LG G8 to launch on 24 February at MWC 2019? Invite arrives
We have received a video “Save the Date” invite (above) for an LG Premiere event where we believe the new phone will launch. We might even get to see LG’s first folding handset.
It means LG will follow with its flagship press briefing just four days after the Samsung Galaxy S10 launch event.
We don’t have an official time yet, but Korean website ET News claimed that the event will start at 10am local time and run for an hour. We presume that is “local time” as in CET for Barcelona, so 9am in the UK.
Numerous leaks have surfaced in the past few weeks, showing what we can expect from the LG G8. Despite rumours it could have a dual display, it appears to be a rather standard Android phone with a notch, as well as dual cameras and a fingerprint sensor on the back. Considering Samsung might launch its foldable phone days earlier, LG will have to debut more than the LG G8 to really wow us.
Maybe LG will release a version of the LG G8 with a dual display, or the LG V50, which would be the sequel to the LG V40. We also haven’t seen an LG K phone in a year, so there’s that. But none of this has been confirmed by LG.
We should learn more soon. Mobile World Congress takes place from 25 February to 28 February. Pocket-lint will be there to bring you the latest.
