The Consumer Electronics Show is packed with hundreds of companies each year that look to show off their latest and greatest gear. While some of the faces tend to change, there are always a handful of companies that have a massive presence at the show, and they also host big press conferences to draw extra attention to their new gear. Among them, LG has become a mainstay — and CES 2016 is no different. More →
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 is finally here! Wait, what’s Green Monday? Don’t feel bad if you’ve never heard of this relatively new shopping event, which is basically little more than a smart scheme by retailers to help clear out inventory after the Black Friday and Cyber Week shopping events. But on the flip side of the coin, Green Monday is an opportunity for consumers to save big yet again on a wide range of items, with some prices that are shockingly low.
HDTVs are unquestionably the hottest item out there this shopping season, which is perfectly understandable considering how low prices have fallen. If you didn’t take advantage of the deep discounts available during this year’s Black Friday and Cyber Week sales, don’t despair. 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!

Remember all the recent reports saying that while the iPhone 7 won’t have an OLED display, it’s likely that Apple will come out with an OLED iPhone by 2018? Now, there’s one more hint that Apple’s iPhone is about to go OLED when it comes to screen technology: LG confirmed that it will invest no less than $8.4 billion in a new OLED plant that seems to suggest the Korean giant is preparing for a big boost in demand for OLED displays.

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 →
Remember when buying a new flat-screen TV meant selling off some of your belongings and eating nothing but ramen for a few months? Those days are long gone, and giant HDTVs are very affordable right now. Of course, just because TV’s are cheaper than ever doesn’t mean you should stop looking for deals to save a few extra bucks. And today, the BGR Deals Team has found a killer deal on the LG Electronics 50LF6100 50-inch 1080p Smart LED TV. More →
Projectors certainly aren’t the trendiest market segment in consumer and enterprise tech, but LG’s new MiniBeam model could be just the game-changer that makes projectors fashionable again (remember how cool home projectors were for a few years back in the early 2000s?). Late last week while the web was still buzzing about Apple’s new iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus, LG showed off its new MiniBeam PF1000 projector, which uses an exciting new technology to beam a screen that’s larger and more clear than comparable projectors at surprisingly close distances.

The phone you see in the image above is the Google “Nexus 5X,” which currently happens to be the running name for the 2015 version of Google’s next-generation Nexus 5 handset. The newly leaked image has all the design elements seen in previous leaks, including photos of an early prototype rear shell and protective cases that are already on sale in some shops.
The Nexus 5x is expected to be released in late September, together with a second Google Nexus phone, the slightly bigger Huawei Nexus 6. More →
4K content is becoming more and more common these days. That said, there still aren’t really enough ultra HD movies and TV shows out there to warrant spending thousands of dollars on a 4K HD TV. But guess what: You don’t have to spend thousands to get a high-quality ultra HD TV. More →
LG’s newly unveiled Rolly Keyboard is one of the most impressive new smartphone accessories I’ve seen all year. Although it has the look of a Kickstarter project, the Rolly is a foldable, or rollable, full laptop keyboard that can connect to up to two devices at the same time via Bluetooth to increase your productivity while on the go.

Google plans to release two Nexus handsets this year, according to a number of reports that have probably covered all the main details about the handsets. LG made a new Nexus 5 for Google while Huawei built a new Nexus 6. Both handsets have been featured in numerous image leaks, with reports saying the new Nexus smartphones will both bring new features including fingerprint sensors and a USB Type-C connector.
Now, a new leak shows an extensive specs list for one of the handsets, seemingly confirming some of the past leaks and suggesting that the new Nexus 5 could be even more affordable than we thought. More →

Today, the BGR Deals Team is focusing on TVs again, but from a different angle: big-screen HDTVs that are shockingly affordable.
You should note that these prices are only good until the end of the day on August 29th though, so you had better hurry if you see anything you like. More →
