Verizon's LG V20 finally gets its Oreo update

While many of us are using Android 9 Pie or at least looking forward to an update in the not too distant future, some LG V20 owners have been simply hoping for an Oreo update. Both AT&T and Sprint have already gotten the job done. Today, Verizon customers with LG's last removable battery flagship are getting the much-anticipated OTA.

LG will announce the V40 ThinQ on October 3rd

LG's phone release cycle has been a bit weird in 2018. It re-released the V30 a few times, and the G7 ThinQ popped up in several variants. Now, it's time for the long-rumored V40 ThinQ to make its premiere. LG has sent out invites to an event on October 3rd with the phrase "Take 5." That would seem to confirm a five-camera phone.

LG G7 One and G7 Fit hands-on: Surprisingly pleasing hardware that will live or die based on pricing

When it came time to review the LG G7 earlier this year, I was conflicted. Here was a quite nice, generally well-executed smartphone, but one I just couldn't get really excited about — features like its AI camera and hardware Google Assistant button were forgettable at best, and I had trouble justifying the flagship-level pricing. But at its heart, there was a lot of potential there, which is exactly why I was excited last month to learn about the debut of the LG G7 One and G7 Fit, two phones very much cut from the same cloth as their namesake.

LG announces Android One-toting G7 variant, plus upper mid-range G7 Fit

Thanks to a lack of innovation, multiple models of seemingly the same phone, and some questionable marketing decisions, LG's Android star has lost some of its shine in the last couple of years. The G7 wasn't a bad phone, per se, but it did little to distinguish itself in a crowded notch-heavy field. LG is hoping that two new G series variants will fare better.

LG bringing Google Assistant to its TVs in markets around the world

You've already got the Google Assistant on your phone, and carry it pretty much everywhere as a result, but don't for one second think that means Google and its hardware partners are any less interested in making Assistant's reach positively ubiquitous. It's on speakers, it's on headphones, it's on countertop displays — and if you've got a new LG smart TV, you may be about to get Assistant there, too.

LG V40 ThinQ leak shows off triple cameras and G7-style notch

LG stuck with the V30 longer than we expected, re-releasing the phone twice more after the original version shipped in late 2017. Now, it seems poised to move on with the V40 ThinQ, a device with more cameras than you'll know what to do with. A leaked render of the phone shows off three sensors on the back, and a pair up front housed in a notch.

Sprint and LG say they'll offer the first 5G phone in the first half of 2019

Every carrier now has a robust and mature 4G LTE network, so it's almost time to start rolling out a new wireless standard. 5G service will start popping up at the end of this year, but there won't be phones until 2019. Sprint and LG had partnered to launch what they claim will be the first 5G phone in the US. The unnamed device will reportedly arrive in the first half of 2019.
