The LG G8 are launched at 10am on Feb twenty four, ETNews reported last week. It conjointly reported a time for the launch - 10am. However, going by Google Translate, it's unclear if the publication is concerning South Korean standard time or port (where the Mobile World Congress, or MWC, is held) standard time. If the previous, the launch can happen at 6:30am IST and 2am CET, that appears unlikely if it's to be a MWC 2019-focused event. If the latter (much additional likely), the LG G8 launch can happen at 10am CET, or 6pm Korean time and 2:30pm IST. This year, MWC 2019 is scheduled to start on Feb twenty five and endure until Feb twenty eight. With a Feb twenty four launch, LG is reported to unveiled the LG G8 simply prior to MWC, one thing that in itself isn't uncommon - most major smartphone makers hold pre-MWC events to showcase their latest offerings.
As we have a tendency to mentioned, the ETNews report claimed the LG G8 are launched with a triple rear camera setup, and also the 3 lenses will supply a 3D shooting setup. The report conjointly same the LG G8 can feature a waterdrop-shaped show notch, one thing many smartphone makers have adopted within the recent past, and be power-driven by the top-end flower 855 SoC that is conjointly expected to be used by Samsung, Sony, and Xiaomi on their anticipated individual Galaxy S10, Xperia XZ4, and Mi nine flagships, and confirmed by OnePlus to get on consecutive flagship from the corporate.
So far, solely Samsung has confirmed a launch date for its next generation Galaxy S-Series flagship - it'll be launched on Feb twenty. If the ETNews report is to be believed, it seems LG has rapt up the launch of its flagship G-Series smartphone this year - to recall, its precursor, the LG G7 ThinQ ₹ twenty nine,990, was launched in might last year. The ETNews report corroborates another recent report by South Korean publication Naver, that conjointly claimed the LG G8 are launched at MWC 2019. Notably tho', the Naver report had conjointly elaborate a collapsable smartphone by LG would be launched within the same time-frame, that includes associate add-on show. We'll simply got to wait and see. The ETNews report but doesn't corroborate leaked renders shared by advisor Onleaks, that show a twin rear camera setup and a regularly-shaped notch.
