Sometime back we tipped that LG G8 may make its debut at the MWC 2019. Back then these were just rumors, however, latest reports suggest that LG may be going ahead with its plan to take center stage at the Mobile World Congress. Off late brands have been staying away from launching their premium devices during these tech shows because of divided attention from media.
LG’s decision could be a bold move here since there aren’t many premium launch events scheduled at the MWC this year. While earlier it was reported that LG may announce a foldable device at the ongoing CES, however, the South Korean company has decided against it.
The company feels that the foldable phone market is not yet mature and that the company should keep its focus on primary devices first. LG may now not announce its first phone with a flexible display at the MWC for the same reason.
If LG goes ahead with its plan to launch the LG G8 at MWC this year, it would be the company’s first launch at this tech show after the launch of LG G6 in 2017. Besides LG, even Xiaomi is rumored to be planning to host a launch event the same day as LG. As of now even we are not sure as to which device will Xiaomi announce at the MWC next month.
In any case, let's wait till we have an official announcement from LG.
