Verizon LG V60 sale offers the cheapest Snapdragon 865 phone you can get

Verizon LG V60 sale offers the cheapest Snapdragon 865 phone you can get

It costs much to own a smartphone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 inside — some would say too much — and it doesn't look as if prices will tide off soon. But if you're hungry for a spec upgrade and are willing to jump hoops for it, you can get an LG V60 with complimentary Dual Screen case for $550 if you start a new line on Verizon and as low as free if you trade in a phone.

LG will reveal its Velvet flagship on May 7

LG's smartphone business has been in trouble for some time thanks to uninspiring hardware, dated software, and a dismal record on updates. The most recent LG flagships — the G8X ThinQ and V60 ThinQ — launched with dual-screen gimmicks that tried to piggyback on the folding phone fad, but neither have enough going for them to turn the company's fortunes around. Oh, those name surely don't help either. We now know that the G series is to be replaced by something entirely new, and LG hasn't been shy about giving us more details.

OnePlus 8 phones join the club supporting 3D objects and animals in Google Search

There are a lot of fun 3D objects like skeletons, cars, planets, and animals you can view in Google Search, which might be perfect to pass the time while you and your kids are stuck at home. The underlying technology enabling this is called Google Play Services for AR, formerly known as ARCore. It's an engine that powers most games and applications on Android that use augmented reality effects. However, since the framework has to be tuned for each device, Google has to periodically update Play Services to support new phones and tablets.

LG's smartphone division has performed poorly for years, and discarding the usual yearly release cycle didn't help matters much. According to Korean news site Naver, LG is planning something a bit more drastic — ending the 'G' product series that the company has used since the 2012 LG Optimus G.

LG V60 supports active pens and so does its Dual Screen display

LG V60 supports active pens and so does its Dual Screen display

Not all phones with a stylus are created equal: Samsung's Galaxy Note series support active pens; the recently-launched Moto G Stylus does not. A part of that function is due to their price gap, but you wouldn't think that phones that don't come with complimentary styluses would also have digitized displays. Well, the LG V60 comes with not one, but two small surprises in that aspect.
