[Update: More carriers, T-Mobile] LG G7 ThinQ is finally getting its Android 9 Pie update

Back in January, LG rolled out the Android 9 Pie update to the G7 in its home country of South Korea, but users elsewhere haven't been so lucky. It's now finally hitting devices in the US — better late than never, I suppose.

The LG Stylo 5 is a passable Galaxy Note alternative if you're short on cash

The LG Stylo series has been a staple offering at prepaid carrier stores for years. The stylus-equipped Stylo 4 received fairly positive reviews when it was released last year, and now LG has followed it up with a sequel.

The Stylo 5 impressed me with its good design and amazing battery life, but it has the same faults as many of LG's other recent phones including a clunky software experience and no guarantee of future Android updates. Still, there's a lot to like for around $200.

[Update: Culprit fired] Xiaomi stole artwork from a 3D artist commissioned by rival LG

There's a different perspective on copying and redistributing other people's work in China — in fact, copyright as we know it was only introduced to the country's legislation in the 80s. Companies still have a different culture around copying others' work, especially since copyright violations are often still considered minor misdemeanors there. However, companies should absolutely still adhere to appropriate laws internationally — which is why we're calling out Xiaomi here. It's been caught ripping off an artist's work to promote products on the landing page of its Spanish website (which has since been updated to remove the image) — the icing on the cake is that the stolen property was commissioned by Xiaomi's competitor LG.

[Update: Now available] Verizon will start selling the LG V50 ThinQ on June 20

The LG V50 ThinQ 5G has endured a stop-and-go release schedule. In the midst of growing pains with South Korea's next-gen cellular grid, the company pushed its original home market launch date of April 19 by nearly a month. Sprint, the U.S. carrier that claimed the early lead on the device, started sales on May 31. We knew that Verizon would also take up the V50 this "summer," but it wasn't until now that we learned it would be this week — on the last day of spring.

LG announced the Watch W7 last year with an exorbitant $450 price tag. Thankfully, that price didn't last long—the watch went on "sale" almost immediately and has never sold for full price. It's even cheaper than usual today, though. You can pick up this smartwatch for $190 at B&H.

The LG G8 ThinQ is down to $650 ($200 off) at B&H through Saturday

Flagships tend to sell for a lot less shortly after they're released. Indeed, we've seen the example of the Galaxy S10's price plummeting in the months following its announcement, and the G8 is no exception. Indeed, LG's device became available in the US just two months ago, but B&H is offering a $200 markdown until tomorrow night.
