So much for speculative. LG, contrary to what the company's Ken Hong had to say a few weeks back, has revealed that it's indeed chucking the speaker in the upcoming G8 ThinQ. Except 'chucking' is the wrong term. LG's augmenting its internal speakers with something else. Something a little different.
When your opponents are as slick as LG's are, you've really got to pull out the stops and offer something unique if you're going to make consumers take notice. LG's tried hard with the awkwardly named V40 ThinQ, but the results are a mixed bag.
LG’s latest phablet, the V40 ThinQ, will go on sale in South Africa on 7 February with an impressively aggressive price point of R12,500. Vodacom will have the sole mandate for the device for the first quarter of this year. You’ll only be able to get the V40 in one colour, “Moroccan Blue”. Thankfully, it’s rather fetching, though. Plus, most people will be hiding it i...[Read More]
If you haven’t jumped onto the 4K bandwagon, your time might be running short. LG and Sony have taken some time at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) to show off their spiffiest 8K TV sets. But, in contrast to the fact that that many pixels on a smaller screen is kinda pointless, all of these super-high res TVs are also pretty super-sized. As will be, we expect, their prices w...[Read More]
You know coffee pods, right? What about the recently announced cocktail pods? Well, now we have beer pods to add to the list, all thanks to LG and their forthcoming HomeBrew machine. The LG HomeBrew is an at-home beer maker that makes it easy to make your own craft brews without turning your guest bathroom into a miniature brewery.

Recently Stuff took a look at LG’s smart speakers (you can catch that in the upcoming issue of the magazine), a range that carries the company’s XBOOM branding. Now there’s already something slightly newer on the horizon — the LG XBOOM AI ThinQ WK9. This is a smart speaker as well but the LG XBOOM AI ThinQ WK9 is slightly different from plain old audio tech. The WK9 contain...[Read More]
LG’s V40 ThinQ smartphone is a rumour no longer — the South Korean company has officially unveiled its five-camera handset, detailing all of the bits and pieces we can expect inside it — as well as giving us a fair look at what we can expect to see in the LG G8 when it’s announced. Back to the main show, though, the highlight of LG’s V40 ThinQ is obviously the camera ...[Read More]
Looks like we’re steadily approaching a future where every smartphone is essentially covered in camera sensors (like the nine found on the Light smartphone). In a new leak, we see the upcoming LG V40 ThinQ sporting a total of five camera sensors. Five! That’s almost as silly as its name. Mobile industry insider and serial leaker Evan Blass posted images of the next LG flagship on Twitter. Wh...[Read More]
If you were wondering whether the LG V40 was going to be worth waiting for, you’ve now got enough information to make your choice — on paper, anyway. The specs for the V40 have leaked. All of the specs, which go nicely with the renders that were recently created from CAD files that also leaked. What we now know from the LG V40 specs leak is that LG is going to be taking on the Galaxy N...[Read More]
Okay, how many times is LG going to be releasing the LG G7? We’ve already got the G7 ThinQ and now the South Korean company has announced two more entrants in the G7 series: An Android One handset called the G7 One and a cheaper version of their flagship device called the G7 Fit. Both handsets are on show at this year’s IFA conference in Berlin, Germany but LG has spilled all of the be...[Read More]
