LG has today announced a new colorway for its G4 flagship in South Korea, introducing us to the G4 White Gold Edition. Of course, this is something manufacturers tend to do when a device is getting on a bid in its yearly cycle of flagship
Chinese company Xiaomi is reportedly going to ditch LCD panels in favor of OLED screens next year and the company will select LG as the supplier of those displays. A report in Korea suggests that the two companies are currently in negotiation for Xiaomi to adopt LG?s components for OLED supplies.
We told you on the weekend how the LG Class is arriving in Europe and the LG Zero and that the handset is likely to make its debut in the United States on AT&T. It seems as though our crystal ball was in full working order as the LG Class has now passed through the FCC in the U.S. and is bound for the nation's second largest carrier, AT&T.
The LG Class is a handset we like, but also see it as a tough sell. It was LG's first foray into metal build materials and it is undoubtedly a looker, but its specs and more importantly price left us with doubts. Either way, the smart LG Class is now landing in Europe, where it was be known as the LG Zero.
After announcing the handset a couple of weeks ago, AT&T has today started selling the LG G Vista 2 for the off contract price of $450 in the United States. That is a pretty steep price for this device, but we?ll get to that soon, first we should talk about the finer details of the G Vista 2.
We knew that LG's flagship G4 smartphone would be getting Android 6.0 Marshmallow quickly, the company's collaboration with Google on the Nexus 5X means it has had access to Marshmallow for a while. The G4 is now beginning its Android 6.0 rollout with LG sending out the update in its home nation, South Korea.
While the Huawei made Nexus 6P is facing a back log and shipments are back to mid-December, the LG built Nexus 5X is likely to be more available. That handset has now had its Europe release announced and will be landing on the Old Continent on November 9 and pre-orders are open now if you are interested in this solid mid-ranger.
LG is proving that you simply cannot stand still in the smartphone market as the company's third quarter financials reveal worrying signs for the future. LG propelled itself into the big leagues with the fantastic G3 flagship, and the company looked on the cusp of something massive. However, the G4 was too incremental, safe where the G3 was bold, and the result has been stuttering financials.
The LG V10 phablet flagship is going to launch in the United States soon, with AT&T and T-Mobile saying their pre-orders will open late this week. As well as being a spiffing smartphone (one of the year?s best in fact) LG is sweetening the V10 deal even more by launching the device with some cool freebies.
You can color us surprised by the announcement by LG that its G4 smartphone flagship is going to be getting Android 6.0 Marshmallow next week. That is a super-fast turnaround considering the platform has only been available for a few weeks. Normally all the devices with stock Android (Nexus, Google Play Edition, etc.) get the build first and OEM's usually take a couple of months.
