Some LG V20 Buyers Are Reporting Fragile Camera Glass

2017’s LG G6 Could Abandon The ‘Friends’ Modules
LG was pretty ambitious with the LG G5 earlier this year by launching it with the Friends modules. However it seems that the concept never really quite took off because sales of the LG G5 wasn’t exactly what you would call stellar.

LG Debuts Japan-Exclusive LG V34 With IP67 Certification
Last year LG debuted the LG V10, and this year the company came back with the LG V20, meaning that in 2017, we can probably expect the LG V30, right?

It looks like LG might have a new phone in the works called the LG LV5.

LG Unveils New Wireless Charging Pad
If there is one reason why wireless charging hasn’t really taken off the way we thought, it is because for the most part, wireless charging is still slower compared to using a cable.
