It looks like the LG G5 will be unveiled before the Galaxy S7

We all know that LG and Samsung will unveil the LG G5 and the Galaxy S7, respectively, during special media events scheduled for the weekend before MWC 2016 kicks off. At least unofficially, because neither company mentioned either handset in their initial teasers.

However, Samsung did confirm the Galaxy S7 edge product name in online developer documentation before removing it from its website, and LG followed through with a more daring revelation. More →

However, some intriguing new rumors about the LG G5 do offer us a little something to get excited about. Via 9to5Google, a report from CNET Korea this week claimed that the LG G5 will have a battery that can be removed simply by taking out the detachable bottom edge of the phone, as you can see in the concept render below.

This might be the most exciting announcement from CES 2016

This might be the most exciting announcement from CES 2016

Last year’s Consumer Electronics Show was the best event I’ve seen in years because it really was a glimpse at the future. We’re currently in a period of transition but soon, everything in our homes will be connected. Everything in our offices will be connected. Our cars will be connected — even our clothes will be connected. CES 2015 gave us our first real look at that connected future and it was exciting.

This year, the show is shaping up to be a continuation of the same story. Much of the shine has worn off, but connected devices that fit into the “Internet of Things” story are taking center stage at CES 2016 as well. Nifty though they may be, the excitement has worn off a bit since IoT was also the focus of last year’s show.

But don’t despair. There will still be some exciting announcements made at CES 2016 — and it looks like one of the most exciting things we’ll see at this year’s show might have already been unveiled. More →

Green Monday has more HDTV deals than you’ll know what to do with, and we’ve gone through them all to find 12 of the best TV bargains available — and some of these prices are even better than they were for Black Friday!

Amazon deal: Save $1,200 on a giant 60-inch 4K LED TV

Look, we’re going to level with you right now: 4K resolution is not yet a necessity for flat-screen TVs. That said, we’re quickly approaching a time when ultra HD content is widely available, and services like Netflix already offer some of their content in 4K resolution. Also, if you’re in the market for a large flat-screen TV, you really should future-proof it by going 4K.

Of course, you don’t have to spend a fortune just to future-proof your television, because Amazon has a huge sale going right now on the LG Electronics 60UF8500 60-inch 4K Ultra HD 3D Smart LED TV (2015 Model). More →
