​LG launches Signature phone at higher price than iPhone X


LG Electronics has launched a limited edition “super” premium phone in South Korea.

The company will sell only 300 units of the LG Signature Edition, which will be priced around 2 million won ($1,800), higher than iPhone X’s 1.63 million won in the country.

LG has used the Signature brand for its high-end home appliances and TVs, but this is the first time it is being used for a phone.

The company’s reshuffle last week shows that its mobile business will likely be subsidiary to its TV and home appliance businesses. CEO Jo Seong-jin originally started the Signature brand in home appliances, with great success that led to record profits.

LG said the Signature phone, which comes in black and white, was made from materials used in boutique watches.

The design is focused on being “simple” and “dignified”. The backside uses zirconium ceramic that is said to reduce scratches. Consumers can choose to engrave their names in the back cover.

Its specification is near identical to the V30 and the phone has 6GB Ram and 256GB internal memory. It comes with Android 8.0, has Qi wireless charging, and LG Pay. It sports a 6-inch OLED display, has a 3,300 mAh battery, and a dual camera.

LG’s mobile business has posted 10 straight quarters of losses.

After just 2 weeks, iOS 11 is on a higher percentage of devices than any version of Android – BGR

Recent data from Mixpanel reveals that 38.45% of all iOS users are already running iOS 11. That’s not too shabby for an iOS update that went live just two weeks ago, especially when you consider that iOS 11 isn’t exactly a groundbreaking or must-have update. While iOS users haven’t adopted iOS 11 as quickly as they took to iOS 10, the overarching takeaway is that iPhone users are far more likely to be running the latest version of iOS than Android users are likely to be running the latest version of Android. Bringing this up may seem like a quick and easy way to poke fun at Android, but the benefits or running the most up to date version of a mobile OS — no matter the platform — can’t be overstated. New features notwithstanding, running an antiquated mobile OS typically leaves users more prone to serious security threats.

So how bad is it over on the Android side of the equation? Well, to be blunt, it’s pretty bad. Taking a look at Android’s developer dashboard, we see that not any single version of Android has amassed the 38.45% share iOS 11 already enjoys. What’s more, nearly half of all Android devices are currently running Android Lollipop or an even older version of Android. For some context, the initial Lollipop update went live all the way back in late 2014. Put differently, nearly half of all Android devices are running OS’ that, at the very least, are about as old as iOS 8. That’s dumbfounding.

As illustrated above, 32% of current Android devices are running Marshmallow (released 2 years ago in 2015!) while 17.8% of devices are running a variant of Nougat (released over 1 year ago). What’s even crazier is that more than 20% of Android devices are running KitKat or an even earlier iteration of Android. In stark contrast, nearly 94% of all iOS devices are running iOS 10 or later, which is to say that 94% of all iOS devices are running an OS that, at the most, is just about a year old.

Google has certainly done a decent job of increasing adoption of its more recent mobile OS offerings in recent years, but the search giant still has a lot of work to do if it ever wants to come close to reaching the level of iOS adoption Apple enjoys. So while Google understandably likes to boast about the ever-increasing number of Android handsets in-use, it’s important to keep in mind that many current Android users remain unable to take advantage of the best features Android brings to the table.

Stocks Rebound as Tech Sector Takes a Swing Higher, Nvidia and Apple Lead

Stocks rebounded on Tuesday, Sept. 26, as tech stocks took a swing higher, though continued geopolitical uncertainty and the wait for clarity on tax reform plans kept Wall Street on its toes. 

The Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 0.3%, the S&P 500 increased 0.24%, and the Nasdaq added 0.4%. 

Tech stocks were the best performers on markets Tuesday following Monday’s selloff. The sector had been under pressure on reports that demand for Apple Inc.’s (AAPL) latest iPhone models was far less than anticipated. Apple had already been in selloff mode after its newest Apple Watch model was found to have connectivity issues.

Nvidia Corp. (NVDA) was higher after inking a deal to provide chips to some of China’s largest cloud-computing companies. Alibaba Group Holding Ltd. (BABA) , Baidu Inc. (BIDU) , and Tencent Holdings Ltd. are integrating Nvidia’s Volta chips into its data centers, according to a statement.

Red Hat Inc. (RHT)  also contributed to sector gains after a better-than-expected second quarter. Net income of 53 cents a share came in far higher than 32 cents a share a year earlier. Adjusted earnings of 77 cents a share bested estimates by a dime. Revenue increased nearly 21% to $723.4 million, higher than consensus of $699.6 million. For the third quarter, the open-source software company anticipates revenue of at least $730 million, higher than $710.5 million estimated.

Other tech stocks on the rise included Alphabet Inc. (GOOGL) , Facebook Inc. (FB) , Cisco Systems Inc. (CSCO) , International Business Machines Corp. (IBM)  and Broadcom Ltd. (AVGO) . The Technology Select Sector SPDR ETF (XLK) increased 0.6%.

Concerns over warfare with North Korea increased to begin the week, holding markets underwater during the session on Monday, Sept. 25. North Korean officials have engaged in a war of words in recent weeks: on Monday, North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong Ho told reporters that the U.S. had “declared war on our country” and that it had the “right” to shoot down U.S. aircraft even outside of its airspace.

North Korea’s bellicose language follows on from U.S. President Donald Trump’s series of threats at his U.N. General Assembly address when he said he would destroy the country and called North Korean leader Kim Jong-un “rocket man.” Trump has yet to comment on the latest threats. 

Meanwhile, further information on the Trump administration’s highly coveted tax reform plans will finally be made public on Wednesday, Sept. 27. President Trump will lay out “new details” in a speech on Wednesday, Sept. 27, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters on Monday afternoon.

The Big Six — a group of officials from the White House and Capitol Hill — will likely scrap a previous plan to cut the corporate tax rate to 15% and instead aim for a rate between 20% to 23% in final legislation, according to Politico. The Big Six group includes Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, House Speaker Paul Ryan, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

The highlight on Tuesday, however, will be an appearance by Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen at the National Association for Business Economics Meeting in Cleveland. Yellen is scheduled to deliver the keynote luncheon address at 11:50 a.m. ET. Cleveland Fed President Loretta Mester will moderate a panel discussion on the global outlook at the same meeting at 9:30 a.m.

Oil prices took a breather early Tuesday, pulling back from a surge tied to the possibility Turkey might shutter major pipelines. Turkey’s President Tayyip Erdogan on Monday said he could close the pipeline running out of the Kurdish region of Northern Iraq in response to a non-binding independence referendum that was held on Monday. The pipeline to the Turkish port of Ceyhan pumps about 500,000 to 600,000 barrels of oil per day and is the main transport route for the Kurdish regions oil exports.

West Texas Intermediate was down 0.5% to $51.96 a barrel on Tuesday. Crude prices hit their highest level since mid-April on Monday. 

Equifax Inc. (EFX)  Chairman and CEO Richard Smith will retire from the company following a data breach that compromised information on about 143 million of the credit reporting firm’s customers. Smith had been in the position since 2005 following a long tenure as executive of General Electric Co.. Equifax’s chief information officer and chief security officer both resigned earlier this month.

Darden Restaurants Inc. (DRI)  fell after posting disappointing same-store sales growth. The parent of Olive Garden earned an adjusted 99 cents a share over its recent quarter, in-line with estimates, while revenue of $1.94 billion nudged past consensus of $1.93 billion. Same-store sales increased 1.7%, below forecasts of 2.1% growth. 

Carnival Corp. (CCL) increased 4% after beating profit and sales estimates over its recent quarter. Net income of $1.83 a share fell a dime from a year earlier. However, adjusted earnings of $2.29 a share exceeded expectations by 9 cents. Revenue of $5.52 billion topped estimates of $5.39 billion. CEO Arnold Donald also said operations were back to normal following an earthquake in Mexico and a string of hurricanes in the Caribbean. 

Micron Technology Inc. (MU) and Nike Inc. (NKE)  will report earnings after the bell Tuesday. 

Home prices rose at a better-than-expected pace in July, according to the latest reading on the S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller home price index. Prices increased 5.9% in July, 20 basis points higher than economists expected. Seattle, Portland, and Las Vegas reported the highest year-over-year gains among the 20 cities. Prices had risen 5.8% in June. 

New home sales showed a surprise decline in August, compounding a dismal July performance. Sales of newly-built homes decreased by 3.4% in August, failing to recover from their worst drop in seven months in July. Analysts had expected new home sales to increase by 3.3%. 

Consumer confidence dipped in September at a faster pace than anticipated. The Conference Board’s consumer confidence index fell to a reading of 119.8, down from 120.4 in August. Confidence in present conditions declined, while expectations ticked higher. Confidence in Texas and Florida, two states victim to recent hurricanes, saw a sharp decline.
