The LG G8X's Dual Screen has a pointless, vestigial, no good, very bad notch

LG seems really invested in making Dual Screen cases for its phones, expanding the amount of real estate available to smartphone users while bypassing the engineering requirements of a folding phone. There's one for the V50 and one for the sorta all-new G8X that just debuted at IFA 2019. But there's one detail that about that Dual Screen case for the G8X that seems particularly fishy and quite ugly.

The LG G8X hopes two big screens will sell more phones than one

LG's smartphone division is not in a good place. It hasn't been in a good place for the last five years, frankly, but 2019 has felt especially rough on Korea's number-two electronics giant. For the first time in a long time, most tech publications really don't even bother mentioning LG phones in the same breath as Samsung's. OnePlus, Google, Huawei, and even domestic Chinese manufacturers like Vivo and Oppo now command far more attention for their products and announcements. LG is increasingly an afterthought.

I don't mean to be down on LG. And while it's in nowhere near the dire straits Sony or HTC are, I don't think anyone would disagree that it's high time for the company to make some radical changes to its high-end smartphone strategy.

LG Stylo 5 now available unlocked in the US

It's undeniable that the Galaxy Note 10 and 10+ are the "best" stylus phones you can buy, but they're incredibly expensive. If you want a stylus that lives in your phone and don't feel like spending $1,000 to get it, the LG Stylo 5 might do the trick. This phone is easier to get now that it's available unlocked in the US, priced at $299.99.

LG announces new mid-range K50S and K40S with large bezels, notch, and an Assistant button

The LG G8 ThinQ is a steal at only $500 on Amazon ($350 off)

If you're looking for a decent phone with high-end specs and don't want to break the bank, look no more: LG's latest flagship just dropped to $500 on Amazon, which is a very reasonable price given its internals. Since the handset was selling for $850 when it came out in April, the $350 markdown in such a short time is quite impressive.

LG G8X renders forecast waterdrop notch and in-display fingerprint sensor

The IFA 2019 trade show in Berlin is just around the corner, and we now know a little more about what to expect from LG.

Renders of the LG G8X, as it will reportedly be marketed, are now circulating courtesy of leaker Steve H.McFly, better known as @OnLeaks.

[Update: Now $399] Prime Exclusive LG V35 ThinQ on sale at all-time low of $499 ($151 off)

LG had this bad streak last year in trying to spin the V30 ThinQ in as many different variants as possible. One of them was the V35 ThinQ, originally a $900 AT&T exclusive before it eventually hopped over to Amazon as a Prime Exclusive. If you, a Prime member, happen to desire a V35 for some reason, Amazon's gotten into some tempting as the phone is on a big discount right now.

[Update: Maybe V50s?] LG posts dual-screen teaser video ahead of IFA, probably for the V60

A month ahead of the event, LG has just pushed out a teaser video, telling folks to "save the date" on Friday, September 6th during IFA. In the video, LG shows off what looks like a folding, dual-screen device, though it's probably another dual-screen case for an upcoming phone, similar to the one made for the V50 ThinQ 5G. Given the timing and the dual-screen connection, LG is probably going to show off the V60 (ThinQ?) at IFA.
