European LG V40 model now supported by LG's bootloader unlock tool

LG's official bootloader unlock tool makes the company seem developer-friendly on the surface, but very few phone variants actually get added to it. For instance, the last supported US-market variant on the rather short list was the LG G6, a phone that was announced nearly two years ago. LG has just added the V40 to the list, but unsurprisingly, only the European-market model is compatible with the tool.

LG's mobile division continues to struggle amid otherwise strong 2018 financial results

It's time for full-year 2018 financial results. Samsung has already posted numbers showing less than stellar profits for its mobile division, and now its the turn of South Korea's other tech giant, LG. The story is pretty much unchanged since Q3 results came out — the company is profitable overall, but its mobile division persists in underachieving.

Get an unlocked LG V30 for just $250 on eBay

Although there have now been three successors to the LG V30 — V30S, V35, and V40 — the phone has only been out for a bit over a year. Thus, it's pretty surprising that an AT&T unlocked version can now be had for $249.99 new, which is a lot more appealing than its $799.99 MSRP.

Google confirms autofocus not working in ARCore for several LG phones

Thanks to its ARCore SDK, Google made developing augmented reality applications more accessible and streamlined. To guarantee a consistent experience across devices, the Californian giant has put a certification process in place, through which it ensures the camera, motion sensors, and CPU perform as expected. Among the list of officially supported handsets are the LG G7, V30, V35, and V40 series, which offer the same motion tracking as other certified products. Nevertheless, Google acknowledged autofocus is not correctly working on these phones for the time being, although that shouldn't alter the end user's experience.

Grab an LG G7 ThinQ for $480 ($270 off) from Amazon or B&H

As we get ready for MWC 2019, let's take a moment to reflect back on the phones of yesteryear and bask in their ever-falling prices. One of the more forgettable ones from 2018 was LG's G7, a capable device on its own merit despite its failure to amaze. Right now, Amazon and B&H are both selling the black model for $479.99, a nice $270 off the MSRP.

LG to announce its first 5G phone on February 24

5G is the hot new trend in mobile technology, and even if 5G doesn't currently provide much of a tangible benefit over LTE, phone companies are still rushing to meet the expected consumer demand. LG already said its first 5G phone would launch on Sprint in the first half of 2019, and now the company has set an official reveal date: February 24th.

LG is teasing a phone with touchless gesture controls for MWC

While the main challenge Android manufacturers are facing this year is to get rid of the infamous notch, many by simply punching holes in their screens, LG seems to be taking a different route altogether. In a short video published yesterday, the company teased a device with hover gestures to be announced on February 24 at Mobile World Congress.

LG G6 with 1-year warranty is going for a mere $170 on eBay

Two years ago, the world was a simpler place for smartphones. We hadn't yet become obsessed with notches and whether they were the "right" shape or not. In fact, we weren't even to the point yet where extra-tall screens pushed phone design to new limits.  But that was just about to change, with the introduction of the LG G6. Hardware has come a long way since, but if you've still got a soft spot for this classic, today's a fantastic day to pick one up, with open-box SIM-unlocked LG G6 handsets going for just $170 on eBay.

LG Watch W7 drops another $50 to $200 at B&H

In hindsight, LG's decision to launch the Watch W7 at $450 was a mistake. Selling expensive wearables is hard, and the mechanical hands gimmick is not exactly a big selling point. Retailers almost immediately dropped the price to $250, and now it's $50 cheaper than that.
