LG, ZTE to launch 5G smartphones at MWC

Share

The South Korean tech firm, which is scheduled to launch its LG G8 ThinQ during MWC 2019 conference, has confirmed that it won't be launching a foldable smartphone to The Korea Times.

LG has already started rolling out the rollable TV at the Consumer Electronics Show this year.

LG will show off its new phones at a press event at the CCIB convention center in Barcelona on February 24, a day before Mobile World Congress opens. The banana-esque form-factor failed to catch on more broadly in the industry, though LG did follow up with a G Flex 2, as devices with curved sides gained traction instead. Yes, the fourth-largest US carrier and the only network that's suing AT&T for misleading consumers with its fake "5GE" branding is apparently diving into 5G.

LG's dual display phone is rumored to come with a separate second screen that can be attached to the back or beside the main screen, although the company did not confirm the details.

Echoing what his boss said late a year ago on the subject, Kwon also mentioned that LG doesn't plan to release a foldable smartphone yet.

It is said to offer a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, similar to what we have seen on the LG V40 ThinQ.

We've heard plenty of rumors and speculation about the LG G8 ThinQ but not too much about the LG V50 ThinQ at this point.

Whether this wait and see approach pays dividends remains to be seen, with the likes of Huawei, Lenovo and ZTE also said to have foldable devices headed to MWC 19 next week. "In terms of technology, we are fully ready to respond depending on consumers' reactions (to foldable smartphones)".

Kwon, who has headed LG's home appliances unit since 2015, was tapped to lead the troubled mobile business unit late past year. At CES 2019 Telstra announced that it have made some exclusive 5G phone partnerships for 2019, but the telco didn't confirm with who.
