Back in March, we learned that Google may be working on a third device for 2017, called 'Taimen' (Google traditionally names products after fish). This third model would be bigger than the next Pixel and Pixel XL, codenamed 'Walleye' and 'Muskie' respectively. It's not known for sure that Taimen will be a larger Pixel phone, just that it will be larger in size than Walleye and Muskie.
Earlier today, we reported that Muskie has likely been cancelled, leaving Walleye and Taimen the only phones Google will reveal this year. Now it seems that Taimen may be manufactured by LG. Read More
The US unlocked (US997) model of the LG G6 was made available for purchase less than a month ago (B&H is still calling it a 'New Release!' on its site), but it's already seeing some price cuts. The G6's price has been chopped by $50 to $549.99, and you can get an LG Watch Style included for just $50 extra. Read More
Samsung launched a payment platform a few years back, and we should have known then it was only a matter of time before LG did the same. Indeed, LG announced several months ago that it was getting its own phone-based payment system. The predictably named LG Pay has launched, but only in South Korea for now. Read More
The LineageOS project has continued to add support for more and more devices, while also adding a few improvements to the ROM itself. It's been a little while since our last status update, so it's time we took another look at how Lineage is doing. Read More
If you've been eying the quasi new LG G6 and you're stuck indoors today and passing your time by browsing, you might have stumbled onto two super nice deals for the phone.
First up, Sprint is offering 50% off the LG G6 by lowering the monthly installments from $29.5 to $14.75 over 24 months. That brings the price down to $360 total. The offer applies to existing "well-qualified" customers and new activations on Unlimited Freedom. It doesn't look like this is one of those deals where you pay the whole sum then get reimbursed credit for the rest, so the discount should apply from the get-go. Read More
Ever since the original V10 was released in 2015, LG's V series of phones has been the company's most expensive lineup - even pricier than the flagship G series. The V10 included a top ticker display, and the V20 further refined that feature. Evan Blass, known as @evleaks on Twitter, has released some of LG's early renders for the V30. Read More
Chimicles & Tikellis LLP, the law firm which was previously involved in a suit against LG for the Nexus 5X bootlooping problem, has filed a notice for voluntary dismissal of their case as of May 4th. Note that this is a different suit than the one by Girard Gibbs LLP that we reported on back in April, which (to our knowledge) is still ongoing. Read More
You've probably seen people wearing LG Tones while out and about, but the fairly new Tone Studios bring an interesting twist. They still rest on your neck, they're still powered by Bluetooth, and the earphones still come out with wires, but they also have built-in speakers. And now, you can get them for just $156.93 at Amazon. Read More
Last year, LG unveiled the LG K8 budget phone, alongside the less-powerful K5. As you might be able to tell from the name, the LG K8 V is the Verizon variant, and now Big Red is pushing an Android 7.0 Nougat update to it. Read More
LG's 2016 flagship, the G5, is still a solid phone, even if it never quite reached the same heights as other headline devices of the time. While you may not be willing to pay through the nose for it, $299 is an attractive price given its specs, and that's made even better when B&H are willing to throw in an LG 360 VR headset for nothing.
