    Twin Wash System for laundry and Double Door-in-Door fridge.
  • David Katzmaier 1/5/2015 4:28:16 PM
    That washer dryer pair looks perfect for your chrome-centric glam basement renno.
  • Sarah Tew 1/5/2015 4:28:50 PM
  • David Katzmaier 1/5/2015 4:28:54 PM
    A washer within a washer!
  • Ben Fox Rubin 1/5/2015 4:29:00 PM
    VanderWaal said LG developed a mini-washer under the washing machine.
  • Ben Fox Rubin 1/5/2015 4:29:10 PM
    Can do two loads of laundry at once.
  • Ben Fox Rubin 1/5/2015 4:29:42 PM
    You can use the mini-washer for special items, like delicates.
  • Sarah Tew 1/5/2015 4:29:51 PM
  • Ben Fox Rubin 1/5/2015 4:29:51 PM
    Said will save time and effort.
  • David Katzmaier 1/5/2015 4:29:53 PM
    Mini Me can finally get his uniform washed at the same time.
  • Ben Fox Rubin 1/5/2015 4:30:18 PM
    VanderWaal said you can buy the mini-washer separately and add to an existing washer.
  • Ben Fox Rubin 1/5/2015 4:30:55 PM
    I didn't think I'd actually be excited about a washing machine.
  • Sarah Tew 1/5/2015 4:31:19 PM
  • David Katzmaier 1/5/2015 4:31:36 PM
    Wow, sounds intense. Don't accidentally let your kitten fall into that thing.
  • Ben Fox Rubin 1/5/2015 4:32:23 PM
    So, we just posted the G Flex 2 news. This hasn't been mentioned on stage yet but will be soon.
  • Ben Fox Rubin 1/5/2015 4:32:52 PM
    VanderWaal is going pretty hardcore on how a washing machine works.
  • David Katzmaier 1/5/2015 4:33:23 PM
    In case anybody is bored with the appliance stuff, check out those OLED links. Yes, there will be a 65-inch flat OLED, as well as a 77-inch flexible one. No pricing yet though.
  • Ben Fox Rubin 1/5/2015 4:33:53 PM
    What?! Katz, you don't want to hear more about "the next level of wash"?
  • Sarah Tew 1/5/2015 4:34:01 PM
  • Ben Fox Rubin 1/5/2015 4:34:11 PM
    And on to the fridge.
  • David Katzmaier 1/5/2015 4:34:19 PM
    Just added: link to LG's new curved PC monitor. Seems like a better use of the curve than on a TV.
  • Ben Fox Rubin 1/5/2015 4:34:33 PM
    More door-in-door compartments in this new fridge.
  • Sarah Tew 1/5/2015 4:34:37 PM
  • David Katzmaier 1/5/2015 4:34:40 PM
    Meanwhile onstage: a Mini Me fridge too.
  • David Katzmaier 1/5/2015 4:35:22 PM
    Those are some purdy food props. I think I see some leafy greens peeking out.
  • Sarah Tew 1/5/2015 4:35:47 PM
  • Ben Fox Rubin 1/5/2015 4:35:55 PM
    Don't need to open the entire fridge to get to most-used foods -- cuts back on energy use. Sounds helpful.
  • Sarah Tew 1/5/2015 4:36:16 PM
  • Ben Fox Rubin 1/5/2015 4:36:31 PM
    Fingerprint avoidance systems are helpful for anyone with toddlers.
  • David Katzmaier 1/5/2015 4:36:34 PM
    The scourge of my kitchen is dirty dishes. Got anything for that, LG? Mini Me dishwasher?
  • Ben Fox Rubin 1/5/2015 4:36:50 PM
    Rachel Ray! Say EVOO, say EVOO.
  • David Katzmaier 1/5/2015 4:37:09 PM
    Even Rachel Ray is not immune to the influence of free schwag.
  • Sarah Tew 1/5/2015 4:37:30 PM
  • Ben Fox Rubin 1/5/2015 4:37:57 PM
    Appliance stuff is now wrapped.
  • David Katzmaier 1/5/2015 4:38:01 PM
    OK, eight or so minutes left. Time for mobile?
  • Ben Fox Rubin 1/5/2015 4:38:03 PM
    Guessing mobile is next!
  • Ben Fox Rubin 1/5/2015 4:38:10 PM
    Frank Lee, mobile guy, onstage.
  • Ben Fox Rubin 1/5/2015 4:38:13 PM
    Here we go.
  • Sarah Tew 1/5/2015 4:38:20 PM

    LG, the fifth largest smartphone maker in the world by units shipped, was expected to unveil a new smartphone at the event. Rumors were percolating that it will come out with a G Flex 2 phone -- the heir to the curved-screen G Flex the company launched in 2013.
  • David Katzmaier 1/5/2015 4:39:04 PM
    True story: I stepped on our LG G Flex review sample (lightly) and it didn't break.
  • Ben Fox Rubin 1/5/2015 4:39:14 PM
    The G Flex is one of a handful of experimental phones that veer away from the typical black rectangle look of smartphones, instead offering a curved phone that contours to the shape of your face.
  • Ben Fox Rubin 1/5/2015 4:39:31 PM
    Other experimental designs include the Samsung Note Edge, with a screen that uses a curved display that drapes over one side of the phone, acting as a ticker or extra set of icons. Another is the Samsung Galaxy Round, which has a concave face.
  • Ben Fox Rubin 1/5/2015 4:39:41 PM
    And here it is, gliding on stage.
