LG Says It Won't Release A Nexus Phone In 2016, But It Will Re-Release The 2nd Gen Watch Urbane

LG took a break from the Nexus program in 2014, then came roaring back in 2015 to release a sequel to the much-beloved Nexus 5. There won't be a followup to the Nexus 5X this year, at least not from LG. The company has said it needs to focus on its brand in 2016, not the Nexus program. Job one in tending to its brand is apparently to fix that watch problem.

LG Announces The LG G5 And Friends: CAM Plus, Hi-Fi Plus, 360 VR, 360 CAM, And Rolling Bot

Out of this year's Mobile World Congress flagship announcements, the LG G5 has been one of the most leaked and just as equally intriguing. Now the smartphone has been officially unveiled at the company's press conference in Barcelona and it's not coming alone. Instead, the modular approach to the G5 has allowed LG to introduce a slew of extensions and accessories for the phone. There's a lot to go through, so let's get right to it.

Hands On With The LG 360 VR Headset

It seems like everyone wants to grab a slice of the virtual reality action, and LG is not one to get left behind. One of the accessories (or "friends," as LG calls them) that are pairable with the new G5 is the LG 360 VR — LG's own take on a VR headset.

The LG 360 VR is somewhat more akin to a standalone headset like the Oculus Rift than it is to Google Cardboard or the Gear VR, which are little more than glorified goggles for holding your phone in front of your face. Like the Rift, the LG 360 VR has two screens that present a separate image to each eye.

Hands-On And First Impressions With The LG G5 ("And Friends") At MWC 2016 (Video)

The LG G5 is the dark horse to Samsung's Galaxy S7 and S7 edge here at MWC, no doubt. While LG has received increasing critical acclaim and its flagship G series gained many fans in recent years, the mainstream smartphone narrative firmly places LG products in the shadow of those of their domestic rival. Could the G5 finally change the conversation and help LG stand out? If it doesn't, it certainly won't be for a lack of trying - the G5 is easily the most dramatic evolution of LG's smartphones in several years. Whether that evolution will translate to sales, or even a substantially better phone, though, remains unclear.

LG G5's Crazy Removable Battery Breaks Cover Ahead Of Announcement

LG is sticking to its guns when it comes to offering removable batteries in its phones, but the way it's going about that with the G5 is unusual. All the leaks we've seen thus far show a seemingly unibody device, but now we have a better idea how the battery slides in from a post on Weibo. A user there has posted a picture of the battery and what appears to be the cap from the bottom of the phone. This might be part of LG's rumored "Magic Slot" system.

LG Announces Audio Collaboration With Bang & Olufsen For The G5's Audio Experience

LG is still cheekily announcing bits and pieces of its G5 flagship before the phone itself. After hinting at the always-on display and unveiling a fancy touch cover for the phone, it's now ramping up expectations about the audio performance of the G5 by announcing a collaboration with B&O PLAY, a sub-division of Bang & Olufsen, the well respected Danish audio and video company.

LG doesn't reveal much about the fruits of its collaboration, just that it will keep "LG as the undisputed leader in smartphone audio." Another vague blurb from the press release is this:

The two companies have been working closely together on the new LG G5 to ensure the best sound experience to the customers.

CyanogenMod 13 Nightlies Come To T-Mobile LG G4 While LG V10 Gets Its First 12.1 Nightly

We've recently covered some odd releases for CyanogenMod on Android, where the custom ROM was resurrecting some forgotten devices from the dead with updates that their original manufacturers wouldn't dare release for them. This isn't the case with these additions / upgrades to the CM lineup.

First, the T-Mobile LG G4 (h811) started getting its first CM13 nightlies a couple of days ago. Given that Marshmallow is just now heading to the Tmo G4 officially, Cyanogen is keeping up with LG on this one — albeit with a probably less stable release.

Second, the T-Mobile LG V10 (h901) got its first nightly yesterday, but this time it's for CyanogenMod 12.1 which is based on Android 5.1.
