LG is a very curious manufacturer in the tech world. In the end, it always has great build quality, very interesting specifications, eye-catching designs, but something always seems to be missing. One of the biggest examples of what I’m talking about is the brand’s failure in the world of Android smartphones! Where we had super interesting devices like the LG G3, capable of conquering the public. But all of a sudden, after some questionable bets, and innovations that didn’t interest anyone, the brand ended up disappearing, without a trace.
Well, having said all that, LG seems to be now willing to bet on the world of gaming laptops, at a time, when truth be told, this market is more saturated than the world of smartphones that the brand decided to abandon a few months ago. Well… let’s wait and see what the machine is worth!
LG seems to be betting on gaming notebooks. Now look!
Therefore, LG very recently announced what it says is its first notebook focused on video games. THE Ultragear 17G90Q, a notebook with a 17” screen, which combines an eleventh generation Intel Core processor (Tiger Lake H) with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Max-Q graphics card. In the memory field, we have 32GB of RAM and 1TB of NVMe storage.
However, as you may know, LG is not a newcomer to the world of notebooks, as it is even responsible for one of the most curious ultraportables on the market, the Gram. But a more Gaming focused notebook? This is new for the South Korean giant.
Well, obviously, in the world of games, you need to have specifications designed for this world. Therefore, we have an IPS LCD screen capable of reaching 300Hz, a 93 Wh battery, an RGB keyboard, a 1080p camera, and interestingly, a fingerprint sensor in the ‘On’ button. In the field of build quality, we have a body made entirely of aluminum, with a very ‘gamer’ gray color.
We still have no idea of the price of this ‘boy’, but it is very likely that he will be presented with all the pomp and circumstance at CES 2022, on the 4th of January.
Besides, what do you think about all this? Good bet from LG? Or will it be more of a ‘fail’? Please share your opinion with us in the comments below.
