CES Best of Innovation Awards

LG smartphone and smartwatch.

The Consumer Technology Association (CTA) has awarded LG Electronics for innovations in technology and design with multiple 2019 CES Innovation Awards.

The award-winning products include the LG V40 ThinQ smartphone and a new soundbar, both to be introduced in Las Vegas in January 2019. Other award-winning LG products that will be released at CES include the W7 watch, new laundry appliances, advanced TVs, audio systems and computers.

LG’s newest smartphone in the V series is the V40 ThinQ. It carries five cameras, an improved 6.4-inch FullVision OLED display and slimmer bezels, powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 845 Mobile Platform paired with 6GB of RAM and 64GB or 128GB of internal storage.

The rear camera module features three different lenses, a 16MP super wide-angle, 12MP standard angle and 12MP telephoto. The front camera module features a 5MP wide-angle lens and 8MP standard angle that work in tandem with an on-screen slider to adjust the amount of background blur.

For high fidelity audio this is the first LG phone to be tuned with Meridian Audio. The 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC produces a balanced sound signature that comes extremely close to the quality of an original recording. And Boombox Speaker, originally introduced on the LG G7 Thin Q doubles the bass of conventional smartphone speakers.  The phone will be available in Aurora Black, Platinum Gray, Moroccan Blue and Carmine Red.

LG’s first hybrid smartwatch, the W7 combines a mechanical movement with digital functionalities and is the first LG wearable with the new Wear OS Google platform.  In full operation mode on a single charge the W7 can run for up to two days, and an additional 3-4 days, in analogue-only mode.

In mechanical watch-only mode with its smart features disabled, the watch can operate for up to 100 days, or more than three months before requiring a charge. In addition to keeping time, the analogue hands also display additional information such as altimeter, barometer, stopwatch, timer and compass directions.

Launch dates, pricing and additional details for both the V40 ThinQ and W7 will be announced locally at availability.
