In answer to “Is there any more innovation left for future devices?”, smartphone brands are patenting technologies that were never-heard-of-before. For instance, Lenovo previously patented a clamshell foldable design with a narrow display, and Xiaomi was granted a patent for a smartphone with a bottom notch. South-Korean multinational technology company, LG has been granted a patent for a smartphone with a foldable transparent display.
The company has been experimenting with the transparent screen design for quite some time now, which was last spotted at CES 2019 (Consumers Electronics Show) when LG showcased a transparent OLED television. Its display had a [...]
With the evolution of all forms of technology, TVs are not far behind. In the modern day, a TV is not only limited to its functions and features but it is also something that can improve the aesthetic value of a living room. Manufacturers like Samsung, LG and Sony have a strong grip over the market in terms of TVs. Although the focus from TVs has now shifted to smartphones and mobile devices, these handheld gadgets cannot replace a large screen TV entirely at least for now. LG was granted a patent for a futuristic television that has an unconventional rollable display.
LG Electronics filed three patents with the Korean Intellectual Property Office (KIPO) in August 2018. The [...]

The V50 ThinQ will be one of the first smartphones to support 5G networks. Reports were rife that LG might use the MWC stage to announce their take on a foldable smartphone but they all turned out to be inaccurate.

With the anticipation of the new LG G8 ThinQ building up, the company has confirmed that the LG G8 ThinQ will sport CSO (Crystal Sound OLED) technology. CSO uses the smartphone’s display as an audio amplifier to produce sound, which means you don’t necessarily have to place your ear near the speaker.

We already know that LG is launching the G8 ThinQ at the Mobile World Congress (MWC). Ahead of the event, fresh renders of the G8 ThinQ have been revealed by leakster Evan Blass, which show the smartphone from all angles.The LG G8 ThinQ Render & Design
The front render of the phone gives it an uncanny resemblance to the LG G7 ThinQ smartphone. The display is equipped with a notch, which, again, resembles the notch of the G7. However, the phone has clearly distinguishable thinner side bezels than it’s predecessor. The G8 ThinQ has a glass back, featuring a horizontal dual-camera setup, unlike the G7 ThinQ’s vertical camera module.

LG themselves have sort of confirmed that the G8 will be making it’s debut soon and a number of leaks later, we know a lot of things about the device already.
But LG has gone out of their way to reveal an interesting information about the G8 ThinQ. In a blog post published today, LG has confirmed that the LG [...]
LG has seen better days. There was a time when the manufacturer was ahead in innovation and was loved by all. But times changed and LG didn’t. Now struggling to keep their mobile division alive, LG has to give all it’s got. And looks like that’s what it will do. New reports have suggested that LG is planning to launch the LG G8 and the LG V50 ThinQ together at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The differentiating factor would be, that the V50 ThinQ will support 5G.
This is unusual for LG, as it generally launched the G series in the first half and the V series in the second. But it seems they have to try everything they have got this time. The [...]
