We’ll see many smart phones folding at the Mobile World Congress MWC 2019 to be held in Barcelona, Spain next week. Earlier reports had indicated that we will likely see a smartphone capable of folding from LG at this event. However, revealed the South Korean company now that it has no plans to reveal the smartphone folding in the exhibition MWC 2019.
Expected that the company Samsung detects many smart phones later this day, including a smart phone foldable. It is planned to follow other companies like Huawei and Xiaomi likewise at the Mobile World Congress MWC 2019. It was expected to be LG her hat in the ring also.
It was presumably reasonable because the company had to disclose a smart TV met FAO CES CES 2019, which was held in Las Vegas early last January. However, it seems that LG feels that it is ” premature ” launch of the smart phone foldable.
Head of Department of mobile devices in the LG, Mr. Brian Kwon : ” I see our decision to launch smartphone foldable when is the launch of the phone compatible with 5G networks, but we decided not to produce it “. He added that the company LG is now focusing on restoring its position in the smartphone market, and as a result it is ” too early for the company to launch smartphone foldable “.
And do not rule out that possibility completely, but the comments make it seem that LG first want to join the smartphone market folding a little bit before you decide to compete in it.
