LG says they have no plans of making a foldable device

Foldable devices are all the rage these days, but not everyone wants to get on that particular hype train. It seems that LG now plays the role of that one kid that hangs out along in the background because they are too cool for whatever fun activity is currently going on; at least that is (minus the exaggeration) what Brian Kwon, head of mobile communications and home entertainment divisions of LG, have said. According to Kwon, the company considered working on its own foldable phone but decided to wait and see how the users respond to the new technology first. Kwon says that LG will ...

The display of LG G8 ThinQ will also be its loudspeaker

LG will show off its newest flagship, G8 ThinQ, on this year’s MWC 2019, but even before that we will get a look at one of the device’s more interesting features. The name of this feature is Crystal Sound – it is a technology that LG already uses in its TVs that allows the device’s display to also play the role of a loudspeaker. Technicalities of how this happens are complicated, having something to do with the glass vibrations, but it does not matter. G8 ThinQ will have two loudspeakers, one build into its lower front panel and the other one being its display, ...

People more in the know-how than I believe this rough estimate to be true, especially since the device’s beta has been available in South Korea since November.

Triple cameras are nothing new; we have heard of the 6x and 9x camera smartphones being made. Well, all of that is nothing compared to what the LG has just patented: a smartphone with sixteen camera lenses. According to the document, this model would have its lenses put in the matrix, under different angles; that would allow it to take pictures from different perspectives. There would also be the ...
