Most diet pills use thermogenics to promote weight loss, where the body temperature is increased to burn excess calories. While this can be effective, it stresses the body and causes it to burn not just fat, but healthy lean muscle as well. Today we’re going to talk about how TruVision weight loss supplements work in a different way.
TruWeight loss supplements are formulated to balance your blood chemistry regardless of your BMI (body mass index). By doing so, they will help you lose weight and improve your health. Since TruVision products reduce cholesterol, they lower your risk of certain related diseases. These supplements also improve liver health and regulate blood sugar. To restore your blood chemistry, it’s essential to detoxify your liver and maintain proper blood sugar levels. truFIX can help you do all of these things and more.
TruVision supplements aren’t diet pills
Unlike other weight loss supplements, TruWeight loss products don’t market themselves as a magic diet pill. Instead, they promote weight loss and improve your overall health, leading to real change over time. Similar to other quality weight loss supplements, TruVision products are formulated to respond to your own needs naturally. This method doesn’t promise immediate results, but will give you significant, long-lasting results over time.
truFIX, a supplement offered by TruVision, isn’t some miracle weight loss pill that works within a few days – and any pill that markets itself that way is likely a scam. To get the maximum benefit from these supplements, you should put some effort into exercising regularly and eating a balanced diet. Coupled with a healthy routine, TruVision weight loss products can really improve your health and help you achieve your weight loss goals.
What is truFIX?
truFIX is a natural and effective supplement that balances blood chemistry. It lowers blood pressure, stimulates fat loss, and decreases unhealthy food cravings. Combined with truCONTROL, another supplement offered by truVISION, your body is detoxified, your immune system is boosted, and your overall health is improved.
While some extreme diets do cause you to lose weight, they do so in a very unhealthy way. Depriving your body of essential nutrients like carbs and fat may work to help you lose weight short-term, but they can lead to negative health effects such as depletion of lean muscle and organ tissue. Unlike these drastic diets, truFIX works together with your body to help you lose weight in a healthy way.
A formula for success
TruWeight loss supplements are best used with regular exercise and a balanced diet for maximum results. These supplements and a healthy diet will supply your body with the nutrients it needs while simultaneously eliminating toxins and excess fat. The TruVision weight loss plan promotes a healthy diet, while their supplements suppress unhealthy cravings, making the transition easier. Since these pills aren’t thermogenic, they’ll help you lose the extra weight without negatively affecting your lean muscle tissue. This leads to a slim and healthy appearance.
Signs that TruWeight loss products are working
After a while, you’ll start to notice more muscle definition. This means that you have lost some visceral fat, uncovering the muscles underneath. This is a sign that your blood chemistry is balanced – when your blood health improves, so does your overall health. Some other signs indicating that TruVision is working are the reduction of fat around your breast and stomach. These supplements are formulated to target visceral fat all over the body, leaving only the subcutaneous fat. This helps you get in shape while ensuring your body stays healthy.
Why it’s important to lose unhealthy visceral fat
Visceral fat around your waistline doesn’t only affect your appearance, but can also lead to various health problems. This fat can be found on anyone, not just overweight people. Visceral fat leads to reduced energy and accelerated aging. If you have excess visceral fat, your organs can be overworked, causing them to be unhealthy. This type of fat can also lead to diseases such as certain types of cancer, diabetes, and heart disease.
By following the TruWeight loss plan, you can easily get rid of visceral fats and balance your blood chemistry. TruVision’s combination of supplements is formulated with safe and natural ingredients that help you lose weight in a healthy way.
People tend to cringe when you tell them you’re on dietary supplements for weight loss. And it’s an understandable cringe.
Really, since most of these supplements tend to have mixed reviews at best. At worst, they have side effects that will make you embrace all your fat and never let go.
And there’s literally no shortage of supplements promising to “blast away your fat”. All you have to do is mistakenly type “weight loss”, and Google’s algorithm will incessantly hound you with adverts of 310 meal replacement, from every nook and cranny (anyone can sell supplements since they don’t need FDA approval), on every site you visit.
As a result of all these factors, more people are drifting towards natural meal replacement. Mostly because, let’s face it, the obesity rates aren’t dwindling down and surprise, people still find eating healthy and working out too difficult. So, here’s a list of some of these weight loss supplements.
Most Effective Natural Dietary weight loss supplements
1. Olive Leaf Extract
Apparently, no part of the olive plant is to be wasted. One of the substances in olive oil, oleuropein, which is responsible for most of its anti-inflammatory, antioxidant and disease-fighting properties can be found in the olive leaf as well. But aside from fighting free radicals in the body, olive leaf extract has been shown to improve how insulin works in the body, thereby cutting down on fat reserves from synthesized carbs.
So, it can normalize your glucose levels, thus balancing your sugar levels.
2. Cayenne Pepper
The burning sensation from consuming even half a teaspoon of cayenne pepper can curb your appetite and speed up your metabolism for weight loss. At least that’s what some studies have shown.
Actually, this isn’t a feature unique to cayenne pepper. It’s because it contains capsaicin, a thermogenic chemical that could help speed up one’s metabolism and decrease appetite.
These are naturally occurring biocontrol active ingredients that you’ll find in the shells of crustaceans and the walls of some microorganisms (like fungi, in case your vegan).
Chitosan has some special properties that bind with fat, thus decreasing fat absorption in the body. This way, the total calorie intake from any single meal is cut down. Cholesterol levels may also be reduced with constant consumption of chitosan supplements.
To lose weight, you’ll need to up your protein, vegetable and vitamins intake while cutting down on carbs. One of the most abundant amino acids is glutamine. And while most nutrition shakes will try to tell you otherwise, your body can produce it. And if you’re still doubtful, you can get it from protein-rich foods like fish, poultry, beans and so forth.
It’s really great in muscle building and repairs of worn out tissues from perhaps, stressful workout sessions.
5. Green Tea & Green Tea Extract
The extract is a more concentrated form of green tea. In large doses, the extract can damage some of your organs.
In moderate quantities, one of the most consumed teas in the world has been credited with preventing everything from skin diseases to liver problems, and even cancer due to its wide range of antioxidant properties. Regularly consuming green tea has also been shown to improve blood sugar.
6. Green Coffee Extract
Although the research on this isn’t conclusive, some research has shown a positive correlation between consuming unroasted coffee beans and greater weight loss. At least better weight loss gains than is expected when the coffee beans are roasted.
It’s generally thought to stimulate brown adipose tissue into thermogenesis. So, it makes your body oxidize fat instead of just storing it.
7. Grapefruit Essential Oil
There was a time when “speed diets” with “eat the only grapefruit and shed fat quick diets” were in vogue. These types of diets kind of gave grapefruits a bad name. But they really do have active ingredients that boost metabolic rates. As long as they’re taken proportionally, with healthy meals, grapefruit essential oils can help you lose weight.
Wrapping It Up
Synthetic dietary supplements for weight loss generally don’t sit well with people, because most of them have other active ingredients which either have negative side effects or no effects at all.
Natural weight loss supplements for women and men are becoming more popular because they’re less adulterated. And moreover, most people can grow them in their home gardens. So, if you’re still on the fence about what dietary supplement to get, why not try something natural?
A couple of months ago, the National Infrastructure Commission revealed that 93% of adults in the UK now own mobile phones, but on a global scale, mobile ownership is set to rise seven times by 2021.
Total number of mobile phones globally will rise to 5.5 bn by 2021, says a forecast by Cisco.
Smartphone usage is more of a norm than an exception in today’s times. With the role of smartphones in our lives increasing by the day, it is but natural to assume that their sales will rise substantially in the coming years. However, a forecast published by Cisco today revealed that smartphone usage in the future will be a lot more than we could ever imagine.
The 11th annual Cisco Visual Networking Index Global Mobile Data Traffic Forecast states that global mobile phone usage will rise seven-fold in the next four years and that as many as 5.5 billion mobile devices will cater to an estimated 7.8 billion people by 2021. Per capita mobile device usage will rise to 1.5 and the total number of mobile-connected devices, including machine-to-machine (M2M) modules, in circulation will rise to 12 billion from 8 billion in 2016.
“Mobile is the way to go. Increasingly, more and more people are getting connected to the mobile technology and in fact, as per our latest findings, there are more mobile users than there are people with running water and bank accounts in many countries around the globe,” said Shruti Jain, senior analyst at Cisco.
The Cisco forecast also estimates that live mobile video consumption will rise by up to 39 times between 2016 and 2021 and will constitute 5% of overall mobile video consumption, which will rise by 8.7 times from 2016 to 2021. At the same time, mobile data traffic will represent 20% of total IP traffic in 2021. Mobile network connection speeds will also increase threefold from 6.8 Mbps in 2016 to 20.4 Mbps by 2021.
4G networks across the globe will also become the norm by 2021, with 5G network being introduced in new regions. According to the forecast, 4G will support 58 percent of total mobile connections by 2021, up from 26 percent in 2016 and will account for 79 percent of total mobile data traffic. 5G networks will have a share of 1.5% total mobile data traffic by 2021 ‘and will generate 4.7 times more traffic than the average 4G connection.’
The concept of VR will also be embraced by a lot of people in the coming years. Cisco states that sales of VR headsets will grow by five times between 2016 to 2021. While there are 18 million VR headsets in use today, the number will rise to a 100 million in 2021. AR traffic will also grow from 3 petabytes/month in 2016 to 21 petabytes /month in 2021.
Mobile data traffic will grow by as much as 12 times in the Middle East and Africa by 2021. At the same time, it will grow by 7 times in the Asia Pacific region, 6 times in Central, Western and Eastern Europe and Latin America and five times in North America.
Google’s latest Android distribution numbers suggest that newer operating system are gaining ground at an increasing pace compared to one or two years ago. The Android ecosystem was always plagued by extremely slow uptake of newer versions but the good news is that things are changing, albeit slowly.
As on 6th February, Android 6.0 Marshmallow, which was launched back in 2015, claimed a market share of 30.7%, the most for a single OS version. This means that at least one in every three Android phones runs an OS which is less than two years old. Android 5.0 and 5.1 Lollipop which date back to 2014 together hold a market share of 32.9% but their share is down from 34.1% in November 2016. Marshmallow’s share has also grown impressively from 24% in November to 30.7%.
Android Nougat (7.0 and 7.1) is only a few months old but its total share in Android devices has surpassed that of Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich, which hold 1% share respectively. With a number of Android devices launching at Mobile World Congress later this month followed by many more over the course of the year, Nougat’s share will rise significantly by the turn of the year.
The worrying trend is that Android Jelly Bean continues to boast a market share of 11.3%, but that is down from 13.7% a few months ago. At the same time, Android KitKat owns a meaty market share of 21.9% but that is also down from 25.2% in November 2016. Overall, the numbers have shown steady improvement over the past few months but it will be a while before Google gets to boast the kind of new OS uptake percentage that Apple does at the moment.
Carphone Warehouse have announced Nokia 150, an extremely cheap handset featuring a camera, MP3 player, torch and Bluetooth functionality.
Nokia 150 costs just £34.99 SIM free and can be purchased either SIM-free or on Pay As You Go from Carphone Warehouse.
It has been a while since we last used those Nokia handsets- cheap, light yet featuring long battery lives and extremely durable. If you have been wondering whether you will be able to get your hands around such feature phones again, Carphone Warehouse have announced the Nokia 150- a perfect answer for Nokia fans in the UK.
True to its price tag, Nokia 150 doesn’t boast of any astounding features or specs. It doesn’t even run the internet if you were curious. But what it’ll offer you are a small display, a camera, MP3 player, torch and Bluetooth functionality, just like those good old feature phones.
What’s amazing about the Nokia 150 is that it can run Snake adventure in colour and has a battery life of over a month. “We all know and love the classic Nokia phones, they are simple to use and built to last. We’ve now got the perfect solution for our customers who want that feel-good factor with the new Nokia 150!” said Jeremy Fennell, MD of Carphone Warehouse.
“The much-loved Nokia brand has always been a part of our unbeatable handset range and we’re looking forward to selling Nokia phones again in 2017. The arrival of the Nokia 150 marks the beginning of an exciting new partnership, one that will see even more Nokia handsets made available to our customers. We’re also hearing that there will be some exciting new announcements at MWC later this month,” he added.
British mobile phone users will spend an estimated £27.02 billion on online shopping from their mobile devices this year.
Mobile transactions will account for 40% of all online retail transactions in the UK this year.
Last year, a study conducted by MasterCard revealed that three in every four Brits enjoy online shopping and have never had a negative experience and that 82% of all Brits are either shopping online or using e-commerce services. A new research from VoucherCodes.co.uk and the Centre for Retail Research now claims that out of £67.38 billion in online purchases, around £27.02 billion will be conducted on mobile devices in the UK this year.
The research notes that total online sales in the UK are set to rise from £60.43 billion in 2016 to £67.38 billion in 2017 and £73.58 billion in 2018. At the same time, online transactions using mobile devices will rise from £21.51 billion in 2016 to £27.02 billion in 2017. The number of mobile shoppers is also set to rise from 23 million in 2016 to 28 million in 2017.
The research also found that while mobile devices will be used for 27.9% of online retail sales in Europe, their share of online purchases in the UK will be much higher at 40.1%. This is because of the advent of contactless payment systems like Apple Pay and Android Pay which ensure that payments are quick, secure and easy to perform.
“These latest figures confirm the increasing significance of mobile to both retailers and consumers, which is now the main driver for the continued growth of the online retail sector. This year, 40 pence of every pound spent online will come from a mobile transaction, a reality that retailers simply cannot ignore,” said Claire Davenport, Managing Director at VoucherCodes.co.uk.
“To remain competitive and respond to customer demands, it is more vital than ever for UK retailers to evolve their mobile offering. This can be done by providing an optimised and mobile-friendly online shopping experience, developing truly seamless customer experiences across all channels, and harnessing the power of targeted mobile marketing to drive footfall. As a nation, we are embracing mobile spending far more than our European counterparts – proving that the UK’s consumers and retailers are very open to digital innovation in retail,” she added.
While mobile devices are used a lot more in the UK to make online payments than in the rest of Europe, the per head value of transactions in the UK is also much higher compared to that of Europe. In 2017, an average UK resident will spend £1,428.39 shopping online, which is 38% higher than the European average of £1003.54. Also, while only 52% of Europeans do online shopping regularly, the percentage of such people in the UK is 72%.
Carphone Warehouse today opened pre-orders for HTC’s new U Ultra and U Play smartphones, promising deliveries by 1st March.
HTC’s U Ultra and U Play bring in advanced voice recognition, dual display and camera technologies.
While HTC previously revealed that both U Ultra and U Play smartphones will be available to purchase from February at HTC’s online store, Amazon, Very.co.uk and other retailers, Carphone Warehouse today made both handsets available for pre-orders. Both handsets can now be pre-ordered either SIM-free or on select Pay Monthly contracts.
HTC U Ultra
The U Ultra features a 5.7-inch 3D contoured liquid surface as well as a second display which displays useful notifications and also lets you access your favourite contacts, apps and reminders, very much like the secondary display in LG’s V-series phones. The phone’s internal specifications include Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 821 processor, 64GB of storage, 4GB of RAM, a 2TB MicroSD slot, a 3,000 mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support and a Quad HD Super LCD 5 display. HTC U Ultra will also be available as a premium 128GB variant which will also feature Sapphire Front Glass for better durability.
The 5.2-inch U Play also comes with Sense Companion, voice recognition, USonic and a 3D contoured liquid surface but lacks a secondary display. Its front cameras are similar in resolution as the ones in the U Ultra but the main camera is 16-MP one instead of a 12-MP UltraPixel one. Other specifications include a MediaTek™ Helio™ P10 processor, 32GB or 64GB of on-board storage, 3GB or 4GB of RAM, a 2TB MicroSD slot, a Full HD Super LCD display, a 2,500 mAh battery and a USB Type-C port.
HTC U Play
If you want to buy the U Ultra or the U Play SIM-free, then you will need to pay £649.99 and £469.99 respectively. Carphone Warehouse are offering the U Ultra with 24GB data at the upfront cost of £99.99 on Vodafone for £42 per month. The cheaper U Play is available to pre-order with 3GB data for free at £28.50 per month on O2.

Huawei’s upcoming flagship phone, the P10, could release at Mobile World Congress on 26 February and here are a few leaks and rumours of the device that are doing the rounds on the web.
Huawei P10 and P10 Plus will feature larger displays, powerful processors and may launch earlier compared to the P9.
Huawei’s P9 went on sale last year and as revealed by Huawei, went on to become the company’s most successful smartphone ever. By the end of 2016, the P9 and P9 Plus had notched up over 10 million unit sales worldwide, catapulting Huawei’s overall smartphone sales to 33.59 million in the third quarter alone. Such was the success of the P9 series that Huawei went on to deepen its collaboration with Leica Camera AG by creating a new research and innovation centre at Leica’s headquarters in Germany.
Huawei P10 to arrive in Blue, Gold and Green colours
Noted leakster Evan Blass today published a picture of the upcoming Huawei P10 flagship phone in three new colours- Blue, Gold and Green. These coloured variants will be in addition to White and Black coloured models which were leaked earlier.
The range of colours on offer is rare for a flagship phone, given that most phones arrive in two or three colour variants. It is not known yet if any of these variants will be a premium version of the phone or if the colour options will be limited to certain storage models like with the iPhone 7.
We have previously seen a leaked image of a premium Huawei P10 variant (shown below) with dual front cameras along with dual rear cameras. The variant also features a curved display with no bezels unlike the standard models. However, the variant didn’t appear in Blass’s tweet which suggests that the Black coloured variant could turn out to be the premium one.
Huawei P9 and P9 Plus were the first phones to feature German camera giant Leica’s dual-lens rear camera design aside from aerospace-class aluminium panels with rounded edges, strong 2.5D glass screens, 2.5GHz processors and virtual-triple-antenna architecture to ensure fast mobile internet round the clock. With the upcoming P10, Huawei is expected to bring in many more features and capabilities.
As per a recent leak, Huawei may introduce the P10 and P10 Plus phones as early as next month at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Unlike the P9’s 5.2-inch display, the P10 is slated to feature a larger 5.5-inch one which will be curved at both ends and sport a Quad HD resolution. Huawei may also include its new Kirin 960 octa-core processor with the P20 and P10 Plus which will be capable of generating clock speeds of up to 2.4GHz. The Kirin 960 processor features four 2.4 GHz A73 cores, four 1.8 GHz A53 cores, an i6 co-processor as well as a new Mali-G71 GPU for improved graphic output and is also present in the Mate 9 phablet.
According to another report, Huawei P10 and P10 may field a new HiSilicon Hi3660 octa-core chipset but the report hasn’t mentioned if the chipset will be more powerful or different compared to the Kirin 960. According to Trusted Reviews, Kirin 960 is based on a 16nm FinFET process whereas Snapdragon 835, which will equip most upcoming flagships, is based on Samsung’s latest 10nm-based FinFET process. It remains to be seen if Huawei will go with its own chipset or rely on Qualcomm’s more efficient, smaller and more powerful processor to drive sales.
Huawei P10 and P10 Plus may also feature up to 6GB or RAM and up to 256GB of internal storage with 32GB and 64GB as other possible variants. Considering that the P10 will sport a larger Quad HD display compared to a Full HD one in the P9, the P10 battery will need to be larger and will need to be accompanied by fast charging and battery saving technologies to offer the same, if not better, longevity to the phones. We can either expect Huawei to introduce a battery with a capacity of more than 3,000 mAh or the same with new quick charging and battery saving features.
Ever since the P9 and P9 Plus went on sale, Huawei has stuck with the dual-rear camera technology, featuring it in Honor 8 and Huawei Mate 9 among others. In the P10 and P10 Plus, Huawei is expected to include dual rear cameras again but with probably better resolutions, optical image stabilisation and other features. A recent leaked P10 benchmark revealed that the P10 may feature the same 12-MP and 8-MP rear cameras as in the P9. While this seems unbelievable considering the fact that the Mate 9 featured two 20-MP and 12-MP dual rear Monochrome and RGB cameras, we will wait for more leaks to appear before confirming the spec.
The 32GB Huawei P9 went on sale in the UK in May last year and was priced at just £449 with the larger P9 Plus retailing at £549. If Huawei manages to price the P10 at less than £450, it it may turn out to be the most popular phone of the year. However, considering how the devaluation of the pound following the Brexit vote affected prices elsewhere, the P10 may cost a bit more compared to the launch price of the P9.
LG G6 was supposed to arrive with a curved OLED display, but a recent report from Korea indicates that LG has shelved the idea.
New update: LG to debut new Mobile UX 6.0 with G6 at MWC
LG today revealed that LG G6 will feature the company’s new mobile UX 6.0 to maximise the benefits of the 5.7-inch FullVision display which will field an aspect ratio of 18:9 and will fill the phone’s face almost entirely.
Through a press release, the company today waxed lyrical about the benefits of the new mobile UX. Thanks to a 18:9 aspect screen, the G6′ Camera UX will divide the screen into two squares to let users shoot 1:1 pictures and review them in adjacent windows. The new Camera UX will let users capture images using Food Mode which delivers high quality images and saturation mode ideal for food pictures.
The new mobile UX will also afford more surface area to users while browsing, playing video games or reading e-books. The new aspect ratio will also facilitate viewing existing 16:9 ratio content and will support a wide range of films, apps and games tailored to the ratio in the coming months.
“The LG G6 with FullVision was inspired by the philosophy of experts in the movie industry who believe that an 18:9 ratio screen would be the best solution for viewing both old and new cinematic content in the digital age. We’ve not only embraced that philosophy in our newest smartphone but taken it to a whole new level by incorporating the 18:9 format in many other ways. I think users will appreciate the many ways we’ve made the LG G6 more productive,” said Juno Cho, president of LG Mobile.
LG will also explain in detail other advantages of mobile UX 6.0 at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on February 26th. These may include usage of more apps on multi-window mode, creating Collage Wallpapers and using calendar and schedules at the same time.
LG G6 to feature 32-bit Quad DAC audio, confirms LG
The V20 was the first handset from LG to feature Quad DAC audio support, which was a much improved version of the 32 bit Hi-Fi DAC by ESS Technology in the V10. Sadly, the V20 didn’t reach the shores of Britain, forcing buyers to look elsewhere to enjoy premium mobile audio experience.
In a great news for LG fans, LG recently confirmed in Korea that the 32-bit Quad DAC designed by ESS Technology will feature in the upcoming LG G6 as well. The new 32-bit Quad DAC audio tech will replicate the experience offered by professional home-audio systems when you connect the G6 with compatible wired headphones and will also reduce ambient noise levels by up to 50%.
The V20 was embedded with B&O PLAY’s audio technology as well to help the handset deliver a ‘natural and balanced sound’, the quality of which, said B&O PLAY President Henrik Taudorf Lorensen, people had never experienced before. As a result, V20 handsets were shipped with special pairs of B&O PLAY earphones in the box to let users experience the best in audio technology. It will be interesting to see if LG will use a similar approach with the G6 to increase its popularity.
LG teases edge to edge screen on G6 in invites
LG have finally sent out official invites for the launch of their upcoming flagship phone, the G6. The event will take place on 26th February at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and at the event, we may witness the arrival of an all-metal design, a large display with minimal bezels, curved edges along with glossy black and matte black variants.
According to the invite sent out by LG, the G6 will feature a large edge-to-edge display which will boast of an enormous surface area, but at the same time, will fit smoothly in your palm because of lack of bezels. The shape of the display also suggests that there won’t be a home button but we cannot state that for sure until we’ve seen the phone at first hand. LG have decided to name 26th February as “LG G6 Day” so it is safe to believe that the company may not launch any other products or accessories aside from the G6 on the day.
Glossy black LG G6 variant spotted in recent leak
A few days ago, we came across a few pictures of an LG G6 handset with a matte black finish. However, Business Insider got their hands around a new G6 model with a glossy black finish. Will LG do an Apple and release both variants? Possibly yes, if both leaks are true.
Aside from the glossy black finish, the new image shows two LED flashes on the phone’s back flanked by two rear cameras and a fingerprint sensor below it. The edges curve smoothly inside both at the top and on the sides, thus confirming what we have seen and heard so far from existing rumours, leaks and images.
The glossy black version looks sleek and premium but may suffer from fingerprints and visible scratches once it gets old. The model looks more like featuring a shiny metal instead of a glass finish but the latter could also be true. We only have to wait till February 26th to find out.
Leaked LG G6 images suggest matte black variant, single speaker grills
Thanks to Droid-Life, we now have three new images of LG’s upcoming G6 but with a new revelation- LG may launch a matte black variant of the G6 similar to what Apple did with the iPhone 7. The images not only reveal the new texture, but also a single speaker grill at the bottom, a USB Type-C port, a near bezel-free display, twin-rear cameras like in the G5 and a fingerprint sensor below the cameras.
The images look like those of a prototype which is undergoing testing but based on what we see here, we can deduce that the G6 will be a tall and slim competitor, rivalling the iPhone 7 and Galaxy S8 in terms of looks, even though the lack of a Snapdragon 835 chip may rob it of the uber-performance tag. Nevertheless, existing leaks suggest it will be among the best ones to be launched this year and going by its looks, it will surely attract many more eyeballs than what its predecessor could achieve.
LG G6 will feature water resistance thanks to a non-removable battery
While we all know that LG G6 will not feature a modular design, something which has already been confirmed through various leaks, what has now come to light is that the G6 will be the first LG flagship phone not to feature a removable battery and will thus be water-resistant like the Galaxy S7 and the iPhone 7.
According to CNET who broke the news, LG has decided to ditch the removable battery concept and make the G6 waterproof to allow the phone to compete effectively with other water-resistant flagships. Poor sales of the LG G5 cost the company as much as $220 million last year and LG seems intent not to repeat its mistakes.
LG will be fielding the Snapdragon 821 processor instead of the new Snapdragon 835 in the G6 since Samsung has earmarked the new chip only for the Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus flagships. The company will also have to fight off rivals like Huawei and OnePlus who offer premium phones with low price tags and who will easily trump it in terms of cost effectiveness. As such, introduction of water resistance could be one of many new features that LG may introduce in the G6 to make it competitive enough to survive in the toughly contested premium phone market.
LG G6 is a stunner, leaked images suggest
LG G6, like what most leaks suggest, will launch at Mobile World Congress on February 26 but so far, we have come across a number of leaks and rumours which have given us a pretty good idea of what the phone will be like. While unconfirmed images of the smartphone have been spotted as well, The Verge today revealed an image which it says is a confirmed image of the upcoming LG flagship.
The image shows the top half of the phone featuring a single front camera, chamfered edges, thinner bezels and a flat display. Because the phone will feature a 5.7-inch QHD+ display, the screen to body ratio has been increased to 90% and the aspect ratio has been kept at 2:1, which makes us quite curious on how the visual experience will be like. To add to it, the display is curved around its edges, making the phone look unique and beautiful in appearance.
The phone also appears less curved at the corners compared to the G5 but resembles the Pixel and the iPhone 7 more, suggesting that LG has decided to reengineer the phone’s design not only to resemble the popular ones but also to move away from the G5’s unpopular design concept which was attuned to a modular setup. We’d love to view more images of the phone, especially of its back, but we’ll probably have to wait until February 26 for that.
Latest LG G6 leaked photos confirm dual rear cameras with metal & glass body
We have already come across a few renders of LG’s upcoming G6 flagship phone and from what we know, we should get to see the first official images of the G6 on February 26 when LG will host a launch event at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. However, that doesn’t mean we won’t get a peek or two at the flagship thanks to leaks, speaking of which, there are a couple of new ones.
Smartphone case maker Ghostec has revealed a couple of cases for the LG G6 with the phone placed inside these cases. The pictures reveal a metal and glass body, dual rear cameras flanking dual LED flashes placed vertically and a circular fingerprint sensor below the cameras just like in last year’s G5. At the front, there are noticeable gaps between where the display screen ends and where the edges are at the top and bottom, which destroys notions on the phone being bezel-free.
LG recently announced its new 5.7-inch QHD+ display and if the display screen does make it to the G6, then the G6 would easily be 6-inches long or maybe more. However, there’s no way to tell if these pictures are genuine so we will wait for more authentic sources to confirm these. As per LG, the new display screen is 30% more power-efficient and more responsive compared to its predecessor.
LG G6 may feature multiple displays with a large surface area
LG today gave another clear indication of what’s coming up at Mobile World Congress by sharing a new GIF on its Facebook page. The image shows a smartphone display which expands in three steps, suggesting that the G6 may feature not two, but three displays which may allow users to view two or three screens at a time or view notifications and updates on any of them. At the bottom, the display features a TV mode, a keypad shortcut and a fullscreen option.
The image may also indicate that the G6 screen could be taller than we thought, featuring lesser bezels and a larger surface area to make it easier for users to watch movies, surf the web or play games. Incidentally, LG’s previous teaser video had also hinted on a larger display including a second screen at the top for notifications and shortcuts to apps.
LG recently introduced its new 5.7-inch QHD+ display featuring a pixel resolution of 1440 x 2880 pixels and a pixel density of 564ppi. The display is 30% more power-efficient compared to LG’s InTouch QHD display which was used in the G5 and V20, is more responsive and comes with a thinner screen. Rumour says that the display is tailor-made for the G5 but may also feature in subsequent LG smartphones like the V30.
LG G6 to feature new cooling system and its battery will undergo extensive safety tests
Considering what happened to Samsung’s star-studded Galaxy Note 7, LG is leaving no stones unturned towards ensuring that the upcoming G6 will be totally safe to use and will not overheat or blow up. The company recently announced that it is including new copper heat pipes in the G6 to ensure that the heat generated will dissipate quickly and will keep the phone cool under all circumstances.
“We will significantly improve the safety and quality of our new flagship smartphones as more consumers seek safe smartphones,” said the company. According to the Korean Herald, the G6 will be the first LG smartphone to feature copper heat pipes which can be termed as an additional precaution the company is willing to take to avoid taking the Galaxy Note 7 route.
At the same time, LG is also subjecting the G6 battery to extensive safety tests to ensure it is immune to overheating or explosions. Testing on the G6 battery includes subjecting it to temperatures 15-degrees hotter than European standards as well as subjecting it to drop tests from great heights. With new smartphones featuring larger batteries than hitherto, it is the responsibility of manufacturers to ensure that performance and longevity aren’t ensured at the cost of safety and going by LG’s comments, it seems the company isn’t taking its responsibilities lightly.
LG’s first G6 video teases a large screen, waterproof design and more
LG has released its first teaser video for the G6 and going by what the company wants us to believe, the G6 may not be as large as the G5 but will feature a larger display which could be a result of a curved screen or a bezel-free design concept.
To add to the larger screen, the G6 will also feature a waterproof design but it remains to be seen whether it will be as waterproof as the Samsung Galaxy S7 or whether it will be simply splash-resistant. At the same time, LG also talks about ‘capture it all at once’ which may refer to a wide-angle camera, either rear or front, which may capture more landscape compared to existing LG phone cameras. In the teaser video, the body of the G6 looks slim and curved at the edges which is very much like Google’s Pixel or Samsung’s Galaxy S7 smartphones and is not much of a surprise.
LG G6 to feature LG’s new InTouch QHD+ display
LG today introduced a new 5.7-inch QHD+ resolution display which the company confirmed will be used in its upcoming flagship phone, the LG G6.
The new QHD+ display comes with a pixel resolution of 1440 x 2880 pixels and a pixel density of 564ppi which is more than in any other smartphone display in the world. Thanks to the display, the G6 will be able to offer immersive viewing experience to users thanks to an aspect ratio of 18:9 which will also facilitate dual screen multi-tasking which is one of the main features introduced by Android 7.0 Nougat OS.
“We expect to maximize user experience and customer value through the super high-quality display with its new 18:9 aspect ratio, which sets it apart from conventional displays for smartphones. LG Display will continue to set new standards in premium mobile displays, based on its differentiated technology,” said Dr. Byeong-koo Kim, Senior Vice President and Head of Mobile Development Group 1 at LG Display.
Despite being superior in terms of resolution, the QHD+ display is 30% more power-efficient compared to LG’s InTouch QHD display which was used in the G5 and V20. The display will also be more tough-responsive than its predecessors and its outdoor visibility will be better. The quicker responsiveness can be achieved thanks to a thinner display frame along with slimmer bezels.
LG G6, by most accounts, will not be a modular phone unlike the LG G5 so LG may introduce several new features to make the phone competitive and attractive to buyers. The new record-setting display could be one such feature and we are sure to hear about more such technologies in the coming days.
LG G6 is coming soon and will not be a modular phone
A new report in The Wall Street Journal quotes LG’s Chief Technology Officer Skott Ahn to confirm that G6 is in the works and will be launched ‘in the very near future.’ Considering that LG’s G-series flagship phones are usually launched at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February or March every year, it is now clear that LG has no plans of deviating from its regular schedule.
The report further states that the upcoming LG G6 will not be a modular phone, unlike the failed G5, and that LG will be focussing on its aesthetics and usability to make it both user-friendly as well as convenient to use. Considering how good the V20 was, even though it did not arrive in the UK, we are sure LG will be able to offer a strong alternative to the likes of Samsung Galaxy S8, HTC 11 or the iPhone 7. Skott Ahn has confirmed that LG is committed to the mobile business so we should expect the company to launch several new phones this year but that may depend on how well the G6 will be received in global markets.
Yet another piece of news coming in from the Wall Street Journal is that the LG G6 will be priced around the same as the G5, which means that the G6 should cost no more than £499 which will seem quite a bargain compared to the price tags of other competing flagship phones.
Leaked LG G6 renders betray lack of a modular design
It has often been said that the modular design of the LG G5, which was introduced as a game changer, ultimately led to its downfall. The outer casing of the G5 was tinny at best and the modular feature didn’t quite work out as smoothly as on the Moto Z. To add to it, LG delayed launching modular accessories for the G5 by several months, thus leaving G5 owners grounded and unable to use the phone’s unique features.
LG seems to have learnt its lesson, for leaked renders of the upcoming G6 flagship phone now reveal a lack of a modular design. Serial leakster @OnLeaks has published a 360-degree view of the G6 which shows pretty much everything one needs to know about the phone. There’s a dual rear camera setup, a fingerprint scanner on the back, a USB Type-C port on the bottom, glossy and matte finish back panels, a 3.5mm headphone jack and front-facing speakers. The images were first published by Gear India and as far as we can see, there are no separate outlets or connectors in the phone for any modular accessories to jump in.
What this means is that LG would launch the G6 as a standalone device and may launch a number of accessories which will connect wirelessly with it. The Korean electronics giant has already announced plans to launch a number of Bluetooth Wireless audio devices at CES next week so there’s no reason to suspect why the company wouldn’t launch more of them along with the G6 at Mobile World Congress in late February.
South Korean media outlet ChosunBiz claims that LG Display has expressed inability to produce curved OLED displays in large numbers for the LG G6.
LG has apparently been working on a number of technologies and modifications which the company is planning to introduce with the upcoming G6 flagship at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. These include a curved OLED display, full metal and glass body and a super-fast charging technology, all of which have now been shelved owing to different reasons.
According to ChosunBiz, LG Display, an arm of LG that specializes in smartphone display technology, is already consumed with making OLED display panels for the Apple Watch as well as for several LG smartwatches. As such, it is unable to produce fresh curved OLED displays for the LG G6 in time to meet the release date of the upcoming flagship. LG is now reportedly adding flat screen LCD display panels in the G6 instead of OLED ones.
It is also being reported that LG was to introduce full metal and glass bodies for the LG G6 but those plans have also been shelved thanks to cost overruns. It is thus possible that LG may use the same materials as the G5 in the new phone which looked nice but the feel of it didn’t really impress us. We have covered the look and feel of the LG G5 in detail in our review which you can read here.
Another casualty in the list is a fast-charging technology that LG was planning to launch with the G6 but it appears that the technology isn’t ready for commercial release as yet. Given the battery fiasco that destroyed Samsung’s Galaxy Note 7 push, it’s nice to see that LG are not taking any chances with the G6 so far. However, this also means that LG will continue to trail behind other phone makers like Samsung, OnePlus and Huawei who have introduced quick-charging technologies in their premium devices.
LG G5 was launched with modular functionality as its principal USP. The phone was made to work with interchangeable modules like LG Cam Plus, LG 360 Cam, LG 360 VR and a slide-out battery module to increase its scope beyond mere texting, calling, running apps or gaming. However, its pitch was destroyed with Lenovo launched the Moto Z and Z Force with even better modular functionality as well as better looks. It remains to be seen if the G6 will b able to turn the modular game in LG’s favour once it launches in February, despite losing out on several technologies which may impact its competitiveness.
LG brings Smart TVs closer to mobile
LG today announced that its Smart TVs running webOS will support over 140 different payment methods across the world. This capability will be enabled through apps enabled by developers for LG’s webOS and will enable consumers to make online purchases on their LG smart TVs.
Ths new ability, thanks to a partnership with Paymentwall, will not only let you access and pay for a large selection of TV content, but will also support payments from mobile phones, tablets and laptops. So by the time LG releases the G6, a large number of third party apps may already be present on the LG app storem letting you choose and pay for a variety of content from across the world.
“By collaborating with Paymentwall, we’re able to evolve the smart TV purchasing experience on the LG webOS platform much faster than if we had worked alone. This partnership is another example of how LG’s collaborative effort has elevated us into one of the leaders in the global smart TV industry,” said Brian Kwon, President and CEO at LG’s Home Entertainment Company.
Lenovo may launch the Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus mid-range phones at Mobile World Congress in February. Here’s what we know about the phones so far.
UPDATE: Images and detailed specs of Moto G5 Plus leaked
Lenovo is expected to unveil the new Moto G5 and Moto G5 Plus smartphones at Mobile World Congress next week but thanks to a careless electronics retailer in Spain, we now have several images and confirmed specifications of the larger handset in our hands.
Several images and specifications of Moto G5 Plus appeared recently on the website owned by Ktronics which were then promptly snapped and posted on Reddit by eager users. According to the inadvertent leak, the G5 Plus, which will cost slightly higher compared to the Moto G5, will feature a 5.2-inch Full HD display, a Snapdragon 625 processor, 2GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, a 3,000 mAh battery and a MicroSD slot which can accommodate up to 128GB of additional storage.
Weighing at 155g, the Moto G5 Plus will also be just 7.9mm thick, feature a scratchproof Gorilla Glass 3 screen and its nano-coating will ensure water resistance. The phone will run Google’s latest Android 7.0 Nougat OS.
The G5 Plus will also feature a 12-MP rear camera with dual pixels and a 5-MP front facing one. However, the specifications do not match those leaked earlier by a Romanian electronics seller. The seller had stated that the G5 Plus will feature a a 5.5-inch Full HD display, 32GB of internal storage, 4GB of RAM, a 3,080 mAh battery and a Snapdragon 625 processor. Turns out that the choice of processor for the G5 Plus was the only thing that he got right.
Chinese social media site Weibo has churned up a freshly leaked photo of Motorola‘s highly anticipated Moto G5. Lenovo have sent out invites for the launch that is due to take place on Sunday, February 25 in Barcelona during the annual Mobile World Congress event.
The leaked picture shows the back of the phone with a plastic trim on the primarily metallic effect body. As you can see the photo is quite low-res so it is impossible to say if it is going to be a metal bodied number.
The camera module pictured looks very much like those on the Moto Z Play and Moto Z flagship that were launched in Berlin in late-2016
And if you zoom right into the leaked photo (like us), you will also be able to spot the dual-LED flash flanking the lens.
With just over two weeks to go, we cannot wait to find out more about this, sure to be, blockbuster handset!
Moto G5 Plus may feature a 5.5-inch display, a 3,080 mAh battery and a Snapdragon 625 processor.
Lenovo may host a Moto launch event at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on 26 February and what we’re hearing from the grapevine is that the company may launch Moto G5 and G5 Plus ahead of schedule as successors to the popular and cheap Moto G4 and G4 Plus.
While not much is known about the Moto G5 as of now, the Moto G5 Plus was leaked earlier this month and from the looks of it, it may turn out to be yet another low-cost phablet featuring decent specifications. What we know so far is that the G5 Plus may feature a 5.5-inch Full HD display, 32GB of internal storage, 4GB of RAM, a 3,080 mAh battery and a Snapdragon 625 processor. Compared to the G4 Plus, it features a slightly more powerful processor but the same display and battery specs.
Moto G4 and G4 Plus were unveiled in May of last year so it seems that Lenovo may launch their successors earlier than thought. While it isn’t confirmed as yet that Lenovo will launch these new phones, what makes us so sure is that Lenovo has already ruled out developing a Moto smartwatch and the flagship Moto Z is only a few months old. Considering such facts, the Moto G5 and G5 Plus seem to be the most appropriate fits at the moment.
