Apple Reportedly Pushing LG To Be Its OLED Supplier For 2018
Like many companies, Apple tends to diversify who they work with and who supplies to them.

LG G6 Fails To Turn Things Around For LG
LG has been making good flagship smartphones for the past couple of years but they don’t appear to be capturing customers’ attention, or their wallets, at least not as much as LG would have hoped.

LG Investing In OLED Production Significantly To Win iPhone Orders
LG has long supplied display panels for the iPhone but now that Apple is believed to be shifting to OLED panels with the iPhone 8, LG won’t be able to meet its demand for the panels.

Apple Reportedly Looking To Develop Their Own OLED Technology
One of the popular rumors of this year’s iPhone is that Apple could finally be turning to the use of OLEDs for its iPhone, something that the competition has been doing for a while now, and will finally see Apple move away from LCD.

LG Q8 Is A Smaller, Waterproof Version Of The LG V20
Given that phones these days vary more in features and design rather than specs, sometimes it’s not surprising to see companies “recycle” certain hardware specs for newer devices.

LG & Joseph Gordon-Levitt Team Up For LG V30 Marketing Campaign
While many of us might be familiar with Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s profession as an actor, he also does other work, such as running a production company called HitRecord.

LG G4 Android 7.0 Update Released For Some Models
LG confirmed back in March this year that it was going to release the Android 7.0 Nougat update for the LG G4.
