receive their updates by end of April or late May.
