LG

LG Corporation is a South Korean conglomerate that is based in Seoul. LG operates a number of subsidiaries including LG Electronics, LG Display, LG Telecom, and LG Chem. The conglomerate specializes in developing electronics, telecom products, and chemicals. LG Corp. was founded in 1947 by Koo In-Hwoi. Koo first established Lak-Hui Chemical Industrial Corp. in 1947. Today, Lak-Hui (pronounced lucky) is known as LG Chem. The company then expanded its business and created Goldstar Co. Ltd, now known as LG Electronics Inc. Both companies merged and formed Lucky-Goldstar, which was eventually renamed “LG” in 1995.

LG To Restructure Mobile Division Following Poor LG G5 Sales

AT&T Brings Wi-Fi Calling To LG G4
LG G4 owners take note: AT&T has announced that Wi-Fi calling is now available for the G4 on its network.

LG G4 Wi-Fi calling on AT&T goes live starting today.

LG Reportedly Developing Smartphone With Magnetic Resonance Charging
Wireless charging tech has typically been viewed as novel. This is because while it does not require users to plug their phones in, it does require that they place it on a wireless charging mat, in which picking it up to receive a call or send a message basically interrupts the charging process, which we guess doesn’t really feel very much like wireless charging.

Professional Rock Climber Scales Building Using LG’s Vacuum Cleaners
One of the important features to consider when choosing a vacuum cleaner would be its suction strength.

During Google I/O, the company announced the next major update to their Android Wear platform in the form of Android Wear 2.0, which from what we can tell is the platform’s biggest update so far, although that’s not really saying much since Android Wear hasn’t been around for that long, at least compared to Android.

LG G Flex 3 Could Be Launched In September At IFA [Rumor]
#IFA2017 – The last time we saw LG launch a new G Flex handset was last year with the LG G Flex 2.

LG Files For X5 Trademark
Filing for a trademark might not necessarily mean that a particular product bearing that name is going to hit the market. Sometimes, it can prove to be a strategic pre-emptive move against your competitors, but it is rather safe to say that most of the time, a trademark filed would have far more use if you have a product with the same name.
