Sometimes it's hard to defend LG and its "me-too" strategy of always trying to launch the exact same thing Samsung does, but several months or years later. This case is another example, although the details do appear a little encouraging in LG's favor.
The company has officially announced today that it made an agreement with Dynamics Inc., a US-based company that has developed a Wireless Magnetic Communication technology that's similar to Samsung's MST but with a different algorithm, to start using said tech in LG Pay. The service is supposed to launch in South Korea in June, with the first official phone being the G6 since it already has all the necessary hardware. A firmware update may bring LG Pay to other devices later in the year as well. Read More
The LG G6 was officially revealed nearly a month ago, after virtually every aspect of the phone was already leaked. If you're planning on buying it, you can now secure a pre-order from Verizon, AT&T, and Best Buy. Read More
Spigen is one of my personal favorite phone case manufacturers. Its cases are consistently well made, with quality materials, and precision crafting. They also are affordable, which makes this deal lovin' nerd very happy. If you've pre-ordered an LG G6 or are planning on picking one up soon, then Spigen should be on your list of companies to choose from when selecting your case. Especially since they just handed us some exclusive Amazon coupon codes that will drop the price of six different LG G6 cases and a tempered glass screen protector by 60%. Nice cases, at nice prices, what's not to like? Read More
LG will have a precious few weeks to itself before the Galaxy S8 shows up and competes directly with the G6. It's looking to put up the biggest numbers possible in that time with a nice promo. All you have to do is pre-order or buy a G6 before April 30th and you get a free Google Home. Read More
To put it gently, the G5 was a controversial smartphone. Many took issue with LG's modular approach, which came at the expense of ruggedization, battery capacity, and, well, expense. But even disregarding its most-cited flaw, the G5 simply wasn't a smartphone that was appreciably better at just being a smartphone than much of its competition - and that's certainly part of what sank it. I won't belabor the point, but after using the G6 for some time (albeit in preproduction guise), I think LG really has taken criticism of the G5 seriously. (Perhaps a little too seriously in some ways.) Read More
LG announced the G6 in Barcelona at MWC 2017 today, confirming the heavily leaked handset's existence. Specifications are largely as expected, but LG has not announced specific pricing or availability information today. (For the US, you can probably expect that news to come via individual carriers, not LG.) The phone will come in three colors - white, silver, and black.
The G6's 5.7" QHD (2880x1440, 564PPI) LCD display - with HDR10 and Dolby Vision support - is configured in an 18:9 aspect ratio, making the phone actually slightly slimmer than the outgoing G5, while the display itself grows taller. Read More
As the release dates for arguably the two most prominent Android flagships approach, more and more details about them are spilling out as well. For our latest leak, South Korea-based ETNews has revealed that the G6 will be making its consumer debut on March 10th, and the Galaxy S8 a few weeks later on April 21st. Read More
LG is expected to unveil the G6 in a few days at Mobile World Congress, but noted leaker Evan Blass has beaten it to the punch. Blass has posted the full press renders on Twitter, and they look very much like we expected from past leaks. Read More
The G5 didn't work out for LG, so it made some changes with the V20. Now we're mere weeks away from the G6, and it's been a pretty leaky phone. The best images of the unannounced phone we've yet seen are now making the rounds. It's not the prettiest phone, but maybe the pics don't do it justice. Read More
LG is good at getting ahead of the leaks. Why would you look for unofficial information when the company itself keeps feeding us more and more details about its upcoming products? Well, you wouldn't, especially when you have it straight from the horse's mouth that the upcoming G6 will have a 5.7" 1440x2880 display at 18:9 ratio and that it will be water-resistant. And today we have another teaser from LG to feast our eyes on.
Given the 18:9 aspect ratio of the screen (which, let's face it, is a bigger fancier way of saying 2:1) and the multi-window capability of Android 7.0 Nougat, the G6 will be able to run apps side-by-side in perfect squares. Read More
