Up to this point, LG has stuck with LCD panels for its smartphone lineup. And while the G6, the company’s latest flagship smartphone, has a great display, OLED panels are all the rage (and for good reason). So it always felt like it was inevitable that, eventually, the Life’s Good crew would switch to OLED panels for its phones. And turns out that may be happening this year. A new report from The Investor says LG is planning on switching to an OLED panel for its next flagship smartphone,.

A video from a Nokia photograher has been posted on Vimeo showing off four Nokia devices.

We have yet another image of the Moto Z2 Play, an upcoming device in Lenovo’s 2017 lineup of Motorola devices. This time the device is pictured next to the last generation Moto Z and Moto Z Play. The biggest takeaway is the identical shape of the back, meaning all of the old Moto Mods should fit the new device.
