We are fast approaching one of the most exciting smartphone events of the year — the Mobile World Congress, which will kick off on the 25th of February. Though, in recent years, manufacturers have scheduled their new phone announcements outside of MWC, it's still a marker for the period when we see hot new flagships from Samsung, Sony, LG, among others.
Last year, LG took its sweet time with the G7 ThinQ
, announcing it all the way in May and releasing it in June, two and a half months after Samsung had already dropped the Galaxy S9
. So, we are unsure when LG might choose to release its next flagship — the presumed LG G8
. Some reports suggested that the company is considering returning to the time-old tradition of announcing it at MWC
, but the decision had, allegedly, not yet been made. Now, a new rumor reiterates that LG will be unveiling the G8 at the tech superevent.
Korean media ETNews (translated
) reports that LG will be holding an event on the 24th of February at 10 AM Korean time ( Feb 23rd 8 PM EST / Feb 23rd 5 PM PST / Feb 24th 1 AM GMT) where it will showcase the new LG G8 ThinQ
. It's safe to assume that the company will then have a spot at MWC where techies and media will have a chance to get their hands on the new flagship for the first time.
