LG's stunning resurgence in 2017

No one wants to be the runner-up, or the second-place finisher, just because you know that despite all of the efforts put into something, there’s still someone else that has done it better than you. That’s exactly the predicament that South Korean based company, LG, has seen itself year-after-year for as long as they’ve been in the Android smartphone market. Looking back at nearly the last decade alone, they’ve always seemed to be in the shadow of Samsung’s grandiose acclaims – always coming ever so close, but never once finishing ahead of its esteemed rival.

And just like many other choices LG made with the V30, the shift to organics is a direct jab at Samsung, which has been putting AMOLED (or Super AMOLED, as it likes to call them) displays in its flagships for many years now. But this raises the question: on a purely …

LG's Q2 profits lower than expected, struggling mobile division to blame

LG Electronics has announced its operating profit estimates for the second quarter of 2017. Judging by the reported preliminary April-June profit of 664 billion won ($574.49 million), it is estimated that the tech giant will record a year-over-year increase of about 14%.

Apple deciding whether to invest in LG's OLED production?

Just the other day, we told you that Samsung was committing billions of dollars to build factories that would churn out OLED displays for future iPhone models. But Apple being Apple, the tech titan wants to find another source of OLED panels just in case Samsung’s production gets cut off for one reason or another. Having a second source also means that Apple can play each company against each other to obtain better pricing. And let’s face it, Apple likes to buy up as much as it can of certain components, possibly to make it harder for rivals to find a source. Consider how Apple tied up the sapphire …
