LG I want all your ThinQ AI products for my Smart Home. Videos.



Seriously, I will make the impossible to get all LG ThinQ AI products to built my new Smart Home in my country. I hope LG tell me when they will be ready with a 100% accuracy and performance of their products to make a Home and my family really happy.

We know LG has the answer and a date. Just take  a look to this video:






LG ENTERS DEEPTHINQ MODE TO ADVANCE AI PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
Proprietary Deep Learning Platform to Power Product Development.

LG Electronics is developing its proprietary deep learning-based artificial intelligence technology with the rollout of its own AI development tool to all LG business divisions in line with its efforts to speed up the release of new products equipped with the latest technology.

DeepThinQ 1.0 was developed last year with the establishment of LG’s Artificial Intelligence Lab in Korea to accelerate research into AI. The platform enables easy integration of AI into a wider range of products, allowing LG product developers to apply deep-learning technologies to future products. In line with the open strategy of its recently announced AI brand ThinQ, LG products developed with DeepThinQ – from mobile devices to home appliances – will deliver a comprehensive user experience by linking a host of technologies and solutions to its state-of-the-art AI platform.

DeepThinQ 1.0 boasts AI functions such as voice, video and sensor recognition and space and human body detection, developed with data gleaned from usage habits of LG customers over the years. DeepThinQ 1.0 was designed from the ground up with openness and diversification in mind, supporting a variety of operating platforms such as Android, Linux and webOS.

And with LG ThinQ, “live and learn” takes on a whole new meaning. Products developed on the DeepThinQ platform educate themselves using cloud servers to become smarter over time. This learning feature is at the heart of DeepThinQ, allowing LG AI products to understand not only their external environments but also the behavioral patterns of their customers. For example, LG ThinQ air conditioner learns customers’ living patterns over time and cools the room automatically to the temperature preferred by the occupant. In the car, LG’s cabin monitoring technology learns the driver’s facial expressions and gestures and recognizes the moment the driver starts to get drowsy. Eventually, ThinQ will be able to automatically adjust the music, lighting or climate inside the car by learning about the passengers who most often occupy the car.

DeepThinQ is already changing the way certain products targeting the commercial and consumer sectors are designed. LG’s Airport Guide Robots at Korea’s Incheon International Airport employs sophisticated ambient noise to improve voice recognition enabling passengers to be better understood. LG’s robot vacuum cleaner learns the difference between a chair and a dog and navigates accordingly.

“DeepThinQ is the embodiment of our open philosophy – to provide the most powerful AI solutions to our customers via a strategy of open platform, open partnership and open connectivity,” said Dr. I.P. Park, Ph.D. Chief Technology Officer at LG Electronics. “ThinQ will completely change the way consumers use our products because ThinQ products will learn about them to provide intelligent services, not the other way around.”

MWC 2018: You will recieve your Galaxy S9 or S9+ in March 16th.

Image result

After the leaked retail box of the SGS9, @evleaks apparently has recieved a tip that the smartphone will have the following schedule until its release to the public:




So the launch could be done a day before according to the west continent America that is Feb 25 but for South Koreans will be Feb 26.

Samsung's mobile chief DJ Koh said last week that his company would unveil the Galaxy S9 line at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month. He didn't say when the devices might hit store shelves.

Traditionally, Samsung has used the day before Mobile World Congress kicks off to unveil its new Galaxy handsets in a UNPACKED  Galaxy event.

LG G7 could steal the MWC 2018 show. Picture leaks.



TigerMobiles have obtained a rendering of what they say is the upcoming LG G7. Although details are scant on what exactly the smartphone might offer, the image appears to show a device with a screen-to-body ratio that could top what you'd find in this year's Galaxy S9.

The image shows an exceedingly thin bezel at the top where the earpiece and front-facing camera is located. Around the sides and the bottom of the handset, the bezel is practically eliminated, creating the appearance of a device covered entirely by a screen.

LG, it seems, has found a way to remove the bottom bezel.

The LG G7 is anticipated to house a Snapdragon 835 chipset combined with 6GB of RAM. The phone will come with a Quick Charge 4.0 feature, dual front camera and dual rear camera alongside the fingerprint sensor.

If that above picture is the real deal the LG G7 could steal the upcoming MWC 2017 show.

LG world`s first 4K UDH 1 projector, beams a 150 inch picture.



The LG world`s firts 4K  UDH 1projector powered with WebOS 3.5 can beam a 150 inch pinture on your wall and with 2500 lumens.

Press Release:

LG Electronics (LG) is committing to expanding its competitiveness in 4K UHD home projectors with the HU80K series, its first 4K UHD 1 projector, the recipient of CES’ Best of Innovation award for delivering ultra-sharp video and a home cinema experience in a compact, beautiful design. With the global 4K projector market expected to grow rapidly, LG is confident that its leadership in the LED projector segment can be repeated in the 4K projector segment as well.

Traditionally, projectors that support 4K images tended to be heavy, expensive and cumbersome to install in the home. LG engineers and designers took on the challenge of downsizing the 4K UHD projector without sacrificing image quality and came up with a premium device that is half the size of competing 4K projectors while still being easier on the wallet. LG’s 4K UHD projector promises great cinematic experience thanks to its excellent 4K picture quality and portable size, meaning that the movie environment can be created in any room of the house at any time.

With high-quality video content being available to consumers in more formats than ever before, the benefit of a device with the versatility to display streaming content as easily as a Blu-ray disc has never been more apparent. LG’s 4K UHD projector can create a 150-inch screen at an amazing 2,500 lumens, making this LG’s brightest projector. What’s more, the LG 4K UHD projector also supports HDR content (HDR 10) for an eye-popping cinematic experience in the home.

The projector’s portable size and unique upright design is only made possible by the mirrorless I-shaped engine which allows the projector to show perfect images whether it’s placed on the floor, mounted on the wall or hanging from the ceiling. With a convenient carrying handle and Auto Cord feature, owners may never want to mount the LG 4K UHD projector since it looks great in any room for any occasion. What’s more, the Mirror Reflector can be used as a lens cover to protect the projector from dust when stored away. Two powerful yet clear 7W speakers deliver a true cinematic audio experience without the need for external speakers or a soundbar.

LG 4K UHD projector owners will have no shortage of content to watch, as the projector’s webOS 3.5 smart TV interface can access the most popular online streaming services offering 4K content. And standard connectivity options include ports for USB, Ethernet and HDMI, as well as wireless support for external devices such as a keyboard and mouse.

LG just upgraded WebOS from 4.0 to 5.30.01 for Smart TVs?




These guys from techwibe are saying that they have already updated an LG LH 604 T Smart TV Full HD Version from LG WebOS 4.0 to LG WebOS 5.30.01 and using his LG LH 604 T Full HD version Smart TV  found the following:

Note : You can’t directly go from WebOS 3.5 to WebOS 5.3 .

My experience after using LG LH 604 T Full HD Version review after using it for 4 months.

What did we checked before switching or buying this Television ?

Pros

The picture quality, price, Miracast to mirror my laptop screen and ability to stream 1080p videos without any problem.

Is there a non FHD version ?

Yes and the price is lower and all the specs same as that of FHD version.

Every thing in short after my 4 months of experience.

Super sharp display (FHD, IPS Panel) and viewing angles

Cheaper than other bands

Dust won’t settle on your screen, but on other parts dust may settle if you are living a dusty region
WebOS frequently updated with patches.

Eye comfort mode

Good sound quality

Supports almost all video and audio formats like MKV, AVI, DiviX, AAC etc

Inbuilt apps for Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime Video and some country specific apps
Support for Miracast or screen sharing or Inter WiDi. 

Note WiDi is used only in old laptops models

Screen can be turned off, when playing only music.

Remote with pointer mouse, so you can type songs or movie names quickly in YouTube, Netflix etc on the on screen keyboard. Also when you connect or mirror your laptop screen to this TV, remote pointer can be used as mouse and there is scroller on the remote. But only double click supported, no right nor left clicks

Subtitles in the video is supported

2 Years LG warranty (Note this is country specific, so do ask your seller about this)

Very less power consumption, screen consumes 4% of power, speakers consumes (20 Watt) 3% of total power input

Cons

TV lags

Sound mode can’t be changed quickly like picture mode

No support for wireless headphones

Web browser closes after we viewed around 15 1080p YouTube videos, it says out of memory and during restart of the browser the crashed web page is shown for us to continue playing videos

In built YouTube app settings has no option to set resolution of video to play only 1080p videos

Universal remote costs around $75 if you need to buy a new one, note : till now there are no probs with my universal which I clubbed with my set top box (CISCO one) and all functions are supported

During Miracast laptop mouse lags and still now I don’t know how to solve this issue.

Documents like docx,PDF can’t be opened from flash drive or hard drive, but from Miracast its possible.

Does it support USB mode of android mobiles ?

My Sony Xperia USB mode supported but my lenovo USB mode not supported and this is weird!
Final Thought

For this price and with this much features loaded, we say its a good go one.

Calendar Year 2017: Worldwide PC market share: HP 22.7%, Lenovo 21.1%, Dell 16.1% says IDC.




Table Notes:

Some IDC estimates prior to financial earnings reports.

Shipments include shipments to distribution channels or end users. OEM sales are counted under the company/brand under which they are sold.

Traditional PCs include Desktops, Notebooks, and Workstations and do not include Tablets or x86 Servers. Detachable Tablets and Slate Tablets are part of the Personal Computing Device Tracker, but are not addressed in this press release.

Data for all companies are reported for calendar periods.



IDC's Worldwide Quarterly Personal Computing Device Tracker gathers detailed market data in over 90 countries. The research includes historical and forecast trend analysis among other data.

Worldwide shipments of traditional PCs (desktop, notebook, and workstation) totaled 70.6 million units in the fourth quarter of 2017 (4Q17), recording slightly positive (0.7%) year-on-year growth, according to the International Data Corporation (IDC) Worldwide Quarterly Personal Computing Device Tracker. The results outperformed the forecast of a 1.7% decline in shipments during the quarter.

The 4Q17 results further validate the view of a steadying, albeit still weak, traditional PC market, buoyed mainly by commercial upgrades and pockets of improving consumer PC demand. 2017 ended with an annual shipment volume of 259.5 million units, which represents a year-over-year decline of 0.2%. This makes 2017 the most stable year the market has seen since 2011.

Aside from commercial demand, 2017 was further helped by several other factors. Although the situation improved as the year progressed, the shortage of key components such as SSD (Solid State Drives) acted as a major driver of shipments for much of 2017, with top PC companies vying to lock up supply ahead of price increases and thus boosting orders. In response to the contracting tablet market, companies also returned their focus to the notebook market, shifting the product mix to appeal to key user segments and expanding the number of slim, convertible, and gaming systems.

From a geographic perspective, the emerging regions were helped by a more favorable comparison against the tough market conditions in 2016, with Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) (APeJ) and Latin America both producing positive fourth quarter results. The United States remained a challenging market while Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) was stable and Japan continued to make steady gains with its sixth consecutive quarter of year-over-year growth.

"The fourth quarter results showed some potentially encouraging headway against the difficult environment in retail and consumer PCs," said Jay Chou, research manager with IDC's Persona l  Computing Device Tracker. "Enticed by a growing array of products that promise all-day battery life, high portability, and address emerging use cases that require more compute power, pockets of the consumer base are taking a serious look at these revamped PCs. However, the overall PC market remains a challenging one."

"The solid holiday consumer sales provided enough momentum for the PC market to stabilize a bit further," said Neha Mahajan, senior research analyst, Devices & Displays. "However, the growing popularity of other mobile form factors continued to have a dampening effect and led the overall U.S. PC market to perform below expectations."

Regional Highlights

The United States market experienced a decline in shipments in the fourth quarter of 2017 with a drop in both notebook and desktop sales despite reports of a strong holiday quarter. Overall, total PC shipments for 4Q17 stood at 16.5 million units.

The EMEA traditional PC market continued to gain strength, thanks to notebook growth from ongoing and accelerating mobility adoption. In addition to being a traditionally strong quarter in the consumer segment, 4Q17 shipments in the commercial space were strong, particularly driven by renewal projects that were postponed earlier. The fast approach of the compliance deadline for GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) in Europe and several reports of cyber security breaches made security a strong priority in the hardware refresh cycle among enterprises.

The APeJ traditional PC market came in above IDC's forecast in 4Q17. Good demand for gaming PCs and strong sales during the Singles Day promotion drove more shipments in the consumer PC market in China. In the ASEAN region, channel loading and promotions led to higher than expected sell-in in the Philippines and Indonesia. Elsewhere, weakening consumer spending after the Diwali festival impacted shipments in India.

The Japan traditional PC market exceeded IDC's forecast by a comfortable margin, achieving year-over-year growth of 3.8% versus the forecast of a 2.9% decline in shipments. The commercial segment seems to be driving this growth due to rising demand from Windows 10 migration (and the end of support for Windows 7 scheduled for Q1 2020).

Company Highlights

HP Inc. pulled further ahead as the top company, maintaining its lead through every quarter of 2017. Shipments grew 8.3% compared to a year ago for the seventh consecutive quarter of positive growth and volume hit more than 16 million units for the first time since the third quarter of 2011. HP further consolidated its position in the U.S. market, growing its market share to 34%.

Lenovo was the number 2 company in 4Q17 with a flat quarter compared to 4Q16. It continued to weather tough conditions in the U.S. as it works through management transitions and channel changes. Outside of the U.S., Lenovo made solid gains growing 3.9% year over year with solid notebook shipments during the quarter.

Dell Inc. held the third position in 4Q17, posting year-over-year growth of 0.7% and shipping more than 11 million units for the first time in 2017. Competition in the U.S. market remained tough for the company as its U.S. share and growth both suffered. Elsewhere the company saw solid numbers.

Apple remained in the fourth position and grew its shipments 7.3% in 4Q17.

ASUS and Acer finished the fourth quarter in a statistical tie* for the fifth position. ASUS saw its shipments decline 11.2% year over year in 4Q17. 

Meanwhile, Acer's focus on gaming PCs and related products, as well its presence in Chromebooks, helped it to close the gap with ASUS, despite a year-over-year decline in shipments.
