The LG Rollable shows new signs of life

The LG Rollable shows new signs of life

Say what you will about LG's smartphone division — it's certainly inventive. Hot off the release of the swiveling LG Wing, the company has been teasing a new rollable handset with a planned 2021 release. There were some questions last month on whether the device would actually ship this year, and despite a spokesperson denying rumors surrounding the phone's cancellation, there's been no sure sign of when the Rollable might be available for purchase. Now the handheld has just passed certification from the Bluetooth SIG, hinting that the device might be in our grasp before you know it.

LG support site details a very pokey Android 11 update plan

LG support site details a very pokey Android 11 update plan

So far, the only notable LG devices we've seen updated to Android 11 are the V60 and the Velvet (in South Korea, anyway). According to a support page on LG's German site, a few more phones will get the big software bump ... just don't expect them to be especially timely. Why would you, at this point?

AT&T becomes latest carrier to bring Android 11 to the LG V60

AT&T becomes latest carrier to bring Android 11 to the LG V60

LG has never had the best reputation for software updates, and that situation really hasn't changed any with the release of Android 11 last year. It took until 2021 before we saw Android 11 updates hit any of the company's phones, and even that had been limited to South Korea. Now we're finally starting to see some domestic action, as the V60 on Verizon and T-Mobile upgrades to Android 11.

LG's rollable phone may still see the light of day after all

LG's smartphone division has been in trouble for a while, but that hasn't stopped the company from showing off some crazy new concepts like the Wing, and more recently, the LG Rollable. The latter looked like an incredible device, and was definitely something we were itching to get our hands on. Sadly, despite LG confirming plans to launch the innovative device later this year, new rumors suggest it may have been canceled. After this story was published, an LG spokesperson contacted The Verge to deny rumors of the cancelation, and the article has been updated to reflect this.

Pixel 5 and LG Wing are getting a free 5G C-band upgrade

Pixel 5 and LG Wing are getting a free 5G C-band upgrade

The Pixel 5 and LG Wing don't have too much in common — outside maybe the fact that neither will sell very well — but both phones are going to get a 5G-related upgrade. FCC documents indicate that both Google and LG have been granted permission for the phones to access the new 5G Band n77 freed up as part of the C-band auction. With nothing more than a software update, both devices can connect to the new 5G frequency once US carriers start using it.

The LG Rollable will go on sale in 2021

LG isn't making the best-selling smartphones these days, but we have to admit that the South Korean company does have a flair for thinking out of the box, as we've seen with unorthodox models like the LG Wing. While so far we haven't seen any phones with foldable displays like Samsung or Motorola produce, today we're checking out a possible step in that direction with the Rollable concept phone LG just teased at CES 2021.

LG Wing receives system update with new screen-swapping features

The LG Wing is one of the weirder phones released lately, with a swiveling design that yields two usable screens (though one is smaller than the other). LG is still working on new ways to utilize the dual-display layout, and now an update going out to Verizon subscribers includes some of the company's new ideas.

Here's our first look at the upcoming LG Stylo 7 5G

The LG Stylo series has long been a favorite for people who want a stylus on their phone but don't want to sell a kidney to get it. Last year's Stylo 6 was a bit of a letdown, though, offering poor performance and precious few upgrades over its predecessor. Will the follow-up put on a better showing? Now, thanks to OnLeaks, we have our first look at the Stylo 7 5G.
