LG V30 gets leaked with clean design and tiny bezels in HITRECORD video submissions

LG's produced some good-looking phones, such as the Nexus 5 and G3, but there haven't been any standouts in recent years. The G5 in particular was downright hideous, and the V20 and G6 are decidedly average. The V30, however, has a chance to change that. And thanks to some HITRECORD submissions, we can tell it looks pretty good.

LG's upcoming V30 will sport an 18:9 6.0" 1440p plastic OLED display with curved edges and minimal bezels

LG has been using LCDs on their smartphones for quite some time now. They're not bad, but one of the main complaints I frequently see posted online about the G6 or V20 is that they're not AMOLED like Samsung's gorgeous panels. However, LG has just revealed that its upcoming V30 phablet will sport an OLED display, the company's first since the G Flex2 from 2015.

LG TONE Studio review: A novel combination of earbuds and speakers, but kind of a useless one

As far as headphones go, LG's TONE Bluetooth headsets look pretty strange. They don't really follow the standard in-ear or over-ear design, instead opting for a battery base that sits around your neck. However, they're still surprisingly popular; I see people wearing these a lot more often than I'd expect. LG's done something right here.

The new LG TONE Studio (HBS-W120) puts a spin on the TONE line by introducing a second method to listen: speakers. That's right - within this base are four speakers that aim to create a "personal sound experience" (LG's words, not mine). In theory, this sounds like an interesting idea - listen with the earbuds in quiet areas, and rock out with the speakers at home or while you're outside.

[Deal Alert] LG Watch Style on sale for $139.99 ($110 off) via eBay

Google and LG teamed up on a pair of smartwatches to show off Android Wear 2.0, one of which had all the things and the other had very few things. That other watch is the LG Watch Style, which still sells for $249 on the Google Store. That's way too much, but it's on sale for a much more reasonable $139.99 on eBay right now.

LG's mobile unit loses $117 million in Q2 2017, blames it on poor LG G6 sales

LG has announced its second-quarter results for the 2017 and things don't look too good for the mobile division, yet again. While both the Home Appliance & Air Solution unit and the Home Entertainment unit have brought in profits ($412.5M and $303.8M, respectively), thanks to strong sales of fridges, washing machines, and OLED TVs, the Mobile Communications division continues to bleed billions of Korean won.

According to LG, the mobile unit had $2.39B in revenue, but the operating margin was again a loss of $117.27M. That's slightly less than last year's Q2 where the unit lost $132M largely due to the G5's mitigated reception.

LG V10 on T-Mobile updated to Android 7.0 Nougat

The LG V10 was a pretty great phone when it was released. Not only did it have a secondary ticker display, but a removable battery and expandable storage too. The phone originally shipped with Android 5.1.1, but that was later updated to 6.0 Marshmallow. Now the T-Mobile LG V10 is getting a bump to 7.0.

LG announces the Q8, a smaller V20 with a Snapdragon 820 and 5.2" QHD display

LG is tackling mid-2017 with a fervor. After pushing out the G6, which improved markedly on its predecessor, the Korean company announced the Q6 series. The plan with that new family of devices is to bring some of the G6's hallmark features to a more affordable price point. Hot on the heels of that, LG has taken the wraps off of the Q8.
