A First Look at the Incredible Future of 8K TVs

Do you remember back in the '90s, when high-definition TVs first started to become popular? Seeing that HD for the first time, the sharpness seemed almost impossible compared to existing technology. But this year, several top tech companies showed off 8K screens with 16-times as many pixels as those old 1080p HD TVs. For me, seeing these new super sharp TVs at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) felt like the first time all over again. Read More >>

CES 2018: Checking Out LG’s Prototype TVs Was Like Sending My Eyes to Disney World

The CES show floor might be filled with hundreds of TVs that put your local electronics store to shame, but the real treasures of the show, the TVs packed with technology we’ll have to wait for years to buy, are hidden in back rooms away from greasy fingers. Except ours, of course, as we had a chance to treat our eyes to the concepts LG Display brought to CES 2018. Read More >>

LG Unveils Voice Assistant That Ignores Your Questions, Just Like Real People

It would have been fair to call digital voice assistants the hot new game in town a few years ago. Now, that space consists of incremental advances by titanic companies pressing ever harder to make consumers reliant on AIs you already know: Siri, Cortana, Alexa, and Google’s unnamed, data-mining Assistant.

To Make Its Awesome TVs Better, LG is Looking Deep Inside

I’ve been dreading this moment for the last few years. The moment a company would tell me all about its new TV and spend more time on the processor than the display itself. That moment finally came last month when I sat in on a call for LG’s 2018 line up of televisions. While the company will still produce gorgeous OLEDs with some of the best picture quality available, the real distinguishing feature, as LG would have it, is the processor powering the TV.

I Really Want to See LG’s New 8K OLED TV in Person

CES is less than a week away, which means there are less than seven days before we’re inundated with news of crazy new TVs, laptops, and random crowdfunded gadgets that probably should never make it to market. LG Display (a subsidiary of LG), clearly hoping to get ahead of the rest of the news, took the opportunity yesterday to announce a giant, potentially gorgeous 8K OLED—the first of its kind. I’m pumped, but what I really can’t wait for is to experience it in person and see if it really is as precise, with as rich black levels as the image above suggests. Read More >>

The LG V30 Sold Its Soul For Mainstream Appeal, But Hey, Its Camera and Audio Are Even Better

For the last couple of years, autumn has signalled the release of LG’s V-series phones — the kind of big, funky phones that usually feel less like an attempt to put together a handset that people would actually want to buy, and more like an attempt to see how far LG could push itself. Read More >>

LG, This is a Pretty Stupid Way to Leak Your Next Flagship Phone

Hey you out there. Did you know LG is planning on announcing a new flagship phone later this autumn? No? Well apparently neither did a few users on Joeseph Gordon Levitt’s collaborative video site HitRecord, when they started posting videos showing off the Mordred LG V30. Read More >>

Samsung’s Obsession With Non-Exploding Batteries Is Good For Your Phone

Since the exploding Note 7 cost Samsung billions, and damaged the company's reputation quite substantially, it has become a little obsessed with batteries. It's particularly interested in making batteries that don't explode, although one might question why this wasn't more of a focus previously. Read More >>

Millennials Get Their News From Memes, Says Tech Company That Understands Neither

"Memes have replaced Twitter as the go-to news source for millennials," according to smartphone manufacturer LG, in surely one of the worst press releases ever. Read More >>

The LG G6 Is Too Damn Simple a Smartphone

It’s hard to stand out in the smartphone world, especially if your phone doesn’t do anything unique. LG knows this and has never shied away from trying new ideas. It was one of the first companies to make use of curved screens, and last year, it released an insane smartphone with a “magic slot” that let you plug in accessories, including a camera and a speaker. The phone was a disaster. It was poorly reviewed, and few people bought it. This year, LG is hitting the reset button with the G6, a modern flagship with all the essentials and not much else.

LG is Showing Off its Own Steam VR Headset Later This Week

At last year's MWC, LG revealed it's own mobile-powered virtual reality headset in the hopes that people would go out and buy a G5 to use it with. They didn't, partly because the 360 VR was a pile of rubbish. This year LG is throwing its hat back into the VR ring, but this time it's going all out thanks to a little bit of help from Valve.
