Sprint: our first 5G phone by LG will have 'shiny' and 'distinct' design
Thanks to Mishka Dehghan, the Vice President of 5G development at Sprint Business, the mysterious LG phone is starting to get more fleshed-out. Previously, we only knew that the device will be a "beautifully-designed advanced 5G smartphone," but now it turns out that it could very well come in a unique form factor.
Apart from repeating that it's going to be a "distinct" and "beautiful, shiny object," the VP chimed in the following:
This certainly piques our interest towards the form factor, as, apart from writing 5G with big yellow letters on the back of the Sprint phone, we don't really see how could the LG handset scream next-gen connectivity.
Samsung's first foldable phone could turn out to also be its first global 5G handset, as the Galaxy S10 will only have a 5G model for Korea, and Huawei's eventual bendable handset is also tipped to be its first 5G effort, but will LG try something as funky with Sprint's 5G model design? Remains to be seen.
