Android 8.0 Oreo rolling out to LG G6 on Verizon

As Android P approaches, some users of newer devices still waiting for Oreo are becoming increasingly frustrated. But LG G6 owners on Verizon Wireless are getting some relief: Android 8.0 is rolling out to the device now.

LG announces Q7, Q7+, and Q7α, with mid-range specs and 5.5-inch displays

LG's Q series phones are essentially more affordable, less powerful cousins to the flagship G series. The LG G7 ThinQ launched earlier this month and it seems like a passable high-end Android phone if a little unremarkable. LG's cheaper Q7 phones have now arrived, and they're pretty much as you'd expect in both the looks and specs department for mid-range devices. According to LG, they offer the same "premium features typically found in more expensive flagship smartphones." I'll let you be the judge of that.

LG is adding 'ThinQ' branding to the year-old G6 because why the hell not

LG's mobile business has been doing some questionable things lately. It all began to go downhill when it released a V30 with slightly better specs as the "V30S ThinQ" for a whopping $929.99 (which it has since lowered by $200). It then updated the existing V30 with "ThinQ" branding as well. The company now seems to be doing the same thing with the G6 for some reason, despite the phone being over a year old.

[Update x2: OTA halted] Android 8.0 Oreo now available for T-Mobile LG V30

It has taken a while for LG to update its 2017 ultra-flagship to the latest (major) release of Android. The Android Oreo OTA rolled out in South Korea at the end of last year, with a later update adding features from the V30 ThinQ. The Sprint V30 received Oreo in March, followed by AT&T a few days later and Verizon in April.

Google Assistant smart displays from JBL, Lenovo, and LG coming in July

In response to Amazon's Echo Show, Google announced that it was building Assistant 'smart displays' with partners. Put simply, they are Google Homes with a touch screen for watching videos, calling friends, looking up recipes, and performing other basic functionality. The smart displays were planned to go on sale this summer, but now we have more information and a more precise date.

New LG Wear OS watch shows up at FCC

Documentation concerning a new Wear OS watch manufactured by LG has appeared on the Federal Communication Commission's website. The listing doesn't reveal a whole lot, but the watch is described as a "portable wrist device" with a model number of LM-W315. It's possible the filing is for LG's rumored "hybrid" watch that's said to feature both physical hands and an LCD display.

LG says it came up with a notched phone before Apple

The Essential Phone was technically the first smartphone on the market with a notch at the top, but rumors of the iPhone X's design had already been circulating by that point. Now there are quite a few notched Android phones to choose from, including the Huawei P20, ASUS ZenFone 5, Oppo R15, and others. The newly-announced LG G7 also has a notch, but LG says it thought of the idea first.

AT&T will skip the LG G7 ThinQ in favor of an exclusive LG phone this summer

The G7 ThinQ leaked in great detail before the announcement, but LG just got around to unveiling the device yesterday. As is tradition, we started to hear from carriers about launch plans in short order, but one was missing: AT&T. Now we know why. Apparently, AT&T doesn't intend to sell the G7 at all. Instead, it'll launch a different LG phone later.

Using the LG G7's 'intelligent' camera sure is a lot of work

Smartphone manufacturers know that shoppers have a ton of options, so making your own offering stand out from the crowd is critical. But all too often we end up with a phone that feels like it was designed by its marketing department, with a smattering of buzz-hungry keywords that do little to impact the day-to-day user experience. Case in point: With the new G7, LG returns to the “AI” camera experience we first got to know on the V30S. And while it can occasionally be impressive, it also feels like a truly “intelligent” camera should be held to a higher standard than what we get here.
