LG wants to take a step forward with curved TV, as the technology now allows it, LG will be showcasing the World's first 21:9 curved IPS TV monitor at the IFA 2014 in Berlin at the beginning of September. This is a new monitor that features ultra-wide 21:9 aspect ratio and comes with a curved IPS panel. Its size is about 34".
The monitor should provide remarkable picture quality, its maker says. It has 3440×1440 resolution, which, if we go by vertical pixels alone, could actually be called "Quad HD" as LG does. The new monitor, which has the model number 34UC97, supports Thunderbolt 2 for high-speed data connections, and allows multiple devices to be daisy chained together. It's even got a 7W MaxxAudio stereo speaker system built-in.
Although it isn't official yet, latest leaks are suggesting that Samsung will not be waiting till the IFA 2017 to showcase the Galaxy Note 8. Instead, they will be hosting a separate Samsung exclusive event in New York to announce the next Note in line. This event will allegedly be held merely days before the IFA begins in September and the date is expected to be August 26. Even if this turns out to be true, LG will be right on the heels of Samsung with their successor to the LG V20, the LG V30; which is rumored to be launched on August 31st, a day before the IFA commences.
Given that the LG V30 will be significantly cheaper than the Galaxy Note 8 (expected price is $700), Samsung could have some serious competition on their hands. While the LG V30 will in all likelihood, not feature a curved panel, it is possible that LG may finally shift to OLED panels with the V30. Combine that with excellent camera performance which the V-series is famous for and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 to get an idea of what to expect.

LG has just started selling the LG G Watch on the Google Play store. However, we are hearing reports and confirmation about the 2nd Generation G Watch. According to an LG official speaking to the KoreaTimes, LG will unveil a brand new smartwatch (LG G Watch 2) at the IFA 2014 fair in Berlin, which is only a month away.
It's unclear whether LG will show the G Watch 2 to users or have a media and business clients-only affair. The source point that the LG G Watch 2 could have an OLED panel made by LG Display and make use of a Qualcomm chipset.
LG was reportedly eyeing its in-house Odin chips for the task but they aren't yet ready to make it to commercial products.
The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is just days away from being officially announced at the IFA trade show in Berlin, and the leaks keep piling up. The latest is in the form of a UAProf found on Samsung's mobile site, which confirms a large number of the devices' specifications.
These latest bits of information can be added to what else we've heard regarding the device, including the 5.7-inch display, S-Pen, and USB 3.0 port alongside the fingerprint sensor and heart rate monitor introduced with the Galaxy S5.
The device will also be one of the first to run Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 805 variant, which is hinted at making an appearance on the SM-N910S model of the Note 4.
Samsung's Sept,3 IFA event is very soon. Here's the first look at the upcoming Samsung Virtual Reality Headset. According to the photo source, the company is set to unveil this device (codenamed Project Moonlight) at its upcoming Unpacked event in Berlin and New York, where Samsung is also expected to announce the Galaxy Note 4.
The image seems to show a focus dial and ample lenses, as well as a front panel that would hold a phone, falling in line with previous rumors.
"Oculus" which uses a Note 3 display in some of its newer headsets has previously been reported to be tied up with this project, a nod to the fact that modern smartphones have large, ultra-high-resolution displays and enough sensors to accomplish much of the orientation that a full virtual reality system needs.
